08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

i really really really want to see more ppl experimenting with their art, esp in the wings of fire fandom (i love u all but please. Please. stop copying realtense) so this is what i'm going to do to encourage that. what is the challenge? draw something out of your comfort zone! if you usually draw w lines, try lineless. if you usually use muted colors, try bright ones. if you usually draw standing poses, do an action pose. throw some cubism in there. go buckwild. genuinely just stretch yourself beyond your comfort zone and what is... well, 'fandom popular'; the ability to diversify your style is a strength, not a hindrance. what are the re

It is indeed that time again...
the days are becoming shorter, nights are getting colder and my love for the winter is slowly creeping it's way up my spine... and into my mind.

Why this is?... i cannot give any logical explanation for, it's just something that has stuck in my mind since i was a wee-one...

(random outburst of memories)

You cant believe what you dont see...
each grain of sand beneath the sea...
you have no faith in a dream...
fade into the landscape unseen...

breathe in breathe deep
a lifetime is too long too sleep
waiting for winter's first snow
to cover your tracks so no-one will know
that you ever lived or ever lied
you wouldn't give
and never tried...

In a field of weeds killing time
a winding river rushes by...
all the while you seem to be going blind
a cold numb grey in your eye...


counting the days...
counting the days......

mood: drained and exhausted
           living on dreams of nights gone bye...

listening to: Tom Waits, Lamb of God

winter's the best.
but then going into summer is sometimes nice.
it's warm.......and comfortable.......and then becomes distinctly uncomfortable..........which is why winter is the best.
