These are my drawings and writings, obviously.

I'm a writter at heart, but I also like traditional art and I'm getting the hang of my Wacom tablet. I don't necessarily believe that digital art will replace good ol' fashion hand-drawn pieces (ever) or vice versa, but as I say, "To each their own."

My only wish as an artist/writer is to strive to get better, until I'm finally satisfied with overall result and progress, but I also wish for people to enjoy my work.

I'm not the greatest, I know, but it's because I know that I can only grow and get better. I'mma just cut this short before it gets to long XD

Peace~

As you can tell these are my faves and most of them are from my amazingly talented friends, so, enjoy~

Okay, we just moved into some apartments.

They have a 'Business Center'.

Free. Computers.

*mind blown*

They even have a scanner! This is freakin' awesome! Also, no one is hardly ever in here (don't ask my why, there's a friggin' snack/soda machine not even three yards from me.)

But of course, I did not bring any of my artwork to upload, nor did I bring my beloved notebook. This is just awesome. It's within walking distance too, that is, if my mom doesn't have a cow. Pretty sad when you're eighteen years old and your mother is still telling you what to do. Eesh. Moving on.

Uhh, well, what else is there? Oh, yes! I've nearly finished my Halloween costume! All I need to do to it is revamp a pair of old jeans and it'll be complete. Hmm, I'm pretty sure that's it. I'll definitely try to upload art next time.

Alright, tried to keep it short and sweet, my mom doesn't wanna stay here all day. I'll see y'all later!

Peace out and Godspeed~

Ryllis watched as her old childhood friend threw his arms open wide, encouraging the crowd to cheer even louder.

Most of his torso was visible except for his upper chest and shoulders, which were covered by fresh strips of linen that wrapped tightly around his body. Even his baggy cargo shorts hung low on his hips, not to mention he was barefoot. His choice of clothing hardly did anything to disguise his toned physique - it was awfully distracting. In fact, everything about him was awfully distracting.

From his odd hair - naturally ash blonde with artificially colored black bangs - along with his narrow jawline and androgynously shaped eyes and mouth. Seriously, the young man's lashes were just as full as his lips. Vance still had a boyishness to his features, but certainly not his body. That was definitely all grown up.

She hardly noticed his approach to her front row seat, too lost in her thoughts of how much he had grown. How much both of them had grown...

Apart.

"See something you like?" His tone was arrogant and cocky, it hadn't always been like that though, as he leaned over the waist high railing to place his muscular forearms on her jean clad thighs. Vance's grin was all show, just plastered on his face with no real emotion. Nothing underneath but dull, dead eyes.

Ryllis frowned, her eyes suddenly stinging with tears. This was no longer her dearest friend. That sweet little boy had been taken from her as surely as he stood before her right now.

She was so lost in her momentary grief that Ryllis hardly heard what he said next.

"I'm glad you could finally make it to one of my shows, Lis. I've been tryin' to get you to one of these for months-" His mask of an expression faltered when she suddenly grasped him by the back of his neck and pulled him closer.

For a moment his green eyes became vivid and shone with real emotion - surprise - for she had caught him off guard.

And for that moment, she had her best friend back. Her dearest companion. Most trusted person she ever held dear. First crush. Her only childhood love.

With several ears escaping down her cheeks she kissed him sweetly, her gentleness surprising him more than a slap in the face ever could. So soft... Vance was absolutely silent, frozen on the spot in awe as she pulled away.

Misery was etched onto her features.

Mad for once the brash, cocky, arrogant soldier didn't have a simple sarcastic reply.

Why did she always do this to him? Why did she always have to make him feel? Emotion were futile and weak, worthless things. They had been beaten out of him long ago... But she always brought them back. Maybe that's why he always pestered her, always teased her or purposefully angered her. He did it for his own selfish desire to feel something, anything again.

With his scarred and trembling fingers Vance managed to wipe away the tears on her face.

"You're gone, aren't you?" Ryllis whispered brokenly, her hope fading fast.

It didn't even sting when he said, "I've been gone for a while now, Lis."

