The Mad Poet here, perhaps better known for my art by now but you all know my secret--this is much more interesting. I hope you derive even a fraction of as much pleasure reading this as I did writing it.

UPDATE 07-20-12

WOW, have I been away a while! I want to apologize to everyone who was following TSN for my absurd hiatus. Life has been, if you'll forgive the term, kicking me repeatedly in the balls. I am attempting to get back in the game, however, and Thou Shalt Not has been updated with the next chapter well underway. I'm juggling a few jobs right now, which curtails my free time, but I hope to see it update again before the end of the summer.

I am also looking for a new beta reader for Thou Shalt Not! My good friend Osidiano no longer has the time to give to my absurd rambly drafts. If you do, I can be most readily contacted via Skype, where my user name is 'alchemic_nerdbunny' and I check for messages daily. You will seriously become my new best friend.

On that note, the newest chapter of TSN is NOT properly beta'd, so I apologize for its sorry state.

Desperation reviews
How does one go from delivering young to playing god with their broken bodies on an operating table, grinding them down in the mill of cold science? Flatline could tell you: desperate times will do that. A quick drabble for a character no one remembers from the movieverse comics no one liked.

BoFIII. An old story written for the prompt, 'choose good actions without good knowledge'. Garr tells us that he was once just like the other people of the Tapa. But the truth is, there is something unique even in that. On becoming a Guardian. Pre-game.

Short BoFII drabble written for January 4th prompt, "Just a little bit of history repeating". Nina reflects on the consequences of a choice that she's made, and has been made before. Post-game, Nina/Ryu, but not in a particularly happy way.

Time is not a circle--history does not repeat. But time -is- a spiral, and sometimes the past wanders back to haunt us. . . The apparently long-awaited first story of my trilogy. Angsty. Ye Gods, it lives! Chapters 12 and 13 up! YAY!

There are no greater motivators than these: guilt, love, and memory. Let the romantics debate their reality--the pragmatist accepts them, and uses them as the potent drugs they are. My first major GW fanproject, this ought to be interesting. PLEASE R+R!
