No. 6 Because of You by Midorii-kiri No. 6 Because of You by Midorii-kiri
I will not break the way you did,
You fell so hard
I've learned the hard way
To never let it get that far

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I lose my way
And it's not too long before you point it out
I cannot cry
Because you know that's weakness in your eyes
I'm forced to fake
A smile, a laugh everyday of my life
My heart can't possibly break
When it wasn't even whole to start with

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you

I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I find it hard to trust not only me, but everyone around me
Because of you
I am afraid

I watched you die
I heard you cry every night in your sleep
I was so young
You should have known better than to lean on me
You never thought of anyone else
You just saw your pain
And now I cry in the middle of the night
For the same damn thing

Because of you
I never stray too far from the sidewalk
Because of you
I learned to play on the safe side so I don't get hurt
Because of you
I try my hardest just to forget everything
Because of you
I don't know how to let anyone else in
Because of you
I'm ashamed of my life because it's empty
Because of you
I am afraid

Because of you
Because of you



Picture of Xan breaking up with Alshara after she turns into the Slayer.

Based the Slayer shadow off of a pic by Lythari.

Drawn for the 100 art challenge theme 6: Break Away

Xan and the Slayer belong to Bioware and Black Isle
"Because of You" belongs to Kelly Clarkson
Alshara belongs to me

As soon as I heard that song I totally thought of the Xan romance, so happy Im not alone in associating songs with the romances.

Great work.
And poor Ally. Though I can understand that Xan's afraid of the Slayer, the way he behaves later, you know,that talks when he compares Charname to the monsters like Irenicus, is the thing he could better abstain from doing if he have just a bit of sense of decency.

I understand the reasoning behind it. It's still sad though.

We should cheer her up and buy her something.

Well, she's perpetually emo anyway, so I don't think it'll do much anyway.

Poor Ally. Dumb Xan. Why can't he understand that women have to get tough sometimes?
Nice job with the shadows.

Thank you.


Well, I can understand his viewpoint somewhat. He's afraid. Afraid for himself and for his love interest.

He needs to toughen up

Well, the fear for the love interest is that if she killed him, it would hurt terribly.
