I must ask...does THIS one have words? Because if it does not, I may be sorely tempted to make them exist myself...I love a good fight scene like WOAH
As for the imagery, beeeea~utiful. Love the expressions, the poses, even the clothing. Love the feel of the weight; Usopp doesn't just look like he's standing back to back with Zoro, he looks like he's holding him UP. There's a tension to the whole thing that feels like a fast-paced battle, but despite it I don't feel worried for the characters; they seem quite confident despite all that. The whole thing just makes me squee, I'm surprised I didn't see it before
*VelkynKarma has just realized fight scenes are apparently more squeeworthy to her than the dozens of images of various pairings in your gallery* Geeeez what is WRONG with me? No wonder I like Zoro so much XP Apparently I've picked combat over smexiness....*facepalm*
Hahahahaha but combat IS sexy! I mean, just look at Sanji fighting (ok so I have a huge bias there but it's truuuue~~). And yeah, Zoro fighting, totally a valid reason to like him |D I like a good fight scene, and this goes for fics too. Those you write are really awesome btw. I'm lame and I don't review fics much but I really enjoy them, so I had a squee when you said make them exist 8D That'd be so cool~~ Because no, there's no words for it yet...
And and thank youuuu for the nice comment again <3 And you're right to not be worried for them. Zoro and Usopp are too badass to be beaten by a few mooks. Zoro barely lost any blood too X3
Lol I suppose combat CAN be sexy, but I don't think I'm seeing it the 'right way' XP Observe, my mentality: To an image of Zoro training shirtless or whatever: Mm, nice muscles, cool ^^ to an image of Zoro beating the crap out of half a dozen enemies in a random combat sequence: WHOOO! More blood, more blood! AWESOME!
It's okay though. It's insane but sanity is overrated anyway. Pffft.
"Zoro barely lost any blood too X3" PFFT. That is easily remedied. THERE'S A WHOLE HALF OF HIM THAT CAN'T BE SEEN FROM THIS ANGLE.
Also there are now words. It was delightfully fun to write a combat scene without having to worry about fic continuity (Does Zoro still have that one injury he got six chapters ago? Does Usopp still have that item that he picked up at the start of the fic? etc etc). D'you mind if I post it on FF.net? I don't think I have another place to host it, since I don't do fanfics here anymore and I don't have a livejournal XP
(Though it'll prolly have to wait til the weekend regardless, I've got a full shift tomorrow )
Ooh! They both look so great! I love the modifications to Usopp's wristband!! And yeah, this is definitely heroic. Love the picture--this looks like much cooler fight than when they, ah, "teamed up" at Enies Lobby...
