  • The Fleet at Deau-Vere.

    I believe Jhone, Jhorg, Phowl and Rhunga are in there somewhere too...
    'You know, I can't keep up with you. If I hadn't met you in person, I quite honestly would NOT believe you really existed. I just COULDN'T. You do so MUCH... if half of what goes into your zines is to be believed, you've read more at the age of 17 than I have at the age of 32 - LOTS more'

    Who or what do you think these names refer to ?
    Seepage from deep,black,brittle experiments which failed and transformations too hard to find.
    "I was overcome and turned to red"
    Duster's dust became the sale.
    Lucifer the light.
    A restless motion came to move and then subside.
    In endless knocking at the door-It is time.

      Blans-a-credid!!!

      ...and I had always pronounced it Blan-sac-redid :lol:

      Didn't help that I had consequently misheard the lyrics to Magnu as
      "Come to me Blansacredid" (my pronounciation)....
      Does it follow that I reject all authority? Perish the thought. In the matter of boots, I defer to the authority of the boot-maker.

          That's one I'd never got either and for the same reason - mis-splitting. I always thought of it as Blan-sacred-id

          Try saying them out loud in this order:
          Jhone, Phowl, Jhorg and Rhunga

          (Jhone Lynn On, Phowl Mukar-t-nأ¬, Jhorg Arrzzzon, Rhunga Sh'tah) :D
