:bulletblack: Thank You

I was recently low on funds and my premium on my mirz-alt account was running out.  Endorell-Taelos and JamminJo were kind enough to gift me subscriptions.  Here is a thank-you feature.  Be sure to check out these lovely artists.

When Worlds Collide - Chapter 1 - Arrival
  A strong wind blew in from the north. The Black Torrent shivered and pulled his cape around himself. For a late May evening, it was unseasonably cold. The change of weather had come on quite suddenly and it almost seemed there was something more in the air than a mere chill. Breaking into a run, he hoped the movement would warm him. He darted to the edge of the building and leapt over to the next rooftop. As his feet hit the slate, a buzzing came from his belt. He pulled out the small communicator, recognizing the code for Officer Derek Blake. He switched on the device.
 "Torrent here."
 "Hey, we were wondering if you could come down to Fifth and Clark. We have a kid here and we're not sure what to do with her."
 Glancing at his watch, he grimaced. It was nearly 2 a.m. "I'm not covering that area tonight," he said, even though he was already heading to the location.

Moon and Stars Journal Skin by Endorell-Taelos Fragility by Endorell-Taelos :thumb297547519: Rose der Nacht by Endorell-Taelos Luciana's LamentI feel only you,
I see only you,
I hear only you.
As the darkness creeps around me,
It threatens to suffocate.
Never enough to just take my innocence,
You turned me into something
… I never wanted to know.
For all the things you've done, for your own greed,
Never once thought about your own child
Fragile as a porcelain doll,
now broken once more.
I dream about a world,
where I am free again.
It was never my fault.
I can still taste the blood
Of the many innocent souls,
It shouldn't have ever been like this.
Will I ever be pure once more?
I cry from the pain you put me through.
I cry as I carry the weight of the world on my shoulders.
It never should have been this way,
And it was all because of you.
