This Amber x Mike piece by pixelspasms was almost third place! Seriously, it was so very close. Part of what I loved was the title and/or caption she included: “That was my plan. To make you game-over.” Without that, it’s just a very well-rendered drawing of Mike kissing Amber. But with it, there’s a whole Evil Scheme involved, with possible secondary romantic objectives??? I love this thing.
But it didn’t have Danny in a dress, so it fell just short of placing. Damn.
To round out today’s Amber x Mike theme, here’s an entry from Steven Brown. Bonus points for sweet Mike abs. Points detracted for putting Amber in a Shortpacked! uniform! This is a Dumbing of Age contest, man! But seriously, this is hot.
