The New Year teaser image for Vampire Knight is MIND BLOWING!! *_____*
I think this is maybe my favorite images of the trio EVER. T___T Or at least one of my favorites. It’s SO RARE for them to actually look happy, to be together ALL THREE smiling!! And no fighting, no sad looks, no pushing one or the other away… just together, happy, safe, having Yuuki nicely between them/in their arms, everything so perfect and happy…. I want this for them so much!! T_____T
The powerful meaning behind what they are doing in the pic, considering the Japanese tradition is also so wonderful. T^T
The things in the tree branches here look like ribbons (possibly for the pretty effect, and to stay in with the European imagery of the series rather than look more paper-like), but this is the teaser pic for LaLa New Year issue (the January issue is New Year issue in Japan, and comes out in November, because Japanese magazines are like that XD;)
In Japan, there’s the tradition of the first temple visit of the New Year, the Hatsumoude, when you go out in the cold wearing pretty clothes (well, especially the girls, usually kimono stuff), visit the temple, pray for the New Year etc., and get your fortunes, if you’re into that. (It’s written on a paper thingie, which you can tie).
If your fortune predicts bad fate for you, you take it and tie it to the tree branches to ward off the tragedy from your path… EXACTLY like they are doing in that image.
All three of them, smiling happily standing together, tying to the tree the tragedies that fate has laid on their path… OMG. T^T *is so moved by that pic*
This image is my ideal VK ending. I wish the series can end as beautiful and hopeful as this pic is, with the three of them smiling, close to each other, happy, tying away the tragedies of their lives and starting anew, finally safe and happy…. T___T
OHGODINEEDFANFICTIONABOUTTHISMORETHANINEEDTOBREATHE. T_____T (Although if the happy ending happens in canon it’s so much better, but meanwhile I’d love it if there was so much fanfiction with them…. T^T)
As soon as I have enough time, you can expect me to fanart this stuff like there’s no tomorrow. XD XD
