After so long, I'm happy to announce that Victoria's father was able to be reunited with his family once more. Thank you all for the support! It truly meant a lot to all of us.

This is a 100% true story about the plight my friend is currently going through. It is complete injustice and no one should have to grow up without a father, especially not someone as kind and caring as my friend. She has been working so hard to reunite her father with their family, but there is only so much one can do. If everyone helped just a little by signing the petition and spreading the word, we can make a real difference.

Father by `yuumei "Not only is it artistically and technically beautiful, but it harbors an important message. It reminds us to be grateful, and that there still is injustice in the world that needs to be brought to attention. Yuumei does this with use of subdued colors and emotional drawings, and, for a brief moment, her friend's plight for justice for her father." ( Suggested by jlucydaisuke and Featured by nasakii )

I just want to say that I think it's pretty damn awesome that you use your art as a way to help your friend and other causes, like saving the wolves. Usually people just upload art to show it off, but you genuinely try to make a difference using the considerable talents you were given, and that's kind of wonderful.

That was a beautiful and sad story. I'm not a particularly sensitive person but my eyes teared up towards the end. I'm pleased to hear he made it home. :heart:

That's really nice of you to do a flash comic for a friend.. And that's quite some bullsh*t they do towards her father... Reminds me of politics and such. Welp, I now feel relieved they've been reunited. ( icrievertim )
