A Challenge to the Sands (Illyria, Gen)  
I've been AWOL for the last few weeks, I know. And given the nature of this post, it's a little ironic to say that time slipped away from me... But anyway, I'll try my best to catch up (by exploiting your catch-up amnesty) once I get some fics written.

But until then, I have a drabble for you, with Illyria against the world.

Title: A Challenge to the Sands
Rating: PG
Words: 100

Circular and unceasing, repeating and changing and evolving.
A man-made crypt, cemented in seconds, a sand-set cage entrapping us all within its blood-lined shackles; it moves, though intangible, without true purpose to exist. And yet it dictates and controls each aspect of all our feeble lives. Some can even pluck at its threads and until unravelled, we fall apart.
And it spirals, twisting and looping, drowning us all within its filthy grasp.
Such divinity daring to cradle me, jaws open and aching to consume.
And I stand in waiting, glaring into the void, for it to try and swallow.
Mood: artistic
Music: Lost in Paradise (Evanescence)

That's beautiful. You paint a picture (of bleakness) with words.

*squee* Thank you so much! That's really lovely of you to say.

Bleakness is surprisingly fun to write, and metaphors lend themselves to Illyria so well that I just can't help myself. I'm glad you liked it Sweetie! x

Excellent stuff!

It's a little scary how well you write Illyria. It's like you're channelling her. lol.

I *think* that's a compliment. Who wouldn't want to be God King of the Universe, anyway? And I do like me some red leather. And for most of the summer I had blue hair...

Where was I?

Oh, right. The drabble. I'm really glad you enjoyed!

Excellent evocation of Illyria.
