Maintaining the Stability

She entered the compound, from the sewers, with a sigh. Saying that she she didn't like the sewers would be an understatement.

Resisting the urge to take a bath right away, she decided she to look around a bit more instead.

She walked around the property, checking every door and window for possible tampering, making sure that the ones that were supposed to be locked really were.

She wasn't asked to do this, and it was not part of her responsibilities, but she did them anyway. She liked the routine, having responsibility, having purpose, in what ever small amount that would be. It provided her with the stability she felt she so desperately needed.

Finally content with her inspection, she rushed to take a bath, tripping a bit on the stairs as she hastily walked down to the basement. Was a while since she took a proper bath, so she made sure to make up for it by soaking in the water for hours, making sure to change the water several times.

Feeling relaxed from her bath, she moved to the sleeping quarters, took one of the beds as her own, and crawled into it. Although she couldn't fall asleep for a while longer, she was content, imagining as she rested, about what the next few days might bring.



Lyrics:
Hidden: show
The sun rises for this morning to begin
Rays of light from the sky penetrates my skin
People passing by and no one seems to care
About the meaning of ambition in the living sphere

We all need existence in this world of haze
Fighting for acceptance in the human race
The one's with disbelief and absence of motivation
Will be neglected and that's their final destination

But if you fight, even in the darkest night
You'll see the light!

There is a chance we're gonna make it
Keep your head up high
The purpose of life, we will survive
Faster than light, we'll fight the fire
To the final day
We will lead the way
We are here to stay

When the days of life has come to an end
You'll look back in silence and finally comprehend
That every goal you achieved, missions of your might
You were alright!

There is a chance we're gonna make it
Keep your head up high
The purpose of life, we will survive
Faster than light, we'll fight the fire
To the final day
We will lead the way
We are here to stay

There is a chance we're gonna make it
Keep your head up high
The purpose of life, we will survive
Faster than light, we'll fight the fire
To the final day
We will lead the way
We are here to stay

Season 2 finale:

She was sitting on top of the Friendly Arm Inn, with a friend. It's been an uncertain amount of time since she last did that, as sometimes time really does pass strangely, indeed.

She could finally smile, like before, or close to it, but not without a price. Something she had tried the day before had left her exhausted. Weaker, but at the same time, undoubtedly wiser.

The attempt she made was not a complete success, but it was a success, still. She could feel the change, the sense of control. But she also knew that it wasn't over yet and that she would have to make another attempt, at some point in the future.

But for now she was content. Now she knew what she had to do, or at least she had an idea of ​​what to do next. She will be more prepared, for next time.

Relaxing on top of the Inn, she felt empowered. And indeed, with her recently acquired stability, and having friends she knew she could lean on, she felt there was nothing that could stop her. She knew she wasn't alone.

More fitting for the beginning, than "the end" of this, but sill a great song, and still very fitting. Feel like I should rearrange the songs a bit, but this is fine, still, Enjoy.


Lyrics:

As I walking through the shadows of the night
A black raven screams, he's ready for the fight
And I feel the change, the change from white to black
The wolf in me is going to attack

Soon, it will be the end
My life's a waste, let the morning be my friend

Above the stars there is a place called paradise
I hope that one day I will make it there, somehow
But with this creature in me living its own life
I'm not sure I'll have the right to have a peaceful afterlife

It all starts again, the evil voices in my head
They are here to stay when the night is closing in
As a thunderstorm, blazing fire in the sky
Takes me to the danger zone, I wonder why

Without a halo on my head
I hope the morning light will save me once again

Above the stars there is a place called paradise
I hope that one day I will make it there, somehow
But with this creature in me living its own life
I'm not sure I'll have the right to have a peaceful afterlife

Without a halo on my head
I hope the morning light will save me once again

Takes me to the danger zone
Without a halo on my head

I'm not sure I'll have the right to have a peaceful afterlife

Above the stars there is a place called paradise
I hope that one day I will make it there, somehow
But with this creature in me living its own life
I'm not sure I'll have the right to have a peaceful afterlife

Above the stars there is a place called paradise
I hope that one day I will make it there, somehow
But with this creature in me living its own life
I'm not sure I'll have the right to have a peaceful afterlife

Short season, but with a fitting end. A roll was made, and the change followed. For better or for worse, it is hard to say... just kidding, is for the better!

