_________________________

The trait of honesty wears heavy upon those who have been tasked to maintain it.
Honesty is an ugly business sometimes. It's not for those who wish to make a living on a get rich quick
scheme selling snake oil to grannies. It's not for those who can't tell a close friend when they are being really
rotten. It's especially not for those assigned to guard the door to protect the secret of a surprise party.
Honesty takes strength, wisdom, and a bit of bravery to dive in and take the heat for the sanctity of
preserving truth. A blanket affirmation of honesty encompasses a character exhibiting far more exemplary
traits beyond it.

Honesty is rough,

But honesty is a necessity.

It can burn to say what needs to be said...

...But facing the heat of ugliness head-on is the best way to endure a harsh truth.

The lava making for the red of the apples... "enduring" the heat... so masterfully done! :D
Wow, yes, so true! (the description) And I especially know that as a Persona-user ^.^ (let's see who gets that...)

This is the best one by far. One of my favourites from the series, the other being Aspire. The volcanic connotations here are amazing with hints of Changeling green on the stone ceiling. This is very down to Earth - literally. Excellent use of lighting and character placement. Well done /)

I love the picture, and the description is very eye-opening, although the description is kind of ruined by this poorly written sentence.

"It's not for those who must can't a close friend when they are being really rotten."

The rest is fantastic, but I have no idea what this sentence is supposed to be saying. I would very much appreciate a bit of editing on this one sentence.
