Once Upon a Time...

“I am unjust, but I can strive for justice.
My life's unkind, but I can vote for kindness.
I, the unloving, say life should be lovely.
I, that am blind, cry out against my blindness.”

– Vachel Lindsay


xxxxx...there was a young man who lived in a kingdom at war. The king called for the able bodied young men to fight his war, but the young man didn't want to go to war, for he was an artist and desired peace. The young man found a smuggler and paid him for passage out of the kingdom. But the smuggler was a pirate in disguise, he stole the young man's money and took him to a kingdom far, far away. He was sold to the rulers of this kingdom, for there were two and they were siblings, Night and Day.

xxxxxDay was a creature of hedonism, color, and life. Day kept the young man close, but Day was hot and fiery, and the young man's skin reddened from the heat. Day liked things of beauty, and so crafted the young man into the image of what he desired. He stayed by Day's throne, and lost himself in light and heat.

xxxxxEventually, Day left and Night came. Night was cold and distant. Night had the young man play music, but the young man could not stop staring at Night. Where Day was bright and harsh, Night was cool and soothing. But Night robs mortals of their senses, and when he could not turn away when Night told him to, Night took his sight.

xxxxxEventually, Night left and Day came once more. Day restored the young man's sight and the cycle began anew. For many years, Day followed Night, and the young man served them without question. Until one dawn, Night had left but Day had yet to come. A star left the sky and descended to the young man. The star had taken pity on him, but the star also desired to be free. Still blind from Night's touch, the star urged the young man from the throne room with naught but its voice.

xxxxxThe star led the young man from the castle and into a garden, when it led him through a path of brambles. On the other side of the brambles, the young man found himself back in the kingdom he had left so many years ago. The war he had ran from and ended, other wars had come and gone, but he was home and free.

xxxxxThe young man was no longer quite so young though his time in the other kingdom had slowed his aging. He would sit in parks and squares, play a song and tell a story. And he would begin: “Once upon a time there was a young man who lived in a kingdom at war...”

  • The Mask

xxxxxAsher is a hard guy to miss. Standing around the seven foot mark, he already is significantly taller than most. He has an athletic build which only seems to enhance his stature. While his skin has a slight tan to it, more obvious are the tattoos that can be seen whenever bare skin can be seen, he's covered nearly head to toe in an intricate tribal tattoo. Less obvious, but also hard to miss is the fact that his brown eyes never seem to truly focus on anything, he'll look around occasionally, and his gaze shifts when he talks, but he's just not seeing anything. His brown hair is usually kept cropped short, and he sports a short beard along his jaw.
He doesn't pay too much attention to fashion, and sticks to plain colors that go together easily, mostly blacks and grays. Jeans are a common sight in his wardrobe, as are tees and tanks. A jacket is added during the colder months.

xxxxxAsher has the stature of an Ogre with the look of a Fairest. Standing around the seven foot mark, he already is significantly taller than most. He has an athletic build which only seems to enhance his stature. His skin has a slight reddish hue to it, more obvious are the tattoos that can be seen whenever bare skin can be seen, he's covered nearly head to toe in an intricate tribal tattoo. Less obvious, but also hard to miss is the fact that his brown eyes never seem to truly focus on anything, he'll look around occasionally, and his gaze shifts when he talks, but he's just not seeing anything. His brown hair is usually kept cropped short, and he sports a short beard along his jaw. A small pair of nubs, no longer than a couple inches pierce his brow just in front of his hairline.

RP Hooks
  • Abernathy — Asher claims to be part of the Abernathy clan, and sure as hell he kind of looks like this one relative that disappeared dodging the draft back in '69. That guy was even named Asher. Couldn't be the same guy though, he's way to young and way too tall. Probably the son of the elder Asher, right?

  • Changeling — Asher is one of the Lost. Not long since he escaped the hedge, but long enough to weasel his way into the local freehold and align himself with the Dusk court.

  • Busker — It's not hard to find Asher milling around one of Fallcoast's parks or shopping centers, playing music for tips. And the guy isn't half bad.

  • Betelgeuse — No, not the star. That's the name of his seeing eye dog, usually nicknamed Beetle. It doesn't take much to figure out he's blind, but the dog is an odd choice, a Mexican hairless. There's no accounting for taste. Though to Changeling eyes, the dog's skin looks like a night sky, dark blue and twinkling with lights.

  • Stands Out in a Crowd — The poor guy sticks out like a sore thumb. Not only is he ridiculously tall, he has a look and a voice most people remember. And those tattoos are a hard thing to miss as well.

Chris Cornell - Nearly Forgot My Broken Heart

Every time I stare into the sun,
Trying to find a reason to go on.
All I ever get is burned and blind,
Until the sky bleeds the pouring rain.

X Ambassadors - Renegades

Run away-ay with me,
Lost souls in revelry.
Running wild and running free,
Two kids, you and me.
And I say,
Hey, hey hey hey,
Living like we're renegades.

Louis Armstrong - What a Wonderful World

I see skies of blue,
And clouds of white,
Bright blessed days,
Dark sacred nights,
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.
