.:LightningClan - Breeding Like Rabbits:.
Daisymask emerged from the medicine den, shoulders hunched, all life sapped from her. She was likely the world’s biggest fool; she could hardly believe she had let herself be so full of such a false hope. StarClan, did she never learn?
She had all the signs, though - she felt that little bit stiffer, more grouchy and tired. Vaguely swollen belly, and from her view, the occasional heart palpitations she experienced wasn’t necessarily linked with her anxious mind. And, oh, the vomiting - all the vomiting, the thing that had initially made her consider it...
It was a shock, sure, but the joy of believing she was pregnant was insurmountable. To have it all stripped away again was nigh impossible to recover from - or, at least, that was how she currently felt.
'Simply a fever,' she had been told. A fever of the head, more like.
She moped across camp, hoping to excuse herself for a little bit of time - maybe find Volty or Shale, if she remembered correctly, they were on patrol to

.:LightningClan - Requiem:.
“Okay, I’ll give it to you. You had us pegged.”
“Ooh, say that again. I love it when cats tell me I’m right.”
Shadowfire laughed heartily, bumping his shoulder against her. Daisymask laughed with him, her tired smile mirroring those she had been showing off for the last several moons. She loved this life she was leading; loved being out in the fresh air of this new camp, loved spending time with her friends and family. Loved her new kits more than she thought possible.
Well, they were apprentices now, weren’t they? If they caught wind of her even thinking of them still being kittens, they’d surely finish her off. She chuckled at the thought. They were growing up so quickly.
And Shadowfire was as polite as ever, letting her drift off in her thoughts without questioning her, or even feeling offended. She could quite happily keep him around, and, given how his courtship with Shalestep seemed to be progressing, she doubted he would ever leave

Literature
.:LightningClan - Just My Imagination:.
Ashstorm could never have guessed how bright the stars were, thanks to the artificial light streaming in from all the surrounding twolegs’ nests and lamps back in their old camp. But this new camp, this new place to call home, was so isolated; so far away from those wretched beasts and their giant, roaring monsters, so far away from anything that could take away his freedom and from the stars.
Because here they were, sparkling in their thousands, blinking down at him. They challenged him to name them, to learn more constellations and pass their infinite knowledge to his kin. To anycat else they likely would’ve served as just a lovely sky decoration, but those little dots - those millions of glittering orbs - held great meaning to him. They served as his grounding point; reminded him of his roots; showed him just how far he’d come, both in travel and as a growing feline.
His mother was up there somewhere, a twinkling light in the darkness; a shining beacon of ho

.:LightningClan - Have a Little Faith:.
The shriek echoed throughout the new camp in a way Daisymask would have never expected for such an open territory. And, as she surely should have most definitely expected, a number of cats came rushing for her – Voltagewish, as always, the head of the pack.
“Daisy!” the tom called out. “Daisy, what’s wrong?”
Daisymask whipped her head around to see him properly, her small frame shaking in fright but eyes truly alert. She took in a little breath and replied, “Shale is not allowed in here in any circumstances, and I swear to StarClan if you let her past –”
“What? Dais –”
“– I will do something that I will surely regret later, and –”
“Dais…”
“– and… and…”
Voltagewish nudged his mate’s side comfortingly, flicking his tail to let his clanmates know there was no emergency. Some left with a laugh, others with a disgruntled huff. Daisymask

Leave Me Stranded
my mama always taught me
that while hate is a strong word,
there's one that trumps even that:
love
but maybe it's not
the right thing to say
when I admit to myself that I'm
in love with a man I've never met
aren't I just the biggest mess
you've ever had the displeasure
in meeting?
my brain is muddled and yet
for some reason my heart
still rings its words
true
that one day I'd be
brave enough,
strong enough,
independent enough
to buy a plane ticket and
travel halfway across the world
in the hopes to meet you
in a bookstore or café
and the way that we'd kiss
and fall in love
every day
and-
no,
oh my god
you absolute slut
what's wrong with you?
this isn't real
it's not love
you're not in love
what would mama say?
what did mama teach you?
put down your pen and
lock away these fantasies;
it's not fair to lose yourself
to the embrace of a man
who likely couldn't tell you
from a bar of soap,
who would see you in a
bookstore or café
in his homet

"Yeah, of course."

Literature
.:DoW - I Can See the Stars:.
“Can you believe it, Volty? We’re going to have a family!”
Daisymask looked expectantly at the cat in front of her with a grin. He looked back, a blank look on his face, and felt herself shrink back and paw at the ground nervously. Oh, who was she kidding – she was talking to a rock, for StarClan’s sake; albeit a decorated one, with a yellow and a green leaf sitting on its front and acting their part as eyes. Though, now that she thought about it, they were the on the wrong sides.
With a growl, she padded off, maddened by her constant need for perfection. It wasn’t as though all this practicing had ever worked out before, anyhow. It was stupid, useless, honestly a little reckless of her to sneak out yet again at such a late hour-
“Woah, there!”
Ow.
“Yikes, you okay? I often forget how sturdy I am.”
The she-cat scrunched up her nose in pain before regaining her grace, looking up at the hulking figure before

Ka-Thump, Ka-Thump
I think I'm relapsing again.
I see you everywhere,
in the smile of a passer-by
and the tilted head of a questioning child.
I hear your laughter,
the quiet boom that
sets my heart alight.
I don't understand.
I get sick to my stomach;
I have to look once,
                 twice,
                    thrice
just to be sure
that the boy by her side
isn't you.
I can't cope with the pressure.
I find myself
needing to constantly be
certain, completely,
that it's only my imagination
wanting me to hurt,
and not you enforcing the pain.
I never loved you.
So why,
why,
after a whole year,
a complete orbit
of precisely three hundred
and sixty-six days...
Why am I still hurting?
It's the way you would
walk onto the bus,
your insufferable swagger
as you viewed the sea
of faces
watching the Jack-ass take
up to two seats
when you could've
just as easily
stood those two

