Shuffling softly in the twilight of morning
blooming children once wandered along the drifting sidewalks
feeling only scattered freckles of broken sunlight
drip across their faces.
Rolls of fresh dew tumble down unraveled flowers
nestling gently in the corners of their toes.
They skid through puddled asphalt
soaking deep the buried harmonies beneath their cursive breath;
the taste of past summers still
steaming on their tongues.
Unattainable Illusions +Ch. 1+"Well well...Look at what the cat drug in." A cold voice chimed from the far end of the dark room. The boy slightly opened one eye to be face to face with what appeared to be another homunculus. This one was pale and long stringy green hair; he wore a tight black shirt that stopped at his chest with a matching black skort, the oroborus symbol was tattooed just below the skort on his right leg.Unattainable Illusions +Ch. 1+9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
"You look like someone I used to know..." Envy said with a small smirk. He pushed his thumb under the boy's chin and lifted it up so he could get a good look at his face. "A man I once killed perhaps...? And to think I could never see you as pathetic as I once did when I blew your stomach to pieces!" He said, cackling. "No...But you're not the same boy...Are you? Though that face makes my stomach squirm...The thought of helping you makes my blood curl." He snorted. Envy then reached in his pockets as he drew out a few small, blood red stones.
The boy looked at them sickly, not saying a word. "Eat

That face...The unforgettable face of a cold-blooded killer, despite her innocent appearance. How could a girl not looking to be much older than seventeen be as stonehearted as the rumors had suggested. But she was here...Right infront of me. That smile...The smile that promised great things...The smile that had led many of my comrades to their sluggish, agonizing deaths at the hands of the hand of the creature standing not ten feet away from me. Oh god...There's that smile again...A finger pressing against her dark lips...Her long hair blowing in the wind under the light of the full scarlet moon.

And all we have is the phone.
We may stay up extremely late,
But we know our fate is full known.
Because I love you and you love me.
I know we'll be together again soon.
Being with you is all I think about, baby.
And fate still rings that beautiful tune.
I get butterflies in my stomach,
Just at the mere thought of you.
You know, you left me awestruck?
But texting or talking will have to make-do.
And I'll also keep dreaming of us,
Until we can see each other again.
I'll always love you forever, I promise.
Distance may be great, but it can't win.
UnattainableIllusions+Prologue"Am I really gonna do this..?" A solemn tone came from a young girl as she looked over the large transmutation circle that was etched in the concrete floor and the remains that were laid in the middle, a few silent tears formed in her eyes as they ran down her cheeks. She opened her eyes slightly as she fell back on her knees and her hands found their way to the floor near the circle, clenching her hands to the point where her knuckles had turned white. The girl was only 16, but after witnessing Edward Elric's death at the hands of the homunculus named Envy the once proud girl had been completely broken; her heart which had been broken in the past this time felt as though it had completely shattered. She didn't bother trying to mend it this time, the heart was like a mirror..Once broken it could never be mended, the remnants were left scattered on the cold, dingy floor.UnattainableIllusions+Prologue9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

He hissed, closing an eye as he looked over her shoulder and over the side of the trunk. "They nearly saw us..." Wrath blinked slightly out of confusion, the look on her face was clearly asking 'What the hell are you talking about?' After a few minutes he lowered his hand. "I'm sorry...I didn't want to be seen..." He whispered, stepping away as a few leaves crunched under his feet.Unattainable Illusions +Ch 4+9 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Guide 2 of ? Talking To Them
Hey! Invader-Roxas here! I'm here to give you another part of my part-by-part packaged guide on how to catch Art Thieves. I know lots of Deviants out there dedicate some of their own Deviant careers to stop the madness, and were all doing what we possibly can! But, here is a guide to help you with some new tactics, and other things you may need help with! Enjoy!
Part 1: How To Talk To Art Thieves
Ok, now I know a lot of people talk to the art thieves to let them know that their "Art" is stolen, and needs to be taken off Deviant ART. But lots of times, I've seen the wrong example of talking to them. I'll get to that later, but now let's focase on HOW to talk to them.
Here are some common conversations you may have with an Art Thief; I'll show what they say, and wha
The first day they met part 2Ace was probably lost again, but didn't want to admit it to himself. He was only three years older then Mogin, twelve years old. He wasn't a Nekomimi like she was though, but was a different breed all together. He was a Inumimi, and they usually tried to keep their distance from their feline counterparts. It's not that they didn't get along; it's just that the young ones still seemed to have that slight air that they should be afraid of each other. He wore his usual black jacket that went all the way down to the ground. It had pockets to fit anything and everything, and belts to help keep everything in place on him. He wore his favorite black boots, as well as a pair of black pants. It wasn't the best choice for being in the sun, but it didn't seem to bother him to much. He had dark blue hair, but blond ears and a blond bushy tail that usually wagged as he walked. Now though, it was down in a worried fashion, because he didn't really know where he was going.The first day they met part 25 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

