Demon King

In which my fears are not unfounded

lifegivingsword came home from the WWI re-enactment weekend with not only a bad cold, but also with a case of poison ivy. As you can imagine, sharing a flat with this in my current condition has me somewhat on edge. My immune system, for once, has proved sturdy against the arrival of unpleasant weather; by now I'd have normally come down with terrible respiratory something. I can't afford to catch the cold, so maybe a plague mask is in order.

I spun a little writing out of my scrambled thoughts this past weekend, but I haven't been successful when it comes to rereading, editing, and adding to it. The siren call of Six Feet Under, Season 5, has been far too strong. I'm definitely perplexed as to how I missed this show while it was airing; it would have been as much much cup of tea back then as it is now. It handles ghosts very much like I've been handling them in fiction for quite some time, so this is personal-mythology compatibility at its most intimate.
