Reunion by Striped-Stocking Reunion by Striped-Stocking
Booya, another commission done! :D This one's for :iconlupine1515: :)

I had lots of fun drawing this, not only cause it's (finally) some Frecklecouple again :D.
It's supposted to take place a little after the war, hence Shep still being injured and this would be the point the two meet again :).

I feel like these pictures go with a fanfic if they do can someone tell me the title?

I can never look at this piece enough. Working with you was a blast and I'm so happy that I saw "Embrace My Eternity" on a Femshep fan Twitter feed. You do amazing work and I'm eager to see your future work.

What I think is awesome is everyone's reaction to this piece. So many of the important emotions and feelings i envisioned for this scene came through beautifully, which is a testament to your talent:

"In my mind, its taken Liara a few weeks/months to take the Normandy back to the Citadel. She's held out hope, against her better judgement and maybe even advice of her friends that her love survived. Shepard was found in the rubble of the Citadel, barely alive, sustained by the hope of seeing Liara, having won the peace for them, for everyone. Not knowing if her crew-Liara- survived or not, she's been recovering, maybe just out of the hospital (not really looking for some weepy deathbed scene). And this would be that first moment they're reunited; quiet, almost disbelieving, but the first touch reassuring and affirming so much: love, victory, sacrifice, peace, and the future."

This came out better than I'd ever hoped. You're amazing!

Love it!

And I gotta say that if this is post ME3, Shep got off light with only that hand bandage. ;-)

Heh, I agree, but I was specifically instructed to not make it a deathbed scene and keep injuries light. The wonders of medi-gel :D.
And I actually preferred drawing it like that, not a big fan of angsty stuff ^^.

Hey girl! You really blow me away with your drawings but this one's my very favourite! I'm like ''AAAWWWWW!'' (even bigger than that... it's a HUGE AAAWWWWW). It's perfectly executed. Total fan here! :#1:

Oh wow, nice to see those two back, even when this is a commission! The background with the Citadel looks amazing (also great nebula effects!), and even that the two characters are at the left, the main focus is still on them! The expressions... it's easy two see how glad both are to see each other back and in their arms!

So is this a fictional ending where those two reunite, or some time after the destroy ending?

Yess, I missed them, too! It was soo nice to draw them again, finally :'D.

This is supposted to be some time after the destroy ending, where Shep's been recovering
for a while and Liara's finally made it back to her and they get their reunion...*cough* I would've liked a reunion to be in the game *cough*

Liara's hand... ashdjfkhs, it is perfect. As is the rest of the picture, but I don't have the capacity to focus on all that beauty at once.
Actually, I particularly like the background; it really makes this special. Two people next to the vastness of space... *feels attack*

Hahahaha, thanks, I think this is the first time I got
Liara's hands to somewhat resemble her actual outfit, cause usually, I'm a little too lazy for it :D.
Space is always fun to draw, so I think I got a little carried away and spent extra
time on the background :'D. Glad you like it :meow:

Yay! FreckleCouple! :squee:

Liara's face has such great emotion to it, she looks so happy yet also like she can't believe her love it standing before her. So much love portrayed in Shepards eyes as well.

I like the Citadel in the background as well! Not a lot of love for the Citadel on dA.

And again you hit me with the delayed kiss. I want them to kiss so bad yet no matter how long I wait, it won't happen. :P

Beautiful artwork, as usual. :D Thanks so much Lupine1515 for commissioning this! And thank-you Striped for always making such amazing art! :hug:

Mwahahaha, yesss, moar delayed kissing!! :XD: I should probably stop
being a tease about it :'D. Maybe in the next one..just maybe :P.

Awwee and thanks again for another kind comment :hug:

Ahhh, yes, now kiss :iconnowkissplz: Hahaha, yes, you're okay, just the natural
reaction when seeing these two, I suppose :P. In my new pic there's kissing going on :D Not between those
two, but hey..close enough :XD:?

It'll work for now, I guess. :P But be warned, Liara and FemShep will kiss, or I might just explode in anticipation.

You don't want me to explode now do you? ;)

I could try and make them less cute for you :P. But I doubt you'd be happy with that :'D. Also, I don't think Liara and Shep can be non-cute, they're just always adorable :D.
