The Winter Solstice Recital was imminent. Cacophony knew his reign was destined to be ephemeral, but he'd make the most of it. No living vicariously through external melodics this time.
His chaotic madness seduced woodwind, almost corrupted brass entirely, made a mockery of percussion and led strings totally astray. His huffs and puffs turned the neat piles of sheet music into a maelstrom of breves, crotchets and quavers.
Then, the door to the auditorium opened and a tranquil, incandescent presence crossed the threshold.
Cacophony frowned petulantly and stamped discordant feet.
Damn his big sister, Harmony. She always ruined his fun.

The blissfulness of madness isn’t the fear of not being like everyone else. I’m glad I’m different, at least I’m not crazy, like some. I fully understand what’s going on. You see, they told me their plan. I hear your laughter!
“Gort klaatu barada nikto,” was a documentary, they edited the robot in. The future history shows of the Yellowstone Caldera, that they beamed to us. I’d move West of Wyoming if I were you. Those crazy people who think the COVID vaccine injected capsules into them, flawed logic. My fear is being cured, because then i wouldn't know the truth?

pelwrath: Watched a video where it was said that first time authors shouldn’t have a cliffhanger but a complete story as their first book. www.tiktok.com/t/ZT8yrMo6k/

Caulder Melhaire: Rothfuss!! Why, if I ever get my hands on that man, I'll make Annie Wilkes look like a bad chiropractor

RAVENEYE: Well, if lightning don't hit the third time, I'm tossing those first two novels into the bin cuz they're useless without the ending. Caulder Melhaire - I'll hand you the sledgehammer...

RAVENEYE: Desperately brainstorming "snowfall" before my niece comes over for the weekend...

RAVENEYE: Dang it, I didn't get my snowfall entry written in time. Ugh, what an exhausting weekend. Either my niece's costume project seriously wore me out, or I was fighting off a germ. Maybe both?

Caulder Melhaire: Dagnabit, but I forgot to update the dang thing! Two days in a row I set a reminder and both days got distracted by recruiters
Dec 5, 2023 14:51:47 GMT -6
Caulder Melhaire: Welp. Lucky y'all, we're just gonna extend snowfall by one more rest of the week
