The Valkyrie's Vigil, by English painter Edward Robert Hughes (1906)
During the first world war, I fell in love with a boy for the first time he was in my regiment, eighteen and clean-shaven, he could never grow a beard I don’t think I could love a man with a beard, gruff barbarians, cleanly and handsome he was I don’t remember how it all began maybe it was being on the edge of death every damn day that pushed us over, that we were nowhere and so was God.
The burnt bodies, ugliness, the crying and noise, it was just nice to see someone, pink and rosey for once, with a smile bright like the sun even as his lips cracked and his ribs poked through his jacket, always he was heavy in my arms and his kisses, sharing cigarettes, hunting the enemy, blood smeared, trying to find somewhere quiet being relieved finally, he kept me from madness, maybe we really were lost though never forgetting home. Everything is so different, like a second death without really dying, what would be more of a surprise returning home to our safe Europeans homes. You were lucky, it was like the war never happened here.

mercy had been drifting in between sleep and wakefulness, lulled into a state of relaxation as she snuggled further into cloud’s chest amidst the sea of plush blankets and pillows. it was why, at first, she was certain that she’d dreamed such a thing, the man she loved confessing such things to her in the darkness of her cabin. but as her awareness became a bit sharper and she realized that she was, indeed, awake, the redhead shifted to gaze up at him for a moment before letting out a soft noise of acknowledgement.
she could understand what he meant, and, honestly, she felt the same way. funny how someone could walk into your life and fuck all of that up for you though. not that she was going to complain; for as rough of a road as it had all been mercy couldn’t say she wanted to trade it for anything else in the galaxy. she had come to rely on him, depend on him, and couldn’t imagine doing this with anyone else.
“i never thought i’d find anyone in this galaxy that could put up with me, let alone care about me. so... i get it.”
she sat up and ran her fingers through her hair, feeling awkward and a little silly; talking about her feelings never came easy to her. she was used to defaulting to anger, to shouting, when things got too intense. but that... didn’t seem like the right solution here. so she’d settle for tugging at a long, wavy strand of hair for a moment before turning back to look at him again.
“i’m... really glad we found each other. there’s no one else i want with me. i love you.”

Howdy friends 😃 just a little heads up, I'll probably be posting more sketches/process photos since school has started and there's lots of projects to be done ✨ one of these projects involves abject painting so I will be posting my creepy/horror inspired art too. I'll try to remember to put potential trigger warnings before these pieces incase someone is sensitive to stuff like body horror. But!! I will continue with my critters and plant art 😁 I'm going to have the botanical illustrations of the dandelion and the clover up on Etsy soon if you'd like to check them out ❤️ I'll keep you updated and thank you for all your support ✨ for now, enjoy this gif of me painting some long fingers 👌
New set of brushes, new painting study.
Thinking of them and their reunion 🥺
