“You don’t get it!”
Yang shouted at her best friend, throwing her hands in the air frantically.
Blake rolled her eyes,
took her text book out of her locker and closed it. “You’re right, I don’t,”
the girl replied, turning on her heels to face Yang. “Why don’t you just tell
her you like her?”
“And ruin everything
we have so far?! Blake, I thought you were smart!”
Blake sighed. Her
friend seemed to be in distress, but Yang was only doing it to herself. Maybe
it was because she didn’t really understand romantic attraction, but people
always made a way bigger deal about it then it should be.
The faunus just
shrugged. “Or you could get something good out of it. Your call.”
Yang growled and threw
a glare her way. “What would I even say, huh? I should just go up to Weiss and
tell her how beautiful I think she is? How she makes my heart skip a beat?
Maybe I should tell her how her smile always brightens up my day and the reason
I’m so distracted during our cram sessions is because she’s just so stunning. Is that what you want me to

Yang went on and on about how Weiss had swept her off her feet. Her ears fell
flat as soon as she spotted a certain trademark color scheme right behind Yang.
“No, I’m not done yet!
You’re going to suffer now, too!” the blonde exclaimed, all the while making
gestures with her hands. “How about… Your lips look so soft and kissable? No,
that’s probably too forward for Weiss. I should go back to rambling about how
perfect she is to me.”
Yang looked over to
see if her best friend was still listening. Blake seemed a bit distracted, but
she didn’t think any of it yet. “Do you know I get weak in the knees near her,
Blake? I literally have to force myself not to fall to the ground every time
she just looks at me. Which remind
me, her eyes are so beautiful, but the only thing I can think of is that I
could drown in them and that seems really cliché.” Yang sighed, looked at her
feet in silence and then looked back up when her best friend didn’t reply at
“Are you even
listening, Blake?” the blonde grumbled. “I’m here confessing my undying love
for someone else because I’m too chicken and–” Blake pointed behind Yang with a
worried look and she finally caught on. “–Oh my god, she’s behind me, isn’t
More embarrassing art time! I present to you: the magnum opus of my elementary school years.
I have always LOVED cats and spent 1st to 3rd grade (aka before my life was consumed by Pokemon) ignoring the teacher and inventing innovative new cat species. I carefully documented my work in hand-bound books–there was another book like this with more cats, but I can’t find it. Probably lost to all the moving around we did. I’m amazed I still hung on to this thing for so long.
Yes, those are rubber bands holding those sheets of printer paper in place. I made do with what I had.
Not gonna lie, I still think the seal thing is pretty clever.
The text reads: “I do think I should make bigger chairs.”
I was SO PISSED when Latias and Latios came out because Nintendo stole! my idea!! I still hold a grudge to this day.
Bonus art from my sketchbook! This was after we moved to Japan as evidenced by the scrawls in the upper right.
It may be incredibly embarrassing to look back at old art, but it’s still kind of nice to have this relic from my childhood.
