south Indian steampunk Engineer piccy  
I am very splat & having thermoregulation issues a-gain, so will be flaky on replying to anything, but rose_lemberg said to post this so here it is XD

drawing of a young, fat, dark-skinned, rather badass South Indian woman wearing a 9-yard sari with a utility belt and holding an adjustable wrench

This picture came about cause I was tired of multiple aspects of visual representation of South Asian characters.
1) They all seem to be skinny
2) They're mostly pale & with generic(Euro) features
3) They all seem to wear sad excuses for saris that are basically Victorian underwear plus a bit of gauze
4) Steampunking them up seems to often involve adding leather while keeping markers that say these are period brahmins wtf

So I drew someone who could be my period cousin :)

She should get a story once I'm doing better. I know some of it, but need to do research.
Also her sari is anachronistic & will have to be made more period once I have done said research.

If I have to live to 100 to read it, I will wait. And also, probably have to eat a little better...

If I can manage to get better, it shouldn't take too long? Though I have another story that really should come first in the pipeline...

Much mojo sent in the way of recovery.

I feel you on the story queue. I have one currently sitting there half done and I despise it, meanwhile a title ("Sincerely, the Spiders") has taken my brain.

Love the title but YOU MUST WRITE THAT STORY I WANT TO READ
