So the comic called Ironborn is pretty much my new favorite thing ever. It’s got magic and it’s got robots. I am quite pleased. In somewhat related news I also learned about Brian Despain who is a painter of robots.

I’m just all linky today aren’t I?

P.S. I’ve also decided that the author of Ironborn is my Swedish clone.


This is some rambling on my newest idea currently titled “The Tree”

“Once, I suspect it was some time ago, in a place, undoubtably rather far for here, there was a tree. Some people say that this tree was the inspiration for all other trees. Most would go so far as to call it the Tree.  The Tree has been around so long no one knows how it came to be, some claim it was a creation of their deity, other claimed it was their deity. The stories are almost as many as are leaves on the Tree. The history of the Tree is, however, well-known: There was a wandering druid who was passing through a small, unnamed village. While he was there he noticed they cooked with a leaf that was unfamiliar to him.  They told him that all they knew was that the leaf would come from the north on the wind every autumn. Intent on discovering the origins of this strange leaf, the druid left to explore the woods the next morning. There he discovered the Tree. It is believed that this was the first time any human had ever witnessed the Tree.  When the druid returned to the  village to with this news they packed up their town and moved it into the woods to be near the Tree and the village become known as Ki for the druidic word for tree. Every autumn they would wait patiently under the tree for its leaves to fall and in return they kept it clean and safe. Over time the Tree’s strength grew and the village Ki grew with it. ..”

That’s it for now. I have the basic idea all set up but the pacing is troubling me.
