You're more than that by cyberaeon You're more than that by cyberaeon
“Geralt!”
The witcher turned instantly and rushed to meet the young girl. The scene left Yurga speechless. He had never seen anyone move so fast.
“Geralt!” the little girl repeated, hugging the witcher's chest. “You've found me! I knew it! I always knew! I knew you'd find me!”
“Ciri,” the witcher said.
Yurga didn't see Geralt's face, hidden by the little girl's ashen hair. He only saw black-gloved hands squeezing Ciri's back and shoulders.
“You've finally found me! Oh, Geralt! I waited all this time! It took so long... We'll stay together now, won't we? Now we'll be together, right? Say it, Geralt! Forever! Say it!”
“Forever, Ciri.”
“It's just like they predicted, Geralt! Like they predicted... I'm your destiny? Say it! I'm your destiny?”
Yurga saw astonishment in the eyes of the witcher. He heard Chrysididae's discreet sobs and felt her shoulders trembling. He knew that he would not understand the answer, but he waited anyway. With good reason:
“You're more than that, Ciri. Much more.”

Excerpt from "The Sword of Destiny" written by Andrzej Sapkowski

I'm re-reading the books right now after finishing tw3, and this is still one of my favorite scenes. These moments with Geralt and Ciri never fail to make my eyes teary, as does your illustration of it. You captured the feeling so wonderfully. :heart:

The witcher series is like Mary shelly's Frankenstein and H. G. Wells' war of the worlds in that they are books that are important to my life and are close to my black shriveled up heart because they made me feel compelled and emotional and this scene was the one that made me cry I admit it

 I can't even... The feels and memories hit so hard here that I can only sob a little like Chrysidadae did :'D
It's an amazing work, kind of those which you want to look at them and look and look and feel all those feelings that you had reading a book. I'm so amazed by the details of your work - it's a fine masterpiece with beautifully drawn characters and light that boosts everything. The relief on Geralt's face and happiness on Ciri's are priceless. Truly touching work.
(and now I'm going to your other work because... I see a Snake Plissken there!? *rushes to comment*)

The best moment in the Witcher Saga. Though the last piece of The Sword of Destiny was so depressing, that last scene was so emotional and optimistic.
And you depicted it perfectly.
