A Sonnet at Sunset by luckyveda A Sonnet at Sunset by luckyveda
Spring, Year 756 of the New Age
Windborne, dry grasslands overlooking Cockle Bay
----------
Story totes on the way. I've already got the song! Feel free to continue it ;) I think I'll have Reu make up a song for each herd. It'd be fun!

Still the skies and still the Mor,
Hush the South and their Gods of War,
When your breath is the breeze,
and the breeze will not blow,
Feel the power of Windborne grow.

Chained from silence we were freed,
Lost in darkness we found the seed,
With the voice of the wind,
in each stag and each doe,
Feel the power of Windborne grow.


----------
Reuel ([link]) this past spring, during a trip to cockle bay. He loves this time of year because his horns haven't grown in yet, and he looks all sleek and sexy. He likes to parade around and show off his beautiful self by running all across the island. While he's out running he also practices his bard skills, which is what this piece mostly features.

Now... info about Reuel's bard necklace! The main ring is a twisted branch that he wears around his neck like a collar. Attached are lots of makeshift "wind chimes" and flutes that Reuel either found or created. On his runs, he gathers the wind behind him and practices sending it through the different flutes and chimes to make different sounds.

Reuel's Plot Journal Looking for an arch-enemy slash bully to pick on Reuel and get him in trouble!
also...
Looking for a (male) love interest for this boy! Whaaat? Any takers?

Reuel

Likes: music, arts, food, handsome stags, adventure, exploring, running, and using his magic. Dislikes: repetition, structure, order, hierarchy, tradition, and having responsibility.

Thank you! They're a little bit over the top aren't they? Ah well, the breed standard will just have to deal with his fabulousness.

Thank you! The necklace looks so heavy on Reu's little neck though.. haha. Maybe this could count as strength training. :P

What a neat character!
He'll have to stumble across Rosie, she would get a kick out of meeting him.

Thank you! Glad you liked it. I have a lot of musical characters but I've never written any material for them. ^^ It's fun, a little different but fun.

I've had a few characters who are singers too and I've never written songs before. Maybe since Myra sings I'll write some of her songs down too. Oh gosh when these two realize the both sing they could sing together!

Thank you very much! I'm glad I got the mood down. Wish I had the patience to go futher. Sometimes I wanna do really detailed pieces but I'm so lazy, haha. I figure if I get the mood down that's what matters most. :P

Oh my god I know
After I went through art "class" every day last trimester it was awesome coming home and not getting shit on your hands, ripping the paper, coloring out of the lines(though I do that anyway in digital haha), etc.

RAINBOW BARF IS ASSTASTIC
