Wall of Shadow: Part 1Wall of Shadow: Part 1 by thwackcrackers
Shien's head swam as she recalled the final moments she had with Shadow. Those memories poked and prodded at her subconscious like an abusive cow herder. The Spire was quiet of life. All had retired to their respected quarters; dragon, human, elf, and kin-ar alike. She stood, frozen in dismay in the middle of the dormitory's communion room. The soft cracks and pops of the lit hearth nearly drowned out her own labored breathing.
"Dammit, Shadow, why do you insist on fighting this war alone?!"
The assassin offered his reprisal in the form of deafening silence, an all-too-common response from the garbed man. Shien's balled fists slowly began to blanch with a sickening white. She quickly bridged the gab between herself and Shadow, her words slipping free in a violent growl.
"We all grieve over Auraa's death, but venturing out to wage a one-man-war against the Felcry is not the answer! If you go then the Planar will order me to hunt you down, and return you here wit
The kingdomMy land stretches valleys aheadThe kingdom by Mrs-Freestar-Bul
And dies at the bottom of seven mountains
Be ware of the wolves; guardians of the riverbed
The black army stands with thunder in their hands
Pride blasts under the great steady hooves
Fearless hearts, warriors of our homelands
Our bread is mud, amber and row silver
And with every rain drop, falls a young star
Grows in all the palm trees, in every man's liver
A Ramble To A RoarSeconds do not feel like seconds any moreA Ramble To A Roar by Rifle1980
Minutes seem shorter than they did when I was young
Years pass by without much ever happening
Nothing is right but then again nothing is wrong
Maybe that could be the problem
That life’s slowly passing me by
I walk around with my shoulders arched
Like I’m afraid to even try
Yes, I’m certain that’s the problem
I’m too scared to stop asking why
Do things come so easily to others
That to me so far have been denied
The air does not feel like air any more
Each breath feels like it is racing my heartbeat
I wonder sometimes which one will prevail
The air in my lungs or the fight in me
Maybe that’s always been the problem
My mind has long since been my alibi
Convincing myself I am okay
When I am clearly struggling to survive
Yes, I understand that’s the problem
I speak to myself without reply
I could ramble on past forever
If I stop I might just crumble and cry
Words do not feel much like wo
A Doe Beneath A Willow Tree Rachel sat quietly in the van as it bumped along the underused dirt road, her seat belt having rubbed her dark skin raw hours ago. Tristan lay in the car seat next to her, sound asleep. She knew if she woke him, the drive would be even more unbearable, for both her and her parents. Nonetheless, her throat itched and pleaded for relief. Though someone older may think it to be an exaggeration, the young girl wouldn't be surprised if it were dryer than the desert.A Doe Beneath A Willow Tree by TruthisTruth
"Ma, I'm thirsty." She whispered to make sure her brother stayed asleep, though part of her knew she couldn't have been louder had she tried.
"I know, baby." Ma said from the front passenger seat, reaching her hand back and squeezing her knee in assurance. She handed back a small travel mug before warning, "Remember, just a little sip. We need to save it until it rains again."
Rachel sipped from the mug and coughed quietly, overwhelmed with a feeling of inescapable irony. "I wish we could drink from t
|This is a group which features deviations similarly to the way Daily Deviations works.|
Only members and admins can submit art they're suggesting into the gallery.
Suggest a deviation to be featured by submitting it to the proper folder for its category in our gallery. The admins will review all suggested works daily and select several to be featured in our blog and featured folder.
We're limiting the number of suggestions each person can make to 5 per week.
Please don't submit anything that has already been a dA Daily Deviation. We want to feature unfeatured work. (Other deviants'/groups' blogs and news articles do not count.)
You must submit all suggestions to the proper folder in the gallery. You may not submit to Featured; this is where the Daily Deviations for our group go. If you happen to submit to the wrong folder, send a message to one of the admins and they will change it for you.
No spamming. When we say only 5 suggestions per week, we mean it.
You can suggest anything, even if it's from your own gallery. In addition, you can submit art by other people too, if you think that it's good.
Deviations that the admins find exceptionally good will be placed in the Featured folder. This is the reason why you cannot submit art to the Featured folder.
Regular dA rules still apply.
