The Reason For My Fear
IÕve never been one to fear the darkness, nor the things it conceals.
I have never feared the blackness of ragged chasms: great mouths consuming all,
Nor the icy cold darkness of a killerÕs eye, or the endless yawning of a sharkÕs jaws
YetÉ yet there is somethingÉ something about this house, this place, which makes me pauseÉ.
I know not why, nor whence this fear has come; it was Ônere her before, this much I know!
Yet consuming is it, though I myself, self-proclaimedly fearless,
Do tremble when I am here.
And something, I feel, someone, revels in this fear.
Perhaps it is those who l

It was a ghost. Something that had once been alive and was now dead. Or someone. It was hard to tell when this particular specter was somewhat like a floating tadpole. Only, its round 'head' was about the size of a football with a single large mouth. Or was that mouth an eye? Probably neither, since it was glowing and orange. Neither eyes nor mouths were supposed to be orange, right?
Gar observed in silence a bit longer, but a ghost was no threat to him. The servant knew this for a fact. His Master had killed plenty of folks (being a vampire did require large quantities of blood after all) and a few had left behind

Nostrils flaring, Gar allowed himself a huge sigh as he wrestled with his map, thumbs leaving small holes in the paper. Really, if not for his tongue, the flimsy scrap would've been shredded into bits long ago. But as he held the item firmly against the rough pine bark of an old tree, Gar could not help but despair. He was completely lost.
The first part of his journey had been easy. This map was quite clear and full of nice, clear landmarks. Rivers to follow, small and easily flown-through forests, a few smelly bogs. But now, so close to his goal, the paper guide was failing him.

I groaned as I read through page after page in my science textbook. If I had started studying earlier, I would've been done by now. Of course, one had to add in procrastination and distractions as factors as well. Occasionally, I'd write a few notes in my worn notebook, but otherwise I sat in complete silence, reading. Work in relation to circular motion as opposed to horizontal motion tends to- I bolted straight up when my cell phone suddenly went off, the thou

A history that saved lives and healed those who would never know
Her fear and anger showing in the way she walked and talked.
Her claws always ready to defend herself, never having someone to love
no one that seemed to care about her pain or her dreams of being free.
She was realized to a cage in a place that didn't seem to care,
they fed her and left her be, person after person passing her by
Their thoughts, "An anti social cat, what would anyone want with her."
A single person seeing her and seeing the hurt and fear in her eyes,
taking her home to try and heal those painful scars,

I raised my head up to look around the area closest to us. I could not see anything, but wreckage. The sun was beginning to set as well. I let out a sigh of sadness and sorrow for the girl, "We must continue tomorrow for now we must set up camp, get some rest." The little girl looked like she was about to burst into tears, "I promise as soon as it's safe we'll find your mom." I looked down at the girl hopping to cheer her up, so I gave her a big warm smile.

Nirn knows only Stasis and Change (Good and Evil are just concepts made by mortals in an attempt to understand the reason of the Stasis and the transition through Change), the two forces, a dual aspect of the Divinity, found in TES.
Magicka is Entropy, a measure of the "disorder" in Creation. By Magnus, the Mathematician, who knows the Alphabet of the When and Where, Nirn, an Entity-Realm not yet known, Became. With the Earth Bones, the Laws of Nirn (Lex Naturalis) were established. Through Magicka, the Change could become Stasis and the Stasis could become Change.
Magicka is the manipulation of the Divinity - the Spark of the Creation.

Praised be Magnus, the One, the Architect, the Sun of Nirn, the Gate between Creation and Aetherius.
Magicka flows through Magnus, who is Its Creator and Master. In Nirn, the coexistence of Change and Stasis produces the perfect foundation to Magicka and Time.
With Time we obtain Change, and with Magicka, we can See Change and Change the Nothing. The Creation from Nothing, and from Nothing, the Change.
From the Heart of Change, deep in the Void, the Nothing becomes Something, and then, Time begins. But Time does not Read the Stasis, but is used to See the Change, and with Change, comes Nirn.
