Fantasy Short Stories - Aspirations
    The city was bustling. Talking and shouting filled the air in the vast elvish metropolis of Shèng Chéng. It was a hub of conversation and trade and politics. The people chattered about the day's news; the season's harvest of vegetable and grain, news from adventurers trekking to the eastern mountains, the clergy's use of magic and their practices, the high price of Shamrock Weed from the Halfling land, the rough play the children get up to after their school, the slowing acceptance of Wood Elves and Dark Elves into natural society. Shèng Chéng was alive with talk. It was beset by a large stone wall encasing the residents and protecting everything therein. Here in this great capital of the Eldars, overlooking the snow capped mountains in the east sits the royal castle, a great whitestone structure towering over the rest of Shèng Chéng. This was the Wěidà de Fángzi, the residence of the Elfinqueen and the royal family, a long gen

    The night before Christmas was cold, snowy and overcast. The whiteness of the snow melded with the white exterior of the house, a quaint double story house. The lights shone dimly through the frost encrusted windows. Slowly each of the lights turned off, one by one. The house was falling asleep. Inside the home was subtlety decorated for the holiday; a few Christmas lights here and there, tinsel wrapped around the handrail of the stairs, and a small Christmas tree in the nook of the lounge, complete with golden fairy lights and baubles to match. They too were switched off over time. At the light switch a man sighed and turned away. Having brought darkness to the home he preceded upstairs to rest before the big day. The man slowly walked inside, trying not to sti

At Narita Airport everyone was sitting down, waiting. Usagi was at the end of the passengers lounge, she slept on Mamoru's shoulder while he was reading a book about Australia. Beside him Chibiusa was teaching Luna English, Luna never learned how to speak English before even though the rest of the family can all speak it fluently. "O mizu o itadaite mo īdesu ka?" Luna said.
"Okay." Chibiusa thought for a moment. "May I have some water? You try it."
Luna took a longer time to work out the phonics of the words. "Mei ai havu sam wota?"
"Hm." Chibiusa replied. "You still need to work on how you sound out words."
"Eh?" Luna asked.
"Oh! Anata wa mada anata no fonikkusu ni torikumu hitsuyō ga arimasu." Chibiusa repeated herself in Japanese.
"Ah, okai!" Luna gave Chibiusa a thumbsu

Along a dark hallway the professor walked with vigor towards the light at the end. A rattling could be heard every time he took a step forward, the drug was prepared. He reached the light and passed through the open doorway to find General Tsajei reviewing the most recent data from the spy drone. The professor stopped just passed the door to observe the General hunched over, resting over a crystalline console, watching the information pour over the screen close up. "General," the professor called out. "You wanted to see me."
Without so much as turning to look at him Tsajei replied. "I've been told by the Council that you have manufactured our drug." Immediately the professor opened his grey laboratory coat and extracted a glass bottle fill of transparent yellow pills.
Lifting the bottle in front of his face the professor shook the bottle and explained the drug. "AN46I-5/212. This is a rather unique formula using trisulfu

It was the night before Usagi's trip around the world, the tickets were bought and everyone was packed and ready to go. Suitcases lined the backside of the couch by the front door, each with their own name tags - Usagi Tsukino-Chiba, Mamoru Chiba and Luna Tsukino. The couple were already upstairs and sleeping in bed, Luna was about to go to bed herself. She entered the guest bedroom in her pyjamas late at night after a day of booking, packing, printing and organizing everything since Chibiusa, Nari and Chiyo are all joining them. Exhausted, Luna closed the door behind her and slowly walked up to and climbed into her bed. She let out a big sigh and stretched herself for a moment in bed before plugging her phone into the charger and relaxing herself, switching off the desk lamp beside her and drifting off to sleep. Her mind emptied; the energy of the day was spent on the computer and in the kitchen, tending to Usagi's needs

Setsuna's house was abuzz in activity, she and her daughter were quickly cleaning the house as they were expecting visitors. Chiyo was kneeling down, dusting the windows while Setsuna finished the last of the vacuuming. "Puruto!" She shouted over the machine. "Can you dust the tables now?"
"Just a sec!" Chiyo was just finishing off her window, wiping in down one last time. "Okay mother." She got up and headed over to the coffee table in the lounge room. Chiyo was dressed for home, a simple black t-shirt and track pants - comfort clothes for lounging about. Chiyo was unlike any other of the school girls in Juuban Municipal High School, she was a goth chick. Chiyo's appearance reflected this; she normally wears makeup like other girls, heavy eyeliner, black fingernails and a deep maroon lipstick, but she also applies a very small amount of rice powder on her cheeks - the makeup Geisha use to color their fac

With the television blaring in the background Setsuna was typing furiously on her computer, the keys clanking loudly. Behind her the television was showing a documentary, an English documentary dubbed in Japanese - the Planets. As Setsuna was working on her thesis in Physics she was very much addicted to watching this documentary, in this case she was just about complete and the show was starting. She could hear the music beginning to swell and the narrator began his speech. "1977-Nen 8 tsuki, boijā to yoba reru 2-ki no uchūsen ga shinji rarenai hodo no tabi o hajimemashita." Setsuna frantically typed her closing paragraph as quickly as she could so she could focus all of her attention to the show.

    In a very ordinary two story house a woman was polishing the coffee table, dusting the glass. She was expecting company today, an old friend was visiting and she wanted the place to look spotless. She was by herself, her husband has been away for a long time and was not expected for another week. As she was cleaning she hummed a melody, a brief tune she heard somewhere some time ago. "Done!" She stood up and wiped the sweat off her brow. "Phew!" She sighed, then she looked around, looking at the state of the house. The lounge room was perfect, the table is clean, the rug vacuumed and the television polished. The dining room was spotless, the table covered with a pink tablecloth and a vase of fresh daisies from the garden. The hallway was free of clutter and the kitchen was pristine, the benches cleaned and everything was stowed away. The woman sighed again. "Okay, I'm done." She undid the cloth headband and let down her fringe, golden str

Two cycles have passed in the Negaverse and inside the scientific building General Tsajei was inside a darkened room with a scientist, they were both observing another Nitrogen test on another alien, this time he was a free citizen of the Negaverse - a volunteer who was prepared to die for the greater good of the empire. Once again gas seeped through the invisible vents and unlike the slaves and aliens before him he was calm and ready. The gas continued to flood the room although this time, unlike any of the other test subjects there wasn't an immediate reaction; the man seemed unaffected by the gas. "Hm." Tsajei grunted, he saw for the first time the marvels of biological manipulation and smirked. "Perhaps there is a use for science in war." He heckled. The professor took no notice of the General's barb, focusing on the test subject and his reactions. The citizen was still sitting on his seat, thinking to himself he may b

The sun was setting at the Hikawa Shrine and everyone from Makoto's house drove down to visit Rei at the shrine, although she wasn't at all pleased with what they were planning. "What do you mean 'you want to make this place a training ground?!'"
"Look Rei." Usagi explained "We're going to need somewhere for the new scouts to train, so I thought the shrine was the perfect place to train up and teach them."
"Well yeah I don't mind that, but how are we going to fit everyone in here?"
"What do you mean?" Chibiusa asked
"Well, with all of the old Sailor Scouts - that's ten, add the new Sailor Scouts - another eight, plus two Tuxedo Masks - that's another two. So that's-" Rei took a moment to add up. "AH! Twenty people! I haven't had so many people in a long time!"

