Heart's Desire by Karzahnii Heart's Desire by Karzahnii
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]

Huh. Wasn't expecting that ending. I do like how this is about them being in love rather than the freaky dragon sex, which is disturbingly popular amongst Sparity shippers.

So, did she like, slip some Heart's Desire into his food, or does the heart's desire let you know who you love when you taste it? How does it work in this comic?

It gets me, but reading and watching the show. Especially in Manifest Destiny. Spike is deep in the friend zone. and he knows it.

I believe you mean inspiration manifestation. Manifest Destiny was the term used to explain the United States' "desire and right" to acquire every bit of land between the two oceans that border it.

Great scout... I was just listioning to this theme while reading this www.youtube.com/watch?v=9BuPBQ… and it fits! I read it a bit to hastily though, so I couldn't really... feel it... as much... so, perhaps maybe after another read, then maybe I'll come back with something longer. Wish I coulda' read this on Valentines. Perhaps for now, I'll think about the moral. Again, there will be more from me on the next read. So see ya then!

~All My Best
