    There was once a space, between the place of your birth and the place where you were, measured in moments of latitude and the relative movement of a distant and uncaring sun.

    She still believed in the sun. The same way she still believed in gravity. It was something that was there and couldn't be escaped, but it wouldn't catch her now that she'd started to fall.

    The Skyking Flies Still

    "I wasn't really planning on landing." -- The Skyking

    People disappear from the internet. Blogs are abandoned, forums fade and last posts are made. You might wonder what happened to them, but you'll never know.

    Everything is True; Nothing is Permitted

    Krakatoa just went kraka-boom and that great lady might be setting a trend among her sisters.

    I hope the first time you heard about this was from a My Little Pony fanfiction website, so you can enjoy the freely-floaty feeling.

    Unfortunate paralells to the Nazarene

    Not as undead as one would suspect. Utter distate for the brains of others I have met. Most of them anyway.
    Raising a toast, but it isn't really mine and the toast is actually grape juice.

"I wasn't really planning on landing." -- The Skyking

That isn't the case for Richard Russell's shortlived blog. Presumably created at the bayonet point of a grader's pencil, he only made a few posts and then dropped off without ceremony.
Eight months after his last post and one year ago (again) today, the Skyking grabbed for the brass ring which had been held just out of reach for his entire life, and this postmodern Icarus did something beautiful for himself.

But from that selfish heroism we are all left richer. There is no need to mourn him because his flight shall last forever.