Okay.
So the past eight months since I returned to dA has actually been a very informative period; the internet is so much more different than I every really expected, very nearly all of my friends have gone which isn't that much of a surprise, being seen takes so much effort that anyone with a weak will and a small circle of friends might end up leaving dA - that's a huge thing I want people to take away here - and finally that finding the right people really change the future. From the time that I restarted in April I genuinely thought I'd end up leaving dA for good because I was getting nothing at all, but now I have a very supportive group of new friends who encourage me a great deal. I just want to take a moment to thank these people here; Arasteia is a great artist who does a lot of creepy pieces, I'm not a fan of the darker side but her art is extraordinary and she is a great person to talk to. She made a series of journals about mental health as well as a ripping good read artists who are finding trouble breaking into the site. You know what, here's the link to it! It's seriously worth the read. sylessae is another great artist who is doing a project that kinda ballooned into this massive artist movement. If you're not aware of Starcall it's a wonderful initiative where artists can collaborate to create artworks freely for artist that are otherwise unable to pay for commissions. It's a great idea and definitely worth backing, go to sylessae's profile page for more information and how to apply a request or to become an artist for Starcall, tell her Chris sent you. ^_^ Bugger it! Watch Syl while you're at it! DarkAngelsRhapsody is one of my oldest friends on dA, she was here with me back in the heyday of dA in 2006 and 2007 and she remains to be one of my best friends here, definitely up there with Arasteia and sylessae. She does fantastic 3D landscapes and the occasional writing. She tells me she's read all me work this whole time, I don't believe her but I love the compliment. xD
Lastly I want to shout out two artists in particular, Lady-Raven16 and Chaolamity . Both of them did something for me that I never really ever had happen before, they both created fanarts of my original characters. I know them from sylessae's Discord server but these weren't Starcall requests so much as they were interested in making piece of my characters. >///< I've never been so flattered before. Lady-Raven16 did my personal favorite OC because she was the most unique idea I ever came up with; Chiyo Akemi who is the Millennial Sailor Pluto from my fanfiction, and Chaolamity did a really great job in recreating Lily from Forbidden Love.
I hope the new year will bring more good fortune and more friendly people to meet and talk with. I won't deny that I'd love more fanart by anyone willing to make any. But I also want to tell you that I'm also hyping over a new project to take one after Forbidden Love is over, I'm creating character profiles for a high fantasy epic I kinda teased a while ago but decided to take another direction. I intend to start it this year so if you like a unique high fantasy story with lots of colourful characters and unique ideas watch this space. :3
See you guys later, also LOOK AT THE AWESOME FANARTS PEOPLE DID FOR ME! DDDD:

Well well well, It's been a very, very, VERY long time since I've come back here.

I first entered deviantArt about ten years ago when I was in high school. As you can see back then I was very much into fractal art, especially when it is used to express music. Since then I spent one truly wonderful year here, discovering great art, meeting fantastic people and talent, and slowly growing my confidence in both my work and my sociability, of which back then and as I do to a lesser extent now suffer from a terrible shyness. But as I left high school and work became an all-consuming part of my life both my creativity and interest in dA had died out.
Back then I felt it would be a special part of me that would break and that the reality of where I was in the real world would compel me to lose myself. The truly sad thing is that that's exactly what happened; as time went on I became less than my creative and colourful self.
However, since last year I've had a reawakening in my creativity and felt that sooner or later I'd return to deviantArt, so here I am, ready to once again take perhaps a new plunge into this great community.

In my previous life here on dA I was mostly a fractal artist and dabbled into other areas like fiction writing and albeit faltering attempts at manga art - one of my key deficiencies IS, I still have this problem, a complete lack of ability to draw a face or indeed a body in any direction apart from forward facing, this is something I MUST be able to fix.
Today it is entirely my intention to shore up my manga artistry as well as produce some of my ideas for fictions in the fantasy and science-fiction genres, and with new music from my favorite musicians I may yet produce more fractal art, even though I have not made any new works so I more or less left dA.

    The city was bustling. Talking and shouting filled the air in the vast elvish metropolis of Shèng Chéng. It was a hub of conversation and trade and politics. The people chattered about the day's news; the season's harvest of vegetable and grain, news from adventurers trekking to the eastern mountains, the clergy's use of magic and their practices, the high price of Shamrock Weed from the Halfling land, the rough play the children get up to after their school, the slowing acceptance of Wood Elves and Dark Elves into natural society. Shèng Chéng was alive with talk. It was beset by a large stone wall encasing the residents and protecting everything therein. Here in this great capital of the Eldars, overlooking the snow capped mountains in the east sits the royal castle, a great whitestone structure towering over the rest of Shèng Chéng. This was the Wěidà de Fángzi, the residence of the Elfinqueen and the royal family, a long generation of regal men and women call it their home. Outside the castle door vendors were selling their goods to anyone of standing and business with the Elfinqueen. An elf woman appeared in a rather large purple robe and very plain hood resting behind her head. Her pale skin and striking features were instantly recognizable, but as is the modesty of the High Elves no one drew any attention to the Queen. She walked towards the castle door via the vendors. Like shrieking nagas waiting to strike they all tried to earn their worth. "Lovely lady," a man said "I have treasured scents from all the corners of the earth." The woman passed by and shooed him away.
The second vendor, a Dwarf man tried his luck. "Ma'am, exotic treasures from the Dogedom. Shining gold trinkets and beautiful jewels."
This time the woman stopped to observe the jewelry. The vendor had a great mass of treasure; rings, amulets, pendants, necklaces - all manner of decorative metalwork was available. The stall glittered and sparkled in shining gold. She pointed at one and asked "How much for this one?"
"Ah!" the Dwarf exclaimed. "A lovely piece of fingerwear my dear." He took the ring she wanted and held it to her. "A cut piece of genuine Life Mana, this ring can provide a blessing enchantment freely to whomever wears it. A very valu-"
"I'm not interested in that." she interrupted "I'm interested in the price." She towered over the man, he became terribly frightened by her stature and began to sweat like a boar roasting over a fire.
He stroked his bushy red beard and replied "Ehehe, the price. Normally it is 200 gold pieces, but for a lovely lady such as yourself you can have this for 175."
"Do not appeal to my vanity. We Eldars do not believe in such a thing." She reached her hand over the vendor's wooden counter. "I like to examine the ring please."
"But of course." the Dwarf stretched up to reach the Queen's hand and passed to her the ring, confident that she was not going to steal it. She brought the ring up close to her and studied its features. It was a very basic ring; a gold band with the charged jewel in its center, miniature flashes of light discharged inside the circular yellow gem, it flickered the radiance of the sunlight and the hues of the crystal. That was it, no engraving, no fine detail, no latent magic she could detect; nothing.
"You know this is Xiao Jinglíng, home of the original magic wielders." the Queen began to explain. "We have perfected the art of using Life Mana for centuries, millennia even. Why on this earth do you think you can sell a simply magic ring like this for such a high price?"
"Ehehehehe." he could not think to do anything except laugh nervously. "My dear, it is because of the magic that the price is so high." His attempt to sell the ring at an exorbitant price was falling apart.
"Except this is a simple blessing." She then placed the ring onto the counter and while holding it by her chest she pulled down the sleeve of her left arm to reveal a number of rings on her hand. "This one here-" she pointed to her fourth finger wearing a silver ring with a different Mana crystal jewel, looking gold in colour. "has so much power in it it can ward off unholy curses and protects me from the undead. It is called 'Xié'ède Bǎohùzhě', the Unholy Protector. It cost less than 300 gold." she then pointed to the ring on the counter. "That ring there is substantially less powerful than Xié'ède Bǎohùzhě." he sweated through his brown tunic, he stammered for a while before she continued. "The fact is you are trying to cheat me out of my money. No one deserves to be robbed," she paused to lean over the counter and stare directly down above the poor soul. "Not even the Elfinqueen!" She sighed exasperatedly and left the merchant to continue into the castle.
The dwarf was left standing there thinking to himself the Elfinqueen? Why'd she mention her? The merchant never noticed her pale golden hair, the two golden earrings pierced on the side of her left ear, the necklace with a Jīn Bǎoshí gem. All the affectations and placings of Elfinqueen Tiáojie Rén.

