The Kiss of Death by jameson9101322 The Kiss of Death by jameson9101322
I took that pic from my Digital Devil Saga meme and fleshed it out into a full-grown painting. For those of you who haven't played the game, I'm not telling you if this is real or symbolic because obvious spoilers. That said, these two have history and that's fact... and they're bloodlusting cannibals, which is also fact.


Anyway for those of you who don't care about spoilers, I was trying to think of the most romantic thing I could for Valentine's day and ashamed to say that this is it. Actually the most romantic thing is that I just saw Tangled the other day and that was such a great mushy romance movie, it got me all wibbly. But I drew this instead because... you know... dying together is also really romantic. I'd give my life for you, and the only way I'll let you die is by my own hand. Considering the property we're dealing with here, it's about as sappy as it gets.

I worked all day on actual work and finally in the evening I had an hour to myself to do something I wanted. I wanted to draw Digital Devil Saga, and my favorite pairing therein; Gale and Angel. Theirs is a very complicated romance - mostly because it existed in a previous life. Angel is not the woman she was, and Gale is not the man she loved, yet that glimmer is still there, the vague shadow of what died so many years ago is dying again now.

I loved this game, you know that. I have bugged you previously.

And you decided to flesh out the only part that made me shed a tear while playing.

I...there are no words, you made me a tragic sort of happy seeing this. Thank you.

It's just so tragic... for me the whole game built up to this scene... I mean, it was tragic seeing the others die, but with Gale and Angel there was such a sense of resolution about it, like they'd both be quietly working toward this moment and now they were finally at peace.

On top of all that, it makes the ending rather bittersweet. If I recall Gale and Angel's reincarnations were pretty much inseparable in the few scenes they were in. Even if they don't remember, I found it cute.

But auuugh what a painful scene.

No I agree... I love their story because theirs is that kind of "one true love story". No matter what incarnation they're in, they find each other.

I don't do much blood? Maybe you should peek into my Silent Hill section ^^ I love blood, although I admit percentage wise I guess I don't do it often

Ms Jame, you have a way to always surprise me with something.

I cried at this scene, because I didn't realize until that point how much I liked Gale. That said, I bawled my eyes out at the scene after ;-;
