The drops of rain they fall all over
This awkward silence makes me crazy
The glow inside burns light upon her
I'll try to kiss you if you let me
(this can't be the end)

Tidal waves they rip right through me
Tears from eyes worn cold and sad
Pick me up now, I need you so bad

Down down down down
Down down down down
It gets me so

Your vows of silence fall all over
The look in your eyes makes me crazy
I feel the darkness break upon her
I'll take you over if you let me
(You did this)

Tidal waves they rip right through me
Tears from eyes worn cold and sad
Pick me up now, I need you so bad.


I've been wanting to do art for myself for awhile now(yes I drew everything on this even the background, that is not a photo) and what better to do then the very Rainshadow herself, she means so much more to me than Larka and it hurts so bad that people think I don;t draw her or think about her or anything anymore, she's still the same and has the same place in my heart.

When I listened to the song "Down" by Blink 182 this picture automatically popped into my head (I was also listening to a few other songs by Blink-182 that inspired this, like Asthenia and Stockholm Syndrome).

Basically this is Rainshadow falling through space (notice she has no curse marking on her muzzle and if her eyes were open they wouldn't have pupils does that to her). This represents a very crucial time in Rainshadow's life, her rebirth. When she is reborn the Celestial Spirit she really is she finds herself alone and new, a power brews within her that she has never felt before, she is confused and lonely so she simply decides to give up until her heart heals.

Art and Rainshadow (c) *CelestialWolfen Alyssa Stapleton and Rainshadow herself.

Lyrics: "Down" - Blink-182

Well, now you're just making me look silly. I saw that Nova one before this... ^^

They're both wonderful. I love the wings, they're perfectly floaty, like clouds. And the glow... All so lovely.
