    High Tower; Drawing Blood Prologue


    Welcome dear reader, to my first attempt at both crafting and executing a fan fiction piece. Though I have previously involved myself in many roleplays and writing projects both within and outside of the forums I have yet to craft my own story, excluding extensive backstories. For that reason I ask that you have patience with me, both in my slow rate of posting as well as the inexperience which may show through. Having said this if you do enjoy my writing style or have the time to read through even a portion of this piece I invite you in with open arms and a bowed head.

    This has very much been a therapeutic piece for me which has largely gathered dust up until this point. It allowed me to use what little time I have managed to find in an otherwise hectic and busy life to do something I truly enjoy. At times this meant a line which was quickly jotted in a note on my phone, or even a simple word or two to indicate a rogue idea. I’ve attempted to deliver those disjointed thoughts in a more cohesive way, and tentatively I say with some success. However…

    I would very much like to encourage commentary, and also constructive criticisms however I would ask that any such comments are not posted here. Without any solid decision on the length of each post nor the number I can not reserve all the necessary slots and would like to avoid any interruption of the flow from chapter to chapter. If there is any interest in reviewing or sharing commentary please let me know via personal message and I will set up a supplementary thread if permitted. As I’m not sure this will be read at all, much less receiving any kind of reaction, I would prefer to do so if or when the need arises. Otherwise simply messaging me any of the above is also very much welcome. Thank you endlessly for your understanding, and hopefully for your cooperation.

    Throughout this tale many character will appear, though their length of involvement may unfortunately be minimal. To improve the understanding of the story line I will include an incomplete list of characters, editing and adding existing or new characters as I have the time or the inclination. Along with their names I will add a small, overly simplified, indicator of who they are. Some are excluded purposefully, as a little confusion is healthy. When needed I will provide character cards by linking the names directly to the appropriate blog entry or post.
