Dawn in the Desert III
       Pillars of pastel twilight ascended the heavens of the pre-dawn sky, reaching for fleeting stars.  As might smoke before the flame, the pillars wavered, expanded, and gave way to the spark of the rising sun.  As the horizon came alight, and dawn's warmth washed over the dunes of the Calim, Red's eyes calmly opened, their mahogany hue cast ablaze with the coming of the dawn.  
       Red blinked away the haze of waking, and remained still for a moment, content to watch the silent rising of the sun.  
       "Morning," came a soft voice not far away.  A slight grin crept briefly across his face.  She had noticed.
       "Morning, indeed," he replied quietly.  He sat a few moments longer, back resting against his propped up leather pack, and took a deep, relaxing breath throu

Disembodied Dialogue
       "Damn, it's cold out here."
       "Y'know, we wouldn't be out here if it weren't for your sister."
       "And just what is that supposed to mean?"
       "What's taking this guy so long, I called him twenty minutes ago…"
       "Answer me, Harry, what did you mean about my sister?!"
       "Ugh, I just meant that her damn neuroses about other people in the room while she sleeps should have been taken care of when she was a kid.  You know it's true."
       "Are you seriously…?  You are, you're dogging my sister because of her mental illness.  Jesus why did I marry you?"
       "Sounded like a good idea at the time?"

The Truth Outside the Drawer
The Gideons are in the quad
       their bibles in the trash
Green covers mixed with Bud Light cans
       just out of their sight
Their smiles, hopes, and coke-frame glasses
       shine in vain.
Well intentioned hearts ignored
       seen just as he who so wields Christ
Credibility denied.
A zealot's faith is God's Achilles
       darkened by the fool
Where once an angel sung aloud
       Now screams the Crimson Cardinal
A pitied thing, an angel's tear
       to hear the vehement fool
Knowing he plants seeds of doubt
       that only God will reap.
The Gideons are in the quad
       gazing now upon me
Hiding tears, they shake their heads

Last of the fallen
Ashes in the fall
Standing here, a heart of fear
Eyes turned up to them all…
Failing light upon thee
My winged brothers' eyes
Fleeting gaze behind the clouds
Divine innocence dies…
Is this the last forgotten,
Last of the depths of the soul?
The last good garden?
Unlock my heart to them all.

Star Gazing
Tell me something of a star.
Tell me now, for who you are
Is not who you were yesterday.
Tell me something of a star.
Tell a thing that time can't mar,
True now as it was yesterday.
Tell me something of a star.
Tell me now, 'fore you're afar,
And now has become yesterday.
I can't kiss goodbye my yesterday, my friend.
Can't let it go, nor say "hello,"
To this day's sundown, yesterday.
So tell me now, just tell me;
Tell me something of a star.
That for a moment I might know
This stranger here from yesterday,
And who you really are.

Dawn in the Desert Pt. II
        The crackle of the dying bonfire lent a relaxed mask to the night.  Its warm, orange glow seemed to shield the rest of the world in darkness, and the rich, almost spicy scent of its wavering pillar of smoke gradually filled the air around the dark-haired young man whose own tiny ember, a length of incense on its last, glowing breath, went dark.
        "Who are you?" he asked into the dark, his voice quiet and stern but unthreatening.  For a moment, his only answer was further crackling from the fire beyond.  
        "A traveler," came the soft female voice, sounding no less alert than when she had spoken with the caravaneer nigh an hour hence. "Like you, by the sounds of it."
His eyebrow arched, unseen, "Like me?"  Again, silence save for the fire for several breaths.

Alright guys, I talked about it for a long time, but now, after months of preparation, is finally under way!  Our first handful of reviews are already up, and filming for our first video review begins on Monday of next week.  If you're not among those who've heard my rambling explanation of intent for this website, allow me to recap.  We'll be reviewing and parodying various forms of media, with an emphasis on games and films.  It's our intent to provide informative, insightful, and humorous reviews, giving honest opinions of products, regardless of their hype or popularity.  The journalism community and industry regarding gaming in particular is rife with obvious buy-offs and half-assed efforts.  We aim to stand apart from that.  Our opinions are not for sale, we shall resist bias to our utmost, and we'll strive to keep you laughing all the way.  

:iconkingatticus: , :iconsable-dreamer: , and I have been looking forward to this for quite some time, so it's tremendously exciting to finally bring this project to life.  We hope you'll join us, and contribute to our nascent community in the Last Level Forum.  Ta!

Don't suppose you guys might welcome a newbie to the party? :P I'm finishing up my own couple of armor sets (an NCR Ranger Vet set and a Combat Armor set for my girlfriend), so it'd be awesome to compare notes hands-on.