When her shoulders started shaking it was his turn to pull her close, but this time it was for a comforting embrace. "What happened to you, Vance? You've changed so much..." Her breaths came out shakily against his neck, and Vance took a moment to glance at the crowd to gather his composure.

The hundreds of screaming fans were now either getting something to drink or eat in preparation for the upcoming match or talking amongst themselves. No one really paid any attention to the all-star in the room or... His friend.

Vance had been taught - no, trained - that 'friends' were meaningless, and people were only used to help you gain some sort of advantage in life. Not Ryllis. She was different. She was special... To him.

Yet, that didn't matter anymore. To say that he was the leftover ashes of his former self was a massive understatement. Ryllis deserved someone better. Someone that could handle a stable relationship. Someone that could actually...

Love her the way that she needed to be loved. He just wasn't capable of that anymore. "Ryllis, I..." He was speechless.

She leaned back into her respective seat, leaving his arms empty and cold. Calmly, she wiped her face clean and took a deep breath to sort out her thoughts and feelings.

"I'm sorry, I don't know what came over me. Just... Just forget that I ever said anything..."

Vance shook his head, trying to reset his mental state of mind. His match was coming up soon, he needed to be cold and cruel. For goodness sake, he was a soldier! Though as he watched her stare down at her hands, Vance knew that he could never forget her words.

Even when he finally succumbed to his ever encompassing and twisted mindset, he would never forget her tears and how she shed them for him.

"How about this," he decided, cupping Ryllis' chin and tilting her face up to met his gaze. Then he gave her a good long look. Most people saw a young woman with brown hair and brown eyes. Simple. Ordinary. Plain. But they didn't see the flecks of green and copper in her eyes, or how her nose and cheeks were sprinkled with faint freckles, and how her hair shone red in the light.

"If I win this match, I get another one of those sweet kisses of yours-"

Ryllis shoved him, noticing that his cocky smirk was back full force - but it was different. It was genuine.

"Ha, I bet the other guy will knock you out with one punch!" Instantly the mood was lightened, and Vance mentally sighed in relief.

"So, deal?" His grin widened.

"Deal." She didn't even blink.

Leaning forward again, satisfied that he had fired up that temper of hers, he dared to ask, "How about just one of those teary-eyed kisses? You know, for luck?"

Vance narrowly missed getting slapped in the face.

"As if! I just haven't gotten enough sleep recently is all! I must have been hallucinating and thought you were someone else!"

The young man gave a hearty laugh at how flustered she was getting. He enjoyed getting people all worked up. "You're just too cute sometimes, Ryllis. Kinda makes me wanna have you all to myself..." With a wicked, albeit playful, gleam in his eyes he left it at that and backed away from the railing to head towards the center of the arena.

Just thinking about having her all to himself made his lips tingle. Vance knew that what he said could never happen. Hot headed little tomboy Ryllis could never be his. He was too messed up to be good enough for her.

Even over the crowds nearly deafening chatter, he could still hear her yell.

"I'd like to see you try!"

Goodness, why did she have to challenge him like that? Vance always did love a good challenge...
Vance and Ryllis Drabble
... Whatever a drabble is (short story?)

 WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN KNOW!

 Seriously, I've just been writing crazy stuff down in my notebook (much like this) and I have no idea where is comes from... Okay, well, I guess Vance is kind of inspired by Dilandau (The Vision of Escaflowne, weirdest anime I have ever watched. Ever, but still interesting.) I've been reading a lot of fanfiction (FANFICTION.NET = BEST THING EVER!) I was reading one and Dilly was in a... side role? Supporting role? Pfftwhatever I just got inspired and volia, here this thing is.

I got a picture of that fella Vance drawn up (headshot really) but not Ryllis yet. Also, before you start fighting with your friends on how to pronounce her name, it's RYE-LISS (Rye as in rye bread, and liss as in bliss) If I do ever rp as these characters, they are probably going to be separate/not together/probably don't even know that the other one exsists.

Dang, my back hurts from sitting so still as I write all of this. I've got two more stories written in my notebook, but they are VERY long (not really, the longest one is 15 pages... that's not long, right?) so I'm probably not gonna do those tonight... Actually, I might go straight to bed XD

And, yes, I did edit this some from the original (original being my notebook, yeah, I'm gonna mention that thing a lot) but not that much. Mostly just added a couple words/sentances/switched some words to more intelligent ones.

