He goes by many names.
In the Disney Castle, they call him the ghost in the library. A dark formless shape seen to disappear whenever someone enters. A book always gone with him. It comes back later at the price of another one.
In Halloween Town, they call him a poltergeist, since Finkelstein is just used to those stealing books from him, but he's confused as to why this poltergeist hasn't introduced itself to him yet.
Yen Sid doesn't know exactly what to call him beyond "something suspicious going on here." He just knows he isn't absent minded, yet books end up in different places than where he left them last.
Ariel calls him her own absent-mindedness. She'll often lose a treasure, usually something like a globe, for about a week, then find it in the oddest place. But she never suspects it's anything other than a misplacing.
There were those who never questioned and those who were too curious to accept the status quo. Luxord was one of the latter.

He has his back to her. The others, they have already gone inside; but for too long, he had been inside. His crimson form bleeds into dusk's vermillion. Always obscured. Always standing just in the back. Sometime she wonders if this is something simply in all Turks' nature; or if it is simply him. Tseng had been that way too. Quietly, the Cetra reminds herself.
Like Tseng, he knows she's there.
"Why are you here?" There's an unbidden Cetra in his domain. Reserved, again, she is reminded of Tseng; but she is also reminded of the rare occasions the Turk would smile. She has loved those rare moment of serendipity, she cherished them.
I am here because we may be alike.
"I seek a man." His question is responded. She might just have to fight against that tiny flood of rose on her cheeks. Words and interpretations, some can take that on all kind of wrong levels. Pearl white teeth chewing upon dusk, the star of her emerald remains upon him-

There was this empty hole in my mind devouring everything that was left-
I was a soldier.
What did they call it?
I can't for the life of me remember.
Why was I-
A sudden flash of remembrance lit up as a lightning bolt in my head.
My hands were shaking like leafs on a tree in late fall.
What is it that-
No no it wasn't just a gun.
What was it called?
My stomach protested and tried to push out whatever that was in there.
How long since I ate?
Just a forced sound came out, luckily.
Where is it?
I can't find it-
It was like someone had covered up everything with a blanket.
You can't see what's on the other side, just hints of what was behind it.
Just like that it was gone again.
What was I thinking?
What is it that I can't reach?
I'm wearing black leather gloves.
Still shaking I tore off the glove on my right hand-
My gunblade hand.
It was dirty and full of soars and cuts.
I didn't even notice it hurt until

For times untold, the sacred forest of Baalhiam has seen bitter strife between humans and the Elf people. A high magic place, foremost sanctuary of druids and mages, the forest is home to the Elves of Nür. They are the guardians of a powerful magic taking its source at the heart of the old forest.
As human mages came to steal this magic, war broke out. The Elves closed down their borders. They concealed the pathways through Baalhiam with magical spells, driving humans away from their territory. From then on, Baalhiam became a forbidden place for foreigners. Cendre and her family are among the banned people, who soon discover what tragic curse has befallen them. While the immemorial forest is a mighty source of magic, those who are expelled after being born and raised there stand condemned. After several years spent far from the forest, they fall inexplicably ill. Try as she might to fight against it, Cendre loses mother and

Summary: Five sweaty guys, four working showers and no yaoi in sight. I swear!
At least there was a small upside to being held back after class for extra physical training, Cloud grumbled as he twisted the shower handle and was drenched in wonderful, hot water. The run-down, broken tiled trooper showers were empty, all of his fellow troopers having escaped the ShinRa facilities for a Friday night of boozing and partying as soon as they could. But at least, Cloud thought to himself as he twisted the knob for further heat, at least that meant he could get a hot shower after the grueling extra training. Of the ten showerheads in a row, only four gave hot water. It almost made up for being left behind and lonely on a Friday night. Almost. He sighed, and tried to relax his stiff muscles. The training sergeant insisted he was still too small to make the outtake for Soldier and pushed him ruthlessly throu

Who is this insolent being? Who is this insolent being that dares to challenge my might? How does he dare to face one... one who has brought one great nation too many to ruin? It matters not. I am absolute. I shall toy with him. His screams of pain and agony shall prove amusing.
A raven-haired beauty sat upon her throne of obsidian stone. Midnight blue was splashed upon the pitch black through the display of draped silk. Running a delicate hand through her raven tresses, she glanced lazily at the warrior before her. Long lashes fluttered as she rested her head upon a fair hand, displaying nonchalance. Pristine white wings spread out from her back, each emitting a faint glow, giving her an ethereal appearance of an angel. It was deceptively so and one would have perceived so... had it not been for the fire that burned wi

