At some point in your career as an artist, you'll be asked to create artwork on commission. Whilst it's a wonderful feeling, being able to make money creating art, it's completely different than selling a personal piece you previously completed - accepting a commission means entering a temporary relationship with your client. As simple it may sounds, there's a lot to satisfying customer's needs, sometimes the best you can do is to say no.

Stockholme Syndrome Chapter 1 (RusPru APH)Prussia walked slowly across the room. He didn't recognize the room but it didn't seem important enough to stop.

A fierce snowstorm raged outside of the windows and obscured any view of the scenery beyond.Stockholme Syndrome Chapter 1 (RusPru APH) by *sailorgreywolf
Prussia only spared a moment to look out the window before continuing to walk across the room. He wasn't sure why he was walking; all he knew was that he must. His destination came into sight, or at least it seemed so. On the opposite wall, the one he was walking towards, there was a full length mirror. He walked straight up to the mirror and stared at his reflections.
He could still see himself in the shape of the face and the confusion in the eyes. But, this could not be him. The man in the mirror had violet eyes and his hair was light beige. He put his hand up and ran it through his hair, which he knew was white. The man in the mirror did the same. It wasn't possible that he was seeing his reflection, because he
Legacy Ch 10 [APH Mexico fic]America laughed "She was right about that, you are one hell of a lover". Mexico smirked "Of course I am, why else would I have so many issues with girls wanting to be with me". America took another drink of tequila "So, just to make sure, you were physically 16 and you had an affair with a boy, were engaged to a girl and fucking your teacher's colony". Mexico nodded "You know, when you say it like that, it makes me sound like a horny little slut. I have to point out that I am cutting out all the long boring parts to make it a better story". America brushed his cheek lightly "Or maybe you are a little bit of a whore".Legacy Ch 10 [APH Mexico fic] by *sailorgreywolf
Mexico playfully brushed off America's hand "If I were, it wouldn't have taken so long for me to sleep with you". America smiled back playfully "If I remember correctly, I tried to sleep with you several times and you pushed me away." Mexico looked despondently into his glass of tequila "I didn't want to fuck up any more lives. Because in case you are wondering, there were

The soft sound of footsteps came from the hall, but the man paid no attention to them, surely they were just one of his sisters. He returned to the map, taking no mind of the footsteps stopping outside the door. For a second the only sound was the sputtering as the candle choked on its own wax, then another sound permeated the room. The soft and sensual sound of metal sliding out of a leather holster met this ears and he looked up in time to see a silver gun barrel.
The silver glowed like fire in the dying light, a color that was echoed in the hair of the person holding the gun. The blue of his military uniform faded to the black of the night around him, but the eyes were unmistakably red. And how red they were, a red that perfectly matched the armband he wore. It was a d
