A Moment in the Sun by Koshindou A Moment in the Sun by Koshindou
The end of Winter Court: Kyuden Gotei - Daidoji Juri (my character from the game) returns to Crane lands alongside her new friends, Doji Asami and her brother Rinji (and her cat, Shoukyaku, snuck in there too). I'm sure that I've owed Rinji and Asami's creator Spooky ([link]) some fanart for a long time; he was a lot of fun to roleplay with throughout Winter Court. I don't keep a close eye on Legend of the Five Rings fiction nowadays, so I only recently learned that Asami got a spotlight...albeit a very bittersweet one: [link]

As far as samurai deaths go, though, it was a cool one.

...Of course, moments after this sketch the wind shifted, the bird seed blew into Juri's hair, and the seagulls chased her around the boat for the next twenty minutes until Shoukyaku rescued her. Rinji was then made to stand at the far end of the kobune for the rest of the trip. :)

Hey, no worries - I have five ranks in Lateness. :)

I'm glad that you like it - it was a lot of fun to draw. Those were good times.

I knew I was right to hire Shoukyaku in the Harriers he seems to know the future (unlike me) :p

But what happened to Asami???

Shoukyaku knows more than all of us, I'm sure. :)

As for Asami, you can follow the link for the story - basically she was unable to wrangle some corrupt merchants, so she committed jigai...but not before sending out a letter that brought Domotai crashing down for vengeance.

Very nice picture. :) I hope you'll color it someday too.
I didn't know of Asami's end.... I kinda stopped reading the fictions some time ago.

I definitely like to try coloring it. It's got me a little spooked at the moment, though - usually I try to color simpler pieces. :)

As for Asami's death, yeah, I'm the same way anymore. How dare they sneak relevant WC information into The Destroyer War II Part 9 The Revenging... ;)
