This is plain and simply awesome. I wish I'd found this around Remembrance Day! As is, I don't suppose I could ask if I could upload it to the albums of a Facebook fan page I admin called Mass Effect Female Shepard - [link] - ready for next year? I'd include reference to you as artist and link to your original here.

It's a really nice concept... Seeing the image through thoughts as it were. Novel and nice touch.

Thanks, I don't think that I have ever heard of Remembrance Day though.

And you have my permission to upload my fanart. The more people who see my stuff, the more happier I am. ;-)

November 11th I think. Originally it marked the end of World War 2 I think, but as the 'war to end all wars' turned out not to end all wars, people since turned it into a general "Remembrance Day", typically with a minutes silence, always at 11am on 11th of the 11th Month (because that's when the war ended).

It's kinda a day to remember anyone you've ever known who lost their life in the course of war, fighting it, defending from it, or just as a casualty of it, and of course people add in a thought for any other 'heroes' they may have known. So for some people it's to remember fallen comrades, or fallen friends who believed in what they fought for, for others its for people who gave their lives to save others - for any reason at any time then or since... For others it's for the loss of loved ones as victims of war ... and for others the same thing but in fact just loss in general.

The nice thing about it, is that over the years since the war ended, there has been a growing sentiment that the day should be for all - no side holds exclusive rights to it. In other words, the tradition is now shared by people who fought on both sides of that war, and who became friends afterwards. Similarly, they spread the sentiment to younger people, encouraging them to think not only of the friends and family lost on their side of a conflict, but for those of 'the enemy' - whoever that enemy happened to be at the time.

Loss is something that can bring people together, or at least the acceptance that we all lose something dear to us, at some point in our lives, and that in this we can all appreciate how someone else feels, no matter what other differences exist that may divide us. :)

Oh and thank you very much for letting me share. I'll look forward to posting it next remembrance day, or maybe before if I have a heroic story to share, or something tragic happens and I want to inspire people to remember good things, and to value what they have lost if it were something truly worth being sad about. :)

LOL hope I didn't bore you to tears with that mini-essay! Anyway, your piece will suit that day perfectly next time it comes around.

Of course... we're due a supercomet visitation sometimes around then so... if our predictions turn out wrong and it *doesn't* miss us, I may not get the chance to share! LOL XD

After the last doomsday predictions, I think that we are in the clear. ;-)
