    So.

    It was quiet.

    Not a real quiet, only the façade of silence loud with insecurities, and with torturous anticipation.

    A numb sort of quiet because it was coming again. If the silence were a color it would be grey – not pure white or wicked black, not a single color really. The kind of grey that blocks out all the other colors and just fa…[Read more]

  • You’d have thought Arsene had never seen Alessio use his powers for all the racket he was making.

    Yes it’s a stupid wall of fire, and you vanish things out of existence so I think we’re even! Water was pouring out the ceiling, even worse than most rainstorms he’d been caught it. That. was not fun.

    Arsene actually looked a lot more panicke…[Read more]

    *cough cough* Uh…what happens to them if like this character’s *cough* entire character arc revolves around him NOT being willing to accept his greed and selfish characteristics…??

    And.

    How am I gonna do this without major insta-spoilers and a huuuuuuuuuuuuge mega backstory infodump? *cracks knuckles dramatically*

    Nithel didn’t like Sherlock. Something about him grained on his chest. The lack of deference or respect for everyone else, but himself. But he knew the Star Breather loved him, so he chose love him as well, to wonder why he was what he was, even if Nithel didn’t like him. But, does the Star Breather really love this Sherlock? Does He really love…[Read more]

    Bored out of his mind. That was eXaCtLy how Alessio was feeling…

    He couldn’t afford to slow down.

    Get somewhere marginally safe. Find Arsene. Where was that idiot now? Alessio wasn’t sure whether he was more miffed that Arsene wasn’t there, or that he was really scared for him. Because it was a stupid idea to catch feelings for a bankrob…[Read more]

    “After me punks! Never bet against a ranger when death is on the line!” He whooped and dove into the mirror with- Accept your greed and selfishness.

    Nithel’s chest tightened, but he jumped up, (snatching the cloth if blind man left it), and dove through after him.

    All had to enter now, and the walls were literally closing in. No time to thi…[Read more]

    And I have another doc that’s 34,000 words… but some of those are rewritten scenes back to back. Does that count?

    Nice. So do you write chronologically (starting in chapter 1 and ending at last chapter)?

  • “You remind me of someone I used to know…” Someone spoke, not loudly, but not in a whisper. “Nathair, at your service.”

    Nithel glanced over his shoulder, brows quirked. Is he speaking to me? ‘Snake’ or ‘Serpent’ was looking at Nithel; Nithel wondered about the parents, that would name their child such. Nithel nodded to him, slowly. “Nithel,…[Read more]

  • The blind one was grumbling about glass in his foot and threatening to pick a mirror at random.

    His bleeding foot looked painful. (*Me: Go figure.*)

    He’d observed that sometimes other people wince when someone else is in pain, even if they don’t know them too well. But, he’s never experienced that, it just fascinated him.

  • The blind man was trying to get the strange substance out of one of his feet. Nithel’s feet still burned from all the sharp dust in them, but the man had a large sliver. Like a piece of metal. And he was bleeding quite a bit.

    “Ya’know what. I’m just gonna go with the one nearest me.” He said and stretched out his leg, more blood leaked from th…[Read more]

  • Nithel was just… so done. He put two fingers on his forehead and stared at the three mirrors.

    Accept your unforgiveness and vengefulness.

    Accept your anger and wrath.

    Accept your greed and selfishness.

    The first and last caused no fear in him. None at all. The second did… as he thought of times in battle where uncontrollable rage had…[Read more]

    As for my WIP, the working title is Lost City of Dragons – I tend to abbreviate it to tLCoD. Another working title is Brand of the Crypt – I hate the title though. 😑 It is SUPPOSED to be a standalone novel, but it’s also kinda a trilogy? I want it packaged as one volume, but at the moment it feels like it has three climaxes, so, I…
