[FLASHBACK] Kelly & Sparkle with Swords

After I scanned the Kerii-hime image, I saw this other one of Kelly hold what appeared to be a sword on the page before it. Since it was Kelly, I knew I would have to scan it for a flashback. When I actually looked the image…

OH MY GOSH. WHAT THE HECK.

WHY.

WHAT.

WHY ARE THEY HOLDING SWORDS. Okay, Kelly holding a sword would have been slightly acceptable to me. I know I had a sword obsession for a while until I realized I totally sucked at using a sword, so giving a fan character somewhat inspired by myself would make sense (same reason why Samantha has one). But SPARKLE.

SPARKLE, HER PIKACHU, HAS ONE.

Okay, Kelly’s pose, while it looks silly – like, what is her left leg doing? Is she suppose to be stepping back on it or is it up in the air? – SPARKLE JUST LOOKS HILARIOUS. Sure, it’s HILARIOUSLY cute, but she looks so hilariously cute. Like holyshiznit it’s so hilariously cute that I want to hug Sparkle.

And I want to know why Sparkle is holding a sword.

I actually want to know why they’re both holding swords, but especially Sparkle.

This is the first time I DIDN’T want to draw a flashback image. It’s just too weird unless like, I was doing some alternate universe version of Kelly.

What do you people think of it?
