Holding On - Kotone x Silver by tahliadenae Holding On - Kotone x Silver by tahliadenae
UPDATED: Sorry about this reappearing in everyone's inboxes. I redrew this because my inner-perfectionist won out over my inner-fangirl. Here's the original though! Thought I'd post it elsewhere because I always find it interesting to compare how images change between different versions.

OH.
HELLO.

:iconpervysilverplz:

Doodled this up today and stuck it in photoshop. It's simple, it's quick and there are a million things wrong with it but I am so thoroughly enamored with soulsilver shipping right now that... I just don't care. :heart:

I like how Kotone came out but Silver looks… Physically ill. WHOOPS :slow: Oh well, I'll probably fix this up later. Any suggestions or critiques are very welcome! Soulsilver fangirling even MORE welcome :D!

Characters, Nintendo.
Art, me.

Favorited this a while back, but I was going back through my favorites and I came across this again...

Seriously, this is probably one of my most favorite pieces of fanart ever! Their expressions are just lovely- so much emotion! I love how Silver looks, all flustered and confused. And their HANDS, I love it! I just love all of it.

Oh my goodness, you have no idea how much your comment has made my day! Thank you SO much!

I'm so happy to know my artwork's had that effect! Thanks so much for taking the time out of your day to tell me all of that. It's gratifying from an artist's, and a fan's, point of view :heart:

Because of Silver being a character who's kinda villainous, I don't think of him and Lyra as a couple. But still, this picture looks very nice. :)

Thank you so much! While he is the rival, I don't really see him as "villainous". He's a jerk in the begining, but sort of redeems himself by the end of the game. Besides, I think it's that drama that makes them fun, haha =P

I was the same at first, but she grew on me, mostly because of the whole SilverxKotone dynamic 8D

Well since it is a pokemon game I tend to picture myself in the game rather than the character, this is especially true since I dont watch the anime AT ALL. lol I'm sorry but since organge islands I have not found the same appeal. In anycase, I do like this picture a lot since I'm playing SoulSilver right now and I really like how they've portrayed Silver in it.

:jawdrop:OMG! this is soooo cute. SoulSilve is AMAZING... and breathe. :D

It was the first out of the two that I played and I loved it, for some reason HeatGold didn't work as well for me.
I still weep every time I think about the game because I've currently missplaced the cartridge, typical of me really. :D

Anyhoo, rant over. I love this, it's awesome.

Ahhh, thank you! For both the amazing comment and the fave :heart:

Same here, I have an affinity for Silver because it was my favourite of the two back when they were first released, so Soul Silver inevitably became my favourite of the two new versions. I know what you mean about HeartGold not sitting right, though in reality the only thing different is the Kimono Girls taking you to HoOh instead of Lugia. But still, after investing so much into playing SoulSilver the first time around, playing HeartGold just didn't feel as right 8D.

Thank you! I hope you find your cartridge!

Thannks, I do to. I spent three whole days in the holidays just playing the game, got to the end then put the cartridge away and when I went to look for it, it was knowhere to be found. But there ya go. I'll probably find it when I gut my room.

The couple is affectionately referred to as "soulsilver shipping" or "silver x kotone" "silver x lyra" "kotone x rival" etc. I hope that helps fuel your fandom :XD: I drew this without even being aware of how huge the fandom was, but they're all over DA/Youtube! They're such a great couple :love:

So, for a while I've been nothing but a hardcore Rocketshipper - completely devoted, never giving other ships a glance.


But I think I've just jumped ships. This is wonderful.
