    I'm a guy, but honestly, there is no Prince Charming or Princess Perfect waiting for anyone. No relationship is ever perfect. And it never can be, it's two different human beings.
     
    What you should look for is obviously someone you like who is a nice person, treats you well, makes you happy.

    @Specter: Yeah, your criteria of "realistic" is different from me. I don't know what kind of cartoons you mean, because this is pretty standard for the higher-quality anime out there. A lot of anime are "anatomically/proportionally correct", like what I did, but I (and generally everyone else) still call them "cartoon".

    I also try to draw manga sometimes:
     

     

     
    I kind of like the old-fashioned manga style with lots of cross-hatching. Also, because I'm cheap, no screentones. All the effects are drawn by hand. It's not a good idea to do for an entire manga, but eh, it's been done before (Koi Kaze), so it's okay.

    I'm making a new thread for my stuff because the old one is old and some of the codes are wonky because the new forum has a different HTML format. I don't feel like fixing the codes one by one, so I might as well just start up a new thread.

    The One Left Behind
     
    It was autumn. Well, the seasons mattered little. One would observe an elderly gentleman visiting the city's graveyard at dawn everyday without fail. The man himself was well-groomed, walking with a slight hunch with a walking stick. He would stop by one particular tombstone to lay fresh flowers over it. The ones from before had already been swept away by the wind. His face was serene while regarding the tombstone in silence. The name of the deceased almost faded from the stone but one could still faintly make out the 'T'. A flash of regret over the gentleman's wrinkled face... but it was immediately replaced with a sad smile and a soft sigh. After that, the man would walk back towards the awakening city and, perhaps, back towards his many children and grandchildren awaiting him at home.

    This one is an extension from my main fanfic of Lars and Dameon. A word of warning though, it contains strong suggestive themes. So read at you own risk. What that said, enjoy!
     
     
    Sanctuary
     
    Lars strolled casually up the hill towards the temple. Spring was beginning to roll in and he felt great. Everything about the place near that temple made him feel great… except the bees. Whistling a tuneless melody, he lifted a finger without needing to lift his arm, and zapped the three remaining buzzing bees before his sight. He reached up the stairs and, without knocking, barged into the temple.
     
    “Da-me-on!” he called, in a singsong manner. But, just as he got his eyes adjusted in the darker hall, the scene before him made his voices soar several octaves higher. “What is that? What are you doing with that?”
     
    The druid looked up from where he was, on one nicely cushioned corner. His cheeks visibly flushed from his recent manoeuvre. “Oh, it’s you, Lars!” he greeted, rather too cheerfully for our necromancer’s taste. “Oh, you mean this? A guy at a bar insisted that I should try it out. So I bought it and… Wait, Lars! Where are you going?”
     
    Stupid Dameon! He ruined the mood.
     
    Lars ran blindly down the hill, cutting through the thickets, while routinely zapping whichever annoying bees before his sight. He was about to reach the Mule Express when a force hit from behind, knocking him off balance. Well, not really. Swept up from his feet, he was cradled in Dameon’s loving arms like a princess.
     
    “Put me down, you pervert!”
     
    Dameon looked crushed. “What pervert… me?”
     
    Just then a shrill voice cut through the quiet woods. “What’s this commotion about?” And then the lone harpy, infamous for terrorizing Teacup Town, appeared on a thick tree branch overhead. “You again?” she shrieked, spotting the struggling humans below.
     
    “We apologize again for disturbing your peace,” the druid said fluidly while preparing for a hasty retreat. “We are leaving soon.” They hurriedly left the groove and rested by a trickling stream not far from the temple. Correction: it was Dameon who was the only one running all the while.
     
    Lars began awkwardly from the druid’s arm. “I don’t think I understand you at all.”
     
    “We can try that out together this evening. If you want to I can show you what you want to know.” Dameon gave him his most suggestive smile which brought forth a furious blush on his cheeks. “What do you think?”
     
    “Well… It doesn’t sound that bad.”
     
    “Then let’s head back to our nest.”
     
    Hearing that, the necromancer squirmed in his arms. “I can walk, you know.”
     
    The druid merely tightened his embrace. “You are not that heavy.”
     
    “Pervert.”

    AVEYOND 2: BEHIND BARS
     
    “What are you looking at?”
     
