"Our business here is finished, then." He tilted his head, smiling only somewhat. "I suppose it is—for now," he replied in immaculate French. Smoke curled around his fingers and drifted up to his face, sickly sweet. Behind the thick smoke shrouding the room and their hushed conversation entirely in French, they were paid no heed by the others lounging in the parlour. She pursed her lips. "And your end of the bargain?" "We shall live up to it, sweet Béatrice." "It's Vanessa now, Davide, and you would do well to remember that," she countered, twisting her mouth in a grimace.

Of The Arena: Prologue
Throughout history, kings have risen and fallen. The first to ascend to divine power was a general of the barbarian north; but in the woodlands, he became the most honoured and powerful man in the civilized world. Not only did he conquer the Nation and bring the provinces together into a single, unified superpower, but he was known as a fair and honest ruler. He allowed each man to retain his religion and land without forcing conformity and assimilation; though he implemented taxes on the earth and harvest, he spent this newly created monarch gold on improving the infrastructure of his great Nation.

Gunslinger: pt 2
"Papa says you got to teach me how to shoot better, Alice." He held up the pistol and smiled as innocently as he could. She eyed her brother narrowly as she snatched her pistol from his hands and slipped it into her belt. "Brandon, I don't think you're really ready to shoot a gun," she intoned carefully. He was staring up at her with sparkling blue eyes that were half demanding, and half pleading. It was almost a disturbing sight. Despite being only three years younger than she was, he still acted like a little boy rather than a man. Uncomfortable, Alice turned away and grunted as she hoisted a crate onto the lip of the wagon.

Gunslinger: pt 1
With a grunt, she hoisted the hay and stacked it on top of its comrades. Sweat beaded her forehead and made her scalp itch, and her hair stick to her head, but when she stepped back, dusting her hands off on her trousers, she smiled at her accomplishment. The hay was all lashed together and shoved to the back of the barn, ready for use. Something crunched behind her, and she turned to see her father leading two horses into the barn. His grizzled face stretched into a lined smile when he saw the impressive stack behind his daughter. "Good work, Alice," he remarked, sounding pleased. "Thanks, Papa." She jogged up to him, boots crushing the lo

He brings down a collection of albums alphabetically organized and covered in attic's dust He lets me choose black vinyl records to crackle under a needle and spin for our ears He hums along as we lounge and listen to the sweet notes of Bachman and Bloomfield He eagerly flips from side A to side B some warped by sunlight others scratched from use He turns them to bring out our smiles and hold assurance that the music will never die

Travel in Tamriel
We're giving 10 hours of time dedicated to travel in a day (keep in mind, this is a sensible traveling average). If the hours traveled in a day increases, more ground can be covered, but logically at the cost of fatigue from sleep depravation, malnourishment, and then subjected to mistakes along the road or path for trouble. - 250 is the most widely agreed upon map legend for distance in Tamriel, and is used here (this is based on the Tamriel map circulating, crafted by nerds more thorough than I could ever dream to be). Walking Should the average man or mer travel at walking speed of 3mph, this is the formula. Different heights, species,

The Birth of Existence
Once, very long ago, before time had name or meaning and existence was only a swirling tempest of chaotic oblivion, the only life was that of the Immortal Soul. It was the very essence of change; in one moment, the Immortal Soul was a solar wind, whipping nonsensically through the vast plains of nothing; the next, it was the single white light shining proudly in the endless dark and seething shadows. It knew not how long it had been alone in the void, but it grew bored and it grew lonely. Seeing in a strange dream a sphere of deep blue, endless green and craggy brown, the Immortal Soul decided to construct a world to consume it's boredom. It

Interactive Reading Extravaganza! +Purity update
The Library: an Interactive Reading Extravaganza! Okay, deviantART, listen up! I know I don't hang around here much anymore, and I'm sorry for it. I don't imagine I'll post anything any time soon save for the odd journal - but I do plan to keep you generally up to date on that. I was looking at my book list recently, and realized that there are so many that I haven't read, despite having owned them for years. I was originally going to go through alphabetically and just chug through them all until they were all read and done. Last night, I had the crazy idea to let other people choose what I read next. This way, not only do others get to p

Hey now. Purity is for sale.
The time has come—Purity is upon us! Caitlyn is a bright, headstrong girl with a twisted past she unconsciously smothers into lost memories. When she is only eleven, she is kidnapped by her father's business rival in hopes of giving up much-needed information. Refusing to talk – and knowing nothing of use – she is placed in the Silver Room, a desperate man's sinister torture chamber, where she meets the monsters who inhabit her nightmares.  A lifetime later, on an innocent summer vacation to her paternal relatives in Romania's notorious province Transylvania, these memories return in a flood when she meets strangers with an aversion to sunlig

Purity, and other news
This is where I haunt the Internet nowadays, my blog on Wordpress where I release teasers and short stories and general updates on what's going on in my life and writing. I haven't been active on dA lately; in fact, I only check it to see the art of one particular person. However, I do have news for those who once religiously followed my updates on a little vampire story called Purity. Caitlyn and Fane have waited in the virtual depths of my computer long enough. Thanks to some convincing, I'm going to dig her out and give her another rewrite, and this one will be the last. She will be finished, once and for all, and I'm probably going to se
