Unbound Boxes Limping Gods: Disconnected Stories. Issue # 74: Toreth Rek-cho Part 4

After being given the option to take a pill which stops ageing, the group of Abouna Panak’s rebels decide whether or not to take the life altering drug, SIR2HX. (Thank you so much to Pamela Spiro Wagner, a very talented poet and artist, who inspired and encouraged me to finally complete a series of stories rather than tease the reader into gouging out their (and or my) eyes. This is dedicated to you, Pam.) (CLICK HERE for next chronological story)

    1. Thanks Lee, I’m glad it worked, as there’s really no conclusions in this micro series, as you’ve guessed, (like our own lives) but there is another longer series coming up in the future, which is brewing. Glad you like it, and once again I appreciate you taking time to read it. Cheryl

  1. I enjoyed the paradox of emotions between the characters. It’s nice getting to know the characters personal feelings and beliefs, their conflicts and morals. Great story and I really liked the ending as well. BTW, I just posted a new fantasy art piece called The Silver Warrior on my blog, if you are interested.
    Great story as always Cheryl! Keep up the great work!

    1. Hi Mark, The Silver Warrior is just AWESOMENESS!!!!!! Have left comments on your page. Thanks for reading! Glad you liked this storyline, as it’s closer to the novels, which has a (dare I say it) through line of action, and in a way, a beginning middle and end. But in life nothing truly ends, so I’m happy. Big ty and I’m looking forward to seeing more of your work as you seem to be on a roll!!!!! Cheryl

  2. This was a good post and I enjoyed the discussion of eternal life. I think it is realistic that people would think about it and some would refuse. I enjoyed the line “I’d probably end up killing myself. Age does it for you so you don’t have to.” Very nice.

  3. Hi Cheryl! Great “ending” – the build-up over previous issues really lent it a lot of emotional weight. And I love it that Heyem chose the drug. That was just perfect. Lovely drawings as always.

    1. Hi Richard, thank you! Yep, Heyem just couldn’t resist it! She would have surprised me (and everyone else) if she’d walked away from that! She’s unpredictable yet predictable and fundamentally different from her twin sister, Alexand. 🙂

    1. Thanks, Anna, that means a lot to me, as this story is much more like the style of the books they’re based on. (still in the editing process, but hopefully one day they can be released!) I’m glad you like it as it’s all about the characters! 😀

    1. Hi, thank you so much. I love the styles on your blog, they’re very eclectic and I wish I could get away with wearing some of them! It’s good to meet you.

  4. Love your work, as I just found it yesterday there is still a lot to read. I do have a question for you though. Hope you don’t mind answering, Is it easier to write first then illustrate or illustrate then draw?

      1. I wasn’t sure what the best process would be. I always thought that but its nice to have a perspective from someone who does it. Your characters are beautifully done as well

    1. Hi Matthew, thank you, that’s a compliment coming form you as you are a very versatile artist. The coloured pencil drawing of the sand timer and fairy is my favourite. You’re very talented. Good to meet you. Cheryl
