    There is no freedom on land like that granted by the waters of the endless sea — capricious and calming all at once, and, yet, driven ever on by the journey to know what it is that lies beyond that furthest horizon, and the yearning to know what mysteries lay hidden in those steadfast and fathomless depths.

    “You can’t be serious.”

    “Of course I am.” The Baron raised an eyebrow in smug amusement. “You are the governess to a young witch. It is a part of the job — risks must be taken.”

    Aggie sighed and turned to face him. “You do understand that I am not a cat, I presume?”

    “Naturally,” came the reply. The Baron sniffed delicately and gave her a…[Read more]

    “You are… certain this will work?”

    The sea-witch nodded. “I have seen this before, many a time in ages past. But you must be willing — it will not work otherwise, I am afraid, and everything here will be lost forever.”

    Celia bit her lower lip as she once again looked pensively at the site before her. Her decision had already been made,…[Read more]

    “Again.”

    With a grimace, Lune turned away from the older man and looked back to the large black stone barring the path. He held his hands out before him, fingers splayed and trembling with the effort, as he closed his eyes and summoned the last dregs of his energy. He felt it crackle through his body, fanning from that focal point behind his…[Read more]

    “Alright,” I began, “I am fine with the idea of me being a mouse. Even at the start of all this, it wasn’t too strange a concept to understand. But what about you?” I gave Kitty a pointed look. “I’ve been here for the better part of a year, and aside from a few minor things, I’ve yet to see you act particularly cat-like.” I grimaced, steeling…[Read more]

    The Baron frowned at her. “Madame,” he said, “I do not know if it has escaped your notice, but I am a cat.” His eyes narrowed, and Agatha decided that at that moment, the baron looked very much like a rather put-out and dangerous feline. “All I want is for the young mistress to come into her majority at the appropriate time with the proper…[Read more]

    “Some people collect buttons, while others collect bottle caps or stamps or miniatures of ships in bottles – my interests simply happen to lie in areas rather far removed from the general populace.”

    A- seemed hesitant. “But sir,” she began as politely as she was able, “you collect human skulls.”

    The baron tapped his cane on the floor and…[Read more]

    “It’s beautiful.” She took the object and turned it over curiously. “But what is it?”

    The other woman shrugged her shoulders. “I don’t know,” came the reply.”It’s true that my father’s people are known for their skills in craftsmanship and smithing, but also for their abstract and curious way of thinking and creating.” She looked down and…[Read more]

    In her mind, her anger takes the form is like a tsunami. It crashes ferociously against the shores, breaking against those hapless victims unfortunate enough to face her wrath. Her anger is not a fire – fire leaves behind ash, and from it life can still be renewed. But the sea is a merciless mistress, tamed by no one, and a rage such as hers…[Read more]

    “Did you really think nothing was going to happen?” He glared at the small figure kneeling on the grass in front of him. “They faced the Marquise’s personal guard – the chances of them surviving were slim, but even knowing that you went ahead allowed them to go through with their suicide plan.” Elec crossed his arms in front of his chest. “I’ve…[Read more]

  • LordSriya commented on the post, willful 5 years, 6 months ago

    People frequently tell me that I am a willful child, and that being so strong-headed will one day do more harm than good to me if I’m not careful. Whenever people tell me this, my natural response is to cross my arms over my chest, look them straight in the eye, and tell them in a particularly matter-of-fact manner that my willfulness is simply a…[Read more]

    There was a time, once, when the bones of the earth were bound together by an ancient power, and the trees whispered amongst themselves, and the mountains contained an infinite wisdom wisdom – and in the dark of the ageless wood, the false god remained still in eternal slumber.

    “It’s going to fall if you don’t hold it properly.”

    A grunt of pain preceded his reply. “I know,” he said pointedly. “But you have to remember, I’m the one doing all of the heavy lifting around here.”

    She frowned at him. “And of course, I, being the typical fragile female that I am, am doing absolutely nothing at all.” She grimaced and…[Read more]

    When the first drum beat sounded, the world around her went silent, while the second swiftly brought darkness. She did not hear the dull roar of the audience that sat before her as they spoke amongst themselves, nor did she see their faces as they watched her critically, judging her every movement. The third beat reverberated through her body,…[Read more]

    She simply stared at him. “Giraffes don’t have three heads.”

    You could barely see it, the tiny spark in his eyes as he looked at the small creature cradled gently in his tiny hands. He had always been a reticent child, but what he lacked in exuberance was more than made up for in his sincerity.

    “Her wing – you fixed it!” His voice was soft, like always, but she could still hear the relief and joy in his…[Read more]

    I remember your eyes – they screamed accusations at me from across the crowded room. Your mouth was no better, lips pressed into a hard, thin line, a grim reversal of the smile I had always been so familiar with.
