I wondered for a long time what I would actually do for my 3,000th page view. And as I wondered I reflected on the great place deviantART really is. I was going to post something I had written a long time ago; a time when depression had wound its way into every aspect of my life and as I re-read what I had once written, I realized I had changed. But how, how had I changed? What caused this sudden change? And part of me thought maybe it was because of Tony but then I realized no, I had changed before him. But how can I have changed when nothing drastic had happened. I didn't just wake up one morning and realized I had changed. And as I pondere

It's been a while since I've written, now hasn't it? As you can see I have a new diary. ☺ I think I lost my old one. Either that or hid it so well even I can't find it now. Well, I'm just glad to know this one has a lock and key so no one will ever find these words. The girls at school already think I'm really weird. If they found out I was writing letters to my dead dog, they'd think I was insane.
Although you know me well enough, I feel as though I should make an introduction of sorts because I have a new journal now. Well, let's see. My name is Ginny, and I'm in the sixth grade. I try to write in my journal everyday.

It's almost over. I'm almost out. Just one more day . I had to keep telling myself this. Only one more day until Winter Break. That meant two whole weeks school-free. Yes.
I tapped my pencil on my hand rapidly, causing red marks. I chewed on my lip and looked at the kid next to me. He was fast asleep. He let out a little snore, finger twitching, and drooled on his desk. I glanced up at the clock. Only a few more minutes. I used this time to day dream about better days, years ago. Before I knew it, the bell had rung and students were filing out of the room. I went with the flow and just barely squeezed out the door.

Your father wanted to move somewhere where kids lived so you could try to make friends before school started. You still had a few weeks before having to go to the new school. Plenty of time to make friends? Heck no! You were terribly shy and it took way longer than 2 or 3 weeks to make friends! Plus you’ve never had a real friend before so what the heck is your father getting at? He thinks you can just walk up to some stranger? I think not! Oh well, at least you don’t have to go outside all the time, you might actually risk talking to a stranger. And like you said before, you’re terribly shy.

Ellie stops in her tracks when she sees her.
She is curved over a book of military history, which she wouldnt read if given the choice. Theres a deliciously easy paperback fantasy in her book bag, nestled snugly between 96-page notebooks, which is begging to be read. Yes, it really is begging to be read But she must exercise resolve. Her eyes ache from Artabazus and Anchialus, Thymondas son of Mentor and Outis son of Nobody and her fingers twitch. But she is choosing to be resilient, so military history it is.

Sometimes, we even fight with ourselves. Our heart battles against our mind. Good and evil cl

Let me tell you about it. It may not be frightening but it is certainly horrible to experience.

"It won't lay flat!" she argues. She turns toward me, and leans against my dresser, crossing her arms over her short pale pink dress. She's pouting and I sigh. The outfit suits her. The color looks great with her skin, and her hair honestly looks fine, straight as a board. She's the cat's meow.

Four and thirteen. Six and twelve. Colors and symbols. Black and white, or black and red, or maybe even blue and red, depending on who you ask and what you're asking. Hate and love. Timelines twisting and warping back in on themselves, loose ends tying neatly together with every page. Ideas that curl out and back in, in and back out, always coming back to the center and locking neatly into place.
Everything has a place. Every last thing has a purpose for existing. You may not know what that purpose is yet, but the inevitability of it belonging somewhere is enough for you. You will know what it is and where it goes when

And whenever he wasn't where he should have been, it was always Raylarn who was put in charge of getting him off his arse and shoving him through the right doors. Not that this came as much as much of a surprise to Raylarn. Out of all the gods designated as part of the high council, he was by far the scariest. It wasn't like he minded though. It was the one thing people actually respected him for, as strange as that sounded. It made him an extremely useful resource, and, more importantly, it was the trait that had earned him the highly enjoyable job of Emmanuel's personal
