Oath -- rough draftI had a choice to make. It was simple, or at least was deemed as such by my superiors. I committed my life to an oath, a series of sentences that branded and controlled my life—almost as much as Eva Castle controlled me. I’m constantly torn between my honor and this woman. I prayed that somehow I could attain happiness in both spectrum's—but I had been denied. It was no secret that she was off limits, as she was a winged being, imprisoned by my kind, by the same humans I swore to protect. Disobeying the crown would surely be a sinister price, but yet would I be willing to pay to become the hand that was to save her? Or was I to leave her behind?Oath -- rough draft9 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Her sterling heart guiding her through
The world that hunted her down,
For lack of anything better to do.
At night she'd cry over her small silver locket
A photo of the father she lost hidden inside
Impelling her to pursue the stage of the opera
She was holding tenacious even when she cried.
For years they jeered in her face
Words cutting like the glaze of a knife.
Yet when she got where she needed to be,
It was just another day in the life.

It was a truly lovely day as Prince Roland, perched regally atop his magnificent steed, ambled along an old trail through the Forgotten Forest. Though he was alone, and hopelessly lost, the Prince's countenance still carried the haughty mark of his royal station: the chin firmly squared and angled so the tip of his impressively shaped nose always pointed precisely between his horse's ear tips; finely shaped lips pursed ever so slightly so as to hide any hint of real emotion; and velvet brown eyes carefully narrowed as they peered down the sides of the afore ascribed nose. A particular source of vanity, his long flaxen hair flowed in elegant waves to a precise length just below his shoulder blades, the multitude of blond and light brown tones shimmering each time the strands stirred.
As he'd been taught from birth, the Prince was very careful to always retain his regal bearing. After all, one never knew when a peasant might suddenly app

"W-What's the meaning of this Princess?!" Link cried into the empty darkness around him. He heard Princess Zelda giggle in the air, and then heard her faint voice.
"Link, I told you, you are meant to show Ganondorf his light, you'll figure it out, don't worry. See you later!" And then there was silence.
"PRINCESS! WAIT!" Link yelled. There was no response. "Damnit..." He cursed. He looked around, barely able to see with the weak red light of the area.
"Well, if I'm going to get out of here, I'm going to have to..." Link froze, going pale. "I-I'm going to have to find G-Ganondorf..." He whispered. Instinctively, he reached back for the Master Sword, only to find that he did not have any of his weapons with him.
"What? Gah!" Link threw his hands up in defeat. "Whatever!" He headed forward, to look for Ganondorf.
Later, Link still had not found Ganondorf.

Pucca RequestI used to hate the rain. It was raining when my former beloved Garu finally told me how he truly felt. It was raining when he broke my heart. He ran off, like he always did, only to never return home alive.Pucca Request4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
It was raining on that day too. The foreign warriors brought Garu back. They told us he died a hero. I began to cry. I cried for him, even thought I knew he didn't love me the way I loved him. Everyone cried in Suka Village.
Strangely, no one bothered the village after Garu died. It was as if Suka Village was granting a grace period. Albio and Ching became Suka Village's new protectors, and they proved to be a great team. They pleaded for me to join them, but after three months, I had turned my sorrow and heartbreak into anger. I told them no and shunned them from that point on. I was no longer the sweet, earnest dumpling-haired girl everyone loved and adored. I no longer carried a torch for Garu. If I ever wanted to get over him, I had to change. A year passed

Stunning violet orbs seemed to stare straight into the very soul of those he encountered. He always wore a light pink scarf around his neck, even if it was in the summer.
