Cities Of The Fallen TEASERIt's the simple pleasures in life, the little things that get you through, like the fact of seeing the sun through the clouds after a long anticipated storm. Or drinking rainwater right out of the sky as it falls and savoring the refreshing feeling it leaves on your skin. Even the droning sounds of the beasts and monsters that now enthrall the world can be comforting from behind thickly reinforced walls. It beats the silence that leaves you nothing but the sound of your memories to keep you company, left in the corners of your mind that chose the most inconvenient time to rear the heads. The only advice to give anyone during this age is to enjoy the simple pleasures. When you feel like you've got nothing to live for anymore and the only thing that keeps you driving forward and keeps you moving is a fleeting hope that disappears as soon as the sun sets, you have to stay sane, because sometimes the monsters aren't the most dangerous things in the world.
Mediator, Oh MediatorI've seen hearts broken, lives shattered,
People torn apart as if they never mattered.
I've been stuck in the middle for so very long,
And I've heard each one of you sing your song.
Your songs of heartache and your songs of betrayal.
I've seen your hate and your destruction burning with out fail.
Angel of Flaws, Demon of Perfections.
Beasts of grudges carry your own infections.
I've seen them heal and I've seen them hurt,
I've watched them all wipe their tears with my shirt.
"Mediator, Mediator! Will you play our game?"
Day after day they call out my name.
I reply with a sounding voice,
"I'll support you all, no matter your choice."
Though I grow tired and though I grow weak.
I'll try to be there, wiping the tears from your cheek.
I've sung your songs too, I've felt similar pain,
But I've always tried to let it wash out with the rain.
I've been there, done that,
Come back around and bought the hat.
So now I say in a slated voice
"I still support you, no matter your choice."
And now I s
Dear ShockwaveThe mirror was a cruel liar. It showed the bright, happy, green eyes and the perfectly believable smile of Rylee Datsune. Showing his pearly whites to the reflection, he sighed and let the weight that he carried become visible as he sagged his shoulders and leaned onto to the sink. He clenched his eyes shut and thought back to the day he met Shockwave. It was such a strange day.
Rylee had been walking through the forest, trying to find a way out, when he ran into a pretty nasty tribe of sun worshiping chao, who quickly over powered him and had him tied to a stick, slow roasting over an open flame. That's when Shockwave, had heard his screaming and come by to free him. They were best friends from that day forward.
The memory made him smile. He wished he could go back several decades. Before they fell in love with different people. They used to go out on the town and burn random places down just for the fun of it, They used to go and be assholes to random
The Fall of Hilo-AT"Tormund! What's going on?" Lady Hera asked franticly, clutching her three children against her chest.
Hannah and Jadelyn were sobbing loudly while Justin watched quietly, eyes wide, tears slowly rolling down his cheeks. The family was huddled together in a corner of their large bedroom, Tormund standing in front of his beloved wife with a sword brandished. He would guard them with his dying breath if it came to that.
"The sentinels are evacuating the castle, Hera." He responded quickly, shifting his foot back and hunching lower, keeping his sword aimed at the door.
Flinching when one of the guards burst in, he lunged towards the unsuspecting man, then quickly stopped himself.
That's when it happened. The moment of Hannah's life that she would never be able to forget.
An explosion rocked the castle to the core, a chorus of terrifying death screams following.
Hera screamed and held her children tighter as they began to cough from the wracking blow of their sobs.
"My lord!" The startled
