Jail bird blues by Tazi-san Jail bird blues by Tazi-san
Kinda sux when nobody believes you (except maybe one person) when you get locked up for something you didn't do. -_-

Okay, as for what he DIDN'T do... lol:

Tael was accused of being involved in Iris' kidnapping. It's kind of a guilty by association situation. He used to be a member of the Nightcrawlers, a gang (primarily canines) that terrorizes the north side of Caige City. Iris comes from a pretty rich family so the plot is pretty simple, hold her for ransom to get at her father, Professor West. :shrug: Iris' mother barely tolerates the ruffian friends her daughter hangs out with, so of course she was the first one to point the finger. As for the bruises...errr... in his days as a gang banger, he developed pretty strained relations with the cops ^^;

Summer, Tael's childhood friend is the only one who believes him. She manages to temporarily 'bail' him out-- the only way they are going to clear his name is if the duo goes after the real culprit themselves.

Cap has tried worse stuff, that's why he's even more messed up. That aside, he'd actually be a nice kid if he cleaned up his act.

I deliberately keep Cap's issue vague in my own mind as well. It's not explicit in the story but you can see that SOMETHING is wrong with him. Yes, thank you . . . secret! *o*

At first glance you think that Teal belongs there. His body language is defensive and aggressive. On the left side of him is shadowed and deceptively sinister. But when you see his right eye and bruised face and the shadow of the bars over him, you realize how vulnerable he truly is.
The cigarette is therefore a mask and way of coping. He is trying to hide his pain and shielding himself.
.sorry I sound like a one of those analytical assays. Heck Id have more fun writing an assay on this work of art then the depressing literality crap in school.
Teal just pops out of the screen and I love that about this piece.
Keep up the good work.
