I love this story. When I first saw your Barrissoka artwork I saw a story in it that could have been right there in the Clone Wars series right under our noses. Thinking back to the episodes makes you wonder if it was. Your art also inspired me to start writing a short story about this very subject, but you beat me to it. Cudos. A excellent story and,as usual,artwork to match. Wonderful.
Now our hearts can heal thanks to your support and love for Ahsoka and Barriss's friendship. This story has repaired the damage and lighten the darkness Lucas and Filoni has caused since last February and March. Now Ahsoka and Barriss can be together without the Separatists, the Sith, or the Clone Wars interfering with them. Thank you Raikoh. We can rest more easy now. ;D
Words cannot describe how beautiful this is. I was surprisingly afraid that since the comic is short that the ending wouldn't be satisfying yet you managed to prove me wrong. And I'm very happy for it.
I really have to praise you yet again for the way you drew it. I know I've said this a lot of times but the way you gave detail to Barriss and Ahsoka is mind blowing. You captured her emotions perfectly.
I do not know why but Barriss looks strangely both physically and emotionally beautiful. The way her body is wet it makes her look angelic. And it's weird because she did very deplorable things. She's filled with so many sins and yet Ahsoka accepted her and forgave her. I guess Ahsoka saw in her her beauty.
I also really loved when she started to cry in Ahsoka's comfort. Finally letting all the sadness and pain she bottled out. And I also love when she apologized. Well more how she did it.
When she said "I never wished for the things that happened happen. But they did, and they forced me to do things I didn't wanted, especially to you! I was so afraid" my 1st thought that came to my mind was not that Palpatine was controlling her but that her fears, her anger, her despair motivated her to do those things. Or to be more specific the dark side.
And maybe the war it took a toll on Barriss's mind. she reminds me a lot of Luna(from the fist 2 episodes of FiM) and Fluttershy(putting your hoof down). They both bottled up their anger and resentment until it got the better of them.
And I really love the ending. It's so conclusive. That finally after all the hardships they both had to endure and the betrayals(both by the Jedi and the Sith) they had to suffer and stomach through they can finally be at peace and serenity(Well according to this fan comic).
I believe that this song might be fitting for it(even though I admit that the star stealing girl song from the Chrono Cross ost is fitting too). www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWZQqg…
A very thoughtful comment, and I thank you so much for it, it means so much for me to see many others enjoying my first ever try at making a serious comic. I'm no expert comic maker, but making this has given me tremendous new knowledge of what it is to make comics with a story.
And that's a great song you linked too, very beautiful.
This is so true to canon and well executed! According to Star Wars Insider, Ahsoka left the Jedi Order because she couldn't deny what Barriss said was true. I believed that Darth Sidious has plans for Barriss since he vaguely said, "Take her away". Also had a theory that she and Darth Maul would meet and become his new apprentice. Doubt that will happen since she knows Maul is a darksider and she claimed she planned the bombing to show that the Jedi and Republic only really believed in violence now. She wouldn't willingly serve the Seperatists or the Sith since they are pawns of the dark side just as the Republic and Jedi are. The website even says everything Barriss said is 100% true.
Another thing I thought would happen is Ventress, for her help in uncovering the truth behind the attack on the Temple, would be pardoned like Ahsoka promised and possibly even given an offer to rejoin(or officially join) the Order her Master, Ky Narec, once served.
This is how the clones wars should have ended. I love your comic I have just finished reading all of the story and congrats on such lovely ending. I would love to see this in colour,but that mite ruin the atmosphere of the comic. I would love to see you do a prequal on how ahsoka got her scar and who has been helping her(Lux,Assaji or someone else?) I wonder if you are making an orginal comic with all the great works of art that you have.(Far better than more comic makers)
