Grief by CrypticGrin Grief by CrypticGrin
It's not often I decide to do vent art, but when a strong emotion like this one hits you, you can't just wallow in it. (If you're wondering why she's naked it's just a part of the feeling of such a raw emotion. Any mask you might have been wearing fades, you cry as yourself. Always. )

If you read my newest journal entry (here: [link] ) you know that one of my good friends on gaiaonline just passed away due to a rare type of tumor.

I didn't know Futa THAT well, but we RPed on Gaia for a couple of years, which dew us pretty close with our scheming and whatnot. *smiles nostalgically* Anyway, when I was checking through my messages on Gaia, I found a few guild announcements that shocked me... Futa was dead. It felt so surreal. I hadn't gotten on Gaia in about five days or so, and when I did... I found out something that sad. *lets out a deep breath* I tried very hard to keep from crying for my sake and those around me, but in the end, I let it all out in the form of art.

You will be dearly missed, Jessica.

I would dedicate a song to this, but I find that too cliche' to remember someone by, so I'll just tell you I'm calming down listening to some soothing Snow Patrol. ^^

Any trolls that are feeling cocky and decide to comment will regret ever finding this piece. I'm not in the mood to deal with you today. That doesn't mean you'll get a response, but I will find a way to make you pay for disgracing her memory.

Yeah...you go and calm yourself down. I just thought i'd ask again and see if you were okay. Because...I can't ignore a friend who's really troubled by...well...a friend passing a way. But, well..yeah. Self explanatory. Just thought you needed someone to talk to is all.

I'm fine now. ^^ Thank you. Drawing this seemed to lift all of that grief away. I'll miss her, but it won't beat me down like it did. *flexes nonexistent muscles* I'm a tough one when I want to be! ^^

Heh...wish it was easier for me. I can't draw, and well...I choose when i want to write or not. Hmm, but I shouldn't be talking about this. Not really a good time.

xD What are you talking about? You can raw!! That's the reason I started watching your original account in the first place! ^^ You just need to keep practicing!

I'm okay, though. ^^ Really. There is nothing you need to worry about.

People just made those drawings for me. I never drew em in the first place. That's just the reality of it. I CAN'T. People just have to accept that, and move on. Practicing at something you are never good at is...pointless.

Alright, just making sure.

I could have sworn I have seen something you drew before and I liked it. >.> Hm, It's been a long time so I'm probably just mistaken. ^^ Anyway, you have other skills you could vent with. ^^ You can actually get a lot of stress out by just writing what is on your mind into an abstract sort of story. ^^ I used to write all the time and suck at drawing, many many years ago. Whenever I was stressed back then I would write a story about it.

Anyway, I'm rambling. ^^; I should be heading to bed but now it seems like you need someone to talk to. Are you alright?

The thing about writing is, you have to know what to write about. And with all these things going through my head, I just...don't know how to explain any of it. So much happens, you can't stop to take it in, because it gets too overwhelming. That is why I can't write vents. I don't know the words to put down. Even when I try, nothing comes up. Art...I can't draw. I just can't. I mean, there's SOME I can draw, but its little doodles of stuff here and there. Symbols and stuff. That's it.

Its fine if you ramble. Everyone does it. As for me being alright...i'll live. I ain't feeling too great, but i'll live.
