Color of BlueWe come, skin tinted the color of frost,Color of Blue2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
Color of cold, color of blue.
They shout, carrying words with the wind, preaching,
"People are equal," but people are lost.
Little lies, the size of snowflakes drift,
Landing on hopes, landing on dreams.
Our hearts, with winter's tears touching it, freeze,
Numbing it until the blood turns blue.
For some, the cold beats them down,
Chilling their warmth, chilling their light.
Their blood, turning into blue ice shatters,
Finally cracking under the pressure.
We're told, with wide expecting eyes,
Reach for better, reach for perfection.
Blue blood, polluting our minds with every expectation,
Only beating for the lies we believe.
We travel, lost in a world of people,
Searching for worship, searching for praise.
The sun, blazing truth on our perma-frosted bodies,
Attempts to make blood the color of love once more.

"Toothless! Toothless stop!"
Laughter disrupted Hiccup's protests to strip away much of their authority. Toothless had the boy pinned on the dewed grass of their cove. Something about the returning spring had put the dragon in a very playful mood.
"What is with you, you deranged reptile?" Hiccup asked with affection. His hands fought to keep the dragon at bay as the beast licked and nuzzled his face.
Hiccup hated a fresh coating of fish-saturated saliva as much as the next Viking, but nothing could dampen his mood on such a beautiful day. The thaw had come early that year; the trees had already budded and the air tasted sweet and warm. Birds returned to the cove after a winter's absence and danced overhead, echoing Hiccup's laughter with chirps of their own.
"Toothless stop" Hiccup said again. Toothless did not heed his command. The dragon's teeth had extractedthough Hiccup would be

-Find a piece of plywood at a hardware store (Home Depot or Lowes works)
*Make sure that the plywood, when standing up, reaches to at least your shoulder*
-The dimensions of the plywood will vary per person, but rectangle sized ones are good
*IMPORTANT!!!* MAKE SURE THAT THE PLYWOOD IS NOT TOO BILLOWED! (Billowed, meaning the wood curves).
-Purchase spray paint for the sword.
-I recommend black matte, silver, and (you may have to go to an art supply store for this one) a gold paint pen.
-Start by drawing out the plan for your sword whether it be on the wood or on a piece of paper.
-> There are no specific dimensions of the sword, but have the handle reach up to about your shoulder, and have the edge of one of your swords cutting down on a diagonal to give it a point.

Girl as PoemShe was once a verse by BaudelaireGirl as Poem3 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
something about flowers
that were loyal to none
and I kissed her
when no one was watching.
She was a stanza by Byron
who stood on
the white cliffs of somewhere
and praised her eyebrows.
She is nothing like summer
or a lost continent;
is too bold for that.
Her shoulders are not
or a battle to be won.
I thought she was a poem -
or maybe an ode
or sonnet -
words teased and woven
that beat and bled
upon my humble pen,
not the flesh and blood
of thighs and hips
ripening beneath my gaze,
waiting to be written.

The Human SolutionThe Human Solution:The Human Solution2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Ladies and gentlewolves, I come before you today,
To speak on an issue that is close to our hearts.
For many centuries, we Wolves have struggled;
Continuing to seek a final solution to 'the Human Problem'.
Many of you might have heard of the horror stories,
Of these furless creatures lurking in the outer reaches.
Some cities have found them living in underground caverns;
Preying upon the young pups that stray too close to their nests.
It is sad, to say the least, but that sorrow ends today;
For it is my privilege and honour as Chairman of Lycanthropes United,
To unveil our newest means of combating this parasitic pandemic.
Three months ago our top scientist, Doctor Uriel Whitetail,
Discovered a particular genetic weakness in the Human cell structure,
When sprayed with this particular gas, 'Cynofium',
The human cells stop producing an important chemical;
Causing a quick death in mere moments...
As of today our soldiers are already prepared,
They will be

It was two years later, a pouring autumn night, the air clear and thick with the dampness of rain. Arthur's birthday had come and gone, twice, resulting in a nine year old, only slightly taller little boy, with a fondness for football, gardening, tea and embroidery. He knew now what the word 'gay' meant, knowing that his some of his hobbies, particularly his love for sewing and roses, reinforced his brother's belief that he was just that. They still called him that word, but now he just hit them even harder and shouted things at them, like he did when he was little. But he knew all the swear words now, so it was even better.
Arthur sat back into his seat, arms folded tightly over his thin chest and dark brows furrowed more than the average nine year olds' should be. He shuffled before fiddling with his seatbelt and he reached over to click it out.
He scowled as his aunt's piercing gaze bit into his forehead and his arms returned to his lap. He played with the wind
Equus AbsurdusIn keeping with my ranting about aggravating animals in fantasy, I think I shall rant about horses. The second most overly romanticized and anthropomorphized animal galloping around DA, second only to wolves. And heck, the ol' Equus Absurdus may give Lupus Bardus a run for his money. This will be less pointing out ineptitude in storytelling and rampant cliche, and more about doing your friggin' homework before you write or draw horses. And watching Spirit doesn't count.Equus Absurdus6 years ago in Historical More Like This
I'll be pretty blunt about the art side of things. Horses are Hard To Draw, and they are the Gods of being Hard To Draw. The only thing that I think might be harder is dinosaurs. (She said smugly.) Or possibly deer. When the grand masters of the Renaissance and contemporary master artists alike are stumped by rendering the correct pose of horses in flight, you bow before the king of hard art.
