As far as my memory serves, there is no process so despicable, so hostile, and so degenerative, as that which we a society as a whole - have acknowledged with the title of Growing Up. There is a particular aura to which all small children share at some point in time. It is a presence of innocence which many can recall. Days which are so long past to us, it is a blessing which all covet only post-expiration. These dwindling hours of our childhood nature, washed over by the bleak and uncanny whirlwind of time, cry out to be remembered. Golden and prosperous weeks of unfinished summers, counting down their unsustainab
The death has been a gracious one,
With rotting corpses in the sun.
The voices cry and voices scream,
Ebbing into a broken dream.
We dance like pawns in games of chess,
With brutal kings we must impress.
To war we march with heads held high,
Becoming fodder as we die.
We stab and maim without pity,
Alas we fall in this city.
Death sweeps closer to me, my love,
But it is you Im thinking of.
The men are scattered, weak, and dead,
For his highness, they all have bled.
Our city is a wasteland now,
Unto my King, I disavow.
He hunts me with unholy zeal,
Craving my flesh for his late meal.
While I struggle, and whi
So, I must admit to everybody right now, I am really not sure whether or not I will really be posting much on DeviantART by way of stories. There are several reasons for this:
1. Pay-to-win. It seems to me that on DeviantART, if you have a subscription and a bunch of fancy, flashy doodads on your page, people will flock to your stuff and you'll get loads of hits and exposure.
2. Whore-to-win. Similar to number 1, but this point stems off of how hard it is to actually have a voice on D.A. Much of the time, the only reason why I was able to even rake in views for any of my crappy, older writings is because I simply spammed the crap out of the
'Ey everybody. As some people may or may not know, I recently set up the Shadow-Syndicate group to do some collaborate work with three good friends of mine, CloudyB, TwistedTranquility, and ShadeMF. TwistedTranquility and myself are horror writers, while CloudyB and SunFiltered are both visual artists. The plan is that our collaborative work follows this kind of suit:
Round 1: The two artists draw, and then TT and I both write individual stories that encapsulate both of the drawing concepts as we both see fit.
Round 2: TT and I write separate stories, and CB and SF both draw individual pictures that capture something from both of the storie
Ahoy! To whom it may concern, I'm just dropping a quick note to inform you I've set up a make-shift base of operations over on Ye Ol' Tumblr:
There are 3 stories that have not been posted here on my D.A. account (Not sure if I will or not, as I do enjoy comments and critiques), but I hope you enjoy the new site. I look forward to pumping out more stuff as I feel my muse trying to return to me.
Catch you all later.
I know this is random, but I finally got a 1 year membership on DA and I was able to see who my oldest friend was on the site. It was you! So, I decided I would come back and and say thanks for being my friend for so long