Interview with Endling
Welcome to ASKtheARTIST. My name is *thefluffyshrimp and today I have the great privilege to interview `Endling, an incredibly talented comic artist and creator of many of your favorite series on deviantART.
Thank you for presenting us with this opportunity to interview you, Endling.
Hey all you folks there in AtAChat! Go ahead and start posting questions now.
Thanks for having me Fluff!
I warn everyone I'm on my second triple espresso coffee of the day. If my answers are incoherent and/or jittery you'll know why. I'M WIRED TO GO.
*RedVenture asks "How did you get started doing art, Endling?"
When I was little, my dad would bring home paper from his job. He worked with computers and stuff and often had tons of it lying around, so I'd make use of it and draw. (With his permission. Occasionally.) After a while he noticed I had a habit of doing this. Usually robot caterpillars. I'm not kidding

I am offended, but only silently
and the ugly implications slip through my mind
like quicksilver, burning and
I bristle, but only internally
externally, I am unfazed
I've learned to live with all sorts of dirty things
pretend that ugly words don't bother me
and carry on as if I cannot hear
those derogatory words used so commonly
a generic, blind insult
a blanket adjective
no one thinks before they speak and
it isn't their fault that they don't understand
that words have always been the most powerful weapons
and that a slur is always a slur, regardless of intent
and that to use an ugly term so casually makes forward progress hard to believe
it goes on and on and they don't think
about the true meanings of the words they say
the words they use alternatively to degrade each other and to
identify us, or how the words began and now
I am angry, on the inside only
and adages of sticks and stones go marching through my mind
but I'm learning to ignore them and

When the days got colder, and the nights got longer,
Hope was all I had,
It kept me alive and made me stronger,
Hope isn't all that I have.
You helped me through everything,
And asked for nothing
I always wondered why you did that

I try not to think
Of what happened that week.
My head hurts,
My pillow's wet,
I'm only trying
All the judgment,
All the names,
It's hard to take
All the pain.
I really miss you,
It's driving me nuts
And all I need
Is a hug.
I want to be with you,
Safe in your arms
With you keeping me
From all harm.
I love you
And all I need
Is for you to love me too.

between childhood and adulthood.
Where emotions cascade o'er the
cliffs of dreams not yet fulfilled,
into pools of tiny timeless perfection.
Surrounded by mountains and hills
created o'er the years.
From the sedimentary experiences
Around which playful thoughts
form billowing breezes
that deliver the innocent
rose petal kisses of youth
to the sleepy eyes of morning dew.
Now painted is the picture
of the flawless landscape
love can create.
Which is tucked away
in a remote location.
Only found by
the fearless spirit
possessed within every child.
That resurfaces when we have
found our soul mate.

rush through my mind
I toss and turn the night away
sleep just will not come
Every sound is intensified
as if I was on some exotic drug
My body has a numb tingle
even my bones itch...
Searching the radio
to lull me to sleep
"Damn DJ's talk to much"
Sitting on the edge of the bed
I light a cigarette...
take a deep drag...
Then cough violently
for what seems like hours
Cursing myself, I put it out.
Taking a sip of a dead cola
beside my bed
I turn on the television
Sitting back on my pillows
I find an old Joan Crawford movie...

"WHAT IN THE BLOODY HELL IS GOING ON HERE!" Ciel yelled at the group of wild and obnoxious people including his servants, that stupid prince and Agni, Madame Red, Lau and Ran-Mao, and many more. Everyone looked back at him forgetting about the package. No one spoke a word. Ciel's patience was already thin.
"Sebastian, I order you to tell me what's going on!" Ciel hissed at his butler. Upon those words Sebastian straightened up his suite while still standing on Grell's face and began his long tale of the day with everyone.
The young master had worked Sebastian non-stop with errands today and now it was time to turn in. Sebastian grieving a sigh began to take off his black coat when he felt a letter in his left breast pocket. Pulling it out did he immediately figured out who it was fro

When I feel just like this
With my gut clenching up
Like I once clenched my fists
I'm scared I won't win
And I'm scared it won't work
So I sweat through the night
Giving into the hurt
I want to give it my all
I don't want to give in
But I'm scared I can't make it
So I pretend it's nothing
I want to make this my life
I want to realise my dream
But I'm terrified still
I'm not as good as I seemed
So maybe I'm scared
So I feel just like this

I need help to escape
So you tell me you love me
Like you said that you cared
Right before you last left me
In the cold winter air
Now I need some help living
As I'm losing my way
After all that I'd given
I really thought you might change
But I'm drowning in oceans
That the others all sent
And you're still numb of emotions
Like you're numb of repent
I should have seen it all coming
Should have read all the signs
You are so used to running
That you never were mine

You blocked the bullets from Loz and dodged Yazoo's attacks before you sent Kadaj a kick to the stomach, but he caught it and threw you against the wall. You stood back up, growling under your breath. Kadaj smirked at this and said, "And I thought you'd actually be a challenge."
