Tea House Moon by Trainwrekcomics Tea House Moon by Trainwrekcomics
OK, so it's NOT perfect in every little way. Many will find it laughable, and I know I won't win any converts over to my camp.

Yet I don't care.

It's still the first in a series of magnum opuses that I have planned.

My reasons for this are two-fold. First, I am a Jon TalbainXHsien-Ko supporter, perhaps the only one in existence. My reasons for pairing them are that, personality-wise, the two are very similar to one another, as well as they have similar goals and interests, which is important for any relationship. Now I understand that many darkshippers feel that "oMG! their both were-critters and are compleet opposites!!111soKawa!!!111X3" when it comes to Jon and Felicia, but consider these points, if you will;

Firstly, would Jon REALLY be happy being cooped up in a huge mansion all the time while Felicia's out doing her thing? Also, would Felicia really give up on her goal of making EVERYONE happy just to make ONE person happy?
Also, suppose she decides Jon needs to get used to people, plus her agent says she needs to be seen whith her "hubby" on the red carpet for publicity? And suppose that, at that event, the full moon had come put, and Jon transformed and attacked and killed most everyone there? How would Felicia be able to recover her career after that? Would it really help people and darkstalkers to get along after such an event?

So you see, Jon and Felicia just wouldn't work out, at least from a logical standpoint, and that's why they can only be friends. They're just too different, personality and interest-wise, to form anything more than that.

Having said that, another reason I did this was that I've seen a lot of shipping art, but very little of it can really be called art. at least from a certain standpoint, namely, if art is supposed to be symbolic, then where is the symbolism in shipping art? So I decided that I would at least try to make this piece symbolic. If you notice all around the border are chinese symbols for love and marriage and long lasting relationships. In fact, the chinese cuneiform at the bottom left is actually the symbol for "Love".

So here it is. Love it or hate it, laugh at it, but at least consider it and the relationship depicted within as viable.

I'll get better. Trust me.

Cool story bro. But generally, I'd like to see how it'd play out between Jon and Fel. Cuz, the way you described why Jon + Fel won't work, by itself is actually the base of a interesting story already (even if they broke up its still interesting!). I have no qualms about Jon + HK (hey, either way, Jon still gets a hot chickXD) but the HK paring...erm...I just think it lacks something that stands out. 'Sides, in Jon's ending he is saddled with 2 kids (adopted humans), while HK (the sisters) gets reincarnated into humans( wtf???)...

Glad to know that you, at the very least, are tolerant of my pairing! As to why I keep picking it, it mostly has to do with, for the most part, how actual relationships work out. True, there are always exceptions to the rule, but Jon and Hsien-Ko still have a bit more in common than does Jon and Felicia do, as my reasons on this pic show. If you REALLY want to get technical, I don't think Jon would want to wind up with anyone, and I honestly think he'd be a lot more torn up inside knowing that his curse lives on in his own beloved offspring or is making the life of his loved ones a living hell.

...whats the reasons on this pic shows? I thought its just a drawing? Anyway, I'm a little more partial to J + F cuz I think the darkstalker who would most likely try to know Jon better would be Fel:P Like, even if Jon doesn't want it, Felicia would be the annoying kind to drop in, that sort of thing:P

No, no, no I did not mean on the pic itself, the description below the pic is the one that has the reasons I ship JonXHsien-Ko. The pic itself is actually different Chinese symbols for love/marriage, and the whole thing was inspired by this pairing and Enya's "Tea-House Moon".

I get what you mean, and while I understand and, for the most part, tolerate your opinion and choices, but her annoying him is just one of the reasons I DON'T ship Jon and Felicia. I also feel that their whole relationship would, apparently, be based on co-dependency, and that is pretty much poison to any relationship.

Oooohh, k i get it now:D, but yea, I'd still think that things could go with the Jon + Fel thing (personal choice). Though...have you considered writing fanfics? Based on what you think, I'm pretty sure you could conjure a great story or 2:)

Glad that's all setled! And yes, believe it or not, I have considered writing fanfics, but my perfectionism keeps getting in the way.

Pfft, just post them on fanfiction, have you seen the fanfics posted there? Spelling errors don't seem to stop anybody from writing awesome fics.

Ummmmmm, thanks? I...I seriously don't know how to answer this anymore...

Oh, just got done googling that pic you linked me to. Turns out it's just Ono trying to get support for a new Darkstalkers game. From what I read, Capcom's official statement is that "there is no new Darkstalkers game". I also learned from said article(s) that Japan isn't interested in a new DS game. Hell, after what they've been through this year, I wouldn't blame them.

Hey dude, I'm gonna post a Darkstalkers couples pic that features JonXHsien-Ko, amongst others. I don't know if you're even still into this, since I looked into your favorites. I should be completing it tomorrow.

Actually, I may have once again overestimated my capabilities. I still have to do some background work and shading, so it may not get done till tomorrow. But rest assured, IT WILL GET DONE.

The theme of the drawing, and the setting is very nice, beautiful even. My only complaint is that they look kinda funny (not quite like their officiall pictures).

Thank you for your comment! Yeah, I draw in my own style, which is based more on the American style of comics rather than manga or anime. I'm glad you like the rest of it though. It makes me feel so much better knowing some people like it!

How could I not like it? The setting is just so romantic, and I picture those two looking up at the moon and the stars, all comfortable in each others arms. As a fan of the coupling, I could almost wish that was official artwork.

Holy Crap! You like this pairing too? That's great! And I'm glad you enjoyed it so much! No, wait. I'm BEYOND glad. New words will have to be invented to describe the feelings of joy I am now experiencing!

Consider yourself added to my buddylist!

Sorry. I tend to get like that because...well...it fells like sometimes I'm the ONLY JonXHsien-Ko fan around. It's tough being alone in a fandom.

I did read your fanfics. While I DO like the fact that you treat them as friends, your writing a dialogue are a little more realistic than most other fanfics,and you keep them relativly close to their actual personalities (as opposed to 99.9% of the fandom), overall your fics, at least the one's I've read, could use a little improvement. Bear in mind, I'm not doing this to hurt you or cut you down, just think of it like constructive criticism. Y'know, like when you told me Jon and Hsien-Ko could look more like their official art rather than my own style. Besides, I tend to read stuff like Dracula and H.P. Lovecraft as opposed to fanfics, so hey.

C'mon, I doubt you're THAT bad at art. I've seen some stuff on this site that's WAY worse!

Oh...OK. Nooooo, it's Jon and Hsien-Ko.

Just why do you like JonXFelicia in the first place? I'm just curious, is all?
