Begging my wrist
For one chaste
Grinning at me, that evil smirk
Making my heart pound
So sharp so
I know I

Arm’s too full of blood
From attempts to

People, New Things and NOT FOREVER ALONESo there's this guy I met at a gig last year, with black/red/blonde hair, multiple piercings and is the bassist of a local band. Last night, via Facebook, we found out that we actually live in the same village. Then he asked me if I wanted to go out with him today, which I did. This turned into an epic day-trip involving going to an art gallery, going on a train, seeing Oblivion at the cinema and meeting some of his friends. His friends were kick-ass awesome! We walked around as like a group of twelve emo/goth kids, they were all really friendly! Of course they joked about me a little bit, because I was the youngest there and was the only one with their natural hair color/without any piercings. Two of the boys there were really funny, especially when one of them yelled at the other, "Dude! This is worse than that time you asked me for head!" I feel like I've found my people.People, New Things and NOT FOREVER ALONE2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Free, Big Hero 6, and Another ExtractGood news; if/when I release The Girl Who Collected Dead Things as an e-book, it will be free for all! This is because my awesome aunt has very kindly agreed to buy me a notebook laptop, which was what I needed money for, and I have always said that I wouldn't write for profit unless I really needed to (this is because I want my writing to be accessible to everyone, and I think it's kinda rude/presumptuous of me to ask people to pay for my humble offerings). I just thought I'd keep you guys updated on that front. Currently, I am around three quarters of the way through the first draft. I'm so excited for you guys to read the finished thing!Free, Big Hero 6, and Another Extract7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Last night, I was feeling really kinda down and bored, so I went online and watched Disney's Big Hero 6. Oh my god, it was so cute I almost died. I know, I know; an eighteen-year-old should not be watching Disney cartoons, but seriously - it was actually fantastic. I cried in parts, I literally laughed out loud in parts, and the
Hiding/Showing Scars in PublicHello guys. This is my first topic of hopefully many to come.Hiding/Showing Scars in Public2 years ago in Personal More Like This
As a self harmer, hiding your scars/wounds can be the most annoying, but hardest thing. You always find yourself worrying about how to hide it, and finding ways to hide it. Especially in the summer, this can be a hard thing. Because you don't want to sweat your face off, but at the same time, you're too worried about someone seeing what you did to yourself.
Showing your scars and coming out of your shell can sometimes be overwhelming. You're so concerned about what others will think, but showing your scars could be awareness.
A lot of people still don't know what we go through and hiding it doesn't help. Your scars are a part of you, and they are in the past. You should be proud of what you survived. If people ask you about it, just stay calm and try to explain the best you can. If you don't want to talk about it, say that it's something that happened in the past and you don't want to talk about it. People
Coincidences, Walking and BatsYou'll never guess what I found out today! Link's dad was really good friends with my mum/aunt/uncle when they were growing up; like, they went to each other's birthday parties and hung out. Thus it turns out that when Link and I were toddlers we used to play up at the local park together. So really I've actually known him since I was a baby. Heh, it's a small world.Coincidences, Walking and Bats2 years ago in Personal More Like This
We walked his dog, Daisy, together today. The only downside was that when he was walking up to my front door my granddad saw him smoking and damn near flipped out at me. Other than that though, we had an awesome walk! I wore a baggy MCR t-shirt and leggings, with my Green Day hoodie tied around my waist. Of course, being the crafty fellow that he is, Link used the knot of my hoodie to pull me along a bench to be right up close to him so we could kiss and shit. At one point I complained about my fatness, to which he was just like, "are you fucking kidding me? You're beautiful." For some reason it came up in conversation tha
Taking a Break + Story PrologueI have decided that I am going to take a break from dA for a little while - I'm not precisely sure for how long, but I thought I ought to inform my family of watchers. The main reason behind this is that I've been lacking motivation recently; all I've been doing during the day is hiding under my duvet with my eyes shut and skipping a shit-tonne of college. I guess you could say that I'm feeling kinda depressed, but I'm okay. I just need a little break, that's all. The other reason behind my hiatus is that I want to focus on writing something novel length. My idea's working title is 'The Girl Who Collected Dead Things', and is told from the point of you of a naive, loyal sixteen-year-old who is trying to help her older, mentally ill best friend come into the world more, rather than obsessing over death and dead things. I've got a short prologue - take it as a farewell gift:Taking a Break + Story Prologue8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Three Years, Possible e-book, and ExtractTomorrow is three years to the day that I lost my mother to cancer. To be honest, I'm really struggling with it. It's the first year that I have struggled with it, and I know that sounds cold, but I think it's because the first year I was too numb still to really register it (and I was on a million different anti-depressants/anti-anxiety pills), then last year I just tried to ignore it, but this year I'm trying to face it. I think this means I'm starting to heal. In fact, I know it does. Up until very recently, I couldn't even mention her name or look at photographs of her; now, I bring her up in conversation with my nan, and I have five framed photographs of her in my bedroom. My nan, aunt, and I are all going down to the town of Poole tomorrow, to be with my uncle for the day (all the family mentioned are on my mother's side), so that will be nice.

