I swear, I'm still working on 𝒮𝒶𝓋𝑒 𝓉𝒽𝑒 𝒟𝒶𝓇𝓀 𝒢𝑜𝒹𝒹𝑒𝓈𝓈. I'm just relaxing this weekend and watching all the first episodes of all the new Anime first. So far Kakushigoto is my favorite, but there are three or four other shows that look really good already. It's going to be a great season.
So, I'm done writing short stories. It worked. It took a while, but my writer's block is gone. I had fun writing crap out of my head that was getting in the way, and presenting it on /r/shortscifistories. Now I'm coming back and writing the long form stories that have collected in my head. One of the first ones is called:
𝒮𝒶𝓋𝑒 𝓉𝒽𝑒 𝒟𝒶𝓇𝓀 𝒢𝑜𝒹𝒹𝑒𝓈𝓈
Rest assured, it's a Jasher story.
Jasher had jumped into things because he finally found what he called a "knot". ONE EVENT in the history of an entire Universe that could change everything at once for the positive.
It was so clear
In this Universe, roughly five billion years into its timeline, when energy levels were so much higher, a powerful leader used a cheat device in a public charity match with another one, and accidentally killed him. This ignited a ten billion year war. The loss was absolutely staggering. Jasher was going to show up just before this happened.
The arena was pure aesthetics. They had crafted it out of solid quartz on top of an active volcano that was carefully monitored and regularly vented. The floor was a milky 40 feet thick, but still stunningly lit by rock fire from below. The quartz top had been carefully micro-etched for traction. Jasher simply appeared in the middle of it.
Tran Crizop halted immediately, as did Ranmuy (only one name). Thi…
(almost all my stories are timed to the music linked. It's based on reading speed. I put roadblock words in place to keep the pace pretty uniform for most folks if you are reading at a fun comfort conversational level. Some of you will pick up on it. The songs matter. Read and listen at the same time. Sometimes it can be amazing.) What This Story Is
This story is the continuation and merging of FOUR other stories. (you aren't crazy, it was five)
(IF YOU SEE ME!!!) <---SEE!! Pɾσƚɾαƈƚҽԃ Rҽαƈƚισɳ Tιɱҽ which is an epic adventure where Jasher has to relocate the Earth immediately. ｆＩｘＩｎＧ ｔＥｄ which has a brilliant Goddess of tech on the run from the most dangerous Universe in history, with her kidnapped human toy in tow. 𝒯𝒽𝑒 𝐸𝒶𝓈𝓎 𝒪𝓃𝑒𝓈 where a spaceship thief named Frank has stolen a lot of spacecraft. Sometimes it's very easy.
𝓣𝓱𝓮 𝓤𝓵𝓽𝓲𝓶𝓪𝓽𝓮 𝓡𝓲𝓭𝓮 which is itself a starter story to an epic chain of stories that cover the birth of The Ridestars, an…
"I'm one of the people reading since the SA forum reposts. You write Jasher completely out of order, then go back and destroy the Multiverse and rewrite it because that's what Jasher does. So that means you can just tell us the end and it shouldn't matter. You made Jasher and only Jasher knows it."
S.M. --(a comcast email address)
Kay is literally the soul of the Multiverse. Jasher loves her and has to save her. He just can't actually know that, know that until the very end.
Jasher couldn't have done things any other way than he did to stumble through the Multiverse, and fix things with it in order to untie the greatest Gordian Knot plot in history.
Jasher wins. He gets one side of the cube solid, then the rest falls into place. Duh, Time Coder. All he ever needed was one side.
After he secures our multiverse, brings everyone back, and makes all of our Universe unite (all the fictions we created end up manifest because they deserve life too. Every T…
"You think I'm lying" said Jasher plainly. "I tell you what. You don't have any concept the energy it costs to do what I've been doing here forever. I'll turn the shit off. I warned you. God, I wish Kay was here to see this." Wolf News main anchor, Bret Starling was ready. This was his moment. The moment that would define his entire career. The guy that had just appeared out of thin air an hour ago was the one Washington called about that could just show up and get right past security. The guy that put the space ship in front of the moon. It was later explained that he hacked the satellite feeds. This guy was a super hacker. If he was careful here, he'd win a daytime Emmy. Suddenly, next to the hippy looking hacker guy, out of thin air was... no other way to say this, what looked for all the world like Audrey Hepburn. Just, boom. One second nobody, the next, there.
