I wrote this piece to one of Mama’s artworks a while ago and I don’t remember if I posted it or not.
Well, here it is. I called it “Scarred”.
Even though Sonozaki Fumine, now calling herself Shroud, knew she was falling in love with the dectective, Narumi Soukichi, she still could not bear to show him her face beneath the bandages. She never wanted him to gaze upon her ruined face and see just what Ryubee had done to her. So, still, even though their love was growing, she kept her face covered.
Finally, he could stand it no longer. “Fumine…I thought we promised each other no more secrets.”
“Soukichi, I can’t.” She whispered, turning her back to him. “I cannot show you the work of a monster.”
“You have to trust me.” He murmured. “You must trust me if we are to set things right and stop Ryubee and save your son.”
“You won’t love me if you see my scars.” Fumine murmured. “You’ll recoil and think me hideous.”
“You could be missing a nose and I would still love you. Your beauty shines from within.”
His words touched a part of her heart that she had long thought cold and dead. It sent warmth through her and finally, she turned to face him and removed the glasses and hat. “If you really mean that, then…”
“With everything I have.” He whispered, coming closer. Their lips met in the softest, most tender of kisses. “Fumine, I love you.”
Before she could repy, her face stung. Was she…was she crying? And then, she felt his hands go to work. He was undoing the bandages and she could not bring herself to stop him. Her face continued to sting as she began to weep openly.
Slowly, the scars from the burns were revealed. There was evidence of where surgeons had tried to do skin grafts, but her face was very raw. It was red, almost angry and it was some kind of minor miracle that she could still see.
“Don’t look…” She whispered, trying at the last minute to turn away, but it was too late. He’d already seen her.
“Oh my goodness…” He whispered.
“You see?” She opened her eyes to look at him and in his eyes, she saw pain, sympathy and… pity. “This is what Rhyubee did to me.”
“Oh, Fumine…” He then tenderly kissed her tears away before placing a gentle kiss on her forehead. “Don’t worry… we’ll make this right.”
And that’s how Miu learned she had a thing for megane.
Trinity suggested this to me and I was like “Wow that’s silly and cute” and then I went back and watched the scene to see what JK’s hair looked like and shiiiiit I was so distracted by how cute he and Gen looked that I totally missed how much this scene was ship fodder for me.
…there may be fic for this.
And now, there is!
As Miu tried to tear her shocked eyes away from Gentarou looking ‘normal’, she then noticed, out of the corner of her eye, a figure huddled in a blanket in the corner. A quick headcount left little doubt as to who it could possibly be.
“JK?” She ventured.
Silence, but the figure got very tense.
Taurus must have gotten to him… She bought. ”That IS you, isn’t it JK?” She got closer and reached out her hand to try to take a look at him. He tensed, but let her touch the blanket he was holding. ”Come on, let me see. I’m sure you don’t look as horrible as you think.”
The blanket turned to face her and slowly, JK revealed himself. He was wearing the proper Ama High uniform, without his modifications, and his hair was inky black. He was also wearing….glasses. She didn’t know he needed glasses. This was news to her. He lifted his head to face her and she felt a pink flush crawl over her cheeks.
“…I still look cool, don’t I, Miu?” He asked in a small voice, scared that she wouldn’t like him this way.
She stared at him for a long moment, face growing pinker. She felt a trickle of blood make its way out of her nose.
“Oh..oh…oh my god, you’re ADORABLE!” She blurted out, almost squealing.
“Not you, too!
I will never not draw Gentaro looking freaked out that someone is kissing him.
Every time Gentaro gets a kiss it’s gonna look exactly fucking like this.
Miu was about to have a cigarette when she heard a great commotion up on the roof and she turned around.
The new transfer student had arrived and his appearance was enough to get the other delinquents in Miu’s “gang” (and she used the term loosely) excited. He was quite tall, wearing a very interesting, and loose, uniform. His hair was slicked back in a fashionable pompadour, which highlighted his high cheekbones. The crowd split to let the tall newcomer pass, excitedly whispering.
"A Yankee?" Miu was srprised. "Nice hair. So, who are you?"
"Kisaragi Gentarou. I’m new."
"I know." Miu pulled out her cigarette, dropped it, crushed it and then kissed Gentarou. "I’m Miu. I rule this rock. Remember that."
