welcome to the artist's lair, home to the fictional characters that user369 has adopted or conceived.

James De Mesmaeker, aka "Mes"

"In true TOH fashion, I shall give my OC trauma"

  • they / them nb
  • age: probably not legal
  • species: ???
  • studying: Construction at
    Why Hexside?
    Because it's the most tolerating place to strangers (read: because we have principle Bump). St. Epiderm is too damn expensive + cares about their image more than the students, and Glandus High is wayyy too competitive + full of assholes. Hexside has a tradition of accepting runaways (looking @ Luz and Hunter rn) so I think realistically this is the only place Mes could be in.
  • mf (stands for monster fucker)

In a conversation with Owl Demon!Eda, Mes revealed that they were raised by Titans and are non-native to the Boiling Isles. This very much implies that they originated from the Titan Trappers Island. Mes' appearance is similar to that of a witch, and their eyes resemble the eyes of Titan Trappers, though, we still don't know if this is their "true" form or a camouflage.

One thing for sure is that Mes is not a Titan (Titans cannot use illusionist magic, or witches magic at all afaik), they could be:

  • a Titan Trapper witch
    • they look like one! they even have that Collector worshipping symbol on their forehead... or do they? this is the most possible scenario, however Mes is an orphan so we don't know for sure, their origin is still sussy af
  • a biped demon (species close to Kikimora / Osran)
  • a basilisk, like Vee
    • I was in favor of this theory, bc basilisks are extinct and the basilisks that are still alive were lab-raised by Belos, which might explain why Mes doesn't have parents. Out of the 5 basilisks raised by Belos, 3 escaped, one of them is Vee and we don't know abt others.
    • The only issue here is that basilisks are native to the Boiling Isles, and Mes is not. There was no record of basilisks on the Titan Trapper Island.
  • any other species, but with a Concealment Stone.
    • highly unlikely, since Mes appears to look like a witch ever since they were young, and to keep up appearance they'd have to carry the stone all the time which is kind of impossible.
  • a hybrid
    • now THIS is a theory I'd love to play with. As seen in the show, "half-a-witch" is flung around as some sort of insult, so life must've been fun for a kid who's literally half-witch and half-demon. Can you imagine the stigma.
    • I think this is how it went: father was a Trapper witch and mother was a biped demon, they were ostracized by society then killed, and what was left of them is a single mention in the history book of Titan Trappers' "glorious victories". Their child, Mes, luckily rescued by a tribe of Titans, was too young to rmb anything about their birth parents. Mes was brought up just like a Titan, until... genocide happens :D The Trappers came and killed off all Titans in the tribe, but mercied Mes because the kid apparently looked like a witch. This is the part where Mes had to come to term with the fact that they're not only a witch, but also one that's vaguely-discriminated-by-witches-for-whatever-reason. Mes was "adopted" by the Trappers tribe, but not so long after that they fled to the Boiling Isles yes I am shamelessly plugging my OC into the main storyline. Can you blame me tho? Luz is such a clumsy protagonist that every time she uses a portal there's a shit tons of things leaking between worlds and as a result Vee escaped to the Human Realm, Philips was led to the Collector and Belos parasited Hunter. Do I need to list out all of her portal-handling mistakes? I think letting Mes sneak into Boiling Isles is nothing but on brand for Luz.

      /j, ik it's not her fault and portals are leaky by nature.

Detachment: All in all, Mes has multiple disjointed backgrounds and as a result of moving a lot, they don't grow attach to people or places.

Identity crisis: As bad as it sounds. Studying at Hexside would be a chance for them to reconcile with their witch identity, i.e by adopting a witch identity that isn't as cult-like and blood-thirsty as the Trapper one. But also, their cultural upbringing was Titan which is why they're kind of feral (lol) and are attracted to monsters.

