Bjartur gisson

|| Appears 16-17
|| Birthday: August 2
|| "Westman Islands"
|| Speaks: Icelandic, English, Danish

|| Appearance ||

He has a somewhat ashy blonde hair with a strand/lock standing up on top to represent the island of Surtsey (It is NOT an erogenous zone, but if you pull on it, he'll get annoyed because in real life no one is allowed to step foot on Surtsey, other than scientists for research.) His hair is a bit like Iceland's, having a rather "bedhead"-like appearance and kind of messy because of the strong winds around his place. His eyes are a deep brown color.
Westman wears a navy blue jacket with red cuffs and matching blue pants. Underneath his jacket is a grayish dress shirt. He also wears dark gray boots which come in handy when it comes to hiking around the terrain and steep slopes.
He is often seen with a puffin named Fria (meaning "peace" in Icelandic). She's only distinguished from the other puffins by the semi-yellow flower loosely tied around her neck (most likely an Icelandic poppy flower).She is a representation of the Westman Islands' vast puffin population, which is one of the largest in the world.

|| Personality ||

Vestmannaeyjar lives a simple and quiet life, taking pleasure in the nature around him. He tries to act serious and responsible, but is quite clumsy and immature at times. He tries to be like Iceland and keep a "cool" temper, but ends up being quick tempered. He is somewhat shy towards strangers, but welcoming. It takes him a while to open up to someone, but once he does, they'll see that he's more outgoing than he appears. That energetic and mischievous personality that he hides is usually only open around people he's close with. Bjartur likes telling jokes, although sometimes his jokes don't make sense to anyone but himself. During August is his festival known as jht where, to put it short, Bjartur gets a bit wild and things get out of hand. He's a great fisher and is known for his excellent agility in scaling up steep slopes and cliffs in order to gather bird eggs when the season is right. That has been a tradition in his islands for centuries, and also considered the municipality's own national sport, despite it being a very dangerous and challenging one. Another thing he enjoys is football (or as Americans call it, soccer). There's a sports team called IBV Vestmannaeyjar, and Bjratur likes to take part in it from time to time. He may also go out to play golf, as his place is known to be one of the best and top-rated golf areas in the world.
For much of his past he was known for his poverty and difficult to access land. Despite his poor state foreign sailors/pirates continued to rob him, which built a sort of paranoia among the population. Because of this Westman received some help from Denmark when it came to defense.



Please don't be upset with me. I look at fridge porn with my brother.
I was going through files on my laptop and deleting useless ones since I need to get my laptop ready for school. And I happened to stumble upon a plot I wrote a long time ago but don't know if I ever shared or not. I don't think I'm going to be continuing it anytime soon since I have a lot to do, but it's good to keep it in mind for the distant future when I have time to draw out the pages and stuff. 

Title: Ashfall 


Near the distant future; Katla has erupted

            After years of being overdue for an eruption, Katla, one of Iceland’s major volcanoes, has finally erupted. At first the eruption only causes a disruption in air traffic across Europe and parts of North America, but as the weeks continue the volcano proves to have become a larger international threat similar to the 1783 eruption of Laki. The global climate starts to drop, bringing upon harsher winters and crop failures across the northern hemisphere. As the sky is blanketed with a noxious mixture of poisonous and acidic gases from the volcano’s ashes, populations in various countries begin to suffer from respiratory diseases and ultimately, death. With the mortality rate rising from Katla’s short-term and long-term effects, Iceland becomes plagued by haunting nightmares and the overwhelming guilt of having claimed the lives of thousands of people.


    ·         Glacier on top of Katla melts, washing away roads around the area

    ·         Farms are covered with volcanic ash

    ·         Major impact on air traffic

    ·         Increased coughing and eye and skin irritation; lung conditions

    ·         Cooldown in temperatures; sulfur released from volcanic eruptions can cool the Earth; sulfur forms sulfuric acid droplets that can block the sunlight hitting the Earth; these sulfur infused droplets can stay in the atmosphere for a year

    ·         Laki eruption in the past caused extreme weather across the world and contributed to rise of respiratory diseases

    ·         Eruption lead to acid rain (acid coating on volcanic ash is removed by rain); acid rain pollutes local water supplies and causes damage to vegetation;
livestock affected 

I also have the cover page sketched out it seems. It's not outlined or coloured yet, but it has Iceland being pulled underwater by shadowy hands and arms (represented either by his nightmares in the plot, or the souls of people who died as a result)

((wow I die on this acount and this is how I make my comeback: through a sketchy thing done at 2 in the morning.

I miss drawing Bjarturrrr. His hair's supposed to be damp which is why it's flatter, but I'm not sure how well that came out. DANG THOUGH, I never draw stuff like this.

[edit] SHET I FORGOT THE BURN ON HIS ARM. Lemme add that in real quick))
