Journal History

Ash sat cross-legged on her floor, staring at the canvas in front of her. She hadn't touched any of her supplies since before Tristan died. Sighing, she shakily picked up her brush and began her work.

Two hours later, she finally gave up, leaving the canvas to dry and going to the bathroom to clean her brushes. After all of that was put away, she sat in the bathtub and began to cry. She couldn't do it. Her hands were ruined beyond repair. She'd been silly to think that she could try to make anything of worth... she was useless, just like the canvas in the other room. 
  • Mood: Miserable
  • Listening to: Water sloshing around the tub
  • Watching: My ruined hands
  • Drinking: My tears


Ashton-Hadley-RP's Profile Picture
Ashton "Ash" Briar Hadley
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United Kingdom
Age: 23

Gender: Female

Occupation: Officially a translator by profession, is also working hard to become an author and artist. Will also be a baby-minder.

Appearance: 5’2”; long, slightly wavy hair that curls at the ends; borderline blonde/brunette; usually either has her hair down or in a herringbone braid; hazel eyes that are predominantly green (usually, though depends on what she’s wearing); slightly “Asian” eye shape; tanned; square, dark purple “nerd” glasses; wears "bohemian" style clothes, mostly hand-me-downs and thrift store finds.

Newly graduated from university, Ashton is working on publishing her written/illustrated works as well as finding clients for art commissions. Of yet no one of consequence has discovered her talents, leaving her a bit of a starving artist. She grew up in the States, though went abroad to Japan for school. Her mother is half Okinawan and half Spanish, and his dad is half Norwegian and half assorted Caucasian. Ash has no siblings and no first cousins that she grew up with, but she has a very large extended family all over the States and Okinawa, the latter which she visited when she studied abroad. She loves dabbling in whatever catches her interest and often incorporates that into her writing. Ashton especially loves getting into the psychology of her characters because she hopes that she can use that knowledge to try to understand people in the real world. Ash has great ambitions for her writing and art, but she doesn’t always know how to bring her visions to life (as in publish her works, etc.).

Ah, how Sherlyn hated the summertime. The list of the things that made her hate this dreaded season so much could go on for ages. The heat was one thing, but the noise of children laughing and shrieking in the parks and the noise of people carrying on their daily errands just added up to the pale girl's irritation towards this season. The said girl was lying on the cool ground of her flat, dressed in the lightest of clothes she could find. An expression of discomfort was showing very clearly on her face, reflecting her sour mood. Dark grumbles leaving her mouth, the brunette hastily changed into a white sundress with a floral design, composing herself and walking to the doorway, dressing herself properly for walking out. She left in a surprisingly speedy time, her face brisk. Sherlyn didn't really have any plans on what to do on that summer day, as there were no interesting cases, she decided to simply take a walk around the area to calm her nerves. Heading nowhere in particular, Sherlyn absent mindedly walked to the nearby park, an unconcentrated expression crossing her pale features.

Greg let himself in. Ashton had given him a key months ago (before... well, before everything) and he was relieved to find it still turned in the lock. Greg stepped inside tentatively and glanced around, the small bunch of flowers cradled gently in his arm.
"Jeremy? Ash? Anyone home?" he called out, "It's only me."

((This has taken far too long and I'm sorry and I'm a horrible person.))

((You're fine! :hug: How are you?))

Jeremy had gone out to the store quickly, leaving Ash dozing off on the sofa. Greg's voice roused the blonde from her napping. She sat up tiredly and rubbed her eyes with the back of her hand.

"Hey, Greg," she mumbled tiredly. "How're you?"

((Not too bad. Drowning in revision for my last two exams... how about you? :D))

"Ashton." Greg sighed with relief, crossing to the sofa and perching on its arm, "I'm absolutely great."
Bit of a lie there, Greg.
"What about you?" he asked, "I haven't seen you since you were in hospital, and... well, you look so much better, Ash."

((Good. Starting school in less than a week XD))

"I'm doing well," Ash said, smiling up at him. "A lot better, yeah. Not really up and around yet, so I'm glad you still have that key."

She held up her gnarled hands which were still in bandages, "My hands aren't really working yet, so I couldn't have unlocked the door."

((I'm sort of trying to get up to date with all of the characters and I read about Tristan. I've seen him mentioned in past RPs and I thought he was adorable, so this was a bit of a shocker!))

((I'm so sorry about that! D: Yeah, I was planning on drawing it out a little more, and then we ended up having him die a little earlier than we planned. :hug: I'm glad you thought he was adorable! He was a joy to write, and I'll hopefully do some flashbacks with him.))
