As of last June, I'm officially closing this account. No new fics or poems will be added. I will, however, keep everything I have already posted up, and will continue to read, favorite, and review others' works. I started college in August and want to start making the transition from "publishing" online to publishing in real literary magazines and, hopefully, someday publishing my own books.

To anyone who has reviewed or simply enjoyed my work, I'm glad you liked it, and am sorry to have to stop posting new things. For my friends in real life, if you want to keep reading my works, feel free to email me about it, and I'll personally give you my stuff.

Thanks to all, PromisedSword.

About Me: My name is Promised Sword, though I'm also known as ~The Black Dove~. I'm a eighteen-year-old romantic who loves to ship, will never fall out of love with Babylon 5, and reads and writes more than is healthy. I love all the arts, but have found my talent in writing. I'll do both poetry and prose, but I turn out the former more often than the latter. I'm a film geek, have a home library bigger than the local public one, and music fuels my muse more than anything else.

Favorite Bands: The Cruxshadows, Within Temptation, Nightwish, Evanescence, Kajiura Yuki, My Chemical Romance, Grey Delisle, and various other Jpop/Jrock.

Favorite Songs: Winterborn (This Sacrifice) by The Cruxshadows, Number One Crush by Garbage, The Queen and the Soldier by Suzanne Vega, and The Maple Tree by Grey Delisle.

Favorite Movies/T.V. Shows: The Last Samurai, the LOTR trilogy, Millennium Actress, Voices of a Distant Star, What Dreams May Come, Serenity, Pan's Labyrinth, Sweeney Todd, and Advent Children; Babylon 5, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Heroes, The Sarah Conner Chronicles, Avatar: the Last Airbender, Death Note, Naruto, Princess Tutu, .hack/SIGN, Haibane Renmei, Azumanga Daioh, Chobits, and Rurouni Kenshin.

Favorite Quotes:
From Know Me, by Northlight:
'Know me, her words cry. See inside my mind, my heart, my life. I'm love and laughter and more than I can ever show them when not behind the words, fantasy and reality bleeding together. Safe.'

From Famous Last Words, by My Chemical Romance:
'I am not afraid to keep on living
I am not afraid to walk this world alone'

From Winterborn (This Sacrifice) by The Cruxshadows:
And in this moment...I will not run
It is my place to stand
We few shall carry hope
Within our bloodied hands
