I can't stop drawing these two D:
Anyhoodles, I guess to explain this piece is that I've always thought that deep down Reala and NiGHTS can't stand fighting each other, but they do because they both are fighting for something they can't give up -Reala for his control and NiGHTS for her freedom (also I'm well aware that they're both genderless and fully support the idea, but it's just how I see them)
So, I could see a scene between them where they battle each other so much they just end up exhausting themselves and letting out their true emotions about their reasons for fighting each other though never truly wanting to.
Man, I love how much dimension you could give NiGHTS and Reala, and their relationship.
NiGHTS and Reala most certainly don't belong to me, they belong to SEGA
