I changed some little things in the story according to the comment I got. I don't think it's necessary for the plot to read it, but you can always check the improvement :P (from line 11 from the start of this part).
Aye, newgrounders who prolly won't read this,
I decided to release the continuation of my story in progress (if you haven't read the previous two releases I highly recommend you to read those first, otherwise this story might make no sense at all to you).
Also, I was thinking of making this the last release, and maaaybe release it again when it's fully done. So I can fix things in the previous content and make the plot more awesome! There isn't really a plot yet, but still.. Too, there is the risk of someone, of the few who notice my existence :P, stealing, or "taking the idea", of my work. And I'd rather not have that.
Anyway, without further ado, here the continuation of the story (part three):
He kept walking for some more miles until he saw something glimmering in the distance, and stopped for a moment. The air seemed to have gotten heavier now, it felt like he could barely breathe it. What was waiting for him over there? He had no idea and no plan whatsoever concerning defending himself, if needed. So what was he going to do if the creature appeared to be aggressive? Fleeing was an option, but maybe the thing was faster and could get to him in no time. And beside that he had no weapons, and his hand-to-hand combat wasn't that good, not good at all actually. But on top of that he really wanted something to happen in his life, and in High Standard this wasn't very likely to happen again, not anywhere else as well. Ah, he probably had nothing to worry anyway, by the looks of it the creature must have fallen from a really high distance so it would be at least too unconscious to react properly.
With that he continued walking to the glimmering and quickly reached the source of it.
At first he couldn't see a thing. From the dark and eerie environment under the trees, his new surroundings were a big change, and too much for his eyes to cope. Slowly they got used to the ocean of light and started to distinguish things. He now saw why this enormous source of light didn't bother him when he was walking to it, for the creature lied in a bowl-shaped pile of shattered wood, but the trees around it were still standing as if nothing happened. They must have been blocking all that light too a faint glimmering, he thought. He looked at the pile of what first were large strong trees and wondered how heavy the creature would be, since it shattered these kind of trees like that. As far as he knew the trees of which this forest existed were this really strong pine trees that could survive many of the bitterest cold winters, so the creature must have been or really heavy, or it really fell from a great distance. Slowly his gaze moved to the creature in the middle of that ruined piece of nature. Lots of light was coming from it and he could barely recognize something what he remembered to be an existing object in this bath of light his eyes were feasting on. He thought a bit about why the creature could emit so much light while it didn't seem to be doing that when it was falling from the sky. Was it a process that could only occur in a certain environment? Or when a certain thing happened, and only in a unique order of events? He didn't know, he couldn't know.. What was that creature and where did it came from, was the question that troubled his mind continually since he took notice of the creature falling it's fall of death. Or was it a fall of death? Was it really dead? A normal human would have died falling from this height, but then again, a normal human would have shattered to a million pieces instead of these strong trees that were laying about now.
He backed down a bit, he wasn't sure anymore if the creature would be unconscious, now it survived it's fall.
He could see clearer now, his eyes were done feasting on the light and sending too many signals to his brains, and covering his eyes a bit with his hand he observed the creature.
He now saw where the vast amount of light came from, the creature's skin - or clothing, he didn't know what to recognize as clothing and what as skin about this foreign living being - was made of some sort of insanely reflecting substance and with the trees all shattered the full moon hadn't much trouble illuminating the skin, or full armor, of the creature. He actually couldn't imagine the reflecting substance being skin, it looked so polished, so neat and symmetric, a bit like the cover of a machine, but not that blunt. This creature somehow had some kind of - how do you put that? - grace. It looked kind of.. pretty to him.
What? What did he think there? Had he hit his head somewhere while running? It was a weird creature that had fallen from the sky, how could he - not think that pretty? What was weird in thinking something pretty? It was an opinion, that's all.
While arguing with himself about the moral of having an opinion about unnatural business, he observed the creature.
