Rohan Quine, “The Platinum Raven” – chapter 25 “Electric aliveness and happiness, remembered” – second sample – video
But oh, how desperately sad and desolate the Chocolate Raven is to have been forced back down into such quotidian drudgery, when she knows that in reality there’s ALL THAT, living up there in the mountains!… Oh, why couldn’t she just live forever in that tower of wonders?
Not that she’d pretend it was the most reassuring or relaxing of places, up there. There were nightmarish elements in it, for sure, and even its wildest heights of beauty had something of the colour and poison of a nightmare somewhere beneath their surface.
But how electrically alive and happy she was, nonetheless, for as long as she was up there in that tower on the rock-slopes!
