The Curiously Stunted, Incomprehensibly Disjointed, Perfectly Inadequate Adventures of Nicholas Cornelius Holloway – Episode 99

She was the kind of person who persistently looked for the good. She’d point out the light at the end of the tunnel.

If you told her it was an oncoming train she’d smile and say, “Well then at least it will all be over soon.”

She was the sweet in bittersweet. The brown sugar in the butterscotch. The orange in the marmalade.

But it was reality she was after not roses. “Roses are coming,” she would say. “No tears in heaven,” she’d say. “But,” and this was the important part. “But that means this life is the only chance you have in all eternity to make a sacrifice that actually hurts.”

“To be,” she’d say, “heroic.”

He reminded himself of her words. He sucked on a butterscotch. And he got to work.

Last Chance for Deleted Ending

Long Version

The final Inadequate Adventure, Episode 99, will post tomorrow – Thursday, December 28, 2017.

An Adequate Epilogue will post on the final day of 2017. Because the epilogue would be spoiled if one were to read it accidentally without having been on the  journey, it will require a password. The password will be included in the final Preposterous Newsletter of 2017 which will be emailed on the same day: December 31, 2017.

Readers who subscribe to the Preposterous Newsletter after the 31st will gain immediate access to the epilogue, but will no longer receive the original deleted ending of Sir Thomas.

Short Version

In short, subscribe to Liam’s Preposterous Semioccasional Newsletter to read An Adequate Epilogue when it’s available on December 31st. Subscribe before the 31st to also read the deleted original ending to Sir Thomas the Hesitant and the Table of Less Valued Knights.