    The queen walked up to the castle, a massive wooden door rose above the open stone staircase, guards on each side of the door protected the entry point. As she approached the door the guards noticed her earrings and knocked on the door, he informed the guards behind the door that the Elfinqueen wished to enter. The guards were heavily armored pikemen; the polished steel breastplates gleamed in the sunlight. The tall men were fully outfitted, a complete suit of armor up to the neck with a little more than a steel hat to protect the head. They wore very plain looking attire, neither fashion nor aesthetic had a place in the military. Each guard held a very lengthy pike called Chángmáos, each man was a good seven and a quarter foot tall and their weapons towered over them and the door. The Chángmáos were also very basic things, twelve foot long wooden poles with a steel serrated spike at it's end, these objects could puncture through the bellies of ten fully grown men with a single piercing thrust.
"Zhùfú, Shǒuwèi!" Tiáojie Rén happily greeted the nearest guard to her.
"Zhùfú, Elfinqueen. How was your morning constitutional?" Guard Shǒuwèi replied. The noises of the locks, the other guards shuffling and the clacking of their armor traveled through the wooden door.
"Uneventful, although the Dwarf over there tried to swindle me." she poked her thumb behind her to the merchant.
He laughed as the door released and creaked open. "Dwarves and their gold." She continued into the castle and Guard Shǒuwèi bowed to her. "Have a good day Elfinqueen."
"Xièxiè!" she thanked him as she entered, the second guard held the door and swung it back into place.

    THUD! The large wooden door echoed within the large stone structure. The Elfinqueen proceeded further into the hallway before her menservants arrived, three youthful elven men in proper black tuxedos approached the queen to attend to her needs. She disrobed to reveal her royal attire; a silky sky blue dress, frilly and laced all the way down to the floor. The robe covered the full splendor of the Jīn Bǎoshí necklace, a shimmering golden chain with the jewel as the centerpiece. As she moved forward her porcelain white shoes poked out with each step. One of the servants claimed her robe and walked off while the others tended to her daily routines. "Milady you have no business in the morning, you are free until the mid day for your daughter's coronation."
"Thank you Púrén." she replied "Can you please send Fílos down to the hearth and start a fire?"
"Fílos?" Púrén asked.
"Indeed, I wish to have a chat with him before I see Zhìyù Zhe." Púrén bowed and proceeded out and up the large staircase in the center of the fort. "Fúwùqì, prepare some tea for us. Earl Grey please."
"Very well Ma'am." Fúwùqì bowed and also left the room, leaving the Elfinqueen by herself. She walked over to the empty fireplace by the side of the hallway and sat down on one of the wooden chairs there.
After just a brief moment Púrén came downstairs and helped an elderly man to come with him. "Milady, Servant Fílos." he announced at the foot of the steps.

    The man stammered his way towards the fireplace, clearly delighted to see Tiáojie Rén while Púrén proceeded to the hearth and began to ignite a fire.
"Fílos!" She got up and walked over to him, they hugged each other for a while. Fílos was an aged Archonian man, he was both the royal court's foreign advisor and a life long friend of both Tiáojie Rén and her husband Evimería. For a mortal man Fílos was a rather average height even at the ripe old age of 85, he wrapped his hands around her waist for her chest was at his eye level. Tiáojie Rén similarly tried to reach down and embrace her companion, even outstretched her arms were barely able to reach his back, so in stead her patted his head and brushed his long silver hair. "How has life treated you my friend?"
Still in her embrace Fílos replied with his decrepit voice "Oh, old man Chronos continues to steal away my good looks."
She laughed at his witty remark. "Come now. Asgardians don't care about their appearances, especially the men." They finished hugging and mutually pulled away from each other.
"It's not that we don't care my Queen, it's that we rather complain about it once we lose it." he quipped again.
They bother shared a laugh for a moment before she directed him. "Please Fílos, join me by the fire." She reached out to the fireplace now lit with a roaring fire. "Tea is getting ready."
"Ah!" he answered "Earl Grey is it?" she nodded in reply. "I'll have a pot and a yarn with you my queen." They both moved to the fireplace again. She helped Fílos to his seat, elf chairs are a good deal larger then mortal chairs, she lifted him off the ground slightly and placed him on the seat. He groaned slightly as he was put into the chair, he looked down for a moment to once again marvel at the sight. He sat on the edge of the seat and looked down at his feet, he could not reach the ground from his height although his wasn't so far that his vertigo affected him. He turned around to see the backrest, it loomed rather like a tall fence around a person's garden. It was quite literally an oversized chair by his perspective. She turned about and sat down by her seat opposite him.
Fúwùqì entered with a silver tray of tea and sweets. "Earl Grey Ma'am, with Baklava, Fairy Cake and shortbread biscuits."
Fílos was surprised. "You made Baklava for me? My favorite?"
"Chef Chúshī is well versed in Archonian cuisine." Fúwùqì responded "By the request of the Elfinqueen Chef created the desert since yesterday."
"Oh my word!" he grasped "I appreciate the effort my queen. Thank you."
"Well I've been meaning to have a good talk with you Fílos, especially now." Fúwùqì passed a cup of tea to Fílos and then to the queen. "Thank you Fúwùqì. As you know,-" she paused to drink a sip of her tea, Fúwùqì left the room to tend to the daily housekeeping. "Today my daughter Zhìyù Zhe will be coronated to be the next Elfinqueen. Since it is my last day today I'd like to use my last privilege with you before I step down."
Fílos began his tea as well. "I'm honored." They both smiled and continued to drink.
She finished her sip and inquired "I have a couple of questions for you if you don't mind." She sighed as her smile sunk into a more sad expression "It is about my late husband and my daughter."
"Of course. Go ahead."
She sighed again. "You are aware of the tumult that happened in the Eldar population about my wedding to Evimería." He nodded "How was the wedding perceived by the High Men?"
He grunted as he drank more tea, he set down his cup beside him on the seat and answer back. "The marriage was very well received in Árchontikó. We found the marriage of an Eldar to a High Man to be perfectly natural, in fact we perceive it as inevitable."
"Inevitable?" she asked "How so?"
He laughed and rightly pointed out "Our relationship between our people has been that of strong and lengthy friendship. We have never had ill will between us and in times of great fear and terrible war we have stood side by side to repel against the Orkind. Frankly my queen if the idea of such a coupling strikes you as strange you discredit the entire history of our peoples." He laughed some more as she smiled again, Fílos always knew how to brighten anyone with his wit and good humor.
"Oh I never believed in the hysteria." she lamented "I fell in love with his generosity and passion for peace."
"I knew him personally." he added, he lifted his finger to make his point. "Evimería was a very good man, exactly how you described him. He was a proper Eldarphile." He paused to drink more of his tea, she reflected on Evimería and the time they spent together. "It's a terrible shame the Eldars are so progressive in philosophy, yet the thought of being wed to anyone other than an Eldar is considered heathen."
She grunted while she drank her tea, she finished the cup and set it down on the tray. "Indeed. The people needed to know Evimería to understand why I loved him so." she sighed "I miss him terribly." before she smiled once again "But you know I see a little bit of his soul in Zhìyù Zhe, it's amazing to see so much of him in her, his sweet nature, his thoughtfulness, his intelligence. Every time I see her she reminds me of him."
"She is certainly her father's daughter." he replied "She is also her mother's daughter too. I have had wonderful discussions about philosophy with her." He paused to hear her chuckle, it was the first time in a long time he heard Tiáojie Rén laugh. "She is a very intelligent young woman my queen. I have no doubt at all that she will lead the country to peace and prosperity. Her wisdom and intellect will guild the Eldars to a bright future."
Slowly she nodded to Fílos' observation. "I certainly hope so." She got up from her chair and walked towards him, preparing to lift him off the seat.
"Don't you have another question for me my queen?" he asked her.
"No." she shook her head "Not anymore." She reached out to him. "Do you need help getting up?"
"Oh no, I don't want to get up." He reached over and pointed to the tray. "Just pass over the Baklava and I'll get myself up. If I need to the servants can help me."
"Very well." she walked right up to him and they hugged once again, their friendship was made strong by their candid and open discussions of all things. The queen stood back up and turned about to hand over the sweets. "Would you like some cake as well?"
"Uh, yes. Thank you." she carved a slice of the bright yellow cake and the golden pastry. "Here you are." She handed him a full plate. "I'm going to visit my daughter before her coronation. I'll see you at the ceremony." As he was eating his food he replied with a happy grunt, an audible hum of delight. He mumbled something with his mouth full of treats. Tiáojie Rén smiled and turned about to leave her good friend to his desert.

    Up in one of the turrets of the Wěidà de Fángzi a lone woman stood by the window of her room. She stared out to the mountains to the east and focused on the details of the scenery, the jagged peaks and deep troughs, snow capped and terribly high, a harsh and unforgiving part of the world. However one particular detail stood out and she focused on it deeply. It was a statue, a stone creation on the peak of one of the mountains. A cross with a thick circle outline on top, a simple design for a simple purpose - remembrance. The woman shed a tear, watching the statue from afar, when she heard a knocking at the door. "Zhìyù Zhe, are you ready dear?" the Elfinqueen inquired.
"Yes mother." she replied. Tiáojie Rén opened the door and entered her daughter's chamber, a small circular space compared to her own bedroom. Her bed rested off the the side, a simple bed with blue satin sheets and covers, on it the crown her daughter would eventually wear for the next hundred years sat quietly by itself - the Jewel of Xihe. Above the bed one of her paintings hung, her interpretation of a White Dragon. Zhìyù Zhe herself stood by the window opposite the door, beside her the easel rested on the stone brick wall with a heavily stained rag drooping off the stand. She wore her specially made dress for the day, the same sky blue dress as her mother's, with the same frills and lace. Unlike her mother's dress her attire had an embroidered design around the edges of the fabric, white triangular shapes in a seemingly random pattern created a border all along the bottom of the skirt and the sleeves. Also unlike her mother her sleeves were flared and hung low from her hands. Beside her easel she possessed a desk with a raised surface. It was in fact a drawing desk, a triangular surface to rest her books or papers on the sill and quietly work on her artistry or calligraphy or whatever it was she felt inclined to do. Beside the desk on its left was a torch for her to work at night, on the left side of the desk was a wooden coat stand where her night clothes hung off one of the hooks.
Noticing the crown Tiáojie Rén walked over to the bed. "Ah, I see you're not ready yet." She reached over to it.
She sighed "I won't ever be ready mother."
Picking up the crown the Elfinqueen walked towards her daughter. "You know, I remember my coronation quite well. It wasn't too long before the Race against Peace." Standing beside her daughter she handed her the crown; it was a magnificent piece, a shining golden headband, dazzling in polish and beauty. Around the band were sixteen short spires extended outwards, each one was short and stubby. The shape of the crown reflected the sun shining down onto the wearer for the sun was Xihe herself, the great Goddess in the sky who formed the earth and fashioned the elves in her likeness. As a final detail, sitting inside the front spire was a jewel of Life Mana, an eternal blessing cast over the wearer from Xihe. Zhìyù Zhe took the crown from her mother and examined the beautiful shape while her mother continued her story. "I was so scared I genuinely thought I was going to plunge us into terrible despair."
She continued to stare at the crown and asked her mother "Am I ready to become Elfinqueen mother?" She looked down to see Elfinqueen, this towering child watching over her own mother by a clear head.
She smiled at her "My dear Zhìyù Zhe, no one will ever truly know if they are ready to be a leader. I certainly didn't know when I ascended, but I was able to affect a peace treaty, end all violence and maintain the existence of those poor Orcs." She sighed and grabbed a hold of her daughter by the waist, she looked up to her and replied. "I was ready to be Elfinqueen, Zhìyù Zhe. I believe you are ready."
She sighed herself " I wonder about my people mother." She looked up and out the window again, she focused again on the statue in the mountains. It was a tombstone, that of Elfinking Evimería the Mortal - Zhìyù Zhe's father and Tiáojie Rén's dear husband. She watched her father's resting place and began to cry. "I wonder about all the trouble and tumult of today. A rising sense of hatred and racism is brewing. The people see me as a freak of nature, a half breed. They call me dirty, giant, muddy hair and darkened eyes."
"No Zhìyù Zhe." she comforted her despairing child. "Not everyone. A few random bigots who are stuck in the Second Age." She paused, watching her daughter break down was too much for her to bare. She became angry herself. "Those angry men still think Wood Elves are abominations, that Dark Elves are unholy freaks, and that the Eldars are the superior race over all humanoid races. We grew this insane systemic complex all that time ago that we were better than everyone. We are not that! The Wood Elves are not that and neither are the Dark Elves! We, the mortal men and the lesser races; we cannot let ourselves be labelled by other people's perceptions. Instead we must lead by example and label ourselves by the actions we take." She paused to reach up and turn her daughter's head to look back to her. "By their logic I am a traitorous whore who married a lesser and destroyed the future of the royal line. Instead I am the Elfinqueen who brought peace to the entire world, began to establish trade partners with every single race and inso doing integrate all other races into the country. I effected change that I didn't even dream I could do Zhìyù Zhe. So my sweet, intelligent daughter, what do you want to make of this world?" Stunned by her mother's words she was speechless for a few seconds, it was a long time since she saw her mother speak with such passion and truth.
Eventually she calmed down and spoke candidly herself. "I don't want for much mother. All I want is to rid this land of bigotry and hate. To create a world where all are equal to the eyes of all men and women."
Tiáojie Rén smiled at her words. "An impossible dream." She reached over and took the crown from her, she turned it around and stretched up to place the crown on her daughter's head. "Zhìyù Zhe, you have the academic and philosophical intelligence to achieve that in your Centurion Rule." She let go and relaxed her arms, she took in the vision of the future, the incoming Elfinqueen Zhìyù Zhe, the Second Monarch of the Fifth Age. "You are ready to become Elfinqueen my child." She smiled back at her mother, buoyed by her confidence in her and the prospect of shaping the future in her own image.

    "Thank you mother." Zhìyù Zhe whispered softly into the air.
Fantasy Short Stories - Aspirations
This is the first of a series of ten short stories I'll be producing, these stories are designed to introduce characters, races and the story of the fantasy world I created since the start of 2016 well before I returned to dA. This story in particular mentions the lead up to the coronation of one of the major characters in the fantasy story - Elfinqueen Zhìyù Zhe, the Second Monarch of the Fifth Age - and her race, the High Elves - widely known as the Eldars.

Zhìyù Zhe is a friendly, personable, intellectual young woman. She is still an adolescent elf, at the time of the short story she is ascends to the title of Elfinqueen at the age of 58. As a mixed race character she exhibits traits from her mother and father - spirituality and inquiry. Zhìyù Zhe was thrust into the royal life at a young age and yearns for the same thing young women want in their lives, young love and men to romance, however she never got to understand these and still wants for these things. Intellectually Zhìyù Zhe is an academic in most alchemical sciences, she is specifically adept to the healing properties of Mana and Healing Magic specifically, acquiring a Doctorate of Knowledge and Application of the Specialist Discipline of Healing Magic. She has a disliking to people who in her view seems to be bigoted and intolerant, taking particular issue with the High Elves' own history. She is by nature an optimist and always encourages the goodness on all things.

The High Elf culture and society is based around wisdom, pacifism and spirituality. As one of the oldest known races in the world - the other race being the Goblins, they exude a sense of divinity and higher knowledge about them. However the original basis of their wisdom is today known to be a very faulty and the root cause of a number of problems, not least of which is their stubbornness and unshakable faith. Because the Elves at the time were so isolated from the rest of the world's races for a long time they began to see themselves as superior to all things around them. When certain events lead to the schism of the elves the Eldars began to grew a hatred for what they perceived as the Wood Elves overdosing on freedom and eventually a war sprang from this - the Reformation War. Because the High Elves are surrounded by Life Mana and the Nodes the mana produces the Eldars are both highly proficient in Life Magic as well as having a highly moralized society, they see themselves as preservers of all life, they do not kill animals for food and as such violent attacks and murder do not occur at all. As a result of this regicide does not happen, and because elves are immune to natural mortality High Elves are at least theoretically capable of living forever. The tradition of the Centurion Rule was established in the First Age in which Elfinkings and Elfinqueens rule over
Xiao Jinglíng - the name of the Eldar homeland - for 100 years and when the time comes the current reigning monarch abdicates for their first born to ascend. It represents the passing of time and acknowledging the youth as the next generation to care for the life of the earth. As the oldest practitioners of magic casting and summoning the High Elves have seamlessly melded magic into their religious practices, using magic within the clergy to bless the general population, to protect the royal line and the army and to summon great beasts to further protect against terrible foes from the Orkind to opposing elf clans.

The High Elf culture is mostly inspired by Chinese culture and mythology. The Eldar mythology draws from traditional Chinese mythos and the strong traditional values is taken from aspects of Confucianism. I have always felt that depictions of High Elf culture from other sources strike me as very oriental and in some cases specifically Chinese in architecture so I drew more from that as a source of inspiration and developed a steadfast yet wise society.

Friday

    It was just past 7 o-clock at night. Jack was driving along the empty backstreets. His heart was pounding out of his chest, today's session was the most intense experience he ever encountered. The road ahead was straight and empty so Jack took the moment to reassess today's events.
"I don't think that's a good idea!" Jack exclaimed. He stood over Lily at her home.
She stood up to him from the couch. "What's wrong? You said it was the only-"
"I know full well what I said!" Jack barked back at her. "It was a bad idea, I never should have said that."
"Hang on." Lily reached out and grabbed his arm. "You said it's the only way to work out my feelings. Is that true?"
Jack sighed as he shooed Lily's hand away. "Even if that is true it's still a terrible idea. You're practically propositioning yourself."
"I am not prostituting myself to you dammit!" Lily shouted back. "This last week has been so crazy to me. False memories, transference, confused emotions; I have no idea what to feel anymore." A silence descended, for a few seconds the two just stood there.
Eventually Jack sighed and replied. "You can't do it. You shouldn't do it."
Lily moved closer to Jack. "But I need to know Jack." He knew she was right, Jack couldn't hide from the fact that the past week has changed Lily's life. However while everything she said was true he couldn't allow his errand thought to linger any longer, but that would mean breaking his moral code.
"Lily," Jack said. "You must not kiss me."
Lily grabbed a hold of his hands. "Why not?!"
"Because it would be wrong. Just wrong!" Jack tried to break away from Lily but she held on tighter with every jut and thrash. "Why aren't you letting go?"
"Because Jack," Lily was on the verge of breaking down and crying. "I think I love you." Tears began to stream down her delicate face. "And I need to know if you do to." Jack could see it in her eyes, he was hurting her. He was causing pain to the woman he loves - claimed to love. He couldn't bare to watch Lily disintegrate before his eyes, he had to make a difficult choice; uphold his integrity as a therapist or as a decent human being. Jack took just a brief moment to weight up his options, then he leaned into Lily's sweet lips and kissed her, stroking her neck after a few seconds. They felt it, a great sense to affection washed over each other. Separated by circumstance they were now revealing their true feelings to each other. Jack eventually broke away from from Lily, trembling in both fear and delight he was swimming in ambivalence.
Eventually Jack uttered "Oh Lily." He saw her expression change from utter sadness to joy, he could see she held a flame for Jack. "I have to go."
"What?!" Lily asked as he let go of her and began to move away. "Why Jack? What's wrong?"
"Lily," Jack replied back "I need to go home and work out how I feel about this. Lily, we shrinks don't fraternize with clients. It's a slippery slope."
As Jack turned his back walking to the door Lily ran up to him. "Don't tell me you didn't feel that!" Jack stopped but didn't turn to see her. "I know you felt it, the warmth between us. I could tell from the way you kissed me."
"Please Lily." Jack raised his hand behind to stop her. "Don't tempt me. I need to work out how I feel about you." As soon as he finished he continued forward to the door. Jack opened it and turned to see Lily walk up to him again. "I'll return tonight, I need to know if I can move forward." Jack sighed and turned back to leave the house.
"JACK!" Lily yelled out to him as she made her ways to the open door, watching Jack leave. She felt a pain in her chest, Lily groaned and clutched her heart, she fell to her knees on the floor. At the same time Jack just entered his car and he too felt the same pain stabbing his heart. He grunted and slumped over the wheel, he shrieked and held his chest. The two shared the same pain, the heartache of life tearing them apart in terrible fashion. Jack and Lily panted where they were, the searing pain debilitated them. After a few seconds Jack eventually regained his composure and started the car. Lily sobbed at the foot of the door, she heard the engine start and looked up to see the black car drive off. She stood up from where she was and whispered in the breeze "I love you Jack."
Or at least Jack believed that happened. He was one street away, his heart started to pound out of his chest, his breathing was heavy and laboured. He finally arrived back at Lily's house, the car pulled over and he turned the engine off. Jack just sat there, the headlights still on. His heart raced a million kilometers an hour, Jack thought so quickly her lost himself for a while. He steeled himself, switched the lights off and get out of the car.

    With every step he took Jack became more and more anxious. His head was in another world, he tried desperately to reconcile his feelings with what he had always considered to be his morality; fidelity, integrity, honestly - basic honest-to-goodness trust. Now as he just about reached the door he was prepared to set everything straight. Jack reached the door and stood there for a while, paralyzed by fear and trepidation. He looked down and realized his hand was already just about at the door bell, he wasn't even thinking about it and he was already going to ring the bell. As soon as he realized this Jack took no time at all and pressed the button. He waited for a few seconds, Jack took the time to take off his glasses and clean the lenses. The door opened just as he finished, he put his glasses back on and was stunned to see Lily. "You look gorgeous." Jack uttered.
"You look handsome yourself." Lily replied back. She wore her most revealing and seductive dress yet; it didn't bother Jack that she wore her high heels this time. Lily wore the most beautiful dress, a simple black outfit with a plunging neckline. She wore the same diamond encrusted ruby necklace from yesterday, it also hung the same way, it rested gently between her nearly bare breasts. Jack couldn't believe how extraordinarily beautiful Lily was, he could even smell the intoxicating perfume she was wearing. He was totally entranced with her.
Jack snapped out of his daze and asserted himself. "Lily I've done a lot of thinking, and I've worked out how I feel about you. Can I come inside?"
"Of course." Lily stepped out of the way and let Jack in her house.
Jack wasted no time at all. "Okay, first of all I need to get this off my chest.-" Having walked past her he turned around to look into Lily's eyes. "Lily, I do love you. It turns out I've never stopped loving you. I thought I would after university, but I worked out something today." He clutched his heart but he wasn't in pain. "I sometimes get chest pains Lily. They seem to come about whenever I console anyone to consider divorce or when a relationship turns sour. Never at any other time. In this past week I've had several chest pains and I've had no idea why this was the case, but then I realized that they appeared every time I think about you." Jack began to slowly walk up to Lily. "Every time I think about you my heart would ache, how much I long to be with you. Somehow I associate a breakup or a divorce with us being apart." He stopped right next to her and sighed. "But I can't. Oh Lily I so wish for the day I can hold you in my arms and declare my love for you, but you love another man. You're in love with another man. I could never bring myself to ever steal a woman from someone, even if it was you." Jack sighed again, he looked down to see Lily's hands and held onto them. "But today Lily," he looked up to see her again "Today everything has changed, my desire for you is just too much to bare now. I need you." Jack's voice broke, he was barely able to keep himself together. "But I need you to answer two questions for me. Answer me honestly - truthfully - and then I can work out what to do." Lily slowly nodded to his query and Jack took a deep breath. "Alright. Firstly, do you still love your husband Russel?"
Lily looked away and took a moment to think, the past week had changed everything she felt about the people closest to her. She looked back at Jack and replied "No."
Jack gasped, he was triggered. It was the one condition he needed. "Not at all?" It was the only conceivable reason he would ever consider sleeping with a client.
"No." Lily shook her head.
Jack's heart was racing, he reconciled his morality. "Lily. Secondly,-" He gulped, his desire for Lily almost totally took control of his body. "Do you love me?" He was trembling with lust.
Lily leaned towards Jack and millimeters away from his lips she breathed "I love you Jack." She closed the gap and kissed him, the same sense of affection and desire surged between them. Jack let go of Lily's hands and reached up to hold her head and Lily grabbed Jack's waist, the two were so in love with each other they both clang to each other as if they were husband and wife. Jack leaned into Lily some more and kissed her passionately, his desire was boiling into lust. Lily was so flushed she radiated heat from her neck, nearly her entire face and neck were red with desire as she moaned.
After a moment of steamy passion Jack slowed down and leaned back, he released Lily's lips and his heart was thumping so hard he shook with nervous energy. "Lily," he whispered to the air, breathing very heavily "I think we should go upstairs."
Lily too was breathing so forcefully, she smiled and slyly she leaned into Jack's ear and whispered "Let's go to the bedroom." Somehow Jack's heart managed to beat even faster still, Jack was about to make love to the woman he long desired. The two quickly went upstairs to fulfill their cardinal pleasure.

