dernier proximite -part 2- by bluestraggler dernier proximite -part 2- by bluestraggler
Continued from part 1. More angst ensues. Here lies UBERSYMBOLISM in the statues I placed in the top frames. There's Athena on the right... and I mean for that to stand for war (really, I should've chosen Ares instead but I already started drawing Athena so XD;; ), with its spear stained w/ (Franz's) blood. Venus/Aphrodite on the far right, for love whose bosom is stained and corrupted w/ blood and despair. And then Apollo, for the sun. Albert mentioned in the preview for episode 19 "I walk alone in the darkness, waiting for the sun." and I take the sun to be a metaphor for Franz, and of course I'm like, no Albert, THE SUN'S NOT COMING BACK *cry* so Apollo's broken and bleeding exactly the way Franz was in that episode. And the angel who's benevelontly clichedly bleeding/crying yada yes. *cough* Yes, enough of my poseur symbolic crap. Onto translations.

A: Soon... soon the doctor's gonna come so... it'll be okay... it's gonna be all right.
A: (uhm, yes, Franz is quite going/gone by this time so the talking's all Albert) Say, Franz... being like this... it's warm, isn't it?
A: Franz... F-... *choked sob* FRAAANZ----!!!!

Am happy w/ everything on this page 'cept for Albert's mouth in that final panel. Just can't get it to... scream right. *mutters* I like his eyes there but his mouth just mehs everything. >_> I also realize that this page is much much more crammed than the last. Bad organization, shows you how shoddy my doujin-ing skills are. >_>;; Ah well. Am quite done w/ this, not gonna touch it anymore, no. One more superangst F/A fanart from me and I'm THROUGH w/ angst. *nods decidedly*

Continued from PART 1.

Have you ever played Fire Emblem: Sacred Stones? It is a Game Boy Advanced game.

Albert here looks like Franz from FE: SS. And Franz here looks like Forde (Franz's brother from FE: SS)

The angles, the panels, shots...very impressive. Very sad too...

*sniff* I nearly cried when I watched that. And in the beginning of 19. And the end of 20..... I'm going to CRY at the end, I just know it. My friends and I think the series will have a not so happy ending.

Great comic
