Petals and Ash: Sub-Chapter
    Olympus: Before Hades Damnation
    Our bodies remained rigid and our breathes reside only in our lungs as this soldier and I had taken the like of Gargoyles, never letting our eyes peer away from the glittering gates of gold that embraced Gods and Goddess’ alike with open arms… Or, in the least, they had.
    “No!” I cried out to the lifeless force that shredded any hope I had in returning to my dwellings. “This is impossible!” Fumbling to gain the cold metal bars in my hands, I did only what I knew a powerless refugee had been capable of; rattling the gates in hope that they would open wide at my strength. Of course my attempts had been for not and hardly worth my lacking energy while the lock remained sealed off from the outside world to which my companion and I had unfortunately been stranded to.
    “There has to be some misunderstanding! I

Heart Demised
She woke into a family of love.
Forever surrounded in a cast of devotion,
Superior embraces and a heart full of emotion.
She never knew the life outside the walls her family had constructed.
A world filled with nothing but shadows and destruction.
She was different, they told her. “A light that could brighten the world from a cloudy day...”
A light the shadows and thieves might silence and steal away.
A flower in a field of weeds, meant to succeed in a world of make believe!
She dreamed with a sparkle in her eye as the pen in her hand fought quickly to scribe.
Every day, the beating organ that inspired her to create grew and grew till it could hold no more!
...But, suddenly her walls were ambushed!
Wracked to rubble and stones!
“She was different,” they said.
But this time, the little girl was quickly seized as they hid the light and its glow…
She wore her heart out on her sleeve, clear for those all to see.
Big, bright and so willing to give a home to tho

Petals and Ash Part V
(Persephone POV)   
 Darkness… Nothing around me but darkness.
    I can’t move!
    Why can’t I feel any of my limbs?
    I feel cold… as though I’ve been submerged into a frozen lake during the height of the Solstice.
    My breath is empty, if -at all- existent.
    I’m lost in the darkness and I feel nothing but the pain of a very far off and distant memory.
    “Daemon!” I cried, shaking him with no avail. “Come on, Daemon! Wake up!”
    The jagged movements from his body are only supplied by the desperation of my fists that I fill with his chainmail suit, pleading the heart in his chest to thrum against my quaking palms. The warmth of his smile to melt the ice that has begun to freez

Goodnight Moon
   It has come suddenly: an hour of the night that becomes far too late for any normal human being. With this recognition of time also come the small chores of retiring the lights to their slumbers as the faces that flash against a screen dim till they all but disappear into the realm of technology.
   Like most nights, the air outside had been most pleasant that it seemed silly to confine myself into a box without letting it dance across the hardwood floors only to escape right out the back. Unfortunately, it’s stupid luck for a girl like me to make herself vulnerable to the dangers of the wildlife outside her window and doors. So, with the slightest tinge of remorse, I let my hand push the back door calmly into the latch where a silent click reassures me that I’m safe till the next morning.
   Finally, turning off the last light and gathering the things that are to return with me to my quarters, I retreat to the last and final door repeating

Personal Quote: "What doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger..."

Honestly, you can probably type Lilachiccups into any social media (except for Facebook) and find me. I tend to favor this one with my updates, but you never know.
To give you a list of ones I use more often...:
Tumblr: adaytobreakingmyvalentine.tumb… (Mostly my fandoms, some art)
  • Listening to: Dignity - Bullet For My Valentine
  • Reading: Random Manga/Books
  • Watching: ... My life flash before my eyes
  • Playing: Music
  • Eating: Skillet Enchiladas (SO good! :D)
  • Drinking: Water
  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    It's varied. I had been on DA prior to using this account, but to be more exact, I'll say about 5 years.

  2. What does your username mean?
    I honestly have this question so many times and every time I try to explain it, I always come back and say "it's and inside story with me and my friend :iconledollface:"

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    I like to think I'm kind, passionate and -at times- weird. But in all honesty, who isn't?

  4. Are you left or right handed?
    Definitely Right handed... although, I've been trying to become ambidextrous for a couple years now.

  5. What was your first deviation?
    Courtney and Edward by lilachiccups Its a drawing I did for me and my friend of our two OC's together. I'd like to tell you more about these two, but for security reasons, I'll keep my mouth shut. :]

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    Literature. While I'll never deny my love of paper and pencil (even though I find myself asking "why do I even try?" sometimes) in the end, the work I'm more proud of and happy with comes from the pictures I paint with my words.

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    My mind instantly said "Digital Art" but I wish I could master musical instruments. Like, instantly being able to play my guitar, violin, piano, etc. I think that more than my other creative styles is the one I would truly want to fully grasp.

  8. What was your first favourite?
    I'm not certain. A long time ago, before we had the "search favourites" option, I had this URGE to put everything in a folder so that I could find what I was looking for. In the end, I never found it, but if I remember correctly, the first thing I ever favourited was  [stock] Mystic woods by DominikaAniola Or something like it.

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    Digital and mixed media. I always find it so fascinating what it is people can do with their tablets and pencils COMBINED.

  10. Who is your all-time favourite deviant artist?
    I'm not going to say one of my friends because that is just way to easy and it could cause something that I do NOT want to start. But, I think if I really had to pick just one person... I'd have to say I always go back to sandara . She's the reason why I have a story. One of her own original works inspired me to write a story that I guarantee no other piece could have motivated me the way hers did. And while I still love so many people on here for so many different reasons, Sandara continues to inspire and set me in awe with every new piece she posts. If you're reading this, thank you. :D Truly :heart:

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    ... I'm not certain. I would like to meet a few pen-pals of mine that no longer are as active just to see if they are alright and if they're happy now, but in a general speaking, I think I'm okay with the screen as my barrier to my watchers, my favourite artists and random individuals on here.

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    Impacted my life? Again I would have to say friends. One friend in particular LeDollface She knows why, or perhaps she doesn't... Either way, of all deviants, I'd have to pick her.

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    Sketchbook, pencils, eraser... sometimes a tablet, Gimp 2.6 (Because 2.8 sucks!)... but both of them require my iTunes or music in general.

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    ... I don't think I have one certain place that is "inspirational" to me, but I tend to write/draw more in my living room or my bedroom. So I guess those two places would be my "inspiration."

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    The first time I ever hit more than 100 favourites for one submission. I had comments coming from left and right, watchers adding me every time I refreshed the page, favorites coming out of my ying-yang... it was so cool for me. I remember exactly where I was, what was going on at the time and how I felt.
    Care To Join Us? by lilachiccups It happened in LESS than an hour and I about cried of excitement. While, I knew it wasn't technically my own art, it was my very first time ever using digital media to color a photo and I was so proud of what I had done that to have people like it so instantaneously, it blew me out of the water... no pun intended. I was so excited that people really enjoyed something I had helped create. And before you ask, yes. I was given permission from the artist to color and post it. It's something silly to me now, but I still remember that feeling of just... "ahhhh..." To this day, it is STILL one of my most popular pieces in my gallery next to P&A.