When she pushed him away, he was redder than her skirt. ”I..I’ll try.”
I will go down with my ships, goddammit.
"Here." Shun draped his varsity jacket over Tomoko’s tiny frame and made sure it was snug. "I want you to have this."
"Your varsity jacket?" She was confused. "But why?"
"It’s going to be cold and I won’t always be around to keep you warm. Since it’ll be chilly this spring, I want you to hang on to this so you’ll be nice and cozy."
She smiled softly and pulled the jacket tightly around her. ”…okay. I will.”
She smiled, and tried not to cry. ”I promise.”
Hayami adopts Adi, Ester, and Sebastian while their mommy is away.
I’m not gonna lie, I miss Sonoda already. Maybe because I have a weakness for scorpion women, but I also just thought she was really interesting and I would have liked to know more about her motives and backstory.
Hopefully Hayami will find some way to bring her back
possibly by beating the shit out of Virgoand will then force the kids to hide her on the moon so the Chairman doesn’t find/kill her.
If the Chairman had really wanted to do Sonada a favor, he’d have killed her outright. It broke Hayami’s heart to see her be banished by Virgo into some black, unknown universe. But, the Chairman’s word was final and Sonada had failed too many times. So, Hayami, despite his protests, stood aside. But now, there was another problem.
Sonada had three pet scorpions and now they were orphans.
Hayami let himself into what had once been Sonada’s apartment and took the terrarium out and moved it into his own apartment. Having been around the three before, he was familiar to them. When he put his hand in, he let them crawl all over them. Almost as if it was a question, one of them snapped its pinchers. It was like “Where’s Mommy?”
"Don’t worry…" Hayami murmured. "No matter what it takes, I will bring Mommy home soon."
"You know, I could get used to this…" Miu was half draped over JK, admiring how good he looked in a normal uniform. "You may not be what you think of when you say cool, but I think you’re still cute."
"I feel weird." He muttered, trying not to blush. "I don’t feel like me."
"You’re still the same JK I love." She fiddled with his tie a little. "And that’s good enough for me."
Trinity showed me a little bit of a thing she was writing last night and I wanted to draw this little bit because shit it was really cute. Ryusei helps Tomoko take off her makeup and is all “holy shit she’s really cute”.
I don’t actually know how taking off makeup works. Fight me.
And now, there’s a fic accompanying this:
Past midnight and there was no school tomorrow. Perfect time for Tomoko to stay up read a book. She curled up on her windowsill with a copy of an old magic book she’d found and began to read through it. As she thumbed through the book, she thought she heard a tapping at her window. Ignoring it, she returned to her book, only for the tapping to grow louder. After about ten minutes of tapping and pausing, Tomoko put her book down and got up.
She managed to open up her black curtains and window, only for the tree outside her window to shake and a very familiar face drop out of the branches.
"Ryuusei-san!" She gasped as he managed to right himself on a tree limb. "What…what….what are you doing?" A pause. "Why are you in a tree?"
"…I just wanted to admire you." He was fully aware of how damn creepy that sounded. He hadn’t forgotten the pain in her eyes when he revealed himself as Meteor and then nearly killed Gentarou. "I didn’t want to get close to you again after…the Aries incident."
She reached out and touched his face. Her hands were slightly cold, but there was a warmth there that warmed Ryuusei’s heart. “You’re lucky we are all so forgiving and didn’t demand a sacrifice.”
He had no doubt she would have used his body in some weird sacrifice.
"Come in before you hurt yourself." She moved away from the window and allowed him in.
"It’s late and you’re still wearing your eye makeup."
"I don’t ever want anyone to see my bare face." She admitted. "I feel naked without it on."
Ryuusei looked at her vanity and then picked up some makeup remover cloths she liked to use. Gently, he wiped her face clean. Surprisingly, he didn’t shrink away once her face was revealed. “Wow…”
"What?" She turned away and hid her face in her hands. "Don’t look at my bare face!"
"…but it’s beautiful." He murmured, lowering her hands from her face. "You’re just as beautiful with it off as it on."
Tomoko stared at him blankly for a minute and a half.
Realizing that now would be a good time to keep her from talking more and spoiling the moment, Ryuusei leaned in and kissed Tomoko gently.
