The Whale’s Wisdom Chapter 1 – A Moby-Dick Analysis

 Loomings

or how to treat depression in a totally normal and healthy way

As far as first lines go, “Call me Ishmael” might seem mundane at the start; you wouldn’t be blamed for assuming the narrator is introducing himself and nothing more. But like the rest of Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, so many lines are packed with hidden morsels of meaning, making this whale of a book a new voyage with every reading. Like a great film or television series, Moby-Dick is a book that invites the audience to discover more with each journey through it. Every time I read it, I’m taken on a new figurative adventure that lends further insight into the book’s deeper questions. For a margin-scribbler like myself, this epic draws me in again and again to find something new between its pages while rediscovering my own old musings and how the reader I was compares to the one I am today.

What is Blood of Five Nations

 May you find your worth in the waking world.

The Doll

 Nearly two years ago, I launched a Dungeons & Dragons campaign for a group of friends that was set in the Bloodborne universe. Among those friends, only one had a deep understanding of the setting and the lore from the original game, so I decided to craft a story that would inform my players of the world as they explored it, but also offer some surprises for those who already knew a thing or two about the PlayStation 4 title. Blood of Five Nations is a prosaic reimagining of this campaign and is written in much the same spirit. In short, it’s Bloodborne fan-fiction. Even if you are completely unfamiliar with Bloodborne, you should be able to enjoy this story.

Bloodborne – Blood of Five Nations

 It was trapped between two lungs.

Florence Welch, Lungs

What is this? What am I about to read? 

i

Blood flooded the battered veins of their beleaguered bodies. Sight was granted back into their skulls before the muscles in their eyelids were strong enough to lift. So they sat for the first few moments of life, blinded by birth, afraid and vulnerable to the din of sensation cascading over withered plains when they’ve drunk up the absentee rain. Then the first breath – and the world was burning.
