A little something that came to mind when I saw a gorgeous snowglobe two weeks ago while buying gifts... ^^ Orihime would definitely be fascinated by such a present, Ulquiorra can't go wrong there~ Also, this was an excuse to draw them in their matching winter outfits designed by Kubo. (Clothes ref here and here)
[...Ulquiorra soon learned that the piano did not know any songs at all. It was a means for people to reproduce them; it had no voice of its own. And yet he felt a kinship with that old piano, as if it were an orphan like him. He imagined that nobody else wanted to play with it because it was dirty, scratched up, hardly used to the point that it was falling apart… and no one seemed to care. For that reason he always pictured the piano like the little match girl from the Christmas picture books. She was dirty too, and no other children in the story ever came up and offered to play with her.
He decided to be friends with the piano, and took lessons with the old woman every day in order to give that mute little girl a voice. He wanted the piano to express itself, to tell everyone how lonely it was...]
Ulquiorra playing the piano at the orphanage, with the piano's "soul" (a girl in the form of Orihime) sitting right next to him.
...a little something that came to mind after reading this chapter. It made me think that the girl Ulquiorra imagined to be the soul of the piano might as well have been Orihime, who was also going through a hard chapter in her life - tattered, broken, lonely...
This is dedicated to Carla (PrincessKitty) of course - the author of the story.
First of all, thanks for the birthday wishes, guys! I was so happy when I logged in and found so many nice messages ;W;
So, I finaly opened Sai, but just because it was to make something really important. This is a (late) birthday gift for the lovely Happy Birthday, Bby!! I miss you so, so much! Here, have some Ulquihime love, I know you love that, hahaha.
I've been doing fine. Exams are making me nervous but that means it's almost time for the winter break, yay! And since I'm away from my computer most of the time, I've been doing a lot of tradicional art. Maybe I'll take pictures and upload some of them later. On other news, my mother just moved out and I'm living all by myself! It's nice to have some independency, but I think it will get somewhat lonely, haha.
