...of what I've been working on the last little while, the Holy ScriptureTM Roger wanted me to compose after my Holy QuestTM. The idea for this came to me during my caffeine and other substances withdrawl. I've been shaping the idea ever since and today I wrote down the first lines (which will most assuredly be edited all to fuck in time).
So here it is, the first bit of part one (the Proem in the genres parlance).
I ask, oh muse, you sing of Lexakles
the Blueshifter and belov'd of Eris.
Brought to Illiam by Discordia
who laid 'pon him proud elucidation
as in his heart he knew not who he loved.
Speak then of him coming near from afar,
of great conflict and destinied balance.
Tell of the trials he tested, triumph
in Trojan, Greek and in Eris' name
so doing in wearing glory and fame,
to stand before bittered foes, Lexakles!
Jester to a king who hath not a throne -
Become grave man of great spirit a'fire,
Builder and razer, poet'cal liar,
A warrior skilled, strifing discord blows,
Final to trickster whom contention sows.
All this, and more did The Blushifter wring,
to sing of his song is life to my lyre.
When all glory is dead and heroes, gone,
lord Lexakles will be gold gainst our brass.
In balance, in truth, in beauty withal
conquering madness, deceiving the fall
of humans who know not the truth most foul.
I intend to continue working on this as and when I can, and further parts will probably be thrown down in literate chaotic.
