    Summary

    It all begins with a letter, penned by the sovereign of Plegia, inviting the Exalt of Ylisse to visit the halidom's western neighbor after fifteen years of peaceful silence.

    Unwilling to see his sister walk into what he's certain is a trap, Chrom agrees to go in her stead, and prepares himself to enter enemy lands. But nothing is as he expected: not the ruse, not the enemy...and not the Plegian sovereign, Robin Fell.  

    A love letter to Plegia, written for the 2020 Chrobin Celebration on Tumblr

    Summary

    A collection of short Disco Elysium writings. I'm trying to practice finishing fiction without obsessing over the quality, so these might not be great. Check the summary of each chapter for a synopsis and content warnings.

    Summary

    Vortigaunts do not experience time the way humans do. Time is not a flat line where the past is behind them. It is with them always. More then memory. Regrettably less then time travel. Because if Uriah could change these moments of the past, then he would have known what to say when the human he did not yet know as Dr. Arne Magnusson finds him.

    But he revisits it often all the same, with the appreciation of the many years between them.

    It is the day of Black Mesa; when the end of the hopeless future will come. It hasn't happened yet; and the Vortigaunt who is not yet named Uriah remembers how it felt to first look at the sky.

    (Or: In which the author gets kind of Really Into trying to write an alien perspective with a wholly different outlook on time, and also what that would mean when you are in love with someone, and also no force on earth can tell me these two aren't A Thing.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Amazing characterisation and a really unexpected twist at the end with the change of perspective going from second to first, revealing the narrator.
