krait: a troll in profile with wavy horns and teal eyes (troll!self)
My second prompt was from [personal profile] blnchflr: "light".

Sonnet again! Terezi-centric this time. )

Soooo, I was going to do a sonnet for Rose; somehow, it ended up being a sonnet for my favourite troll, instead! Not surprising, really -- both of them have a complex and somewhat inimical association with light, which is interesting in view (ha!) of their shared title (one cannot see in darkness). Rose is more actively opposed to it; Scratch describes her as "enamored by what dwelt in shadow" and at one point literally becomes "grimdark." Terezi, on the other hand, isn't opposed to it so much as it appears to be opposed to her. :D
krait: a common krait on dusty ground (common krait)
My fourth prompt was from [personal profile] seerofbread: "smoke". Somehow that resulted in a sonnet for Vlad Taltos.

Sonnet below the cut. )

TPM Sonnet

Another TPM sonnet, finished today but still in need of revising. It doesn't even have a real title, yet, and it's rather rough.

Sonnet to a Fallen Master

Now I must go along without your face,
Your gentle words, your ever-bearing strength,
To keep me running straight the weary race,
Turn after turn down the expanding length
Of days that stretch ahead, a whole life long,
Abandoned to my own unsure device.
Oh, Master, did I ever do you wrong?
How was it my own love could not suffice
To hold you in this world, here at my side?
Why did you run ahead, the Sith engage?
Were you with my love so unsatisfied?
Master, I failed you; in subsequent rage
I slew the Sith, heart open to attack,
But not even the Dark could bring you back.
krait: a sea snake (krait) swimming (Default)
A limerick, occasioned by the discussion in Pottersues
Sadly, it is not slashy or even the least bit sex-related; however, it is my first limerick and I'm proud of it. (And simultaneously ashamed-- why do I have so much more trouble with five lines than with fourteen?)

A Potions professor named Snape
Felt trapped in his job--no escape!
But, said he with a grin,
I will never give in:
I'll teach DADA one day, just you wait!
