OroKonan - Winter Winds by jesterry OroKonan - Winter Winds by jesterry
Your eyes don't trick you.
I'm so far the only person on DA and beyond, shipping Orochimaru & Konan :faint:

:iconcannotevenplz:'Cause eventually, this was bound to happen.

Two of my favourite narutoverse characters, paired with anyone but each other?
Finally, I gave it a try.

The concept of evil being nourished by crippled love is just too much of a temptation to resist.

As for Konan (even regardless my tendency to ship her elsewhere :XD:) - it's like: the enemy + Akatsuki + loneliness + almost dead Nagato/Pein + whoever-you-are-Madara(Obito) = sheer darkness :heart:

Just as I love my fanart served :nod:

This also couldn't have happened without one certain dose of inspiration.

I feel immense sadness looking at this picture :( The thoughtfulness and expressions are nice, even the pairing is decent. Just a little to gloomy for me :raincloud:

Trust me; it's gloomy even for me :huggle:

And I also feel something dark and infinitely sorrowful about them; which is far worse if I just felt something akin to "wow; cool; funny pairing" :no:
Who knows why we're both feeling this strange way :sherlock:
But this makes me wonder; and thus; investigate moar into the matter! :nod:

Well, if we are both feeling it, then... it might be our intimate knowledge of all things Naruto (their past history, their depressing childhoods, their psychotic outbreaks, their broken hearts, etc) or something else entirely. Both never really connected with those they loved most (Tsunade & Yahiko). They had brief moments (w/ T & Y), but their longing was never satisfied. It is perhaps because of this as well as your color scheme that such a heart-wrenching, and dismal portrayal of love never obtained, then brought together in intimacy that I find so saddening. It is like a rainy tragedy of shunned love, then found in a hopeless place which reminds me of a song, but that song is upbeat in a downer kinda way... type of thing. idk its just sad :cry:

I must say I'm VERY intrigued by the very prspects of OroTsu being a real thing; not another spark of fanartists' perverted collective mind!

Mostly because I'm very tempted to believe Orochi did have that unrequited (and never even voiced aloud) feeling for the Godaime - sometime in their youth; but somehow this could have turned into pure hate afterwards; when their paths diverged entirely.

(And if the Minato-as-son-of-JiraTsu theory is right; then Oro has even more reasons for anger :nod:)

I however am inclined to think Orochi (in the best days of Sannin's youth) had almost equal tender feelings for the both of his teammates; but he hardly ever (never) bothered to risk at expressing them :(

Nonetheless; my musings aside; I find your words:
dismal portrayal of love never obtained, then brought together in intimacy
being particularly touching and no less heart-wrenching than the initial concept :nod:

Understanding is just another name for happiness; that's what I know for sure.
So thank you so much for understanding all of this :la:

Venturing into predictions, OroTsu honestly has a real chance, depending on the twisted mind of the creator. We are in agreement on the never divulged youth love triangle business. (big IF in my opinion, but there is still room for a glimmer of possibility :altermind:) I am also inclined that direction, but Oro's interest was on Tsu the whole time.

Thank you, even if it is heart-wrenching. :hmm: Still so bleak... *sighs*

If that is what you know and believe, then you are kindly welcome to all the understanding I have to offer :aww: You are always welcome :la:

Thank you for sharing this... challenging artwork :D It may not be my favorite, but it is intriguing, just like Can never let you go, but in a different way :altermind:
