A clear indication I'm reading far too much shoujo manga. I had quite a lot of trouble getting Hitomi's face right. It doesn't matter what Van looks like because his head is at a funny angle :) Btw, this was a gift for Lyn, specifically regarding her fanfic 'A Return to Gaea', which is IMHO one of the best fanfics out there (but the URL of which I can't remember :P). They're both 5 years older in the story. Aug 2003: I finally found the link XD (below). Be warned, the ending is very... Escaflowne. You'll know what I mean if you've seen the whole series.
