The choice was mine and mine completely.
I could have any prize that I desired.
I could burn with the splendor of the brightest fire,
Or else, or else I could choose time.
Remember, I was very young then,
And a year was forever and a day,
So what use could fifty, sixty, seventy be?
I saw the lights and I was on my way.

And how I lived! How they shone!
But how soon the lights were gone!

The choice was yours and no one else's.
You can cry for a body in despair;
Hang your head because she is no longer there
To shine, to dazzle, or betray.
How she lived, how she shone,
But how soon the lights were gone.

    Lament - Evita: The Motion Picture


Minipainting is so fun. I finally finished my Magnus, Wizard of Hope and Eldar Warp Spider Exarch. Magnus is a bit of a throwaway mini, as most of his purchase price went to charity, so I painted him in the Überhighlighted style that most minipainters love and I detest. The Exarch is for adding to my (mostly ceremonial) Eldar Army, so he gets flashy things like my Arms on his back and a fade job on his Powerblades. tpau and I had hoped to do some mini painting together over the last year, but with me being unceremoniously banned from the Craft Room, my mini painting supplies didn't even leave my parents' house. Tomorrow, I'm going to work on my Ymrilix the False, Anti Paladin and Gragg Elfslayer, Orc King, both of which I bought for playing Earthdawn four years or so ago. Pictures forthcoming, assuming I can steal k1ttycat's digital camera.
