Into the light of the dark black night
Strong, gifted woman seeks equally strong and noble man from a completely different culture and society to help me face a cold, deadly, and frightening challenge, and stay by my side as I come to terms with my chilling gift and lifelong responsibility and move from first love to true love. You must be willing to watch me die and trust that although I’m cold and lifeless, I will be back to be with you.
