Giant
It had taken him a year to traverse the Desolate Continent, his rucksack getting smaller and smaller as his supplies ran out. He might have been able to get to his destination sooner with help, but he knew he had to make this journey alone. A clear map, a course plotted on paper, anything more concrete than the fleeting memories of the stories he'd been told as a child would have helped. But he had to make do. The world was at an impasse. No one was happy, but no one had an edge, either. His goal was to turn the tide in favor of his people. Of his history. Of the very power they once possessed. When he finally crossed the tundra and could see the skeletal remains of the giant—of the mythical force he'd spent his childhood dreaming of—even his shock that the being had been real couldn't overtake the awe of discovering an entire body. Though he was tired from his travels and exhaustion threatened to kick in, he was calculated. This one was stabbed clean through, both weapons present

The End
    Toward the end, Taku was hardly there. Physically, he was present, but Tobias didn’t know the man in front of him beyond knowing who he once was.    Tobias could tell at a glance when Taku was there and when he wasn’t. The only part of him that remained consistent was the marble eye, the cloudy gray anchor that at times seemed dull in comparison to his large personality, and at others seemed to hold his head in the realm of the living as the rest of his body tried to revolt. He’d fall into fits of rage, periods where anything and everything he could keep hold of long enough would get thrown across the room and left wher

The Nomad
    When the nomad arrived, the building inhaled. It was a slow, shuddering gasp of a breath, wind passing into the shoddy boards the same way it passed through the tattered clothes hanging limp over the nomad's frame. In the breeze, both swayed. The nomad hesitated only once before breathing out. The building exhaled with him.    When the nomad sat, kneeled solemn at the foot of the barely standing bed, the building stilled. The very air held taut, lifeless, as the nomad pressed his hands to the dusty bedsheets, fingers tracing blotched stains dried out from years of atrophy. When he took his hat from the bed stand, tapping the dust from i

my father lived in India
my father is a man of many colors. on the nights when the moon stays asleep, he lotions his palms with pomegranate juice. the sugared blood pools in the creases of his skin, staining it India’s red. sometimes, my father scrubs his hands until they are nothing but flesh & fruit rinds. when he was younger—all skinned knees and pocket knives—he must've slipped on a thousand marbles. my father’s father was a welder who rolled and spun steel into tiny spheres. when he died, my father’s hands became blue and free of pocket knives. to this day, he keeps a bag of marbles on our mantle. from time to time, he s

Found on Newest, Vol. 4
One of the most polarizing things about the Newest page I think is that there's no filter, and that it's literally just deviations right as they're submitted. This can make browsing it a very interesting experience, shall we say. Still, the bright side to browsing Newest is that you have the chance to run into a variety of good art of...well, anything and everything, really! So, here are some more great works that I've found while browsing Newest!
Virtual Romance
Hi all! I hope you're all doing well. It's been pretty quiet on the personal life front, outside of the earthquakes last week. Thankfully those didn't impact me outside of giving me a bit of a scare, but I was housesitting for my parents when they happened, and between that and the constant sound of fireworks and people rolling through the neighborhood, it was very easy to feel stressed, hahah. But, on the whole things are pretty good for now. @Heidi and I have been on the hunt for tickets to the 2020 Olympics, which has been fresh on both of our minds. Fingers crossed that all goes well on that front, but if it does then you'll definitely be hearing another update from me, haha. Did anyone watch any of the speedruns at Summer Games Done Quick? I didn't have a chance to watch them while the event was live, but I've been watching some of the videos in my free time. I don't know when I started enjoying video game speedruns, but it's fun to watch them when winding down for bed. I'm
