“It is the fate of every lord to betray his vassals.

In all of Rokugan, there is no playwright quite like Hirohashi. He was not the greatest, nor the most acclaimed. His works lack the technical skill of Kakita Morushijin, the exquisite detail of Miya Hatori, or the vision of the esteemed Miya Mai. But Hirohashi had a way of telling a story that built a world around the viewer and made them feel as though they lived within it. He once told me that the audience could sense when the playwright was dishonest, portraying something of which he had no knowledge or experience. If the author

Beyond the Kaiu Wall, the Shadowlands were silent. Not the forbidding stillness of a predator's gaze, nor the eerie stillness of which they were famous, the quiet of menace, the calm of death. This was a silence that stirred in the gentle brush of the wind, parting the haze of orange fire curtaining the black of night, as if to reveal the sky-strewn constellation-faces of the Fortunes. It was as if the land had temporarily abated its inherent blasphemy. It was peace. Peace in the Shadowlands. Even the River of the Last Stand, normally loud with reckless crashing, was silent. The lands themselves were peaceful. The Shadowl

I've been gone for a while, DeviantArt. But now I'm back again.

I wasn't feeling very confident about my abilities as an artist. I'm nowhere near where I want to be, and I've gotten into the habit of second-guessing everything I do. Sometimes, it feels impossible to get to where I want to be on a technical level... I'm still just beginning in many ways.

But I owe it to my friends to keep on working at it, to keep on trying. Even if I am never at the level I want to be, I can't leave this behind. I'm going to keep on working. Progress is going to be slow, but there will be progress. I promise.
