16 Years Ago

"But father," Lannan protested, "I want to fight!" Lannan's father gripped his son by the arm and tugged him outside of the small wooden hut. Wearing a scowl nearly as large as his moustache, he pointed at the Palace walls. They were burning.

"These wars," Lannan's father panted, "aren't wars. They're slaughters. The trolls are killing everyone. Believe me, son, we're much safer here. A true soldier knows how to pick his battles." Lannan stared at the fires, burning with such power that they forced the sky itself to turn an angry crimson. The rest of the sky lay invisible behind billowing clouds of smoke.

The sound of drumming cut through Lannan's thoughts. He and his father looked over to see eight figures on horses ride in. Lannan's eyes widened. Each horse was a majestic steed, fit more for a king than a soldier. And the way that armor gleamed in the sunset...the silver trim seemed to slither. Lannan couldn't take his eyes off of the men.

The captain brought his horse to a halt before Lannan's father. He removed his helmet. Lannan stared at the hard face in awe, gazed into the deep blue eyes, the brightest blue he'd ever seen. The sky was once that blue, or so his father said, so the blue must have gone into the captain's eyes.

"Lannan," the captain said. His voice demanded authority. Lannan felt himself possessed by a sudden urge to salute. He started to move his hand, but his father's restrained him. "How you've grown."

Lannan stared up at the captain. "Have we met before?"

The captain chuckled and diverted his gaze to Lannan's father. "How old is he?"

"Still too young."

"Hm." The captain pursed his lips. "When's his Birthday?"

"Doesn't matter."

"I don't believe you."

"Tough."

The captain sighed. He shifted slightly in the saddle, and his sheath glistened in the light. "Let's not do this, CP."

"You don't get to call me that," CP said. "Not anymore."

"ConservativePolitico then. No matter what I call you, it doesn't change the fact that you will tell me your son's age, or -"

"Twelve, sir!" Lannan chimed in. "Thirteen in three days!" CP turned to stare at his son, mouth falling into a gasp of betrayal.

The captain smiled. "What a good boy you have there. You'll make a fine addition to the army, Lannan."

"NO!" CP roared, advancing toward the captain. "You will not kill my son!" With a swift, fluid movement, the captain unsheathed his sword and had it aimed at CP.

"Of course I won't," the captain answered. "I'm no traitor. We need every solider we can get to defeat Fluffy and the troll hordes."

"You will not take my son from me!" CP bellowed. The captain turned his horse and rode back toward his men.

"We will be back in three days," he called over his shoulder, "and your son will come with us." Then he was gone, past the fence marking CP's property and riding down the dirt road with his men.

Present Day

YYW was suiting up for battle while bsh1 watched. No, battle was not a metaphor. Not this time.

"I don't understand why you have to go," bsh1 said.

"Mikal has ordered it," YYW answered.

"So?"

"So," YYW answered, adjusting his breastplate, "I'm going to make the Kingdom safe for you."

bsh1 blushed. "I should go too!"

"No!" YYW fiddled with the breastplate again. "No. I want you to stay here, where I know you'll be safe. This is only to go find kbub and Daytona. How hard can it be?"

"Tell me when you come back," bsh1 said. "Or better yet, show me." YYW smiled. bsh1 rose and walked over to him. "Here, let me help."

"Thanks," YYW said as bsh1 finished setting the breastplate in place. He turned around to look at bsh1. The two stared at each other. bsh1 felt a tear burning his eye, and he lowered his head. This was silly! YYW wasn't going out on some battlefield! He was just helping hunt down terrorists. Terrorists who had already bombed the Palace....

bsh1 ran into YYW's arms. "You'll come back, right?"

YYW kissed him and smiled. "What do you think?"
____________________________________________________

"So, Bookworm," Zaradi said. "I presume you've gotten an excellent story on the recent tragedy that befell the Palace?"

"Not really," Bookworm said, swirling her glass. "Mikal refused to be interviewed."

"Shame," Crypto commented. "The Jifpop Chronicles would have broke record sales."

Zaradi snorted. "Yeah, all two of them."

"Be nice," Bookworm frowned.

"You guys know Jifpop is under suspicion?" Crypto threw out.

Booworm looked stunned. "What? Why?"

"Because he knew about TUF so quickly," Crypto said as though it were obvious. "Top me off, would you, Zaradi?" Zaradi poured more wine into Crypto's glass. "Thanks."

