Neither One nor the Other by Midnight-Cobra Neither One nor the Other by Midnight-Cobra
So I was cruisin my gallery and I noticed that, aside from the pic "It's Chibi Time," I had absolutely no art of this particular character. Soooo...

Let me introduce you to Kira Avasauria.

Kira is from my graphic novel "The Dracustome." A story about a girl who essentially turns into a dragon
...
Which I guess means there just might be a bit more Transformational stuff on my site. But it'll be a lot more of a story and less of a fanservice.

ANYWAY

The story behind the Dracustome is as such:

Long in the past, Humans and Dragons lived peaceably together, side by side over many a century. However, the coming of the black plague changed all of that. When the Humans started dying out, they blamed the plague on the innocent Dragons (Mostly due to the fact that the Dragons were pagans, and thus, MUST have been witches). From that point on, the Humans began to hunt and kill every Dragon alive.
However, not all Dragons and Humans were at each other's throats. In fact there were two individuals who even fell in love. A Dragon male and a Human female had a child together. This child was known as the Median. Niether one nor the other. The Dragon in Human Forme.
And yet, despite some were not bitter, the dragons continued to be hunted. And shortly before being killed herself, The Dragon Elder created a mystical book called the Dracustome, that could only be opened by one of Dragon blood. The Elder sealed the power of the Dragons into this book and hid it far away
Soon all the dragons had been killed and all records of them destroyed. All the Dragons... save for one. The Median still lived. And his bloodline continues to this day, but the legacy of the great Dragons had been completely forgotten by even his ancestors.

The year is 2009, and 17 year old Kira Avasauria discovers a mysterious book...

A new way to be half-naked. The left human side is dressed and the right dragon side is not. Now how does it stay on? Tape or rope?

:laughing: Well, actually, the two sides of the picture are two different points in time. One is when she was human, the other is later after she's turned into a dragon. So... The clothes WERE on normally. They just aren't on anymore.

Why don't you make it two different pictures?

I felt it was a bit more interesting this way. A straight on head shot tends to be kinda boring without something in there sprucing it up, and I found the symmetry between her human self and dragon self to be a good way to present this.

Well, I don't know about that, but The Dracustome is one of the choices on my voting journal, so if you want to see it you can vote for it.

I guess the Kira from your graphic novel is far from the same as the Kira from Arcana Heart...

Ooh, interesting story. I can just hear all the dragon fangirls squeeing. XD

Seriously tho, I like it. It brings back memories of a fantasy world I created several years back with several intertwining stories. In this world there was only a small number of Dragons, which were created in the image of God, just like Man; each possessing power over a realm of nature. When the Dragon of Fire betrayed both Dragon and Man, killing both and taking a name for herself, trust between both races was shattered, causing both to hunt the other. The last two Dragon brothers, Stone and Sand, fled north and hid themselves, Stone inside of a mountain and Sand in human form. Sand fell in love with a human woman and fathered a daughter, who was kidnapped as a baby by the villain of one of my stories. Sand was blinded and maimed by the villain's monsters, but still quested for his daughter with the help of an Angel who acted as his eyes and hands for him. At length he rescued his daughter and she grew into a beautiful woman with powers similar to those of her father's. After Sand died of old age, his daughter Lyfe awakened her uncle, the Dragon of Stone, from his hibernation. Stone, still bearing a bitter enmity for Man, saw Lyfe as an abomination and a small but devastating war for the survival of Man broke out between them.

Sorry that went so long. Just felt like telling it. Plus I'm currently high on vicodin after having my wisdom teeth puled today. ^_____________________^

Thanks. Me too :XD:.

Wow... That is an incredible story you have there yourself my friend. You oughta do something with it. The only part I really didn't like was how Stone and Lyfe hated each other, but really. That's great, man.

'Scool. Glad you told it.

Well, Lyfe doesn't hate Stone, he hates her. Being the last true Dragon, he acts out of what he calls self-preservation, thinking he will only truly be safe when every last human is dead. He believes a Dragon and a human producing a child is the ultimate disgrace and Lyfe must be killed immediately for her own good. He's very cynical that way. Lyfe, being half-human and having a human family, wants to protect them but at the same time she hates having to fight against her own uncle.
