I was breathless, shocked and unbelievably happy. My prince had come and was ready to take me away. But then the fine details lit like kerosene, like a flash bang in a instant it was all gone. Only tears and fear was left, could I overcome? It’s been three years to the date and no I haven’t. Every 14th the wounds are spread open fresh and as painful as the day the communication stopped. The fine details sting like grains of salt slowly falling into the pink tissue. Your face, your vocie, even your laugh haunts me from the tips of my toes to the crown of my head.
I don’t want to think anymore, so I drown my thoughts and my emotions in a sea of false hope and promises. I knew what I wanted and I gambled everything and I lost big. And now as the tears swell I don’t know what should come next. As the breathe escapes my lungs, I cough back all that I have buried in my soul and in my heart. Like a great slumbering monster, the hurt and anger begins to grow and fester.
My chest sinks as if something is stealing the air from my lips and all I can do is sit there and watch. I become weak and sadden by what will happen next and how long I will be alone. But I am not alone…But it feels like I am. And on this day it always will.

I thought I should share the great socks and giveaway a $60 gift certificate to their site!
The rules are super simple:
- You may reblog this as much as you like!
- No sideblogs please, lets keep this fair.
- You do not have to be following me to win! Though, if you can tolerate my gobs of Homestuck, feel free to do so!
- Likes do count!!!
- Since this is an e-gift certificate, I will be needing your email address.
I will be using a random number generator to pick the winner, and they will be contacted via Tumblr ask box. Please have your ask open. If the first winner does not reply within 48 hours, a new winner will be chosen.
The winner will be chosen on January 27th, 2013.
Good luck! ♥
**MINA’S HUGE (SOMEWHAT USED) ART SUPPLY GIVEAWAY !!!! **
Hey hey guys! Just cleared out my desk during some winter break cleaning and came across a generous amount of art supplies that I have either used once and never went back to, used a lot but still had some juice in ‘em, OR are brand new!! Figured there’s no need for this stuff to go to waste, so why not make a giveaway out of it?
SO HERE’S THE DEAL. There will be one winner. This winner will receive:
-A small 4x6 black sketchbook, normal paper. [Used. The pages that were used have been removed and the beginning looks a little beat up, but there are PLENTY of clean sheets left!]
-A very small mini photo album. [Brand new.]
-A medium-sized purple sketchbook, thick paper for wet media. [Brand new. The interesting thing about this one - each sheet has a piece of tracing paper right before it. No idea how this can be utilized to its best ability but I’m sure you creative peeps will come up with something!]
-Four prismacolor markers: Sienna Brown, Brick Beige, Dark Brown and Dark Umber. [Used. All tested and work great!]
-Seven prismacolor inking pens, size 05: Black, Red, Orange, Green, Blue, Light Brown and Dark Brown. [Used. All tested and work great!]
-Two thick metallic prismacolor markers: Silver and Gold. [Used. All tested and work great!]
-Two mechanical pencils, both with refills. [Brand new.]
-A sample pack of mini Strathmore paper. [Brand new.]
-A Faber-Castell eraser. [Brand new.]
-A black carrying case to keep it all together! [Brand new.]
-Set of 10 prismacolor colored pencils: White and Red are sadly missing. [Heavily used, but these are expensive colored pencils and there’s no use getting rid of them!]
-Set of 12 metallic colored pencils. [Brand new.]
-Set of 3 blender pens for water-based ink. [Brand new.]
-Cray-Pas pastels. [Used. All tested and work great!]
-Neocolor professional crayons. [Used. All tested and work great!]
-Set of 6 Faber-Castell brush pens. [Used. All tested and work great!]
-A fountain inking pen, complete with plenty of refills! [Used. When testing, it appeared that the previous ink cartridge was running low, but I didn’t want to poke a hole in a brand new one for travel. It will most likely need a new one installed for its next use.]
And that’s everything!! NOW FOR THE RULES.
-ONLY reblogs count.
-You do not need to follow in order to participate.
-Please just one reblog per person… if I see you either reblogging many times or using a giveaway blog you will be disqualified. :(
-I will *ONLY SHIP IN THE UNITED STATES*. This is due to far too many of my etsy orders, previous giveaway, and other past experiences that just ended in nothing getting to its destination overseas. It’s frustrating, but I’ve got to do it this way to ensure the supplies don’t simply get lost.
-You must be okay with giving out your address so I can ship ‘em!
-Your ask box must be open. I will notify the winner and they will have 48 hours to respond, both to confirm that they are located in the US and to provide their address, otherwise I will pick the next person.
And that’s pretty much it! The giveaway will end on THURSDAY, JANUARY 10TH at 9PM. Good luck everybody!!
This is awesome.
My bike said no to snow lol. Twice now I guess I am walking to walk for a bit.

DOCTOR CONQUEST’S BIG HOLIDAY-TIME COPIC MARKER GIVEAWAY
So I’ve got this pretty solid collection of Copic art markers. They’re great. I like them a lot. But here’s the thing: I am so allergic to them that I can’t use them without wearing an industrial strength respiratory mask, which is very uncomfortable and awkward, meaning I haven’t used these beautiful markers in over a year and have no intention to in the future.
They’re lonely. They’re unloved. They need a new artistic mind to command them. Could that artistic mind be…yours?
IT COULD BE WITH THIS GIVEAWAY.
I’d thought about trying to sell some of my Copic collection for a while but it turns out I can’t be bothered with the trouble and anyway I prefer giving things away (related fact: I will never be rich). And though I am but a humble internet-no-one-in-particular with not many people following this blog I thought, surely, someone is going to see this and want these magnificent markers, right?
Copic markers are, in my opinion, the best art markers you can get. They’re incredibly versatile—they can go on perfectly flat and smooth to look like digital colouring, they can be blended to look like watercolours, they can do a lot of things! However, their quality is reflected in their cost and although they’re worth every penny, at $4 to $7 per marker they can be prohibitively expensive, especially for students. So, here’s a chance to win a pretty great set!
ONE LUCKY WINNER of this giveaway will receive 62 Copic markers, retail value of about $298, consisting of:
-39 Copic Ciao and Copic Sketch colours, including all the basic colours, flesh tones, neutrals and shades, and the colourless blender
-a complete set of Copic Original cool grey tones, plus black
-a complete set of Copic Original warm grey tones See images above!
WOW SO MANY PRETTY MARKERS
Wait, am I going to be super allergic to these too?
Almost definitely not. Most people aren’t bothered by Copics at all, I’m just super unlucky and oversensitive. The markers have very little smell, especially compared to other art markers.
HOW TO WIN AND WHATNOT:
-Reblog this post
-I will announce the randomly chosen winner on January 5, 2013. You must have your ask box open or email address available so I can contact you and get your address to send you your cool stuff! If I don’t receive a response within 72 hours I’ll choose another winner.
-I will ship anywhere! Unless it is somehow illegal for you to get a box of markers in the mail.
And that’s it! I think. Hopefully I haven’t left out a crucially important step to this. Anyway, thanks for reading this far! Please share this with your artsy acquaintances who might be interested in a chance to win $300 worth of fancy markers. :)
Good luck, lovely citizens of tumblr!
