Nadir, fig. 1

[Long Description: General Dai, newly exiled and with precious little to lose. He holds up a wine glass of god's blood and spills it over his eyes, turning the killing end of his sword on his former allies.

Or he would, anyway. Former mortal enemy and ex-con-turned-defacto-resistance-leader Len stands between him and his quarry. He holds his hands up to Dai, panicked out of his mind because they are hopelessly surrounded.]

always on the hunt for a little more time

a little series of Len character studies, sorta.

I like Len a whole lot. I joke that Asthaom is just one big metaphor for addiction recovery (and other types of recovery), but it's sincere, too. Len himself is an ex-thief, ex-con, ex-moral-junk-drawer who's whole life is dedicated to helping other people like him get on their feet.

And it's hard. There is a very real helplessness that comes from watching people you love do absolutely bonkers things that are out of their control and yours, and going through life not sure if they'll survive it all. Thankfully Asthaom is a piece of fiction and I can throw as many happy endings at it as I want at it. His friends put him through the wringer, but he gets to give them shit about it when they recover.
