Return to Hellos and Goodbyes

well, look who's back (warning, cheesy and emotional)

Postby ShadowStitches » 01/14/2018 5:16 PM

Holy moly.

It has been a while. Like. a LONG while.
Some of you might not even know me. I've been super inactive for a while before, and then just vanished mid 2017 I believe, due to...just quite a bit in life going down the drain.
BUT. and I said that before, BUT(!!) for real this time. I'm back.
I might not be super super active, as I recenty (november 2017) started my life as a (more or less voluntary) full time freelance Concept artist/illustrator. and so far, jobs have been slim to none excistent, and I have to do a lot of social media-ing to kind of get a foot in the door (and I'm not good at it yet, and things are just a little scary atm).

You might ask: but if things are so stressfull right now, why come back ?
Because: I really missed this. I need a bit of a safe space to return to and be creative in writing (aside from the comic projects I'm working on). even though I was never the super 'popular' or active in chat one, I do consider this forum and you guys a piece of online home. And sometimes one needs to step back and leave for a bit to really fully understand what you had before.

One small disclaimer: I will pull off the 'blanke slate' stunt (again). Most of my characters are...not to my liking anymore, and I have new ideas. That, mixed with a desire to just start from zero. so what will happen now is this:

I will scrap all of my characters (or...almost all, with exception for maybe one or two) UNLESS some of you are in a RP with me and some of my characters. If you want to continue said Rps, please message me or write me here. Its been a long while, so I'm not sure who would be still interested in picking the old-as-hell threads back up. just be aware that I will most likely scrap my characters after we finished our respective rps.

now. with that said, that also means that there will be probably a big sale coming soon.
I might not be posting up a storm right away, as i said, I am very busy, but I'll do my best.
I hope anyone who I might have left hanging in the air will forgive me for me just...up and leaving.

for now, I'd like to just say
I'ts good to be back

Welcome back, you familiar face!! You'll always have a safe place to be creative here, for sure. It's great to see you back! I'm sorry to hear things haven't been going super well in your corner, and I really hope things look up for you soon ;0;

We do most of our chatting now on Discord, if you use that! I can shoot you an invite to the channel via PM if you'd like <3
In the morning when I wake,
And the sun is coming through,
Oh, you fill my lungs with sweetness,
And you fill my head with you.

Shall I write it in a letter?
Shall I try to get it down?
Oh, you fill my head with pieces
Of a song I can't get out.

Can I take it to a morning
Where the fields are painted gold,
And the trees are filled with memories
Of the feelings never told?

When the evening pulls the sun down,
And the day is almost through,
Oh, the whole world it is sleeping,
But my world is you.


Can I be close to you?

Shadow~ Welcome back again! :D I'd love to pick up our RP with my runaways and your group, though I understand if you're no longer attached to those characters. If not, let me know and I'd like to work out a summary of their story. c: Keep your chin up and I hope you get some great jobs in the near future!

I am not as fine as I seem
Pardon, me for yelling and telling you green gardens
Are not what's growing in my psyche, it's a different me
A difficult beast feasting on burnt down trees
Freeze frame, please let me paint a mental picture portrait
Something you won't forget, it's all about my forehead
And how it is a door that holds back contents
That makes Pandora's box contents look non-violent
Behind my eyelids are islands of violence
My mind ship-wrecked this is the only land my mind could find
I did not know it was such a violent island
Full of tidal waves, suicidal crazed lions
They're trying to eat me, blood running down their chin
And I know that I can fight, or I can let the lion win
I begin to assemble what weapons I can find
'Cause sometimes to stay alive you gotta kill your mind

@ Mojave: Heyo! Of course we can continue the rp :D like I said, I do not mind finishing already existing ones.
as a matter of fact, at least Oz actually might survive the initial 'purge' of my den anyway, as he might fit into
some storyline of planned characters of mine quite well. so no worries :D I'll get to responding today (taking this day of, since I had no weekend :/)
and thanks a bunch ! <3

@ Toxxic: Hey! good to see you again too! great to be back in the old stomping grounds and still see almost everyone around. And thank you :) These things just take time, but I actually might have one intersisting project to be part of soon ish. fingers crossed!
