Maelstrom again. I wrote an IC sestina back in early October, did some edits based on [ profile] oxfordgirl's feedback, and rewrote the final stanza again as it still wasn't clear. I think it's now more tightly written and holds together better, so am happy to show it to people.

This one might actually make it into uptime at some point, unlike another recent IC poem, so I'm happy to put it on a more public filter. Still, contains some in-character information and opinions about various heresies and their refutations, and is thus under a cut. :)

Ballgowning symptom #3: poetry.

By which I mean I wrote an IC villanelle. Filter very restricted; this hasn't gone to the intended recipient yet. Don't know how on earth I will be getting it there, but hey...

(Edited slightly following discussion in the comments.)

ETA, post Maelstrom event 1 2011: Intended recipient has (a) retired and (b) been sent the poem IC, so here it is for people in general. This may make it IC at some point, but at the moment I'm happy for people to see it OOC.

And the LORD said, "Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language, and this is only the beginning of what they will do. And nothing that they propose to do will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another's speech." So the LORD dispersed them from there over the face of all the earth, and they left off building the city.

Genesis 11:6-8, ESV

17:36 < oxfordgirl> ("....nothing that they propose to do will not be impossible for them. Come, let us go down and there confuse their language..."; and the TEACHER did say, "What the FUCK, man? I have been YEARS constructing that. Don't you fucking start."; and the MERCHANT did say, "Okay, no, look, multiple currencies were enough. Don't. Just don't."...)
17:37 < oxfordgirl> (and the SMITH was all like, "No, sorry, perfect community requires monolinguistic intercomprehensibility, also, I will CUT you," and the HUNTRESS was too busy giggling about mooncups to pay attention; and the WEAVER did slink therefore into a corner and say, "Sorry, guys, it was just an idea...")

Two bottles of Lucozade have enough caffeine to make my hands hurt, and keep me up way too late. Thus, instead of sleep, you get my notes for an essay about metaphysical reasons for a game system to have a single language (as opposed to the OOC reason of "it is far, far easier to physrep").

Notes. Should be relatively free of FOIP, unless 'Bluebottle was a linguist once upon a time' is FOIP. )
