WIP - prologue pt1
Tales of Amara
The forest was calm, still and quiet, that is until the crashing of something shattered the peaceful silence. A black horse broke through the thick undergrowth, clearly spooked and with the bit in its teeth. It ignored the way its rider hauled on frantically at the reins. The rider finally jerked hard enough for the frightened beast to feel it, but spooked as it already was, it screamed and reared so that it threw its rider violently to the ground and then continued its headlong flight through the woods without a second pause.
As the sound of pounding hooves faded, a thick, impenetrable silence descended as if it had engulfed any and all sound. After several minutes a groan split the silence and the man who had been riding the horse slowly sat up. Prince Aleksander Natelle pressed a hand to the back of his head and pushed himself to his feet, even though a wave of nausea washed over him and a searing pain lanced through his head, temporarily obscuring his sight. He

To Aleksander, it felt like his recovering was taking far too long. How long had he been in this place now? He resented the fact that he was still here. If Sylvana was so great a Healer why was he still here? Why hadn't she just healed him straight off and then let him leave? He was certain she'd be glad to be rid of him and he would certainly be glad to go. It must have been at least two weeks. By now Rhygoleth must be looking for him. He was free to go wherever he pleased, whenever he pleased, but if he didn't send regular missives then his grandfather, the self-styled emperor of Rhygoleth, an empire than existed only in name, would certainly start looking for him. As far as Aleksander knew, there was no one else his grandfather was interested in designating as heir. He had to leave soon. He had to get back to his place in the fleets.
This morning he found himself alone when he woke. The woman Sylvana had left before he had woken. Whether that had been deliberate on her part to avoid

We are the Children
We are not the children of the past
Though the past lives in us
Though its bitterness can not be forgotten,
We are not the children of the past.
We are the children of forgivness,
The children of Hevenu Shalom,
Children of the Phoenix
born out of its own ashes:
Bigger and stronger,
and happy to live.
We are the children of the Fire
That warmed the hearts of our parents
and saved them from freezing
in the cold nights of Auschwitz.
We are the children of Hope
The Hope that nourished our grandparents blood
and kept them from starving.
We are the children of Truth
the horrible truth, we look in it's eyes
and laugh
because we are children.
Childern of dreams
Children saved from Hell
We are the children, and all that we have:
a piece of land, and our dreams.
A handfull of earth
and our hands to build our dreams.
We are the children, and we must say it,
must shout it, for the World to know
We are here, we're alive, and we're happy.
We are the children and we urge you
Children of the World,

Hello, DeviantArt

Maybe I'll come back for a while. It's been a long, hard time the last few years, but I'm sick of how trivial Facebook is, even though it's my only contact with many of my old friends and family in real life. This, at least, is a community of people trying to do something and not just report their daily grocery lists.

  • Listening to: Leonard Cohen
  • Reading: Barbara Kingsolver
  • Watching: the sky
  • Playing: See you in court
  • Eating: carbs and fish protein, no grease
  • Drinking: grapefruit juice

Did you see the amazing sky last night? I could have walked the dog forever and looked up the whole time!

Was that the eclipse of the moon? I saw it and now wish I'd taken the trouble to get a photo of it. Or actually, that I understood my camera a little better, because it would have been hard to get, the light was so low.

I missed the eclipse. I was playing video games with your son at the time. This was a full moon night.

Egads! What an ugly old man! If I looked anything like you, I might just have to end it all!

I seem to remember being told to sign up for DA several years back, and I never got around to it. And the first Deviant I look at is you? What was I thinking... my father would probably say I wasn't...
Ronnie4Renegade Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2011
Please don't end it all! I happen to think you both are adorable. You are both amazing human beings, shut the f*@% up!

Well duh! I love you.

Thank you for watching me but can I ask what drove you to m ask such a decision?
langsam Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2010  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't remember. Probably you showed up on my visitors list and I wasn't too busy to check your page and then found something I liked, at least enough to want to come back someday and check out your gallery. I don't remember if I left you any comments or faved anything. I've been pretty busy lately.
