Understanding - Jian + Yan-sui by sylvacoer Understanding - Jian + Yan-sui by sylvacoer
Scene from Tales of the Spirit World: Fall of the Blue Spirit my Avatar-verse legends project. Part VIII. Of Yǎn-sui and Jiān: Searching can be found here.

"...Yǎn-sui stared at her, impossibly statue-still in the little boat upon the river, ghost-white and night-black against the deepening indigo of sky and water. She had been worried… no! She only pretended to be worried about him! And yet, when he had defied her, been belligerent, then patronizing… instead of bringing him to heel as those of her kind would have, she had practically begged that he not force her to take that route! She desired to be his friend… and impossible, illogical, insane wish, of course… why should any god behave so improperly?"

Jiān's a fun character to write, especially from the point of view of another character, if they're as worldy-wise as Yǎn-sui. He's having a hell of a time trying to understand how she can be the way she is!

I'm so in love with Jian's character design! I love her personality too but that's neither here nor there. More great work from you and I love how well their opposing natures work so well together. Really hit their expressions dead on how I'd imagine them from you writing too! Fave! ^_^

I hope so - I'm trying to keep this story from slipping into cliche!

I friggin love profiles. They're so powerful. :heart: Great job on the background! I can really see the depth in it. (something I suck at.)

BWAA. :heart:

Man, drawing facial expressions on Yan-Sui would be hard. O.o
