Past Sins by grayma1k Past Sins by grayma1k
Past night is the sunrise.
Something you wasn't supposed to wish for.
Past sins is forgiveness.
Something you didn't hope to deserve.
Past fate is the love.
And the ones you desire to protect.

----

Obligatory tribute to Past Sins after finishing it.

I find it really funny that when I click on the hyperlink in the description, Deviantart warns me that "Out there be monsters." It's quite ironic regarding which fanfic you're linking to :D. BTW, great artwork!

This is a really beautiful and well made picture of Nyx/Nightmare Moon. I can practicly feel the cool night air, practicly see how she's going to move. The colors, the light and shadows, everything looks really well made and beautiful, as stated before.

Well done, grayma1k, well done indeed :)

Упавшая слезинка мне показалась сперва маленьким полумесяцем.

Ещё вернусь и отпишусь здесь, если у меня сложится с первоисточником.
А пока просто скажу, что отсветы на дальних башнях очень красивые.

This is so beautiful yet sad. Is that a ballista on the tower to the right?

Yes, some sort of a war machine, ballista most probably. Just had to add something like that to emphasize the contrast between peaceful view with Canterlot and Ponyville to the left and grim castle of Nightmare Moon in an overall bipolar composition of the picture. And her impulse towards... Well, that's obvious.

Oh. Really glad you liked this small token of gratitude.

Spent several evenings reading your story - and these were good ones. Just felt obliged to draw something in return.

Thanks for the kindness of it, as it is a thing often needed.

Просто я слегка удивлен, как человеку, который ценит Бэккера -- и произведение оного -- за его уникальность и глубину мысли, может понравится (и увлечь) мэйнстримовый (adjusts hipster's glasses; впрочем, я использую данное определение только потому, что хочу избежать лишней словесности с более точными и емкими определениям) Past Sins настолько, что аж вдохновит на фан-арт. Данные фанфики и аналогичные литературные произведение - то, от чего я, собсно, бежал и спрятался в мирах Бэккера и Мартина.

Впрочем, каждому свое и все такое, eh.

grayma1k Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2012
Ок, спасибо за пояснение.

Это, конечно, не Бэккер и даже не Достоевский (которого я тоже люблю).
И, собственно, практически и не литература вообще - синдром Мэри Сью, примитивность подачи материала, целенаправленность и прямолинейность, наивность и доброта.
Но. Оно прицельно прошлось по как минимум половине моих слабых мест - и во многом как раз по тем, которые сильно задевают и Бэккер, и Достоевский. И в итоге я, видя все слабости и недостатки этой вещи, провёл пару вечеров - читая и думая, сопереживая и наблюдая за героями, которые не вызывают отторжения, а скорее даже - наоборот. А такое для меня - вообще редкая вещь. Доброта - я за такое очень многое готов простить.

Я вряд ли буду эту вещь перечитывать. На мой headcanon она также никак не повлияла - скорее, в чём-то она ему сильно не соответствует. И фанарта по ней тоже, скорее всего, больше не будет. Но потратить несколько часов на то, чтоб всё же как-то выразить своё уважение автору за его работу - показалось всё же правильно.

Oh, the urge to make tributes to Past Sins.. who can resist that :D

(It hit me particularly hard, not ever really having done art before ^^')

Indeed.
It precisely struck several of my major soft points. And while I perfectly see all the weaknesses of the fanfic, I can't just ignore the fact that I actually liked it :-)
