Boulet-Guardians

Angst and hokey bits! GRIGNR!

Bwah. I should not bwah over this cheesy story, but I do so bwah. This is too much fun.

I have written most of it now in shorthand or in full, and it's wound up so full of every damn fantasy adventure cliché that I feel like I should go back and rewrite it with "emerald orbs" and "flashing foot of blinding steel" thrown in there somewhere. And possibly a tediously-honed rat's pelvis.***

The scary thing is how much it resembles a typical Final Fantasy plot. ALL the bad, and ALL the good, hopefully! Why do we love these games... or classic Trek... or half the science fiction/fantasy out there when it's often so very predictable?



*** If you don't understand the references, read and weep. Eye of Argon, the worst fantasy fiction ever written. There can be only one.
