I'm Here by swankkat I'm Here by swankkat
Taking a break from the Disheveled for a bit, switching gears...

I tend to do art for scenes that I feel a strong connection to.
Aibhinn's stories are wonderful tapestries of character and emotion that I've discovered very few people are able to do accurately. Especially for the Doctor, whose emotions so rarely come to the surface, which makes his particular pain even more heartbreaking.

In her story, Never Alone, the TARDIS helps Rose understand what happened in the Time War, and encourages her to go to him in his time of grieving. The anguish the Doctor finally exposes leads to a tender moment... which in turn leads to one of the more emotionally charged love scenes I've read.

When I asked Aibhinn if she had any suggestions for some art, she gave me a list *yay!* and one prompt was "the Doctor with two tears running down his cheeks and his heart in his eyes, Rose with a hand on his shoulder looking sympathetically at him."

So I went and reread Never Alone (along with about 5 more of her one-off fics, heh) and decided to do a quick snapshot... right in between the moment Rose approaches the Doctor and the moment he practically collapses against her.

[link] There's a link to the story, it *is* adult content, so be warned.

As always, Doctor Who, Rose and all things related belong to the BBC, "Never Alone" is all Aibhinn, and this is all me.

Awww. x3 for some reason it took me a while to realize that the background was the Tardis and not a rainbow... but that's not your fault, that's mine for not being very background-observant. I know this says "critique not desired" so I'll shut up about that, since my critiques aren't so good anyway. The Doctor and Rose are drawn extremely well as well, it's a major "aww" moment.

aww, and I read the fic and was trying to get my mind on solely Doctor Who 'cause my mind's been running away with me when reading generally anything. (HP7 is losing me completely xD) I was reading it and getting my mind into an "awwwwww" factor, and I then suddenly realized just how sexual it was going to be, and was like, "aww...eep!!" x3 I used to be hella into romance so it didn't bother me, I just had to switch my mind from "aww" to both "awww" and "okay, sexual... mind, go plunge in the gutter please!" xDD my brain's just been working like that a lot lately. Had to reread a couple things to figure out what was goin' on. o-o

and I was hoping for it to be on, the site where I normally look at stuff. but I took one look and was like, "ack! ...ehh, that's manageable. *reads*" I would've loved to give a review, but didn't feel like signing up with that site.

I know I should probably be talking about this to the author, but an illustrator for the story whom I know how to contact right off the bat is the next best thing. o_o if you've talked with her, would you mention this comment to her? thanks ^^;

This is yet another amazing picture, the look on the Doctor's face is just so heartbreaking.

This is wonderful, and have I mentioned that I think all your is absolutely brilliant?

But... how? How did you get so good?! This is one of the best drawings of the Doctor and Rose I've ever seen! Rose and the Doctor both look exactely as they do in real life and the emotion is amazing. I didn't read the story 'cause you said it had adult content, but if it's anywhere near as good as this...

*Watches artist and wonders why I hadn't looked you up before*

I love that you do illustrations for fanfics, and I love hurt/comfort fics. I like that fic too, but one of my favorites is Satillite by firefaery2 [link]
I also have a full (and frequently updated) rec list, if you would like to take a look.

(can you tell I hoping you'll do art for some of these ;P )
neko-chan42 Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2007  Hobbyist General Artist
oops, forgot to give you the link to my rec list [link]
darksakura Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2007

Oh, you win. The look on Rose's face is so tender, and the Doctor looks so incredibly vulnerable! Great work. *faves*

Melkitty Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2007
Aww, very cute and very sweet. It makes me want to hug The Doctor and Rose. *Gives the Doctor a kiss on his forehead* *faves*
Samich Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2007
This is truly amazing and his expression makes me want to cry. I'm dead serious. I can -feel- his pain and that Rose is dying to comfort him and she's got that "I'll never leave you, I'm here for you" expression. :glomp: :worship:This is simply fantastic!
