I really want your help, autistic or not. There was victory over the dicks who played the prank and had an autistic kid smeared in shit and urine. Let's go two-for-two.

Are those people fuckin' serious? Don't answer that. I already know. This will solve nothing. Autism is no disease, and no illness. I don't give a shit if it's "incurable". All autistic people stand out, and there's no doubt that they want to stand out. The so-called "cure" someone has in mind, is only promoting abuse and driving countless children to their deaths, and those people are only pocketing gullible idiots' money for this bullshit. Even supposed doctors are picking on children just for being different? This is a total bloody outrage. There is still no change in the world, and all the smart people are still used as punching bags. Fuck you jocks. Fuck you douches. Fuck you bullies.

Not a Hero by Agent36496
Not a Hero
"Facing this unbearable fear, like meeting an old friend"
"Time to die, poor mates; you made me what I am"
"In this world of a million religions, everyone prays the same way"
"Your praying is in vain; it'll all be over soon" [cackles] [riff]
"Father help me, save me a place by your side"
"There is no god!
"Our creed is but for ourselves [chuckle]
"Not a hero, unless you die
"Our species eat the wounded ones"
"Drunk with the blood of your victims
I do feel your pity-wanting pain
Lust for fame, a deadly game"
"Run away with your impeccable kin!"
"...Good wombs hath borne bad sons..."

That is the spoken dialogue in Nightwish's song "The Kinslayer". In case you didn't see, I made three other pieces based from specific lines, and this is the last in my series. I do feel proud, though. Three drawings in one month. And I put much thought into this one.
I did five practice runs before making this final. To me, this took much dedication. On the afternoon of 21 May, 2015, I drew this with a pencil and then black-lined with a pen. Coloured with pencil crayons and markers. I was drinking tea, eating a muffin, and listening to Tarja: Colours in the Dark. I took 71 minutes and 21 seconds, start-to-finish.
The scene is a bit of fanart from a very old video game called "Bushido Blade", which worked only for the first PlayStation. The story is set in a Japanese civilization. There's a dojo where the sword arts are learned, along with the Bushido. Honour is held out in the Meikyokan dojo, until the master became power-hungry and make sure that it would be the only dojo for samurai. Formed within, was a secret society of assassins called Kage. Everyone who knew about it, was sworn to secrecy, and forbidden to leave it grounds. However, someone escapes, wanting to not be a part of a corrupted community. That someone, is one of the six characters you play as.
The character I chose here, is one of them. Irish-born, Black Lotus was trained in the way of the warrior, and grew skillful at that. He is one of the assassins that followed the dojo master's orders. After bringing about a massacre on a village, he questions himself about the ways and his own loyalty. Upon the death of the crazed dojo master, he sees that he can do nothing else. He's convinced that he outlived his purpose. So, following the way of the warrior and carrying out the tradition, he kneels down, and stabs himself in the heart.
Black Lotus, I found difficult. In the video game, in his story costume, he has a mullet, and some stubble on his chest can be seen. It was hard to notice, the French mustache. The outfit, the mask, and the mustache makes him like Zorro. I had difficulty on the hair colour. He seemed to be a blond, but I doubted that because of his facial hair. The sword is a rapier, which I choose when playing him. When knowing his special move with it, you have an unfair advantage. In the secret ending when playing him, a woman has a short monologue, She's disappointed that he killed himself. That she's sad, is unclear. Her last line, when looking at a picture of him, along with a flower is: "I loved you... James..."
As I subscribe to what I call "Reader's Theory", I thought, "How would it play viewed right to left?" I really thought it would be appropriate, as it is a Japanese game and I did use the style of anime, as you can see.

Not much. Been playing "Assassin's Creed: Rogue" now. It was actually one of my Christmas presents. Chose now to pick up on it. I've also been watching the walkthrough of "Devil May Cry". Watched the first, now on the second. In the fantasy I've been writing, I'm now over 70 000 words.

In a way, yes. I really want to draw something later, but I don't know what. By the way, did you see my drawing, "Hope"?
