Embers is my current big literature project and also my most cherished work. It's something I spent years working on, rewriting, drafting and polishing, until I reached a version I am satisfied to present to the world.
It's an Urban Fantasy novel that takes place on a span of three different worlds, Earth, and two other worlds filled with magic, war, dragons and other fantastical creatures. A giant elder dragon who's worshiped as a god, and a princess who fell in the whirlwind of a cruel fate.

Embers: Chapter IEmbers I: When Worlds Collide.  
The night was quiet. Barely any ambulances drove in, and even the police cruiser was idle at the corner of the street. The usually busy emergency room lacked people save for a few late night fevers, or twisted ankles. 
"It's still snowing, crossing my fingers we won't get snowed in here." A nurse commented as they watched the snowfall. 
"Only five more hours until my shift ends, and snowed in or not, I'm going home. I ain't eating cafeteria food for another day." Another huff rose and stirred a few chuckles around the nurses' station. 
"Why do we always end up with the graveyard shift in the ER? No fair." 
"Oh, put a sock in it ladies, look at Elizabeth, she's not complaining." 
The woman in question glanced up from her phone at the mention of her name and smiled faintly. She placed the chart she had aside and slipped out of her lab coat. "Well, I'm taking a short break. I have a date." 
Embers: Chapter IIEmbers II : Calamity.
A magic barrier ebbed at the intersection of Herald and Hill. It wasn't meant for protection as much as it was meant to keep the prying eyes out.  The thin, sparkling veil muted the sounds within, hid its occupants from sight, and more importantly, kept the brightly glowing rift concealed under it.
"Please don't be afraid, you're safe here. If you've been hit with a spell, please go to the bartender for potions. We have enough for everyone. If you've been physically injured, Oracle Aurora is inside, and will provide healing magic." 
Some groaned, others prayed, and some wept. An endless stream of different whispers flooded the snowy dome. Two men held gemmed staffs and chanted the same verses over and over. Blue bursts of energy emanated out of the gems in response to the chant and kept the barrier steady as the refugees passed through the portal and into the small tavern. 
"Ancestors protect us."
"A massacre, a bloody massacre! Damn them."
Embers: Chapter IIIEmbers III: In a Strange Room.
"Julie, Juliette, wake up!"
Juliette's body jerked up in a violent motion. She gasped and sobbed as she blindly clutched to Elizabeth.
"Hush little one, it's a nightmare, hush," Elizabeth cooed to the frantic teen, cradling her. She had worked trauma and seen family shatter in a blink, but this was a different case than usual. She wrapped her arms around the girl’s waist, pulling her closer, then gently caressed her hair, guiding Julie's chin to rest on her shoulder. "You're safe now, love." 
Juliette's mind was a haze, groggy and exhausted from the stress of the previous night. She clung to Elizabeth with all her might. Her breath ragged, sight blurred; she had no idea what was going on or why she was being held the way she was; but little by little, her body came to a halt. She pushed herself away from Liza, who gave her a motherly smile.
"Erat malus somnium." Julie mumbled and coughed to clear her voice. "Mea purgando,"  She

The First KissIt wasn't even past eight when she ran into her room. She didn't bother and change her clothes as she simply slid under the covers. She cocooned  herself in her bed hurriedly, unable to hold back the smile that crept up her face. She knew that she had acquired a new set of dreams this evening. Dreams that will be haunting her for a very long time. 
She'd banished every other memory on her way home. This one dream was so majestic it seemed unfit to share anything with it. She feared a picture of her precious moment would seep through the smile she couldn't hide and someone would catch it and drag her back into the dull silent world. 
It was a kiss that lasted seconds, but in her head it was a cinematic that went on for hours. Her heart pounded so viciously to the point she thought the sound alone could fill the entire world around her. She recalled her kiss, a blush creeping on her cheeks. 
She closed her eyes tightly as she stirred in bed. Maybe her dream will go on

For Science, You monster“Doctor, they are approaching. You need to evacuate. The population in the city is down to 10%. My statistics show that at least 40% have been infected and the rest have either died or fled.”
The high pitched, automated voice echoed among the alarms and sirens that went off through the compound. The screens that lined the wall conveyed an emergency broadcast and lights flickered in ominous hues of red. However, the woman in the lab coat remained in the same focused pose as she worked on some numbers and formulas.
“Doctor McKay, they are on the second floor. Please head to the nearest exit. This situation has a 0% chance of survival.”
“For the love of god, just shut up.”
“God is an entity whose presence is questionable doctor. I can’t have a feeling about it without interacting first.”
“Shut up Glyph,” Dr. McKay groaned between clenched teeth as she scrapped the line she wrote moments prior. “Stop the alarms. I can&

A guide to breaking Earth."Sir, sir, please do not touch that!" The panicked man jumped between the hand and the button. "Please sir, with all due respect. No touching allowed, not even for you. I understand it's your first day and you're curious, but please. This room is very delicate!" 
"Aww, Grim, what's the worst that can happen? Why are you named Grim anyway, you look too cheerful for grim." The young man shoved his hands in his pockets and whistled a carefree tone as he walked around the busy room.
Men and women in formal clothing ran around. Papers flew from one side to the other and a lot of buttons blinked as a large monitor, which occupied an entire wall, displayed an image of the world's map. Different numbers flickered on top of the screen, while a control panel filled with weird-looking symbols lined the bottom.
"Is that Earth Grimmy? I never knew it was this small."
"This is just a map sir. Look Jerry, if I can call you that, why don't you go back upstairs? I'm sure you're needed."

thank you so much TheMaidenInBlack for featuring it.

