Failed To See... by Mizu-no-Akira Failed To See... by Mizu-no-Akira
OMG o.o... I'm really sorry, I wanted to upload this on friday ( as I always do) but I'm stuck with loads of work at the moment -_-' I hate that.
But now to the pic: Some of you know, that I never read more than the first series of the Warriors books. But now I really feel like giving the following series a second chance. I got a little curious about Ashfur, 'cause dA is full of pictures of this scene from "Long Shadows". So here's my illustration of the scene, when he steps between Squirrelflight and her, or better Leafpool's kits, to kill them in the fire and let Squirrelflight suffer as much as he did. Most pics on dA show him with an evil grin on his face, I don't know if he really did smile in the books, but I believe, that it wasn't satisfying for him to tell his love about his feelings and how his love finally turned into a torture for him, because she never loved him back the way he loved her. What finally turned his love to hate, and what let him decide to kill somebody close to Squirrelflight. I think it was quite hard for him, too :/ Eventhough it's quite psychopathic to be like "Okay, you don't love me and it hurts me so much, that I'll kill someone close to you, so you'll feel as bad as I do."... It's like an eye for an eye :(

Anyways, I hope you like it :) I think I'll do some more Ashfur fanart in the future... just because I loved the quote "His only fault was to love too much." :3
Oh and I felt really inspired for this pic by the song "Your Love Will Kill Me" by Daniel Lavoie. Take a look at it on Youtube ;) Here are some lines from the songlyrics:

I feel a wave of passion
Move through my heart with such pain
I have no time to reason
So I just let passion reign

I let go so easily
On a night as warm as sin
Midnight swimmer, midnight sea
I will not come back again

Your love will kill me
Your love will kill me
And you will bear my curse
As long as my life will be

Your love will kill me
Your love will kill me
And I saw it would be
When I looked at you
When you looked at me

Your love will kill me
Your love will kill me
Your love will kill me

My sin and my obession
Crazy desire you bring
I know there's no salvation
I see our bodies burning

Your gypsy dreams all haunt me
I live to see your dances
Please raise your eyes and want me
Please give me all the chances


You brought the spring time to fill
My heart in its winter chill
I lost my strength and my will
And now my tears start to spill

I never knew such desire
Just looking into your eyes
And now the soul in me cries
And now the night is on fire


Your love will kill me...
