Taking Your Love by mirupants Taking Your Love by mirupants
Someone asked for Niki/Nats on tumblr, and I like it enough so up it goes.

Is it bad to ship rival ships of the ships that I made canon myself in my own story? If it is, I don't want to be right.

Ah, I missed them!

I love how surprised Oniki looks. Nats must like having that effect on guys, since she seems to enjoy causing similar expressions on Leth in canon.

Never stop AUing your own canon! It'd be a shame to waste such awesome ideas like this. Of course, I'm probably biased, since I was cheering to Bel/Bel (though I -LOVE- Nats/Leth, too!), so it makes me very happy to see you're flexible with the rival ships. ^_^

As a side note, I agree with Flane-kanja that the development of the relationships in RtE really did seem organic and not forced. I did start out reading with a feeling that Niki and Nats would get together, but over time the characters evolved, and I really enjoyed how their growth had them going in unpredictable yet totally natural directions (romantically speaking). That was one of my favorite parts about RtE. You can tell, reading it, that the characters and story were allowed to grow into themselves, which is something I feel long, epic stories absolutely need in order to be believable and natural. You really did do a good job, in that aspect (and a lot of other aspects, too). ^_^

Thank you so much for your kind comment :heart: (and sorry it took me so long to answer)

Bel/Bel! Not going to lie, I like that, too. Man, I like a lot of pairings in my own canon come to think of. I guess in the next project I'll just not make ANY of them canon just so that I don't have to make up my mind ahaha~

And again, thank you soooo much for telling me your thoughts on the character/relationships developement. It's always very encouranging to hear that you didn't screw up completely 8D

I miss drawing my comic, too ;___; (please don't burn your eyes on the bad art of the beginning, though!)

Canon ships! No real Niki/Nats canon ships in your story!

I love the outfits by the way. It should be written that if one ever becomes leader of Hell it is compulsary one's wardrobe is pre 19th century.

haha that's why I called this a rival ship to the ones I made canon (niki/El and Nats/Leth).
Fun fact: Niki/Nats was supposed to be endgame when I started the comic. Nine year later, I lost complete control and everything turned out different~

Also thank you very much! Even if the clothes aren't really accurate, I still totally suscribe to your view of all things hellish wardrobe.

Yeh I know how that feels. My largest problem with my stories is that they've been around in my head for so long that nothing feels new so I jumble things up- definitely have some destined to be cannon pairs who have ended up being tragically split up because it already feels like theyve been together for eternity.

I thought Niki/El and Nats/Leth worked really nicely though in your story, and it felt very long term planned as both times they first met each other there was something special but not too obvious :p

haha yeeeah, do I ever know what you're talking about! And that's why I like doing these kind of 'what if' doodles, too /o/

And omg that is a really nice thing to say!!! It's super nice to hear that it wasn't TOO obvious or felt too forced. So thank you =)
