I am standingIt's been months since I wanted to break out of my body. Okay, that's a lie. But it's been days. Days since I've felt static scorch underneath my skin, felt colours cutting into my eyes, had to explain that these aren't metaphors. There are so many ways you can get used to living. I wonder if anyone else feels empty when they don't have creatures clawing up through their throat.I am standing1 year ago in Emotional More Like This
I don't know what art is, or what okay is. I like to believe I know it when I feel it, but I'm not so sure I would. I think people expect me to be a lot more insightful than I am right now. I don't think they take into account that boredom is stressful, and stress can shatter you like roots in concrete. Maybe I'm growing. But I don't even know if I'm bored. I feel like a lot of different people, or a lot of aspects of different people, all trying to learn how to stand one another.

LibertyLife is sweet, but not so sweet that you should give up freedom to keep it.Liberty5 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
Like the thief that would rather steal gold than silver, many would rather take freedom than life.
To have it, you must fight for it. To keep it, you must die for it.
Enjoy your freedom, and remember what it takes to keep it.

The Night sky was cold and black, and underneath her ebony veil rested a small town in a valley shrouded in shadows and gently touched by the moons borrowed light. Cries arose from the town square and drunks spilled out of the nearest pub, singing and chanting of heroes long gone. The night was filled with celebration but the cause didn't matter, a new King meant no more than the last one, the only thing that mattered was good mead and roast goose to fill their bellies. Any reason for celebration is a good enough, and no amount of snow on the ground had ever stopped a drunkard from getting his fill.
So no one really noticed the man emerge from the dark narrow street and no one noticed him slipping his dagger back into his belt. Tonight was not a night for observation, it was a night of joy and merriment for most. He calmly walked away from the narrow street, staggering a little from the wine in his gut, his dagger glistened wet with fresh gore and his hands we

We'll ever get to see
While still on earth
While we still can breath
They're there for us
Through thick and thin
They light our way
When our path is dim
To hold your hand
To counsel you through
To help you out
To hold to you true
They're God's little gift
To show you He's there
They're his angel's to you
To show you that he does care
Shadowblitz: A Detailed Anatomy GuideSummaryShadowblitz: A Detailed Anatomy Guide3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
This guide is designed to help those who wish to Role Play with the Character, Shadowblitz, a detailed of his Physical capabilities, abilities, strengths, and weaknesses. Keep in mind; these abilities have been set into stone. They are designed to support an Assassin Cybertronian, so some abilities may seem a bit unfair. Just know that with every Strong ability, there is a flaw to counteract it. Also note that this guide is strictly for his Primary adult stage. The Child stage we see in Fight after Fight does not apply, nor does the stage presented in Disorientation (where Shadow is blind, voiceless, and able to transform) Now, onward with the Guide and I hope that it is useful for any who read it.

Honestly though, the amount of Cheetah/Wonder Woman stuff I write for him should be it's own category. What do you think would be a title for these stories? Nothing too punny!
Also, due to the specific request, this takes place in a different continuity from the last two.
Diana would have never thought she would end up like this. A partner to a famous thief. Cheetah, to be specific.
And yet, this was technically the smartest way of getting the Crus Diamond.
Backstory time. A billionaire by the name of Max Malum Ridetis, a honest man with intentions to save the world. Well, after that, he couldn't be the villain, even though his middle and last name could be translated as 'evil laugh'. Magazine praised him, newspapers heralded him, and official the world over called him a saint.

Art TipsI am writing this for a friend and for anyone else who may find it useful. The following treatise is by no means law or the only way to do things.

1.) Gesture drawings: Yeah, I know, it's one of the most annoying criticisms you'll get "you need to do more gesture drawings!" Stifle your reflex to kick them into a volcano and do it. Your art will be better for it. Try to set aside at least 15 minutes a day for gesture drawing.
2.) Draw from life: If you've been drawing or painting for any significant amount of time, you've probably heard this one too. Second verse, same as the first. Do it, your art will be better for it. Observational skills are KEY to representational art and the more you hone them, the more skilled you will become. Try to imprint on things you see around you; think of life as like a big How To catalog.

There will always be a second chance,
A take two
Another opportunity for success in life and romance
A hope to stop feeling blue
Nothing is lost forever
As long as friends stick together
We can conquer the world, my friend
We need to keep on going till we reach the end
We'll always have a plan B
Because people never run out of ideas
Please stay here with me
So we can go and be free
I need a soul to trust, to stick with throughout the night
One I can see as my knight
Run away with me without leaving a trail
No, we're too awesome together to fail

I gave you my life
And now I'm rotting inside
I gave you my dreams
And now they're fading away
I gave you my hope
And now it's crushed
I gave you my mind
And now it's filled with depression
But most of all
I gave you my heart
but you let it rot
You let it fade away
You crushed it
And you filled it with depression
To say it simple
So everyone will understand
You fucked me up
And I'm recovering, slowly

In a white hospital bed, pale as the lifeless bones of a decaying skeleton, with my flesh exposed through the backless dress of my hospital gown, I listen to nurses discuss my mental health. I can taste the quiet tap of a pen on paper and their tiny smiles of contempt.
Shame comes in waves. Its not like a scalpel or the cold touch of a surgeons hand. They never tell you that it can eat away at your insides like a virus. (That it eats you alive). Shame is not a symptom of the mentally ill. Its just a side effect.
In my creased hospital dress, I wish for death. The sweetest sleep away from detached, gloved hands and dissociative expressions. The never-ending hostile questions and the silent blame and accusations lying unspoken on dry lips.
You did this. Youre not sick. Youre just a twisted, manipulative lunatic.
Under medication and the slow Novocain drip of sedation, I wish for another disease. I want a tumor in my head something t

Life is hidden behind a clouded rain
But when it clears and leaves free the Earth
All Hell is repelled, and love can give birth
To the soul that can do nothing but gain
Though he may face turmoil and great pain
All of that suffering will soon be worth
The effort, once he starts to laugh with mirth
There is happiness pumping in his veins
Tonight is the night that the fight feels right
And even when his head begins to pound
He finds his sanity in the bright light
Where laughter is heard and love can be found
He'll take the pain and will use all his might
To make sure Earth has found its solid ground
