Rock-a-dA: Chapter 24

Chapter 24: Free Again It was a day of celebration throughout dA.  Music filled the air, and the sun shined brighter than ever.  Virus had found his voice again, and a new song to go with it.  And hey—I even figured out how to tie my shoes! “Hey, j-rad, check it out!” I called to him. “Sweet!” he grinned when I showed him my tied laces.  He grabbed my hand and led me into the number.  “Now, c’mon—let’s join the party!  You too, guys!” he pointed to Ash and Joe.  They each stood up from the grass, did a cartwheel, and started clapping their hands in time with the music.

Chapter 23: Going Home When I woke up, I was lying on the shore of the island with the dead tree.  Everyone was either lying on different islands or floating in the water.  I slowly climbed up to the top, and there I found Virus.  He’d returned to normal, and he was resting against the tree.  I ran over to see if he was all right.  Everyone else started to wake up around me.  Chubeko, Kaze, Jack, Ash, and C.J. all turned to face me and Virus.  He opened his eyes, and was happy to see us. “We did it,” he smiled. “We did it,” I nodded. And so, our journey had finally come to an end—the storm was over, the

Chapter 21: Time’s Up Back at Virus’s house, the batteries had finally run out.  Cooner frantically shook the flashlight, but to no avail. “Oh no, no, no!” he moaned. “Oh yes, yes, YES!” Grynnt grinned. “Augh!” Cooner screamed and hid under a pillow. “Gentlemen—and lady—go down and … invite our friends to dinner,” Grynnt ordered. “Well, it’s about time,” Buud scoffed. “I just wish we didn’t have to sing about it,” Oogruk muttered.

Chapter 20: Return of the King The trauma sent Jared reeling out of his mind, falling through a dark tunnel as the world disappeared at the other end.  He passed through an opening and landed in a cave that was lit by an unnatural purple light.  Then he heard a deep, demonic laughter echoing off the walls. “What’s that?” he worried. A fire erupted through the cave, leaving Jared trapped at the edge of an open space.  From the other side of the ring of fire emerged a great horned shadow with glowing red eyes.  Jared trembled in fear at the sight. “So, this is how the story ends,” the shadow’s voice rumbl

Chapter 19: The Great Escape The four of us had managed to get the handkerchiefs off our faces by tugging at them with our teeth.  They weren’t tied very well at all—too bad the bouncers had done a better job with the rope. Impmon climbed up on top of Jack’s big-screen TV and flicked the fork attachment out of his knife. “Digi-celeration, hm-hm-hm-hm!” he snickered. He held the fork back over his head, but he held it back too far and crossed it with some wires coming out of the wall. “Ow!” he yelped as the electricity lit him up like a Christmas tree.  The TV came on and started playing a distort

Crusher slid the glass door shut while Spike kicked the barbecue off the back step, and they both walked away laughing. “No huskies, fawxes, wulves, or munkee-lizahds!  Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha.” As the bouncers were walking away, Impmon spotted them from overhead. “Aha!” he exc

Hey, y'alls. Just wanted to give a shout while I had the chance. I know I'm not on here as often as I'd like, but here I am. So, what's new? Well, first off, I turned 30 this past month. Yep, the big 3-0. I wish I could say I went out to celebrate, but I didn't, really. I mean, I have friends at work, but I'm not really close enough to hang out with any of them outside of work, and I really just didn't have the time or the money to do anything big. *sigh* That said, I did go out to see Blade Runner 2049 with my brother when it was in theaters and it ... was ... amazing. It was deep, heavy, atmospheric ... the kind of movie that can draw you

Hi, j-rad here.  So yeah, it’s been a while.  Not since I submitted the final chapter of Rock-a-dA.  Lot’s happened, needless to say.  For starters, last summer, my mom, my brother, and I moved to a new house.  Shortly thereafter, my mom moved to live with her boyfriend Eric in Sisters (east of the Cascades).  Shortly after that, a friend of my brother’s, Eli (short for Elizabeth) became our roommate.  And … yeah, I guess you could say I’ve finally been living in the real world for the first time.  I’m barely making enough money to get from one month to the next and I’ve had time to draw a whopping ON

Exactly one week from today, March 11, 2016 will mark the 8th Anniversary of my dA account.  And on that day, after 5 and ½ years of planning, writing, rewriting, and revising, I will finally begin submitting Rock-a-dA to my account.  I’ll post two chapters a week over a 12-week period (24 chapters in all).  It’s had a rocky history, to say the least, but I hope the final product will be well-received. When I began writing Rock-a-dA—a somewhat liberal reworking of Don Bluth’s Rock-a-Doodle with the personas/OCs of various deviantARTists as the heroes, troll characters of my own creation as the villains, a soundtr
