Liquid Truth


Life's still pretty great

There are a lot of different worlds out there, connected with infinite expanses of bizarre biomes known as the Worldsbridges. Twilight is in one of them, lost and unable to get back.

Guided by the silent music of the Worldsbridges themselves, Luna journeyed to find her, even if it means walking the endless roads forevermore.

That was beautiful.
you have a great sense of prose!

Interesting concept, the prose here is wonderful and I’m a sucker for TwiLuna. I’ll be keeping an eye on this :twilightsmile:

Huh, certainly an interesting thing to have worlds with music as the form of communication.

An enjoyable read so far :twilightsmile: I don’t think I have seen such a specific writing style as yours in a long while.

Very interesting... Can't wait to see where this goes!

Huh, from the little description blurb alone, it sounds like a SotS story set in the strands. I look forward to reading this.

Huh.

I see what you're doing here.

For those who didn't see it, I'll just say this:

Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme

Interesting - definitely be following this one.

Climbing up a few steps, she found a shrub with wiry stems and small oval leaves that smells pungent and spicy.

Tense change there.

Well, she didn't get a chance to wash the shirt in yonder dry well (or desert valley in this case), but she did create the means to do so where no rain has fallen or water sprung up, so hopefully the spirit of the thing will count.

A strange story still, but I'm enjoying it still. :)

Well that escalated quickly.

I can't say I understand much of what's going on, but it's very stylistically interesting.

Ah, the old "can't do it if you know about it" paradox.

You've been putting some interesting tales into this story.

I love the different dreams.

I still have no idea what's going on in this story, and yet, it's a beautiful experience to read :twilightsmile:

Dutch East Indies, a Dutch colony that is now the Indonesian archipelago (otherwise known as Nusantara, literally "The Islands Between"), was what inspired the Inbetweenian Archipelago, Dandelion, the Verenigosts, Gus, and Rafflesia. Dandelion and Rafflesia I exported from two historical figures, Herman Willem Daendels and Stamford Raffles, while Gus I took from an everpresent name there, Agus. The Verenigosts was a blatant portmanteau from Dutch East Indies' Dutch name, Vereenigde Oostindische Compagnie.

I knew something felt familiar! It's not so often that my country or its history gets mentioned so, this is a lovely detail :twilightsmile:

This has been a fun, refreshing read, hope to see more wonderous tales. Cheers.

Very enjoyable.

Fiction that steers deeply into the fantastic can be mesmerizing (like in this story) or completely off the rails (pun intended).

Wonderful job and I look forward to your upcoming works.

Nice. :)

Well, a journey of weird and fluff it may indeed have been, but I think I did enjoy it, yes. :)

Thanks for the notes.

And for writing. :)

Scarborough Fair, a traditional English ballad that was later popularized by Simon & Garfunkel, was the one that started it all. It made the basis of Luna's entire journey arc until she found Twilight and the idea of munching herbs to gain what they symbolize: parsley is comfort; thyme is courage; sage is strength; rosemary is love.

Quite so, though I confess that set me up with certain expectations - I notice how Luna's actions mirrored the first two tasks of the song and was expecting the other four to happen some way shape or form, but they didn't. Or, at least, I didn't notice them if they did (and I was looking).

Regardless of my expectations, though, this was a thoroughly entertaining and interesting read. Very well done.

This story is one of Those stories. You know, the one you put on your read-later list because it looks interesting and you've heard nothing but the highest praise for it, but you just haven't gotten around to reading. This was that story for me until today.

I can now say that I have read one of the best, if not the best, story on this site. The unique high-concept for this story was what made me interested, both as a writer, and as a musician. This story delivers on that concept, and it delivers in spades. I could not ask for anything better than this. I am floored by this story.

As a musician, I felt like I could hear the music of the story, because this is as much music as it is prose. It's a beautiful mix of both! The musical language and syntax choices makes the entire work feel like, I don't even have the words for this. I'd need music to fully explain why I love this story.

Dear author, I must thank you for this story. The world is a better place for having this story in it.

This was absolurely delightful! Thank you for sharing the Worldbridges!

I really adore it when stories go all-in on mythic storytelling, and this story absolutely delivered. A wonderfully weird, beautiful, evocative treasure.

Nice fanfic, but I'd have preferred if the 2 mares weren't shipped right of the bat without background.

Congratulations on this getting on EQD. :)
