    Bookmarker's Notes

    It would be much, much easier if they could hate Ralsei. They can't. In the same way that he was made to dislike violence and believe in mercy, he was also made to be impossible to hate. Lovability radiates out from him like the sun generates light. They can no more escape the force of his charisma than a planet can escape the gravity of its star.

    She barely even remembered going back to Atlantis. She spent two months there.

    Summary

    It is Sakura’s very first solitary mission. The parameters are clear, and despite the low probability of conflict, in its way, the mission is important.

    Winter in the Land of Iron is notoriously brutal, and the flu season is dangerous to the elderly. Sakura is to go to the Land of Iron and help an old lady recover from her cough.

    That’s all. That’s it.

    Summary

    The Failbetter Discord server got to thinking last night, and I felt my writing brain rekindled - like a menorah. The original Seeking storyline is so entrenched in Christianity that it was fascinating to consider the alternative; here’s a take on what it’s like to be a Jewish Seeker of the Name.

    I’m Jewish, so I drew on a lot of my own background for this, but huge thanks to necromancybitch for helping me workshop and build up these ideas! Bonus thanks to Wiwaxia foliosa, Bananatron, and the Forgettable Curator, among others, for giving me extra creative fuel.

    This story contains spoilers for essentially the entirety of Seeking Mr Eaten's Name, including - in concept at least - the Grieve ending.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    You have endured so much. Yet still you scream, and the worshippers and the priest come running - only to find you walking, as you burn, to light each candle…

    You are the shamash. The leader. The one who spreads their light, to help the people remember.
