The Demon and the Sorcerer Ch. 7
A storm was coming.
From where he stood on the eastern border of the Kurosaki territory- a jagged cliff overlooking the ocean- Lord Haruki could both see and sense the signs of the coming tempest. The wind, already heavy with promised rain, blew in strong gusts around the demon's ears and wings. Overhead, the gathering clouds were thick and dark, slowly erasing every star in the sky. Glancing down, Haruki could see waves smashing against the sides of the cliff. Anyone unlucky enough to be caught in the currents could expect to be lifted up in a foamy embrace before being dashed against the massive rocks and sinking into an eternal watery sleep.
"And so it must be," the great bat demon muttered.
Raising his head, Haruki sighed and glanced over his shoulder.
"You can stop concealing yourself."
"Believe me, I never bothered." Ladahlord stepped out of the thick shadows behind Haruki into a patch of remaining moonlight. The sorcerer carefully approached the old bat demon, noting that Haruki

"Can you hear them?"
"Barely. We will no doubt begin the attack soon. Father is just waiting on Shinobu's report."
"Shinobu?"
"Our most trusted scout. Shinobu will let us know the invading horde's exact position. They won't be able to sense our presence thanks to the barrier we've erected around the field, but we want to be ready at a moment's notice."
Ladahlord nodded, peering at the western horizon. Though dawn was just breaking, the sky ahead was still dark, peppered with the odd star. The sorcerer stood with Tomoko at the edge of a large field at the edge of the western boarder of the Kurosakis' land. Behind them stood a full third of the bat demons. Across from Tomoko and Ladahlord, at the other edge of the field, Takashi led another third of the Kurosakis. Overlooking the field, at the top of a large plateau, Lord Haruki waited with the remainder of the bat demons.
Ladahlord could feel the bat demons' powerful magic surrounding the area; the force of the barrier was like a thick

"By the way, I can't help, but admire the barrier you're erected around your home. That takes quite a bit of magical skill. You should be proud."
Hiroshi chuckled at Ladahlord's words."Pride is one thing we Kuroskais do not lack."
"I noticed." Ladahlord cast a glance at Shigure's ramrod back. The one-eyed demon snorted, snapping his wings in a huff.
"And I noticed you are quite calm, sorcerer. Considering you wish to speak with Lord Haruki, I question your mentality."
"You wouldn't be the first to do that. But I came here to warn him- and all of you- of an impending attack. If nothing else, Tomoko will vouch for me."
"Lord Tomoko will vouch for just about anyone," Shigure muttered.
"Hardly a bad thing when one has an open mind and an honest heart," Ladahlord replied.
"There." Hiroshi cut off any further argument. "Welcome to our manor."
"Aahh." Ladahlord allowed himself a moment to admire the Kurosaki home. The path he and his demon escorts stood on led straight to a polished wo

"Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home," Ladahlord hummed to himself as he worked. True he was rarely at home, but home was always there when he needed it. And now, hard at work on his potion, Ladahlord was more than happy to be in his underground cavern residence.
In the largest of the caverns, which Ladahlord had chosen as his main workstation, the walls were lined with bottles, jars, and pouches of all shapes and sizes. The sorcerer cast an approving eye over his collected ingredients, tapping a finger against his lips in thought. With a snap of his fingers, a blue cloth bag jumped from a nearby ledge and landed neatly in the sorcerer's hand. Ladahlord turned back to the far wall of the cave where an entire length of rock had been carved into one long bench. There, the sorcerer could mix, boil, bubble, and brew to his heart's content.
Now, Ladahlord reached into the bag and drew out a clump of milkweed. Running his fingers though it, the sorcerer nodded.
"Ahh, fine stuff,

"So, you had to soak nightshade, lilac, and blackberries in water mixed with honey and then leave it under the noon sun until the mixture turned gold?"
"The potion worked perfectly."
"Perfectly how, may I ask? I presume it didn't give the poor child the stomach ache of a lifetime?"
"Certainly not! It gave her the ability to speak to dogs!"
"To dogs?" Tomoko asked with a laugh.
"Take it from me, Tomoko, this child will revolutionize the field of veterinary science!"
"Provided her parents don't think she's possessed!"
"Not this little one. She knows better. And she will be a friend to all canines, the most loyal of creatures. Except, perhaps, for bats," Ladahord added, tipping his friend a wink.
"And I thought the potion you told me about last month was your most creative work. What was in that one again? Bark from a willow tree and a strand of a horse's mane?"
"A strand from a wild horses's mane. Given willingly, I might add." Ladahlord chuckled. "I spent nearly an hour trying to

