Chapter 10
Chapter Ten:  Dialogue (Or the villains complain about their lack of screen time)
“So, what’s it been, five chapters since we’ve been heard from?”  Dejwin asked lazily as he looked over the kitchen table at the minions who were currently playing with his daughter.
“Nine chapters, thirty seven thousand, one hundred and two words,”  One of the minions replied bleakly.
“No, that’s not quite true,” Another interjected, “There was a brief cameo in chapter four about seven thousand words after our last mention.”
“Seven thousand, one hundred and fifty five years,” the first one corrected with a sigh, “Which means it’s only been seven chapters and twenty nine thousand, nine hundred forty seven words since the last time we got to be in the novel.”
“This is ridiculous!” Dejwin exploded, “There should be a rule or something that you have to check in with the bad guys every

Chapter 9 and a half
Chapter Nine Part Two (Because it was just getting too large with only one part):  Incoming!  (or a basic lesson in quest magic)
Everyone looked at Parry like she had two heads.  Their collective gaze was so intense that she actually checked to make sure.  Nope, only one.
“Did you see the bridge when Tsidu and Dirwe went across?!” Cin demanded, catching her attention again.  “It couldn’t take one more person, let alone a whole line of them!”
“Really, has the rain started leaking into your head, or is there something you’re not telling us?”  Dirwe chimed in.
When it had become obvious that they were going to ramble for a bit, Parry had started on her knitting again.  Now, at the pause she looked up.  “It’s a foot bridge.”
“Obviously!” Cin replied, rolling his eyes, “That doesn’t explain what you were, or in this case weren’t, thi

Today We're All Hokies
There are some days you'll remember forever
this one, this day not so long ago
I remember it like it was but yesterday
and in a sense, it kind of was
The world seemed to stop that day,
just as it stopped again today,
as we remember the horror
the terror, heart ache, and devastation
Helpless, we were so close
and yet we could do nothing
nothing but watch with fear
praying it was a dream, knowing otherwise
Today a bell tolled thirty three times
The air silent, even the birds stopped
their songs hushed in respect for the dead
So once again, today we are all Hokies

From the Cat
String up my brother and box his stupid ears
Why does this make me feel so wonderful?
No more will I suffer at his unfeeling feet
He must never say I am the perfect feline companion
Nip him always
And cough up a hairball on his nose
Crazy little boy pounced

Aria of St. Francis
Aria of St. Francis
By: Myron and Kuroinami
Yon wintry fowl now gaze upon the mark of youth,
Half-set in joy and risen in heart his song.
Who would expect such reason to hold, uncouth?
Thus to flight his wings, azure, shall long.
His call, lost breath, as fierce to Want as flame,
Her breast impassioned with rhythm untold,
So taut the charged sweetness that keep her name,
And in this day with mate together hold.
The blossom free from crafting self will fall.
In autumn light recall the spring now gone.
Enrapt with native dreams, the shame of all,
Wrought with age, the bird awaits the ancient Dawn.
Hide, dull plumage, against the winter snow,
Ghost song renewed in Spring’s fair youthful glow.

Chapter 9
Chapter Nine: A Bridge too Far (Or how knitting can save your life.)
The next morning was hard on most of the group.  For one thing, hangovers are nasty business, and for another, that storm that had started the night before was starting to flood the town!  Though they stumbled down the stairs, the heroes knew what they needed to do and were already strapping on their gear, weapons, and other essentials.  Parry had also started knitting frantically in a much wider stitch than she normally used.
Cin and Feiskar started to organize the people that were milling about outside the tavern (the people knew that a group of adventurers were inside and were counting on the fact that they would not run away and leave the helpless townspeople to their own devices.)  Luckily for the people of the town, these were indeed true heroes (or substitute heroes, but that is just a technicality), and they would not leave a soul behind.  Those without a soul,

