Outside the Starfish drift through the channel

Yet another Wild Writing piece based on a jump-off line from the poem Starfish, actually part of a line. I personally like it, because it pushed me into the lyrical realm, which is a realm that I like to visit but I’m not convinced is my natural place. But there is this central imagery thatContinue reading “Outside the Starfish drift through the channel”

“What’s going on?” I bumped into Estella as she was moving towards the bridge. “No idea, either Guppy learned how to fly or the ship’s taking us somewhere important of its own will.” The Xing did that from time to time, we knew that. Side effect of the junkyard exercise. “Let’s get to the bridgeContinue reading “Adventures Abroad the Chen Xing- Chapter 4”

Jake had a weasley voice, making his words hard to hear. I had to read his lips at some places. He was talking to H squared. “You see, Mr Fixit man, I don’t really need you. I just need you to not fix any converters, you see? So tell me why I shouldn’t just haveContinue reading “Adventures Abroad the Chen Xing- Chapter 3”

Adventures Abroad the Chen Xing- Chapter 2

When we arrived back at the Xing, Roland pointed at it and said “You’re… uh… sure you can fix the converter?” Couldn’t blame him, I might have thought the same if I saw a ship cobbled up together like that. What could we do when the only materials came from a junkyard?  “It’s a longContinue reading “Adventures Abroad the Chen Xing- Chapter 2”

Meta Fiction: Shuang Gu Sword (Double Branched Sword)

Author’s notes: this sub borrows heavily from actual Chinese history and folklore (at least, so far as the legend section goes but a fair bit was just the author adapting real history to her own use). Appearance: It is a set of two short swords (housed within the same scabbard) that weigh approximately the sameContinue reading “Meta Fiction: Shuang Gu Sword (Double Branched Sword)”

Meta Fiction- Han Yu

Appearance: An irregular shaped block of white crystalline rock, on top of which six strings of undefined material lay. Special Property: The strings of Han Yu exudes a slight chill that can be felt if one passes one’s hand close above them. However, upon actual contract with human flesh, they start to exude mild warmth.Continue reading “Meta Fiction- Han Yu”
