Biblical Musings: The Newly Freed
No matter what the Bible's stance on what is morally right and wrong - and this is Sunday, so I'm going to try to refrain from controversial material one way or another - one thing has always been clear from Jesus's teachings. "Early in the morning he came again to the temple. All the people came to him, and he sat down and taught them. The scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman who had been caught in adultery, and placing her in the midst, they said to him, “Teacher, this woman has been caught in the act of adultery. Now in the Law, Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?” This they said to test him, that

CHARACTER NAME: Rana SPECIES: Elemental VARIANT/SUBTYPE: Fire Sprite GENDER: Female APPEARANCE: Rana takes the rough shape of a modestly-blessed humanoid female with frizzy wavy locks – a set of flames of a darker shade acting as clothes for her form, which includes a conical witch hat with a mouth on the front of it. Her eyes and spark-like heart have a golden yellow glint to them. Always with a smile on her face, Rana’s inner fire dances between warming hearts and setting the town ablaze. She wields a broom where the straw part is constantly ablaze like a torch. ABILITIES Vroom Broom: Rana can fly naturally, but her broom acts

The Jamboree of Jadedness We live in a society where it is no longer a rebellion of intellectualism to criticize what's popular - to criticize what we perceive to be popular has become what is popular.

So, those who follow the more "shitposty" side of politics may be aware of a relatively new silly theory based on a study linked below from PsychToday, where it's believed that something like 25% of the total population has an 'inner voice' with an inner monologue.

Thursday Prompt - 10-4-2018
There it was. That sound again. A low moan, a low long moan with a auditory texture like creaking wood which echoed through down his spine, reverberating through his vertebrae. The young boy rose from his restless slumber, grabbing his flash light, and made his way down the steps - stepping on each step of the stairs with feather-light care, as he  outside out the back door - for groaning meant the restless dead walked. Maybe he could get a glimpse before they saw him. See him up and about, like he had so many days before. He stepped through the rain, the dirt underneath giving way to mud which clung to the bottom of his feet - but he had t

Legend of the Winged Knight Ch. 17 (BTACDragons)
Chapter 17: Silver Spoon “I appreciate your company. The Queen will be reassured that I have some sort of accompaniment when I meet up with her.” The prince did not pack as extravagantly as she had expected. On the contrary, most of the burden he carried were things like basic rations, arrows for his bow, his sword. She had half-expected him to carry a bed with lace curtains with him. Instead, she found herself ashamed of bringing as many rations as she had – nearly double what he had packed. Meanwhile, his white-scaled feylizard - a doll-sized dragon - Razgriz, preened itself. He paused his maintenance of his scales to e

Chapter 16: Questioning No matter how glorious the victory in a war, the clean-up was always something to dread. And the battle of D'issan was no different. Many were wounded, injured, or dead, thanks in no small part to the tar beast, but also by the hands of man and dragon alike. Corpses charred to a crisp, riddled with arrows, pierced with spears which lay broken at another corpse's side. And whether it was a small fishing and farming village like Kriss, or a bustling center of civilization like D'issan, the Word of Daama was clear – the dead were to be sent off with dignity, no matter friend or foe. And so, as Kari deposited the

Chapter 15: Disillusioned The party had left her spent. While Kari had insisted on not drinking, she did allow herself to loosen up, and laugh along with all at the celebration within the Great Hall – and even though she had not partaken in drink, the laughter was its own aiding ale in helping forget about the pain in her wings. Helping to steady an inebriated Liangyu, the two made their way down one of the streets to the inn they were afforded for the next few nights. In spite of Liangyu's stumbling causing her to be a little unsteady herself given her companion's hefty weight, Kari found herself comforted by the arm around her should

Chapter 14: Humility The Winged Knight was not one for parties. As such, they stood off in the corner, sipping quietly from her glass, meditating on the effects of the day, her wings bandaged and wrapped with ointment-soaked bandages, the muscle having been singed, and the feathers in spots having been burned off. The healers had demanded she rest in spite of her protests – and she was essentially a prisoner of the earth until they healed. For an avian, being grounded was like having both of her legs broken. Flying was freedom – to have movement stripped from her was a fate worse than death. Yet, worse than her tenderized, burne

Chapter 13: Naivete Already on the backfoot, not good. The Winged Knight scowled, as they leaped away from the clash, swinging her naginata to bat away her swift blade, the sword barely missing her shoulder as she narrowly weaved out of the way. “Why did you hesitate?” Was she in her head? Was she a psionic? Already the drowess was on her again, her blade crashing against her naginata's shaft. “Now I have you cornered, little bird. A shame! I wanted this to last a bit longer!” “Shut up and stand down!” The Winged Knight swung her plated boot up into Remeira's gut, causing her to hiss as she stumbled ba

Chapter 1: Flesh and Blood “Momma, momma, I’m scared!” The thirteen foot tall hulk of a cyclops restrained the screaming, hysterically flailing girl with one tree-sized arm, as he helped his fellows - a similarly oversized troll and an ogre - clean out the overturned carriage. The nobleman could not help but stare on helplessly, as his feet were rooted to the ground, plastered by fear, terror. Around him lay his dead guards and servants under his employ - men and women who he had gotten to know over the years, and held small parties for - they were like family. And there they lay strewn across the valley’s earth, as

Chapter 2: Prey The master had sent Liangyu into town for supplies for their small shrine on the outskirts. The orc wandered the settlement, clad in a plain cloak over her studded leather chestplate and cloth leggings. All around her were slaughtered and split open carcasses of cows and sheep, men and women, as well as flattened bits of feathers and flesh - the innards exposed for the elements. Fields of rice, corn, and wheat continued to burn and clog the sky with thick plumes of smoke. And from within a nearby barn, there were the sounds of struggle: a struggle which was punctuated by a rotund, balding farmer in torn rags being thrown thro

Chapter 3: Philosophy Kari groaned. The rescue hadn’t gone exactly how she had planned it, even with the orc’s help. The titanic snakekind womanbeast overwhelmed them - she was far too strong. But at least the survivors had time to get away in the time it had taken for her to play with them. The avian helped the orc off herself, pushing at her shoulder to roll her off of herself, before standing and helping the orc up by her arm. “Thank you for your assistance, Miss.” She took a deep breath, wincing at having been launched into the burning shed via another the orc projectile, which only compounded her wounds from the

Chapter 4: Reasons It had been nearly a week since the attack by the titanic snakekind femme fatale. Kari and Liangyu had helped the survivors where they could, and the fires had since died down. Their interactions had been strictly professional - the orc had lent her strength to clearing debris, while the avian had called upon Daama’s blessings to heal the injured as well as orchestrating the able-bodied. The avian assisted in burying the dead as well - arguably, that was the hardest part. Each departed that she watched be lowered into the grave was like a tally of her failures - of people she could have protected. Particularly that o

Forgive Me Father for I Have Sinned/MC8
The little farming settlement never stood a chance against the wrath of the heavens. The Halgian Empire’s valkyries came down upon the tiny hamlet like the divine fist of the One, crushing the feeble resistance of the Fallen sympathizers on the little village, which had committed the grave crime of housing a wounded Fallen - a Halgian that had turned away from the Light via heresy and blasphemy. Aragonius watched the burning village. His face was surprisingly frozen and stiff in contrast to the ravenous, roaring inferno. The armored seraph donned in gold-lined divine metal plate had long since be numbed to the guilt that serving the L
