Mr. Mortality and the Heart Collector (Part 2)
(Read Part 1 here:
    They say that two years ago, the Devil did pay a visit to New York. And he came in the form of a butcher.
    It all started with the disappearances—women reported missing by their friends or families. That is if their absence was even noticed.
    The women, you see, were prostitutes and degenerates. That lot went missing all the time, and no one cared where they went; not even the police in the beginning.
    But then the first body was found, and the true shadow of fear was cast over the people of New York.
    In total, eight women were found over a period of six months, each having their chests carved open and hearts removed with the skill of a physician and the brutality of an animal. Some were found in alleys, some in the Hudson, some in dumpsters like so much discarded meat. The blood of lost sinners stained the streets of the great metropolis crimson, and America wa

Shopping Trip
(plz read description first)
    “Well,” Michael said as he walked Persephone along the makeshift thoroughfare, dodging a cart selling rat corpses and trying to ignore an aggressive palm reader, “we got ye candy. Now we ought to be findin’ Mr. Mortality before the market closes. And we really ought to stop buyin’ things…”
    Barely had the words left his mouth, when Persephone gasped aloud.
    “Michael, look at that knife!!” she squealed, giving his arm a tug and jabbing a finger at a nearby stall.
    “Percy, I don’t think we should be lookin’…”
    But she dragged him toward it anyway.
    “Look, look at it!” she cried, eyes sparkling.
    The knife was old looking and beautiful: elegant, yet sturdy, with a handle decorated with veins of swirling silver and mother of pearl. But the blade itself loo

Mr. Mortality and the Poem
“Are ye Death?” he asked the Tall Man
“Well, yes and no” he said
Is he an angel? A devil? A man?
A scarecrow in black and red?
The deal is made, a contract signed
The quest for Hearts begins
The Irish Boy and his Angel-ish “Friend”
Each seeking his own ends
One longs for Courage, the other for Hope
Both more alike than they know
Their story will start when this story ends
Born of a Ghost Knife’s glow

ID art by my awesome brother:… :heart:

Hi! I'm Donna Darling. I'm a homeschool graduate, aspiring author, and recreational artist!

I write mostly paranormal and fantasy fiction with occasional trips into mystery or sci-fi. I love history, folklore, and creepy/mysterious/fantastical stuff; perhaps a bit too much for my own good~

My current project (in development) is "Mortality"; the episodic adventures of a young man who finds himself employed as the Grim Reaper's assistant. It'll be a dark, yet also light-hearted gaslamp fantasy with quite a bit of friendship and sweetness!

You can read a test version of the first chapter here:

I believe stories have the power to change the world! But my hope is that one of my stories can change a life. Whether I succeed or not is in God's hands.

Find me on

Feel free to peruse my gallery of mostly-story-related art, and wonder with me when/if I am ever going to improve as a visual artist!

Or you can sit through a barrage of stamps:

I fav to much by HavickArt ...but I only fave what I truly like. :heart:
So, I have this time management problem (that I really need to figure out one of these days) where when I'm on a project of some kind, I feel really guilty when I'm doing anything not related to it, and when I'm focusing on my project to the point that I need to neglect my friends I feel guilty about that, and I'm not doing chores so I'm feeling guilty about that, but if I'm doing the chores I feel guilty about neglecting the other things, and when I'm doing any of the other things I feel guilty about...

You get the idea. So if you're me you get caught up in this swirling vortex of paralyzing guilt and never get anything good done!

So here's the plan. DeviantArt is one of the things I feel guilty about neglecting. So I'm just putting it out there right now: I am going to be neglecting DeviantArt. I'm going to plow through writing Mr. Mortality & the Heart Collector (posting each part as I finish it, don't worry). And then I shall return the conquering hero, clearing out DA notifications and commenting on art (and cleaning my room and researching my novel and building the Mortality website) guilt-free LIKE A BOSS.

Until then, wait for me. Pray for me. Believe in me. Pwetty pwease~
