Disclaimer: I typed this up at like 4 AM so I am running on overdrive, and as a result this "letter" thing is extremely weird. Please excuse the strangeness that emits from the following message. I promise, I am not that weird in real life. At least, I hope not!! <3  Y-so-srs 


Happy birthday Kristy!! How old are you now? 7? Oh, plus 10? Okay... You don't look 17, stupid. Seriously, you are the splitting image of every little chinese elementary girl. How are you so baby-faced?! IS YOU IMMORTAL? GIVE ME DAT SORCERERS STONE PLZ SENPAI!

Ahem. In all seriousness, I hope you have a great birthday :) And I hope you enjoy the presents I bought you and this thing that I drew for you! IT IS SYMBOLIC. Ahem (again). Allow me to explain:

Imagine that we are living in a fantasy world where beautiful people with naturally blue/green hair exist and those earrings don't cost a thousand dollars and pure white butterflies without heads or bodies are real (LOL srsly it just looks like a flying pair of wings because i shoved the brightness up to like 500% I literally did a few rounds of just image>adjustments>brightness/contrast>brightness100%>OK>repeat. LOL. And then I removed the antennaes because they just looked awkward on a pure white butterfly xD). ANYWAYS. Pretend that is the world we are living in. Pretend I am that pretty girl because hey, why not. So where are you? Nowhere? Yes. Precisely. Jackpot. That's my message, yes. You don't belong in the picture, Kristy. I want you out of my life.

LOLLLL JUST KIDDING. (♫ So baby don't goooooooo ♫ )  [EXO] Sehun Emoticon 

You are the butterfly. Why? Because you're a frickin glittering rainbow unicorn pony fairy of awesomeness which is obviously represented by its royal mascot, the white butterfly. Nah, I'm just kidding. Do you see that ray of light? Notice how the butterfly is in the middle of it, as if descending from the heavens. Okay. Now here is the moment of truth: you are the butterfly because you represent (if you haven't clicked the pieces together in your baby-faced head and realized where I'm getting at yet, then you're slower than Pewdiepie when he gets jump scared. LOL<3) HOPE! (yes that's the title of this drawing lololol) You represent hope.

YOU ARE MY REPRESENTATION OF "HOPE" BECAUSE:  you are the only person who gets me thinking that maybe, just maybe, humanity isn't totally lost. That you know, it has a chance to be saved. Sike! We're weird af. I don't think we're exactly a bonus to humanity xD Lol no, to me you represent the hope that maybe eternal friendship isn't a lie :) That maybe it's something real. I always hear stories or watch movies about two friends who are literally friends forever, but I never really believed that kind of stuff. Until you! Because although you and I haven't been friends since we were fetuses (fetii? What's fetus plural?) we definitely did get close real fast, and we have a lot in common ^^ Both liking Kpop was definitely a huge plus too, because before you and STAR (Stephanie Tanaell Amima Raima) happened, I literally didn't have any real friends. And nobody knew anything about my "true self", which basically revolves around kpop. You're one of the first people I have ever opened up to (my deepest darkest secrets include those smutty fics and kpop fantasies and ships and #lovelivethegay and why am I even writing this on dA omg what if my sister sees this!! CAROL IF YOU'RE READING THIS.. Please don't think I'm insane)!

-realization hits that this is a public website and anyone can see this, including my entire family and the rest of the world-


Neko Emoji-37 (Yay) [V2] 

To sum things up, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! And congratulations! You represent the hope that maybe eternal friendship is something that is possible, and I hope that we can achieve that together! Also sorry I haven't been on Facebook lately because I've been busy, and also because I'm trying to limit the amount of internet and Facebook I use and etc. I'm gonna start using FB again now lol so we can chat again XD Also we must hang out sometime soon!!! What about registration day?! PLZ. Anyways I hope you like the presents I got you and the drawing and my loveeee and have a great birthday!!! LOVE YOU! BYEEE ~ <3 Taekook1  Why Abs Jhopr Uu  Chunji (Teen Top)

This looks beautiful. I love her hair, and the expression on her face. :meow:

Looking up the light of hope. Eh, not bad, I dig this :D
Her hair looks fantastic and flows rather well :la:
I also like the little details on her clothes.
She seems a bit shocked, though. I wonder why that could be.
Good work on that lighting :dummy:

I really like the texture on her skin, it looks really good on her ^^ Her hair looks beautiful, very flowy and the color of it fits her skin quite nicely :)
Love the "glossy" look on her lips and how her eyes just lit up as it looks up into the light source!

I love the detail you've put in her and her skin and her color blue making her look spectral, your attractive image fills me with joy I love your look

I like the way you've colored her hair and how it looks so flowy as well as the lighting and the skin like texture for her skin.

Well, the world would be more interesting if blue was a natural hair colour. :D (Big Grin) 
Looks pretty awesome.

Definitely! I wish I had naturally blue hair~ If I could get it done permanently I would, but unfortunately all hair dyes available to us atm will gradually fade / wash out :X
