Kaeli
It was dawn when the Lord’s Compass pulled into harbor. Large white birds spun around the ship’s three masts, crying shrilly.
Kaeli stood in a shadowy place under the stairway on deck, far out of the way so the crewmen could work uninterrupted. She should have been below deck with the rest of the passengers, but she couldn’t stand the stuffiness. And besides that, everyone always gave her odd, even bitter, looks. Perhaps because of her special treatment by the Western Lord, or perhaps because of her status as a slave. Likely both. Lord Keith had sensed her discomfort and often allowed her to hide from their unfriendly stares up on top.
Kaeli kept her left hand—hidden by a gray silk glove, despite the sweltering heat of early summer—close to her chest, gently cradling the only possession she had brought with her from the East, wrapped snuggly in a thin blanket. Her other hand, ungloved, touched the smooth, planked wall on her right as she looked out

I Know
They say in Spring the fields will be green,
But they cannot be as green as her eyes.
They say in Summer flocks of birds sing,
But their voices will never be as beautiful as hers.
They say in Autumn the air smells sweet,
But I know her smile is sweeter.
I know in Winter the days are long and cold,
But endure them, please... 'Cause Spring will come soon.

Conquered
Listen with fingertips caressing the window
Fluttering heartbeats, keening for life
Drumming
Weeping
Raining
Listen with bare feet careening across the floor
Hysteric breaths, feathers falling
Striking
Screaming
Fleeing
Listen with hair strewn on the pillow
Gossamer wings, combating the wind
Falling
Restraining
Drowning
Listen with your ear to a shell
Boundless sea of heartbeats forgotten
Pleading
Diminishing
…Conquered.

The Cake Calamity
Cole wanted cake.
Zane, who usually made cake every Saturday, was out visiting his father in New Ninjago City. That left Cole, Jay, Lloyd, and Kai alone and without their precious dessert.
But Cole was so hungry for cake! He could just taste it now: fluffy, moist, chocolate with vanilla icing. Sugary and divine.
"Why don't you stop moping and make it yourself?" asked Kai from his seat across the table from Cole, who was pushing crumbs around his dinner plate.
"Yeah!" Jay leaped to his feet and ran into the kitchen. Returning a moment later with a recipe book, he flipped it open. "Right here, Cole. See?"
There it was, in all its glory. What a beautiful picture. Cole licked his lips.
"Let's do this," he said.
In the kitchen, Cole started giving orders. "Lloyd, Kai, you're in charge of the frosting. Jay and I will make the cake."
Kai shrugged. "Sounds good."
They got down to business. Jay gathered the ingredients they needed. Cole tasted each before adding it to the bowl.
"Extra sugar," h

"Kai!" Lloyd cried, barreling into the bedroom. "Kai, come quick!"
Kai sighed, setting down his comb. He reached for his hair gel. "What is it, kid? I'm kinda busy here."
Breathless, Lloyd pointed down the hall. "It's an emergency," he said. "Jay and Cole are..." He trailed off, watching Kai's fingers form a spike above his right ear. "...Whatcha doing?"
"My hair," Kai answered, squinting into the mirror. "What's Jay and Cole's emergency?"
"Uh...s'not that big of a deal..." Lloyd seemed enraptured by the way Kai molded his hair- laying dull and flat around his ears- into those spikes. "How do you do that, Kai?"
"It's a delicate process," Kai said absently. "One that requires a handful of hair gel and a generous dose of pure ninja awesomeness."
"Well...you've got hair gel," Lloyd said. "And I've got plenty of awesomeness, what, being the Green Ninja and all, so...maybe you could t

Noel
Since when was I able to draw??? What's going on?

Meet Lady Noel. Black hair, cloudy blue eyes. Twenty two winters, music aficionado. Born with congenital cataracts in both eyes, she can catch occasional shadows in her vision- usually just in her right eye, which was affected slightly less severely than her left. 

In year 633, she travels to Keitorin with her parents and meets Lord Keith. They are married in the summer of year 634- (see her earring?) Due to undisclosed reasons they are unable to conceive, though, and eventually adopt children. The dog, Momo, is unreasonably happy about this development and is so freaking protective of those childs, you have no idea. 

See her here: www.fanfiction.net/s/11155760/…

Rako
My take on :iconmidnightshadowrider:'s OC, Rako, from her fic Preeminent Rising! Former apprentice of Clouse, this adorable chiold is a brilliant sorcerer- and also a werewolf. Yeahh, he's awesome. 

Kira Vulpes' fic can be found here: www.fanfiction.net/s/11594945/…

Can you tell I was drawing with a crappy pen? Yeah, I don't know where my nice ones are.

Kyle
Dang, this turned out better than I expected. 

Sooo... Kyle! :3 He's happy with his new facial hair. 

The paper I drew him on, though. Ugh. Way too textured. Sorry about that.

