Night Parade Part 9

Subaru stared up at the slowly brightening sky, the ground cold against his back. His throat clogged with the heavy mix of blood and rot in each breath, and his chest was burning but it was too hard to move. He couldn’t feel his face. “You did very well, boy.” The lyrical voice of the… Continue reading Night Parade Part 9

Night Parade Part 8

The allies, so named in the tale remained seated in their spots in the circle just as their surrounding youkai burst in a sudden geyser of blood and limbs. The Fox chuckled while the Tanuki sighed of waste. The remaining youkai retaliated in outrage and several immediately raced to the Onmyouji, but were brought down… Continue reading Night Parade Part 8

The Night Parade Chapter 1-2

The rusty old pipe outside my bedroom window creaked dangerously as I inched my way down. Grandfather’s words were still ringing in my ears. I was born the Kanda Onmyouji, and I would die as one. My fate was sealed hours after my birth when my hair turned the red of blood from thousands of… Continue reading The Night Parade Chapter 1-2

Prequel to Onmyouji Chronicles 1-1

Back to my original piece of work. This is my first attempt at writing a short story, and confirmed my suspicions that I'm too long-winded to carry out short stories. It was meant to be a prequel to the Onmyouji Chronicles that I've tentatively named the Night Parade. Those who wonder what that refers to should check… Continue reading Prequel to Onmyouji Chronicles 1-1

Yurei

Here's a topic we've all probably heard in one form or another: Yurei (幽靈) or simply, a spirit or ghost. In Japanese folklore, this spirit can apparently be divided into two categories: Goryo (御靈) is a vengeful spirit of an aristocrat. In general, vengeful spirits are referred to as Onryo (怒靈), the stronger the sense… Continue reading Yurei

The Prologue that Wasn’t

In a brief break from my many notes/stories of various myths, I've dug up an old prologue of my novel. This introduction brought up so many memories - some things have stayed canon-compliant, as it were. Others may change, or I might decide to put them in for later. Anyway, realistically, I couldn't figure out… Continue reading The Prologue that Wasn’t

I’m back with Zashiki

Hello old…blog-friend, it's been too long! *ducks flying fruit* Basically, RL took over and though I never stopped writing (yay me!), my blog did take a bit of a back-burner. I am going to try to be much more diligent with writing and the like, just as a personal sort of resolution. I kind of… Continue reading I’m back with Zashiki

Izuna

Izuna (飯綱) also goes by the name of kuda-kitsune (管狐). It can be said the two are the same, yet have some small more distinctive qualities and legends about them that make them a little different. The Izuna is a small youkai, with soft fur and a tail like the end of a broom. It's born with all… Continue reading Izuna
