The Lights Burn Blue - It is now 'Dead' Midnight by Keiichou The Lights Burn Blue - It is now 'Dead' Midnight by Keiichou
Despair and Die

So basically this is from the backstory I created for William (which came together in my wonderful WillxRon RP with :iconpiefacemcgee: <3)

He's visiting the basement that he was held captive (by his cruel uncle) and eventually starved to death in as a child.
this starvation serves as the root for his EDNOS as a shinigami.
yeah I really should write out his backstory properly sometime.

creeptime <3

Secretly always been awaiting the day I could use lines from Shakespeare in my artwork title

ugh I have been feeling so unappreciated as an artist lately sob i want to be noticed
but maybe stuff like this scares people away

Thankyou! That's definitely what I was going for. I honestly think it allows so much more room for character development. Thanks for your comment, I really appreciate it :'D

Best. Backstory. For. William. EVER. Oh my gosh, if that was written out .. jkaljfksdfjafkslj I would die of happiness.
I never thought of William having EDNOS as a shinigami. Is that in a story somewhere? That's an interesting idea~

Just ... this whole piece has a dark and sad feeling to it. It makes me feel so much for poor William. You really captured his pain well. Both of their expressions ... perfection. I just want to save poor little Will~

Lastly, *pokes you with a stick* don't worry. I know this is old, and I hope your confidence in yourself has risen. Because you are a really amazing artist. After talking to you, I've been creeping through your page and just admiring all your amazing art ... I am falling in love with it even more than before. Your work is unique and recognizable, and I believe you are gaining many more fans by the day. Your arts are much deeper than many Kuroshitsuji artists I see. So even if some may be more 'popular', know that I believe that your work is of much more substance.
I'm sorry for that horrible jumble of words:iconsobbplz:

oh wow I am so in love with your comments XD They're absolutely brilliant.

I'm so happy to hear you like his backstory! Most people would be deterred by the idea of him having EDNOS. It's not an actual story, but it's from a WilliamxRonald RP. So yeah basically he starved to death, and that was the root cause of an eating disorder. Future events made it worse (it has nothing to do with trying to lose weight btw) and even developed it into anorexia at some points, but he gets better with help from Ronron and becomes strong and happy again~ <3

Doing dark, substantial art is much more fun than just simple drawings of characters, to me. I am glad you can feel something from looking at this! <3

:iconarmstrongtighthugplz:Gosh, I was afraid I was creeping you out with my comment spam. If you like them, I shall comment MORE! :XD: Your brilliant art makes it easy for me to make brilliant comments.

Oh, I see! I'm not deterred, I really do like the idea. I'd love to hear his story in greater detail.
I'm a sucker for hurt/comfort stories

Definitely! When you look at works like yours, you can just imagine really rich, detailed stories to go behind them as well as many questions. And they make you think and imagine. I love your style because you draw things that I find interesting, and the expressions and scenes the characters are in really set off my imagination. interpret that however you want I was new to the Kuroshitsuji fandom when I began drawing the characters. I hope within time, I can produce work that involves your kind of quality and thought. :)
