Inspired ~peahopeless's story, His Beloved Evey". It began as a followup moment to her story, Willful Blindness. The image popped into my head and wouldn't leave me alone. It evolved as she and I talked about it that evening.


"His muscles limpened ... one by one ... resting down against her as she accepted and encouraged his weight. And continuing throughout were her whispers. -- -- That everything was ok. ... That everything *would* be ok. ... And always, always that she loved him."

NOTE: Feedback for ~peahopeless's stories can be sent to PEAhopeless@aol.com . Be sure to put "fanfic" in your subject, so she doesn't mistake it for spam. :)

Media: pastel pencils, Photoshop lighting effects

What a poignant moment. You captured his distress and her supportive care so perfectly. One doesn't need a story to understand this drawing.
(Even tho the story is a hit too!)

I'm already thinking of what i could write about this picture...I thought about working it in to something I'm already writing but it's not to the point yet where it wouldn't be considered OOC. maybe in the coming chapters I'll rethink!

I have a couple fanfics on my page from my indigo assassin page on fanfic.net. I'm sure a couple of your sketches can fit in.
Have you tried any Gordon drawings?

Only one, and it's positively ridiculous. xD The "V" muse hasn't bitten in quite some time.

The pose looks so natural! Perfectly limp and supportive, respectively. Her right hand just suspended over his shoulder captures the tiny movement of a caress.
Beautiful.

I'm new around here, and I'm always hesitant to leave comments like this for some reason. But truly, a very touching picture. All of your work is really moving and beautiful. I've admired it for a good few weeks now, probably ever since I first saw 'V for Vendetta' and took interest in the dynamic between V and his leading lady. I'm no artist myself, but I can definitely appreciate another's effort, especially when it results in such a gorgeous outcome.

And Peahopeless, I've recently started reading your stories, and as something of a novice writer myself, I really admire how beautifully and tastefully you write. This story, even though I've read quite a few of your more intimate scenes (which always make my knees go a bit weak), is really a newfound favorite. It's really a sweet moment, and as always, wonderfully written.

Fantastic job, both of you! Your work really comes together to make a true masterpiece. I can't wait to see more of it.

Thank you so much for your kind words - they're very much appreciated. :thanks:

I'm afraid that ~peahopeless has put her V/Evey writing on indefinite hiatus, but she at least leaves behind an impressively large body of work. :)

He looks so brokenhearted. And Evey looks a bit more comforting, almost a mother and child motif. It's a wonderful work.

You have a mind for images like these.

You did a great job here. Her hair looks fantastic, but yeah, the almost-touch really grabs the attention. It's like she's holding back because she wants to offer comfort without coddling him too much. She's giving him just enough space, but he can lean back into her hand if he wants to. That speaks volumes about these two. :nod:

Evey's giving you trouble, too? I've been trying to paint her for the past two months off and on. Well, she doesn't cooperate. At all. :no: I tried plying her with chocolate, wine, and music. Nothing. :faint: V was much, much more cooperative about the painting process.

Hm. I can't help wondering if Evey isn't the type who, on occasion, just doesn't want her 'picture' taken. It would explain a lot, at least (although it could also simply be a function of my own limitations... :shakefist:)

She gives me fits, too, so it's not your limitations. :D I've stopped pestering her for now, but I'll finish that painting if it kills me! :nod:

i could never leave a comment as good as PEA's but i do like this ^_^. i like it and yet i don't, only because of how weak, hurt, and helpless V looks (and that sort of thing always worrys me), but i like it bacause of how good of care i know Evey is going to give V by looking at how carefuly she holds his head. you are just so amazing ^_^ *hug*

Yep, and I've got my notes waiting for me. I'm guessing it'll be one of the next ... two stories? After the ones I'm working on now? If I can get them through the current one, and maybe this one too, I guess that 'lace number' would be a light at the end of the tunnel for them.

Just like with the sketch, I'm still stuck at the hand on his shoulder ... touching, but almost not quite, as if she's worried to. I also still like his open hand ... a helplessness there.

And your style while drawing his legs really works. ... I really don't know how else to phrase it. I should also emphasize that I even say that as someone who has no personal 'crush' on the guy. But just in terms of trying to compare between your pics and visuals in the visual story (particularly the scenes at Larkhill) ... it's simply a fact. Your lines seem to be exactly right.

(And for some reason, I really like her hair in this one. I know that's entirely off topic, but I do. The tendrils. The little flip at the front of her part.

Wow - thank you. :-)

>And for some reason, I really like her hair in this one.

That's a relief to hear - Evey's still been giving me 'trouble', to the extent that one of my "to-do" projects is a portrait of her. She and I are going to sit down one of these days and I am going to draw just her, looking at the viewer from less than five feet away. She can smile, or not, or be doing something, or not... I don't care. But I will be doing this at some point. Even if I have to enlist V's help to do it. ;-)
