In The Birdcage - A Poem
I'm locked within the birdcage.
The room damp, dark and bland
is empty but for my harsh cell.
On the lone perch I stand.
My taloned feet grip the bar, 
the cold, unpleasant thing,
for I cannot move from my spot, 
can't even stretch a wing.
I was once a free bird, yes,
who flew the open skies.
But now I have this old birdcage, 
that which I so despise.
I'm visited on most nights,
to entertain and chatter,
but remain tethered to my perch.
My hope to fly is shattered.
You'd think I'd try escaping
from the old birdcage door.
There really is no point in it,
I don't try anymore. 
I've been conditioned to it,
they've gotten in my head,
but if they wrong me in some way
I'm in the wrong instead.
Being selfless is one thing,
having no self - another.
I fall into the latter sect,
no confidence to cover.
This bird is truly grounded.
No longer do I attack.
Perhaps one day I'll yet fly free,
once I learn to fight back.

The Crux of the Matter - Chapter One
The sky was as clear as one could have expected from an average winter night in London. England was well known for its frequent rainfall but, thankfully, this particular night was devoid of it in favour of a dry yet icy-cold breeze. It was late enough that most of the noise of the day had died down in favour of relative quiet, though complete silence in a city like London was a definite impossibility. The noise on the outer reaches of the city was at its most minimal, with the distant droning of passing traffic on the bigger, busier roads and the nearer chatter of occasional passers-by being the only noise that could be heard around the homely toyshop at the end of the road. The welcoming building had two floors. The lower floor was taken up by the shop itself. The sign above the doorway, the big windows opening up unto the hand-made and hand-sewn toys lined up neatly on the shelves inside, the way a tiny bell chimed whenever the door was opened up; all of it added up and made the plac

Forget the war not.
He grumbled grouchily, shuffling across the cave floor with an old, shaggy hide wrapped around his body. It was another night, just the same as the last few thousand years. His gnarled hands dipped into the crystal clear pool of water before he splashed it upon his face. After a few moments, an old weather face looked back at him. Scarred with jet black eyes and a crooked nose that had been broken too many times. The fur remained wrapped as he made his way from the deep caverns, stepping over rising pillars of stalagmites and bones littered across. At the mouth of the cave, a far younger vampire was waiting for him.
The elder was the last of his generation, and appearance wise he stuck out from the current vampires. Some would say that he appeared as a monster, with his dead skin and dragon like wings. But in truth, he took the final form of a vampire if they made it to his age and beyond. Sangue had yet to understand this, but still respected his aging mentor. The elder motioned

Journal
I love you no matter your sexuality/gender.
So, I won't name names, but I recently had a friend come out to me as being transexual, and they were worried I wouldn't want to be their friend anymore. While I tend to keep political statements off my social media, this is very important to me to say.
My ONLY policy in life is to not hurt/endanger or bully other people. That's it. I don't care if you're sexually attracted to trees and microwaves. I don't care if your gender identifies as an extension cord. You're not hurting anyone, so why should I care? You're all free to live your life how you want, and even if I may find the more extreme stuff odd, I would never judge you for it or think less of any of you for who you are. So what I'm saying is, Don't be afraid to tell me if you're gay, bi, pan, male, female, transgendered or anything else. I don't care at all, and honestly just really like making friends no matter.
I only judge you based on how you treat people. Are you a bully? Rude? Controlling? Entitled? The

Critiques


As I've said before in a prior critique of one of your works this character is, by far and away, my personal favourite character of you...


I must confess that this is most likely my favourite of all the characters I've seen you draw. The inspiration behind him was a subject...


My first time writing a critique, and for the first picture of an adoptable I first drew up. ^_^ I love the name you picked out for her...

Activity


Stressed up to my eyeballs, tired as heck, can't sleep past 7am without waking up for a bit first no matter when I went to bed.

God I hate the last week of uni.
Saw my buddy HannahSealy do this - honestly I don't think many more of these journal memes have ever spoke to me more as a person than this one. I tell ya, my lexicon of fictional characters I've had a thing for is long and, in frequent cases, weird. I'll fully admit some of my choices in that regard are odd to the point wherein even I don't know why I like 'em that much. But hey, here we go!

Rules:-
- Re-post the rules on your journal as well.
- Name at least 5 characters you have a crush on. Can be childhood crushes as well!
- Be honest
- Tag some people at the end who you think wanna try this
- Enjoy!

I see your 'at least 5 characters' and I raise you... Twice that. Right here and now, I will go into 10 of my fictional character crushes, past and present! In no particular order... Here they come!

1: Zane from Yu-Gi-Oh GX - Full disclosure, when I was younger I bloody LOVED that show, and adored Zane to the point of viewing him as an 'imaginary friend' that I would pretend to hang out with.

2: Beelzemon from Digimon Tamers. Sure he started off horrifically antagonistic but I did enjoy his redemption and the progression of his story.

3: Bai Lai and Carden from Power Rangers Jungle Fury - Yeah, when I was younger I had a bizarre fascination with and fondness for certain Power Rangers villains and monsters. Exclusively them, never the Rangers themselves. Bai Lai and Carden (especially the latter) were among my favourites... And not the least questionable (you'll see that one later). 

