This is a part of an Art Trade with *Sjazna
, where we have eight themes to draw pictures to.
This is Save for Last.
. . . I'm never going to get you to shut up about the cute couples thing now, am I?
The girl is my Cariel and the boy is *Sjazna
's Memo. Yes, they are pretty young - like fifteen, sixteen or something - and they are absolutely adorable.
Memo is a Prince you see, and not very interested in all the cute, doll-like Princesses around him, but when Cariel comes along - a straight forward, somewhat demanding (on one's patience) but yet sweet, peasant girl - it was seen that even Memo can smile. He normally doesn't, no, since he's a bit of a loner. Or... completely a loner.
Slowly, a friendship grew between them as Cariel dragged him around for him to show her the castle - she was only visiting actually, due to various circumstances - and as they
grew, something else started blossoming...
So this is a cute scene that hasn't taken place - I'm just taking liberties here - but I can imagine it might.
They are sitting in the garden of the castle, yes, and the first snowfall, that sometimes can come so suddenly that it's still green outside, has barely settled. There is where Memo gives her a small, and not very expensive, but yet incredibly valuable, gift: The last rose of the season that he saved just for her.
Sappy, I know, but also so sweet that I'll soon get cavities.
When it comes to innocence and the purity of first love... well... it's hard to not get caught up in it.
So that the 'save for last' that connects it to the theme. Probably not what was intended - and I had planned to do this Art Trade last just to strenghten my point
- but it's cute. So be quiet.
I am once again doing something else than a purely green background, which is a relief, and yes, Cariel can have those clothes even if she's a peasant. She's visiting, remember? So they gave her pretty clothes. And she loves it, being the girly girl she is.
I find it pretty cute that she's chubbier than Memo is too. Although that's not really a good word for it either, since she looks healthy if anything, but ah well...
It was fun to colour this since I did so while roleplaying - on the side that is - an angel that has a stick so far up his ass that he can taste the wood at the back of his tongue.
Aaaaand about that Prince and peasant thing that technically doesn't work?
We can have a fairytale ending if we want to.
