Hello Kratos in that sexy pose and in that sexy Judgement costume ♥
I wanted to draw everyone in Symphonia destroying their hated food, but it seems that there are some who don’t even have a hated food, or I wasn’t looking hard enough.
Anyway, Kratos vs tomato
Lloyd might go crazy like Ziggy did? No, because he isn’t lonely. And he’s probably scared that Dirk might punch him again.
okay. i am gonna rant a bit because this whole sequence DESTROYS ME and HITS ME REAL HARD and i. just. have been staring at the past two photosets i just reblogged and this one and i. can’t.
I HAVE THINGS TO SAY ABOUT THIS OKAY be warned it will probably be (incoherent and) long
i will never. never. not be angry with Kratos for leaving. nope. never. I LOVE HIM WITH ALL MY HEART which is why THIS DRIVES ME ANGRY LIKE WHOA. no, Kratos, you didn’t HAVE TO go with Derris Kharlan to throw all the Cruxis Crystals to space. you didn’t have to. you felt like it was your obligation because you had done so. so much that you felt it was unbearable to live along all these people you betrayed, you hurt, the memories of those you helped die, everything. it was too much for you. it was too much guilt. you didn’t deserve it. you didn’t deserve to have a normal life, you deserved to be isolated and go away to do this ‘mission of yours’ (spoilers for DotNW: apparently FOREVER since Derris Kharlan wouldn’t ever get close to this planet ever again, THANK YOU SO MUCH GAME for turning this into an even more horrible thing!!)
except you didn’t have to. you didn’t have to. you didn’t HAVE TO go away, not after everything you had all been through, ESPECIALLY because of that. you just didn’t stop and look at your son, really look and think what he would like or want. you just didn’t. you assumed he wouldn’t want you near him any more. you assumed he was too ashamed of you. you assumed he couldn’t possibly want to share the rest of his life with his biological father whom he had barely get to know, whom he had just barely got to share a couple of moments with—battles notwithstanding. he couldn’t possibly want to have fun with his father, smile with his father, have the opportunity to actually love his father and hear of his mother and get to know them both better and better with each day. you just assumed you didn’t deserve any of this—that Lloyd didn’t deserve any of this, you just took all of this away from him and you left. and you left because it was easier that way, it was easier to think that you deserved eternal isolation to atone for your sins rather than actually face all of those you had hurt once or twice or more and live with them each day and help make this world better alongside your son, like he had always dreamed of, like he wad always wanted to.
and Lloyd of course, bless his heart, bless his soul, never even holds it against him, he never holds anything against him, he just understands and nods and accepts and says goodbye, even though I’m sure he would’ve loved to have his father with him, here, but he knows why kratos is saying this, he knows why he feels he must do this and even if he doesn’t actually want him to go, he just lets him because Lloyd is a person who respects other people’s wishes
and it’s okay, he says, though it isn’t really okay at all, but it is okay because he never blamed kratos for all this mess they found themselves in. sure, Kratos betrayed them time and time again and it was hard and he had lied to him about who he was (and then about being his father) but it was a lot more complicated than that, and kratos was caught in all his lies as well, and it had all gone wrong without him wanting to, and Lloyd knew his father, this father who trained him, this father who helped him, this father who protected him in his own way, and he knows he would’ve never wanted to get him involved in any of this if he had had any say in it
and this scene. lloyd talking to his mom. explaining to her that dad had left (again). wondering if letting him go was actually the right choice. he didn’t want to force him to stay if he didn’t want to, but he really. really would’ve liked him to stay. so he asks his mother, that mother who knew kratos better than any of them, he asks if it was okay to let him go. and he says he’s okay, it’s okay, because he has Dirk, because he’s not alone, because he has all these people who love him and he loves them so much as well and he has things to do and there’s no time to feel sad about any of this and he understands. no, he wouldn’t have wanted to go with kratos (who would ever) but he understands why kratos felt he had to do this, just like he knows he has things to do of his own. and he does have the very best father he could ask for (BLESS THE UNIVERSE FOR DADDY DIRK) so he just shakes all these thoughts aside, leaves kratos sword resting by anna’s side (as it should be) and goes of to continue trying to make this world better, one good action at a time.
and i’m sorry, and you could try to tell me how Kratos Really Did Have To Go With Derris-Kharlan because of reasons, but i’m not really going to listen because for me that shouldn’t have even been a choice. because in a way, Lloyd leaving Kratos’s sword by Anna’s grave is almost like symbolizing his death, because Martel know when he would ever be able to see his father again. kratos left because he felt it was his duty to do these things, but what about the duty with his son, what about him, why couldn’t you stop and think about those whom you left behind, kratos, why.
(WHICH IS WHY I REFUSE TO ACCEPT CANON AS CANON and believe that the Doctor stumbled into Derris-Kharlan one day and then he helped Kratos get back to this planet AND THEN HAPPY THINGS HAPPENED BECAUSE YES. the end)
