It's kinda sad now that i just realised because humans have shorter lifespan and grow up faster than the races in the trailverse even though it started out with elen being older than the mc, one day the mc will already be an adult while elen is still a teen/kid
Yeah, Elen will age a lot more slowly than MC -- though I imagine he'd never view them any differently from when he met them. They'll always be his younger nibbling, they just age 'weird'. At some point in MC's life Elen will be old enough (read: mature) to decide he might like to find a way to increase mc's lifespan, whether or not this would work would depend on how old mc is and/or what Elen is doing at that time. Although dabbling with magic in the Trailsverse is usually pretty dangerous and discouraged so... *sweats*
TLH doesn't have any bad endings planned (yet) but, uh, all the characters will probably outlive the mc. Which is... a lot sadder than I thought asdasd
I admit this started as a warm up but then I made the mistake of listening to ‘so close’ again whilst drawing it and OOPS
That last chapter was so bittersweet; and I loved the inclusion of the song! I’d never heard it before so listening to it as the scene played out just made it come alive - so much so, that the ending hit me like a punch to the GUT.
I was trying to add to the submission itself, but Tumblr wasn’t letting me. EDIT: Wait, I figured it out! Aha.
Anyway, THANK YOU SO, SO MUCH!!! I love this so much!! I wanted to ask if you, @mickules, would mind if I share it in the story itself? Like, at the end of chapter 29? I’d give credit, of course. This is amazing!
Deliciously convoluted horror story involving a romance wherein there is a person who grows plants in their body AND a person who is, to some degree, elevated to a position of religious worship in a non-cult manner.
