In the crystal and blood palace, within the room marked 208, a small mountain of fabric decorated the floor. The blood beneath the crystal glowed so intensely that it cast a pink hue through white cloth--out of the corner of the eye, it might look like it were stained with blood. The collection of fabric was massive because its owner didn't feel confident in his three dimensional art skills, and he figured he'd have to take a number of passes at his assignment before it came out good enough for his standards.

The most important ingredient was a single strand of hair that sat on the floor beside the fabric. It was dark, easily visible against the crystal and red, and when the light hit it just so, it almost seemed to cast a bronze color.

Oleander didn't consider himself a very confrontational being. While some people were capable of attacking others with their fists or offensive magic skills, he preferred to work in the darkness, where the evidence of his misgivings would never come to light. He didn't want to assault those who hurt him--no, unlike those who enjoyed sticking their enemies with knives, he'd prick them with a bit of poison and watch them go through the remainder of their short life in agony before they passed. Watching suffering from a distance thrilled him.

The student sketched out a form on paper sitting in front of him. He felt like he'd grown jaded over the years he'd been here. Maybe at one point he'd been happy and looked to the positive side of things, but now he just wanted to do what he'd come here to do. Otherworlde Academy had not advertised itself as a place of kindness and joy, and when he'd first enrolled, he'd known that morals would be thrown to the dogs. Maybe he should have stuck with that in the beginning - he'd first enrolled with hexing, right? And there was no mystery that department pulsed with anger. Even the little professor who taught it, innocent and gentle as he looked, was clearly a ball of rage.

The pattern drawn in front of him was human shaped--it looked almost like those little dolls that children would carry, with the too-big heads and the small bodies out of proportion. He picked up the pattern and plopped himself down next to the mountain of fabric, then started pinning black and white pieces to the paper and sketching it onto the partially see-through material. Soon as that was done, he cut it out, then squinted at the shape provided. No, it'd look like an alien when he sewed it. Back to the drawing board -- the outline needed to be wider to work with the sewn hemline. That's what they called it, right? Hell, he didn't know, he was a visual artist, not a craftsperson.

A couple times later, and he finally got the body to look more like a person and less like an alien. He'd learned in his classes that voodoo dolls didn't have to look like their targets -- no, there just had to be something in them, or on them, that would connect them to the person they were meant to represent. In a matter of hierarchy, bone was the strongest connector to doll and flesh, allowing one to break the bones, to lacerate, to kill -- but getting bone from someone wouldn't be an easy task, unless he happened upon someone's knocked out teeth or something. Blood was in the midrange, providing a solid and strong connection, allowing bruising, but it was also an ingredient he wouldn't be able to get his hands on. On the lower levels of connective materials were such things as hair, bits of clothing, which could yield those little flashes of pain or headache that everyone experienced every once in a while... they would do in a pinch, though the connection might suffer. He wasn't really in a position to be picky.

The student stuffed the single hair into the sewn together body, then the remainer of the fluff that went within. A quick sewing job later and he had a slightly misshapen doll, white and black in appearance. It was just a doll, just a doll, wasn't it? But with the hexing-intuned senses he'd built through his time in the hexing department, he could feel the claws of voodoo magic stretching out to make that connection.

I could go after you, he thought, packing away the rest of the fabric into a container to push under his bed. He didn't like clutter. But I have an even better idea, why not go after someone you care about? The bastard deserved it, anyway.
Small gray hands placed a four inch black candle in its holder, pressing down to make sure it was sturdy. The dim light, visible only from a cracked open window, traced the outline of the candle, illuminating every ridge and bump. Though the room was empty, the student felt he heard whispers in the corners, the quiet murmuring of magic stirring and coming to life. Though the student didn't have much magic ability, the energy around him could sense his intention, like a spiritual entity answering the first utterance of a prayer.

