Sleep With The Fishes by BlueRoseArkelle Sleep With The Fishes by BlueRoseArkelle
"Hahaha sleep with the fishes, I get it! :iconmingplz:
...
...
Wait....
that means...
OH.
...oh.
....
I get it.
:iconcryforeverplz: "

---------------------

+10 to INT if you get it
//shot xD

My OC, Rem. He is a young boy

TwT Months later I finally finished this .....and my scanner killed it haha i'm going to go cry in the corner now :iconpapmingplz:
I had originally drew this for a one-day challenge a few months ago, but yeaaaaah that didn't happen. And then I got mad at it, like I do with a lot of my art, and shoved it in a folder where all sketches and lineart i'm mad at go to die xD //shot
Also Happy New Year!! QvQ
....this drawing has nothing to do with that though xD

T//3//T Err, but yeah. If you know about my OC, Rem, then yeah....i'm sorry for the sad feels. Right in the kokoro, I know. T//~//T


TwT I'll post the video for the coloring sometime in the next few days~

Saw your video on YouTube. I was looking for a video I could watch so I could "draw vicariously" instead of sitting at my desk all night drawing. Your video hit the spot and now I have a new favorite.

Is Rem named after REM sleep? Just a random question.

Very, very nice work, by the way! I love all of the violet.

doesnt sleeping with the fish mean he doesnt sleep at all, because fish really don't sleep. Neither does Rem for that matter... He feeds off of dreams, so he really doesnt "need" sleep.

SLEEP? WAT IS DIS "SLEEP" YOU SPEAK OF? :iconsnoreplz: :iconquestionplz:

xD Hahaha "Sleep with the fishes" is a metaphor for death. There are a few references or variants of the phrase used throughout classic literature, but is most commonly known from the movie "The Godfather". The phrase is now commonly used when someone is drowned maliciously or their body dumped in the ocean etc., but is also just another way to say that someone is dead.
In this case, it is a bit of cruel irony for Rem, because should he fall asleep he would "die". He also compares his existence to that of a goldfish in a fishbowl; a confined and torturous existence that he must continue living. So, because he relates his life to that of a fish and sleeping would essentially "kill" him, "sleeping with the fishes" has a bit of an extra poetically tragic meaning for him.

TwT Haha, its hard to explain, but easy to understand with context I hope~

Sleep with the fishes means to die...so, if Rem sleeps, something he should never do, it'd kill everyone else?
So that's why he can't allow himself to fall asleep o - o
Assuming I'm right and not just confused.
I have no idea what INT means :iconimsotiredplz:

:iconbluerosearkelle:
BlueRoseArkelle Featured By Owner Jan 3, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
TwT Haha, well not everyone. Its hard to explain without spoilery context, but if Rem sleeps, he basically would "die", and while as sad as it is to say that would be the ideal for him, he can't allow himself to do it because of an obligation that I cannot say, not because doing so would effect anyone other than "himself".
That doesn't make a lot of sense, but its the best way I can explain it without being overly spoilery xD

eve Oh and INT means "intelligence" btw. Intelligence (abbreviated as INT) is usually a statistic in classic RPG games, and sometimes knowing the solutions to questions and riddles grants you extra points in said stat. xD :iconthemoreyouknowplz:

TTwTT We watch the Arksnailian in its original habitat, going about its drawings at a very slow, snailish way that is only managed by the Arksnailian. However, slow as it is, it still manages to complete them. And completes them beautifully. After it completes them, it moves on to another, that was abandoned several forevers ago. And then presents them....9 months later.
