"'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! and through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe."

"It seems very pretty,' she said when she had finished it, 'but it's rather hard to understand!' ... 'Somehow it seems to fill my head with ideas—only I don't exactly know what they are! However, somebody killed something: that's clear, at any rate."

From Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There (1871)


Meet Virginia by DrunkAnt
Meet Virginia
Everyone... I'd like you to meet Virginia.  I know this particular picture isn't flattering, but you'll have to excuse me on this one.  She's pretty much what the comic I'm working on is going to revolve around, as far as I can tell.  I'm still working on rounding out some deet's about her looks, (i.e. hair, hair style, height, colour/pattern, etc) but otherwise, she's looking fairly complete.  I'll be introducing the rest of the family hopefully very soon.  I'm pretty confident in my ability to draw in this particular style after I got this picture exactly the way I wanted it.

Note:  Virginia does NOT belong to me; this is my interpretation of another deviant's oc.  She belongs to :icontaggerung1::icontaggerung1: and I are working to write the script to this comic.
Critique for :iconliterature-critique:

Very different from the other works I've read so far from you, but still very similar in the powerful imagery. Suggesting what we all know and probably infer from our knowledge of history without having to actually say it. Also similar in that it seems to start off one way, and give us as readers a glimmer of the other side of things; in this case, starting off very dark and gruesome and animalistic, and ending on the lighter note; having survived. Survived what exactly? The author doesn't tell us. The narrator doesn't tell us. But anyone who has taken middle school history would tell you this man was in a Nazi concentration camp.

Very gruesome work, well done.
Critique for :iconliterature-critique:

This is a lovely poem. Short, but with something of a personal message, almost as though the narrator is talking to themselves in some parts, but also the audience, and sometimes just the audience.

This poem reminds me of someone who used to harm themselves, but with the help of others, they are slowly starting to overcome it, finding out who they are, in a sense.

There's not too much to say about this piece, except that it was done exceptionally and doesn't leave the reader feeling too down, but hopeful; trying to relate to and have sympathy for the narrator.

One thing I noticed, second stanza, second line: "Bringing me pieces of myslef..."

And third stanza, first line, "Where I once was chrystal..." Perhaps the author was referring to themselves here when they use the name version of this, or perhaps it was a misunderstanding with spelling? If the author meant crystal as in crystalline, (pristine, crisp, clear, etc.), this is just a quick spelling fix.

Great work.
Critique for :iconliterature-critique:

This is an interesting poem, to say the least. The author makes very good use of imagery. This scene unfolds as though the narrator is watching this happen across the street or perhaps from his or her own flat through the window into the flat next door, unable to hear what's going on, but able to see everything.

The author also did a very good job at suggesting that what is going on here is a rape scene without actually having to say it.

At the end of this poem, I like that it ends on a somewhat happier note, with the narrator telling us that this is a strong woman and doesn't let this break her.

The very last two lines, "I open my eyes and the scene dissolves but she,/ She stays with me." I like very much because it gives a feel like the vignette has been brought fully around; not necessarily for the story, but in emotion. The darker tone that comes with having just witnessed a bloody and brutal rape without the ability to intervene in any way, that will no doubt stick with a person.

Very nicely done.
The title of this one pretty much says it all; a lot of stuff I was planning on doing/getting up here has fallen through *coughcough boxes I was planning on doingcoughcough*, mainly due to money issues... mainly the lack thereof.  On the other hand, I've actually started some other stuff that I'll actually be able to get on here, like a comic I started with :iconxkiarofl: a while back that I've just been meaning to get inked or coloured before showing the world.  One of my other friends :icondyolfkinp: has been doing that, but can be lazy and take a while to get to it.  Otherwise I'd probably have quite a few of those up. Ummm........ letseee, I'm workin on another comic that may or may not turn into a webcomic and that I may or may not even be able to post all of it here without quite a bit of sensory work... but the world will see that when it's ready, as I must hone my Adobe Illustrator skills.  But once that gets going, I'm hoping to post 2 or 3 pages, weekly.  Maybe I'll do some art with the characters to get them introduced or something...

I may be starting up another story or simple comic in the next month or so based around a little text adventure type rp I'm doing with some friends, so there's that.  I'm not so sure about that one, though, just getting the first one done is going to be fairly ambitious with all of the stuff that's either already going or going to start with the school year.  So, we'll see about that one.

What else, what else... /me ponders.

As you know, I've been working on a short story called "Red Is My Favourite Colour" (link), which has been proving harder to write than I would have ever expected.  What has kind of surprised me about it, though, is that quite a few people are taking to it, which is awesome :D (ps, thanks to everyone who has fav'd or watched to keep up with it!).  Sami's character is just too depressed for me to even try to write about sometimes, and, honestly, I get most of my writing done while I'm at work and forget to either save it onto a flash or email it to myself.  Oya!  There's a few other things I've made/am in the process of making/am determined to make that I've been meaning to get pictures of to post, but those may be a while, kus I think I'll wait until I'm mostly done with enough to get in a good amount of posts.

So, there's yer update.  Been meaning to do this for quite a while, but long story short, I was depressed for a long while, then I just kept forgetting to do it, and when I did get to it, I wasn't sure what to say.  Farewell, and godspeed to ye all for now!
