Love and death and war and Gods and blood and magic and dancing and rest and revenge and kings and fate.
Don't worry, within these three stories you'll know yourself,
And I will put you back together again.


1. In Stitches

Your life is somewhere here, strewn about our feet.

All lives pass through here, glimpsing our touch.  My sisters and I, the Parcae.  Destiny.  Fates.  You might call us what destroy you, if you weren’t clever enough to blame your own choices.  We lead you, and little more.

The lives graze about Nona, who weaves the thread of life.

Decima, who measures it, and its worth.

Morta, who cuts it when she finds that it is time enough.

This is a story about those who have become tangled, knots we cannot comb out, so close that our fingers can’t intervene in the web that they build to keep out the Gods, and to keep in what the foolish find to be important, or true, or worth dying for.  

This is a story about love, how it is connected, and interconnected, and spiraling, and climbing, and falling.  A story about war, and who it leaves behind.  Beauty, and how it is measured like it can be bought and sold, as if it is valuable, as if it more important than kindness.  We will tell you about the realms, and where the Gods sit on thrones and judge down for as little as they are worth to us.  

But this is a tale of loneliness.  This is a story about carrying on when there was no one pathing the road for you, when there is nothing to live for.  If you have ever had no one, if you have looked inside and met your own eyes and felt it bore holes, empty, emptier still - then you may know this story already, or at least to hear.  But your life is caught in our touch, and there are only a few who are not connected, who have lived in a way no Hell could create, the bitter insanity of walking through your world with no one by your side.  

But you?  You’ll be alright.  

Here is our story, one that starts with those you know already.  Here is for those who give themselves up so that you can live like a royal even when you have no one on hand.  How sad is your life, lying in our laps?  

This is a story of birth, life, death - and from it - becoming nothing.

For me.
