Character(s): Smoke, allusions to the Shadow King
Rating: PG 
Word count: 133

A/N: This is about a rather curious and elusive creature, who seems to be rather shy unless she's doing something reluctantly heroic. 


She runs, the wind at her back, dark hair fluttering like a tattered banner.



Slim legs pound against ebon sand, pushing the not-human's body to its limit and further. Desperation and purpose, a dangerous combination, running together like life-blood.


The box shimmers, faintly opaque despite the starless night, from underneath her crooked arm. In the Dark Lands the sky is strangely absent of illumination: there is no sun, no moon or stars. There is nothing but the Shadow that Drowns, and the ghost of a promise of something more ...one day...someday...


Never
, if things are not taken in hand.



A resolute figure, eyes narrowed, makes her way to the Border, to the line that even he may not cross, carrying with her a precious burden that holds the key to a nation's salvation.

I like Smoke --I like her name, I like her persona, even though I know next to nothing about her at the moment, and I rather like that she did a very self-less thing despite being scared shitless of the inevitable (and they will happen,eventually) consequences.

She is my hero for today. Yay!
