Welcome to another week of music videos. Hope this is hitting the right mark and people are enjoying these. Today, we have Prodigy of Rainbow Tower where Nyx made her debut. A lot of action and traveling happened here. Really got to flex the world-building skills too.
This song has no lyrics and is all about the energy. I had a lot of fight scenes in this book and it’s where I started cutting my teeth on them. So, something like this really makes me think of all of the battles that Luke, Nyx, and their friends went through while traveling down the L’dandrin River.
I was really trying to think of something other than this one because it seemed way too obvious. Nyx depends a lot on fire and explosive magic. Yet, I did play this one a lot long ago when I was writing this book. Never really listened to the lyrics, so she isn’t that twisted, but she is a fire-starter. Another fast-paced song too.
This song has a big defiance aspect to it that works for Luke and Nyx. Both of them have dreams and goals that require pushing against others. Luke is out to prove himself and Nyx has been raised to save the world. Both paths require them proving that they can do it through actions.

I was going to be more upbeat today, but I got a thought stuck in my head. I couldn’t shake it loose. You ever have an opportunity that passed you by? We all do. Maybe we missed it because we weren’t paying attention. It might not have looked like one when we first saw it. This might turn more into a ‘tell your story’ thing. Why?
One type of loss of opportunity came to mind. It’s when one is stolen from you. Maybe not you, but someone you care about. I was thinking about someone in my life and the opportunities that they have had over the years. Then, I realized that several of them were missed because of a third party. That has to be the most agonizing one and had me spinning my wheels. Even noticed times in my past where I was undone from smart moves due to other people. I realized that this happened in two general camps:
- The other party simply forgot to relay some information that could have help. You either find out after the fact. This is an honest mistake even though it can cause anger and frustration.
- The more malicious one is when a person withholds information or makes a move that actively removes your opportunity. This one hurts. It could be done because they see it is a mistake, but there are times when they purposely want to get in the way. Could be someone that wants the opportunity for themselves or wishes to urge you onto a different path instead of the one that is about to succeed. I’ve been the victim of this one once or twice in some arenas.
Now, I’m not sure where else to go with this idea. I realize that I’ve stated my point and that’s really all I had. No idea how to identify this or what to do about it. Maybe I’m just trying to toss this into the open. Anybody else have something to add? Personal story or advice? Let’s converse and see if I’m just being silly.
