Welcome to Fan Art Tuesday!
For the last few weeks, I’ve shared comic book characters, and delved into my childhood. Now, moving forward there are new characters I like (even as an adult). So If I had access to all the comic book characters so far, who would be my favorite?
It’s hard to narrow down, but I do like 2 (again, big surprise). The first, I was fascinated with the moment I saw her. Her tortured power that is both a blessing, but mainly a curse.
Rogue. I love how she has such power, but can’t touch someone she loves.
Her favorite childhood memories revolved around creating vibrant characters for her friends, and then acting out their adventures. Inside her fantasy worlds of darkened forests, dragon-filled glades, and iced islands, nothing was banned. From the ethereal Elvin to the most maligned Vampires, all were welcome in her fictional realities, a stark contrast to her home, where the magical and mythical was forbidden.
Divorced and disillusioned of love and believing all the love songs and books exaggerated, she put aside her creativity for life. Many years past before characters, from the familiar to the freshly conceived, came to her again, but this time teasing at a new passion, the written word.
Gradually, her real life hero brought love and magic back into existence. During the time when her characters were getting reacquainted, the love of her life was showing her that true love never gives up and rekindles no matter how many times others attempt to extinguish it. Today, she is happily married with three children.
Andrea believes in the power of change and delighting in each moment. But most fervently, she believes in the magic of love and imagination again.
