Behold this night, still and clear
You look here just like an angel sleeping
I wish I could ease your fears
I would catch the diamond tears you're weeping
In your eyes I would hide
By your side I could defy
The forces tearing us apart
But reality, as it seems
Looking back, is that our dream
Was fated from the start

Girl, we're star-crossed and can't escape
We're condemned and can only wait
At this time now it's far too late
To save us from our fate

I'll remain in your whole
Body, mind, heart and soul
As long as I breathe
Though consequence takes its toll
All is out of our control
That's how it will be
So close your eyes my young bride
Listen to me one last time
There's something I have to say
When your faith turns to despair
Always will my love be there
And never fade away

Girl we're star-crossed and can't escape
We're condemned and can only wait
At this time now it's far too late
To save us from our fate
You can't save us
You can't save us

Girl we're star-crossed and can't escape
We're condemned and can only wait
At this time now it's far too late
The poison's in our veins
It's true
You know that I'd die for you
You know that I'd die for you
You know that I'd die for you

Forever true
I'll see you through

- lyrics from Starcrossed, by Ash


More The Sight art, whoopdeedo. A little more morbid than what I usually draw, so will slap a rating on this one just in case.

Fanart of Kipcha and Khaz because I love them and NOBODY ELSE seems to be drawing them. Their story ended so tragically. So tragically that I got inspired to do this. It's been running about in my head for quite a while, now. I like these characters and feel for them so much that when they died I almost stopped reading the book. Their successive deaths were two of the most poignant moments in the entire book for me.

As far as the picture is, though, I really like how it turned out. The composition appeared in my head more or less as it appears here, as my compositions generally do. I'm not too sure why I chose to picture their violent deaths above exactly... as I mentioned I'm quite an instinctive artist - if the picture wants it, I'll put it in. Or maybe I'm just a morbid person underneath it all. *shrug* The words are a line from the song Starcrossed by Ash, which was another catalyst for the picture itself as I think it fits them quite well. Sigh =(

I just had the greatest idea ever O.O Can I please use this as a ref picture for a story?

What do you mean by 'ref picture'? If you just mean you want to use it as inspiration to write a fanfic of some kind then by all means go ahead, but if you are asking for permission to repost it elsewhere, then I'll have to say no. This picture was drawn as a gift to my boyfriend and I'd rather it wasn't used in any other way :)

The first one lol I mean, I'll link back to you to show where the inspiration came from, but Id never post it anywhere else without your say so, which has been a no, so I wont repost it at all ^-^

Oh GAH I'm so sorry, I didn't realize which picture you meant. 'Starcrossed' is so old and I had just posted a new dev up yesterday so I thought you were commenting on the new one. I realized my mistake too late and then didn't know which picture you were commenting on. That's what I get for reading comments last thing at night and forgetting to look at deviation titles. xD

This is fanart, so I don't really mind that much if you use it (always different when it's fanart and when it's original characters). By all means, link to it or post it, whatever you like. All I ask is that you add that you're using the image with permission (just in case some people decide to cause a stink about it) and link back to me of course. :) But since you were nice enough to ask about it I don't doubt that you'll give credit where it's due! Go forth :)

Best fanart I have found so far of Kipcha and Khaz. Im re-reading this book actually, and them being my favorite couple, I have cried seeing this because it has reminded me that I will have to see them die again. This means so much to me, your artwork is beautiful.

Have you even read the book? Or did you even read my description properly? When they died in the book, I was so sad about it that I drew this.

I'm sorry, but seriously, stop asking me questions that you could easily answer just by reading the description of the picture.

Yes, I nearly stopped reading entirely when I got to that part. Khaz and Kipcha were the characters I found most interesting at that point, so to have both of them suddenly die one after the other was very jarring and I had to put the book down for a week or two just to recollect. The Sight isn't my favourite book, but I did think it a very good one.

Thank you!

But Larka and Fell are black and white, and these wolves are not, so it couldn't be them anyway. If you read the description you will see that it is Khaz and Kipcha.
