|My first original "novel", if you can call it that.|
The sound of footsteps startled him. He knew that nobody was usually here at this time of the day. The building was seldom used; the only people who were supposed to be here at all were the maintenance staff, and they weren't due for another few hours. If someone was here, it could only be bad news for him. This place, aside from being used for a fight club, had been known to be inhabited by all sorts of dangerous types. Types he wouldn't be caught dead associating with.
He didn't know what to do. There was only one way out of this part of the building, and he would easily be spotted by whoever was coming down the corridor. He couldn't be seen here; he had to get out. But he knew that, in his current state, if he was found, he could be easily overpowered if the person didn't have his best interests in mind.
The footsteps now stopped right outside the door. His heart was pounding and his hands were shaking. He was about to be caught, he just knew it. The door swung open and a familiar voice spoke.
“You're a long way from Stuttgart, Ludwig.”
12 cartoonists were killed today in France, just for drawing pictures of the Islam prophet Muhammad. What kind of world do we live in where people are killed just for drawing cartoons? Why do people feel the need to kill over something so trifling? Over something so stupid?
This just sickens me. It's despicable. And honestly, it's part of why I am so against religion. Because religious beliefs should not mean more to people than human lives.
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.
I am a "Misplaced German"; I was born in the US but I swear I should have been born in Germany.
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.
I'm an atheist. I have absolutely no respect for religion, but I do try to respect religious people, as long as you don't try to force it on me.
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.
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.
