and totally forgot its existence...
"WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT FROM ME?!" anti screamed at him tears threatening to fall
"What...more? WHAT HAVE YOU GIVEN ME!?" dark said angrily confused as he tried to squirm out of antis grip
"Youve taken so much from me dark."
"WHAT HAVE I TAKEN?!"
Anti smiled. it was sadistic and vile and his grip tightened. his claws dug into darks skin as blood stained the concrete below them
"my eye," anti paused waiting for a reaction after gaining none he continues", My sanity, my untouched neck," He paused once more. Dark has stopped struggling. ", My wings." He finished. There was one more thing though. both him and dark knew what it was.
Anti was snapped out of his haze .
"Say it. I know you want to say more."
His claws tightened.
He picked dark up and slammed him agianst the wall.
Anti laughed with all of his might as the tears came down. they were ones of sadness mixed with anger.
Dark stopped. His mouth opened but no sound came out.
"We were going to be together for ever... right?"
He gained no response
"you and i saw that place (the white temples pic) and we wanted to be together in it. we wanted to rule that place together. but you tore my wings off. betrayed me. and left me there."
He voice got shaky as his hands begun to loosen. he was shaking.
"why didnt you kill me?"
Darks voice was quiet and broken as he said those words.
anti looked up and released him.
"Because... your still my brother. i still care for you..some what."
With that he stepped back and turned into his shadow and disappeared
Dark collapsed to his knees still shaking.
"I'm sorry, I'm so sorry."
Anti went for Dark.
"Hey, there big fella..."
The form Anti had taken on, wasn't pleasant. His voice came out echoey and taunting. His body dripped black, shadowy essence. His legs weren't existent. They vanished into a smoky tail. A familiar look he has seen in his dreams a lot.
"What's a strong guy like you..." Anti said as he poked Dark in the chest "Doin' sittin' here, cryin' like a big ol' baby?"
Anti also made his voice more slang. Dropping G's and other letters that could be finished with.
"N-nothing. I just broke my arm." Said Dark, rather coldly.
"Hmmm, well then. How bout' I fix it for ya', eh? Doesn' look too bad. Right chum?"
Dark huffed. Anti could barely recognize himself right now so, he had little worry that Dark would recognize him. This was one of Antis better shows.
"I'll take that, as a yes, pal?"
Dark looked at Anti coldly and replied
"We are NOT friends"
Anti looked at Darks arm, it was indeed broken. And badly. An advantage.
"Eheheheh. Oh my, well chum. This is quite the break there. I stand correc' mysef' didn' I?"
Dark looked at Anti like he was an idiot.Now time shed light.
Anti grabbed Darks, broken arm.He squeezed it as tightly as he could. Dark let out a choked cry.
"You know, your' lot like yer' green-haired friend."
Dark let out another cry and Anti twisted his arm slightly.
"You'r Bods' are weak. But your a lot stronger, physically, I mean"
Dark looked at the creature. But only saw a hole where the eyes would be.
"What.. do you mean? Anti? Heh.."Dark grimaced." He's not my friend."
The creature gave a wicked smile.
"Oh, righty-o. You mean after you made em' suffer."
Dark growled at the creature.
"I killed him. I don't know how he's alive, but I did."
The creature gave a wicked laugh.
Dark was silent. He didn't know who this creature was, but he finally let go of his arm. And was floating around casually.
"you heard me"
"I know, but I don't understand..."
The creature gave out a huff
"after you ripped off yer' bros' wings... And relieved em' of his head and eye. I came into play. I brought em' back to life, but couldn't get rid of the marks, oh noe's I couldn'. Right after he stood up and saw me, he attacked me. Good practice for those nice claws I gave em'. mhm sure was. He screamed at me to go away, and let em' die." The creature smiled sadly. "Yer friend really doesn;t want to be here. Just by bringing em' back he lost most of his mind. an' surprisingly..." The creature looked at Dark and got a scum face on.
