On an intermittent hiatus.

I've never been very good at talking about myself. But, what I can say is that everyone of us is constantly changing, growing, and learning. And so, I am as well, and the best way to get to know someone is talking to them I believe. That, or you could read all the things I've written, the things I've drawn, and maybe a few embarrassing journals as well. (If they stay up long enough that is. :lol:)

I also have a very bad and very annoying habit of embarrassing myself at almost every opportunity. ^^; :ashamed: :lol:

Though there aren't that many, audio versions for some of my writing can be found here: SoundCloud - Journal


If you've ever favourited one of my deviations, thank you ever so much. :love: It's truly appreciated. I used to thank everyone for each one but I haven't really been able to keep up with it, so here's my solution (though, if you receive a llama badge from me, it's probably as a thank you for a favourite). Also, if I end up watching you or favouriting something of yours, it's not just in return, but because I think it's worthwhile. :heart:

Here are some people you should definitely go check out. :heart: (In no particular order)

Hugh - Direction
Illenium - Fortress
Syd Matters - Obstacles
Evangeline - My Kingdom (William Black Remix)
Hellberg & Deutgen vs Splitbreed - Collide (Astronaut & Barely Alive Remix)

Some features that made me ridiculously happy. (Thank you so very much to those of you who have included my work in journal features every now and then. :love:)


CrossroadsShe's at a crossroad again.
If she recalled correctly, then this was the fourth time in her entire life. She tentatively places a foot forward, on to the cool glass. Decisions were never my strong point, she thinks. Knowing that this could take anywhere between an hour to a few days, she takes off the bulky coat, spreading it out before taking a seat in the middle of the cross-section. There weren't going to be any passers-by after all.
Wait. I've...I've never looked back.
The thought crosses her mind for less than a second, but it clutches onto the messy vines inside her head and before she can stop herself, she's turning her head around looking over her shoulder and gazing into the mist-filled street. It's murky, grey, dark, and filled with heavy rain.
Why have I never looked back?
She doesn't know if that's really a question, or if it's something she's asking herself, but she definitely finds the confusion that comes with the thought loathsome, at best. Deciding


Definite.There's no control in her movements.
It's the suggestion.
An illusory

she thinks,
from the seams of wards
around her words
a secretive glance
sent to fly
up and high
on feathers
dancing in their frailty
as they land in her hair.
Shards-her heart was attached to a string,
being tugged along day-by-day and
she thought that maybe, it's been
passed one too many times and
by the fires of every hand that's
touched the other end, even the
smallest whispers of a brush
have left the tips of her eyelashes
and the string's lying abandoned
again, in the open space that she
might as well have been blind to
there's only so many senses she
can use before they're exhausted
only so many currents of emotion
she can allow herself to drown in
before her heart and it's shell are
in shreds
hanging like glass shards-

train problems and solutionsProblem one.
You're nowhere near your room.
Problem two.
The girl next to you is incessant in her chatter of 'Oh my god, so like-'.
You quickly drown this out, and fish around the various objects in your purse for your headphones, hoping that you didn't leave them on your desk this morning.
You feel an urge to roll your eyes and sink further into your seat in the corner, forcing enough control on yourself to not slap her silly.
You were cranky.
Problem three.
You're pretty sure that guy in the corner was staring at you a moment ago. To make matters worse, it was through your reflection on the window next to you.
This became horribly apparent when you saw him repeating the motions when you reached the beginning of the tunnel, the sound of your music being drowned out by the noise of the train.
You picture yourself shooing him away, finding the glances all too uncomfortable.
A little creepy too.
Problem four.
There were no other problems, but you were hoping t
Driven by DesolationThe... being stands with its back to her, and she can feel a slight breeze coming from what she knew to be the puzzle pieces it was made from. They moved, rotating every now and then, while maintaining their human like figure, and the pieces showed their various shades of black. As if telling her that this shouldn't be possible. That this thing shouldn't be possible.
But she takes its hand anyway.
The figure doesn't reply, and she doesn't see it, but she knows it turned its head, looking over her shoulder and to the ground in the distance.
"Was all this, really worth it."
There's pain forming in her throat, and somewhere near her heart, because of the implication.
"I...don't know."
"Is this all, because of you?" The puzzle pieces of what looked to be a shadow like arm gestured to the burning city around them, flames searing up towards the dark sky.
She's frightened, because she doesn't know. She isn't sure, and she can't remember.
"I..." Her voice breaks, and she t

Just wanted to thank you for the fave!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in listening/sharing my music?

If you are, I can link you to where you can find that stuff!
