I’ve been thinking a lot about writing this post. Maybe I haven’t had time, but when I really think about it, maybe I just wasn’t ready to write it. It’s been months since we opened the Book of Briars - us, the unlikely heroes! I guess I’m struggling with a life without mysteries, a life without puzzles, struggling with a mundane life. I don’t think I’ve been ready to ask for help, but maybe as the days are getting longer and the weather warmer, maybe I’m ready to come out of my rut a little. So, who better than to ask than those who stood side-by-side with me (digitally, at least) at the end of things?
What have all of you been up to?
Since we opened the Book of Briars, I’ve been… waiting? Preparing? I don’t know what the right word would be, but I’ve been getting ready for The Next Thing. Maybe the Silver would head back for revenge. Maybe the Council would call on us for some new quest. I’ve been preparing my body and mind. I’ve started exercising 5 days a week. I’ve been reading like crazy. I’ve been looking for clues in the Ackerly Green Instagram posts. I’ve been reflecting on our times in Neithernor, and why only some of us have made it there, while some of us have not or cannot.
So what have you all been doing? I guess I just need to know that I’m not feeling paranoid alone, feeling lonely alone, searching for something out there alone.
