    Private Tales Dangerous Game

    "GET OVER HERE!" Proctor Ezekiel would yell, seething at some students taking a bit too long on their mile long run to the training grounds. One such person near the back was Kaye, not so much because she couldn't keep up, but because she found the grumpy man's rage to be, frankly, hilarious. He...

    Private Tales The Weight of Your Air

    There were some similarities between being a Dreadlord Initiate and a recruit to the Guard. For example, escorting important figures on their day to day. He did it once, for a foreign dignitary traveling from Vel Hetren to Vel Numera and his father thought it would be a chance to expose Rhidian...

    Private Tales Aftercare

    Days were a blur, lost in a haze of routine and travel. They had a schedule to follow, the medics and the few gifted Healers visiting various groups of Dreadlords and Guard alike. Her return to the city left a wonderfully exhausted Perrine, who longed for a bath and a good rest. She had not made...

    Private Tales Bones and A Beating Heart

    "Hold still." Perrine ordered through her teeth and patience quickly withdrew from her. All she needed was one night to herself. That was all she could afford herself, this night where she had nothing seeking her immediate attention. No Initiates to teach outside of lessons, no etiquette...

    Private Tales The Bones Glow As They Break

    "Artesto! Vaughn! Off your arses and get the gear secured into the wagon!" Rhidian suppressed the groan he wished to let out, but he was brought up a soldier.

    Completed Woe What A Night

    Tonight the academy grounds felt more quiet than they had in years. Something about the atmosphere had shifted and changed since the night the Proctors discovered a young Initiate, Willenia Helms, dead in the courtyard surrounded by hundreds of lit candles. No sign of attack. No evidence of foul...
  12. Livia Quinnick

    Fable - Ask A Fool's Errand

    "Do you know how to read a compass?" Livia narrowed her eyes and not bother hiding her look of disappointment. Finally, she was tasked with a mission that would have her be lead for the first half; deemed worthy enough to track down a suspected spy within Vel Anir. The only problem was that...

    Private Tales A Softer Side

    There was a reason Livia made the request that her family did not make efforts to visit her, not until she had some control on her corrupting magic. That guilt she still bore, the one responsible for the death of her father. Still, it did not lessen the love from her brothers. Even her mother...

    Fate - First Reply The Cycle Begins Anew

    TW: Imagery, Gore, Death, Abuse It's quiet in the forest. Baron stands in front of Seraphim with an angry expression, but there is no yelling, only a simple request: "Turn around, child. You'll soon see there's a lot more to fear from me than some harsh words." Seraphim quivers, no longer...

    Completed Sun and shade

    Tell Arran - The Imperial-Anirian border. It was nearly twilight. The Sun, though well past its prime, still shone brightly over the horizon, glimmering in-between the clouds and intermittently casting its rays upon the city below. Tucked away in one of the many narrow mountain valleys that...

    Private Tales Filling Our Heads With Love and Loneliness

    After two days he woke up, just as she had expected. He began to stir and she had stopped to find suitable cover for them. Despite having two days to prepare for this moment, Everleigh was still as much at a lost for words as she had been when she had left the Academy in the middle of the night...

    Completed A Head Full of Dreams

    Her feet carried her to the infirmary as if there was no other path for her to take. Everleigh was briskly marching through the halls, every footfall seeming to slam against the wooden floor with such vigor that one would have though the purple proctor to be much larger than she truly was. Her...

    Completed A Head Full of Ghosts

    The day was like any other: the sun rose and the world asked nothing of its inhabitants. The initiation of a promise couldn’t be felt in the air that was the same as it was yesterday. Everleigh awoke at the same time she usually did, or rather she got up and moved around at the same time she...

    Private Tales Children of the Sky and Sea

    The small boat from Vel Luin was one of the few that ever went to one of the archipelagos from the Cortosi Coast and sailed South along the shore of the Falwood.

    Letters To Proctor D’Amor (D’Amour? The hot proctor with white hair, how hard can it be?!?!?!)

    A letter filled with errors is handed to Proctor Evangeline D’Amour as she is in her office one day. Worse yet, the handwriting is atrocious. The courier gives it to the Pirian Proctor with a disgruntled look of annoyance. “Here. Take it.” He was quickly rushing out of the office as if the...
