This is an excellent chapter. :D I love the tension you've got building between these two (I still think it's hilariously unfair to Conn...

The crew behind Autodesk Sketchbook is doing this thing for #Inktober where they release a free, new Sketchbook brushset every Monday. May I just say that I approve greatly, and that I absolutely ADORE their "Messy" set? Their Sumi-e is really nice, too. If you're interested in seeing the results of some of those brushes, you're welcome to check out my profile. My two most recent posts- the first features Bucky Barnes, and the second features a scene from my original story- were done using the "messy" brushset. It takes some getting used-to, and the UI is different than Adobe Photoshop's, but it's fun, creative, and if you don't get hung up on the details, it's easier to get your concepts down on the digital paper than it ever was in Photoshop or on paper. (At least, without using a brush to be deliberately messy.) Then again, I'm a perfectionist at heart, so maybe that's just me.

Just sayin'.

Life is just about as normal as it can be, considering all the upheaval that's going on around the country. I'm working 40 hours a week at the same job, working on my original story, and making some life changes for the better. Homemade shampoo, oil cleansing instead of soap for my face, homemade deodorant, and so forth, and all in all, I feel better than I have in a while. Maybe that's just the pride of making my own stuff talking, but there's something satisfying in making a lip balm that works better than store-bought for less than half the price.

Meanwhile, the tensions in this country continue to build. It seems especially prevalent, where I live, though again, that might just be because it's where I live. It should say something about St. Louis, MO that I'm more accustomed to seeing on the news that "A man was gunned down in North City last night at about 5 a.m." than I am to seeing "The Backstoppers are holding a concert tonight to benefit the families of officers fallen in the line of duty".

Stop this planet, I want off!

But seriously, when did it become acceptable or normal that a police officer is putting his or her life on the line whenever he or she pulls someone over for a routine traffic stop? A cop was shot in the head and killed without provocation Thursday morning in South St. Louis. Officer Flamion was shot and paralyzed from the neck down when he pulled over a man for speeding. Color has nothing to do with my outrage, here. It doesn't matter what color their skin is. They're all dying. It scares and sickens me, because I have family who are or were on the force. Does that make me weak, to want safety for myself, my family, and the men and women whose primary directive is "to serve and protect"?

I never thought I'd honestly say this (I always thought it was a pathetic, whiny sort of thing to say), but I say it now because I'm just so sick of all the B.S. that's going around.

Why can't we all just get along?


So, first poll: Would anyone be interested in reading and critiquing the prologue of my original story? 

1 deviant said Sure!
No deviants said Hell yes!
No deviants said Uh, sure, why not?
No deviants said I guess?
No deviants said Um, I don't really have the time...
No deviants said Ew. Gross. Please don't.
No deviants said Heck no!
