Guilt and Regret

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Rachel Lawlor

This is just a sketch, so it's kind of iffy in drawing quality. A man with the incarnations Guilt and Regret. Inspired by the Sentenced song 'Guilt and Regret,' specifically:Each morning like this they come, univited Pale as ghosts, reeking of compost Yet most I abhor their bloodshot eyes My brothers they ask me: Do you recall anything from yester-night, no? They laught at me and go: Nothing at all? Well, it must been an evening of joy My brothers they tease me: Do you remember anything from yester-night, no? They laught at me and go: O sure you do, we buried our little sister HopeYes, the gravestone says Hope.

Protecting Her Young

A set of three haiku. A gold dragon must protect her babies from a silver dragon who's come to devour them. I don't mention that bit in the haiku, but now I'm thinking about adding it in.

Yet another haiku-format thingy... I do too much of those.This was written as part of an exercise I started at the Elfwood forums to help writers and artists keep their skills sharp and break through blocks. It hasn't caught on yet, but then again, the forums aren't very populated. In any case, you can find that thread and the premise of this exercise here.Since the list has changed since I last rolled, this was written with this image and the word 'dragon' for inspiration. You can probably tell I wasn't being very creative at the moment of writing, given the inspirations, but oh well.
