Anywhere But Here

Anywhere But Here

 

This place.

This godforsaken town.

Outsiders don’t get it. They never will. Everyone wants to visit but nobody wants to stay. And while it seems lovely and idyllic on the outside, the truth is that there’s little to offer those of us who weren’t born with a silver spoon in our mouths. It’s a lifelong sentence of drudgery and mediocrity. The rich drink their champagne and party while the blue collar families slowly drown. Efforts to revive the city have done little to boost the economy and so we are left waiting, wanting more. Wishing, for the wind to sweep us away to anywhere but here…

(Please note that this RP isn’t associated with the sim. It was just a nice place to take my photograph)

Guardian

Guardian

I was chosen from a young age and set on the patch of a warrior. Some become healers, others priests, but, I, I am a guardian. One of only twenty chosen from among our vast people.

Guardians are always watching, waiting, always vigilant. Tasked with protecting our most sacred place – the temple our ancestors built to the gods.

And so I will remain, until I am relieved of my duties due to age or death. This is my calling. This is my life.

Dusk Falling

Another hour, perhaps less, she mused, her gaze falling to the town below as the sun began to sink below the horizon.

Dusk (2)

It had been her evening routine for over a century now, watching the sun set and counting down the minutes until she went out to feed.The freedom to meld into the shadows of darkness as she searched for food, with no crowds, no witnesses, and best of all no sunlight hurting her sensitive eyes. There would be the drunks stumbling out of the local bar, the stragglers walking home alone at night. No kills of course, for it would be too dangerous to leave a body. A taste here, a taste there. Taking only enough to wet her appetite before moving on to another. And when daylight returned and the humans awoke, none would be the wiser. They would continue on with their lives, simply thinking her a strange and wealthy recluse.

Dusk (1)

Just a bit longer, she told herself.

Failure to Launch

“How in the Seven Seas do you get this thing to go?!”

Trying to smother her laughter, she called back down. “You just pull on the reins and point it in the direction you want to go.”

A frustrated sigh left her lips, “This is ridiculous! Why can’t we just swim to where we want to go? We have perfectly good fins and there’s really no need for these fish.”

“Oh but this is so much more FUN!” Laughing at her friends frustration she called back, “If I can figure this out, you certianly can!”

“He seems much more interested in doing his own thing as opposed to going where I would like.”

Perhaps they would have to save their adventure for another day….

(MOAR FANTASY PICTURES! And bc I just learned that Fantasy Gatcha Carnival is open now, you’ll be overrun with my fantasy posts. Sorry for that in advance.)

Anyone who has played or is familiar with FFXIV will understand the title of my post. As your character moves through the storyline you come to learn that you are chosen and blessed by the Crystal i.e Mother Hydalelyn. I’ve been flopping back and forth between SL and FF a lot so a crossover post between my two “MMO worlds” seemed appropriate and the awesome crystal poses from We ❤ RP was the perfect element to tie the two together. (Yeah okay I’m a huge nerd lol.)
