The Dead Whale Shark

As I made my way passed Splithoof Crag, I stopped suddenly and looked back at the full moon. The reflection of her shown on the slightly wavering water below me. Dimly lit stars littered the night sky, diluted by the immaculate brightness of Luna.

I sat there on my Black War Kodo, reminiscent on the days when the Thousand Needles was barren with towering mesas. I still remember when Shinozaki, then Capricorn was adventuring into the land when he noticed a young curious Orc, clearly too inexperienced wander into his view. She popped around a boulder, cautious not to get spotted by any potential hostiles around the area. Capricorn asked her if she needed an escort, but in her anxious and adventurous state, the only words that came out of her lips were, “I will probably die here.” It was a possibility, but she was in the presence of a decorated veteran of hundreds of Alterac Valley battles, where he lead at the head of the pack, charging into the enemy, breaking their lines and scoring numerous victories. She was in no danger.

After Capricorn followed her for a bit, she made camp inside an empty cave and bid him farewell. He gave her some advice and continued on his journey.

That was a good ten years ago. So much could change in such a short period of time. Thousand Needles as it is now, is a flooded valley full of ruin and a giant dead whale shark laying at the bottom of the Shimmering Deep.

Leemanism is about my views, my thoughts, and my feelings with as little filtering as possible. These concepts are not reflected in the people I value and are associated with. People who accept me, adhere to the parts where we are compatible and tolerate the parts where we are not. So however people perceive me to be, ultimately it obviously doesn't mean the friends I mention in this blog are the same as me. It means it's possible they are similar or the same, as well as different than me. It is highly unusual for people to be completely compatible with each other.

With that out of the way, and to make things clear, I never said I am a good person, nor am I trying to be one, though I would rather live with the empathetic than with the cruel. I would not deliberately do harm. I rather stand up against injustice than to pretend it doesn't exist. However, I understand consequences. The police is there to enforce the law, but not deter crimes from happening. Which means people must do what they must do to protect themselves, before the law of the land takes over and even then, the law of the land isn't there to protect you. It's there to protect the general consensus. Even if you may be right, society may deem you wrong - even most of your friends may side with society, than protect you. The law will almost always side with society.

We are few. Stay safe. (•̀ᵥᵥ•́)
