The last section left everything seeming pretty much finished. Which is a horrible way to end a section in a serial story. As you’ll see today, Ethaniel’s night isn’t over yet.

Welcome to the last part of Bearers of Bronze. Catch up on the story through the links above if you’ve missed it.

*rolling of drums*

Bearers of Bronze – Part 4: General and Noble

Never had each step taken so long. Never had each quarter league dragged on for such length or passed by in such a flash. Ethaniel’s arm tightened around Drexin as the messenger stumbled. Not long now. At least Drexin would be able to rest. Ethaniel gritted his teeth. Idiots, and he was the largest of them all. He pushed off the path.

Drexin blinked, straightening with a wince. “Where…?”

Bearers of Bronze – Part 1: Healer and Half-Blood

You’ve probably heard of Fidelyon, by now. That novel I’ve been working on for years and am currently trying to trim to a manageable length.

While writing a prequel short story.

I say short. It will probably be novelette length. Regardless, after much (like, a whole five minute’s worth) deliberation, I thought you might enjoy seeing how some of the main characters in Fidelyon first met. Just keep in mind that it is currently a work in progress and I’ve not polished yet. Basically, there might be some typoes…

But without more ado, here is part one of Bearer’s of Bronze, an account of events that happened four years before the novel, when Ethaniel was fifteen.

Fidelyon: ‘X’ with Ethaniel

Ethaniel, the main character in my novel, Fidelyon, has taken it upon himself to introduce you to his world by going through an alphabet of terms and names.

 

Yeah… X. That letter that no one actually uses to start a word with. So we’re just going to pretend that X stands for ‘random fun facts’. Because why can’t it stand for that, after all?

Fidelyon has gone through a number of titles, the first one being Legend of the Shield and one of the most recent titles being The Shield and the Spear. Yes, I like Fidelyon better too. Why do you think we went with it?

Fidelyon was founded in the summer of 2012 and started off as a 20-minute movie that was partly cool and partly horrible and only a few elements remain. The hero’s name was Artos and his companion was Tristin. I do believe Dartagnah and Silvara are the only two names that survived.

Fidelyon: Shadows of the Palace

Many of you have heard me talk about Fidelyon, my longest work to date. On occasion, while writing the novel, I also take time to write backstory or extra scenes. Here’s the rough, unedited (kinda…I’ve gone over it once or twice but I’m sure there are still typos) draft of one such scene.

It takes place three years before Fidelyon and recounts the first time two of my secondary character, Jagger and Seamus, meet. Jagger is 15, Seamus is 9, and Jagger has just arrived at the palace to live with his uncle after the death of his family at the hands of Volandum Raiders.

Fidelyon: ‘W’ with Ethaniel

‘W’ with Ethaniel:

Ethaniel, the main character in my novel, Fidelyon, has taken it upon himself to introduce you to his world by going through an alphabet of terms and names.

 

Wolves, of course. Not the nasty savage ones I’ve heard rumors about in other worlds; these are real wolves. I mean, I suppose they can be savage enough if let loose. But tamed, they make swift mounts and great beasts of war. Standing with their shoulders as high as a man’s chest, they are strong and can cover a distance two or three times the speed of a horse. Their gait is much smoother as well, I might add. And don’t look at me like that. Just because I’m Elentisaren doesn’t mean the Volandums get to keep all the cool things.

Fidelyon: ‘U’ and ‘V’ with Ethaniel

‘U’ with Ethaniel:

Ethaniel, the main character in my novel, Fidelyon, has taken it upon himself to introduce you to his world by going through an alphabet of terms and names.

Unfinished. Hey, don’t look at me like that. It’s the best I could come up with. Besides, it’s true. We’ve been working on this history upward… five years now? It’s still not done. The good news is that it is coming along, at least that is what Hope tells me. She just finished what she calls the ‘rewrite draft’ last week. She’s still muttering about it, though she tries not to let me hear. Something about too many things happening and too many people taking a role in the story. She has this structure which each part of the history supposed to be somewhat similar in length. Apparently, that didn’t happen. Don’t blame me. Here’s what the draft turned out to be.

Fidelyon: ‘S’ and ‘T’ with Ethaniel

‘S’ with Ethaniel:

Ethaniel, the main character in my novel, Fidelyon, has taken it upon himself to introduce you to his world by going through an alphabet of terms and names.

Seamus! He’s a slight lad; red curls and an impish grin. For some reason, he seems to have devoted himself to me, beyond his position as my page. I’ve no clue why, but he’s diligent enough. Of course, he always seems to be chattering about something or another. Not to mention his impish delight in seeing how many items he can steal from our pouches and belts without us noticing. I honestly ought to speak with Lasher about his so-called ‘ranger training’ but Seamus takes such delight in it that I keep putting it off and by now it’s probably too late.
