I realized the moment I fell into the fissure that the Book would not be destroyed as I had planned. It continued falling into that starry expanse, of which I had only a fleeting glimpse. I have tried to speculate where it might have landed, but I must admit that such conjecture is futile. Still, questions about whose hands might one day hold my Myst book are unsettling to me. I know my apprehensions might never be allayed, and so I close, realizing that perhaps the ending has not yet been written. -- Atrus

Fan Stuff I Found During Random Google Image Search

Lately, out of the blue it seems, my fingers have been itching to pick up The Book of Ti'ana to read for, gosh, I don't know, the 10th time?  That's probably lightweight for some.  I haven't read the book, or even thought about it, in years, but suddenly I've become possessed by this desire to reread it.  It will be quite dangerous because my obsession with Veovis will reawaken and I will end up roaming my apartment in complete and utter despair.

On a whim I began Google image searching for drawings people have made of him.  The fan art is amazing (see below), but I imagine my Myst husband quite differently.  I think Shoomlah comes closest.  Some people give him white hair, many people give him long hair.  No, he's a hot, tall man with pale blue eyes and short, jet-black hair in a style akin to Christian Bale's.  Hmmm...He looks like Christian Bale with black hair and pale blue eyes.  Yes.  This is certain.  It is a fact!  If I could draw (which I can't), I would be able to express myself more clearly.  Hélas!  Here are the excellent drawings that I found:

That's what I have found so far.  I particularly like Shoomlah's stuff, as well as Artoveli's.  After Veovis, I started looking for some Aitrus stuff.  I'm really anxious to see the first generation I guess!  There were a lot of cute Aitrus-Anna ones which I thought were great.
Cute Aitrus and Anna pic...I don't know who made it, though

I was disturbed by this (I guess the D'ni do not make pretty babies!):

But this stuff that had me howling with laughter:




And my ultimate favorite, which has a number of hilarious and fabulous cartoons is this one.  The art is quite recent, so I look forward to more!  Here's an example:


Sirrus kinda looks like Flynn Rider from Tangled.  That's definitely not a bad thing.  I'm so jealous that so many people have such amazing drawing skills.  I wish I could draw these guys!!
