From Where You Are by CalamityChemist From Where You Are by CalamityChemist
"So far away from where you are
These miles have torn us worlds apart.
And I miss you
Yeah, I miss you
So far away from where you are
Standing underneath the stars.
And I wish you were here...
I miss the years that were erased
I miss the way the sunshine would light up your face.
I miss all the little things
I never thought that they'd mean everything to me
Yeah, I miss you
And I wish you were here..."
-From Where You Are, Lifehouse

Here's a piece I did on a whim, after listening to a good deal of flowery music that I'd dug out of the recesses of my iTunes. It's (supposed to be, but probably looks nothing like) Alphonse, in his human form, thinking about his brother after his disappearance. This, of course, is him later on, when he starts wearing his hair and clothes like his older brother. I think that's part of the confusion: because of how he's dressed and the length of his hair, he looks more like a really badly-drawn Edward than Alphonse, which was an error on my part. Edward is, of course, in the picture: up in the sky (MUFASA STYLE YO). I had hoped that inluding him would make it clear that Alphonse was...Alphonse. Instead, I was asked, 'Why did you draw Edward twice?' So that didn't quite work out. Sad day. Regardless, I think the picture has a nice, sappy, nostalgic effect.

Is this from the original series? I keep seeing Al looking like Ed and everything so it's confusing me. O_o

Rewatched the series for the fourth time and got to CoS and all I could do was curl up. Their story is everything.

So beautiful! I love the stars and Alphonse' tears. "I had hoped that inluding him would make it clear that Alphonse was...Alphonse. Instead, I was asked, 'Why did you draw Edward twice?'" No! Anyone who has watched all of Fullmetal Alchemist will understand. :)

Sad that people can't tell them apart from each other. I could clearly see that Al was Al. :/ I think it's a very beautiful drawing. Very emotionally. <3

(Btw, I knew it was Al. You did them both where it's easy to tell. :D)
