A.B.Connors
Artist | Student | Literature
United States
A.B.Connors/shadows260 is a student at Ithaca College in Ithaca, NY. He is currently studying to receive his B.A. in Creative Writing and Doctorate of Physical Therapy, and his plans after graduation formost include shipping off the west coast and getting a dog. He hopes one day to write and work for such companies as Lionhead Studies, Bungie, Bioware, or even Bethesda Game Studios. He draws his greatest inspiration from other authors and from fantasy art, and will argue with anyone fool enough to disagree with him that Todd Lockwood and Raymond Swanland should be sited as amongst the greatest of living artists.

He occasionally, though rarely, dabbles in mediums aside from the pen and paper, and is a former varsity athlete for the Ithaca College Bombers.

Current Residence: Ithaca, New York

Eternity
'Don't go towards the light.'
   It's amusing to consider how mankind always attempts a grasp at the unknown, pointlessly peddling their theories on one another in a endless struggle to understand what, simply put, cannot be understood. Perhaps we should consider that the mind is not yet capable of comprehending the concept of 'undefined,' just as it cannot truly grasp the idea of infinity or true nothingness…
   Regardless, the way we go about it, you would think there was a bright silver path waiting for us on the other side. That when our brush with death becomes more than a passing touch there must be some clear moment for us to decide 'to go, or not to go?'
   Right?
   But no… and now, looking back, I don't fathom how I could ever have believed that.
   I remember the feeling only too well, like being suspended in warm nothingness, held firm in all directions by a gentler force than gravity. By t
The Watchmaker
Thomas sat hunched over his worktable in the corner of the dark shop, tired green eyes peering alternatively through his mixed set of lenses and magnifying glasses. The slim silver tools in his thin fingers never once clinked together as he worked, turning over the dozens of tiny metal gears and springs laid out before him, checking each one studiously for the hundredth time that week.
He didn't know what he was looking for. He knew he'd find nothing. The pieces were perfect, crafted and meticulously cut from the finest metals. They gleamed in the light of the table's single candle, reflecting the shifting shadows that flicked across the room. He'd never seen anything like them in all his years—much less held such things in his hands—and Thomas' aged heart beat furiously as he gazed at them through the glass.
The Pale Gentleman hadn't been lying… There was certainly something special about these parts…
Elizabeth, the old watchmaker prayed silently, I hope

Thanks for inviting me to join, but I'm going to have to decline. I don't have any 5 star critiqued works, and I'm fine with that. I don't do art so other people can judge it, I do it for my own satisfaction. If other people like it, cool, but I've never asked for a critique or someone else's opinion on my work. That being said, feel free to check out my gallery and use anything you like in your group [link]

Why have you invited me? According to the group rules I need 4+ stars of critique on my work to submit it or I need to have a DD. I don't have a DD neither I request critique for my works, I don't have premium.

Long time no talk. just thought I'd see how things are going - have you been writing much lately? I sent you a "note" back in March and didn't get a response. The offer still stands if you are interested in a beta reading exchange.

I just set up a website at msmanz.com. Check it out when you've got a moment.
