What’s new?

Posted on

This post breaks over a year’s worth of silence here (outside of a few Anecdotes posted to make my father happy on his birthday!). There have been a lot of changes in my life. People who follow me closely likely already know the story. Those of you who don’t can use your powers of observation to draw some conclusions, or you can ask me. I have lived in Appleton, WI for over 1 year now, and I am pleased to announce that I have gone into business with some truly wonderful people here. I am proud to be part of more »

Anecdote LXIII. Seen and Unseen

Posted on

The morning after my first round of psychosis, I was transferred to locked ward in Richmond. It only took me a few hours to talk and hassle my way out and back to freedom, but others were and would be there far longer I was. When I arrived, I was assigned a room and sent of to wait. There were no private rooms, so when I arrived at the room, there was a woman inside, sitting on the bed, staring at the wall. She only glanced at me when I entered. “Hi,” I said, taking a seat on the free bed. more »

October 1, 2013 As the sun rose toward noon, the seven Luminari gathered in the tower of Del Sayronet. With them was Wyatt the Eldest, with Lask’s cloak around him, which would render him invisible to Dark eyes. They had divided themselves into two groups, and were a fearsome sight; Lask stood before one of the doors in the tower, gleaming in his golden armor and crimson cloak, sparks already swirling around his hands.

Anecdote LX: The End for Maliz & Chankel

Posted on

Fragments of Darkslaying. May 5th 2015 When the door burst inward, Falient was thrown back from it to the side of the room. There was a deafening explosion. The force shattered the stained glass, blowing it out in thousands of pieces into the yard beyond. Black shrapnel flew, biting into everyone around the table. There was a mad cacophony of screams and roars. Over it rang a harsh, grating voice, coming from somewhere beyond the door, “No Light will come to Maliz, but death will come to you.” Whipping wind was blowing through the door, stale and swirling with Dark more »
