  "Alan, I changed my mind!" Viola said the second I opened the door. "I don't want a raccoon,
I want THIS!" She held up a newspaper article that detailed the domestication of silver foxes and how they can now be kept as pets. I smiled back and told her it sounded like a wonderful idea. Seeing the joy in her eyes was heartwarming. She was at her cutest when she smiled after all.
  "But who would be able to find one? They aren't exactly common, but then again, if they were then you wouldn't want one in the first place." She waved her hand dismissively, pushing the idea of it being anything short of a guarantee away without a word. The internet could probably remedy that situation anyway. With a shrug I just invited her inside and we popped in a movie we'd rented. Despite her usual tomboyish style, today she was wearing something very different than the norm: a cheongsam, with her hair in the small buns that usually accompany such a look. She'd ordered it online and wanted to show it off. She even had a paper fan. The movie we were watching was Full Metal Alchemist: The Sacred Star of Milos. Viola had always liked May Chang from the anime, so she thought it would be fitting to wear her fancy Chinese dress on this occasion. Of course, I was definitely not against it. She did look beautiful in such a refined outfit.
  Not long afterwards, she suggested we order Chinese food for dinner. "Gee, I wonder what gave you that idea..." She giggled before pushing the take-out menu into my hands. Of course, she changed before we started eating. Chinese food through take-out menus are often kind of greasy and she didn't want to ruin her dress. We didn't order a lot, just some basic stuff, but it was still tasty. Still being hungry after it was finished (MSG tends to do that to you...), we had chocolate bars for dessert.
  However, the next day she brought a different unique outfit with her. It was a cosplay costume. Meant for me! The outfit that the main character from the anime The World God Only Knows wears. It even included the purple execution collar. At first i was hesitant, but then she said this: "But I made it just for you! You wouldn't want to feel left out at the next con, would you? 'Cause I'm going as Elsie." I sighed and said "Well, you really would make one hell of a little sister!" We shared a laugh and I tried it on. It fit pretty well and as long as I could get my hair under control, I would be able to pull off the character nicely. But the next con we could afford to go to wouldn't be until May of next year.
  Viola has been my girlfriend for over a month now, so I should really be thinking of what to get her as a random gift. Maybe that silver fox she wants would be a good gift. I later did some research into it, which proved how plausible getting a domesticated silver fox actually was. We're supposed to wait a few months before getting a pet, but I doubt she'd mind getting a fox a few months earlier than she thought. What to name it will definitely be a bit hard to decide without discussing it with her first or at the very least knowing its gender. It would be great to have one sooner rather than later since the slightly scarier-than-most appearance might help keep Ivan away from us. He was bitten by a large dog as a child and now is kind of scared of canine-like animals. Although, a fox pup would likely not be scary enough yet.
  "Let's go do sometime somewhere, I'm getting bored." She calls for an activity, so an activity I must provide for her now. So I ask her what she might want to do. "I dunno, nothing like a sport or something, I don't want to exercise too much in this heat. Oh, I know! Did you forget what today is?" I had until she mentioned it. Today was July 4th! Fireworks! Our plan decided, we took the bus to get to the usual place people go to see the Fourth of July fireworks. At least, by Viola's logic anyway. The roof of her house.
  We climbed a ladder to get up on the roof and luckily her house had a flat roof accessible by a door on the ceiling of her attic. As we went through the attic, I noticed that it was practically a costume and manga storeroom with bookshelves, boxes, and even a few framed pictures of her in some of the costumes. The gender-bended L was an interesting one. The reason we needed a ladder was because the attic had a high ceiling. But when we got there, the fireworks were starting. We sat there watching them screech through the air before popping into bursts of red, blue, green, yellow, and orange sparks that quickly dissipated into wisps of smoke. There was a park within walking distance, but Viola isn't the kind of girl to take the obvious or easy route. She fell asleep halfway through while resting her head on my shoulder. I just let her stay there as long as she needed to. Because she may have been crazy for ignoring the loud fireworks display, but once agin I say that she id my kind of crazy.
My Kind of Crazy Part 5: Character Customization
I know this one is shorter and less interesting than the others so far, but it was meant to mostly set-up the beginnings of future events. So thanks for reading and I hope to hear someone think up a good name for their pet soon. No suggestions have been made so far.

