Tiny little disclaimer: The title on this chapter is actually a line from a song by the Swedish group The Ark; “Two Thousand Light-years of Darkness”. I don’t own the Ark. I don’t own the song. I’d like to own the singer, Ola Salo, but unfortunately I don’t own him either, and it’d probably not make any difference if I did, since he’s gay anyway. I’m definitely not making any money from this so don’t sue me. Leave a comment instead. (It’s not fanfiction either, I swear! See? Not a Swedish rockband in sight in the entire story! It *is* allowed to use a song line as a title, isn’t it?)
I got bored and decided to write a story about love. I dunno why. Just did. So anywayz I did and this is the sickning sweet result.
Chapter 3 - in which some of Matt's story is told and Simon has his first encounter with the magic-book.
Not much to say about this chapter. The real action will start in chapter five, but my practical training starts next week so there’ll probably be longer between updates. I’ll do my best… Zak: “We won’t leave her alone, I promise!” Zinnith: “Oh yeah, I know that. But there’s this little thing called reality that some people must take care of before they can write ‘geeky fairy tales’.” Zak: “Reality? What’s that? Sounds stupid.” Zinnith: “You have no idea…”
Zak: “You just love to make me miserable, don’t you.” Zinnith: (innocently) “I don’t know what you mean.”
I haven't gotten a real name for this one... But, damn it, don't you love Jesters?
This is one of many bits and pieces of a larger (almost done) story simply titled: Jestia. In December of '97, I joined a RPG by the name of Steisey Granada, Queen of Jestia, the jester homeland. This is part of her legend: the first female heir of Jestia and the events that threw her into the throne at the age of fourteen.
This is what I’m doing when I should revise for my exam the 27:th. I’ve never written an exam in my entire life and I’m positively terrified. So I’m writing TJT instead. And English is still not my first language.
This is the first chapter of The-story-currently-called-'The Jesters' Tale'-but-that-might-change-in-the-future.
So, I’m updating early (or late, depending on how you look at it). Blame my inflamed kneecaps that have kept me at home for two days. Sorry if this is a confused note, I’m on painkillers, and I’m not exactly thinking clearly… Hrm. As if I ever do. Well, this is The Fairly Calm Chapter Before Everything Goes To Hell. Enjoy! Also, I’ve invested in the soundtrack to “Pirates of the Carribean”. (Is that a good movie or what?) Consequently, this chapter was written almost entirely while listening to the album and wondering if I should move Jirac to the sea and rewrite the whole story into “The Pirates’ Tale” instead. On second thought, maybe not… Sure, Caran is a tiny little bit inspired by Captain Jack Sparrow, but I don’t think she would appreciate the life on a ship. Imagine her on a ship at sea, that’s a very confined space… Anything else? Eh…comment! (I bet no one saw that coming!) Oh, yeah, I almost forgot. English is not my native language. So sue me. On second thought, don’t sue me. It’s not worth the trouble.
English not my native language, yadda yadda yadda… I’ll just write the rest of my notes in the end of the chapter, so I don’t spoil anything…
Chapter 2, in which we get to meet a not-so-mighty-magician, a dwarf, a carpenter, a girl and a mysterious man in a cloak.
So… this is chapter 13, in which Aidan is pissed off, Master Iain reveals his past and Matt kicks ass.
English is still not my first language. Wish it were. Is it possible to convert to another language?
This chapter is very late, and I apologize. I’m afraid updates in the future will be extremely irregular. I’ve just started a new course and I’m trying to get myself something of a life again… But don’t despair, TJT *will* be finished! Thank you everyone who’s commenting and sending me nice e-mails! Without you there wouldn’t be a Jester’s Tale!
Phew! This must have been the most stubborn chapter so far. I had to draw every single word from my brain with force. My apologies for the delay. I blame the mutant-hamsters. I might as well warn you now, that the next chapter might be late as well. This story is a work in progress. I have just finished the first part of it and now I find that there are some things I haven’t given any thought before, that I have to figure out to be able to write the next part.
