I’m going through my first PC hard-drive and found these wallpapers deep within my twelve-year-old self’s folders. I thought these wallpapers were the bees’ knees, man.
look at what i did to the inside cover of my agenda in 8th grade
look at it
I was looking through some of my old iPhone photos and I don’t remember when I took this but its from the first Contestshiping anthology (called 薔薇色サンセット or Rose Sunset) that was released back in 2005. This has to be my favorite story in the entire anthology and its drawn by fallxalice (but her original site no longer exists).
Summary: May is exhausted after a day of shopping and decides to look at a bunch of flowers at a flower shop. Lo and behold, Drew just happens to pop up behind her as May is looking over some flowers. They bicker a little but May decides to point out which flower reminds her of Drew (which I don’t remember and unfortunately the doujin in packed in a box). When May asks Drew what flower reminds him of her, he picks the キジムシロ or Kijimushiro (known as Potentilla which is a flower in the Rose family). In the language of flowers, it means “明るく輝いて” or “to shine brightly.” He walks away in his usual fashion and leaves May in her embarrassed state.
Side note: The stem of the potentilla is often boiled to stop bleeding and this created a new headcanon where May’s energy actually helped Drew at a time where he was really hurting, possibly after a recent contest loss. I’m referring to when he happened to see her on the beach in Now That’s Flower Power!, her energy as a new contest participant must have shined a light on the shadow of his previous losses. In essence, she’s his “shining” light that keeps him going loss after loss. I DON’T KNOW IGNORE THIS LAST PART I’M BEING STUPID
A sign of evolution by Teppo
I wish Teppo would make more doujins. (●´艸｀)ヾ I started following her website in 2002 and now its 2013 (I’m growing old) and she started selling doujinshi at Comiket 3 years ago. She’s such a good artist and she’s really improved over the years (and I told myself that if I started years ago maybe I wouldn’t be drawing odd potatoes on my paper). I bought this particular one from Pikado and they do international shipping! At first I was a little weary that they would take my money but they’re very fast and completely trustworthy. However their signup option doesn’t seem to work anymore so I’m not sure how you’ll be able to order if you don’t already have an account.
I have this headcanon where May and Drew actually nickname their Honeymoon “May and Drew’s Great Expedition”.
This is so adorbz <3 Cute HC!
