(Note: The following poem is loosely inspired by the 'Red and Black' song from Les Miserables.
Treat it as a trailer for what is to come in Ultramarine. WARNING: May contain spoilers :p)

RED
It is the color of the skies bearing witness this day
And the rivers of blood flowing through the fray
It is the rage that boils in each warrior's veins
And the passion which burns but ne'er wanes

BLACK
It is the sand beneath feet marching into war
And the evil that threatened and gathered them all
It is fear and doubt, lying in wait to ensnare
And the burden of suffering each soldier must bear

RED
It is her color, the queen's royal dress
She who made intrigue and cunning her crest
It is the sign of hope and a promise of aid
From she who made knowledge and wisdom her blade

BLACK
It is the color of shadows which plague and dismay
And which soon shall be scattered by the first light of day
It is the abyss that awaits to consume and to punish
He who his own downfall has furnished

RED
It is the scars every man and woman shall carry
A badge of honour, and an everlasting memory

BLACK
It is the steel of weapons forever laid to rest
As smoke finally settles, and peace reigns...at last

    I just watched an episode of Queer Eye on Netflix and two friends of the person they were making over were named Carmen and Chase. This brings me joy. ))

    @Claire Yeon, You must be seriously observant. I haven't come across either names IRL outside the context of Carmen Sandiego.

  • Claire Yeon Claire Yeon:
    I have a cousin named Carmen; I'm one of those people where when I hear a name that a family member has it sticks out. There was a kid named Chase in a class I used to teach, and I'm sure I've met others, but he's the only one I can think of off the top of my head.))

    so I live in an area where the name carmen and the name chase are both incredibly common and at one point there was one carmen and one chase in my class. one time we were called in line order in groups of two, so carmen and I were both called. the teacher blanked for a moment because my name is incredibly similar to miranda and teach was like "... Carmen Miranda. I just realized that."))

    I have an Aunt Carmen. There's also Carmen Miranda, Carmen from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, and a Wilson Phillips song called Goodbye Carmen. I had a classmate in middle school named Chase, but other than him and Chase Devineaux, never heard of it as a given name.
