chrestomanci - drop it already by chirart chrestomanci - drop it already by chirart
Millie and Christopher Chant from Conrad's Fate, by Diana Wynne Jones.

So in my fanon, Christopher is very upfront about being heads over heels for Millie (he's only half-in love with her in Conrad's Fate already) and Millie has no patience for it because, augh, who would have the patience for Christopher! And rejects him. And he spends a good long time driving everyone else insane with his beyond-his-years epiphanies, whether they want to listen to him or not, about the woes of unrequited love, which leads to him having manly bonding discussions with Mordecai on the nature of how much love sucks for men over cricket. And Millie spends her time giving frustrated huffs over it with Conrad, who is also getting it from Christopher, and Conrad's just "look I don't blame you but can you two please stop talking to me about this I mean OH MY GOD."

Basically I want this romantic farce to happen.

omg love this.

Why is Millie 'largish' and dark-skinned? According to the book, she was agile and pale-skinned. Love Christopher though. Great work :)

Whoa. Hold up. There are more books in that universe other than Charmed Life?!
RipplingSharingan Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
There sure is! There's quite a few, including The Lives of Christopher Chant (about Christopher's childhood), Conrad's Fate (my personal favourite), Magicians of Caprona, Mixed Magics and the Pinhoe Egg. That is around chronological order, I recommend you check them out!

Thanks! I definitely will!

I want to read this book now. Because this is just too adorable. And your plotbunny made me laugh.

And for no reason at all, Christopher reminds me of Darren Criss. I think it's in the hair.

This is totally cute!

I looove Diana Wynne Jones! I've never read this series but I really think I should know. I love the poses here and thier expressions!
magfry Featured By Owner Jun 18, 2011
Oh man. Christopher + Millie = OTPOTPOTP
Neykorda Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2011
I favourite this as much for the picture (which is fabulously them) as for your description - with which I agree completely

This fandom needs more art, so thank you
unknownman10 Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2011
You do know Millie is very pale right? It says so in the first book.
Neykorda Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2011
Hahahaha! These were my favourite books as a kid, and somehow, they're still fabulous. The fact that is is /exactly/ what would happen is probably why...

I can completely imagine this happening.

I just want to favorite this over and over.

It puts a smile to my face and made me want to re-read Conrad's Fate.

I have roleplayed Millie in a Chrestomanci cast and yup, that's pretty much how she and Christopher were.
yellowcrayolacrayon Featured By Owner May 25, 2010
I love you and all, Christopher, but you belong with Millie. SERIOUSLY. :D:D:D

this makes me wanna read it =D I do like Jones's books though. I just haven't read all of them.

BielinFarmland Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2010
Fab, fab, fab. Totally hilarious
The-Color-Blue Featured By Owner Feb 21, 2010
Man you have no idea how glad I am to see fanart for this series :D I LOVE Christopher, he's hilarious. I don't imagine him saying he loves her outright, but can easily imagine him rattling off lists of lovey-dovey things they could do together and Millie not understanding the appeal at all xD

I've recently bought the first Chronicles of Chrestomanci, but have yet to read it.

So therefore:

Yay, I'm technically spoiling it for myself!
applecocacola Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2010
you should show this to Diana Wynne Jones and tell her all about it, and mayhaps she will utterly agree with you and tell you about her new novel which is ALL ABOUT THIS FARCE.
ragdolljazz Featured By Owner Jan 27, 2010
I've been browsing through your gallery and I must say I love it! ^^ And I really want to check out these books now, they seem really interesting :)
ColdomadeusX Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2010
I love Dianna Wynn Jone's books!!! ^__^
I hope you do more soon! Can you do some more Chrestomanci portraits? I love seeing full length Chrestomanci... gah... >__<

Thatu Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
YAY FOR CHRESTOMANCI FAN ART! AND YAY FOR CHRISTOPHER MILLIE! I've been planning on my Christopher/Millie story and it's sorta like that. I even can imagine him planning his vows: "Till death do us apart. and apart. and apart. and apart. and apart...." and he being jealous of her literature like "I don't see what she sees in this Mr. Darcy, Conrad. I can be mysterious, I can be taciturn, I can be unpleasant." "Oh, Christopher, you couldn't be more right." lol

I just love them as a couple. I just love them, I was so glad to search for Chrestomanci today and find three new fan arts. I check it eventually but I'm usually the only one drawing. Please do more, pleeease :~

kjahdskhadkahkda rofllll omg. I want to marry this comment. This may be the best comment I have ever gotten.

Thatu Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Yay! Maybe the awesomeness of my review might give you the urges to do some more fan arting!

chirart Featured By Owner Jan 25, 2010  Professional Digital Artist
I already am! No seriously I have been showing your comment to everyone and we are laughing in /hysterics/ it is so perfect. I would love to read your fic like WOAH.
Thatu Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes! As soon as I start my multi=chaptered, I'll send you the link, lol. I find it really hard to work on Diana books so I'm starting with a one-shot called "Sure-fire Slush" before I can work on the real thing, which will be the funny one. Still, as said before, writing Diana stuff is HARD x_X! Glad I made you laugh the "till death do us apart and apart..." is one of my favourite lines, a friend of mine said that was my finest hour and anything else I produce after that joke would be down the hill lol.

I also have the following line:

"You see, Conrad, Millie and I we were stuck in this unending tunel and once I found out she only had one life, I took it as my job to protect her and keep her safe no matter what, is the work of a gentleman. I suppose you could say I'm her knight in shinning armor."
"Try knight in shiny silk suit, Christopher."

Oh, poor Conrad.
Dragonzair Featured By Owner May 6, 2010
Sorry, I'm butting in... but your comments.

My heart for Millie and Chris keeps getting magnified by the minute. Have you by chance, already written these stories?
Thatu Featured By Owner May 6, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I just love you for asking! :hug: I've started them but since I'm not a natural English speaker, I fail to get the wanted results and keep writing and rewriting! I have the beggining of a one shot and some of the notes for a multi chaptered story! I'll keep fan arting for now but I'll let you know as soon as I post something *-*! :hug:
Dragonzair Featured By Owner May 6, 2010
Thanks for replying! <3

To be honest, I think your english is more than fine. But yay! Keep up with the Chrestomanci artsies as well! So hard to find DWJ stuff that isn't HMC (as much as I love it).

and yes! Please let me know :)

However I love their figure, your character rendering is always excellent <3

I do not know this canon, but I love that her build looks more solid than his. Haha, if Millie loses her patience, he might lose some HP /o/;; very cute
