A Distant Memory
Embrace kindness as you would
a weathered friend.
You never know who might be weathered,
or who could be a friend.

Vibrance
A flame among ash,
bated yet eager, dances
on a winter grave.

Yvanrel, Spirit's Sanctity
Ah, yes, I’ve heard tell of a land far, far away,
Mystical enough to put a stagger in a knight’s strut and sway—
A land where he can’t but fall to his knees, look on in awe
At the many twinkling lakes, the emerald glades, everything he saw.
And you wish to journey, young one, to such a wondrous place
That which requires a toilsome journey few would dare face?
Trolls, giants, and dragons stand in that long and weary path,
Foes among the most treacherous for their mighty wrath.
What, might I ask, calls and so spurs you into action?
Is it eternal glory, a chance to dance forever with the sun?
Or might it be something else—perhaps wanderlust,
To simply give yourself to its beauty as one must?
No matter—go on your quest, if that be your heart’s desire.
Who am I to extinguish the embers to your fire?
I only wish that you stay safe in this journey, my child,
For a pure soul should scarce be defiled.
Indeed, I have heard tell of this Yvanrel, Spirit

Rest Easy, Weary Soul
Your journey has been long,
and the end, not quite here,
but so far you’ve been strong,
and to mend, you need not fear.
Rest easy, weary soul.
The far horizon gleams bright
and calls out–to you,
a distant oasis free of fright
and grief, singing peace and truth.
Rest easy, weary soul.
It’s true that you’re breaking,
crack after crack showing through,
but you’re not done fighting–
your shaking fists have more to do.
So rest easy, weary soul.
You’ll be on the mend soon,
a soul too bright, too true
to be crushed into scattered dust;
no, the story isn’t finished for you.

Example Backstory Commish: Jinxy Charm
~SolaceSojourn~
Jinxy Charm (Toadstool)
 
Age: 17
Gender: Female
Race: Unicorn
Cutie Mark: Toadstool
Talent: Alchemy
Hometown: Ponyville
 
Personality: Jinxy tends to be alone often, save for her familiar, Trevor—not entirely of her own choice, for many other ponies dislike her for her eccentricity. She likes to fiddle with her concoctions and oftentimes, they blow back in her face. That only adds to her excitement, however—sometimes, she is displeased when her recipes don’t go awry. She takes pleasure in pushing the envelope with her potions.
 
The last thing anyone wants to do is to mess with her potions, even if it corrects an otherwise wrong combination of ingredients. She and Trevor are the only ones that touch her concoctions. If given a chance, though, she would greatly enjoy the company of others. After all, she doesn’t usually get an audience for her… experiments.
 
Some ponies call her insane. She calls herself a pionee

Literature
Wildfire Harmony
And there, in the fire, we danced
for days upon weeks and
months, until we both became
incinerated,
burned far beneath the skin, bone,
soul… for we were too
similar, familiar, and
found that we danced with ourselves
and it was then that we
hated each other
like we’d never met,
like we’d always fought,
like we’d forgotten the dance,
but we didn’t.
The fire always scorched,
searing right past the love, infatuation,
illusion… and forced us to behold
everything we’d been hiding,
but could see in
stark clarity thanks to
the dance.
Only when we
separated and could behold
each other’s glow from
hundreds of miles apart,
could we bask in the
wildfire harmony.

Summer Fun
            “Tell me again vhy ve are out here, Violet?” Ironshod asked sardonically in his thick, foreign accent. He stepped over some massive vine growths and rolled his eyes when Violet Vigil giggled, hopped over more vines that covered the ground, and responded with an exaggerated tone.
            “Why, is a bit of nature too much for the big Iniltearian? Should we head on back to the smithy where you feel safe and sound?” She looked back, winked, and flicked her tail, assuming a dominant posture on top of a pile of rocks as large as she was. “Don’t worry, Iron, your fiancé will keep you safe. She is big, strong mare!”
            “Indeed…” Iron, however, knew all too well why they were visiting the Everfree Forest, as Violet had heard of a particular plant and was curious t

The World's Orchard
How can one person
remind the world that love
is not a weapon?
    It is a peacemaker for a free life.
I've seen daggers thrown
in words--draw blood only seen
in tears shed each night,
    mourning for your love and not you.
I've worn every mask
to prove happiness to all
others but myself...
    but none of them let my heart breathe.
I've died more times in
a few sentences than there
are days in a year
    and yet, only my ashes are left behind.
I am reborn through
the rich sunset and soft breeze,
talking with a friend
    about nothing and everything at once.
While I am but one
person, it only takes one
to love another one,
    so I shall till a bit more of the world's orchard every day.

In My Place
All my gold had turned to gray
and all the love I had yet to say
left when you decided
to die, though I wished it
any other way, and of
my heart, my spirit, my soul,
there was left
a gap, a void, a hole
when you decided
I should live
but, ever again
I wondered,
would my life be full,
and yet,
if I found,
on any date,
any others
about to enter
heaven’s gate,
I’m sure I would
do the same, and for
death’s call,
make them late,
since they, too, would see
with eyes reflecting
you and me
that every life
which blooms another
is a lifeboat in a bloody sea,
and I’m sure you’re getting lonely.

Tradition
Dawn’s first light
heralds our sojourn
in the forest.
Father begins
an old tune,
crisp bagpipes
casting back memory
for the whole of the day.
Step after vigilant step,
minutes become hours
and then days.
After the third sun,
I hear no more music.
Father gives thanks
and the bagpipes
with a final, solemn ode—
when the winds sing
that you, too, perish,
cast your own song
and be immortalized.

Interests
Life goes on and a lot has changed recently. Work's gotten better, though! Just recently moved into a new place and got settled, so things have calmed down a bit. Just focusing on the current days and improving on what I can. I hope to write more soon, but will focus on personal things first and foremost. Hope the rest of you are doing well! :heart:

A Distant Memory
This year has been hard. I feel like I've lost myself here and there, but I never forget how I got here. I can't.

The only thing I can do is keep trying.
