So far, 'Fogworld vol. 2: City Limits' is 71,298 words spread out across 17 chapters. Please enjoy this excerpt from a newly-finished chapter.

"Truth is, ain’t no child can earn the type of approval he wants from his parents. Seen people spend their whole lives seeking it. Damn shame. Sometimes parents’re proud of you, and sometimes they say so. Other times they’re ashamed of you, and they will damn sure tell you as much. End of the day, though, they got you beat by 20, 30 years, and the sum total of how you do right by your parents ranges from disappointing them to not disappointing them. Not disappointin’s the best you can hope for."

Old inspiration, from jonny: “I always really dug this excerpt from Jack Kerouac as read by Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler. It’s an exercise in paradigms. Jack goes into a bakery his friends run and he’s amazed by all these magical concoctions and exotic chocolates and nuts and fancy artisanal coffee cakes, the way the kids in Willy Wonka are with the candy. And meanwhile his friends are rolling their eyes and ignoring him because they’re working on something else and can’t be bothered with day-old pastries or imperfectly-cut whatevers, masterpieces though they are. Turn it up to hear Tyler doing blues a cappella behind his own reading. ❤️”

What do you folks think about this passage from the chapter jonny's working on this month for 'City Limits?'

Greg Davis, Mayor of Triton, sat behind his desk in silence. A sharp headache poked at his brain somewhere behind his left eye. He read the debriefing from the skirmish his city had fought in New York against Sao. Body counts, both military and civilian, were followed by statistics of the wounded and the shell-shocked and those displaced from their homes. He read estimations of remaining munitions, gallons of water used, fire damage, structural damage, ruined crops, ruined ballistae, ruined lives. He breathed deeply, angrily, through his nose. It occurred to Davis that if anyone were to hear him breathing without seeing him, they might think he was in a deep sleep.

'A deep sleep,' he thought. The concept mocked him. In the three days since the engagement, he hadn’t gotten four hours of sleep per night. The visages of his city burning, bodies half-buried in rubble, blood filling the grout of the cobblestone walkways, children dashing headlong into flames and dousing them with buckets of water as though fully accustomed to lives of warfare - all seared into his brain and chased rest from him. When he closed his weathered eyes, he did so in vain. Always awaiting him behind his heavy lids was the terrible moment in which the large-caliber bullets from the Sao soldier’s minigun ripped straight through the bodies of Triton soldiers – men and women who had, just seconds before, sought to infiltrate the rogue colossus via ropeway under Davis’s orders. They were targets in some eldritch carnival shooting range from the history books, every combatant perforated with bullets that made dull “thup” sounds that haunted his memory, every combatant sent to meet his or her maker, and Davis couldn’t shake the fact that, again, all was done by his command. 'A deep sleep,' he thought once more. He snorted in contempt.
