"Why is it that the beautiful things are entwined more deeply with death than with life?" 

-- Ken Kaneki (Tokyo Ghoul) 

Kaneki (and the well-poised cast of Tokyo Ghoul) always delivers such memorable and heart-touching lines... I think one of my most favorite Kaneki quotes is still as follows: "Human relationships are chemical reactions. If you have a reaction then you can never return to your previous state of being."

Ken Kaneki by muddymelly 

My dear y'all, I've absolutely got to improve in so very many facets because there is so much that I dearly hope to do better for y'all...!!! Thereby, I must beg your pardon as I rush back to work/catching up on communications/working on overdue solutions/finally finishing things that I very much owe y'all! m(/____\)m Please accept this edgy spoop of an artwork. 

That's my secret, Captain... I'm always behind on work... and am constantly thinking about the folks that I've let down and need to make amends for, and the folks that are waiting on me, that are unreplied-to, that have important concerns that I must address, that have critiques that I must express gratitude for, and that have kindly taken care of me. I owe so many so much. 

I'm so sorry for being behind on these things, and am ever thankful for your very treasured patience. 

Please know that I am unspeakably grateful for y'all and to y'all. (>///<pq)

It's not edgy, it's crystalline. Like he decided to take a slight side trip to Land of the Lustrous for a spell and decided to keep the aesthetic after he came back home. (That would be quite the crossover, wouldn't it?) And that slight glitch effect is a nice touch!

Don't stress too hard about catching up on stuff. Things happen and considering how aware you are of what you have to do, you'll get to things in good time.

Your art looks like it's made of brilliantly-colored water.
