Moment of peace by MisterMech Moment of peace by MisterMech
Originally a requested sketch. I chose to depict both BJ and Glory uninjured and without barding just to give them a pure, timeless moment.

Though I started this picture before Chapter 33 came out, since then, finishing it was quite the sad affair..... I'll miss drawing BJ






FOE > Kkat
PH > Somber

Why not? I mean, assuming Blackjack lives through this all, she's gonna live probably forever. So it would be nice if she had Glory by her side.

Either way, until Somber shows up the body, I'll believe there's hope.

tragedy/sacrifice...bla-bla-bla. In the last chapters there is some kind of bullshit. But i wanna see Glory alive.

Well, now that I think of it, this has some odd parallels to Chapter 33, what with Blackjack being under Glory's wing.

Call it cynicism, but I always felt like the Glory-Blackjack relationship is a necessity of the wasteland to preserve each others sanity and I may even be right. But when I look at this I don't feel that way. *Manly tear*

Chapter 33 was probably one of the saddest things I've ever read. it was really..really hard to read :<

I have a whole new appreciation for this picture. Thank you, this warms my heart a little

That it was. I can still recall just how depressed fans of the story were at the time the chapter first came out and how anxious we were for the next installment, many fully expecting the story to pick up with another character.

No problem. :)

I had never been so thankful for p21 as I was at that particular moment. I did like his character before that mind you, but not the same appreciation I do now. And even though I saw there were more chapters afterwards (plus fanart) I was legitimately worried as to what was going to happen.

Mech, as the founder of the FOE book binding group. If we ever pull off our crazy stunt and actually print FOE this image would indeed be good for the PH book which I hope to move onto next. With your permission of course.

what i recon is that what black imagen after nealy drowning at the start of the chapter was a little bit of hint of what was it going to happen in the next. with her friends doing all they can to save her. even giving sanguine blackjacks pipbuck using it to save her life before offring to save glory who exepts becoming what was described. then p-21 trys to get the ec-1101 back disipering off with it trying to fix every thing his own way aka what blackjack saw. but thats just a thery i hope the next chapter is not going to be the last.

Great pic Mech, I'm also in the hoping for a miracle camp, in a world where magic is real and deals with the stars could be made it just can't be the end.

Oh yea? I was tempted at doing comic that would depict Blackjack's afterlife kinda like the last episode of Neon Genesis Evangelions alternate reality scene. I don't know if you watched it or not but it was awesome XD

Well long story short after the end of the world the main character of the series creates their own alternate happy world where everything is normal. The way I thought I would do it is after Blackjack's final moment she wakes up in her own alternate world where the war never happen, She has a job as a royal guard still living at home with Gin Rummy, with Glory as her marefriend, P-21 as a teacher like he always wanted to be and so on and so forth with everyone just being happy.

If certain theories hold true, the Dealer may not be out of the picture yet.
As for Blackjack, I'm still holding onto fool's hope that somehow she'll pull through

I don't really know about any of the theories I have a pretty simple view so for the most part I lack the ability to create
them and I don't generally seek them out since I don't really want to spoil anything for my self. As for Blackjack I'm with you man this could be my simple view talking but I just can't see how it'll work with out her she was like the glue that held them all together.

If she's perma-dead, I got the silliest little idea of her taking care of some business in the afterlife, tracking down some of the ponies behind the war and giving them a swift kick in the flank. After that, chill in a river of pure whiskey and maybe even look up Scoodle. It plays out funny in my head at least.
