listen I ran a goddamn blog devoted to re-animating and re-drawing eyeshield 21 anime stuff, I was that pissed about it. in retrospect I coulda run the blog better–not tagged posts that were just straight-up complaining, etc.–but I stand by the sentiment. it was such a betrayal, honestly.
okay so ive hc’d michael as touch averse ever since the beginning of time because Projecting but seeing him as a Tactile Touchy Boy added eighteen years to my lifespan and blessed my entire family clan. now, desperately, i want to reconcile these two seemingly contrasting concepts i hold dear, before i realized that they can totally co-exist rather easily.
so: michael is touch averse but he likes touching. the dissonance between not liking it when others touch you vs. still craving for contact anyway is a Real Thing and michael totally has it. thankfully he’s got, jeremy, best friend of twelve years who knows him more than anybody and knows this and is completely game for michael’s near non-stop touches. It’s Their Thing. jeremy touches michael a lot less, but when he does, michael never minds. he never hates it when it’s jeremy (and maybe even loves it), and that isn’t just by virtue of michael, but also on jeremy for just being able to read him so well and know when the right time is for a playful shove or a hand on the shoulder. the discrepancy between physical contact never has time to confuse michael, because jeremy never let’s it be anything less than completely okay.
Okay, so me and my friend (who is also a girl) have this pact that whenever a guy hits on us or something, we pretend we’re dating.
So, we just ate at this one bar (they have really good burgers) and we both agreed not to drink. Well, while she’s in the bathroom, this guy slides in the stool next to me and asks if he could buy me a drink. Panicking, I said no because I was pregnant.
At that moment, my friend (who again is a girl) comes back, sees this guys flirting, and proceeds to wrap her arms around me and kiss my cheek, and says “Hey, babe! Who’s this?”
The guys immediately catches on and just gives me this blank stare, and I’m sweating so I just let out this awkward laugh and say, “It’s a miracle!
I’m not quite done with this but I decided I’ve kept you guys waiting long enough. I really love Bioshock Infinite and the Bioshock series and I really hope I can draw more bioshock art for ya’ll. But for now I present you with Elizabeth, The Broken Little Bird . Hope you guys enjoy this piece:)
