Malachi Perish
✓ A Fact by Death the Kid's Wife

A week has passed. Only a week.

And now I only have a day to prepare. Adrenaline, the sister of fear, courses through my veins as I breathe a shaky sigh, filling my lungs with oxygen as I anticipate the growing hours that will determine my fate here at the Academy, as though I were about to jump off the highest peak of the icy Himilayas with only a parachute to secure my survival.

Kid has taught me well, and I owe him all the credit in the world. If it weren't for him, I would not have this second chance. I have to make the best of the situation; I must seize this magnanimous opportunity...or I will be lost and all my work will be wasted.

I close my eyes and sit back on the dun-colored wall, my sketchbook in one hand and my pencil in the other. I've been drawing more pictures than usual lately. Normally, I only draw when I'm inspired, but this raw feeling of unabashed certainty and passion has been bubbling up inside my head for the longest time.

✓ A Fact-Fiction by Death the Kid's Wife

It's a beautiful day. And right about now, I would start going off about how the pavement is soaking up the sunshine and I'm at ease, but that's not the case. In fact, sunshine is probably my worst enemy right now.

My legs feel wobbly and weak, my entire being fatigued from all the exercises I've endured thus far here at the Academy. It's the end of the day. Everyone has retired to their homes. After my morning exercises, Kid asked if I would like to train after he got out of class at the end of the day, and I simply couldn't refuse the offer. I need the extra practice.
I choose not to complain. I'm not one to whine; however, if I keep this up, I'm sure I'll pass out from a heat stroke right here on the grass.
    "You're not going to stop now, are you?" Kid calls from the shade of a nearby tree.

I have had the opportunity to read many books in my lifetime, many of which have changed my perspective on life and have also influenced my own writing to a certain degree. As of 2013, my favorite authors are as follows:

L.E.Modesitt Jr
Anne McCaffrey
J.R.R Tolkien
Terry Brooks
Stephen King
Dean Koontz
George Orwell

Here are some of the books that have changed my perspective on life.

The first is the absolute first book I read from L.E.Modesitt Jr, which is called The Magic Engineer. I loved this book, because it surpassed my expectations of what a typical fantasy book should be like... Instead of the typical good vs evil scenario, this book deals how opinions and deeds conflict and cause fighting, and outlay how it has nothing to do with good and evil, but rather it shows that conflicting opinions and regimes are what causing fighting and wars.
In this book, the main character, Dorrin, is skilled in using Order magic, the magic which fuels life and keeps a structure to everything, even the air that they breathe and the cells of plants. Because, however, he is untrained and can't...
