One Year by Shinkei-Shinto One Year by Shinkei-Shinto
I know you're reading this, if I didn't give you the link, you found it yourself, because you'll be "allowed" to go on my dA in just a few hours here.

I love you.

I don't know if you remember what I'm talking about, but the day before the show, before I'd said anything, there was a moment, in the main stage, where you were panicking and denying that you'd get on stage to preform.
And I stepped up on that little step for chairs, where we've removed an aisle, and grabbed your shoulders, and shook your sorry ass back and forth while simultaneously smacking my forehead against yours. I think the idea was to shake and beat some sense into you at the same time, I also sort of remember saying something.
I think that was the moment I fell in love with you. I think that was when something lit up, and somewhere in the back of my brain I knew I had to have you.

I love you. I love the way you look, talk, tease, make me laugh, tickle, smile. I love the way the light balances on your skin, I love the way you wear clothes, I love the way you look in, and out, of every piece of clothing you own. I love your laugh, your hiccups, the noises no one is supposed to hear that I always do. I love the way you wear your rings, and how you always remember to take them off when you get back, or when you get ready to sleep, or game, or do something. I love the way you accept all of my stupid gifts, even when it's something you most certainly do not need nor have room for. I love the way you say my name, when you use it at all, I love the nicknames and pet names you have for me.
I love when you irritate me, and even though yes, it does get to me sometimes, I still love you. Even when you're tickling me, even when you somehow manage to twist me so that I can't get away, even when you're doing something that just annoys me beyond reason, I love you.

It's been hard. 460 miles of tear ridden, distance hard. But, we made it. It's been a year. More than a year since I met you, more than a year since you appeared as an actor, more than a year since you took me along to get ice cream, and we ended up alone at a yogurt shop.
It's almost been a year since I kissed you for the first time, and you peeled out of the parking lot. It's almost been a year since you walked on stage for the first time and preformed amazingly. Almost been a year since I sat in the shop and spoke every line along with you, because doing it backstage was annoying everyone else. By the time you read this, it will have been a year.

A year.
It's astounding, it's fantastic, and I know I've got more years to look forward to.
And one of these days there won't be 460 miles between us for most of the year, one of these days I'll get to wake up next to you and see you wake up - or have you wake me up in that sweet, adorable way of yours. One of these days I'll be there to hit you for bad habits, to be swept up in your arms, or pulled down on the bed next to you to cuddle while you kick ass in whichever game has captured your interest.
One of these days, if you take too damn long, I will kneel in front of you and say the magic words. So don't take too long.
That is a threat, by the way.

I love you. I'm probably saying too much, and I can't say I really care.
I've put more hours into this piece than probably the last ten pieces I've done combined. I've worked and tried my best, and I'm really rusty on a lot of things, and I decided not to include his mane, which seems a bit awkward, but probably only because I'm used to it.
You'll pry be the only one to get most of the references and symbolism in this, and I really hope you like it. I really hope you like it, and you can see it, and you enjoy it and I'm going to babble now so I'm just going to shut up.

The point of telling you not to come onto dA was so that I could ask my friends to draw something for us, so it'd be a surprise.
These are those pieces:

I own everything. Bug off.

It does, it does, really because it reminds me that we made it that far and against everyone else we're still here
And that there are people like you who care <3
And it helps
so much
It's an amazing love you guys share~It's always nice to be able to find someone who has that love and to thus realize it IS attainable, sometimes it just takes longer than we'd like ;)

Happy Anniversary you two... you seem like just the sweetest. I wish you all the best in the future, really I do <33

And I'm really sorry I didn't draw anything, but I haven't touched my tablet in a week; artblock. So I hope my thoughts and words will count for something in stead XD
