Taran, in last panel: not sure exactly what is happening, but pretty sure it will not end well.
Taran appears intensely uncomfortable... I'm sure he'd back away slowly if he could.
So many things happening that are way beyond this poor boy's ken...yep, I think he'd like to crawl in a hole about now.
No secret or not, Taran doesn't quite get it yet.
You're really great at ratcheting up the tension with those extreme closeups, btw...
Closeups, besides being effective at delivering emotion, serve the dual purpose of making it unnecessary to do a lot of background detail, which I despise. Hence my use and possible overuse of them! -artistdirtysecrets
Good lord, Taran looks so adorable on this page. Confused faces for the win! Also, Achren in the last panel is gorgeous,
Can't you just see him thinking, "um, Gwydion? Is this a good idea? And.../what/ is she, exactly?"
Is it just me, or do Achren's lines in the fourth panel, and the way she happens to be positioning the sword hilt, seem very . . . suggestive.
I have NO. IDEA. what you're talking about.
I just caught that. Ok... I can see that
Don't mind me speeding through to finally catch up.
Goodness, her eyes are amazing.
Hahaha, love her expression of "Oh! me?" XD It made her more cynical.
Finally making my way through all the comments having restarted this from the beginning!
Love Taran’s expression in panel 3 in response to “he is of no consequence”. Ha!
And I think you’ve got the right level of sexual tension between Gwydion and Achren—that suggestion of “maybe in another lifetime” (or a fanfic) ;)
I have my own thoughts that evolved over time from "that never happened" to "that almost certainly did happen" and it's all thanks to fanfic. ;)
