pkmn: cilan

7

After coming across @allthingsmisty‘s old headcanon about Misty and Cilan, I felt compelled to imagine what that friendship might be like. And how Cilan might help along a certain romance…

(After a lot of digital color work, I decided to go back to markers this time, with the computer for tweaks. Interesting results, but not the fastest process.)

Brock: What’s next? Ash becomes a Champion, and we all get on with our lives or search for something new. That’s always been the objective.

Cilan: I have this theory- don’t give me that look- I have this theory that we’re already Masters.

Lana: Pfft. Hey, did you hear that? Pfft. I’ve been trying to make that sound for-ever.

Tracey: I think Cilan’s right in a way. This has never been about “being the very best”. It’s about us. You, me…all of us. I think that’s why I’m here.

Lana: Little victories, Luke. Little victories.

Gary: I’m hoping for more massive, rambling diversions. Who wants closure? Let’s really stretch this sucker out.

Alain: Retirement? Of course. Eventually.

May: In the future, I’d like to see a world without contests. Ha! No. Joking.

Ash: Longer term…for me, I don’t really know. Not really thought about it. For everyone else-for my team-I’d settle for happily ever after. They deserve it.

Dawn: We haven’t even got started! Who knows what’s around the corner?

Luke: Group shot, everyone! Group shot! Everyone over here! Come on, chop chop! You too, Paul…I don’t care where everyone stands…so long as we’re all in it together.
