Happy Birthday - Time Travel by llawll Happy Birthday - Time Travel by llawll
Once upon a time, a very, very long time ago and in a very different place from here, there were two friends. One was a shy, polite little thing, but she was always happy to be around people she liked. The other was a bright, energetic soul, and he was always the first to extend the hand of kindness to anyone who seemed in need. Above all, they both loved stories and art more than anything. They were only just growing into an ebb and flow of familiarity, but thanks to the boy's open heart and patience, the girl was able to accept all this new love and friendship with open arms.

In the earlier stages of getting to know one another, the boy suggested an idea. Why not create a piece of art together? Surely we both love stories and art more than anything, and working together will help us become fast friends indeed. The girl happily agreed.

However, the girl was often silly and forgetful, as well as shy, and their piece of artwork never even flew off from its nest.

Years later, and the fires of time have forged a friendship of great and wondrous strength all on its own. But the girl never forgot, and one day she decided that what was once promised must be completed. And what better time for such a thing than on the boy's birthday?

And there you have it! What a silly little story, hm? I'm sorry — I just couldn't resist. This picture put me in the mood for something fanciful.

It's all true, of course! I promised to make the lineart for this collab almost three years ago, if you can imagine. Well, better late than never, hm?

Happy Birthday, Cole! You deserve a thousand and a thousand of the happiest birthdays imaginable. This is only a little tiny piece of what you deserve! I love you, hon <3

I still don't know how to compose my feelings long enough to type a co-herent comment on this jnfh
I've said it so many times, and I shan't tire of it, this is just so god danm gorgeous TT A TT The detail just has me foaming at the mouth and i love that all the little cakes are different and the teacups are different and the tea pot and the cane like.. nothing is just GENERIC. Everything was put thought into and it shows and god does it look good

And then of course don't even get me started on that mini story like
how is that not
the sweetest description possible
ITS TRUE but said in such a fanciful way that makes it lighter, happier, and 400% more adorable. I'm super glad we got to know each other, and became close friends over these 3 years 8 v 8 Thank you so much Fei <33 And please continue to tolerate my over-abundance of affection as you always have ~

I think you're perfectly coherent. I'm just so thrilled that you like it (which I'm sure I've expressed plenty of times before). It seemed to me that if it was both a birthday gift AND a long overdue promise, then I owed it to make it the best lineart I could. I just feel bad that you have to color all this nonsense, eventually |D;;;

// oh hush you shhush
"Tolerating" never comes into it uvu your "over"abundance of affection is wonderful and lovely and I love it.
