Quoth the Raven: The They on the Ether

Over at Terrible Minds, Chuck Wendig does a “flash fiction challenge” using this random story title generator. I gave it a spin and I’m actually really interested in the results! I’ll be posting a small fic once a week or so, nothing fancy, just going to post the title or the prompt and roll with it. You’re all welcome to play along or shoot me a prompt to add to my list of prompts and dates.

Today’s prompt is: The They on the Ether

 

Quoth the Raven: The They on the Ether

There is an atmosphere that is between physical and mythical and it’s far and away where the most dangerous things dwell. They wait at the border in hissing contempt for those who live on either side. It’s a combined three realm effort to keep them contained.

This means, of course, that they aren’t always going to be where they should. They’re not very polite and they don’t follow rules. I’m not going to get into the whole rulebook or the orders of knights or libraries on you. That’s just too much and it’s all common sense or nonsense depending.

Just be aware that sometimes it’s best to lock your door and draw the window shades tight. Listen to that feeling you get that creeps up the back of your neck when you walk by a mirror and refuse to look yourself in the eye. Those little notions aren’t all that silly, you never know what will look right back at you.

I’m not here to scare you at all, just to make you aware. Sometimes you’ll get that feeling walking by a person too. You listen to it extra careful then. Those are the ones that got out of the mirror.

Breath of Fire Series: No, Seriously, Let’s Talk about Nina

Another Guest Spot at nerd Person Narrative!

The following is  guest post written by the wonderful Lily Xavier. You can check out her blog here.

I make no secret of my deep, burning, and rather passionate love of the Breath of Fire Series (Yes, I even enjoyed Dragon Quarter).  I’ve recently found myself going back and playing Breath of Fire IV with my fiancée as she’s never played it before. Unlike other games that I loved as a youth, the story of Breath of Fire IV and the characters still move me. Each character is realized as an independent being with drives and personality, even from the very first rendition of the series. One of the reoccurring characters in every Breath of Fire title is Princess Nina Wyndia.  When I read about the most compelling and strongest female characters in videogames, I’m always a bit disappointed that she’s left out. Why do I think that Nina…

New Things!

One small article for the internet, one giant leap for yours truly! I’ve been published by my dear friend, Robyn Miller on her blog, Nerd Person Narrative. I’ll be doing a few little guest spots there about gaming. My SEO work is also picking up and I’m feeling pretty good about writing professionally.

 

I’m really getting into looking at fandom and the interactions within them. There’s something really magical for me about watching how people interact and share ideas over media. The collective mentality when watching something like the Welcome to Night Vale fandom  interact is fascinating.

But for now, I’ve got a lot of other balls in the air and I’m working on scooping them up. I’ve recently opened up a twitter and a tumblr, feel free to follow me for smaller posts and updates!
