im a fanfiction-junkie... sort-of... and on fanfiction.net i've found some stories written by an author pennamed 'Vathara', that i found amazingly good, and had to draw some thing in consequence... in Rurouni Kenshin fandom whoa... good ones!
i just loved the idea of sword-spirits:
It's title is Blades of Blood [link]
ink-pen and color pencil (grrr! lines!)
characters not mine.

Thank you! :)
'Blades of Blood' will always be special to me - this was the first Vathara-fanfiction I read... and read, and read again :D
I'd really like to make more fanart, but nowadays work - the so called RealLife - is more demanding, but there's still hope :)

i don't remember which i read first of hers but i love them all... there are quite of few stories i read over when there are no new ones published from many writers in the 'rk' fandom depending on my mood at the time. i was so glad she published the sequel to 'blades of blood' but still wish there was more to all them (that's always the way with great stories =) ).

i understand what you mean about not having time in everyday life to even do the essentials let alone stuff we like to do... don't give up, you're good at what you do!  :dance:

WHOA. This is just too cool. I am a fan of Vathara, too, and Blades of Blood is one of my favorites- it's wonderful to see such great fanart!

GACK!

I love this. 'Sai on the blade and early-fic Kenshin behind? Fffff~ It's too pretty not to love.

It's so nice to see that there are people other than me who are helplessly in love with Blades of Blood. Or at least who liked it a lot.

Thank you! :)
Yes, Sai on the blade, and early-fic Kenshin:D It's nice to know there are other Blades of Blood enthusiasts out there :)

Yeeeeaaah.... It's more like I obsessively stalk Vathara, but I started out with Blades of Blood. -totally doesn't have Vathara's bio come up first when she starts typing in URLs. NOPE NOT AT ALL-

oh my gosh! this would be such a great cover for the fic!!!!
Mallorn85's avatar
Thanks. You think so? I don't know... there are too many imprecisions i haven't noted on it - than again i'm a nit-picking b*stard towards myself when it comes to my own art... though it hadn't stopped me from uploading the pics, so really - who knows?

I know what you mean, I think we're all our own worst enemy when it comes to art.

Blades of Blood fanart, yay! I like the combination of Kenshin and Battousai here!
Mallorn85's avatar
Thanks. I'm glad you like it! :D
It was the first fic for me from the 'Vathara-Realm', and it had the consequences of going back ever since, and the 'must draw something from it' tick in the back of my head :)

I've read the story, and I love your art of it! I tried to do one, but failed slightly.
