Soundtrack: Trygve Wartooth

Apparently, there WAS a reason I couldn’t update over the weekend. Turns out that an impromptu trip to the gym to swim laps will knock you out early if you didn’t plan for it. Anyway, as I edit and work, I’ve been rewatching Riverdale, which is a show that should have been a terrible failure but somehow works.

It was true what they said, Solstheim didn’t have weather, just ash. The women pulled their scarves tighter around their faces as they trudged toward the fort. The lulls in the storms were long enough to gain some momentum, but when the winds blew, the ash whipped around them, settling into the cracks and creases in their clothing and skin. It was terribly unpleasant and Evangeline was beginning to regret pushing them to go to the Fort. Continue reading
