Echoes - Episode 7: In the Forest of Moonlight
Episode 7: In the Forest of Moonlight
In the meantime while they waited for Alistair to wake up, Parker, Snow, Guy and Artemis had done their parts to get ready for the trip to Boonsboro. Well, Artemis mostly complained about them wanting to "go camping," as he put it, until Parker went off on him, pointing out the obvious: the sun would set well before they arrived at the remnants of the city, and they would need all the rest they could get. Since waiting till morning wasn't an option, camping was the way to go. The Warden simply didn't argue after that.
Guy gathered scraps from the area and built a cart he could tow behind him in cheetah form. It would lighten the load for them in general, and allow them to carry anyone who was injured, if it came to that. He tried to convince Snow to let him dismantle her motorcycle for a motor to run it, instead of pulling it himself. Her response: a gun pointed at his head and narrowed eyes, along with the warning, "Try it. See what happens

No, he's definitely telling the truth.
Nathan rose from his seat. It wasn't fair, what he'd put Gabriel through, especially when he knew in his gut that it wasn't his fault. Alton's suspicions or not, his guardian angel just wasn't the manipulative type, and the writer moved to the seat beside him again, touching his shoulder.
"I believe you," Nathan said again. "And I'm sorry for all that. Personally, I think it's Raphael behind this."
"Probably," Gabriel agreed quietly, wiping his eyes. "But it's still true that Lumiel's fears are reasonable. Though I'm seldom portrayed in direct conflict with him, it's still generally believed that he is my enemy. The same with Raphael. Michael is the only one who is constantly portrayed fighting Lucifer." He drew a deep breath and turned to his charge. "Perhaps we should both approach him next, just to be sure. Belief aside, Micah still loves Alton, and if he was the one to set Superbia on her schemes, then he will feel

Episode 6: Victimize
No one said a word until they heard the door slam and the music coming through the floorboards above them. Snow was especially quiet, torn between offering concern for his injuries and remaining cautious. Even once Alistair had vanished upstairs, she still turned to the others -- Zacharriah in particular -- with a worried glance, chewing on her lip. "I think I see now why you wanted us to watch him. He really is a sociopath, isn't he?" She looked back towards the stairs. "I don't know how to react to him now..."
"What made you think he was joking in the first place?" Parker asked her, his eyebrow raised. Snow shot him a glare.
"Have you ever seen him with your Sight?" she asked incredulously in return. The other wizard crossed his arms and nodded emphatically.
"Damn right I have! And it doesn't bother me."
"And you still trust him?"
Parker scowled. "I said it before, and I'll say it again: Alistair has never steered me wrong. He's my friend, an
LatreuophobiaI wash off sick-sweet orange lipstick in front of a mirror as dusty as gothic romances. It tastes like oblivion, that is to say, like nothing my tongue can detect.
The door opens with a creak no private restroom could emulate. Some chick with blue bobbed hair and smeared eyeliner. I looked like that once. Ten years ago.
Getting the beer out of my hair is harder. Some men just can't take it when I'd rather they not kiss my feet or call me an angel or-
“Dayum girl, you look like a goddess.”
I gulp, taste of acid.
Vanguard, Chapter 1: DuncanDuncan's Journal: Day 1288
I consider myself a good man. I respect women, elders, my equals, and the dead. I say a morning prayer, and an evening one. Hell, I even thank the gods for a meal, instead of immediately chowing down in the voracious manner as the other soldiers here do. By all logical means, I should be in paradise. No really, not just because I'm a good man, but also because I should be dead by now. So I ask myself: why, oh gods up there, have I ended up in hell?
1288 days. 1288 days of my life have been spent in this misery, and I'm beginning to lose faith in the glory I was promised. Some of the rookies still live in their ignorant bliss, but I've lived long enough to realize that there's not much glory to find here. “Sing the songs of glory and march into battle—-join The Crusade today!”. Such were the words of the posters The Crusade has spread all over The Mortal Realm. Gullible fools practically stand in line for these songs of glory that th
