Author’s Note: Written for mithen's ShuffleFic Challenge A at worlds_finest. Prompt: Asleep On A Sunbeam. :)
Once upon a time, the World was divided into Light and Dark, and never the twain did meet, one half perpetual Light, one half perpetual Dark.
One day the Prince of the Light grew curious and ventured into the Dark, meeting its Prince, and he knew that it was Good, for he knew in his heart that while the Dark needed the Light’s golden rays to pierce its Darkness and kindle passion, exposing that which dwelled in the inky depths that needed exposing, the Light needed the Dark, its cool shadows of contemplation and mystery a balm, like wind chimes twisting in the breeze, because there are things in this World that should stay a mystery.
So the Prince of the Light coaxed and cajoled, never losing faith, never losing patience, and finally the Prince of the Dark came into the Light and knew that it was Good.
They danced in the light of the silvery Moon, surrounded by Stars as endless as the Sea, and fell asleep on Sunbeams, each with his own music as light and melodic as the Song of the Celestial, and when they came together in a sweep of silk, the World was no longer divided, Light piercing Dark and Dark shadowing Light, and they knew that it was Good.