"But he's a reporter," Bookworm protested. "That's his job."

Crypto shrugged. "I don't make the rules. I just follow them."

"For now," Zaradi muttered into his wineglass.

Crypto nodded sagely. "Amen to that."

Bookworm wore a bemused expression. "I'm in the company of traitors."

"Revolutionaries," Zaradi corrected.

Bookworm held up her wineglass, as if trying to examine it, but the sun outside had long set, and the candlelight was little more than a dim glow.

"Revolutionaries." Bookworm smiled. "Perhaps."

Unbeknownst to all of them, Linkish hid in a small closet, digging his fingernails into his palms. Would they ever stop talking? Why weren't they all dead yet? Linkish wasn't positive, but he estimated it to have been about a half hour. Even 2,000 ELO wasn't worth this. If he was caught...

Die already, he thought. Just die.

He pressed his ear to the door. They were still chattering! He nearly bit his tongue with anticipation. Any minute now. Any minute.

Then, praise Juggle, Linkish finally heard the sound he'd been waiting for. The sound of a body collapsing to the ground.

He smiled when he heard the sound repeat itself twice more.

The notion of you protecting me from your true love makes me absurdly happy, probably because for me it's like 1:30 in the morning but still. But thank you so much! I really appreciate that. :-)

Screw artistic freedom...(maybe that should be screw me...that might be more fun.) Anyway, your literary life vs. Endark's freedom of choice--I choose your literary life.

Maybe I wouldn't mind this...depending on how you decided to hold me off...

If you push me up against a wall and started making out with me, maybe I could give Endark a pass...in fact, in that case, I would definitely give Endark a pass. There's no way I'm breaking free from that embrace.

I'll hold him off haha. Write it however you think it best. I'm really enjoying it so far and I want to be sure that you've for full license to write my character however you like.

Maybe I wouldn't mind this...depending on how you decided to hold me off...

If you push me up against a wall and started making out with me, maybe I could give Endark a pass...in fact, in that case, I would definitely give Endark a pass. There's no way I'm breaking free from that embrace.

To your PMs, dear lovebirds. That's where your heading anyway. The PMs, then the bedroom.

Oh, don't worry...we always end up in the PMs ;)

16 Years Ago

"But father," Lannan protested, "I want to fight!" Lannan's father gripped his son by the arm and tugged him outside of the small wooden hut. Wearing a scowl nearly as large as his moustache, he pointed at the Palace walls. They were burning.

"These wars," Lannan's father panted, "aren't wars. They're slaughters. The trolls are killing everyone. Believe me, son, we're much safer here. A true soldier knows how to pick his battles." Lannan stared at the fires, burning with such power that they forced the sky itself to turn an angry crimson. The rest of the sky lay invisible behind billowing clouds of smoke.

The sound of drumming cut through Lannan's thoughts. He and his father looked over to see eight figures on horses ride in. Lannan's eyes widened. Each horse was a majestic steed, fit more for a king than a soldier. And the way that armor gleamed in the sunset...the silver trim seemed to slither. Lannan couldn't take his eyes off of the men.

The captain brought his horse to a halt before Lannan's father. He removed his helmet. Lannan stared at the hard face in awe, gazed into the deep blue eyes, the brightest blue he'd ever seen. The sky was once that blue, or so his father said, so the blue must have gone into the captain's eyes.

"Lannan," the captain said. His voice demanded authority. Lannan felt himself possessed by a sudden urge to salute. He started to move his hand, but his father's restrained him. "How you've grown."

Lannan stared up at the captain. "Have we met before?"

The captain chuckled and diverted his gaze to Lannan's father. "How old is he?"

"Still too young."

"Hm." The captain pursed his lips. "When's his Birthday?"

"Doesn't matter."

"I don't believe you."

"Tough."

The captain sighed. He shifted slightly in the saddle, and his sheath glistened in the light. "Let's not do this, CP."

"You don't get to call me that," CP said. "Not anymore."

"ConservativePolitico then. No matter what I call you, it doesn't change the fact that you will tell me your son's age, or -"

"Twelve, sir!" Lannan chimed in. "Thirteen in three days!" CP turned to stare at his son, mouth falling into a gasp of betrayal.

The captain smiled. "What a good boy you have there. You'll make a fine addition to the army, Lannan."

