this hole where you and i will sing [Merlin/Arthur - G]  
Artist: ptelefolone // ptelly (Tumblr)
Title: this hole where you and i will sing
Pairing/Characters: Arthur/Merlin
Media: Digital (SAI + Photoshop)
Rating: G
Warnings: Implied character death
Prompt #: 43
Summary: OP requested fanart for the ending scene of this hole where you and i will sing, a gorgeous and heartbreaking A/M fic. I thought I couldn't possibly pack so much emotion into one illustration, so I tried my hand at a comic :) If you haven't yet, please read the fic first because the comic won't make much sense by itself. Hope you like it, OP! And I hope the fic author de-anons too, because it was seriously the most moving fic I'd ever read. ;_;

Have not read the fic, but unf, this is amazing!!!!

Ok, went back and skimmed the fic. GAh. Heartbreaking. It was written three years ago, so unlikely the author would de anon now:(

I haven't read the story yet, but I want to now, really want to. However, this actually makes perfect, heartbreaking sense to me, even without the fic it was written for.

Your style is just beautiful and the emotions are coming through crystal clear.

Thank you so much for sharing this with us!

This is SO beautiful! I love the limited color palette, and the way you use the blue to highlight the emotion and hope in this fantasy of theirs. Honestly, this brought me to tears! <3

STUNNING! And it works PERFECTLY for the fic.

I loved all the different viewpoints you used, the one looking up at the stormy sky through the telephone wires, and the one looking down on Arthur from above outside the shop.

I loved the stillness and completeness of the frame where Merlin has opened the door, and then Arthur's eyes...and you can feel what an impact the sight of him is having on Arthur.

And you caught the emotion of the fic beautifully, that last frame was heartbreaking.

Wonderful, beautiful work!

Ugh so loved the fic haven't read it since originally posted because you know the heartbreak. This is a wonderful accompanying piece and really does the story justice. Lovely thank-you.

THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE FICS, AND YOU HAVE CAPTURED THE ENDING SCENE PERFECTLY. I have no words about how wonderful this is because I'm getting hit by FEELS. But I love how you portray so much without going overboard, like Merlin reaching out, the expressions on their face, Arthur crying at the end... GAH ;-;

Okay, I'm bawling. I hate you SO much right now! (in an "I love you, but I can't *believe* you made me read such a sad sad fic!" kind of way...)

This is just lovely. So many emotions, so much sadness...and even a bit of hope for their next life together...

Brava, Anon.

I saw this before I read the fic and thought it was gorgeous. I've read the fic and now all I want to do is cry. Wonderful job! :)

This story is so heartbreaking and the art is a perfect complement. I can't believe how gorgeous every single frame is. Every single one. So atmospheric and loaded with feelings. I could look at this all day, it's absolutely incredible. You're amazing. Thank you so much for reminding me about this story and for sharing this gorgeous art with us. ♥ ♥ ♥
