Like strangers in town by RT912 Like strangers in town by RT912
A rather sad-looking animation, partially inspired to make this when listening to my favorite Michael Jackson song 'Stranger in Moscow'.

Tempest and Xeno share another moment of comfort and support to each other, while Sheila looks at them in pure sympathy from behind Tempest, while Godel also observes this on the roof of a nearby building, all the while civilians walk by and ignore them and rain is falling on them...

-------

Another part that made me want to make this is because my OCs here can be seen as the 'Strangers' in this part. Tempest could be seen as a stranger; once he was brought back to life and all, he pretty much felt alienated in a world that has moved on in the years he spent in a comatose state on Mars, was practically homeless and had to do different odd-jobs in order to get enough money to get himself food and a roof above his head. Xeno was often alienated by the people she associated with, due to Scout inflicting the abuse and all and had enough contacts at that time to give everyone that even dared to speak up a bad name, simply so he could eventually conquer the planet. Sheila also feels she's the odd one out, not because she was raised by a well-respected general in the Royal Army, but partially because people were intimidated due to Sheila's love for collecting (and later using) weapons. She held this back most of the time so she could be the strong person, but ever since Tempest spoke out his concerns for her openly, she showed a more softer side of herself, effectively showing her true self underneath her mask. As for Godel, the causes lie with Gohan and Videl both; Gohan has had to deal with his shortcomings and the lack of the actual thrill of battle, unlike his father and Vegeta, while Videl feels often more embarrassed because of her father's antics, as well as fearing that people wanted to befriend her, just because she is the Daughter of the World Champion, instead of seeing her for the person she really is.

-------

To be very honest, I can somewhat associate myself with the context of the song, mostly due to my poor social skills in my youth, difficulty to express myself or having generally other interests than most other kids in school, which led to the usual teasing/bullying and everything (although one kid in my class in elementary was already an asshole in general; bastard kicked my left shin so many times blood was eventually forced from the bruise). I pulled through in the end, made some great friends and all, but it wasn't exactly a time period I look back on in happiness.

------

And this also is to see if the rain effects I added here are also good enough to be used at some point later on in my series.

Tempest, Xeno, Sheila and Godel are :iconrt912:

The lack of social skills is something I can definitely relate with. Still, I'm happy with who I am. i may be different, but that means I get to see the world from a unique perspective: my own.

Same here, even though I have improved a lot over the years I've come to terms with myself and with the aid of my parents and all. It's still not perfect, but still, I'm a lot more confident about myself.

Nicely done though unsure if this should be good or bad

It depends on how you look at it. The good thing is that Tempest and Xeno do have each other and people who can sympathize with them, the bad thing is that other civilians are ignoring them and go about on everyday business.
