Allow me to elaborate a little on the history of this page. Originally, Fliss and Carlita were supposed to be depicted in this scene as having sex, and Shanna was to interrupt this. Now, don’t get me wrong; I’m not squeamish, and I really don’t have a problem depicting my characters in that kind of setting. But as I thought about it, I realised that while I COULD have illustrated that scene, all in all there was no real purpose to it. Who, really, would I be doing that for? For myself? As fanservice? Did it even provide any form of development or was it simple, base titillation?

I elected to change the scene slightly. Rather than show the couple having sex, why not show them in an embrace, safe and comfortable in each others’ arms? Fliss has just undergone a dramatic, traumatic upheaval in her life. Faced with rejection from one she held dear, would making love really be on her list of priorities? I think that this is so much warmer, so much nicer and touching.

We can probably assume that their relationship has a physical component to it, anyway. I can’t think of a single couple in Elf Blood who wouldn’t!

Anyways, have a great week and I’ll see you all on Friday!
