The Tide and The Romance by TheDarknessWithin08 The Tide and The Romance :iconthedarknesswithin08:TheDarknessWithin08 0 0
Literature
And We Were Silent
Tommy and the others had left in a clatter
Their voices still ringing in our ears and
Echoing off of the walls like a memory of the past
We were chatting and yelling and waiting and waiting
Our patience was high for the Titans to arrive
Our hearts were soaring and our minds were reeling
The sharpness of beer and sweat still clung to the air
We were panting and grinning from ear to ear
When Too and Troy stepped onto the stage
The screams of both grown men and grown women
Greeted our God like bright sunshine
Our hearts were breaking, our tears were flowing
Like rivers into the deepest indigo ocean
But something was wrong and our Idol was not smiling
The world became narrow, tunneled and dark
We were lost in the panic that followed
Too folded his pale fingers, all but the first
Our dark vision became blurred and
The air became tight and harder to breathe
Too placed those first fingers onto his lips
And we were silent.

The Darkness Within Eternity Prologue
Prologue
I woke that morning to the sweet, elegant sounds of opera mixed with the heavy pounding of an electric guitar filling my ears. My hand reached over and popped the little button that turned off my alarm. It returned to its hiding spot under the covers, quick as lighting, and I grumbled about it being too cold in my room while I eased my way out of the bed regretfully. One toe reached out gently and touched the carpet before drawing back. I heard my sister get up and open her door under me, heading for her bathroom downstairs. Both feet went flying to the floor as I ran to my own bathroom, still mumbling about the temperature.
The first thing I did was look in the mirror. The same old reddish green eyes surrounded by deep purple and blue, sleeplessness marks and then by clear, white skin, greeted me with the same old coldness. The same old tight jaw and cheek bones and thin neck and shoulders stood before me on a body that was thin and ravaged by my previous 'attacks.' The same

The ball was beginning to get overcrowded and I was beginning to get overheated so I decided to step outside and get some fresh air. I went to an empty balcony with my glass of wine and leaned against the stone railing, watching the stars and listening to the people chatter behind me. I sighed contently and closed my eyes for a moment, setting my glass on the thick, wide rail.
After a few moments of blissful inner reflection, I heard footsteps behind me accompanied by the soft tapping of a cane on solid ground. The steps clunked on the stone and tile and I knew then they were those of boots. The boots of a male. I gathered my wine and turned around in time to see Lord Darkwood limping towards me. I remembered what my mother and grandmother had said about him and instantly tried to think about ways of avoiding him but my rational brain also reminded me that he was the one who had saved my life in the first place. So I just froze there like a moron.
He was still leaning on the cane but h

Untitled Lin Bei Fong FanFiction
Preview
My mother often told me stories of her journeys with Avatar Aang. With each telling, she would add something new. It made the stories... more fun. After all, it was just the two of us. That made things hard. But my mother was hard, as well. What more did you expect from the chief of police in Republic City. The Bei Fong's are known for their headstrongness. My mother was no exception. But those stories opened her up more, exposing me to the inner softness that dwelled deep within her. I loved her and the stories. They made my life softer. With them, I was free.
I recall those stories now as I sit here. I watch the ground, waiting for Amon to deliver his blow to me. I recall my life, hoping this will not be the last time I view it. I watch it pass by, behind glazed eyes. I wait for the emptiness I will have inside of me for eternity. I wait for my inner death.
Amon is coming, one of the guards says to the other. They stand at attention as he enters. I still watch the ground. I w

Chapter 2:
Wistful
A large, bear-like hand clothed in black leather gently brushed my wild crimson hair away from my face. I sighed and smiled, my eyes closed quickly, savoring the feel of my roots falling away like a bloody ocean onto the blue silk pillow. My hands stretched above my head and gripped the smooth headboard, running long its length in opposite directions until two large bedposts blocked them from traveling any farther. They dropped back to the cool covers and smoothed any wrinkles away from my body.
When the heavy weight lifted from the bed, making it shake slightly and squeak, I groaned and opened my eyes. The room was dark, clad in blues and blacks that blocked out the sunlight that threatened to enter through the threads in the curtains. Everything was clean and well kept.
The dark figure leaned over me from one side of the bed. I shifted my legs under the silk. The same hand that had lingered over my hair cupped my face and caressed it. It seemed as though he was gre