"He went to heaven."
(oml dude if you want me to hide this i will I got so much into it,it wasn't supposed to be this long jesus fecking Christ)
Dark stared in shock at the thing that was before him
"Man we betta get you some hearin' aids" he chuckled
Dark was overcome with rage. As he stood up he relied on the wall to keep him stable
"STOP ACTING LIKE THIS IS JUST A JOKE! YOU JUST TOLD ME AFTER WHAT I DID YOI MANGED TO KEEP HIM ALIVE AND YOU TOLD ME HE WENT TO HEAVEN. YOU CANT DO THAT TO ME! HOW'D YOU EVEN KNOW WHERE HE WENT?!"
Dark said as he huffed and stood straighter. Anti was now feeling uneasy. Mabye he took this too far. He slightly smiled and chuckled.
"WHAT ARE YOU LAUGHING ABOUT?!" dark screamed as he walked closer. Well more like limped since he was still using the Ally's wall for support. The creature anti had turned into backed up before growing taller. Dark stopped in his tracks. " Yup. I have my ways. And when I asked yer bro why'd he wanta die 'e said 'cause he couldn't stand the thought of you hatin im "
At this point dark had collapsed on to his knees. And was muttering something.he started to shake and his once vibrantly pink wings were dull and a grayish pinkish color. Anti floated down and listen to what he was saying.
"I don't. Yes you do. I swear I don't. Then why did you do it dark? Huh? Why'd you do it?" It seemed like dark was having a conversation with himself. At this point he started crying again and he sadisticly smiled as he continued to speak to himself. He began sobbing heavly
"Oi mister Water works Willie you alright?"
Dark looked up and smiled. It was very off settling.
"As great as I've ever been." He paused scanning the creature for a second
Anti was shocked. He knew that smile because he had that smile on his face before.
"Alaster..? How?" Anti said as he floated down and returned to his normal state, red claws, green eye, legs.
"Hehehehe, You didn't think that you would ever see me again outside of your dreams did you.." Alaster paused "~Anti?~"
Anti huffed and got ready to fight.
Dark fell to the ground as he heard the demonic voice speaking to him. He didn't dare look at that monster.
"You just Looovveeee Betraying, and decapitating your friends and brothers, don't you Dark?"
"yes you do"
"I swear, I don't"
"Then why did you do it Dark? Huh? Why'd you do it?"
Dark began to cry. He knew it was true. He almost enjoyed 'killing' Anti Back then.
The demonic voice spoke again.
"Oi, Mister Water Works Willie, you alright?"
Dark looked up, and everything went black.
Anti slashed and missed. Alaster was a good dodger. the momentum Anti had made him trip and fall. But he got up quickly. and turned around to see Alaster/Dark walking towards him, with a big smile on his face.
"BE GONE ALASTER!" Anti shouted "IT'S FINE IS YOU DESTROY MY MIND, BUT NOT HIS! GO AWAY!"
"Heheheh, Anti, darling. I plan not to hurt Dark. I just want something."
"What is that.?"
Anti jumped a little.
"What do you mean by 'Me.'?" Anti said, his teeth showing.
"You a good host, Anti. You're fast, smart. And you're timing for things is perfect."
Alaster flickered in and out of Dark. Dark had his eyes turned upwards so only the whites were showing. He looked like a mindless zombie, which is almost what he was. As they flickered, Alaster/Dark stopped walking and had to pause. That gave him an idea.
"and..." Alaster said as he fixed Darks shirt. "You didn't fight me as much."
Anti huffed. He just needed them to flicker again.
Then, it happened. Anti rushed Alaster while he was stunned. and pinned him onto a tree.
He began to choke Alaster.
"A-anti! Y-yOu Do-n't Kn-o-w What you-" Anti squeezed so that no air would come out. He was going to kill Alaster.
"An-t-t-i..........." Alaster said as he fully faded from Darks body. Anti waited a moment. And let go.
