Zaen's Invention
   Zaen adjusted the video camera, humming a small tune he had recently learned from Rose--something called "Greensleeves." He pressed a button, and a red light on the device began to flash. Moving in front of the lens, he suddenly felt self-conscious, as if he stood before a judgmental crowd. He shuddered. Being on camera, even if it was only for his personal records, was not one of his favorite activities.
    "Project Retrieve, version one point seven two," he spoke to the camera. "Trial one." Seating himself at the PC in the corner, he tapped away at the keyboard. The device on the table next to the computer began to hum. A spherical yellow field appeared below the device, flickering like an old TV set. 
    A fluorescent green tennis ball rested on the other side of the table. As the yellow field below the device buzzed, so the air around the tennis ball rippled and changed visibly. Zaen watched the screen intently, and then gazed toward the tenn

The Writer at the Corner Cafe
It happened at the windy corner café at the intersection of the wide Thorn and Willow Streets, and it was not to be expected, given my weekly habits. The café was a frequent haunt of mine, and I was quite used to ignoring and being ignored by my fellow customers as I sipped my cocoa and munched at a biscotti.
Then the scraggly man one table over from me waved and called to me, in a voice as resonant as a brass instrument, “Hello there! Would you mind reading over something for me?”
Taken aback, I glanced around for others whom he might be referring to, and then asked tentatively, “Me?”
He grinned and nodded, pushing his glasses a little further up his hawk beak nose. As I took my place across from him and pulled my winter hat over my ears, he handed me a sheaf of papers held together by a clip, resting a shy hand on his neck.
“I’m sorry to bother you,” he said. “I just wanted to get an outside opinion before I subm

Hello, ye small yet merry band of folk who for some reason decided to follow me on here.

For reasons that are difficult to explain, I will now be posting only on this account: :iconsolamen:
From now on, this account will mainly be for collecting :+fav:s and being an admin for TheUselessGroup
If you still want to watch my (few and far between) deviations, now you know where to go!

On another note, today I finished watching both Soul Eater and Firefly. In short, I am very, very, very sad right now. :(
  • Listening to: The Firefly theme song
  • Reading: The Way of Kings
  • Watching: Not Firefly anymore... :(


Bane of Darkness
Artist | Student | Varied
United States
Howdy. I'm an aspiring author/artist/animator/composer who thinks he has enough time to hang around dA. I am most likely a Myers-Briggs INTJ, and a self-diagnosed introvert. My primary occupation in my spare time is writing, but I do a bunch of other stuff as well.

My instrumental weapon of choice is the piano, though I also dual-wield the guitar and ukulele.

I occasionally work on an amateur webcomic called Phantom Cove:

Comments or questions are welcome!
I hope your visit to my page is a positive experience. :D
