Sally The Water Goddess by dragon-nexus Sally The Water Goddess by dragon-nexus
I will forever be in debt to Becky for drawing Sally in this dress. I consider this "My Sally" when she looks like this. She's my beutiful goddess ;o;
I'm such a Sally freak ¬.¬
:iconcelestethehedgehog: sketched this awesome picture for me...cos I nag a lot.
I re-drew the hand. Not because she did it wrong, but because I didn't feel it looked quite right...shame my skill at drawing hands is...well...lacking. Like my skill at drawing anything, tbh o.o

I'm so pleased with the background, and her eyes especially. I toyed with the idea of frosting her eyes out, or making them simply white with a glow, but her eyes looks so deep like this I had to leave them.

Anyway, enough jibber jabber...TIME TO GET SOME NUTS. *noms on Snickers bar*

[EDIT: NAME CHANGED! The final element wouldn't work as water, and this looks more watery anyway =)]

This is "my Sally" as it were. It's the costume Nexus made for her when she lived with him =3
(and yeah, I'm aware how Mary Sue that statement is).

Thanks very much for the compliment. This ranks as one of my fave piccies =3

The colouring on this is so cool and the dress is awesome. Did you design that dress? Either way, it's amazing all the same ;D
She looks great like this. She suits the more gothic style. Not so good-girl anymore :D

What drew me in on this pic perticularly was strangely enough her lips O_O

I have a very difficult time coloring a lipstick appearance on her without making her look over done. Perhaps its the combination of her more sultry satire and the dark eye make up that makes it look so stunnign all in combination, but I applaud you for it, because its very difficult for me personally.

In your universe 'your Sally' must have some darker undertones to her having not been in the freedom fighters right away and hanging around Nex. I think it adds and air intrugue to her, another level worth exploring!

All in all, you did a fantastic job! I'm glad it turned out like you were hoping, thats always rewarding!!! ^_^

Well, the basic story is that Nexus captured her because of his long standing desire for her.
There's a couple of branches to the story, one is adult rated, detailing that he enslaved her for a few months before realising he actually had fallen in love with her, and she for him.
The other branch would be non-adult. After completing the mission (Nexus' Story part 3) she saw something possitive about the rogue-ish was he fought the war by himself and decided to spend some time with him. Again, they fell in love after a time.

In both cases, the dress was made for her, here the two paths converge. Nexus honed her fighting skills and taught her marksmanship. She became his combat buddy. However, after spending some months with him, she decides to leave him to return to the freedom fighters, handing back the dress and returning to her old life, but always cherishing what they had. She left not out of spite, but because she realised he only ever truely loved her as an ideal. The image that was Sally. And that there was only one person who he really, truely loved. Becky.

Major league waffle going on here, but that's how my mind works XD
I like adding a deep back story. You probably noiced.

A deep back story makes interesting charecters more lively and interesting. Several people have made Sally 'thier own' by entwining her with thier backstory, which I truely like on occassion!

Though I have my more adult side, I tend to avoid the pornographic stuff. After all these were charecters from my childhood, and its weird and uncomfortable seeing them depicted in certain ways. But I shall not judge ;)

I love how you entwined Bex into the mix of it all, and Sally being wise as she is, leaves nobley knowing that his heart is not her own. Very in charecter thing for her to do! I love it

Oh I understand entirely what you mean. Not everything is going to be everyone's cup of tea. It's a bit of an extreme story, really, I consider the Nexus in the adult stories to be a sort of alter Nexus. Same design and everything, but a little less thoughtful of other people, and far more in tune with his labido.
Family friendly Nexus is a general rough-and-tumble cynic, rolling his eyes at the cliches life keeps doling out at him.

you know, I totally love that even though you have that side to your charecter you choose where and when its appropriate to share! So many people have no inhibitions of it! You have earned a great deal of my respect by that! Thanks so much!

Honestly, I've had an all around aweful day and it was topped off with DA drama all about some guy saying things about his pervy ways that really REALLY startled me...

I don't mind that people like porn and that they view it... but.. I guess its when they advertise it and have somethign sexual to say about everything... I don't know, that irks me.

Thank you for having a mature spin on things, its really refreshing!

I know what you mean. "Yeah, we get it, you're in touch with your sexuality. That doesn't mean we ALL have to be in touch with your sexuality, bud!"

Canonically (if such a thing exists for fan characters) the adult stories are an aside. A way of using Nexus for situations of my choosing. In the real story, he's not a serial rapist or whatever. He loves women in a James-Bondy kinda way, but without the frantic boinkage. He's fairly convinced he's what every woman wants. Smart, skillful and challenging.

So naturally it comes as a huge blow to him when Becky dumps him and leaves to do her own thing.

EXACTLY! Being in touch with your sexual nature is great...but... we don't all want to be in touch with it! I seriously could not have put that better!

Nexus sounds like such a gun toting casanova XD I cna't help but love charecters liek that! Bex Dumps him and does her own thing? Okay, now THAT is hilarious! I'd love to see his face when that happens XD poor guy

Becky figures there was no point being with him if he couldn't decide whether he loved Sally or her more, the "relationship" wasn't going anywhere, so she made the first move and left. Totally unexpected for Nexus. It was after that he realised he loved Becky more, the feeling Sally picked up on.

Becky left to prove she wasn't the clumsy silly girl Nexus thought she was and hone the skills she already has so she could one day beat him in a sparring session. She ends up training under Nexus' sister Nefina, who hates her brother for the fact he was gifted with wings while she wasn't.

Nexus goes into a slump at realising he's not the awesome guy he thought he was and pines after his lost love. He realises how much he took her for granted.

It wasn't until 10 years afterwards that Nexus and Becky met up again. And had the epic fight.
Becky made an animation of it, but I can't remember where she put it. Think it was on her sketch account but I lost the address XD

Yeah, shes wearing lipstick, though I didn't make it too clear. Kinda blends in with the collar.

And thanks, I'm very pleased with the eyes. They ended up looking so deep.

Seems that way. It still looks pretty good, the way you applied the lipstick, minus collar interference.

You are most welcome, Nex! They truly are deep.
