Observations on the Inquisitor

    In the year 9:41, the people of Southern Thedas were tired. The mage rebellion incited at Kirkwall had taken its toll on the region.  Fighting, collateral damage and seemingly pointless deaths were an all to common occurrence.  The collective hope raised by the announcement of the Conclave can not be understated.  The promise of the Mages and Templars meeting at last at a table and not a battlefield, under the guidance of Divine Justinia no less, was taken as a sign that the hardships would soon be over.  Few expected the war to end at the Conclave, but many expected it to be the beginning of the end, the first step to peace.

Worlds Collide Ep.2.3 Welcome to the Family

Welcome to the Family (Part 3) “All righty then,” Festus said with a big smile. “Time to get started with the tour.” He grabbed my shoulder and led me down the hall in the back. “On this floor are mostly just the utility rooms.” He pointed out certain doors as we passed. We didn’t go into any of these as they were mostly self-explanatory.  “There is the bathroom, the lavatory, and the bedrooms are upstairs.” We got to the end of the hallway where a stair well stood. From this point on, things frankly became insane. He lead me down the stairs and proceeded to usher me through a series of

Worlds Collide Ep.2.2 Welcome to the Family

Welcome to the Family (Part 2) I ran out of the house in a blind fury. It just occurred to me, that I’m not coming off as very brave in this story, but there are too important points to this. 1; this is how it really happened, and I have a responsibility to record the past as accurately as possible. 2; I’d frankly like to see how well you handle having just about everything you know about history science and reality in general being thrown on its head because you were kidnapped by monsters and snuck up on by a living shadow demon! I doubt you would have performed much better. Anyway, as I was running outside like an unabashed

Worlds Collide Ep.2.1 Welcome to the Family

Welcome to the Family (Part 1) It was seven o’clock, bright and early, just like he said. I had woken up, ate my breakfast, said goodbye to my mother-she was always an early riser-and made my way across the street. I stood there in front of his house-for what seemed like forever-just thinking. The sun was making its way over the horizon, the birds were singing, the rest of the town was conducting their morning routines, just as they had done every morning prior. It was the average morning of an average word, a logical word. I was not perfect, but everyone shared it, and to some degree, everyone knew it. It seemed perfectly normal. It

Where Did It All Go Wrong (Part 3)    Eventually, I stirred awake, bleary-eyed and exhausted. I raised my head and looked around, seeing my bedroom. There was my dresser, which was painted white on three sides-because we could never reach the back. I saw my junior magician’s kit that I’ve been using to practice tricks for years, but I was never good at it. Then, there were my walls with a big, unidentifiable stain from when I was just a baby. My mother never could remember what caused it. These same walls I had seen countless times over, put me in a false sense of security. Perhaps everything from last night had been a dream. Bu

Where Did It All Go Wrong (Part Deux)    After being unconscious for some time, I eventually stirred. Though when I opened my eyes, I really wished I hadn’t. ‘Ow, my freaking head. Wh-what the? My hands! I can’t Move my hands! Where am I? What’s going on!’ I first noticed my arms were bound behind me in rope, and I was simply lying on the floor. As I tried to take in my surroundings, I saw I was in a warehouse, and a fairly old one at that. The walls were revealed brick, the rafters were rusted and there was dust everywhere. Though I never entered the city much, I almost always went to this same supermarket wh

Worlds Collide Ep1.1 Where Did it All Go Wrong?

Where Did it All Go Wrong? (Part 1) Have you ever thought about your life in detail? Gone through the most important memories in your head and wondered “How did it come to having to win a dance contest to raise money for an orphanage?” or “How the heck did that giant pencil end up through that skyscraper?” (If those sound like odd examples to you, it’s because I don’t know what you get up to on a daily basis. If those sound like normal questions to you, then I don’t want to know what you get up to on a daily basis, weirdo.) People don’t seem to do it as much as you would think. People just focu

My Bio
I'm just a nerd with minor ADHD and a silly story.

Greetings from a humble nerd/geek.

Greetings from a humble nerd/geek.

Hello humans, elves, demigods, authors and any other people of the internet. It has finally occured to me, there are people who are watching me. On this account, and other people who have requested art of me, even though I have created nothing so far. Realizing this, I figure I might now actually create something, definitely a writing-as if I could draw. Anyway. I'm posting this journal for....some purpose. I honestly forgot why. Curse you ADHD. Anyway, um, be prepared, I guess. Keelah Se'lai.
