.at night, something mad.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
climbs into bed with me and
i go to war with myself -
words i do not want sit on the tip
of my tongue, so i bite the whole
thing off - crimson droplets fall
from the sky, and i start bleeding
rain - dead babies, their heartbeats
slipping through the cracks in my
floorboards - kettles abandoning
pots and then finding that neither
can function properly - white sheets,
pillowcases, walls and white faces -
a rabid cat clawing at the inside of
my temple, let me out - krill in the
bellies of whales, their hearts like
empty lockets - suffocating in the
silver lining - secrets giggling like
children in my mind, a game of hide
and seek i don't think i want to win -
a lamb frolicks around the body of a
lion and i reap something i never
even sowed in the first place
(you idiot, you idiot, what have you done)
.how am i feeling? well today.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
i'm a phoenix, doc, here get me
an ash tray i'll show you
and please i just wanna sleep
like lena does, i got a brain
like a ten ton weight
(and i'm still holding what's dead because no one else can carry it, and i can't get into bed until i find somewhere to bury it)

Chrome's Little BirdI apologize for any confusion I have made, especially for the people who just got into the little comic I made of Chrome's Little Bird. I didn't think it was going to grab attention because this was more of a side thing, where it didn't have an established plot or a full-fledged comic series. This is more of a sub-plot or a mini comic? I guess I wanted to get to know the characters I have made as well and for the people who have been watching me, to have fun with these humanizations and see them interacting with each other since quite a few were curious. :> I thank you for the on-going support and so I have uploaded here all of the comics I have done so far in order.Chrome's Little Bird1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I made a separate folder for this mini comic, so you guys can look in there too!

Again, NO PERMISSION needed for fanart, cosplay, roleplay, fanfiction Have fun!

Veiled Truth Literature Contest WINNERS!Hello, everybody! I'm so, so sorry for the delay in getting these results posted. A lot has been going on with me lately, but that's not the point.

I know that many of you are familiar with this contest, but for those of you who aren't, the information and rules can be found here. The objective of this contest was to write a piece of literature from a child's point of view, describing something terrifying. There were many awesome entries, and I had a hard time picking out the winners. Quick shout-out to DemonicSymbolsSuitMe for helping me with judging these!

WingsHumans have used wings and feathers as personal ornamentation for the entirety of our history. In fact, there's evidence that our evolutionary cousins did so as well. It's suggested that this kind of ornamentation may even extend to a common ancestor of both humans and Neanderthals.Wings11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
What has led to our fixation with feathered ornaments is something we'll never know for sure. Do they represent a freedom we terrestrial beings long for when we see our avian friends? Does it come from spiritual or religious reverence? Or is it just because they are so pretty?
Whatever drives it today will differ between individuals, but there is no shortage of it in the artistic community. Here are some of the wonderful wing-containing crafts found in the Artisan Craft galleries.

SurrealismSurrealism1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
orld War I (1914-1918) was a human catastrophe
that devastated Western civilization and mocked the hope inherent in “modernism”. The sheer volume of the war’s slaughter was beyond belief. The horror of it all destroyed the trust in science, medicine and technology as the golden gateway to a harmonious and peaceful future for humanity. All that was thought to be good had been twisted to the evil purpose of a global war. A global sense of hopefulness was replaced with a global sense of fear and loathing.

WOW. I am completely blown away by the wonderful gifts and amazing artwork you sent for my birthday! I wasn't expecting it at all, and when I opened the envelope and saw all the beautiful art, I was humbled and moved beyond words. In moments like this, I ask myself what I ever did to deserve such kindness from so many. Please know that I did not take one single gift for granted… I am so grateful for each of you and your kindness to me!!
Much ranger lovbe!

How to source artI'd like to share something here that has been bothering me A LOT lately. The ones that follow me on FB probably know about that. My Elsa drawing got a crazy unexpected popularity and since the first moment I posted it here (and people shared in Tumblr), it's been reproduced over 15 times by people that didn't mention me or at least say "I used an image from internet but I don't know the artist". Nope. They simply took someone else's work, copied/traced it and even dared to say that they're "proud of their work".How to source art1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sometimes accidents happen. After all, maaaany years ago I copied another artist's work and didn't mentioned it, but I was 17 years old and hardly ever knew what "art" was X_D I posted it here in deviantART and got a bunch of well deserved comments saying "this is so wrong", "you copied from this artist!", "you are horrible!". Since that moment, I put all my efforts to:
1- Contact the artist and ask for permission to reproduce their artwork.
2- Give credits (it's easy an
