As I watch, a loose cluster of students
seems to tumble and blow across the street
with the dead leaves.

Their legs,
as thin as the bow of a violin,
or as soft as rising dough,
or withered, veined, and delicate,
cross and weave
in a disorganized wave,
pattering like raindrops.

Some cling to each other
by invisible bonds,
electrons
chattering exitedly about
some unseen nucleus.

Some march with purpose,
faces stern
as soldiers in a parade.

Their bodies adorned
with torn jeans and gleaming piercings,
patterned leggings and tie-dye T-shirts
and a rainbow of hectic hair.

Eclectic styles listening to strange music,
reading obscure poems
and trying too hard to rebel.

They are the feathers of one bird,
alike in their uniqueness.

They seek to stand out,
but succeed in blending in.

Their feet may be clothed
in black boots, sandals, sneakers
or nothing at all;
and yet,
they all point
in the same direction.

Forward, upward,
the future
is in the clouds.
The Students
I came up with the concept for this poem while watching students at WCC crossing the street, and wrote it at the bus stop that same day. College is a different culture, one I find interesting in that there are so many radical ideas, so much experimenting and trying on new faces and new styles, that nothing is any more radical or surprising than anything else.

In Spades With You by Arachnakid
In Spades With You

So I've been reading waaaay too much Homestuck...and I've fallen in love with the Troll romance quadrants (although I agree with certain fans that there needs to be eight, not four). I realized that there is a severe lack of Blackrom love songs in human culture, and that made me wonder what an album cover for Blackrom music would look like...so I made this. It was supposed to be an album cover, but I really didn't want to crop it into a square format, so...I just left it as is. 

This isn't any of the canon trolls, just a random OC music star. ^^

I am super exited and also extremely stressed, because my first day of class at WCC is on Tuesday! AAAH!!! *faints*

I've been getting everything in order for about 6 months now, but even so these last few days feel like I've been running a marathon. I'm loopy, jittery, achy, exhausted, and I think I might be coming down with a cold…uff da.

EDIT: Holy cow, I forgot the most important detail of this news! I'm going to major in either English or Linguistics. ^^ They have similar prereqs, so right now I'm just getting those out of the way.

I have been part of the DeviantArt community since I was 15 years old, experimenting with different mediums and learning new ways to see the world around me. This fall I'm finally starting college, with the intention of eventually becoming a stylistic editor or writer. In the meantime I'm doing freelance editing to gain experience--I really enjoy working with new authors and helping them develop their stories!
