End&Thanks And then...Moonlight bird is finished !

First, I wanted to thank everydoy for the support. It’s the first time I finish something, omg, now I can say that I have really done a webcomic until the end ! Thank youuu soooo much, it’s thanks to you all !

Now I’m going to give my vision of the story, but remember, you are not supposed to be agree with all I’ll say ! Make you own vision !

So let’s start from the begining and forgive me for the very very bad english, internet traductors are worst than me ...

<<Every day Liam has to wake up early to take care of the house before his aunt wakes up (Cinderellaaaaa) and every morning he goes to open the window and looks at the landscape for a moment. And for a long time now, a pigeon regularly comes to settle on the edge of its window to keep him company. Liam finally became fond of this animal which reminded him, because both are rejected by the society, are unloved, while they did nothing bad.
The days of Liam are difficult because whatever he does, his aunt always becomes terrible and violent with him. For Liam she's a superior authority and he can’t rebel against her, he owes her respect,whatever she does, even if he would have enough strength to stand up to her.
He spends many of his nights crying because he doesn’t see outcomes in this nightmare.
Meanwhile, Nael observes everything and sees all the suffering of Liam. He eventually felt too a strong attachment to this human who was the only one who not chase him away and who even seemed to estimate him. He wants to help him, to protect him, so hardly as the miracle occurs and as we offer him the possibility of taking human form. He takes advantage of it to come to calm the sleep of Liam so that this one rests in spite of all the pain. But he can’t show himself to him under his human form. He’s afraid that Liam would be afraid of him.
However he ignores that he leaves inadvertently a strange indication to Liam. A feather which finds itself near his bed and that the wind would have brought up to there with difficulty. It’s from this moment that Liam begins to ask himself questions without finding of answers.

But Liam nevertheless doesn’t bear moreof his daily life which worsens and eventually fails psychologically. He thinks of ending it by choosing the death. He’s afraid, but he can’t take it anymore and doesn’t see another solution. At the last minute, in spite of the rain, Nael manages to stop Liam from making a terrible error. By seeing the bird on the other side of the window, Liam can’t resolve to leave him like that and eventually abandons its knife to come to help the bird. When this one rubs itself with affection against the hand, a profound sadness invaded him, at the same time as remorse. This innocent creature shows him so much of love, all that he looks for so much, and he had forgotten him in his madness. But at the same time what can he do for him?
By squeezing the pigeon in the arms, Liam notices that feathers are similar to the one that he found in his bedroom. He begins to imagine a totally absurd hypothesis but which would explain everything. While Nael sees that he’s about to understand everything, he gets rid of his influence and decides to take his human form for everything to admit him. Even before seeing him, Liam recognizes this heat which warmed his nights. He’s surprised with Liam's reaction, to see his smile, while he should have been afraid. Liam is surprised but amused, he feels then happier than ever. Nael by discovering his laughter for the first time fell definitively under his charm. By looking in his eyes, Liam sees all love and attraction that Nael feels for him and that he can’t express with his face. Perturbed, he hesitates. It’s annoying, but at the same time, can he really turn a blind eye to his own feelings? Nael is the best thing which exists in his life. The desire is already too strong, the relief which it brings is delicious.
But when he gets up in the morning, Nael isn’t any more there again. It saddens him, he doesn’t understand. Would he have made an error so that he ran away? He just hopes to see him again but he doesn’t seem to show a single sign whatever he makes.
His heart was bruised, Liam makes a decision. He eventually goes up at the top of the roof, for a unique reason. If same Nael eventually gave up him, its life cost undoubtedly the effort to be lived. He throws itself then in space, thinking to finish it definitively, this time nobody could stop him. But during his fall, he feels the presence of somebody and by opening eyes, he discovers Nael in front of him. The fear and the panic seizes him. Why does he show itself now? Why does he come to help him at the risk of his life? Liam already sees it, what makes Nael is no other than a sacrifice. And nevertheless, this one offers him a last smile like saying " Everything goes well, don’t worry ". His first one and the last one smile. We feel a certain sadness there and nevertheless his look is filled with love as if in a few seconds he made a promise on his future, assuring him that everything will get better.

If Nael had not shown himself until now, it was because he had worn out too much energy to stay beside Liam during night and because he couldn’t stay more under his human form. And, with shame, he was afraid that Liam doesn’t want him anymore by discovering that he couldn’t change constantly in man, that he remembers that he was only a pigeon and that he was absurd to imagine anything between them. A fear so stupid but sometimes feelings make us do stupid things. By seing Liam ready to throw itself, he had no choice but to use little of energy which he had taken back to be transformed and rush to his rescue, but, because his arms are only wings, he couldn’t catch him and fly at the same time. There was thus only a solution. Use his body to protect him.
Liam finally lost everything, by his own fault. He’s so much in shock that it is absent that he leaves burying Nael and doesn’t see hours goes by while he observes Nael’s feather, remembering all the moments spent with him, realizing the scale of his loss. And then, she had to arrive, his aunt who comes to compete for him because he is late. Shes punch him again and he undergoes, again and again. But by seeing her crushing Nael’s feather, his last memory, the furies get the upper hand for the first time, and not controlling itself any more gets up and hits violently his aunt. Realizing his gesture, he’s lost, stricken with remorse, before understanding what he had to do from now on. He runs away, taking some money and some objects with before leaving the house and then the village. Arrived far away, he stops and looks a last time at his home town. It’s there that he understands the reason of Nael’s smile. It’s thanks to him that he knew how to finally release itself of his miserable life. For all these years, he hadn’t simply found the courage to do it. Nael gave it to him.

