MadisenMusic's Skip and the Turtle post was just too adorable to not illustrate so here's me giving into the voices. In my head. Right. Anyway, I saw swaylooza's Skip and loved the design so I borrowed that. :)
Was about to just post the line art but decided to try coloring. Eeep. Huzzah to experimenting! And I'm not sure about the title. Should I have put a "RE:" or something? Not sure how this works.
Aaaaand... I should sleep. I'm rarely this chatty here. Again, check out MadisenMusic's Skip and the Turtle! :D
PS The Jumpin Jack font I used is free (from http://misstiina.com/fonts/), so long as it's for NON-PROFIT use. Sooo. There. I think I'll change the font, just to be safe. As soon as I get some shut-eye, that is.
We bang against the pipe
Hoping to be heard
The morse code of our
and stray thoughts
Not always the same
But there, always there
We strike the hollow cylinder
And tap, tap, tap
We are here.
This would end differently – I know it’s a dream in the first place.
I am behind a door. The room is pitch black. I feel nothing behind me but space and hear nothing but the whispers to not look back, so I don’t. Instead I keep my eyes on the bright outline of this door. I see the shadow cast when someone stands on the other side and leaves.
It is quiet on the other side. I turn the knob, push the door, and look out into a familiar room. There is a girl sitting on the floor with her back towards me.
“They won’t get you here,” she says.
