Literature
A Place in the Sun
A horse, massive and black stampeded through the cacophony, is humongous hooves wreathed in fire. The soldiers in its path only had to see its gnashing teeth and rippling, unceasing muscles before they knew their deaths were inevitable, despite how they screamed as they turned and ran.
A hand pressed hard against her breastbone, so bruisingly unyielding as magic, raw, ruthless healing magic shoved its way into her dead heart and up her rough, hoarse throat.
The voice growled, "I saved your life. Don't dare tell me I do not care."
Before she could sputter, "I know you do, Lord Peregrin, I know..."
The dream came crashing down.
Lucy Lampwick awoke in a cold sweat, shivering although her boyfriend, Sheppard Evin's warm body was doing its best to spare her. In fact, the once soft and welcoming covers and his comforting arm were beginning to become stifling.
All Lucy wanted to do was to curl up and sob.
But that wou

Literature
Viola Acobi: Day One
I wasn't sure whether to scream or cry when I saw the night's leavings.
I kept pawing through the bags of trash, the huge steel dumpster smelling worse and worse the more I stood around, digging through the waste like a lunatic.
But I didn't scream, and I definitely didn't cry. Deep down I knew that weeknights were always chancey at best, with none of the leftovers of the banquets piled high for the rich and powerful. Still, finding nothing probably meant Rondy or one of the other kids made it here before me.
It wasn't my fault, really, being late. Coming out of my little den in the alley between Madam Sophie's Fine Hats and the flower shop on Wabash Avenue, I was stopped by a man who looked like he lost one good fight, collapsed and smearing blood against the otherwise immaculate brick wall of the hat store.
I didn't even notice him at first until my healing magic leapt from my heart down to my fingertips with a jolt. 
You see, I always had these... powers. Madam Watterson, the w

Literature
Captain Skip Slater: Day One
He made the decision as soon as he saw the poster on the information kiosk in the square.
"AIRSHIP CREW NEEDED - NOW HIRING"
He decided he would not be called "Skip". The Captain of the Red Star would refer to him by last name, "Slater", just "Slater".
But what was the first thing said to him onboard? 
"Oh, you must be Skippy, our new Cabin boy!" Captain Albert Alexander cried, shaking Skip's hand boisterously, crushing the boy's fingers in his meaty fist.
The Captain was a large man, built along the strong, stocky lines of a dwarf, but tall, taller than anyone Skip could remember. His brown, curly hair was long, past his broad shoulders, which either spoke of the odd new fashion of a faraway city or the lack of barbers while in the sky and his brown eyes twinkled merrily as if laughing already. Honestly, Skip had no idea what to think of the man, other than wondering just what he had gotten himself into. 
"Ah, yes, that's me, hello," Skip replied nervously

Literature
Pulled Apart
I always had an affinity with pulling things apart. I could never eat a cinnamon roll like the rest of you, I would tear it along the spiral, piece by piece or rip into the crust of bread or chunks of grapefruit or bite-sized hunks of sandwich. And it wasn't just food either. I could look at someone and tear them apart until there were only pieces left.
Like him walking down the street with the bounce in his step, show tunes blaring in his earbuds. He was happiest when he was in a show, but his drooping eyes that looked perpetually worried and a shaky hand on the MP3 player told of a sad little soul. The gloss dotting his lips spoke instantly of his sexual orientation, but the subtleness of it made sure his parents didn't know.
Or her, who clung tightly to her boyfriend, arms intertwined. This was the man she wanted to marry, her strong firm grip showed. His disinterest and immediate answering of a text message, turning so she couldn't see it showed that he was cheating on her already.

Let's see here,
I'm a student and freelancer, head-over-heels passionate about Desgin!
I love procrastinating, messing with Photoshop and singing loudly-slash-badly to music from the late 90's-early-00's.

Feel free to talk to me, I don't bite!

Interests
This article is featured on my ColourLovers profile and features colors and palettes designed and compiled on the site by myself.

Looking for inspiration for color palettes for use in print, web or even art and photography? Color is all around you, and there are so many great places to go out and find it!

- Public Bathrooms
It may seem odd, but many of them are designed with specific palettes and moods in mind, and it's very interesting to see the differences from place-to-place!
Criterion
G.Central_Bathroom
FlipFlopsInTheShower

- Interesting Places
Again, these tend to be designed with these colors in mind or for a reason, but even the idea of a place, or the prominent objects in the room can inspire a palette.
Rockefeller
In_the_Radio_Booth
City_of_Questions

- Video Games
Color in gaming can set the mood of various game environments, indicate and mark certain areas and denote certain ideas or moods (I mean, what great villain is without Red Eyes of Doom</url>?)
Stormcloak_Rebellion
Erectin_a_Palette
Wheatley

- Fashion
Fashion trends may come and go, but the color combinations will always look great!
Kingas_Sweater
Violet_POW!
Fall_Classic

- Comic Books
Comic book colors are palettes put together specifically to compliment the hero (or villain's) superpowers, looks or team theming. A character, cover or even a single panel can provide plenty of ideas
