Puzzle 013 - Deadly Nightshade by nattherat Puzzle 013 - Deadly Nightshade by nattherat
Part of the Layton 100 theme challenge ( [link] )!

Here we have 13 - Flora

Are you ready for some headcanon?! The Deadly Nightshade is the name of Flora's mysterious alter ego she develops given a few years of living with Professor Layton. Inspired by the infamous criminals of the archaeology field such as Mr Jean Descole and Miss Lara Croft as well as her own adoptive father, Flora aspires to subvert the classist and sexist barriers inflicted on her by society and become an enigma. Too doting to discourage her, and so aware of her social lot that he even endorses it just a little, Layton doesn't stop her pursuing this dream. Although so far her nightly adventures have only seen her smash a window and graze her knees a few times, Flora is determined to make a name for herself in the only way society will allow her.

Her outfit is a modified version of her disguise from Curious Village, with little extra touches like her mini Layton hat. :XD: I really should have done a background for this one, but it happened rather spontaneously and by the time I thought about it, she was inked in her floating pose. XD

Deadly Nightshade is actually another name of the Belladonna flower which would fit her name, Flora. Coincidentally, in Professor Layton vs. Ace Attorney the German name of the first culprit in the witch trials is Bella Dorner, a play on the flower's name which also fits as she is a killer.

Excuse me, this is the CAP (Cuteness Anomaly Police). You must dispose of this drawing immediately, or the sheer volume of its adorableness will become unable to be supported by the universe and it will tear a hole in space-time, and we will all die. Thank you.

This looks really adorable~!

I can't help but smile looking at Flora's expression, you can tell that she's trying her hardest to look sinister, but it's really just coming across as adorable. xD The outfit choice is great too - the dark greens of the Curious Village outfit are better suited to what you're going for here and the tiny top hat is a nice touch.

And I'm sure that Miss Croft is a wonderful influence for her, based on everything you've told me. I can only imagine where that headcanon might lead.

Ah, because of Sally gathering some deadly nightshade? :XD: I think a couple of people have been reminded of that, which surprises me! I would have thought most people would be more familiar with the real deadly nightshade (can't remember it's latin name, who does?) plant, rather than tNBC, but oh well! :D

Glad you like it!

I imagine Flora would do something like this, but in a way that she's seen as a vigilante rather than a straight up criminal, since her morals are still intact, and I doubt they'd stray too much.

That is the point! Don't be fooled by the determined expression, this isn't 'evil Flora'.

In that case, a mask probably would have fit her better, at least that's what I would've done.

Haha she isn't evil in this, though perhaps a little misguided! She just wants to be cool and revered like the famous figures she looks up to.

Glad you like it!

Yes, too many ducks! XD Also, two lots of really bad illness which haven't been fun. I've got your stuff all packaged up nice and sturdy (I think you'd need industrial level tools to break through it) though and ready to go when I stop being too dizzy to go to a post office! :heart:

No problem, take your time! I'm also recovering from being sick, and trying to get back into normalcy after the hurricane. So take your time.
