Hi everyone.

Ended up doing some fireworks and fire last night after work for Canada Day so I was unable to do a weekly or daily story. sciborg holds the King of Writing moniker on the forum right now - if I can figure out how to give us titles a la Westeros it'll happen ;).

I just thought I'd link the Fan Fic I posted a week or so ago on TPB . I invite everyone who posted one to start a thread for informatics.

Cheers.

Lol, I realize I lack a title, there a couple glaring mistakes - no matter how much you review - and 3817th should be 3817.

Really good stuff. I think it gets a little confusing toward the end, with the skin spy - is he initially tied up?

Thanks you too. Much appreciated.

The Knight was never tied up, just rocking back and forth beneath the creatures of the Tekne - I actually took some obscene creative liberties with that one, as I'm not sure really why I thought the creature would have such depth as to pray... or even mutter words alone. Probably the scene from WLW, when the thing that was Soma and was Mimara talks to the Sranc, which was more agency then I expected considering the vapidness of the Skin-Spies with Cnaiur in TTT.

Obviously, minus a point for missing a title.

The other thing I took some liberties with that I knew I couldn't speculate too much on the Anarcane Ground within the story - I even call them the Holy Mountains once - as I thought it was easiest to assume that the Gods are somehow responsible for the Anarcane Ground.

Could just as well be an Aporetic Bomb or something that caused the damage.

That leads me to my last point. I felt that the Few, having lived with the sight of onta mostly their entire lives, would suffer somehow, at least like depression or withdrawal, so I made that somewhat central to the tale too.

As for the confusion, well, sciborg, that is the process, eh? I just hope I can get better by working at it.

Mathas fights the Knight, hand to hand - which I made more confusing with typos I caught after I posted - and then realizes he can't win, even though he's been trained by the best from all the Three-Seas. Sounds about right, as Cnaiur only beat the Sarcellus the Second by distraction.

Just thoughts. Cheers. Glad you liked it. Really tried to channel Bakker lol.

Cheers, everyone.

Honestly, Francis, I wish I'd share more with the story a day thread - you, Callan, and, especially, sciborg are inspiring on a daily basis. Its just the few times I've attempted to contribute, I've enjoyed my creativity so much, I've ended up poaching them for my ongoing trilogy :).

Church... wow. Thanks. Huge grin lol.

I thought I'd bump this to tease the lot of you.

I'll be posting my second fan fic piece to Bakker's blog tomorrow. In all the years I've been reading Bakker I've only ever had three really good fan fic ideas. The first is the aforementioned Untitled, dealing with the advent of the skin-spies in Atrithau. This next has the only little more original title, A Tale of Swayali (unless something better comes before tomorrow), dealing with the First School of Witches, the challenges this poses to a patriarchal society and to the persecuted female Few become Witches in digesting and embodying this change in social dynamic. The third (when ever I feel the creative fire in time to come) will be about the Inrithi who take up the Tusk to hunt Schoolman during one of the Scholastic Wars.

Cheers. Thanks to the Bakker & Women threads on Westeros for first inciting me to write something akin to the Swayal idea because the trials of women aren't as easily addressed in Bakker's world as people seem to think they should be. And for Quinthane, Somnambulist, and FB for really kicking me in my ass and fueling my fire with their intense and awe-inspiring artistic renditions of Bakker's narrative.

Color me teased :). Your first one was great and definitely gave me some motivation to do my own (I've only really had the one particular fan-fiction idea, but it has been nagging at me for a while so I finally gave in, and I almost never get short story ideas in general so it's good practice). Your third idea also sounds really interesting. Can't wait bro.

It is done. I'll link it when Bakker takes it from the comments and makes A Tale of Swayal its own page.

Otherwise it is there, an object apart of me, awaiting Judging Eyes ;)...
