A Pleasant Haze

It was in the middle of the torrential onslaught that the thought finally occurred to him – he had never seen her angry before. Well, not like this, at any rate; this anger, this ferociousness was so foreign to him. Not even with Ganondorf, not even then had he seen this facet of her nature; then, she had been determined, fierce, yes, but it wasn’t anger so much as sheer determination and hope that had driven her in battle. He mused that she simply wasn’t one to succumb to her temper. She did, after all, radiate a sense of serene tranquility; she was stable, sure, and calm. Though, in her present state, she was none of those things. She was frantic and emotional and positively raging, and he couldn’t help but notice that when she was angry her cheeks flushed a deep scarlet, and her eyes were

I Am A Rose
AN: No, I don’t own FF12. Or Balthier. Dammit, thanks for reminding me.
Anyway, this is my first story. Please enjoy!
I Am a Rose

Ashelia B’Nargin Dalmasca had never been lithe as a flower. If she were to describe herself, she would not use words such as flowy, dainty, and gentle. Certainly, she was elegant and graceful – she was not raised a princess in vain, after all – but she lacked the certain characteristics to be considered a “flower”. A flower was a princess who roamed elegant palace walls, lined with rich red carpeting and valuable antiquities. Ashelia B’Nargin Dalmasca roamed the sewers of Rabanastre, nothing more than a rat taking refuge in the waterway that lay beneath the palace. She did not, she noted, crumple under the harsh weather of the Paramina Rift, as any ordinary flower would. She did not wilt when under siege of things unpleasant and unholy – instead, she would raise a carefully trained sword arm and strike down any

Parmi Les Gitans, Chapter 8
AN: SORRY! SORRY! I meant to update this – yay for writer’s block!
Also, this chappie was supposed to be, like, twice as long. But, since you’ve all been so patient, I’m gonna just upload what I have now, because I like where it ends anyway. :p That means this chappie is shorter than usual, but I’m sure you’ll live! I promise you, I shall not forget about this – though, I have to say, funny things happen when you let things sit. I reworked my outline, and now I think it is much better, if not much more mature than I was originally intending.
This chapter has a few swear words, but nothing too bad.  Again, thanks for your patience! :-D

Chapter Eight
Her heart was pounding in her throat.  Élodie lashed about as violently as she could, but the gypsy’s grip was too strong, and his fingers dug painfully into her skin as she attempted to flee from him.  From behind, a soft glow of light emanated from the flami

Chapter 7
Her head was spinning.  There was too much going on.  The servants bustled back and forth between rooms, carrying fine linens, washing and scrubbing, attending to their residents.  Élodie had already been dressed – well, not so much dressed as stuffed into the overly ostentatious russet satin dress, with frills and bows and all the ornaments that Élodie despised.  She sat patiently as Mélanie combed gingerly through her dusty blonde curls.  Mélanie herself looked lovely in a dress that was finer than the normal frock she adorned.  She was just finishing pinning Élodie’s hair up into her mother’s pearl hair comb.  “There you are,” she said, kindly.  They both examined Mélanie’s handiwork in the looking glass.  Mélanie raised her slender fingers to her own mousy brown hair, sifting through the tresses, scrutinizing.

Parmi Les Gitans, Chapter 6
Chapter 6
Arlette Charbonneau was the epitome of the French beauté sociale – incredibly handsome, appropriately charming, and wealthier than three-fourths of the population of Paris.  She was well respected, much sought-after, and highly coveted.  Many other wealthy Parisians, men and women alike, admired her and her popularity always won her a place at the finest balls and gatherings.  She was, in short, a marvel.
Élodie did not like her.
With stunning platinum-blonde hair (always pulled regally back into some elaborate hair style), a pointed yet slightly up-turned nose, thin but gracefully curved lips, and ice-cold blue eyes, Madame Charbonneau gave off a distinct air of arrogance that was as equally fascinating as it was revolting.  Indeed, Élodie could not understand how the woman managed to be so well liked.  She gave off the impression of rarely being impressed by or interested in anything – indeed

Chapter 5
She had never worn this dress before.  Puffy and thick, with all the usual petticoats bolstering it, the black dress looked foreign and out of place on her lithe body.  She felt as if she were absolutely drowning in the black silk.  But she sat obediently, not making a sound, as Mélanie laced the back of the dress (much more gently than Madame Odette’s normal ministrations).
“How’s that, Chérie?”  Mélanie asked kindly, but Élodie gave no reply.  Indeed, she seemed to be a thing lifeless; her eyes bore into the looking glass, as if dead and hollow.  
Mélanie could not blame her.  The poor child had awoken this morning to find her mother dead beneath her.  The young woman shivered slightly, recalling the horrible screams Élodie gave when Madame Odette did not wake.  The entire household had raced to Dianne’s quarters, only to fi

Parmi Les Gitans, Chapter 4
Chapter 4
Élodie awoke warm and safe, clutched in her mother’s embrace.  She felt an idle hand gently tugging at her curls, smoothing them down, relishing in the softness of the hair.  So her mother was awake, Élodie realized absently, burrowing deeper for more warmth.  Her mother must have noticed the sudden shift, and her soft whisper carried about the room.  “Élodie.”  
“Maman,” she responded quietly, unsure and suddenly fearful of what her mother might say.  Madame Delacroix sighed deeply, inhaling the scent of Élodie’s hair (which she realized smelled like, in addition to the normal soaps and perfumes, smoke and fire).  Her mother twirled a dark-gold curl, examining the texture between two slender fingers.
“You were horribly foolish, Élodie,” her mother continued softly.  “I was terrified.”  She abruptly pulled
