The Loanshark - WIP
The clock ticked coldly on the wall. It was an immaculate looking thing, white, bland, but expensive, like the rest of the room’s décor. The room seemed a respite from its immediate surroundings since the rest of the neighborhood definitely, defiantly gave off a black market vibe of seediness. You wouldn’t know looking at the place that it was operating in a strictly illegal sense. How they dressed up this place to make it appear otherwise. The man waiting on the couch eyed the quartz clock untrustingly. He fidgeted on the seat while the receptionist did a memory puzzle at the desk—he knew because when he had checked in at her desk, he could see it next to her computer. He shuddered and looked around for the ventilation duct; he thought he felt a draft in the room, but maybe it was just his body playing a trick on him. Maybe it was because he shouldn’t be here.
Tick tick tick, the second hand swept through its motions; with each tick, another mome

Water Striders - WIP
A blackwater river moved with the patience of centuries round the bend where Tanin stood. Beside him rested his strider. Sunbeams glistened on the shallow waters in such a way that the surface was the color of rust close to him, yet an eerie green farther ahead. Tanin’s breath was hushed as he eyed the bend ahead, seeing what he did not want to see. The strider next to him chirped restlessly by rubbing its wings together.
“Shh, shh…” said Tanin. He patted its big brown head until it quieted. The water strider’s vocalization was just one noise in the din of wildlife that pressed upon them from all sides.
Tanin hesitated, but the slow current urged him on. He sloshed forward, shins half enveloped and toes and feet massaged by the sand and the rocks until he reached the small island in the middle of the murky waters.
The dark dirt and mat of dead leaves were cool and mushy under bare feet. He knelt and inspected the dead campfire for a few minutes as his wate

Bathing in an Unfamiliar KFC
It is a land of baths too hot for me, tatami mats, and stylish girls, all of whom I’d like to talk to, but I lack that great facilitator of human communication – shared language.
I’m going to Japan with my two best friends, who don’t really want to sightsee much and don’t like sushi, the most well-known food of Japanese cuisine to Americans. But that’s fine with me. I don’t mind people ridiculing me for going to Japan without tasting sushi, and I don’t need to see every darn bridge, building, or temple that fellow tourists deem important. I’m content with just blending in and seeing how these people live.
Blending in… right.
Bathing is something of a way of life for the Japanese, and a stereotype that holds much water among them is that foreigners can’t handle the heat of Japanese style baths. My journey into the land of Japan consisted of me trying to fight off this ignominious stereotype whenever the end of the day wa

Ode to Charmander 31's Pokemon Chat
In the years prior to the new millennium, in the earlier days of the web, those evocative 90s where the internet was not yet ubiquitous in every home, there was a movement, an art form. It built itself in Yahoo chats, and spread to embedded free chatrooms on a few websites chosen seemingly at random for destiny. It was online roleplaying.
It was hopelessly nerdy. It grew out of nerddom. It was nerddom. Out of Dungeons & Dragons, out of BBS and IRC, out of choose-your-own-adventure novels and early textual RPGs known as MUDs… And it was a glorious age. Men and women, the bravest and most creative virtual fighters the world would ever know, frequented such locales as Charmander 31’s Pokémon Chat and Ace Digimon to do battle. The tales of the greatest warriors passed from mouth to mouth, and there were names that echoed across the great chasms of the internet. Names such as Squall, the great hero, and BlueLightningFlik, the great villain who introduced the T2 fight

Untitled Fantasy
With crooked weaving dirty roads and alleys filled with smells that would make anyone gag, it could be determined that the city of Disgaea was a very large city. This city sprawled from a large hilltop, and the highest elevated part of the city sat on the tip of this earthy profusion that men named Yonane Hill. That was where the ominous, foreboding castle stood that watched over the more pitiful parts of the city. A constant reminder for those below that there were some who were born into a more fortunate station in life sat right on Yonane Hill.
Such a huge divide between the rich and the poor has always been the case in civilized tradition, and it was undisputed by powerless commoners and the satiated lords and ladies both.
Truly, a city built upon the crest of a hill would be expected to be built centered around that very tip, but this city with walls as high as 100 feet plunged down just one side. Though one side was once lush and fertile and thus an ideal place to build a city, t

Hey, I'm a wannabe writer and can't draw at all.

I originally created this account just to follow and watch other artists, but eh, I only recently realized that deviantART lets you submit literature.

So I guess I might as well put some stories I've got lying around on here.

I also go by komodo07 or gyr_falcon125 on other sites.

Current Residence: Maryland
