[color=rgb(0,0,128);][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]You are walking through the desolate streets of an abandoned city once glorious and thriving, once frivolous with the hustle and bustle of its inhabitants. You were sent here by an unknown, told to come here as a way to pass the time. They promised that your time here would be well spent.[/color][/font]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,128);][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]The cold pavement, blackening skies, and light rainstorm makes you wish for the comforts of a warm home, but somehow you know that there is no hope of finding such a place here. But just as you think this, you see a silhouette standing by one of the empty buildings here. You cannot see them very clearly, but you do see their hand beckoning you to come towards them. You agree in hopes that they will provide you with care.[/color][/font]

 

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"][color=rgb(0,0,128);]When you meet with them, you see that they are black and grey like the city. They open a door for you, and this doorway leads you down a long, winding hallway. You think it will never end, but finally you reach another black door. When the being opens the door for you, you are nothing but amazed.[/color][/font]

 

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"][color=rgb(0,0,128);]You gawk at the world of beauty and color before you, and soak in the warmth of the brightly lit room. You are left speechless by the crystal chandelier hanging high above you, and are astonished by the delicate features of every object. Everything in the room is made of crystal: Crystal vases stand tall in the corners of the room, a warm fireplace at either end of the wide area, crystal tables and chairs in corners, pictures everywhere – you wonder if this is an illusion.[/color][/font]

 

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"][color=rgb(0,0,128);]Your hostess is sitting by one of the fireplaces, but before you can step towards her, she rises. She is tall and thin, the picture of elegance. Her armor is deep purple and silver, traces of scarlet intertwined with the royal purple, and her mask, a Kanohi Huna, is all purple. Her emerald green eyes enchant you and draw you in, and her welcoming smile makes you secure in the knowledge that you have found a resting place.[/color][/font]

 

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"][color=rgb(0,0,128);]She leads you to sit by the fire, and then showcases to you rows of bookshelves – the shelves are dusty, while the books seem unused. She smiles at you once more, and the dancing green of her eyes tells you to do nothing but read to your heart’s content.[/color][/font]

[color=rgb(0,0,128);][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]I recall having an older library, although due to my procrastinating nature, I neglected to update it over time, so I opted to create a newer, revamped version. Since I’m probably going to become more and more inactive over time, I wanted to post the newer library of my works with hopes that others will view my collection of stories. Unfortunately, I’ve yet to apply links and URLs to the majority of the stories listed here.[/color][/font]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,128);][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]That’s where you come in: I need help with links for stories, and if you are willing to help me and possibly find old links to my stories, please PM them to me and I will be very, very thankful for your kindness. Although I will not have any form of reward for you, I might be able to do something for you. If you have any story, piece of art, MOC – anything – I will be glad to review it for you in an attempt to reward you. Thank you.[/color][/font]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,128);][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]To move on, I need to list some of my inspirations. I owe almost all of my ability to write whatsoever to Lady Kopaka. Her stories made me really, really appreciate writing, and made me want to write like her. Although I definitely can’t say that I can write like her at all, I still can write, and from what people have told me, I can write well (though, honestly, I don’t think that theory holds much water).[/color][/font]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,128);][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]When I started writing, I didn’t have anybody motivating me or encouraging me to write more. The only person that ever told me to write more was me, because I knew I could improve.[/color][/font]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,128);][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Over time, I rallied no support from anyone, until I finally gained some more friends here. Out of all these, there are three that I feel are my biggest inspirations, if not for their own talent but for their friendship. My best friend, Taka Nuvia, has always been around for me to talk to, and although not a very big writer herself, she is still my best friend and I have always wanted to emulate her artistic talent and overall friendliness (Let’s face it, I don’t tend to be the friendliest person).[/color][/font]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,128);][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]The second person is one that I don’t talk to that often, but I always felt support from him. I must say that one of my biggest inspirations and motivators has to be Velox. For his support I thank him, although I don’t think I can possibly give him anything in return that could be better than what he has done for me.[/color][/font]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,128);][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]The third is Eponine, or Aderia. She is like a sister to me, as we tend to share the common interests of craziness, writing, kittens, and many other things. She’s helped me through tough scenarios, and I’ve always thought she was one of the best writers on the site, although sometimes underrated.[/color][/font]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,128);][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]I also owe my inspiration and writing capabilities to most of my friends here, including Zarayna, Ezorov, Inferna Firesword, and I hate to admit that there are many, many others that I have forgotten that should belong here. All these people I thank for their kindness and insanity.[/color][/font]

 

[color=rgb(0,0,128);][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]I would go on, but I think it would turn into pathetic ramblings as this is already. If you took the time to read this, thank you, and I hope you enjoy my collection of stories.[/color][/font]

On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground
And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived
 
On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground
Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight
 
I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained
And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you
 
Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away
And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone
 
Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey
 
I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away
 
slipped away...

Bringing up your library again is an awesome move. Everyone who gets on here, read that stuff. Peach is too young to be writing at that high of a level, but she does it anyway. =)

Thanks, Grant. =) I don't think I'm that good of a writer, but it is kind of you to say so. I do hope people will view the stories listed here, though, although I hope more that I can get some volunteers to help me with these links. Thanks again for the comment. =]
