It was late on a very rainy September day as a man walked down a street, drenched and soaked from the sudden downpour
that came out of nowhere. Tired from a long day at a dead end job, he took a slow walk to his home which was a block away.
He thought about his life and where it was going as people started to stare and judge him as they ran and walked by, some
wondering 'why doesn't he have an umbrella, or why is walking so slow?' But he didn't care much about their opinions, he
just wanted to be left alone.
After ten minutes of walked through heavier rain, puddles of water that reached up to his ankles, and more stared and views,
he finally reached his hobble of a home, an old studio apartment that was given to him by his best friend before he pasted away

Draco's Quest part 1: The Two Common Dragons.
Centuries ago there was in a kingdom called Lutaria that was inhabited by two races, the Purebloods or humans and the Feralbloods which where anthropomorphic beings. During the dark time known as the "Purification War" the Purebloods won control over the Feralbloods with their use of magic, their advanced weaponry, and their ability to use vast numbers. The Purebloods were able to dominate over the Feralbloods as the ruling race. Many feral bloods where killed or tortured while the more peaceful ones accepted this fate and became serfs under the Pureblood rule. Soon however that was all to change.
There was in Lutaria two dragon feral blooded farmers that lived outside the kingdom. The eldest was known as Zab and he was the father of the second dragon Draco. Zab and Draco were peaceful dragons. Both also were experts in agriculture and trading, Zab and Draco would often sell their crops to the neighboring kingdom to make a

Often we find ourselves feeling unhappy, feeling depressed and weepy (some would say whiny), but the truth is that all of us feel undeniably shitty. Therefore, having plenty of experience in this area, I have taken it upon myself to present to you this simple guide.
Righto, you all want to be happy, but none of you are. You've tried several things:
1. Posted a shitty status on Facebook hoping someone will pay attention to you.
2. Cried after no one liked your post because you have no friends.
3. Submitted your post to DA secrets so they could use it.
4. Felt better for about 30 seconds since people faved your secret.
5. If 4 didn't apply, you cried about it some more and then went to Tumblr for the next six hours.
My dear friends, this cycle is not the solution. You are not making yourself feel better, you are making all of our art look worse, especially with step 3! Hence,

My brother was smiling stupidly at me, but I can't blame him, he loved his birthday. Next to him, was Germany, serious as always, and Japan, was standing by the window, looking at the already gone twilight. Luckily France wasn't at sight, but America and England were there, at a corner arguing, like always. I looked around again to see if I missed anyone, but no.

I picture you instead.
I wasn't there to know it,
But I took his age-old hand,
And squeezed the dying fingers
As you left me once again.
You aren't here to see it,
But nobody's new again.
If I were you and you were me,
We'd think we were the same.
Bu if I dared to tell you,
You'd just have to disagree,
Not because you think it wrong,
But because it came from me.
And through the night we traverse
In the mystery of dark,
Walking through the histories
and piecing broken hearts.
I can't quite see, I need your eyes,
I need your helping hand.
The words rang true within our hearts,
But fell false within our heads.
We weren't quite there to see it,
But we once worked hand-in-hand.
I can't discern what happened,
But it won't come true again.
We were falling through a city
That was crafted pure of glass
Where we held true together
But we knew it wouldn't last.
I can't quite feel, I need your heart,
I need the mind of gold.
