A strong hand pulling his own into a forceful embrace. A white flash of steel and a cracking noise, like a stomp. A drilling pain, like a thunderstrike across the chest, and flowing ash brown hair touching the cheek soft as feathers.
Vision blurring before fading to a dark red.
And a dark voice huskily whispering in the ear:
"You and I... are too similar for both to exist in this world."
He gagged and coughed, blood dripping from the mouth and trailing down the chin. His hands clutching around his attacker's chest, he gargled one last time the name of the one person in front of him.
Then his vision went dull, pearl grey eyes going blank, and he collapsed, falling right into the other's strong and merciless arms. Caeles tightened his grasp on the sword, staring at the blade that was now spiking from the shorter person's back, dripping with thick, reddish blood. Letting go of the numb fingers, he closed his left arm around him, leaning back and pulling on the weapon, the corpse lifelessly falling down to his knees, then collapsing completely to his side, blood splashing over Caeles's face and coat, hair spreading over the floor like a waterfall. Caeles kept numbly staring at the brown hair, so long it was now wrapping around his own ankles like thin snakes, then at the bloodied sword he simply dropped on the floor. Kling klang.
He went down on his knees,some more blood staining his coat, and approached a hand to the pale dead face, purple lips slightly opened in shock and pearl grey, dull blinded eyes staring in the blank. He closed them with a single hand gesture, cold and simply, then grabbed the sword and folded it back in its sheath, rising to his feet again. The muffled noises of the war that was to come outside were already reaching the empty room, and Caeles turned his back, walking away to his final battle and whispering to the one who couldn't hear him anymore.
"Soon, I'll see you again in hell... Ciel."Dafuq did I just wriiiiiite!?
Finally a glorious demo for Ciel's 4VCV-VC bank, featuring the awesome Caeles! : [link]
The PV in itself is in monochrome/lineart style, but I thought I'd just color this frame and post it here. (/UvU)/
So, before you all go WELPDAFUQ ARE THEY DOING:
_Meet Ciel (long hair) and Caeles (swordsman): both UTAUloids, Ciel is a Genderless
(I insist that they're not female, even though the bank used here is the female one) live flesh blind automaton aged around 250 years old, and Caeles is a male 38-ish years old former soldier whose voicebank will give you eargasms.
In the PV, there's that one solo performed by the second singer, that goes by: "You came to me and said 'try a smile?' yet hypocrite that I was, I annoyingly stabbed at you..."
And being the fangirl I am, I immediately proceeded to drawing Caeles stabbing Ciel. (note that their fingers are entwined because he held his hand and pulled him in for the stab) I suck BUCKETS at drawing blood on SAI,but I'm rather glad on how the hair came out!
If I was to guess out a story for the song for them both though... Caeles and Ciel used to be friends, then turned their backs to each other because of pride and social differences, Caeles being a soldier and Ciel a noble. Ciel tried coming back friendly to Caeles, who killed him out of hypocritical honour and then threw himself into the upcoming chaotic war to be killed. I always imagined that in the end of the song, both were reunited and forgive themselves upon realizing their mistakes, then finally manage to be friends again.
Do go watch the mini PV and SteelEmissary's works for they are super awesome. uwu(And btw, I came up with a name for that pairing: the Heavenly Pair.
Because both "Caeles" and "Ciel" are derivatives (in latin and french language) for the word CAELUM, which means "heavens". uvu)
And no mature content on this because even if there's blood it's still very soft... Me stabsta!
