Jaina and Kalecgos: Grief and love by TemplumSanctus Jaina and Kalecgos: Grief and love by TemplumSanctus
**SPOILERS if you haven't read Christie Golden's "Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War"**

I about lost it when I read this part. Grieve, Jaina, grieve, it's okay. T_T So I had to see if I could cram all that emotion into this drawing... Well, I tried.

On a happier note, OMG JAINA x KALECGOS, YESSSSS. As pissed off as I am at Garrosh, it's being slightly overshadowed by just how much I APPROVE of this official pairing. It's about fraking TIME. So much yummyness to draw! So if I can get the urge to do something other than read all the time (almost caught up on my books list...), more sketchy fangirlyness will be smearing its way here in the not too distant future. =3

But seriously, I need to clean this up. This drawing begs to be (rubbishly) colored.


Jaina and Kalecgos belong to Blizzard (unfortunately).

Having eaten the book in merely a day, I hereby eminently approve of this couple. I must read MORE about these two. I have a soft spot for these specific romantic things.

A little bit sad that Kalec X Tyri is forgotten.
But this isn't so bad.

Honestly this new pairing was the thing i most loved the book but...
A terrible book under many aspects, i mean... it seems to me that Blizzard (and Christie Golden) decided 1)to destroy what Knaak wrote and 2) cut the whole dragons plot.
All this considering too that in my opinion the Golden has much less writing skill then Knaak (battle and fighting scenes are not so "epic" as they were wrote in the War of Ancients trilogy) and despite i admit that Rhonin wasn't exactly my favourite character, it's clear that they wanted simply "clean" away all the Knaak's created characters..
But also i now dislike how they turned dragons.
1) They wanted to put a stop to WoW expansions based on dragons, so they left the Aspects powerless and loosing their meaning, stating that their purpose was "stop Deathwing", something of false because the Titans gave them the powers to let the Aspect being some sort of emanations, essences embodied of the Azeroth's powers (life, magic, time and so on..) what they did was simply stupid and deliberately destructive
2) Even worse in this new "book", Dragons were shown to have an ancient and millennial culture... and the Blue Dragonflight disband in this way?? O.O What about their links as mates, the battles they fought, what they created and built together. I could have understood if it was said that they left the Nexus ... but not that the whole Flight "disband.."

I'm still loving the characters and the lore,,, but i'm ever more disappointed by Blizzard choices. Well... not exactly disappointed, i'm more aware that are choices done only to gain more profit.
At least they can't ruin Starcraft too much <.<

I love you I love you I love you the first picture of this pairing I've seen yet and it's a nice change from all the creepy pictures of Kalec and Anveena.

And this pairing is beautiful.
