Sleep well, my king. One day you will rise again. by Syllirium Sleep well, my king. One day you will rise again. by Syllirium
One day the Once and Future King will rise again but now it’s time to say goodbye…
Tumblr post - [link]

An entry for the «Drawn to Endings» Contest held by 'Live Action TV & Movie Art' [link]

I just imagined how later that night... the night Arthur died... Merthur looked up and there was a firm sign brougth up by fate itself that the Once and Future King will rise again one day...

"And he looked up above his head into a night pure sky and saw glowing stars weaving marvelous laces which shaped into dragon form eventually… dragon, Pendragon symbol, the boy realised… the sigh that the king of one and future will rise again… And for now it was time to say goodbye. But he knew, he was sure now he’ll see his king again, he was sure and not afraid anymore…"

Shit..... I'm cry now.... And the worst part's that I've done it to myself...
Also all these sadomasochistic vidmakers with their fascinating heartwrecking works... they're guilty too...
have you calmed down a bit yet?
Ok, then, you can hear this...
I was listening to Adele - Skyfall while drawing it...
Here you go, I'll even be so kind to provide its first lines to you:
"This is the end
Hold your breath and count to ten
Feel the earth move and then
Hear my heart burst again..."

*ugly sobs and cries over her own work*

No harm meant to be done, though it was done anyway in the end, which I’m really sorry about, but it just happened due to some terrific quensidence, I know you probably hate me right now, I hate myself, gosh! that’s not helping… is it?

Omg I broke myself now how do I put dear me back together?..

Aaargh, this is so amazingly gorgeous and so full of feels! The layout and colours are just incredible, I'm in love with the light, and with the wistful, farewell-themed peace that seems to surround Arthur on the boat. The glow of tears in Merlin's eyes is amazing! Agh, this whole piece is just breathtakingly beautiful - amazing job :D

It's beautiful. I remember I saw it a while back and went 'nope!'. But now, after months of reading nothing but Merthur fluff and comfort fics, my Merthur feels are not crushing me any more, and I can finally appreciate the beauty and magnificence of this piece. It's just gorgeous, good job!
