Garethil felt his skin crawl as the hippogryph passed into the Ghostlands. Not only was it far too close to Silvermoon City for comfort, but the land was dead, tormented, and it tore at his druid soul to see the land so ravaged by disease and decay. He had seen the beautiful Eversong Woods further north, making the Ghostlands all the more grisly a contrast in knowing what it should have been. He shuddered again and fixed his golden eyes instead on the troll city they were rapidly approaching.
Zul'Aman was once the power seat of the Amani empire, threatening both the high elves in Quel'thalas and the humans in Lordaeron with extinction until the two races joined forces and all but destroyed the troll nation. Zul'Aman was now all that remained of the once vast empire, and the trolls guarded their home with a ferocity that was terrifying, striking out at any outsider with a vengeance.
Despite this, Garethil and others of the Purpose

The mafia of the literary underworld.
They saunter into stanzas,
Under their trench coats
Or in violin cases.
They can make you talk,
"With just a few well-placed speech marks,"
Leave you shouting! Where you should have whispered!
And pulp your bold statements into quavering questions?
They can, pepper, your, phrases with, commas,
Or bring your piece to a dead.
They'll trap you (between brackets)
As you - dash - to the exit.
Then: punch a blunted colon
Into the gut of your text
Force-feed you a poisonous semicolon,
Then hack/slash your work to shreds.

Never leave survivors.
Readers discover the victims
In the back alleys of the library,
In a tommy-gun ellipsis...

Ballad of the Grey FoxAs we were out patrollingBallad of the Grey Fox4 years ago in Songs & Lyrics More Like This
One evening in the spring
Both Guards and horses patrolling well
Made the streets and houses ring
But to our great misfortune
No thief there could be found
Our guardsmen cursed and patrolled, but, still
No thief roamed over the streets
And up spoke our master captain
The master of the guard
"If only the Grey Fox come by
We'd get such a raise"
And up there sprung like lighting
A thief from out of his hole
His cowl was the color of a strom-full sky
And his eyes like frozen lakes
And they chased him over the Arena
And they chased him over the Temple
And they chased him down to the Waterfront
But never would he yield
And he jumped in a puff of smoke
And he appeared on the other-side
And he laughed so loud
The whole town shook
And he turned to the guardsmen
And he cried
"Guard on, my fearless Guardsmen
I sure will steal again
For you should never be on rest
When things are missing all around
And when you're lazy at work
Gold will disappear
And you can be sure that

A sound awoke Zelda from her sleep several hours later. Someone was opening the door. A tall blond woman walked in carrying a duffel bag in one hand and a suede leather jacket draped over one shoulder. She wore blue shorts and a matching sleeveless top.
"Oh, I didn't think anyone else was going to be here," said Zelda sitting up in bed rubbing her eyes.
"I'll go sleep in my ship if it's a problem," the woman replied.
"Oh no, it's no problem. I just thought ." the woman walked into the room ignoring her.
"Umm... You are Samus, are you not?"
"That's right," Samus said flatly, walking over to the bed on the other side of the room opposite Zelda's. She dropped her bag and jacket on the floor next to the bed.
"Pleased to meet you, my name is Zelda. I'm fairly new here and... I..." Samus, still ignoring her, marched off to the bathroom. Zelda thought that something obviously must be bothering her, though she didn't seem angry. It was... something else. Zelda could hear the shower runnin

I write my words in pen
- in pretty colors to illuminate my emotions.
with hope that they won't disappear.
- like wisps of smoke blow away by a simple wind.
I spend my life with consciousness
- never to stop thinking.
in constant, cold retreat.
- hiding my thoughts in this thinned book.
So much time spent 'elsewhere'
-I just found the book again today.
hardly any time spent 'here'
-I had to smile at the memories written within.
Without these little footholds
-It's good to remember
I would only have defeat.
-to appreciate what I still have
InuYasha's Daughter- Chapter 9Kaede softly pulled back the hanging door, looking out aimlessly to the falling snow swaying in the calm winds to the floor of the forest. A gentle winter breeze blew past her, stinging her face with it's frozen whisper. She gradually placed it back as normal, and glared over to Yukio and Shippou sitting in silence while peering into the blurred fire. She had watched discreetly as Shippou's eyelids began to fall, with slumber taking him into it's embrace.InuYasha's Daughter- Chapter 910 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
She brought her knees to her chest and hugged them for comfort other than warmth. She could feel a faint melody humming in her mind that she couldn't seem to rid herself of. It was so simple and beautiful it calmed her very soul. She was beginning to become frustrated when she couldn't remember where it was from, but the song soothed her so much, it really didn't matter. As if someone had stabbed her with a knife when she wasn't looking, she remembered her mother used to sing it to her as a child. She lowered her head and stared at th

