The Captain’s Mission

The sleigh raced through the forest, snow kicked up by the reindeer blinding it’s passengers.  Hally gripped the rails tightly as another tree was dodged. She glanced at the armored back of the driver who was standing on bent legs urging the beasts on.  For a woman who dwells in the wild, this reckless race... Continue Reading →

Light yellowed by dirty glass, Dust motes glinting in a fading dawn. Empty room, occupied by one, Hollow as the occupant. Silence rings through the halls, Marred by cats and machinery beneath. There exists a quandary; A need for a reason to rise. Rolling up into activity, Leaving plenty of time to cook. Yet, where... Continue Reading →

There is little to be said, Given that she is a princess. Her perfectionis for all to witness, It is exhibited Without being stoic or staid. All adore her presentation, The little details mean little to admirers. Her radiance often glitters, Though reality rarely outshines an imitation. Though she rarely is one to take chances,...
