Congratulations, YOU HAVE FOUND A HIDDEN FILE. Go ahead and read if you like, but please keep in mind that I have hidden these for a reason. These are bad or controversial works that I am more ashamed of than my other work ... or in the words of Shakespeare
If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended—
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend.
If you pardon, we will mend.

Disclaimer 1: Most of this is fanfic. That means I do not own any of it. I just borrow it to play with for a little while and let people see the pathetic results if they really want to.

Disclaimer 2: I'm not making any money from it. It's just for fun.

Disclaimer 3: What isn't borrowed is all made up. None of this is real or most likely at all realistic. Please don't trust any of the information in here. Most likely you know more about whatever I'm writing about than I do.

Disclaimer 4: Attitudes, views and opinions expressed by the characters or in the story are not necessarily those of the author. Even when writing Science Fiction or Fantasy I do not tend to attempt to create perfect/better worlds in which everybody gets a happy end ... or whatever is best for them. Please accept that some characters will have a bad ending or be unhappy.

Disclaimer 5: I intend no insult to anyone. If I offend anyone I'm very sorry. Please understand that it was an accident as I tend to be very clumsy in these things.

Disclaimer 6: If my characters' conversations seem odd or they appear to be talking past each other the latter might occasionally be intentional, but most likely it is an accident and I'm not aware that they are. It's just my bad communication skills.

Return To Daylight

Summary: Why Touda is grateful for his visor.
Author's Notes: No, the visor is not a good thing for Touda, but these are just Touda's thoughts not facts.

Touda lay in the sun next to a decorative fountain in one of the larger courtyards of Tenku. It was a still slightly fresh spring morning, but the spot he'd chosen to sun himself in was well lit and he could already feel his blood moving a little faster. The light glistened and blinked as the water danced in the fountain and Touda once again felt secretly grateful for the visor that separated and protected him from the world.

Before his imprisonment he'd loved light. He was a fire shiki and a serpent after all and even though his own fire was black he'd always been attached to sunlight and fire. He'd loved to watch the flames leap in the fireplace, to see the sun rise and set ... He still did.

Only now he was also afraid of it. That first time Tsuzuki had led him out of Tenku's depths and the daylight had hit his eyes after living in almost complete darkness for centuries had hurt so much.

He thought he'd screamed though all he remembered for sure was the pain and the tears it had driven into his eyes. Even when he'd closed them tightly the light had still burned its way through his lids bright and painful. That and Tsuzuki's worried questions.

Somebody had lent him black glasses back then and they'd covered up the sides somehow and soon after that he'd received the control device with the visor.

It had just been a little daylight shining in through a small window in one of the lower level corridors on the lower levels of Tenku, but it had been incredibly painful. Touda doubted that he'd be able to sunbathe without the visor, or sit by a fireplace, or look at the fountain in the light. He would never see daylight directly again, but then he wouldn't be able to bare it, if he were allowed.
