Steve, Alex and Herobrine headcanons, mostly explaining backstory/characterization and what-not
The only one who was part of, for lack of a better term, the Old World.
They don't really remember much of anything about it, although they recall a bit more than when they first awoke with basically no memory. He has the vague knowledge there used to be more of him––that is, more players.
He also remembers the ships. And the fire.
(Specifically, I'm referring to that one biome that generated in the infinity snapshot that was a fleet of end ships. Y'know, the ones that also had orders like "cut," "obliterate," etc.? Yeah.)
Steve hasn't explained anything of the Old World to Alex, and hasn't said much of what his life was like prior to meeting Alex. He isn't ready to.
They have a degree of caution with just about everything. While Alex is totally fine with taking some fall damage from a few 4-block drops, Steve tries to find a path that avoids said damage––even if it's a very long and inconvenient path.
They've only ever been a part of the New World––that is, the recovering world after something destroyed essentially everything of the Old World. Alex just thinks this is how the world's always been.
They take a lot of new info with a shrug and "Okay!", even in the case when Steve introduced them to Herobrine. Everything is new to them, so there isn't a lot that strikes them as not belonging/illogical.
That doesn't mean she's naïve, though. She's cautious with any new mob she comes across, and is very good at determining if there's any hostility. She also recognizes that Steve avoids talking about life prior to their meeting.
She's outgoing and likes hanging out in villages. She can't understand the villagers and vice versa, but they can still have something like a conversation.
Her favorite weapon is the trident with Riptide. Fork go whoosh.
They're very quiet and rarely speak. Mostly, they just observe.
They sometimes try to do things that Steve does, like mine and farm. They don't totally understand the purpose of why Steve does these things, though, and so they end up with extensive 2 × 2 mines that leave behind all the ores and leafless trees as they think mining anything foliage-wise is farming.
They got better about it once Steve took the time to explain why. Now Steve and Alex will find random small farms (wheat, potato, carrot) about the world.
They're a manifestation of loneliness, of wanting to be seen, of wanting someone to mine and build with, of wanting someone to share food with––of the universe wanting anybody else, when all the universe had was itself.
They spend a good amount of time in the Nether, watching lava bubble in the lava seas. They find it calming.
[Teaser] Coming Soon...
Coming in February 2021...
Hi there! I'm Helios and this blog will soon be the home to my main fancomic, my Minecraft comic whose story I've been working on for several years now! This comic is the basis of the story behind my Minecraft OC Ask Blog, and I'm so excited to bring this to you all! This story is my pride and joy!
I hope you'll stick around, everyone!
So, I'm revamping my Minecraft comic... :3c
Peach, absolutely gobsmacked, talking to Steve: You put how much milk in your cakes?!?
#ASDJKADSHJKADS #PEACH LISTEN OKAY #HE MAKES CAKES A METER WIDE OKAY #THAT REQUIRES LOTS OF MILK #funny stuff #text #math's text #super smash bros. ultimate #minecraft #super mario bros. #other's text #omg this made my morning #i sometimes think the same thing #then i remember how big cakes in minecraft are7 notes
🌳 People argue over Steve's skin tone all the time because he's darker skinned by default, but!!! I think he and Alex are shapeshifters! The proof?
🌳 These are their skins in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. They're obviously shapeshifters and can appear however they want to whoever they want! That's why Steve and Alex's skin tone varies from artist to artist! :0c
"Do I look like––?!"
[Arc 1 | Part 1] Unwell
Celina looks at Brine with worry, feeling her brows furrowing.
Celina: "Brine, lean on me, okay? I know you're not feeling very strong right now."
Brine nodded, putting his weight against his wife to support himself.
Brine: "I... I hope this goes away soon. I feel horrible."
Celina: "I know, Brine. I'll help you get better, okay?"
[Hi, guys! As you could see in my previous posts, I'm using Minecraft screenshots for backgrounds! I think this is working out pretty well.
Anyways, we're gonna start our first little event/arc! :D Feel free to interact as we get further! Even if you don't have any OCs, you can send asks!]
I'm starting my first little arc over on my Minecraft blog! Looks like Brine isn't feeling too well! :0
A Big World Out There
[I had said it over on my main blog here that I've been struggling a lot with backgrounds as of late in my Minecraft art. I had seen an old friend of mine do this, but I've decided to use Minecraft screenshots I take as backgrounds! :D
Here's something I did of Celina, Steve, and Brine as a test for it!
