The Edge of Chaos CHAPTER 2: “The Death of the Prophet”

This is the second chapter of the unfinished story I was writing back in 2004 called The Edge of Chaos; the Prelude and First Chapter I posted earlier was the precursor to this. It’s just as rambling as before, and the language feels as forced as a sitcom in some places. I hope to update this or completely rewriting it sometime soon. There’s also the stereotypical “jerk-ass cop/Federal agent” in this chapter; I’ll probably get rid of his character when/if I rewrite this. I post it here only to receive feedback, and to show how far my writing has come. I will post two more chapters after this. Does the story interest you thus far? If so, let me know!

For some reason, the footnotes completely disappear in this chapter. This chapter was written with an old friend of mine, Taya, whom I haven’t heard from in years. (The dialogue for her self-named character feels more natural, I think.) Taya, if you’re reading this, contact me so I can link back to you and give you proper credit.

On with the show…

The Edge of Chaos CHAPTER 1: “Recalled To Life”

This is the first chapter of the unfinished story I was writing back in 2004 called The Edge of Chaos; the Prelude I posted earlier was the precursor to this. It’s a tad rambling, a little religious (this was back when I was still in my fundamentalist phase) and the language feels forced in some places. There is also far too much detail in this chapter. I will either be updating this or completely rewriting it soon. I post it here only to receive feedback, and to show how far my writing has come. I will post two more chapters after this. Does the story interest you thus far? If so, let me know!

Warning: thereare plenty of footnotes. I had been reading The Illuminatus! Trilogy when I wrote this, and Robert Anton Wilson’s comedic misuse of them influenced me a little too much. Moreover, I was far too immature a writer when I penned this, and much of it is absolute schlock. Terribly sorry!
