Happy birthday, my friend by Alyx-XCV Happy birthday, my friend by Alyx-XCV

Dear Friend,

We met during an embarrassing time of my life, but I could say the same to you. I remember I was envious of your hair sooooo much. But that's probably why I gave it to you. The same about your wardrobe. Sorry about that. Hope you like your shirt though, it's kinda symbolic though! I thought it'd be kinda cool to keep it (even though it looks like Blink-182, I didn't even realize that). Besides, I think it suits you.

I'm sorry I haven't drawn you much at all the past few years. I promise I haven't forgotten you. We're like Andy and Woody. You're still always my favorite, and you mean the most to me. I've grown up a lot, I've completed high school. But you know that already don't you? I mean, you've been on nearly all my tests and notebooks. I miss drawing you. Now all I can do is.. doodles and sketches.. and commission other people to draw you, but it's not the same. They don't draw you the way I do. They don't see you the way I do. They don't know you the way I do. I wish I could do full art of you again. I really miss it. I'm so caught up with commissions now. It's funny.. back when you dominated my gallery, I could barely get commissions. Maybe for points.. but now, it's unbelievable how far I've come. I know you're proud. I wanted to thank you though. I would've never gotten this far. I probably wouldn't even be an artist if it weren't for you. You opened my imagination. You gave me the opportunity to become an artist. You were my tortured test subject for years as I practiced drawing daily.

I look back and laugh at how goofy I made you look. But look at you now. It's unbelievable how much you've changed, but stayed my same ole emo-lookin fox boy, You went through as many bad phases as I did. Remember when you were a trap? I drew you in skirts and all that shit. Hahah, the girls loved it though. You were cute. You still are cute. Cute, handsome, whatever you like being called, or drawn so to speak.

It's been 9 years. It feels like a long time to be with someone. I'm glad I never let you go. I'm glad I never let you fade out and become forgotten like the rest. I could never forget you though. Ever. You've always been there. Through my best and worst times. You were there to listen to my problems and catch my tears under my pencil. You listening to everything that was never said, because you knew it all, you felt it all.

You were happy when I was, you helped me improve, you helped me meet amazing people and make friends. People love you, but not as much as I do. You mean a lot to me. I wish you could read this. I wish I could hear a response. I wish you knew how much you meant to me. I don't care what other people think or say, you're not just a character to me, Enro. Happy Birthday. 

TL;DR it's enro's birthday. here's a compilation to celebrate (ones you guys prob already saw)…

You know this really made me think about my characters pretty hard. You don't seem to stop and think about how they've been there for you. My oldest character Angel is only 6 years old, but that's probably why I haven't been able to change his name LOL

I intend to make them as alive as I can someday.

I totally feel you man...My character Torikai was made back in mid-2004...To carry someone with you for so long, to nurture them and be almost always thinking about them. They went to school with you. They watched movies and stayed in bed with you when you were sick. They slowly changed over the years. Getting brighter and better. And you know they are always there.

...Thank you for sharing Enro with us. I'm happy other people like you are around who know what it's like to experience this kind of connection. In a way, these people are real, because they've changed and influenced us in very real areas of our lives, just as we have changed and influenced them. I looked at Enro and read this...and I could just feel the kinship. I wish you and him the continued best.
