James and Jill, taking a walk at the beach.

Don't imagine them as one of these super-duper-lovey-dovey-we're completely-involved-with-each-other couples with meeting the other's parents and all. They like each other. They really do. They're seeing each other from time to time but the whole thing is really casual. They won't stick together like glue or something like that. It won't last forever and both of them know it. You can enjoy spending time with someone without demanding too much from each other.
Also, just pointing it out, for the record: This is pretty much the only thing I'm going to do that has some sort of a romantic vibe coming off it. At least with those two. I'm just not into that kind of stuff and James isn't that much boyfriend material anyway. He will probably occasionally see some girls in his life but in the end, he's not the right guy for that shit. Jill will appear again, from time to time, but not necessarily in this context. James will remain just as he is now. I love him most that way. He shall have his flings over the time (where's the fun if he didn't?) but he'd actually bore me if he decided to hook up with anyone for eternity. That also includes Holly. I'm sorry. :D


Still having so much fun with Jill. I think that's mostly because I enjoy drawing her so much. Though... no. She has grown on me. Like, a lot. :heart:

Anyway, this is a tiny little thing I felt like doing. :D Yes, Jill is wearing heels at the beach just because she is that awesome. xD And James is james-y as usual. He just rocks those flip flops. He'd wear them at any formal occasion if he could. He would MARRY in them. If he was... well... the marrying type.

Art and characters (c) me.

Well, nobody said you have to? Then again, what's your point? Some people like to find "the one", others don't want to settle down for a long time and like to meet several people in their lives. Nothing bad about that, I'd say. It's life. I kinda don't know what to do with your comment. xD

Me was just stating my opinion. Always makes me feel sorta ill. That's what I don't like about James Bond and Batman and stuff.

In that case, the only piece of advice I can give to you is to stay away from my characters. Because some of them are supposed to do the kind of stuff that makes you sick and I really have no intentions of changing their ways of living. ;)

I don't understand why, but I have a dislike for Jill. Her... Personality bugs me. D:
I love ALL of your characters, except for her. :( OHGAWDWHY.
This picture is nice though, I do enjoy her style in clothes and such, that's pretty fun. C:

That's okay, you don't have to like her after all! I guess it's a good thing when characters provoke different reactions. However, I got that a few times about Jill already and I always find it kinda 'funny' since she's the one character I have never revealed an actual 'personality' about, except for some older tidbits that are horribly outdated (since she was never meant to be a bigger character, she just grew to me over the months). Well. *shrugs* I can accept your opinion but that's pretty much all I can give you because, personally, I enjoy her character very much and I have no intention of changing her. :)

Thanks. :)

I love realistic backstories! *u* I have absolutely nothing against a surprising little twist or two, but in the end, I prefer my peeps (and characters in general) as simple human beings. :) Some people might find that boring but when it comes to character development, I'm pretty much a "Less is more." girl. :D So glad you can appreciate that! :heart:

And thank yooouuu! :D

:') I think I've told you this before, but you've really rekindled my love for my characters. <333 So thank you.
I'm a bit of a sucker for the every-day themes in stories and such. Like you said, there's nothing wrong with plot twists, but I also like reading believable stories about average people.

T_T I want red hair.

Even though I would love to see the lovey-dovey James and Jill, I do agree that it just isn't them. And do like that this 'relationship' of their's is casual.

heheh James is just like "f*ck it, I'm cool or whatever." :D

Yup, making them lovey-dovey would be completely OOC. :D And I don't want that. I don't even want lovey-dovey stuff. Don't like lovey-dovey. xD

Yeah, something like that, haha! :D
