Flash Fiction Day Submittions 2018
2:02 pm
    I was twelve when the rains started.
    Hours turned to days. Days turned to Weeks. Then months. Then years. Sometimes, it would only sprinkle, a misty spray of the ocean in the middle of no where. Other times, it poured. God's wrath flooding the streets with the black, churning waters of hell. The clouds never parted. The rain never stopped.
    Humanity never stood a chance.

    "I know it sounds crazy, but you have to believe me." The stranger before me pleaded. 
    I took a step back, "Believe you? I don't even know you!" Every fiber of my being told me to run, but I held firm. "What you're telling me is...it's not even--"
    "Possible?" She laughed, "That's what I thought, too. And yet, here I am," Her eyes turned serious, "I would never lie to you, Dee, you know that. I am your sister."
    I looked to my sister, my real sister, playing in the sandbox

NaPoWriMo Day 30: Sunset
“Sleep…” drones the grandfather clock,
Under the fading light, you may
Now, finally, rest.
Silence your pen and let your
Eyes drift closed, for
Tomorrow is ripe with possibility.

Literature
NaPoWriMo Day 29: Sleepless
The faded glow of a full moon
Casting shadows of sapphire,
A kaleidoscope of silver
Dancing through the blinds of my window.
A sleepless night,
A dreamscape of distorted reality,
A prayer to never fall asleep
And to never wake up.

NaPoWriMo Day 27: Afternoon
Sun blazing,
Toasting our skin through
The open windows of my car.
The highway gusts
Tossing our hair into monsters.
Our favorite songs chanting from the radio,
We sing along.
No conversation.
No regrets.
Only an afternoon well spent,
Together.

NaPoWriMo Day 26: Selfish
Oh Spring!
How slowly you rose
From your slumber,
How beautifully you sculpted
Every petal, leaf, and blade of grass.
The life you revived, brought hope
And happiness.
My only regret is that
I could not keep you here.

A thousand times smaller,

NaPoWriMo Day 24: Surprise
Second guessing, constantly
Uncertain of what's to come.
Rarely pleasant is the future, but
Perhaps we could hope for better?
Remember our mistakes, our
Inspirations, our journey, and
Somehow become prepared in the
Event of the unexpected.

NaPoWriMo Day 22: Reflect
And in my reflection I found
Truth.
Painful, distorted, vague.
My reflection paints tall-tales
Of where I’ve been,
What I’ve done,
Who I want to be
And who I know I am.
The truths I wish for,
And the truths I don’t want to see,
Reflect in the eyes of a stranger
Staring back at me.

NaPoWriMo Day 18: Jitters
Deep breathes,
Your lungs expand
And take in the still air.
You are calm.
(I'm terrified)
Slow exhale,
Slower, slower,
Let your body relax.
You are prepared.
(I'm not ready)
Imagine success,
Visualize your goal
And achieve it.
You are the best you can be.
(I'm not even good)
You’ll be okay.
This is only a trial run,
The draft before the final.
One mistake won't matter.
(It will matter)
Take another breath,
And begin.
Your fingers slip,
But you keep going.
(It was one mistake.)
You started too soon,
But you keep going.
(Then another…)
You got off-beat for just a moment
But you keep going.
(And another…)
It's over before you know it.
People applaud you,
Praise you for your performance
(They're lying)
You dust yourself off,
Make note of your wrongs,
And smile.
(As if smiling would help)
What's done is done.
(Give me another chance.)
You did your best.
(I’m better than this, I promise)
And that's all you can ask for.
(How did it go so wrong?)

NaPoWriMo Day 17: 'P'
Prim and proper,
The peacock parades his plumes.
A plethora of pigments,
A proclamation of passion,
Prosperity and pretension.
Pompous by nature,
Pretty all the same.

2:02 pm

    I was twelve when the rains started.

    Hours turned to days. Days turned to Weeks. Then months. Then years. Sometimes, it would only sprinkle, a misty spray of the ocean in the middle of no where. Other times, it poured. God's wrath flooding the streets with the black, churning waters of hell. The clouds never parted. The rain never stopped.

    Humanity never stood a chance.

(Word Count: 65)

 2:40 pm

    "I know it sounds crazy, but you have to believe me." The stranger before me pleaded. 

    I took a step back, "Believe you? I don't even know you!" Every fiber of my being told me to run, but I held firm. "What you're telling me is...it's not even--"

    "Possible?" She laughed, "That's what I thought, too. And yet, here I am," Her eyes turned serious, "I would never lie to you, Dee, you know that. I am your sister."

    I looked to my sister, my real sister, playing in the sandbox just out of earshot. I watched her grope at the grains as she tried desperately to add on to the pile she claimed as a castle. She was only six years old. The woman before me had to be well into her twenties, older than me. She suggested time travel. I suggested insanity.

