After injecting herself with the blood of Ichitumbu Jalhavi, (see Amanojuko Part 4) Helga Ritter stands on her balcony onboard The Floating Asylum, contemplating her own meaning. She is now an immortal and it feels so good. Next to her is fellow scientist, and Amanojuko Lord, Professor Filius Anderson. (Whom Alexand later calls, Dr. Grim) CLICK HERE for next chronological story.

I liked it so much that I had to read it three times. Excellent writing. Thanks for sharing.
Hi Wally, I’m glad you liked it so much 😀 thank you! These Amanojuko lords and ladies make me shiver! (It’s hard to know how they’re received by people reading this story) I don’t let my antagonists out too often lol.
My “others” are all too calm and questioning. I could use a few with a little life (so to speak) and edge. Maybe I should be careful what I wish for. I think I have seen a few of them wandering around here from time-to-time.
That’s the beauty of writing multiple characters, you can write anything. It’s liberating!
Cheryl, thanks for taking an interest in my announcement to publish “Through the Glass Darkly,” and for following me, as well. Just a cursory look tells me I need to revisit your site and read your work. Are you the artist?
Hi, you’re very welcome and congratulations! Yes it’s my art. Thanks for taking time to stop by.
Are you for hire?
Powerful and visionary.
Hi Lee, thank you 😀 I love your artwork BTW particularly Watchtower conversion unit.
brilliant, loved it ! :–)
Thanks, Gabriel, I’m glad! 😀
That was beautiful, and very thought-provoking. Especially the end, where he corrects her, hmmm…
Hi Anna, thanks for reading, I appreciate it. Yes he definitely wants to establish new rules for her now she’s one of the amanojuko. Their thought processes are different to mortals, although they share common memories of being human.
You’re really good. It’s a present to read you, every time and the drawings.. great!
Thanks Felice, I appreciate it, and am glad you enjoy the stories. BTW I enabled the translate facility on WP for Rafaella and really enjoyed reading it.

Hi T, thank you.
I dropped by to thank you for following my blog, and then decided to stop by and read yours. I’m impressed with both your writing and with you’re blog concept. I’ve been trying to figure out how to post my writing without posting my actual story and you’ve given me some ideas. Thanks!

Thank you! 😀
You’re welcome, you earned it!
Your writing is absolutely amazing and the sheer output is incredible. Big fan of your illustrations, as well.
Hi James, thank you. (Looking forward to new posts in No Pants Publications)
I feel inspired. I read your stories and see your art, and I feel incredibly inspired. You see, I’ve always wanted to do something like this. I want to illustrate stories, but my drawings aren’t up to par. They don’t look like how I want them to look. But this, this is great. 😀
You should try it, (when I started it took a long time to develop the illustrations) lol. It’s rewarding though. Thanks for reading 😀
Your blog is what I envision mine to be one day. It is incredible. Beauitful writing, artwork, the way you link the stories and connections to characters and places together so it doesn’t matter where you come in.. I think I love your mind.
