To A Stranger
“To a stranger, never open the door,”
Thou hath instilled in me since I was young,
But lo!—Innocence doth guard me no more,
Not after the song Experience sung.
‘Twas signed by thee, that mean missive of light
That sent this poor fool to greet the young broad,
Who under Dark’s cover showed me a sight
Most private in steed from Troy ‘cross the road.
Then back to her band of inebriated
Abettors she ran, the nameless pert miss;
To thee, thy sick itch assurèdly sated,
Whilst I—betrayed!—requite thee with this:
       Now only come in if thou hast the key,
       For Mother, thou art a stranger to me.

Major Complications (A 'Black Throne' FanFic)
The moment John Major saw his extremely pregnant second wife waddling down the aisle, fierce brown eyes sweeping over the seats of the second-class sci-fi-themed train carriage, he knew that the jig was up.
The man wearing the black helmet and cape across the aisle from John turned to look at John’s extremely pregnant second wife, probably with an expression of bewilderment on his face, although John couldn’t really tell with the helmet obscuring the man’s visage.
While the woman waddled furiously down the aisle toward the black-clad bystander who had quite unfortunately drawn her attention, John Major surreptitiously pulled his cap down low over his brow and bent over to untie and retie his shoes.
A few days ago, commencing his most drastic plan yet, John Major had legally changed his name to Garth McLoin in hopes that this would deter his second wif

The Straight Man's Burden
Take up the Straight Man’s burden–
Put down the rebel breed–
Go bid your sons to exile
Their hearts’ impious need;
Teach your children to repress
The fluttered folk and wild,
The liberal-minded lovers
Ye formerly reviled.
Take up the Straight Man’s burden–
Despite the turning tide,
To join in common error
And check the show of Pride;
By potent speech most rightful
Our protests they restrain,
But ye can keep them silent
With constant threat of pain.
Take up the Straight Man’s burden–
The world will not know peace
Lest ye purge the populace
And bid the sickness cease;
And when your goal is nearest,
The end to others sought,
Watch untold sympathizers
Bring all your hopes to naught.
Take up the Straight Man’s burden–
Protest same-sex weddings.
(Though Pope Francis seems to be
Benignant toward such things.)
The politicians banter,
Just waiting to be led,
Go coax them with your livings,
And choke the right to wed.
Take up the Straig

Radioactive - The Fallout
It was time. The critical moment of decision. It had all been leading up to this.
Maicey’s brow furrowed and a bead of sweat trickled down the side of her face. She stood frozen in the glow of the radioactive device in her hands, finger hovering, trembling over the button that would change the course of human history. Fierce brown eyes bore intensely into the display of the device, a million thoughts racing behind them through her mind as she weighed the options. Should I do it? Should I push this button? Or should I leave and try to forget any of this ever happened? But how could I forget this?
There was a series of soft taps. Footsteps. Maicey held her breath, praying she wouldn’t be discovered. Her wide eyes flickered from the display to the crack in the door, watching for the other person in the room. She saw the silhouette of a woman pass by, a dim halo of fluorescent light tracing the edges of her figure, heels clicking like gunshots on the cold, hard floor. Ma

Serenity. Blissful hills of green grass, speckled with bright rhododendrons, daisies, tulips, other flowers and shrubs that I cannot name. But mostly, there is tall, lustrous grass. Strangely, there are no trees. Not even a bush. The hills of these spring colored plants roll on endlessly beneath a sky of robin’s egg blue, unadorned by any puffs of clouds. This is where I am, where I should be. It feels right.
I stroll at a leisurely pace to the crest of one such hill, and slowly spin a full 360 degrees, taking in everything around me. I notice splotches of red staining the mostly green surrounding me. Blazing crimson, shining like overripe empire apples in the glistening sun. They spark a memory, and I feel my mind tugged. The memory nags at me. Where are the people? I wondered. Why am I alone? Then the memories come back, and I collapse to my knees in one of the patches of blood-red flowers that sprinkled the scenic countryside.
What have I done?

Loyal-Scarlet's Profile Picture
L Scarlet
Artist | Student | Varied

Hello, dearie, and welcome to my humble profile!
My name is L! (Just the letter, it's not an initial — and no, it bears no relation to the Death Note L, although I do love that series dearly! Just a happy coincidence~)

I'm a lover of all kinds of art forms, and from time to time I like to upload some of my creations here on dA. My favourite works are any that tell a story, so you'll see most of my deviations are literature—but I've done other things, too! If you look around my gallery, you'll find some healthy variety. And then there are the Book Codes, which kind of defy categorization... they are just pieces of myself that I'd like to share with others but haven't worked up the courage to yet.

I'm INFJ, 19, my birthday is March 18th (Pisces~!), and although I'm kind of reticent in person, I love talking to people online~ I'm so much more eloquent with a keyboard than my voice. >_<

Oh, and if you're wondering, my icon is a Baudot code, as seen on Coldplay's album covers during their X&Y era. You can find a key here.

