Autre Temps by WaitingForMyRainbow Autre Temps by WaitingForMyRainbow
I have spent months on this. MONTHS. I'm still not completely happy with it, but I can live with this version... for now.

This was mostly inspired by Autre Temps by Alcest, a beautiful song that reminds me of the Flower Queen and her Knight.

Une prière lointaine que porte le vent du soir
Anime les feuilles dans leur danse alanguie.
C'est le chant des vieux arbres entonné pour toi,
Pour ces bois obscurs maintenant endormis.
Sans nous attendre tant de saisons ont passé;
Les feuilles dorées s'en allant mourir à terre
Renaîtront un jour sous un ciel radieux,
Mais notre monde érodé restera le même
Et demain toi et moi serons partis.

A distant prayer, carried by the evening wind
Enlivens leaves in their languid dance.
Hear the song of the old trees, singing for you
For the dark, resting woods.
So many seasons have passed; they did not wait.
The golden leaves dying on the ground
Will be reborn under bright skies
As this weatherworn world remains the same,
And tomorrow, you and I will be gone.

Feedback is totally welcome. If you can see something that could be done better and know of a way PLEASE tell me. I'm striving to improve as much as possible. Also, if anyone wants to try colouring just the lineart, I'll happily upload it.

Blossom <333 it's a damn shame that she went out in such a way, would have loved to see her unite with Diva and Ash one more time

I wonder a lot how she dealt with the Third Century wars, if she picked a side or was even still their friend by that point. There's such a huge gap in Drow history that we know nothing about =(

Yes that's my issue with some things, there's an 800 year history that's almost blank concerning the empires. There's no way Diva and Ash couldn't have tried to reach out to Blossom at some point in time.

There's actually a lot of things that have been referenced that still haven't been explained. Like The Longest Wait references "the incident at Orthorbae". What incident? What happened? How bad was it? Or the more recent "Where did Nishi'kanta go?". I wish DayDream would do more pre-Moonless Age stories, those at least fill in some gaps.

Yeah there are quite a lot of things that need to be filled. DD helps with that even if it's not canon.. as long as people vote for these kinds of choice :|

I tend to accept DD as canon unless MA directly contradicts it, since DD is a lot different now to how it used to be. I mean that chapter about Silice was basically "Let Kern tell it" xD

Very true, and most people seem to prefer parodies and whatnot. Beyond the Veil has been awesome so far though =3 I love anything with Sharess and Vel'Cahal.
