Active threads:


Infinite Distances (Syliran Wilderness)
ImageImageImageImage
Where Kamalia, Gromhir, Avayra and Satu leave Mura and set sail to Nyka, in a journey towards Syliras. Quite a heartrending thread since this might be the last time Kamalia will ever see Mura, having been exiled from her homeland.

A Meeting at the Pavilion (Mura)
ImageImage
The first time Kamalia meets Satu. This is one of my favorite action threads so far since I get the chance to see how Satu would react according to her heartsight and her own personal code, having to face the bitch Matalla Shivkani. This thread also brings out a lot of Kamalia's vindictiveness. Satu is a beautiful writer!


Welcome Home (Syliras)
ImageImageImage
Kamalia and Gromhir meet Stitch, a blind aurist and martial artist, for the first time at the Golden Dragon Inn. Kam and Grom had been looking for a place they could call "Home" in Syliras, with Kammy feeling homesick. They will be staying at Stitch's orphanage until the end of Winter.

The Moonlight Serenade (Mura)
ImageImage
Kamalia and Trista, an akvatari, meet for the first time. I'm still wondering how to make this thread more exciting for Trista.

Twin Cries in the Night (Syliras)
ImageImageImageImageImage
An exciting quest thread for the "White Party" (LOL) and Karona in Syliras.

Nothing Shall Ever Stay the Same (Mura)
Image
Pumpkin Festival. Shahal's Divination. Trouble in Mura!

Storms and Clear Skies (Mura)
ImageImage
The pair visits the Temple of All Gods for the first time, and they meet Glav. I'm hoping that meeting Glav will enlighten my character more, and actually give her the chance to solidify her faith in Avalis. I'm hoping this will be a prelude to an even grander story arc.

The Game Thread (Syliran Wilderness, high priority)
ImageImageImageImageImage
The most exciting thread I'm in so far! Someone sent a note to Stitch at the Welcome Home that if Stitch does not join this so-called Game, the orphanage, along with the children, will be burned down. Kammy and Gromhir sneak after their blind friend to help him win the Game, and encounter unlikely allies like Nyahna Sasin, Demetri and Rhylen.


Plans:
  • A new thread with Satu in Mura where Matalla does something REALLY nasty to Gromhir.
  • A council thread where Shahal decides what to do with her wayward granddaughter. I'm hoping Avayra could come, and I was hoping I'd have the freedom to use Shahal Timandre and some of the Council Members since it's very important to my character's story arc. I have a somewhat brilliant scene in mind.
  • Spring: A new thread with Gromhir. Find a new home and a job.
  • Spring: Meet Nya Winters and Abashai.
  • Spring: Teach Rhylen some reimancy tricks?
  • Spring/Summer: Have a passionate affair grand adventure with Siiri!
  • HOPEFULLY, a flashback thread with Avayra and Aunt Kidala.

Spring/Summer: Have a passionate affair grand adventure with Siiri!


In the words of Facebook: 'Siiri likes this.' LOL
Apologies to everyone I'm threading with, but it's like the Danaides for me right now.

Hey! I didn't make the cut for "Plans?"

Well, when you get stuck in Myrian cage somewhere waiting to be devoured, don't come crying to me about it. Sthargon's washing his hair that night.

Where is the plan to draw on Chaelnomyl's wings IC. :(
In his winding wail and his deep-heaved sigh, his aching grief found vent...
While the sea looked upon the bending sky and murmured,
"I repent..."

Silver, tinkling, dances by the sea
Ebon velvet crowns above and yet
Flame of diamonds glory by degree
Mirror trails that lead thee from regret

Wardrobe robes, the softened silhouette
Arcs that frame the siege of the arcane
Res that greets the air by thy thoughts set
Djed that calls the thunder in thy veins

Lips, such lips that sing forlorn refrains
Twilight's rise, thy countenance to take
Slip, ye sylph, thy people's ancient chains
Drink the Djed of myriads in thy wake

Thirst of knowledge perilous to slake
Alabaster halls in which to dwell
Heart and flesh and soul all to partake
Portions of a sinister farewell

And in her heart
A hundred rooms
She walks the halls
Of her desire
Awake, ye lords
Your banners call
For who withstands
Kamalia's fire
The fragile glass
The folded steel
The fluid force
The fountain mist
The breathing dreams
The dervish days
The flame - the ice
Kamalia kiss'd

Final Distance

Postby Kamalia Timandre on March 3rd, 2010, 8:35 am

Some people find it strange that I listen to Japanese songs, but in truth, these songs sound more appealing to me even if I don't understand the lyrics. Maybe because when I don't focus on the lyrics, I am able to focus more on the melody, and the emotions that the singer is trying to channel through her music. I love songs that dovetail nicely with my hearing, my own emotions and my personality.

Final Distance is one of my favorite songs because of its unusual arrangement. Once, a Japanese professor told me that Utada Hikaru was one of the few real singers in the music industry, and it made me ponder. Whenever I listened to Final Distance, I felt a heart-wrenching, heavy and drowning emotion.

I began to research on the song and its lyrics, and found out that that Final Distance was once a lively, upbeat song called "Distance". However, Rena Yamashita, a 6-year old girl who previously won an essay contest, writing about how she wanted to become a singer like Utada Hikaru had died of school stabbing in the Osaka School Massacre in 2001. Utada Hikaru rearranged the song "Distance" into ballad form, and renamed it into "Final Distance" to honor Rena Yamashita.

Ashivirsthargon,
Thank you for the wonderful poem. :)

I'm not really into Utada Hikaru, but this is definitely one of her best songs. :)
