guess who exists now
a shield bearer’s shield often has a bludgeon or hard point on the front so like at first she’d just charge in and shield ram but get overextended and become defenceless because a tower shield is only really useful when the enemy is on on one side
hm yes that sounds like her
hmm i still have some issues with her usefulness in battle regarding this, but if i go for this sort of thing as her “weapon” she’d mostly likely have a normal, physical shield that can project force fields. so best of both worlds.
I would love to see more bug people drawn with abdomens. Many people just cut those off when they design arthropod characters. That’s where all their guts are. :’c
Haha yeah… admittedly mcm is not as governed by “logic” as some of my other stories, but that’s definitely true, and the constancy bugged me a lot. Level of anthropomorphization in mcm is pretty important because the sapient insects all have four limbs, and the “animals” have six. With arachnids it goes six=sapient and eight=non-sapient, and crustaceans eight=sapient and ten=non-sapient.
Since the insects are the majority, there is a considerable amount of racism against arachnids and crustaceans because they more closely resemble non-sapients. Arachnids particularly, as most of them are carnivores (another persecuted minority)
Its kind of puzzling about their standards of decency with the abdomens though. Since all of the reproductive organs and the anus are generally at the end of the abdomen, why are they covering mostly their thorax?? it is a mystery
Also I think I’m going to bite the bullet and give everyone in MCM abdomens. Some of the original designs had abdomens and some didn’t and it’s been driving me crazy so nope everyone gets them now
maybe a shield?
A shield would actually be super interesting, but I sort of need her to have some attack capabilities… if she only has a shield she’d just be standing around doing nothing in the battles and there wouldn’t really be a reason for her to be there? It would be interesting if she had some sort of (much more obviously magical) ability to sheild her teammates in battle, like through force fields… but the original plan for her development was that she needs to be sheilded/protected/helped by her teammates, not vice versa, but the opposite would also be an interesting character arc. Hm!
A lot about this story’s plot is nebulous right now, so who knows. force fields could be p damn cool
The thing is that the mushi girl’s weapons are supposed to parallel their character development.
Eg, Creme has this bigass heavy sword because she doesn’t really have any confidence in herself and her ability to do things. She is very meek. She needs mental and physical strength to properly wield her sword, and she gains that over the course of the story. Berry is a super active girl who is really brash and charges into things without thinking and will always use brute force to get what she wants. She has a polearm, because it takes skill and control to use— if you carelessly whack it against stuff it will a) not be terribly effective and b) possibly snap in half. Which is not terribly pleasant for Bolt. So she learns self control and patience through her weapon.
But i have no idea what to do for Citron. Because her deal is she is a haughty loner who takes help from no one, and this can end up hurting her and driving people she actually does need away. So she needs a weapon that makes her dependent on her teammates to fight effectively. I was thinking maybe a sniper because she needs them to lure the quarry into the right spot; or pistols, because she needs her teammates to give her openings to shoot, but, hm. I feel like they don’t quite work, and are redundant with another shooter (Tea) in the group.
Hypothetical Mushi Cure Magika weapons??
More like “let’s draw 50 different versions of this polearm that are all terrible”
Peach: Brass Knuckles/Gauntlets
Tea: Bow And Arrow
Citron: A gun of some sort. Probably double pistols? Or a sniper rifle? Or maybe not even a gun, who knows.

More teeny pixel babies, this time it is unamed villain girl, Eclair, Ginger, Clover, and unamed love interest. High-rez for better resolution.
Here is an improved version that is also not weirdly compressed by tumblr formatting, hopefully.
This is the six main girls of Mushi Cure Magika as tiny pixel babies.
The majority of the student population at Round Meadow High School is ants and bees from the local hives. Here are two of the Peach’s thousand or so sisters and also some bee chick.
Eclair models lolita, one of her favorite fashions.
