Hey, some snippets!

Category: Writing and Poetry

Hey, some snippets! Enclosed in Write the Story : A Strange Request at a Piano Bar [orig. November 2020] A new hotel, the Sassafras, had opened up on the other side of town. Henry walked in, limping slightly. He had sprained his ankle after slipping on the ice outside. His face was a mask of pain. The hotel’s bar featured a huge grand piano. He made his way over to it. Then he saw River was sittin... » Continue Reading

Quest for the Relics: Marinelle 1

Category: Writing and Poetry

  Marinelle For as long as anyone could remember, perhaps even longer, the Shrine of the Oracle was held as a sacred place. No one dared to violate it, not even the elders of the Temple of Eternal Truth, who always considered the Oracle’s faithful to be heretics, and as such, their bitterest rival for the hearts and minds of the people of Anghvir. Marinelle, the only daughter of House Palomo, was ... » Continue Reading

Quest for the Relics: Kamuy 1 [Repost]

Category: Writing and Poetry

Kamuy   Kamuy glowered as these outlanders approached him in his longhall. “Talon, what the hell is this?” Talon cast off his fur cloak and stepped closer to the fire, shooting Kamuy a scornful look. As the Druid of the Children of the Sleeping Giant, only he could disrespect their high king, called the Strider, and get away with it.   “Friends in need of assistance,” was all he said. It cued a ha... » Continue Reading

So yesterday my sister told me something that really bothered me

Category: Blogging

Title's too long so I'm not giving a damn about capitalization.  Anyway. I digress.  I look up to my big sister Emily. We grew up together in the same house, but there's a four-year age gap there. This pretty much means she was about four years ahead of me in school. But yeah, yesterday she said something via text that got under my skin. The bit I bolded is what upset me. Read on for full context:... » Continue Reading

Quest for the Relics: Robidas 1

Category: Writing and Poetry

Back at it again!  Robidas  Robidas Eathelin hated the capital. He hated coming here, with its judgmental people who mocked and scorned him. Ever since his match with the Princess Allegra had been announced, the national mood towards Elves had soured. There wasn’t outright hostility or incidents of racist or xenophobic prejudice - not yet, at least, but the closer the wedding day came, he was sure... » Continue Reading

A Tribute to Chester: Life, Death, Rebirth, and How He Lives on in Memory

Category: Movies, TV, Celebrities

[TW: Discussion of mental illness] How do you properly memorialize one of your childhood idols? Are you supposed to scream, cry, and gnash your teeth? Or do you put on noise-cancelling headphones and block out the ambient noise of the outside world for a while? All of these are difficult questions to answer. I guess that’s why they’re rhetorical. It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost two year... » Continue Reading

Inhale/Exhale

Category: Writing and Poetry

Man, this was meta as fuck. I wrote this in 2009/2010 but I just edited it just now for clarity and phrasing. Happy reading! Inhale/Exhale Byron Lin Sabin hated his poisonous habits, every last one of them. Cigarettes, drinking, pot, the works… he counted himself lucky he had never gotten into the crazier stuff – the hardcore drugs like cocaine or heroin. Hell, he’d never even tripped on shrooms o... » Continue Reading

The Technician

Category: Writing and Poetry

Another unfinished tale from the olden dayes...suggestions welcome!  The Technician He hates Talkers.  But he has to put up with them once a week, every week. It’s a necessary evil in the job description, and his job isn’t easy.  “So, Mr. Caige, what brings you in today?”  The man in the tattered necktie smells of cheap aftershave and egg salad. Jareth Caige hates both of those things, another rea... » Continue Reading

Last Day on the Job

Category: Writing and Poetry

I've been hesitant to post this. I randomly found/rediscovered this the other day. But I didn't want to upload it in case I didn't actually write it, you know? But honestly, given the voice, writing style, and choice of name for the protagonist, I'm convinced it was me from another time and place - 2008 Last Day On The Job  Please disembark from the Mag-Levs in an orderly fashion…be prepared to pr... » Continue Reading

Finding That Fire

Category: Writing and Poetry

This story is probably mega sappy, but enjoy! Maybe in a rewrite I can play up the sense of magical realism... Finding That Fire Alone on the bridge that night, they stood staring up at the infinite sky. The moon gazed down as they looked up, the little patches of ice illuminated by the hazy light. Winter was fleeing now, the frost dissipating as the change of seasons renewed the earth. The approa... » Continue Reading

Rain

Category: Writing and Poetry

Looking Forward By Byron Lin Rain pelted down the day Missy Hemlock came home to Baltimore. She splashed through the splatter of the wet, biting her lip and frowning. Why was that? She had just bought these classy knee-high boots, burnt sienna with belt-buckle clasps near the tops. After such a long trip in from New York, she needed someplace she could drink, having turned twenty-one three weeks a... » Continue Reading

Quest for the Relics: Francisco 1

Category: Writing and Poetry

Francisco is actually one of my longest-standing characters. Way back in the day, he originated as Alberto Portobello, and then became Francis Patch-Eye. Finally, he became Francisco de Soto! Francisco   Cisco shielded the gravely wounded Lunette with his arm as he retracted his whip. Their situation was grim - even with his magic bullets, Cisco had no way to reload his guns. His sword was no long... » Continue Reading
