Oh man sometimes it just seems like good Maria fanart is lacking-- but damn was I wrong! This piece is lovely, I feel like you've captured Maria very well in personality and purpose. I adored Maria so much since she was both the unwilling villain yet a hero all the same (depending on the ending), but I feel horrible for her in all the endings... Seriously. Along with Monika and Ogre she was my favourite character in the game. She had just a small amount of "twisted" but a lot of sense to go with it
Gosh I totally feel the same way about the amount of Maria fanart out there! I love her so much so it's totally painful to see the lack of love and art for her! She's a really noble character (in her love and loyalty for the doctor) but it just breaks my heart how sad her story is! I'm really glad she was able to break away from the doctor in one of the endings, even if only to be subject to more killing with Aya!!! ;A;
Sadly I think that a lot of people who didn't get the true end of Mad Father hate Maria since they know nothing about her ;w; I loved Maria for the same reasons as yourself, but also for how alike she was Monika herself- it was a shocking conclusion if you ask me! And in all honesty, I have my own little headcanon that she didn't participate the second time over but became more of a regretful observer ;A; In the end I think Maria only would do such things out of love and debt for her doctor. Then again, Aya saved her so I don't know how things turned there... Ohhh I wish more was revealed!!
