when he leaves khaz modan, honeydew is constantly reminded that he’s a inferior dwarf. that he can’t reach certain things, that he looks at things in a simplistic way, that he’s different in a bad way. people make jokes (teasingly and otherwise) and mess with him, but he tries to take it in stride.
and then xephos comes. xephos, who’s adjusting to an alien planet, thinks everyone is odd. honeydew isn’t more strange than other people, just strange in a different way. and in time they become friends and honeydew finds himself, for the first time, reminding someone else that he’s a dwarf
"i’ve only got little legs!"
"i’m a dwarf! digging holes is all i do!"
and suddenly his race isn’t a shameful thing. with or without realizing it, honeydew is suddenly taking ownership of his identity.
Finally drew Zoey and Fiona~ I like how the atmosphere came out. (8w8)
