An Ode to Vox Machina (2)

Critical Role allows me to imagine anything, to follow stories of fictional characters that mean just as much to their creators as they do to the fans. It’s a story to look forward to, whether I’m driving or waiting for the show to start live streaming. It’s a story I can feel free in, because anything can happen. Anything does happen. And their reactions are just as genuine as anyone’s.

So here’s a little nod to three characters I love just as much. Can you guess who they are?


Child of the goddess,
shining bullet through the sky,
stealthy plate mail a marching band.
Heal, protect, watch,
anger that you were not there,
building shrines, faith,
watchinf friends break,
voice of reason, optimism,
your light is never gone.


You left.
You claimed they never cared, so you left.
You watched from the sidelines,
the Meat Man, the Spice Fan,
and yet you came back once you left.

You inspire.
Words are too quick, you inspire.
You cut with your tongue,
with your wit and your lies,
you give of yourself and inspire.

You play on.
You mastered the music, play on.
You roll and you fight and inspire,
shit on the beds and spit fire,
you keep moving on, so play on.


Shapes, colors, and ale,
I would like to frenzy rage.
My strength is my friends.
