Sitting Idle
In a shade beneath a branch
On a spot beside a creek
In a place that is still, with only wind and greenery and earthy smells
On a bench I sit alone, comfortable in my own clothes
Someone is coming along
In a practical outfit but without shoes
With a smile and a reckless skip
With a laugh that melts me, and mixes with the hum of the creek
He asks if he can sit with me
"Of course." I say
He is warm. "Do you know where you are?"
I shrug. "I don't. But it's very nice."
"You're some place that won't be here forever. It will change soon."
"But at least it's here now."
He nods and chuckles. "Enjoy it."
"I am. I'm glad I'm not enjoying it alone, too."
We sit alone
Almost as soon as he came, he gets up to leave
He turns to me with a smile, but his eyes are serious
So is his tone
"I'm going to go away for now. But I'll be right back very soon."
"Okay. I'll see you soon."
He chuckles again and nods his head
I watch him walk off, and then I wait
In that shade beneath the branch

“Last night I dreamt I was in the hospital again.” said Simon. He leaned against the fence, and now his gaze was aimed directly at the pavement. He made a nervous gulp, but nearby a flurry of jogging en masse muffled it. He was thankful for that.
Not looking, he could still tell that Jasper Day was looking at him.
“You didn’t tell me you’d dreamt that before?” was the response. Jasper squeezed at the loose fabric of his oversized grey hoodie. He watched his classmate from the other side of the chain link. Did Simon want to be left alone?
“Oh, then…I guess never mind. Sorry, that was dumb.”
Laughter responded. Whenever Jasper Day laughed, Simon was always sure to laugh in return. He looked up.
Jasper stepped closer to the fence. “When was the last time you had that dream?”
“Like, two weeks ago? I mean—it’s not always the exact same dream. The last time I remember so clearly the hospital room was just the

Watchers

Guys this isn't gonna be a great return or anything, and I doubt anyone will prolly even see this (most of my old friends I'm betting won't remember me much).

Long Story Short I'm rereading all my old batman graphic novels and it is giving me nostalgia and melancholy like nothing I have EVER felt before. Guys, I became a Batman fan because I had the hugest crush on Tim Drake as Robin. That character came at me at that time in my life where I was unable to ignore my growing attraction to boys, and comic books as a whole were this intimidating, overwhelming medium that brought me so much joy and yet, intimidation. Having nobody in my real life who I could talk to about these stories or characters, I turned to dA. Comics, and also the crazy talented people I came to meet, pushed my imagination and expanded my worldview in this crazy way. I *HAD* to write and draw and imagine and create.

That was such a wonderful time, you guys.

It makes me a little sad because that unabashed surplus of energy and happiness and wonder that I had coursing through me every single day--and the deep, real love I had for fictional characters, pieces of writing, and people who's talents I wanted to learn from...

...none of that comes easy anymore, now that I'm an adult. (I turned 21 this last December!)

I miss that time, being a kid. Loving this site. Loving Tim Drake. Loving you guys.

This will always be here, so that's a comfort. I don't know if any of you can even understanding what I'm saying. Or remember that time. Or are even reading this, haha. But thanks. I've missed you guys.

Hi! I'm Hagen. I think I might be taking a crack at reviving my dA account for memories sake. Pretty much everything I'm posting here will be the stuff on my Tumblr blog, but with some bonus descriptions and context and some stuff? I dunno. I might abandon this in two weeks.

GiraffePeace Art Dump
I am keeping up all my GiraffePeace fan art so I can keep it in the gallery of :icongiraffepeace-lovers:, a dead fan club for a great writer and fun person who I'll probably never get to meet again. On the off chance she ever comes back to dA, I'm keeping these cringey works up in her honor lol.

---


This is pretty much a bunch of random sketches I did of my good (but a bit mental) friend :icongiraffe-peace:'s characters from her two TOTALLY AWSOME fanfiction that go by the names of Adventures with Dick Grayson (giraffepeace.deviantart.com/ga…)
and Horshoes and Handgrenades (giraffepeace.deviantart.com/ga…)

Because I feel like it, I'm going to go on a huge rant on this picture.

---

I will first start with Joan Jordon...At first I really didn't know what to do with her. I guess I sorta had to go beyond the girls I usually draw. I always pictured Joan as a very Covered up type of person, she really doesn't give a shit about what she looks like...she just doesn't wanna look like a whore. It was a challenge for me to draw a girl without an OH-SO-OBVIOUS breatsline going over the torso area.
As you can see, she's also wearing a "Punkitude" shirt, which traces back to a convo I had with :icongiraffe-peace: I while ago.

---

AS FOR KAYLA...I suppose I picture her as Joan but a wee bit toned down. She's still a kickass punk, but she cares a wee bit ore about herself and her appearence than Joan does. I wanted to make her look kinda punk but not ALL THE WAY. I hope I did. IDK. lol

---

MARY SUE: This was my rendering of Kayla's idea of a Mary Sue in fav.me/d3azdf2
I don't really know what she's doing in here. then again, she is MARY SUE. She's in EVERYTHING.

---

JOAN AND DAMIAN...This is exactly what it is. If you notice the bubble around them it ALMOST looks like a heart. HUH, GET IT? AM I RIGHT?

