Once the horse was out of the way, Random looked around for something to eat. Since he didn’t get to eat anything under the tree and all he could think about now was food, he went searching for something that would hit the spot.
Random looked all over the store but didn’t see anything that looked really good to him. He then thought way too much about all the options and felt like he was making a once in a lifetime decision when it was a millionth in a lifetime decision and he wouldn’t even remember what he decided a day from now.
Random finally gave up overthinking what he wanted to eat and picked the next thing he saw. He opened the package and started to eat. As he was eating, he didn’t feel like he made the right decision and instantly regretted what he had picked.

Random yelped from the pain. He quickly rubbed his skin where the bubble had touched it. That felt a little better but before Random could do anything else another bubble popped on his other arm and then another bubble popped on top of his head. Random started to scream more from the frustration of getting hit by burning bubbles than the pain they inflicted. Random didn’t enjoy this activity at all so he ran under some trees for cover.
Once Random saw he was safe from the burning bubbles, he looked around at his new surroundings. He found there was a gorgeous spread of food elegantly displayed. Random wondered who the food was for. He looked around and didn’t see anyone, so he decided to make himself a plate and eat some food.
The second Random touched the first piece of food he was transported to the middle of a grocery store. There he saw a cartoon bear eating honey out of a large jar and some bats playing chess. Before Random could react, a horse nudged him in the back and told him to get out of the way. Random stepped aside to allow the horse to move past him.

Once outside Random was pleased to find it had stopped raining. There also wasn’t any indication there would be lightning strikes anywhere nearby. Random breathed a sigh of relief but was startled to see bubbles floating down from the sky. It appeared the sky was raining bubbles now. They didn’t look scary or harmful in anyway, but the sight of seeing them was so different, they gave Random a start. After watching them for a few seconds Random felt calmer. Then one of the bubbles touched Random’s skin and slightly burned him when it popped on his exposed flesh.

Random was a little freaked out that he almost got electrocuted so he went inside to get away from all the lightning. Once inside Random cursed himself because he forgot his facemask in the car. He didn’t want to go back outside in the rain and lightning to get it, so he pulled his shirt up over his nose. This worked for a hot second until a salamander dropped on his head. Random let go of his shirt to swat the salamander away and when he did that a bucket of water was thrown in his face.
Random whisked the water from his eyes to see a group of treefrogs glaring at him. Random didn’t know what to make of the situation and he didn’t like how everyone was looking at him, so he went back outside to brave the elements.

Random didn’t want to be bothered anymore by trying to figure out if he could influence events in his life by his thoughts. It seemed like a lot of experimenting was needed and the results could possibly never be truly verified, so Random decided to move on and do something else with his time.
Random saw the ant crawling on the sidewalk and he thought it would be a good idea to get some food, so Random walked over to the fountain and threw a few pennies in. He made a wish and knew it would never come true so wondered why he just threw money away like that. Since it was only a few cents he didn’t really care all that much. Random saw the leaves blowing in the wind. It was strange because the leaves were attached to the hat of the man writing the e-mail to his friends.
This was all fine and dandy but Random really wanted to do something exciting. He looked all around and didn’t see anything of interest, so he decided to fly a kite. That was okay and sort of fun until it got struck by lightning. Luckily Random let go of the string before he could get electrocuted.

Random wanted to test out his theory so he thought about good positive things. He really concentrated on positive feelings and tried to feel as much of the positive energy flow through him as possible.
He then went about his day expecting miracles to manifest countless times in front of him. The first thing he saw was a giant hippo eating ice cream. Random didn’t know what to make of that so he didn’t count that as anything and moved on.
The next things Random saw was a college student writing a paper on a laptop. Random didn’t know what to make of that either so he moved on again.
Then Random saw a beautiful landscape in the best possible weather. He knew this was a good thing from his positive thoughts. Then it suddenly started to rain. Random got soaked within seconds. He didn’t think this was a result of his positive thoughts but since he was only thinking positive thoughts why would the weather change so drastically and quickly like that? Did having positive or negative thoughts have any influence over anything other than your own mood?

Random felt pretty good with everything that was going on. He hoped things would continue to go well and he would feel happy. He knew that life wasn’t like that and it was inevitable that things would go downhill at some point. Random wondered how much he influenced things going bad from him having expectations that they would. If he didn’t ever expect anything to go wrong, when things did go wrong would they be less severe than if he was expecting something to go wrong? Did he have the power to make things worse by focusing on negative things? At the same time did he have the power to make things better by focusing on positive things?

