Proud

I am having a bit of a proud moment over here. If you do an image search for “Captain Rhodes” you find a picture of my Original Character Kiz and Rhodes (Day of the Dead) before you find anything of Warmachine. I don’t know why, but this makes me feel rather happy!

Rhodes has been a part of my life for the longest ever time now, and he’s always haunted a part of Kiz’ life, regardless of whomever she is with. He’s there, lurking in the background; alive or dead. He is that much of a jerk to her.
What I like about the two of them is that they don’t have a conventional relationship. While I could draw them all lovey-dovey. (It’s not impossible) I just don’t see it as them. Not really. There is too much of a power struggle and abuse in their relationship and Rhodes just refuses to ask nicely for anything; we can see this with Sarah in Day of the Dead, never once does he ever use her name, always calls her ‘woman’ or ‘lady’ and I never once thought that he would ever treat Kiz any differently. Kiz just doesn’t have endless strength to keep denying him – it’s the epitome of a love/hate relationship.

I don’t know, I guess that I have had the two of them in my head for so long that it feels really strange to watch Day of the Dead and Kiz isn’t in it!

The picture in question
