Cyrus Night by GodessFae Cyrus Night by GodessFae
gets shot for the 'silent night' play on words

Deyri slipped from the party unnoticed. Her heavy cloak wrapped around her for warmth. It was a cold night, and where she was going would be far colder, away from any warmth in the city. She looked at the lights, admiring their splendor. But she knew out there was one sybal who would not be experiencing any of the festivities- one that would be alone, in the cold and dark.

She approached the forest apprehensively, skirting around any area that looked like it had seen activity recently, treading only in places that had undisturbed snow. She encountered no one. Deeper under the trees she searched, until she found the giant with the savage crown. He was still, and she could see that frost had begun its cold creep across his skin.

 Remaining out of sight, she took out the seeds she had tested and prepared, releasing them into the winter flurry, holding on to just one as a mental connection. She focused on them, slowly growing the large blooms with her own alteration. Small lights began and then grew as the petals unfurled, their bio luminescence filling the clearing. At last her strength gave out, and they stopped growing. She didn’t know if it made a difference for the mourning sybal, but she hoped it did. She hoped it at least brought a little of the comfort and merry-making of the season to this night.

“Happy winter solstice” she whispered into the cold flurrying wind. “Cyrus.”

I had to re-examine the image after I read the little narrative and I like all of the little details, the frosted limbs are very well done.

Wow, I love the way you've done the colors in this, especially those golds. The frost on the plants (and poor Cyrus!) looks so realistic, too.
