Act I – Signature xxi – Glass Facades.

I – xxi – (xwix) – Iphgene Heppleweis drew the . . . real victory lap.


Iphgene Heppleweis drew the . . . real victory lap (2.27 KB).

                A Time & A Place (Setting): FRANCE. The Failsafe Invitational.

                Primary (active, subject) Ch: Iphgene Heppleweis.

                Secondary (inactive, object) Ch: None.

                Tertiary (referenced, en passant) Ch: Other skaters: Ivanovna, Za’at.

                Purpose: Iphgene races through Mussorvsky’s Pictures to finish her number in time to rescue her child.

                Method (narrative, process, genre): Farce, movement.

                Relevance/Transition: Strict temporal continuity, although this may be aligned with the chichi restoration activities of Aira Phoebus . . .

 Failsafe Invitational     

Circa October 2000. Iphgene travels to France to participate in the skating tournament. She is contacted by kidnappers. She rushes through her program much to the dismay of the audience.

 The entire sketch is disturbingly callous, although Iphgene’s efforts to throw the match in hopes of saving her daughter, and the disappointed reaction of the skating community, are vaguely amusing.

I – xxi – (xviii) – Now his sadly eager . . . blazers of vermillion.


Now his sadly eager . . . blazers of vermillion (2.66 KB).

             Narrator: The four chichi restorations might conceivably be spaced further apart into subsequent chapters.

                A Time & A Place (Setting): The trial of Fr. Anselm.

                Primary (active, subject) Ch: Fr. Anselm.

                Secondary (inactive, object) Ch: Aira Phoebus.

                Tertiary (referenced, en passant) Ch: Piero; the neuro-Niceans.

                Purpose: During consultation with the defence, Fr. Anselm relates his visions pertaining to the failed restoration of the chichi.

                Method (narrative, process, genre): Classicist parody.

                Relevance/Transition: Curiously, the sketch develops the glimpse of the 13th century afforded at Mount Period (see Act III, Signature v) . . .

 We thought we were . . . on this basis he was detained.          

Circa August 2003. inter-regnum Ambassador remarks upon Cartesian changes to the universe; segue to Frank as the heat closes in.

 Unspecified persons [2007 - reassignments specified below] confess their fear of an unspecified “it,” resulting in mismanagement and a man being sued “of all he can possibly have.” Isochronal, a reference to time stoppage (e.g. isothermal), impact on real relativity. A mention of “pansflytritten” is the quest of the Rat with the Horns (Ch. XI – Although known that he . . . will instruct him) to recover Pan’s flute (Ch. II – Romanian rhap . . . a failure to commune . . . shocked by irrelevance), dropped during the loss of gravity, as an antidote to the Nicean note, in which “how fazed were the monads complicit.” Some of the Niceans attempt to research solutions for restoring the Earth’s gravity. The Ambassador an An Indocile [Fr. Anselm]“remarked ambient strange and dexterous clangor sial horologinousity caused rifts anew. Innate plumb for during did not wear ubiquitous fennel nor dallied force claim to many accounts cowled . . . everything the guildmaster stood for had flunked a litmus serving as a bell.”

the neuro-Niceans – cause and effect   

Circa April 2001. Combed blue books for ramblings applicable to understanding dark angles who challenge Aurora’s hand-maiden as she attempts to correct an unimpedimential deviance, and begin melting into jelly beans.

 What am I trying to do here? I hoped to salvage some blue book material and realign it into an ethereal ethos. Shadow puppet promises they will foster a new and mighty race (Ch. V – . . . who are not going to . . . fluff my logos really). One of the sixths is referenced in Ch. X - And yet the individuals . . . almost wished he was watching convening a council on cerebral dyspepsia. Possibly this is the extention of that passage. A “prophet . . . (see also scholar) demonstrated sedulously that quaint antiquities below developed in escrow,” while “sods watched Phoebus manage hoarse chariots dressed in blazers of vermillion,” however the “last of the bright cruel ants . . . snared their design with a flood of drivel so knowing that the perquisite of station gave rare opportunity for logical fatuity.”

I – xxi – (xi) – Pursuant upon . . . the sighing sonorosity.

