A Gift of A Dream
    Desmond Miles had no sense of time. 
    Inside the nondescript van that he, Shaun, Rebecca and William had been traveling in, there was no source of natural light, the back windows blacked out to shield from prying eyes.  It was probably night time now, since there had been bright sunlight when the back doors were last opened a while back, but the actual amount of time that passed since then could have been twelve minutes just as easily as twelve hours.
    When Desmond had woken up from his comatose state earlier, his teammates had breathed a sigh of relief for his safety before going back to their duties with renewed fervor.  Desmond had wanted to help, but all he could produce was a thin, weak assertion.  He was still drained from his ordeal, and his limbs felt as though they were composed of lead. 
    Rebecca firmly insisted he stay put.  “I know you don’t exac

David Sarif saw himself as a practical man. He held stock in science, what could be seen and proven, what could be calculated and understood by logic. But even he had to admit there was something magical happening before him.
He was standing in the darkened observation suite of the surgical wing in Sarif Industries, the company he had built from the ground up. It had been well over thirty-six hours since they had suffered an attack from some unknown black ops group, led by three heavily augmented soldiers. In their wake they had left several dead; only a few were fortunate enough to be alive and wounded, and five of Sarif's top scientists were missing without a trace.
And now Sarif's head of security, Adam Jensen, lay in the operating room as the CEO watched. Two doctors and a nurse, the second of three teams working in shifts, hovered over the ex-cop, feverishly working with a multi-armed medbot. Working, not to save Adam's life-that part was already secured four hours ago-but to turn

Help! I have a Mary Sue!
You know that you have a Mary Sue when she upsets the monochromatic color scheme of my Writer's Guides.
Mouse over blue text to see a note.
Internet communities often lash out at writers who create Mary Sues. Declaring the writing to be below their standards, they proceed to punish the creators. They mock the characters, verbally abuse the writers, and write hyperbolically about how much they wish the characters would die.
Bullying writers (who may be very young) is only going to make them afraid to write—and therefore improve—or share their work. Not only that, but it discourages other writers from speaking for fear of public mockery, and it may silence the voices that could someday become great.
If you've directly or indirectly suffered from the abuse of such individuals, let me first apologize on their behalf. I don't care if your story stinks so much that it can be smelled from fifty miles away; mocking you

So I thought I'd go back to working on my Assassin's Creed oneshot fic I'd started months ago.  

Here's a teaser:

The life of an Assassin was a life of loss, a commitment that did not relent in old age and followed you to the end of your days.  Why did he have to be shackled with such a burden, Desmond used to wonder in his youth.  At the very least, soldiers ventured across oceans and visited a myriad of locales as they prepared to confront their enemy.  He, on the other hand, had spent his entire life at the Farm, with bland food and teachings about the ongoing battle between Templars and Assassins practically beaten into his mind, while never once going beyond the confines of the Farm, and never seeing a face to go with the enemy he had never met.  

An eagle caged was an eagle doomed to die.  So he escaped when he could, and when he had finally had made his way out of the compound, every part of his body tingled with joy that threatened to burst out of him.  He was finally free from his prison, and spread his wings to explore the world before him—only to eventually be caught again, this time by the enemy he had been told about all his life.

It's a kind of introspective from Desmond's POV, but there's a bit on Ezio and Altair as well.  It's going to be rather sentimental, actually. :p

After this one, I have plans for 2 other AC oneshots, including a look into the bleeding effect affecting Desmond when he first arrives in Italy, and another one that would mark my first ever slash... (DesxShaun, hatefuck).  Way less confident about that one, though. :o

And yes, "Solace" has not been forgotten!  I've been working on it as well.

Artist | Student | Traditional Art
I live in Vancouver, I study art at Emily Carr University. It's good, but I do hate the pretentious side of fine art, and the current popularity of conceptual art. D:

I like drawing fanart and CG illustrations when I'm not doing traditional-style art for school. :)

Pleased to meet another Deus Ex fan who likes Adam Jensen as well as who writes quite a good fanfic. I especially liked your story Deus Ex Solace, and I sincerely wished you continued it. 

Amelia is a VERY interesting character, and I liked how you have given her a wonderful personality and her interactions with Jensen was pretty good. I also liked the character interactions because you have paid attention to how people react and converse in the Deus Ex universe, and the technobabble makes me like the story even more. XD

I am curious, did you catch up on Mankind Divided as well as on the published books such as Icarus Effect and Black Light? 

Did you also have a chance to read The Art of The Deus Ex Universe? (I have read it, and I love the details they have put into making the game.)

Hi, in searching around and finding your Adam Jensen art, you might be interested in :icondeus-ex-4eva:. Come take a look, and if you have any trouble joining (providing you want to that is) please let me know :la:.

I'm really impressed with the work that went into your Jensen cosplay from Deus EX: Human Revolution, you've just earned a watch from me :3

I'm inspired from the cosplay you've made to possibly work towards a cosplay of Jensen's slightly different look in the new game, Mankind Divided, which I cannot wait to be released X3

Thanks for the compliment! I actually totally forgot that I haven't really taken good photos of the finished cosplay when I wore it at PAX Prime a few years back. Should go back and do that... I do plan on eventually remaking some of the pieces, having gained a bit of experience and seeing where I made mistakes the first time.

I'm not sure if I'll do the Mankind Divided costume, since it doesn't look drastically different, and also I'd like to refine the first one I did first.  But so looking forward to that game. :D

Hi there! Just wanted to drop in and say that I absolutely love your work! Keep it up!

Hey there !
You are probably unaware that someone just redid your picture, here -->…
Just thought you should know. Guy has redone some of my pictures too so I decided to spread the word about him, because I'm not the only one whose art has been copied and I can recognize some of the original pictures that this guy faked.

today someone re-installed DXHR because of you!
aaaand i can't supress the urge to spam a little bit:


btw: are you done with your eve jensen cosplay already?
Natsuyume Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2013  Student Traditional Artist
Glad to hear you're playing it again; it's a great game! :)

I did finish the cosplay and wear it in time for PAX Prime last year, but didn't get decent quality pics, and the costume went through some wear and tear, so I'll have to patch it up a bit and try to find a decent photographer to take pics at some point in the future.

Also, thanks for the watch!