.:[4/4] Best of Wives, Best of Women - DoW:.
It had been nearly a moon since her talk with Voltagewish, and he still hadn’t returned to her with an acceptance of her proposition, or even a loyal decline – and because of such, she was left with false hopes that he’d decide not to move on. It was unkind and horrible and just purely selfish, but if she let herself believe that what they had was truly over, she’d be nothing more than an empty shell; silent and completely hollow.
In short, she wasn’t doing well in the slightest. It seemed her encounter with Lightningbolt – Voltagewish’s damn mother – in StarClan, alongside the second mass exodus of all six clans, wasn’t doing her much good, either. She was well and truly broken.
The she-cat noticed a jovial Shalestep finishing a patrol with a group of HighClan cats, seemingly glad to be around more familiar faces in the camp. She scanned the area for someone – likely to talk to – and flashed a knowing smil

Literature
.:[3/4] Back Before You Know I'm Gone - DoW:.
Daisy, to say the least, was exhausted. The pads of her paws were still aching from the long trek she made from HighClan territory to her old two-leg home, and then back again. Yet somehow, that wasn't even the worst thing – somehow, she hadn't realised what those wretched two-legs had done to her. Somehow she never realised what that big scar on her belly truly meant until she had spoken to Aster, and honestly it was just embarrassing to have to have him spell it out for her.
She frowned, picking again at the freskill at her feet. Who was she kidding? She lost her appetite days ago. With a sigh, she pushed the half-eaten mouse to the side and rested her head on her crossed paws. How would she tell Voltagewish?
The tom in question had been pacing around the warrior's den in a nervous fashion, his head low and his fur seemingly on end. Tulipshine, time and time again, had told him to calm down, told him that Daisymask had probably just gone on a walk; something which, of course, V

Literature
.:[2/4] An Early Meeting Out of Town - DoW:.
Normally, Daisymask obeyed every rule to the letter, petrified of punishment and even more frightened of having her friends and clan, her family, lose trust in her. Normally, Daisymask would never consider leaving such an unfamiliar area, especially without taking someone with her or at least telling them where she was headed and why.
But normalcy was thrown off the side of the HighClan cliffs when it came to her brother.
Aster, alongside Voltagewish, was easily the most important cat in her life – since birth the two were nigh inseparable, and even after the she-cat had left her kittypet home in search for a life with no two-legs, she still visited often enough that the two might as well have continued living together. Gradually though, as she grew more accustomed to clan life and their ways of being, she visited less often, until she finally only ever sought him out for her biggest life events – things like kitting days, her warrior ceremony, her first gathering.

Welcome to my artwork ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I love to write, and I personally think that my written pieces are the best part of my entire gallery.

I also enjoy traditional art, but I don't get much time to do it, and as my scanner doesn't work anymore I can only get poor quality photos of these pieces to share with deviantART.

I've given up all attempts at digital art, and unfortunately don't plan on restarting any time soon. However, if you'd like to give me tips on how to improve I might just make a reappearance... though even then, I'll admit it's unlikely!

Thank you for all of your support!

Howdy guys, gals and non-binary pals! My name is Hope – well, my internet name is, anyhow. My real name is Abby but honestly I answer to most things, including variations of my deviantART username! I’m an INFJ 18-year-old cis female (she/her/hers) who lives in Australia and really loves everything a bit too much. I also really like puns, and while I’m not great at them I tend to use a few daily.

I have a certain love for music. Some of my favourite musicians at the moment include Peter Hollens, Gabrielle Aplin, Imagine Dragons and Bastille, but my all-time favourite musician is easily Lin-Manuel Miranda. His musical Hamilton and pieces in Moana have changed my life for the better – an exaggeration, maybe, but it certainly doesn’t feel it. I also am obsessed with the game Undertale, and its spin-off AU Flowerfell.

Last year I started doing a Bachelor of Arts, studying a range of things like writing, history, biology and drama. In grade six we went to the CSIRO for an excursion, and from then I’d always wanted to be a forensic scientist or have a similar job in the crime force, but recently I’ve starting investing in the idea of following my mother’s footsteps into midwifery. I'm pursuing that interest now, and loving every second of it - though I’ve still got a lifetime ahead of me to sort it out.

I do write a lot, though. Like, a lot. I have a small bunch of super detailed characters, each of whom I love with my life. If you’re curious, feel free to check my CharaHub to learn more about them, or simply ask me! I could talk about each of them for days on end, and even plan to maybe publish a novel one day for at least one of them. My biggest inspiration in the writing world is Sarah J Maas, and specifically her Throne of Glass series.

Sometimes I write poems, though, and that’s normally a sign that I’m not mentally well. I’ve had clinical anxiety for several years now and since mid-2016 I’ve had touches of depression. It’s not been pleasant and I’m working through it, but much like anyone else who suffers any sort of mental illness or disability it takes a lot of time and hard work to heal, and that you often have to backtrack to get better. It’s messy, and it sucks, but it will one day get better.

I have several phenomenal friends who help me in my worst moments, and while there’s no way to thank every last one of them I’d like to give a ginormous shout-out to my best friends Chloe, Bridie and Jada, and also to people here like Mythiril and SpitfiresOnIce. Y’all help make the burden that little easier to bear x

While this doesn’t even cover half of who I am, I’ll sign off here. I wish to give a huge thank you to every visitor, every friend and every stranger on this website, and out there in the world. I’m thankful for each and every one of you <3 Please never hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns – I’ve been told I’m a good listener!

Kisses x
