BFOI: A Gift by etesian BFOI: A Gift by etesian
Now to explain. (hopefully you can understand without the explanation but just in case)

WALL OF TEXT WARNING
---
Okay, so I had the idea to do this during round 6 after :iconwinnie-beatles:'s entry. Gracedia seemed a bit upset, and I was wondering what Jon would do since they are friends... and he has a very mild case of being-completely-in-love-infatuated with Grace. So... This is the gift I came up with.

(originally this was supposed to take place between round 6 and round 7, but since that's a time span of a few hours... that wouldn't make sense... so... it's VAGUE. So I'll let winnie decide if its before round 6 or after 7)

Jon is a total pansy. He would never have the guts to just give her a gift himself. That would require holding back his sarcasm for 10 minutes and HEAVEN FORBID she ever start to think he has feelings for her. Plus I think this is a bit more powerful than say... a shaymin plush or a romantic stroll on the beach with a heart to heart. So the ONLY solution to this problem of course is to give the gift anonymously... and technically, not be the giver at all.

Jon is a birdkeeper... Grace has mentioned a couple times that bird keepers are cool... So Jon called home, pulled some connections and highly recommended they offer Grace and Honorary position. They agreed... after Jon emphatically explained why they should.

I didn't show Gracidea's reaction mostly because... I have no idea how she'll react.

Jon is not going to tell Grace that he put in the recommendation. If she asks him directly if he did, he will look her in the eyes and say "No." Because he wants her to know she earned it, it's not just because she has a friend who knows this guy who knows this guy.... yeah.

This was fun. My favorite part was the lighting. It was really fun and I'm proud of how it turned out.

The picture in panel 4 is NOT MINE. It's a copy of Winnie's drawing found: [link] I wanted to show she had other pokemon... which is why not needing to be exclusively birds is a good thing.

Hope you like it, Winnie.

As always, Critiques are welcome and encouraged.
Enjoy. Or don't. Or do.
All the best.

He's only a good birdy bro to Grace. To everyone else, they can go fight their own battles and do their own stuff.

Stop being secretive?! NUUU! CLEARLY if he even hinted remotely that he is slightly interested, let alone completely in love with Grace, she would smash his heart under her birdy-boots and laugh. Because that is what ALL females do, ALWAYS. Plus he has his whole "I don't care" facade he needs to keep up.

I'll be honest... that was one reaction that had not occurred to me.

Thank you. :3 I like the palette [town] a lot.
you mean post round 7? because post round 6 would not work. And maybe that IS a shack in Frond town... a really really big shack. OwO

Yes clearly Gracidea is a heartless beast who likes nothing more than to reject suitors in the most painful ways possible :I

I think I meant post R5, derp I get everything mixed up. But I guess that wouldn't make sense since she wouldn't be down in the dumps. So we'll say post R7 XD

Clearly. O3O

Well it could just be a random act of kindness if it were pre-round 6. But hopefully it will be enough to make her feel a little better after round 7... because jon's other means of comfort are... uh... less than compassionate... XD