    Inside the bedroom the lights were off, the only light came from the open door into the hallway. The lovers entered the room and Lily switched on the light. Lily turned about to kiss Jack and said "I'll go get ready, make yourself comfortable." before she walked away. Jack sighed as she did so, he began to undress himself as he surveyed the space. The room was large and ornately decorated; the king bed dominated the space, the sky blue doona covered the bed sheets. A small bedside table parted the bed from the corner, on it the lamp watched over a pile of magazines sitting on the table. The window revealed a balcony outside for Lily to spend her free time painting, the easel was packed up and rested on the corner by the window, evidence of her mess over the week was just visible at night. Lily closed the curtains to provide privacy and then walked to one corner of the room, it was a door which led to the ensuite bathroom, a small inlet for Lily and Russel to freshen up at the start of the day. Beside the ensuite door the dresser was the most personalized object in the room, a tall mirror with hand carved curves and waves etched into and cut to shape, a flowing circular pattern bordered the mirror. On the dresser were pictures of Lily and Russel, a few photos of their time together in random parks. However the big feature of the dresser flanked the mirror, two of Lily's famous portraits hung over the dresser and next to each side of the mirror, a portrait of herself on one side and that of her husband Russel on the other. The two portraits looked at each other, Lily's innocent smile was cast towards her husband's rugged grin. He appeared comfortable, his hair a rusty orange, unshaven and aged, his eyes met his better half's portrait. The paintings were deliberately designed this way, the pictures faced the bed so that they greeted them as they woke up. Interesting. Jack thought to himself as his stared at the picture. Lil feels the need to remind herself she's in love with Russel. That's a very bad sign. Taking off his trousers he put his clothes off to one side of the dresser and quickly shut the door. Jack turned back around and walked over to the bed, he sat on the mattress and waited. In the brief moment he was still trying to convince himself it was a good thing he was about to sleep with Lily, his feelings may be reconciled but his strong sense of morality continued to wage war internally. After the moment the ensuite door opened and Lily came out, Jack didn't react at first but Lily roused his attention. "I'm ready." He turned around and was awestruck by the sight; Lily was totally naked, the light revealed her bare flesh. Her smile was not innocent anymore, it was cheeky, sly even; she was enticing Jack to have his way with her. The cold winter air made her skin pimply with goosebumps. Her breasts were round and perky, they were a very arousing sight, her nipples erect in winter's night. Her golden hair flowed all the way down her sexy, curvy body down to her alluring bottom - except she was facing him, he saw her womanhood staring back at him. Jack looked at Lily's naked body and could not stop thinking about all the dreams he had and the lust coursing through his veins. Jack slowly stood up and turned to her, he stared into her eyes and entranced by her natural beauty he walked up to Lily, he ran his hands over the sides of her bare chest and pulled her to his own naked body. He kissed her passionately, drinking deeply into her affections and gently caressing her soft skin, the sensations electrified them both. Lily wanted more, she pulled Jack closer to her body and felt the hair on his head as she continued to kiss him.
After several seconds of intense kissing Jack let go of Lily's lips and with laboured breath he finally said "You look beautiful."
Lily chuckled at the strangely timed remark and replied back "You're a handsome fella yourself. But I don't think we'll be needing this." Jack was confused as Lily ran her hands down the sides of his waist. Eventually she reached his boxer shorts he was still wearing, the one bit of clothing left between them.
Lily grabbed a hold on each side of the waistband and began to pull it down when Jack stopped her and softly said "Let me." He came between her hands and the garment and after gently prying her hands free of his underwear Jack pull down his boxers and revealed his manhood, his phallus fully erect and ready to make love. He pulled Lily close to him once again and kissed her some more, the heat of passion made Lily's neck flush and her face crimson. In unison they moved towards the bed; Lily turned around and Jack walked the lovers towards the mattress. They continued to kiss kiss each other as they reached the bed, Lily felt the edge on her legs and they stopped, still kissing for a second. Lily pulled away from Jack's lips and leaned back, he was stroking her neck as she moved backwards. She fell onto the bed and looked up at Jack's body; he wasn't a striking figure, in fact he was slightly overweight, the extra body fat hid his abs and muscle tone and his breast was not flat. Still he was a dashing and virile young man waiting to show Lily the depth of his love.
"Jack." Lily said through her heavy breathing, she wanted him so badly. She turned around and slowly crawled her way up the to bed to turn on the lamp. Jack ogled her behind the whole time. Lily looked back at him and continued. "Turn off the light and come to bed." Jack chuckled and quickly made his way to the light switch while Lily quickly climbed down and pulled the covers off to get into bed. He switched off the light and turned around to see Lily in bed and beckon to him. "Jack, make love to me." With a sly smirk Jack slowly waked over to the bed and climbed in, he sat over Lily with his hands holding her waist and with a nervous sigh her began to achieve his greatest wish.

    "You know Lily." Jack said, staring into Lily's sapphire eyes "I've wanted to do this for ten years."
Lily laughed back. "Fuck me?"
"No no no." Jack leaned over and began to kiss Lily's neck, she laughed as he caressed her body and kissed her flushed neck. He lifted his head for a moment to finish his reply. "Making love to you." He inched up to Lily's face and kissed her some more. They were both starting to sweat, the taste of their kiss was slightly salty. For a moment they continued their passion, lustfully they kissed each other and held onto their now wet skin, then Jack began to rise over Lily and after a brief second his erect penis was just beyond her vagina. Breathing heavily and flushed with lust Jack slowly entered Lily.
"AH!" She felt his manhood enter her delicate organ slowly, Lily moaned and breathed the whole time he sheathed into her womb. "Hah! Hah." Her moans turned into a slight chuckle as Jack returned to kissing his lover. Slowly he began his lovemaking, he moved his hips and thrusted his desire. Every time he moved in any direction Lily moaned though the kiss. Jack was deep and sensual, he made love slowly so as to be gentle to Lily. The pleasure was building up in Lily's body, eventually she needed to breath. They let go of their lips and she screamed "AH!"
Jack grunted and moaned to his rhythm. "Oh. Ah! Oh. AAHH!" Occasionally letting out a shriek of delight.
Lily replied in kind. "Oh. Ah! Oh god! Oh! Ah." Her hands and arms were dangling by her sides, jutting backwards and forwards to his steamy passion. She reached up to hold Jack as he continued to make love, feeling his wet shoulders and arching back in motion. "Oh yes!" Lily breathed "Oh Jack! AH! That feels so good. Oh!"
Jack was kissing her neck some more as she moaned, he lifted his head and laughed as he panted. "Heh. Oh! Oh Lil. I love you. So much. Huh!" He then started to move faster, his mind surrendering to his desire for Lily. His lovemaking was beyond anything Lily experienced before; it was sheer unadulterated pleasure, it wasn't even painful. Not even the idea of infidelity crossed her mind, she simply received Jack's love and was elated by the sensations. Jack continued thrusting into Lily and with every jolt of energy they both felt a rising tension within each other slowly becoming greater and greater.
Lily's shouting became louder and quicker. "AH! OH! OH GOD! YES! UH!" Jack returned to kissing her flushed, dripping wet neck, he heightened her pleasure the more he kissed her tender flesh in the heat of passion. He then leaned forward and kissed her again, lips locked and bodies sweated as Jack moved even quicker than before. Lily continued to moan louder as she kissed Jack, she was getting close to releasing her energy. Jack was so overcome with his desires he didn't realize he was having sex with her so furiously. He could feel her pussy tightening more and more as he made love.
He quickly moved up and let go of Lily's lips to ask her "Are you alright? I'm not hurting you. Am I?"
Just as quickly Lily grabbed a hold of Jack's neck and pulled it to her, she dragged his head to her neck and shouted "No. AH! I'm fine. Just- AH! Just keep going!" Lily felt the tension in her womanhood ready to burst.
Jack could feel it too, he was about to shoot his essence into her. "I'm nearly there Lil! HA! I'm going t-"
"I know Jack. OH GOD! Just keep going!" Jack again increased his tempo, his was seconds away. The sensation, the sound, the smell, the heat, the motion; everything triggered him to spill his seed. He panted with great effort as he made love with such speed, he was making Lily ache with pleasure.
It was happening. Jack felt it. His voice began to crescendo. "AH AH OH I- I- AH A-" It happened, his penis splashed semen into her vagina and filled her up.
Lily also climaxed and screamed "HAH AH OH FUCK! AH AH AH AAHHH!" Her fluids ejected into her pussy, they both came into each other. Jack did it, he finally felt what it was like to make love to the woman he has always loved. Holding onto her waist and feeling the warmth of their bodily fluids inside her nether regions Jack panted, he rested on top of Lily and listened to her breathless moans. Jack reached out and held her neck once more, he kissed her once again. Even after coitus Jack still wanted to please Lily.