"Now, do you understand what you have to do, Saki?" Ladahlord asked, kneeling down. In front of him, the little girl nodded furiously, her thick black bangs dancing over her wide brown eyes.
"I understand, sir. I have to wait for the sun to go down, then face the rising moon and drink this potion."
"Well done. Do so and I promise you won't wake cold and hungry tomorrow."
The gaunt eight-year-old's face split into a wide smile. "Thank you! Thank you, sir!"
"Of course, little one. Good luck!" Ladahlord rose to his feet and snapped his fingers, vanishing in a cloud of mist. In truth, though, he only teleported himself behind a nearby tree. Peering around the thick trunk, Ladahlord watched the little girl dart into the run-down shack she called home. The sorcerer shook his head; living as an orphan on the outskirts of a little village was no life for a child. Why, it was a miracle she hadn't starved to death or been carried her off by someone with less than honorable intentions. Ah, well,

Ladahlord knelt and plunged the empty flask into the stream. Drawing it out, the sorcerer inserted a cork and shook the flask a few times. Perfect! Clear water from a Japanese stream was just what his next spell called for. Stowing the flask into one of his many pockets, Ladahlord gave the lapels of his red velvet jacket a tug and straightened his black silk top hat. He was about to leave when the bushes behind him rustled. Ladahlord paused, sighed, then turned to face the vibrating greenery.
"I know you're there," he called. "Go on, clear off, or I'll turn you into flowers for some doe-eyed maiden to come along and pluck!"
Hissing laughter came from the bushes. "Bold old sorcerer or foolish young sorcerer?" a raspy voice questioned.
"Young or old, I wasn't told," Ladahlord answered. And in truth, he had no idea of his exact age. His current appearance was a cross between a young man just beginning to get old and an old man with quite a few traces of youth. His physical traits, like hi

The Trial Epilogue
"Today's James's birthday," Rin noted softly. Ladahlord gestured toward his work station. The crystal ball floated off the table and drifted over to land in the sorcerer's lap.
"Would you like to see him, Rin?" he asked. Rin eyed the crystal, nodding her head once. Ladahlord placed his hands on the ball, muttered a brief spell and allowed Rin full view of the sphere.
As the two watched, the crystal shimmered and began to glow from within. A long wooden staircase, overlooked by an oval window and soft white curtains swam into view. The window peered out into a darkening sky, but the staircase was filled with the cozy light of a nearby lamp. Rin eyed the image intently and Ladahlord noted her claws rapidly tapping against the soft dirt.
Soon enough, two figures appeared on the stairway. Rin recognized both Ladybug and Grasshopper straight away. Both insects were carefully ascending the staircase at a slow pace and with good reason. The young half-demon's eyes softened as she noticed a fa

The sun was setting through a sky streaked with pink and orange. From the soft grass of a lush meadow, Ladahlord watched the crimson orb dipping into the sky before turning back to his work. Spread out on a makeshift table were a large crystal ball, a wooden bowl a set of scales, a mortar and pedestal and a varied collection of herbs. Casting a practiced eye over the materials, the sorcerer selected a small bunch of purple berries. Squeezing them over the bowl, they produced a thick blood-red juice.
"Perfect," he noted. Ladahlord chuckled as the familiar sounds of beating wings reached his ears. "This concoction will be a particularly potent one."
"That's good to know," Rin said, landing beside the sorcerer and folding her wings. "Hopefully, another child won't be miserable much longer."
"Well, that's what I'm here for," Ladahlord answered.
"Lucky for James you were," Rin said softly, sitting cross-legged next to her friend. Ladahlord cast an eye over the young half-demon.

Everything is Offensive!
(I may make this a video essay at some point).
So, it's been a rather crazy December so far. With that thar YouTube Rewind, Tumblr doing... stuff. And of course, Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer is offensive. Along with everything else nowadays. And let's just say that... there are a lot of topics that I want to cover. I'd say the world has gone crazy, but we've been here for some time.
So, recently, I believe it was the Huffington Post that said Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer (the Rankin-Bass film) was offensive because... Rudolph's disability only became acceptable when he provided a benefit. And also Veggietales is racist. This seemed to annoy people, and... I'm not entirely sure why. Like... this has been going on for a fucking decade at this point. People have been pointing out that everything is sexist, racist, ableist, homophobic, transphobic, and every other -ist you could imagine. I think that the top of ridiculousness for me is that "milk is racist" and "air conditio

As most of you know, I am a HUGE fan of Roald Dahl's stories. And last week, it was announced that Netflix will produce an animated series based off of his work!

To say I am excited is an understatement.

I am curious to see how this series will play out. So far, 16 of Dahl's stories have been announced to appear on the series. Sadly, my favorite Dahl tale- James and the Giant Peach -was not mentioned, but perhaps if the series does well, it will. On the plus side, we will see Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator in the series. I find this book even funnier now that I'm an adult so I'm all for it.

