Where the Willow Walks ~ (11/7/17)

"Down by the water, under the willow, sits a lone ranger minding the willow.
He and his wife once lived happily, planted a seed that grew through the reeds."
"Willow" - Jasmine Thompson


This is the tale of Adriel and Theran - two names often heard whispered in tall creation tales but brushed away by many in Atalan to be silly folklore. Many believed Adriel and Theran to be two original gods of varying relation (siblings and rivals the most common); some think them to be silly children's stories to teach of morality. One book published by a rogue historian challenged all of the previous assumptions declaring Adriel and Theran lovers across ages that created a stir among the masses until it was discredited and shoved to the public as romantic nonsense. Yet what many had yet to realize was that the truth was much closer than they thought.

Where the Willow Walks is a story I've been working on for the past ~7 to 8 months and exclusively for the past 3(ish). It's a standalone story that takes place in Atalan, the world of all of my stories (The Reapers, Song of the Nightingale, and Factions).I've worked really, really hard on this story, and there's a lot of editing and personal artwork put into it. This story has a lot of dark images on a dark background so mobile viewing may be more difficult. Any feedback is greatly appreciated!

02 ~ Adriel and Theran

In a way, Theran was Adriel's strength and stability, and Adriel was Theran's will and heart.

Thank you so much! I've been giving myself a little break between this last chapter and the next, but it should be up soon! SimNaNoWriMo kicks my butt into gear! :whome: I'm so flattered that you like it though! My stories are my babies and I love when people love them too!

Author's Note - With this chapter, I have achieved gold for SimNoWriMo! :bounce: :celebration: :drinks: :party: :whistle: :whome: And WHAT a chapter to end on too. Full warning and disclosure - this is an intensely emotional chapter. I fully admit to crying my eyes out like a little baby writing, editing, and finishing this chapter. A big thank you to @Blamsart for the French help; and to both her and @mpart for their consistent support. The story is FAR from over, of course, but this chapter... just did me in emotionally and I'm SUPER proud of it. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did writing and rereading it. :heart:

Hi Michelle! Thanks! I loved chapter 8, even though there were parts of it that still broke my heart. I had no good place to end it so I worried it got a little meandering... :shifty:

Author's Note - So this chapter comes from a very familiar, deep, and dark place in my life. When I was in the darkest point of my life, I was 16, not unlike Robert. I went through a very traumatic situation that left me torn open for a very long time and would lead me into a horrible depression and PTSD. It would take me years before I could see the light at the end of the tunnel, but I'm finally there.
This chapter is long, heavy, and follows the mind of someone suicidal.
The point of this chapter isn't to glorify it, but to show the gritty realness that many people face each day. To those of the world who have thought about, or actually committed, suicide: you are not alone. I hope you never forget that.