    However a thought suddenly entered his mind, as he lay on top of Lily kissing her Jack started to chuckle and then laugh, he pulled away from her and sat up. Lily smiled at Jack's mirth and asked "What's so funny?"
He looked down at her and grinned, he was about to kill the mood. "I'm a monster Lil." Jack realized he was corrupted to the bone. Lily's smile sank and Jack decided to vent his disgust at himself, he started to weep. "I'm a terrible person. I go around fucking other men's wives and take advantage of vulnerable women like you. I thought I had morals and ethics, I thought I had integrity, but all I can think about is myself and how I want you." Jack became so distraught he lifted his left hand and rubbed his aching temple, trying to quell the raging thoughts in his mind. Lily became horrified at the sudden turn of events, she watched on as Jack fell to Earth. He turned around to fall on his back and beside his lover, he was panting and his face was a sight of horror and grief. "I always think about others Lily. I always try to help and consider my clients needs first. I never think about myself." Jack stared at the ceiling for a few seconds, working out why everything happened the way it did; the disturbing sex dream last week, the coffee with Taki, the visit, all the sessions, the sexual tension building. Eventually he turned to see Lily, the one constant in the whole entanglement. "What the fuck have I done?" In that instant Lily leaned in and kissed Jack herself, the action completely surprised him. Lily then stopped, she savored the blissful moment she made being close to Jack again. Slowly she learned back, giving herself enough room between them and then she quickly slapped Jack across the face. This strange act stunned him even more.
"Shut the fuck up!" Lily exclaimed, waving her finger at Jack. "Stop saying shit like that." Jack had not recovered from the earlier assault, he was stunned rigid. "You're not a terrible person Jack. You're not a monster."
"I must be." he replied "I stopped caring about Russel and started caring about myself."
"That's just it though. You didn't really care about him or you." Lily stared into Jack's walnut eyes as she finished her point. "You cared about me. You've always cared about me Jack, the whole time." She reached for his head and felt his tense flesh and unshaven face. Lily was the first to truly understand, so she explained everything. "That day Jack, the last day of high school. Do you remember it?"
Jack replied softly. "Of course."
"You turned on your music, you nearly bumped into me and we talked about the future. Uni and all that." Jack nodded along. "You wanted to ask me something and took a long time to ask." She paused to see Jack still nod. "You wanted to ask me out, didn't you?"
"Oh Lily." he groaned, reaching out to stroke her golden hair. "Of course I did. You were beautiful then and you're beautiful now."
Lily smiled and chuckled a bit at Jack's declaration. "I thought so. To be honest I could tell." He raised an eyebrow as she continued. "When we hugged each other I could feel your heartbeat." All of a sudden Jack grew wide-eyed and blushed. Lily grinned at his reaction. "It's okay Jack."
"It is?" he asked.
"Yep." She leaned in again very slowly and replied "My heart was racing too." He gasped at that last remark and before he had any ability to respond back Lily kissed him again with passion and intensity. Jack never realized it but he found his soulmate so long ago; the one person that was destined to be his best friend and his lover, the one who would partner with him in life's grand adventure of discovery, torn asunder by manipulation and distance. Lily stopped again and continued her speech. "You're not a bad person Jack. Actually you're the most generous person I know."
"In what way?" he asked.
"You were in love with me for a long time Jack. Ten years. Did you decide to be happy for me? That your happiness was my happiness?" He nodded in reply. "So for ten years you were happy for me, you saw me happy with Russel and that made you happy." Jack continued to nod. "See Jack, I think you gave me your happiness."
"I gave you my happiness?" he asked.
"I think you did. See I thought I was happy with Russel and that day was just a freak event, but now that I think about it I was only happy with Russel because he was there and you weren't. I got so much closer to him and you were just pushed aside." Lily began to stroke Jack's hair, she played with the curls of his black hair. "I was in love with Russel, but I wasn't happy." She paused, she just stared at Jack for a moment of two. His eyes were still watery but Jack stopped crying, Lily's revelations only now started to sink in. "We caught up at our wedding, I definitely remember you told me about happiness, and you know that really helped me settle my nerves. At the time I thought it was just the words, but it was seeing you again. Seeing you happy made me happy." Jack was gobsmacked, he was so surprised his bottom jaw opened and he looked like a speechless fool. "I looked to you to make me happy Jack. I just didn't realize that until now." She smiled as she continued. "And I saw your love life was actually pretty sad. Edna just kinda put up with you for a couple of years, and now Serena left you too. I can't help but think you had a pretty sad life. See, that's why I think you gave me your happiness. I felt so much happier because you were happy for me, at a cost to your own happiness." Lily then began to move, she held onto Jack's waist as she herself mounted on top of him. Her natural form towered over Jack, the pristine blonde beauty that lived in his dreams glistened from the sweat and the warm light. "You lived a life without real happiness for ten years Jack," She paused for a second as she kissed him and started to feel his tender flesh. "Don't you think you deserve just one day of pure happiness?"
Jack moaned and tried to think as Lily continued to ravish him. "Yes Lily, of course! Everyone deserves to experience happiness-" She kissed his neck and Jack was interrupted by his own self. "AH! But do you really think this is okay? To commit adultery and destroy a man's life."
"Jack," slowly Lily rose above him, she panted heavily and was waiting for the right time. "Russel's life has already ended, our love was based on a trick my brain pulled on me. My love for him was never real." She slid her hands down his sweaty body and his hot groin. Lily felt his penis, Jack was still fully aroused by her and she decided to take complete advantage of it. "The kindness and positivity I saw in Russel was actually from you." She then grabbed his hands and placed them onto her hips, they both began to breath more heavily as she rose up over his erect phallus. "Don't get me wrong; he is all of those things, Russel is kind and he does make me happy but thinking about it now it wasn't the same thing I thought it was." Then she slowly inched her way down his shaft. They both gasped and moaned as she forced herself down, Jack couldn't control his urge to twitch in pleasure, Lily felt him move inside her and she gasped in delight as her head rolled back. "Ah!" she sighed and tilted her head forward again, ready to make love once more. "Russel is kind, but you're generous. Russel is happy, but you're positive. That's what I felt in him before-" Lily leaned down and with Jack still holding her she rested on top of him, carrying his neck she whispered the rest into his ear. "And now what I feel in you."