I wonder what Celina's talking about? :0c]
Here's what I did after I got a couple of replies to my musing earlier! I think it actually looks really nice!
In Hell I'll Be In Good Companysupermario -
A bit of an outdated headcanon used in this fic, but hey.
Summary: While in a Nether Fortress, Steve contemplates a Wither skeleton.
Rating: Rated T for Teens
Warnings: Some violence; Discussion of death; Death of a mob
Word Count: 623
Steve grunted as he stood up, still gazing at the creature. He found it odd how passive the mobs would become once they realized they couldn't get to him––he would even say they looked peaceful, curious, examining him like he did with them. But he also knew the moment the wall was down, the mob wouldn't hesitate to kill him.
"You gonna stay there?" he asked.
Of course, just like every other mob, even with the intelligent testificates and piglins, the Wither skeleton didn't understand him. It simply watched him.
He raised his diamond sword, making it gleam in the light of the lava source in the middle of the room. "You know I've killed thousands of you, right?"
It mindlessly opened and closed its jaw, showing off its few remaining hole-ridden teeth.
He lowered the weapon, his faraway gaze dropping to the floor. "And you've killed thousands of me."
It clattered, and Steve took it as acknowledgment of his words.
"You don't know that, though," he continued. "As far as you know, this is the first time you've ever seen me."
He paused a beat, eyeing the creature. It was a miracle it could even stand, let alone walk and run. Its bones looked brittle enough that Steve could just reach over and snap any with ease. It would be a bad idea, however; instantly, whatever had overtaken the skeleton would seep into Steve's skin and make his muscles feel like they were being chewed into. He knew how painful it was to die that way.
A pang of guilt and pity hit Steve. "I know words don't really mean much to you anymore, but I'm sorry this is what you've become. I... I really am."
It said nothing in return.
"Maybe... Maybe I can make it up to you. One day." He let out a long sigh. "Another world. Not this one. The world, not just this one, it's still so... damaged. It's recovered so much, but it still needs to heal." Steve glanced to the right hallway, which opened up to reveal hundreds of blocks of Nether wastes. A distant grumble emanated from the red fields.
He then closed his eyes, took a breath and opened them again, raising his sword once more. "Well, I have a temporary solution for now, at least."
One sideways swing was all it took for its skull to fly off, its body crumbling and breaking off into soot and ash. Surprisingly, the skull didn't turn to ash, and instead clanked against the brick flooring and rolled, stopping next to the hallway wall. Steve raised a brow as he took down the wall and made his way to the skull, bending down to look at it. As the Wither skeleton was dead, its withering effect had died with it, letting Steve pick its skull up without any pain.
Steve stared into its sockets. "It has been a while since I've defeated the Wither," he mused. "I guess you could consider that another temporary solution."
Knowing that it truly wasn't a solution at all to the world's hurt, he tucked the skull underneath his arm and began his walk out of the fortress, thinking of the past the whole while.
Some more (s'more?) SSBU Steve and Alex headcanons
(The first two bullets imply past animal death, if you want to avoid that.)
Steve forfeited a match once they saw their opponent was the Duck Hunt Duo. They've refused matches against the duo since.
Alex has tried to explain that his reluctance has to do with an incident that involved Steve's first (and only) tamed wolf. Most pick up on what Alex is trying to convey and leave it at that.
A lot of people misinterpret Steve and Alex's relationship, thinking they are romantically involved. The two are really close and sometimes refer to each other as "partner," but it's all platonic.
Alex tried to use beds in a match against Ridley, once. It didn't go as Alex expected it would (though she still won the fight).
Sans did the usual "appear unexpectedly" shtick when he greeted Steve. Steve got startled and nearly punched him without thinking (and would have, if Sans wasn't so good at dodging).
Steve and Alex (and really anyone from the Minecraft 'verse except maybe the Ender Dragon) don't have genders. Steve predominantly uses he/they pronouns while Alex uses she/they.
Steve and Alex show Villager cool rocks and ores while Villager shows Steve and Alex cool bugs and fish.
I don't know Bayonetta that well, but I just have this feeling that Alex and Bayonetta would make good friends.
