This One-Shot is all about Fire Emblem. I mostly know this franchise through Smash Bros., but luckily for me there was a heavy overlap between the characters used here and those who’ve appeared in Smash. Apparently the Subscriber who submitted this script had intended for the Robin who appeared to be the male version, but they forgot to specify in the script and I’d already finished the comic before I knew. We’ve seen male Robin before in an older OS, anyway, so it’s nice to get the female side here I think.
Flayn of Fire Emblem: Three Houses won the NHML raffle this month. I’ve never played this game, but browsing through her Wikia page didn’t really do much to enlighten me on what would be a fun concept for her. So, I went the default route and paired her with the game’s protagonist, Byleth. I’ve never played Fire Emblem, but I do play Smash, and when I play as Byleth I always choose the female version, so that’s what I went with here.
With this post, NHML nominations for the month of June are now open. For those who don’t know, I’ll run down the rules real quick. Nominations are limited to one per person. You can nominate any female character you want, provided I have not drawn her within the past calendar year (though I prefer characters I’ve never drawn, period). Previous NHML winners are not eligible for a second time. Nominees must also not be from the same franchise as this month’s winner, Fire Emblem. If you violate any of those rules, I’ll let you know, and you can nominate someone else. I know it can be hard to keep track of these things. You may nominate by either commenting in the cBox, commenting on this post, or emailing me (Nearphotison2010@yahoo.com). I’ll compile a list of the nominees in the sidebar of this site, and then on June 1st I will use a randomizer to select the winning character who I will proceed to draw sometime that month. I look forward to seeing who you all nominate this time around!
