Solitude by SorceressCassandra Solitude by SorceressCassandra
" Although she loved her friends, the other signers, there were times when Izayoi Aki needed a little time to think by herself. Thus she would dissapear to a small park and sit at her favorite spot on a bridge near the water.

She had been alone for so long, the fact she had people by her side now was both amazing and a little overwhelming. Yet they pulled her from the darkness and the thorny forest she seemed to surround herself in. For the first time in a long time Aki actually felt like...
herself not the person that she forced herself to be, the sadistic one who loved distruction, but herself.

Aki finally had people who cared now. It was all she ever wanted. And in her solitude she vowed to fight with them in the WRGP and find her own true strength along the way...

Love this shot... love love Love this shot! Sara I can't thank you enough! :hug:

As for the drabble, I have to say this one is also a little personal for me. For the longest time I was a loner, and I didn't mind it. Now that I have a close circle of friends... well it's a tad bit alien but at the same time I love it to bits. But I still need my time to be alone, and think things through. I wouldn't be surprised if Aki did the same.

This one also kinda reflects the changes I think Aki is going through. I've heard a lot of opnions on her decision to no longer rely on her powers. Personally, now that she can control them I was surpised she hadn't come to that decision sooner as she never wanted them in the first place. I think she wants to find Izayoi Aki's own strength, not the strength she probably still associates with the Black Rose Witch and all the pain that mask caused her that she hid behind.

I also think that Aki is a tad bit more powerful then she let on. But that may be just me.

Izayoi Aki is cosplayed by myself.

Where did you take this picture at? I think I recognize the location, but I'm not sure.

The Japanese walk garden in my college town in Missouri. ^^

The Japanese Garden at Nathaneal Greene Park? In Springfield?

I thought so! I've been there a couple of times for the Japanese Fall Festival.

Lol! You may have seen me there sometime then. It's one of my favorite things to do during the fall. It's also probably been my favorite photo spot in Springfield.
