Here it is, Chapter 37: A Place in the World.
And that’s it for a while. My focus has gone elsewhere. At some point I’ll finish this book for reals and it’ll be published, and then the fourth book will come, but I can’t say when that’ll be.
See you later!
New Wandering Fortunes chapter! Alden has reached the dungeon, only to find the princess gone. Will he be caught, or will he find where the princess was taken and get to her? He’ll need to think quickly to get out of this dungeon optimally.
Wandering Fortunes Chapter 30: A Friendly Deed
Here we are, the beginning of the climax. Alden fell in love with Princess Serani, but now she’s been captured by an enemy kingdom. He joins the Salenth Kingdom’s military to try and save her, with Top taking up distraction duty. But Alden will find more than the princess here. He’ll have to juggle his goals until he figures out a way to make up for things.
There’s something big going down at the border of the Salenth and Thraundlus Kingdoms. In Wandering Fortunes Chapter 29: Friend Missing; Love Gone! Alden finds his search for Ropak derailed when they stumble upon a Salenth Kingdom military camp. He gets himself involved in a big mess with Top and other friends to back him up, but he’ll have to rise himself to the occasion for this challenge, both to tackle it and to even get in it.
This chapter leads into what is basically the climax over a series of chapters. We’re heading into action for the rest of this story, get ready for a ride!
I mean obviously it was April Fool’s day, I wasn’t really going to start writing horror, I’d done this before, but still, it was interesting writing in the horror genre for this story!
A bit of backstory on it: I’d originally thought of the idea of having a Slenderman-type character be elected president back when I’d watched Marble Hornets (years ago before it’d been even close to finishing) because the idea of a tall, thin, gaunt fellow in a suit just kind of… made me think of Abraham Lincoln? The honesty part reflects that. But when I started researching Slenderman I discovered that the original mythos for it suggested that Slenderman captured large groups of children, forcing towns to give them up, and I went
wait a minute
There was something in the news not too long ago about children being forcibly removed from their families, WASN’T THERE???
So it ended up having more related to current events than I’d originally planned. But when pieces fall into place I’m not gonna take them out.
Anyway, the main character is trans.
I know it’s a bit sudden, but I’ve grown weary of the humor. I think it’s time for a change. I know it’s the middle of a story, but I’ve written a new one for this, as I am going to start writing horror stories now. Also, maybe political ones, I’m not sure yet. Let me know what you think.
The new chapter of Wandering Fortunes is up! A new forest! New friends! New eats! Fashion? And something only seen before in previous novels. Chapter 23: Friends Don’t Let Friends Rot in a Basement features Top and his friends meeting some new friends in the Salenth Kingdom, and in the process help a new friend make something of their life. It also features a song by Top!
You can read the next chapter early if you give or pledge to my Patreon or Ko-fi; a $3 pledge or a single coffee, will let you read it early. You can also get other things like weekly updates on my Patreon, or special books through Ko-fi. Check them out!
Oh, um, er, eh, April Fool’s! Yes, it was totally intentional that I didn’t post the new chapter yesterday. ha ha ha ha hahahahahaHAHAHAHAHA HA HA HA HA HA. HA. HA. HA. HA.
So here’s chapter 13 of Darmenzi, Aquasphere. It features water and a brief discussion of anime and was rather significantly edited a few years ago after I played the demo of a little game called Undertale, maybe you’ve heard of it.
I’ve had about 5 hours of sleep now so I need a nap. Mention of Patreon, which I think I just discovered every post I’ve made announcing new chapters up have only been available to patrons?? I like don’t even know. I’m confused now. Gee, what else is new?
Darmenzi Chapter 9
I’ve never quite figured out how I want to write the titles for these posts. I don’t just want to put the chapter name, but… Anyway, chapter 9. It’s a big one, it’s an important one, but only in the second half. The first half is a hotel, woo.
Also, I just noticed it looks like WordPress post adding writing thingy has changed since I last didn’t avoid using the older one. Because I still use the old one when I can. As long as I can avoid everything being shifted several inches and a lack of easily-accessed most used tags, and an overdone amount of only parts of the page scrolling, and… a preview feature that’s just an inset window on the same page? I feel like it may have been designed for mobile. I feel like everything now is designed for mobile. I feel like I want to plant myself in place like a tree just to make a point. I feel like I shouldn’t have written this paragraph because now I’m going to be late for dayjob. I feel like I stopped caring.
Maybe someday I can care even less if my Patreon starts jumping. Maybe you should take a look at what a future might hold. (For the record, I have complaints on Patreon’s post creator, too, but I feel like they’re at least working towards a good direction.)
Anyway, superbusydayjobwork season ends in a week, maybe then I can be uplifting! Or at least updrafting.
Chapter 7: Scrape in the City
Here is chapter seven of Darmenzi, which features crashes and chaos. There is a semi-truck. The police get involved. Someone jumps off a bridge. Aaaand Wiggleboggle.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaand as always Patreon. I am good at creating excitement. Especially in the morning.
