RoD GIVE - Nenene and Maggie by mandygirl78 RoD GIVE - Nenene and Maggie by mandygirl78
Before anything, I like to thank :iconsailorptah: for drawing this with me and for putting up with my nitpicking :D

Okay, for those who are not familiar with the Read or Die/Read or Dream anime and manga series, Maggie, the tall woman on the right, has created a "paper-snowman" for the kids to play with and is using her "paper-magic" to control it. The person next to her is Nenene, an author in the series.
-------------------------------------

This is one of two (and hopefully more) yuri fan art that promotes the message of giving, as in GIVE.

The purpose behind this is to inspire people to do more than just give presents for the holidays, but to give something even more everlasting, like give happiness to other, or give someone or give time to make someone else's life even better, no matter how small or trivial it seems.

In this planet, no matter how 'independent' we like to believe we are, we still have to depend on each other no matter what. And in the core of this, it's not about 'me' but it's about everyone else besides 'me' and how we can make a difference in their lives.

I can't draw, and I wanted to have something different from the usual Yuri fan art.

The reason why I choose to have a simple word like 'GIVE' is because I feel that it's more universal and it allows the art to do more of the 'speaking'. Actions does speak louder than words.

Also, the reason why I chose Read or Die (RoD) is because I'm a big fan of it and that there's next to nothing when it comes to Nenene/Maggie art and I do ship Maggie/Nenene fan fictions. Well here's our (me and sailorptah's) contribution to the Nenene/Maggie fan art, and hopefully it will inspire others to draw this great couple.

I do to. I'll take a quote from the late Fred Rogers.

"I like deep and simple over shallow and complex."

It's a very underrated anime series that should have been more popular.
