Carterhaugh: Time plays against us.

“Do you ever get one of those days where you’re acutely aware?” Caldar asked rather impressed he could still say acutely when he’d had this much to drink “That you’re always running out of time?  Every day. Just…running out of time.” This was the sort of thing that didn’t always make sense to  humans his age and you definitely couldn’t say in front of people you’d be in charge of in a couple of years.

Still it had been  more pleasant than wandering through the blood desert trying to punish a man for charging for water and fighting  men who wore feathers and changed into wild dogs,  that was for sure.

Free commission raffle (done)

Thanks for participating everyone, lets see who won :woohoo: And the lucky number is: Congrats KrazyKatherine (https://www.deviantart.com/krazykatherine) :D Just a small note, I'll do this again with my original style when I'm done with my regular commissions ;) Raffle? Is that the correct word? Anyway, those of you that follow my polls know that I wanted to do something special for my 300k pageviews. And after... I think it was for 150k, when I was giving 3 months of premium, there were like 3 or 4 winners ( and I didn't have enough points ^^; ) I will do this with raffle instead (because there will be only one winner, a lot more people will have a chance to win, plus theres

Her name is Susan

Her name is Susan. Her eyes are never the same color. Sometimes brown, sometimes green, and sometimes gray. She rarely smiles, but when she does, it is a small, wary smile... And if you look closely you can see the chips in her porcelain mask. Her name is Susan, and her eyes are the color of ghosts. She rarely smiles, but when she does it is filled with hope and renewal and pain. She wears her scars like a passport, marking where she's been. Her name is Susan, and her eyes are the color of wretched memories. She rarely smiles, but when she does it is fierce and loyal and brave. She is my best friend.

Let's go camping

Ok everyone,  I know it's been ages since I've actually updated this, so here's a few  pieces of news. 1) I'm still in Spain though I only have 3 weeks of my contract left, in 4 weeks (the  30th of June,) I finish work and go travelling around Spain for two weeks then go to visit friends in England and finally return to Switzerland. 2)  I'm feeling lots better  than  in December. I still love teaching and hate my current boss, but whatever. 3) I'm going to be an auntie :D  This is totally  totally awesome 4) I'm gonna do  camp nano.  I'm a fool to try it in June and fully expect to fail  bcause  of  tme issues, but hell getting something
