Sometimes I fail myself. But other times? I do surprise myself. It’s odd how many times I pull some random bit of information out of nowhere or figure out how to do something I thought I’d never done before. I don’t know if it stems so much from trusting myself or if it comes from somewhere else – the creative side of my brain or just a desire to try it once. No clue and not actually sure that it matters, either.
It’s one of the few things I’m proud of when it comes to me. I am a smart cookie, even if no one else ever acknowledges it in a serious way. But that’s okay because if they’re all underestimating me? One of these days, they’re going to be shocked at what I really am capable of doing and accomplishing.
( You were warned )
Fandom: White Pine original Fic (and I really probably should have thought of something better to call this series)
Pairing: Ethan McDowell/Travis Murphy aka Cranky/Trouble
Rating: PG, for some language issues, Ethan.
Word Count: 1,051
Warnings: Unbeatad as she’s in editing hell.
Author’s Notes: Took a quote from my new journal and used it as a prompt.
Short Summary: No real plot as this turned out to be a scene or half scene from the wedding fic I’m working on. Ethan rants about his family and Travis comforts him and brings him back to center.

And it comes from my favorite dark elf:
Because of the friends I have known, the honorable people I have met, I know I am no solitary hero of unique causes. I know that when I die, that which is important will live on. This is my legacy; by the grace of the gods, I am not alone.–Drizzt Do’Urden (via his scribe, R. A. Salvatore, from The Legacy)
What more can I say? Isn't this what we all strive for? To leave our mark and to be remembered, by someone, somehow? I know it's mine.