The candle was virgin, indicating it hadn't been used before. The wick, perfect and untouched, stood straight and tall, ready to accept the hot breath of fire. With a slight sniffle, the boy remembered the warning he'd been given about using candles tainted by existing energy. It could ruin a spell -- or worse, twist its purpose, and Oleander knew better than to play with chance in hexing. Some objects could pick up vibrations easily, and candles were one of them. With the skills he'd already acquired, he could sense the freshness of the candle, the willingness to accept what energy would pass through it. The only thing he wished was that he'd made the candle himself, as he didn't know the energy of the person who'd made it. Likely it was a shadow being, so perhaps it wouldn't impact the spell too much, though he also feared an unwelcome surprise.

Though maybe it'd go in the opposite direction.

"The black candle demands justice," the student murmured into the darkness. He picked up a paintbrush and dipped it in oil, then ran the bristles along the edge of the candle until each side shined and glistened in the pasty light. "It is for revenge, but I won't be dictating what that is. I use this spell to ask karma to settle the score for me."

Hexing could obviously curse someone, but Oleander wasn't sure how comfortable he felt with that decision. Not because he felt any pity for his victims -- no, but because he feared the opposite might happen, that the curse would backfire and append itself to him. He was far too cautious and unconfident in his skills to try something outright malevolent, so instead he stuck with the yellowbellied route. The spell he wanted to cast could be used for justice, for evening karma. He wasn't necessarily wishing ill will on his victim -- no, just that the scales be balanced. Good and bad karma existed, though he felt his target reflected all that bad karma warned against.

And if his spell reflected back at him due to a mistake? Well, was it hard to imagine that he deserved a little better luck? That karma should even out his life and make it better, instead of taking away everything that gave him life and purpose? No, he couldn't even trust in his life anymore, and in a way he didn't even want it. He took a deep breath and reached for the matchbox sitting beside his tools. It was time to light the flame.

"Karma, be quick and fair, bring justice to the one who has wronged me."

He closed his eyes, and behind them images flashed rapidly, an inundating parade of the source of his pain. Fingers gripping the match, he struck it and felt the hiss of the newborn flame. His mind opened up to the channels of energy flowing around him, and he directed his sorrow and anger in the direction of the candle, feeling like a violent red color was filling the inside of it in his mind's eye.

He opened his eyes to find the light glowing brighter around the silhouette of the dark candle. He reached forward and ignited the tip.

"Bring me justice."

1: You must choose only one of your OC's. Do it again if you want to use a different OC.
2: Your OC must answer every question as truthfully as possible.
3: Title the journal as "OC's Quiz".
4: When you're done tag as many people as you want.
5: Have fun!

Character: Sinclair / OW: Sinclair Year 2

1: Hi! What's your real name and nickname?
- The fuck kind of stupid question is that, can't you read? My name is Sinclair. I don't have a nickname. It's just Sinclair.

2: What's your gender?
Sinclair- Wow, I bet that's real fucking hard to figure out also. Male.

3: Interesting... What's your current age?
Sinclair- You know you could get all these answers without bugging me, right? I'm seventeen.

4: Uh huh. What's your favorite food?
Considering I don't feel all that well unless I eat what my species is named after, I think you could figure this one out for yourselves. Here's a hint: my species is blood demon, you dumbfuck.

5: And your favorite drink?
I'm not even going to dignify this stupid ass question with an answer. Read between the lines.

6: Confession time! Who's your crush/lover?
I don't have a lover! No matter what Theon wants to claim, he's full of shit and he's a liar. I don't have crushes either. I mean, sure, there are some attractive people around, but that doesn't mean I want to date them or do anything with them...

7: Aww! Have you two kissed yet?
Are you fucking talking about Theon?! NO!

8: Classic question! What's your favorite colors?
I'm sure you could figure that out by looking at me. Red. Black, I guess, gets a spot, though it's not even technically a color, it's a shade...

9: Who's your favorite author?
I guess whoever wrote 'White Magic, Black Magic, and 50 Shades of Gray'. I suspect it might have been Razik.

