    Summary

    There’s such a thing as having too much strength.

    She came to that land from another, torn from her homeland and cast into a world where the standards of strength are that much lower. Before she was strong, but there she is something unearthly – something to be feared. Monster, they call her until she knows nothing more than that title bestowed upon her. She was human once in the world before, but there she is not.

    Times continues to tick onwards, death eludes her ever still, and the lands she roams creep ever closer to disaster. The world is on the precipice of another war, and then men and elves come, seeking a weapon from an age passed. There is a choice to be made, a war to win, and an enemy to defeat.

    She needs to choose.

    Will she let the battle she loves pass her by and cling to the fragile shell of humanity she hides in? Or will she embrace the name she earned and go to war again, casting away any hope of an ordinary life?

    The scars upon her run deep, memories of torment resurfacing, her feelings for the one who made her that way left in a confusing tangle. She was whole once, before everything, but now she’s not.

    Tell me, do you know what it’s like to be unmade?

    Summary

    The air was full of electricity. It usually felt good, but the pit of worry in Raven’s stomach only made him feel sick, casting a glance to Hound and turning away as he felt his face begin to burn with shame. He doesn’t know what made him think this would be any different than the last time he tried. No one ever liked this, so why would Hound? Why did he even bother bringing him out here? Because he hoped that just this once, he’d have someone who enjoyed the rain?

    His heart ached, the lightning in his belly striking his lungs and burning with the shame of thinking someone could enjoy something as silly as sitting in the rain. “I- I’m sorry. This is… Let’s head back. Sorry for dragging you out here.” He only spoke loud enough for the other to hear over the wind. How could he have been so stupid? It was silly of him, really, to cry over something like the rain.

    Or; in which Hound teaches Raven what it means to be family.

    Summary

    Have you ever felt the steady, spirited drumroll of a soldier's march? It bleeds, rumbling, into the very bones of the ground and presses into your heels at each pace, drowning out each and every wandering thought with an insistent beating akin to one's heart. It is unflinching, unwavering, unfaltering, and, even before the ominous certainty of impending suffering, it does not yield. It is the persistent single-mindedness of iron will, and yet in the same moment the hollow echo of many thousands of men and women across many centuries who have died long before it was their time. What symphony, what percussion, is more resolute than that of soldiers' feet?
    Today, under the deceptively blue sky, it was Akira's heartbeat. Her heartbeat was steady like a drummer, keeping beat. It was no fancier than a ticking clock, a metronome, an acorn falling from a mighty oak tree. It was just her heart, a stark reminder of her own mortality in the face of the dangers yet to come. Yet, she would never describe it that way. It was a reminder that she could still do something, make a difference or accomplish her dreams. It was a reminder that as long as her heart kept beating, she could save the world, win the war and maybe, just maybe...
