Southern Summer vs. Northern Winter
The sun beats down on
Southern pavement, oppressive,
Sapping life from bones.
Bundled tight against
Frigid winds to gaze upon
Northern lights above.

What Love Can Be
You know that love is necessary, life sustaining,
But coming from you even that is an understatement.
Selfishly, you take without reciprocating.
Even those that you protect detect no sentiment.
You always crave more because you remain
Unacquainted with the real thing.
You underestimate what love can do.
Love can be what mends you when you're worn,
Stands you back up when things fall through,
And reinforces you against the coming storm.
Joined in love, you could be much stronger than this.
Together we are much stronger than your tricks.
This reasoning is lost on you.
To you love is but a means to sate your desires,
To feed the hunger at your core.
You have forsaken the very thing you claim to need.
Please allow me to demonstrate
What love can truly be.

A Need To Make Amends
There is nothing that I need
Besides time to study, things to read.
I have a family that support one another
And the best mentor one could ask for.
Much more than many others can say.
Perhaps I have let schoolyard pals fall by the wayside,
But those elementary days have long gone by.
I have more important tasks to attend.
My well-being does not cusp on being your friend.
Can we postpone this for another day?
My studies lead me somewhere new,
Albeit still farther away from you.
New faces shape my learning and career
And I couldn't imagine being anywhere but here.
As shared hardships enforce a we
And shared accomplishments teach me
What friendship can truly be
I wonder if there are mistakes behind me.
Can you forgive me?

One Year Later
Hello, Father.
It has been a year
Since we last talked,
Since I last presented you the twenty-first century.
A lot of things have changed, Father.
Me, Mother, my sister, your brothers and sisters...your grandchildren...
The country...
The world...
You see, Father...
I've grown quite much now.
Now I see what you saw.
Now I understand everything you have said.
Now I talk more than I used to.
I know it's a little late.
But it's better than never.
I'm sorry, Father.
I still haven't fully become the person you wished for.
I'm still not religious.
I still have no desire to be in the field you wanted.
I'm still as stubborn,
Or worse
I could imagine how you feel.
Therefore, I'm sorry.
But I will try.
Thank you, Father.
Because of you, my world becomes larger.
I think differently,
and you might not recognize this way of thinking anymore.
Despite losing you, I have to say my life improves.
All thanks to you.
I miss you, Father.
I miss watching movies in theatres with you.
I miss going to the CD

:iconanimalartistsofda: :iconfurcadia-fans:
I've had this plan for 2019's New Year's resolution pretty much all year to get a handful of sketchbooks and use each to practice drawing something I'm not especially good at. I've purchased four sketchbooks of appropriate dimensions to fit in the lockers at work and chosen my topics.

There is one caveat: I don't have very many characters of my own who fit most of these topics, at least not so much as to populate an entire sketchbook. (Well, okay, I could probably populate the human one with characters from WIP manuscripts/novels, but where's the fun in that?)

That's where you come in! Below are specifications for what type of characters I'll be taking and the general time of year I expect to do each of these sketchbook studies. Please keep in mind that you are not promised that your character will be included; I will pick ones I feel inspired to draw.

The product of these requests will most likely be simple sketches, though there may be a few here and there that receive color and/or inking. Please reply to the appropriate comment with your character's name and a reference; this is to help me keep things organized and find the right references while working on the right sketchbook, as well as keep tabs on who I need to nudge when things are uploaded. I won't necessarily upload every sketch I do and if I do it may be as a sketch dump, but I will try to upload any that are for someone else separately.

Expected Timeframe: July through September

Comment HERE with character information.

Dragon Bullet - Black Sketchbook #4: Dragons and other reptiles

  Question Mark Confused or uncertain whether your character fits in any of these categories? Comment HERE with questions.

   Camera Know of some nice, free stock photos I can use for anatomy references? Feel free to drop those HERE.

Feel free to share this journal with your friends! The more options I have for characters to draw, the better.

Glittering Gem Bullet (Dark Purple) - F2U by Drache-LehreFurcadia Characters:
Kono | Applejack

I am a jack of all trades and master of none... which means I'm horrifically unconfident, but not entirely incompetent. Expect near about every type of visual art, writing, and occasionally crafts.

I have a song and a tea for every mood and ailment; expect old Hedley songs and lots of chai. Former spiritualist trying to figure out where the road leads - back to those values or away from them? - after some mind-shattering experiences. Meditating and hoping it sorts itself out.

My current big art project is a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic role play dream for Furcadia. Lots of pony pixels incoming.

Please feel free to send me a note. I'd be glad to meet new people. I promise I don't bite... hard.

That moment when you jump ahead to a scene that would happen much later in the story and just start writing that, and suddenly it makes a lot more sense how these plot threads come together. In this case, why one set of events is important for working through the baggage leftover from a previous set of events.

I'm kind of glad I'm still partially a pantser. There's a certain satisfaction in watching things fall into place in my own work.

I'm not crying, you're crying. Shut up.
I may have watched this kitty video three times and then went after the full song.

I also want to go grab the 'Dawn of the Clans' arch and read that because the description on a video I came across last night made the struggle between Gray Wing and Clear Sky sound... relatable. I've got other things I need to read before I go buying anything new, but the itch is definitely there. I'm hella behind on Warriors in general and all my old books are in the garage and possibly water damaged because of it, so I'm thinking of just loading up on ebook versions of everything at some point.
In the interest of participating in the #ShowYourHeart shenanigans, here's the last 'love' related thing I posted.
I haven't done any gel pen stuff in a while. Maybe some other time, as I've other priorities at the moment.
A friend made me a thing which everyone should definitely look at and check her out.

