Shinlai Autumn Ball- The Raven by lambomill Shinlai Autumn Ball- The Raven by lambomill
" “Prophet!” said I, “thing of evil! — prophet still, if bird or devil! —

Whether Tempter sent, or whether tempest tossed thee here ashore,

Desolate yet all undaunted, on this desert land enchanted —

On this home by Horror haunted — tell me truly, I implore —

Is there — is there balm in Gilead? — tell me — tell me, I implore!”

Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”



“Prophet!” said I, “thing of evil! — prophet still, if bird or devil!

By that Heaven that bends above us — by that God we both adore —

Tell this soul with sorrow laden if, within the distant Aidenn,

It shall clasp a sainted maiden whom the angels name Lenore —

Clasp a rare and radiant maiden whom the angels name Lenore.”

Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”



“Be that word our sign of parting, bird or fiend!” I shrieked, upstarting —

“Get thee back into the tempest and the Night’s Plutonian shore!

Leave no black plume as a token of that lie thy soul hath spoken!

Leave my loneliness unbroken! — quit the bust above my door!

Take thy beak from out my heart, and take thy form from off my door!”

Quoth the Raven “Nevermore.”



And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting

On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door;

And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming,

And the lamp-light o’er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor;

And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor

Shall be lifted — nevermore!

-Edgar Allan Poe "The Raven"


Tornado for the Shinlai Community's Autumn Ball <3 I decided to go with something... dark and scary, mainly for the fact that all the others I've seen are colorful, like fall, and just aashga gorgeous.

Nado is dressed as a Raven, and is using her element of Air to shroud her feet in plumes of dust... as well as making that sexy ass cape wave around. <3

/I gotta thank =WellHidden for making this transparent and adding the shadows around the image <3 Thank you!/

Thanks! <3 I figured to do something that stood out from the other costumes I saw people doing. Nado is just too dark to have floral leaves and such <3 Again, thanks for the kind comment!

Nado: *sits on Alana* C:

Aaaah now you have to, because my eyes must behold the sexiness of Darius. I bet you'd have whipped my ass at drawing him as a Raven, especially because it would fit him much better. This is a bit out of character (as far as everyone is concerned) for Tornado, but it is just a costume XD

I'm going to do it. Not like I've got anything to lose!

I was also had the weird temptation to give him that colorful drippy eyeliner or whatever it is from... Well, do you listen to Studio Killers? Because, you know, shits and giggles.

She probably would, but she probably wouldn't even realize that she was doing anything to begin with! xD She's... well, crushed multiple humans under her fluffy butt on a few occasions, resulting in them being hurt- but she's so innocent lol.

Thanks! <3 I had an amazing 6 days to plan her outfit and the dark and scary just called out to me. Originally I planned to lighten her colors and dress her up as a phantom, so to say, but her dark colors made it look really goofy xD
