sunday six

Each Sunday, post six sentences from a writing project — published, submitted, in progress, for your cat — whatever.

Hermann pulls his satchel from its hiding place.  He packs a pouch of roasted nuts and a whistle carved from ash.  He slings his waterskin across his chest.  When he looks up, Newt is standing in the doorway, a gentle smile on his face, a stone-bladed knife in his belt.  The forest is unfamiliar at night—unsafe.

“Are you ready?”

Hermann nods.  He takes the hand that Newt offers, and stands.

oh ho ho I am 10000% taking the cheater’s way out this week.  if this excerpt sounds familiar, that’s because I’ve already posted it.  I posted an earlier draft on august 10th.  but see, I’m doing an ~~~artistic thing~~~  I’m showing it to you again at a much later stage of the editing process to demonstrate how my writing evolves over multiple drafts~~~~~  yes this was totally an intentional sharing-of-the-writing-process thing and had nothing to do with the fact that I am struggling with this fic and have little else to be proud of right now  [COUGHS LOUDLY]

um

anyway, this is woodland!herm, which is basically fantasy au in a forest involving filtered moonlight, rotting logs, and kaiju lurking in shadows.  I’m very fond of it, but man, it’s fighting me.

I like to think that Mako and Herc became really close after the cancellation of the Apocolypse. Just as hard as it is to lose a parent, it can be even more devastating to lose a child.  And while Herc never replaced Stacker, and Mako never replaced Chuck, they both made time for lunch outings and workouts and games of pool and visiting graves and catching up and drinking contest and bowls of frozen yogurt . Herc would catch himself saying “That’s my girl” every time Mako bested Raleigh in the Kwoon and Mako found herself looking for Herc’s grin of approval as Raleigh wheezed in a heap on the floor.

Reverse boards! (In which we just took a scene from a movie and boarded individual shots) I chose Pacific Rim’s Otachi battle and now I regret it because I got re-hyped about giant robots punching giant monsters.

for ten years now, leonid tishkov has traveled the world with his moon. here we see him in arctic svalbard magdalene fjord (1,5,7), new zealand, near rangitito (second photo, taken by marcus williams), the tian shang observatory near the border between china and kyrgyzstan (third photo, by po-i chen) and moscow (4,6,8, taken by boris bendikov)

"the moon is a shining point that brings people together from different countries, of different nationalities and cultures - and everyone who gets in its orbit does not forget it ever. it gives fairytale and poetry in our prosy and mercantile world," leonid writes. "the moon helps us to overcome our loneliness in the universe by uniting us around it."

leonid adds, “the ancient ural peoples who lived in my home told a fairy tale about how a shaman goes into the next world, illuminating the path of the moon. so in all of my photos, i can be seen in my late father’s cloak, because he travels with me in this way.”

the loneliest moment in someone’s life is when they are watching their whole world fall apart, and all they can do is stare blankly.
