Before her was a realm of a tranquil color. Looking at her paws, she noticed a pool of water before her, her reflection staring back at her. “Welcome, Nirmala,” Nirmala shot her head up at the sound of her own name being called. Standing before her was a creature unlike she had ever seen. It wasn’t an animal, at least one she didn’t know about. The creature itself had a light-colored skin, adorned in some form of clothing, long robes of various colors, and some gold adornments around the collar. Long blue hair hung down from its head, and a pair of red-colored irises stared back at the lioness. But what drew Nirmala’s eyes in were the two green markings upon the creature’s forehead. Instinctively, Nirmala asked, “Who are you?” “Worry not Nirmala, I am what you might call the mother of the Tree of Life, and all of its kin.” The creature responded. “It’s kin?” Nirmala questioned. The creature nodded, “Yes, this tree is one of many of it’s kind.” “There are other trees?” Nirmala

The Tree of Life. Once it had served as a beacon of hope for animal kind. It had been a haven for the rare and sick. It had been ruled by the Night Pride, guardians of the Tree, and the only ones capable of harnessing it’s healing properties. They had guarded it for generations, offering shelter for those who needed it. So many rare animals lived here, so many kinds and variety, seeking shelter, or simply for healing. Yet that was long ago. Littered throughout the tree and various habitats were bones. So many. Some were regulars. Others, new arrivals. The latter was more fresh and less sun-bleached than the former. Fresh vestiges of meat hung off the newer ones. All of them hapless creatures who believed they had found shelter. Yet their hope had quickly turned to terror once they found what had taken root at the tree. Long ago, an army of predators had arrived at the Tree of Life. Well, rather an African leopard, a snow leopard, and a komodo dragon. Time and again they had attacked

Changing Spots Chapter 8

The leopard family had traveled far from the beach. Though the memory of their reunion with Ora still lay fresh in their minds. So much that both parents kept a lookout for their former companion. Chuluun scanned the area carefully, for this area was familiar to them. Back during their original journey to the Tree of Life, one of the locations they had traveled through was a canyon, and it was that very canyon they now traveled through. There were so many cooks and crannies to hide in. It had benefited them when they were stalking the Lion Guard, and Chuluun wouldn’t have put it past Ora to use the same technique on them. “Do you see him?” Chuluun suddenly found herself asking. Makucha came to a stop and examined the rocky walls and terrain, “No, no sign of him.” Chuluun shuddered, “I don’t like this. This seems too easy.” “Relax Chuluun, if Ora wanted to try something he would have done it already.” Makucha reasoned. "Well, he was more force than brains."

Settled in the darkness, he sat on his throne. Distant fires burned from the pits. The only sounds that gave out were the sounds of the undead. How long had he been here? He didn’t know. It had been so long ago since he was sent here. The denizens of the Abyss had long submitted to him. He recalled that day when they all bowed down to him, right after he had killed their god. He wasn’t even sure if he even was alive anymore? The only times he took off his armor were his times of rest, but he wore it a majority of the time. After all, lords of the abyss had to maintain a certain presence. For the most part, he lived well. Though he did not let himself go to waste. He had seen how the lull of sins had tainted his former friends. He knew partly it wasn’t their faults they ended up the way they did. After all, his predecessor had corrupted them. No, that wasn’t it, he had simply pushed what was already there to the surface. He supposed the possessed wizard had a point. After all, the

Name: Wing Mother: Mayu Father: Bat Brother: Kuro Sister: Mina Maternal Grandmother: Cross Maternal Step-Grandfather: Ben Uncle: Mao Half-Uncles: Ken and George Half-Aunt: Minnie Bio: Wing is the eldest son of Mayu and Bat, and the grandson of Cross. He and his siblings were born in a forest and resided in the hollowed-out trunk of a tree. Wing lived happily with his family until some bad dogs from his mother's past found them. Fearing for their safety, Wing's parents moved him and his siblings to Ohu. It should be noted Wing's main motivator for moving to Ohu was because his parents told him the food was better. The family eventually arrived in Ohu and Wing quickly settled there, becoming best friends with Hiro and Reika's eldest son Kin. While here, Wing also learned of his mother's past and his grandmother Cross. Though their arrival and stay at Ohu were not completely peaceful, Wing is happy to live in his new home. Personality: Wing is a very brash headstrong dog. He rushes in

Pointing out a thief

Pointing out a thief

It's come to my attention that someone going by the name @sketch-shepard has stolen my friend @Sketch-Shepherdeperd artwork, name, and generally everything. I find this most infuriating as this person did this after my friend left DA because of Eclipse. This is her hard work and this scumbag is parading it around like it's his. Just pointing this out. He's been reported, though if anyone wants to join in be my guest.
You know? I was talking to a friend and she mentioned something about Cool Cat. She suggested that maybe Cool Cat would be less upsetting if he had been a puppet instead of a guy in a suit. It would have made him being a child more plausible.

Heya! I am doing alright, been busy with life, getting my depression under control and hiding from the corona virus. How have you been?

NoratcatHobbyist Writer

Oh, doing good! Still writing, trying to learn a new language, and working. I've also been playing Mortal Kombat 11 a lot. Sorry about the depression man. I know what that is like. Took me years of seeing a psychiatrist to get over it. Still some scarring but overall I'm good!

Oh btw, ignore my message on FA. I wasn't sure if you were still active on this site, so I messaged you there as well. Sorry about that.

LamaohiHobbyist Writer

No need to apologize, it is good to reach out over on multiple platforms incase one is no longer using one of those said platforms. Been playing a lot of different games as of late meself, on different platforms. Mostly PC but some Switch and older games on Wii as well.

So what language are you studying then?

NoratcatHobbyist Writer

Esperanto. It's supposed to help you learn other languages. I've been using Duolingo.
