In the eyes of Aravoen

Hello wonderful and simple people of the world. Today I bring you the first of many (I hope that is the case) posts about my second favorite character. Well I have written many characters in this small world of ours. i remember Samuel the king of Dune at age 8, Samimiru the stealth samurai, Phillip Connor the boy wizard of wonder before I finally settled on Aravoen Elurin Ervudur. Well I might be spoiling this but what the hell.

As you have noticed I had an obsession with my name in all my heroes at a young age. I always thought that if a name did not have my name in it then it was a rather foolish thing. I never knew that I could come up with a name without meaning to. Well I was watching Lord of the Rings and yes I was in like with Aragorn to a very bad extent hence I drew my hero round this man. Yes, Aragorn influenced the birth of Aravoen and I hope none of you think it is a plagiarizing thing I did because i will vehemently defend myself.

That is why I am giving you this little tidbit about the main hero of my just published novel: The Easel Chronicles: The Golden Gates.

Aravoen is the son of two noble houses. His mother Eleonor was a scion of a noble elf house, The House of Pathamiar the sons of Teldarian, while his father was the Hidden Prince of Eduin and heir to the thrones of the half elven. The history of the royal house of Eduin is vast and hidden in histories long written and saved that it might bore you to bed but that will be for another day.

 He was a boy that became a man through the things he saw and he was one that never knew the meaning of pure joy. The times he felt he had found it, there was a sacrifice and at times sacrifice s what drives him. His heart is built to repay the sacrifices of those that die for their belief in him. he has a heart of gold but not the purest gold. The elf in him will make him a better and more astute man but the half elven part of him makes him more mortal than he is meant to be.

Aravoen will not standby and let things happen as they are not meant to happen. Although he believes in the greater good he will not allow that good to come at the expense of those that are innocent for that good.

So who is Aravoen? To me he is the good parts of me that I let the world see. He is not the darkness that is in all of us. He has a heart and knows not to impose that is just who he is. He will not beg, he will not curse but he tries to fight the darkness that is everywhere. Just look out for my book on Amazon and Barnes and Noble to make your own opinion of Aravoen.

PS: This is my own opinion of my hero....We are all entitled to view people as we wish. I will leave you with a quote from the book:

"Hope for the best and be prepared."

The duty of man is the bane of man. How creepy could that be. Anyway, where are my manners? Hello, Hi, Good Morning, Good Afternoon, Good Evening etc. I have no clue as to what time it is anywhere in the world apart from here in my sappy room.

So it is Febuary; the ugly month of love. Well for the coupled people it is the lovely month of love. It is not that I have something against the whole notion of love and its  encompassing emotions, but I have had enough of it. I have seen enough chaos in 2012 to say the whole notion is doomed for my generation.

It might just be me but the whole world is out there. People have forgotten the true meaning of love in this day and age. Love is not in the car you drive; it is not in the clothes you wear; it is not even in the words that you say; it is not in spreading it in one day. It is in your actions. People think that showing that person you care on Valentine's day is something big but it is not. I rather show them I care for all the other days in the year but ignore that one day.

Men will go broke. They will waste money on things that are being sold exorbitantly. Roses that will wilt in a few days, bottles of wine that will be empty in a few hours and the sappy sappy gifts that will be forgotten in moments. That is what we spend on for the sake of one day where we are not appreciated. The females will blow their angry horns like wild pigs and make us regret why we spent the money in the first place.

I should ask the ladies a few questions. Well ladies of my you older and respectable ladies might relax. Do any of you know how much planning men put into that day? No. Do you even repay the men with a kind thank you or gentle smile and give him a day or two with no nagging? No. Do you even bother to see the small things he ,in this case being we the men, does the rest of the year? I doubt that.

Girls today don't notice the small things that we do for them. They never have and never will. I just hope that one day the whole world realizes that Febuary is the worst month but it can be the foundation of a better year for love. That is if we can sort ourselves out and get it in our heads that the world is better off with men not being so bothered about the damn Valentines Day.

Forgive the incohesion in my rumblings today. I have no answer for that one today. I am weirdly tired of the whole chaotic nonsense the young couples are going through today as 14th closes in.

It is not in the material things,
It is not in the things left around,
It is not a thing to be looked down on.
It is in the little things,
in the simple things,
in the smiling things and...
It is in the hearts of all men.
Just look...
Just smile...
Just wait...
and the small things will reveal it.
