Predericon in Darkness, Part 6

Day 94. 99 pages, 42,283 words.


The Schade were a species of aquatic
Extremely hostile territorial
Crustaceoform galastroids that lived in
The high-pressure depths of Black Vuoliér
Of [missing]-Zolt-[missing], where the so-called
Manta worlds were once mistaken for a
Floor to the bottomless ocean. The large
Suspended plates of mega-dense stone were
Schade homeworlds until the Calamity
Of Air. See The Calamity of Air.

The Gormless Dead are a breed of undead
Found only in Dmbus, Calignia,
And are incapable of surviving
Outside of the planetary system.
One of the only known breeds of ‘daylight’
Undead, the Gormless Dead enter into
A dormant state at night and during the
Day stand outside and stare vacantly up
At the sun. Why do they not go into
The dark? Why do you not, Predericon?

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.
