Pr16:7 — Guardian of Secrets

If you saw, you would have to keep it secret.

Holding a secret means you must keep secret that you hold
a secret in the first place. You can't smugly drop hints to
others, or drop heavy, leading sighs.

So can you do it? Can you keep a secret?

If not, then give me your blood.

"Maybe I could have saved my sister."
But she died. You can't change the past.

"I will never forgive the kingdom and its soldiers."
Waste of time. Killing them changes nothing.

"They will atone for their crimes with their lives."
You merely seek purpose in a world without your sister.

Chained Belle

There is a woman who lives a princess's life in a kingdom
wreathed by sea and sand. Having grown weary of a life
where everything is decided for her, she has lost the will
to smile. She exists now in a partial state of solemn defeat,
spending her days idly. She also hides her face behind a veil,
even within the palace, and no one can say what she looks like.

But there is another side to her: a fortune-telling side.
She transforms into this as night falls, wandering the dim
streets of the city in search of something she cannot name.

Shadowbound Traveler thumbnail

When I come down
I go right back up

As if penance
As if fate

I may lose my way
Lose sight of it all
Lose myself entire

But I continue to climb
And descend once more

Real warmth will never reach these hands
Heavy blankets of snow hide scars
Yet in idealism, I speak and pray
May the fleeting last forever
Ever-searching for my soul
New Year's Ruler thumbnail

New Year's Ruler

Of no account is the powerless hand that grasps nothing
For thick curtains of night hide my wounds
For the tapir has no right to dreams of its own
Ever isolated, the hologram floats in the dark
Relentlessly searching for my soul
New Year's Girl thumbnail

Basking in winter's wind, I await spring
Lonely though I am, sad though I am,
Oh, but I smile through it all
One day this storm will pass
Maybe we will travel my dreams together

Delicately they steal away our hearts
Reaching for mine, I know I am too late
Everyone here is an empty husk
Ashen moonlight captures my gaze
Mesmerised by an image of false flowers

"Truth yet exists within lies."
And so you would demand we remain ignorant?

"What, for me? You didn't need to give me a present.
I'm happy enough watching you grow every day—but thank you.
...Oh, did you make this hairpin? Wow, that's a lot of work."
"Hm? You'll help me put it on."
"It's wonderful. I haven't thought about my hair in years.
I hated it when my hair went white, but thanks to you, I..."

"...Huh? ...Oh. It was just a dream."
"I guess it's about that time of year, isn't it?
I thought I was over thinking about that kind
of thing, but...here we are, I guess."

have returned to him, he can remain a boy no longer.

Finally, he arrives at the forest where he and the prince sleep.

snuffed out forever."
Yuletide Captain thumbnail

Yuletide Captain

"Hmm... I can't decide what to give the squad."
"They'd definitely be happy with food, so maybe cake? Or steak!"
"Cake... Steak... Cakesteak? Is that even a thing?"

"Still, once they eat the food, it's gone. That's kind of sad..."

"No, I'm overthinking it. This is no time for indecision;
It's the most special day of the year, and I want them
all to be happy!"

"...Sorry. A rock?"
"Yeah! I found it near the mouth of a volcano way down—"

All I want is to see my parents again.
Fabled Witch thumbnail

Fabled Witch


To bind one and steal their freedom.

The girl tilts her head as she gazes at the grim letters.
It is a painful, distressing, abominable word. But she still
doesn't understand, for she receives it daily. These things
protect her daily. And occasionally, the word feels...sweet.

She struggles the dictionary closed, places it back on the shelf,
and leaves the room. When next she opens this book—after she
has grown a touch—what impression will she get from the word?
Fabled Assassin thumbnail

Fabled Assassin


"What is justice to you?"

She would ask me, of all people? Me, the one who kills as ordered.
Regardless, she looks at me most earnestly and says,
"We both fight for our masters. I would like to hear your thoughts."

"If justice exists," I reply, "it is not my place to name it.
Still, perhaps fighting for another against evil is justice?"

"I see. Thank you. I think I understand you better now."
