Sweeping Dawn

Today’s the day, today’s the day! I could barely sleep, I could barely sit still! Today’s the day my Suki learns to fly a broom! And look, a perfect bright day for classes! I’ve been so patient for so long, but finally we can soar and laugh together in the wide skies. If I were … Continue reading Sweeping Dawn

Worlds Away

I’m not sure what my favourite book is, yet. It changes with each passing day, each new chapter started, each adventure completed. If a book takes me away for hours at a time, or if it makes me wonder and think, or if it makes me sad for someone I’ve never met and never will … Continue reading Worlds Away

Dangerous Work

Few mages use their magic for combat because of the stigma. Magic is a gift from Nature, many say, and should be treated with respect.

Healing Sleep

The wild dragons mostly keep to themselves, neither friend nor foe to the world of men-kind. When need arises, however, it is not unheard of for dragons to seek the aid of mages and healers, as some ailments need a little more attention and learning. This sleepy pup has a fever and has slept for … Continue reading Healing Sleep
