Wow! Not too late for the contest! And I am done! by AzabacheSilver
Wow! Not too late for the contest! And I am done!
I dedicate this work to my inspirations in all of Sonic Comics, Patricke Spaziante and Harvey Mercandoocasio! (SPAZ/HARVO)
This was a cover I was making for a contest by my friend :iconcci545:.  I was going to color it and everything  because I believed I had plenty of time.  Then I got into a week internet argument with someone who thinks that all Mustangs should be rounded up like stray dogs and ground into meat, made into purses, other horrible things.  And in Sheldon Cooper fashion he would not give up.  I was invited to participate in this argument by him, next time I'll know better :C
Then I got an irate customer who wouldn't leave me alone, despite it was his fault the problems happened and he insisted I was to blame.  Then I hurt my hand doing the lawn so I couldn't work on this at all till today.  Then my church needed me.  Everything conspired to stop me!  Though I managed to get this much done, I think I put all my stress into this drawing!

I hope to win, but congratulations to those who win!

I've been sending this cover around to many of my usual groups.  If this comic concept intrigues you, check out the first chapter made by my friend here.…
TnL: SomeDayWeWillBeTogether by AzabacheSilver
TnL: SomeDayWeWillBeTogether
Another picture for those following our story, Teen Titans: Thunder and Lightning

Story: (The following is a love story of strange circumstances that have conspired keep them apart, but will it be forever?)
(based on the Diana Ross and The Supreme's Song, "Some Day We Will Be Together")…

Last night, Evan Rockford met the most beautiful woman he had ever met.
Mean Green/Evan: Wow!  I am sorry the Titans and me, I mean the Titans and I thought you were a villain.  We were all duped by the Wicked Witch.
Static: She's called "The Prairie Witch", Mean Green.
Gear: I thought this girl was the Prairie Witch.
Stormbringer: No, the old green woman is the original Prairie Witch.  She tricked my friend Elsa into taking her name and committing crimes for her.  Elsa's real name is Snow Queen.
_Stormbringer notices that Elsa and Evan are looking into one anothers eyes._
_She grabs Static and Gear_
Stormbringer: come with me guys.
Static: What are you?
Gear: Oh, Oh!  I can take a hint.

Mean Green/Evan: As I was sayin', sorry about the mix up.
Snow Queen/Elsa: It's alright, we were both deceived.  I was told by my mentor Thor, that the ways of Midgard have changed and you aren't supposed to point out differences in others.  But I must ask, you are not really a woman are you?
Mean Green/Evan: Well... yeah.  I'm just a 13 year old dude who can remove his head and put it onto other bodies.  I found this one, which was designed to not have a head, so when I lost my original body, I kinda had to use this one. _blushes with embarrassment_

(Evan's body is The She Clone)…

Static _interrupting_: We took care of everything with the police and the Ace of Winchesters has been returned to Constantine.  Robin want's us back at Headquarters, as he says it's an emergency, so...
Stormbringer: Come with us, Elsa.  I'll show you where we live!

Everyone was lifted home by Static's Electro Mag Mobile, built by Gear and Static when they had the idea of creating their own super team, but came in handy now that they were both Titans.  All the way home, Stormbringer rode shotgun next to Static, but she noticed they weren't going to be the only couple in the car anymore.  Now she noticed her friend Elsa was quite interested in chatting with Mean Green.  As they arrived at Titan's Tower, they noticed Robin and Starfire standing outside waiting for them.  "Stormbringer!  There's a friend of yours in the tower, could you go an explain things to her.  She's got a old screwdriver sticking out of her head.", Robin asked her.  "Ah!  Kaiyote has tracked us here, then?  Let us go see for ourselves, Elsa", Stormbringer said to her friend.    

Inside there the sound of boxes falling over and things crashing to the ground where punctuated by the shouts of two other Titans.  "Careful with that!  It's collectable!" Cyborg pleaded.  "Ow!  You cut me!" Beast Boy moaned.  "Did I not warn you that my tail was infinitely sharp?" a female voice very familiar to Stormbringer and Elsa.  "Kaiyote!  You found us!" the girls said to her.  "Ah!  My master Thor will be so pleased that I found his charges!", Kaiyote squealed with delight as she grabbed the girls up in a tight hug.  "Does that mean you are leaving?  Like right now?", Beast Boy said with excitement.  Cyborg was quickly gathering up what every he could salvage of his things that had been knocked on the floor.  "Kaiyote, tell my mentor and your master Thor I can not go yet.  I am currently engaged in a quest to help these Teen Titans and defeat those that are threatening this city." Stormbringer told Kaiyote.  The fur clad woman said to Stormbringer and Elsa, "Very well, but I must take at least one of you back to my master, or he will be most displeased with me."  Elsa saw her friend K'Chima had found friends here, as she was still learning about this realm, but it have to wait another time.  "I will go with you. Kaiyote", Elsa replied.

Later, the other Titans stood outside as Elsa and Kaiyote stood outside ready to leave.  Kaiyote made some runes signs with her hands and a huge rainbow bridge opened up before her and Elsa.  Mean Green ran up beside Elsa, as he was desperate to say something before she left.

Mean Green/Evan: Will I see you?  Again?
Snow Queen/Elsa: Maybe, if The Gods will allow it.
Mean Green/Evan: I just wish I could go with you, but I am still searching for my missing body.
Snow Queen/Elsa: I understand, but do let me know when you get yourself back together?
Mean Green/Evan: You'll definitely be the first one I let know! :D

Evan and the other Titans watched as Elsa and Kaiyote disappeared as they walked off into the bridge that faded from sight.  Evan walked back with the others, very depressed.  Cyborg got his attention, "Hey.  I need some help organizing my 80's collection, and since you really are from 1987..."  Evan smiled and followed Cyborg back to help him organize.

After they were done, Cyborg asked him, "So you wanna watch some of these old movies, maybe you wanna watch some episodes of Sledge Hammer?
(Sledge Hammer!)…!
Evan turned to him and said, "Actually you have any music from that era?"
Cyborg replied, "What do you want?  I got Punk, Rap, New Wave, New Jack Swing..."
Evan stopped him by replying, "Actually you have any old R&B?"
Cyborg retorted, "You bet I do!  Which artist?"
Evan thought and remembered, "Diana Ross... And The Supremes"

Evan sat on the couch listening to the stereo as it pumped out a Motown beat as the singer and her backup then sang, "Someday, we'll be together.  Say It.  Say It Again.  Someday, we'll be together. Oh yeah, Oh yeah"

Evan had a goofy happy grin spread out on his face as he thought of Elsa, and what would happen the day he found his body again.

Static: What's up with him?
Stormbringer: Can't you tell he's in love?
Static: With that girlfriend of yours?  He likes girls too?
Gear: Dude, be sensitive!  If you had your head put on a woman's body, wouldn't you be all gender confused!
Stormbringer watched as Evan laid back on the couch and thought, "If you can make my friend Elsa truly happy, it will happen for you one day Evan!"

As Elsa and Kaiyote made their way on the bridge, when Elsa stood and looked back the other way, her mind lost in thought.  Kaiyote looked at her smiled, "Oh Little Pup!  You like that one, don't you!"

I downloaded what I wrote and tried to work on it last weekend, but my flashdrive got an error and it's all gone!  I only have the drawing now :(

I was trying to remember it all, but my dad is pressuring me to go out and do more work to try to get enough money to pay all the bills.  I am so stressed now.
