Shizuru and Natsuki Evening by 4FaneBlackfireartist Shizuru and Natsuki Evening by 4FaneBlackfireartist
I wanted to take part in the Shizuru appreciation task on the Mai-Multiverse group. mai-multiverse.deviantart.com/…
but I just couldn't get what I wanted to draw to turn out the way I wanted it to be. 
and in the end I drew this. I could have fully coloured it in, but I fell in love with it like this :heart: 
a lovely soft moment. Ended up being a valentines thing in my mind instead.

The contest could have been Xmas themed originally as Shizuru's birthday is in December.
And I had always liked the story of the partners who wanted to get each other a meaningful gift, but could not afford it. So to get a beautiful comb for his partner's long hair, he sold his pocket watch. Meanwhile, she wanted to buy a silver chain to match his pocket watch, so cut off and sold her hair to afford it.
And somehow I felt that these two suited this story so sweetly.
but there's still the plus of Shizuru getting to use her pretty comb on Natsuki's silky hair. And natsuki has a pretty silver chain, that I imagine would get put round Duran's neck as a collar.

As it was a victorian era-ish story, it also matched my 'what if mai hime took place in victorian London'. So they're in nighties that feel more from that time.

This is very nice! Love how warm you've presented ShizNat here. Before I request to have it added to the group, will you enter this piece into the contest anyway?