    “What are you looking at? Stare longer and I’ll cut off yer tongue.”
     
    “As if you can do anything to me from your position,” I muttered.
     
    I leaned back against the stony cold wall with my arms folded under my head. Looking anywhere other than that puffing inmate I smiled wistfully as memories of past adventures surfaced to occupy the idle mind.
     
    Life had never been this fulfilling…
     
    When did it happen? Was it a few hundred years ago? Ah, it feels just yesterday when I sneaked a kiss at her rosy check. Just that and her adopted father got all mad.
     
    I closed my eyes and chuckled.
     
    It was a nice sunny day, I recalled, and I had this pretty dandelion for her… Well, you can get dandelions everywhere and they are free. But that’s beside the point. Daddy came, did some hocus-pocus and I started feeling heavy and rigid from my feet upwards… Understand this, fools, I stole the heart of a princess belonging to a Master Thief. And Daddy oh so understandably got jealous. I couldn’t help but grinned. The last thing I remember was that golden dandelion falling from my fingers…
     
    “Stare longer and I’ll cut off yer tongue.”
     
    My fellow inmate was currently threatening some visitors at the other side of the bars. I sighed. This guy should really start attending language class.

    AVEYOND 2: SEVEN SILVER SPOONS
     
    Ean watched as Gavin carefully wrapped the spoons within a silk cloth.
     
    “Seven silver spoons,” the elf mused. “Is there any significant meaning behind it?”
     
    “These seven spoons reflect the Seven Sins,” the warlock explained. “And the fact that they are of silver makes them pure. With these, the incantation of ensnaring a pure soul should be perfect.” He stopped for a moment to flash his characteristic one-sided grin. “The effect is especially great on one's heart which is owned.”
     
    Ean nodded, though he had not a slightest clue whatsoever. “I see that you are really in love with Ava...”
     
    “You have mistaken. Those spoons are meant for you.”

    I lost some of the old ones.
     
    Well, some I wrote directly over the forums so I didn't have a save copy within my PC. Here are the ones I have still.

    VOICE BOX - AVEYOND 1 & MY LITTLE MERMAID CROSSOVER
     
    Did you say you wanted to know how I lost my voice to that double-crossing Harpy? Well, I did not exactly lose my voice. It was like this: I gave it to that Harpy in return for the love I hope to gain from a beautiful Bini living next door.
     
    Pathetic, I know, but that was me; I was so in love with her!
     
    And, so, one fine day, vowing that I would have her as my bride, I left the safety of Teacup Town into the wilder lands to search for this Harpy for help. To my surprise, she was not that hard to find.
     
    “Poor unfortunate soul,” she shook her head, sadly, after hearing my story. “Not to worry, I have what you exactly want. But I will have to keep your voice in exchange for the love you desire… for as long as our contract lasts.”
     
    “My voice?” I asked. What a bizarre condition, was it not?
     
    She nodded. “Your voice,” she repeated. “Along with that, you also have to have her kiss you within three sun sets. Not a normal kiss, but a kiss of true love.”
     
    “If I give you my voice,” I replied anxiously then. “How am I going to… ”
     
    Her laughs cut off my question. And, startling me, she placed a finger on my lips. “You don’t have to worry about that as well. You have what we called as the universal language: your body language. Use that. By the time you gained her kiss, I will return you your voice.”
     
    I frowned. The condition was strange. So was the way this winged, two-legged creature was looking at me. This seemed to be the quickest way to have my Bini fall in love with me. But if anything went wrong, and if I were to be slightly fallen behind the appointed time…
     
    “If you fail,” she continued. “If you could not have her kiss by the third sunset, you will not have your voice back. Not only that, your love for her will turn to her hate for you.”
     
    I believed that love would conquer all, including fear. “I guess that is a deal then.” I signed the contract, i.e. pressing my right paw on this glowing parchment.
     
    Things occurred too fast after that. I was told to sing. And, as soon as I did that, I watched in horror as a slender, whip-like structure grew from her, crawled through empty space, and took my voice from my opened mouth. Her laugh was the most horrid sound I ever heard…. I clutched my throat uselessly as I made my way back home… to find that my Bini had fallen madly in love with me – it really worked!
     
    Things went on smoothly since then. On the first day we went out together to have dinner. On the second day I went to meet with her father: the Mayor of Teacup Town. The third day… I decided it was time to kiss her for the first time.
     
