"Why didn't you tell me?"
He wouldn't meet my gaze or respond.
"I'm sorry!" he blurted. "I assumed you knew!"
I snorted. "Bollocks, nobody tells me anything. Why ever would you think that my mother would tell her own daughter squat?"
We were in the attic and I had cornered him against the far wallI was fed up with not knowing and being treated like a child, and Benjamin was practically cowering from the vehemence of my ire.
"I already told you I was sorry!" he cried out. "What else do you want me to say, Sara?"
"So you're trying to tell me that during all the hours we've spent together, you never once thought to mention that Aunt Jo was trying to smuggle you out of the goddamn country? I thought we were supposed to tell each other thingscommunicate our feelings; that's what friends do! But instead you go slinking about, keeping secrets from me, just like everyone else!"

Several hours after the fight, something happened and that I am sure ofit couldn't have been a dream, could it? I had fallen asleep at my desk in the process of looking at an old photo album; my face was pressed against the glossy pages as I slept. I had been crying, I know that for certain. But I remember the house was quiet; everyone was asleep, for it was the early hours of the morning. But then I heard the back screen door open and close, steps striding across the parlor and up the stairs. They were familiar, very much so. They stopped in the hallway, hesitant.
The voice was hardly even a whisper, though I didn't respond since I was scarcely consciousalmost asleep, but not quite. But I heard it again, and then the footsteps paused at my door. "Sara, are you awake? I need to tell you something."
I must have mumbled something incoherent, because I heard him sigh, then walk into my room.

to all the people who have ever considered suicideThere is always a reason to keep fighting. I do not care how pitiful your life is, how seemingly insignificant, how painfulyou do matter. You matter to someone: perhaps it's your mother, your father, your friend. Perhaps it's someone you haven't even met yet, but that's part of the adventure, isn't it? There is always something more to come. Every human life is so incredibly and insurmountably precious. And I will not sit here and tell you that there are people who have it worse than you, because that's silly and useless. In your world, you feel alone and desperate and you feel as if nothing, nothing could ever make you feel happy or even functional again, and that is your world. You feel as if your life, your universe, everything you ever thought about yourself and the people around you is crumbling and crashing down. But I can guarantee that it will get better. I promise you. I promise.to all the people who have ever considered suicide3 years ago in Personal More Like This

He cringed as he breathed and I suddenly felt the need to scream at somebody, at anybody. I needed someone else to blame beside the Führerbesides myself.
"Don't cry," he whispered, touching my face.
I smeared the tears away with the back of my hand. "Why, Benjamin? Why ever shan't I cry?"
"Because " he averted his eyes for a moment, looking almost guilty. "It may sound mad, but I feel I feel as though it was always meant to end this way I was born to die."

Our London deviantMEET Was Brilliant!On Saturday, June 14, 2009, deviantART held a deviantMEET at the Albert Memorial in Hyde Park. Over 350 deviants showed up to celebrate all things deviantART, setting a record for the highest attended deviantMEET in history in the process... until now.Our London deviantMEET Was Brilliant!3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Almost exactly three years later -- on Saturday, June 30, 2012 -- at the same location in Hyde Park, London deviants once again turned up in droves. Smashing the previous record, our London deviantMEET 2012 saw over 550 deviants throughout the day.
Most deviantMEETs include a group photo, usually taken towards the end of the event's festivities. However, we wasted no time taking our group shot in front of the Albert Memorial, as we wanted to ensure we were complying with Hyde Park's rules and regulations for large gatherings. With a group this massive -- and awesome -- it's hard not to draw attention!

Benji/Sara Couple Interviewstolen from :iconshivverz:Benji/Sara Couple Interview3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, pick your couple.
Sara and Benjamin
Answer the following questions from the guy's perspective (or, in the case of same sex couples, the one who wears the pants in the relationship or whoever you want to go first )
1. What exactly was it about your partner that you're attracted to?
I really love how different she is from most girls. She honestly scared the living hell out of me at first, but in the best possible way of course. She also has a wonderful sense of humor- her sarcasm is very refreshing.
2. So, here's a scenario for you: some guy is hitting relentlessly on your significant other? What do you do?
uhm... I...I don't... I wouldn't...be...happy... I might... er... go up to the fellow and make him feel uncomfortable... I can do that...
3. Where did they take their significant other to on their first date?
We never really had a first date. As you may know, our circumstances aren't exactly normal. But I su

Why Authors Kill Off CharactersI can actually answer this question, at least for myself. Coming from the perspective of a hopefully-soon-tobe-published author, I think killing off main characters is a sign of maturity as a writer. When authors coddle their characters and give them whatever they want, the end result is often spoiled, hard-to-relate-to characters who get happy endings handed to them on a silver platter. Take Twilight, for example. In all four 400-600 page novels, not one pivotal "good" character dies. And what are we left with? Little character development, no themes or lessons to be learned, and the acute feeling that the books were more like fairytales with all the characters skipping off into the sunset hand-in-hand. Admit it: you remember a book that made you cry more than a book that made you smile. Every classic novel that has withstood the test of time features some sort of death, agony, suffering or all of the above. Suffering builds character. And sometimes, killing a character is necessary fWhy Authors Kill Off Characters3 years ago in Personal More Like This

"Would you care to accompany me to the veranda for a cigarette?" he asked. "There's one on the second floor, and it's getting a bit stuffy in here."
I agreed, and soon we were standing out on the lanai, elbows leaning upon the cool iron, the brisk summer wind rustling the ivy that crawled up the side of the railing. Klaus pulled a pack of cigarettes from his waistcoat pocket along with a lighter. Imprinted in the copper were the letters K&K, and suddenly I wanted to ask him what had happened the other day—what Heinrich had said about choosing the Gypsy over him. I didn't have time to ask though, because K

"No, I mean, of course I like her, but I might rather like her, too. I don't know, it's ridiculous, isn't it? Sod it, what am I thinking- fancying Sara? I shouldn't even be here, and now- God, I'm such an idiot, I should have never told you. You're mad, aren't you? You're mad. Yell at me, then. Please. I feel horrid why aren't you doing anything? You should be scolding me- I can't be taken with her! It's not right! I- why are you laughing?"

Response: I don't hate disneyIn response to my last journal, people have been getting pissy and protective, and I get that. I just want to say that I've always loved disney: I grew up with it, it's inspired my art and I think that all of their movies have many good points to bring. However, part of growing up consists of seeing the flaws in the stuff you love. You've got to try to shake free of the blindfold of nostalgia and be willing to see that even your most beloved franchises engage in some pretty shitty stuff. All I want is to help mold a more diverse, accepting world for me and eventually my children to live in, and what better place to start than animation?Response: I don't hate disney2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Benjamin Jastrow : Altruism or Self-Abnegation?An important point in the characterization of Paper Stars is that each character has one very important characteristic that defines them as a person and influences their day to day lives. Each of these traits are supposed to be both the character's greatest asset and their greatest flaw. They both build the character up and destroy their progress. And in this journal, I wannted to share with my readers an in-depth analysis of Benjamin Jastrow.Benjamin Jastrow : Altruism or Self-Abnegation?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Easily the antithesis of Sara, Benjamin's defining characteristic is his altruism, and all of his other traits are influenced by it or are a result of it. His mild, gentle nature is centered around his carnal fear of causing others discomfort, which, in turn, becomes his own discomfort. His kindness is not limited to only those he cares for--it stretches to all those he meets, even when they are cruel to him, and he willingly shoulders the blame for any and all grievances around him. He is a human scapegoat, an alacritous martyr willing to give u
