A trilogy in
5 four parts.
Matt just likes to pull strings…
You can tell, that first couple of frames were drawn by a wooden man, who later became a “real boy!” *in a high-pitched voice*
Jokes aside, I really do need to warm up first, and then draw seriously.
What the heck, where all this fluff are coming from?! Geez! Stop it, really, we have here a manly man, baby-wimps are not allowed! Gahh…
Ah! Also, kindly reminder, that this
could also be this;
Have a nice nightmares.
pfffffffft Nightmares? I for one welcome all-powerful overlord matt. cannot possibly be worse than the current management.
also awww~ is his own slightly backwards way, Mittens always says the cutest things. I think being so genuine and awkward helped him get passed the boss’s bravado to find the lumbering, lonely, teddybear underneath.
being the boss’s boyfriend also comes with the perks of being able to defuse the saint’s anger with cute attacks. A weapon Matt wields like a signature edition, all-metal, replica of nyte blayde’s katana.
Lux doesn’t have any true phobias, although the fear of losing her gang to her own failings is always present in the back of her mind. She also hates open fire with every fiber of her being. After being blown to hell on that boat there’s just something about uncontrolled flames bearing down on her that gets her irrationally angry.
A fireplace with a grate is acceptable (probably only saved from her ire because it’s cosy and kind of romantic), but open roaring flames with the possibility of being burnt to a crisp? Nah. She was far madder at Angel for making her do the trailblazing task than she was about the tiger.
Being able to command flames in the simulation helped her muscle past a lot of her defensive, restless, and angry behaviour regarding fire, but the initial irrational reaction still lingers.
As for Matt, I’m not too sure if he’s got any other real fears. Abandonment probably, the poor dear. ono
His fear of dying is something that Lux doesn’t really want him to get over. Don’t get me wrong, she has shown him time and again that she’ll protect him and not let anything bad happen to him. She’s firmly in his corner and doesn’t want him to be stressed or scared, but when it comes down to it his fear of death helps keep him alive. Lux knows that so long as he’s afraid of dying he’s not about to jump in-front of danger and do something dumb (like she would).
Because honestly? Losing Matt like that is her newest, strongest, fear.
ta-daa! I decided to make a process pictures, and show everything, kind of.
Boss and his favourite nerds.
I love the little details here. particularly on matt’s tie and Kinzie’s hoodie strings.
also bosses acting like parents for the rest of the crew is one of the best things. Having to lead a bunch of exceptional misfits is not an easy thing to do.
I guess without a context (or whole picture) this looks weird. Whatever.
Can you guess whose butts this is? I bet you can.
I doubt I’m ever going to finish this, so the initial sketch will have to do.
something tells me that jacket is not zipping up over Lux’s boobs. Matt probably likes it better that way.
Ah yes, bisexuality by the numbers. I myself am only 93% bisexual. Study as I might I just can’t seem to make up the last 7%.
But in all seriousness, the gifset is based on tv tropes. Bisexuality is not a trope. ‘Ambiguously Bi' is a trope, and it fits Matt well.
"So there’s this person who seems to flirt with everyone. Maybe he has a suspiciously large number ofmoments; or maybe he just doesn’t care about the sheer amount of that he seems to have. They might not say so, and their sexuality might not even become an issue, but there is a decent chance that they might be .”
Let me just preface this by saying that yes, I firmly believe -I know- that Matt is bisexual. I know it, you know it, Volition knows it, the fandom knows it. I’m in no way trying to erase this adorable slice of representation. But in terms of the trope:
Sorry guys but Ruby is bang on here. As much as I would like to give volition full marks for a bisexual character, it’s not enough to imply bisexuality in the subtext.
Some hastily scribbled outfits for Matt that I thought would look cute on him. I’ve had these lying around for a long time - I had planned to draw more and to line and colour them all, but isn’t that always the way?
In order: casual at home, warm casual at home, every day, ‘demure’ dressy, flashy dressy.
Matt looks good in anything. Doubly so if it has tight pants.

I love TV tropes Gifs, because unlike regular gifs these tell you things about the character. (well more things)
Matt’s page in particular is an odd mix of badass/nerdy/villen tropes. I think it’s partly due to the fact he was invented to be hated but he ended up being too sympathetic to end up with the usual righteous death scene.
i’d like to think Matt surprised everyone with how cute he ended up being.