Palisman: Mes' palisman is an Army Ant (worker). I really like the idea of palismen being "service animals" (i.e for people with disabilities or mental illness), Flapjack handle Hunter's entire mental health. Lilith's palisman resemble the chaotic vibe of Eda and Eda's palisman resemble the calm vibe of Lilith, I think this is because they were best friends in their childhood and then grew apart, but parts of them still need each other, etc... But also that Lilith & Eda are like 2 sides of the same coin and... ah shit this is getting long I'm putting this in a notation Ants are very small and social creatures and a symbol of collaborative effort, Mes is small and socially disable so I think an ant could be a great helper. Plus ants are like, nature's architects and they can lift 100x their body weight, which is also a match with Mes being in the Construction Coven and using the Power Glyph, a magic glyph exclusive to the Coven that can magnify their strength.

  • Some more reason to choose ants: they're very small, which is a hint to Mes' attention to small details over large constructions. If anything, Mes is good at dismantling large things by, let's say, removing small essential elements. It's similar to the way that ants attack their large enemies.
  • Army Ants species tend to move their colony instead of staying in one place, they're nomads and scavengers, and they're always at war just like the kid.

Cobblercore: SO ANW, Mes' design was inspired by (if not completely ripped off from) the Cobbler from Thief & Cobbler, an animated movie conceived in the 1960s. I'd say Mes is a word that I just made up in a lot of ways:

  • my headcanon is that Mes was from a tribe of blacksmith & leathersmith Titans, a job which they somewhat inherited (and then improved using Construction magic). They will be Note that again, I used "construction" in a very loose sense that doesn't necessarily means building houses but can also means constructing garments, gadgets, Turing machines or anything constructible. garments and small gadgets as a mean to survive / pay tuition fees in the Boiling Isles. As a matter of fact, their clothes is mostly DIY, just like the Cobbler's clothes.
  • the Cobbler in the film practices a menial job and was looked down on for the most part, just like a worker ant, but for some weird reasons he ended up dismantling a whole army of magical fiends just by ruining one element and then let the domino effect takes its course. The Cobbler was true to himself, he was fine with being a pawn on the chessboard, but he was an extraordinary pawn regardless. And so was Mes.

Ideology: They're progressive compared to most Trappers and are skeptical to religions or similar cult-like associations. They occasionally make fun of worshipped idols (The Collector & Belos) both in Titan Trappers Island and the Boiling Isles. Religions as known by them is only comodifying and unforgiving. This will also leads to them wanting to join Raine's rebellion in the future.

Mes falls under the radar for the most part (which works in their favor), but they are a brilliant student to-be.

Pre-21 ArtBook dump

Stuff I drew pre-2021 on a subpar app called "ArtBook 1" or sth on Android


Everything Everywhere All At Once music videos


⚠️These videos contain spoiler for Everything Everywhere All At Once (2022). Watch at your own risk

I was so stoked to hear that Son Lux was going to write a movie score in 2021 that after the movie came out I made some edits of this movie with EVEN MORE Son Lux music.

At first I intended to make these with only songs from their debut album, "At War With Walls and Mazes" - so that I can call this "Every Walls, Every Mazes, All At War". I actually had MV ideas for songs outside the album too, but so far I've only made two videos with "Betray", "Prologue", and the beginning of "Break". And then life took over </3

I haven't uploaded these on Youtube or any other platforms, though that might be the only way to make people watch this thing. But I don't want to have a presence on Youtube (it's an eternally frustrating platform and so engrossed in ads that I don't even use its frontend anymore. Invidious is my main frontend for the 'Tube) and all my stuff are CC0-ed, so to anyone who watches this, feel free to repost on any platform. I'd be very nice if you leave a link to this post, but if you don't I won't come and burn down your house.

Spoiler Rules

Although the spoiler rule for TV shows & series on mAiNsTrEaM SoCiAl mEdIa lasts 24 hours after the thing was aired (US hour ofc, because the world is the US), this won't be the case for us. Social media are hectic places, and e0x0e0 is not social media, which is why we have our own rules:

  • One year from original airing / release date – this is how long the content revealing plot points, conclusions, etc... will remain a spoiler. (I came up with this number mainly because I don't watch media right after its release date and it usually takes me a year, or even years to know about its existence. So having the spoilers marked is a way to play nice with slow ppl like me. ~369)
    • So for example, as of now (30 Oct 2022) I will mark anything related to the Moon Knight series as a spoiler. For The Owl House, I will mark things from ep 11 - 21 of season 2 and the entire season 3 as spoiler.
  • Plot twists and events following plot twists will always be considered spoiler, even if the episode containing the plot twist was aired long ago.
    • this, again, is to play nice with people who haven't watched the show. I based this on the ethos of the TV Tropes Wiki. ~147
  • Common knowledge will never be considered spoiler, even if the episode was aired less than a year ago.
    • For example, things like "Steven Grant has DID" or "Raine Whispers is non-binary and goes by they/them" will never has a spoiler mark, even though Moon Knight and the TOH episode introducing Raine is released in 2022, because these are common knowledge that was stated in the description of the film or right at the moment we meet the character, that isn't a result of plot development, and therefore doesn't spoil the plot.



I'm ~user369, main curator of this space. I went by various pseudonyms like QBM, u3s6e9r and tệ on other social networks, which is why you may see my old art signed under those names. As of now, I mainly go by ~369/~user369 and tệ. My dream is to become a full-time hobbyist. I like neurodivergent people and I hate rules. Nice seeing you around this extremely unpopular corner of the interweb.

Most of the content here (art, ramblings, video edits, subtitles etc) is created by me. The website and all the code that makes it work was created by ~user147, you can see their thought process (i.e the making of this page) in the Developer's Notebook.

Got questions? Found a bug? Drew fanart? Have things to say abt anatomically correct dinosaurs? send them all to the Guestbook. I check it often enough and you can't find me personally by any other way. I speak vietnamese (native), english, french, and some finnish, feel free to write sth non-english and rid me off this anglo-centric internet.


This page is best viewed with Chromium or Firefox. There's no issues with other browsers, it's just that the colors look a bit better. Dark Mode bug on Safari was fixed. As of today (2 Nov 2022), this page was tested with Chrome/Firefox/Safari/Edge on Mac and all is well.

Unlike other pages on e0x0e0, this one kind of supports mobile view & touchscreen. Though, there are things that enable only on mouse hover, so I'd recommend browsing in a computer for the best experience.



Welcome to the Meta guide. Here we will introduce you to different elements of the page and how to use them.

Articles and masterposts

Every entry on this page is called an "article". All articles are listed in the navigation box above.

"Masterposts" are special articles that contains a list of links to other articles, kind of like a directory. Each of those sub-articles will have a tag pill linking back to the masterpost.

Tag pills

Tag pills are often seen at the end of each article, but can also appear in the middle of a sentence. There are 2 types of tag pills, the kind that links to a masterpost (clickable), and the "normal" ones (not clickable).

You can distinguish the 2 types of pills by appearance: linked pills often look colorful while normal pills are monotonous. When switched between Dark themes and Color themes, linked pills will retain their color while normal pills will change color according to the current theme. If listed on the same line, linked pills and normal pills will be separated by a "|" character.


  • (linked pills) | (normal pills)


There are 2 types of links: internal and external links. Internal links are anchors within this page and will be opened in the same tab/window. External links will be opened in a new tab/window. External links are marked by a "↗" symbol.

Masterpost links in the navigation box are actually drop-downs that can be opened/closed by clicking on the little arrow before the link


Switches can be seen at the top bar and the Filters section of navigation box, it can also be seen in some articles. Click on a switch to toggle it ON / OFF.

  • Sample switch 1:
  • Sample switch 2: / /
  • Dark mode switch:


Notations are highlighted texts that opens a modal, have a beetle smooch . They're actually just fancy switches. Notations can be opened and closed by clicking the same highlighted text.


Spoiler's visibility can be toggled using the Spoiler switch in the top bar. See the rules of what is considered spoilers here

  • Text: Spoilered texts will look like this (sample spoilered text). To see the spoiler, you can hover your mouse over the text and wait, or use the Spoiler switch.
  • Image: Spoilered images will look like this. To see the spoiler, you can Right-click the image > Open in new tab/window, or use the Spoiler switch.
  • Videos: Videos don't start unless you click on them, so I don't feel the need to obscure them. I'd always put a spoiler tag pill before it though.
