of my dreams,
you come to me
and are not seen.
You wake beside me,
but are not there,
the face and smile
on a wall so bare.
I wish to hold you
and never let go,
for you are mine forever,
I hope this time to keep it so.
I wait to sleep,
but die to dream,
so soon youll return
and come to me.
You will hold me close,
and keep me still,
so tomorrow morning
I am still there.
In your arms
forever to be,
is for now a dream,
but tomorrow a reality.

Rin raced down the slope of Frost Peak as quickly as she dared. She remembered her last encounter with the creatures of this mountain and kept her senses at their highest edge. As the forest got closer and closer Rin felt the pain in her heard get worse. Despite what Teryn had said to her, Rin couldnt get the image of Drayla shriveled and dead out of her head. I cant be too late, I just cant, she said to herself as the slope began to level out and the snow turned to bare stone and then the soft dirt of the forest floor.
Retracing her steps from her last time in the forest, Rin quickly found herself at the flowers where she had run from the flying monster. This time, being a full-sized Naga Rin simply flicked it away when it flew at her. She would have smiled but all her thoughts were about Draytha. Reaching down, Rin grasped the vial of anti-toxin at her side. It would be enough, it had to. Draytha was the one who had help

Some of you are probably scratching your head and yelling "DUH. Giant naga!". That is only partially correct. It's important to get this point out of the way first as it's the platform for a lot of the other points to be made. Simply put, Malika is a giant naga, but she is not a naturally occurring Felaryan Naga. Her root species is Xenonian, an ancient race of benevolent and peaceful giants that resemble el

Rin woke up early, a dream fading from her mind as her eyes slowly opened. Stretching her arms and tail, she rose to a sitting position, looking out at the entrance to her cave. Light was just starting to trickle in from the top of the mountain. Yawning wide, Rin brushed a hand through her hair, working the knots out as she moved to the entrance to her cave. A few people were already up and working in the fields. They waved to Rin as they caught sight of her and she returned the gesture.
As she slowly started her morning walk a patrol from the base came up to her. "Good morning," she greeted them with a smile.
"Good morning Cadet Rin" the sergeant replied. "We've been instructed to bring you to the base for a routine medical examination all cadets undergo."
"All right let's go," Rin said as she fell in behind the soldiers. "I wasn't told there would be any tests yesterday."
"Things were a bit busy; I guess the paperwork got backed up," the sergeant told Rin

Rin eagerly crammed another fruit into her mouth, juice dripping down her by now multi-colored chin. For the past several weeks she’d been eating practically nonstop as her growth cycle kicked into full gear. She was almost as tall as Terra now, and her hair had grown down to her tail.
“Good morning Rin,” Terra called as she came into the main chamber with an armful of fruit. “Still hungry?” She asked with a smile. “I think I’m getting more muscle on my arms from gathering all this food every day.”
“Sorry I’m so much work,” Rin apologized through a mouthful of berries the size of a human head. “My hunger has been letting up the last few days.”
“Hey, it’s ok. I’ve enjoyed taking care of you. You’re like a little sister to me,” Terra smiled brightly. “Pretty soon you’ll be ready for your first hunt.”

But I'll still go on missing you,
and the kindness you bestow.
Don't think that I've stopped loving you;
I am certain that you know.
Each minute I'm away from you
only makes my feelings grow.
It is said that love is strengthened
when you're lost and far from home.
Don't forget how much I love you,
don't forget you're not alone.
It is said that love is patient,
and that love is also kind.
I am always right here waiting;
you are always on my mind.
If love is the truest wisdom;
I'm the wisest of the wise.
I find my peace and solitude
in the beauty of your eyes.
A true love is always honest;
you've not told me any lies.
How could you say you're not perfect
when you haven't a disguise?
Ideal love is never wanting;
quite the opposite indeed..
So I don't find it surprising
that I want the one I need.
If true love goes on forever;
then we'll have plenty of time.
May our love be never-ceasing,
may I be forever thine.

Rin’s face scrunched up in concentration. “Well…Both I guess. I’m a Naga, and we have an instinct to hunt live prey whenever we can, but the food in this place is just so different. The flavors and the textures aren’t like anything I’ve tasted before.”

Deep in the forest of Felarya, Shelda launched an icicle at the onrushing Kensha beast, impaling one of its legs. The jackal headed beast howled in pain, but its five other legs combined to launch it into the air, crashing into Shelda and knocking the Naga to the ground. Its claws tore into her skin and blood trickled to the ground. The ice Naga had been going out for her morning hunt when the beast had jumped her. If her Naga senses hadn’t warned her, she would have lost her head to the beast’s first strike. As it was, the beast had drawn first and had not faltered in its attack.
Kensha beasts were the dominant predators in a nearby area of the forest. They were quite large, the one attacking Shelda would have come up to her midsection had she been standing. Each of it

In the Desserts with Icing shop, there were many little coffee shop fairies, though they are small, they would spend their days making delicious desserts and pastries and also sweet, warm or cool beverages to go along with them. A beverage, dear reader, is a big, fancy word for a drink.

Can my heart break

The one man I thought I could trust,
the one man I thought I could love,
is just like the others.
Just as capable of letting my frail heart
slip from his hand and shatter.
The only one
that I though was close to me
couldn't be farther apart.
All you needed was a gentle push
and you let my feelings fall to the dirt.
If this is love then let me die now.
I can't stand how I can be blinded
by something as trivial as a man.
Fate is cruel,
I knew that from the start.
As did I know that life was unfair.
love was supposed to be pure
I guess all that I have lived for is false
and just a simple fairytale.
Why can't I cry?
Is this a normal symptom of heartbreak?
My heart has already been broken
but I thought I was safe
from loving someone
with a stoic face
and a bad impression,
but I guess love is like air,
no matter how hard
you try you can't keep it away.

CARVING SKULLS & STUFF (11-FEB-08)
This is intended as a continuing project. I'll be adding to it, and editing it for greater clarity, in response to your comments and questions. So if something is left out, or not clear, please let me know. Eventually, this may turn into a proper tutorial, but I'm starting out small, so that people who are asking questions don't have to wait until that possibly distant time. And so people can tell me what they actually need to know.
Goggles -- I don't carve unless I'm wearing some sort of eye protection, usually magnifying goggles (because I'm getting old and can't focus up close anymore), but sometimes non-magnifying ones. Chunks of stuff can fly about, and you don't want them in your eyes.
Respirator or dust mask -- Dust is not good for your lungs, and power carving can produce lots of dust. The dust of bone, antler, and shell is very bad; it can _permanently_ clog parts of your lungs. Many stone and
