The beautiful artwork was done by As00
I wrote this for a contest at [link] for two unconnected things being connected by an object. I chose a crow and and violin being connected by their sorrowful song.
Hope everyone likes :)

Well, I do have quite an affinity to crows...So, I have to say, I like this more than I probably should.

The ending, if I do say so myself, was quite brillant. The idea of a poor crow, croaking the impersonation of a fallen singer just plucks my hearstrings into quite a lovely tune. I can see the obvious symbolism in this...in the sorrow of one in their lacking, and the misery of another in their expression. I think I've often felt like that crow, calling in self-dismay and ire, and carrying the notes of another until all that's left of me is raw and dull. It's quite wonderful...

But, I have to say, I would spice up the words a bit. "Sorrow" and "sing/song" among others are used a little too often for my taste, but not to where it's annoying.

Nice. :)

And I love crows~ I feed and help keep a few at the local bird hospital. X3

Really!? I'd love to have a crow, but I'm dying to get a pet magpie. I take care of a domestic one, and I just adore him. X3 But, he's not mine, and I really want to aquire one someday...

The magpie speaks...so it can't be too hard to teach a crow! :3 (Same family, higher intelligence.)

I really want a crow (magpie is too small for). My friend even said he might sell me the crow.

I think I just have a liking for the mag I take care of. X3 I've become biased towards those little guys because of his curious and self-imposed personality. I just love him. :dummy:

If I had a crow, I'd be sure to get a Hooded or African Pied crow...I find them to my liking, and African Pieds are pretty easy to train. (That, or get a raven. :meow:)

But, hey, if you can get any crow, get one! They're awesome! (But messy...)

I could never get a raven , I would always be scared it would begin to scream "Nevermore" (please tell me you know that reference)
And my friend has a Fish Crow. It has pitch black feathers that are always ruffled up. It is so cool.