"NO!" CP roared, advancing toward the captain. "You will not kill my son!" With a swift, fluid movement, the captain unsheathed his sword and had it aimed at CP.

"Of course I won't," the captain answered. "I'm no traitor. We need every solider we can get to defeat Fluffy and the troll hordes."

"You will not take my son from me!" CP bellowed. The captain turned his horse and rode back toward his men.

"We will be back in three days," he called over his shoulder, "and your son will come with us." Then he was gone, past the fence marking CP's property and riding down the dirt road with his men.

Present Day

YYW was suiting up for battle while bsh1 watched. No, battle was not a metaphor. Not this time.

"I don't understand why you have to go," bsh1 said.

"Mikal has ordered it," YYW answered.

"So?"

"So," YYW answered, adjusting his breastplate, "I'm going to make the Kingdom safe for you."

bsh1 blushed. "I should go too!"

"No!" YYW fiddled with the breastplate again. "No. I want you to stay here, where I know you'll be safe. This is only to go find kbub and Daytona. How hard can it be?"

"Tell me when you come back," bsh1 said. "Or better yet, show me." YYW smiled. bsh1 rose and walked over to him. "Here, let me help."

"Thanks," YYW said as bsh1 finished setting the breastplate in place. He turned around to look at bsh1. The two stared at each other. bsh1 felt a tear burning his eye, and he lowered his head. This was silly! YYW wasn't going out on some battlefield! He was just helping hunt down terrorists. Terrorists who had already bombed the Palace....

bsh1 ran into YYW's arms. "You'll come back, right?"

YYW kissed him and smiled. "What do you think?"
____________________________________________________

"So, Bookworm," Zaradi said. "I presume you've gotten an excellent story on the recent tragedy that befell the Palace?"

"Not really," Bookworm said, swirling her glass. "Mikal refused to be interviewed."

"Shame," Crypto commented. "The Jifpop Chronicles would have broke record sales."

Zaradi snorted. "Yeah, all two of them."

"Be nice," Bookworm frowned.

"You guys know Jifpop is under suspicion?" Crypto threw out.

Booworm looked stunned. "What? Why?"

"Because he knew about TUF so quickly," Crypto said as though it were obvious. "Top me off, would you, Zaradi?" Zaradi poured more wine into Crypto's glass. "Thanks."

"But he's a reporter," Bookworm protested. "That's his job."

Crypto shrugged. "I don't make the rules. I just follow them."

"For now," Zaradi muttered into his wineglass.

Crypto nodded sagely. "Amen to that."

Bookworm wore a bemused expression. "I'm in the company of traitors."

"Revolutionaries," Zaradi corrected.

Bookworm held up her wineglass, as if trying to examine it, but the sun outside had long set, and the candlelight was little more than a dim glow.

"Revolutionaries." Bookworm smiled. "Perhaps."

Unbeknownst to all of them, Linkish hid in a small closet, digging his fingernails into his palms. Would they ever stop talking? Why weren't they all dead yet? Linkish wasn't positive, but he estimated it to have been about a half hour. Even 2,000 ELO wasn't worth this. If he was caught...

Die already, he thought. Just die.

He pressed his ear to the door. They were still chattering! He nearly bit his tongue with anticipation. Any minute now. Any minute.

Then, praise Juggle, Linkish finally heard the sound he'd been waiting for. The sound of a body collapsing to the ground.

He smiled when he heard the sound repeat itself twice more.

RIP Zaradi, Crypto & Bookworm.

Zaradi isn't dead.

Crypto is dead for sure because he's the first body that fell. ("top me off again"

Zaradi realised the drink had been poisoned and has pretended to die.

Bookworm is either dead (I bet!) or pretending with Zaradi.

*takes a bow*

*blushes*

I knew something was off. Zaradi can't die yet because he's a revolutionary. I don't know much about Crypto's character because he isn't mentioned a lot.
However, I don't think it matters that Bookworm is dead. She may be a reporter so that might help Zaradi but I doubt that matters much.

Yin - "female/passive/negative" [1]. It can also be defined as "the female principle of the universe that is considered dark and passive and is associated with earth." [2]

So, just to clarify, you think of me as dark and negative?

Wasn't it Mikaru and/or somebody who did some yin/yang thing a while back?

I'd be interested in reading that...
