31 – Hallowed

Goldie Leraje lowered her rifle. “Hey Bon Bon. You doing good over there?” She didn’t look like she was. Blood caked that black fur all across her body, a mix of red and white that matted it down. Not quite staining it, since the pitch-black shade was steadily absorbing it, but still clinging and clumping.Continue reading “31 – Hallowed”

30 – Ivory

Bonnie Terato had been a young girl when the Enchantress came knocking on her door. If asked, she wouldn’t be able to place her exact age. Older than ten, perhaps, though younger than thirteen.  Old enough to have opinions about old women trying to get into her house. Her parents were out at the time.Continue reading “30 – Ivory”

29 – Ebony

Bonnie needed something simple. She’d been dealing with a number of beings both fair and foul, and she honestly just wanted something simple and vicious to deal with. No fae, no demons, no vengeance quests. Just a monster that needed dealing with. There were always monsters that needed dealing with. Blackwood, a hanging tree withContinue reading “29 – Ebony”

28 – Hellhound

Gilda Laurent had a bit of a reputation in her hometown. The young blonde tended to get in trouble, more often than not, out of a mix of tomboyish energy and a fascination with money that bordered on the avaricious. More than once, she had been caught tricking the other children her age, and someContinue reading “28 – Hellhound”

27 – Serpent’s Den

Ramon was not the only name he had. He’d been called a wolf, a dog, a mutt, a mongrel, even a coyote. He would balk at the idea of being called a hound though, for it implied domestication and ownership. He was his own master, though many would consider him feral for having such aContinue reading “27 – Serpent’s Den”

23 – Vanities

Bonnie hadn’t expected Ramon to apologize. Most people who screwed her over didn’t tend to, but the red wolf actually seemed contrite.  Not that he hadn’t planned to have her fight the lion in his place. He most certainly had. It was just, to hear him tell it, that he had planned to actually tellContinue reading “23 – Vanities”

21 – Hog

The Ball was in full swing past the golden archway of its entrance. Guests chatted freely in false forms, suited or gowned, yet always masked.  Castle Aurora was not a place for truth. It existed for merriment, for enjoyment, for indulgence. Dancing on the ballroom floor, patterned black and white to signify neutrality, in aContinue reading “21 – Hog”

20 – Aurum

Castle Aurora. It was a name that resonated among those who yearned for the fantastic: The Castle without a King.  No ruler held it, no lord claimed its land. It belonged to the Kindred, in as much as it could belong to anyone. They were its hosts, and a grand ball was always held inContinue reading “20 – Aurum”

19 – Autumn

Bonnie had been to the Autumn Lands before. Despite the chill of encroaching winter that permeated the northern countries she called home, the cold in Autumn was lesser. Unprotected, one would still shiver, but here, no snow fell from the sky and the trees still kept their leaves, orange though they were. In most circumstances,Continue reading “19 – Autumn”

16 – Goblin

Goblins were not quite monsters, but they weren’t exactly fae either. It was impossible to call them fair by any stretch of the imagination.  They were beings of inherent filth, ruin, and chaos. Anarchic yet monarchic, scavengers and corpse feeders, born from cauldron pots and mottled with grease. Suffice to say, they made for oddContinue reading “16 – Goblin”
