Smithson Thus Far... ·


Shaenon: Believe it or not, I did this illustration three years ago for a marriage equality fundraiser in which I volunteered to go totally fangirl and draw any of my characters in same-sex pairings (thanks very much to everyone who participated!). Now that it's canonical, I'm making it available in desktop wallpaper form.

As usual, if you make a donation in any amount to the Skin Horse Tip Jar, I will send you a link to the wallpaper. Each wallpaper design comes in two different aspect ratios (regular screen and widescreen) to fit most computer monitors, and in both Mac-friendly and PC-friendly orientations. Here's the wallpaper page.

Channing: And lo, what once was merely fansquee is now canon. The wheel turns. I should not that I've always enjoyed this bit of art, and am glad for the canonization.

Kay Gilbert (kaygilbert) says:

@Shaenon: Adorable!  Of course, if you're drawing same-sex pairs, this one inspires better visuals than Nick and Moustachio, or Gavotte and Sweetheart (although it might be intriguing to see parts of Unity and other parts of Unity).  Who suggested Artie and Tip?  Did that inspire the canon, or were you and Jeff already going there?

@Jeff: "Fansquee" is my new favorite word.  Did you coin it?  ("You can make up a word.  Just think it up out of your head . . .")

tune: "Raise your glass," P!nk (or, in Spanish, P¡nk)

Hot guy, sensuous lips
This could cause a paradigm shift of
Playing for the other team
All it can mean to be a drag queen
Tip is gonna see

Artie likes 'em human like him
Gowns and earrings, pearls and fur trim
Hear the fansquee, sex we foresee
For Artie and Tip

So raise your glass to celebrate our favorite 'shipping
Artie N. and Tip
They will always be always be
Hot and handsome, pretty, dishy, bishi
Wowee, yaoi dreams
So let's all raise a glass
Come on and come on and raise a glass
Now for Shaenon and Jeff we will raise a glass
As we dissolve into one big mass

Jeffrey Channing Wells (channing) says: @Kay -- I don't know how things work up here and honestly can't remember if I coined it, but a quick Googling of the word suggests that if I did make it up, many people also arrived at the same point independently. Convergent meme evolution FTW!
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

(TUNE: "Love And Marriage", Cahn & Van Heusen)

Tip and Artie, Tip and Artie,
Psychoanalyst and super-smartie!
Listen to the fansquees,
They hug each other with a ... man squeeze!

Hearts and flowers, hearts and flowers,
See them exercise their superpowers!
Powers interacting!
Not opposites, yet they're at-trac-ting!

Two, two, two, together they go!
That took some plannin'!
Drew, drew, drew this picture years ago ...
And now it's canon!

Tip and Artie, Tip and Artie!
Give a cheer that's loud and clear and hearty!
You'll hear no complainin'!
The fans go squee!
We all agree
We love Jeff-rey
And we love Shae-non!

Joyce Melton (halfelven) says:

If your characters were real, this would be an example of life imitating art. As it is, I guess it's just a case of Artie initiating Tip.

joe dreyfuss (jdreyfuss) says:

Do you have one of girl Dave and Helen?

Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:

Joe: I did indeed.
Justin Kane (avatarjk137) says:

I am amused by the early!Tip with his arm hair.  This was back when he made no effort to look feminine beyond hair and clothes.

vicka corey (drbrain) says:

y'know, i should have noticed that it just said "skin horse" and not "narbonic and skin horse" :)
