Warning/Spoilers: None in the art. Some Series 4 spoilers in my commentary following.

Notes: I just really wanted to draw these two. Title taken from the song "One and Only" by Adele.


I'm trying not to dissolve into a rant about how much I love the idea of these two. When I first came across commentary and mentions of Jess' crush on Becker, I was kind of skeptical as to how it would play out onscreen. What convinced me that that could work and get onboard the ship was basically that Becker fancies Jess, too. It's not just her pining over some guy that she thinks is out of her league or whatever. (And then he bought her chocolate in the second episode of series 4.) He's just not as forward about it. There's none of that angsty will-they-won't-they mess that went on with Connor/Abby, and it's quite refreshing and delightful to watch. In contrast, I wasn't convinced of any of the Matt/Emily until their goodbye scene. It was just so well acted, especially on Ciaran's part, that I really hope she comes back next series.

I quite enjoyed drawing Becker's hand tangled in her hair. :)

This is the first thing I've scanned with my new Epson all-in-one, and, boy, does it pick up so much more detail in my line art than my old scanner.

Feedback is lovely. :)

I always loved your Sheldon/Penny art so, so much, and now here it is illustrating my new fave couple! I love your style, the clean lines... and how well you capture the features- especially Becker.

I agree with you about Matt and Emily. I wasn't so sure about them at first either, mostly because of the mystery surrounding them both... you never really knew whether Matt was a good guy or not until the later episodes, and of course the way you found that out was through his relationship with Emily - I thought that was a good way of revealing Matt to the audience. And that final scene was completely heartbreaking! I'm sure she'll be back.

But yay, Becker and Jess! You're completely right about them - their non-angstiness is so refreshing. They're just too cute for words!

\o/ Glad you approve. :)

It's crazy how we keep bumping into each other as we ship the same pairings in various fandoms. :) First it was John/Teyla, then Sheldon/Penny, and now Becker/Jess. I was on browsing the Primeval fic, and there you were, posting Becker/Jess. I was beyond delighted. :)

LOL. Yes, surprisingly, Becker isn't at all shy about touching Jess. :)

Thanks so much. :) I wasn't sure I'd be able to get a good likeness of them the first time around, but things fell into place. Staring at screencaps of them for a few days helped, I guess. :0)

Love your Matt/Emily icon. :)