Thank you all, and have a Merry Christmas, and the most wonderful holiday time!

Revisiting the Roof - spin off

She landed on the ground, from the roof, with surprising ease, and dashed into the nearby alley, without loosing breath.

Turning back at the roof, and the pair on it, she felt conflicted. She loved her friends, there was no doubt about that. But, love, of any kind, can easily turn into jelousy.

Remembering the past few years, the relationship that she had with them, she felt sad. She was happy for them, at their discovery of something greater than friendship. But, at the same time, that made her feel pushed aside, unwanted, a nuisance, a third wheel.

She was afraid to confront them about how she felt. On how she truly felt. So she decided just to smile at them, pushing her pain deep inside her.

Concealed in the shadows of the alley, she waited, as people would walk past her, not even noticing her. It was easy to hide, for someone as small as her.

Her ears twitched, at the barely noticeable sound, sound of someone trying not to be heard.

"Well done, to notice me, boy." the voice addressed her, as the turned at the man, reaching for her daggers.



Lyrics:
Hidden: show
We're not indestructible
Baby, better get that straight
I think it's unbelievable
How you give in to the hands of fate

Some things are worth fighting for
Some feelings never die
I'm not askin' for another chance
I just wanna know why

There's no easy way out
There's no shortcut home
There's no easy way out
Givin' in can't be wrong

I don't wanna pacify you
I don't wanna drag you down
But I'm feelin' like a prisoner
Like a stranger in a no name town

I see all the angry faces
Afraid that could be you and me
Talkin' about what might have been
I'm thinkin' about what it used to be

There's no easy way out
There's no shortcut home
There's no easy way out
Givin' in can't be wrong

Baby, baby, we can shed this skin
We can know how we feel inside
Instead of goin' down an endless road
Not knowin' if we're dead or alive

Some things are worth fightin' for
Some feelings never die
I'm not askin' for another chance
I just wanna know why

There's no easy way out
There's no shortcut home
There's no easy way out
Givin' in, givin' in can't be wrong, no

There's no easy way out (there's no easy way out)
There's no shortcut home (there's no shortcut home)
There's no easy way out (there's no easy, no easy, no easy way out)
There's no easy way out (there's no easy way out)
There's no shortcut home (there's no shortcut home)
There's no easy way out (there's no easy, no easy, no easy way out)

There's no easy way out
There's no shortcut home
There's no easy way out
Givin' in can't be wrong, no

Meeting the Boy

She was shaking in the cold night, in a small alley, somewhere. Frightened and hungry, she could barely understand the world around her, its rules and purposes, its meaning, as it would be expected from a small child.

Not being the only child around there without shelter, made her think it was normal. She depended on others for food and what ever clothing she could get, to prevent her from freezing to death. There was always something given to her, every day, from various people, but none of them wanted to take full responsibility for her, a homeless child.

A smell of freshly baked bread reached her, and she raised head to take a point blank stare at a still warm loaf of bread.

"You hungry? Want some?" a voice asked, that belonged to a boy holding the bread, barely few years older than her, but much larger.

She hastily took the bread, knowing that hesitation could only lead to an empty belly, and started to eat diligently, looking at certain shape on the boy's buckle.

The boy chuckled: "Easy there. Nobody is going to steal that from you. I will protect you." The boy stood there, watching over her as she ate.

"I am Jason" the boy said.

Looking at the same spot, and seemingly not listening, she attempted "Dee..." before she started to choke on the bread she was still chewing.

The boy jumped to her aid. Few awkward moments later, she did manage to spit out her potential cause of death.

The boy let out a sigh of relief. "Well, nice to meet you, Dee! Come, let’s go and find someplace warm." the boy smiled, with his hand reaching out to her.



Lyrics:
Hidden: show
Take my hand
For eternity my friend
Just you and I, you and I

The days getting darker
A dead end road to conquer
A life out of order
Can't hold it anymore
Like the eyes of a monster
Longing for the nighttime
The mind of a fighter
Ready for the fall

There is a place that I want you to know
Together forever just go

Take my hand
I'll take it to the promised wonderland
Where the rivers meets the clear blue sea
In a perfect harmony just you and me
Take my hand
I'll take you to the promised wonderland
Together we will fly so high
For eternity my friend just you and I

A heart full of fire, a heat within your soul
A burning desire that wants to lose control

The wind from the sky, forever will blow
Don't be afraid just let go!

Take my hand
I'll take it to the promised wonderland
Where the rivers meets the clear blue sea
In a perfect harmony just you and me
Take my hand
I'll take you to the promised wonderland
Together we will fly so high
For eternity we'll live just you and I

Take my hand
I'll take it to the promised wonderland
Where the rivers meets the clear blue sea
In a perfect harmony just you and me
Take my hand
I'll take you to the promised wonderland
Together we will fly so high
For eternity my friend just you and I

You and I, I'll take you to the promised wonderland
I'll take you to the promised wonderland
Take my hand
I'll take you to the promised wonderland
Just you and I, you and I

Facing the Mirror

She sighed, entering the baths, and carefully folding her festive garments. Was long and exhausting night, but she was glad she went there.

Several things happened, and she was contemplating on them, as she was soaking in the tub. Events that happened, people she saw, names she heard.

She was close to fall asleep there, in the tub, but her head submerged for a moment, offering a quick and a bit unpleasant waking up.

Slightly annoyed, she got up, covered herself with a bathrobe and went for the sleeping chambers. On the way, she passed next to a mirror, and made a sudden stop. Making sure nobody was around, she revealed her robes, and took a long look at the mirror, with a frown. Moving her hand along her body, and following it in mirror's reflection, she wasn't pleased at what she saw, resisting the urge to smash the mirror into pieces.

Eventually, her gaze went up to her face, still with her mask on. Hesitating, she removed the mask, and took a long stare at the face looking back at her.

She was standing there, motionlessly and in silence, for hard to tell how long, until the chatter from the outside startled her, when she ran up the stairs and crawled into her bed.



Lyrics:
Hidden: show
Oh yeah

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who's the greatest of them all?
I'm the master of illusion
Welcome to my mad delusion
I'm the one who makes the rules
For the heroes and the fools
I can tear down angels from the sky
And make Mona Lisa cry

Oh
You can hear the weeping violins
Long before the bitter end begins
Oh
You can see the strings and puppeteer
Before the dusk will make them disappear

The game is over (the game is over)
No more rounds to play, it's time to pay
Who's got the joker?
The game is over
Who's got the joker
To kill the lies and make your heart recall
There's no other sky to fall

Oh oh
Oh yeah

The dominoes of greed
Are falling for your endless needs
You're the master of illusion
Lost in your sad delusion
Every time you roll the dice
We're the ones who pay the price
While the oceans boil for your games
You just feed the flames

Oh
You can hear the weeping violins
Long before the bitter end begins
Oh
You can see the strings and puppeteer
Before the dusk will make them disappear

The game is over (the game is over)
No more rounds to play, it's time to pay
Who's got the joker?
The game is over
Who's got the joker
To kill the lies and make your heart recall
There's no other sky to fall

Oh and you will ask
"Which one am I? Am I dead or still alive?"
Reflections of the real fade
The stranger in the mirror remains
Can you hear the weeping violins
And cut the strings before the end begins?

The game is over (the game is over)
No more rounds to play, it's time to pay
Who's got the joker?
The game is over
Who's got the joker?
We are the ones, we hold the cards (we hold the cards)
There's no other sky to fall

Reigniting the Purpose

She was standing in the shadows, in the forest, somewhere. Observing the familiar shapes from a distance, she felt conflicted.

With a sigh, she revisited the dreams she had been having...or rather, their absence. From pleasant dreams to nightmares, from those without logic to those full of meaning, dreams became part of her comfort. And, now, they were gone, completely, and for a while now.

That filled her with doubt. And fear. She was happy, for the most part, with her current situation, so she wondered... why was this happening?

She frowned, as she thought about her Oath and all the other promises and plans she had made. When was the last time she did anything about any of them? Did she ever? Has anything she ever done had any meaning or produced any result? Has she become too laid back and... lazy? Was she ever as hard working as she thought she was?

She had her doubts about what could be the trigger for this doubt, and she wasn't about to let herself be caught off guard again… but even there she didn't make any progress for a while. She was stuck in a place, losing sight of her purpose.

"I have to do something. Finish, at least something. So many... loose ends..."

With a trembling hand holding onto her sword, and one last glance at the shapes nearby, she slowly turned and walked deeper into the forest.



Lyrics:
Hidden: show
Sometimes I feel like I am running forever
Wish I knew a way that was much better
But one thing I know is they never say never
So when I'm back I fight you forever

Paradise is based a long way from here
You're a parasite, you will never walk there
Kings and governments are everywhere
You will find out that nobody cares

Victory or Death are walking together
Evil and demise victory or Death
Which one will choose me? No more empathize

I grew up in darkness loneliness and pain
But I fought me free 'Cause it was insane
Now I beg you hard to follow your brain
And don't put that (#2) into your vain

You hide in the shadows
Your seek out the scared
You push them to madness and total despair
I'm ready to fight you and never look back
To the day that I die
Or the sunlight turns back

Victory or Death are walking together
Evil and demise victory or Death
Which one will choose me? No more empathize

(As we were walking)
(through the valley of death)
(We were blinded)
(by the fear we had inside us)
(As the sunlight were rising over the horizon)
(We decided to never look back)

Victory or Death are walking together
Evil and demise victory or Death
Which one will choose me? No more empathize

Victory or Death are walking together
Victory or Death which one will choose me?

Adjusting the Perspective

With a blank stare, she sat next to a fresh, unmarked, barely noticeable grave. She made sure, to follow the instructions given by the Man, to the letter. The nature will shortly claim over the spot, and nobody would even know.

What was he, to her? A mentor? For sure, the Man taught her a lot, over the past months. A lover? No, that never seemed to be the nature of their relationship, and even if it were, she would not be ready for it. A fatherly figure..? The last thought kept lingering in her mind, poking at the wound she never knew she had.

She was sad, and angry, mostly at herself. She was late, she failed. When he needed her, she was not there.

Her thoughts went to the last words the Man said to her: "Don't blame yourself, N****, take what you learned, and protect the others close to you. I am... at peace... don't worry, things will fall in it's place... with time..."

"Protect the others..." she whispered to herself, wiping the tears from her cheeks. With a sigh, she removed the veil from her face, and reached for the gift the Man prepared for her, an irregular, but perfectly fitting mask.

Adjusting to a new perspective, she payed her last respects to the Man, reached for her bags and a pair of blades left to her, and walked away in silence.



Lyrics:
Hidden: show
Night or Day, the Light doesn't matter
Pleasure or Pain, it's always a Battle
Kill or be killed
the Choice that you got is your own

The Wind and Sky, always together
private Eye, tougher than Leather
the Stars above,
will help you to guide you the Way

The urban Warrior, the Fighter you will meet
brings the Justice back, brings the Justice to the Streets

Woooaaawooooooo

[Chorus]
This is the Life of our warrior,
running through the neon Lights, a Warrior

For Life in Glory, he will conquer all.
Always finds a way, through the Masquerade of Time

The Concrete Maze, he'll never surrender
hard as Stone, brings you the Power
leaving the Light and enters the Danger Zone

A righteous Hero in the concrete he will be
brings the Justice back, brings the Justice to the Streets

Woooaaawooooooo

[Chorus x2]
This is the Life of our warrior,
running through the neon Lights, a Warrior

For Life in Glory, he will conquer all.
Always finds a way, through the Masquerade of Time
