One One-Thousandth
For those herbalists who tend to others and themselves from the carefully-accrued bounties of the earth, such medicines are just as scrupulously crafted. And as such, there is a long-held conviction among them.
One tenet is always upheld - any tincture, no matter how diluted, will always work. Even should it be stretched to its breaking point, the potency is no less dulled, to the point of unbelievably impossible circumstances.
He supposed it was a thought particularly well-suited to him. Spitting out a bit of blood from his busted lip, the thief strolled through the inscrutable maze that was his Soul Room. None of the doors were unlocked, naturally, and he hand to hand it to his jailer - it was a perfect prison for something that so valued their freedom.
Stranded as he was, the sounds of the final Dark Game still resonated off the dank walls. It was progressing well, at least for Zorc, and at least for the moment. He gave a bitter, sharp grin.
Atem was too strong to win - even fractur

The Woman Warrior
The ground was slick and muddy with spilt blood. It curled between her toes and threatened to stain the delicately fashioned, gilt sandals.
She swallowed, the motion thick and choking, continuing her stroke as she felled another soldier. The motion was uninterrupted as she pivoted to hack at another.
Her dress, gauzy and white and tightly bound into place by a bronze-shod leather breastplate, was clinging to her skin. Blood trickled in rivulets, the quickly chilling and coagulating mess making her skin itch. Sweat plastered her hair and she cursed, yet again, not having the time to bind it with a leather cord before the sounds of riots and screaming roused her from her sleep.
Someone had laid siege to the barracks, thinking that eliminating the army whilst everyone had passed out from the festivities of the prior evening was the best way to prevent a counter-attack.
As the only woman allowed to train beside the men, she had been given a room near the entrance so as to avoid lecherous c

Yugi had let him take over for the remainder of the class, happy to escape the boredom of a quiet classroom and mildly perturbed by the request. The change-over was quick enough though - his excuse of wanting to be out of his Soul Room for a while worked better than expected.
Nobody was paying the spirit any attention. He liked it better that way, silently glad that this was the one class their friends weren’t in. It would have been rather awkward to interact with them in the sort of mood he was in.
Shifting in the wooden chair, he brought a hand to his face, resisting the urge to grimace at the pulsating sparks of pain in his eyes. It couldn’t have been from the transition from a dimly-lit room to a brightly-lit one - not like that sort of thing ever bothered him in the first place, he was a bit too dead to be truly bothered by such things - he knew that much. The only thing that could cause this pain would be the turmoil in his heart.
They had figured out his name nearly

Die Voegeln Singen
The blood splatters were nothing compared to the look in the child's eyes. Desolate, quietly foreboding. He shivered, feeling as if his very soul were being pierced by that heavy gaze.
The duplicate was still breathing - if only so faintly it could barely be seen. He was easily supported by the one staring at him so chillingly, head cradled in crook of arm.
"You have trespassed upon my heart."
Funny, it wasn't as deep as he thought it was going to be. He had been half-expecting the earth shaking tone of a god, not the low tenor of a child grown in a man's world.
Tremulously, he had the urge to bow. To bow and scrape and beg for mercy. … Not forgiveness, no. Even from here he could see just how wrong he was to be an accomplice in such bloodshed. But he steeled his nerves in the face of that judgement so fairly given to him.
"I know," He replied quietly, nodding once. This caused a flicker of surprise in the other's eyes, followed by quickly-dampened curiosity.
"Then you know you

Shadow Emissary
He could feel the tugging (tuggingholdtightsharpseams) on every molecule of his being. Lips moved, twitched into a grin at the person he was looking at, but held fast at the stitching holding them closed.
An invisible wind, one whose caresses were familiar, tugged at him. (tracingbonyribscurveofjawhauntingchuckle)
Finally, disappearing into the mist he knew this other person could not see, his lips finally broke free into a cackle. Though he could not feel, he knew his teeth had long since been formed into the needle-sharp canines he once used to fear for so long.
Last fragments wisping away were his freedom. The last glimpse he had of his terrified visitor was viewed with long-lost eyes of his hidden scrap of humanity.

