Thoughts on Family and Friends
Cecily's thoughts on
family and friends
Fletcher:"Don't get me wrong. I knew Fletcher was a
treacherous little bastard, but until now, I though he was treacherous
only to his own ends. "
"It seems somehow odd that the only one I
am convinced of is Fletcher. While he always seems the most
unreliable, in that crazed maniac sort of way, he's also the only
one who's made clear his stand on current events. I realize I'm
just a means to an end for him, but his honesty and sincere desire
to make something of this gives me some heart. "
Griffin:"I get the feeling that there is a lot more
to our merry bard than he may ever let on. I wonder if there's
something else he's searching for, other than his father?"
Hakthla:"Hakthla is of a class of Elder demons known as
Beholders; demons with a third eye that allows then to see into the souls
of others, and use what they see to then lure the victims in. They then
feed on the soul, and gain sustenance and power through it it. Well,
usually. Hakthla, though, is probably pretty hungry by now, since I took
his oculous about three years ago. And there are few things crankier than
a half-starved demon."
Harrison: "He's always been a constant in my life,
the one solid thing I've always had to count on. I'm more than
capable of taking care of myself, and really, in recent years, I've
found myself keeping an eye on him more than him watching over
me. But I've never tried to fathom what it would be like not having
him. I subconsciously took him at his word, that he'd never leave,
that he'd always be there for me."
Jasper:"Because there was a boy who died a horrible
death because I took some stupid risks, and I can't seem to get his
blood off my hands."
Lachesis:"Maybe it was time to go seek out Lachesis,
but there still might be answers closer to home.
At least I hoped so. I'm not sure I can face her yet.
Not knowing she's my mother."
Luke:"Arrogant, sneaky, and he can cook, too. No
wonder he irritates me."
"There's something very comfortable about Luke. Maybe it's because we
share a certain recklessness and arrogance.
Maybe I just like him more than I'm willing to admit..."
Matthias:"His face reflected the weariness I had seen
in the set of his shoulders, and those blue eyes were sad and
worn. He wasn't old, or at least didn't look old, other than that
sense of old beyond his years. I couldn't help but wonder who he
was, and what thoughs bore down on him so hard."
Salome:"Even Salome was sobered by his news, and for
just a moment her grief peeked through that bad-ass demeanor that
so gets on my nerves. It made her seem a little more human, a
little less like the enemy I'd pegged her for since day one. I
still don't trust her, but I guess, maybe, I can understand her a
Shenrakari:"Shen is both mysterious and
mystified. He, out of all, seems the most a stranger in a strange
land. And yet, he has managed to hold on to this air of serenity,
even in the most chaotic of moments. I envy him that, I think. I've
never really felt disjointed in my life, but I know I've never been
as grounded in myself as Shen does."
Stark:"[Stark]'s a sweet girl, but she's got to learn
to either stop hooking up with weirdos, or stop taking it so
personally when they go off the deep end."
"Sometimes talking with Stark is unnerving; you meander through a
conversation, and just when you're lulled into complacency, she drops some
sort of sharp observation that leaves you flailing for a reponse."
