Each tear falls like broken dreams; filled with possibility as it falls towards the ground.

Most people have heard that when a baby first laughs, that laugh becomes a fairy. Isn’t it poetic, then, that their first tear is what takes that magic away from them? Babies can’t shed them when they’re first born, and it’s that fact that gives magic a chance in the first place.

It’s slim, but it’s there.

Most people have heard the story about fairies, but precious few believe it. Few know the origin and end of magic in our lives. It’s never completely gone, but enough of it is to make a difference.

Crying is healthy. Shedding tears is an excellent way to cope. But at what cost? Most people, once they reach a certain age, don’t remember the magic they once held in their hands. Life is hard, and most people shed many tears. To keep the magic, you must find other ways of dealing with sadness, with stress, with the terrors in this world. There are many.

Is it worth it?

Perhaps. It depends on whom you ask. But when you use it to bring magic back into someone else’s life, if even for just a moment, it is.

We are the magic-keepers, and we walk a hard road. Each parent must teach their child to never cry. Never shed a tear, or lose it all. Losing it can mean losing the belief, and an entire line can be lost in a moment. We must be careful, then, to never be too hard or too soft, or we risk losing everything.

Some choose traditional means to pass down the knowledge. Teaching spells and telling the child outright to never cry. It works.

I, however, am also a magician, and we’re known for keeping secrets. Teach a little here-and-there, but keep it to things that can be excused as a trick of light and explained with “A magician never reveals their secrets.” It’s still magic. What I teach is still real, and not all of it can be learned by everyone.

How, then, do I keep my son from crying? Simple.

I taught him to never forget his poker face.
A brief explanation of magic. Because have we ever seen Kaito shed a tear?

Based off a headcanon I've been quietly sitting on for months now.
Nugget Thief by kdm13
Nugget Thief
Just a silly little comic that I thought of while watching Chi's Sweet Home. Blame the TWEWY fandom's obsession with Neku and chicken nuggets, plus Chi eating one in an episode.

Wasn't going to draw it, but then I got a ping from Skype saying it's KaiserTiger's birthday. We started roleplaying together on tumblr some years back. So I drew this. At two in the morning. Because when else am I going to have the motivation to do anything? XD

May or may not color later. If I do, the sketchy version will be moved to scraps. Honestly half-tempted to put it there outright, as I only spent about a half-hour on this, but eh.

Also, like, I'm still consistently thrown off by how to categorize stuff here. Because like... there's no option to choose multiple things. TWEWY's a game and Chi's Sweet Home is a manga/anime, after all. Oh well.
Clouds by kdm13
So I was at a thing today and got free access to paints and a tiny canvas, so I painted clouds. I don't normally work with paint, so there's things I'd do differently if I did it again, but I'm decently happy with this.

I also plan to add random geeky things in Photoshop later, but wanted to show off the plain thing first.

I'm still alive...

Just on tumblr a lot. My main is kdm13 and I roleplay as Elphaba under thebeautifullytragicone.

I kinda want to come back here, but I've just been having a hard time focusing on stuff lately. It's hard enough to roleplay at the moment.

Anyway, just thought that I'm mention some stuff before my sub ends on here and I can no longer use this fancy journal skin. XD I do miss the days when I was active on here, but seeing as I'm not currently and I'm strapped for cash at the moment, I decided to not gift someone a membership this year. I can't afford it and am trying to save what little money I have. Probably won't even go out and get a 3DS... I insisted that it was too expensive to get me for Christmas so yeah... Still can't play Dream Drop Distance.

But yeah, it'd be nice if I could talk to you guys more, I'm just busy and stressed from taking care of my great grandma all the time. I've been getting more away time now though.

I got fun stuff for Christmas, including a new microphone for recording stuff and an Elphaba plush.

I hope you guys are all doing well. :hug:
