Swiftly and softly he moved through the trees. Approaching his next target with absolute silence. He knocked two arrows. The two patrolmen were facing away from him. He fired a quickshot at the first then in a split-second, shot the other as well. The only sounds were slight groans of pain. He continued on, not skipping a beat. He knew there would be more patrols so he knocked another arrow. This time there were 4 patrolmen and a watchdog. Interesting. He sprinted at the opposers, who obviously didn't hear him, and shot the dog first. He then pulled out his shortsword and killed the first 2 patrolmen. By the time the other two had turned around, Arcayus was already moving in for their demise. Another arrow flew through the air and hit another patrolmen. The remaining patrolmen, petrified, went for his radio but felt a sharp pain in his back. A thrown knife. Arcayus picked up his knife and continued through the thick vegetation.

"Hey, Jade. Did you get my gift?"
"Yes, I did," Jade said into her cell phone with a smile. "It's sitting right here in front of me, waiting to be opened like... Like Karkat waits until he's calm to make a comment."
Dave's laughter was soft on the other end of the phone. "Like the shit waits to fly of the handle?"
"Like a Strider waits to drop a sicknasty beat."
"So, not waiting at all?"
Jade grinned. "My hands are on it right now. Woopsie, my finger slipped inside!"
"Jade, don't say that."
Dave sighed, the sound distorted by the phones. "Never mind. Go ahead; open it up."
"I am, I am," Jade said, holding her phone to her ear with her shoulder, opening the box carefully and slowly.
Dave was silent for a while, waiting. "So? What do you think?"
"I," Jade began and then swallowed. "I think I'm glad I already sent your present."
"Because," Jade murmured. "If I hadn't already sent it, I would change my mind right now and not

It was nighttime on the peaceful world of Oa, everyone was mostly asleep with the exception of a few still up and about attending to their business and jetting off like green firelight within the city. In one of the many vast structures, a married couple were living there and one of them happen to be a red lantern who was still up and had his own reason why he was even at this late hour. He was in bed lying close against the one person he felt connected to after everything that's happened, and watching her as she slept peacefully beside him.
She look so tranquil, her face so serene while the lights outside gave her green skin an illumination glow. She was so beautiful and he could never get enough how he felt lucky to have Aya in his life.

Edit: This tutorial covers aspects related only to your Deviantart gallery and Deviantart Journal. It has nothing to do with the Deviantart's newly implemented points commission system. You can take commissions without using that points system on Deviantart as long as you have paypal.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO START
When you have enough watchers and people interested in your art.
When you have a closely-bounded community around your work/gallery
How many is enough I can't say for sure, because it depends on the community around you and your work. Some artists can live on one patron, others need to live on millions of them.
For DA, I would say typically around 20,000-40,000 pageviews, at least 40-50 watchers on your DA is best before you start considering taking commissions, (because out of that 40-50, you may have 1 person willing to pay, a safer bet is 100 people.) however, if your gallery has explosiv
The Best Angel Ever"Well, how are things in Heaven?" she asked him, baby blue eyes turning to the strong, tall man standing beside her. "It's nice." he responded. "It's brilliant. Beautiful. You should see Him, Mellie. He's amazing." Melanie smiled, pleased to see that her proud brother was beaming brightly as they watched the sunset together. "Was it worth it, then? The pain?" she dared ask, venturing a step farther in their conversation. She knew it would be the last she had with him. "Yeah. It was. Not just the pain of the crash, but the pain through life. All the teasing I got for being 'different', for being some 'Jesus Freak'. The names, the lectures, the hate, everything.

Talonflame ReportTalonflame (the Scorching Pokémon) is a relatively rare Fire/Flying-type Pokémon found among grassy fields and forested areas within the Kalos region. Renowned for their agility and fiery powers in battle, Talonflame are fierce birds that can easily give opponents a hotfoot that they won’t easily forget. They may not be terribly great in their offensive or defensive stats, but when it comes to raining down fire in a glorious display of bizarre anatomical structure, there are few trainers that won’t find themselves having to douse their bodies just to keep themselves from burning to the ground like everything surrounding them!Talonflame Report1 year ago in Profiles More Like This

It had survived things that no mug should have had to endure.
It had been dropped off cliffs, plunged into radioactive water, used to hold questionable substances and once travelled several hundred kilometres after Pilot tied a helium balloon to it. It had been thrown at Snippy countless times. It had suffered the indignity of being sat on by Engie after the Captain left it lying on a chair.
It had never been washed in its life.
But in the end, all it took was one little nudge, and the mug the great, glorious mug was reduced to a few shards of broken ceramic and a spatter of sad-looking tea.

