If you forget the way to go
And lose where you came from
If no one is standing beside you
Be still and know I am

Title: Be Still
Characters: Keith, Allura (Kallura, Voltron: Legendary Defender)
Media: Adobe Sketch, iPad Pro, Photoshop, Wacom
Notes: Inspired by the song “Be Still” by The Fray (track 5 on this fan mix I made for Kallura week) and that beautiful scene at the end of VLD 3.04 where Keith goes to comfort Allura. It was so soft and probably one of my favorite scenes from the season. Their aesthetic is clearly being together in front of beautiful space background and that’s all I’m going to be drawing for the foreseeable future.

Dov'eri,
quando tutto stava crollando?
Tutti i miei giorni passati
vicino a quel telefono
che non suonò mai,
tutto ciò di cui avevo bisogno
era una chiamata
che non è mai arrivata.
—  The Fray
“Suddenly you’re 21 and screaming along in your car to all the songs you used to listen to when you were sad in middle school and everything is different but everything is good.”

I turned 13 in 2008. The Myspace era was coming to a close and Facebook became the new preferred social media platform. The music I had found in my preteen and early teen years majorly shaped my current music taste at 21 years old. Like for most people, middle school and high school were not easy times. The music that I came across on Myspace and the early YouTube years reflected the real emotions and struggles that I faced. It made me not want to only listen to songs like Gold Digger, Ms. New Booty, Smack That, My Humps, I Kissed a Girl, or whatever else was playing everywhere. I craved music that I could relate to. I needed music with true emotion behind it. 

Anyways, here are the songs that got me through my preteen and early years and shaped who I am today. They’re in no particular order.
