Arien and Tilion - How the Moon loves the Sun

I drew a little thing for valentines and I am surprisingly happy with it! ^^

Arien and Tilion are one of the many fascinating stories of Tolkien and I felt it was appropriate to draw them, as I always have wanted and yet never got around to do. I quite like this, their faces and the design, however slightly inspired by art nouveau. I’m not usually uncomfortable with this style but for once I am very happy with it.

I wanted to colour it but I have no patience for that tonight, maybe some other day, if you want me to.

What do you think?

“Okay, Y/N, close your eyes. I’m giving you your gift now.” 

I closed my eyes, slightly giggling, as I held out my hands. I could only imagine what Sirius got me. We were best friends and had decided to be Valentine dates since neither of us had one. I was cut off from thought by Sirius’s lips crashing against mine. Startled, I kissed him back. The warmth from his hand was radiating off onto my cheek. Before I knew it he pulled away.

“Sorry, Y/N. I know- I know, you probably don’t want to be more than friends. I know we did this because we hate Valentine’s Day and we were supposed to get each other funny gifts but I couldn’t help–” 

I cut him off by leaning up on my tippy toes and placing my lips against his.  

“I’ve wanted you to do that for so long, Sirius. This is the best gift you could have given me.”
