A Haunted Night
The last drop of black coffee fell into the pot of her coffee machine. She took it, impatiently poured the coffee into her cup. Then she returned to her desk, her hands shaking but now both wrapped around the warm cup with the picture of a little kitten on it.
It was dark outside. Cold. The wind was rustling the few leaves that still remained on the shadowy trees. She closed her eyes and pictured the cold on her skin, and the wet smell she loved about autumn. Rotting leaves, earth and wood. Frail white traces of frost on the ground in the earliest hours of morning.
She shivered and took a sip of coffee. It would warm her up from the inside, although she knew only too well that the cold she felt was a different one and no coffee, no blanket and no fire would be able to push it away.
Her gaze drifted across the wall in front of her, covered as it was with sticky-notes, hand-drawn pictures, photographs, maps and pages torn out of several books. A wall filled with thoughts and chaos. Her r

The beginning of the end
It's midday.
The sun is shining through the windows, but the room is still cold. A little bit dark.
She sits at her place, staring at the computer screen.
What an absurd and meaningless occupation in life.
You wake up every morning, prepare yourself, drive to your workplace and you're just there, fulfilling your given task. After that you return home and that was your life, only interrupted by short sequences of holidays. Other lands, other landscapes, other people – or always and every time the same.
It doesn't matter. It’s all just the same circle than the year before and in the end lingers the question if this was truly all you could expect from life, all you could make out of your life
And still she didn't break out, even after the phone call quietened her thoughts.
Yesterday they were loud and full of anger and grief.
They were so strong, stronger even than herself and still so meaningless.
Now everything is far away.
It's empty and quiet.
Just sometimes there's

Schwarze Morgensonne
Mit Träumen in den Augen bekannte Handgriffe vollführen. Eine Hand greift zur Kaffeekanne, die andere dreht bereits den Wasserhahn auf. Filterpapier wird an der vorgesehenen Linie an der Schranktür gefaltet, ohne eines Blickes gewürdigt werden.
Beim Öffnen der Kaffeedose entströmt ihr der so typisch, aromatische Duft.
Erstes Wecksignal für die Neuronen im Gehirn.
Nicht genug um aus den diffusen Halbschlaf zu erwachen, doch genug um die benötigen Löffel Kaffeepulvers im Verhältnis zum Wasser abzuzählen. Beinahe nebenbei wird der Knopf gedrückt, ein rot blinzelndes Auge und schon ist alles wieder vergessen. Der Kaffee, die Maschine und das Frühstück.
Es wird ins Bad getapst, die Stütze der Wand ist sehr geschätzt. Auch hier geschieht alles, ohne aus Träumen erwachen zu müssen.
Der Duft von Kaffee verteilt sich in der kleinen Wohnung und die Geräusche der Kaffeemaschine zeigen an, dass es bald s

Sela01's Profile Picture

Artist | Hobbyist

I'm no artist, but I like to create things. :)
If you have the time to take a look at my gallery you'll see that I write, knit and crochet. Sometimes I even draw something, but I'm not very good at it :D It doesn't matter because it's fun and I think the most important thing is, that you do what you really love. And perhaps I'll learn to do it better over time and with practice.
I'm the kind of person who gets obsessed with new things, makes them for hours without or only with little sleep and then... the things get boring for months. Or even years. Because of that I've much hobbys and interests.
A thread through my life are penguins and writing, since the beginning of my studies also coffee. I'm totally obsessed with the first one, passionate about the second and addicted to the third. Everyone who loves coffee and/or penguins is my friend! :nod:
And if you want to write a message, don't be afraid, I'm a nice person :D

What else?
You can find my (very old, german) stories about E:FC here:
My name is TaelonSela. If you like E:FC, here is more:
Most things are in german, but there are a few stories in english in the "Taelon Bibliothek".

I have a blog ( ) which I write in german and english. I post once to twice a week, because it takes time to translate everything.
And I have an account on Ravelry:
Sometimes I make my own patterns,which you can find at these places. If you have cool ideas what I could make, you can of course write me a message :) Perhaps I can make it...

Last but not least, the 100themes challenge. You see my variation below and I marked what I've finished.

Are there other interesting things about me?
Not really, but to make the profile complete: I'm from germany (so pleeeaaase excuse my bad english) and study Philosophy and Biology. I write in german and english, because some things can only be expressed in a certain language.

I'm at Instagram with the names mirroredfeather
and splintered_feather :)

I came back and then I was gone again ;)

NaNoWriMo was very interesting and it was my first time trying it. And I made it!!!
I wrote 50.008 words in one month.
But I didn't write a new book, I wrote a few scenes for the one I more or less finished. I discovered that it wasn't finished and now I've to write the whole last part anew.
The sister of my female main protagonist demanded to get a bigger part. It would only be fair, she said and important, because they are sisters and very close and family... and so on. I agreed and I wrote 2-3 additional scenes with her.
It changed everything.
My main character, which should've lead the group, is not capable of acting any more and it took me 3 chapters to get her active again. And even now she won't be able to lead the group.
I've a new character, which befriended her best friend and he's now leading the group.
Her partner however, should've stayed where he was, distrusting her and now he's on the journey with the group.
Another character I really like doesn't make sense any more and I don't know why she's even in the group!
I had to write about the parents of my main character and then two of my characters were falling in love. I didn't plan it and I for sure don't want it, one romantic relationship is enough! Obviously my protagonists thought otherwise.
I'm a little bit desperate and annoyed, but happy too. At least I got enough time and motivation to write again and I got to meet a few new great writers! :)
It was really fun, although I didn't have enough time for deviantArt.

But it's over now. However, christmas is near... ;)
