Teruki: Hanahaki Disease
I’m try out a couple different sketching styles cause I don’t have a very good one at the moment :’D
I’m not a huge fan of Hanahaki because the idea you’ll die if someone doesn’t return your love is a bit melodramatic for me. Is it painful to not be loved? Of course. Is it going to kill you? Well. So I think the real danger of not letting go of those types of feelings is that they dig deep inside you until it breaks something and you end up hurting the person you supposedly love.
I was also chatting with @hydrachea about the idea that the plant would differ depending on the way that person loves and the pain they feel. I gave Teruki the Kudzu vine. Invasive, possessive, strangles and kills everything around it, pretty flowers. Sounds like Teruki.
