All four dragons were couched resplendent in simultaneous multiplicities of form; each doing all and more at once according to their type, they sat beneath, floated above, roosted in, and activated around their trees as their forms examined each others’ forms. They spent a while doing only that, noting details about each other. Then they began to talk about things that were different now.

Being of new growth and unfolding, Myricotl expressed sorrow at inevitable effects of the Viridian Phasing on the dimensional senses in this generative of newly occurring life developing in those areas. All would bear marks of it. ‘E couldn’t rectify it or tell what would happen, only that things would be coming out surprising where that wasn’t already the case. This kind of massive life-conditional shift was upsetting to Myricotl, regardless of whether it was a timely manifestation of a statistically natural stochasticity. Given an opinion, ‘e doesn’t wish to engage in it. Expected booms may not occur.

Ottokad’s conceptual parameters of interaction with the Pan-Galactic Imperium were going to change to inaccuracy while all this was happening. ‘E stopped working almost completely in the Imperium, and the one or two things to which ‘e could lend erself took a great deal of energy. One task might take half a day. Ottokad was certainly missed, but ‘e couldn’t take professional responsibility for work during the phasing if ‘e was participating. Organizing principles of integral structures would be in the usual hands while the dragon applied er efficacy elsewhere. Fixatives and cements wouldn’t be working as well, especially the ones based on eyvea. People would have to compensate for that.

Saga was quiet, mulling over contemplations without saying anything. The dragon looked faraway, listless and detached, holding er peace. This did not seem good to anyone. Where was the story? Where was it going? Saga watched them pointedly in silence, face serious but kind.

Though these weren’t all the dragons excluded by the phasing, they gave Arkuda better insight to ramifications and difficulties for those who were essentially locked out and deterred from their places, as a result of their not participating in the phasing tunes which altered the dragonroads.

It was so nice to see these three again. It hadn’t been such a while since previous meetings, but certainly longer and farther between. They matched scales with each other, turning their forms into various alignments. Scalepoints gleamed together like stars in the same sky. Their scales reflected the knowledge, realities, and life connections etched into that part of the dragon; they reflected these things to each other, matching pieces for new learning. They weaved around each other, together then apart.

A flower bloomed in Arkuda’s thoughts, denoting time’s arrival. ‘E quietly, unfussily left Golden Apple River.

Fire On All Sides Reissue; New Free Download Audiobook Readings; Upcoming Featuring Phutureprimitive

To recap a well-discussed plan, Fire On All Sides will soon be reissued with correct agendered dragon pronouns. This will come before the release of Book 2, The Enfolding Abyss.

The 3rd Sequence of Fire On All Sides audiobook readings on the Eva Elasigue Bandcamp are now available free to download, as well as the 1st & 2nd Sequences featuring music by Kalya Scintilla. The sound quality of the 3rd Sequence is improved with mastering by Christopher Brakk Staven, though music has not been added, since…

The audiobook project for Bones of Starlight, hosted first on Bandcamp, will start anew after the reissue of Fire On All Sides. I’m thrilled to say that this will be made with the music of electronic DJ, Phutureprimitive!

His music is singular and unique in its approach: Lush melodies drift across intricate rhythms, groove heavy beats and warm, fuzzy bass lines. Often exploring a dark and dense palette, he also manages to convey a sense of tranquility and beauty, engaging the listener into hypnotic movement and often escalating toward a physical experience. Conceived and produced in a digital environment, the music manages to convey more humanity and organic warmth than typically found in an often cold and sterile genre. Shimmering with cinematic qualities, he speaks to both the mind and body.

The above logo art happened to be made in the same month as my first writing studio sublet 3/14, which taught me a lot about how I could grow as an artistic creator. Here’s to the landmarks of a journey.
