Ashes of the past by ThatWildMary Ashes of the past by ThatWildMary
"Now, remember all the times
We once lived out all our dreams
But when we lived out all our dreams
They were better than they are now.

Now, remember all the times
When we looked into our eyes
We knew that we once loved again
Then we gazed with earnest eyes.

Now, remember all the times
When we shined with all our hearts
We once lived out all our dreams
And we loved each other then."

Well I've been wanting to draw something kinda like that for a while~
I think we can call this a 'good' vent.
Some kind of artistic representation of something I've felt not long ago
After overcoming some hard times, eventually it was time to let the past behind
Burn the pages of stories that will never be told, erase the pain and suffering from times long gone.
In a way... Kou ended up becoming a symbol of change, there's a lot more to his character than I show~
A hero born in darkness to ressurect hope... Rising from the ashes of war to rule the flames of a new beginning.
(It's not that deep // well it kinda is but I suck at explaining and I'm shy anyway //)

So... in short, 2015 was a really hard year, well things were not looking very good for a few years before then honestly,
lots of sadness, self hate, problems at home and with friends, tbh only lately things really changed for the better.
Surely therapy and the support of my closest friends were very important during this time...
And after a big breakdown, it's finally time for a new beginning~
I'm fighting my social anxiety in hopes of being able to do more with my life, I have plans for the future,
I'm being able to draw a lot, like what I do, and do what I like, and it feels honestly great!
Of course I still have a huge backlog of things to finish, work-wise, from the times I couldn't find strength to work pff
But I'm slowly going through everything, and making my way towards starting fresh <3
With new goals, new knowledge, and a bright smile, I'll keep going through life, because I survived this war.

Also... I like how this one looks pff, still experimenting with coloring and all that, but I made it sketchy bc...
I really need to get back to work...... So enjoy this quick thing, now I'm off to finish stuff :,3c
