You are perfect - Dzenifér Uralkodó
« on: July 09, 2023, 04:45:51 PM »
"I'm sorry- I should have been here more."

"No, you're well. He's grown up so much. He is so much like you."

A look of immense distance- A chasm impassable.

"I would hope not."

A look of passionate hurt.

"Can you not accept yourself as better of us, for once? You're so busy, so often working-"

A hand takes hers, and she gently pushes her forehead to the other woman's. Her hand caresses' where an arm once was, and sorrow consumes her.

"No. I couldn't-- Because you're perfect."

YOUR TIME IS LIMITED. FORBIDDEN KNOWLEDGE YOU KEEP- YOUR FLESH ROTS AWAY. THE INCONCIEVABLE NATURE OF YOUR DILEMMA SITS BEFORE YOU.

FREEDOM COMES AT A COST, BUT ALL COSTS ARE TOO GREAT. YOU WILL BE TRAPPED FOREVER. THE PAST IS EVER-PRESENT, DOOMED TO REPEAT.

THE SUN SMILES AT YOU WITH ETERNAL MALICE. YOU HAVE THE SOUL OF AN EMPEROR.

SACRIFICIAL HERO. BLESSED BY PRIMORDIAL LUCK.

YOUR FRIENDS ARE IN HELL YET YOU SMILE.



The mask of self-deception was no longer a mask for me, it was a part of me.

"Do you think of it much?"

"Maybe. I do not know. Do you?"

Her gaze is a million roads away, and you could always see it for the last time. You are the enemy to all, hero to few. A footnote in history. A scholar beyond saving.

"I love you."

Her rotting corpse gazes back into her eyes. It is just like Berez. Friends imprisoned by daemons and fiends, in miles of agony- Dying, living, and decaying again. Before her, lies the great daemon of them all with no chance of pact-- Time. Ever-turning, only remaining on a loose chain to remind her how much of it passes. How much breath she has remaining.

"I didn't want this."

Her gaze is still felt, even in the journey of a distance, amongst rows and rows of agony- She holds the hand of the child, the only legacy that remains of you.

"Haven't you done enough? Can't you come home? Be a parent?"

What remains of the soul shreds apart. Guilt on all sides- No matter what you serve, you feel treason within your infected marrow. To disobey the purpose of your existence for love, or to love war with no comforting hand?

"I've come too far."

Red mist, red fog, red haze. Landscape of the desert itself, a memorial to your hatred.

"There is nothing past the threshhold, Dzenifér. No matter how you look at it, you will not see it for yourself."

"Stop."

The same haze- The same notion of holding the locket of your lover with the rare picture you have of her. Artistry, beauty. She is perfect in every single way. She would tell you the same thing. The looming figure. Him. The representative of all guilt and the unknowing, the gatekeeper of forbidden knowledge and ancient evil. Guilt, agony, and falsehood. The only power he has is within your mind, yet you lose the battle. Loss is what you are. It is the only thing which had made you strong.

"There is no secret made for you. Still no revelation, Uralkodó. You grow old, and brittle, soon. You fight a battle unwinnable in your form."

"I gave away a portion for the power necessary-"

The echoing halls of the marble courtroom are slammed with an invisible gavel, and the waves of sound are ear-piercing. Every eye is set upon her. Judgement of generations before and after her.

"You have read the knowledge. You know of the theory. You are born to suffer- The home you fight for is made to suffer by the hands of forces beyond you. It is hapless, even if you dedicate such power. You must wear a mask, yet claim power."

She tries reasoning with the presence of looming hatred- But everything is muddled. Color drains, except for him, and eventually, even Him-

"You can't break the cycle.

You can't escape.

You can't fulfill your promise."

You, sir, should unmask.

Indeed?

Indeed, it’s time. We all have laid aside disguise but you.

I wear no mask.



...no mask?

"I dream of endless red-- Hatred in my bones. Eternal life, out of my grasp. It is all so imperfect. If I had time, I could discover everything. Figure out everything. Know everything. I could do what I was finally meant to do. Liberate all countries. Unite all flags.

Ensure my love is forever."


There's a pause in the hallowed halls, and the cloaked figure seems to look upon her with confusion.

"There is never a word I say that you choose to hear, Monarch."

Place me in my casket tonight
Because I'm already dying inside
Pale skin so cold to the touch
Like a rose in bloom when we blush

Dark eyes meet under the sky
The stars are out were alive in the night
My hollow heart finds it too hard to trust
We're all alone until we turn back to dust...

Ki tudja ölel-e a két karom?
Ki tudja csókol-e szád, galambom?
Ki tudja mely napon, mely hajnalon
Indul a század továb?

There are worse things than dying, Bela. I wake up most mornings and I want it. I hope for it.



No, but you know that, don't you? Waking up, believing you shouldn't still be here. There's something in your eyes that says it. We're both like it, and just are afraid to admit. There is a strength we must show.

Our people go to war again, darling. There is a violence inside of me. One that bubbles and rises when I look certain men in the eye, and I realize that I cannot help but hate. It is a curse. A malice. A harsh reality I should have seen sooner. But that's just it, isn't it? It's kept me alive. Kept me sharp. Kept me good at the worst of it.

If they want the General, here I will be.

I love you, Elias.

You will be stronger than me, my son. A monarch. Uralkodó. The right to rule the future will be yours.

"The men are gathered- We have survived with almost no losses despite all odds, and yet, I do not feel fully satisfied.

Things are brewing, changing- Even around the fire, I see it, and I see the look in some of their eyes. When some look into the dark, they change and fidget. This is not like me. I have looked into it too often, perhaps. Two tours would do this.

We are safe where we are, and I have nobody barking up my back about being out of country. All is well, all things considered, even if Valentin and I have a score to settle. Does he think himself the superior mage? Maybe he even thinks himself something of an educated man. Would he be up to snuff in comparison to what I could do?

It is hard to say, and no matter what it is done, it cannot be a fair fight. Not for him, anyways. Four men is all it took to kill thirty-five Wachter and Von Zarovich. Four. Not one permanently dead or captured. Will it inevitably be our undoing, to be so significant? Untrustworthy to our own people, involved in witchery and such grand warfare?

Absolutely. But where there is a man postured for the future, there is hope, yet. I may not be Lord Regent, but I will ensure that a man like him will live on."


"You intend to live forever."
