Saints or Sinners by kovah Saints or Sinners by kovah
"They had been running for hours, tripping over branches in a frantic bid to escape. They just wanted to be left alone, they had done nothing wrong, how could something that felt so natural be wrong? Their pursuers disagreed, they were evil; a blight on the face of humanity. The Lord had decreed that magic was a sin and if they would not stop using it they must be cleansed in holy fire of the pyre.

The children finally fell exhausted to the floor and their mother had not the strength to carry both. She rounded on the men that had quickly caught up, her chest heaving and eyes darting around in desperation and finding nothing but death everywhere she looked as more and more men streamed towards her. There was nothing for it and she began to mutter the arcane words, if they wanted a witch she would give them a witch.

The magic burst from her fingers forming itself into an terrifying creature to protect her children from the pyre that awaited them if they were caught. Saints and Sinners, but which was which?"

The combination of the story and the image is really good, neither overwhelms the other.

Just goes to show that too much zeal can be a dangerous thing; after-all, the brightest lights can cast the longest shadows.

Very well done.

Very touching!

I'm not against the religion at all but I'd say the woman is the Saint! :p
