New Game: Delivery!

I know I promised this over a year ago…and now I can finally deliver on it! (No pun intended.)

FoxFireFiction’s first browser game is up and running! Though some additional site modifications will have to take place before I can embed this properly into the page itself, for now you can click on the below link to get started. (Only supported for desktop/laptop computers for now, unfortunately.)

All They Had

He looked at her. He saw her careworn face, her red hair bound up and starting to lose its shine with the onset of her age… He imagined what life could’ve been like, if it was her hand he had held at the summer gala…

This piece was a response to a short writing prompt: write a dialogue in which the two characters are almost having a big fight, but not quite. I chose Tyrric and Mirium for this scene as that’s something they often do! What came out of it isn’t quite a dialogue, but I’m happy with how it illustrates the ongoing tension between them.

As far as canon goes, this scene would’ve been set roughly before Keelath returned from the dead but while Tyrric was still dating Alelsa. It’s not entirely accurate to that timeline though, mostly because I wanted to write a scene that was self-contained –one you could pick up and read without knowing anything about the rest of Sunwalker lore. So, enjoy it as a illustrative piece if not a completely factual one!

Author’s Note

“Lord Tyrric, we really need to talk about your taste in horses.”

Tyrric looked up from the handwritten ledgers spread across his desk. Mirium was standing across from him, hands on her hips, in that “I’m about to make some trouble” kind of way that always set his heart racing.

“Yes. Ah. What about?” he answered, calmly enough despite his distraction. Continue reading “All They Had”

“…Nothing in My Life Worth Honoring…”

This was originally a project for a class that I cleaned up a little more to post here. It depicts Vivec, a god-king from the Elder Scrolls universe, talking (singing) to Shizzal, an original character of mine who I haven’t yet introduced to my blog here.

The audio is from the song “Through Heaven’s Eyes”, which comes from the Dreamworks movie “Prince of Egypt”. Though the context and some of the lyrics (“rescued Tziporah from Egypt!”) are obviously not fitting with the Elder Scrolls universe, the tone and voices I thought fit well with the characters and the relationship that Shizzal, and perhaps many of Vivec’s priests and Buoyant Armigers, have with Him.

Let me know if the video clip doesn’t load properly for you! Unlike some of the other videos found on this blog, this one is hosted directly on this website, rather than being embedded through YouTube, and I ran into some issues uploading it.

This post is NSFW (Not Safe For Work) due graphic scenes related to childbirth and sex. More on the level of PG-13 than R I think, but you hath been warned! Continue reading “(NSFW) And Then There Were Three”

The Second War

Even before the Farstrider turned towards her, his mouth a line of regret, before Tyrric gave a ragged cry and dashed forward, Mirium knew. Mirium knew, and suddenly her world would never be the same.

I had written this many months before, but the dramatic wording of it caused me to not post it until I could go back and edit the tone down a little. Months later, the tone isn’t edited down by more than a few word changes, but I’m calling it good enough to post despite my misgivings.

Though not an exhaustive look at the Sunwalkers’ doings during the Second War of the Warcraft universe, this hits the major happenings: Keelath’s death, Evelos’ departure south to join the Alliance, and Mirium’s downward spiral into losing her Light magic.

Author’s Note

Evelos tossed and turned. The grief was still too raw, sharp edged, and his mind fled from it Continue reading “The Second War”
