Ignatius is not having much luck. Another building ruined and a hike through the woods at night. It turns out that finding General Evans is not as easy as one might have hoped.
Somehow, It total slipped my mind to publish Monday’s post for The Air Pirate Affair! 1,000 Apologies. I am very sorry. Well, let’s hope Ignatius is faring better than my memory.
With his inspection of the train complete, Ignatius decides to head toward Thompsontown to get more information. The Army is proving to be of very little help.
I have seen folks post six sentences here and there before, so I thought I would give it a try today. For some reason the name Marrakech was on my mind. I cannot explain it, for some reason it was just lodged in there. Probably because I have been listening to Beats Antique a lot this past month. They have a Steampunk/World music kind of sound. Very exotic, lots of different instruments.
So, here are the first six sentences…
“To pursue the Jinn is to pursue Allah himself. He is the genesis for everything in front of us. The Jinn is like a child to Him, created with purpose and importance. For someone to ensnare such a creation is to spit in the very eye of God.” The wizened old man sat on a threadbare carpet. The tent was filled with a haze of blue smoke and the smell of spices unknown to the other occupants.
Steam erupted out of a long-necked iron tea kettle.
To give a smidgen of context, this opens a short story in which Mark 4.0 (U.S. Marshal, Automata) and his mechanic/assistant Kevin are in Marrakech. They uncover a strange tale of a Jinn (or Genie to use the Western name) making sporadic appearances in the marketplace.
Don’t forget, Monday new scene from The Air Pirate Affair! It seems unreal, but I have one chapter left to write in that story and then I will begin the final story in the series. Eeek! By the way, this may be a good time to go back to the beginning (Under Serial Stories) and check it all out from the start. You could also read the short stories, which fill in pre-serials history on Ignatius St. Eligius.
Have a great weekend everyone! Keep reading!
Things are going a bit wobbly with Ignatius and the Crew of the Maudlin Rose.. Long story short? Check out the scene! What is going on with that train anyway?
Bit of a quick status update: I am nearly finished with chapter 5 and that will leave only chapter 6 to go. I think. The ending of this tale may go a bit haywire, we’ll just have to see where the characters take us.
Thanks for reading everyone!
Happy Friday everyone. Today’s sketch was one that I knew I wanted to share. It is
biff Big* kitty dressed up as the Catbus from “My Neighbor Totoro”
I want to also say Welcome to the new followers, it’s great to have you here!
Monday new scene from The Air Pirate Affair!
*Thanks to my wife, who noticed that Auto-Correct knee-capped my post! \^_^/
Sometimes I think little kitty has a bit of circus freak in her. She tends to bolt around at the merest suggestion. Her enjoyment is at its peak, perhaps, when she is provoking big kitty. Generally in response, HE IS NOT AMUSED. What better way to tempt fate and the wrath of a large cat, than by placing you head in his mouth?
