Dira - part 11
"Po-" It was not unusual for Kai to be silent, but lately he had been practically mute. Eirwenn watched him as he turned a fragment of a mirror between his fingers, idly spinning it to reflect the faint sunshine that glimmered against the ice. "Tell me what is troubling you, love." She said softly, and he frowned. "The mortal, Ysaye's girl." He admitted, flipping the mirror once more. "There is something wrong with her. Something so obvious I should have realized it at once. Yet somehow I can't put my finger on it." "Wrong?" "It has been all the time." Kai muttered. "Ysaye must have sensed it too, but like me he hasn't figured it out." Ei

My characters with music
If my characters had somehow known our music, what songs would define them? I've chosen the songs based on the ones I find myself repeatedly coming back to when writing about the character. 1: Theme song 2: Would dance and/or sing along to (when alone and/or drunk) 3: Would use to describe their partner/relationship XOLORA: Adair Bark: 1: Loverman - Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds 2: Daddy Cool - Boney M 3: #1 Crush - Garbage Fire Nosfer: 1: Uprising - Muse 2: Yoü and I - Lady Gaga 3: Feeling The Itch - Skunk Anansie BEAUTY & THE BEAST: Yueh'La: 1: I Belong to You (+Mon cœur s'ouvre à ta voix ) - Muse 2: Papa - Span

Dira -part 6-
Glaring at anything that moved in such a fashion that every servant in the castle wisely made themselves scarce, Dira made her way back to her rooms. She wanted to scream. To kick or smash or destroy something. To wage wars, or eviscerate annoying critters -she wasn't feeling especially picky- anything to take her mind off the uncomfortable thoughts treathening to force her full attention. Knowing she had no means to start a war with -yet- she did the next best thing, which generations of females had turned to before her; she grabbed a pillow and screamed into it, simultaneously doing an odd hop-and-jerk stomping dance. And like the generati

Life is messing with my plans again
Hey all! I'll return with comics on January 18th. Explanation below, for those of you who would like one. It's been a while since I last updated here, mostly because I haven't had much to share, and it feels silly to be excusing my absence every time I do write something. That said 2012 came with a few changes for me, regarding life, work and most of everything else. Most notably work; I have a part-time job in order to pay rent and such (rather than fretting over this every month due to working as a freelance artist), and this job is in the process of moving. Which is a complete and utter chaos. How chaotic? As I came to work the

We will never forget our children.
This man should never be met with forgiveness. He should never find shelter. He should live the rest of his miserable existance knowing that the entire Norway despise and detest him. We will never forget our young. We will never stop mourning their deaths. We will honor their memory by continuing our work for what they believed in. For freedom of speech. For dialogue and coexistance. For equality, safety and an open and caring society. We will not be silenced. We will not be terrorized. We will not forgive. And we will remember this man as a traitor to our nation and a disgrace to our society. But we will not bow down to brutali

I'm alive and well
I am even returning to the internet! Woopwoop! I've been horribly busy with moving in and getting settled and catching up on everything, but I'm good:) Just a quick note to tell you all that you are the best! <3 Oh, and the comics will resume by Tuesday:D Thank you so much for all your patience and understanding! Lots of love, Elise

Just finished reading your interpretation of Beauty and the Beast. I won't lie; I was a little skeptical on whether I should read it or not (I'm a huge Beauty and the Beast fan - from watching the Disney movie as a child to reading the first written versions of the tale as an adult), but I was pleasantly surprised by your unique twist on the story. The characters are amazingly well-rounded, and the storyline is very intriguing.

I can't wait to read more! :)

I read your BatB. Its wonderful. Please continue the story.

P.C. I cant decided which character is sexier, Beast or Prince.
EliseOtterlei's avatar
Hey, thanks a lot! I'm glad you like it:D
Believe me, I fully intend to continue the story, I'll even complete it! (Don't worry, it won't be abandoned)
And I'd have a hard time deciding between those two myself;)

Your welcome. The story is cool. Sorry its not my place to comment, but why dont you change a little their names? Its a bit hard to pronounce their names, you know. Anyway, keep going.

P.S. Your BEAST is different from disney version(I dont say that I dont like disney version, but I like more your version of beast). As for the prince, I am enchanted by his eyes and smile(OH THAT SMILE AND LOOK IN HIS EYES).
