They call it the Dawnlight because that's as far as it ever gets. The sun rises in the early morning, with its thin, tentative light, and for the rest of the day there is nothing more. Nothing. Nothing but rain and grey and dead dragon bones. Bare rock and bodies. It's dark and wet and empty. It's fog and sickness and death.

Lots of people have a 'my aims' section on their profile. My only aim was to get 'Promise the Sky' into the top ten of a genre so I'd be able to see it on the old homepage. It did (Adventure) but I was on holiday so I missed it. That's how my luck works.
