I'll be away from DA fer a bit, I'm doin' some secret trainin'. It only gives me time to post haikus...but...well in this sort of setting ye tend t' think 'em up naturally. Even me pirate accent be flowin' naturally. Th' smell o' th' sea really brings out somethin' different in ya.
Courage is being scared to death... and saddling up anyway. - Quote John Wayne
Well something about courage, (Everybody: ) Nobody is fearless, people will always have fear, but some have enough courage to face their fears.
My worst fear is most likely my fear of heights (don't judge me xD) But yet I still once walked on a thin rope a few meters above the ground (somewhere between 10 and 15 meters if I'm not mistaken). I was scared as hell, trembling with fear but I did it anyways.
And the question of the day is: Do you guys have any thing that really terrifies you?
In allergrößter Hochachtung vor diesem großartigen Werk, das ein ganzes Genre begründet hat ... aber nichtsdesto trotz einige kleinere Logiklücken aufweist.
P.S.: Ich weiß, dass ich nicht der Einzige - und schon gar nicht der Erste - bin, der auf diese doch geringfügig unspektakulärere Möglichkeit gekommen ist, wie man den "Ring, sie zu knechten, sie alle zu finden, ins Dunkel zu treiben und ewig zu binden“ auch hätte loswerden können. Aber zumindest ist es das erste Gedicht zu diesem Thema...
Okay, this isn't the piece I am working on - instead, this is what I scribbled down as a first attempt at a free verse poem. I still included rhyming, yet this piece isn't structured which is something I have never done before. I had attempted this to be a more 'fantasy piece', with castles and kingdoms and the character as a princess, but, oh well! ♥
This piece is about a young girl who is forced away from home, yet dreams of it dearly, and she begins losing herself.
The inspiration here is quite simple actually. FTL: Faster Than Light. A fantastic little game that, while seemingly simplistic, pulls you in so far.
The premise is simple: You are a starship carrying vital information that will save the Federation. You are being chased by the Rebels who are destroying the peaceful government. What makes the game so moving is a combination of music and short little textboxes that pop up during certain actions. It is such a simple setup but the simplicity is what makes it so moving! I fully love this little game and play for hours. I heavily recommend it.
TANGENT. Anyways. I thought, why not right a simple little story that reflects the basic ideas of a little game that brings me so much joy? Hence, "Alone" happened.
Goodness, the description is always such a mess!
To be hones though, I hated doing this. I love flowing sentences and ideas and thoughts into one chaotic meld of a thousand words. Of course, it is a pain to read sometimes and worse to edit but limiting my word count and having to fit it is hard!
I hope you liked the story. It is quite a bit shorter than my others so perhaps it may be a little easier on the eyes. Any comments or critiques are welcome!
