Heavily Booked for AwhileAll Trades, Commissions, Collabs, Requests and such are now CLOSED.
I'm going to be booked for a long time. o -o
I have approximately 20 different works of art to do, unless someone I notified decides that they would not like art from me at this time.
First of all, my art trade with Deirdre. c:
Then I start on the 19 or so pieces that I will post as soon as I finish them.
Holy mackerel. o- o
I've never had this much to do before. xD
Welp, time to get started.
The reason I have so much to do is because when *KatWithKnives needed financial aid, I told her that anyone who donated a minimum of $5 to her cause would get free art from me.
There were 19 people who donated, the sweethearts. c: I'm just really glad everything worked out for her and her mom and grandmom.
It's nice to have an art goal now, since I've been drawing absolutely nothing for like a month now. > ->
Perhaps I just needed a list of things to do. A BIG LIST.
Well, that's all I have to say for now
The Sorrow of DifferenceDisowning a pet? But you told him every creature has a soul... Every creature but me...?The Sorrow of Difference4 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
What happened to the early mornings I would jump upon your bed, and kiss your face until you awoke with laughter? Now all you do is bellow curses straight into my furry little ears! Even as guilt broke out upon my face, you still pointed to the bedroom door.
What happened to us living alone, best friends in the world you titled "lonely"? You've gotten a boyfriend, one who "loves" dogs. Have you ever thought about what he does when you are not at home? The abuse that leaves small scars? He told you I was clumsy, even after you knew I certainly was not, and you believed him.
Some say you thought with your heart, believing in that boy. I know that you did not, for you left me for him. We had gone through so much, and you threw away our memories, just because I am a different species?
I thought you would come through for me, I thought that you would remember me. Instead, you left with him and adopted a

It truly breaks your heart
The day that someone dies,
It's not an easy part of life.
It's not only the pain of death,
But the agony of truly
Releasing your grips
And cutting your ties
To who has left this realm.
The memories you've held onto,
The wonderful times you've had,
Pacts you've made to stay together
For eternity, to stay close in touch,
The wonders and downsides,
All seem to pull away from you.
You hold tightly to them
While everyone tells you to let go.
You tell them "I know"
But you can't just accept it.
It's impossible to forget someone
Who added so much to your life.
Someone who stood by your side.
Someone who accepted you from the start.
After the shock, comes the sorrow.
You remember everything
That you'd meant to tell them,
And how you've missed your chance.
It's odd, how could that chance be gone?
You start to doubt such a thing,
Doubt the inevitable. Doubt the end.
You tell yourself "I'll see them come morrow.
Just like usual. They can't rea
Heart TattooSome people found it cute. Others found it repulsive that a girl so young should have one, that it was too early for her. But they didn't know the story behind it, nor did they know of its existence.Heart Tattoo3 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Jennifer is only 11 years old, a total sweetheart in the least, and very polite and respectful. That's how she was raised to be by her mother, for a short time.
You see, when Jennifer was only 7, her mother fell victim to cancer. They had had it under control for years, yet it had sparked up and caused immense pain on the whole family. Jennifer's mother saw her fate closing in as she sat on the hospice chair beside the window. She had a perfect outlook of the forest lining in the horizon and realized that she wanted Jennifer to have a pure memory of her mother.
She'd known it would have a terrible effect on her family, especially Jennifer. So, she called her husband in and asked him to do her one final favor. "Take Jennifer, and go out to get her a tattoo. Please, get her the most gorgeous
Dividing LineThe only thing in my mind was "Get to that door". It was as if that door was the very dividing line between life and death, which it may be. I'm sprinting as fast as I ever could, hoping to some being that I make it in time. Anything else in my mind would be the horrible agony that would catch up with me, if the trailing creature racks its claws through my back.Dividing Line3 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
That creature. Ice-blue eyes and peachy tan scales swirling with white surrounding those eyes. Doesn't really seem scary until you really look at it. Beneath those incredible eyes are lengthy thin fangs of white and yellow. Huge foot-long claws hang from rather small paw-like fingers. Not only the that, the six muscular legs and tail are sure to tear your speed to shreds. The second its eyes meet yours, you have about five seconds of a head-start before it chases after you with the speed of two cheetahs.
So here I am, fleeing for my life, praying that these aren't my last breaths, aren't my last heartbeats. My feet are pounding
DecisionStanding on the sidelines, watching life go by,Decision3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
It's actually hard to believe, that I will ever die.
I've heard and seen it happen all before, the life that they lose,
How people come and go in the lives they cannot choose.
They rant and vent about the problems that they face,
And how they have no choice in this moment's place.
The changes that they endure, and the pain hidden deep inside,
These people are so broken, lost without their pride.
They're drowning in this doubt and debt that they cannot seem to pay,
Others obsessed with money and greed and cannot hear a say,
A simple plea for help in need and signs that desire an aid,
Driven to a point of yearning a hand to hold in this mess they've made.
All humanity's name is tarnished in this battle of what is right,
People lost in reasoning for which path to take forms light.
The light that banishes all darkness in this day and time,
It is still hidden behind this greed that forms a crime.
So as this world is found in its difficult time

Flowing just outside the house,
Gliding down through the air like tiny crystal doves;
The grass drowned out by the fresh glitter.
Swirls of snow become endless as the wind whisks it about frantically and faster.
Edge up beside the windowsill,
The glass has become a blank white canvas, empty of its original artwork.
The landscapes appear to melt away in fear of the white barrage,
All meaning of staying is undefined, as is any attempt to face it.
The world becomes

Hold Your HandAs I hold your hand,Hold Your Hand4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
I hold your heart.
I see you nearly every day. You've been becoming less and less cheerful. Your smile has faded to an apathetic expression, a blank stare, a lost thought. I keep my mouth quiet as I whisper to you how much I still care, but it doesn't seem to effect you. You can't see through what they've said, what they think, you can't see me standing right before you. You can't even see me. Your grip on my hand loosens over time, and you seem about to release me. Your heartbeat is slower, weaker. Unwilling to continue the rhythm, you are changing the song.
As I hold your heart,
I hold your breath.
You can't bear to speak to me anymore. I call your name, and you turn to look. When you notice it was my voice singing out your name, you freeze. You drop your sights to the ground and you hold in your air. You don't want to see me. You fear the intake of a breath, as I might see right through your charade. You are acting so differently.
You see, lately, I feel like a

And so I say, Rest In Peace, Chris. We held one another's hearts, and as you left, you took a piece of mine and left me with a bit of yours. Maybe now, you're with your soulmate, Sonia, and you can finally tell her what life was like. I only wish you could have stayed here in the in-between long enough so that I could meet you in Chicago by the lake, as we'd planned. I forgive you, though, I know you would apologize. I just miss your gentle voice. I kept a recording of when you said "i love you too" in Japanese, back when we were together.
So today, I visited the lake and sat on the hill beside it, like I always do. The skylights reflected off of it, I wish you could have seen it, it was rather breath-taking.
I already miss you. I kept feeling like "I feel like calling Chris right
