VI - The Lovers by Gasara VI - The Lovers by Gasara
Will I be dancing on the flames or standing at the gates when I'm leaving?

Oh, this pictures has so much meaning and there's just so much symbolism too. But before I get into that...

Happy Valentine's day~! :love:
Consider this my gift to you all - friends, watchers, passing acquaintances and you, random person, who just happened to stumble upon this deviation - because I love every single one of you!

So then, this picture - somewhat accidentally - represents the Lovers tarot card. It shows Masa and Munryeo in a loving embrace, fighting against their bonds to be together. Munryeo is a priest whose faith is unfaltering whereas Masa's less than moral past has bound him to the darkness.

I could go into super detail about it but I'll let you make up your own minds as to what it means to you. Maybe it means nothing beyond 'Oh, teh pretties!', and that's quite all right, too. :nod:

Masa & Munryeo

Big round of applause to my awesome sister, :iconmyvxkirito:, who made the connection between this and the Lovers card. Because she is just that clever. :clap:

Also, both are men. Just thought I'd mention that in case it wasn't obvious. I'm looking at you, Munryeo...

At first, I thought they were both girls because of the anatomy and the hair. Then, I looked at their faces and I thought these were guys. Then I got thrown off by the lashes. I finally read the art description and I was ohhhhh lol.

Good job with the androgynous depictions. Obviously, this threw me on a loop.

This is fantastic and touching. I read Munryeo's profile (the other's you have too, but I prefer Munry) and he is simply precious! You have amazing talent and imagination. Way to go.

Before I say anything though...

I want Munryeo's anklet!! >O<

Okay, I'm good (:
I'm probably looking at this again for, like, the millionth time, but it's just so beautiful [and I'm a fan of tarot cards xD]. I love how you draw, period <3 The chains especially [wow, I hope that doesn't sound weird xD].

Isn't the Lovers a card about three people? So maybe the chains are the third person, holding the one in black back? Just guessing. :)
