Tess 15: Trials and Tribulations

Starling City Hall, April 20, 2000, noon Leonard wasn't sure what to expect from meeting with the District Attorney, but whatever it was, this wasn't it. First there had been Quentin's warning when he'd come by to escort Leonard to one of the jail's shower rooms. The room in question was private, intended to allow former inmates to clean up when they were released, unlike the larger shower room used on a daily basis by the jail's current residents, but Leonard was under no allusions about his impending freedom. He still needed to persuade the DA and a judge to go along with their plan before he could officially be released; even assuming su

Tess 14: Help Wanted

Starling City, April 18, 2000, 11:45 pm Tess shot upright in bed, gasping and clutching her stomach. Harrison stirred at the unexpected movement. "You okay?" he murmured. He reached out to caress her stomach. "Kicking already?" Tess shook her head. "I think it's too early for that," she replied. "Hormones and cramps, that's all. I'll be fine in a minute." But the sensation was far more precise than any cramp she'd ever experienced, and it felt so cold that it burned. It felt like someone had just taken a knife and started carving into her. Exactly like had happened to Leonard a few weeks ago... and would happen again if he went back to pr

Stargazing

Outskirts of Starling City "Getting late," Harrison said. "Anything else you'd like to do, my dear?" Tess rolled her eyes at the question. As if he hadn't known the answer when he'd brought her out here. As if he hadn't wanted to do the same thing. "I don't mind stargazing on the beach," she replied. "You and your stargazing," Harrison muttered. "I thought you said I was the only star you see." Tess turned away to hide her grin. "Doctor Harrison Wells, you can't honestly tell me you're jealous of the night sky, can you?" "Jealous?" he echoed. "Me? Impossible. I don't know the meaning of the word." He chuckled, and Tess turned to see a g

Tess 13: Return to the Scene of the Crime

Amber's Lair, April 18, 10 am Leonard peered around at his companions, but Mick and Lisa were focused on their meals and Amber and John were engrossed in their reading. That they were even in the same room with him would make things difficult, but it might be a long time before he caught all of them occupied again. Longer still if Lewis ever stopped hiding from the police. It's now or never. He took his empty dishes to the kitchen and returned to snatch his jacket from the back of his chair. He barely made it three steps with the jacket before Lisa looked up from her own breakfast. "Where are you going?" she asked. Leonard tried not to wi

"So glad I could finally reach you," Amber said when someone finally answered the phone. "I've been busy, luv," John Constantine protested. "I've never known demons to book an appointment." Amber snorted. "Wouldn't that be a sight to see?" "You're still planning to go through with it?" John asked. "Desperate times call for desperate measures," Amber replied. "Isn't that how the saying goes? You know what I'm up against, you know my limitations." "Jack of all trades, master of none," John recited. "Not to mention that pesky little detail about needing consent so your spells don't go bonkers on ya. Shame about that last; I bet you'd make a

Tess 11: Burden of Proof

Amber's Lair, April 7, 2000, 2:15 am Lisa had spent the last hour weeping into a pillow, muffling her cries so that she wouldn't alert anyone to her misery, until an odd sound caught her attention and dragged her downstairs to investigate. Judging from the soft glow and the sound of clacking keys, she wasn't the only one who found sleep elusive tonight. And judging from the snores coming from the couch, Mick experienced no such difficulty. At least someone can sleep right now. "What are you doing?" Lisa whispered to Amber. She told herself she was being quiet to avoid waking Mick, but in truth she was so hoarse from crying that she doubted

Tess 10: The Message

Iron Heights Penitentiary courtyard, April 5, 2000 "Snart!" the warden called. "Get over here!" Leonard tossed the basketball to one of the other inmates and jogged over to the fence. "Yeah, boss?" The warden scowled and feinted a punch. Leonard flinched despite the obvious barrier between them, though the other man's reaction was hardly unexpected. The warden had never liked him, no matter how well he tried to behave. Not that he expected to make friends at a place like Iron Heights, certainly not among the guards, though thankfully they weren't all as abusive as Lewis's stories had claimed. But he'd assumed—and assumed wrong̵

Tess 09: Cover Up

Central City, March 30, 2000 Ben peered at his watch under the starlight, but the hour hand still pointed to eleven. He sighed; being an hour early usually meant extra time to prepare, but Leonard was such a stickler for numbers that even an extra minute could throw off the game. But Leonard wasn't here. He was still in prison after that last job got screwed up. After he'd walked away. That was why Ben had to be here. He unlocked the safe house and walked in. "Hey, Micky!" he called out. "You in here?" "Where else would I be?" Mick's grumble came from the dining room. Ben followed his voice and found him nursing a bottle of beer. It was

