Happy Valentine - Squall x Rinoa by zummerfish Happy Valentine - Squall x Rinoa by zummerfish
Imho most romantic couple in the history of gaming is Squall x Rinoa from FFVIII. It also happens to have one of the most beautiful ending videos, with light of love purifying everything around, petals flying, and whatnot. Ah, my sweet childhood [link] :iconiloveyouplz: !
So this is my attempt to recreate a piece of it for Valentine's Day, all thanks to lovely :iconadventtraitor: for allowing me to use her cosplay photo.

Have a sweet Valentine's Day everyone! :iconbigheartplz:

I agree with you. It is definitely the most romantic couple. I mean the whole romance build itself up over the game and Squaresoft did an amazing job with that. Oh and you did also an amazing job with that artwork. :D (Big Grin)

This is the most beautiful fan art I've ever seen of Squall and Rinoa, it brought tears to my eyes. My favorite game, couple and male character ever. I wish it was in super high definition so I could use it as my wallpaper.

Oh.My.Gawd. This is just perfect! It looks so very beautiful, my heart makes a mess with all its feels!

I am currently searching for a cover for my upcoming fanfiction and am considering this as a possible picture. If I end up chosing this, would you kindly allow me to use it? I will of course informe you once that happens, but I'd like to ask for your permission asap!
