As Yukio walks into the room, he comes to realize that the reason Kyousuke hasn't been answering is because he is fast asleep, sprawled almost shamelessly over the couch. He smiles briefly at the other boy's slumber and makes his way over to sit next to him, but he stumbles, blinded by a sudden, dizzy flash of bright white that sends him tumbling forward momentarily.

The sight of Kyou sleeping soundly on the sofa turns into something else; something unfamiliar and familiar at the same time - Kyou, sprawled just as he is only covered in luscious fabrics and cradled by the intricate sewing of sheets they could never afford. A memory he couldn't recall.

But the vision is as quick to leave as it was to come, and Yukio is only left staring and blinking as if Kyou was going to change again any moment. But only the soft breathing reached his ears, and the light rise and fall of Kyou's chest under an old, worn in sweatshirt.






There are two pictures here because Rae and I couldn't decide which we liked better XDD we're so indecisive...
Which do you guys like?

I love this, the little story just adds to the whole thing!>v< The colours in both are so gorgeous, I think the top one is my fav though. Makes me sad that Moukemono isn't really happening anymore though!;_;

Both colours are great in their own way!

If I had to pick between the two, I would definately pick the bottom. It's more pleasing to the eyes and the muted colors really bring the effect of the little snippet. I also like the bottom because the muted colors gives it a soft and morning-like effect to it :meow:

I like both.
They fit so perfectly to the story. When you tell about Yukio's flashback. I thought the upper one was that flashback memory thing.

Love em both. What program? >:

Bottom. Definitely. The saturated colors don't give the scene the intensity it deserves.

I think the bottom one is much better for the context. I think that it conveys better that the scene is an old memory. :3

I...can't decide either. They're both really cool. Hmm... Nope. I don't see a decision in sight. XD

I like the one on the bottom better.
The top is a bit too bold for sleep, to me.

I prefer the bottom one. I like the colors more. I think the softness reflects the subject matter better where as I find the top one's vibrant colors overbearing and irritating. But I respect everyone's opinions as well.

Gosh, I love the snippet. ^^
Personally I prefer the second version. The muted, faded colours are easier on the eye and are more suggestive of sleep. It also fits more carefully with the written piece.
Nice work.

I think the lower half has a more vision-like feel to it and my friend agrees that she likes it better too.