If you have read my latest ongoing series, "My Kind of Crazy", then you should know that the couple are deciding to get a pet raccoon eventually. But since writing that, I have discovered a much better alternative to that which is actually kept as pets these days: the silver fox. But I'm not sure what the name should be. I plan to introduce the new pet in either part 6 or part 7. The name should have at least some sort of reference to anime, video games, comic books, or some other pop culture the main characters would be interested in. Feel free to give me a list of names if you think of several. I will credit you in the description of the one the pet is introduced in if I chose your idea. As for the gender, male is what I've planned for it, but if there is a good enough female name, then I might make it a girl one instead. I really want to get my audience involved in the making of these stories, and I really like this series so far. If you need a good pic of a domesticated silver fox for reference, here is one i found on google images:

HOORAY!! My laptop is back to being virus-free now! Which means I can use it for dA again! And write journals such as this one! I'm so happy that it's all fixed now. :)

  You know, I have always thought that solitary confinement was a bit cruel. The isolation and small space could drive a man literally insane. It is a very serious problem if you ask me. Isolation is a horrible thing. But that is neither here nor there.
  A few days have passed, and I have returned to class. College has always been a dream of mine since I was young. To be honest, it was the highest I've ever strived for. Graduating a single year of college was my only dream. But now the stress is not as bad. I have a wonderful girl to provide emotional support. Telling Viola my troubles has since made me feel much better. We don't have any classes together, but the time between classes and after school have been small miracles to me. Viola may be crazy, but she is also like a pillar of strength. If I need to talk about how things are going, she is there.
  Except, one day she wasn't there anymore. She had gotten the education she needed and now she has dropped out. But so did I. Viola said to me yesterday "You know that you can do this! But if you try to endure it, it will only feel worse in the end. I'm worried about you, but only you can make this choice.". She gave me a kiss and headed down the hill to the bus stop. I headed to the office to withdraw from classes, the technical term they used for dropping out officially. She was right of course, and now I feel a bit better.
  I sit down beside my girlfriend and hand her the sandwich she asked for. It's a lovely day in the park. Just sitting on the bench eating sandwiches while we watch people go by and small children playing. Viola looks at me and asks "Hey, do you ever want to have kids? I mean, in a year or two from now of course." She is blushing slightly imagining the image of us as a family. I answer "Maybe one someday.". I am not sure how good of a father I might turn out to be.
  Together we talk about the issue and how it might pan out for us. In the end, we decide to get a pet in a few months to help us adjust to responsibility like that. But the question now is what kind of animal to get. "I want something that is a bit less common, something that would be interesting. And hopefully something that is not too high maintenance." Viola said. "Maybe something fluffy or furry.".
  "How about a raccoon?" I had said it as more of a joke, but she was seriously considering it. She soon started to smile gleefully before saying "Yeah! Let's do that!" Our future pet decided, we finished our lunch and went back to her house. But there was an uninvited guest waiting for us there. It was Ivan.
  "Hey sis, you're out of soda." I could only heave a sigh at the sight of that man. He hates me. And I didn't exactly like him much better. "What are YOU doing here? You live together now?!" His rage was building, but I didn't care. Viola didn't even acknowledge his presence. Instead she turned around and went out the door, beginning to walk in the direction of my house. I followed her lead. When we got there, Viola slumped on to the couch and picked up the nearest game controller. "So, do you have some soda? Apparently I am all out of it at the moment." I couldn't help laughing at the casual delivery of her joke. So I went to my kitchen to get us each a can.
  When I came back, she was playing a game who's genre we had never played against each other in before. I was certain that she would beat me in it, but she seemed to be a bit less likely to win than I thought. This gave me an idea. But I would have to wait until tomorrow before attempting it. Tomorrow was supposed to be a hot day, and unlike her, my fridge was stocked with cold soda.
  The next day, I invited her over for a game. I told her that it would be a game with high stakes. She seemed to think that she could win at anything. I was determined to prove her wrong. I took out a deck of cards. "The game is blackjack, winner gets fan service. I'll let you shuffle and deal. You think you can win? By the way, aces go both ways, so luck and strategy are combined to make it more fair." She tented her fingers and nodded with that mischievous smile I love so much. And the game began. We agreed on a best of fifteen hands game.
  "Well, looks like it's my win. Time for a little fan service." I smirk, although there is one way that she might take this that will be disappointing. She walks to the other side of the living room, picks up the fan, brings it over to me and plugs it in. She steps to the side of it after grabbing a soda and a bendy straw before saying "You might need this considering how hot it is." I was afraid she'd take this route. But then she unzips the sleeveless hoodie she wore.
  She stops about three quarters of the way down and opens it up a bit more. Her white bra is dotted with chibi rabbits. She takes the can of soda, now complete with bendy straw, and places it in her cleavage before striking a pose with the straw in her mouth. With a smile and a wink, the picture is completed. I can see her blushing, but she seems to be having fun. "You know, you could have just put the fan in front of me ."
  "Yeah, but you finally beat me at a game, so I thought you deserved more than my usual snarky teasing. Oh, and, you can close your mouth now. Fun's over." She giggles and keeps sipping from the soda still nestled in her bosom. Viola only zips her hoodie up again when she leaves later on. I'm not sure if that was more cute, sexy, or a perfect mix of both, but it made all of the times I lost to her in games totally worth it. I shake my head and say to myself "That woman is my kind of crazy!"
My Kind of Crazy! Part 4: Fan Service
It's been a while since I last wrote something. I hope this turned out okay. I stand by my opinion that this counts as a 16+ rated story. But if I get to a point where putting it off for too long would not make sense, then I will make it 18+ even if not asked to. Starting with the next part, I won't be doing the nonsense first paragraph anymore. The joke has run its course it seems. If I made any continuity mistakes thus far, please tell me. Hope you liked reading this and thanks for reading. :)

