All the pain I thought I knew All the thoughts lead back to you Back to what was never said Back and forth inside my head I can't handle this confusion I'm unable come and take me away
HEY MY NAME'S PHOENIX AND I'M 18. THIS IS MAYSA. SHE'S A FOR CALORMEN. YOU CAN CONTACT ME THROUGH PM OR WHATEVER. MY OTHER CHARACTERS ARE ISOLDE & CALDER. OH, AND I LIVE IN THE EST. OTHER THAN THAT, I LOVE Y'ALL. SEE YA!
"You ask what I am as if it is an easy question to answer, as if I am even able to know. I am not sure of how I reached this point or why I made these choices, but all I know is that I have done the best I can by what I know. I pray that someday Tash will forgive my actions, as I have no hope that my family ever will. They believe me to be dead, as they have since I was fourteen summers old, and I will not counter their belief. If it is easier for them to have a dead daughter than a rebellious one, I will allow it.
"In my past life, I was the third child and only daughter of a noble family. We were distantly related to the Tisroc, though that was through bloodlines that were hard to trace and could not have been true at all. My parents behaved as though it was, showing off their status for all to see. My brothers, born just ten months apart, were and are as perfect as they were expected to be. I… was not. I have never been able to hear through my left ear, a defect that became apparent soon after I was born, and as such my parents regarded me as damaged goods. They begged the heavens to give them a sign of what they had done wrong to have such a child, but no sign ever came. I was swept away, kept in the shadows, never talked about - for my own good, I was told, but I knew better. I knew what my parents had planned for me, and the thought sickened me. I did not want to be given to someone, an object to be used, but what other future was there for me?
"They planned a match when I was fourteen, to be enacted a week before my next birthday. In response, I ran. I was a smart girl, smart enough to make it look as though I had taken my own life, and they believed it. Perhaps they had always wished I would do such a thing. It would not surprised me if they had. Through my death, they regained prominence, though the upper noble who was supposed to have me was none too pleased. It was no matter to me by then. When I ran, I buried myself in the darker sectors of Tashbaan, places no one would ever look for me. I learned to hide my femininity, for it was safer that way. A girl on the streets is a victim; a boy on the streets is an afterthought. I kept my name, as it fit my newfound androgyny well enough, but the rest of my womanhood became a deep secret. Strips of cloth wrapped tightly around my breasts, extra caution during my time of blood, and loose-fitting clothing helped my disguise. I have lived such a life for nine years now and I doubt it will end anytime soon. I am a genderless creature now, a rather feminine male on the outside, and it is my safety.
"Eventually I made connections, and the music I had worked at since I was a child became my salvation. I am a talented musician, some say, a player of multiple instruments. I am not much of a singer, as my voice might give away what I really am, but there is no need for a harpist to sing. I found my way into the circle of musicians who play at the court of the Tisroc, and they have become something of a family to me. They see me as a younger brother, and their protection is invaluable. Through them, I have gained status I would never have had otherwise. I am respected in my place, and no one is ever especially curious about me. The musicians are supposed to be mysterious, and in that respect I am no different from the others.
"There is but one thing that stands to undo my life, but it could easily be the death of me. There is a man at court now, an ambassador from some far-off place, who awakens things in my heart that I have promised never to feel. I know he believes me to be something I am not, but I cannot help the way I feel when I see him. He has kind eyes and there is a certain gentleness about him that is absent in most men, something I wish to understand. What you must know is that I would break this facade for him if I felt it would work. Just the feeling of his gaze focused towards me is enough to set my body aflame. It will not be much longer now before I cannot stand it anymore. Sooner or later, it must happen…"

she looks great! but just a couple little things I spotted. 'hey begged the gods' Calormen only has one god, Tash. Also, 'government minister.' I do not believe that there was such a thing in Calormen. The highest you could go was noblemen. and then, 'districts of tashbaan.' umm, I think they would only have different sections, not districts. makes my mind go to Hunger Games. Give a shout when these few things are fixed.
