I remember tears streaming down your face
When I said I'll never let you go,
When all those shadows almost killed your light.
I remember you said, "Don't leave me alone"
But all that's dead and gone and past,
Just close your eyes,
The sun is going down.
You'll be alright,
No one can hurt you now.
Come morning light,
You and I'll be safe and sound.
Don't you dare look out your window,
Darling everything's on fire.
The war outside our door keep raging on.
Hold on to this lullaby,
Even when music's gone,
Gone. -Safe and Sound by Taylor Swift (ft. The Civil Wars)
These are two of my newest characters, Eva and her brother Roth, when they were young. Eva and Roth were inspired by the fact that many heroes and villains are actually siblings as well as enemies. They draw inspiration (Even in their names!) from many of these hero-villain sibling pairings.
This would be when they are still children, and Roth would comfort his sister in the times of war they were born in.
