Outrun the Scythe: A Tale of Daemons and Immortals

"I would outrun the scythe, glaring with failure.
It is a mere destiny I thought,
A threshold I had crossed before."

About, because I anticipate a lot of questions and concerns.

(A lot of this is still under construction, I'm so out of practice :unamused:)

    Chapter 0.0. No story can start without someone's end (lies!) Vega Ironstar's an old daemon who needs to go back home and reminisce on an old friend...

    Merry Christmas to all. Sadly my only gift is self-promotion. (Christmas cards did not come into play either, sigh!)

    Chapter 0.1. Come receive the gift of life and/or death, and hear the story of the woman who got both...

    Happy 2021! From the crew at Outrun the Scythe (okay just me and two chihuahuas) to you.

    Chapter 0.2. Sheila Drudge's newfound life ends up in the place she wanted it to be all along, and Barry wasn't lying about there being grandkids!

    Hey there! We're upping chapters to twice weekly now. Tuesday/Friday.


    03.jpg

    Chapter 0.3. Heathcliff talks a little about the issues plaguing his adolescence. Mostly stuff going on at the town gym.

    Cute chapter! I think Heathcliff is my favorite character now.

    @KNORear: thank you! I'm fond of him since he's been living in my head for a while, mostly without a personality (that's usually the first detail I want but hey)

    And I put a forum face to your WordPress presence which is pretty neat if you ask me.

    @InfraGreen I agree

    Happy Friday! Hoping it's better than, uh, a lot of the week (AND THAT'S ALL I'M SAYING)

    Chapter 0.4. Heathcliff, a brand spankin' new young adult now, gets a visit he's been told to fear. Another one-off character leaves us forever too.

    One of my favorite musicians took an indefinite break today, time to post gay daemons.

    Chapter 0.5. Heathcliff goes on a special journey to meet creatures he never thought he was related to...and some of his own family too.

    Happy Friday! A less daemonic chapter than the last, but if you're a sucker for road trips and Bayless spawn then you're in luck.

    Chapter 0.6. Sheila and Heathcliff go on forward with their west coast vacation anyways, but not without some discomfort, bar shenanigans being the least of them!

    Happy "get back to work" day in the US (yes I get MLK day off, state work has its perks) and Tuesday to the rest of ya.


    07.jpg

    Chapter 0.7. We catch up with Sheila a year later. Knowing that she's old, this teaser image of plainclothes Cara--servant of Death--doesn't really comfort me!

    Happy Friday, it's been a crummy week where I feel like sloppy sculpting Heathcliff. Or I wish!


    08.jpg

    Chapter 0.8. A year later we get back to Heathcliff's crushed dreams and new city folk friends, both the boring and the unusual.

    Last chapter for a bit! Nothing personal, I got a third dog and stuff.


    09.jpg

    Chapter 0.9. Sheila and Heathcliff start their new lives without each other but in tandem. Barry meddles with death itself again, which may be a worrying trend now.

    Finally reading this! Only on chapter 0.4 so far, but I'm loving Heathcliff and Sheila already. But you've got quite the cast of quirky daemons! And something tells me I'm about to meet more!
    Btw, I'm assuming Barry is from the previous Ironstar story? Will we be seeing more of him? I can't forget those lace-up boots easily! :D

    @ThePlumbob: Barry is a newcomer! Though he'd have blended into town long ago.
