TURN OF THE MARK
μῆνιν ἄειδε θεὰ ...
A worldbuilding project in an original, operapunk crime-fiction setting spanning the distant mythologized past and the avant-garde future of an operatic world where sound reigns supreme. Since time immemorial, certain bards have learned to harness a strange infrasonic talent. In modernity, select artists begin professional training at a young age, attempting to develop the bardic gift -- and often owned as living art for a hefty price of patronage. Valley of Doors is an in-universe epic of dubious historicity that covers a vast period of antiquity, while Turn of the Mark is the overarching narrative that represents the world's verismo modern era. This project explores historicity, anthropology, art, and autonomy. Page under construction.

YOU DIDN'T ASK TO
BE BORN A PARASITE
The sole survivor of a shipwreck, freed from imprisonment in the ruined brig, flees into an all-seeing land in search of their freedom. Captured, muzzled, and stranded on foreign shores, they are utterly lost -- and the enchanted gag with which they were muzzled is forcing them to starve, a problematic condition for a creature that must eat constantly or perish. Unable to speak or feed themself, they follow constellations of eyes across the landscape in hopes of finding a way to break the deadly spell. This is an emerging concept that will enter development at a later date.
