the Sorceress Royal
“Ada, there is someone coming,” Riva said from where she fluttered in front of the window.
I groaned internally, not wanting to lose my concentration. “The wards will get him,” I told her as I carefully added the crushed bellflower petals to the mixture bubbling in my cauldron. A tuft of purple smoke poured out and onto my worktable. I smiled. This particular spell had taken four hours to prepare, I would not have some hopeful muck it up.
“Ada,” Riva started again, hesitantly, “he's already passed the outer wards. It looks like he's getting ready to climb the tower.”
The purple haze of my spell flickered for a moment as I took that in.
No, focus.
It doesn't matter that he crossed the outer wards, I told myself sternly, nobody has ever made it inside. The spell solidified again as I raised my hands towards it, now as a tiny ball of bright purple light.
“Suza,” I called out, hoping he would listen, “would you be a dear and

the Enchanted Baker
  “Er, Steve, why is there a dragon in your fridge?”
  I shrugged and looked up from the tiny fondant flower I was trying to put onto the smallest chocolate cake I'd ever made. “It was hot.” I told Jake.
  “The detail is amazing, man. How did you get the scales so shiny?” He asked.
  “He's not a – I wouldn't do that -” I warned but was already too late.
  Jake yelped and staggered back a step, “Dude! That thing is alive!”
  The bunny-sized dragon chose that moment to climb out of the fridge and make its way over to Jake.
  “Well, yeah.” I told my friend, trying not to laugh as he backed away from my new pet.
  “Okay,” Jake invited, now pressed with his back against the kitchen bar, “care to elaborate?”
  “So, remember that weird dude that hired me a couple weeks ago? The guy claiming to be a mage?” I waited for his nod to continu

Human Care
  “Get. In. There. You. Momzer piece of. Shtik,” I grunted as I tried to kick the fuel injector for the atmo-thrusters back into place. I overbalanced at the last one, falling onto the floor on my back. On the bright side, the injector snapped into place with a satisfying clunk.
  I stayed there for a moment, catching my breath when a shadow fell over me. Looking up, I saw an indigo-and-grey face looking down at me in worry. “Oh, hey, Kel’Jarr,” I greeted him.
  “Human-Keira,” he seemed to pause for a moment, “hey.” He continued hesitantly.
  I tried not to smile at how awkward he returned the human greeting, but it was a lost cause.    
  “Why are you currently on the floor?” he continued, “Are you injured?”
  “Nah, I’m fine. I was just in a fight with the fuel injector. I won,” I grinned at him, rolling to my feet.
  Kel’Jarr looked at the

Death's Diner
I met Death in a small ‘50s-style diner in the middle of a desert.
  He didn't seem surprised to see me, I mean, why would he. He just pushed the extra slice of lemon pie in front of him over to me and gestured for me to sit down.
  “Hello again, old friend.” I greeted him as I slid onto the cracked red leather bench. “It's been a while.”
  He looked up at that, his weathered face incredulous. “I wouldn't call two months 'a while', Tana,” he admonished with a quirk of his lips.
  I opened my mouth to respond when a waitress appeared at our table.
  “Anything else I can get you guys?” she asked.
  Death sat back and smoothed out the front of his charcoal-and-black business suit. “Two coffees please, Rosie, and she'll have the Scottish chocolate pancakes, extra side of bacon,” he nodded towards me.
  I raised an eyebrow at him, I wasn’t much of a fan of breakfast foods and he knew i

The rage burned in my stomach, the taste of revenge like blood on my tongue. The forest was filled with the sounds of battle, the screams of our oppressors. Although they were greater in number, the forest was on our side tonight.
  I spotted him then, my prey. My vision blurred red as I advanced on him, the rest of the world falling away. It felt like I was about to burst out of my skin, like the fire inside was consuming me. Burning away all that made me sane. A feral grin spread on my face as I embraced the fire, embraced the madness. “Relanius!” I called.
  The man before me turned to face me. For a moment, his face looked like that of a demon, evil curling around him in tendrils of shadow.
  “You will pay with your blood for what you did to my sister, to my people,” I growled. “I swear it!”
  “You cannot win this, Noor!” He called back. “This little rebellion will be struck down, just like the rest of your p

Flash Fic: Heritage
There was something partially blocking the door to my flat. Something heavy. I gingerly slid through the narrow space between and closed the door behind me. Someone had been in my house. It was the small things that gave it away, really. The teacup I had used this morning was washed and on the rack, the books I had been reading through no longer left open but neatly stacked. And of course one big thing; a big chest made out of dark wood sitting just inside the room, like the person carrying it in simply couldn’t lift it any longer. It could only mean one thing.
“Mum,” I said as soon as she picked up, “why is there an ancient wooden chest in my flat?”
“Oh, hi sweetie.” My mother replied, the sounds of pots and pans clanging against each other sounded in the background meaning she was just about to start cooking. “Well, remember your father’s aunt, the one who recently passed away?”
“You mean crazy aunt Irma?” A loud

  1. How long have you been on DeviantArt?
    7 years according to my profile! :wow: I'm surprised, I thought it was less hehehe Sweating a little... 

  2. What does your username mean?
    Well it's made up out of two parts, the first 'Marjolijn' is my real name and the Dutch word for Marjoram, the herb, meaning 'forever happy'. Ashara is a nickname I've had since forever and means 'ten' (apparently), is another name for the Goddess Inanna and was a name of a tree elf in the series Hercules which is where I got it from Giggle 

  3. Describe yourself in three words.
    Quirky, loving, creative

    I had to look this up.... Spring Fairy ( Spring Fairy by Marjolijn-Ashara) a drawing of a fairy sitting under a tree :)

  6. What is your favourite type of art to create?
    I love it all! But Artisan crafts hold my heart...

  7. If you could instantly master a different art style, what would it be?
    Digital! I am so jealous of people who can 'paint' with their stylus

  9. What type of art do you tend to favourite the most?
    Traditional or Digital.

  11. If you could meet anyone on DeviantArt in person, who would it be?
    I think me and humon would have a few laughs indeed La la la la 

  12. How has a fellow deviant impacted your life?
    There are plenty... Lolair inspired my pagan path, gabbyd70 made me want to try my hand at portaiture again, I could go on and on...

  13. What are your preferred tools to create art?
    Pencils, paint, beads, wire, fuse beads and my trusty markers!

  14. What is the most inspirational place for you to create art?
    I am one of the lucky ones who have a dedicated craftroom Love 

  15. What is your favourite DeviantArt memory?
    The first time I got a comment on one of my artpieces by someone from the other side of the world! That was so unreal to me, I remember walking downstairs and telling my mom 'Mom! Somebody from Israel said they liked my art!' That feeling never gets old Hug Huggle! Love Heart
