Part 4: Define the open skies
Every prison takes its certain shape. Some cages are gilded, some barren, some empty and dead. Some exist in wilderness, in solitude under the open sky. Some are clear, others not so much. A lifetime spent without purpose. A purgatory awaiting death. A sentence suspended. Painful care taken at every turn.
And yet the bird still sings. It pushes at its cage. It dismantles, slowly, the very nature of its prison.
And then you see the caged bird fly.
- In the world of double realities, one narrative is public, and one is real.
- Eapherod has been here all along.
- None of this happened the first time.
- Different things happened the first time.
- Events may repeat themselves, precede their causes, and take different forms in different stories. They are the same events.
- Some languages transcend meaning. They cannot be translated, for they simply are. These are the languages of gods, and of darker things.
- The Dark Sister is neither living nor dead.
As the bird flies
