4 days on the final countdown
4 days left . . . 57% funded with 60 backers. Thanks to Michael Shamus Mahon for his pledge.
Thanks to all the people who are trying to help spread the word for one final push, as well as those who have pledged and re-pledged to help this project come to fruition . . . I really appreciate it . . . words can really not express how greatly your support in this project has meant to me.
When I began this, I felt goofy saying, help my dream come true, because this is one of many dreams I have, but it is by far the longest fought. If it's one theme that runs clear through this series. If it is worth it, fight for it and no matter what the odds you will overcome.
This is a thread I picked up from watching humanity through the years . . . tragedies this series has seen include, Columbine, 9-11, Oklahoma City Bombing, Aurora, as well as deaths of friends, family, people in the community and the world. But the one thing that remains true through all of them. Those who carry on, come back stronger, smarter, more determined.
You, the world is like a phoenix rising from the ashes of every hardship to return and bring that fire to those around you. Fire for warmth, fire for life, fire for retribution, fire for love. Fireblade and his brother were quite literally born up from the ashes of utter desruction of the world they knew. His journey is filled with hardships, loss, love.
I believe that Fireblade should be shared with the world because it is really the world's journey. The blade, Phoenix has the ability to destroy and wreak chaos on anyone it is bent against, but it also becomes a symbol of hope and life to those it saves. Two sides of the coin, two sides of life, two sides of the world.
I hope you read this and agree. There are 4 days left to help the dream of bringing the world's story as told by myself, back to them. Bring the fire to them, someone reading it may very well realize that they too are a phoenix and can rise from the ashes.Thank you.