As Random picked himself up off the ground and rubbed his face where it slammed into the ground, he wondered if karma was actually a thing and it just let him know of its existence. Random didn’t think so but at the same time he didn’t want to completely ignore it in case it was real. He decided he would try to give more of a fuck about other peoples’ feelings, but he would also be sure to make sure he didn’t get walked all over in the process.

Tainaron. Mail from Another City review
Tumblr media
5/5 stars Recommended for people who like: speculative fiction, weird stories, story fragments, slice-of-life, open endings Note: I am only reviewing Tainaron. Mail from Another City, not the entire collection. I may come back one day to review the whole collection, but for now my stars and comments only count for Tainaron. Tainaron is a fairly short story. I think it's maybe 70-some pages in total, with the 'chapters' being no more than a handful of pages each, so it's very easy to get through. That being said, it is also a very, very weird book. Most of the chapters/letters have some strange person or goings on, but it works, because Krohn manages to connect all the weirdness together. It's Alice in Wonderland-weird, not 'my cousin did LSD and wrote a story about his trip'-weird. It's a delicate balance for me when reading stories between Weird Stories that I like and Weird Stories that I don't (and often if I don't like them then I hate them), and there is something about the mix in Tainaron that I like. I really enjoyed how strange the story was and liked each new thing that Krohn brought to the table. Today it's human-sized flowers, a few days later a sinkhole, then winter that you can see coming, etc. It made each chapter/letter feel like its own story, but, as mentioned, also as part of a whole. The narrator is kind of hard to get a grasp on throughout the story. They're a tourist to Tainaron and are writing to someone who never replies. In their letters they describe the things they've experienced while in the city, the nice and the not-so-nice. Parts of it are written in a kind of poetry-prose, which obviously works to conceal the narrator's characterization behind pretty words and cut off phrases, but then other parts of the book are astoundingly open with the narrator's character. They don't shy away from admitting that sometimes they ask too many questions and end up in situations they aren't sure they want to be in. But then other times they reminisce on the past and emphasize these memories that the letters' receiver (and, I suppose, the audience) is supposed to know. The other characters are similarly veiled, with neither the narrator nor the audience really getting to know Longhorn, though the narrator certainly feels as though they know him deeply at the end. Longhorn is a fairly serious fellow, though he does humor the narrator at times and can take her rudeness and questions fairly well. Other than the recipient of the letters, who is never shown nor named, Longhorn is really the only continuous character in the story. The other characters in the story are talked about broadly, and often in the collective. When the narrator is astounded by the Fireflies, it is always the group, never a single individual, that catches their attention. Likewise, the narrator is intrigued by aspects of Queen Bee, but not particularly the Queen Bee herself. It is all broad strokes, yet somehow this doesn't take away from my enjoyment of the story the way not defining characters might in other books. Perhaps it's because Krohn doesn't just not flesh out the characters and leaves it, but rather she draws attention to other aspects of the characters while abandoning the traditional characterization methods (or, at least 'traditional' for English-speaking countries, which neither Leena Krohn nor Tainaron come from). The motifs and themes that cycled through the story were interesting as well. There are some in the first half (ex. individual vs. collective, particularly in regard to identity) that aren't in the second half, but almost all the motifs in the second half of Tainaron are in the first. The three main ones I picked up on throughout the book were: change and continuity, death and immortality, and memory. They can be pretty subtle at times and really feeds into this whole idea that you never really know what's going on in the city and with its inhabitants. The narrator questions a lot of things, which is really when these motifs and themes become obvious, but I though the way that they were woven throughout the story added a layer of complexity to it and really helps to jumpstart some thoughts and questions, which Krohn doesn't necessarily follow through on answering. Overall I really liked Tainaron and thought it was perfectly weird. Krohn doesn't really give you any answers to the questions she and the narrator raise in the book, but I don't think that detracts from it and instead leaves readers with things to think about and flesh out for themselves.

Random didn’t know what to say. He slowly started to remember who he was talking to but wasn’t certain. He just wanted to hang up but couldn’t bring himself to it. He wondered why he couldn’t just hang up without saying a word. It wasn’t like he was going to see this person or talk to them ever again. For some reason he felt like he couldn’t, and he didn’t like how powerless he felt. The person on the other end of the phone started to go off on Random and that snapped him out of his paralysis. He suddenly didn’t get a fuck about this person or what they were saying to him. He hung up the call and felt great to be done with it.
Random strode off feeling good for overcoming his fear of how someone he would never talk to again, felt about him. Then he tripped over a stone and fell face first into the hard ground.