Alex knows more about redstone than Steve, though Steve does know how to make a simple sugar cane/bamboo farm.
Edit: fixed some typos.
Super Smash Bros. headcanons with a focus on Steve and Alex, because I am predictable.
Alex has a way easier time talking to the other Smashers and becoming friends with them compared to Steve––not because Steve is mean by any stretch of the imagination, but because he was a loner for a long time until he met Alex and doesn't really know how to make friends. Alex helps him out, though.
The first day at the Smash Mansion was a bit rough. Both Steve and Alex aren't used to so many people talking at the same time, nor the bright lights of electricity, nor the loud and alien modern appliances, etc., etc. They're still adjusting.
As a result, accommodations have been made for them, like torches in their rooms instead of lightbulbs, the addition of furnaces/smokers in the kitchen area, etc.
When Steve was shown his room, he placed a cobblestone block down in front of him before touching the bed. Master Hand didn't understand it, but Steve seemed relieved after doing it, so whatever.
After seeing Steve jump more than a meter (approx. 3.3 ft) into the air, Mario joked about him being a jumpman. Steve replied by blinking and asking what a man was.
The Smashers woke up one day to see the entire place lit up with torches. Any nook or cranny that could conceivably hold a shadow had a torch in it. Steve explained that all the lights had gone out and he didn't want mobs to spawn, especially since the night lasted for way longer then it's supposed to. Alex explained that she got bored.
In general, Steve and Alex are also having to adjust to the weird day-night cycle.
Luigi mentioned seeing a weird apparition that looked like Steve but with blank eyes one day. Steve told him it was nothing to worry about.
A wandering trader somehow made it into the Smash Mansion. Every single party involved was confused, especially Master Hand.
Steve and Alex found a companion in Mr. Game & Watch, considering they all could relate with the strangeness of being in a dimension so markedly different from your own.
One day, Ness happened to drop a yoyo and it rolled under a couch, so Alex just casually lifted the entire thing with ease above her head so he could get it. She doesn't understand why people were so impressed.
I love all of these so much. These are adorable!
The Abandoned Mansion
[We had a new set of prompts in the Aermerea Discord, and I decided to go with the "Haunted House" prompt and put my own Minecraft twist on it!
Michael and Marcel decide to check out an "abandoned" Woodland Mansion. ;D]
I wanted to reblog this comic I did over on my Minecraft OC blog, because I'm laughing so hard at it and I love it so much!

The Broken Flame-A Minecraft Fanfic by KingHelios33 on Archive of Our Own
🔥 I usually don't post links on my blog, but I really wanted to share my main Minecraft fanfic I've been working on. It's based on a Minecraft fancomic and original fic I had years ago and I've decided to revamp it and actually finish it!
🔥 It all sprouted from some sketches I did years ago with my character Celina, who was originally my persona, making friends with my version of Herobrine!
🔥 If you enjoy Minecraft stories or fics, or just want a good story, feel free to check it out! I would love to get this story out there since it's my pride and joy. I'm only two chapters in but have a lot planned for this story!
My Minecraft Switch House
🌹 I took these quite some time ago, but I felt like posting them today.
🌹 This is my Minecraft house on my Switch world! It's got a trellis, firepit with seats, waterfall and bridge over a tiny river, and a swing from an oak tree! :D
🌹 I made it in creative and switched my world to survivial so I'd have a nice house when I started. :3
Casey and Ingrid
A little gift for canofgaycubes over on Tumblr! I found them through their story, “We Are The Daylight” on Archive of Our Own and I have to say, their writing is so fantastic!
Anyways, I wanted to draw Casey for them, because xe seems like a really cool person!
Also, I wanted to draw xem with my Blaze humanoid, Ingrid, who also goes by xe/xem pronouns! A lot of the other Blazes try to make xem feel bad about being non-binary, but I feel like Casey would reassure xem that xir pronouns are valid!
Another drawing done for the Aermerea prompts!

🌳 I was playing Minecraft on my Switch and... I didn't know that abandoned villages were a thing?!
🌳 I found a village where the cobblestone in the houses was mostly mossy, there was cobwebs replacing some of the blocks on the houses and some of the farms were broken...
🌳 And any villagers I found were zombies!
🌳 It was really creepy and it honestly gave me chills... I didn't know that this was a thing!
