Last Straw by Rider4Z
Last Straw
Yeah i kinda jumped on the bandwagon here. This scene was definitely a long time coming - seeing Vegeta react protectively over Bulma. This rare moment reminded me of how he reacted when Trunks from the future was killed by Cell. As much as he tries to hide or ignore sentimentality you really only can push the proud prince so far. Humiliating him is one thing, but causing harm to his family crosses the line no matter who you are.

The Future of Trunks-VOL.I-XII [PDF Read File] by Rider4Z

I decided I should make a piece for breaking 50,000 page views. Last time I did something commemorative like this was at 10,000 and I made a collage of everyone at the festival. I considered making one of the second festival but thought I should do something a bit more special or vulnerable.

In developing The Future of Trunks I did my best to keep in mind Toriyama's original style and themes of action, fun, and a touch of drama. Any and all romance in the Dragonball universe, while it does exist, is very limited and essentially skipped over. That's just Toriyama's design. While I could easily change a few moments in The Future of Trunks to make Trunks' and Celari's bond remain strictly a friendship, another element Toriyama created in the DB universe is the continuing of the next generation. Trunks' future lies in his legacy - any children he may have, just like he is Vegeta's legacy. (And I'm gonna pull in some random chick during a time skip to take care of that. That wouldn't satisfy me.)

I've purposefully limited myself on posting intimate pictures like this because I want to keep as true to Toriyama's world as possible. But the scene exists either way and most of you are probably like me and squee over pictures like this anyway. So this is a treat for you and me for breaking 50,000 page views. :)

Volume XI: Chapter V

.... Celari panted hunched over on her knees. She took a deep breath and wiped the sweat from her brow and then looked up to the Kai who didn’t even return her gaze. She stared anxiously, but then turned her eyes to Trunks. She struggled to her feet and hobbled her way up. Her saiyan suit was left in shambles and she was weak by her endeavor, but forced herself to him.

     The Kai leaned himself against the far wall and put his hand to his chin, watching.

     Celari didn’t say anything when she reached Trunks. She grabbed onto the bindings that held his arms to the wall and pulled. Sharp pain crippled her hands almost immediately and she had to let go. She squeezed them together trying to counteract the numbness.

     “Such a fool,” the Kai spoke condescending.

     Celari looked up to Trunks, haunted by the Kai’s words and the horrifying imagery she just witnessed. “Don’t give in to him…” she pleaded as he kept his head down. “Trunks, look at me… Don’t let him do this to you.” She placed her fingers under his jaw and tilted his head up.

     Her eyes widened as she saw streams of tears falling down his face. Trunks opened his eyes but kept them low. “It hurts so much…”

     “I know it does… but you’ve got to keep fighting it,” she encouraged him.

     “I can’t…”

    “Yes, you can. Come on, you’re the toughest person I’ve ever known,” Celari grew desperate and wiped his tears with her thumbs.

    “No…” he hesitated, “…I’m not as strong as you are.”

    She squinted ever so slightly and changed up her strategy. “…Then let me help you,” she pleaded. “Let me make you happy.”

    Her words lingered in the air for a moment, then Trunks raised his eyes to her.

    "…Trunks, please…” she continued with mourning and despair. “…Don’t choose the Kai, choose me. Let me be the one to take away your pai—”

    Before she could finish Trunks pulled forward and sealed his lips over her mouth. He kissed her affectionately having reached his breaking point.

    Celari was surprised and her hands hung in the air not knowing what to do with themselves, but found their way behind his head as she accepted his kiss.

    The people of earth stared in awe viewing them in the aurora lights. Many looked on with tears in their eyes.

    Ion’s fists clenched tightly seeing Celari’s body pressed up against his rival in their passionate embrace. He closed his eyes and dropped his head, then pressed his forehead into the palm of his hand. “…I knew it,” he whispered forcefully through his clenched teeth.

    Olivo noticed the distress in Ion’s body language. Then he turned his eyes back to the screen.

    Celari’s hands moved to Trunks’ face and their kiss slowly ended. His eyes remained closed as he exhaled. He then gritted his teeth.

    Celari noticed Trunks’ energy begin to swell. She lowered her hands and leaned away. “Trunks?” He pulled his head up groaning, then clenched his muscles and flared in power. Celari jumped back and raised an arm over her eyes shielding them from the wind. Trunks grunted escalating in strength, until finally the seams ripped from his bindings and he pulled his arms free from the wall. Celari’s eyes shot open wide. Trunks dropped to the floor on his hands and knees with a relieved roar.

