The Antivan Affair - Ch. 1
Warning: there's a mugging below the cut. No serious violence otherwise.
The rest of this fic is on my AO3! It gets wackier.
Syrillon’s steps were alone on the pavement. The stiff heels of his boots knocked mutely against the mingling of moss and cobble underfoot. Lanterns hung from brass posts or stayed fixed to the underside of balconies, providing islands of gold-hued light in the otherwise blue-toned world. Hiking up his steps, he made the pilgrimage up a gradual slope, traversing past brick and wood planters, the lopsided half-steps to the buildings lining his side of the street. Each window he passed, cross-hatched by little metal lines, looked in on a similarly blank world. If he paused to peer inside, he might make out a distant countertop, or the covered racks of baked goods.
The street widened, the pavement changing from mossy cobble to cracked and faded marble. The old quarter, a sprawling circle, lay out in front of him. He skirted its rotund perimeter, hiking up the bag on his arm. He focused on his steps, trying to keep his toes within the flat spaces of marble paving stones; never crossing a gap or a crack in their surface. He hopped between them, entertaining himself, until he reached a new pool of yellow light.
Something shuffled nearby. Snapping to attention, he gripped his knapsack’s strap in a tight fist. Scanning the darkened courtyard, he walked with slow strafes towards its far estuary, lined by under-hued amaryllis. Breaths slow and controlled, he strained to hear any further movement. Swallowing dryly, he kept wide eyes on the open space. One, two, three steps; he was nearly to the courtyard exit.
A warm wind rushed through the courtyard and all the foliage surrounding it roared together in a chorus. Wincing from the sudden jump in sound, Syrillon was momentarily caught unawares. Something shifted--a shadow against the dim blue scene, somewhere across the courtyard--
A body slammed harshly against him, thumping into his chest. He collided with the wall of a stone building at his back, smacking roughly against the uneven bricks. A sharp jab shot through his shoulder blade and into his chest, forcing him to take in a gasp for air. At the same time, gloved hands kept him herded against the wall. One gripped at his arm, pinching and squeezing, bruising his bare skin. The other, with the quiet scrape of a blade unsheathed, pressed to his throat. The tip of the short knife pressed into the underside of his jaw, its length barely catching distant lantern light. Syrillon froze in place, head pressed as hard into the stone as possible, the jagged surface cutting into his scalp.

Book Review of The Fate of a Flapper
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Speakeasies, prohibition cocktails like the Bees Knees and the Corpse Reviver are all the rage now. Bars with hidden entrances and secret passwords sound like fun. But in the 1920s, speakeasies were necessary but also dangerous at times. They were the bars the cops couldn’t find and patrons went to wet their whistle over a dark and stormy or a gin blossom while listening to music.…

Shadows House episode 6 - Proposal
Shadows House episode 6 – Proposal
Oh boy, oh man, oh my! Things are afoot, plots are thickening but we still don,t have any answers. I love a mystery, so tis works for me. And I feel like the presentation and execution of Shadows House leads me to beleive that the story isn’t just stumblng about blindly and this is all heading somewhere. However, that somewhere might not be somewhere fun or worse, it could be boring. Still, this…

Some Korea fact: When there's a cartoon or an anime that mentions karate, in the Korean dub most of it is altered Tae kwon do.
I assume it's some cultural localization stuff like...jelly donuts.
