I'm not thinking of literary mash-ups, but full-blown fandom scenes that would be as rich and strange as steampunk. What'cha got?

Safari Chapter 19 - Unlocking the Past

Posted on April 8, 2011 at 7:16pm 0 Comments

The custodian methodically tried another key in the lock. He gave a resigned sigh and selected the next key. This was only the first room in a series of five likely candidates for the home of the Seshat.core computer. After the custodian's "ring of office" keys had proved unsuccessful, he had moved on to a collection of keys that he had unearthed in his room. There had been an earthen jar full of keys, keys pushed to…

We had a birthday party for Rachel Harrison in the chat room. Tashmoo wrote her a poem, and this was my present:



A package, colorfully wrapped, the paper printed with strange alien geometrics. Somewhat disturbing to look at.

Inside is a souvenir tea towel, from the Buried City in the Stars!



The design shows bizarre alien machinery and artifacts, labeled with alien… Continue

Miscatonic Musings

Academics. And disaster.



I attended Miscatonic University and finished my Bachelor's of Arcana (Music) degree. My senior recital of thin, monotonous piping of an unseen flute was particularly well-received. I won an assistantship to pursue a graduate degree, and was selecting a thesis topic.



Unfortunately, a friend holo'ed a performance of mine at an…

A Poem: Mad, Glorious Magpies

Posted on August 19, 2010 at 8:40pm 2 Comments

Sipping my breakfast tea, a friend ten thousand miles away
taps me, back from a shopping trip.
"Look what I found!" she crows:
A dented brass lock, a busted steamer trunk,
old pillowcases, an umbrella skeleton.


"Pay much?" "No!" "Fantastic- major score!"
Lock's on a chatelaine, pillowcases are a vest,
umbrella's bronze, with a window.
The trunk? I don't know yet.

Artist Biography

My friend Gwen needed a bio for a gallery that was showing her jewelry.


It can be really hard to write something about yourself. Hard to step back and look at yourself and your work. And we're taught that it's not nice to brag. She had this, and the gallery wanted something better.…

That does not however disban my desire for you to join.

"The Winds of Gramede" takes place aboard the GRGC: Diamond; the flagship of the Grand Republic of Garamede. The ship is on it's fifth voyage, one of diplomacy. It's headed to A location in the enemy Alliance in hopes of settling a border dispute Between two of the Alliance nations. If the GRG can settle this dispute, they may have a shot at avoiding war with the Alliance (a collective of ten nations, requiring a unanimous vote to go to war).
 My characters On the Diamond are: Queen Rachel Louise II, Captain Aria Leet, Ambassador Marcus Raven, and Cheif engineer Nicholas Carson. I control these characters for the sake of having say in all aspects and an easy reign on the plot. Simply put: I need to play these so the plot doesn't get messed up.
As for character avalibility:
Engineer; this role would involve more character interaction then anything else. Often times you would need to be in the belly of the ship, chatting with characters who were taking a strole and devoloping your characters.
Royal Guard(wo)men: This role involves allot of detailed description of both the Diamond and it's enemies. Often times you would encounter having to take orders from the Captain without much explanation, but express resentment to her the whole time (your not supposed to like her).
Ambassador: This role is clearly one of diplomacy. As the Conference of Nedar is EXTREMELY important to maintaining the armistice, A large staff of skilled ambassadors has been hand-picked by the queen to negotiate. Your job would most likly be to interact with the rest of the council, mantaine character stability (little room for development), and eventually interact with Ambassadors and the like from the Alliance.
Other: also available are: mages, mercenaries, tag-alongs, stowaways, and family of Ambassadors. Most of these characters are self-explainatiry and tend to involve a good amount of character development and interaction.
All characters will become expendable once we cross into Alliance teritory.
All characters have to be approved bye either me or my co-creator: Issac Sheppard. Any and all weapons are allowed as well as magic, enchanted items, transformations, and super-human abilities. The only stipulation is that they must be expendable or otherwise defeatable in some way. Any God-Modding will be dealt with by my Anti-Godmods and likely killed off.
