Current Two New Contests are now live. Check out The Twelve Labours Series Two as well as The Final Hazard, both in the Writing Contests subforum.


I have been writing as a hobby for around seventeen years now (wow does that make me sound old). I have been a regular member and roleplayer on no less than eight different online forums during that time (including the old RPG), five six of which no longer exist.

I was previously a regular on the Homestuck forums, but I became so sick of thread turnover there that I asked around and eventually found the Guild. Since joining, I have exclusively only participated in Advanced RPs. Before Mahz gave NRPs their own subforum, I used to be an NRP regular in the Advanced Subforum.

If you ask anybody who has written with me in previous RPs, they should tell you that I have a generally open schedule, I post regularly and in a timely fashion, and I never drop an RP once I join unless the thread dies. Some of them may tell you that I have extensive expertise within the realms of Biology, Psychology, and Physics, which I will make no effort to validate since there is no way I can provide hard proof of aforementioned alleged expertise to anybody over the internet (though I am happy to try and answer any questions you send my way).

My favorite fandom is the Myst franchise, which seemingly nobody other than me has ever heard of.

I have been quadruple secret banned from the guild chat. That is not a joke.

Might I inquire as to the fate of the crossbow bolt that was redirected back at the Pavise Knight?

Check the post.

He willed a slug to form very closely around the Pavise Knight...the same as the slug that they had had such a dangerous ride in, which had claimed the lives of three people.

The dark air wavered very briefly as something began to form - just for long enough to send the deflected bolt spiraling away into the void at great force - but then settled as whatever effect had been about to manifest faltered and vanished.

"Why are you even fighting back?" The pavise knight called out to the endless pitch void as he calmly and methodically reloaded his crossbow with another cylinder-tipped arrow, having fully set his left arm into the straps of his pavise. "This world is far too broken for anything worthwhile to be learned now, especially after killing your main source of information. You should just let them die. I do not promise their deaths will be painless - but they will be quick."

Kael seemed to be in control and Andy decided he would go over to him and see if he could help him with the device, but not before he knew what Donny's fate was.

@Doc Doctor
In that single moment of eternity as the bolts materialized from thin air, Donny was very briefly entertained by a curious, foreign thought.

'You seem out of sorts. A little stuck, unsure and therefore unwilling to proceed. I can sympathize - but this world cannot get anymore broken.

I will ask you one question - what do you want? I am not talking to you, Donny-boy. I am talking to you.

Deliver an interesting answer and there may be a way out for you - although, naturally, your own situation is still yours to escape from. I refuse to clean up your mess.'

I'm going to wait and see how you interpret the goings on before posting. Whatever you say happens, happens!

The bolts were successfully moved, but it is not yet any of my business as to whether or not they make contact with Donny. That would seem to be an issue to be decided by you alone. Do let me know if any kind of contact with the business-ends of the bolts should occur though, and I will take it from there.

Roster updated.

With one final leap from a mount granted to him by the Goddesses themselves, Fortune De Vigny's final words as his divine lance made contact with daemonic flesh and both he and the foul creature itself were consumed by an explosion of pure, heavenly light were "FOR BRETONNIA!"

He would never be seen again.

Neither would Leona.

Perhaps her form had simply not been as intimidating as it seemed. Perhaps whatever power it had afforded her had not yet been fully developed. Perhaps she had been specially vulnerable to whatever magic Fortune had sacrificed his life to employ.

Whatever the case had been however, naught remained once Fortune departed in his final blaze of glory - not so much as a scrap of golden hair from her hide.

Kael's next action would be to use his Ethereal would work, because he willed it.

His first action to will the three bolts now surrounding Donny into place took but an instant, a simplicity too mundane to require more than an errant thought to arrange in this suggestion of a world. When he turned to his own ethereal sight however...

He saw nothing.

There was no magic, anywhere. Unlike before, it was not as if magic had once been but had died. Now it was simply that magic had never existed; as if what had been before had been a mere illusion. The only trace of it he could find was spilled like ink in water from his own eyes.

Of course, his sight did reveal something that had been hidden before - it did not seem magical, quite - as still could not even properly see it, per-se. Yet, Kael could somehow tell that now, there were connections of a kind, all surrounding the machine left in the darkness. Perhaps due to his willing his own sight to work, perhaps passively enhancing his own power without realization.

One of the conduits tied directly to the pavise knight, a winding, screw-like cord that twisted silently like a knife in the empty space. Its motion was excruciatingly slow - but certain, like the sun rising and setting.

The other conduit tied - somewhere else. It seemed to spiral inward, inside the machine itself, burrowing into the depths of the construct's own internal space without end until it reached - something, somewhere else. It was hard to discern more. Peering into that link was akin to feeling one had when standing upon the edge of a chasm.

"Shit." The pavise knight uttered from behind Kael. "Well, guess we have more time to reset the machine-"

Kael received no warning whatsoever. As he had been speaking, the pavise knight had slipped loose his crossbow, leveled it calmly to aim it at the small of the archer's back, and fired another one of the small, cylinder-tipped bolts at him mid-sentence without even breaking his tone or sentence.

-now." He said with a complete deadpan, the sound nearly obscured by the metallic twang of his weapon firing.

"Oh?" Andy said to Leona, silently hoping the others would hurry up with that device, "then why are you so worked up about it? You could have just laughed it off and call me adorably ignorant and keep your form." He gestured to whatever he had to call this new appearance of her. "You looked better just a moment ago, although I have to say you have beautiful eyes."

"The only place flattery and childishness will get you..." The woman purred as her form continued to bloat and contort, " the depths of my belly." though now its blossoming, roiling coils of flesh had begun to settle into a more definite form. The only feature that remained as it had been was her head, which retained its shape and features, though had now been enlarged several times. Her body was now hexapodal, with six appendages as thick around as tree-trunks sprouting from her long body, each ending in a claw-tipped feline paw. A long sinuous tail had begun to slither and extend from the small of her back, and two large struts of what looked like bone had begun to sprout from her back, just underneath her first set of shoulders. All across the twisted mass of flesh, a fine layer of golden fur began to grow in.

Therefore, the next task he wills to occur, is for the machine before him to reset.

The Allineator rejected him.

The only warning he had was a faint pulse of light from the cairn before it unleashed a shockwave that passed right through the pavise knight without effect, but upon striking Kael knocked him back and flipped him end-over-end in the vacuum.

"Woah! Come back! I didn't-" The Pavise Knight struggled with his words as he turned his outstretched arm to Kael as the shockwave passed through him. "Godsdamnit I have no idea what is going on anymore..." He grumbled as he began to drift through the darkness. "Are you alright kid? Hang on, I'll sort you out..."
