I posted one of my slightly older stories, a wRHG battle against Sadko. Normally, I wouldn't post wRHG battles, because they're more vignettes than actual stories. However, there's a bit more going on with this one, so I thought I'd post it up and then write up some comments.

This is a companion to "Jasper vs. Sadko", which you should read for context before jumping into this. I'll be talking about wRHG as a platform in general, then some plot development.

(And no, I haven't seen Chinatown. I really should, though.)

One of my favorite words in the English language is "defenestration", largely because it exists.

The great thing about a dedicated writing blog is that now instead of yapping at specific people about my writing, I can yap into the aether and self-indulgently talk about stuff nobody cares about.

This set of essays is a companion to my short story, "Apples and Cinnamon", which you should read for context before reading this (also because it's a nice story and it would make me feel fuzzy). I'll be discussing origins, thought processes in (re)writing, style, symbolism, interpretation, and themes, so whenever you're ready, go ahead and hit the jump.

Title: To Hell and Back
Author: Jessepinwheel
Date: April 2015
Summary: A modern remix of the myth of Persephone and Hades in which the gods are instead influential people. A stage play in three parts.
A/N: I wrote this for a project in Theatre 101 in which we had to write, practice, and perform a 7-10 minute play based on a fairy tale or myth. We ended up choosing the Greek myth of Persephone and Hades, or more specifically the Homeric Hymn to Demeter, which you can read about here if you so desire. Knowledge of the myth isn't necessary, though.

Warnings: Brief discussion of suicide, death in general

A/N: This story is based on ErrorBlender's Past Projection entry in the Valley of Dreams tournament that I hosted a while back on the StickPage Writer's Lounge, readable here (first story), but all characters here are my own. You don't have to have read that story to understand this one.
Commentary: Sugar and Spice
