Henry/Elizabeth + modern au,  after katherine’s birth

The heart monitor provided a slow beat, the only sound besides the hum of other machines. The doctors there were pristine in white, and the whole damned place was too white, a parody of something pure or safe. His head resting on her lap, he stared at the tubes and wires sticking out of her arm, trying to make sense of it all –but it didn’t make sense. She was fine a week ago: rosy cheeks, eyes sparkling, glowing with her round belly where their (now gone) daughter was growing.
The life ebbed out her body now, her fingers turning each hours colder between his palms. He had asked for her physician to come and help -in vain. He had even prayed God -in vain. She was leaving...

Good evening, youffie. Here's a happy birthday shout out to you from California, where I'm still slogging through the work day. This is an excellent, emotionally compelling work. I have nothing to add to what's been said previously. I hope you celebrated well today, and that the celebration continues creatively every day of the year ahead.
Cheers and best regards,
Ed

Sadder this moment still, when you realize the newly-born Katherine died eight days after her birth—and one day before Elizabeth would herself die from a post partum infection. [link]

I can't get over how moving this is. They say a picture is worth 1,000 words, but sometimes, there are NO words.

I like this so much I can barely breathe, litterally. Not only for the soft balance of light and colors, not only for the composition and the poses, this is so so fine. The emotion you make us feel is so immediate and so strong, to me you don't have to change a dot.

Sorry for being so elogious but i am really overwhelmed.

Thank you for this, can't wait to see more

The details are amazing, the red and white roses in the vase (I'm not sure what the other flowers are) the wedding ring on Elizabeth's finger, I love the Modern AU of Henry/Elizabeth, I love all of your Henry/Elizabeth drawing, this picture is sad and yet I find it somewhat sweet, I'm not sure why, I know that's Elizabeth is dying, so why is it sweet? It's sad, depressing, Henry is about to lose the love of his life! Maybe I'm even more of a weird person than I thought, anyway, I adore this picture, so much.

Comme d'habitude, un dessin plein de sensibilité, de magie, d'émotion. Un talent dingue pour faire ressortir ce qu'il y a de meilleur dans le coeur des hommes. Je suis fan !

If you've never held someone as their soul left their body I highly recommend don't. It's a haunting, harrowing experience that you'll never be able to forget for as long as you live.
