Celadon : A pale, watery green, with undertones and shades of ethereal golden browns. Evocative of cool, shallow, still pond waters and spring’s delicate new leaves.
Darkness, Light, and Shade
Braindumping some deity concepts that’ve been rattling around in my head for many years. I like the turnaround of light being the destructive force and Shadow the protective, and Darkness/the void just churning away in the background, all powerful but uncaring and/or unthinking, like sentient mathematics.
Thimbleful Thursday: Packing Heat
The nights were getting colder. Within a day or two, it would be too cold to make the journey to the caves on the southern island. Unless they wanted to walk across frozen seas. The prospect did not appeal; the village had to move now. Anii gathered her family’s firestones from the hearth, the sigils … Continue reading Thimbleful Thursday: Packing Heat
A friend posted this elseweb, and the AI drone thing was the first idea that popped into my head, so I thought I’d explore it a bit.
Infinity One, the Reviled of Mars – the AI-piloted drone that sparked the Worlds War on the heels of the Singularity.
Selkie’s Song, Prologue

So I’m pretty much where I started. :p
Things That Have Had My Attention This Week
I’m stealing a page from K.M. Weiland’s book since my attention tends to jump all over the place. It’ll be interesting to look back at the end of the year and see what stuff grabbed me the most.
Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy Idea
Brainstorming. Devastation strikes a human world, and the methods the people use to save themselves spawn the races of a post-apocalyptic fantasy setting.
I have apparently found a thing I’m pretty good at making, though I haven’t started really experimenting with it yet. I’ve made this chili about four or five times just in the last few weeks, and it’s been a hit every time. I got this recipe from a coworker and spruced it up just a little. It comes out really tasty and isn’t terribly expensive to make. I think including the beef, it’s usually around $15 or less, and these numbers make about 10qts of chili (it fills my little crockpot to the brim).
Okay, picture this: It’s full dark, and you’re driving down the highway…
