A Thin Thread...
"There's a thin line between love and hate".
I don't often listen to the ramblings of humans. Their fragile, arrogant lives hold little meaning for me; they are not worth extinguishing for life does it soon enough in the end. However, those words could not be closer to the truth. Hate is easy to feel; this world is a diseased place, ugly, selfish creatures hiding under false physical beauty and carefully constructed smiles. It's repulsive, watching them flaunt their pretty little lies while others fall headlong into the web of deceit. Yet it takes so little to unravel those thin intricate threads...a simple cut here, a warning slash there. Then the mask falls, and reveals the truth.
And what of love? I know nothing of this emotion. After my father got himself killed and my mother showed her true face and abandoned the clan, I saw what this world truly is. The clan didn't blame me; they didn't accept me either. I was alone, can't admit I felt lonely. I didn't want their sympathies anyho

The Dark
   I had never really know what fear was. It was just an emotion. An emotion that other people felt, not me. I knew what it was like to be shocked or creeped out, but I had never been able to label that as fear. Fear was something completely different it wasn’t something you felt when your friend jump out from behind a wall, or when you read a scary story. That wasn’t fear and I knew it.
   I had never been truly afraid. So afraid that my body stopped moving. So afraid that the world seemed to be crumbling around me. So afraid that my mind saw insanity as an escape. No- I had never felt that fear. It was alien to me, when my friends yelled, “stop, that scared me!” I could never relate, I could only assume it was a lie. Who would be scared of a spider it was so small and frail. Who would be scared of story told by a little kid behind the bathrooms. Who would be scared of the supernatural, something that didn’t even exist. Or else that's

The Nightmare Inside Me
It's inside me... I feel it.
It wants to come out, to become reality.
It wants to ruin my life also when the sun is up. 
It is there, pushing on my  temples, trying to break out and gain freedom.
But I can't, I can't let it.
I can't let it ruin me.
Dreams become nightmares in a matter of seconds, everytime I close my eyes.
Oh. The shadow is moving, spreading out, fast.
It is there, it's watching me, observing me, staring at me with those unreal eyes.
It as no face or body.
But I know that it's listening, I know that is following every movement I do.
I can feel it.
Ahahah, exhilarating.
At the end, it seems that it really has won.
Maybe it's better to put an end to all of this.
I will die in glory, as the old classic heroes.
I won't give myself up to the enemy or...
Is the enemy that should give itself up to me
It's time to write a new myth.
My myth.
The myth of the one who has menaged to defeat her own nightmares.
The gun is there, on the bedside table.

Night Watch
    Keith carefully set up the tripod in the corner so that the camera had a view of the whole room, and turned it on. He bent over the lens and waved his hand. "Alright! On and recording. Okay! So! Um. I think something's haunting me. I mean, there's cold spots all over, and I swear that I'm not moving things that have moved. And something's watching me. So I'm setting this up so that I can prove it. Ghost appear on night vision, right? That's what always happens in those movies." The teen stepped back from the camera. "It's about sunset now, 6:34. Ish. So." He looked around. "It's going to be a long night, isn't it?"
    He settled down on one of the few pieces of furniture, a low couch set against the wall, and pulled out a book. "Just relax. Nothing's going to happen except what's been happening." Keith glanced back up at the camera. "Is it weird to narrate what I'm doing, just because I'm filming it? That's normal, right?" He shook his head, and looked back at

I've always wanted my drawings to look as realistic as I can.
I am not a professional, I am a hobbyist, but I do offer to draw others for experience and feedback.
Blending my drawings seemed to be a important part of realism but doing it with my finger seemed to be hard and the results weren't satisfying.
Blending with my finger resulted with smudges and spots darker then others.
I came across blending stumps and decided to give it a try.
I don't know how a actual blending stump works because I made my own which is great .
All you need to make a blending stump is a rolled up piece of paper.
My opinion is that I much rather prefer blending stumps over my finger.Blending stumps  by charcolized
