It was looking pretty grim, to be honest.

They'd all expected to die in battle someday, of course, that was just what people did around these parts. But no one thought today would be their day, somehow.

She'd been crawling through the mud for what felt like hours. Her joints were stiff, her fingers felt permanently gripped around her knife, the grit in her teeth was so thick her breath rasped in and out like wood against sandpaper. But she could see it at last.

A tall figure on a horse, surrounded by corpses and grinning madly. The battlefield had fallen silent except for the exhausted guards trailing along behind him, but that cursed figure sat tall, observing what had been almost as if it still was.

Cut off the head...

With a strangled cry of anger she surged out of the mud at the horse's feet, lunging up at the figure and seizing that cursed figure, the leader of the enemy, by the hair. The guards, as tired as she from the fighting, were too slow to stop her.

At the sound of her attack, other figures emerged from the mud, those who had planned this with her or heard rumor of plans or simply played dead in the vain hope they could see home again someday. The guards couldn't stop her.

She would be hailed as a hero.

A martyr, more like.

She felt the blood spill across her hands, rinsing away the mud. A lit cigar still dangled from that mad grin. In a moment she would join the futile fight, but she had done it. She deserved a reward, didn't she? She was a hero.

She plucked the cigar away and held it up to her lips. For a moment she thought she heard the sound of laughter.

I know I've been very quiet lately, I'm still here looking at everyone's work and talking to people, I just don't have much I feel like posting. I wanted to let you all know that I just finished writing a book for someone, the basic deal is he has great stories but not so great writing skills so he tells the story and I make it readable. He says we've got a couple publishers interested in it, and is very happy with my work. I'll let you all know if it gets published. I'll warn you now, though, there is some potentially triggering content. Feel free to note me and ask whether or not your triggers are in it, as that's the easiest way for me to do this without giving out spoilers or getting in trouble with his agent. (Apparently according to them putting a warning in the book is "inviting lawsuits" even though it is literally the exact opposite of that. Can you tell I'm a tiny bit disgruntled?)

As for less interesting things, I will graduate college in 2 months and 10 days with a BS in Biology and a BS in Psychology, and next week I will go talk to army recruiters to try to join up. Hope everyone's doing well.

It wasn't like he'd be watching this dumb show if it weren't for her. It's not like it was exactly terrible, he supposed, but it just wasn't his thing. Plus it was really awkward to be sitting there on the couch, reminding himself not to clench his fists too tightly when she finally had her turn. The way she gazed straight into the camera made it feel like she was looking straight at him. The way she used to.

She'd always been a singer. Before he even knew her he knew she was a singer. He had heard her singing to everyone and no one standing outside the school every afternoon. It had been a long time since she'd sang for him alone, but it almost felt like she was once more. Even though she was singing to millions. Like she'd always wanted.

Did you see it? She always texted him immediately after the broadcast ended.

Yea

What'd you think?

He paused, staring off into space.

I haven't heard that song in a long time

You sounded down last week.

What did that have to do with anything? Huh?

You sounded down. I wanted to cheer you up. ("I was singing for you," it felt like she was saying.)

He tried to crush the sudden feeling of swelling warmth in his chest.

my mom was watching the voice. I'm missing someone quite badly. I pretty much post exclusively on tumblr if I write at all these days but that someone might see it there and I don't want them to feel bad, but I don't want to leave it to languish on my hard drive.
