"I... very much appreciate my father's company. He is kind, but not overly. He teaches me instead of coddles me, and I feel... powerful when I'm with him. Like I matter."
"Ah! Had it not been for Athena's kindness so many months ago, I doubt my dear brother and I would be alive to tell you the tales we both share! I am forever in her debt and thankful for the company we now keep because of it. Seven, my loyal friend. You make me smile even under the worst of days. Kane, your strength and loyalty are brilliant! Angus... ah, well, you live, so I can't complain!"
"Mother has not failed me just yet, nor do I think She would ever lead me astray from the path that I have been given. I do not need to be thankful for this-- it is Her duty, such as obeying her is mine."
"...there ain't nothin' left for me, the fire took it all away."
AAH GUYS!! LOOK, I DID IT! THREE DAYS OF SOLID WORK.
I had this planned immediately once I saw the MSE for this month and boy this is the first thing in a good while I'm really proud of.
It sort of goes from pure intentions to lost cause really, since I think each character sort of has their own idea of what they should be thankful for / what has gone well for them.
In total it probably took close to 10 hours? Give or take.
As a sidenote!
I'm extremely grateful at what DotW has offered me as an artist over the course of this last year. It's crazy how much time has gone by since I first joined, and looking at it now I can't exactly believe I've been with you guys for so long. I've met a bunch of wonderful people and I've felt at home here, one of the first places in a long time that has grown on me in such a way that even the bad bits every now and then aren't exactly enough to push me out. I enjoy writing with you guys, and I love seeing the characters take on lives of their own in this crazy little wolf group.
So thank you guys for this last year, I hope there are more to come!
