The story behind this, about an automaton girl, Rena, from the Renaissance, and her fragile crystal heart started a while ago, for a friend.

She liked the idea; as she said, crystals, even quartz, have some remarkable properties.

Is there a ceremony for getting to the next level? One of my professors told me that at graduation the Dean whispers a secret word, like Freemasons.

But, the Dean said that they didn’t do that anymore.


Nota Bene:

Rena, other characters, and scenarios are my original creations.


One time, in shop class, all the soldering irons were busy.

So, I just grabbed a pair of tongs and stuck the metal in the flame.

That wasn’t the assignment; but, it did work.

The teacher said it must have been a memory from the Collective Unconscious.
