Before and After. Then and Now.

Before and After. Then and Now.

Before and after. Then and now. These are words people always use to describe life. But I have never found much difference between the two. If you asked why, I could hardly tell you, except that I found both to be very much the same. Whether this was due to the stagnant nature of my being or some other mysterious reason, I doubt I'd ever be able to say. They were simply words that never lent themselves to proper descriptions. You may compare the change between then and now and view it as before and after. However this is a description and conclusion only understandable by you. Not me, never me. You see I do not change, no matter how much tim

Blaze

The fire flickered in front of her. A blaze that somehow managed to warm her from inside out. Sitting there, she could almost imagine that things had gone well. That she had not been thrown aside, that she was not a replaceable object. She breathed in the smell of burning wood and smoke, a scent that took her back, back to a time when things had been simpler, more enjoyable. But that was far too long ago and she was sitting in front of this blaze by herself, her only company the buzzing insects and distant trees. Her friends had been right, she had needed to get out of the house. Taking another deep breath of the ashes and smoke she closed

As Ellie gazed out the window, watching the trees sway in the breeze, she couldn't help but think of him. The years had passed much faster than she had expected and if it hadn't been for her class distracting her, she would have realised that the four year mark had just passed. Ellie drew her legs to her chest, trying to ignore the ache she felt when she thought of his death. Four years should have been enough time to grieve, yet still she could not stop. She hadn't even known him for a year when it happened but they had grown so close so fast that it still felt as though she had lost a lifelong friend. It was these feelings that made her s

Decisions

Reminiscing about the past wasn't something that May enjoyed doing, but as she folded her clothes into a suitcase, her mind couldn't help but wander, in an attempt to pinpoint where it had all gone wrong. She had firmly believed that Ash was the man that she had been looking for her whole life, but even now as separation was confirmed, all May could feel was regret at the loss of one of their firm friendship. That, she thought, had been the problem, because even now a flash of green hair would pass through her mind's eye and her heart would ache at the memory of her first love and how she had let it slip through her fingers.

Hoop

Hoop

She stared at the hoop she grasped in her hand, light glinting off the glitter that adorned it. Taking a deep breath she threw the hoop high into the air. She watched as the hoop spun, sparkling in the sunlight. It was brand new, no dirt or scratches present but as she caught it in her hand again she knew that wouldn't last.

Plans

Plans

They were always making plans. For where they would go, for what they would see. But there were some things that just could not be planned for. Some things that just threw everything out and meant you needed to start from scratch. It was these chaotic things they lived for, whether they knew it or not.

With the sun barely in the sky, many of the locals were still fast asleep in bed. However this could not last for long as a cheerful voice echoed through the streets. "Come on Kel! We're behind schedule already!" Kelandra sighed as she heard her best friend's voice coming from near the front door and Elysia's haste to leave soon filtered through her mind. She knew the reason why they always left so early for the markets, but sometimes she questioned her friend's enthusiasm. Then again Elysia was the baker's youngest daughter and had probably been getting up before dawn since she could barely walk. Hearing a knock on her bedroom door, Kelan

The hills stretched out before her, their magnificent mottled green seeming to go on forever. If she hadn't known better she would've thought that nothing would interfere with such a view. However even from here she could spot the roads, although few, criss-crossing amongst the green, much like badly healed scars.

Study

The door creaked as she entered the room. Looking around she could only assume this had once been a study. There was a large wooden desk with papers piled on it and others scattered on the floor. A few crunched beneath her feet as she moved towards the desk. Who had worked here she wondered and where had they gone?

Sad brown eyes stared back, the flecks of green mocking, shouting out her differences. The rumours were floating around the village again. 'There's no way she's his daughter.' '...probably a bastard, poor girl...' 'Mother's obviously been bedding other men...men who aren't human...' The words echoed round and round in her head. Even though she knew there was no truth in the words that were said, it still hurt to see her mother seem to shrink ever so slightly under the gaze of the other villagers. She threw a pebble an

Exams almost over!

Exams almost over!

Hey all! One: I'm finally working through the deviations that have built up on my watch list over the past year+ o_o; Just haven't had the time or the effort to look through them until now, so if you've suddenly received a mass of +favs from me that's why ^^; Two: Prompts seem to be working for me :3 so writing is sloooowly coming back and therefore decided to attempt Nano again this year, but with exams in November haven't gone past 3k so pretty much given up on that for this year. However it did motivate me to start a long story so may post some of that up here at one point or another :D Three: Got my last exam on Monday :D which means I

Prompts =

Finally attempting to get back into writing! I've been pretty much stuck since my last journal entry here =/ dunno how or why but my confidence in writing just kinda up and vanished :( so am now using prompts to help build that confidence back up :D especially by using sites that give you a time limit, e.g. 60 seconds. Having that time limit is surprisingly useful, it stops me questioning my ability :3 Weeeell here's to hoping the two random short pieces I just submitted are just the start of many! Fingers crossed!

Writer's block over? =O

Writer's block over? =O

I think my writer's block is finally over x3 I still can't believe that its taken me till APRIL to write more than a sentence! To be honest it was kinda depressing not being able to write -.- but oh well fingers crossed its over now! I've written a couple of things from one word prompts, most only two paragraphs long, I'll maybe post one up every couple of days or so, simply because I haven't posted anything up for way too long! I doubt it'll be of any decent quality but hey at least its something! :D Awesome Groups %Pharaoh-Atemu (https://www.deviantart.com/pharaoh-atemu) :iconkai-shrine: :iconKaiHiwatariLovers: :iconOriginalBeyblade: :iconOC-x-Canon:
