And I would suffer it all again
if it meant I could one more time
lick the golden morning light from your skin like honey
and melt like a candle against your heat,
all yielding and smelling of softness,
all yours and yours and yours.
I would suffer anything again
if it meant I could come home to you.
—  Excerpt from Meekly // Alexis Danae

hasuyawwn, DO YOU KNOW. HOW MUCH I WANTED TO TELL YOU I WAS DRAWING THIS. But Alexie was like “noooo it must be a surPRISE or else I’ll sink your ship!” and so I held back. Very, very, very reluctantly.

And then she was like “you should wait until you see us next week,” but I can’t do it. Nope. Here. Look at it as I sob here in the corner.

I know, anything I can draw you can draw better, but… but… accept my humble offering of a late birthday gift, okay?


I’ll do better next year, I swear. OTL
