He stares across the room at her inquisitively as she toys with the porcelain sculpture at the end of her choker. He notices the gold in her necklace brings out the sparkle in her eyes while she waits for her favorite drink ‘The Rattlesnake’.

…For Old Time Sake

Hi Everyone,

Thinking of the Ishan Project last year, I wanted to share something with you for old time sake 😛

Untitled
THE BIRDS, THE SOWER AND THE DISTURBING ALGORITHM
The Hummingbirds drop her from a high vantage point in order for her tendrils to be able to  split through the atmosphere and dense layers of radioactive waves referred to as the Algorithm. As she transitions downward, she feels the wavelength’s radiation trying to attach itself to her small frame.  It begins to suck at her skin like tiny leeches.
Many of the flowers that feed remained in bloom despite Chûndra’s disturbance, but now it’s become apparent she’s using a new deterrent. This is the wavelength we’ve identified.  The Birds’ refer to it as ‘The Disturbing Algorithm.’ It’s effects settle like a dense fog over an individual’s psyche. Impressing into one’s mind the damaging state of inactivity.  Too many victims have already fallen prey to it’s effects. And that’s why it was necessary for us to take counter action. After further discussion we all agreed The Sower would be used to combat this new weapon.
As she lowers in her descent, she hears a loud flapping somewhere in the distance. This flapping is followed by a hysterical laughter that can only originate from Cherry. It’s obvious that The BirdFace Crew has pinpointed her location. Cherry begins to beat his wings harder now that he’s found her. This cannot be good.
