Dead Night Chapter 3 Unwelcome Relations
   Where I didn’t believe in jumping to conclusions, Avangelene’s note was enough to convince me that I wouldn’t like what I would find when I got back to the Guild. I was even sure her being absent from the place was on purpose. So, I decided I was always better safe than sorry, and went to retrieve my most prized swords from upstairs.
   The katanas had come into my possession during the brief years I had been running amok in Japan. I liked to call them Scylla and Charybdis, after the legend, since we have this silly tradition about naming our weapons. The two evils, one to kill Vampires, one for Shifters…for when the rapier was just a little too mundane.
   They were a little more difficult to hide, but with a longer cape and my specially designed holster, I managed it just fine, and went on my way.
   I tried in vain not to let the huge gates clang loudly as I shut them behind me. I had to remove a great deal of

Chapter 1
   I am not a superhero.
   At least…I’m not like the superheroes I read about in comic books as a kid. I’m not a moral warrior like Batman, or a god on earth like Thor. I’m not super strong or bad ass by nature with cool powers…what I do have however, is a messed up life, so I guess I’m half way there.
   I started writing all this down thinking I needed, like any good comic hero, an origin story…but that’s when I realised; I’m not a hero, I’m a lab rat. This isn’t a comic, it’s brutal, pain-in-the-ass reality.  Though to be honest, I think I prefer it that way. I can’t explain why, but I guess it’s best put like this: even Tony Stark started out as a dork with a stupid idea and a bad hand in life.
   So, this is my origin. It’s not impressive, but it’s not boring either. It is what it is, and I like to think I made my mistakes, but I d

Imogen (Immy) Ilsabeth Laverick
Artist | Student | Varied
United Kingdom
Miss I. I. Laverick resides in the completely glamorous land of the West Midlands and considers herself ‘abandoned in this godforsaken era where people do not dress properly’, with a glitchy time travelling watch and a constant supply of tea. Miss Laverick is usually found in the local tea shop or book shop, and can be identified by her most outrageous (but clearly shameless) sense of style.

While her day job is studying to become a theatre costumier, her hobbies include historical mystery solving, collecting more books than she can humanly read and being frankly irritating about literature. She prides herself most in being wanted dead or alive by seven monarchs, ten Lords and a Count.

So I know I'm nowhere near as active as I used to be. That's largely the fault of University and theatre and basically all of the extra stuff I'm trying to do to kickstart my career and build my portfolio, I hope you understand. I've been involved with like four shows this year, it's mad stuff.
I've been on this site for like 8 years. I was here when I wrote terrible fanfiction and drew loads of art for a webcomic that never made it past chapter one. I'm never going to properly leave.

See the other reason I don't come back that much is that it's gone really dead here. You noticed too right? I'm dropping back in mostly for about five people when I come back to answer my messages and check on things. And it makes me kind of sad- a lot of friends I've made over the years have gone and drifted off. Everyone appears to be moving to patreon or instagram etc. It feels like a ghost town.

Maybe it's because I only keep a a small circle of dA friends, but I'm not the kind of person who really goes out of my way to introduce myself to everybody...but I do feel like, where this place was once a hive of activity, it's just a hollow shell now.

Either way, I'm going to persist. Coming back here reminds me of being younger and just starting out on my art journey. It reminds me of how far I've come, and of course, allows me to speak with some of the amazing people who've helped me get there.

But I hope the quietness is a phase. It's really rather sad to watch.

Anyway, I hope all of my friends here are well. Thank you to all of you who are patient with me and also support my work on other platforms. Love you guys.
