From Fallcoast

That Which Is...

xxxxxIn the late 70's, the punk scene was just beginning to blossom. Certainly, Fallcoast had its own followers of the fresh genre. One had to travel to Boston or further to see the big bands, but if you didn't mind screeching feedback and cramped places, there was music to be found within the 'coast itself. One such band was an all-grrl outfit fronted by Denali Grey. They had plans to open for a larger band and even hit CBGBs... except Denali was lost overboard during a party on a yacht in the Fallcoast harbor and presumed drowned and lost. In truth, she was taken by Four Winds, Hundred Names.

xxxxxFive years ago, a woman with the same name took up with the local artists. None remember the small band (and those that would have likely had enough drugs and liquor since to forget). A sort of 'den mother' to a combination studio and apartments in a warehouse not far from the seaside, she has, until recent days, largely kept to herself save for the rare gallery showing. Her paintings tend to be dark, twisted, and reviews often speak of the uncomfortable feelings viewers are left with. She has been known, too, to put on the rare solo show as a singer. Never recorded. Always live.

xxxxxThe Lost know her to be a mermaid (if albeit not of the pretty variety, but much more akin to something of the deep) of the Autumn Court who escaped just a handful of years ago and went through a fairly intensive, self-driven therapeutic cycle of painting... which led into her current career. She's starting to branch out and get to know other Lost, but she's also fallen back into old, drug-seeking habits.

Hooks and Potential
  • Autumn Court
    A Magi of the Gilded Thorn and Briar Ranger hopeful, 'Nali seeks to understand and utilize the Hedge.
  • Crime
    Denali is a bit of an addict. Maybe you've partaken with her or sold to her.
  • Musician
    If it's a local, small show, she can oft be seen. And every once in a rare while, they convince her to perform...
  • Painter
    Her art is made with the goals of the Autumn court in mind, but she does take commissions from time to time. See work on the Art page.

Curiouser and curiouser.
Well and beyond the Mask. There is somewhat more. Someone I can trust. Someone who I can be honest with and trust they will be honest in return.
I did not want to remember. I did not want to know. Now I do and the nights are even darker.
She's quiet, but in a way almost unsettling rather than shy. I think she did something to help me at the Walk. I'll have to thank her someday. Somehow.
Is it the kinship of water or somewhat else? I do call her friend, but I wonder what she calls me.
I had no desire to remember the other side. Battlefields or not. I like you, but I fear what may come.
You don't try to change me. You accept me, even the parts that are broken. Thank you.

xxxxx“There's a race of men that don't fit in, A race that can't sit still; So they break the hearts of kith and kin, And they roam the world at will. They range the field and rove the flood, And they climb the mountain's crest; Their's is the curse of the gypsy blood, And they don't know how to rest.”
-Robert W. Service

xxxxx “I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

xxxxx “I have no fear of making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own.”

I Wanna Get Better - Bleachers

And I miss the days of a life still permanent
Mourn the years before I got carried away
So now I'm staring at the interstate screaming at myself,
"Hey, I wanna get better!"

Deep Silent Complete - Nightwish

Deep silent complete
Black velvet sea
The sirens are calling for me
Saved my soul thinking, "This song's a lie"
Sand on the shore is so dry

Before I Sleep - Joy Williams

I got miles and miles to go before I sleep
Before I can feel anything, before I'm free
I got miles and miles to go before I sleep

Much appreciation to Thorian for the template!
