So in a nutshell, I had some free time and I began humming "The Night before Christmas" to myself, and decided to put it in a Wildstar context. I've attempted to tell the story of the Aurin's in a humorous poetic manner, though I may have failed. Anyway, I've never written a poem before, so please enjoy if possible! Twas the night before Solstice and all through the land The Aurins were joyous for spring was at hand The snow parted ways as the ground was laid bare As grass sprouted forth like greentufts of hair The flowers were blooming and birds sang their songs And kragens woke up after sleep winter long The people were gleeful and mindless with bliss Till one little Aurin cried "Something's amiss!" The clouds tore apart as the sky turned to ash And something fell down with a thunderous crash Metal and fire rained down from above But the Aurin set forth hearts still brimming with love Forward they ran through the thick vine and tree Till a clearing they reached to their shock did they see A glorious titan both wounded and low With Gambler's Ruin adorning its bow The Aurin looked forth to the queen for command Queen Myala cried out "Lend those <REDACTED>s a hand!" The fire was tamed and the damage contained So waited the Aurin for all that remained A door opened up and from the inside Came forth a creature thus unrecognized The creature possessed neither long ears nor tail It opened it's mouth and said "Our ship just failed!" The Aurin accepted them into their homes Patched up their wounded and patched up their clothes The humans departed as soon as they could Their ships filled with plenty of goodwill and food Not a week barely passed since the humans had gone The Aurin were peaceful all troubles had gone But the universe cruelly took said peace away For the Dominion decided to show up that day Said the Aurin "Those you seek are gone so just leave here!" The Dominion replied with a big Planet Reaper The Aurin fought back with courage and strength But in the face of their enemies all they got was death Arboria lay in a sea of flame The Aurin waited for their lives to be claimed But when all hope was lost and the end was in sight The clouds parted once more with a bright ray of light The Gambler's Ruin broke forth through the sky Behind in the Exiles and all of their might The humans burst forth with a thunderous cry "Damn you Dominion! Our friends will not die!" Both Human and Granok laid waste to their foes The Aurin retreated to ship's mighty holds Alas Queen Myala though hard as she tried Had no choice but leave some behind as she cried The Exiles escaped from Arboria that day The Dominion remained and conquered their prey Though the battle lost and Arboria taken Someday she will be reclaimed.
