Elara Semi-Realism

Invisible Window Sill

This one is from my other, older story: Dark Meridian! (For your convenience and sanity, only the heavily MST’d version is available for viewing.) In its first incarnation, one third of the characters were of the type inclined to stare moodily out of windows, while another third were the sort who would walk up quietly behind them and inquire after their emotional well-being.

The last third was there to antagonize the first two so that they could spend some time hurling magic around instead of brooding.
