King of Darkness
Long winding staircase spiraling into infinity
Simultaneously climbing and falling into the void
In the nothingness, starshine absent always
Haunting memories of times now past replay
Only one, he and he alone, now and forever
Darkness reigns, Darkness reigns
All this pitiful realm of night
Swathed in stars and shadows
He descends, ever descends the stair
Does he know of his journey? Does he care?
King Darkness moves down his realm
Single, horrid, eerie spiral of decadent decay
Invaders of old bow at his dark cloaked feet
Never will they rise as slowly, so slowly
Such trespassers are absorbed into oblivion
And Darkness reigns, Darkness reigns
King of all this miserable realm
Skeletal claws grip tight at nothingness
Ephemeral empire crumbles at a touch
Yet still he comes, marching silently on
Slowly sinking, ever decaying there in darkness
King's work is done; the body count is on the rise
Deathly flowers, pale stars, sprout from putrid beds
Collapsing substance, once flesh, once life,
Death Searcher Part4 Finale
There was no talking in the group as they moved quickly through the streets of the ruined city. There was actually one more number in their ranks than there should have been; Lichmaster Koraliam had wanted a demonstration of the spell that had freed Ariet. And though he was already starting to feel drained, Yerunan had obliged, if only not to throw any sort of suspicion on himself.
"So the corruption as you put it is just superficial?" Lichmaster Koraliam had asked.
"You can't disguise a soul."
The frown on the lichmaster's face said he clearly wanted to argue that point a little, but he refrained.
After Yerunan had passed the soul off to be necromated by someone else Ariet had grabbed him on the pretense of showing him something. Actually she just wanted to take him somewhere so that he could rest without having to explain himself to any of the other necroplics. He was grateful. Maybe grateful is too strong a word. He d

Ter'Nik was walking to the cafeteria again. He was hungry and there was nothing at the barracks. He saw it was looking like it was about closed, but walked over and got a few things to take back. As he was, he saw a familiar figure lying on one of the couches by the stairs to the monorail. He walked over and knelt down. It was Niterrel. "Hey," he said. "What're you doing here?"
She moaned lightly and opened an eye, "I have a roommate."
"Want to take a guess who?"
He was tired and shook his head.
"Well, let's just say she's a mutual acquaintance. One that I particularly dislike."
His eyes widened a little. "The Siren?" Ter'Nik shook his head. "No... You're kidding."
"I wish I were. I thought it was okay when I went back to the room and she was in bed alone." She scrunched her eyes shut as if trying to block something out, "Boy was I wrong."
"She had someone over?!"
Death Searcher Part3
The night passed uneventfully with the two of them taking refuge in some sort of burnt out vehicle. Or at least, that was all Yerunan could figure out that it was. Ariet called it a 'tank', but unfortunately that meant nothing to him. It was, however, a place to stay, and for that he was grateful. Or at least he was happy that he wasn't spending the night outside. There was the stench of something in the air; it was a something he couldn't identify, but it churned his stomach and made him thankful that he lived in a world that was at least marginally sane when compared to this one.
Ariet, for her part, was doing her best not to antagonize him any more than she already had. The heavy silence this created was in itself annoying; Yerunan could tell she was just dying to talk to him about something, or more likely, several somethings. And actually, it would probably be important in the morning. Right no
