This is for =Sammur-amat
's contest WRITTEN IN THE STARS, which can be found here: [link]
The theme of this? To write a prose or poetry piece about your zodiac sign and include a wee bit of Latin.
Alternatively, you can use your favorite zodiac sign, which is what I did since I've already written about Aquarius. Obviously, this is about Leo.
Leo is actually my favorite for two reasons: I love the Lion King and my favorite character in an anime/manga called Fairy Tail is Loke, who is the representation of the celestial spirit Leo. ad lucem
means "to the light" in Latin, and I believe it makes sense because Leo's fixed element is fire. Their planet, of course, is the sun. And the constellation of Leo resides between Cancer and Virgo, hence why I mentioned a "virgin" in the piece, since Virgo is the virgin. Leo is also the fifth sign of the zodiac, hence "five times around the sun."
I really like this one. It may not be up to standards to get very far in the contest, but I really like how it came out! Please go check out =Sammur-amat
