Set by JaniceDuke Set by JaniceDuke
'I came into being as I came into being. I grew as I grew. I changed as I change...Generation after generation, I create myself. It is never easy. Long nights I have waited, lost in myself, considering the stars. I wage battle against darkness, against my own ignorance, my resistance to change, my sentimental love for my own folly...There is no end to becoming. I live forever striving for perfection. I praise the moment I die in fire for the veils of illusion burn with me. I see how hard we strive for truth, and once attained, how easily we forget it. I hold that fire as long as I can. My nose fills with the smell of seared flesh, the acrid smoke of death, so that years from now I might look on that scar and remember how it was to hold the light, how it was to die and come again radiant as light walking on sand. I change and change again, generation after generation. I find anguish then peace...I am the god in the world in everything, even in darkness. If you have not seen me there, you have not looked. I am the fire that burns you, that burns in you. To live is to die a thousand deaths, but there is only one fire, one eternity.' -- Becoming the Phoenix, Egyptian Book of the Dead

Get Set Go!

Set should get more love. the dude's probably as vindicated as Adramalech. I'm curious as to why you chose the phoenix to represent him, but for some reason... it's very fitting.

dang, i should really read the EBOTD too... but.. omg it's like spoilers, i don't want to spoil it :( but the quotes you've chosen for your artworks just sound so darn RIGHT, I'd be a fool not to at least peek at it >_<

yea man, red lightning! deserts gonna go up in smoke nao
