Ever since you moved into The Castle Was Never Was, you made it damn clear that no one(or no nobody) was to disturb you before eleven A.M. unless they have a death wish or a perfectly prepared cup of coffee.

An Interview with Lady VashjSunedran, top journalist of the Kalimdor Times, had been trying for years to get an interview with Queen Azshara. It had all been to no avail. It seemed that the Daughter of a Thousand Moons thought talking to journalists was beneath her. The offer of an interview with Lady Vashj, one of the queen's chief highborne ladies-in-waiting and close confident was definitely the next best thing.An Interview with Lady Vashj3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The night elves worshiped and adored their queen. To them she was the very model of perfection, beautiful, wise and benevolent. Sunedran had seen Azshara from a distance and could only admire her magnificence. A major part of him wanted to be carried away by the tide of adoration, yet somehow it didn't quite ring true. The common view of Azshara as the perfect queen simply did not sit with his journalistic instinct. Deep down, he knew that if you dug hard enough, you could always find a scandal. Perhaps Vashj could help him to find the real Azshara.
For the interview, Sunedran wore a plain dark blue ro

One of my arrows missed.
I knew this day was coming. I am not as young as I once was, and the last few years especially have worn me down. My right shoulder is a chronic source of pain, even when it is not in use. It was only a matter of time before my aim started to suffer. But it has long decades since I missed a stationary target. I did not realize how badly it would shake my confidence.
What good is an archer whose aim is less than true?
I have honed this skill my entire life, and protected my people with it for nearly two centuries now. The Sin'dorei need every bow left to us to hold off those who would destroy us without a thought. Even now, almost half of our last city still lies in ruins.
But, if I lose my aim, I will be worse than useless. I will be a liability.
I have never forgotten how I felt when I was a child. Before the Farstriders, before arrows that never missed. I remember how it felt then, to be without talent, or a way

He stopped behind me as I was doing my nightly ritual of target practice at the training field in Silvermoon. I could feel his presence before he even spoke. He has a magnetism that I can sense deep within me, just by being near him. I am not entirely sure what to make of that. Thorian was sitting silently next to me, his tail twitching back and forth.
Jhur walked up beside him and scratched Thorian's ear as he spoke. "You're training without armor . are you just bored or trying to work something out of your thoughts?"
I turned, feeling the smile on my face materialize at the sound of his voice. "Oh, a bit of both, perhaps. I am glad to see you. How are you feeling?"
He returned my smile, shrugging. "I'm fine. Why wouldn't I be?"
My eyes lowered unbidden to his neck. "Well, that, for one. And I have not seen you for a while. I have been a little worried about you."

The forsaken groaned trailing behind the ashen tinted orc and his towering felgaurd demon, as they crest over the small hillside by Darrowmere Lake. Not too many people would willingly travel with a warlock; the taboo that followed them was well warranted. Mostly if that orc was a Dragonmaw orc; Lim didn't know the specifics but the other orc's made it sound like a big deal. However, Grimblood seemed like a good enough fellow. At least he didn't complain about Lim's stench. Though, that might be due to the fact it was hard to smell over the brimstone sent his demon let off.
Grimblood sighed and shook his head. It wasn't that he didn't share his friend's sentiment on the matter; he just didn't see the point in complaining about it.

Pink.Aellynne had spent the afternoon packing for the trip. Her wardrobe was incredibly miniscule for a Sin'dorei. And of the clothes she owned, the ones she actually wore were even fewer in number. Much of the simple wooden armoire in her room in the barracks was taken up by clothes that were gifts from her sister, that she could never imagine herself wearing in public. One dress in particular was so revealing, just looking at herself in the mirror trying it on had made her blush.

She sat at her writing desk, her quill poised absently over blank parchment. Ferelden's new queen had thought it would be an easy tale to write. Scholars and historians had of late been clamoring at chance to draft the account, inundating the palace with requests for the details of the journey of Ferelden's heroes through their battle against the Blight. One by one she had reviewed and dismissed the requests, finally choosing to put the adventures to ink personally. It seemed only fitting after all.
Yet sitting here, intentionally pulling to mind stories so dear and yet still so raw to her brilliant green eyes filled and she blinked quickly before the tears could escape and ruin the parchment beneath her fingers.