Please do tell me if certain phrasings I use doesn't make sense or if I misspelled anything or I put a double space anywhere and blah blah blah yadda yadda yadda, but most importantly send me some feedback! I think I take constructive criticism pretty well (I might go cry for a lil' bit XD, but what you say will register with me and I will consider and value your input.)

 Thank you guys for reading my incredibly long descriptions, and my short stories. I sincerely hoped you enjoyed it.

 Peace out and Godspeed :heart:

P.S. I just realized that Vance and Van's name are incredibly similar..... Curse you Escaflowne!
Loading...
 When was my last journal post? A few days ago, if memory serves me right (which it never does so you might have to go check for yourself... Just saying.)

 Literally, the next day, Cricket bill is due. Okay, no big whoop.

 So, after work my dad goes to pay it. Guess what? They don't frickin' except bridge payments anymore and want the full amount.

 We don't have the full amount, hence why I am typing this on my sister's laptop (If you actually did go look at my second to most recent journal you will see that my sister has a tablet.... And a laptop. Why? Who knows.)

 To cut this short, no internet/calling/texting on my phone until... Uh, probably Tuesday? I'll try to reply to some comments while I'm on and suchness, but I kind of stole this from my sister and she is expecting it back soon.

 Just wanted to give you guys a heads up is all.

 Also, I managed to download a DeviantArt app on my phone (before we missed the payment) and apparently you need to pay money to upload pictures via phone. I guess that helps pay for the app or something but, uh, I think I'll wait until I get a computer of my own, thank you (And I've been drawing so much recently it's ridiculous! I know in my later post I said I didn't really draw anymore but boy did I prove myself to be a liar!)

 I might try posting some written work but that's going to take absolutely forever.... Oh, who am I kidding, I'm doing it right now XD Love you guys and I'll talk to you all later.

:iconeweplz: Peace out and Godspeed :heart:

Woo, a lot has gone down these past few months. I can't even begin to explain. I'm an adult now, that's freakin' nuts. I've missed you guys, and I'm gonna try to be online more often.... Only problem is I still don't have a computer- I'm on my sister's tablet. Another problem is I don't really draw anymore, I do still write though, but I think I'll be posting more things about sewing/fashion related stuff. I know that sounds odd coming from me, but it's a passion that recently taken over me - plus, I kinda think clothes are like wearable art, right? Thank you guys for sticking with me, I don't know when I'll be back but it should be soon. Love you guys, peace out and God bless you~

Hey guys and gals, welcome to my page. I'll keep the introduction short and sweet- My name is Brittany, but most people call me Britt. I admire all forms of self expression, whether it be music, sewing, painting, writing, cooking, drawing, crafting or just about anything else you can think of. I am a Christian -not a very good one- and I'm just trying to get through life in one piece. I am by no means perfect, nor do I seek perfection in others. And, uh, yeah. That's pretty much it. Thanks for reading, peace out and Godspeed.

Thanks Bree, I appreciate it :meow:

Don't worry, I'll be on in a few days, I'm just tearing up a floor. I'll talk to you asap, just got my phone back too so that might make things easier.

Hey, anything you want special for your birthday while I'm at it? I can draw, make, write, and video just about anything you want me too.

And when I type 'anything', I mean about 85-to-90% sure I can do just about anything for you. Now if it wasn't for you that'd be a different story XD

Dear! 

Oh, my goodness, it's so good to hear from you! I've missed you so much! 

Things have changed a lot since you've been away. 

It'll be so nice to have you around again. 

You had a happy birthday, right? I hope so. How is the family? 

Hahah, you don't have to do anything for me, love. I'd just like to hang out with you again.

I've missed you too, very much.

I bet, things have been changing where I'm at too lol. Yes, yes I did, it was an awesome b-day. 

A few hours ago my nephew Max was born, so family is great. I've also made a good friend out of my cousin Jacob since we moved out here.

Ah, phooey, you sure you don't want anything else?

And speaking of you, how've you been doing lately?
