Design me an OC duo contest (1k prize)I finally came up with the perfect contest idea
this idea is gonna be challenging but i really wanna see your guys's ideas!
the concept this time is;
design me an oc duo (2 ocs that go along with each other) without just reverting colors/patterns
ive been dying to see a duo done well without just reverting the colors/contrasting colors (like ones black and ones white) you can give em similar face shapes or similar outfits but i want each character to be unique but you can still tell they go together. (they can be siblings or a couple but PLEASE tell me which you draw them as)
now im not saying you cant have a white and brown piebald oc with an all black oc but please....
PLEASE put effort into it!
im allowing plenty of extensions this time so please dont rush and ofc lmk if life gets in the way just dont slap on 5 different excuses if you just lacked motivation, just be honest with me man be like "hey i couldnt think of an idea i could properly make so i got frustrated and
Death, Devil, Magician and FoolLate Autumn. 1918. I remember the day with perfect clarity. The sailors had revolted in Germany but we did not know that yet. The telegraph lines had gone down again. They were always going down, so out in our tiny garrison we simply assumed that the war was grinding on as it had for years. Woodrow Wilson had sent us the doughboys, but these men seemed far more intent on getting their hands on some lusty French lasses than battling the Hun. We called them doughboys because they seemed soft and puffy, like little bundles of dough awaiting the oven. Once they met the relentless pounding of artillery at the front we were sure they would be crying to be sent back overseas, back where they belonged.
The Commandant? He knew the trenches. He had actually been one of the first men to dig a trench and in the trenches he would have remained had not a German flammenwerfer slipped past our lines. I shot that man, but not before he soaked our ditch down in flames. The commander shielded me with his
How to Paint Yourself DepressedChapter 1 -
Allow a slip of the tongue now and then when nobody's looking,
snatch the truth back up and bury it in your pocket
to tumble crumpled into a collection of inky snowflakes in the wash.
Find them again and feel bitter that no one saw their truth.
Cut your heart into breadcrumbs,
spread out for wild animals and left-over the earth,
part of you hoping someone will follow.
Try not to care when they scatter it to the birds.
Hide behind braids of flowers in the garden back,
listen with breath baited for hurried footsteps and searching hands -
a solo game of Marco Polo.
Miss a beautiful afternoon
whispering "I'm here"
choosing to be lost and losing moments.
Hush your heartbeat like a monk's.
Imagine eating monkshood and monkeyhead mushrooms
until it’s quiet for good.
Cross the interstate line that separates dreamtime from the world,
curse the violence of longing for a different life.
Hang a vacant sign over the nape of your neck
smacking against your collarbones

Unexpected Feelings for a Thief Ch:1Unexpected Feelings for a Thief
Chapter 1: How it Began
Today started out as a normal day for me. I woke up, managed to get dressed before the servants came in and slipped out into the hall way. Many would think that being a princess of Egypt would be easy and the dream life for anyone, but not for me. My Father is strict and even cruel. Since the birth of my brother Malik and his twin Mariku I’m not sure if things have gotten better or worse. For me it’s gotten a bit better, sadly because he’s focusing all his attention on the twins. It didn’t take long for Mariku to come to despise him and Malik for being too ‘weak’ to stand up to him as well. Malik loves Father but fears him more greatly and I feel that there is underlying hatred he won’t acknowledge. For this Mariku hates him as he hates me for doing nothing. Then there’s also Rishid who he despises for ‘babying’ Malik.
Wearing my worn out robe I turn into the back

- Instructions -
** Life = 3
Ask permission before you walk through the gate. Do not touch the statues, for they might bite. Enter the house. Make yourself at home, but mind your manners. Do not eat the food laid out on the table, it is for the gnomes, so leave the door open that they may enter. Head out in the garden to water the plants (use the water from the well), but take the broomstick. You might need it. Don't forget to fill Gadget and Gizmo's bowls. Gizmo is sociable, but beware of Gadget—he's a bit tempermental.
Hopping off your bike, you read over the strange list of instructions your eccentric Aunt Clio gave to you when she asked you to look after her house for a few days. The "list" was actually in the form of a midnight blue, leat
How to live peacefully on the internet?Rule 1: Focus on yourself, not what others say or do.
Before you try to change the world you go and clean up your own room. If someone or something pisses you off, rather than trying to teach them, you figure out why it bothers you and see what you can do to not be bothered by it.
Only go and privately point stuff out if it's a close friend/person and you have enough trust built up to be able to resolve misunderstandings if there are any. With strangers/acquaintances, it's better to avoid those kinds of things as you 1)don't know them well enough to understand what they mean, 2)since you aren't close, it is plainly not your business, 3)you don't know what kind of person they want to be either, so you can't give them advice they need.
If being around someone makes you upset all the time, rather than raging at them, you be around them less or cut them out from your life altogether. Trust your gut when it comes to this. You like yourself when you are around people you sh
