DriftingSometimes I feel like I'm stranded in a country that speaks
A language I don't speak.
a language I cannot speak.
There's a glimpse of vision in my heart that tells me
that I need to impact this place
and bring good to this society.
I thought I can blend in.
I thought I can represent a difference.
But I can't.
At the end everything I did was running around
Running away from others,
running away from myself,
running away from demands and rules I cannot understand.
I walk around and wander aimlessly
I expose myself to dangers and unknownness.
All just to find
Someone who speaks my language.
Someone who understands me.
At the end, I guess that's all I really want.

"Nuh-uh, it's always around, regardless of the month."
"Bullshit. There's no pervert ghost in those woods."
"Wanna bet ?"
That conversation kept playing in Caleb's mind over and over again as he walked. He was at a bar with his friend Garrett at the time, and they had gotten into the discussion about the local legends. Eventually they had wound up talking about the alleged ghost of the perverted man who lived in the forest around on the west side of town. The story went that there was a man who used to go to bars and linger around, waiting for a man that he saw that he liked. Once he did, he either waited for them to leave or began to talk to them, playing on their likes and dislikes until he drew them away from their group or their drink to play pool or do whatever. The action, though, was once he was alone with them.
This man, who often introduced himself as JC, was rumored to know the best techniques to lead a man out without

Question about world creating:NicaRox2006 asks:Question about world creating:2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hello Mr. Omar, I've been reading your 5c comic and have been a huge fan. I've got a few questions:
How did you build the world? The names of the places, the maps, the social classes, technology etc. It's so very genius! I personally am trying to make my own story/comic, and seeing your comic just inspires me tremendously.
Well this is a tricky question in a way, but I will try to answer it briefly:
Every action should have purpose.
With this thought in mind I created the world for 5th Capsule. I intended it to be a very similar place to our world so that I could play off the familiar things the people already knew. I did this so that people would focus on the characters and not the events of two worlds colliding or anything bigger than that. There are special effects in movies and a similar type thing in illustrated novels.
If I make a world that is totally

Jesse's attention snapped back to the present when she touched his cheek so gently that for a moment he thought he might have imagined it.
"Come on, darlin', I don't want to force feed you, but I will if you make me."
With nothing more than a resigned sigh, he faced her again and opened his mouth. She placed the first spoonful in his mouth. He chewed thoughtfully, recognizing the almost forgotten flavors of chicken noodle soup. All too soon, the bowl was empty but the spoon was replaced by a glass of water which he quickly downed. "Thank you," he said softly as she put the cup down on the tray.
She smiled softly and reached for the tray again .
Until the sound of the doorbell made them both pause.
Love to hear your opinion!The art of storytelling is as boundless and diverse as the stories themselves. With the rise of the digital age and instant communication, story creators can now receive immediate feedback from the audiences. Sometimes, the audience will give critiques and demand changes to the story. Those of you in the gaming community will be familiar with the outrage over Mass Effect 3's ending, and those who love TMNT will know about the dissatisfaction over changing turtles to aliens. If so many people dislike something, should the creators reflect on the audience's critiques and make the necessary changes to please them, or stick to their original vision?Love to hear your opinion!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
