Hmm... new dA layout. Wonder how many butthurt deviants are whining about it, begging dA to change it? For my part, I like it, but admittedly it will take some getting used to, just like all the other changes. Can't last seven years on dA without getting used to changes.
Last Line of Defense by TheInimitableECypher
Last Line of Defense
When everyone else on the team is caught out, all eyes turn towards the goalkeeper; the last line of defense. A good goalkeeper can be the bane of any team.

...and it's not even because of writer's block for once, at least not completely.

No, my computer monitor died on me. All my most recent story notes and files are stuck on my hard drive, which I can't access because I can't see what I'm doing. :grump: Not sure how long it will be before I can get a replacement, so I might not be doing as much work on my stories as I'd like to be. Might be able to put up a few pieces, but don't expect much.

He wasn't used to this.

In almost two seasons with his team, he had never experienced this. He was used to his team winning; or at least losing one game, maybe two, then bouncing back in spectacular fashion to win the next one.

But seven games into the season and his team had only won two games, both against vastly inferior opponents. One come-from-behind draw.

The rest were losses.

He had no idea what a losing streak felt like. Not before now, anyways.

He sat there on the pitch, head in hands, trying not to think about what had just happened. They had been expected to win this game. They had been the hands-down favorites.

Instead they spent ninety minutes being continuously frustrated by a defense that refused to budge, conceding a goal because of a defensive error that they really shouldn't have fallen victim to.

And he, as a defender, couldn't help but feel somewhat responsible for what had happened. He was better than this. His team was better than this. What happened today should not have happened. Not to his team.

We shouldn't be letting this happen.

To his left, he knew, the opposing team's players would be celebrating their victory. This had been their first win of the season.

But what he was hearing to his right…

Am I hearing this right?

-

Und wenn Du

das Spiel gewinnst,

ganz oben stehst,

dann steh'n wir hier

und singen Borussia,

Borussia BVB!

-

He took his head out of his hands and looked over at the stands where the chanting was coming from. Around him he could see his teammates doing the same. They all looked as astounded as he did.

They still stand there and cheer us on, even though we lost.

He didn't know why he was so surprised. He had been a fan of this team for years before he became a player. He knew what the fans were like. They always got behind the team, win or lose.

But this was a new one. They were making their voices heard in absolutely spectacular fashion, drowning out the voices of the celebrating away supporters. He couldn't even hear the other team anymore, their celebrations driven from his consciousness.

All he could hear was the wall. The great Gelbe Wand. The Yellow Wall of Borussia Dortmund.

-

Und wenn Du

das Spiel verlierst,

ganz unten stehst,

dann steh'n wir hier

und singen Borussia,

Borussia BVB!

-

He couldn't help it. An awkward smile crossed his face as he listened. Even in defeat they were there, the one constant in such a difficult time.

His team could win, they could lose, but the Wall was always there. They were always behind the team, from the most routine league match, to the biggest, most intense games, where the team had everything to lose.

The Wall always held strong. He had no idea how much he appreciated that until moments like this happened.

He felt a hand come to rest on his shoulder, and he looked up to find his captain standing over him.

"The fans are waiting, Lukas. They're still behind us. Let's go acknowledge them."

The other offered his hand to help him to his feet. Lukas took the hand with a nod, and as he got to his feet, he couldn't help but look back over at the Wall.

"You know, sometimes I'm still amazed by them. I used to be a part of that, and it still amazes me."

"You're telling me," said the other. He could tell his captain was still disappointed by the loss; that would not go away. But Lukas could still see the smile threatening to overtake his face. "Let's go thank them for it."

Even in defeat, the Wall held firm. He was thankful for that, if nothing else. Even when they lost, the Wall could still make them feel like champions.

That was something that never changed.

-

Ganz egal,

was auch passiert,

wir stehen Dir bei,

bis in den Tod,

wir für Dich,

für Dich Borussia,

Borussia BVB!

You'll Never Walk Alone
Have I mentioned recently how amazed I am by BVB's "Yellow Wall"? I don't think I have. I need to.

Here. This is why. Video shot after BVB lost over the weekend. Again, after they lost. They didn't even win and the Yellow Wall still cheers. Consider this story my little tribute to the Wall and by extension all of us lunatic fans who refuse to abandon this team, even in defeat.

"And when you win

Are on top

Then we will be behind you

Singing Borussia

And when you lose

And are rock bottom

Then we will be behind you

Singing Borussia

It matters not

Whatever happens

We will stand by you

To the death

Us there for you

For you, Borussia,

Borussia BVB!"

Most of what you'll find on this page is traditional/digital art (mostly traditional), literature (that nobody ever reads), and photography. Sometimes football fanart, if I'm feeling up to it.

My two most used aliases online are The Inimitable Enigma Cypher (or just E. Cypher) and The Infamous Black Valkyrie. You see anyone online with either of those names (in either those forms or any permutation of them), or work from dA on any other sites under either of those names, chances are it's me.

:bulletred: I am fascinated with the history of the Third Reich; HOWEVER, I DO NOT, HAVE NEVER, NOR WILL I EVER, SUPPORT ANYTHING HAVING TO DO WITH NAZIS, or any permutation of them. Anyone who thinks that German automatically equals Nazi can feel free to leave my page now or keep that to yourself.
:bulletyellow: I'm an atheist, but I respect your right to believe in whatever you believe in. So don't start a fight with me about my belief (or lack thereof), and I won't do so to you.
:bulletred: I know my visual art style is not the greatest. I am perfectly aware of this and I am always working to improve. Over the last few years I've made leaps and bounds from my old work, so I know I'm making progress.
:bulletblack: I write what I want to write, and much like my visual art, I always work to improve. I appreciate any and all types of feedback, unless all you're trying to do to flame me. So don't try to flame me or troll me because, trust me, you will not win that war. I am well-versed in the art of sarcasm and wield it to great effect.
