Another request, and one I meant to do a long while ago. Sometimes I wonder if I just have a thing for tragic couples, but these two are precious.
There’s kinda a backstory to this image. I sort of imagine that, seeing as the Sufferer is supposed to be an allusion to the biblical Christ, he would *know* in a sense about his inevitable and torturous demise. So, I drew this thinking he believed the time would be coming soon, but didn’t have the heart to tell the Disciple, thus his expression and her blissful ignorance. ;;
Sra. Dolorosa looked up at the grown man who was once a baby that she was to care for if she was going to be a citizen. “Mama, do you think it would be the right time to ask her? I mean, marriage is a big thing and what if she says no and and….”
He took a breath and she interjected with,“Kankri, why are you doubting yourself?” A sliver eyebrow shot up on her face as a smile grew on her lips. His words started to stumble out of his mouth before he closed it. “See of you believed in yourself then you wouldn’t worry.”
She went back to what she was doing. He slipped his hand in his pocket and felt the small ring box weighing down his pocket. “ I’m….I’m gonna call her.” The woman smiled as she walked away and picked up the phone. He dialed the oh - so- familiar number of his girlfriend. After only about three rings, he heard her sweet voice on the other end of the line. “Hello Kankritty What’s up?” she asked sweetly.
“Uh Meulin will you met me down at the coffee shop?”,
“Of course! Why though?” she asked curiously.
“It’s a surprise, You’ll see when you get there, okay?” He felt himself grin as he spoke, “ I’ll see you there.” He hung up and grabbed his jacket as he headed out the door.
“I believe in you nino!” He heard this “mother” shout out to him as he closed the door, making his way down the street and crossing a few more as he neared his destination. Finally the coffee shop came into view. He smiled slightly, thinking of the memories he had shared with Meulin in this very place. He pushed the door open and took a nearby seat.
About ten minutes later, she had entered. It was like his whole world lit up when he saw her. She sat across from him and they began to chat about idle things when her eyes lit up, “ So why did you want me to come down here?”, A small smirk played on her lips as she leaned in closer.
“M-meulin I w-was wondering if you would just happen to honor me by being my wife?” He finished the question quietly as his hand clumsily slipped into his pocket and pulled out the ring box. He opened it when his hand reached the table. The ring itself had no special qualities about it, just an old world charm. The woman in front of him was silent for only a few moments until she manged to squeak out a small “ yes” and a vigorous nod. He happily slid the ring on her finger and smiled as he he held onto her hands. There was something so strange yet peaceful about this moment, it felt like everything was finally right in the world.

i have come to the conclusion that pairings where character a has some kind of obligation or responsibility (preferably science) that might interfere with their relationship with character b are totally my weakness i mean
katara x aang?
jeremie x aelita? (that one can swing either way)
sufferer x disciple? (or sufferer x Ψiioniic i can totes go either one tbh)
