Deep Thoughts

After an exciting interlude of website down last Friday, here’s some evidence of a very deep plot point that’s making some beautiful sense. My visualization tool utilizes symbols by artist Thomas Christopher Haag. The numbers 16 and 10 came together really nicely as diagrammed on a circle, which had some benefits for analysis. The use tip at the bottom is for wizards.


There are words being made for the story, as well.

I also posted this video of a talk about my process of pairing this trilogy with creating an unrelated art series! A way to help things move along.

It could be, but you look guilty too. Why, do you have a situation?
Possibly… how dangerous is your situation?
Well, how dangerous does that look? Because this is our situation, now.


laughter. This is really weird! So weird. Whoah.
Fancy meeting you here.
Well this certainly is making the most of a visit.

Draft Preview Hiatus 6/7



A callsign request comes in over the ppcd bands
Toller quickly explains his C-D alter ego, which has developed while left alone in the cockpit
he uses the night vigilante voice effect so no one knows how young he is
Asks Wendel if he can answer
Curious, she says yes go ahead!

Toller proceeds to humor counsel and wisecrack someone into shipshape
while some of his other… fans? … chime in


this was still a strange and puzzling idea to Uixtr, and most Vedani, but it was also the basis on which they were able to co-engineer a massive covert destabilizing attack on an empire that had exhibited increasing callous aggression toward their appearances, and even done horrific things to its own people in preventing possible liaison. Wherever the power lay, the Vedani had decided it was in the wrong hands, and that they themselves were in danger because of it.
