Merry Christmas!

I actually had this done a week before Chrissy, but am only now uploading it. Go me. Anyway~ these are my muses, Cerita (aka Cherry) on the left and Mempi on the right. Naturally, since they're muses, there's a fair bit of symbolism in their appearance, so~ here we go. Cerita is Indonesian for 'create' (therefore the 'c' is pronounced like 'ch', hence the nickname Cherry) and Mempi is Indonesian for 'dream'. They've got dark blueish purple skin, because they're my favourite colour, and also because a great deal of my stories take place at night. I love nighttime, I do. Their eyes, hair and wings are silver, again for the night thing, so they're silver like stars. Pointy ears is more because I write fantasy stuff than elves in particular. Never written anything about elves, actually. They're not actually elves, cos they've got wings and bloo skin. I dunno what they are exactly, they're muses =D;; Wings~ because I have a high percentage of winged characters and I just love drawing wings. What else? Oh yeah, there are two of them. Originally I just had Cherry, and naturally gave her a sword~ because I love swords~ and I think all my characters bar *thinks* three, including Mempi, own one. One of the swordless characters, Bastet, is actually paranoid of swords and anyone who owns one. I figure that muses should really be able to talk to all my characters, so Mempi arrived, and is swordless so he can talk to Bastet without making her nervous or anything. I'm smurt X3 And that would be all the symbolismy type stuff. No fluff on the clothes because I forgot it and figured 'meh, it's Australia, they'd get hot if they had fluff on their Chrissy clothes.' Last of all, they're CUTE! Particularly Cherry. I love~~~ how Cherry came out, she's so sweet and innocent~ **^^** *huggles the muses*

The Riders of the King's Own ~ Part Four

Still in the wilds of Kazin, still three men down, still with an (annoying, some of the bois would say) innovative General at the helm X3 So here, we introduce the remaining pikeman and blade archer, and two more swordies. Because I love swords. Have you noticed that yet? =3 Also? Anyone trying to lay claim to Kurae... you can't. Sallie's already taken him X3 As ever, Nyan rana yn ___, di nyan yn Maralu translates to 'My name is ___, and I'm a rider for the King's Own.' So much easier to say Maralu, innit? I say Own rider. Cos it's English =3

Silent Harmony ~ Rust ~ One

And now~ the story starts =D Introducing Yamin and her twin sister Nimay. They are made of cute <3 (told you there was no more first person X3)

The Riders of the King's Own ~ Part Five

Heading from Silrona back to the warm, sunny lands of home, huzzah! You can al~most see the relief on their faces X3 I still love my archers. Once again, Nyan Rana yn ___, di nyan yn Maralu is Raykinian for 'My name is ___, and I'm a rider for the King's Own.' Also, Kul is General, just cos 'may gets her bit to say here, and Yen is Prince, for Nol. You've met them all now, yay! Aren't they lovely bois? X3

You Won't Be Mine

Introducing Nolryn, crown prince of Raykin. He's a nice boi, he is X3 Title is from the song of the same name by Matchbox 20, which is just so perfect for showing Nol's feelings about having been rejected by Nimay. Every single word of that song fits it, 'cept maybe 'curb'. Raykin doesn't have curbs. But that's beside the point. If you haven't yet figured it out, this story takes place the night following the day Nol got ditched. Poor boi *snugs him*
