On two Swiss legendsOn two Swiss legends
The devil’s bridge
Men, women! Children!
Come, come and carefully listen
to this story unfolding
since which many years have gone
When Switzerland was still apart
discontent and lamentations echoed
from mountain and valley
of the Uri people
« Cruel Gotthard blocks our way
the road to splendid Italy »
It was the great vine they wanted
and pay the Holy Father a visit
Alas, the Schöllenen canyon
defied every attempt of bridge-building
Thus, in this hour of need
it was soon decided
to call upon the devil’s force
and carry the heavy risks
Such happened indeed
and the devil agreed
to build the bridge in one night’s time
a bridge strong and fine
As said was done, and before wond’ring eyes
a bridge stood across the river Reuss
But when there was joy, it quickly faded
For the devil awaited his payment
The first one to cross the bridge
his soul must fall into the devil’s grip
But the Uri people, in their wit
let loose a untamed

Slit your wrist
Cried yourself to sleep
Wished yourself gone
Chased a dream (and lost it)
Ended up in a nightmare…
Turned away from your “friends”
Tortured yourself over an error
If you are a victim…
Remember to stay strong.
Because you’re only a survivor

And violets are blue
But you have to understand
Who said they had to,
Its about imagination
Emotion and orignality
Not the reiteration
Of dead men's practicality
They are your sentence
To a world that has to listen
As you create the difference
Whether it be
With angst poem against love
Or how you set your heart free
To fly like a dove,
For these words
Whether or not they be true
Their beauty and ideals
Will be used to define you,
Hope ,in fact, has feathers
And like a caged bird it sings
But these words will only be tethers
That strip you of your wings,
Those are their words
Meant for their time
And meant for their herds,
But this your time
Meant for your words
And whether they be meaningful, stupid
Or completely absurd
I'm sure they'll be amazing.
Chinese Zodiac - The TigerMore Like This
With fang and claw
I take head-on
the challenges that arise
on life’s many paths
with the flames of courage and passion
that in my heart are burning
I head on with my will
until my task I fullfill
my enemies better beware
of my mighty, honest roar
for I won’t allow anyone to hurt
those I count family and friend
and if you choose to stand in my way
prepare to feel my wrath and dismay
it may take some time to know me
but I will prove myself worthy
though my claws and fangs are feared
I will always be human’s friend
and from that path I’ll never stray
no matter how hard you try

protection is my quest, my mission
which I pursue with zeal and passion
and even when comes the time of parting
you’ll never forget me, that’s a sure thing

I am sure that you have all experienced this feeling:
A masterpiece eclipsed by the baying of a brat!
A raucous rhyme, so emotionally raw;
Shadowed by a child's melancholia...
Alone in the darkness, you lick your lips and growl.
Your anger, so evidently understandable; yet you forget your own abilities!
In despair, my dearest sibling, you have forgotten — yourself
Why fear an obstacle so easily overcome?
Why shred your works with such heavy tears?
Have you forgotten that we are the original craftsman?
Our tongues birthed as our chisels and axe!
We need only take these simple themes
And corrupt them with all our twisted fears...
This hatred inside of you, this bubble of frustration and anxiety —
Let it swell like a pus-filled abscess of anger!
And with your words unleash this vicarious plague!
Take the unblemished works that have scorned you,
And inject them with the very darkness of your soul!

March 21-April 20
An Aries is constantly searching for adventure and fun,
And the mind of an Aries is unlike anyones.
Confident and courageous,
Their enthusiasim contageous,
An Aries is full of energy.
Dynamic, quick-witted, brave and proud,
A pioneer set apart from the crowd.
Both in thought and in action,
And they have to do things to satisfaction.
Arians are leaders, good ones at that,
They'll put others in front of their own life,
Though they are self critical,
It's quite clear that,
An aries is predominat in strife.
But Arians are impatient, selfish, and head-strong,
They can never wait for very long.
They are quick-tempered and fast to react,
It's wise not to get an Aries mad.
Arians are daredevils which can be good and bad,
Good for discoveries, adventure, and fun,
But bad in ways more then one.
Danger, and challenges,
Aries love them,
The kind of things that keep from boredom.
An Aries loves to love,
And will love almost anyone,
They build strong relationships and

Shura stood in front of his temple and gazed into the evening sky. It had been a beautiful day, all the reason to be happy and joyful.
But Shura did not feel happy and joyful.
Only one day had passed since… since THAT happening. His heart still cringed when he remembered little Aiolia’s tears and screams.
„MURDERER! MUDERER! YOU MURDERED MY BROTHER!!!“
The Capricorn lowered his head, his heart feeling heavy. ,I am not a murderer‘, he told himself. ,I did what had needed to be done. I did justice.‘
And still… when he recalled the incident… why did he have doubts? When he had finally faced Aiolos, why had there been no trace of evil in the fellow Gold Saint’s Cosmos? Why did the Sagittarius not fight back, but instead used his body to shield the girl?

