The Golden Stranger, Part One

In the dark, the wet pavement shone like a trail of starlight, looking beautifully out of place in the grimy little town. For her, seeing something so different from the dirt and the fights, from the blood and the cruel, disgusting people that she was so used to—it was amazing, breathtaking, even. It wouldn’t last for long, but it was a sight she’d treasure for the rest of her time in that awful little mess of homes, government buildings, and stores, and for even longer. One that would keep her hopes up, making sure she kept pushing forward, and one that meant she’d spend all her nights at the Golden Stranger Diner, an oddly named little establishment that, like the street that had

The Field Trip - Part Four, Monsters

Part One
The tour guide was attempting to pry the door open, as he had told Miss Haruna to take a break and calm down. Instead, she was pacing, trying to ignore the muffled screams, but not realizing that they were now coming from the exhibit room, and staring at the golden doorknob she held in her ha

WARNING: Violence, swearing

Mika readied herself for a fight, when a figure suddenly leapt out at her from the darkness. She squeaked, hitting it in the head with her ruler. The shadowy figure shrieked, rubbing its head and muttering swear words as another shadowy figure slappe

Part One

The class looked around the room, and then back at their teacher. Miss Haruna glared at the tour guide. “Where did they go? You’re supposed to know this whole museum, right?”
The tour guide nodded. “Yes, I know the whole museum. Only the doors to the rooms we’

Miyoko Karintha’s 7th grade class was currently on a field trip to the museum. As exciting as everyone had expected it to be, their guide was the most boring person ever. The only reason Miyoko wasn’t completely bored out of her mind was thanks to Rae, her best friend, her girlfriend Misaki, and Misaki’s little sister, Etsumi. Etsumi may have been really, really annoying sometimes

Foxstep's Story - 5

“Airstar?” Echosky approached her leader with caution, Foxkit trailing close behind. The white-she cat gave no response to Echosky’s call, simply continuing to pad towards wherever she was going.
“Excuse me, Airsta-“
“Not now, Echosky.” The leader finally stopped, eyeing the newly-made warrior closely. “Whatever it is, I’m sure it can wait.”
“Actually-“
Airstar turned away, raising her head as she walked away from Echosky and Foxkit. With a frown, Echosky turned to the small ginger she-cat, flattening her ears.
“I’m sorry, Foxkit.” she said softly, nuzzling the kit’s cheek gently. “I know how much you want to be an apprentice, but it seems that Airstar has something else to take care of.”
“You mean like every time she says ‘not now’?” Foxkit replied flatly, her whiskers drooping with disappoi

Also! I may post some Camp Camp art soon, however, I'm mostly moving away from this account.
I'll stay active on tumblr, but at this point, deviantArt is a bit of an afterthought, due to limited phone storage.
(Collab With Meranthi2768) Sealand as Sailor Moon
A collab with my little sister, who was responsible for the torso, face, hands, the box Sailor Sealand is standing on, the title, the guidelines, the clothing, the pose, and the rough sketch, as well as the idea.
I drew or edited the legs, arms, gloves, hair, tiara, boots, skirt, and the speech bubble.
I'm really proud of this, especially the work she did! It'll probably show up on her account soon, so please don't tell her she's stealing art.

Hetalia isn't mine, it belongs to Himaruya Hidekaz. 
I used a face morpher (www.morphthing.com) to merge a picture of Austria and Hungary, as well as doing the same thing myself (a bit less successfully, mainly just for a second image), and the result was this!

In the dark, the wet pavement shone like a trail of starlight, looking beautifully out of place in the grimy little town. For her, seeing something so different from the dirt and the fights, from the blood and the cruel, disgusting people that she was so used to—it was amazing, breathtaking, even. It wouldn’t last for long, but it was a sight she’d treasure for the rest of her time in that awful little mess of homes, government buildings, and stores, and for even longer. One that would keep her hopes up, making sure she kept pushing forward, and one that meant she’d spend all her nights at the Golden Stranger Diner, an oddly named little establishment that, like the street that had caused her to be there at all, stood out to the girl like an island in a sea of despair and violence—a safe haven, of sorts.

Named after a local legend of a mysterious individual who roamed the town—before it had fallen into its current state, just barely one step above chaos, of course—keeping crime in check, cleaning up the various messes made by the town’s inhabitants, caring for the local wildlife, and helping anyone who needed it, whether they’d admit it or not. They were beloved, up until the day they disappeared—gone just as quickly as the droplets of water on a road that had made our young main character, please don’t forget her, think of the night sky—vanishing so suddenly and quickly that people quickly began to wonder if they’d ever been real in the first place.

Perhaps, May mused to herself as she sat in the diner one night, their care still protected the welcoming little building she spent so much time, and her, as well. She sighed, picking up her mug to take a sip out of it, and frowning when she noticed she was out of coffee. She slid it to the edge of her table, catching the attention of Beatrice Aureum, a smiling, happy, energetic waitress who she’d come to know.

“Honey, how are you tonight? Have ya seen it yet?” May had told Beatrice of the road on the night she’d never forget, reminding the woman of a similar experience from when she was younger, and making her want to see it, too.

May smiled, primarily for the waitress’s benefit. “Not yet.”

