Thanks to a donation from Anthony & Shirley Barrette, "The Whip of His Own Remorse" is now complete.  Read about Stylet's crushing discovery of what his precious berettaflies have been up to.

This unlocks the next poem in the Berettaflies thread, "The Inner Transition," which can be posted as soon as it gets sponsored.  That will feature Stylet approaching Valor's Widow.

Poem: "The Source of Pain"

[personal profile] ysabetwordsmith
This poem was written outside the regular prompt calls and fills the "I'm on Fire" square in my 2-1-17 Love Songs card for the Valentines Bingo fest. It has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Officer Pink thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

WARNING: This poem contains intense material that many readers may find disturbing. It also contains a hefty serving of poetic justice. Highlight to read the more detailed warnings, some of which are spoilers. There is mad science, Carl Bernhardt is always a warning, graphic description of medical torture and experimentation on sapient people, centaurs produced by mad science, a distorted response that could be learned helplessness or Stockholm syndrome, references to sapient trafficking and sexual exploitation, graphic description of injuries, messy medical details, unethical employees, and other challenges. If these are touchy topics for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before deciding whether this is something you want to read. It does advance the plot a bit, but a lot of the general trajectory is already established, so it's only a minor gap if you choose to skip this one.

"I spent about 10 minutes in the pub last night obsessed with the opening of THE WILD STORM by Ellis/Davis-Hunt. The main cover. Lots to unpack, but the element I most admire is the explicit 1-24, showing the length of series. Immediately we have context, meaning, shape and all linking to the cool formalism - as in, chilled. The Watchmen of it.

"And then the first page, which is instant classic as far as I'm concerned. Once again, this is a novel opening, about control and confidence. 9 panel is murderously hard, and - if I had to generalise - artists generally hate it. Davis-Hunt is making it sing here. Tom King with his various collaborators have been bringing it back to centre stage in comics, recently. THE WILD STORM is a similar response to the present over-tired elements in the super-hero mainstream. Let us try control. Let us try comics.

"[...] Generally speaking, the problem facing any writer of superhero comics is finding a way to make this genre feel novel in 2017. I think The Wild Storm nails in." - Kieron Gillen

Posted this last year but I figured with the film coming out tomorrow (the trailer can be viewed here) it might be worth another look.
