Unbound Boxes Limping Gods: Disconnected Stories. Issue # 57: Molli (with an i)

Molli’s obsession with music and literature brings her to every bar and underground club, looking for emotional  and  artistic connections. She was brought up in an orphanage, and didn’t know anything about her family. She learnt that no one cared about her. Now 18, she craves for parts of herself disconnected by a lack of history, but doesn’t let anyone get close. She used to believe in steampunk, turned to electro punk and then goth, and vampirism, consuming and exploring every new possibility. She felt alone, that is, until one dark night, her perception changed forever. CLICK HERE for next chronological story.

Molli’s back story, set in Canada, (2010)

  1. Very cool! I like the illustrations and the storyline. I look forward to following your characters in upcoming tales.

  2. Loved your story. You had me on the first sentence and kept me there without a single hesitation. I like the way you avoid phrases/words that may allow the reader drift away to another string of thought. A great skill that us other writers do not have. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  3. First off, I’m honored that you visited my site. Secondly, and most important, you have amazing talent. Your pictures are incredible, and, like your other readers, you had me hooked on the first line. I’m glad Molli made it, but I wondered who the savior was. I haven’t read any other episodes, so I don’t have ANY clues. I think she must have father issues because I was sure that was going to be her father disguised as someone she wouldn’t recognize, but then he just disappeared, unhuman-like. So I am left wondering.

    1. Hi Marsha, I’m really glad you stopped by as you have some wonderful and vibrant art, I love the colours you use. Thanks for reading this, and I’m happy you liked it. Yes The Guild Master’s General’s a tricky character, he turns up in a few stories, here and there, and no one really knows who he is or where he goes to afterwards…

  4. I admire your images and words. I’m thankful you found my blog, enabling me to find yours. Thanks. You have a very intriguing blog. I look forward to perusing it in my spare time. Thank you for sharing your world with us.

  5. Together, the combination of your stories and illustrations are unique (meant in a **good* way), and really showcase your creative talents. 🙂

    Saw your Flickr page – are those photos or scans?

  6. HI Cheryl,

    I like the picture, very well drawn. Molli isn’t quite what I imagine a Goth to be like though. It’s interesting all the same, you keep the reader in suspense. Tease them, always tease them and have them wanting more. 🙂

  7. Thanks for the visit and the follow on my blog. Your drawings, and stories are fantastic! Keep up the great work. Are you publishing a graphic novel based on these stories? If not you definately should look into it.

  8. Wonderful wonderful drawings and keen writing. One question: Is the comment, “He obviously has a psychosis” intended to be ironic or serious? If serious, I would ask why. Nothing in the preceding information or character sketch seemed to indicate psychosis, not to me. But if Molli is making some sort of ironic comment to herself, perhaps it works. Otherwise, I wonder..Nevertheless, as a new reader, I really love your blog, both your art and your writing. Your faces have enormous depth of personality and real grittiness and your stories keep the reader on the edge of her seat always. Great stuff.

    1. Hi Pamela, good to meet you. Molli wasn’t being serious, it was just a thought really, specific to her 🙂 I’m really glad you took the time to read, and have enjoyed what you’ve read. Thank you it means a lot to me. Cheryl

  9. Cheryl, you are a tease. I want more from this story. Molli is moi..once upon a time…LOL! Those boots look so familiar. 😉

    1. Hi, just seen your message! Hope you’re well. How are you getting on with the Dutch lessons? Missing you on WordPress! Cheryl (And yes, I love Molli’s boots too!)

      1. Hello, my dear…Thank you. I’ve missed you too. My Dutch is okay. Speaking the language is the hardest part. My brain is really not working. :(((

Keep it alive...
