From afar, A Troubadour's Ode to Celeste

Celeste,

Your wicked grin
conceals a fire within
that fears the light of day
An inner heart that warms
the soul is also concealed
within that wicked grin

You have a passion
for gold
An avarice that makes your heart
feel cold

But secretly -yes- hidden within
one day will reveal
a fire that stirs the soul
into awakening the mind
that conceals it

And then we shall see
the true beauty
of the Queen
... Celeste ...
no longer concealed
within
I think I am alive but probably not.

Cute. ^_^

So you have a thing for the "evil" girls? Here's a question for you, which is more appealing in stories: sexual tension between the evil woman and a good man, an evil man and a good woman, or an evil pairing?

Girls gone evil!

I don't particularly relish the good-evil pairings. Why? Because the good one will tend toward portrayal as a long-suffering martyr whose love remains undeterred despite the injuries and insults endured.

Maybe I'd rather see two evil ones devour each other and send each other to their respective hells. It's seems a form of justice in a sense.

That's why I earlier advocated for a Celeste/Absalom pairing. This, however, is unacceptable to most viewers/readers because Absalom is superficially ugly and Celeste is not. People like beautiful pairings only, I muse. Perhaps I am wrong but I can think of no examples to the contrary.

If I could pair the Fools as I wished I'd probably wished I never had!!

This seems to suggest Celeste (to me):

from The Rival by Sylvia Plath 1961 (1st Stanza)

If the moon smiled, she would resemble you.
You leave the same impression
Of something beautiful, but annihilating
Both of you are great light borrowers
Her O-mouth grieves at the world; yours is unaffected.
I think I am alive but probably not.

Celeste of Sun, Moon & Stars

Postby Itwast on Sat Jul 14, 2007 10:06 am

Celeste,

Bitterly you bite your lips,
Entangled are you
in another's web
A spidery trap
from which
nothing escapes

Confusion reigns
thinking is unclear
you try to remember
your pleasure
your cunning
your power

Only a flicker of light
illumines the stone walls
Omnious sounds are heard without
Someone or more
nears
You cry almost silently

Will you let them see
your vulnerability?
Is the pain too great
to conceal?
Will they feel
compassion for you?

Power may prevail in
the name of the game
you know so well
If you had them in chains
What would be their outcome?
Rescue or hope - NOPE!

Now you must deal with
an unequal situation
one you'd not imagined
you'd ever be in
Your hope now is that
you possess more than beauty!

Celeste of Sun, Moon
and Stars
A knight surely would save you
Not knowing whom he was saving
But trusting that it was
a Celestial Queen!

Goddesses
You know they have their revenge!
Yes they do.
Just read the Herstories
They are to be avenged
and they avenge!

They may play man
against man
or to the vanities of men
and in the end
they triumph
like you, Celeste ...

Spit this night out
it'll only last a spell
Celeste is just too
beautiful
to be sent to
Hell!
I think I am alive but probably not.