And a completely unrelated picture for you guys :P
Hello ^^, here you go with the latest news (now at least). Maybe you'll like it, maybe you won't, for there's only the continuation of a story in this post. If you didn't read the first part, you should do that; otherwise it makes no sense to you.
He looked at it more closely. It was nearer now, you could see some shape in it. While it drew nearer, it looked to him as if a giant bird had some problems with flying, the thing didn't try to move the extensions which, he thought, were wings.
Further down it fell, now it was already big enough to cover a part of the night sky and thanks to that the silhouette of the thing could be seen much more clearly now. A sudden thought popped up in his mind while observing it, but he quickly tried to forget it; devils didn't exist. But now he was thinking about it, forgetting it didn't help much, it really looked to him like some sort of devil. Big wings shaped like those of bats, dark red skin, for as long as he could see it, and the fact that it was flying in the sky, that is a description of an average devil.
And in addition to that, it really looked like a human, apart from the skin color and the wings of course, but it couldn't be a human; how on earth did it manage to be falling from that distance in the air, then?
Wondering about that, he didn't notice that the course in which the creature was falling, had changed. Before it seemed as if it was going to fall on top of one of the houses in the centre of the village but now it was heading for the small forest in the east-side of the village.
He followed it some more with his eyes until it almost reached the forest-ground, then it disappeared behind a tree. A sting of annoyance flew through his brain, why did that tree had to grow just there, couldn't it grow somewhere else? At last something unusual was going to happen in his life and now some random tree blocked his view. It couldn't be helped, this was the first thing in about seven years that had finally caught his curiosity and now he wanted to find out what it exactly was.
Not knowing the consequences he got to the door and took his jacket. For a short moment he looked back at the forest, it seemed as if there was a bright glow about it, but that could be just his imagination as well. He sighed, thinking about what may wait for him in that forest, and walked away into the night.
After he had walked for a couple of miles he arrived at the border of the forest, nothing special had happened on his way to, as always. Though, there seemed to be floating a peculiar little smell that, to him, reeked of something exciting to happen. He pulled up his jacket a little bit higher to try blocking the cold air from floating underneath his clothes and freezing his limbs. Maybe he should just go back and turn on the heating, maybe even read a nice book or watch a movie, he didn't know what to do anyway, because he never ever had something like this before. What would you've expected else here, in High Standard.. And it's not like it can be dangerous, even if the creature that had fallen down survived the landing, it would be at least knock-out. Apparently that thought convinced him of going, because just when he finished thinking it, he shrugged and entered the forest.
At first the forest wasn't that dark as it seemed from afar, but the more the distance he walked, the closer the trees grew, blocking the little moonlight that was still coming from above and making the forest look much more evil than before, but that didn't scare him. On the contrary actually, he was looking at the trees admiringly. He never knew that these beautiful trees were growing here; outside the forest it always looked miserably and grey, but now he was actually in the forest they had this wonderful blue glow and these perfectly shaped branches that looked just like large bony hands, stretched out as if guarding their kind.
He tried to remember where the creature had landed, and came to the conclusion it would have been better if he had brought a map with him. He looked up and remembered reading something about finding the north, south, west and east using the direction the moon, or sun, was going. He stood still for a bit and watched the moon in its movements, very slowly he saw it creeping to the left. And the sun comes up where the moon is coming from, he made a little calculation in his mind, so that means the east was on his right. Quite pleased with himself that he had successfully solved that problem he started walking eastwards.
And? You liked it :)? Please leave a comment if you can spare one ^^.
Also, completely unrelated but a really cute story:
The fable of the moon and the giraffe:
Is anyone wondering why the moon have a crescent form ?
The girafe is hindered by the moonlight, she can't sleep !
Every month, she starts to eat the moon
She can't make short work of it otherwise she may choke...
so, she nibbles pieces, drinking some the clouds sometimes.
After 14 days, the sky is entirely black
So the giraffe take a nap.
Does anyone know why the moon is back after ?
