You arrived at your destination, even if it did take you a little longer than expected. You just couldn't shake the image of that blond brit You had bumped into, he didn't seem all to happy about dropping his work, from past experiences anyone else would have shouted at you and told you to watch where you were going but not him. Was everyone here like that, or is he one of those rare few?
You shook your head for the tenth time so you could focus on the job at hand. You were standing in front of what seemed like any other grand bulding in this city, big and looked like it was made of stone. The sandy coloured stone seeming to be a brighter yellow colour than what it would be later on.
Your mission was to infiltrate this place without being spotted and get to some computer with top secret files on the weaponry. The reason the goverment had put these files in the capital city right where everyone could simply enough get in was because it isn't where anyone wanting to obtai

Life not as death but unlife as night is to the summer of the soul/ of a man. Warm breath gone cold, forced to shrivel into a snarl. My prism of thought an artifice of oblivion; a black hole at the heart of every inner sentence, internal monologues disintegrate in hatred, fear and pain. That anguish strains the skin I'm in; a rack of carnal torture, the tearing of tissues, of my self. I claw at my face in torpor; guilt; convulsions of angst, ripping fibres of rage, self consuming self, the gift of life a collapsed imploding star, light so bright it becomes blindingly black.
Time drags, numbs –stops? –my body breaks down into components; part in sleep part in motion. In the darkness of the room a part of me stirs not in body but in spirit, the form of flickering shades deep in the pitch black congeal and rise, with nightmares for blood and malaise for bones, the skin is a rough coarse hide clothed in the bestial furs of a desperate greed; a hunger to fill the void that has formed it.

"Do you want to borrow my scarf, Lovi?" you asked your grumpy friend. You cared for Lovino deeply, and didn't want him to get sick.
"R-Ragazza... T-That's a nice offer, but... no thanks."
"If you say so... Well, there's my apartment complex. See you on Monday!"
"C-Ciao...", and with that he left, still shivering from the cold.
"Thank you for shopping with us! Have a nice weekend!" the cashier of the sewing shop said, and put your purchased things into a white plastic bag.
As you stepped outside you were met with the cold autumn air. Fortunately, you wore a thick jacket and a wool scarf, so it wasn't that bad.
*But what about him, he's probably freezing to death right now...*
With that thought in mind, you went back to your flat.

FX School of Hard Knocks: Intro to the world of Propmaking.
OK a lot of nice people have written to me saying they want to learn how to do what I do and was wondering if I can share some secrets over NOTEs.
I don't want to seem like I'm blowing off you guys who are noobs to the Prop making but there are a few things you need to know before you waste money and time to find out this is not what you had in mind. So this is me giving you a basic picture of what it is like - in words.
First thing you guys need to know is "Prop Making" deals with making REAL LIFE PHYSICAL PROPS THAT ARE MADE WITH CHEMICALS AND A LOT OF MONEY COSTING MATERIALS THAT COULD BE HAZARDOUS TO YOUR HEALTH. We make Real Things that can be seen and touched. We are not making drawings or concept art or some imaginary thing. So anything that is physical will need a lot of production time, creative skill, mental energy and a Whole Lotta materials!
Materials cost money:

Devil!Germany InfoLudwig is a strong devil, not just physically but also mentally, he sorts his own problems any way he can and hates to be saved by anyone when a situation gets out of hand. When fighting his physical strength helps him a lot but he will also use his tail but wrapping it around his foe's leg and trip them up or hold their hands together to leave them relively defenceless.Devil!Germany Info3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
He isn't an all-year-round devil, this form is only seasonal. He first transorms mid October and will change back in the spring. However, he is relivively new to the transforming so doesn't have a set time when he will transform or go back to normal. This irritates him quite a bit, especially when he knows Octuber is coming and he has to make sure he is able to hide his tail and horns well from everyone else during the day.
At night he will become a little unpredictable with his actions, he could be calmly walking around with his devil features hidden or become recklace and wath people from afar. When his tail is out h

She nodded, her expression unfathomable. "Me too."
There was a long pause.
"Just two days ago," I said quietly, avoiding her eyes, "we couldn't even be in the same room without going for each other's throats."
She turned away. "Yeah," she admitted. "But look at us now."
I continued, "And just two months ago we were the best of friends. But look at us now." This time I looked directly at her, smiling mirthlessly.
"But look at us now," she repeated. Her voice was bitter.
I didn't know what to say. We both stood in silence for a while, pretending to listen to the babble of subdued voices from the graduation party.
"You know," she spoke suddenly, "there's nothing about how life is today that I'd have predicted during our last years there." She

Lancelot and Shade came to some grand double doors, Lancelot glanced at Shade,
"Remember what I said,"
"Believe it or not I am good at following orders."
He frowned under his visor and knocked on the door, the sound echoed through the room inside indicating it was very big.
"Enter!" called a voice. Lancelot opened the door and bowed low,
"Forgive the intrusion my Lord but I have found a knight on the outside of the castle village."
"Let me see this knight."
Lancelot stood up straight and opened the doors wide so reveal Shade. She looked all around the room, it was really was big with a very high ceiling, red curtains hung on each side of each tall window and red banners with a golden dragon stitching into them and golden borders around the edges hung in to columns on either side of a walkway leading down to a great throne and upon it sat a rabbit with rich dark brown fur.

SlumberingSomething slumbers deep withinSlumbering3 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
Hiding beneath the thick and thin
Branches stooping high and low
As the screaming winds continue to blow
Low, sweet melodies through the air
The kind that weave magic and that dare
To mess with you, fool you, and even to scare
Just to appease the slumbering beast.
The beast I speak of, that slumbers within
Awakens to chaos with big, fat grin
And although chaotic in nature, we know
It shrinks and shrivels when it suffers a blow
But don't be afraid, take a guess if you dare
And should you figure it out, please do share
Gather us 'round and make us
As to the name of the slumbering beast.