    The woman sighed and removed the scarf from her neck. My blood went cold. There, just under her chin was the dark spot of a birthmark identical to my little sister's. "That's impossible...You're..." The more I looked at her, the more I saw my sister in those eyes. She was telling the truth.

    The woman replaced the scarf and took me by the shoulders, the only thing keeping me from fleeing. "Listen to me, Dee, this is important." Her grip tightened as if to emphasize her point. "Whatever happens, you must--!"

    White light flooded my vision and she was gone. Everything was gone.

(WC: 249)

9:11 pm

    DO NOT PRESS

    It's not that I didn't understand it. The sign was very clear, I understood the message just fine. But when you're face-to-face with a giant red button, there's only one thing to do.

    I pressed the button.

    The world trembled around me. Not just the ground, but the air seemed to vibrate with an invisible force. Books shivered off tables, priceless vases shattered to the floor. Something in my head buzzed.

    Then it stopped and the world resumed as if nothing had happened. Except for me.

    I should have never pressed that button.

(WC: 96)

11:31 pm

    I had everything perfectly planned. My laptop was charged. I had goldfish crackers and granola bars at the ready. Iced coffee and energy drinks lined my refrigerator just in case I so much as yawned. All I needed to do, was type.

    What I didn't plan for, was the cat.

    I didn't think I needed to worry about her, I mean, she usually just minds her own business. Not today. Today, Jasper had an agenda. 

    Seven hours into my paper and I find myself putting the last few sentences into my conclusion. I was so close to finishing, I could practically feel myself wrapping up into my bedsheets after so many hours hunched over a computer screen. Suddenly, the appearance of brown tabby fur blocked my vision. Jasper's back paw had landed directly on the power button, suffocating it under adorable little toes. I noticed too late.

    The screen went dark behind the purring mass. Seven hours of work, gone. 

    And I never pressed the save button.

(WC: 167)

I know I'm really really late starting this, but here we go! Let's see just how far I can get this year

Edit: Looks like only four. That's alright, got roped into doing a lot of work today, which didn't help. I'm good with what I got, though!

NaPoWriMo Day 30: Sunset
Day 30!! Whew, I made it just in time! Granted, there were quite a few times I got behind *cough cough* all of last week *Weeze* but I did it and that's better than what I got last year (which was 14 days...) I thought I'd celebrate the end with a follow up of my first poem, Sunrise, this year.

Take a break, you guys, you deserve it. As for me, well...I'll see you guys in July.

1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?

   A little over a year, I think. It feels like forever, though!

2. What does your username mean?

   It really doesn't mean anything. I just thought of using something fun! (maybe someday I'll change it...)

3. Describe yourself in three words.

   Quirky, Mature, and Simple

4. Are you left or right handed?

   I'm right handed, but my left hand is my favorite.

5. What was your first deviation?

    Elxen by CherryBerry545 This tiny little picture was my first deviation. When I think back on it, I drew this nearly two years ago! fun things happened in freshman art class. I kinda wish it was larger...

6. What is your favourite type of art to create?

   That's a tough one, because I don't really have a specific type of art that I like to make. I like making colorful things though, whether it be some doodle or a full on picture. Or just doodles in general.

7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?

   Digital art, definitely. There are so many things you can do with digital art nowadays, it's mind-blowing!!

8. What was your first favourite?

    Deadlines by Zombiesmile By. zombiesmile.deviantart.com/. This short little comic was absolutely hilarious! I could relate to it because I'm such a huge procrastinator. I just couldn't stop laughing!

9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?

   Most of the art I favorite is typically humorous, fanart, or starry (galaxies, stars, etc.). I'm a sucker for astronomy, I'm sorry...

10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?

   z-doodler.deviantart.com/ definitely. I absolutely love their comics and art style! (One day I hope to be a comic artist on DA...)

11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?

   dreamsinatin.deviantart.com/. I just think they'd be a neat person to meet. :3

12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?

   Whenever someone comments on my work, or if I find someone who I could strive to be like, it encourages me to work harder and improve. That's the most important thing, right?

13. What are your preferred tools to create art?

   A pencil and paper. 'nuf said. (plus an eraser...)

14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?

   Either in my room or at school when I'm bored and have nothing to do. Both

15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?

   Finding out about the different themed months, like Inktober or NaPoWriMo. I always enjoy the challenge, even though I procrastinate some days and sometimes eventually end up giving up like I've done a few times....hehe

Happy Birthday Deviant art!!! It's been a great 15 years!! (even though I've only known it for a year...) #deviantartistquestionnaire  (really hope I did the tag correctly...)