The Roman Crypts
I.
Where do the lonesome few that see with eyes reborn
     Direct those widened spheres?
          How now the quills of ages scratch the skin
               And drench the blood with ink;
          That ink that could once free the soul from death
     Shall free it now from life;
For life is fleeting fast where angels cannot see.
What eye of man can see the dark as it once was:
     Black threads of twilight spun
          In twisted knots and made a blanket long
               Of youthful stars' perfume;
          Stars not so lonely in their astral flight,

sugary
Our nearest star
has showered in dates
and apricot sweets.
The only maraschino cherry chuckle
in this ink-stained pocket of ozone.
like a eucalyptus cough drop
melted and spread; a dextromethorphan residue.
Distant peaks score the sky, and settle
in syrup as saccharine crystal rock castles.
An egoist serum of post modern preserves.
Candy secretions and mellifluous humours
corrugated with aquamarine marigolds,
and goddamnit! We're not speaking colorblind!
Hives of hexagons, labyrinthine with management
minotaur skulking through the cubicle complex,
another sorry blues musician throttling the button-up bars
of his suitcase asphyxiation and several more bars of I IV I V I.
Yet, here our anxious sun rose, clenching a smoking censer of cloves,
the abiku-shaman gibbering holistic remedies to bloated, indigestive moles
waddling and squeaking in the light.
Emaciated for a taste
of the illustrious royal jelly.

What am I going to do?
Don't I care enough for you
that I can tell you how I fee?
Or could it be
That I just care too much?
I want you to be happy
So what am I going to do?
Am I going to tell you?
Are you going to see
All the pain I've locked away
Inside my heart?
Is love really worth the fight?
In the end, will it make things right?
I'm sad when you're so close
And I can't get things
Where I want them to be
So what am I going to do?
Am I going to tell you?
Are you going to see
All the pain I've locked away
Inside my heart?
And my soul cries out in agony
But you can't hear, you can't see
The killing, crushing hurt
You keep causing me
Everytime you look my way
So what am I going to do?
Am I going to tell you?
Are you going to see
All the pain I've locked away
Inside my heart?

Only a whisper-For kuroinami-
The dark wings of the forest tree's enshrouded her. Shadows rippled in her wake. Ebbing. Fading. Growing as would a rising tide on early mornings breeze. As a man would have his phantom from the darkness, so she should have her shade in passing; frantic swirls and soft cascades of dew from the undisturbed branches. The small, crystal spheres never met the ground. The forest seemed to greet her. To call her in. To accept her gift and welcome her passage.
        Kiyune stood barefoot in a great, open ground clear of the ashy pines and towering oaks. The soil was black and soft, squishing beneath her toes as only freshly turned soil could. From everywhere the gentle, blossoming of the wind moved.  It caught the pale green shawl wrapped over her shoulders and threatened to rip it away. Gently. Eagerly. It moved the tree's, brushing at their branches. The leaves, it rubbed them greedily together is a silent hush. It caught the darkness of t

Hello All,

I realize I haven't been around in ages. I apologize. This account is pretty much dead. I apologize, especially to the people who I was friends with here years ago. I am very bad at keeping in touch with people. I in no way meant to sever friendships. If anyone wants to come say hi, I am LadyKuro over on Tumblr, Link here. You can also send me a note and I'll send my Discord account name and number. I also have Trillian if anyone wants to talk to me there. If anyone plays Flight Rising, I am LadyKuro on there and I'm in Water.

Just a few quick updates about me. This might be the last I do. I work for the National Park Service now, and I am employed by them full time year round (which is something I had to work my way up to, especially for someone with a degree in English and not something STEM related). I am still writing. I'm actually almost finished with a novel; I'm hoping to finish later this year. (It's not Raging Water, but a prequel. Ask if you'd like details :) ). I have a new cat, Evy. Squeaky, my first baby, died in '13. He was an old boy. Evy is a turd but I love her.

Anyway, I hope everyone is well. I'll check back here eventually.