10: Now what's your biggest fear?
Eating any disgusting filth blood is pretty high up there, because the last thing I need is a bloodborne virus. Like this fuck Theon gave me. And it's still Sol's fault. Never giving up that grudge.

11: *stifles a giggle* I'm not laughing *bursts out laughing* Sorry. Have an embarrassing experience in your past?
Having to room with Theon is pretty embarrassing. Having to do it twice is even more so. Here I'd been hoping he'd fail so the higher level dorm would kick him out, and I'd finally be free.

12: Any siblings?
I don't really keep tabs on what my parents are doing, so maybe.

13: Almost, it's only twenty questions. Who's your hero?
I don't have a hero. No one's really done anything I find worth appreciating. Except maybe the person who invented blood banks - who's that again?

14: Okay, who's your worst enemy?
I think Theon probably counts? Yeah. He counts.

15: What would you do if your hero and your worst enemy got together?
Cheer? Theon would finally leave me alone? Perhaps forever? Definitely forever.

16: Interesting... What would you do if you met your creator?
Are you talking about my parents? I have met them, duh. I came out of one of them. Hard to not meet someone whose vagina you slide out.

17: Alright, I'll contact them right now. Done!  Now, what do you want to be when you grow up?
I think I'm pretty grown up already? But I guess I'll be some sort of sorcerer, but I'll use blood. It'd be neat that way.

18: What's your worst nightmare?
I don't think I've ever had a nightmare... wait, there was one... I woke up and found Theon leaning over me. Breathing.
Wait... that wasn't a nightmare... that actually happened...

19: What's your lifelong dream?
I don't know. I don't really have one. Being able to use blood magic sounds good enough to me. I don't aim that high.

20: What would you do if your lifelong dream came true?
I... just said I didn't have one? Try to keep up.

21: Okay, where's your favorite place to relax?
Somewhere where there is a distinct lack of Theons.

22: Favorite music?
Things Theon doesn't listen to. Shit, I don't know. I don't put much value in music.

23: Do you have any friends?
I thought this was supposed to be twenty questions? Did you forget how to count? Color me surprised... ugh, I don't know. I don't really put stock in friendships. Maybe some people consider me a friend.

24: Last question! What do you spend most of your time doing?
At this point, it'd probably be studying... going to classes... that kind of stuff. Though sleeping ranks pretty high up there too.

25: We're done! Now tag whoever you want. DO IT!
Uh, no. I don't want to tag anyone, because this quiz was stupid and a waste of time.

But I'll tag some people!

DO IT, OR DIE. Or... if you want to. Yeah. If you want to die.
It's Halloween, you can die if you want to.


You shall know the depth of my rage
You will not get any of my points
Don't bother asking

I need help on the application for Otherworlde, you know putting my character on the application to join the group, can you help me?
viralremix Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2014
Unfortunately I can't - though it's not too hard if you use SAI or Photoshop. Even a free program like Fire Alpaca or Gimp should allow you to do so with ease. Copy and paste the character with a transparent background onto the app. Or if it was scanned in, erase the background as best as possible to make sure there isn't a block of background around the character, though it doesn't have to be perfect, of course.

Hey there! Sorry for this random comment out of the blue, but I wanted to stop by your page for a bit.

I was recently on a poll about Sushi Dogs, browsing to see what it was about and saw  in the comments that you offered to give up one of your slots to someone that missed the open window to get a MYO.
I wanted to let you know that you are one of the sweetest people I have ever seen to do that for someone, and it's people like you that the world needs more of. Thanks for making someone else's day. I'm sure they'll never forget how happy you made them.

Cheers! <3

My dearest Koss,

My Internet is down on the unfortunate day all tournament submissions are due.... ( :iconlazycryplz: ) I don't know what do say/do. Tomorrows Labor Day so any place that may offer service will most likely be closed. I have submissions, I swear! So I don't know what to do basically... I'm smart phone bound as I type this message. Yeah....

The failure,
