Happy Holidays from Kay, Jo, and Raphael~

So I’ve begun to notice that I’ve been neglecting one side of Raphael that is a little less obvious to other residents, and maybe even Jo herself. Yes he’s a lazybutt and yes he’s bratty, but he’s also very attached and protective.

Jo initially wanted nothing to do with the wild bug that followed her home one night, but after grudgingly quartering him for a couple of days she began to see him as a part of her life, and eventually a part of her family. Raphael is an intelligent bug and probably picked it up after some time that this weird monkey was actually going out of her way to make sure he was safe. He’s been grateful since; maybe not so grateful to get up and do something useful with his time, but enough to not take his new life for granted.

So this holiday season, after hearing much hype from Jo about buying everyone the perfect present, and casually disregarding it, he was unpleasantly surprised to find that - guess what! Christmas is in less than ten days.
So while Jo was furiously wrapping presents, Raphael decided to go out of his way to hand/stub-leg make a gift for her. I don't think she'll mind the mess <3

Pokemon and Monferno belong to Nintendo.

Aww, that's so sweet!

Hehe, too bad Lockjaw can't do something like this for Wake. xD

Lockjaw's a naughty little (hehe, "little" xD) boy.

^^ Thanks! I'm really so happy you think so~
It's all a matter of character in the end ^^ I think that just having Lockjaw around for the holidays would make Wake really happy :3 even if he did eat all the food.

This is so cute, yet it makes me sad somehow. I think the thought and how it's presented gives me a warm yet sad feeling all at once. ;w;

Did you do this entire thing digitally? :iconilikeitplz:

Aww :hug: thanks! And sad? Really? I guess I never saw it like that ^^; can you explain please?

Yeah! I decided to work on my digital stuff more so this ended up happening~

Well, I guess not exactly sad, but more of a precious feeling. Sorry, I'm bad at explaining things. With all the effort put into the gift that Raphael created and the mess, then Jo embracing Raphael. It's kinda like a movie scene between a mother and a child. or that's how I see it... :icontomoyoplz:

Ah :nod: no, that makes sense ^^ I wanted you to explain because I kinda got what you were saying but didn't quite know what exactly you were thinking ^^; but thanks! I was kind of hoping it would come off that way~

The retyped Yanmega (not the gijinka) over here :meow:
He acts all tough and that, but he does have a soft spot for Vega :meow:

XD Aww, how cuuute
And how similar, actually xD I'm a bit surprised. I bet that Errai at least isn't a total lazybutt though :XD:

Actually, you'd be surprised! He's quite strange. One moment he'll be chasing the butterfree in this app here, ([link]) and the next moment he'll be sitting on the couch and staring at someone with those souless eyes of his.

? Really? Well either ways he does something, which is always better than nothing.
But oh lord an OOC meeting of these two... Would be interesting, to say the least. Or maybe uninteresting. I can't tell right now

dizzyrin Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yes, that's true. He annoys Veag a whole lot though. Especially since they can communicate with each other and no one else knows what they're talking about. Thus, situations like this happen ([link])

It would be quite interesting... I can't tell what would happen, really!

XD oh dear Errai. What is it about annoying owners that pet bugs seem to annoy so much?
Well I predict Errai would try to get Raphael to move, and then not succeed, and then they would happily share tips on how to annoy their owners :3
