Greetings, I am Merlos the Mad. I am a dabbler of both words and wizardry in my free time. I also invite you all to partake in my musings. Take care though, as they are the product of a madman.

Greetings, Lords and Ladies, I bid you welcome to my humble home. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Merlos, Merlos the Magnificent, of mystery and merriment, master of magic and today of literary device... Alliteration not withstanding of course. I greatly enjoy relaxing before a warm fire with pipe and a flagon of brew. Also and more recently, writing, song crafting and even some artsing. If you by chance have heard from, I likewise ask that you ignore those philistines claiming myself and my mind are mad. I'm not mad, I'm a magus. Moreover however move aside and allow an arcane analytically articulate artisan such as myself to magnanimously magnificate my most mysteriously magical mastery of word wizardry and worldly wisdom.

And done.

Hello everyone, just an update. · 2:39pm March 6th

Well, suffice it to say, my renewed effort to start updating to schedule once again didn't pan out. It was maybe a bit naive of me to try and hold myself to that, especially considering how bad my track record had been the last couple of years. Still, I felt I had to try.

Hope you're doing alright. I first read Thunder Struck back before I had an account here. I'm glad to see your still kicking. My condolences to you and your family.

Been forever since I’ve logged in to check your stories, sorry to hear about your dad, my mom passed away suddenly about 2 months ago and I completely understand your lack of updates. Just know that no matter when you come back I’ll be here to read your stuff, even if it is a few months after. :derpytongue2:


it's sad to think about the show's ending. Ah well. Many thanks for the condolences, Poke, and yah I'll try and update >.< lol

For some reason, the word "Abhorsen" kept crossing my mind earlier.
Lo and behold, I return here to find all this.
Last year... sucked.
Do what you gotta do, man. I'm glad you're alright at least.
Looks like the ride's finally ending soon for us G4's. Can't wait to see the end of the series...
And perhaps, one day, the ending of this one. Keep kicking life in the pants, dude.
Have a high quality rip to go.
