4/30's page

Postby Shiro on Sun Apr 29, 2001 8:03 am

So far, everyone who has seen this page swears that it looks like Ama is hitting on Gill. I didn't intend it that way, I swear. But now, no matter how I try to look at this page, a little voice in the back of my head says "yaoi."<P>What do you people think?

Yeah, that's what most people pointed out. And also, in the top right panel, where Ama's moaning, I drew Gill's arm reaching over him. However... look where it's placed.<P>Eventually someone is going to write yaoi fanfic with this page in mind, I just <I>know</I> it. I don't know wherther to be embarrassed or amused.

Really? That didn't occur to me at all. Even after your message and looking at it again, I still don't see it.

The severity of Ama's wounds is really what prevents me from seeing that interpratation of what is going on between Ama and Gill. If I try to think of it in sexual terms, I can only see it in a twisted version of Monty Python's Black Knight scene. And that was pretty twisted itself!<P>Oh yeah, keep them Ancient <i>Ways</i> coming! <IMG SRC="http://www.keenspace.com/forums/biggrin.gif">
