where i am from. by devils-horizon where i am from. by devils-horizon



.. Well, I'm not gonna leave this place,
til I have found where I am from
and I've reached the Fatherland
There's a light that I always see,
just before I sleep in the
mystery of the shallow waters...

"Fatherland" by Story One

Alrighty so this is for *Breathless-dk's elements contest, bet you can't guess what element I chose! ;) (lols...) I have WIPs as I went along and made this, but I'll post the links to those later as I spent approx. 2 whole days on this and I am dead... mentally and physically exhausted! >_<
As the deadline has now been moved back to 1st Dec... I may try another element if I have the time, so much stuff to do and sooooo little time.. (why is it always the way..!?)
Anyway... enjoy ;)

PLEASE;; NO CRITIQUES OR NIT-PICKING WANTED! Nit-Pick or Crit and your comment will be hidden! Don't bitch or complain to me because you didn't read!