13 things about me: 

1) Hmm... My favorite colors are sage green, champagne pink, and maroon. 
2) I have an undercut, and my hair is dyed with oil spill colors. 
3) My bedroom's colors are sage green, teal, black, and gray. 
4) I have a desk in my room. ...Thing is, I haven't actually sat at it in nearly a year, partially due to the presence of plants and a fish tank. Currently I've got some succulents (my jades are particularly happy right now), orchids, a poinsettia, and a pitiful little forget-me-not that's been trying without much success to grow for like, months. It's living a tormented half-life and I'm not sure what to do about it. :| (Blank Stare) 
5) Once, when I was maybe thirteen years old, I read the Lord of the Rings trilogy three times...in about one month. I kid you not, I had a schedule on my calendar where I charted how fast I was able to read each book, and I gave myself goals. I read each book a little faster each time. 
6) I uh... I really, really love Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast. It's just...yeah, it's a kids movie, but it's beautiful, and darnit I cried so hard the first time I watched it...and the second time...and the third... 
7) Apparently it's not common knowledge that I own a cat. So there. I do. His name is Trigger, and he's an old butt- I mean, mutt. But he's so cute. His best friend is Clyde, who is a ragdoll. (Look it up, seriously. Softest fur ever.) 
8) I love tea. A lot. GASP. Speaking of which, I haven't had any yet today! Whoa, I've been slow. Haven't really eaten, either... 
9) I have stressful dreams. They usually involve things such as me driving the car directly into obstacles, or getting injured. Which is weird, because I really don't think I'm that anxious in real life. ...Yeah, let's just say I haven't had an awesome lucid dream in forever. People talk about how they can fly in dreams or whatever... Yeah, I float. Barely. And I'm confined to my living room, where I have to avoid the ceiling fan when I finally get far enough off the ground to potentially hit it. 
Actually! One time I was inside a huge greenhouse, and I had a jetpack so I could fly. It was awesome. But then these "bad guys" were chasing after me, and it got kinda stressful after that. XD I'm usually not terrified of my dreams, though. I just wake up slightly miffed.
10) I have rabbits. Their names are Momo, Sebastian (I usually call him "Seb" or "Buddy"), Tina, and Bliss. 
11) I didn't actually read the Harry Potter series until recently. Just finished the last book this week, in fact. 
12) I like to draw. But I currently suck at it, and I don't have the time or interest to resurrect my old skills. 
13) I love the LoZ games. Unfortunately, I'm really late to the whole thing (never had much interest when I was younger), and I've only been able to play the Wii games so far. My goal is to one day be rich enough, and have enough time, to play all of the games, on all of their consoles. 

And now, StoneByrd's questions... 

1. What's your favorite story? Movie/TV show/book/play/bedtime story/etc. 
Awh, a hard question straight off the bat. If we're talking aside from the Bible, then... The Stormlight Archive. It's an incredibly deep, beautiful story that has greatly influenced my writing. 
2. What's your favorite genre of music/song? 
I don't really have a favorite genre- I'm all over the place. XD At the moment my most recently played shows some Florian Bur, Owl City, FK&C (always and forever), Taylor Davis, and Walk off the Earth, and the Breath of the Wild soundtrack. 

Favorite song, though? Probably To the Dreamers, by FK&C. 

3. Burrito or taco?
Depends on how you define both. I say burrito with all the taco fixings. Don't skimp, I want the meat beans and guac oozing out of it when I take a bite. 
4. You're getting your hair done into an extreme style. Tell me about it. 
Umm... I'd get a pixie with an undercut that goes from above one ear, all the way back to the base of the other ear, if that makes sense. I don't know the technical terms for all this stuff. The reason I don't do this is because I have thick, curly hair that would NOT behave if it were short. 
5. What's your favorite time of year? 
The peak of summer. Imagine a hot, sunny day after a rainstorm; you can smell the earth, the birds are singing, and there's a humid, slightly cool breeze blowing through the brush. 
6. What makes you smile? 
Ohhh... Messages from good friends. Sunsets. Singing along to a good song. Finishing a good book. Completing a difficult (but oh-so-worth-it) and emotional chapter in my story. 
7. What's your wardrobe like? 
I have about five T-shirts that I wear and wash regularly. My favorite is a Stormlight Archive shirt in which reads "Would you like to destroy some evil today?" with little 8-bit images of Szeth and Nightblood. I have one pair of skinny jeans that I wear every day (I probably shouldn't say how often those get washed), and super colorful socks. I'm not kidding you, the pair I'm wearing currently is highlighter-pink with highlighter-purple stripes. For shoes, Converse or high-heeled boots, depending on my mood (and how cold it is outside). All my everyday overshirts are plaid- but unfortunately, I only have three of them, and two have recently developed terrible, unfixable holes in the elbows. I need to go shopping. :( 
8. What color are your eyes? 
Um...green and brown? It varies with the lighting. 
9. Milk, white, or dark chocolate?
Dark.
10. What's your favorite dessert in general? 
Argh don't make me decide. Well, one of my friends makes the most amazing homemade cakes (one of her more recent recipes had cookie dough frosting). I also love ice cream. Don't you dare give me anything with hard chunks, though! I love the types with lots of fudge, cookie dough, or caramel. 
11. Do you play any instruments? 
Technically, I play piano? I've got intermediate skill there, but zero patience- if I can't play a song, both hands, on the first go, I generally don't pursue it. I have no desire to get better, I just enjoy playing the music- it's like singing along with my favorite song/soundtrack, but with my fingers! 
12. What do you want to be when you grow up? 
I will never grow up. 
Hah. In all seriousness, I would love to pursue a career at a small bakery or restaurant. I love cooking/baking. 
13. Who's your hero? 
I... Darn, I don't really have one. At least, not consciously. Maybe that aforementioned baking friend, and her husband. They're amazing people. 

I'm being naughty and not making my own questions. Take the ones from above for this tag. :) (Also, don't feel obligated to do this tag if you don't want to!)

Tagging mah followers. <3 (Besides StoneByrd and PastelGreys, 'cause they've already been tagged by others)
