"Do it because I said so, Gary."

After Gary, an estranged and grizzled grandfather to fifteen grandchildren (possibly more), is pressured onto various social media sites by his daughter, Cindy, in order to keep him from "becoming too... disassociated". A few pictures of scenic Floridian beaches and posts complaining about the absurdity of modern day "Feminazis" later, he'd become very adjusted to the new social climate. In fact, he'd become quite passionate, taking photography  and writing mini essays and rants as a hobby and a part of daily life. Just as he'd become accustomed to his new hobby, he'd become very familiar with internet hate. Gary was constantly being bombarded with resentful direct messages touching on, no, pounding on the old man's posts for his very harsh and old fashioned perception of the world. It was only by his nature, while he wasn't blatantly racist (abandoning that brand of thinking when his only daughter married a young Black man, and his second oldest son married a Chinese woman while overseas with the Army. Then, after discovering that they were just as competent and human as any other white man, he grew to love them as he would love anyone of his own race.), he did practice a certain degree of "practical sexism", classism, a proneness to hypocrisy ( a byproduct of his old age),and a certain degree of derision for the youth, making him into a magnet for hate. But he didn't mind, he found a sort of comfort in his waning years to share his experiences and thoughts with his followers. The way he saw it, for every hater he had, there was five people who genuinely found his content insightful. But when a mysterious internet personality direct messages Gary, bringing up a long since forgotten secret of Gary's, the mystery sender puts Gary to the test to see how truly desperate he is to keep his secret under wraps.

*I will halt the production of new chapters for a while.. School y'know... jajajaja, im not Spanish. New chapters by the end of the month, and more corrections eventually. I hit a bit of a road block ni terms of ideas and how to progress, but over the last few days I have been able to craft some new ones, but my school work is making it hard to implement them. More content from me in a while, till then, keep doing you.*

An elder poet living out the rest of his days in his village goes in a flurry when a strange letter comes into his possession. Upon reading its contents he immediately sets out of his village to the lost city of Adafus. He quests on this journey to reinvigorate the people of the towns struck by the primordial entity known as the Lich. With the seal containing this depraved deity weakened, it is his task to reseal it to prevent the downfall of his country and eventually the world. Join him on his long trek through the country as he collects and shares his poetry to give the people hope and strength to resist the influence of the Lich.

*From the author*
