It will be a long time before any of it is readable! Though I have shared bits and pieces here and there (Here and in the short stories section,
haha!) though most of that has been re-edited several times by now. I can't stop myself. I would work a lot faster if I didn't stop to edit until
later when all is finished!
*shifty eyes* Since it's first draft and I'll end up re-editting the heck out of it! (just what I've done today so far)
Gazing out across vibrant blues of the ocean, Marcus watched in barely concealed dismay as the remains of yet another boat washed up along the shore,
ill-constructed and in pieces, no sign of the bodies that had once been on board. He had not been prepared for the wild currents of the rough seas,
nor the inability of the people who would attempt the watery passage to this location… he had been a fool.
The ocean breeze swept through the long curls of his hair as he stood and stared over the horizon, the people who had survived their wild journeys
worked tirelessly at his back, preparing the cliff-side cave that he had discovered long ago for the ritual that was to come. Many of the people had
come by land rather than by sea, a long and tortuous journey either way they dared travel. Would one rather die by drowning out in the tumultuous
waters of the angry ocean, or by the hands of the “righteous” crusaders that roamed the land? He would rather a watery death, he knew far too well
what those mage hunters would do to those they captured, they were barely more sophisticated than simple bandits!
Unwanted visions of a young girl stripped of all possessions, battered, bloodied, and broken, hanging by the neck from the sturdy branch of a forest
tree flashed into his mind and he quickly barricaded his thoughts to free himself of the horrific recollection. When he and his mages faced the daring
trial that awaited them, no longer would evil reign over the beauty of this land! Those blessed with the blood would no longer fear the wrath of
ill-informed villagers or the wanton desires of the Magisters who ruled their lives! An era of peace would wash over these lands and all that they
knew would be redefined.
A glimmer of a smile crossed his face as he thought of the idyllic world that they would bring into being; it would be perfect.
Marcus turned from the churning ocean and swiftly made his way into the deep caverns that twisted unlikely inside the walls of the cliff. He had
discovered this cave system many years ago after perusing numerous historical tomes, most of which now lay dusty and delicate after these many
centuries, and having listened to the local folklore that varied from province to province.
‘twas said millennia ago when the Gods first came to these lands and bestowed their gifts upon the people, a Chosen had been declared! A mage Queen!
In service to her King and to her Kingdom, she had vanquished a necromancer within the illusory caves by the oceans of Brazel… as Marcus strode
along the cave’s corridors and admired the vibrant blue mushrooms that coated the stone walls, watching as they glowed brighter, a shimmering dust
falling from each and every fungi, he knew that this was that cave. Time had passed, the bodies of the dead long decayed, but auras had remained… he
would make his stand here.

Ahahahaha! I have to tell you about the friend I go out with on Tuesdays. Every time she asks for a senior discount, she asks if they want to see her
ID. They always say no. Bahahaha! I mean, I'm sure to a kid that young, she looks old. It's usually a young cashier. I just ask for my senior discount
and never ask if they need an ID. LOL

I'm a sucker for people(despite so many things I say and believe) and so I can't help but sympathize. This is an older man(not that old, but you know)
and he is alone(according to his statement) and so it could be that this channel is a way of contact with the outside world. Perhaps I am looking too
deeply at it, but that is what it made me think. Regardless an entertaining video. I am a sucker for people, despite pressing the big red button I
want to hug all humans(unless they do something that makes me want otherwise) because I sympathize for them for perhaps no reason. And I shut up now.

I'm not sure it was. Did you see the video? It was a fine video. Ah, hearts should be made of stone, not this emotional crap. Ok I mean that in a way
of humor, not exactly seriously.

I just can't imagine why anyone would not only vape one of the hottest peppers in the world but then go on to snort it and then rub it in his eye. It
looked like it hurt but I couldn't help laughing.
a reply to: Skid Mark
I understand the humor of it and yet him being alone in his house. I could see it as a way to garner attention which he is trying to do for his
channel I suppose. Again I could be looking too deeply. I have a soft spot for humans and perhaps other organisms.
