And You Let Her Go... by Mizu-no-Akira And You Let Her Go... by Mizu-no-Akira

Only know you love her when you let her go

And you let her go
And you let her go

-"Let Her Go" by Passenger


Next part of my picture-series to the song "Let Her Go" by Passenger :) I wanted to draw this scene for a very long time now.. but I never felt...well...sad enough. This is a Silverstream x Greystripe pic, and I really liked this couple. So I was nearly crying when I first read that scene, one year ago. :( 'Cause in my opinion this was one of the most tragic love-stories from the first series, right after that Spottedleaf x Fireheart x Sandstorm thing.

Anyways, I hope you like the pic. I struggled with the perspective for a while, because there was no perspective that'd fit the situation. :/
Next pic will be either Sandstorm after Firestar's death or Yellowfang's death... what do you think should be next?^^

Fair enough. I don't either, usually. Still tho, for some reason Silverstream's death hit me hard. The only other time was at the end of The Apprentice's Quest when the two kits got seperated... ;-;

This is the relationship that got me interested in the book series (I was about ready to put it down when Greystripe and Silverstream became a thing).  They were always my favorite couple. 

This is very lovely, excellent work!

Only need the light when it's burning low

Only miss the sun when it starts to snow

Only know you love her when you let her go

Only know you've been high when you're feeling low

Only hate the road when your missing home'

Only know you love her when you let her go

This was one of the most tragic endings and the one that made me want to rip the pages from my book (again)

Its getting late and I, cannot seem to find my way home, tonight.
Feels like I am falling down a rabbit hole, falling for forever, wonderfly wandering alone.
What would my head feel like, if not for my shoulders or without your smile, may it follow you forever,
May it never leave you, to sleep in the stone, may we stay lost on our way home?
