Character and Song #32: Davis

Davis is pretty cool. He dresses like a punker/goth, sometimes dons ironic Hipster glasses, and is usually very calm and collected. He speaks quietly, thinks intensely, and is usually gentle. With black hair, green eyes, and a mixed ethnicity he understands Ani’s own mixed background quite well. He’s a cold and guides Aniella through her […]

Character and Song #29: Mark James Blue

Ah, here he is, finally. The darkest creature in all existence. Not literally, although there is a bit where he does indeed become probably the darkest thing in the universe. Spoilers. Mark Blue has two sides: the fun-loving, ever-pranking, constantly aroused, rough and tumble boy and the perpetually depressed, angry, and impossibly understanding soul. His […]

Character and Song #21: Queen Aeryn

The queen of all vampires. The first logmin vampire. A vindictive bitch. With long black hair, piercing brown eyes, and caramel skin linking her to ancient Egypt, Queen Aeryn has appetites bigger than Earth. A good bit of her character is based on the lover I lost to death a few weeks ago. One of […]

The Cuil Effect

The name of my integrated works that stem from The Black Tree series is called The Cuil Effect. Why? Because cuil theory is fantastic and absurd and yet still ties together just like life. I first happened upon cuil theory when a friend posted a link to a video by Roy Kelly that made me […]
