The Shadow of a Winged OneIn the darkness I wander,The Shadow of a Winged One by Starbrite234
For what purpose exactly....
Why it is rather somber,
For these reasons are rather deadly.
Light provides no cover of stealth,
thus it serves no aid for plans made.
It is more of a case of wavering health,
Truth be told...in its presence I might fade.
For thou has no infliction,
of person or otherwise.
It embitters me in addition,
that you move to condemn me with lies.
For the night is mine, and the day your course,
A sinner am I, hidden in the shadow of thine’s tainted force.

interwoven in the arteries of the heart of Frankfurt.
They are as commonplace as the people,
who sit in the cafes alongside the cobblestone roads;
Venturing about talk and gossip,
as the clicks and turns go about,
whilst the sounds of the world around them meld to become music.
Vati said once,
that a century of grandfather clocks lie silent in Römerberg.
Waiting with thin hands until the strike of noon,
to sing a symphony of beautiful metallic sound.
Those where the rare few sentences uttered that day,
that were clean of irritation,
and raw with intelligence and passion.
He also said that similarly,
I was his and Mutti’s cacophony;
a senseless melody of childish whims and loud laughter.
Mutti told us not to run late,
early in the morn of Monday,
as his lips met her proper cheek.
We whisked out the door into the brass and metal city,
as her small hands touched the warmth he had left behind.

I stare vacantly at the rusting washing machine. Mother said it had been a gift from a former job where she had to clean houses for a living without a care for all the back breaking work she’s been giving.
I organize the lights and darks and colors and think about the generations of Mexican women before me who have done the same mundane and dull task in their households with no hope for anything more out of their lives.
I don’t consider myself a girl or a boy. But my religion considers that unknown territory that I shouldn’t venture into or find a denture into.
Just like the unknown territory of loving another girl deeply from the reaches of my emotional heart and not from my primitive bodily desire. But social normality considers that unknown territory that I shouldn’t venture into as well.
I gather the remaining clothes and trip on the garage floor, which is littered like the scene of a gunfight, like the scarre

flicks through slides
of dead Jews
their xylophone ribcages,
trench stomachs, and
mouth hanging open
I feel pinholes poked
into my chest;
my soul pours
out and out and out.
I look towards the others,
and their moon faces
reflect my own
like thirty mirrors
staring back at me:
emptying and sorrowful.
Our thoughts are the same:
these bodies are people,
and people killed them,
and other people let them
kill and be killed.
People and people and people.
The bell rings,
and we shuffle papers
and click pens.
It is done,

Project Educate: Lit Publishing WeekPublishing Week
Welcome to Publishing Week hosted by CRLiterature and projecteducate!
What can I expect from this week?
This week we'll be delving into the depths of literature publishing. :iconwooooplz: Oooooh, spooky and scary stuff, right? Not really. Okay. Well, maybe a little, but we'll help make it less so! We'll tackle everything from general resources to what it's like to be on the publisher's side of things. Here is a handy dandy schedule ( NOW WITH LINKS):

10 Reasons to ALWAYS Read Submission Guidelines by SadisticIceCream
do not marry a writer.do not marry a writer.
their only love is a pen,
or weapon of choice.
their only home is the mind.
do not marry a writer.
they will leave you for hours,
lost in different worlds.
pulling them out is like waking a sleepwalker.
they will never live the same moment again.
thoughts are lightning quick,
and will never strike the same place more than once.
marry a writer.
only if you want your body
transformed into words.
do not marry a writer.
if you are a flower
requiring constant watering.
you will die, and we will turn your ashes into l e t t e r s.
but marry a writer,
if you want to live forever.
never become a writeri.never become a writer.
you will become a perfectionist,
picking life apart
with a magpie's eye,
hunting for the beautiful bits
until you can make yourself
a sparkling throne
in the center of a junkyard.
ii.you will write when you're sad.
you will write when you're happy.
whenever you feel something,
you will vomit the emotion out
into some sort of literature.
when you're finished,
you'll be empty
and surrounded by
pages and pages of
everything you once were.
iii.you will try to make
pain sound delicious,
painting over the ragged wounds
with pink paint
and candy-coat lies.
you will learn
how to decorate graveyards.
everyone will play in them,
but you alone will see the headstones.
iv.if you fall in love,
you will turn your love into a poem,
and you will always like your own words
more than you like the real person.
you'll become so selfish
you'll disgust yourself,
but you will not be ab
She's a WriterShe sits at her desk
Her headphones in,
The world shut out.
She bleeds for others
As words fly from
Her mind to her fingertips.
She stares at the screen,
At every little comment,
The good and the painful.
She forms her emotions
Into books and poems
To throw away the hurt.
She's a writer,
And her best weapons
Are her mind and her pen.
How You Met Hetalia (small meme)Alright. This is the first time I've ever started a meme, please go easy on me. But I was inspired by
M-arukaite-chikyuu's journal entry. Tag people you know love Hetalia. Post this meme on tumblr, I don't care have fun kiddies and spread the love! This is just out of my curiosity to see what my fellow fans feel about Hetalia, and I will happily read all of your answers, no matter what!
There are no rules! Do it if you'd like to or don't do it all you have to do is just answer the questions and tag any Hetalians you know! ^ ^
Here's the blank questions:
First query: From where/who/what did you realize Hetalia existed?
Second query: What was your first impression of the first episode. (Yes, that first episode, the voice actor's voices blending in and overlapping, and general havoc-wrecking and what say you)
Third query: Did you like, love or hate it at first and why?
Fourth query: Before discovering how sentimental the fanworks and fan int
Are you on the right track? + Fuck Talent!Am I on the right track?
This is a thing people often wonder and think it's a complicated to find out, but it is actually pretty simple. It's a different question you need to ask yourself based on different topics.
As for: Fuck talent! You'll find it if you scroll down
Topic 1: Am I on the right track to becoming a better artist?
Does your work from today, look closer to your initial goal than your work from last week? (this needs to be both in skill and idea.)
Good skills: Honing your technique, training you muscle memory, being more knowledgeable about your tools and art rules. With art rules I mean: Perspective, form, light, texture, composition.
Good ideas: Storytelling, characteristics, charm, emotion and design. Not just making things look polished but also convey something more, something that brings it to life and speaks to pe

Are you a Yaoi or a Yuri fan?:
You think boys from animes are:
Either they are precious cinnamon rolls too good and pure for this world or they are tsundere @$$holes.
You think girls from animes are:
Either really badass, really moe, or really random. Very few are unique, but they are appreciated.
What characteristics does a girly anime boy have, in your opinion?
They like to st-st-stutter, they look away when they're blushing, and scratch their cheek with one finger.
What characteristics does a tomboy anime girl have, in your opinion?
Pulling a roundhouse kick out of nowhere. (No training required) Or disobeying the laws of physics, or being huge pranksters.
Princess Tutu and XXXHolic
They are no ordinary anime. They are brilliant treasures.