4: Prince Soma from Black Butler - truth be told there are a number of characters from the show that could apply, but I didn't want them to dominate the list so I'll give the others honourable mentions here: Claude, Undertaker, Agni, Finny, Sebastian (who saw that one coming?), Hannah 

5: Junko from Storm Hawks - He's just such a big loveable lump of a guy! He's adorable. This is another spot wherein I'm gonna throw in some honourable mentions, too, lest they take up a good chunk of the list otherwise: Repton, Dark Ace

6: Orm aka Ocean Master from Aquaman - Not really much to add here. I have a fondness for ocean-based things and an odd draw towards villain characters much of the time, so this guy really fits the bill for me!

7: Mr Finch aka Brother Lassar from Doctor Who (School Reunion) - Leader of the Krillitanes, this guy was a fantastic villain. I always loved how smooth and cunningly he conducted himself, always seeming in control until the episode's end. A shame he only appeared in that one episode, really. 

8: Ichthys from the Voltage Inc otome 'Star-Crossed Myth' (now found in Love 365: Find Your Story) - Honourable mentions go to... Pretty much every single guy in that game because hooooooly heck do I love them. I mainly mentioned Ichthys here since he represents Pisces in the game and I'm a Pisces girl myself, and his playful nature was damn adorable. Special mentions to Teorus, Scorpio, Leon, Dui, Huedhaut and Karno.

9: Negan from The Walking Dead (both tv and comic versions) - This girl likes bad guys a lot, OK? And, come on, in terms of the tv incarnation specifically, he looks damn good when Jeffrey Dean Morgan is portraying him. 

10: Wrench from Power Rangers Dino Charge - You know what I said about Bai Lai and Carden not being my weirdest Power Rangers crushes? Yeah, this guy right here takes the cake. Hell this guy takes the whole damn bakery. Why? Even though I, full disclosure, STILL bloody love him, I would never be able to answer the question of why that is. He's a... Robot, I think? Villain again. I can't even make the point that his voice is appealing because, I kid you not, he sounds like a clinically depressed Barney the Dinosaur. Why do I find this character attractive? Literally no clue why. But I did, and still do. There may or may not be the beginnings of a one-shot sitting in my iPad notes shipping him with a character of mine, I'm that serious. Feel free to laugh.

Many thanks for stopping by to witness the death of my dignity, I appreciate it. I'm gonna tag SaviorKing for this since I reckon they'd like to do it. You guys can do it if you want! It's been interesting to dive into. I have more fictional character crushes but these were the first 10 to come to mind - hell I could do a separate list of my weird Power Rangers crushes alone.
Watching Aquaman again. Hooooly heck I love this movie so much!
So apparently National Dolphin Day is a thing?

Have a good one, everyone!
I'm locked within the birdcage.
The room damp, dark and bland

On the lone perch I stand.

can't even stretch a wing.

I was once a free bird, yes,
who flew the open skies.
But now I have this old birdcage, 
that which I so despise.
I'm visited on most nights,
to entertain and chatter,
but remain tethered to my perch.
My hope to fly is shattered.

You'd think I'd try escaping
from the old birdcage door.
There really is no point in it,
I don't try anymore. 
I've been conditioned to it,
they've gotten in my head,
but if they wrong me in some way
I'm in the wrong instead.

Being selfless is one thing,
having no self - another.
I fall into the latter sect,
no confidence to cover.
This bird is truly grounded.
No longer do I attack.
Perhaps one day I'll yet fly free,
once I learn to fight back.
In The Birdcage - A Poem
I can't remember the last time I tried my hand at poetry. Apologies if it's not well-written. I honestly haven't felt compelled to try it for a very long time but for some reason when I hit a bit of a low point I really felt as though it would be the best way to artfully yet constructively get my frustrations out. Personally, I'm satisfied with not only how it's come out but satisfied I committed to venting in such a fashion at all.

I've come to the realisation lately that I am far, far too soft. A friend of mine once called me 'selfless to a fault', which pretty much sums it up; I let myself succumb far too easily to manipulation under my misguided belief that doing everything to please other people regardless of whether or not I emotionally or mentally suffer for it is in any way a good thing. I'm submissive to the point of feeling in the wrong if someone gets upset with me for something that's not my fault, complying with things that I don't want or are of some form of detriment to myself under the line of thinking "I want them to be happy, that matters more" and simply letting emotional/mental abuse slide whenever it should raise its ugly head.

To portray that sense of confinement, the binds of manipulation and my own lacking sense of self, I used the analagy of a bird (or, in my case, a harpy) trapped in a small birdcage, let out to entertain only at the discression of whomever is keeping it, but never allowed to fly free from its perch and slowly losing the will to even attempt such a thing.

I'm working to improve myself in that regard. I'm pleased with what little progress I have made, but there's still a while to go. I just hit a bit of a low point and felt it necessary to get that all off my chest so that I can truly move on from it. Thank you for reading.