Instagram @ l_scarlet…

FYI, while I do appreciate receiving llamas, I do not do llama trades, least of all when the deviant who gave me one already has about a million of their own. Sorry, but I kind of think "llama-for-llama" is a silly and meaningless thing. That said, I do always check out the profile of every deviant who gives me a llama, and when I like what I see, then I return the llama.
Has it really been almost two years? Wow, I seem to have nearly abandoned my journals... well, I wasn't TOTALLY absent from deviantart. I have been checking messages and things, even though I haven't uploaded many new deviations... but I do have things I'd like to upload soon! Not sure when, but I will eventually. xD

If you've visited my pages in the distant past, then you may have noticed that many of my pages are... missing. Well, I started doing some housecleaning recently; tidying up submissions, getting rid of old deviations. I'm generally shooting to reinvent my dA page, to clean up the mess my immature self left in its wake several years past. It'll take a while to hit every last detail, but I'm chipping away at it bit by bit over the weeks.

In other news, I'm writing a novel! As in, an actual, feature-length book, to be printed and read in hardcover format! I've been working on it since fall of 2014, when I came up with the idea. Currently, I'm about 40,000 words in (plus some additional 15,000 words of notes, plot details, research, et cetera... xD I'm putting an inordinate amount of thought into its preparation. I want it to be perfect~). Sorry, though, it's something of a passion project, so I probably won't be posting much about it here. It's supposed to be a gift exclusively for my close friends. Well, maybe after I've finished this reinventing stuff I'll post excerpts or graphics that I've made to accompany the text. We'll see.

More news: I have some new social media now! You can find me on Instagram @ L_Scarlet and my personal tumblr is similarly "loyalscarlet". (But I plan to make another one soon and to change the names; one personal, one for book and art related things.) On my Instagram, I've been keeping an up-to-date list of the books that I'm currently reading, if you're interested in that. Which brings me to that last topic of discussion...

Oh my. How many books have I read in the past two years? Dozens and dozens, no doubt... I will probably forget a whole bunch, but here goes nothing...

In no particular order:

  • Library Wars (Vols. 11–14, although I may have reread the whole series again at some point)
  • Percy Jackson's Greek Gods
  • Percy Jackson's Greek Heroes
  • The Heroes of Olympus (Books 4 and 5)
  • The Red Pyramid (Just started rereading that one!)
  • The First Battle (Warriors: Dawn of the Clans #3)
  • Durarara!! Yellow Scarves Arc (All three volumes)
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Rift
  • City of Glass (The Mortal Instruments #3)
  • Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices #1)
  • On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft (by Stephen King)
  • Steal Like an Artist
  • The Legend of Korra: The Art of the Animated Series (All four books)
  • The Great Zoo of China
  • The Tournament
  • Troll Mountain
  • Let It Snow
  • Blue is the Warmest Color
  • This Star Won't Go Out
  • The Angel of Elhamburg
  • Chikubushima
  • S. (otherwise known as Ship of Theseus, by J.J. Abrams and Doug Dorst; I've only just started.)
  • Catch-22
  • Invisible Man
  • The Insider (Kingdom Keepers #7)
  • The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel (Whole series)
  • Toccata II (by Shilin Huang)
  • The Collectors (by Philip Pullman)
  • Ripped Wings: Jesza's Journey (by Odia Kane)
  • Bionic Punchline (by Damon L. Wakes)
  • Osiris Likes This (also by Mr. Wakes)
  • Tallstar's Revenge
  • More Sherlock Holmes... don't remember which volume I'm on...
  • Janson's History of Art (that's for school... this book is gargantuan o_o)
  • Demigods & Magicians (AKA the short triptych of crossover stories that Rick Riordan wrote)
  • Gaia (this is a really great webcomic I started reading; definitely check it out!)
  • Carciphona (while I'm listing webcomics~)
  • Cut Time (another webcomic, and this one's just starting out! The art is very pretty, though it can be tough to follow at times... I think it's just the art style, but it is very pretty art~ The first chapter was just completed, and I'm expecting really great things to follow! Looks very promising!)
  • The Hogwarts Library (three slim volumes that come from within the Harry Potter world)
  • Lyra's Oxford
  • Once Upon a Time in the North
  • Lost in Babylon (Seven Wonders #2)
  • Heart of Darkness
  • Death of a Salesman
  • Of Mice and Men

And then, by my latest count, I have 52 more books in my "to-read" pile. I'm basically getting books faster than I can read them right now. xD I did some quick figures and it's probably going to take me quite a number of years to whittle that pile back down to nothing. So, I think I'm going to put myself on a spending freeze for books lmbo. Well, unless people give me more Barnes & Noble gift cards, then I kind of have to use them. I will do my best, though, to stop buying books after I get Harry Potter and the Cursed Child this summer!! It is going to be difficult, but it's for the greater good... I must read what I already have... sigh... lol, wish me luck.

  • Listening to: my damned id
  • Reading: currently, Clockwork Angel and The Red Pyramid
  • Watching: everything crumble around me
  • Playing: myself
  • Eating: vegetarian now~
  • Drinking: Earl Grey