“Y’know, ya just gotta keep trying, and, hey, you never know—maybe the Golden Stranger will decide to give ya a hand, just like they did for me, when I was yer age.” She started pouring coffee into May’s cup, like she had a million times before, as if she hadn’t just said something world-shattering.

Perhaps it wasn’t for her, but May certainly would have dropped her mug on the floor at that, if she’d been holding it. “You've—You’ve seen the Golden Stranger?!” If anyone but Beatrice had claimed this, she’d have dismissed it without a second thought.

Then again, she wouldn’t have been having this conversation with anyone else.

The waitress chuckled. “O’ course I have, and more than just seen them, sweetheart. Why do you think I work here?”

May gaped at her. “You mean… I thought… But… What? The Golden Stranger is really real?!”

“They’re very much real, honey, and they own this restaurant.” Beatrice sighed, her expression saddening. “But, nowadays, the rest of the world—heck, even this tiny little town—is a bit beyond their ability to repair, so, as of late, they’ve just been sticking to improving lives in small ways, namely,” she gestured around them, at all the little booths and the counter, “this here place. A little bit of comfort, like how a home ought to be, for those who don’t have it.”

She paused, giving May the chance to study her expression and posture. She looked different—younger, stronger, and yet older and wiser—and it was obvious that she whole-heartedly believed every word that she was saying. “And, my dear, they saw potential in some people to, maybe, eventually, do the type of thing they once did. After all, it’ll take a lot more than one person to do much good these days.

“Most o’ these people, they’ll just give a bit of subtle, indirect help—a little shove in the right direction, if you will. But,” Beatrice bent down to look directly into May’s eyes, “Some people, they were able to help and keep safe much more directly.”

Beatrice’s expression looked completely serious, and had a look in her eyes May couldn’t quite name. “People,” she returned the shocked girl’s cup, “like you and me.” Beatrice walked away, and May speechlessly watched the kitchen door—if that was even what it really lead to—swing shut behind her.

May gazed out her window as she absentmindedly stirred milk and sugar into her coffee, questioning everything about the universe and her life that she’d always taken as a fact without giving it even a second thought.

Ten years later, May had been forced to move away, to the big city, for a couple reasons. She worked in an office, boring, yes, but it payed decently. Her mind often wandered to the nights she’d spent at the Golden Stranger Diner, in a tiny dump of a formerly beautiful town, the kind that tourists had flocked to from all over, a town that didn’t deserve the diner.

She couldn’t help but wonder about it, honestly. You’d be the same way if you were in her place, I’m sure.

One day, when she was out on her lunch break, she paused by a newsstand, to read the headlines, and decided to buy a copy of that week’s paper. She sat down on a nearby bench to read it. As much as she’d always preferred print over reading digitally, it offered her little comfort in this case, and each sentence was a new horror that made her long more and more for the ‘Golden Stranger’ of her hometown.

“Honey?” She ignored the voice at first, dismissing the possibility that it could be who it sounded like. “Oh, dear, May, sweetheart.. You did want my help, didn’t you?” This was enough to make May look up, scarcely believing her eyes, as the woman standing before her hadn’t changed a bit since they’d last met.

But, yes, this was indeed Beatrice. Once again, just like all those years ago, May’s brain couldn’t figure out how to respond.

For the third time in her life, the girl—more of a woman, now—who never run out of things to say, was speechless.

Part Two: Link will be added when it’s up.

I'm back from a way-too-long hiatus with a couple of new characters, and plenty of new content! I'll likely have a burst of lots of activity that'll die off pretty quickly, since there's no longer enough room on my phone for deviantArt, and I'm having to make this from a computer, which also means I probably won't be replying to comments much. If you need me, message me on tumblr (patowan).
But, anyway, by the end of the week, I should have posted, at the very least:
-A revised first chapter of Moria Ravenswoop
-The first four chapters of a new story
-The first chapter of another new story, and maybe the second, too
-A few new oc drawings
-A Nyo!PruCan sketch
-Maybe a Hetalia shitpost-type thing, it depends
-Hetalia ship children (AusHun, AmeriPan, and USUK, which was for a friend) made from a face morpher

See y'all later!

Hello! I'm not the best at these kinds of things, but I'm Dakota, I'm most likely either nonbinary or genderfluid, and I use they/them pronouns.

I like Heathers, Camp Camp, Percy Jackson, Be More Chill, Voltron, Hetalia, Warriors, and Harry Potter, Hamilton, Star Vs The Forces of Evil, The Great Comet, and plenty of other things, those are just the fandoms I'm mainly in.
Unless stated otherwise, all characters, scenarios, photos, art, stories, etc. belong to me. Please do not repost without permission, and make sure to give credit if I do let you repost (which I probably won't, my stuff is on most platforms I want it on already).

I have a tendency to become really inactive for long periods of time, but no worries! I'd post something if I were leaving permanently, and I always come back with a burst of activity.

I cosplay occasionally, and may start posting those pictures here. However, feel free to ask me for my cosplay Instagram!

I'm currently trying to learn German, and I'm a native English speaker. I know a little bit of Spanish, Welsh, and Italian (mainly just words or phrases.)

That's about all I can think of to write, so bye!