Eden EternalIn a world where the chatter doesn't cease,
and claps for the hollow silence
I cling to the voice in my head,
the one I don't wish to lose.
In my wounded city,
the scents of spices and copper,
lingers in the old markets,
along with the shadowy figures
of merchants and people,
that no longer tread these roads.
The mad man who once sang
words that were long disowned, 
rode a black horse, and set fire
to the golden wheat field he called home.
In my city, the one that now runs red with blood,
I wake to scorching bullets, 
and tank barrels aimed at my chest,
every single day, and every morning,
I promise myself this is the last day,
we'll have to endure war,
but the sunset never draws near.
The story teller has gone insane
and we're still waiting for his tale to end,
but he set fire to his books
and coated his stories in ash,
he threw at the wind.
A thousand nights went along,
people marched into darkness,
holding on to matchboxes that threatened to blow,
and yet we escaped w

i have achieved nothing this month :B other than college things have been utterly quiet, so let me rage about anime for a while instead xD 
Digimon Adventure Tri is airing and omg the memories ;_; i grew up watching Digimon and seeing the first gen come to life again is like a trip down the memory lane T_T it's so beautiful

No Game No Life: I can't begin to say how underrated this anime is. It's amazing and very well crafted, it's a shame to see it so overshadowed. 
I've also finished Neon Genesis Evangelion lately, and the ending was a complete shame. 
World Trigger is still running and it's still good, i just hope it won't turn into a long filler like Naruto. that'd be a total shame. 
Chrome Shelled Regios is another anime i am watching, it's amazing on its own way :D&

Hello, nice to meet you. My name is Julian, I am 23, and I shall be your host through these short lines.
I'm an eccentric gamer, writer, and digital artist. I'm also an an engineering student who's about to graduate.

I believe a smile can save a life.

I returned to dA in 2013, and was on the brink of self destructing. Behind the cheery attitude and the hugs I gave, there was a darker side I fought against on regular basis. I suffered a severe depression that haunted me more often than I'd liked to admit. I struggled against suicidal thoughts whenever I sank in through a depression episode. Getting out of bed was a struggle, eating, smiling, you name it. Through the first few months I spent here, I met a few friends who changed and still change my life for the best. They helped me see life in a new light, make choices I never thought were possible and restored my faith in myself and my art.

In two and a half years I beat depression. I beat the knife I once held to my throat. I still struggle sometimes, but it's not the hell it used to be.

I still have my own personal hell to fight. My life isn't rainbows and butterflies, and I don't believe it'll ever be. Yet, I fight. I know i can make my dreams come true. I know I can be a better person. Therefore I fight and will keep on fighting.

If you're reading this, just keep in mind that you're an amazing person who's literally born out of stardust. So go ahead and show the world what you can do, and before you hold that knife to your skin, please, please, remember, you're not worthless, you're not a burden, you don't have to apologize for existing. Hurting yourself won't make the pain go away. You're a unique entity born into this world. The world itself may by a cruel place at times, but the fight never ends. We'll fall, but we'll rise again, a thousand times better. We'll get kicked down over and over again, but it's not over, not while our hearts are beating.

Do NOT give up. Don't back down. You're amazing in every single way, even if you refuse to see.

Live. you're the universe presented in this body and this life is yours to make a difference.


I am not unapproachable. If you want to talk, chat, rant, or want someone to listen, feel free to note me. I also have a Skype if it's easier for you.


Before you comment!

Look left, take one of my offers instead! it's a win win!

some art you should see:

Elemental Ch. 1: Dying for Rain"Never anything to do in this town. It's absolutely dead." Christina thought to herself as she absently played pool. It was a slow day. The thunderstorm raging outside seemed to have chased her customers away. There was no one in the building other than her. Even her boss hadn't shown up. He'd called saying that when the weather eased up he'd come. Without anyone to keep her company, Christina was bored out of her mind.
She heard the bell on the door as a handsome stranger came inside, bringing the storm with him. She didn't mind. He had a day or two's worth of stubble and the smoke from his cigarette followed him as did the smell of rain. It came through an old, rusted screen door, bringing just enough humidity to make her shirt stick, even though the breeze was blessedly cool for the first time in weeks. His voice sounded rough and commanding when he ordered a beer, but he had nice manners so she overlooked that.
She served him and resumed her one-woman game of pool. She felt his eye
Elemental Ch. 2: Tempest RisingChristina dreamed. The smells of the bar clung to her so strongly that it seemed the stale beer and cigarettes were actually in her nose for a moment. The smell of water, of Rain took over, drowning her. She was cold, damp, chilled down to her bones. Rain, rain…rain. Why did it fill her with dread, with such fear?
“You did say you’d die for Rain…” It echoed through her head along with the sound of a raging thunderstorm, but it made no sense to her. Even in her dreams she wondered where she’d heard it. The words, ominous, twisted and turned within her sleeping thoughts making the pounding in her head increase from a single drum to an entire marching band. The pain became blinding, white hot, causing even her skin to burn unbearably when moments before she’d been icy cold. Unconsciously she cried out in her sleep.
Suddenly she was awakened by a familiar voice calling to her, “Juliana! Juliana! Wake up Love.” Christina bolted upright,

you should seriously go look at it :D
