All Tatters and GraveclothesI find myself in my solitude... in these ever so infrequent moments of mist and shadow. I am not allowed the tranquility I so desperately crave. The silence I so yearningly need. Other things, other voices... they draw my time away like bloodletting with a leech. They suck my life and energies dry, and I become again the living dead. Vampyric soul stealers, the banshees of modern life, the sirens calling me so enticingly to my demise. I feel my mortality, it haunts me with the knowledge that I must move on, move forward... accomplish whatever it is the Lord would have me accomplish. There is so much to do... The weight of this knowledge bears down upon me and makes me drag, rather than run. I daren't look back, for I know that the soul-eaters, the time-murderers, are there waiting to catch hold of my skirts, of my hair, and waste this precious gift of life... only to mock and pummel me atAll Tatters and Graveclothes by Orchid-Black

I awoke to the pleasant sensation of the suns punching me right in my eyes. A light breeze had fluttered through, and had shifted my tent flap barely open, but just enough to let the vile suns attempt to weld my retinas into place. I moved my head and felt a sharp ache from where I was bitten the evening before.
Outside were voices, one belonging to Kaine, the others to the leaders of the nomads who hired us to rescue their missing. My dad usually was the one to negotiate with our clients, but these guys were already more than generous. I sat upwards in silence, listening for other sounds, trying to decide if whether or not to roll over and go back to sleep. Come to think of it, I had no Idea how long I had been asleep...
As I moved around a bit more, a dozen tiny leopard moths fluttered about my tent, then gently settled back onto a peculiar bowl I had placed

As far as makeshift, old, splintery coffins go, the one I was currently chained in was fairly comfortable.
Don’t get me wrong; it was not exactly a down comforter, but considering I was imprisoned against my will, I didn’t have nearly as much to grumble about as I thought I would once I made my escape.
That is of course, if Clair and Kaine remembered I was waiting for them here.
They should remember.
On second thought, perhaps I should find more reasons to be optimistic about this coffin.
Not two seconds later, I heard the signal. At least one of them was outside the depot and in position, I took a breath and started to press against my confined prison, tightening my grip upon my ivory scythe; one I had fondly named "Epitaph". They now waited on
Diende - segment 1 - prologueHistory tells us that right before the world was Sundered; there were two empires that towered over the handful of smaller nations with iron fists of military prowess. The two empires, the Qem and the Pneun, broke into a sudden and violent war with each other. A war fueled by a mutually held hatred for bloodlines, and ignited by large corporations and bureaucrats.Diende - segment 1 - prologue by carnifex125
Within only a few months into the war, the Qem Empire was able to silence its own domestic protests, and conquer three neighboring nations within the span of two days.
Word had spread that the Qem Empire developed a long ranged weapon that would drain the motivation from huge populations of people at the push of a button. This "Pacifex" was utilized well by the Qem; they could easily calm and dispel a riot, Render an opposing army into ragdolls, or make a single man feel no more reason to breathe. With this, the war was easily in their hands. Little did they know just how quickly it would end for everyone.

WELCOME ALL TO THE SCARLET CHAPEL
An interdenominational Christian group aimed towards those of faith who partake in (sub)cultures such as Dark Wave, Punk, Goth, Soft Goth, Emo, Scene, Metal, Rock, Industrial, Grunge, Lolita, Straight Edge, and the like...The-Scarlet-Chapel is for men and women of similar taste and belief in Christ to use their abilities and speak out against the grain of stereotypical expectations, and have lots of fun doing so. Best thing is, they would also be glorifying God in a brand new light. ❤
HOW TO JOIN US
In order to become a member of the Chapel, ALL APPLICANTS for membership MUST AGREE & ABIDE at least to the statement of faith, which can be found below:
STATEMENT OF FAITH:
"I have repented my sinful ways and have accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, the Son of God in the flesh, who has died & risen for me to be with Him in eternal life."
"Excuse me, but isn't this a sort of dark Christian group? Isn't that sort of...weird?"
Depends on why you think it's weird. As far as definitions go, anyone can be dark, regardless of gender, belief, and/or background. There is also no biblical law that says you need to have a certain taste or personality in order to be a Christian: they will bear fruit of the Holy Spirit, regardless of taste and preference. The Lord wants us to come and worship him as we are:
Dark Art is anything that is emotional, unsettling, serious, or dark in both context and in the type of picture/text. It is not just horror, macabre, expressing of depression or mutilation.
This type of art, whether digital, traditional or photography, etc., is encouraged in this group while maintaining a Christ centered &/or biblical message.
Please make sure your work is "obviously" Christ Centered or Biblically based. Be specific in the art, words or description. Leave no room for guessing.
No pornographic, nude imagery, sexual, and/or inappropriate representation.
No inappropriate gore and/or self-harming pics or works.
No art indicating harassment towards other deviants.
No art that undermines sin. You can make art about a sin or the topic of sin, but as Christians we should do our best to avoid indulging in them in a way that makes them look “ok”.
Please submit your works into the appropriate folders!
- Featured (submit all works that are not semi-dark or literature here)
- Semi-Dark (artworks that are not-so-dark as the rest of the arts in the gallery)
- Literature (poems, stories, and pieces deserve their own section)
NOTE: If you wish to join or if you are a member who wishes to participate, we require we practice what we preach. If we agree to these tenants, we must live them as well. Do not feel rejected, when you decide to submit anything contrary to Scriptures or that promotes sin, regardless of what society says about it. The Word of God is not up for social change. Membership requirements may be changed without notice.
