The Scene: "Yuki!" Toya called out to Yukito to stop him and start 'THAT' conversation again Yukito stopped, then started to turn (cel) For more... go to the next cel!

Why?: Okay I know this is not exactly the perfect shot I wanted a little more of his back turned away but it has the emotional impact I was looking for. His body language when he stops to turn and look at Toya is hunched over like he is protecting himself from being hurt. He is not standing tall and happy like he does through most of the series. He is obviously exhausted and unhappy. Is it bleeding through because Yue is still grieving over Clow? Is he just feeling the undercurrents of Sakura being unable to support him? Is he overwhelmingly jealous of Nakuru a rival who is essentially the same as him, but can come up to Toya in public and hang all over him inappropriately as if he were hers? An argument can be made for each one, but I believe it is a combination of all three culminating in many scenes like this throughout season 3. Each one getting more devastating than the last... If you can't tell I LOVE this scene. ^_^

About the Cel: The cel is in really good shape, not key by any means, and I am using a background that I have used before in place of the original sky background with the skeletal tree branches...