Nor the giraffe either me know it. ^^

Drawing was also made by Aquasixio, he has some pretty good artwork and you can find his Deviant here xD.
EDIT: after someone else criticized my story, I changed some bits, not very large changes but it should have a better construction now :P.
EDIT2: changed some bits in the structure (again..) after the hugely appreciated critics of MaartenC, someone please tell me something about the length of the sentences now? I tried my best on changing that, and put some 'semicolon, is it?' in it as well.
Yay, indeed, it has come this far that I, at last, make my second news post.
It has been a long time since I made the last one, I believe. Don't know for sure though.
Anyway, as you may have guessed while reading the title, I made a little story for you ^^.
Nono, you can thank me later.
But seriously, I don't expect anything good from it, since it is my first story in English (my English vocabulary isn't that big).
Well, I only want to say more that this idea for a story came from a drawing I made :P. I'll include it in the post so you can laugh about my sucky sketches too.
Here we go:
It was night; a nice, cold, winter night.
No cloud could be seen above the rooftops of High Standard.
The village lived up to its name, since every year a garden competition, every month a neighbourhood meeting and every week house inspection was given. House inspection in a way, that some people walk by and 'inconspicuously' look through every window to see if there was anything suspicious going on.
Yes, the people in High Standard were indeed very social, and that's why he hated this place.
He had already lived here for over 5 years and every year life became worse in this dreadful, boring place. Nothing happened around here, not even the slightest change in this perfect little village-life. All the days he lived here had been boring and if you'd ask him what he had done on a day, any day, he wouldn't be able to remember it, every day was the same; every day, working in that old shoelace factory where the cobwebs were dripping from the ceiling, so old and antique was that building and its contents.
Therefore, he decided to live his real life at night.
At night, everything was darker; seemed more interesting, mysterious maybe. He often went outside for a little evening-walk, just to breathe the fresh and nice nightly air.
But today he didn't go for a walk. He just stayed home, along with the neighbour's cat he had to babysit for four weeks; the owners were on holiday.
He didn't know why, but he felt like it would become an interesting night.
Silently, he looked up to the stars, which were blinking in high contrast with the pitch-black sky. It reminded him of old days. He used to watch the stars every night, with his mother. Maybe he got the interest for nightly activity from her. She was very interested in stars, planets and all the other unknown things that were hovering in outer space. Unfortunately, she wasn't with him any more, he had really liked her.
Suddenly, he saw something moving in the sky and immediately his thoughts were back to modern life. He squeezed his eyes to tiny slits, in an attempt to see more clearly, but it didn't work. The only thing he could see, was a small black dot, moving across the stars, growing bigger. It couldn't be a plane or a helicopter, they don't move like that.
He looked at it more closely. It was nearer now, you could see some shape in it. While it drew nearer, it looked to him as if a giant bird had some problems with flying. The thing didn't try to move the extensions which, he thought, were wings.
Further down it fell.
Yes, to be continued >:). Or not, of course. Maybe I want to keep this idea for myself ^^.
And I'm not gonna tell what it is on the picture, it would be a huge spoiler, and I don't want you to know what's happening in a story that isn't even fully written, now would I :)?
Samwise, signing off.
*idd, Samwise from LotR. And it seems I can't ask if you got a problem around here, so I won't :P.
So, I was told to make my first news post.
Don't even know what to write in this -_-'.
O yeah! Maybe I'm gonna translate some stuff of a book I'm writing and put that online :D (to see if I can write well, or just plain suck in it).
Aaand ofcourse some drawings ^^. I had this idea were I wanted to draw the burning of a witch, and then paint it to try if I can make certain light-colours and reflections and stuff :P, but I don't know if I'll be able to do that. Guess I'll just try it, if I can get my lazy butt of my chair ofcourse..
Maybe even an animation, but I'm not very funny xD. So a funny short animation is almost impossible. And I need to learn Flash some more..
OK, I just typed stuff, not knowing what a damn news post has to include :P. So I guess that was it...
