So I'mma talk at y'all a little bit about the collaborative storyworld I work on with a group of friends titled The Son of Ink.

The Son of Ink (SOI) was created by thelostmoongazer and spudinacup over on tumblr early last year as a spinoff AU from Bendy and the Ink Machine. However, it's since separated itself from the source material and evolved into it's own sort-of fandom between many different contributors.

Definitely the best possible (ab)use of an embroidery machine. #gritty #philly

First big commission I did for a friend of their #OC with another's, from #SonofInk . I listened to a lot of sappy old jazz/lounge music while drawing this

(also yes their noses/skintone are like that for a reason™, i swear i know what i'm doing)

NEW FOLKS: you should also know that you can turn off boosts from a certain person if you like their toots but not the stuff they repost.

(You can also turn off reposts completely in the web app, but it won't carry over to other apps.)

The story itself mainly centers in 1930's New York City, so there's a lot of themes about mobsters, speakeasies that kind of aesthetic.

Though there's no one plotline, more the interconnected ones people have collaborated on between each other's characters. So it's open for other people to participate in as well! We even have a discord setup for it

Some lines of born toons have diverged over time from their demonic/angelic origin to have more animalistic, fae-like or elemental-esque features. Some also resemble objects (ie. Cuphead).

There are many different kinds of OCs people have created for this world, though most adhere to an 80% real 20% fantasy limit to prevent OP character abilities.

These creatures gained the nickname 'toons' once the age of animation began, since they looked similar to cartoons of that age, however they aren't actually cartoons and there's no cartoon physics in this world.

Toons can also be born naturally like people through interbreeding with other toons or humans. Their offspring will usually have a mix of their parents' physical traits.

The result being the host body returning to life, the previous soul replaced with whatever was summoned, along with physical changes to the body to reflect that including skin tone change (black and/or white is most common from ink), and typical features of angels and demons ie. horns, wings, tails, halos etc.

These creatures function just as humans do, though they retain non of the host's memories, nor their own angelic/demonic origins.

SOI takes place on our Earth, in a historically accurate timeline centering around 1932 through the 1950's and beyond. The one big difference is that somewhere way back in human history, they figured out how to reanimate the dead by shoving the soul of an angel or demon into a human vessel by means of sort-of FMA-esque rituals involving ink.
