|My pencil drawings|
My deviantART StoryWell this is my second year on deviantART. I have branched out from just drawing to so many different mediums that i never thought I would ever be able to do. I never saw myself ever creating cosplay costumes, but here I am contemplating making a Castiel outfit!My deviantART Story by ConsultingTimeLord96
This was my first ever entry to deviantART. I created it for the sole purpose of giving my local video game store owner a little gift, but a friend suggested i create a DA account. I'm so glad i listened to her!
One of my most recent drawings. I've come so far in the past two years. Stark lines have faded into guiding shadows, creating a more realistic look. I'm still far from near perfection, but i've come a lot closer than i thought possible!
This is the first original work of mine that I posted here. It was a short little story that I had to write for my english class, but I loved doing it! I had so much that i had to work o

The Knight's Cross IVThe Knight's Cross IV by AshATurner
Under charge of the quartermaster, Vane, the crew of the Ghost Runner began to unload crates of sugar, rum, and a variety of other cargo from the ship while Alistair and Ian made their way further inland from the port. While his father’s journal had marked Halifax, there was no other information on what, or who, was the reason this place was so important regarding the treasure. Alistair didn’t have the time or the patience to wander about and listen, hoping to uncover something by little more than chance. Not knowing where else to go for answers, he and Ian headed towards the tavern.
A town’s tavern was the place to go for information. It cou

Alistair joined Ian and his quartermaster, Vane, at the helm of the Ghost Runner just a short time later, taking in the sight of the familiar port with a keen eye. As he had thought, the place had changed a great deal, even in the last year. But even with what had been built, torn down, and rebuilt again, this place was still the same to him, and while he tried not to think of it as such, this still felt like a homecoming of sorts.
As the Ghost Runner reached the docks of Halifax, Alistair made his way down the steps, motioning that Ian follow. “Have you informed the crew as I asked?” he inquired as he walked.
“Aye,” Ian replied with a

~ PART II ~
Eleven months later.
The docks at the port in Halifax weren’t incredibly crowded, which was preferable to Captain Alistair Knight. His intentions for coming to this port over any other in the northern waters of the coast was something that he had chosen to keep to himself. He was still new to the position of being captain, and he was well aware that certain men aboard his ship, the Ghost Runner, were not the sort of men he trusted with the absolute truth of his endeavor.
Coming to Halifax was well out of the way of their usual sailing routs, but Alistair had been very insistent about coming. While some were curious as to what in particular enticed thei

The high seas.
Miles and miles of endless water, holding the potential for riches, fame, freedom, and glory. Men would captain ships of loyal crewmen, leaving their homes in search of something better. Some would leave intending to return, but many left never intending to come back. The seas were always calling, beckoning, and whispering the promises that could steal the hearts of men faster than the most beautiful women.
Not every sailor to answer the sea’s call were honorable men, and as with every society, the seas soon became known for their legendary criminals. These men, these pirates, all had their own motives, but they all were king

It can be for original fiction or fan-fic writers. This is for all writers of any variety.
1. Answer the questions
2. Tag 2 people
3. Have fun! Make the answers long or as short as you like.
1. When did you discover you enjoyed writing?
I was twelve when I discovered that, because in all honesty, I had absolutely loathed writing or anything to do with it before that. But all I had ever known was assigned writing, and I still don't like that But I'd always imagined out stories, and one day, after failing to write a song (I'm not musical so it's no surprise), I thought, why not write a book instead. Even so, I was fifteen before I actually finished a project...
2. What are your strengths in writing?
Hmm, I have always felt that dialogue was my initial strong point, but I've since been told that I've very good at describing my characters' thoughts and emotions in detail, linking it to the dialogue. As for being descriptive, I have come a long way, but I try to leave more to my readers' imaginations.
3. Your weaknesses?
I cannot write anything short or concise; I need lots of paper and time to explain myself, and my shortest "short" story is still 58 pages...Most of my works average 400-650 pages...
4. What is your favorite genre to write in?
Probably fantasy/adventure, though I try to keep it as believable as possible; apart from including gods and some nonexistent creatures, I keep it grounded as much as I can. I have a couple of things in "modern" times, but even that includes a little fantasy and adventure.
5. Do you consider yourself a good writer?
I do, but I've been at it for twelve years now, and while I know I will continue to improve, I have gotten to the point where I am mostly happy with my work, minus a few word changes here and there...
6. Do you like to let a lot of people in real life read your work?
No, not at all. Most people I know aren't really interested, and I'm very self-conscious and protective of my work. I have let two pastors read it, both giving me very positive words, and I let one friend read it (which I now regret), but otherwise, only my mom. She is my confidant when it comes to writing (and anything else), and often my sounding board for ideas or any plot issues I might run into. She also often inspires what I include, whether intending to or not, and my since completed four-volume series actually stemmed from an offhand joke she made
7. How often do you write?
Every day except weekends, or if I'm having a particularly hard time getting words put together. But otherwise, I write as if it were my day job, using the morning hours before going into work in the afternoon. Hopefully one day soon, it will be my day job
8. Who are your favorite authors? Why?
Ah, hmm, well...I love A. Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, and reading those definitely led to more interest in writing on my part, and trying to expand my style. I still quote the Hound of the Baskervilles as my favorite book. J.K. Rowling was the author, though, who really inspired me to follow my dream of writing. Other authors whose work I have enjoyed are C.S. Lewis, Garth Nix, Rick Riordan, and Suzanne Collins, and yes, Stephenie Meyer as well (don't judge by the films).
9. Do you have any OC's? If you do, describe your favorite one.
All my characters are OCs Asking me to pick a favorite is like asking me what piece of myself on paper I like best. The main character of my four volume series (sorry, guys, not giving his name) would definitely be dearest to me, because while he has his faults (hotheaded, rebellious, tends to see only from his point of view), he also embodies what I think a hero is meant to be: a man who did what he felt was right and made the world a better place because of it. I hope you'll see him on the shelf in the near future
My other favorites would be Sergei, who I've shared a little of here on dA, and reflects a lot of things I identify with personally, and my current main character, Alti, who is a wonderful exciting mix of cold, harsh logic and warm, deep love and loyalty.
10. If you write fanfic, for what fandoms do you do so?
I actually dabbled a little bit in fanfic, with Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter. My LotR project lacked real plot, however, and never went anywhere. I still have one Dramione fanfic in my gallery, but that remains the only venture into fanfiction. I could not balance writing fanfiction with writing a project I intended to publish without one or the other suffering. The fanfiction got the axe.
11. Do you prefer writing by hand or typing?
I wrote a total of three and a half books out by hand initially, but I began to take shortcuts and use less words to save myself time, and my writing went downhill. I switched over to typing, and now, not only can I get so much done in less time, my skill improved drastically.
12. Are you a huge critic when it comes to writing?
Yes, whether my own or someone else's; I'm fussy and kind of picky. Not just about grammar, spelling, punctuation, but kind of about style and content as well. So, if I tell you I like your writing, believe me, I don't say it lightly.
13. What format do you most like to write in? (Prose, short story, poetry, vignettes, etc?)
Prose. As stated above, I cannot write short. I simply cannot. My stories need the chance to expand and develop, and complicate, and I simply can't tell a story that satisfies me in short form. Poetry--erm, I've written it, and I think I suck, but I have no real desire for it, either.
