SxS 2: Love by oryx-gazella SxS 2: Love by oryx-gazella
"I...I love you...", Stein whispered almost silently.
Spirit's eyes widened slightly in surprise.
"Stein...", Spirit replied softly before asking "...have you been drinking?"

"...just a bit", the doctor groaned closing his eyes, wrapping his other arm around his old weapon's already soaked waist.

Spirit sighed, yet continued to hold his intoxicated friend, brushing some hair out of the doctor's partly stitched face.

He carefully took Stein's cigarette and stubbed it out; the doctor could barely stand yet alone smoke.

The Deathsythe had gone over to Stein's lab to ask his old meister...something... he couldn't really remember what exactly it was right now, as the sight of Stein out in the pouring rain, staggering around had swept all his previous thoughts away.

He had to find out why Stein was in this state...

Woo, Number 2 of the challenge: Love :)

Full List: [link]

Seeing as I drew a literal in-bed-picture for the OroKabu Challenge, I kinda wanted to draw something a bit different for SteinxSpirit.

As I figured there are lots of different types of love; I wanted the love that Stein and Spirit share not necessarily be sexual in this picture but, more so a love between two people whom have been together for so long.

They have seen each other's faults and good points and accept them both.

Also, the classic line of "I love yoooouuu~" is sometimes said when drunk so I guess both of these themes went into this picture XD

Hah, spot the deliberate mistake. Stein has no glasses :P

The writing says " Boku wa... boku wa anata o aishiteimasu" which means "I love you" ;)

Image made with HB pencil 0.5, limited clean up around the faces and coloured in the computer.

Stein and Spirit belong to Atsushim Okubo.

Ooh, this is just awesome! I just love the sketchy feel to it, and I love the expression you brought out here.

Also, that bit at the top of your comments, is that from a particular fanfiction? If you already said it was and I just forgot to read it or something then just disregard me XD

Beautiful texture, colors, and overall mood for this picture. As always I love your expressions, Spirit's hidden eyes, Stein's tired ones. Spirit's shirt is amazing too! I really can appreciate the kind of love portrayed here, just like with the protection picture. I think what best describes them is a kind of 'mostly silent, desperate love' or something.

Thank you very much :love: I love concentrating on the expressions mostly, so I am very pleased that you like this art work :D

And yes! I agree 100% with your discription of their love being 'mostly silent, desperate love' :)

I find that when I draw Stein and Spirit together; I try to make their love be very unspoken, as I like to think that both parties know how the other feels...but yet they do nothing about it XD

Originally Spirit was going to be holding the glasses but, while I was adding in the shading, I forgot all about them, haha ^^;

Thank you :) I try to keep it neat and easy-flowing...although once I was told my hand writing is very loopy in Japanese...and English XD

Ah, I bet yours is better than mine, really :P

Hahaha. I've done that. And then I just decide that the glasses were lost or forgotten elsewhere. =P But that might just be me being lazy. Hahaha.

And loopy it may be, it's still very nice. And you haven't seen my Japanese. It's awful. I'm surprised my grandparents can read it to be honest. XD

Hahaha. My grandparents are Japanese. They flew into Canada when they were younger. And they often force me to read and write in Japanese all the time. XD

AH! XDDD Awesome! My grandparents are Scottish...but they make me write in Japanese too, ironically enough! XDDDDD Only to see how my Japanese classes have been going and to see if I am actually learning stuff ^^; (plus my grandad is determinded to learn some hiragana, bless him)

Awww. That's cute. My grandparents just do it to see if one of their grandchildren really is carrying the Japanese DNA. XD