As to just what the series will be, I've read that it will be re-tellings of his tales for a new generation while still keeping the spirit of the books alive. Ideally, I'd LOVE to see the series go into what happens after the stories end. I want to see Charlie and Mr. Wonka make candy together, Matilda succeeding in school, the mouse-boy and his grandmother hunting witches and James living with his adoptive bug family. Most of all, I would adore seeing the characters interact and play off each other. But hey, I'm also beyond excited to see what other creative minds will do with the world and characters Dahl left us. There's no release date for the series yet, but what it does come to Netflix, you can bet I'll watch EVERY single episode!

Today was my and James's first-year anniversary. Hard to believe it's been a solid year since we got married, but there you have it! 

We decided to pend the weekend in Philadelphia and spent the day relaxing at the hotel (though we took a swim in the pool). We just got back from a candlelight dinner at City Tavern, a place that was established in 1773 and still serves colonial-themed food. A lovely, quiet day and a nice dinner with the man I love; what more do I need?

Well, time to begin year 2 of marriage! Can't wait to see what it holds!
A storm was coming.

From where he stood on the eastern border of the Kurosaki territory- a jagged cliff overlooking the ocean- Lord Haruki could both see and sense the signs of the coming tempest. The wind, already heavy with promised rain, blew in strong gusts around the demon's ears and wings. Overhead, the gathering clouds were thick and dark, slowly erasing every star in the sky. Glancing down, Haruki could see waves smashing against the sides of the cliff. Anyone unlucky enough to be caught in the currents could expect to be lifted up in a foamy embrace before being dashed against the massive rocks and sinking into an eternal watery sleep.

"And so it must be," the great bat demon muttered.

Raising his head, Haruki sighed and glanced over his shoulder.

"You can stop concealing yourself."

"Believe me, I never bothered." Ladahlord stepped out of the thick shadows behind Haruki into a patch of remaining moonlight. The sorcerer carefully approached the old bat demon, noting that Haruki's formerly imposing posture was gone. In its place was a sense of weariness and the great golden eyes were filled with resignation. Haruki eyed Ladahlord before turning away to look at the ocean.

"I know why you have come, Ladahlord. But this is what must be."

"With all due respect, my Lord, no, it does not. You still have a good number of years in you."

Haruki let out a bitter chuckle. "Oh, I know. I have quite a few years to grow older than I already am. Quite a few years to grow even weaker."

"Quite a few years to be blessed with grandchildren."

Haruki's great head swung around so that he fully met the sorcerer's penetrating gaze. "Are either of my sons expecting to have children at the moment?"

"No, but judging from the way Takashi was looking at Suzume at the victory feast, I would hazard a guess that it won't be too long before the inevitable happens."

"Indeed so." Haruki turned away again. "But I will not be here long enough to see my sons wed nor to see them welcome their own children into the world."

Ladahlord frowned. "Yes, you seem determined to die now and rob yourself of a joy plenty of people would kill to experience. Are you certain there wasn't a mule ancestor somewhere in your family tree?"

"Mind yourself, sorcerer. I am still more than capable of turning you into a pile of shredded flesh!"

"Ah?" Ladahlord held up his hands, allowing them to glow white with magic. "Come then, my Lord! En garde!"

Haruki bared his fangs at the sorcerer, but instead of a growl, a hissing laugh escaped from his mouth.

"Clever, Ladahlord. Very clever. But no, my mind is made up on the matter and goading me to fight will not sway me." Lord Haruki turned away from Ladahlord to stare at the gathering storm clouds, sinking into a sitting position.

With a sigh, Ladahlord dispelled the magic and moved closer to the demon lord.

"Come now, Lord Haruki. You were ever the fighter. Are you truly going to give up on life now?"

Haruki's ears twitched at the sorcerer's voice, but his eyes remained fixed on the dark horizon.

"Tell me, sorcerer, how old are you?"

"I cannot say, exactly. I have been roaming the world since there was a world to roam."

Haruki nodded. "I thought as much. I, however, was in my prime during Japan's Feudal era. Ahh, those were proud days for demons. We held sway over so much of the land and only a certain few could dare stand against us! Though, there were none who could even get close enough to even scratch me!

"But those times are over now, Ladahlord. Japan has opened its boarders and I have grown old." Haruki shook his head. "In those old days, Noburu would not have had a chance to wait for me to tire. I could have stood against twice his number, turned them all to dust and still have been fresh enough to rip that fool's heart from his chest. But I am not as young or as strong as I once was."

"Such is the natural order of the world, my Lord."

"Quite so. All living things have their time to die. And so my time has come."

"As I said-"

"I know what you said. But I cannot allow myself to just grow old and wither. My reputation has been built on a legacy of strength and power. True, I managed to defeat Noburu, but I needed help to do it."

"Somehow, I don't think my distracting Noburu is what people will remember. Ripping someone's heart out with your teeth? Now that tends to leave an impression."