Anti felt a burning pain in his hands. He looked at them and saw them grow, sharpen, and turn a darker shade of blood red. Proving that he had once again, killed another person.
Anti looked too Dark and watched his chest. It was slowly rising and falling. Meaning only one thing...
He had finally killed Alaster.
If we take a look at Painting is fun, we see on Dark's left wing an image of Dark flying above a decapitated Anti. This determines that Anti blames Dark for his decapitation, but whether he is truly to blame or not is unknown at this time.
Also, the way they are positioned, as if in midair, along with the presence of Dark's wings, would seem to imply that they are flying. However, Anti has no visible wings in this picture, and although Dark is holding him, gravity is not pulling down on Anti like it should be if he truly cannot fly. More on this below. The green is obviously some kind of magic that Anti wields, but we cannot know from this picture alone what it is. It could be some kind of zinc-and-sulfur creation of his, for example, but it could also be almost anything else.
If we look at another picture, like Brotherhood, we know that Anti used to have wings, which could lead to the conclusion that the green is his shredded wings. This would explain Anti's enraged expression, which focuses on Dark. The viewer would assume that Dark destroyed Anti's wings, which seems completely plausible based on the information provided.
However, I choose to believe that this is not so. Going back to the image on Dark's wing in Painting is fun, we notice that Anti has no wings in the image. This can only mean that Anti lost his wings before he was decapitated, which, as I have mentioned, happened before this picture. Therefore, Anti is enraged for a completely different reason than wing shredding.
The title of this picture, Enemies, would have us believe that Dark and Anti are enemies, however in Brotherhood we see them fighting side-by-side. They must have had some sort of fallout, perhaps relating to the aforementioned decapitation. We do not know what this is yet, but hopefully we will know more soon. I have read many well-thought-out explanations for this, and if you are interested, I suggest you seek them out.
All in all, this is an extremely interesting and well-drawn series, and I congratulate Maskman626 on their fantastic art skills. I am floored by the beauty of your art, and I hope that creating these wonderful images gives you as much joy as it gives me to view them. Thank you so much, and have a phenomenal day.
anti: HOW CAN YOU EVEN SAY THAT AFTER WHAT YOU DID TO ME!
Dark: EXCUSE ME?
anti: I LOVED YOU! AND YOU BETRAYED ME! YOU ARE THE TRUE TRAITOR DARK!
Dark was stunned silent as the words left Anti's mouth. Anti and he had been like brothers for so long.
Anti was the opportunity as Dark was silent and stunned. He wrapped his claws around Darks face and squeezed the sharp ends into is flesh. As Dark screamed, Anti said softly...
"do you feel the pain? the burning sensation of your flesh being ripped?"
Dark screamed at the top of his lungs, and Anti kept Digging his claws into Dark flesh. After a minute or so, he slowly dragged his faces down, ripping the flesh as he went along. Anti leaned in next to Darks ear and whispered-
"I've felt that and not just on the outside." anti said as his smile faded "but on the inside too. I feel it every day actually. Thanks. To.YOU!"
lol i lie no im not
JESUS CHRIST THAT IS AWESOME
idk why but im super embarrassed to show my writing i have problems. I mean i could write something im not sure ifi should
Anti snarled as he scratched and clawed at Dark, rage boiling in his eyes and despair frothing in his mouth. His anguish swirled around him in the liquefied remains of his obliterated wings, misery sharpened his teeth, and hatred turned his fingertips into claws and colored them bloody red.
Dark’s eyes bloomed with his own rage, and his wings bolstered themselves with his resolve in his borrowed body.
Anti pulled his claws back to prepare for a strike, “I HATE YOU!”
Dark deftly avoided his claw.
Anti roared, “YOU WERE MY BROTHER, DARK! I LOVED YOU!”
Dark didn’t respond.
He just punched Anti in the gut, and razed him with his hot, pink flames that seared through the first two layers of Anti's skin.
