Risen: Right now life brims with purpose. You are working hard but I don't sense it is too taxing; you feel almost energized. You have a goal and you are reaching toward it, you sense it within your grasp and you feel the power contained within it. It's a short-term goal, like school or something else. And once obtained, watch out world, unleashed will be the dark, razor sharp focus of the risen. (But you're really a good guy, so your powers will be used for that purpose.)
xNTP / Edahn: Your life is static right now and you feel directionless. You are surrounded by people, but you feel like they aren't helping or don't understand you. Maybe they are even interfering somehow. So you insert yourself into life and situations by getting attention the only way you know you can: by being the clown, the "silly seal" in the bottom corner of that pic. And even then, it is unsatisfying; why doesn't it make you feel happy anymore? Does anyone even get to see the "real" you? What's the next step?
See, maybe I shouldn't post ...
I know too, that sometimes a picture is just a picture.