"And so it shall. That is my intention, Ladahlord: to leave my sons a legacy of strength. If I were to die to die against another demon, my legacy would die with me and it would be my sons who would have to defend our home against any challengers. And believe me, sorcerer, there would be many demons who would love to prove themselves by challenging the Kurosaki name.

"But if I die now, fresh from a great victory and falling to an enemy no one can hope to defeat," Haruki nodded at the gathering storm, "there will be far fewer who would seek to cross the new Lord. That is my hope, Ladahlord. That, is what I wish to leave to my sons."

"A new leader does not inherit the old leader's accomplishments, Lord Haruki."

"Yes I know. I won't be able to stop other demons from challenging my sons. My hope is that fewer of them will do so. To die fighting a storm rather than another demon will remind my enemies that I died undefeated and that I allowed another to take my place." Haruki paused, then added,

"My death here and now is the only way I can ensure that my sons face the fewest challenges to our rule. I'm certain of it."

"This is truly the path you wish to take, Lord Haruki?"

"It is."

"Then take this."

Haruki's eyes widened as Ladahlord drew a gleaming glass bottle from one of his coat pockets. From within, the glow of the sun and the moon cast their radiance over the demon's claws as he took the bottle.

"A powerful potion," the demon noted. "And just what will it do?"

"I'm don't know," Ladahlord admitted. "But I do know that it was meant for you, Lord Haruki."

The great bat demon stared at the potion for a few moments. Then he uncorked the bottle and tipped the glowing mixture down his throat.

"It tastes... promising." A small smile stole across Haruki's face. "Thank you, Ladahlord."

"It was my honor, Lord Haruki."

Haruki raised his head as a fresh gust blew across his ears. "My sons will be here soon." He fixed the sorcerer with his golden stare. "If you so desire, you may watch and listen, as what I have to say to Takashi and Tomoko may concern you as well. But please keep yourself concealed for now. I... I would prefer-"

"You would prefer to keep this intimate between yourself and your children. My Lord, I would not dream of intruding. No, I will stay and watch from the shadows."

"Arigato."

"Tondemo arimasen, Lord Haruki. Farewell."

Ladahlord took shelter further back in the shadows, quickly shielding himself with a magical barrier. Haruki had turned away from the cliff, his gaze focused on the sky. Soon, the sound of beating wings filled the air, signalling the arrival of Haruki's sons. From within his barrier, Ladahlord watched the scene unfold.

Takashi and Tomoko landed before their father, their wings folding about their shoulders against the wind.

"My sons," Haruki greeted them, inclining his head.

"Father," Tomoko began softly. "Do you truly mean to fight the storm?"

"Yes, Tomoko, I do. My time has come."

"Father!" Takashi exclaimed. "Surely you do not mean that."

"I do indeed. My rule over the Southern Bat Demons has ended. And yours has begun, Takashi."

"My rule?" Takashi glanced over at his brother, who stood silently beside him. "But Father-"

"Yes, your rule, Takashi Kurosaki, and long may you reign. I have no doubt that you will lead our people well. And I hope you will do so with Lady Suzume at your side."

"I... Yes, Father."

"Good. Treasure your mate, my son, and any children you have." Haruki turned to his younger son.

"Ahh, Tomoko. If I believed for a moment you desired to rule alongside your brother, I would have named you a Lord as well. But I know that is not your heart's desire, is it, my son?"

"No, Father, it is not," Tomoko answered softly and from within his barrier, Ladahlord felt a surge of pride for his friend run through him.

"I didn't think so. As such, Tomoko, I give you my blessing to roam the world as you see fit."

Tomoko's eyes widened at his father's words. Haruki chuckled.

"I am not blind, Tomoko. You wish to see what the world has to offer a demon? Then it is time you found out. I am certain your friend Ladahlord could show you much of the world. Go with him, experience what the world has to offer, and know you can always return home if what you find does not suit you."

Tomoko bowed before Haruki, blinking away tears of gratitude. "Thank you, Father. I shall do as you say and carry your memory with me always."

"As will I, Father." Takashi bowed before Haruki as well.

"I am proud of you both." Haruki gazed at his sons one last time. From his back, his massive wings unfurled. "Do not grieve for me, for my death is a triumph. I see my sons rise!"

Haruki leaped into the air as the rain began to fall. The heavens rang with the sound of his roar as he dove straight into the stormy clouds. From where they stood, Takashi, Tomoko, and Ladahlord watched the powerful demon soaring amidst the raging wind, pouring rain, and flashing lightning. Haruki soared through the storm, his claws batting at the streams of rain and flying directly at the lightning. The strong winds didn't deter the powerful demon; his wings beat the air hard enough to rival the pounding of the thunder. But, as Haruki himself had said, no one- not even a demon- could win a battle against the forces of Nature.

And so ended the rule of Lord Haruki Kurosaki.
