Background/bio, aesthetics, associations, etc.: “He came to them in the night. His escort erected their tents in the yards, and he gave himself a crown.” Irra is a prince of plague. His aesthetic is red neon signs in the rain, black velvet, bones being picked apart by vultures. He’s arrogant but clever and very cunning. I pulled the name “Irra” from a website that listed a bunch of demon names, where “Irra” was the demon of plague. Values loyalty but will rule with force if necessary.

"Icarus washes up on Miami Beach over the spring break of 2k16 and finds a world where the gods roam the streets,
where his wax wings burned themselves into trenches of scars down his back,
where we warn our children of the dangers of flying too high,
but forget the part about the riptides waiting if you fly too low."

"falling is feeling alive again on open roads and dusty lungs filled with old bones my closet feels so full of skeletons I got an adrenaline rush from killing a spider today royal flush full house of cobwebs and dead flies and wishing you and I were whole again
the smell of nail polish is ingrained in everything in my bedsheets bottles bleed black and red and gold and glitter
glitter always sticks to hardwood floors and skin I’m sick of things sticking to my skin I am not a spider web stop sticking to my skin
dusty decay painting my nails the color of old scrapbooks I take photos because I need memories to exist outside of me I can’t remember anything I’ve forgotten to brush my teeth for the 3rd day in a row old habits die hard...."
--10 minute automatic writing session

~*~
"...You were born on a Monday.
But your eighteenth birthday fell on a Wednesday,
your sixteenth on a Sunday,
and you are more than a desperate reach for empty space.
The Tower of Babel did not touch God.
You are not here for someone else to tell you to touch God.
You are not here for someone else.
You may be a disappointment child,
with your Monday fog eyes and shaking hands,
but sometimes you have to choose your own joy over someone else’s expectations--
because I was born on a Monday..."

“the right side of the periodic table is a list of noble gases,
of elements that cannot be combined because they are perfectly complete all on their own,
elements that are bright like neon and light like helium,
floating into the atmosphere with their own lack of density.
you’re just so easy to be around.
you make me feel weightless, like i am basking in sunshine.
name yourself Helios, for you create all the good things that fill up my insides
and send me flying,
reaching for the atmosphere on wax wings.
i am icarus and you are a safety net to catch me.
you are too-fast driving down twisting highways and old jeans that are too loose at the knees.
you are straight teeth and milkshakes and midnight lord of the rings.
eternal summers stretch between your fingertips,
half-empty gas tanks and sugar-coated movie tickets,
helium and neon and icarus.
the ocean strives to be like you, strong and cold and warm and gentle all at once,
endless and alive and full of life.”

@alienjack Hello :) Could you write a poem for Eden here? He's the leader of my Clan, He is calm and peaceful, doesn't support fights or wars. His familiar is a great addition for him since it feeds on carcasses, and doesnt prey on living things. He is impressed by this behavior and how he doesnt take more than he needs from the nature. Eden is an experienced leader and does everything for his Clan Hope this explanation helps :3 [url=http://flightrising.com/main.php?dragon=14001600] [img]http://flightrising.com/rendern/350/140017/14001600_350.png[/img] [/url] Thank you so much!

there is silence in the gaps of winter,
where apples don’t grow and snakes don’t
slither through too-tall grass, taking
the things that they don’t need.

there is peace in the quiet of winter,
where wars are only lost and families don’t
fall apart, where there are no
bones to be picked amongst the dead leaves.

there is ice in the wind of winter,
where clouds form on harsh exhales,
splintering the silence. the garden
is silent, the guardian
is quiet.

winter falls in the garden, songs of
wandering confidence drifting through
each breeze with melodies of
contentment,
wisdom,
peace.

the gates of eden stand open
when there is only snow to see.

butterfly wings and flower petals are
pressed into glass vases so the light refracts aquamarine.
gardens tend to grow in ribcages,
where flowers lend their beauty to the words drawn from
tightly-woven lungs. everything
is gentle now, drifting with the breeze while the creek bubbles
with the laughter of freshwater nymphs.
advice is best given when it’s more for the giver than receiver,
when it comes with the wisdom of
trial and error. flying starts with falling. summer dips into
autumn and winter. under the ice,
spring waits with liquid water, when rivers are too fast and
too wild to freeze over. when the
flow of them is too steady; fast rivers are always reliable.
when you cover your eyes,
you’ll find that it becomes a little bit easier to see.