*cricket chirps*

...DX

---

KAYLA CLOAKED AND KAYLA/GLORIA: Okay, Kayla cloaked is pretty much the product of me HATING SIMPLICITY, therfor I added the little neck/torso line thingy...I fon't know DX.
Kayla, The Gloria vesion, is a different matter. I won't give away serious spoilers so I'll just say I think this is how ______s would wear their hair...you know, so it doesn't get in the way.

AND THERE I END MY RANT OF RANTYNESS. ENJOY MY RUSHED ART.

“Last night I dreamt I was in the hospital again.” said Simon. He leaned against the fence, and now his gaze was aimed directly at the pavement. He made a nervous gulp, but nearby a flurry of jogging en masse muffled it. He was thankful for that.

Not looking, he could still tell that Jasper Day was looking at him.

“You didn’t tell me you’d dreamt that before?” was the response. Jasper squeezed at the loose fabric of his oversized grey hoodie. He watched his classmate from the other side of the chain link. Did Simon want to be left alone?

“Oh, then…I guess never mind. Sorry, that was dumb.”

Laughter responded. Whenever Jasper Day laughed, Simon was always sure to laugh in return. He looked up.

Jasper stepped closer to the fence. “When was the last time you had that dream?”

“Like, two weeks ago? I mean—it’s not always the exact same dream. The last time I remember so clearly the hospital room was just the hotel room my family stayed in this one time we went to Houston. It was like, space themed. I never saw a doctor. But like…I knew I was hurt. I knew it was like…really serious. It felt like a hospital bed.”

“What does a hospital bed feel like?”

“Not particularly comfy.”

Jasper’s face reddened as he smiled. “So, what was this last dream like, then?"

Simon smiled and let his body relax. He stopped relying on having his arms rest on the top of the fence and let them dangle.

“It was…creepy. I didn’t see any doctors again. But this was like, a normal hospital room..”

“No spacemen.”

“No, nothing spacey.” Simon laughed. “Just…”

Jasper Day’s smiling lips began to slip. He looked now at Simon with the fear of someone who was afraid he’d misspoken.

Rushing to assure him, Simon pressed his body against the fence to close in some of the space between them. “Just! …I, uh…I don’t really want to go into details, but I had a really scary experience recently. I almost…” Died. You almost Died, Simon. “…got really hurt.”

Jasper’s face morphed into a strained ogle. He wanted to ask, but he was nervous to. That almost was a worse thing to have to watch. Simon wanted to assure him that nothing was wrong, but he didn’t want to lie to Jasper again. Just one day where I don’t have to lie to Jasper Day.

A long moment passed, and then Jasper swept back in.

“Well, are you okay?”

Simon felt his fists tighten at his sides. He wanted to exhale his exhaustion but resisted the feeling and just gulped again. Suddenly, he jerked his head to the side, an action that made Jasper flinch a bit. He leaned his ear in, and made a face as though he were looking at something far off.

He turned back to Jasper just to say, “Yeah, I’m great now.” with a cocky smile and a little salute. Now he was running the track in the direction of the fieldhouse. He cocked his head up, a signal to an imaginary person in the crowd of resting runners ahead that he was pretending to consort with.

His fists grew even tighter as he ran.

Just one day. Just one.
Just One
First sentence prompt: 'Last night I dreamed I was in the hospital again'

I've got a million story/character ideas that I don't got time for. So why not try to do weekly little one-shots using all those writing prompts blogs I've been collecting and never using for years?

so fuckin... hey this might end up a little long winded but im just gonna go for it

the puppetmaster's regime was a genuinely life-changing expierence, i've never read a piece online or in print that understood child sexual abuse and trauma as well as the narrative of this story did and presented it in a believable, RELATABLE (for CSA survivors) light as well as you did.

it was some wild shit dude like the entire thing was a RIDE and it was incredible. its so important to my close friends and i, we've all read it and it was practically a healing experience for all of us because fuck like, you as a writer GET it. so few writers actually do and know how to tie these themes in to cool metaphor and aesthetic stuff in their stories, but every word felt almost familiar in the sense that we know what these kids went through and we know the mindsets behind each of the abusers in the story like the backs of our hands, we've seen bits and pieces of 'em all out there.

we sit around and theorize all kinds of shit like actual literary analysis on your work aghfhdjrjgdjjh i hope that doesn't seem weird... it's a very important work to us it's definitely somehow that inspired ME as a writer and a survivor to keep going with my own work, that stories like these are worth telling, etc

tl;dr honestly dude?? thank you

HELLO! I am so sorry this reply is coming at you like six months(!?) after the fact, but here it goes!

I appreciate your words so much, and they really do mean a lot to me. I've read comments from quite a few people about their positive reactions to the story's themes, but you're probably the first to tell me directly, haha. If I can be very honest I've always worried about this story because I didn't want to treat the themes flippantly or offensively, but most people seem to feel good about that aspect. I even made big huge plans to massively overhaul the entire story before, but I lost some files and all I have now is the revised Part One. Maybe someday, but ugh lol.

Enough about me, though. It's incredibly humbling to hear that you responded so well and that my words could have any sort of positive effect on you as well as your writing. I really do hope you continue to write and tell stories, and I wish you all the luck in the dang world because it's sooo hard, but totally worth it when you see that word count go up.

Again, totally super sorry for the late reply
