The Phoenix Sonata - Chapter 1Welcome to our world ! Blissed with magical essence, here live many kinds you would consider Legends or myths, and for now in peace.
A truly enchanting world, leaves are tinted in an incandescent orange peculiar to autumn, reflecting the rim light of the sun falling beyond the horizon.
And I'm here, looking at this marvelous scenary, sitting on a twirling cloud seeking for a shelter to spend the night and rest from my long travel.
Who am I ? Good question, my name is Phoena and although I seem to be Phoenix, I'm not exactly one...
There, between some crooked trees in the forest bellow, seem to be a ruined house. Desperate to rest and Artemis starting to show herself I decide to get down my cloud and go take a look.
It is amazingly dusty, probably abandonned for decennies, with the wall slowly falling appart and a crooked unstable looking bed, still let's try i- *crash*
P: Of course it'd fall apart, stupid !
From the point I've fallen, I can notice a small box. I

To Rise, First You Must Burn :: PART I 'To rise, first you must burn.'
"Have you ever seen the sea--?" Kathy's voice carries an interesting lilt, it's musical in a way, nearly shrill. Suited very much to her cattish nature. Phoena glances up at the inquiry. The Faerie is facing away from the Phoenix, and in the dim light of the fire, Phoena can see the fur of her cloak. (Idly, she notes to herself that it looks soft.) With that note in mind, she turns her attention back to the fire she's nursing to roaring life.
"Why?" She answers, noncommital and short.
"I wanna see the ocean. You're a bird, right Phoena? You've traveled a lot-- have you seen the ocean? Have you seen what's beyond the ocean...?" And the pale silver tail swishes against the grass, her knees tucked up agai
The Phoenix Sonata contest entryCloudy days
I don’t like cloudy days. Most people don’t I guess. I like it when it rains, which may be surprising for a phoenix, but I do. The rain nourishes the land, washes away the dirt and dust, and leaves everything bright and vibrant. Walking in nature after a good rain storm is so refreshing, everything thriving under the sun, the scents and sights so fresh. But cloudy days are all the darkness without the nourishment.
Kathy and Rain are out collecting supplies before we head to the next town. It’s so quiet without them. Kathy can’t seem to go five minutes without making some kind of comment or staking her claim to me, and Rain always feels he needs to clarify what we’re going to do next. It’s really annoying, but we’ve been traveling togeather long enough that I’m used to it.
I wonder what it’ll be like when we go our separate ways. Less food for certain, no nice inns and quality supplie
Not counted as entries but as bonus:
( because they lack 1 critera from the rules )
In Fire, LIFEAnd in the fire I saw her face,
Swirling, living, full of grace,
She danced for me, she lived, she flew,
And in the night she gave that up too,
For come the morning her song would cry,
"I've given up, I've come to die"
But the Phoenix sighs, death is no strife,
No matter how many times, she comes back to life.