Once he pulled away, she actually gave him a genuine, non-creepy smile.
"…I guess the sacrifice can be postponed."
"…oh, okay. Wait, WHAT?!"
Phoenix is supposed to be very ornamental and regal, given that it’s a fire type and doesn’t do much hand-to-hand. Hydra on the other hand is more simplified and is more of a powerhouse fighter.
Wowwwwwww you can see my roots as a Rayearth fan showing in Hydra he is just oozing Selece god.
Do they have Switchers or are you just using their Zodiart forms?
;D Ohhhh they have switchers all right.
Back at the beginning of the month, Mama and I were kicking what I’ve called “The Judas Moment” around and these were the two starring Zodiarts. I was actually waiting for her to draw their respective Switchers, but since she’s busy, I figured I’d at least reveal who the Phoenix Zodiarts is:
“Utahoshi Kengo-san, right?” Nobori Maya had approached him on a rare moment when he was alone. ”You’re involved with that Kamen Rider Club. right?”
Kengo had been alarmed. ”Who told you?!”
Smiling, Maya pulled a switch out from her pocket and Kengo saw immediately that it was a different switch… and bore the insignia of Virgo. She pressed it and with a flash, she had become the Virgo Zodiarts: a commander! Kengo was about to call for help when Virgo stopped him.
“Wait…Kengo-san.” She said, her voice a sensual purr. “I have a proposition for you.” There was a switch in her free hand. ”I know your body is weak and your health frail. I know how frustrating that is for you.”
“What do you know?” Kengo asked, shrinking back from the Switch in her hand.
“I can give you a better body. Isn’t that what you want?” Maya/Virgo asked. ”With this, you will become stronger than you are now… and you won’t be playing second fiddle to that fool, Gentarou.”
Kengo was pale as he stared blankly at the switch on her hand.
“Take this switch and be reborn!”
He looked at the switch and then at Virgo’s face and slowly, unable to stop himself, he reached out his hand.
With a single press of the switch, Kengo was reborn. Rising from the ashes of his frail body came the Phoenix Zodiarts. At first, he tried not to use the switch too much and managed to keep it a total secret from everyone else. He didn’t want them to know. He didn’t want Yuki to ever find out. But eventually, he gave in. He loved the way the switch made him feel. He wasn’t weak or pathetic anymore. He was stronger, powerful… alive.
Floating for eternity in the infinite void of space gives a lady plenty of time to reflect on where her life went wrong.
Two things came across Sonada Sarina’s mind as she floated in the dark void of space. One was that she hated all Kamen Riders. Two was that she was separated from her babies. She found herself far more concerned about the second thing than the first.
"My poor babies…they’re scared and all alone without me to take care of them." She murmured, trying not to cry and scream in rage at the same time. "Who’s taking care of them while I’m away?" She paused and kicked and screamed at the abyss. "Fucking Gentarou! Fucking Meteor! I hate space! I hate it out here!"
Knowing and not caring that no one could hear her out there in the darkness, she did begin to cry. ”I just want to go home.”
Ryusei learns everyone’s role in the Kamen Rider Club.
I’ve been drawing this at work for the past two days (half yesterday and half today) and spent today quietly oblivious to the fires burning in the internet AND I HAVE WORKED TOO HARD ON THIS TO LET THE DEPRESSING EVERYTHING OF TONIGHT BRING ME DOWN.
So enjoy this damn Fourze comic thing I did and let yourself not be horribly depressed by how much the world sucks for a minute or so.
EDIT: Now with click through to a larger version just in case you can’t read the text!
NOW! with a minific!
(An addendum to Kengo: “I also have a MASSIVE stick up my ass!”)
What a bunch of weirdos.
Ryuusei was *this close* to running out of the Rabbit Hutch and never looking back. If it wasn’t for the crush he was currently nursing on Gentarou, the biggest idiot of them all, he would have run off, never to be seen again. But Gentarou’s charm had won him over, so he was here to stay. For now. But at the moment, he had to deal with a variety of lunatics, including a guy with a stick up his ass the size of Tokyo Tower, the crazy informant, the “president” and resident alpha female, the weird psychic and her football player paramour and… Yuki, who, as far as he was concerned, was on a whole other level of crazy.
The things I do for love.