Prologue:
Remembered
I could almost feel their disgusting breath on my neck as I charged off into who knows where. The mist that swirled around me started to lift and I knew I would be seen if I didn't lose them soon. Their jeers and laughter cut through the cold silence, sending chills up and down my body. Their horses' hooves made the ground shake and Zeo neighed loudly, frightened. I patted his neck and told him to hush. Our heartbeats were both on the same terrifyingly fast tempo. I breathed hard and little wisps of warm air made clouds in the rising mist.
I jolted the reins and looked back just in time to see a hand dive for my hood. I squealed and dug my heels into Zeo's flank. He snorted and rounded a corner sharply, nearly throwing me off. The others veered to follow me, leaving the first to take a longer turn.
I bent low over Zeo and tried to make myself flatter. I whispered in short puffs of air, "Good boy. Keep going, boy. It's going to be okay." Zeo nodded his head and leap

Chapter Ten:
Songs from an Alien
***
Many, many days passed with Rath gone. We talked through letters, but it was almost never enough. I sat on my bed, watching the life outside the castle. Finally, another letter came for me from Rath.
My loveliest Scyra,
Good news, the mission is finished. I am on my way back to Scy as you read this. Time gave us clues as to where to find the crystal, and we did. This mission was a rough one though. Don't be surprised when you see me: I'm pretty beaten up and it's hard to heal yourself on a different planet. I should be back by midnight on the day that you receive this letter.
P.S. I have some surprises for you, three to be exact.
With all the love in my body, X
I felt happiness overwhelm me when I read the letter. So, I reread it and reread it several times. Carolyn smiled when she saw that I was satisfied and went to do whatever the queen of a whole planet does.
The next few hours seemed to drag by. I picked up several books and flipped through the

Message To Haters
Dear Hate Commenter(s):
Ha. I laugh at you who send out hate comments. Ha, ha, ha. I just can't help but laugh. It's so funny to see someone put a hate comment on a good piece of art or literature just because you disagree or you don't like it. I smile even as I write this. But the humor ends as I send out this message:
Just because you don't like something or you disagree with an idea, doesn't mean that you have to go poke your nose in to someone's life and point it out. You don't need to do this with every little mistake you find as well. People make mistakes. Even I do. Even you do.
Every time you put down a hate comment, you think you've won. You think you're on top of the world because you think you put someone else down. You take pride in reading other people's comments as they stick up for the person you've offended.  But what you don't realize is: you haven't won. You have not climbed to the top of the mountain and you haven't gained anything. The only thing you have

Chapter Unknown:
Snow and Birthday Presents
I woke up on the first day of winter on the peace-making planet, Scy, otherwise known as my birthday. The day I would turn nineteen, marrying age.
I shifted under my covers into Rath's waiting arms. He looked down at me with a smile and said, "Look outside, it's snowing." I got out of the bed and walked to the window. I pulled back the curtains and smiled.
A blanket of fresh snow covered the entire planet. The trees and plants drooped a little under the weight but it looked beautiful. I cuddled into Rath's body and reached up to stroke his hair.
Rath kissed my neck and gently wrapped his hands around my waist. I sighed with happiness and watched the snow fall from the sky.
"Let's go outside," Rath whispered.
I nodded and pulled on my gown, that still fit amazingly, and my torn robes with silver chains adorning them. Rath pulled on his usual outfit, but with long sleeves and a long black robe to go over it.

Chapter Nine:
Depression
I suffered from loneliness and depression after Rath left. Carolyn tried to comfort me but in vain. I sat under my tree and read or wrote in my diary. My mother smiled and told me he would return soon, but I ignored her. I wouldn't believe it until I saw it: that's how I always have been. I needed proof for me to believe things.
One day, Carolyn woke me up saying, "Hurry, my dear! Get dressed and come down stairs! Dress in one of your gowns today."
I did as I was told and put on an elegant black dress. I looked in the mirror in my bathroom and noticed that my skin was paler than the day before. I ignored that and trotted down stairs. Carolyn was smiling. A line of men from Scy stood behind her.
Suitors.
I sneered and hissed to my mother, "Why are you giving me suitors?"
"It wasn't my idea, dear," she whispered. "I had no say in the matter. But I still don't really approve of Rath yet." The last sentence was almost reluctant.