Suddenly, he spotted a figure, sitting on top of a cliff near the training grounds, staring into the sunset. The Leo Saint approached, until he recognised it.
Marin. Aquila Silver Saint.
„Hey! Marin!“ The young Leo Saint was glad he had found someone to talk to.
The Eagle Saint turned.
Aiolia gasped and quickly reverted his gaze. She had her mask off. „I… I’m sorry…“, he mumbled. „I didn’t want to…“
At that, Aiolia glanced at Marin in surprise. She gave him a warm smile.
„I like you, Aiolia“, she said, bluntly. „I don’t mind you seeing me without my mask.“
The Aquila Saint chuckled. „You think I can’t keep watch over my heart? “

ATB - An alternative to watermarks: MetadataWe have all seen watermarks on images, here on dA and around the internet. And even though they have become a necessary step in the aid of preventing art theft/misuse of art, they are not always ideal. It's really hard to signature or watermark an icon that is 50x50 pixels and still show it off, for example. And even in larger pieces of art, sometimes they just look ugly or, like the watermark option offered by dA, take up too much of the image.More Like This

Introduction about making handmade booksINTRODUCTION ABOUT BASIC TOOLS TO MAKE HANDMADE BOOKSMore Like This
Today I'd like to share with you some basic tips if you're interested in making handmade books. I've learned how to do that a few terms ago, at the university. As an art restoring adept I've been through the old, traditional ways of making books and added some modern touches to simplify that. I'm going non-professional so far, without expensive equipment, so if you'd like to give books a try you don't have to invest that much
The first and obvious thing that's needed for our book is paper. At that stage you have to decide what kind of book you'd like to make - you need lined or squared paper for notebooks, journals, cookbooks and basically everything that's meant to write in. Sketchbooks and scrapbooks require nice smooth plain paper and photo albums work best with thick and durable paper. Of course those are basics, you can use decorated paper or one suitable for

MEDIEVIL MUSIC!! (update)Hello fans!More Like This
I've found a few wonderful videos about Medievil soundtracks on youtube.
A guy was able to play a few of them on the piano and did it completely himself (because there are no sheets of music). He listened carefully to it and practiced to play them over many years, since he perfected it. I would like to share his work with you, because it's really wonderful!
Further I found an other guy who plays Medievil music too, but in contrast to the first he does it on the electric guitar. He was able to play two tracks, and did a stunning job! Really, he was honoured by one of the original compositors of 1998 who appricated and praised this work very much!

Immediately as the initial hit went across his face, Alfred let go of Arthur. As the more or less numbing pain finally registered in his hand the American took a few steps back, he leaned against the counter, his hands gripping the stone for support. An almost twisted grin appeared on the curve of his lips as he looked downwards at the shattered china set he had absentmindedly knocked on to the ground. "You're right. You're completely right." It was as clear as day now how much the Briton truly loathed his existence. There was no longer a need for formalities or playing coy. There was only one way this conversation was going and there was no stopping it. "Then I'll no longer stop you... nor myself for that matter. Do whoever you please whenever and however you wish, as soon as you-" His head lifted, showing the same genuine smile he used to give England as a child. "-get out."

"He's dead, America."
The American nation turned around abruptly in the British estate, jumping up from the couch as he heard his lover's voice.
England leant there, against the doorway of the study, in a sopping wet coat, dripping onto the carpet. America flinched at the Brit's paler-than-normal skin, and his shaking body.
"Jeez, Iggy, get out of that coat! It's freezing out there!"
England didn't move, didn't even chastise the other for the nickname as America quickly stripped him off the clothes, didn't even pay attention to the chattering of his own teeth. America himself did not want to remember the words the older nation had spoken in a deadpan as he entered.
"England. Hey, England." No answer. Just a blank stare, and a cold shaking that was startlingly familiar to America.
"ENGLAND!" That snapped him out of it. The older nation flinched slightly, before turning a more accustomed glare on the American. "What, you git?" "You kinda spaced out there, babe."

All were celebrating and drinking to their good health… that is, all but one man.

A centaur is galopping
Tell me, archer
What are you searching for?
The answer is nothing but silence
We only can watch as he wanders
Day and night
Pass in a flight
Until, beneath a sky filled with stars
He finds a place to treat his scars
On waters so sweet
He can rest his hooves his feet
The journey's marks, he washes a way
What a nice place to stay
But suddenly, a voice in his ear
A whisper, barely possible to hear
Opening his eyes
The glimmer of fireflies
A fair maiden ascends
From the water and bends
Down to the archer, softly speaking:
Here you will find cure and healing
But in your heart I feel unrest
Tell me, what ist he goal of your quest?
But under the gentle caress of her hand
He couldn't respond
In her eyes, he sees waters deep
And softness almost making him wheep
In his she sees a distant fire
Glowing gently, without any ire
Their hearts now feel
What is destiny's will
And finally his answer reaches her ear:
