The Albatross by Aetherya The Albatross by Aetherya
'Is it he?' quoth one, 'Is this the man?
By him who died on cross,
With his cruel bow he laid full low
The harmless Albatross.

The spirit who bideth by himself
In the land of mist and snow,
He loved the bird that loved the man
Who shot him with his bow.'

The other was a softer voice,
As soft as honey-dew:
Quoth he, 'The man hath penance done,
And penance more will do.'


Always wanted to be inspired by the myths of Sinnoh. This one is on Veilstone's Myth.

Girafarig because I wanted the Pokemon to be of a common species found near Veilstone, not some big Legendary. xD

The title refers to The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. The themes are similar. :P

It's been so long since I played the Sinnoh games, I forgot about all its myths and legends! Great job Ethy, I really like the colors :D

Omg it's been such a long time hasn't it ;__; I wonder what the remakes would look like

Part of me still thinks I should've re-colored the guy, but can't complain :3

Thank you <333
