• “Don’t you get it?” she demanded, “There’s no version of this where you come out on top,”
    “You don’t know that,”
    “Yes, I do,” she said, “I’ve been where you are. And this? It only ends one way,”

  • “Be careful what you wish for,” the spirit said as she faded from sight, her voice echoing in the empty air, “Some doors should remain unopened…”

    She stands on the edge of the cliffs, eyes closed and face turned towards the setting sun. The wind is relentless, tugging at her clothes and turning her hair into a banner of scarlet and gold.

  • S.C. Lovelace commented on the post, broken 2 years, 5 months ago

    “I was broken a LONG time ago,” she snarled, lips and teeth stained red with her own blood, “You can’t hurt me,”
    He chuckled. “Maybe,” he said, “Maybe not,” he picked up a small, sharp knife, the edge catching the light, “But I’m going to enjoy trying,”

  • Her kiss ignited a fire inside her, burning her from the inside out. Her world dissolved to her warmth, to the myriad of places their bodies met.

  • She whirled around, looking more startled than a deer realizing it was firmly in a skilled hunter’s sights. “Wh-who’s there?!” she cried into the darkness, eyes wide and darting.
    But there was nothing there. Or,at least, nothing she could see.

  • S.C. Lovelace commented on the post, catch 2 years, 5 months ago

    Your hair blowing like hand-spun silk,
    Eyes like bluest cornflowers,
    Skin imperfectly perfect,
    Every time I catch my breath, you take it away.

  • S.C. Lovelace commented on the post, shock 2 years, 10 months ago

    Eyes wide and heart threatening to pummel its way out from beneath her breast, she fixed her with a powerful glare as soon as the shock wore off enough for her to do so. “Are you trying to give me a heart attack?” she demanded, her voice unnaturally high, “What is WRONG with you?!”

  • The room is open, circular, made of windows rather than walls. The domed ceiling stretches high overhead, all metal work and etchings from a time gone by.

  • S.C. Lovelace commented on the post, spiked 5 years, 1 month ago

    She’d only just raised the glass to her mouth only for her lips to press against the warm skin of Talia’s hand. “Uhm…” she blinked, turning her attention to the woman beside her, “Can I help you with something there, T?”
    “You don’t wanna drink that,” the dark-skinned woman said, pulling her hand back only to wipe the palm on the…[Read more]

    “Cursed to drink the blood of the innocent and haunt the night until the end of time, blah, blah, blah; you’ve heard the story a thousand times, right? Well, it’s crap. Total crap,”
    “Oh, yeah. Vamps’re always trying to play up the whole ‘dark and mysterious’ thing but, hang around ’em long enough, and the mystery? Poof, gone. Minus…[Read more]

  • “You seem to be fully integrated now; how does that make you feel?”
    “Seriously? Because I hate this place, that’s why. And now, just in case I didn’t have enough problems, I have to hate myself too, because you’ve made me into exactly what this fucking place wants me to be. I hate it. I hate you. Basically, I hate everything…[Read more]

    “Would you like some tea?”
    “No. Thank you,” she added, stepping further into the room, careful to close the door behind her. “I shouldn’t want to be missed,”
    Irah hummed in agreement, moving to fill his own cup. “Then to what do I owe the pleasure of this meeting, young Huntress?”
    Wringing her hands together behind her back, she stepped…[Read more]

  • S.C. Lovelace commented on the post, wallow 5 years, 1 month ago

    “It does one no good to wallow, dear,” the elder woman said, resting her hand in the center of her back, “The past is in the past and cannot be undone,”
    “Do you think I don’t know that?” she snarled, or tried too. It was hard to summon the anger, now. Honestly, right now it was hard to feel anything but pain.
    She tutted in a matter so…[Read more]

  • “But I don’t WANT a new boyfriend,” she protested weakly, “Honestly, I didn’t even want the one I HAD which is why I don’t have one anymore,”
    She shushed her. “Sweetie, that’s crazy talk! Of course you want a boyfriend; just because things didn’t work out with Dylan-”
    “Or Jack or Cody or Rob,” she supplied dryly.
    Melanie offered her a smile…[Read more]

  • “They say he’s one of the most eligible bachelors on the continent,” she whispered, painted lips hidden behind the shine of her champagne glass.
    Elena hummed, “Do they now?” she asked, the question clearly rhetorical, “Well, whoever they are, they clearly haven’t spent much time in his company,”
    Margaret frowned, “How do you know?”
    Smirking at…[Read more]

  • S.C. Lovelace commented on the post, globe 5 years, 1 month ago

    Fingers skating idly over the globe, she flicked her wrist and sent it spinning on it’s metal axis. “This is the world we live in, Saris,” she said, nodding towards the rapidly turning sphere. “Ever-moving. Ever-changing. Chaotic. Completely out of our control,” she slapped her palm down on the center of the ball, bringing it to an immediate halt,…[Read more]

    “Don’t you understand yet, Inyri? With the Republic you can fly but with the Sarik…” he smirked, “With us, you can soar,”
    “I already gave my answer,” she snarled, her chin raised and her eyes defiant. “I will NEVER yield to you,”

  • S.C. Lovelace commented on the post, trainer 5 years, 1 month ago

    “And you, sir? What is your place here?” she asked, turning her attention to the elder gentleman. In her opinion, he seemed too old for a horse hand, but perhaps his years spoke of experience?
    “I am the Royal Trainer; Timen Jeranous,”
    “I have heard the name,” she said, inclining her head, “It is well known, even to my people,”
    “You honor me,…[Read more]

    “While you hide your head deeper in that self-absorbed cocoon of yours, our people are slaughtered!”
    “There is nothing more I can do for them, Tera,” he drawled, shaking his head. “Not without risking war,”
    “We’re already at war!” she snarled, slamming her hands onto the table. “Naming it so would at least give our people the right to fight back!”
