To Love Something Despite by Kurogane-sensei To Love Something Despite by Kurogane-sensei
“My parents danced together, her head on his chest. Both had their eyes closed. They seemed so perfectly content. If you can find someone like that, someone who you can hold and close your eyes to the world with, then you're lucky. Even if it only lasts for a minute or a day. The image of them gently swaying to the music is how I picture love in my mind even after all these years.”


I Fucking love The Name of the Wind. I really hope this drawing is enough to honour it.

This is fantastic. When I'm feeling low on Kingkiller and need a fix, but can't for whatever reason read the books, I keep coming back to your art. Lovely.

:iconcriesplz: Everytime I think of Kvothe's parents I think of what happened to them...
On the other hand, this is one of my favorite lines in the book. ^^ Such a beautiful drawing to go with it.
