Re: The Red Dragon Inn

Reading through what's been said so far, I've found that my views not only match up with most of what's already been stated, but that they've already been stated much better than I could have done: How many people show up here for Rhydin and end up leaving because there’s no Red Dragon Inn? Familiar...

Re: The Governor's Ball

Following Shae's reassurance that it would not be pathetic to wear roughly the same thing to this event that he'd worn to the last one with a Summer theme, the pair arrive together by his own vehicle. The warm air the Governor has ensured for, hopefully, the duration of the evening is very welcome a...

Re: Sublimation: Heat of the Moment

Days later… [/i] Gulping with a dry throat, he headed toward Lazarus and who they all knew was under that sheet. Abruptly, the abandoned mill was filled with screams. Salome's unintelligible hysterics mingled with Zane's barks of rebuke. He heard his name shrieked from a broken voice, but he did no...

Re: Sublimation: Heat of the Moment

I am unsure which extreme I prefer. Awakening to the home I'd known for seven years as if nothing was wrong in the world, allowed twenty precious minutes to spend with her in any way that I want. Until all Hell decides to break loose. Or…opening my eyes to find myself already holding her battered c...

Re: Sublimation: Heat of the Moment

Moments felt like minutes. Minutes, hours. Hours… They left him alone. His head hurt too much to understand anything they were murmuring about. Salome paced and Faith followed after her. Lazarus leaned up against the wall near a window missing its glass, his thick arms folded. Zane watched him. A ha...

Re: Sublimation: Heat of the Moment

Abruptly, the abandoned mill was filled with screams. Salome's unintelligible hysterics mingled with Zane's barks of rebuke. He heard his name shrieked from a broken voice, but he did not turn. Though he wanted to, he found. He wanted so badly to take his eyes from the white sheet, the pair of feet ...

Re: Sublimation: Heat of the Moment

"He still hasn't woken up yet?" "You want I should bite him, see if that gets him up?" "Faith. Ew." "Whaaat? He might taste good." "He's Nephilim. They all taste like God's piss." "Oh how would you know, Zane?" "CRIS?!" He came awake all of a sudden, as if life had decided to reach its hand directl...

Re: Sublimation: Heat of the Moment

It begins before the sun rises, when the threat of dawn is nothing but a purple bruise on the eastern horizon. The snap of bone, like the sound of a crushed egg breaks the silence of the room where two figures sleep. Some time later, a blue-white rune flashes into existence on the inside of Cris's l...

Re: Sublimation: Heat of the Moment

"Cris! CRIS!!" The desperate plea came through on a wave of pain, splitting his brain in two. He smelled smoke and blood, the air crackled with invisible power like the second before a lightning strike. He heard dragging, sand on wood, and felt the slap of a palm on his face. "Cris, wake up!" "B--Bi...

Re: Sublimation: Heat of the Moment

Bianca stripped the lid off of her coffee and whipped the piping hot liquid in an arc straight into the Forsaken's sweaty face. Moaning in pain and confusion, it veered off course from her and hit the wall, trying to clean its eyes on the broken plaster with no avail. Salome leaped from her seat, he...

Re: Sublimation: Heat of the Moment

Early morning sunlight streamed in through the loft's tall windows, bars of white gold radiance, soft in their silence as they warmed the pale, hardwood floor. Dust motes danced, floated gracefully like snowflakes to land invisibly wherever they fell. Water streamed steadily from the shower, hot lil...

Re: Sublimation: Heat of the Moment

07:38 … I've given up. What difference does it make if I race to get myself out of this bed or stay and bask in the comfort of these few precious moments with her, real, in my arms again before all Hell breaks loose? There is no difference. I cannot change what has already happened. Nothing I dream...

Re: Sublimation: Heat of the Moment

Every night, I dream you're still here The ghost by my side, so perfectly clear When I awake, you'll disappear Back to the shadows, with all I hold dear I tried to protect you, I can't let you fade But I feel you slipping, I feel you slipping away Digital Daggers -- Still Here 07:38 … … Did that re...
