Breaking News From Samsara (Another 3-way Collab)
I.
the age of tyrants comes again;
hands now collapse to fists.
systems collapse under strain,
too weakened to persist.
burning bridges make us islands;
divided houses cannot stand.
burning bridges
burning bridges
ignite the ever-fraying strands.
II.
the age of tyrants comes again;
lollypops swung like clubs
with grasp size ‘S’ for Simple men
beat lancets ground to nubs.
flaying skin off candy visions
needs chirurgical precisions;
flaying skin off
flaying skin off
only sharp minds make incisions.
III.
the age of tyrants comes again
for the tots who rule all roosts
want more icecream cones and loud yesmen
and endless ego-boosts.
still the world looks on in warning
“WHAT, YOU’RE DYING? GAWD THAT’S BORING!”
still the world looks
still the world looks
(and keeps looking) for the morning.

Nukshannuk of the Spear and Two Dragons
(A fireside story by Mapak Tellapillak)
This is a tale from the lands behind the mountains, a place where one can be born and die and never know sand, or trees, or rain. It is the place of the Long Dark, but also of the Midnight Sun.
There lived a tribe that hunted the black seal. Only the bulls – never the cows or calfs, until one day Crixis, a young but terrible dragon arrived and demanded she be given fresh meat each day. The hunters of the tribe now killed bull and calf and cow alike, and it pained them because now there would be no seals left before the season was done... But if Crixis did not receive her meat she would swoop down and take a hunter, a sleigh-dog or a child for her meal and place their clean bones amidst the icicles of her cavern. The people of the tribe, in secret, gathered their belongings and in one trek moved elsewhere, where they hunted the white eider even if there were only few. Meanwhile, Crixis had followed and found them and once again, started dema

Song of the Fairies
If you would live on Fairy-land, human, know the code:
Seeing fairies in procession, kindly leave the road
Make way for the Folk as they go by in shiny light
come find ‘m in the Fairy Ring, all on a moonless night!
Invite us to all your weddings – we might come, or not
To ignore us is to spite us even if we’ve got
a pony as a groom’s gift, and earrings for the bride
come find ‘m in the Fairy Ring, all on a moonless night!
A knife should not be left in meat, salt not on the floor
Silver is an offence: don’t place it on the door
Leave no hatchet in the log, leave not your tools outside
come find ‘m in the Fairy Ring, all on a moonless night!
Following these Fairy rules, our peace can’t be disturbed
We reward humanity with luck and healing herbs
Bronze torcs for giving fairies a shelter from the cold
and sure death for those who come and dare to steal our gold.
We charm the snakes, we tell the wolves whom they cannot bite
No lightning strike

Mutiny on the Way to Damocles
    “Mrs. Orientation Video kindly sends her regards, seeing as she couldn’t be here tonight – courtesy of you fine lot not respecting ‘lights out’ regulations and in so doing, losing your holovid privileges for the rest of the day.” Warden Gobelin seemed to grin behind his respirator mask when he swam further down to hook a foot behind the floor rail and steady himself. “Which is a shame, because we arrive at Damocles station in three hours.”
O’Byrne resented the Warden for exactly this type of thing – rather than doing his job keeping the peace, he let things get out of hand and then dared to gloat from behind his pane of impact glass. His penalties for disobedience were nothing more than petty pestering. But O’Byrne be damned if he and the other inmates weren’t fed up with withheld desserts, stupid lights-out rules and now removing any chance of watching a movie for the last time before checking into t

... my LiliWrites I'm basking in its wisdom, rather, like a cat in the sun. Like an old hippy in a Jefferson Airplane classics marathon, like a basking shark in a basket during basketball season... You get the point.


LitVid Series 1: Death of the AuthorWhat Is This?
I love YouTube. I probably spend about as much time on there as I do on DA, and I've come across some really great channels in my time. This will be a bi-weekly journal series in which I share a video from YT that discusses a topic about storytelling, literature, poetry, or otherwise writing-related themes. If you have suggestions for videos I should feature, shoot me a note!
After the video, feel free to participate in the discussion questions!
NOTE: The following video contains lewd language and spoilers for The Fault in Our Stars by John Green as well as The Harry Potter Series and the related Fantastic Beasts Series by JK Rowling. If you have not yet read those books/seen those movies you are warned.
But also, what rock have you been living under? Like, is it really big? :?

Last time we discussed Character Backstory. This week we are shaking things up a little bit. Instead of a video focused primarily on the mechanics of writing, we're watching one that may help inspire you to try new things in your own writing. I hope you'll enjoy the video as much as I did!
Feel free to participate in the discussion questions at the end of this journal, or just to leave your thoughts about the video! :)

Honestly, I have no idea about the llamas either. But I like to spread them around like a vicious cold! I've left a llama trail all over dA by now; it's quite easy for me to see where I've been before. It's handy, actually.
