His sister Michelle on the opposite begged until they would take her with them and now she’s a sniper in the army, while he had retreated to the lodge, which was in the middle of the Cairngorms, in a valley hidden away from any civilisation – exactly the way he liked it to write his books.

     How The Lightsaber Has Changed Over Time

    How The Lightsaber Has Changed Over Time

    In many works of fiction, the main characters have certain items, called “props” that the characters always carry, that are associated with the character, or are otherwise usually present with the character. Typical examples are Long John Silver's parrot, Frodo's Sting or Indiana Jones' whip. These items are essentially extensions of the character, and are used not only as a tool or weapon but often for characterization and as an icon for which the character is remembered. In pop culture, the lightsaber is the iconic weapon of a Jedi, and although there are characters who are not Jedi who carry them, it has become a recognizable symbol of Star Wars and one that has evolved from a basic, metal tube to many other, more interesting and exotic designs.

    Persephone Reincarnated

    When I was a kid, I used to have a recurring dream of walking barefoot on a field of tall grass & yellow dandelions in the early morning hours. I always pictured myself as a kid who was all alone in the field of pure bliss and eternal happiness. Sometimes, I had the company of birds and butterflies and other times I was happily running around in the field. I don't know if that field is even real or it existed only in my imagination, but in my heart, it was so real.

    Rael

    Rael

    In the darkest forest, on the edge of the largest city in the fairy kingdom, the creatures that had inhabited it for the last two million years were more restless than they had been in the last century. For the last seven weeks, fairies across the land had tried to restore the land to its natural harmony. Some of the fairies had taken to meditating in the forest for hours upon hours. One such fairy, who was more worried about healing the forest and setting it back in order than chanting idiotically around the ceremonial alters, Rael sat on an old stump beginning her daily meditation routine. Just from placing a hand on the stump, she could feel the anger, resentment, and pain of not only the tree itself but of the entire forest for miles upon miles. Something in the radiating pain made Rael uneasy. As welcoming as the forest seemed, Rael could almost feel the forest's creatures and the ancient magic that had sustained it for ages take their last dying breaths in the stillness of the sudden silence that ran unbroken throughout the entire expanse of
