      Great, thanks! (Nice signature.)

      Making something beautiful in a broken world can be harrowing work. And it can’t be done alone.

        Thank you! I have a whole bunch more I want to change it too, so I’m going to give each signature a few days, lol

        Also, I’m trying to find it, but I’ve hidden it away somewhere…. *sigh* Hopefully it’ll turn up soon….

          @wingiby-iggiby,

          Ha ha, cool quote! Andrew Peterson! 🙂

          @everybody,

          Does anyone remember where we left off so we can start again instead of remaining in this lull?

            No Idea.😐

            I AM afraid. I'm glad that I am. That tells me I need to be brave. ~W.M.

              Didn’t the Five just find that little girl after getting attacked by Momma Hhborgen?

                Ahh, yes. I think, was Holly carrying her or was that someone else?

                  I think it was Holly.

                    Wow, I can’t remember anything, but that rings a bell. Yeah, I think so.

                    We have another problem. I have the poem I wrote for the map written down, but not everyone else’s (I don’t think). I’ll try to find it and post it, so we have some kind of jump-starter, if @wingiby-iggiby can’t find her doc. 🙂

                      FOUND IT!!

                      #1 – by me:

                      Be ye friend or be ye foe

                      Hark to all my dire words

                      There is hidden far below

                      A path to the new world

                       

                      I once dwelt in its mansion

                      But now it is no more

                      I once laughed by its fountain

                      But now it flows no more

                       

                      But hark! Some hope hath sprung

                      The seekers who art brave

                      Shall find the city of this song

                      And great treasure to be saved

                       

                      You may be young, you may be old

                      Hark and thou shalt divine

                      Where Londima lies silent, cold

                      To be found by seekers five

                       

                      One will clear path with melody

                      She is one of three

                       

                      One has fire at her hand

                      To protect the band

                       

                      One has ears and eyes quite sharp

                      And doubt stays his heart

                       

                      One has spying yet to do

                      He is one of two

                       

                      One has heart of gold and smile strong

                      She seems weak to some

                       

                      So be ye friend or be ye foe,

                      Hark and heed my foresight

                      The five shall find the path below

                      And lead Londima to light

                       

                      #2 – by Kylie:

                      Under mountain, over stone, 

                      through the deep waters unknown, 

                      travel careful Five

                       

                      Child thought weak, 

                      thou shalt find what most desires

                       

                      Child spy, 

                      be thy warned, trouble doth lie

                       

                      Child elf, 

                      lead with care, lest you come to broken beyond repair.

                       

                      Child full of song,

                      guard against that which is wrong

                       

                      Child full of golden fire, 

                      burn away the thorned briar

                       

                      All ye children with gifts at hand, 

                      protect each other, protect the band!

                       

                      #3 – by Wingiby:

                      You never saw such a Five

                      They make you feel like you’re alive

                      Indeed, they’ve come to set you free

                      So you can be who you were meant to be

                       

                      One in whom strength is hidden,

                      Just yearning to come out.

                      His power is great and he will ride

                      It soon without a doubt.

                       

                      Music is a weapon strong,

                      Used to right many wrongs,

                      And the one who wields its power

                      Will soon learn of evil’s bower.

                       

                      They thought she was weak,

                      But I dare you to rethink

                      For in the one who is now strong

                      She is the light, the newborn fawn.

                       

                      From anger deep within its lair,

                      You my boy, shall find it there.

                      Pain does hurt, and evil stings,

                      But you will find these desperate things.

                       

                      And the the fiery, sharpened one,

                      Your work is yet to be done.

                      Still evil finds its way,

                      It is the one you have to slay.

                       

                      Do not fear, you great five!

                      It is a gift to be alive,

                      And with that gift you will restore,

                      Our land, our heart, forevermore!

                        And we have such different styles… Hm… 😉

                        Also, did we decide who was going to write the 4th piece?

                          I forgot about the talent of our fellow writers too. And also, in my poem, when it says

                          Child thought weak, thou shalt find what most desires

                          I meant to put desire, not desires. Anyway, just lettin’ you know.