Happy Birthday Sweetie

Thanks. How've you been?
FairieShadows Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2018
It's been a bloody long month. The anniversary of my husband leaving me, and the birth of his new baby, 7 weeks early (Not jelous, scared for the baby. I really like his mom, and 2 of my 3 kids didn't want to loose another sibling) And my ten year old has had lice 3 times. This last time, she let me cut her waist length hair to her shoulders. But she's not really happy about it. She DID appreciate that it took 3 hours less to go through though. 

It's also getting colder, so my knees are puddles of pain, and I've had a migraine from hell for the past few days. but my kids had a PA day, and I had a kid to treat for lice .... having said that, when I'm sick, I get very strange dreams. Last night I drempt I saved Malfoy from a Zombie using his belt as a whip, so there is that ... 

On top of it all though, it was the anniversary of Armoon's death. And although I'm in a happy committed relationship now, I still miss him every day. 

How have you been?
cryptated Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2018  Hobbyist General Artist
Armoon? That name isn't familiar to me, but I'm wondering if that's another name Zypherr went by?

I haven't been great. I lost a 10 year friendship back in April, after around a month of of telling myself I was imagining things. Things were getting weirdly tense with her any time I expressed my thoughts on something, even if it's something mundane like not getting why sports fandom is so widespread compared to anything else or something I am technically right about like someone (not the friend in question) getting my character's markings wrong. I was feeling like everything I said was 'wrong' to her in one way or another, like I wasn't allowed to have thoughts/opinions/feelings about anything, like she didn't like me at all anymore but kept talking to me out of nostalgia. It being 10 years into knowing each other, though... I told myself I was being silly. Imagining it. That she didn't mean whatever she was saying that way. Towards the end of last year one of the few years ago ex-friends showed up and gave me the impression they were attached to nostalgia for isolated parts of the me they remembered, but didn't like me as I actually am. They *said* the nostalgia part, and implied the latter part with how they treated me thereafter. They then went completely MIA... again. So in my mind, there's no reason this should be the case with 10 year friend who would have been bored of me long ago if she couldn't stand the real me, right? I'm just feeling scared and insecure because the other ex-friend has spent the past few years planting those painful seeds in one way or another. I'm projecting those fears onto 10 year friend. Nothing's wrong and I might create a problem that wouldn't otherwise exist by addressing an imagined slight, so I have to just cry in the corner, keep my mouth shut, and wait for my own brokenness to pass. It's a problem that only exists inside of me, right?

Unfortunately, not right. The night finally comes where the conversation somehow turns into her writing this huge wall post about how much she can't stand me. I don't get to read it all before she deletes the entire Discord server that we shared with a mutual friend (did she instantly regret it? was she covering her ass so the mutual wouldn't see? did she just want to make sure I wouldn't say anything back? who knows), but I read roughly the first half of it and that contained her saying that I 'always have to be right', that she hasn't been able to stand me for a while, and that I'll probably accuse her of projecting... well, sweet irony that I've actually been telling myself my instincts are wrong and that I am projecting. Needless to say, at that point I knew I wasn't crazy and that the undercurrent of hurt I felt in relation to this person wasn't all in my head.

Shortly thereafter, I left another of my peer groups. I got frustrated with someone and told them 'no, not cool' because they made criminal accusations, flippantly and without evidence... group leader, who was a friend of mine, chided me for it and didn't seem to get why I wasn't going to stand for those types of accusations, so after a day of waiting while she neglected to even privately discuss the matter with me, and her cracking down on me again when the dude started saying blatantly harassing, things to me directly (threatening to block me for questioning him, saying 'yet, I do' when I pretty much told him he couldn't realistically expect to talk shit and go unchallenged, and other trademark arrogant wacko stuff), I finally said 'I've have enough of this. Bye.' and left.

I did message her a few days later to give her an explanation for why I left like that, at which point she seemed to understand where I was coming from and supposedly we were still friends, kinda? I've heard from her once since then, but I tried to ask her a follow-up question about something she said to me and she just... didn't answer. Messaged her once more a few days thereafter and she didn't reply to that either, so I'm feeling like things are awkward, broken... maybe we aren't really friends, just not wanting to say we're 'not friends' because we don't intend to be enemies. Life is hard and I can't seem to keep anyone. I feel like garbage.

I normally work produce, but in July the bakery switched to a new computer system and a guy ragequit the first day it was in place because he didn't like it. I ended up working bakery for a while and taking a lot of overtime because there's just so much that needs done there day to day, and usually only two people there any given day. Pretty much right after I started working in bakery, one of my step-sisters committed suicide. I never met her, but it's still kind of sad in that now I never will and my stepmother lost a child. My mother freaked out and threatened to follow/stalk me because I asked her to let me park on the outside of the driveway so I could leave on a certain day and apparently even with me being 24 at the time she has to have full knowledge and control of where I go. When she found out it was for the viewing and funeral, she went to bug my stepmother so she could go, too... and then she tried to invite her boyfriend and my grandma without even asking my stepmother. (Spoiler Alert: Literally everyone from the church they grew up in showed up, including people who were practically strangers, so my stepmother was overwhelmed and probably would've preferred smaller, tighter knit services.) Mom tried to be all 'i told you so' and 'you're a *insert insult*' and 'you're immature' about it supposedly being her right to know about everything / my feeling it wasn't her business until/unless those nearest to the deceased chose to tell her, but after the fact my stepmother flat out told me she never even thought about telling my mom because my mom didn't even know the step-sister. My mom tried to insist my stepmom would/did want her there.

With everything that happened in July and how busy I was, I kind of fell off the creative and self-care horses. I'm trying to get back on them... I did Inktober, currently doing NaNoWriMo. I'm still not exercising like I should and my sleep's been screwy. It's a work in progress.
