I stare mutely into the Abyss. After a while, it stares back, frowning.
"What?"
I open my mouth.
"Oh! I'll get the Void."
I nod thanks. Wait for the Void.

"For what?"
"Oh?" The Devil laughed. "She didn't tell you?"
"What?" The teddy bear raised his sword. "Tell me what?"

Only in dying life:
Bright the hawk's flight
On the empty sky.

RIP

I spent two days gaming with Stephen this weekend. Broke out my mesmer and killed a god. And now my creative brain is absolutely buzzing.
