Poor Phraser: I wear eyewear →
poorphraser: People have always stared at my glasses and felt the need to comment on them. But whereas once the usual response was “YOU SPECKY TWAT” A statement that is designed to distress, to upset the way I feel I do, however, prefer it to the question “Are they real?” Of course…

Ah, thank you to all the people that’s been following lately! Finally reached 20 followers! Thank you very much! I hope I won’t disappoint you guys!
Have you tried Clay? Because I have. I have wetted my mouth with tastes, Glue, tree bark and boiled bones. Everything, bite-size samples, Filling my stomach like sand grains. I bide my time for each meal, Placate this swollen tongue with thoughts, Vivid and more mouth-watering than anything I have eaten. But still not substance enough. For this bulging mass of sand - My stomach.
She is dancing, Her feet small and bare, Her hair smells of dew and oaks, Her hem is stained with Life. And A breath of young, unformed roots, The rocking swirl of salt water And flickering fishes Filled her lungs. Everything is intertwined Around her body. The final pool of shimmering life in her hands, She lifts it above her head and Pours it onto her. To cleanse her senses, To...
Day 15 - What are a character’s bad habits?
Let’s focus on Indrik now! Sometimes Indrik just snacks about and he usually just eats parts of the animals rather than the whole thing. Sometimes he snacks around where he and Midday live and thus Midday has found half-chewed carcasses by her doorstep on more than one occassion.
Day 14 - What is a character’s biggest regret?
This is going to be short because regrets make up a good part of the story and personality of the characters. I think Indrik’s regret was deciding to pick his own ambitions over his gut instincts. it led him to making a horrible decision in his life and now he’s sort of trying his best to redeem himself by helping Midday. Actually I can only think of one person who has a regret worth...
Day 13 - What kind of foods are popular in the...
Most easily accessible food tends to be vegetables such as corn and wheat as Hesperos has plenty of low land ideal for farming. Livestock such as cows are also reared and the cheese there is actually quite popular with the folks. Up to the very north is much colder though and not a lot is done other than sheep farming and whatnot. Game meat is also widely eaten due to the diverse amount found in...
“Careful he’ll bite.” She tilts her hat coolly And takes the stalk out of her mouth Her arms are bronze Sun-kissed But her eyes don’t quite suit her There is no whip in her hand No flaming hoop, not even a chair She squats down Twirling words and hay in her fingertips She ought to be scared But the tiger is crouching down Ears flatten and eyes pensive It wants to strike but doesn’t know how He...
Day 12 - How does a character comfort themself?
When Midday is sad, well she doesn’t do a lot about it except just get angry and when she gets angry she then gets moody and sulky. Midday really wants to appear as strong as the rest of her family so she bottles up all her feelings. But really, she’d just want to talk and scowl a bit. That’s why when she’s sad she always talks to Indrik mostly, he never judges her and...

Right now though, people are busy arranging a marriage of one of the princes to the princess of Hua Xing. Actually, there isn’t much to people. There’s a paranoid adviser who is useful in many situations but has an absolute fear in fairies and the wilderness in...
Day 10 - Your character when they were young(er)
“Midday, you’ve been awfully quiet.” Chronos pressed his hand gently against the top of her corn yellow hair, startling the girl out of her daydream. She blinked her eyes and glanced at her father, a tall man with white hair and a short beard. He smiled and stroked her hair, “is something the matter?” “No.” “Midday.” She rubbed at her eyes, “I’m just tired.” Chronos’s smile weakened, the girl was...

My fingers are too heavy To leave the surface of your earth Unscathed and untouched. Whorls of fingerprints are pressed Into your skin, My breath leaves the soft film of Early-morning mist And the echoes of my footsteps Reverberate in the cornucopia of your ear. Somehow, I wanted to watch you In your own raw light once again With your rosy cold lips and virgin blush. Somehow, I wanted to talk to...
