Time Event
Welcome to the Brane of the Jota
So, I figure that after a brief flurry of posts in which I disgorge three or four thoughts currently floating around in my head, this will drop off quickly to a post every week or two, then vanish entirely after a couple months. Then maybe I'll try to do a comeback at some point a year from now, but that'll last less than a month, and then I'll sporadically promise I'll post more stuff (and that I've even got stuff I'm planning to post, but haven't gotten to around to yet), without ever writing here again.

Y'know, standard operating procedure. In any case, don't expect polished prose or anything like that. This is just a spot for random ideas that have drifted through my brain, that I don't want to spend the time or effort to fix up into something worthwhile, but don't want to just throw away either.
Alchemy, Part 1
Long have alchemists been familiar with the four fundamental elements that make up our world. The first is the element of the leaf. Its color is green, and it is attuned to the wind and the sky. Its planet is Mercury. The second is the element of blood. Its color is crimson, and this element finds its home in fire and beasts. Mars is the patron of the carnal element. Third is the element of grain. It is the element which supports life. The ancients associated this element with the Moon, but we now recognize that it belongs to the domain of Venus. The color of grain is amber. The final element is the element of milk. It is represented as blue, and it is attuned with the Moon, for it comprises the Moon.
