The Dragon & The Demon

The Dragon & The Demon
ONGOING
18 pages

Orenda Nochdifache-Firefist has sucessfully overthrown the Empress Xandra and broken the empire to allow the individual colonies to return to self-rule, as well as abolished the chattle slavery that had plagued the land- earning her the title of "Orenda the Reign Ender".  The Knights of Order have officially won the war in a bloody revolution, putting an end to the three centuries of warfare under Xandra's leadership.  No longer must people live in fear of Xandra's puppet, The Emerald Knight.  But now Orenda must face the realities of her dream- the imaginary princess has become queen.  And, she has a deadly secret she must keep in the form of a teenage Urillian boy who is not what he seems.

Anilla is still on a never ending quest to find her dragon; her people beleive that every memeber of their tribe is born with a soul bonded dragon that exists somewhere in the world- and Orenda's little secret claims to have seen Anilla's soul before.  Could he be the key to ending her quest?

This work is a direct sequel to The Crimson Mage, and will obviously contain major spoilers for that work, so it might be a better place to start (though I will warn you that the first chapter of that story may be the worst thing I've ever written.  Just power through it or encorage me to put up a second draft).  It can be found here: https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/21654/the-crimson-mage/chapter/307763/chapter-1

ONGOING
127 pages

In the Urillian Empire, the Empress Xandra rules three-quarters of the planet Xren from her home in the capital of the Earth Continent.  Both the fire and water peoples have fallen under her might after a series of wars stretching back three centuries.  Earth elves, under Xandra's rule, have spread throughout the planet and established colonies, and are, by all accounts, enjoying what seems to be a prosperous and happy existence.

But not everyone in Uril is happy.  The holy books speak of elves as the Chosen People of Thesis, tasked with guiding and protecting the lower races.  For some people, this scripture has been interpreted to designate their life as one on the lowest rungs of society.  Humans have been reduced to a slave class, and serve their elven masters under Xandra's rule, kept at bay by the constant fear of the dreaded Emerald Knight, and their own perceived weakness.  Humans do not lead long lives, nor do they possess the wisdom, power, or magical acumen of their elven masters.

But there is hope.  A group of people have banded together to fight against Xandra, her Knight, and her empire.  They call themselves the "Knights of Order" united under the principle idea that Xandra's reign has brought chaos unto Xren, and they wish to restore order.  These Knights are led by a man named Xaxac Brigaddon, spoken of as a legend.  They say that when the moons are full, some humans transform into powerful beasts.  They say that Xaxac is the most powerful warrior on Xren, that in his youth he was enslaved and forced to fight other humans to the death in a bloodsport called "cage fighting", that he could not be touched and held the world championship title for three years running until he faked his own death and escaped his master to join the resistance.  They say that he has friends in high places- noblemen, pirates, and the devil himself.  They say that if you can find him, he can ferry you to freedom in places where the Earth Elves fear to tread.  They say that he is immune to magical attack, and his eyes shine like the silver moon.  They say that he is descended from Quizlivian Brigaddon, one of the humans who helped the demon Magnus escape a god.

They say that if you want to walk the Path of Order, you should follow the White Rabbit.Come and watch the transformation from human boy to Knight of Order: The life and times of Xaxac OfAgalon OfLangil Brigaddon.

Content Warning: This work is based on the real experiences of human trafficing survivors.  Xaxac's origins are based on true events, and they are presented realisitcally; this includes but is not limited to: isolation, gaslighting, emotional and sexual abuse, and grooming tactics.  This work is meant to hold a mirror up to society; it is based on the real of experiences of people who have experienced slavery and/or abuse.  It is an adult work and probably should not be read by anyone under the age of 18.  If you are a survivor of human trafficing and/or abuse, your feedback is welcome, but please do not read this if you think it may trigger your trauma.  I did not write this with the intention of harming anyone, but rather to provide accurate representation for a group that does not normally get it in the hopes of changing the zeitgeist.  I would like to see a world where more people understand what these experiences are like, so that real survivors do not have to deal with microagressions from an ignorant public.  Reader discretion is advised.  This book does not display these elements as heavily as book 1.

A collection of Appalachian Folk Tales.

I grew up in Appalachia, and my writing has been highly influenced by the stories I heard as a child.  These aren't exactly fairy-tales, not all of them, but they are the sort of stories that children in Appalachia are told, or that show up in children's books.  Because of the nature of these stories they'll be much more accessible to a younger audience than my other works.  I would say that most are PG, with a few knocking on PG-13's door.

Come and experience a cavalcade of witches, haints, boogers, and whatever else lurks out in them woods out back of the trailer.
