when she's done, she'll be torn apart

Feint knew she should have left Terendum by now. The fog was thick, suffocating - threatening. Her mane stood on end, straining for whatever was making her feel like she was being watched. Nothing showed itself, so the frizzle kept low to the ground, slowly moving out of the territory. There was only silence. She could have taken that as a sign, but before she had the chance, the wisps flickered out around her with the hum of a dirge. Another frizzle leapt onto her back, claws thrust into her eyes. Feint's head writhed without a plan or thought to its motions, and buckling under the other ketucari's weight, she dragged herself forward, paws sinking into the soft, spongy soil, then mud. As her paws gave way into the muck, she and the old swamp witch tumbled backwards over each other into the waters of Terendum. Red murky water flowed before Feint, the changeling blinking away the blood in her eyes now that she'd been freed from the other ketucari's grasp. The swamp-dweller's pale form

all what remains is just a feint

The pale pink frizzle huddled into the murk of Terendum, her heart pounding in her chest. Eyes shut to the will o' the wisps around her, she slowly twisted to peer around a gnarled tree, catching her breath in her throat before opening her eyes. There was silence in the wetlands, silence and stillness, the wisps unmoving, the water around them undisturbed. A darkness had set in around the other frizzle in the water. The wisps wouldn't go near her anymore, Feint noticed. It had been several years since the pale 'stranger' had vanished, but surely not enough for her to show such signs of age. Her eyes - dark and sunken like the dead, her skin was visibly wrinkled with time, and her fur was greying and cloudy. Perhaps Feint had just been living the stranger's life too long to remember what life for a mortal would be like in the world of the fae. The stranger - her reflection - had spent far too long around magic, and too long angry. Whatever inherent magic she had left was reflexively

My Bio

Magpie Anarchie - ei/eir/eirs/eirself

Hello, just a heads up that I have a pile of neuro nonsense such as

>Chiari Malformation

>Fibromyalgia

>Migraine condition

>Post-concussion syndrome

>Photosensitivity

>And More! Doctors Hate Them!

Flareups can really be hard on me and make it hard to focus on something for an extended period of time. Please Be Patient With Me I Am A Zombie. I will absolutely try and contact you if we have a deal going on and I don't think I'll be able to make it in time due to Life Stuff.

Sorry! Thanks for understanding!

(Life Update) This was too long for a status

(Life Update) This was too long for a status

So I'm just complaining in a journal like I was when I was 15. dA tries to update and I'm going back over a decade. Real frustrated how I'm having a major flareup of every possible neurological symptom when Eclipse happened to launch. I dunno, this might make me more scarce, but I get bored easily when not working on creative shit, so probably not much. Eclipse is really rough on neuro symptoms, as most people have already said, so like, I'm gonna be at least a little more scarce and it sucks. I was just going to post that in a status, but since I'm here: I know it's weird for someone to just toss all their medical info up publicly but I also know that going "my brain is getting a lot worse" is kind of terrifying, so I wanted to be honest. Here's what I know. It might be my Chiari getting worse. This is just a thing that happens with age (source: idk, my neuro) and I don't have a severe form of Chiari. It could be a mystery because it's usually a mystery with me. Hopefully it isn't
