Carterhaugh: Time plays against us.“Do you ever get one of those days where you’re acutely aware?” Caldar asked rather impressed he could still say acutely when he’d had this much to drink “That you’re always running out of time? Every day. Just…running out of time.” This was the sort of thing that didn’t always make sense to humans his age and you definitely couldn’t say in front of people you’d be in charge of in a couple of years. He’d been saying a lot of things like that to Mei over the past week.Carterhaugh: Time plays against us. by SaffyLailo
“All, the time.” Mei sighed. “When you’re a kid you think you’ve got forever. Then wham! One day you wake up and you realise you’re living on borrowed time.” She ducked her head, drawing circles on the waxy surface of their wooden table. Her hair was a dark screen, hiding her from view.

Carterhaugh: BeginningBy and large across the world rats and humans owned the cities. Here and there the seagulls took over by a coastal town or two, and the rats took a bit of exception to that, seeing the rule of those urban sprawls as sort of their thing.Obviously there were vampires to contend with too, there were always vampires to contend with. Snotty buggers, but vampires were usually city folk too. Far easier to have a quick drink on the way home without arousing suspicion and drawing lynch mobs to you in a big city. And if the three groups squabbled as neighbours squabbled; if the rats fought with the vampires and the seagulls and foxes from time to time, then this was only the natural result of being in a city, too many people crammed into too little space. Fights happened but at the end of the day you knew that well, who ruled which city didn’t matter much because all the factions were sort of, broadly speaking, the same.Carterhaugh: Beginning by SaffyLailo

And the lucky number is:
Just a small note, I'll do this again with my original style when I'm done with my regular commissions
Raffle? Is that the correct word? Anyway, those of you that follow my polls know that I wanted to do something special for my 300k pageviews. And after... I think it was for 150k, when I was giving 3 months of premium, there were like 3 or 4 winners ( and I didn't have enough points ) I will do this with raffle instead (because there will be only one winner, a lot more people will have a chance to win, plus theres this thing with DA now where your pageviews gets counted when someone visits your gallery as well...) .
Sooo, to get a chance to win free commission (this style ONLY: ) all you have to do is fav this journal. You'll have time until I hit 300k on my front page, after that I'll use random.org to pick a winner
GOOD LUCK EVER
