I keep promising myself I'm going to write more and it never happens, but I finally managed to get out a bit of character profile for Ardwen and Elerus. I'll admit I mainly dabbled in visual artwork these days, and I feel my writing is rusty and really not up to par. Be that as it may, I gave it an honest attempt. I do not know if it is good or poor, but I do know there is much room for improvement. On a related note, I find DA's formatting to submit literature to be a total pain, I wish I could simply upload directly from a saved word document, but it is either not possible or am I inept enough to have missed that bit.

I hope it's an enjoyable read to someone out there. As an interesting aside the penanggalan is an adaptation of a monster from Philippine culture, if memory serves. I've been wanting to use one in a story for some time. Regardless of where the things come from their horrifying. Though still a step below Weeping Angels in my opinion. ;)

Thank you all for the well wishes and kind words. :) Unfortunately, I'm pretty sick right now with a stomach virus, so apologies I didn't get this message out sooner, just trying to recover.
