Promises, part I The 27th. The day had come. Hailey didn’t know how to feel. Was she even feeling anything? There was just too much going through her mind at the moment: too much, all too quickly. But the excitement of it all didn’t turn her away. It only made her want to go through it more. She had to know if all of this was worth it, and this was the highest chance she was ever going to get. “I never thought I’d see the day.” Hailey stood in front of her bedroom mirror in complete awe of the girl she saw. “What is this? Who am I?” Her caste-bound shackles locking her to the dregs of society vanished, and her appearance finally matched the whimsies and wonders she kept inside. The markup of any purchasable item, from the everyday necessity to the extravagant pleasure, was one of many scarlet letters set solely for those in her stratum, and it left no found crumb or earned coin to be wasted. Every member of the family that could work did work – some, including Hailey, having

Faux Pas | Part 1 “All the shit we do, and this doesn’t get any easier.” “It’s only because no one does it like we do or… or, ugh, at all, really.” The Center of Colors, the most marveled museum of art in all of Oswana if not the entire world, was a fortress in its own right, and all attempts by a not-so-young maho madam to push open the one door inside it that led to its underground car park were to no avail. The age of the door was a blink in comparison to the building that housed it. Looking past that, it still was not used as proportionally often as originally designed due to ‘more preferr

Played "I've got to say, Freya. For someone who has only learned how to play this game fairly recently, you sure do put up quite a fight." "Yeah... How about no, Ren? I don't think 'fight' is the word if I can never win... or even get past a certain point *gasp* like I've just done again. Damn it!" Ren, Freya's current game opponent and best friend for a handful of years, couldn't help but chuckle at her repeated rookie mistake on the game board and her frustration. As routine as the failures were, he also couldn't help but be proud of her for finally realizing that at a certain point – the only he always somehow got her to reach –

*gasp* *cough* Oh, good god. What? I thought I was— But, how am I—? Didn’t I get—? Wait, where am I? Hard: I’m on something hard. Hard, flat, slick, and cold. My back hates this. I’m guessing it’s a floor. But I feel grooves, not just one that takes up my entire hand. It almost feels… made for me. Impossible. My eyes; they’re closed. It’s dark, behind and in front of the lids. Yet, there’s a glow: a… soft one? Not the blinding white from before? It’s cool, still, but not as much somehow. I wait for a voice to give me any sort of insight of where I am, and all I get back is just the gentle hum of a… a… Wait, is that a fan? No, is that a heater? Even on the hottest days outside in the real world – real because this is a fantasy, still, especially if I’m alive – it never went past room temperature. I… I’m boiling like I’m stuck in an oven. Oh, my god. Am I being cooked in here? No, screw that. I’ll accept going out in plenty of ways in this diminutive state, but I will not go out as

    “Madi?”    The girl in question gasped and shook at the reverberation of her name – Jake’s already orotund voice ringing even more from proximity and can dynamics. So focused on retrieving her phone, she didn’t detect his approach, but the anything but quiet query brought her back to reality. This grossly fucked reality. Just like how Jake reacted to her, Madi knew this made all too much sense to not be real, even though the results were terrifying on her end rather than worrisome. Nevertheless, safety was right there like what she wanted, so she had to be grateful and get it.    Madi took a breath before

A Tribute to Chadwick Boseman

A Tribute to Chadwick Boseman

Chadwick Boseman, an actor well-known and well-loved around the world, passed away last week. There have been many posts around the Internet about his passing, and we want to pay tribute to him as well by sharing works in honor of him from artists within the community. Chadwick Boseman’s first leading role in a feature film was Jackie Robinson in 42, portraying the first African-American to play in Major League Baseball. This was one of several instances where he portrayed a historical figure on screen, and he never shied away from that, having been quoted as saying, “People have said, 'You don't need to do any more biopics. You don't need to play any more real people.' I don't agree with that.” He took the importance of depicting African-American historical figures in film and theatre seriously, and he gave each and every role he played the knowledge and understanding that person deserved. Whether he was on the field as Jackie Robinson, dancing on stage as James Brown, or standing

Eclipse Experience: Wishlist

Eclipse Experience: Wishlist

Below, please find a quick reference of points I have highlighted that I "wish" for, to make my overall Eclipse experience improved. Basically, this is a simplified version of my Eclipse Experience journal guide. This also serves as yet another reminder of things I feel are more necessary to the overall "devious" experience for myself and others here on DeviantART verses unneeded minor cosmetic changes. :star: Disclaimer: All of these are equally important to me, and I wish to have a relevant listing all in one place so that folks can have it at their fingertips without having to search for: 1) several (unnecessary) journals with the same content and: 2) try and figure out which journal had which listings. All of these suggestions are in no particular order; so without further adieu: :pointr: Pagination added for browsing in galleries and endless scrolling eliminated. :pointr: Less harshness with the extreme contrast with the "black" and "white" modes. :pointr: A way to

"A human being is a part of the whole called by us 'universe', a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the while of nature in its beauty." -Albert Einstein

A list of musically visual references to G/t

A list of musically visual references to G/t

In regards to this journal, this is a catalog of musical artists, songs, and videos with some relation or inspiration to G/t: giants, tinies, and their possible interactions. If you would like to add to the list, please comment below or note me, if you'd rather be private. Preferably, list your selection in a format similar to: "Song Name", Artist Name, Album Name (if applicable), [link to official or fan-made video, if possible]. You can add country/region of origin, too, and other comments (like music genre), if you believe it necessary. **NOTE: Because the videos in this list are meant to be collective finds, they will be left unspecifie

A somewhat spooky idea has come to mind. Let's see if I can do it by Saturday.