I seem to be getting a lot of llama badges lately. Not even many favorites these days. The only times i'm usually able to talk to someone on here is if they reply to a comment I make on their artwork. Is it really so hard to comment on my writing? Or is it that no one actually reads it? Even my journal entries, where I talk about this sort of thing, seem to get largely ignored as far as I can tell. It's almost like no one cares! What's the point of writing if no one every reads it? Yeah, I write usually because I want to, but that doesn't mean I don't want people to read it. 

Comments are supposed to be helpful in one way or another. But i almost never get any comments on anything I write! Not all of my art is long either. If no one can take about a maximum of five minutes to read something I wrote and comment about what they thought, then why take the hours out of my day to write something? But as i said before, not many people even read my journals either, so it seems like everything I do on here that involves something by me, is pretty much pointless. 

Seriously, does ANYONE regularly read my writing? and if so, why don't you ever comment on any of it? I have no way of knowing if ANYONE reads my stuff unless i get comments that can prove it. Even favorites are simply a button you can click, it doesn't have much meaning behind it on its own. But comments actually show some acknowledgement that i'm not wasting my time. I comment all the time, and don't expect to have anyone comment on something I make. I don't expect it because it shouldn't be an obligation. If I don't have something to say, I don't say anything. But there's a second reason. I don't expect comments, becuause i don't get any.

I have very little skills with art in general. Although, I am not too bad at writing poetry. My emotions need to be expressed and it is a great way to do it. Seeing the final product of working on a poem that I wrote always takes me out of the bad mood the poem was most likely based on. There are many different sides to me. Good and bad. I hope people will appreciate the better ones.

I'm so glad you like it! I've always thought my writing to be obviously amateur, and so I try different styles of poetry or change how I word things. For now(hopefully not permanently), I have to use my kindle fire to use dA. So my writing may start lacking given the vast differences between it and a real keyboard. I can't even write journal entries! However, I may be able to get back to using my laptop soon if all goes well. Either way, I won't stop writing!
