Will return to DA soon with some new art.
He needed that spider silk, and now all of a sudden he couldn’t find any spiders. They seemed to be absolutely everywhere just a day ago, and now it’s like they all had packed their dens onto their backs and walked away.
“Friend? No spiders,” Hadrian said to Wilson.
“I know.”
The forest was getting to him. The sun was starting to go down, and the twilight shadows kept playing tricks on him. Creepy tricks.
Here there be monsters.
That line came to him every time he thought he saw something. The scary thing was, there could be monsters here. Hell, he found pigmen and monster-ish spiders already, and whatever Chester was. Who’s to say there weren’t real monsters in whatever strange world he was trapped in?
That thought just made him more paranoid.
“What other things live in this world?”
“Don’t understand.”
Wilson almost wanted to slap the pigman. How could he not understand such a simple question? Instead, he placed a hand to his forehead in frustration. How could he word the question so the man-beast could understand him?
“Monsters?” he said finally. He had no idea if the creature would know what the word meant. So far, conversing with him was nearly always fruitless.
“Monsters?” Hadrian echoed curiously.
“Things. Beasts. Come on, Hadrian. Pigmen, spiders…What else?”
There was a silence. Their footsteps echoed in the dark forest. A gust of wind blew, chilly and threatening. Even Chester seemed nervous somehow, despite not really having a face.
“Chester,” Hadrian said finally.
“Yes, I figured.” Wilson was thoroughly annoyed. Why did he even spend time with this thing? It was so…incompetent. He assumed it was just his gentleman side. He couldn’t very well abandon something, even if it was dense as a rock. He was a gentleman scientist, and he took it very seriously.
“…What?” This answer puzzled Wilson.
“Trees. Trees alive.”
“Yes…Trees generally are.”
“No. You me, alive.”
Wilson thought he could infer what the man-beast meant, but he didn’t really want to believe it. They were, after all, surrounded by trees at the moment.
“You mean the trees are like people?”
“Trees alive. Few. They attack. Scary.”
Wilson went silent. Forests back home always seemed so serene, and now, here, they seemed like Hell. A very living Hell. Every time the wind blew now, he imagine the leaves being fingers, raking the air, trying to reach for him.
And the shadows. They all seemed like…they were trying to grab him and pull him somewhere. Perhaps a Hell even worse than this wilderness.
“It get dark. Not like dark.”
Hadrian’s words couldn’t have been more true. The trees seemed to be getting thicker as the sun moved along, blocking more and more of what little light there was left in the sky. He would have to make a fire soon.
“Huh?” Wilson wasn’t paying much attention to the pigman anymore. He was keeping his eyes on the malicious looking trees. Was he going crazy?
“Merms. Mmm…Man fish.”
Wilson was brought back by this. “Man fish? What?”
“Man fish,” Hadrian repeated, almost matter-of-factly.
“There are man fish? Like mermen?”
Hadrian looked at him quizzically. Of course, he didn’t know what mermen are, he wasn’t from Wilson’s world. All he could assume was that whatever the pigman spoke of was indeed something along the lines of mermen. Hopefully they weren’t dangerous. Either way, they were probably something that lived near water, which, as far as Wilson knew, they were not anywhere near. He’d have to fix that at some point, though.
But he didn’t want to think about it. Not now. Not when the shadows were getting darker. And longer. And closer.
“We need to make a fire.”
“Yay! Not like dark.”
“Neither do I.” He turned to Chester and crouched down in front of him. “Sticks, Chester. And some grass and flint.”
Chester opened his round maw and Wilson stuck his hand in. He drew out the items he spoke of and placed them on the ground next to Chester.
“Thank you, Chester.”
Chester made a chuff noise and sat down not unlike a puppy. If he had had a tail, Wilson assumed he would be wagging it.
He piled the sticks into a pyramid and stuffed the dry grass in between them, then rubbed some of the flint against itself until bright sparks shone and caught the dry grass. The flame quickly engulfed the pyramid of sticks, lighting the area with a comforting warm glow and expelling the shadows. He took some rocks from the surrounding area and carefully placed them around the fire.
“Light, yay!” Hadrian sat down in front of the flames with his hands out. Wilson sat down across from him, and soon after, Chester curled up next to him.  There was light now. Everything would be okay. What was he thinking? Shadows couldn’t grab him. They couldn’t even touch him. Why was he frightened?
He blamed it on Maxwell. He had obviously done something to Wilson’s mind, to make him fear this world. But why? What did Maxwell get from Wilson’s fear and confusion? He would find out, and he’d make Maxwell pay for it.
DS: The Dark Within (Chapter 1)
Prologue: DS: The Dark Within (Prologue)
Next chapter: coming soon
Wilson's fear of the forest (and shadows) becomes apparent, and so does his need for spider webs. A quest shall ensue! In the next chapter...

Before I upload the next chapter I'll be adding a few illustrations (probably one for each chapter from now on if I can get that done). I have an original character coming up I need to draw before her appearance. Hope you'll enjoy!

Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8 I'm totally fanatic about: Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Pokemon, and Final Destination (that one I'm not sure why but I am!)

If you are too, here's some of my thoughts on those subjects! BLARGH *burfs info at you*

Silent Hill: My favorite series of all time. I started into this series when I was 12, on Silent Hill 2, and it's still my favorite game (right next to the first Resident Evil, actually). I'm more of a fan of the original 4, but I didn't hate the new ones either. Except Shattered Memories. That was horrible. I don't understand why they even did that. Homecoming was...okay. I certainly didn't hate it, and I still play it, but it definitely wasn't the best. I did really like Downpour however. GASP, a fan of Silent Hill that liked Downpour?! THAT'S HORRIBLE.
...No it's not. If you're a real fan of Silent Hill, hopefully you get me. Downpour was far better than Homecoming (and Shattered Memories, but that's not saying much...) Downpour, while still lacking in (inevitably) a lot, returned to the mystery and depth of what the series was supposed to be like. I really did enjoy it, and yeah there was still stuff wrong with it, but hey, what could be any better than the original couple Silent Hills anyway? Hm? Don't expect that, it's not going to happen. Just chill and play on. I'm not sure why fans think they have to blatantly hate any new game in a series. Seriously guys. Everything has it's ups and downs.
But I'm really not.
(I also really liked the one on the PS Vita but I'm an RPG whore so ignore that.)
Oh, favorite characters? Pyramid Head, obviously. Duh. Oh, favorite human character? I really love Lisa from the original Silent Hill (which is my second favorite one, btw). I also definitely have a thing for James and Maria, and Heather. I like pretty much everyone though. I just love the series <3
...Please don't talk to me about the Silent Hill movies, I was not a fan. They made stuff weird. But I liked the Pyramid Head style better in that and was glad they changed him to that in Homecoming, because as much as I loved Silent Hill 2, his head was shaped funny. Not like it isn't now, but...well, hopefully you catch my drift.

Resident Evil: My second favorite series of all time! I actually like it just as much as Silent Hill but it's confusing to throw them both together like this, so I separated them the best I can! Honestly, I have the same views as Silent Hill for this series too, I like the originals the best (those REmakes on the GameCube were utterly badass!), Resident Evil 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and Code Veronica.
CODE VERONICA IS MY FAVORITE. Right next to the first one. Just saying. <3
Resident Evil 5 and 6 not so much. Those story lines...I don't even know. I don't really want to talk about it. It didn't sit right with me.
The Wii versions messed up a lot. Especially Code Veronica. Unhappy face. (The original stories were interesting though, like Wesker's and Leon/Krausers. I was glad to see some expansion on those subjects).
Revelations was a lot better. It seemed like they were getting back to their roots more. The story was still a little strange but not as bad (or as random) as 5 or 6.
It just seems like they're pulling stories out their butts at this point, just to keep the series running, and in the process they're making stuff weird. Like how Wesker randomly had a son, etc. The randomness of the stories in these ones messed up a lot for me.
...Don't talk to me about the movies here either. The first Resident Evil movie was fantastic. After that, not so much. And I hated the CG ones, they ruined Leon and Claire (not to mention messed up Steve and Ada's storyline).
Did I mention I love Code Veronica? I love Code Veronica.
Claire is my favorite character, right next to Steve. I also love Rebecca, Leon, and Wesker. And the Resident Evil series in general. :love:
Pokemon: OH SHIT POKEMON YO. I don't have much to say here. I love Pokemon, grew up with it, still love it, will probably always love it. I train Pokemon competitively, too. For reals.
Final Destination: I...don't know. It's a thing. That I like. I'm not sure why. But I like it.

Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8 I'm a zombie and lycan fanatic. Tee-hee. They cool.

Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8 I'm a gamer. I'd like to consider myself a hardcore gamer, but I can't help but think of people that do nothing BUT play video games when I hear that, and that's not me, so I won't consider myself that. I do play a lot of different games, though, and have a lot of different systems. Series that I like, I end up owning the entire series. No I'm not one of those losers that sells their PS3 or Xbox 360 when the new ones come out. I LIKE my games, and how would I be able to play my favorite series if I sell my (not even old) consoles?
I prefer PlayStation over Xbox for a few different reasons (mostly game-exclusives), but I do own an original Xbox and do want an Xbox One for the sake of the Master Chief Collection and Sunset Overdrive. I don't like to engage in console wars, nor do I think it's worth the time, people really need to get over it.
I own every game system except an Xbox 360, XBOne, and the really old ones (like the NES, etc.). I do have a PS3 that is backwards compatible, though, and I still have my GameCube (though I use my Wii for GameCube most of the time, unless I feel like being retro) and Atari.

Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8I love to read and write. My favorite authors are Dean Koontz, Scott Westerfeld, and Stephen King.

Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8I don't watch a lot of TV or movies, but I love The Hunger Games, The Big Bang Theory, Frozen, Jurassic Park, Final Destination, a lot of miscellaneous horror movies,and a bunch of other stuff I shouldn't name for lack of room and your attention span.
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8My favorite band is The Birthday Massacre. I also really like 80's music.
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8I also have a GREAT GREAT love of dinosaurs, and I still don't understand why everyone seems to think they're 'gay'. YOU'RE gay. Buttheads.
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8My favorite dinosaur is a Dilophosaurus. I love them very much <3
Free To Use Umbrella Bullet by angelbebop8Aaaaaaand...hmm...I can't think of anything else :dummy: TA-DA! Mah page.

HEY LISTEN. HEY LISTEN. I'm a zombie fanatic and I LOOOOVE Warm Bodies! HOW IS THAT POSSIBLE?!

I certainly will, you're amazing!

Are you guys still hanging out at the college for the summer semester? Not sure if I should come visit :o I'm not taking classes over the summer but I'd love to hang out with you guys still.

XD Thank you!

I haven't heard anything about where people are hanging out during the summer, which is kinda annoying because I've been aching for a duel.
