[100 Themes Challenge]
Well, I missed Spirit Day, but at least I got to post this within DeviantArt's extended "Spirit Week". Hurray for not being a total failure.
I spent a lot of time going over various means to create a positive piece for Spirit Day, but surprisingly, had a lot of trouble coming up with something. I considered trying to portray additional couples - one consisting of two guys, as well as a straight couple - to gather the whole spectrum. But besides running a little late on this (and I'd never have made it in time at all if I tried to do two MORE couples), but I didn't really want to have to introduce unfamiliar characters or pairings like this. I figured the Lavender Town
girls are probably some of my most recognizable characters anyway.
If you don't know them, sitting on the swing is Amanda Kertigan, an anti-social girl who basically hates everyone. Everyone, that is, except for Lavie Jennings, the sweet-as-pie girl behind her who has stolen her heart. Sure, they go to a private high school where no one is sure to understand them. But they don't care. As long as they're happy together, no one else's opinion really matters.
If you're interested in their story, please by all means check it out - [link]
There are currently nine chapters available (although I admit to slacking and haven't put out a new one in quite some time).
By the way, this isn't actually from any particular scene, but if you know the story, you probably know the place. ^_^
