The Lights Burn Blue - It is now 'Dead' Midnight by ceilonn The Lights Burn Blue - It is now 'Dead' Midnight by ceilonn
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. :)

This doesn't scare me away, it's quite beautiful!

And I feel your pain about being unnoticed. While other artists here put out one drawing and get thousands of views instantly, others have to work very hard just to get their art out into people's eyes.

You're very talented. Never think you aren't. :heart:

Woah. Just woah. This is creepy...but in a way that made me zoom in and look at EVERYTHING :D
I really don't feel "fear" or things like that out if this. What I'm getting is the point beyond fear and sadness and basically emotions and all that's left is this desperate/deranged animal in a cage trying to cling to something. The shinigami William just looks really flustered and tormented, like all the memories just got thrust back into him. Idk. Too much? Sorry if it is, this just made me think a lot, heheh.
That's how great this is.
Dawww, don't feel unappreciated!

Yeah it's not intended to be really scary, but you've got the feelings spot on, both from the child William and the shinigami.
William had closed all that away in a deep reserve in his mind and it's just thrust upon him.
Definitely not too much, I really wanted people to think deeply into this picture. So I'm really glad!

Poor William, (reminded me of a fanfic, but for the uncle cruel [uncle bastard])
I noticed a teddy bear, and various writings on the walls which reminded me of some salad fingers:

Yeah, I think they, or should I say, we are interested because Toboso-sensei didn't give us any clue about this and it's (for me) really great experience to listen diffrent versions of William or shinigami's past.
Of course I, as person who loves this character and role-play him, have my own vision which I use, but I really like to read others.
Sorry for my poor English... hope you'll understand what I'm trying to say ^^"
