Third Hero The first, second, then third- myself. Always compared to those before me; "Arisu, why can't you be strong like your father, brave like your brother?" Sometimes I swore the Elders hated me. I get an idea, they turn it down. I formulate a strategy, there's a better way to enact it. I tend to be right about battle matters eighty percent of the time, but, because of the other twenty, I am ignored.
"Think like Masahiko." How, pray tell, do I think like a dead man? Especially one who never cared to give me the time of day, even whilst he was alive? "Fury isn't becoming on a leader.", they scold towards my enraged face. "Well, if you're so smart," I mutter to myself, "then why am I the Hero?"
I know the answer to my question, of course; it is because Masahiko my brother was the rightful heir, he being older than I, but his death and lack of successor put me in his place. It is not traditional, of course, that a woman would be Hero, even if
Watchers' Feature+ GiveawayI want to start off by saying thank you to my watchers (all 74 of you! ). Though I don't really know how to express it, I really am grateful for every single one of you.
As I have mentioned before, I'm going to be holding a 50 giveaway (for my WATCHERS ONLY) as a small token of my appreciation.
Absolutely nothing, besides be my watcher. You don't have to anything, you don't have to write a journal, comment NOTHING. As my watcher, you are already entered (like it or not! )

12.20.2012I walk along an empty street;
Everyone is hiding.
It can't be true that the world is ending-
Or is it?
Confused, I take another left-
Still, no one there.
I let out a sigh and watch my breath gather.
The cold is eating me alive.
The crunching of my boots on the sparkling snow-
The only sound to be heard.
A bustling city turned into a ghost town,
All because of some ancient quacks?
But then a voice, muffled by wind.
My eyes move on from him.
I was never one to humor the crazy.
"Get a job; you're gonna wish you had one,
When the world DOESN'T end."
He yells unprintable words, flailing violently.
His words don't faze me.
The world can't end yet,
I don't want to be alone.
If ever my secret gift failed me,
I don't know what I'd do.
Three wishes in return for a good deed,
Almost, but not quite.
When asked one thing that I could wish for,
I wished I'd never die.
Sleepless NightsEver since he left, I've been a mess.
Why can't I sleep?
Something about it just doesn't make sense.
Maybe if I turn over....
Where did he go?
How about some earplugs?
Why did he go?
Maybe if I ate something....
He never acted like anything was wrong....
Warm milk might help.
Maybe it was something I said.
A couple extra blankets....
But I was so careful to be nice....
I bet he met someone else.
Maybe if I watched some TV....
She's probably gorgeous.
Read a few chapters of a book....
If only I was prettier....
Ooh, this is too scary.
But he always said I was so beautiful....
Perhaps a magazine....
He must have been lying.
This isn't helping.
Should I call him?
Maybe some music....
No; that would be awkward.
Taylor Swift needs to write some h
Art-Collaborations Contest Winners- FEATURE|Watch Me|My Gallery|My Scraps|My Stats|My Watchers|Music-Based Challenge|
BKLH362 and ChisSweetArt
Okay, as promised, here's my feature for the winners of Art-Collaborations photomanipulate contest. Let me start by saying that these are two very amazing artists who deserved to win, and absolutely so over me .
First up, the first place winner, :iconbklh362:.
Her winning piece-
My absolute and utter fave (because I'm just that obsessed with the Hunger Games)-
Crystal ClearI need you, but I don't,
I want to love you, but I won't.
You've cut me far too deep,
And the tears gather at my feet.
They say that loving you is insane;
Every ounce of you is bane.
You beat me down by smear,
But only with you can I see crystal clear.
We fight, attempt to defend,
When there's still so much left to amend.
You're all I need to remedy,
But I fight you out breathlessly.
If loving you is so wrong,
Why can't I seem to move on?
I dive in, only to drown,
I get back up, only to be cut down.
Through all of this, I must confess,
Though all you do to me is depress,
I run back to you with my barely mended heart,
Begging for you to tear it apart.
I wish I didn't need you,
But in the end I know I do;
I promise to suffer through the pain,
As long as you love me, with you I'll always remain.
Hearts of glass that break just as easily,
Take a chance, and look through them, and experience my clarity.
Look close, beneath the film of enmity,
Once you see li
