The Dark Angel Flies Tonight by ruriko The Dark Angel Flies Tonight by ruriko
Geeeeezzz~ When was the last time I submitted anything DECENT on my DA account?! >.>; ~grrr~

.. yes, well... anyways. :o


I've been reading this book by Meredith Ann Pierce called: The DarkAngel (its a trilogy, and I've only just finished the first book XD)

~foams~ wow.. Sorry if you're not into reading vampirish books but... I do! ;D
There's just so much character in this book, yarrr.. :3 Veddy good stuff.

While I began reading this book, the description of these characters seriously reminded me of the people from Final Fantasy VII (7).
So why not cosplay the characters of FF7 as those from The DarkAngel?
I highly doubt I'll make a little "series" of this.. But it was fun none-the-less.

The DarkAngel is described as a pale-skinned, silver-haired, ice-like-eyed, cold man..
o x;
And during the course of the book he (Whom I placed as Sephiroth) eventually tries to kill the main character, Aerial.. Much like how Sephiroth tried to (and did so succesfully) kill Aeris/Aerith/blahblahblah... o.0;

I would like to talk about this story more, but I don't want to give away too much of it. x.X;
So, er... Enjoy? :hug:

I love the /icarus/vampyre! You made him look pretty visually as well as what I mentally envision him as! Yay!

This is really great! I never thought of Irrylath as Sephiroth before, though...

Don't forget that Darkangel was published back in '82. Therefore, Sephiroth is very much like Irrylath.

I especially like the part where he's talking about his mother. Who is not his mother. Who is an ice witch. Who controls him. Yes, I definately like when Sephy talks about his mother.

...wait. Let me rephrase that. Yes, I definately like when the icarus talks about his mother.

That's about right.

But the similarities end after Aeriel stays in the Tour for too long. The vampyre is more immature and self serving than Sephiroth. The more we get to know the vampyre, and later Irrylath, the less like Seph he seems.

lol. Crap. I have only read the first fifty pages. But I guess giving away the first book isn't too bad... *sob* My fault entirely.. I know. He seems perfectly in charicter here too. And you are definitly right about Sephy.

I absolutely love those books. I feel very bad for Ariel in the end though.

I'm overjoyed to see that I am not the only one who loves this novel. This drawing is beautiful, and I knew I'd fav it when I first saw the thumbnail. It's positively beautiful, as is the book... which I finished reading The Darkangel about 5 minutes ago. XD

Omg! I just finished reading that too! And now I am reading A gathering of gargoyles!

Anyway, this is great. Sephiroth...does fit into the description. I tried drawing the Dark Angel, but it didn't come out nearly as good as this!

You should draw the gargoyles...or something! 'Cus this pic rocks!
