SoA Book II: Chapter 4

Out of Darkness… Out of Light

The past a thing we can’t escape,
Sometimes now is still too late.
Bonds of light and love hold fast,
They say that hardship never lasts.

The view from his penthouse was, Gabriel had to admit, amazing. Surrounded by glass, he could see everything. Far below, the main thoroughfare ran through the heart of the city like a river of light. Tiny lights twinkled and shined, tiny stars that joined their fellows to become the supernova that was this city at night. Darkness tried so very hard to swallow that light, to banish it and make it no more. But, humanity did not give in, and it did not yield. Rather, it brought fourth the light to combat the darkness, that supernova in the terrestrial landscape. It was beautiful, and he loved it very much.
Gabriel sipped his brandy and looked on in silence, a Bose sound system playing Chopin softly in the background. There was no light in his simple but very trendy penthouse, save for t

Secrets kept from dearest friends,
To keep them safe from troubled times.
The truth revealed and made amends,
To pays to have some faith sometimes.

"Geez, Bec, what are you trying to do, take off her head?"  Ren's voice held a slight rebuke as he walked over and held out a hand for Meg to take.  He'd been watching Beccah spar with the Awakening Sapphire Prince with a growing frown as the Watcher had pressed the girl harder and harder.
The trio had left Ren's office and headed to one of the many dojo style training rooms located in the compound beneath Adion's Fall.  This room was thirty feet by thirty feet, gym mats covering both the floor and all four walls to reduce the likelihood of serious injury.  Along two of the walls were racks of rattan weapons used in training.  Though they were soft enough not to draw blood, they were still quite capable of breaking bones and producing some very livid bruis

Memories of the Cup of Chaos

The depth of rivers running deep,
So too the secrets people keep.
Things are rarely as they seem,
Especially when the Faery dream.

He ran an aristocratic hand through his dark blonde hair, perfectly trimmed and styled to appear wild while actually completely controlled. Everything in his life was that way: the illusion of chaos that masked the completely controlling hand that guided it. He hefted a sigh, closing his slightly almond shaped light brown eyes. In his head, he tried to push out all of the confusing thoughts which assailed him, each one clamoring that it was the most pressing, out of his mind. He sought the complete stillness within, the well of Zen at his core. Gabriel did not tolerate confusion, nor did her allow himself to grow overwhelmed. No, he took the time to find his center and think clearly.
"Well?" Came the irritated voice of the woman seated across from him. She was one of those blue blood types who came fr

SoA: Book II - Ch 1
-Chapter 1-
A Walk in the Park
Devlin stuffed her hands into her pockets and focused on the road ahead of her. The wind was chill, its fingers tugging at her jacket impatiently, but she took little heed of it. As usual, she had too much on her mind to be bothered by something like a biting wind. There was also the fact that she was a Light Fae, and such mundane things like an early autumn wind little affected her. It was this very state of being Fae that was the exact thing which caused her present state of deep thoughtfulness.
It was sometimes hard to retrace the steps that had led her to her current place in life, this new reality that was so similar and yet so completely removed from the life she had once known. She still went to school, and was managing rather well as a Junior at the local high school, still lived at home with her parents, still lived something most would call the perfect and absolutely ordinary life. And yet, she was everything but ordinary. Unlike

Personal Quote: The difference between Techno and Industrial is whether or not you want to slit your wrists.
SO the first Valentine's Day married was awesome.  The new hubby cooked me an amazing dinner, and was a total sweetheart.  I'm a lucky girl.

I am trying to decide whether or not to go back to school... I REALLY need some PHP knowledge.  I fail so hard at a bunch of the things that I want to be able to do because I just have NO working knowledge other than kinda reverse engineering it and muddling through.  I have a project that REALLY needs a compitent PHP programmer.  So... if anyone knows one, please let me know.  

I have been a shit and done almost no writing in the last two weeks.  With some of the other stuff going on, I have let myself push it onto the back burner.  Shame on me.