you were so tiny, skin like starlight
against my worn and tired hands.
In the years and the hate,
I could not always keep you
close. I gave my life
to piercing the darkness
and you, cupped in these hands,
you gave me light. You forged
my knees straight and standing
when I wanted them to buckle. This world
I have tried to build
is suddenly empty -
these cracked fingers, once etching
the course of the river of history,
no longer hold water.

but why bother when there are swirls and whorls and starbursts to distract me?
I cannot think a full sentence
because my pool of words is always bubbling over.
I cannot think in words
when ideas are so much prettier.
I cannot think in folders and categories
when each individual something is so strikingly different from every other one.
I cannot think around corners
because I cannot see the walls, I walk right through them.
I cannot think only light thoughts
because there's a short in the lightswitch.
I cannot think outside the box
because I cannot find the box.
And that suits me just fine.

You're scared, I see.
Why, I ask, can't you just leave me be?
Freightened and hunted, we run.
Shot at by many a' gun.
Let's try this excersice.
Let's see what you see through my eyes.
Do you see it?
The reason for our nightly cries.
The pain of our losses...
The sting of our goodbyes?
The end of our existence is near.
You don't understand, so you choose to fear.
Now, tell me how it feels, my dear,
To lose the ones you hold so dear.
When you look at us through your eyes,
It's terrible that you don't even realize
The pain you've caused or
The severity of how we've been wronged.
It's such an abomination!
It's no wonder we fear your nation!
Humanity is not at all humane
When you satisify your needs through others' pain.
All your fears you make us symbolize
Until we're everything you despise.
Tell me now, without your lies.
Can you see what we see
Through our eyes?
InuYasha's Daughter-Chapter 11The soft humming of the upbeat song she had created herself flowed on the wind as her steps echoed through the crisp night air. With every light-hearted step she took, it seemed to have a sharp twist that seemed almost rhythmic with her created song. Her fiery, pin-straight hair seemed to sway as she continued forth through the field of long blades of grass. Her sword knocked against her side as a cool wind blew by. She stopped in her tracks as she noticed the dog demon standing a couple of feet away from her. She cocked a brow as she looked him over suspiciously.InuYasha's Daughter-Chapter 1110 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

A few more words were said by Truth to the counsel, and every last word was in his own tongue. Anna watched patiently and swayed to the strange music that rumbled from Truth's throat. She was nearly asleep standing when Truth's singsong voice changed back and dismissed the counsel in Elite. Her toes were hurting and she had long ago gone back to resting on her heals. Anna could hear voices behind her as the guards stepped up to surround her, Tokuamalee, and the now newly pronounced fleet commander. Unlike yesterday people were filtering out at their leisure and none of the guards was forcing them from their seats. Anna kept her eyes focused on the bottom part of Truth's floating chair.
"Dervish?" Truth said drifting over to the three standing on the small platform. "Your flagship and fleet await. You are going to be given relatively small assignments till you are comfortable with controlling the fleet. Are you sure you want to take this assignment, as it seems

just a ringing in your ear
no more than annoying
a voice that seems unclear
you roll it off your shoulder
and try to clear your mind
when your friends ask you what's wrong, you say
"it's nothing, nevermind"
but still the feeling grows
getting louder bit by bit
and try as hard as you might
you can't get rid of it
you shake your head from side to side
to try and clear your mind
when friends ask you what's wrong, you say
"it's nothing, nevermind"
but then it starts to move
a sinking feeling in your gut
then your grades are dropping
you're falling in a rut
you're starting to get nervous
because you can't clear your mind
to friends that ask what's wrong, you say
"it's nothing, nevermind"
soon you're quite sure
you're going insane
your skin starts to freeze
there's a burning in your brain
and you realize it's pointless
you can't clear your mind
to your friends you still persist

