Hi, I'm V. It's not my real name - not even close - but I'm Vigilo here, and I've been other V-beginning pretentious Latin usernames elsewhere on the internet for around six years now, so V works!

If you need anything, or if you just want to talk, feel free to comment / note me. :note:

I haven't replied to you yet because
- I reply at a glacial pace
- I accidentally deleted your message and can't find it
- I've awkwardly, silently backed away
- I've already replied to you by somewhere else
- I mentally replied to you and considered the matter closed
- I love you and I don't want to lower your opinion of me any further

prose


Santos de Sampaguitas
by Alyssa Wong is a short fantasy story in two parts and you can read the full thing at the link. It's pretty short, sweet, and simple, but I really like it for the way it's told - it's lovely reading.

No, says the god. It has no eyes in its empty, hollow face, but somehow it manages to look away. Not any more. Your mother is dead.

The waking dream shatters. I bolt upright in my bed, drenched in cold sweat. The dead god is gone.

poetry


I don't think I've put this up before though I did have a quote from this poem as a journal title once, but I don't even care if I have, because Eurydice by H.D. is always perfect, no matter what. This is but an excerpt of this amazing poem:
At least I have the flowers of myself,
and my thoughts, no god
can take that;
I have the fervour of myself for a presence
and my own spirit for light;

and my spirit with its loss
knows this;
though small against the black,
small against the formless rocks,
hell must break before I am lost;


  • Listening to: Eyes On Fire by Blue Foundation.
  • Reading: The Hindus: an alternative history by W. Doniger.
  • Watching: Avatar: The Last Airbender, the TV show (shush).

It's been a breath of fresh air to see you around again, V. You know we missed you more than any of us - even those that are writers! - can put words to, right?

Anyways, you favorited a piece of my writing, and seeing a favorite from you always makes my day. Actually, just seeing anything from you makes my day, but don't let the diminish my appreciation stemming from the fact that you actually took the time to read a piece from me. ;p

All the :heart:s, V.

Darling, I was looking for that lovely poem you wrote based on Federico Garcia Lorca's poem about green. Can you point me in the right direction? Or possibly remind me what the form is called? I'm thinking of writing something like it :)
