(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

Sometimes we are so focused on the treasure we are seeking, that we fail to see the one right in front of us
Joe Kerr wrote on Patty's profile.
Is it weird that when someone said "things that glitter" my first thought was you?
At times, when we're so focused on 'who' we are, we forget 'where' we are.

    Most intangible boundaries tend to be somewhat arbitrary.

    So I take it you don't indulge in petty crime like pickpocketing and whatnot?
    Quote Link
  • Yul B. Sorry Yul B. Sorry:
    I know what your going to say: why stealing? Well l was force into this way of life due to everything money and not choosing to be poor and in a homeless shetler. My family and friends have abandoned me. And so l saw Carmen on tv. Her superior stealing skills and how she gets away from ACME. I wanted to be just like her to escape the careless outside world and steal and get away with it. I want to join her crew of VILE Henchmen. I know them all. Double Trouble, Vic The Slick, Eartha Brute, Patty Larceny.......

    Not quite the direction I was going, but insightful none the less.

  • Yul B. Sorry Yul B. Sorry:
    Oh well, l did pickpocket and steal people's belongings. Like their fast food dinners and groceries. The Double Trouble twins taught me that during my training. But now, its Carmen's turn to train me to steal the world's treasures and landmarks etc etc.
