TWEWY - Miracle by KimYoshiko TWEWY - Miracle by KimYoshiko
Sorry it's late! XD

100% JoshNeku fluff. Joshua wishes Neku a Merry Christmas. Of course, them being them, it can't ever be that straightforward, can it.

A little bit of an experiment in linework, paneling, and combining written narrative with illustration. Not quite fanfiction, not exactly a comic. I'll be working with this a lot more in 2013 (hopefully)! :D

(By the way, Neku's comments on what Christmas is about are pretty much spot-on for what Christmas is about in Japan ^^; )

I love your dialogue so much! I could hear their voices as I read it because it fit so perfectly! You did a great job keeping their personalities in check!
I also love how Josh appeared in his reflection...

Icelily17 Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
This beautiful!! I have never played this game (IWANTTOSOBADTHOUGH) and had almost no experience with it, minus KH3D. But this is just lovely, and touching.

DarkRain25 Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012
Oh my gosh, Kim! xD I love you sooo much XXDD
Sonic-Freak Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012
Hahaha! Beautiful! Perfect! I love the dialogue! Spot-on! "personal space, it's still a thing" Oh, I love it, I love it all. It definitely gets a fav.

As for the drawings, I like it. I like the style, it's minimal, but good. My only concern is their faces I don't know, it's a different style and they look older, like much older. Especially Neku. But, that's just opinion.
KimYoshiko Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012  Student Digital Artist
I've noticed that, not only with the TWEWY characters, but with all of Nomura's character designs in general, that my method of drawing them is quite different and has that kind of effect. I think it's because a lot of my style derives from Osamu Tezuka and Masashi Kishimoto in particular, so when it gets applied to Nomura's super-animu-muscle-mass-what-is-that characters, it ends up looking a little strange at first. :D Thank you for the compliments though!
Neferahmose Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012
This is adorable. x3 I absolutely adore how spot on your characterization is of these two, and my innner Joshua giggles greatly at the whole conversation. x'D Please continue to write little things like this, I really enjoyed it~ ^^
V-chan10 Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012
So, I don't ship JoshNeku, but this was entirely amazing. I mean, it's full of subtext I kept picking up on during the Game, but nothing too weird. And Neku's being so snarky while Josh seems to enjoy flustering him and even though they're butting heads, they're still friends underneath it all and that's exactly what I think their relationship is about; snark and witty banter and a friendship made of it.
Kikishadowwolf Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
So kawaii with fluff~
MonochromePixel Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012
You did a really good job at portraying their dynamic! A lot of people tend to get them fairly OOC, but you did a fantastic job at keeping them in character.

I really like the way you formatted this, too.
khetalia Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

raberbagirl Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012  Hobbyist Writer
The yaoi fangirls turn me off from this pairing, but this comic is an example of EXACTLY the kind of Neku/Josh I actually love. ^^ Neku being all resistant and "cool," Josh being sweetly snarky, both of them hilariously sarcastic as they banter and yet somehow connecting in this comfortable, friendly's really cute and sweet, I like it very much. ^^

The way Joshua appeared (visually) was pretty neat, with the reflection in the glass. I love the way you connected the religious meaning of Christmas with the thematic stuff in Neku & Josh's relationship. Neku's little "hey" was pretty funny. XD And that final dialogue exchange cracked me up. (Well, all the dialogue cracked me up, and even the serious parts made me smile.)

Flawless comic, I'm quite impressed! : D
KimYoshiko Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2012  Student Digital Artist
Oh wow, thank you! My feelings on this pairing are exactly the same as yours, and it always seems so hard to find work focusing on that snarky, slightly "tsundere" aspect. I'm glad that was able to come through :)
Yumeless Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2012
I love it. ^_^ The way you did this comic is just perfect. I always like when it is drawn and written like this. =D
