During the time before the Mandalorian Wars, when Meetra was teaching a young Mical, she would often show her affection/encouragement by petting his head. This eventually became a habit which she uses to relax and comfort him.
Years later, they meet again. Meetra is unsure if this man is the same youngling she had taught all those years ago, and so, going through the same motions again, all doubt was erased when she saw the look on his face.
She still does this from time to time, forgetting that he’s a man already who is taller than her :^^)
A friend told me about this!! Oh my goodness, it's been so long since I've seen fan art of Mical and the Exile! I'm afraid it's not a very favoured pairing...
That being said, this is absolutely stunning! I especially love the effect in the lower panel, especially! Their expressions are very well done, as well!
And thank you so much!! <3 I'll try to continue it when I get the chance ( r i p s c h o o l ) got lots of headcanons I want to share so hopefully I'll get to draw some more Disciple!
The lack of Mical/Exile stuff made me almost lose my passion for the pairing, at one point. I've gotten into a wee bit of fan art but the fanfiction part of me is long gone for that pairing. It sometimes can be a little sad to see a lack of support for certain characters and OTP's.