Thank YouI am still very much on hiatus (and think I shall be until at least mid-March, when the anniversary of my mum's death and Mothers' Day are both well over), however I checked in today to see something quite remarkable; a piece I posted not too long ago has become a daily deviation! I'm not gonna lie - I cried. DeviantArt has been a part of my life for over three years, and has seen me through some of the hardest and brightest parts of my life. I've made lifelong friends here. And I can remember when I first started writing poetry on here at age fourteen, that it was my aim to one day get a DD - it was on my bucket list, in fact, and now it can be ticked off! The kindness and support that this website has shown me has overwhelmed me again and again, so thank you. All of my watchers, whether you've been watching me for three years or three minutes, thank you.

Why My Science Teacher Thinks I'm a SlutToday, I very nearly died.Why My Science Teacher Thinks I'm a Slut3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Cause of death? Embarrassment.
I was sat next to Lookalike (my male best friend) and I was writing on his arm in bright red, the words, 'CHEAP MAN WHORE' in reference to a trip to the cinema a couple of days ago. Whilst this was happening we were having a delightful discussion about love bites and various other incriminating things, as we always do. What we didn't know was that your science teacher, a terrifying Scottish man with a horrific temper, was watching/listening in on the whole thing. He snapped when I yelled, 'WANKER' at Lookalike for the entire school to hear.
We were sent to his classroom. This is where the true embarrassment began.
Long story short, it kinda felt like he was giving us 'The Talk'. Here is probably the highlight quote from Mr Daly the Science Teacher:
"Don't be corrupted by teenage lust and smut."
And now my science teacher thinks that I am a) a dirty-talking slut and b) going out with my best friend. Oh the shame.
AMBER SNIPPY'S FATE?I've had that dream again.AMBER SNIPPY'S FATE?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
That strange place, so distant, yet so close to my heart. Buildings as tall as mountains.
Dead structures, watching with dead eyes. Empty, vast and endless honeycombs of stone and steel. Air filled with gray ashes, always fluttering from the cloudy sky.
The black vortex opens up in the sky, descending down to the city. The vortex spiral rips the city apart, bending the air itself, feasting on light, feasting on time.
There is a lonely figure standing in the street.
No matter how hard I try to make out his or her expression, I cannot. Is there no face there at all? Or perhaps there is a million human faces there, intertwined and flickering in unison, as bright as the light of ten thousand suns?
The being stares into the abyss of the vortex.
It takes another step towards it, into the horizon of nothingness, into a place where nothing can exist.
The stones of the roadway beneath its feet crumble and flutter in t

The doctors told him that this is going to last about a week.#Pray4Adam2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Fluttershy the shy pony,
was very shy.
And if you ever saw her,
She would probably cry.
All of the other ponies,
used to laugh and call her names.
They never let poor Fluttershy, play in any pony games.
Then one foggy fabulous eve, Celestia came to say,
"Fluttershy with your spirit so bright, won't you send this letter to Twi?"
Then all the ponies loved her, and they shouted out with glee
Fluttershy the shy pony,
You'll go down in the elements of har-mo-neyyyyyy!!!

This article aims to highlight some of the more useful tools that you can find in Camera RAW. It's doesn't cover everything, and purely focuses on the useful things for the image used. But hopefully it will give a bit of insight and maybe even highlight something that you haven't used before...
This tool will save your life. Honestly. I'm not exaggerating! Whilst it is possible to 'over' soften an image, most of the time all that's required to reduce a little noise is to up the luminance slider just a little bit.
Auto White Balance
Quite often , the white balance can be the only thing that upsets an image. In the example that I'm using, the day was fairly dull but the whiteness of the sky was quite overpowering. Therefore the clarity of the image turned out to be weaker than I wanted and the light 'harsher.' Using 'Auto White Balance' gave it an Autumnal sort of feel and a tinge of orang
