Slow, slow times for Sanctuary. It's OK, here I am... we can rejoice now.
Titus, I like this concept... between you, Fractal and I, there seems to be an apocalyptic theme about Sanctuary lately, doesn't there?
First your use of "dost." Wrong use. The "st" is only applicable in a second-person tense.... such as, "Dost thou know of a blacksmith in this village?" or "Thou dost fight with great valour" or some such thing...

After that I praise your unusual style here... I like the language you've used, the way you've described states of history and present by use of landforms, from the perspective of someone capable of looking around and seeing everything from his vantage spot. I like the correlation of freedom and the primitive... it's similar to the point I was making in "Fish," so I'll just say, I'm glad you agree.
Bodies high is interesting, when you take into account the fact that this valley we're in is becoming less and less a valley because of the stacks of bodies being piled. Rather morbid, but very true... we work towards paradise but it brings only hatred and war, so what kind of paradise is this?
I doubt we are going to be able to move backwards in time, but I admire your ideals, Titus. Well done.
"Faith" means the will to avoid knowing what is true.
