Character Prose Sketch: Emily
It was the sort of day that I hated the most. The sort of days that creeps up on you, then announces its presence with bullhorns and buzzers and floodlights, then drops responsibilities on your lap like a jilted lover her prom baby on her cheating boyfriend. I hated those days with a fevor that many question. Even the day's name is grating to the ears.
Monday. What a pathetic name.
So I walked into the precinct as usual, the taste of last night's bar-hopping-at-home session lingering in my mouth, tasting like I had eaten an ash tray. Swinging by the mail room proved fruitless. Detectives like me don't get summons, the department wants a mor

Talon Character Snippet
Talon Lardner bit his tongue, deep in thought as he fiddles through his homework in the public library. From the distance, he looks quite shaggy, with his black hair unkempt but not completely unpresentable, his hoodie strings uneven, hood like a lump on his back.

Yes, yes, I know, I'm really late at drawing, but I do plan on catching up... it's just that I have been putting out most of my creative outing on Second Life... I wonder if I can show my work from there on here....
P.S. How in the world does one post someone's Icon in a post?
