Wind Boy 18
Dad caught sight of my faraway form, and it was like he suddenly remembered I was there. A big grin spread across his face and he took a dive in my direction. He and Amanda both returned to where I waited, he rumpling my tunic and laughing, she giggling. I felt the tiniest prick of jealousy. I'd never be able to race with her like that, so fast that she had to fight to keep up and was reduced to breathless laughter after. The two of them phased between shimmering translucency and their human-like colorings, as wind spirits are wont to do when they're high-energy. Amanda elbowed me, and I smiled. "So Sky," Dad started, his eyes bright. "I to

Amanda screeched happily and tumbled away after him. I watched their game of tag, which was impossible for me to keep up with since I could neither dissolve with the wind nor cross such far distances with the furious speeds they could. But every time they let go of their shape for a few moments at a time, I tried to follow the gusts and pale trails of diamond-like shine with my eyes. Amanda created soft swirling patterns this way and that, spinning and changing the way you see dust in the air do when the sun shines on it. Dad, on the other hand, dissolved more like a burst of fire, but clear and elusive, trailing just hints of silver in expl

“Good morning, Matthew,” Amanda said easily. Wind People don’t bother with formalities most of the time, not even between youth and adults. “G’morning,” my dad responded cheerily, rubbing his fist into my scalp before finally releasing me. I huffed and combed out my silvery hair with my fingers, but I was pleased. At fourteen I was hardly a kid anymore – so I thought, anyway – but I soaked up every bit of fatherly affection I could, as if I were a sun-starved plant yearning for any little drop of light I could latch onto. “And how do you fare, Miss Amanda?” Dad asked. He made a qui

Wind Boy 15
Mom stood at the edge of the cliff near her hovel, staring out over the choppy sea as the sun sank lower. I drifted low and touched ground beside her. The stiff wind blew right into my eyes, pushing the wetness back from them. I welcomed the feeling. It was as if Amanda were still here, trying to wipe off my tears. I took Mom's hand, as I had done many times before when she stood at her lonely seaside vigil. But this time was different. I understood now the ache, the lump in my throat I'd never be able to swallow - the way the breeze blowing past my dried, salty lips almost felt like her kiss again. For me, it was final. Amanda was gone. But

THE LEGEND OF ZELDA: TWILIGHT PRINCESS Chapter Four Transformation * Come, the kingdom is in danger! Please, won’t you believe me? Get out of there... Deep blue eyes. Link... I woke with a start. The woman's voice faded from my mind. What time is it…? I groaned, then dragged my hand up to cover my face. My hair tangled in with my fingers. It couldn’t be long before sunrise, could it? No bothering with getting back to sleep, not now that the night was more of a penetrable grey than simple, sheer blackness. I’d be up at dawn, anyway. I stood up and stretched, then went to splash water on my face. I looked u

Little Mermaid Drabble
“Do you even know what ‘witch’ means?” the sea witch asked me. She traced a shell-like fingernail across the spine of one of her bound collections, mouthing the foreign title’s pronunciation. A tremor wriggled its way through my body, making the webbing between my fingers flutter in the current. “It means…a woman who does magic,” I said, my gills contracting unevenly. I folded my arms tightly around my dark brown, scaled torso and flushed my fins forward so I could back away – subtly, or so I thought. “Evil magic,” I added in a mutter, avoiding her eyes. The sea witch turned

Normally I'm all cool when sites change layouts and how they operate. But I guess since dA has been static for so long I'm really thrown off...?

  • I was familiar with the musical before and I LOVED the movie. I thought it was faithful to the musical and beautifully done!
  • I was familiar with the musical before and I wasn't a fan of the movie, mostly because of the singing. They say they wanted to put acting before singing, but why couldn't they just do what Broadway did and find people who act AND sing?
  • I was familiar with the musical before and did not like it. It was too violent/sexual/emotionally harrowing for me.
  • NOT familiar with the musical but loved it! I found it moving and beautiful!
  • Not familiar with the musical before, but not impressed with the singing.
  • Not familiar with the musical before, but it was too violent/intense/sexual/generally gritty and unpleasant for me to enjoy or even like.
  • I read the book! :D
  • I read the UNABRIDGED book! 8D
  • So. Bored. So. Long. Why is cat woman sing-yelling at me...?
  • Didn't see it. It's about the French Revolution, right? (BTW, no it's not; it's 20-40 years AFTER)
