Meet Bitter Pill- the new kid in Agnishatdal! Sorry for the late intro!

Meet the new author of Agnishatdal, s/he is writing for two months now, his/her works are really powerful or strong I will say! Its hard to tell after two posts, here is the author’s self introduction for you:

Who, and What, is the Bitter Pill?

I’m the Bitter Pill, an ordinary scrivener who’s dealt with all kinds of crap from the worst people and finally found a voice to speak out. I’m a remedy for an ever-increasing tide of social BS from silly people who manipulate and exploit others for power.

I welcome any viable challenge offered to what I write, to any facts-based valid argument showing I’m biased or just plain wrong. No other comers will even get to step into the ring. No, so-called “alternative facts” will not even be entertained, not worth my time. Failing valid, accurate critique, readers can take these missives as yr. humble svt’s personal experiences, observations, and conclusions.
I’m a great admirer of those figures like Socrates and Chanakya with the courage to call things as they are, who spoke truth to power at great risk of personal danger.

Suicidal? Possibly, but the pursuit of truth has always been dangerous to those given to abuse their ill-gotten power!

Editorial Fridays by Troy David Loy 15.12.17 The Princess and the Wood

The Princess sat in the Parliament of the Bright Court, as the Fey conferred on the best way to end their war with the Unseelie Court of Netherhill. The meeting had gone on for over an hour.

The dryad had found a gemstone from the beggar’s box, glittering with an evil light, tucked away in the sleeve of the Princess’s blouse. That was how the Fey knew she was there before rescuing her from the Land Kelpie. Its light had died, the stone now useless to finding her. Only sight or other ordinary senses could pick up her presence. The Princess politely refused all offers of food or drink, as she knew something of Faerie, and was aware that she would be bound to this land forever by partaking of sustenance, never to return to the mortal world.

Parliament was waiting for the High Queen Andromeda to attend and preside over the meeting, when a visibly flustered gnome, who announced,“The High Queen has been taken from us by trickery! She is gone from her chambers and cannot be found!” The wizened gnome seemed shaken, his voluminous beard reaching nearly to his knees, his spectacles slightly askew, and his belt was loaded with a collection of tools and instruments that had clearly seen better days. His blue felt cap topped his balding head. He looked as though he was a survivor of one too many incidences of exploding or malfunctioning widgets in some out of the way laboratory.

“I will go to find her.” The Princess volunteered. “As the only mortal in this room, and with the gem removed, the Unseelie will be unable to find me by enchantment or charm.” Parliament was silent momentarily, then a faun about two rows of seats to the left of her said,“If you do this, we shall be in your debt, human.” “We will help you get there!” Piped a group of kobolds, their high-pitched voices almost comical, though the Princess refrained from laughing or otherwise showing amusement.

“Let’s do this then. There’s no telling what those fiends are doing to her while she’s in their hands!” The gnome had gathered his wits, and now looked much more collected than a moment ago. “I have just the means of getting us there! Tell me, O Princess, have you ever travelled by airship before?”

Editorial Fridays by Troy David Loy 8.12.17 The Zoomies

Eccles ran through the house like a mad-cat, jellybean toes on all four paws moving almost too quickly to gain traction on the rugs and wood finishing of the floor. Ricky was nearly upon him, in the dark of the late night.

Ricky’s greater bulk and longer stride affording more speed than Eccles as the two sped on a frenzied chase through the house. The patter-patter-patter of cat feet would have been too loud if not for the white noise of the fans and air conditioner going for both cooling the house and letting the humans sleep in peace.

There!

Eccles spied his favorite toy, a motorized plastic ball with a fake weasel tail attached. Grabbed it! Eccles caught it in his mouth, as Ricky’s mass and momentum made him slide on the hallway rug, moving it out of place and crumpled as the much bigger cat narrowly avoided running into a wall and waking the humans with a muffled Thump!

Eccles took his prize into his human’s room, jumping up onto the bedding and placing the weasel-ball down while Ricky collected his dignity, joining the human and Eccles on the warm sheets and fluffy pillows as the night wore into early morning.

A suspicious glance from a half-conscious human eye spied the pair as they settled down from the zoomies before all three slept.
