i got nothing but dreams inside.

Echoes of Suns is the approved fanlisting for Takashi Shirogane (Shiro) from the series, Voltron: Legendary Defender, listed under Animations » Characters. Echoes of Suns was approved on June 2018 and officially launched on July 2018.

There are probably not enough words to describe just how much I love Shiro. He falls under several masculine tropes but not once does it prevent his character from feeling and expressing his emotions. He's selfless and carries never ending encouragement for others. But above all, against all odds, he's a survivor.

Since season 1, as a Shiro fan, you're always on the edge, concern for his safety. Rinse and repeat as each season comes and goes. The series loves to put Shiro in all sorts of difficult situations but hopefully, by the end of it all, Shiro will have a happy ending he rightfully deserves and nothing less.

Title "Echoes of Suns" is inspired by a passage in Ransom Riggs' Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children:

Stars, too, were time travelers. How many of those ancient points of light were the last echoes of suns now dead? How many had been born but their light not yet come this far? If all the suns but ours collapsed tonight, how many lifetimes would it take us to realize we were alone? I had always known the sky was full of mysteries—but not until now had I realized how full of them the earth was.

Although I had a couple of song related names drawn up for a (future) Shiro dedication, none of them really stood out to me as the one. In my quest to find inspirational quotes, I stumbled upon this and thought it was perfect. I see it [Echoes of Suns] as if were Shiro's journey. Plus, it falls under a similar theme (space) with the projects in Astronomy in Reverse so I couldn't be more than happy.

I haven't designed anything concrete since last year (2017) and my health hasn't been in the best of shape as of late so in all honesty, I didn't think I'd be able to create something passable. I was more than tempted to upload a temporary one until my health is much better but given my track record of uploading temporary ones, who knows until when I'll be able to change it to a proper one? And Shiro deserves much better than that so here we are.

I had something slightly different in mind for version one — involving happier pictures of Shiro — but alas! That didn't happen, haha. To be honest, I didn't really know how to go about it. One thing I really wanted to do is incorporate a watercolor texture so I'm happy that I was able to successfully implement it! I wanted bright and happy colors for version one but that didn't happen either... My design color schemes usuallly reflect what I'm feeling at the moment. Version one evokes a much more serious tone than I would've liked (for a first version anyway) but given season 6, I think it kind of fits? haha /hit Season 6 hurt a lot in many ways so...
