Character Post:  Athine’s Journal

Being the protector of the N’Loron is not always as glamorous as it sounds.  I never wanted anything more than to have my own adventures.  I guess maybe I was young and foolish to think I could escape destiny.  The Fates told me that I was going to lead one way or another.  Some days I wish I could just sink back down into anonymity.  It would definitely be easier.

I know that this path has brought me some great things like meeting the father of my daughter Isis and finding a bond with Zarra.  Yet, the weight of the world on ones shoulders, even immortal born shoulders, is tiring.  Now I think I know how poor Atlas must have felt for those three thousand years.  Unfortunately for me there is no end to my sentence of world carrying.  If I were to turn my back for even a second I know she would try something.  Nikeda is a sneaky bitch hell bent on her own desires.  I know Zarra and the others are working on defeating her as much as I am, but I feel like she is my responsibility.  I cannot rest until she rests in whatever hell she is destined for.

Immortality is not all that it is cracked up to be when you cannot enjoy the life you are living.  I am on call 24 hours a day not only in this realm but any realm that Nikeda and her cursed blood creatures roam through.  They were born in this world and they should have ended in this world.  I feel sometimes as if I have failed in my task.  I wonder if this is how Zeus felt the entire time he ruled?  It is in these times of self-doubt that I miss him the most.   He would not have let me sink in this pity pit.  Rather he would have told me that I was weak and I would have in turn shown him that I am stronger than he estimated.

Shannon McRoberts was born in Kentucky and currently resides there with her family. She began writing novellas late in her career after fulfilling a college dream of publishing her poetry book.

When not writing or working at her day job she enjoys creating fantasy art in Poser; this helps spur on her writing about fantasy worlds. Shannon is also an avid reader enjoying many books that feature strong female leads. It comes as no surprise that when she writes that her characters are also strong female leads

Shannon’s books are not long at all as she feels that something should be left up to the reader; no you don’t really need to know that the walls were blue on the fourth floor to enjoy a story!

If she has any spare time Shannon enjoys playing things like World of Warcraft, Elder Scroll games, Guild Wars, Rift, and Second Life. However, she often doesn’t have any spare time between work, family, and her art/writing hobbies.
