Faetaera: Trouble In Paradise

Larell Lac Taal’s ankle winglets tingled.  The air of the Court Chamber fluctuated with uneasy echoes. Whispers of past conferences clung to the curves of the vaulted arches.  Larell’s sensitive winglets twitched at the almost imperceptible vibration the room emitted as it ingested the underlying tension. Today the disquiet of the Senex seemed to overwhelm the chamber’s soothing capabilities.   Perhaps my own concerns are shaping my perceptions.   He scrutinised each of the Senex members in turn: their Royal Highnesses like carved stone; Queen Aurelia, alabaster but for her eyes, warm as amber, Prince Elumin's colouring more that of green marble, Brairton’s cat eyes flashing in Larell’s direction, whiskers twitching. He occupied his chair with languid ease leaning over towards Mirasel beside him.   But, she furled her delicately arched wings away from Brairton. Mmmm, she mistrusts him. Larell's attention was drawn to Emuelle and Rhil as they arrived in a shimmer.   Faci

Angelus III

Dalili I saw him. He was sat with the child in a chair. I told myself what he was doing was wrong and I should go in and try to take the child from him. Then as I got closer, I saw he was asleep. His hand lay on the child, touching his head. I saw the love in the graceful nature of his hand. I looked at the brightness from him and saw this beaming into the child. He open his eyes. They were golden, with small bright flecks that saw the universe. He looked at me with a long gaze. He sighed and then he stood and laid the child in his bed. Then he was gone. I thought of him. This tall, incredibly strong man. There were muscles on him I had never seen before. And then his clothes. I knew them to be clothes people never worn today. His shoes were sandals, like the sandals worn by gladiators. No trousers, only a gladiator skirt. He wore no shirt. Only his arm were covered by light mail, up to the elbow, manicae. I would someday know that it was incredible soft. That was the first time

Take 12: The Classics Ok, so three of these have Audrey Hepburn in them. I like her. The four next, which are books I've read, are also great.

101 Must See Films

Take 11: Action! I like action films. I like them because I should not like them. They are violent and contain lots of fighting. I'm South African, so fierceness doesn't frighten me. Enter the Dragon - this is a film about martial arts. To my mind, it is the best film ever made. Bruce Lee is famous for his depection of Lee. He is involved in an undercover intelligence officer. Agent 47 - this is a violent film. Don't watch it if you are afraid of violence. Timothy Olyphant plays Hitman 47. He is not afraid of anyone. Hitman: Agent 47 - agent 47 has been hired to kill. He joins a young woman who is searching for her father. Jason Bourne - this is the final film in the Jason Bourne series. Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) comes out of hiding. He finds out the truth about his past. The Bone Collector - Lincoln (Denzel Washington), and ex-detective who is quadriplegic, comes in to solve the mystery of a serial killer. He is helped by Amelia (Angelina Jolie). Lockout -
