Strangely Beautiful, Chapter 3This drive is beginning to kill me. Thirty hours in the drive, thirty minutes into my Mom's favorite country CD and sleep is failing me. We'd stopped a few hours ago to get roughly three hours of sleep. All of which David stayed awake talking to himself. As he's finally falling asleep, Mom turns down her music, and looks at me. I can see the worry in her eye as I turn away and look out my window. What are my problems to her? I'd gotten over her rash decision. But I haven't gotten over her choice of location. Why with family? Why with people that I have openly hated all my life? Why couldn't we just settle down somewhere in Florida and take the short drive to Georgia a week before Christmas?
"Violet, please. Talk to me." She pleads, place a hand on my shoulder.
"Eyes on the road. I don't wanna die before we get to my deathbed." I didn't realize how heavy my words were when I said them. I could see visible hurt on my Mother's face now.
"Don't you think you're over reacting? It's just fam

Okay, where do I start?
Well, first off, I can tell, your so nice, always!!!! I can always just come to you with my problems, and you can always bring yours to me! And you do!
You will always and forever be at the top of my friends list!
Everything you do, you out your heart into. Even the sketches. I am always checking my deviantwatch, hoping for a request/art trade journal!! XD
Sometimes, it makes me sad to know I shall never meet you in the outside world. But, aslong as you never leave DA, we will always be friends, I can tell!!
You always try and make friends! You would never pass up the opportunity for another person on your friends list! And it's already so vast! And I am so happy to be on that list!

yuki-chan-17 We don't talk a whole lot, but I just wanted to let you know that you're such a kind young lady, and I see a real humble side in you. Thank you for being such a lovely person.
Kurosaki224 Just wanted to say that you are such a nice, good-humored person, and I always enjoy my conversations with you - even when they get quite random. Keep being awesome!
TheIce-Sorceress is an amazing girl and an amazing friend. She doesn't realize how awesome she is sometimes and I think it's a crying shame. I love her so much and I wouldn't trade her for the world. I hope one day she'll finally understand how amazing she is. She's helped me through some hard times and I've done so for her too and I feel like she's one of the deviants on here who knows me, I mean really knows me. She's one of the people I think of when I think of giving up, because I know I have to keep going if there's even one person left who cares about me. And I
DeviantART Compliments #97LJ-Phillips is an amazing artist whose digital comics have a photo-realistic quality to them, even her non-humans! She's very friendly and loves sharing information about her characters, whom she has fleshed out enough to make believable.

Where I'm FromI am from the forgotten times.Where I'm From3 months ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
From nights only reminisced on holidays.
I am from the constantly moving.
From memories painted only on windows.
I am from the always leaving.
From the hour-long goodbyes.
I am from the yes ma’am, no ma’am.
From the manners seemingly forgotten by others.
I am from the promises of “this is the last time”.
From the houses that were supposed to build character
but only reshaped nightmares.
I’m from stormy nights spent alone.
From dreams broken by thunderclouds.
I am from the old dirt road
From the bitter kiss of cold nights
From the warm embrace of the summer days.
I’m from the thoughts of ending it all.
From the paths that made me change the direction of my life forever.
I’m from endless depression, wishing it all to be well someday.
From the constant disapproval from strangers.
From a place where a simple phrase like “It only takes time” is enough to ease even the toughest emotional breaks.
We are the real monstersWith all things fleeting one is forced to see,We are the real monsters1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
not everything is meant to forever be.
But our minds attach, we build bridges.
But all things must burn, we move by inches.
Because miles are too hard to obtain alone,
and sometimes we have to do things on our own.
But doubt is easy to overcome
Courage and belief are two beats of the same drum.
So when you look in the mirror and you can't see,
you realize you were lost in the hypnotizing beat.
Things fade, people vanish, lives end.
Our only true and eventual goal is to amend,
That which was broken, to rebuild.
So that your life will be fulfilled.
But human nature is hard to overcome.
Jealousy and Love are the same two beats of the drum.
That mirror one day must break, releasing your monsters for all to see.
And you realize that all you had to do was set them free.
For they wanted to leave as much as you wanted them gone,
But with them gone, you really see yourself and so on.
And while your monsters are gone, you notice what you've become.

Me and you, we were supposed to get through.
But with wasted worry, and shadowed doubt,
What we had suffered an endless drought.
The spirits have disagreed. my heart no longer beats.
They're enraged. I see no light.
They wish to take me. I'm dying.
I can see eternity in their eyes. You're not there.
This place is all but forsaken. It is heavenly.
They wish to torture me. My white wings have grown.
The fire awaits me. My halo shines bright.
The pain is too much. I am happy beyond belief.
Was any of it worth it? It was all worth it to be here.
I lost everything. I gained everything.
I should have done something differently. I did everything right.
I wish I were dead. I wish I were dead.

Your drawings are always beautiful and they each have something special in them thats stands out from the rest. I hope you continue to do what you're doing and remember, if your feeling sad or hurt inside you can always talk. <3

on days like these, my greatest weakness

Her Name Was AliceI knew I'd never forget those days as they unfolded while the sun slowly fell over the horizon. We sat together in every class, laughing at whatever jokes were told, no matter how distasteful they were. We didn't really have anyone but each other. I'd tell her of my worries of becoming someone man enough to replace my late father, and she'd tell me about her hardships. The trouble she had covering her bruises, or her constant fear of displeasing her mother.Her Name Was Alice6 months ago in Short Stories More Like This
In the evening, we'd watch the sun fall over the river. Though as soon as those streetlights came on, we had to rush home to avoid the wrath of our parents. I often would stay up wondering how she was. I'd wonder about all the pain--emotionally and physically--she would constantly be in. I often found myself craving the sunlight, signalling the start of my daily cycle with her.
It wasn't until I turned fifteen that I realized I had fallen for her. She was perfect in beauty and in grace. A beauty that the rest of the worl
Raining Blood, Chapter 25: ConfrontationI didn't waste any time, I barged right into the small settlement. People in ash-colored clothing were crowding the streets. It looked as if their clothes would turn to dust at the slightest touch. It was obvious that the citizens here were struggling with poverty. Maybe even famine. I wondered if that was because of the new leadership, but apart of me felt that it had always been this way. I didn't remember it being this bad, I was only here a few days ago. I began shoving my way through, standing out in this dull colored crowd, and ignoring the insults given to me for pushing and shoving strangers. I was trying to find the center of the town, a place where maybe I could navigate better.Raining Blood, Chapter 25: Confrontation2 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

It was incredibly hard to choose who to have in the first three days, but I am very happy with my decision. I was unable to have every deviant suggested on the last day, so I choose those who were suggested the most. I hope you guys enjoy the trip and if you have any questions/have a problem with my decision/wondering why you weren't chosen/want to chat send me a message, I'm always willing to help you out!

RB Chapter 20: The One that Time has ForgottenIt didn't take long for us to reach Crescentia. When we arrived, the lights flickered. I was the reason behind this. Being gone for so long, Crescentia's power was coming from the temple, instead of me. So naturally, when I walked in, the power would surge in a manner as such as it was switching it's primary power source. Sheath was silent, observing Kisara and Titanium. The two appeared to be very close. If they were doomed to reincarnation, maybe they were. They moved as one. Walking in perfect sync. It was strange, but sweet at the same time. As we walked further into my town, I could feel a surge of energy as everything began to slow down and eventually stop. The leaves falling from the trees were frozen in the air. The people walking, fixated mid-walk. Then there was a scream. We all made a dash for the general area. There were eighteen of us, finding the person shouldn't have been too difficult.
