31. Flowers - Sorairo Magatama by Meari-chan 31. Flowers - Sorairo Magatama by Meari-chan
"Becoming an adult, or staying an innocent child:
Which one is worse?
Let's stop asking those questions,
If you bloom."

Ayumi Hamasaki - "Hana"

I really like this coupling, Chihaya's so oblivious to the world and Saya has to babysit him most of the time. I swear, Chihaya's too cute to be a boy DX

Check out "Dragon Sword and Wind Child" NOW!
Tis a great book! ^^

Technical Notes:
1. I'm going to pass on any other detailed works for now; I started this in late December and didn't finish it till a few days ago. (Damn you, Gypsy roses! DX )
2. Those goldfish on Saya's kimono are too darn cute...

No, I'm talking about the effort you're willing to put in.

Agreed. This is one of those projects that I was worried that I would bail on because I got bored with it.

I didn't have the patience to do it all in one sitting because of the flowers *inked one or two flowers every few days* that, and i've been super busy DX

yeah, it would take a lot of time inking them ;_____;

so since you're at college what are you planning on being? Or majoring, whichever.

This first book is translated

But, I don't think they'll translate the other two books unless it gets a bigger fanbase D=

Wow, the detail in everything is incredible! I especially love the flowers and Saya's kimono. ~:heart: It is an adorable pairing that just gets better every time I read that book. -^^-

Agreed! Agreed! I just recently read the books, and I fell for these two. I think Saya's motherly attitude and Chihaya's innocence go very well together. =3

Best last line in a book EVER. XD

They're so cute. :heart:

It was a pretty great last line, but I'd have to say that the award for best last lines goes to Harpist in the Wind, (c) Patricia McKillip. That's just my personal opinion. =D

YES. :faint:~:heart:

But read "The Riddle-Master of Hed" first. It's part of a trilogy. =D

Ah! I'm glad! ^^
I was nervous about the goldfish because I hadn't penciled them in before colouring them. DX
