Interesting. Did they want to be in there or were they put in there?
They started exploring out of curiosity, from the 19th Century (1881) to the early 20th Century, then 21st, then 22nd, and so on, but around the 24th Century their presence was… NOTED, and then 25th Century saw them again, making the world know Time Travel is possible, an arms race was made to try and catch the Time Travellers that ended with an ambush in the 35th Century before they just went MAXIMUM SPEED to try and escape the 35th Century Political Factions, but some of them got inside the Carriage, as the Time Bubble was generated, so they’re trying to kick them out of the carriage, if you fall down from the Carriage, you pretty much appear in the time the carriage was passing through when you fell, so in the soldier from the extract, he appeared in an Ice Age WAY after humanity went extinct
The Bubble can be controlled to reduce speed or even invert direction, so they’re able to go into the past, but they need to make sure the carriage does not fall in hands of the people from the future as they would destroy the timeline, no era can be trusted with such technology, not even their native time (19th Century) so their plan is to destroy the carriage when they can
That sounds like a twist on The Time Machine, and a time traveling episode I saw on Star Trek.
Would they try to destroy the carriage even if they end up stuck in an era that isn’t their own?
Are they able to see (not meet) themselves and their children in the future or it doesn’t work like that?
I find this funny.
And a good friend of Copteri’s was Lizard Billy Boy who was “the son of a snake and the grandson of a frog” and had “the most insatiable appetite for lily pads”.
It’s just so random and stupid XD
(This is a single sentence lmao. Ambitious story needs ambitious sentences)
We are water coursing through the land, each a rivulet, unaware of the many other rivulets until a Word binds them together, forms a stream, then winds to a great surge of a river, then the open sea, the swells, a great mass that threatens to break even the sturdiest ship — here, the Word is sung, each syllable stretched out in a sweet melisma that rises and falls and bends around those pitiful souls gathered in the den, finds the right string to strike within each that makes them gush; just yesterday our handsome Ady, having listened to the Word, prostrated before its singer, plead for nothing but to hear the Word, disavowed his wife and child and joined the Merry Band who follow this singer, shouting and dancing in great joy every night as if they had found the greatest boon — there he is now, clouded in opium smoke, right in the front row, unaware of the great scandal he has caused back home, unaware of the thugs his father-in-law has sent to bring him back, and if need be, kill this singer, this enchantress Sweetflower who rather oddly resembles the great beauties she sings about, more, he is unaware of the enemies rising like the tides of the estuary in Souwa where he has followed the Word to, but here, for now he feels elation, he feels a part of the mass, and he weeps.
That was a lot.
Well, this is 2, but it makes me laugh.

Today? An homage to The Last Unicorn, that I’m not sure that people will pick up on because the wording is fairly different:
He bet that she had no idea that her confident arrogance would have made her edible even if he viewed her as plain. This kind of woman was the longing and nightmares of his youth. Who was she, to come to him when he was old and jaded?
I never read that book, but I do love this, especially the last line. (ღ˘ᴗ˘ღ)
It’s things like this that show we are what we consume.
