Saiunkoku-Ryuuki and Shuurei by yurecia Saiunkoku-Ryuuki and Shuurei by yurecia
Whoo, this sketch has been lying on my desktop for goodness knows how long, collecting dust. And I wanted to cel-shade just for fun. I know I haven't actually done any cel-shaded work... Just something about me likes to add in all sorts of weird colours.xD

Ryuuki is so sweet8DD And a bit a certain... ...Tamaki.xDDD!!! Oh boy, no guesses as to why I like him huh? Shuurei is just so blindT__T

i came across this looking for Ryuuki x Shuurei pics in google :3

i just have one thing to say, So I'm not the only one who thinks of Tamaki when i watch this anime XD

i think if Funimation ever redubs it or dubs the second season, they should totally get Vic to voice Ryuuki.. he'd be perfect!

Poor Ryuuki! If only there can be a way for Shuurei to continue her political career advancement and still be with Ryuuki.

I love the theme of this romance though. I love how they push each other to the best people that they can be.

This is really amazing! Nice job!

She can't? I'm quite sure she can marry Ryuuki and still remain in service...Lols. Kay maybe she needs to work her way up first before marrying him. Else it would seem like she got her position by underhanded means.

Haha, thank you very much for your comment=]

Shuurei probably could but in her mind, she can't. Marrying probably to her means giving up her life of politics. A consort/wife doesn't seem to have a lot of political power and she won't be settled just being a child-bearer to help Ryuuki and the kingdom out.

I think like you said, need to work her way up so that it doesn't seem like her power can be gotten by underhanded means. It would be cool that if she becomes so powerful and respected in the court that they beg her to marry Ryuuki. She doesn't want to take the easy way out and she won't be as respected or powerful if she did, even if the position of wife of the king becomes more powerful.

But in the end, all of that is probably just excuses for Shuurei. She is deeply afraid of committing to love and doesn't understand how she can balance her personal wishes for her own life with her dreams for Saiunkoku. I think she just needs to see that marrying Ryuuki would be the best for her and for Saiunkoku.
