Tragedy

"For the girl atop the hillside, salvation seemed impossible. Her family were in the city. She had no money, no possessions. Nothing except the clothes on her back and the horse she rode on. As the sun rose above the darkened city and the full extent of the damage became clear, the girl turned her horse away. Away from the life and death in the city of Pompeii."

(Title is taken from the Ed Sheeran song I See Fire, written for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in 2013.)

Hiraeth(N) a homesickness for a home you can't return to, or that never was.

A modern fairy tale set during an alternate WWII.

Once upon a time, there was a beautiful woman with the sun in her eyes, the moon in her skin, and music in her voice. Once upon a time there was a man whom this woman loved with all of her heart, but he was not truly hers, but her passenger's.     Her passenger's name was Sverila.    Once upon a time there was a shadow, the brother to Sverila, Death himself.     His name was Anryien.    Anryien watched the woman who had unintentionally freed him from his chains, and he grew to love this woman; his sister's host.        But nothing is ever certain when his sister is in play and a plot will soon unravel that will lead them all through time as a war among ancient gods threatens to overtake the world- a world where only one of them is truly native to.

❝The king may rule the kingdom, but it's the queen who moves the board.❞ - D.M. Timney

Thrust into an all-new adventure, the fourteenth Duke of Monmouth, Nathaniel Osborne feels the winds of ill fortune blowing stronger than ever when he and his manservant, Benson, are forced to board one of the most feared pirate ships ever to sail the Caribbean, The Devil's Chariot.

{ Cover by @jakepatt }

**********************************************************************

A little about 'Hoist The Colours'

True Story : In the 1950s a group of students from the university of Glasgow drove down to London, broke into Westminster Abbey, stole the coronation stone (The stone of destiney) and returned it to its rightful place, Scotland. Upon hearing this story on the news, a poet immediately put pen to paper and wrote this epic 25 verse Gaelic reel called 'Oran na Cloiche' (Song of the stone)

Growing up my mum would sing loads of traditional Gaelic songs and this one was one of my favourites. Recently I heard a cover on YouTube by a Scottish singer named Kathleen MacInnes where she sang Oran na Cloiche and It just inspired me to write a song about adventure and action and pirates...
