in the shadow of your hearts by mementomoryo in the shadow of your hearts by mementomoryo
I took the stars from my eyes and then I made a map
I knew that somehow I could find my way back
Then I heard your heart beating
You were in the darkness, too

So I stayed in the darkness with you


Whoever chose Florence + The Machine's "Cosmic Love" as the trailer music for Series 5 knew what they were doing. I only found this song a few days ago, and I've fallen in love with it, but not just because it's a beautiful song. I think it accurately reflects the bond (romantic or not) that Amy and the Doctor share, particularly as it was in Series 5.

BTW, I do want Amy and Rory to be happy together, more than anything. I just find Amy and Eleven's relationship more fascinating in general. :)

Pencils, watercolors (fine and opaque), calligraphy ink, and Copics (used minimally) on hot press watercolor paper.

I find their relationship to be more like a father-daughter one (once you get past the fact she tried to......*ahem* the Doctor ^^; ). He knew her as a child and when he sees her grown-up he tries the same jokes and stories to make her smile, but she doesn't react the same way to them.

Maybe that's just me :XD:

To your credit, I saw the artwork before reading your description or the title, and thought "Goddamn, it looks like something out of a Florence Welch song."

So I guess there's that. I'm not usually a fan of rainbow-bright artwork, but you balanced out the saturations nicely, and it comes off as harmonios and vibrant rather than an eyesore. Kudos. And congrats on the DD!
