A slew of love letters by MagnaStorm A slew of love letters by MagnaStorm
Titled after the track that plays during this sequence in the game.

So, when I saw that :iconff9-club: was having an event called "remember the moment", I started thinking about what moment from the game really stuck out for me. At first I thought of the obvious major moments and events, but then I realized that the love letter sequence was what really came to my mind. I started off with drawing Eiko loosing the letter, but then the drawing kept growing and growing until it had all the characters involved with the letter.

Drawing all the different characters was really fun and refreshing since most of them are types I don't normally draw. I think I spent about 25 hours in total on this drawing since the beginning of December @_@

I used to spend most of this sequence going "NOOOOO, GAAAAAAME, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO THAT'S WROOOOOONG", but now I just find it silly and entertaining lol.

I've played the game before and now that I'm in college studying literature and more specifically Shakespeare I can see some really good connections. This sort of thing happens all the time with a Shakespearean play, people hide around the corner and hear everything, a letter that got into the wrong hands, etc. What makes this even more hilarious is that something like this happens in Much Ado About Nothing between Benedick and Beatrice (get it?). You just need to read the play because I'm too tired of explaining things right now. But the play is hilarious.

Ahahaha! Steiner's face is just too much! Actually, that's pretty much how I'd imagine his reaction to be, anyway. Honestly, I think Baku is my hero. Especially after this sequence.

Wonderful work, I think you captured everything perfectly in just one picture. :heart:

For some reason I imagine a really obnoxious, high-pitched squeal here--even more so than little Eiko's scream. ...I see him having this ridiculous baritone, but...when he's frightened, shocked or embarrassed...he's more annoying than that rusty junk he calls armor. Hah!

I used to facepalm this scene, because in my head I couldn't bare to see how General Beatrix was reduced to a silly love letter fiasco. Now I can't help but laugh at the irony of the whole situation. Definitely one of the game's more entertaining moments <3

Love is a pipe dream to Beatrix, and the only reason she went to the docks in the first place is because she...well, she had the mind of a crazed, love-struck school girl upon reading the letter. Hah!

lol I'm glad to find out someone else felt the same as I had! It seems like most people were so gung-ho about the scene and the Steiner/Beatrix pairing to begin with that I was shocked. But, I suppose with time it grew on me too (after, what, the 30th run through of the game? lol)

I'm still not too happy ol' General's gone and settled with Rust Bucket. But hey, at least that's better than the canonical romance going on between Her Majesty and the Prince-Consort. :/ Zidane and Garnet kinda SAWK. XD

Beatrix definitely could've done better, but Steiner's a chivalrous man, with his priorities in mind. So, I suppose it's all good. >_> Then again, her and Kuja would have made an interesting pair, had she been flattered with his advances. I imagine she's the first to ever slap him.