Tess 08: Plan Z

CRASH! Leonard jolted awake as shards of glass, wet and stinking of cheap beer, rained down on top of him. His eyes darted around as he searched every shadow for whoever had thrown the bottle. When he caught sight of Lewis, he shrank against the wall. "D-dad?" he stammered. He glanced out the window. Midday. "Wh-what are you d-doing here so s-soon?" Even if Lewis had been speeding the whole way, he shouldn't be back in town until evening! "I could ask you the same thing," Lewis replied. "Ben said you were sick?" Leonard jerked his head in a nod. "He said... since the job V-Vincent gave me was d-done, I should try to... to get h-home." He

Starling City University, March 15, 2000, 11:35 pm Lewis glanced around at the handful of people Ben had gathered. "Party started already, and no Leonard. Guess there really is a first time for everything." "I've told you already, he's sick," Ben replied. "It's inconvenient, it happens, suck it up. Unless you think you can't handle the job without him?" "Of course I can handle it," Lewis growled. "Though why I'm stuck out here taking orders from daddy's spoiled little brat when I should be in Central City...." Ben shook his head. "Nah, you've got it all wrong," a familiar voice said. "See, if he was just a spoiled brat, that would've bee

Never put down your work

Never put down your work

Ever see a piece of artwork that just blows your mind? It's incredible, and it looks like it was painted it just a few strokes. Yet it somehow captures the essence of the subject in a way you've never thought about before. Then you read the description. And the artist says something like, "I whipped this up in five minutes. It's not very good and I hate it. I'll probably take it down later." And you feel let down, because YOU liked it. But the artist knows better than you, right? And it must be crap, somehow. So you go away slightly offended without knowing why. Dean Wesley Smith talks about this in a blog post called No One Cares. He's ta

I. AM. A. DIRTY. TRACER.

There! I trace. I use puppets for Past Sins. I'm a dirty tracer who doesn't have the patience to hand-draw each and every panel. If you want to know how I use the puppets (cause I don’t own flash): – I screenshotted every angle (front, 3/4, side, behind 3/4 and back) – I trace over the body line of the circle of the head and the body – I copy/paste those traced lines over the sketch I made – I start to puzzle everything together. I need to make the legs in a pose myself, I need to edit the mouth, ears, and eyes. Mouth, ears and eyes I had to make myself cuz I didn’t trace those. – I add a mane

Book piracy

Book piracy

Last week, a popular YA author Maggie Stiefvater posted this story on her blog. She essentially did a test to see exactly how much damage piracy was doing to her book sales. Her story has erupted into debate across the authorsphere, because her results are hard to argue with. But they’re also extremely interesting. Here is the short version:   I’ve decided to tell you guys a story about piracy. I didn’t think I had much to add to the piracy commentary I made yesterday, but after seeing some of the replies to it, I decided it’s time for this story. Here are a few things we should get clear before I go on: 1) This is

hi i'm rainy and i'm kinda pissed off so i just got this lovely comment this morning: now i'm not making this post to start drama with this person because it's not worth my time, but i did want to address this issue with everyone because i feel like this needs to be said i don't have time to reply to each and every person who comments. that's a fact. it might be hard to believe but i have a life outside of the internet and other things occupy my time aside from checking deviantart every 5 minutes, especially now that i'm 18 and need to figure out and prepare for college and living on my own. there was once a time when i was younger and had

My characters surprise me constantly. My characters are like my friends - I can give them advice, but they don't have to take it. If your characters are real, then they surprise you, just like real people. ~Laurell K. Hamilton
I need this on a stamp. Or my own version: "My characters are like my (best) friends; I think I know them well, but I don't know everything. They still find ways to surprise me."
Case in point: my tendency to change character bios well after the fact. I try to avoid physical changes (those bios exist as much for the hope of commissioning pictures as for readers' reference), but changes will occur.

But here is the question: What would you say are some of the biggest lies of our time.... albeit without bringing politics into the equation? (So leave your MAGA and similar ideologies at the door.) And why do you think it's a lie? Me, I think there are a few specific lies that need to be on that list. "The check's in the mail" seems to be a famous one. (Though sometimes the