With the lion knocked out and no other immediate dangers present Random slowed his sprint down to a light jog. It felt pretty good to jog off all the adrenaline that was surging through his body. Now Random didn’t know what to do with himself, so he picked up his phone and started to scroll through his contacts. He found someone he had no recollection as to who they are so he figured it would be fun to give them a call. He dialed the number and within a few seconds a disgruntled voice answered. Random said hi and the voice asked what he wanted. Random didn’t know what to say, so he said he was just calling to say hi. The voice didn’t understand since he ghosted her after their second date three months ago, so why was he calling her now? Was he drunk and alone scrolling through his phone looking to hookup with anyone who would respond?

Just as the lion was a few seconds away from coming in contact with Random, Random suddenly didn’t want to get eaten. He wanted very much to live a long and happy life. With this sudden desire not to be eaten, Random turned on his heels and ran as fast as his legs could carry him. Of course, his speed was no match for that of a full-grown lion, but the lion wasn’t prepared for Random to suddenly move at the last second and it didn’t have enough time to adjust its speed, so it ran right past him. As it did the lion turned its head and twisted its body to turn around for another go. Unfortunately, for the lion when it turned its head, it didn’t see the tree it was headed straight for. Before the lion could initiate the full turn, it slammed into the tree knocking itself out cold.

Random was paralyzed. He just stood there watching this enormous cat charge at him. He very much wanted to get out of the way, but he just couldn’t move a muscle. He then felt a kind of peace. He knew he was going to die, and he was okay with that since he also knew he was going to evolve to the next realm, and he was getting more and more excited about that as the lion got closer and closer.

Random felt around in the dark until he found a light switch and flipped it on. When the lights came on, he saw he was in the middle of a grass field. The grass was about waist high and moved back and forth like it was being blown by the wind, but there wasn’t any wind. Random picked up a flat rock and skipped it across the surface of the grass. He was pleased to see it skip about a dozen times before dropping down into the grass. Random knew almost the second he threw the rock that it probably wasn’t a very good idea to throw a rock into waist high grass that could be hiding just about anything or nothing at all.
Of course, in this particular instance the rock did come in contact with a snoozing lion, who wasn’t happy about getting a rock thrown at its head. It promptly stood up and fixed its eyes on Random. Random stood very still thinking that if he moved, it would attract the attention of the lion who was looking at him like it wanted to kill him. The standing still thing didn’t do any good. The lion charged at Random.

Random coughed again and then put on the straw hat that was next to him. Random shouldn’t have been surprised when the hat caught on fire, but he was. He jumped back in the water to get away from the fire before it burned him alive.
Once in the water Random picked up the stapler that was floating by and started to staple the water. This of course didn’t do anything so Random picked up some paper and marbles and tried to staple those together. That didn’t work either. Random was a little annoyed he couldn’t find anything to staple so he discarded the stapler and jumped on the waterslide. The waterslide didn’t really work at all since it was underwater and gravity wasn’t helping push him down the slide so Random blew a bubble with his chewing gum and floated to the surface. As his head broke the surface Random found himself in a warehouse full of undisclosed boxes. Random touched a box and then the lights went out.

Are we just crazy or have things been weird lately? Me and my friend were talking and we realized that things have been whack. Here are some key points from our conversation
-The other day a book fell off my shelf when it had no reason to.
-15 minutes can feel like 1 hour or more and sometimes 1 hour can feel like 15 minutes
-It feels like days are repeating
-It feels like this morning was a whole other day than this afternoon
-It feels like something at night is just keeping you awake
-It feels like something's staring at you or watching you
-Keep forgetting to eat bc I think I already did, when rlly it was the day b4
-Done something on accident that would’ve caused pain but it didn’t (in our case walking into doors and getting up too fast but not falling)
-it feels like things are moved. Like how when you rearrange a room you run into things cuz ur not used to it (we keep running into walls and doors and stuff, which can't move)
-We've only known each other for like, 5 months but it feel like it's been years
We might just be clumsy and weird, but plz tell me if you've experienced anything like this lately, just so we know we aren't crazy 😅
It also might just be because of quarantine and the fact that we don't leave our houses much, but idk

After Random relieved himself, he swam over to the ladder and climbed up on the burning oilrig. It wasn’t a good idea to climb on something that was on fire, but it was at least a place to sit and rest instead of treading water for hours on end. The fire wasn’t covering every square inch so Random was able to find a few square feet to hang out on and not get burned. Then Random saw a seagull fly by with a plastic straw in its mouth. It then dropped the straw and Random coughed. He didn’t know if the two things were related or if he was coughing due to breathing in enormous amounts of smoke. He figured it was because of the dropped straw.
