Christmas Dreamers by Aikurisu Christmas Dreamers by Aikurisu
"Dreams are all some need to live in this world. Some may even seek them in reality, if their hearts know its worth and want it so."
-- Shae



Wheee... I did not think I was going to be able to finish this on time, but as fate would have it, I did! There are some things about this I think I may still work on, however, so only time will tell if this receives an update eventually. There's also a lot of symbolism involved here between Klaus and Shae and their possessions, but... bah! No time! I may discuss some of them if people are interested!

Anyhoo, may you all have a Happy Christmas, everyone! God bless and take care. =)

(On a side note, this has been allowed for a contest, hosted by #spread-theArt)

Any particular reason she is the Black Queen and he the White Knight?

Aye.  Without spoiling too much, Klaus is a noble who is seeking knowledge that will impact the world.  His background is one of honour and valour, having been trained in the arts of a Shadowsbane, who are an order devoted against agents of shadow and more importantly 'The Hand', a dark order that was founded by a powerful, malevolent tyrant who almost freed Sinalazul back into the mortal realm, who was their world's incarnation of the devil.  Klaus is particularly vengeful against them and would bury their order if he could.  However, Shae, the woman in this scene, is secretly one of their untested young acolytes for reasons I won't delve into here.  Long story short, she's no queen, yet there is a hint to her past with the Black Queen piece, while Klaus has the qualities of a holy knight.  Also, if you look closely, the position of the two pieces subtly reflects their own positions.

Very cool. I like the symbolism and the background story sounds rich and well developed.
Is this going to be a graphic novel or book at some point?

It may end up as something like my current project: aikurisu.deviantart.com/art/Se… It's my first real attempt at writing a book, despite the fact it's set in a world not my own... so I guess you could consider it a fan fiction on the surface?  Anyway, when '14 hits, I'll be taking a break from Seeds for something else, which includes illustrations on a monthly basis.  Whether it'd be the story that focuses on Klaus and Shae is unlikely, though, since the story is kinda complicated and epic in the long run.  I may just focus on a smaller story instead and am still kinda undecided on what to focus on, but it may be a book involving Klaus before he meets Shae, or it'll be a self-contained story set in another area of his world that hints to bigger things that subtly involve him, but early days.

So possibly a prequel of a small portion of your otherwise larger and more epic tale.

Pretty much.  lol, I know, that explanation of mine was pretty long-winded. =P

Anyway, I'm not sure what to focus on... yet.  I feel like asking folks for some direction, but finding those folks who are interested in it is half the battle.

This needs a mature content warning.
Reply
:iconaikurisu:
Aikurisu Featured By Owner May 18, 2013
Does it? A mature warning would be understandable if it falls within the guidelines of needing such, but there is no explicit nudity/sex (they're not exactly going for it. More like playful cuddling?) involved and there was a reason for what I'll deem as natural censorship. So just because they're naked underneath the blanket surely doesn't make that eligible for a warning? =)

You may not be able to see anything exactly, but I think it still needs a mature content warning.I know they aren't really doing it, but they're still naked which I think calls for a warning. Deviantart doesn't allow sexually explicit images, so the mature content warning can only be for things like this. It's best to just be safe and put a warning up.

Doesn't need one, the arm of the male censors the females chest. It doesn't fall into the guidelines, if it was taken down he could always send a complaint in, give reasoning and it gets put back up with all the feedback he's gotten here as well. It doesn't need one.

Well would you show this to a 13 year old? If you wouldn't show it to a kid, then IMO it should have a mature content warning.
