I remember you... *updated description* by CallMePo I remember you... *updated description* by CallMePo
Just watched the Adventure Time episode "I remember you".

*SPOILERS BELOW*






Another very moving and emotional story with a lot of depth between two characters you really don't know much about so it was very surprising finding out part of it was a shared history.

I was so moved I felt I had to draw something... like how Marceline will always remember how happy she felt with Simon at her side long after he forgets about her...

*update*
Since people are asking why Marceline would have an octopus for her tat, here is my answer:

An octopus is considered a monster of the deep/darkness - but in fact they aren't monsters at all.

They are smart, can change color or lose a limb if necessary when they have to escape - which eventually grows back.

It symbolizes survival, regeneration and healing.

It also reminds Marceline of the many hugs she got from Simon when she needed to be comforted.

I thought it would be something she would choose instead of something "cute".

I saw that episode, I watch it over and over with on demand. Its so freakin sad. Simon was one of the few people Marceline was close too, and he can't remember her.

It's really too bad the Ice King is such a major tool, 'cuz he looked like a pretty decent cat in the flashbacks.

Marceline, however, is still bringing it down like Judd Nelson in The Breakfast Club: Freakin' Harsh! only cooler ;3

Oddly enough when I saw the octupus, I thought of Bioshock series (good ending). Mainly because you see a couple of octopus down there when you explore and look around enough. Didn't think it was referencing Adventure Time.

I didn't get to see the episode until a couple hours ago, but man, when I did... So many feels! :iconmanlytearsplz:

I love this piece, it just works for whatever reason. It's something I can see Marceline doing, getting a tattoo to remind her of how happy she was with Simon, and how he always made her feel safe, and loved, like she were his own daughter, probably even more than her "real dad" ever did. Amazing work as usual, 'Po :D.

It's probably to symbolize something from their past relationship, like how close they were, or how she felt safe with Simon there to comfort her and hug her, and just tell her that things were going to be okay whenever she was afraid or sad, or something like that.

I'm telling you, that episode moved people to tears; this guy included.

This episode probably caused people to cry to because it hit a little too close to home for some. I know it did for me.

Anyway, a tattoo is definitely good way to remind you of something or someone. Just ask the women who have an ex's name tattooed on some part of their bodies.

At first, I thought they were going for an Ice King/Marceline relationship, which would have been very odd. But then they delved into their pasts, and it was really well told, for the amount of time that they had.

Seriously that ep just threw me for a friggin loop! I mean given what we already saw of the Ice King's past in the Christmas I didn't think it could get much more sad. Guess I was wrong! Just...damn! Never would have seen anything like THIS coming when I first started watching this show.

It was really a good and touching episode. What i like is how much they developed the Ice King not just making him your typical villain where he does have one of the most tragic moments that is a bit similar to Mr. Freeze from TAS.

Was a nice to see the Ice King and Marceline interact for the first time and we know why they haven't made this characters meet until now, the ending was just epic.

With the pic really nice Po, i like how you draw Marceline and the tattoo looks nice on her :).

It kind of makes the show a little creepy when you realizing Finn and Jake keep on beating up on what is basically an old man with dementia.

Oh my god, I never thought of that. Ice King is an impaired ill man and Finn and Jake regularly kick the stuffing out of him. My god, poor Simon needs to be committed to the mental hospital where Chips and the Royal Toter are.

Well he really isn't human anymore.
Though the dementia point still stands.

If this show had a more story arc structure it would be nice to see Ice King be return to Simon and be an ally against the Lich...who's doing something.

There's the rub...

It is popular because it is small concentrated stories which don't have to happen in sequence.

There was only a handful of stories which was part of an arc (remember "Mortal Recoil" and "Too Young"?) but luckily those worked just as well as standalone episodes - which networks like because they don't have to air them in sequence.

Yeah I know. Still would be pretty cool though if there was a structure like that. And there is small continuity with events clearly happening in a certain order. But I guess since they're so spaced apart its easy to air them in any order.
