©Why, why aren't there more images of these two as good friends or even loving brothers instead of at each other's faces all the time?
Okay, little history.
Malygos, as you all know was the Aspect of Magic.
And Neltharion, as you all know, is the Aspect of Earth.
I use "is" instead of "was" because I now ignore the stupid ending for the Cataclysm and we didn't kill Deathwing, we cured him. Because that's better than chopping our own noses off despite our faces.
If some of you want to go by the canon version, fine. Do that. I'm happier in my fantasy.
Neltharion and Malygos were very good friends, like besties. Actually in my headcanon, they are in fact loving brothers. Why? Well, Malygos controls energy, and Neltharion controls matter, and well, physics can't just work without either of them working together, and that's why.
That and yeah, they were very close. I do mean very close.
Like Velen and Kil'Jaeden close.
It's no wonder why Malygos took Neltharion's fall from grace personally.
But in the headcanon, since Neltharion was finally cured, he is even more lost than ever because he now has to deal with Kalecgos taking his brother's spot. And Nel isn't happy.
Well, that's okay. Because Malygos is now a ghost, and that kind a solves it. But now Neltharion has to walk around with a constant reminder of why he sucks, as in, Malygos is still dead even if he's around Neltharion and is able to communicate with him.
Yeah, the ghost thing, it doesn't give the closure that the usual cliche should.
And I wanted to do a circle image again. Haven't done one of those in a while.
And Nel is smiling. This is rare. He's usually being all pouty because, well, Nel has major emotional and mental problems. It's what happens when you've been trapped inside your own body while an evil little demon controls it, while at the same time being tormented by that demon's bosses for ten thousand years.
It kinda screws a guy up.
Also, Nel almost 70 thousand years old and has lost about 50-60 thousand of those years in memory.
He only remembers the last 12 thousand or so years. Kinda sucks for him.

And he's gonna keep that beard, y'hear?
