Waiting for Spring by StubbornVirus Waiting for Spring by StubbornVirus
My annual drawing of Lily White, and the first one with my tablet. 'S good practice, after all. Maybe eventually I'll get good.

Hey Lily... Can you make spring come already? I'll move you up to number 1 on my favoritism list.

I've been asking some questions about Lily, and have come up with some answers.

Why's Lily work for the Yama?  Because she's a fairy of spring, and who better to be the Yama's spy than a fairy that technically shouldn't exist the rest of the year?

Why a fairy?  To look out for the other fairies, who're basically children.  (Remember, Eiki's a jizou; protecting children is fundamental to her nature.)

Here's another thing I noticed.

When Lily comes, Winter, the season of death, is over, and she brings in new life, in Spring.
When you die, Eiki judges you, and you move on into new life- Reincarnation, Heaven, or Hell, but alive once again. (Well, except for those who are Annihilated, but then again, not everything survives Winter.)

They both represent a transition, from death, to new life. Or at least that's something I've interpreted it as.
