I heard a rumour, in the west beyond the sun
Whispers of a kingdom, brighter than the sun
I heard talk of a lord on the eastern shore
With love and grace and honour; compassion to his core
I heard tell from travelers enamored
Of a land of peace beyond the sea where men lay down their swords

I have not seen it with my eyes
But the rumours ring too sweet for lies
I want to bow down to this lord
And count among with his adored
I’ll lay my weapon at his feet
And sing his praise to all I meet

I heard the heralds preaching in every corner of the north
Urging us to seek, ourselves, this place beyond all worth
I listened to the grumbling of mercenary soldiers
Packing up to earn a fortune on which they can grow older
I heard the children in shouts and laughs and screams
Plan with or without their parents, eyes alight with dreams

Suddenly I woke to find entire cities empty
And I smile, as I know why these good people all would leave
Suddenly, I found, the wind blew through alone
And I whistled as I wandered eastward on my own
Suddenly I found that I could not control my steps
And on and on I followed, not knowing where they went

I started telling rumours to every man between
About this land so filled with wonders, that I had never seen
I whispered to the people as I walked along my road
Of this lord whom I had never met, whose name now filled my soul
I sang out, though I could not tell you why,
Urging every man I met to go along as I

Then one day I found myself
Across the desert, without help
I faced this land of mystery
And felt a fear engulfing me
But my feet went on without consent
And so did I, destruction bent

I saw with my eyes this realm that haunted dreams
Desolate and barren, echoing with anguished screams
I saw everywhere as I stumbled onward
People that had come with hope, starved and burned and tortured
I saw the lord whom I had loved, when finally I reined in,
Him the source of all the pain, with dragons writhing in his skin

If this goes on much longer I'll be the only martyr of a one-man war.
Now, I suppose it's time I really set about readjusting myself to dA. (Even though most of my first friends and watchers and the only people I actually built any kind of relations with here are gone now.)

Since my last post, I've lived through a semester in art school and grown, I hope, quite a bit. Made a few friends, lost one or two, blahblahblah. Soon the house I've lived the last 7 and a half years in is being sold as my sister moves across the country to Oregon and I move 30 minutes away into a college dorm room. It's been a rollercoaster kind of a life as any old friends who are still around will know, but chapters end and books are closed and new ones are picked up.
On to the important things. Assassin's Creed III.
I got the game for Christmas and played a bit every day until beating it last night. And god damn did I cry. And I mean I WEPT shamelessly from sequence 10 until the credits rolled on.

As much as I admired Altair and clung to Ezio, Connor seems to have moved something in me. His father Haytham, as well. I'll avoid spoilers as best I can here, but in my opinion, ubisoft has done better than ever before at making a very real relatable main character. Mistakes are made, emotions wreak havoc, and you end up home by yourself screaming at the TV because you know how Connor feels but you desperately want to save him from a mistake.

Now that the story is done and I've finished rereading the Lord of the Rings, as well, and since there are no more Game of Thrones books released for me to read, I must set myself on the path of finding yet another story of fantasy to immerse myself in.

Farewell, until I reach the end of that one, whatever it may be!