    Lily started to move, laying down she jutted her hips, running up and down Jack's shaft. They both shrieked and moaned as they had sex a second time tonight. Jack held onto Lily's firm and shapely rear end as he dragged her up and down, he excited himself and Lily with each pull. "Ah! Oh. AH! Yes! Oh!" Jack was more vocal now, his dream fulfilled he enjoyed the pleasure of his great love desiring his lovemaking. He wasn't afraid to tell the world he was in love with Lily, it wasn't taboo anymore.
She was equally louder. "Ah. Ah. AAH! Oh. Oh yeah! Ah." Lily lived out her dream with Jack, what was no more than a mutual respect transformed almost overnight into an intimate sexual affair. It wasn't that Lily sought to cheat or to find another man, it was that Lily's own emotions were suddenly taken from Russel and replaced into Jack, she felt exactly the same way as she did so beforehand. Nothing had changed, just the man she had intimate feelings for. Lily continued to ride Jack, the sound of skin slapping and fluids mixing was drowned out by the lovers breathing and moaning. Every time she moved Lily felt him inside her, she received intense pleasure and was enamored by his delicate touch. Jack continued to carry her, he dictated the tempo she was making love to him.
Then Jack started to grunt more and more heavily. "AH! UGH. AH. AAH! UGH. OH! GAH!" It took him a moment but he realized he began to thrust into Lily now, his loins ached for more of Lily's love. Between his moaning and breathing Jack laughed. "I want you. GAH! Lily. I don't- HAH! I don't care about your-" For some reason Jack chose this moment to pull down and kiss Lily's neck.
As he did she became much louder herself, the sensations she felt started to become too much to handle. "AH AH AH OOOOOHHHH! AH AH OH! YES! OH! YEAH!" Her senses began to overload.
Jack let go of her neck and released her, concluding his point. "Russel. YEAH! I love you! OOH! Too much. I need you Lil." He could feel it again, he was close to ejaculating.
As sweat dripped off her lips and her breasts Lily staggered a reply. "OH! I love you. AAH!! Too Jack. I- GAH! I want you! YES! I'm going to- CUM! Any minute now."
"So am I!" Jack shrieked back as he once again began to move quicker and thrust deeper into Lily. He felt her soft womanhood quiver and burn the more he made love. He felt that she was about to climax, Jack decided to thrust quicker and harder. He could feel the pressure rising again, he was about to cum into here again. Jack's heart pounded, he sweated through the bed sheets, he clang onto Lily's back, he burned as her had sex with Lily, he moaned with every single jut. Then he felt it. "AH AH YES! AAH! YES! FUCK YES YE- YE- AAAHHH!!" Jack spilled his seed a second time, semen thundered into Lily's vagina and filled her up.
She achieved orgasm at the same time once again. "OH! OH GOD! YES! YES! AH! YES! AAHH! AAAAHHHHH!!!" Lily too expelled her essence and it slowly spilled out of her, running down Jack's phallus. The pleasure was electric, Jack laid there frozen on the bed while Lily was paralyzed. She shuddered from climaxing and was trembling, she was barely able to remain above him. Eventually her hands gave way and she lightly fell onto Jack. They both panted for several seconds, both of them were totally out of energy, they needed to recuperate. Jack stared up at the ceiling, his blood rushed back to his head. He thought about the day and how everything lead to this moment in time, how just a simple visit turned into sex in a matter of days. It wasn't just sex, it was sex with Lily, the woman he always loved from afar. Jack could not believe he not only slept with her but it was exactly how he thought it would be. Lily on the other hand continued to breath past his neck, she laid on top of Jack and and she too needed time to recharge. She was thinking about all the time she lost being with Russel, how she could have had a better life with Jack. The experience left her questioning the very nature of her life up to this point. Eventually after she slowed down she turned her head to see Jack still looking up, she reached out to hes head and turned it to see her. Lily kissed Jack one last time, she was slow and gentle. She pulled back just enough to let go of his lips and staring into his eyes she whispered "How do you feel?"
With what little energy he had left Jack smiled and replied just as softly "Happy." Lily smiled back at him, she knew he wanted it as much as she did and she didn't regret it at all. She turned around and stretched out to the desk lamp, switching it off before returning to her lover's arms. She fell asleep immediately, Jack however took one last moment to reflect. He knew that Russel was the type of person that was aggressive and would fight for an injustice, undeniably a confrontation would ensue tomorrow when he is expected back from his work. Slowly Jack drifted off and slept knowing that today was the bast day of his life and that it was also very likely to be his last.
Forbidden Love Chapter 7
Finally! After a solid month and a half of writing, falling into a rut twice and trying very hard not to get distracted by my own sex scene, I finally finished this monster chapter! This is the penultimate chapter where everything finally takes place. We see our male protagonist return back to Lily's house after a revealing psychiatric session finally pushed the emotions of each character over the edge and suffer an attraction to each other. The evening is one that changes the dynamic entirely as they both succumb to their urges to sleep with each other. However even in the throws of sex discoveries about each other continue to surface. By the end of the chapter the characters are entangled and discover each other to be their soulmate. This is also the example of moral and psychological conflict I intended to portray to coincide with the eventual physical confrontation. Right now the biggest fear I have is whether or not the sex scene is any good, if my past is any indication then it's good but really only the public can determine for me.

I've made the decision to start doing writing commissions. I have a few friends with experience in it and have given me great advice on it. I'll complete Forbidden Love first as well as start to roll out short stories for my fantasy epic before I will feel comfortable with making commissions.

It's a scary thought to actually put a price on my work, especially since even now I can't put a value on art but after a good and honest discussion I'm happy to do it. :) Wish me luck.

Okay.
So the past eight months since I returned to dA has actually been a very informative period; the internet is so much more different than I every really expected, very nearly all of my friends have gone which isn't that much of a surprise, being seen takes so much effort that anyone with a weak will and a small circle of friends might end up leaving dA - that's a huge thing I want people to take away here - and finally that finding the right people really change the future. From the time that I restarted in April I genuinely thought I'd end up leaving dA for good because I was getting nothing at all, but now I have a very supportive group of new friends who encourage me a great deal. I just want to take a moment to thank these people here; Arasteia is a great artist who does a lot of creepy pieces, I'm not a fan of the darker side but her art is extraordinary and she is a great person to talk to. She made a series of journals about mental health as well as a ripping good read artists who are finding trouble breaking into the site. You know what, here's the link to it! It's seriously worth the read. sylessae is another great artist who is doing a project that kinda ballooned into this massive artist movement. If you're not aware of Starcall it's a wonderful initiative where artists can collaborate to create artworks freely for artist that are otherwise unable to pay for commissions. It's a great idea and definitely worth backing, go to sylessae's profile page for more information and how to apply a request or to become an artist for Starcall, tell her Chris sent you. ^_^ Bugger it! Watch Syl while you're at it! DarkAngelsRhapsody is one of my oldest friends on dA, she was here with me back in the heyday of dA in 2006 and 2007 and she remains to be one of my best friends here, definitely up there with Arasteia and sylessae. She does fantastic 3D landscapes and the occasional writing. She tells me she's read all me work this whole time, I don't believe her but I love the compliment. xD
Lastly I want to shout out two artists in particular, Lady-Raven16 and Chaolamity . Both of them did something for me that I never really ever had happen before, they both created fanarts of my original characters. I know them from sylessae's Discord server but these weren't Starcall requests so much as they were interested in making piece of my characters. >///< I've never been so flattered before. Lady-Raven16 did my personal favorite OC because she was the most unique idea I ever came up with; Chiyo Akemi who is the Millennial Sailor Pluto from my fanfiction, and Chaolamity did a really great job in recreating Lily from Forbidden Love.
I hope the new year will bring more good fortune and more friendly people to meet and talk with. I won't deny that I'd love more fanart by anyone willing to make any. But I also want to tell you that I'm also hyping over a new project to take one after Forbidden Love is over, I'm creating character profiles for a high fantasy epic I kinda teased a while ago but decided to take another direction. I intend to start it this year so if you like a unique high fantasy story with lots of colourful characters and unique ideas watch this space. :3
See you guys later, also LOOK AT THE AWESOME FANARTS PEOPLE DID FOR ME! DDDD:

Hi, yeah it's been ages. How are you?
I've been back since April, I've been focusing on my creative writing more or less the whole time. It's been great to get my creativity back but I have been finding it very difficult to get feedback, especially since I'm writing a fanfiction purely to improve my skill. I'm trying to apply myself to become a proper writer and get at least something published.

Yeah, it would be great if you could get a story published. Its so hard with so many authors out there. But its definitely worth it to give it a whirl.  I have been sketching a lot over the last couple years, but I have had back issues which make it hard for me to sit at the computer for hours at a time, so I haven't had the ability to do the coloring and processing that I did before with my photoshop like I used to do. I want to get back into it though.  I may just have to force myself. lol.  I will probably at least post some of my sketches to prove that I haven't been lazy at least.  :D
