Chapter 18 - Judgment

Author's Note


One more late and late night chapter. This chapter doesn’t have as many words as “Windows to the soul” — 3.5k against the previous 5.1k—, but it still took me a lot longer than expected. I guess we’ve all learned that I suck at planning. Whenever I give a time frame from now on, add a few days just to be on the safe side. Fun fact: At the end of this chapter I’ve used the term sadistic, which is derived from Marquis de Sade, an 18th-century writer whose works are NOT for minors. It should be impossible for the word to appear here because medieval ages ended in the 15th century. And also because this is a fantasy work, in a world that isn’t Earth. I’m sure this isn’t the first time I use some term like this, only the first time I noticed. Another fun fact: We’re used to sadism meaning to take pleasure from causing pain on others. What some don’t know —At least I didn’t until recently— though, is that it’s sexual pleasure. These are just some random things you discover by exploring the etymology of words. Okay, maybe not fun facts, but interesting nonetheless. Things that make you think while in the shower or the toilet.
