There Is A Lady In Our ClosetShe has always been in our closet.There Is A Lady In Our Closet by JudeDeluca
I do not know how she got in our closet.
I do not know why she is in our closet.
She will not tell me why she is in our closet.
She gets angry when I ask her why she is in our closet.
I do not like it when she is angry.
I do not like the lady in our closet.
But I cannot tell her that I do not like her.
I tried to once.
And I got hurt.
And she told me she would do it again.
So I am always nice to the lady in our closet.
Because it is the only way she will stay in our closet.
Because I do not want to end up like my brother.
My parents still cry over him.
But the lady is very lonely.
She wants to play with me.
I am afraid to tell her no.
But she tells me she is very lonely in the closet.
She tells me if I do not find someone to play with her I will get hurt.
So I find someone to play with the lady in our closet.
And for a while I do not hear her.
I do not hear anyone in the closet.
And then the next day she tells me she wants to pla
A Bad Idea (With Arsenal and Lightning Lad)“This was a bad idea.”A Bad Idea (With Arsenal and Lightning Lad) by JudeDeluca
“Yeah, this was a bad idea. You shouldn’t have done it.”
“I shouldn’t have done it?! You shouldn’t have done it!”
“No way! I thought of it first!”
“You did not! My wife’s a mind reader so I know you didn’t think of this first!”
“Oh please, like you’d get her to stoop so low.”
Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring… because all of the commotion was currently coming from the top of the house, specifically the chimney, as two red-clad figures were currently struggling to free themselves from the top of the chimney.
Roy Harper (Arsenal) of the Teen Titans, and Garth Ranzz (Lightning Lad) of the Legion of Super-Heroes, were crammed inside a small, redbrick chimney, with both of their top halves sticking out and fruitlessly struggling to free themselves from their soot-stained prison.

Too Many RobinsOctober 31st, 200XToo Many Robins by JudeDeluca
Halloween, a time of year sugar rushes and getting the bejezes scared out of you are not only time honored traditions but mandatory regulations. Across the United States, children and those who remain young at heart are preparing for the spooktastic celebrations that come once a year (at least according to those uptight calendar corporation buttheads) by dressing up as whatever, or whomever, they so please, collect candy, and/or attend parties.
Nearly every home is adorned with jack-o-lanterns, cut outs of witches, ghosts, goblins, and vampires, fake blood is drenched and dried across walls, and adults stand by with heaping helpings of different kinds of candy to tantalize the pallets of the young (the cool ones in any event).
“Hurry up Daddy!”
“I’m coming Lian but these bags are heavy!”
Roy Harper tried to keep up with his young daughter Lian, who was carrying a half-full bag of candy and assorted treats while her

There was an artist I met in 2011, and afterwards I tried commissioning them a few times online. I think I started to annoy and nag them when I hadn’t intended to via emails. I even sent them a small digital commission as a birthday gift in May because, well, I was worried since I hadn’t heard from them in a while. The only response I got was that the $10 I sent for two commissions was refunded to my paypal since the artist didn’t have the available time to complete the art. Last week I began adding more people to follow on twitter and out of curiosity I looked up this artist, I shouldn’t have clicked the follow button, but I did. A while later I looked on twitter again, and this artist’s tweets were locked from me. This is why I felt miserable, because I realized I really was bothering this person when I hadn’t meant to.
This is not the first time this has happened with an artist I followed. It hasn’t happened dozens of times, but it is the second time, and I’ve never stopped feeling guilty for how that first time happened.
I talked about this with my therapist and with a friend of mine online. My therapist suggested maybe this artist only let their friends follow them and considered me more of a business associate, and Brooke suggested some ways I could try to fix this.
I decided to wait a week, and work on an apology explaining my behavior, the reasons behind it, and acknowledge the possibility that communicating with this person may no longer be possible because of how I acted. I sent the email well after midnight on Sunday, and I’ve been waiting, hoping for a reply. In the meantime, I wondered if maybe I really was overthinking this twitter thing and looked at their profile again today, saying their tweets are private and can only be seen by approved followers. I looked at some other people on twitter who also had the lock symbol next to their names and, I decided to take a chance and figured maybe… I clicked follow again, it said pending, and then it said this person’s tweets were blocked to me.
I feel horrible knowing how I’ve acted. Now I’m once again worrying about how I’ve treated everyone else I know online, and all the other artists I know. I, I’ve decided I’m not going to make any more requests for free, or ask for quick head sketches at conventions. I just, I don’t want to alienate any more people. I don’t want to be creepy and stalkier and manipulative with anyone else. And all I keep thinking of is that I just want to fix things between me and this artist.
Some people have suggested waiting for their reply, but I've realized that my emails to this person might be sent directly to spam. I'm going to talk about this again with my therapist tomorrow, and I'm wondering if maybe, after a period, I either contact this person on twitter directly through a message, or wait a few months and contact them through email about commissioning them and offering to pay them extra for my past behavior. I realize there's a good chance I'm simply overreacting. I'm planning on changing my email address because my English professor suggested changing my address to something more professional to put on my resumes.
Have you guys got any advice? I don't want to be a stalker, but at the same time, I don't want to just leave things as they are. I want to make them right if I've hurt this person.
