Through Felteryme’s viewport Locke observed
Pickanickl’s quest halted, caged like a bird;
Oggress the Gnarl through jagged grin
Declared “Drop the Paniom, let it begin!”

Locke cast aside a withering glance
As she’d discovered just by chance
Her first born son, Caldane, too caged
‘Though she was too pleased to be enraged.

“Silence, Oggress,” Locke commanded
Although “fetch the Paniom”, she demanded.
Mystic K’Sandra did as she was asked,
Bringing Time’s Control: an easy task.

Far below the Mount of Light,
In the P’Tor Caves, out of sight,
Ynayna shuddered in the cold.
The frozen mount’s tension did she behold.

Following the conclusion of last week’s The Co-ordination of Supervillains’ first series, we now return to another group of characters, this time from Everplain and the surrounding area, for Six Sentence Stories. The button to the left links to Denise’s site, if you’d like more details.

(This button, by the way, is entitled ‘Sunssset’)

The prompt word for this week’s Six Sentence Story is Tension.

The story will continue over the next few weeks… and previous parts of this Epic Mythology storyline will be found in my Storylines menu. (Pickanickl’s Quest will be added shortly).

    1. Aw, thanks, Sue! 😊
      I didn’t know who was going to replace the supervillains, but I noticed I was being pulled in this direction as the days passed by!
      I just have to create something! 😁

  1. I agree with Sue. Your imagination is endless.
    Just when I think I have the characters figured out, I figure out I don’t. I like the rhyming in this Six Sentence Story.
    Are you sure you weren’t given advance notice of the word ‘tension’? Sure didn’t take you long to write it. 🙂

      I’ve thousands of characters jabbering away in my head, Ladysighs, some of whom start jabbering a little louder than others! 🤣
      As for the prompt word? Nope, no advance notice… in fact, Denise had published her post an hour before I’d even noticed it.
      With some of these sixes, I do have some pre-written, which then require a quick edit/rewrite before I publish, but this was written after I knew the prompt word. I didn’t know who would be featuring as replacements for the supervillains, although Epic Mythology did start to appear ‘in the light’ as the week progressed.
      Oops… got a bit carried away with my reply there. Thanks, Ladysighs! 🙂

  2. Wonderful word artistry and use of the six sentence prompt. Your imaginative flare for the written word makes for a fun and interesting read. The names of your characters are great too. I like Oggress the Gnarl and Mystic K’Sandra. 😊 Looking forward to more.

    1. Hehehe! 😎🤣
      I’m pleased you’ve picked up on the Nordic feel, Nick. I didn’t intend going down that route when I started this tale eons ago, but it seems to have followed that path by itself! 🙂

    1. I agree, Mimi… it is!
      I’ve known these characters for some time now, but it’s just as good getting to know them again! 🙂

  3. Dude!

    While we’ve come to expect character names with over-tones adding to both our understanding and enjoyment of your characters that most of us spend paragraphs trying to capture… but rhyming too?
    very cool.

    1. Thanks Clark! 😊
      The characters in my Epic Mythology stories tend to have somewhat different names, I’m thinking I subconsciously did that so I wouldn’t use them at the end of a line… rhyming challenges and all that! 🙂

    1. It’s the characters, Denise, not me! 😄
      Pickanickl will be added to the Storylines as soon as I get around to doing it! I have a feeling she may be popping up in future Epic Mythology posts too! 🙂