    The entire world stared at Trunks’ image having freed himself, and erupted into cheers and applause.

    “Trunks!...” Celari crouched down to him quickly. She pulled his singed gloves off his trembling hands and massaged pressure into his wrists. “How did you do that?” she asked him, still in shock.

    Trunks’ head was still low as he groaned. “I don’t know… it just…” he lifted his eyes to her, “…didn’t hurt anymore.”

    Celari gazed back into his eyes, both perplexed and grateful.

    Ion looked at them both. He then remembered words he spoke earlier, ‘Tell me anyone else you know that can take away your pain in a single instant.’ Ion made a slight gasp.

…it just… didn’t hurt anymore.

    Ion’s eyes opened wide and lost focus. He turned away from the screens and dropped down to his knees in realization. “That’s what…”

   “That’s why I don’t love you anymore, Ion. I’m not worth the pain to you.”

   “That’s… what Celari meant…” Ion felt his heart drop into his stomach. “I put all my trust in the Kai over her…!” Ion clutched his hand over his heart. “Why didn’t I see that?”

   Olivo kept his eyes on Ion, then looked back up at the screens, furrowed his eyebrows and turned towards the exit.

....

This is one of my favorite scenes in The Future of Trunks. It has more than one element happening if you pay close attention. The first and obvious one being Trunks finally admitting he has deeper feelings for Celari than he dared to admit even to himself. Another is Celari not wanting to be brushed aside by someone she cared for, for some kind of drug - and Trunks accepts her love in order to relieve his pain from being tortured by his memories instead of using a narcotic. And finally, Ion learns essentially why Celari stopped loving him. Knowing it was entirely his fault, he's able to finally let her go and place the blame on himself.

I hope you guys enjoy, and thank you so much for the support. And to all my new readers as well! :)

A little mad by Rider4Z
A little mad
Best movie I've seen in a long time was Fury Road. Such a great theater experience, I ended up seeing it 3 times. I would have seen it more but it stopped playing at my local theater :( so bummed. I've never seen the original Mad Max(s) and i don't really have an interest to.

I love Tom Hardy's execution. If you haven't seen Fury Road, Max's character is slightly insane (hence the title "Mad Max") because of the post-apocalyptic world he now survives in. So his character in turn is very animalistic. Everything he does is based on instinct and he speaks very few words in the entire film. Therefore, all his acting is done in his facial expressions and grunts. He deserves an oscar nom in my opinion for his facial expressions alone.

Hey all, from time to time I update what I've written. I don't have an editor so I try to go back and catch mistakes, and even rework or reword some stuff that doesn't sit well with me anymore. Nothing too major ever changes, it's usually the little things that ended up meaning a lot that I go over and touch up.

If you're in the middle of reading, please update your file with the current one. And if you've read thru it already, I ask that you replace your copy with this one, just in case you choose to re-read again :)

Thanks a lot for all your input and comments, both on this and on my artwork. They really mean a lot to me :heart:

Hi! First of all I'd just like to say that your art interpretation of DBZ is really awesome, and that in itself makes whatever you draw your own.

Second of all, Celari. Great name! I named my female saiyan character that in Xenoverse.

If you'd ever, EVER be interested in doing a colab or exchange a few ideas. Omg I'd be so happy.
I've been trying to think of a way of how Saiyans could exist beyond the whole destruction of planet Vegeta and shit and a lot of fans go so angsty when you mention, "But there could be mor-"

Anyway sorry if this is a bit much. IT's just great to finally find an artist and a person who appeals to me (In the subject of DBZ).

I did read through most of it, but I just got back home from overseas so I should probably get back into it.

My idea of a collab would be that you draw and we both work on a story. But if that doesn't appeal to you then no worries! :D
If anything I'd like to see you draw my personal DBZ character in your style. Thats what would really make my day.
I'll scan the picture I drew sometime.

Anyway keep up the great work!

Your Future of Trunks looks very interesting.  I'd very much like to read it!  Mirai Trunks is also my favorite DBZ Character.  I once wrote a fanfiction called "Future of Hope" about his future.  I've long since lost it, though.  

I also like the Group, NightWish.  My favorite song of theirs is "Wish I Had an Angel."

I'd love to be friends. :) lets be friends.

Wow!  I've never hear that one before.  I'm listening to it now.  It's pretty awesome!  :XD:

And Maybe I didn't look hard enough, but I couldn't find where the story was.  Just the artwork.
