Until I get my editing done and Greyblade released, I’m going to take a break from blogging. I’m fine, just got a busy couple of weeks coming up and I have to let something go.
I’m not finished with the story of Skell and Lotus. Or at least, I’m finished with that story … but like Predericon’s little epic, this looks like one that will extend into a collection of serial tales. So I’ll come back to that soon.
Until then, I’ll post whenever anything Hatstand-shaking occurs.
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.

oh fuck you. this is why I waited to read the last set of stories.
You might as well read it, it’s finished and no guarantee of continuing. Except, you know, I said I would. But I could die tomorrow.
lolol, I ve been following along with this one
why is it almost always 19 segments?
Just the way it went. The last one was 19, 19, 20 and 19, to make a meta-joke about the inconsistencies in the archive’s data blocks. It was … obscure even by my standards.
But 19 segments just happen to tell the story. There’s hardly an arc or a structure to any of this shit but let’s say it’s completely intentional.
*shakes the Hatstand*
