My Protest
My Protest
A painful prick upon the skin.
A small white bump appears.
Fingernails ignore a mother's warning,
traversing rapidly to and fro'
across the itching epidermis.
White turns to red.
Bump turns to lump.
A tiny black dot
crawls across an ivory sea of skin.
This dot must be exterminated
at any cost.
Breeding must not be allowed.
Evil incarnate walks the earth
in the form of a tiny black dot.
To Hell! To Hell, I say!
get thee down to the fiery depths!
And bite me no more.

The Glory Box -- Excerpt
Excerpt from
The Glory Box: In Sorrow and In Joy
May 29, 1889
Dust swirled lazily across the empty street. Elizabeth Barrett coughed lightly into her mother's powder blue handkerchief and shuffled her pointy-toed boots as she made her way down Main Street, headed for Roark Park to enjoy the afternoon with her friend, Harrison Tyler. A good majority of her friends had already left town, their fathers giving up on the dwindling mining operation and eagerly seeking permanent employment elsewhere. The Tylers, however, had remained behind, for which Elizabeth was indescribably grateful, because their son was her best friend in this small, lonely mining village.
Elizabeth crossed the intersection of Cave Street, not even bothering to look both ways before she navigated across. On any normal Wednesday in Marmaros, the streets would be quite bare, but now that her home was becoming a bit of a ghost town, the streets were eerily empty, with not even the sign of a pet cat or dog sniffing

Well, I suppose the editor could still be sleeping. But she said she'd get back to me.
On to my next story then, I suppose.
Hmmm... My coffee smells divine at this hour of the morning. I wonder where it's from.
Ah, the bag says Columbia. I wonder what Columbia is like in the morning.
My best friend, Google. Oh, here we go.
Very interesting. I bet there's a video for that. Off to YouTube!
Hahaha! That was great! Never thought a human being could be so flexible!
Flexible humans. Now there's a good story idea.
Bring up Wikipedia.
Gymnast. No, wait, not a gymnast; too cliché. How about a tried and true human contortionist? In a circus!
Circuses. I bet they're just as noisy and smelly as they are portrayed in movies. Back to YouTube; wonder if anyone has a home video from a circus.
Lah-dee-dah-dee-dah... Not finding any-
Oh my god. Someone's at the door! What time is it? One o'clock. Damn, must be th

How long have you been on DeviantArt?
I've been here 11 years

What does your username mean?
It's my name; I use it for any site where I post things created by me.

Describe yourself in three words.
Intelligent, creative, spacey

Are you left or right handed?

What was your first deviation?
Captain Jack Sparrow by rjoyhelvie

What is your favourite type of art to create?
Probably pencil portraits, though I also really enjoy drawing costume ideas for my novels

If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
Digital coloring

What was your first favourite?
Drawing of Russell Thayer by arminmersmann

What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
Oh man, I have so many favorites, there probably isn't anything that is favorited more than anything else. Fan art and cosplay, though, tend to be big hits for me. :-)

Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
I have SO many favorites, but one of the artists I've been following the longest and on the most social media platforms is briannacherrygarcia

If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
Probably briannacherrygarcia

How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
SummerRayn became a friend, and then a roommate, and then like a sister. She taught me how to not care if other people are judging the way I look or act. I haven't seen her in two years, but thank god for Tumblr and Facebook and DeviantArt, because I don't know how I could stay in such close touch without such sites!

What are your preferred tools to create art?
Pencils, though I really wanna learn and get better at using my Wacom tablet.

What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
Well, writing-wise, somewhere quiet but with friends; NaNoWriMo write-ins are SO helpful in motivation!

What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
Nothing precise comes to mind. Mostly I just love it when I get favorites, and especially comments, since I've not uploaded anything new in a long time and I personally don't think I'm all that great of an artist compared to so many others, so it's always a boost to my confidence when I get comments on any of my pieces.
