Slender ManI was not always like this
This body isn't mine.
I changed when I was sent there-
My payment of his fine.
My arms, there's far too many.
My face has disappeared.
I've come to the conclusion
I'm something to be feared.
My woods are dark and lonely.
People come here sometimes.
They walk along the dark roads
Just taking their sweet time.
Often they find strange pictures
Of terrifying things
I attempt to help them but
I cannot stand their screams.
The static noise just follows,
They hear it, look, and run.
I guess my debt's been paid,
Because now I have no one.
The Awakening Ch2. Old Friends ~Sneak Peek~UpdatedA gentle thrum beat the warm air of the glade. Caught in the rhythmic flow of the steady in-land winds, the dense greenery whispered and swayed in lazy waves. The sun’s brilliant light swept down and over the field, catching the beauty of the vibrantly colored blossoms that speckled the slope in a range of blue hues. The soft buzz of pollinating insects and animals hummed above the lively growth.The Awakening Ch2. Old Friends ~Sneak Peek~Updated8 months ago in Scraps More Like This
Above the warm chorus of activity, a song wove its way through the air, as fair and graceful as the mountain stream and as warm and friendly as the sunrise; set to a fluid and sinuous rhythmic beat, it rolled across the field in a majestic thrumming wave.
A white paw swept gently over one of the blue blossoms. The sleek, coal-black talons slowly caressed the flowery crown as the flora swayed gently with the angelic hymn.
“Come once more the breaking day
Come again the sun
Warm the lands with your sweet rays
This wondrous day begun”
The paw gentl
COLLEGE ESSAY+PLEASE CRITIQUEOnce a child of cliches, I ate my words.COLLEGE ESSAY+PLEASE CRITIQUE5 years ago in Scraps More Like This
Was an overweight proud-to-be American.
Digested one too many talk radio sessions.
Frequently brushed my teeth, forgot to floss.
Woke up with morning breath.
Born through teenage parents,
Put up for adoption.
Taken in affection, unrequited;
Childhood scribbles on the wall
Told of my life story.
Made love for the first time and knew
What it was to write poetry.
Bored of the forwardness in prose;
Became a fan of haiku and freeform.
Lost interest in high school.
Read John Galt's speech -
Best two hours of my life.
Stumbled into class late;
Pondered objectivism in detention.
Cursed Ayn Rand.
Snuck out at night; lost my shoes.
Went skinny dipping; lost my clothes.
Gave in to desire; lost humility.
Second guessed religion; lost God.
Learned the ways of passion; discovered magic.
Household turned warzone.
Fought for gay marriage
And an allowance.
Score one for homosexuality.
Zero for my bank account.
Began having exclus
Take me seriously. Don't take me too seriously.Did you read "Extrasuperfabulous" and worry because a few characters of yours had traits on that list near the beginning? Slow down, take a deep breath, and then keep reading. There's no need to take my resource too seriously. So before you panic, consider this: my characters exhibit warning signs. And I'll prove it. Here's the list, italicized and annotated with notes about which characters fit which parts of it.Take me seriously. Don't take me too seriously.2 years ago in Scraps More Like This
I'll put in a quick chibi of each character so you can visualize these people. From left to right are Rose, Dark, Zaen, Kirrah, and Athryl.
Here are some warning signs of a Mary Sue or Gary Stu. While you can have a non-Mary Sue character with them, a pileup of too many can be a bad thing.

Color NotesWhat is Color?Color Notes4 years ago in Scraps More Like This
As you probably know, color is what we call the the sensation produced by the brain when our eyes react to light.
Read that definition carefully. In it, you need (1) Your eye to react to light and (2) For your brain to interpret the information you get from your eyes in a sensation. Sometimes the second part, the interpretation, is what befuddles the first part. Your brain overpowers what you actually see. Oranges are not just orange; apples are not just red. They have purplish browns, yellows, tan colors.
Qualities of Color
Let's back track for a moment to some essentials of color. Color has three qualities:
1. Value: The lightness or darkness of a color. (If the image was converted to black and white/grayscale would it be black, white, light or dark grey?)
2. Hue: This would be the color name would be most closely associated with the color, like red, blue, yellow-green.
3. Saturation/Purity/Intensity: This is the brightness or dullnes

The Horror of the Tyggjóbleikt (Violet Devil)
Information recovered and translated by the Holy Canon Empire
This is one text copy from a set of journals archiving the horrendous crimes and misdeeds performed by the Tyggjóbleikt, a horrendous monster that takes the guise of a woman to create a façade of innocence and then enslaves and torments other creatures for its own sadistic pleasure. The Tyggjóbleikt also chooses one of its slaves to be a type of food source as it feeds off the emotions of loyalty, making the slave obey the Tyggjóbleikt, and love, strengthening the control of the slave by having him develop feeling for it. Here are some reasons why the Tyggjóbleikt is the abomination that it is proclaimed to be as it had been observed by the divine recorder himself, who through his bravery and sacrifice gave us the knowledge to face the horrendous threat through his many journals.
Here is the evidence of the Tyggjóbleikt sins and actions. The inf
Letters - iDear United States Government,Letters - i4 years ago in Scraps More Like This
I pray that you will not find yourself alarmed by my sudden and unexplainable disappearance. I did not mean to cause any uproar among your agents or personnel. I will also state that any efforts you make to find me at present will yield no results as I am apt to hide myself and my family with ease.
Under normal circumstances, I would not think of evading government officials, but due to your selective deafness to my opinions, I find this to be the only reasonable way of correspondence with you. Though you may lack some communication with me, I intend to address your concerns of what I am, who I am, and what harm I can do you in a completely truthful manner, to which I am accustomed.
Much of I what I tell you, you'll be adverse to believe, but I hope to explain those things that are foreign to you, and were very foreign to me some years ago, with utmost clarity. It is quite unfortunate, however, that I must write this letter as I am escaping, and thus, I h