There are many morality in this story. To the people who think that the suicide is the good solution, it’s necessary to see that there is always, nevertheless, some hope and a reason for continuing life, because we don’t know how the future will be for us, but also, it proves that often, the solution is in our hands but that it’s simply necessary to have the courage to hold it. We often think that our problems can’t be resolved, that situations are endless, but sometimes it’s simply necessary to rebel. Go ahead. Put back things. Act.>>

French version : <<Tous les jours Liam doit se lever tôt pour s’occuper de la maison avant que sa tante ne se lève (Cendrillooooon) et chaque matin il va ouvrir la fenêtre pour regarder le paysage un instant. Et depuis un certain temps, un pigeon vient régulièrement se poser sur le bord de sa fenêtre pour lui tenir compagnie. Liam s’est finalement pris d’affection pour cet animal qui lui faisait penser à lui, parce que tous les deux sont rejetés par la société, sont mal-aimés, alors qu’ils n’ont rien fait de mal.
Les journées de Liam sont difficiles puisque quoi qu’il fasse, sa tante finit toujours par devenir détestable et violente avec lui. Pour Liam elle est une autorité supérieure et il ne peut pas se rebeller contre elle, il lui doit le respect, peut importe ce qu’elle lui fait, quant bien même il aurait suffisamment de force pour lui tenir tête.
Il passe donc beaucoup de ses nuits à pleurer car il ne voit pas d’issues à ce cauchemar.
Pendant ce temps, Nael observe tout et voit toute la souffrance de Liam. Il a lui aussi fini par éprouver un fort attachement envers cet humain qui fut le seul à ne pas le chasser et qui semblait même l’apprécier. Il veut l’aider, le protéger, si fort que le miracle se produit et qu’on lui offre la possibilité de prendre forme humaine. Il en profite pour venir apaiser le sommeil de Liam afin que celui-ci se repose malgré toute sa douleur. Mais il ne peut pas se montrer à lui sous sa forme humaine. Il craint que Liam ait peur de lui.
Cependant il ignore qu’il laisse par mégarde un étrange indice à Liam. Une plume qui se retrouve près de son lit et que le vent aurait difficilement amené jusque-là. C’est à partir de ce moment que Liam commence à se poser des questions sans trouver de réponses.

Mais Liam malgré tout ne supporte pas plus son quotidien qui s’empire et finit par craquer psychologiquement. Il songe à mettre fin à tout en choisissant la mort. Il a peur, mais il n’en peut plus et ne voit que ça comme solution. In extremis, malgré la pluie, Nael arrive à empêcher Liam de commettre une terrible erreur. En voyant l’oiseau de l’autre côté de la fenêtre, Liam ne peut se résoudre à le laisser ainsi et finit par abandonner son couteau pour venir aider l’oiseau. Lorsque celui-ci se frotte avec amour contre sa main, une profonde tristesse l’envahi, en même temps que des remords. Cette innocente créature lui montre tant d’affection, tout ce qu’il recherche tant, et il l’avait oublié dans sa folie. Mais en même temps que peut-il faire pour lui ?
En serrant le pigeon dans ses bras, Liam remarque alors que les plumes sont semblables à celle qu’il a retrouvée dans sa chambre. Il commence à imaginer une hypothèse totalement absurde mais qui expliquerait tout. Alors que Nael voit qu’il est sur le point de tout comprendre, il se défait de son emprise et décide de prendre sa forme humaine pour tout lui avouer. Avant même de le voir, Liam reconnait cette chaleur qui a réchauffé ses nuits Il est surpris de la réaction de Liam, de voir son sourire, alors qu’il aurait dû avoir peur. Liam est surpris mais amusé, il se sent alors plus heureux que jamais. Nael en découvrant son rire pour la première fois tombe définitivement sous son charme. En regardant dans ses yeux, Liam voit tout l’amour et l’attirance que Nael ressent pour lui et qu’il ne peut exprimer avec son visage. Perturbé, il hésite. C’est gênant, mais en même temps, peut-il vraiment fermer les yeux sur ses propres sentiments ? Nael est la meilleure chose qui existe dans sa vie. Le désir est déjà trop fort, le soulagement qu’il apporte est délicieux.
Mais lorsqu’il se relève le matin, Nael n’est de nouveau plus là. Cela l’attriste, il ne comprend pas. Aurait-il fait une erreur pour qu’il ait fui ainsi ? Il espère juste le revoir…mais il ne semble pas montrer un seul signe quoi qu’il fasse.
Son cœur meurtri, Liam prend une décision. Il finit par monter en haut du toit, pour une unique raison. Si même Nael a fini par l’abandonner, sa vie ne valait décidément plus la peine d’être vécue. Il se jette alors dans le vide, pensant en finir définitivement, cette fois-ci personne ne pourrait l’arrêter. Mais au cours de sa chute, il sent la présence de quelqu’un et en ouvrant les yeux, il découvre Nael devant lui. La peur et la panique le saisit. Pourquoi se montre-t-il maintenant ? Pourquoi vient-il à son secours au péril de sa vie ? Liam le voit déjà, ce que fait Nael n’est autre qu’un sacrifice. Et pourtant, celui-ci lui offre un dernier sourire l’air de dire « Tout va bien, ne t’inquiète pas ». Son premier et dernier sourire. On y ressent une certaine tristesse et pourtant son regard est empli d’amour comme si en quelques secondes à peine il lui faisait une promesse sur son avenir, lui assurant que tout ira mieux.

