Nevermore.

By TwistedHearts  
"Back into the chamber turning, all my soul within me burning,
Soon again I heard a tapping somewhat louder than before.
`Surely,' said I, `surely that is something at my window lattice;
Let me see then, what thereat is, and this mystery explore -
Let my heart be still a moment and this mystery explore; -
'Tis the wind and nothing more!'

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,
In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.
Not the least obeisance made he; not a minute stopped or stayed he;
But, with mien of lord or lady, perched above my chamber door -
Perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door -
Perched, and sat, and nothing more.

Then this ebony bird beguiling my sad fancy into smiling,
By the grave and stern decorum of the countenance it wore,
`Though thy crest be shorn and shaven, thou,' I said, `art sure no craven.
Ghastly grim and ancient raven wandering from the nightly shore -
Tell me what thy lordly name is on the Night's Plutonian shore!'
Quoth the raven, `Nevermore.'
"
-Edgar Allan Poe; The Raven

I came up with something spooky-ish!! Wooo lol. It has a tad of paint on it too. Grin

I actually did this really quick after class since we got out early. I did this on a Mac......... so I'm hoping the colors are how they are supposed to be. But of course, I did tweak it a little on my own computer, so I'm hoping I didn't mess up the colors on every else's screens ;p. I wish my computer would be like everyone elses (color-wise lol). I still love my computer though.