The first day they met part 3"Umm... M-my name i-is Mog-gin could you h-help me get untangled?" Mogin finally sputtered. She was deathly afraid of this odd looking figure above her, but she very well couldn't just ignore him since she was tangled. Though, he didn't seem to take notice to her plea for help. Worry steadily growing inside of her, she noticed he seemed to be staring down at her feet. She looked down and tried lifting them to see them better. They lifted a little, but quickly stopped as a part of the ribbon became taunt. From what she could see, there was nothing wrong with them at all. She wiggled her toes a little and tried again.The first day they met part 35 years ago in Short Stories More Like This

I'm not a brilliant or fantasmically talented writer, but I know a decent OC when I see one. Or at least a non-crappy one.
I think we know how this works. Here we go
1. DO Try to vary your OCs personalities. In the real world, if everyone had the same awesome, flawless character, life would be mind-numbingly BORING. Also, not everyone is nice/horrible/depressed/energetic all the time. (Unless, of course, you want to use that as a flaw.)
2. DONT get too hung up on making profiles for your characters. Profiles are for procrastinators who want to make a fantastic character without getting started on the actual story. I was guilty of it too, before I realised how boring filling out the same form over and over again was.
Try describing them in the story, THEN make notes to help you remember stupid boring details like their star-sign and eye colour so you dont accidentally change them halfway through the st

Guide 1 of ? Introduction, To the World Of Art Theives
Hi, I'm Invader-Roxas. I've dedicated part of my DeviantART life to catching Art Theives, Recolors, Scammers, etc. I guess since I've gotten much help from tutorials like these, I should make one myself. I hope this will help you catch the Art Theives that have implanted themselves onto our beloved DeviantART.
Part 1: Their Objective.
Now with Art Theives, each one has their own personal desiers with their "Art", some may be to get lots of notice, to get popularity, and many more. Most of the time, they don't even know what they're doing. Well I guess to start out with this part, I should list some objectives:
~Get Popularity, Pageviews, Fav's, Watchers, etc.
~To do it because they "Don't know how to draw".

My MuseMy muse decided to kidnap me today.My Muse7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
He stole me away and made me his slave.
At the computer, I type faster and faster,
Half-expecting my words to become a disaster.
But my muse sits beside me and whispers so clear
Every syllable which he desires to appear.
His ethereal form leaves no way to be heard,
Save my lacking translations, word for word.
He disappears often, flighty at best,
Giving me ample time to rest.
But his lengthy outings leave much to be desired
As I wait and I wait to once more be inspired.
Involuntary servitude becomes apparent
As I stare out the window, completely transparent.
He said hed be back a mere two days ago...
But when it comes to my muse, you cant really know.
When he returns, I am defiantly abstinent,
Until he mentions fresh ideas he found in my absence.
Hypnotized by the promise of new notes to sing,
I fall hook, line, and sinker for the same old thing.
It Didn't Reach The Ground...It Didn't Reach The Ground...6 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
It doesn't even reach the ground...
The snow just slowly falls around.
It was beautiful, I had to admit,
But it just didn't seem to fit.
The way it fell down in the south;
It didn't even reach my mouth.
It then melted into rain
And I was sad; Left in pain.
A silly thing to be sad about,
But I have never seen the snow throughout.
The first time my eyes set sight
On the rain and snow falling in the night.
Disappointment ran through my veins
And I was just left to hate the rains.
For they expertly wash away everything.
The snow; Something I have never seen.
I despise it when it betrays me so,
For it's melting what I don't want to go.
Now, It's stopped snowing and I go forth,
Yearning to go on straight to the North.
Somewhere where there's everything
And only to the rain, I don't have to cling.
I do love them, Ihonestly do
However I'm longing for something entirely new.