Si Nael ne s’était pas montré jusqu’à présent, c’était parce qu’il avait usé trop d’énergie pour rester aux côtés de Liam durant la nuit et qu’il ne pouvait plus que rester sous sa forme animale. Et, avec honte, il avait peur que Liam ne veuille plus de lui en découvrant qu’il ne pouvait pas se changer continuellement en homme, qu’il se souvienne qu’il n’était qu’un pigeon et qu’il était absurde d’imaginer quoi que ce soit entre eux. Une peur tout aussi idiote mais parfois les sentiments font faire des choses bêtes. En voyant Liam prêt à se jeter, il n’eut pas le choix que d’utiliser le peu d’énergie qu’il avait repris pour se transformer et voler à son secours, mais, parce que ses bras sont uniquement des ailes, il ne pouvait l’agripper et voler en même temps. Il ne restait donc qu’une solution. Se servir de son corps pour le protéger.

Liam a finalement tout perdu, par sa faute. Il est tellement sous le choc que c’est absent qu’il part enterrer Nael et ne voit pas les heures passer alors qu’il observe la plume qui lui reste, se remémorant tous les instants passées avec lui, réalisant l’ampleur de sa perte. Et puis, il fallait qu’elle arrive, sa tante qui vient le disputer parce qu’il est en retard. Elle le frappe de nouveau et il subit, encore et toujours. Mais en la voyant écraser la plume de Nael, son dernier souvenir, la rage prend le dessus pour la première fois, et ne se contrôlant plus il se relève et frappe violemment sa tante. Se rendant compte de son geste il est perdu un instant, pris de remords, avant de comprendre ce qu’il devait faire désormais. Il s’enfuit, prenant de l’argent et quelques objets avec avant de quitter la maison puis le village. Arrivé au loin, il arrête sa course, et regarde une dernière fois son village natal. C’est là qu’il comprend la raison du sourire de Nael. C’est grâce à lui qu’il a su enfin se libérer de sa misérable vie. Depuis toutes ces années, il n’avait simplement pas trouvé le courage de le faire. Nael le lui a donné.

Il y a deux morales que l’ont peur tirer de cette histoire. Aux personnes qui pensent que le suicide est la bonne solution, il faut voir qu’il y a toujours, malgré tout, de l’espoir et une raison de continuer la vie, car on ne sait pas ce que l’avenir nous réserve, mais également, de prouver que souvent, la solution est dans nos mains mais qu’il faut simplement avoir le courage de s’en saisir. On pense souvent que nos problèmes ne peuvent se résoudre, que les mauvaises situations sont sans fin, mais parfois il faut simplement oser se rebeller. Aller de l’avant. Renverser les choses. Agir. >>

This is seriously one of the most beautifully drawn and told stories I've read. There was hardly any dialogue (or none at all) but you didn't need it. I think the lack of dialogue made you pay more attention to their body language and facial expressions and because of that you understood their feelings better and the overall mood of what was happening. The story was told really well. It kind of shows how far a person who really truly loves you will go to make your life better even at the sacrifice of their own life.It was a bitter sweet ending but I loved it regardless because Liam was able to move on. Thank you so much for this wonderful story!I'm definitely gonna come back and reread it!!

@SemeSadique: ...This story was absolutely wonderful! So breathtaking. It was told very beautifully! This seriously is one of the most beautifully drawn and told stories I've ever read too! And haha @silverwolf019 literally said what I wanted to said, haha! But this was all worth it, the way you ended the story was amazing... It was bittersweet which I love it all the same and the fact that Liam was able to move on.. It was good that he finally did! Nael, even though he had a short appearance. He affected Liam, me and all of us so greatly. But most of all Liam!

Yes, the story does kind of show how far someone who truly loves you will go to make your life better at the sacrifce of your own life! Though I thought the ending was very fitting, he was able to move on and escape thaf hellhole of a place all because of Nael! Without him, he would've stayed there for awhile... ; A ;

This was an adventure from the beginning to end, a rollercoaster even. It had it's ups, downs, loopyed loops, twists and turns. I shall forever hold this webcomic in my memories, it's very precious to me<3 Honestly this was so good, I'm going to re-read so many times! Thank you for sharing this spectacular webcomic of yours! I shall love to wait until you make another work on here! No matter how long it takes, totally looking forward to your works in the future!
