Woe to Jester: Torvan Clemens
Torvan Clemens swept a hand over his brow as he slumped down onto the chair behind his desk. The desk was not a power play, as many would often imagine, but he found a certain security in sitting there, particularly after a day such as the one he had just endured. Warm sunlight spilled through the little window in the corner, gradually turning orange with the approach of evening and the time that he would be able to clock out, but as he sat there, he felt unsure that he’d be able to do it --be able to leave, that is, with a clear conscience. If he did manage to leave, he knew with grim certainty that sleep would elude him that night.
He listened to the sound of a group walking by on the street, a cluster of teens laughing out loud to something he hadn’t heard. He wondered how fast the rumors had spread. Did everyone in town know already? What were they thinking? Were they going to lose sleep tonight as much as he was?
The fact of the matter was, with the exception of

Woe to Jester: The New Leaf
Perhaps I did not understand the gravity of my departure just then. It felt like escape to me. Like liberation, perhaps, from I know not what.
* * * * *
It was evening by the time I arrived at the next village --which, truly, was a city by comparison: huge buildings rising up three, four stories tall. Walls of exquisite granite and polished stone. Roads as wide as rivers where people steadily milled about here and there and children flit to and fro like little fish navigating the current. When I came upon it, I found my spirits lifted by how grand and new and so very different it all was from that humble mountain town whence I had come. Here those little sprites would not skip along behind me in twos and threes as I walked the lanes of the marketplace. Here they would not flash too-wide smiles and greet me at every street corner like I was some pet come to grace them with my presence. Here they would not have me sit at their dinner tables out of some peculiar desperation to play

Woe to Jester: Elevator Pitch
People are strange: let's start with that. Now, drop a masked and voiceless stranger in the middle of a war, and what do people do? They name it. They invite it to dinner. Such is Jester's plight. His life is one of hiding in plain sight, watching, being treated as a pet anomaly-- that is, until the townsfolk get a little too curious.

Woe to Jester: The Revelation
Wow writers block has been hitting me hard, but I'm so pleased to have finally managed to write some more! Over the last... <cough>year<cough> I have started and restarted this chapter oodles of times, but nothing ever felt right. I took a break and spent a lot of time reflecting on Jester and the story and all sort of things. The next attempt --this one-- is the one that gained momentum. This is one that I'll probably come back and polish at some point, but for now I think it's time to start moving forward. :) 

As always, constructive feedback is more than welcome! I'm always curious to hear about interpretations, predictions, and general impressions.

Thank you for reading!
