We Must Be Crazy... by Mizu-no-Akira We Must Be Crazy... by Mizu-no-Akira

We must be crazy
But you're so beautiful
Life is hasty just like me and you
All these strangers
Working in the graveyard
Lovers and haters
We must be crazy
Out here in the night
Show me the light before I go blind
Out here in the night
Show me the light before I go blind

- "We Must Be Crazy" by Milow



Wheee :D I wanted to do some Graystripe-Silverstream fanart for a while now, but I couldn't find a good scene, nor a good song to go with it. But after hearing this song on the radio I couldn't stop thinking about it and simply HAD to make some Warriors-fanart for it. I don't think this scene was mentioned in the books, but who cares :D After so many sad and somewhat depressing pictures I felt like drawing something happy again :3 And Graystripe and Silverstream were so happy together.
In contrast to most other "forbidden" affairs and lovestories going on between cats from different Clans, this one affected me directly. It didn't seem to be a forced love for the plot... when I read how they met for the first time and how their relationship developed it felt just right. Like they really loved eachother :)
And again, like all good and actually healthy relationships in the Warriors-series it ended too soon. That's why I decided to capture one of their happy moments together. Since the first series was written from Firestar's point of view, it was never described how Graystripe and Silverstream met and what they said to eachother during their meetings, so I made up a scene after Silverstream told Gray she'd have kits.
I hope you like it :)

Next upload will be Hollyleaf's deathscene... or some more Star Trek fanart.. depends on what's finnished first :)

Oh, I almost forgot,...uhm... I recently noticed a lot of people tracing my pictures and uploading them, claiming them as their own. Guys, please. I don't want to sound arrogant or something, but if some of you steal art just because they think they cannot draw well enough, then let me tell you something: You'll never improve your own skills by tracing somebody's pictures. That's not how it works. Using someone else's drawing-style is okay. But simply tracing over doesn't have any kind of learning-effect. :/ Please think about that for a minute... I'm sure it'll make sense to you. Thanks! :)

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room

Yeah I agree. But the Erins, who write the story, said in StarClan, Graystripe chooses Silverstream over Millie.

I've honestly never cared much for Silversteam. Sure, I guess she was okay, but she never spoke to me as much as other characters such as Tallstar and Foxtail. Same goes with Firestar.

I didn't think much of her either. I didn't care much about her when she was alive (I skimmed over a few of her parts cause she annoyed me) then when the time came and she died, I thought, "Meh..."

I found a base made off this, and I really liked it, so I thought I'd come here and favorite the original instead. I love warrior cats and this is a beautiful piece. It looks like it could be a screen cap from an animated series.

Well to me, Graystripe fell in love with Silverstream upon first seeing her, while Gray's love for Millie took time. I will admit, it was cute, in a way, but give me developed love over love at first sight any day.

No offense, if you found that offensive.

I have a question, are you a member of warirorcatsonline.com ? And if so, is this your profile? www.warriorcatsonline.com/apps…
As that is your art recolored and they claim it as their own, just wondering.