    But it was when things went way wrong. Some human came, fought with that Harpy, and returned my voice, which was kept in a box, to me.
     
    So the contract was inadvertently broken by this bunch of morons. And my Bini forgot everything about us. I was alone again.
     
    Well, I have got over with it now. Knowing my story… Hey, please! Stop yawning!

    AVEYOND 1: THE OGRE AT LAND END’S
     
    I wanted companions. I wanted friends. I wanted someone to talk to.
     
    I hoped that, someday, I could walk under the light of the human world without them fearing my existence, talk with its occupants without them running and screaming bloody murder away, offer my strength to aid but not to block attacks aim at my abominableness.
     
    But what can I do to change the fact that I was born to be a despicable ogre?
     
    Even the monsters were scared to death of me. Well, I eat monsters. So that’s understandable.
     
    My dreams were almost fulfilled that one night when I saw a lone fairy near my cave. A fairy equated to a miracle. I thought that by using its powers, perhaps, I could gain the ability to speak human language. And if it were possible I wish the fairy could help me look slightly more human. It was worth the try. Yes. But, oh, just how I wished the fairy could calm down a little and listen to my pleas.
     
    And then they came. They… those humans… came into my lair. They did not wait for my explanation and tricked me into a swoon and stole my fairy – my only hope – away!
     
    Damn you, humans!

    AVEYOND 1: LORAD’S MUSE
     
    Nostalgia, and longing, swept over me looking at this girl. Clad in worn garments common among slaves in this area, her sad, rundown sight was a far cry from the dignified Queen I used to serve.
     
    Throughout the years I had traversed across the lands searching. At some point in my directionless journey I had met with a beautiful sorceress and was immediately talked into enrolling the Academy as a lecturer, to offer my dying skills as a Sword Singer, while continue on with my search. Fruitless, it seemed. I had but recruited a handful of potential pupils… Potential, for they all had the essence of a Sword Singer running oh so thin in them. I was devastated by my findings. I had to find her. In her only ran the true blood of a Sword Singer.
     
    She had to be somewhere alive, breathing the same air I breathe.
     
    And now, with this slave girl in front of me, I wondered if I had come to the end of the search.
     
    How many years had passed since I left Thais with the instruction to search for and educate the Lost Princess, while the royal couples stayed back to defend what was left of their kingdom?
     
    It did not matter where she had been previously, or how she had been brought up as, with proper education she would acquire skills of a Sword Singer as powerful as her royal heritage would allow.
     
    “I am Rhen.”
     
    Her voice rang like a sweet honey in my mind. No doubt. It must be her. But I had to make sure…
     
    Come back to Thais, my Princess. “Come to the Academy, Rhen. Come live a life of a free citizen; slave to none but the Queen.”

    AVEYOND 1: HOW TO GET RID OF ANNOYING ADVENTURERS
     
    I am Devin.
     
    If you allow me I would like to share a little of my life as a Hermit. Back in my hometown people used to call me Devin. I am also supposed to be the King of Thais before everything is blasted in front of my very eyes.
     
    Blasted, literally… I lost everything.
     
    King Devin is dead.
     
    We are left with one unhappy Hermit.
     
    So much for the introduction, now let’s move on to the topic of the day. What is it about again? Ah, yes, on getting rid of annoying adventurers who never leave the poor hermit a peace of mind. Newbie adventurers are particularly a pain in the neck. There is no mistaking about that. They barge into the place, ask a few questions, and leave.
     
    Gold I have a few. Along with some logs I gathered in preparation for the coming winter, I am deprived of anything but a crate half-full of apples and salted pork. But, things have been disappearing right after their numerous visits... those so-called adventurers. If I let things be, it might come a day when I am looted from everything, leaving me bare with only hardly any miserable ragged clothes to cover my hide. What irritates me most is that they would not at least step clean their boots of mud on that nicely prepared carpet before entering my house.
     
    Not that I am complaining.
     
    Most of them came looking for monsters to slaughter, and I had gladly directed them to a highly adventurous place. In fact, the place I recommended is not very far from where I live. I am not regretting that; those newbies have not returned ever since. I am the Hermit after all.
     
    And I guess she would also be glad to have some nice statues to decorate the entrance to her cave.
