“Apart” 2/19/2017

Some fan art for @kazliin‘s amazing YOI story Until My Feet Bleed and My Heart Aches. More specifically, it was inspired by this paragraph in chapter 12:

“Yuuri knew that it was how it had always been between them, brief moments of time together and then long periods apart, they lives, their worlds, separated by more than just distance. And he had accepted that, he had been content with that before. But now everything was different.”


I remember when I first met you. I hugged you and I didn’t want to let go.

We discovered new things.

Had fun.



Met new people.

I remember that you bought a dog, even though you didn’t want one. But you did it for me.

I remember your smiling face making me laugh for the last time.

And after all this time… I still remember you

And I will, until I will not be anymore.


I’ve been working on this backpiece for a year and some now, and I’m so excited to finally share it! Various stages of healed and fresh on my friend since high school, Chase, who is a champ. THANK YOU SO MUCH for trusting me with this!
