  • Take Flight

    Take Flight

    Another story from Dreams of a Fantasist. The title was inspired by Lyndsey’s track, but the story is a Fantasist original. I run through the battlefield, dodging swinging swords as I go. My weapon long lost, the balance tips further in their favour. Blooded ground stretches out before me until it meets dark mountains beyond. […]

  • Freeing Clair

    Freeing Clair

    I once met a pianist who could play Clair de Lune. He played with such passion, such beauty that it brought me to tears. His love poured through his fingers and danced across ivory keys. My body moved to his melody in the only way I knew, and I danced for him. The Pianist and […]

Dad’s heart attack still haunts me, but he is recovering well at home, and I am making it through as best I can. I never […]

  • The Mechanical Beast

    The Mechanical Beast

    Check out more from my Dreams of a Fantasist collection. This is silly and fun and based on something real that I’ve made fantastical because I see the fantastical in the most mundane things. Can you guess what it was based on? In the wild, I am the huntress. I prowl the black and grey […]
