The Archer's Legacy-Part One Sunlight flittered through the canopy of leaves above. The smell of flowers and ripened fruit rode the small breeze like horsemen, ruffling the grass. Birds chirped as if celebrating the warm, spring day. An arrow whistled, cutting through the air as if it were nothing.
It stuck cleanly at the center of an assortment of red and white circles. Lucinda, a maiden of seventeen with night black hair and dark chocolate eyes notched another arrow into the taught string of her bow. The black and red arrow shot past fifty yards of trees and shrubbery to pierce the back of the previous arrow, splitting it in half.
Lucinda allowed her arms to fall. "What a waste," she murmured. "I'll have to make more, I suppose."
The girl crossed the expanse of forest quickly, long hair trailing behind her. Thin, graceful f
You can tell a lot about someone by the music they listen to.
Hit shuffle on your iPod/Phone/iTunes/media player and write down the first 10 songs.Then pass this onto 10 people.
1. "Pyres of Varanasi" by 30 Seconds to Mars
Of course the first song would be by 30STM. They're my favorite This is one of the very few instrumental songs I have in my music library. And by very few, I mean maybe 5. I like my lyrics, ok?
2. "In My Remains" by Linkin Park
Another one of my favorite bands! I love this song. That's all I can say.
3. "No One's Here to Sleep" by Naughty Boy ft. Bastille
I only recently discovered Bastille and then I immediately went and downloaded a whole bunch of their music. This is on a playlist of music I listen to while I'm writing Zira's story. I haven't even sat down and paid attention to the lyrics yet but somehow the mood and melody of the song just seems to fit.
4. "Better Than Me" by Hinder
Kind of a depressing song, but I like it. Actually, now I think about it, a lot of the music I have is kind of depressing.
5. "Tears Don't Fall" by Bullet For My Valentine
I'm pretty selective about the metal/screaming/hardcore music I listen to--I don't like all of it but there are a few songs out there that I really love. This is one of them. Also the music video for this is just amazing.
6. "Kingdom Come" by The Civil Wars
I managed to pull this off of my Hunger Games soundtrack before my husband lost my CD T_T Such a good song. I love the lyrics, and these guys' voices together are just perfect for each other.
7. "Pieces" by Sum 41
I distinctly remember the first time I heard this song. My prom date senior year let me pick a CD to listen to in the car and I remember being very impressed by his taste in music. He had a bunch of Linkin Park CDs in his collection, which he graciously burned copies of for me after I raved about how much I loved them. He also burned this Sum 41 CD for me and I loved this song as soon as I heard it.
8. "Bad Blood" by Bastille
I think these guys could easily be one of my new favorite bands. This is on my writing music playlist, too.
9. "Rule The World" by Lorde
Did anyone else see that epic amazing trailer for Game of Thrones that had this song in it? I think it was just fan-made or something but I haven't ever been able to find it again and it was SO GOOD! If you know where it is, please send me the link.
10. "Red Hands" by Walk Off the Earth
If you guys haven't checked out this band, you need to. Mostly they do covers of other songs but they do them in a really unique way and they are just so cute. Like, their personalities--they just seem like really genuine fun people and I respect that. Anyways, this song immediately made me think of my characters, specifically Zira and Jared. So of course, I added it to my writing music playlist as well.
And I think I'm going to tag Neonhyper for this one. Anyone else is welcome to do it, too
