For the Love of the Dead - Chapter 1Mid-afternoon, on another gloomy day in Eastmarch, a young Altmer giggled as she pushed open the door of her home. Her younger Bosmer sister ran in after her, both covered in snow.
"You're always better than me at this, Fadryne. I swear, you love hitting me in the face."
"That's what I was aiming for, Nianire. And I've got to enjoy being better than you at something."
With that, Nianire laughed, not expecting her younger sister to be so open about her inferiority complex. Fadryne was a better shot that her any day, but Nianire could always trick her with her stealth. Fadryne may win snowball fights, Nianire was a hide and seek champion.

To depression, for creating days without endWake up to the realization that you've been awake
for seconds, minutes, hours.
You've been awake in this warm, dark room
and you don't know how long it's been

You gain consciousness in this too warm morning
and your thoughts whir in endless loops
because it's either that or face the weight in your chest.
Light breaks though the window, soft and unwelcome

Awake, but not conscious.
So you think yourself in circles a little while longer
waiting for those quiet pains
(the constant reminder)
to gain consciousness.
