These are two pieces I did for a Cartoon Network Tribute show in Anaheim a few weeks ago! I still have a few prints left of each from a limited run that I made – please let me know if you’d like one! 8.5″ x 11″ on nice matte cardstock – $10 each.
Bestowed upon by Japan’s native son. The successor of the sword. ALL. HAIL. SAMURAI. ASHI
Been wanting to do some thing like this for a while after watching the season. I took some time away from the divide and stepped outside the romance that was created by the fandom to really look at the story and honestly, it seems to be a story of generations and a story of children. I honestly think the most beautiful end to this story is for Jack and the Scotsman to rest and celebrate in a quest and life well lived and fought for and let their daughters take up the sword. I truly believe Ashi is now pure of heart and will be Jack successor.
What a beautiful and fitting way to end the series with people who watched it as kids now watching it with their own. These last 3 episodes are truly the determining factor and I have faith it’s going to be a story of redemption, tragedy, and YES love. Maybe not the love story that’s preferred, but just as powerful.
OK BUT WAIT A SECOND LET ME HELP Y’ALL IN YOUR GRIEF
Ok so we’re all grieving right now, I know. I think I’ve already gone through the first 3 stages of the grieving process. But listen:
CASTIEL PROMISED TO TAKE CARE OF “JACK”
what do we know:
- Jack is not a baby. He grows similar to the way Amara grew when she was “born”
- He is nephilim, meaning he’s part human. He has humanity in him, so he can’t be all bad like his dad. Besides, Lucifer is an angel. He was not born bad. So, maybe it will all be in the way Jack is raised. We don’t know.
- We know Jack had powers even when he was in the womb, so he probably already knows about his mom, castiel and his promise (fatherhood), etc.
So what does all of this mean? IF JACK IS AT ALL HUMAN, HE COULD DECIDE TO BRING CASTIEL BACK
HE COULD REALIZE THAT CAS HAS A PROMISE HE NEEDS TO UPHOLD AND BRING HIM BACK, BECAUSE IT’S PLAIN OBVIOUS THAT JACK WOULD HAVE THE POWER TO DO THAT.
WE CAN’T LOSE HOPE. FIND A FRIENDLY SHOULDER TO CRY ON. POST THEORIES THAT YOU MAY HAVE.
