Does It Hurt, Slayers by AmberPalette Does It Hurt, Slayers by AmberPalette
Submission for [link] hosted by :icondbx-1138:

Left to right, reborn ancient dragon Val Ul Copt, mazoku priest-general Xelloss Metallium, and golden dragon former priestess Filia Ul Copt.

Yes, I ship XellossXFilia because of their ridiculously obvious sexual tension in the anime. Please please do not try to make blind rationalizations otherwise. ^^; If you dislike the pairing, go ahead, you have every right to your own views, but just admit that it's really obvious and PLEASE do not waste space flaming me or explaining why you hate them ^^; I accept that other people sometimes don't prefer canon pairings, but I don't want to hear about it here. Many thanks!

Timeline post-Slayers-Try.

Xelloss is wounded. He has a nasty habit of overestimating his own capabilities...although he IS partially entitled to his extreme self-confidence, considering his incredible power. Filia mends his wounds (again, lol...she has a habit of leaping to take care of him in the anime, while at the same time ranting that she "hates" him :laughing: )

And Val, who follows Xelloss around like an imprinted duckling, lmao, touches the wound and asks with big frightened eyes, "Does it hurt?" Judging by Xel's face, it does, but he's trying to be brave, lol.

Hajime Kanzaka is da shizzle, yo. Or something. He owns these characters. Lol.

Poor guy... I read the story holding my breath. And I read it to my friends too. I absolutely love it!!!! :heart::heart::heart::heart::heart:

I usually draw Filia with Milgasia, but I totally understand and admit that there is something between Xellos and Filia. This is a good pairing :D :D
It's great that you made so many drawings for the story, I keep finding more and more :D Congratulations! :)

Your drawings are lovely, I've seen a few! I always see Milgasia as a father figure to Filia, but that's only my conceptualization :3

Thank you very much! These are all quite old, I should get more Slayers art out there now ^^;

Thank you :) I never thought about Milgasia like this, but it also makes sense, well, it's probably just a matter of choice for each fan to include what they want in fanfics and fanarts :)
Definitely upload some more work! I look forward to see it :)

haha, so true! filia does always rush in to heal him even though he's "trash"! graah, i spent more than half of their scenes in TRI screaming at them to get over their races and just have hot, shmexy sex already, haha.

awww, what a cute val! and poor xelloss looks like he's trying to grin-and-bear it, while almost failing! the only possible problem i have with this pic is filia's face. i dunno, it just looks odd. her eyes are fine, but something about her nose/mouth area...

anyway, enough from me. nicely done!

-Isadiah/MKL, signing out.

Lol, I couldn't agree more wrt fandom comments.

The funny thing is of all three of them, Filia is the one I most faithfully copied from a screenshot reference. So I suppose in this case I would blame the TRY animators instead of myself ^^; I agree, the way they render noses as these odd triangular shadow things lmao, it's jarring!

LOL I don't think you should worry about anyone flaming you. This couple is like the most popular couple of the anime series and I for one think they are cute together. I did 2 music videos of them on my youtube account. The picture is very cute. It reminds me of a scene where Val hurts Xellos and surprise surprise Filia is the one rushing in to help him out. She also crys when he leaves after finding out they've been paired up in that one episode. Sometimes its just little things like that makes it seem possable. Adding this pic to my favs!

Your comment delights me! Thank you! I own TRY in its entirety actually and you just cited two of my favorite scenes! :D

Unfortunately, I've faced soooo much flaming on this pairing, even though merchandisers and even a few comments from Kanzaka himself peg them as canon. Essentially shippers of Lina and Xelloss, and Xelloss and Zelgadiss, have big problems with the pairing and unfortunately many of them are very rude about expressing their difference of opinion. At this point, however, I basically ignore flames. :) Thanks for your encouragement!!!

Merchandisers and even the owner of the characters comments them as canon pair? Wow so I guess they're meant to be then! I don't think Lina is good with Xellos. I know Xellos kinda worries about her sometimes as a friend at least and they saved each other but its more of a mutual friendship then anything.

As for the Yaoi Pair of Xellos and Zel I don't like Yaoi pairings. No offence to anyone who likes it. I just kinda think its unfair pairing straight characters and making them gay. I don't think its fair for the author of the characters. I'm not going to rant on about it though. Its my opinion and I understand that no one has to agree with me.

lol I think you and I may be kindred spirits. While I have nothing against homosexual and lesbian pairings, I DO have something against changing a character's sexual orientation for shock value, so we completely agree there. Further, though Lina and Xelloss have some character traits in common, I agree that it doesn't make them a suitable couple. At best they bring out each other's most reprehensible characteristics, at worst he seems perfectly content to offer her up as a reward for bringing new recruits like Valgaav to the side of the mazoku. Xelloss admires LIna's tendency to create the chaos off of which he feeds, but again that seems to me more parasitic than romantic. It's much more interesting to watch opposites coexisting, like Xelloss and Filia. And YES hehe merchandising: there is a filia doll with a little Xelloss, aa set of Slayers trading cards with them paired up, Zel and Ame paired up, and Lina and Gourry paired up, and they're always next to each other in Slayers TRY Bgm CD covers.

AWWW! A Filia doll with Xellos?! AWWWW! Man I would love to get one of those!

Yeah I did notice that in many image scans they're always next to each other. If only some would realize that...

Holy carpenters of doom (don't ask, I don't even know), that wound looks like it is going to be sore in the morning! Eeesh.... cute, though. Val is so adorable!!!! I love that his tail is hanging out and that his ears are showing. ^^

Merry Christmas, btw, or whatever you celebrate!

The Val-creature is really cute and he really looks worried. And Xelloss expression exactly shows how much it hurts, but he's completely denying it... to impress to women, I think ;)
