I'm a fighter, not a puppet warming a fancy chair.
The great Council of Unnaturals has been around since the beginning of time, each member replaced by their eldest child when the time comes.
And my mother is the head of the Oasis.
Her eldest? Well, that would be me.
But I'm not interested. I'd rather live above ground.

Every promise of the soul has innumerable fulfilments; each often. Nature, uncontainable, flowing, forelooking, in the first sentiment of kindness anticipates already a benevolence which shall lose all particular regards in its general light.

The natural association of the sentiment of love with the heyday of the blood seems to require, that in order to portray it in vivid tints, which every ...
