I’ll Forget You
It was almost time . . . Almost the end.
With a shaky breath I lifted my weary eyes from where they had been lowered to my lap, and looked around me for the first time in hours. The sight that met me was most unwelcome, but I gazed upon it all the same.
I was in a cold, dungy prison cell, housed deep beneath the bowls of the People’s Palace. It was still and quiet here within in the jail- though since the Seeker had freed all the prisoners, this came as no surprise to me. There were only two residents left in the dungeon now, and I counted as one of them.
Only several days prior the Seeker had stormed the People’s Palace- aided by forces that no one had known he had- and the servants of Lord Rahl had defended the keep until they were overtaken. We had all fought valiantly- each member of the castle doing his or her part- and yet in the end it had amounted to very little.
I had lived within the c

Chapter 12: Breakfast at Frozen Heart
Everything seemed to be happening at once. Anna could almost hear her own heartbeat. Her chest had never felt tighter. Was she having a heart attack? Would it matter if she were? She was going to die today. She could feel it.
She wondered what Elsa was going to do with her body after she was gone. Would she have her buried in the prison's courtyard? Would she have her frozen in a block of ice and put on display next to "Blondie"? Would she...
Anna abruptly came to her senses.
"HANDS, INMATE!" a guard yelled. "THROUGH THE BARS! NOW!"
She turned and noticed that Rapunzel's hands were now in cuffs.
"Oh," she went, doing as she was ordered. She winced a bit as she felt the cold steel wrap itself around her wrists.
"Try to stay on earth, newbie" Rapunzel whispered at her sternly. "And remember you have a ball and chain attached to your leg. It will make you trip and fall flat on your face if you're not careful."
Anna, by some miracle, ma

Chapter 11: The Weakest and Dumbest Lifer
"I can't believe what a fool I am," Anna moaned as she stared down at her prison number, written exactly where Rapunzel said it was in what she figured must be permanent marker.
"You know, I've literally lost track of how many times you've said that in the last five minutes," said Rapunzel with her eyes narrowed. "Are you really always this boring?"
But Anna didn't care. She just kept banging her head against the wall of her cell, no matter how much physical pain it was causing her. Heck, she deserved an awful headache for how idiotic she had been!
"Hey, did you ever practice for a spelling bee or whatever when you were a kid?" asked Rapunzel, picking at one of her toes. "You'd spell out the words to yourself over and over again, right? Well, just repeat your prison number to yourself the same way. When you're eating, when you're trying to nap, when you're taking a dump..."
Anna didn't answer, instead deciding that her forehead and the wall sho

Chapter 10: Goldie's Deal
Rapunzel may have been a young woman in prison with a 20 year sentence, but you wouldn't know that at the moment from looking at her face. She was beaming like someone who had just purchased a winning lottery ticket.
This gave Anna a very, very bad feeling.
"Um...why do you look so happy?" asked Anna, deciding that playing dumb was the best way to go with this right now. "Do you have a crush on that guard that just went by or something? Because if you do, I don't really see that working out..."
"I can't believe this," said Rapunzel breathlessly, ignoring what Anna had just said. "You're...you're the warden's sister?!"
"I...I have no idea what you're talking about!" went Anna, placing her hands in front of herself as though doing that would somehow defend herself against what her cellie had just found out.
"The warden's own sister...is in prison," said Rapunzel, apparently needing to convince even herself that this was in fact true. "The warden's own sister...i
In the AbyssIn the Abyss by Tarnisis
In the Abyss
Lost in the darkness, where silence surrounds us.
Once there was morning, now endless night.
I searched for my answer, I vowed never to desert you, and yet here I am on my own. . .
Once you told me that we had forever, but what good is forever when you're coming undone?
Seams become threadbare and lives wane to nothing, as we continue this never-ending dance of the dead.
But who are we? One good and one evil, or merely two opposites that are constantly bound to collide?
A moment of chance, or a frightful fate?
Would you claim the

Whether broken or merely distraught
Believe what you say, with your opinion displayed,
But for what is it that you have fought?
A reason without any rhyme
Our souls live within the time
Forget the motions, of Love's sweet potions
No longer lost or blind.
A champion lost in a wood
His bravery left for good
Think of the gain, not the loss of his name
Would you embrace him if you could?
Eloquence with a flash of a dare
Making ladies stop and stare
A poisonous bite with a gigantic might
What a devilish pair.
The ending of our song
We shall leave, and we must be strong.
With a wave and a bow, and a 'by your leave now'
We shall return to where we belong.