They had been traveling for about a month or so, now, and still had no idea of where to find the group searching for Naraku. They did, however, have a slight idea in which direction Naraku was. So they had continued on, pressing in his direction in hope that they would come across InuYasha, Kagome, or any of the others in the group on the quest.
As they walked through a forest which was bare without it's leaves, Yukio had insisted on getting on Kaede's last nerve. He had continuously poked her, until she finally blew up on him. Yumi lowered her shoulders, as all grew quiet again. Only the crushing from underneath their steps which crunched away the twigs and light snow powdered on top.

InuYasha's Daughter-Chapter 12Yukio knelt beside the running water, peering down to his reflection. Sunlight beat down on his head, heating his shaggy black strands that rested upon his head. His muscular sand coloured body was bathed in afternoon light as well as he crouched down before the water. He gently reached forward and dipped his long index talon in the liquid and felt the coolness travel up his finger. Inhaling deeply, he continued glaring down to his reflection, pondering deeply. Suddenly, he was pushed into the water by two pairs of hands forced roughly against his back near where his wings sprouted from. His entire body thrust into the water and his whole body was gobbled up by the cool temperatures of the water. He forced his way up half out of the water so that only his chest up was visible and threw back his drenched locks of hair in an unamused manner. There stood the two culprits: Yumi and Kaede, practically gagging on their thunderous laughs.InuYasha's Daughter-Chapter 1210 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Time went by as the day set in the horizon. Rose wished she could have watched the sunset but the words Bill had told her kept ringing in her ears. She kept him in her mind, wondering how he was. If he was punished, was he alright? Did he get so hurt he could barely move?
Rose started to wander the Captain's room, observing all she could. Maybe there was something somewhere that could give her a better view on Davy. There were a number of chests, some looking so old that if she had touched them, they would crumble. Another thing that caught her eye was a globe on the far side of the room, near the door. It had barnacles growing over it and the colors were so faded the land on it didn't look distinguishable from anything.
As night started to set in, she felt a familiar sway in the ship. A storm was approaching quickly and it reminded her of the night some days ago that her ship was taken. That night was horrible, not so much just for the storm,

InuYasha's Daughter- Chapter 7Kaede leaned gently on the wooden beam keeping up the drawn out roof and gazed out without focus at the scenery blown with some fog. She cast her gaze upwards to the tops of the farther trees and watched as the pouring rain continued to descend from the petals of leaves and onto the ground. Her thoughts entangled with one another, she hadn't noticed Shippou calling her from her right. The thunderous sounds of the collapsing droplets also deafened her hearing to his repetitive hollers, until finally, he decided to tap her lightly on the shoulder. Or at least, that's what he should have done besides what he actually did do... shake her forcefully. After his constant juddering halted, she couldn't resist smacking him across the head and narrowing her eyes down at him.InuYasha's Daughter- Chapter 710 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

The overcast night made for a hard sea to navigate upon, it was harsh and cold. A hurricane had been there not two hours before the Flying Dutchman resurfaced to the wind and vicious rain that seemed to cut at your skin as it fell. As the sails were tossed and beaten by the hands of the wind, Davy Jones emerged from his Captain's quarters to start the orders for all to hear. It was only because the Captain felt that a shipwreck was not far off that he even considered coming to the top of the sea during such a storm; it was the only reason he liked storms.

Blood, Rosalyn knew, was never a good sign. The warm metallic smell of it filled her nose as she looked over her hands. Bruised and beaten, they had burns and cuts that were now new. The rope she had held was red as well, tied off tight just as she had been trying to do. Never in her life had she worked this hard and never had her hands taken such a beating. It was torture just to work for her keep each day.
And even so, as she climbed below deck, she knew it was worth it. She felt more alive than ever before in her young life. It was as if her life's purpose was now clear to her and she would do anything to keep it that way.
Finding an empty bucket, she carried it loosely in her damaged hands back to the deck. The crew around her were less cruel as the days went by, letting her walk among them and work side by side without much confrontation. Bill was always a pleasure, always asking her to do things, never a order.
