Re: Poetry, Prose & Playlists ((OOC Thread))

I used a chunk of this song for a while as my signature, and I reused it for as an epigraph for a recent post . It's not a perfect thematic match, but it closely reflects a lot of the conflict Bailey faced both with elements of Faerie and the Stolen Ones in RhyDin. "Haemoglobin" by Placebo I was han...

Re: Genesis/Metamorphosis

She set her drink down on the ledge and took a bite of her wrap. Gave her a moment to think while she chewed. “How are you getting out?” “Open a portal back to the Hedge and run like hell, because if I somehow happen to succeed at this, I cannot imagine Their Court is going to be too pleased with me...

Re: Genesis/Metamorphosis

June 18, 2019 Bailey sat at the counter of the tiny Kabuki Street ramen shop, nestled beside a salaryman in a sharp navy suit and a gyaru girl in a bright pink blouse, black shift dress, and two-tone boots in black and white with pink feathery fringe. The restaurant was tiny; jammed between a pachi...

Back to Arcadia, Part Three

The Sculptor’s Mansion Faerie We huddled at the base of the lighthouse, and I waited for something -- anything -- to happen. This trip had been too easy. Granted, most of my travels through the Hedge were lonely affairs, but I rarely spent much time there as I journeyed through the Veil. For as lon...

Back to Arcadia, Part Two

June 21, 2019 The Hedge I did not need to look behind me to know my statues succeeded in crossing through the portal behind me. I could feel them -- the five unmarked golems as extensions of my flesh and bone, Proxinho as an expansion of my will. I thought a quick series of orders to my followers. ...

Back to Arcadia, Part One

June 21, 2019 The Wilds I waited until the summer solstice fell, when the barrier between RhyDin and the Veil was thinner than usual. I did not wait because I feared I would not be able to open a portal to the Hedge without that weakness. In fact, I had honed my skills to the point where a mere spi...

Re: PRIDE DAYS

Wednesday, June 12 Bailey had been a bit busy with work and the usual tumult that came with being a Stolen One, such that he completely missed the memo that the Governor had announced a series of Pride events for the remainder of the week. So it took him completely by surprise when a giggling group...

Re: Genesis/Metamorphosis

…and place him in a familiar wooden hallway. The Annex locker rooms were behind him, towels and bloody clothes left carelessly on the benches; and before him was the meaty sound of fists on flesh, the clash of steel, and the bloodthirsty roar of the crowd. But a black painted door separated Bailey f...

Re: Genesis/Metamorphosis

May 26/27, 2019 When Bailey came back to the Celestial Tower after his night at the Annex, his statues immediately knew something was wrong. Not just because they shared a link , a connection born of the stone they were made of and that Bailey controlled. No, Bailey’s lumbering gait as he headed do...

May 21, 2019 Citadel of the Stars I sat at my desk in the Celestial Tower’s study, rubbing witch hazel lotion into my hands. As I massaged the slightly floral, slightly herbal smelling liquid into my palms, I glanced down at the clear crystal ashtray I had brought up from the Isle’s bar. Instead of...

Re: A Fat Little Unicorn Thumb Drive

April 15, 2019 RhyDin Public Library, New Haven Branch I sat in the magazine alcove of my local library branch flipping through back issues of RhyDin Wear Daily while I waited for my computer reservation to come up. Part of me was grateful that I had taken a step back from modeling and designing, p...