I have no face. There was a time when I may have owned one, but this is a fuzzy half-memory. In fact, it may be entirely an invention of fantasy. These days, regardless of my history, I know for a fact that I have no face. However, I have been granted a name: The American Obesity Problem. And I am growing in the United States. You may have seen me on television. You may have been witness to my disconcerting back cleavage and mystified by the seamless transition my legs make from my calves into my ankles. You probably saw my unsettlingly large, shelf-like behind as it strained against my tight Capri pants that I swore I would fit into someday and, when I didn't lose the weight, decided to wear anyway because, "If I spend more than $30 on pants I better damn well find a way to squeeze into them." You may have caught a glance of ponytail resting on my back, or a peek at several of my lower chins. But

"It all started here." Ed explained; the ruins of our old house in front of us. "There was the main room, our room, the kitchen, the basement, the memories; it sure does bring me back." Ed let out a small laugh, walking across where every room roughly was.
"I'm surprised there's still some ashes left and that they all haven't been blow away." I chuckled, scratching the back of my head; glass shattering from underneath Ed's left foot as he tread forward a step. Brother straight away peered down at the floor where the noise had come from. He crouched down and digged in the pile of rubble, he was standing on and pulled out a dusty cracked, wooden photo frame, which had a photo still in it. He shook the ashes out the cracked photo frame before lifting it up to show me.
"Al remember this photo? I'm surprised it's still in good condition." He said, facing it towards me. I stepped closer to him and glanced at the photo. It was a photo of us as young boys with mother, mum held
-Love While It Lasts-He claims that he loves me, but is that really true?-Love While It Lasts-5 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Am I the only one who is stuck with this view?
I'm afraid to fall again, afraid to get hurt.
Afraid to be left all alone in the dirt.
If it is not true, I save myself sorrow.
But if it is true, I throw away my tomorrow.
If I think too much, I'll make the wrong choice.
But if I don't think enough, my heart can't rejoice.
I'm sick of being worried, I'm sick of having fear.
I'm sick of being scared to let anyone near.
So I'll stop thinking so much, and I'll simply pray.
For I am only an actor in this wonderful play.
I'll go out on the stage, and be unafraid.
For through this troublesome water, I must wade.
I'll let love happen, I'll stop thinking of the past.
And enjoy this love, if only while it lasts.
Tranquil SuicideTranquil Suicide3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Singing sweet, soft melodies,
Muffled by the currents in my head.
The will to find the song is drowned
So words come out in screams.
The pressure of the water grows,
As I fall faster, deeper.
In this flooded, lonely room,
No one ever hears.
No tears to sting my eyes,
Only water crashing through broken mirrors.
My eyes begin to close
And I let the darkness blind me.
Now the liquid fills my lungs,
Collapsing bones and bruising heart,
No more life to pump the blood.
I truly miss my breathing.
The furnishings all drenched and old,
No one has lived here quite a while.
Doors sealed shut and windows barred,
Just letting in a pale blue light
That covers every patch of wall,
Seeping through spaces in the water.
Turquoise light radiates my body,
All left still and silent.
Eyes are closed
And heart subsided,
Floating in this sea of peace,
My raging mind now quiet.

Sometimes you like to pretend you aren't blind.
You like to close your hollow eye sockets, take deep breaths, and imagine that you are on Prospit, with your friends.
Sometimes, instead, you just lapse into memories. Like that one time you and Karkat laughed hysterically, slumped over one another after Eridan stepped on a horn, tripped over the one-wheel device and fell on his face.
You remember back to fun days spent excavating with Aradia, back when you were just barely five sweeps old. You remember finding the skeleton of what you both instantly assumed to be an ancient scalebeast, but ended up being regular troll remains.
You remember when Karkat came over to your hive for the first time and you kicked his ass at every game you owned, laughed through his tantrum, and gave him a big hug when he apologized for almost wrecking your mainframe. You liked this memory the best, because you alway

Evil is live spelled backwards
God must love stupid people, he made so many of them
When all else fails, read the instuctions
"Push" is the force exerted upon the door marked "Pull"
What some people lack in intelligence, they make up in stupidity
There is a difference between an open mind and a hole in the head
The light at the end of the tunnel could turn out to be the headlight of an oncoming train
A watched pot never boils, unless you light the gas under it
If your parents don't have kids, odds are you won't either
Curiosity kills more mice than cats
Save the whales. Collect the whole set
On the other hand, you have different fingers
Depression is merely anger without enthusiasm
Support bacteria. They're the only culture some people have
A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory

Will you be my friend?
Because I seem to just be a trend,
That the world has put to bed.
Will you make me smile?
Because Happiness has run a mile,
Just like everything else I need.
Will you help me hope?
Because Optimism is a slippery slope,
When you've seen the world.
Will you make me care?
Because I hate Interest's flare,
In a place too dull for life.
Will you make me content?
Because you're the one that'll prevent,
That which I long for.
Will you make me feel alive?
Because I don't even want to survive,
In a world that cares too much.
Will you make me a saint?
Because I don't deserve a heavenly taint,
Due to the sinner that I have become.
Will you make me your sob-story?
Because you want all of the pride and glory,
Of surviving where your buddy fell.