She jumped off her horse, leather-clad feet hitting the stone with a soft tap, "Well, well, what do we have here? Have I missed the party?"
There was an outraged murmur from the priests. With a smirk, Bakura tossed her prize on the ground in front of her, relishing in the disbelief emanating from the others in the room. Chaos descended shortly after that, and it was with no small amount of pleasure that she cackled as she summoned Diabound, challenging each of the priests in a mocking tone dripping with faux sweetness.
In the back of her mind, the thief wondered where the pharaoh was. He was the objective, of course, and she called out at the priests, deliberately scornful. "Where is Mr King, huh? Is he too scared to face me, using all of you as shield instead?"
Before any of the priests could do more than sputter at her in shock, a deep voice shouted, ringing with authority.
Like water, the pitiful excuse for a Sacred Court parted. A witty remark died on her lips as h

The heart shall
and life comes
with assuréd exuberance.
Worry not,
sweet young one,
these tears of ours
cleanse aching fears.
Our prayers shall be
made come morn,
and fall upon
shapely ears.
breathe and calm
your trembling soul.
It is too beautiful
to be in pain,
to hold such indecisiveness
within you.
All shall come and go,
to walk the cobbled path
that has many caretakers.
Smile through your grief,
and allow your strength
to show and shine.
We are more than the sum
of our parts, no matter
how cherished each shard.
Little one,
who has grown so much,
stand tall with serenity.

Ruminations from a Nap :icontexasdreamer01:TexasDreamer01 0 0
I want you to scream
your music at me,
mesh the beat of
your drums and soul
with my heart.
Enrapture my body,
that my hips sway
and gyrate and
my voice reverberates
with the ululations
of your chorus.
Bring tears to
my eyes out of
the beauty and
emotions of these
words from your heart
and the wisdom of
your culture.
Let me see
my world come
alive with your
presence, and the
generations mingle
with their shared
joy and intrinsic vivacité,
and the exchange
of knowledge that
ensures base
survival of our peoples.
May the precious
circle never break
the transcriptions
on our hearts.

On the Road to Albuquerque
The desert is
beautiful, a
wilderness bristling
with ridges and
canyons, multi-coloured
shrubbery, lively cacti,
and medicinal trees.
These anguished-looking
crests that mar
your seemingly dry
skin, Geb...
They are love-bites
from adoring Nut,
are they not?
The furrows that we
carve cruelly onto your
arms are our poor
imitations of that
eternal love.
During the midday
heat, we are amazed
by the vibrant sparkle
of your blessed rivers,
managed by thanks-
giving Hapy.
Ever astonished are we,
when this seemingly-
barren land yields
bountiful welfare
from the smallest
of niches.
The ostensibly painful
marks from your
lover's hands are
awe-ful, and I
wish you to convey
my thanks to
the heavens.

I'm on tumblr more often now than here. DA still has a lot of bugs, and as of right now I just don't feel like playing tag with the various viruses/trojans/malware/etc on here. Stuff will still be uploaded here, but it's going to be at a slower rate now that I'm in college (which is why I've been virtually nonexistent on here).

Dunno if you yugioh guys are keeping track or not, but I do have a new series which is taking up most of my writing time - The Second Epilogue Chronicles, TSEC for short. It's a bit of a meta, and me hammering out tropes and clichés that annoy the ever-loving hell out of me. Features my OTPs, puzzle, tender, and bronze, and how most realistically they would be handled post-canon/"yamis have a body."

The ficlets aren't going to make much sense right now, until I've finished nearly all of it, because they're purposely out of order. And even if you absolutely, positively despise one of the ships, read all of it, anyway (go big or go home is really how this entire thing ought to be approached). If you like one bit because you like, say, puzzleshipping, but you can't wrap your mind around bronzeshipping - you need to read that other stuff, too, because a plot hole in one is going to be filled in another.

Poems and their general ilk will still pop up. I tend to accumulate whatever it is I write, so I can upload it in bulk - if two or three can be considered such. :D

Since I'm being overwhelmed with the amount of deviations I have to sort through in my inbox, a lot of people will be "demoted" to just nominally being followed - no new deviations/journals/etc. If I talk to you on some sort of regular basis, or I have a particular fondness for something you do that keeps afloat in my memory, you're golden.



Feel free to use any icons I've made. Most of my stories are cross-posted, and my tumblr has specific tags for them.