Her mother looked up from her plate, knife and fork in hand. She sighed giving a little smile. "Alright little minx, you can go." Tharisa chuckled lightly.
Yousha's eyes lit up with delight, she jumped down from her chair, wiping the remainder milk from her top lip with her arm. She scampered out the front door of their little cottage, shutting the door loudly, before running down the path and cutting through the forest.

"This is where I wake up usually," he muttered to himself under his breath. "Or where everyone points and laughs because I have no clothes on."

"For you? Not at all." She set aside the mundane task of honing her daggers and rose from her seat beside the fire. "What's on your mind?"
"Here, look at this," as though time were of the essence, Alistair's hand thrust out before him. Clutched gently within the metal grip was a single rose; its ruby petals open in glorious bloom. "Do you know what this is?" He asked. Valeria had the feeling this was a set up for a joke; his flurried movements and rushed words hinting that she had to respond for the game to continue.
"A rather odd choice of weaponry for you, don't you think?" She struck first, unwilling to lose this battle of wits without putting up at least a weak struggle. Alistair smiled at her jest.

He could not help what he had become and it could have been worse. She listened to him describe the vile concoction patiently and then asked him to show her the magnificent dagger that had bedazzled her thoughts since she had first noticed it weeks ago. After first spying the enchanted weapon, she had counted out the coins in her purse once and then again, making certain there would be enough to buy the dagger and still leave money for purchasing armor or weapons for the others. To compensate the cost she had been venturing into the deep roads for plundered goods before at last selling her spare daggers and an expensive ruby pendant she had not donned since receiving her Warden's Oath.

A Warrior's Balance 1They had met here as determined in the letter. A rather formal way to decide a meeting, but Jaina had been very specific that the usual place in Durotar would not be right for what would be discussed tonight. It had to be on neutral ground and concealed under cover of darkness as well as disguised. Jaina shifted uncharacteristically nervously on the chair she sat on in the corner of the little dive in Ratchet, bright blue eyes shifting occasionally towards the door. Her usual purple cloak had been abandoned tonight in favor of one in jet black with an ordinary silver clasp. A few stray locks of golden hair stuck out under the cloak, but she was paying no attention to that. The redness around her blue eyes and the wetness of her pretty face showed she'd been crying even in the dim light of the seedy little tavern. Of course, a seedy little tavern in Ratchet was probably the only place a pretty girl could cry and nobody would give her a second look, thus making it perfect.A Warrior's Balance 15 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

molting downy feathers
in a hermetic esophagus—

pooled with words
She is choked by halos,
and expecting expansions
spanning clouds and Niles

and no tsunami felt,
will rid the torture justified
in each holy touch upon
soiled cheeks: wet Liar’s runoff.
It falls so easily down her throat,

and she almost warns them
to stay away: She is filth.
but they lovingly caress
and they carefully sink
their glittering pearls into her

How to Know if You're TransI see these questions sometimes, about "how can you be sure you're trans?" I see the sentiment often in articles that claim to "question" transsexuality, from well-meaning but pain-in-the-ass bystanders, and so on. A lot of it gives me a migraine the size of a T-Rex behind my right eye, so I thought I might help clear up some of the confusion.How to Know if You're Trans4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
There is only one way to "know" you're trans. And that's because you feel you are. Does this answer seem vague to you? It should, because it is. As much as others would like to tell you otherwise, there is no "test" for being trans. There is no criteria that if you check enough boxes, congratulations, you're transgendered. I ID very strongly as trans, but I fail nearly every single criteria required for Aetna's insurance coverage of trans care. In Aetna's eyes, I'm not a "true transsexual,"

Link examined the room from the place he stood, and stared quizzically around. As far as he could see, this room held nothing of interest. The door across the room, however, was sealed shut as well, so there must have been something in this room.
The first thing to do, the elf decided, was to inspect the little that was here. Which happened to be, a spindly old tree, that appeared to have died ages ago, and a few rocks scattered helter-skelter.
Link cautiously approached the tree, which seemed to be reaching out with long skeletal hands. He ran a palm down the bark, circled it countless times, and even climbed its branches once. He checked the roots, and the patches of grass around it.

Marth understood that that may have been the only way to get out a soul, but why kill him that way? Why not stab him? Dark Link did have a sword after all. It was all too confusing.
