"If men had wings and bore black feathers, few of them would be clever enough to be crows."
--Henry Ward Beecher
There is always an event in a person's life that either makes them or breaks them. It is a trial of sorts, a testament to make us who we are to become for the rest of our days. But some events are so overwhelming, the damage done can't be fixed and the lesson learned is worthless. Especially if such events were physically thought impossible, and unable to be explained.
How would one face an enemy who is both good, evil, smart, but selfish? How could it be that the individual is dead but breathes, who is a ghost yet tangible? How is it that those eyes, those beautiful eyes, hold the key to hell?
Quatre Raberba Winner is about to begin his trial as he experiences innocence lost, love, hate, lust, humility, friendship, anger, vengeance and murders of crows.

The Murder Saga: Updates Page
Because of all of the changes I'm going to be making and doing just on this series alone, I've decided to make an update page exclusively for this. I didn't want to clog my other updates page with revisions. I'll use that for actual updates to TFM, and any other sidestories that may come along.
