I have been way, way overdue for drawing something Jenny-related, and I thought it was about time I drew Eli Praetor again. This is the man Jenny loves, and though he may not be the last, he will be the Best, and he will be Forever, even if she doesn’t know it yet, but I suspect she might.
I did this cute character quiz with Jenny and Eli
once, and there’s some little nuggets of information in there about the both of them, like, for example, Eli’s first name is John, which would make him the second or third John that Jenny has loved, and that Eli is a preacher’s son. I’ve had a lot of time to think about him, and his personality is so clearly developed in my mind, I hardly know where to begin.
Eli has, just incidentally, had to say goodbye to almost no one. The people who come into his life have stayed, and because he hasn’t known it any different, he doesn’t realize how unusual it is. Clover County has hung onto its people, and Eli has looked after them, in some respect, his entire life. And Jenny came, and Jenny stayed, for the first time. Jenny decided to stay.[ reblog on Tumblr ]
