Late for Valentine's Day!
This is the finished comic from the sketches I posted back in December. The actual drawing took only around a week, but it took a lot more editing - there are numerous endings I didn't use, but I won't bring them up (they weren't used for a reason). I ended up deciding on one that stuck the most to the original theme and made sense. There are probably some continuity errors, or even debate as to whether the Heart's Desire works like that; I'm aware, but just enjoy it for what it is. How about that?
The Little Prince and Up were my main inspirations.
EDIT 1: In just a day, this hit my most viewed, commented, and favourited piece. Thank you for amazing feedback! I'm glad it touched so many people. Also, I have reuploaded it with very slightly altered to text to hopefully avoid a bit of confusion it caused earlier.
EDIT 2: Interested in seeing how this was made? [link]
