Aish of a Grey Lion: A Storm-Dance Short Story (part 2 of 2)

“Aish of a grey lion,” he said. “Where are your claws?” They stared at each other, Niobe sick to her stomach. He had done it. He had gone out into the eseteij and cried out for change. Why now? No, she knew why. Either the Teeshlawat Fyareng had survived or one of his followers continued in his name. Which didn’t matter. They were recruiting again, both children and from the old ranks of child-soldiers. Even if she rescued the child,

Aish of a Grey Lion: A Storm-Dance Short Story (part 1 of 2)

The sharp scent of pine a stab through her nostrils, Niobe kept her eyes on her target as she wound her way through the trees.

Anime Your Characters: The ‘These Other Doors’ Edition (part 2)

Last time, you got to see the anime versions of the main characters of two of the stories of These Other Doors (created using this dress up game), entitled The Tree Remembers and Mermaid’s Grotto. For this post, none of the stories have proper titles yet, so thank goodness for code names. Two of these I haven’t started writing yet, but I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and planning for them, so that’s where all of this is coming from.
