The Crow And The Butterfly by el-Jimmeister The Crow And The Butterfly by el-Jimmeister
I've been meaning to do this for a while...

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It's (obviously) inspired by my favorite Shinedown song which has the same title.

Just like a crow chasing the butterfly
dandelions lost in the summer sky
When you and I were getting high as outer space,
I never thought you'd slip away
I guess I was just a little too late


I find this one of the most powerful songs they have written. Brent Smith wrote the song about a mother dealing with the death of her child and trying to move on. But he has also stated that the song means different things to everyone.

For me, the song is about accepting that time keeps moving forward, and that we must do the same. We must be able to move on from whatever difficulties in life we go through and to never take what we have now for granted, for we will never know when they will be gone forever.

Program used: Adobe Photoshop CS5

Wow. This is gorgeous. I am literally trying to rave about this, but I have no words. None. Just...beautiful.

Thanks, man. This is also a serving of brain bleach for you after sitting through 'Crawl.' ;)

Tee hee. Well. If I have a moment where I freak out, I'll just stare at this for a while and pretend that crow is going to peck Freddy's eyes out.

Is it wrong that I thought that the thought of the crow pecking Freddy's eyes out was... hilarious? :evillaugh:

After what you, Monica, and I have to deal with? No. Not. At. All. At least so far, Wendy hasn't been forced into a numbersome - gall, that thought takes me back to "Our Dirty Little Secret"! If I find this author, I think he and Shao Khan are going to have to have a "talk".

I have a bad feeling that Wendy will get forced into that kind of ordeal later on.

More than a talk, perhaps. :evillaugh:

Ugh... I just know that Wendy will get whored out to various men in the story.

SPOILER: The second (or was it third, including Wilbert the computer shop owner, a man she had cyber-sex with...?) man she will fuck is her teacher, Mr. Acumin, in Chapter 8. I've skimmed through the text from chapters 4-8, and all throughout, I was, like, "No! No! No! No! No! What the fuck is this!? No! No! Ew! Seriously!? What the fuck, Wendy!?"

Yeah, sure I've had the hots for my (female) biology teacher back in sophomore year in high school, but this is GOING TOO FAR. I knew not to pursue her because she's married. But on the flip side, she gave me an almost perfect grade in the subject in the report card after observing the parallels between creation and evolution, and explaining it in front of class, which was met with applause. I was from a Catholic high school, by the way.
