Trauma Team: Rosalia's GUILT by cafe-lalonde Trauma Team: Rosalia's GUILT by cafe-lalonde
:icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:

"You found me in the middle of nowhere, and you made sense of everything that had happened to me and my Daddy. You did what you promised everyone you would do, and you found a way to make everyone's pain go away, except your own. You did nothing but help me, and...this is how I paid you back.

Ms. Kimishima...I'm so sorry."


"I'll come up with a plan, too. Please...just...stay alive, 'til then."
--Derek Stiles, ep. "Crime of Passion"
"This is the whole truth...illuminated by the light of life. You must've suffered, too. Let's end this."
--Naomi Kimishima, Patient Zero ep. "Carpet of Blue Death"

(Sandy ~Sake-Kohei thinks the alternative title should be DISASTER GIRL, and also, I don't just randomly capitalize words--if you're not a TC fan, GUILT is a reference to Gangliated Utrophin Immuno Latency Toxin. /nerd)

SO THERE'S THIS PIANO PIECE YOU SHOULD REALLY LISTEN TO ONCE YOU'VE LOOKED AT THIS ARTWORK: [link]

I have no idea when or why this idea popped into my head, but I always thought Naomi and Rosalia had a special connection. I'm not sure what Atlus was aiming for with the trippy-colors interlude after the Rosalia forensics case, but I guess it's their idea of a near-death hallucination or vision. I guess when your cell phone's a voodoo hotline, anything is fair game. But, I really loved how personally Naomi took Rosalia's case, especially considering solving her death was just a courtesy to a dead girl rather than a necessity. With how much Rosalia's spirit seemed to be hanging around Resurgam, this image popped into my head, after Naomi went under the knife.

I wish I had better background skills. The more I tried to digitally insert a backdrop, the worse it looked, so I decided to leave it blank. Also, this is the first time I haven't had to color-correct a Copic marker piece. c: YAY FIRST LEGIT PAINTING/DRAWING OF THE YEAR!

Time: 3 hours
Medium: Pencil, ink, Copic Sketch marker
Naomi Kimishima and Rosalia Rossellini ATLUS, Trauma Team

Beautiful. Simply beautiful. Man, that entire episode almost had me in tears. That's actually very good insight.

It's ironic. That virus ended up saving Naomi's life.

Thank you so much ;A; and holy crap, you're right, I never thought about it that way :O if she'd never gotten Rosalia, she'dve just died from secondhand GUILT exposure ;A;

Yeah, I actually realized that after I finished, which also made me really love the ending to the game. It was still heart wrenching what happened to Rosalia and Albert. They can rest easy now though.

Man, if only this is in the game...
I really want to glomp her.
I don't care if I'll end up infected and dying in agony crying and vomiting blood, she WILL have her well-deserved hug.