 Pursuant upon . . . the sighing sonorosity (3.87 KB).

             Narrator: TBD

                A Time & A Place (Setting): The indigo sphere.

                Primary (active, subject) Ch: Fjulsfut.

                Secondary (inactive, object) Ch: None.

                Tertiary (referenced, en passant) Ch: Various fauna, including time flies.

                Purpose: Early fjulsfut, grateful at ditching upon the indigo sphere, set up a survey party and question local fauna.

                Method (narrative, process, genre): Epic parody.

                Relevance/Transition: The fjulsfut are diverted toward a “netherer realm” . . .

 VIII – Pursuant upon esoteric . . . clues amidst the sighing sonorosity.

Circa July 2006. A pre-historic expedition of fjulsfut questions the flora and fauna of Earth.

Finally concluding the freefall begun earlier (I – xvi – (x) – As the fjulsfut expedition swerved . . . to set him aflame prematurely), an early fjulsfut expedition (II – x – (x) – Logan’s call to the . . . multitude fraught oscular) celebrate their landing, “ashily heaved out Aves in recondite servility . . . and conveyed their bedraggled emboucheres upon the thin yet plangent drumlins.” They hit the ground running (I – xxi – (xi) – Pursuant upon . . . the sighing sonorosity) and “unlimbered theodolites to descry local viscosities conducive of intelligible propriety . . . and soon fell into muted concourse with Linnean organisms capable of protracted aerobic suspension,” who “remarked [on] the expectation that their every step will elicit thereby armloads of nosegays . . . all stimuli, the sad fleas said ad nauseum, is derived through the progression of decay, and were you to just turn off the smoking lamp and relax assuredly a whole new weird consensus might reverberate throughout the known disco . . . the gnat buzzed back for a slaunch and added, seek my distinct cousin the time fly (II – vi – (xv) – Although one of the progenitors . . . of time flies) if you’re having fun yet.” The visitors “meandered toward scalloped regions, greatly resembling the Mirandan node (I – ii – (ii) – Somehow . . . would Miranda . . . fish for themselves), of coruscating terraces that seethed (they could see suns beyond the blue) in prismatic octagons.” A missing travel guide “left behind in the Inference Library, might have alerted their propinquity to a nether realm, yet fortified with integuments, they trekked into the backwash of an arguably flourescent sibilence, and with pointedly webcams strove for clues amidst the sighing sonorosity.” In other words, they’ve strayed into the realm of Snorggi on the eve of a major sneeze (I – xx – (wiX) – These Cocytus sneezes, fabulous . . . as a knob turned).

I – xxi – (xii) – Left behind . . . you may leave.

             Narrator: TBD

                A Time & A Place (Setting): A Platonic realm.

                Primary (active, subject) Ch: The lamplighter Anubis.

                Secondary (inactive, object) Ch: AHRIMAN.

                Tertiary (referenced, en passant) Ch: The neuro-Niceans; Ceres.

                Purpose: The neuro-Niceans extort Anubis’ blessing for their proto-orca, the genesis of AHRIMAN.

                Method (narrative, process, genre): Epic parody.

                Relevance/Transition: Anubis dares the neuro-Niceans to cross a bridge after taking precautions. . . .

v – After the . . . panoplius poplexity.

Circa November 2002 (revised April 2006). Journal entry adapted to neuro-Nicean proto-orca.

A journal entry in late 2002, citing an “extant orca” verbatim, was seized to frame the neuro-Niceans whom, after “expelling the vicious elf (I – xwix – (vi) – After these decibels wore off . . . resuming migration),” debut their proto-orca, originally designed to control salmon (I – xviii – (iv) – Unlike the versatile glimpses . . . retired from the scene), before the court of the lamplighter Anubis (I – xx – (x) – The Rat with the Horns) in late Act I. In his benediction, the lamplighter prophesies “he will leave his first love and flee upon her return . . . his second love would crumple his self respect and mapless, he will wonder lost . . . five, not four mentors, will destroy civilizations in the effort to correct him;” plotlines which should be verified for fulfillment.

. . . Portlandia . . . may leave.

Circa June 2003. Appalled at the plans of the neuro-Niceans, the lampman calls fire down upon his own head to thwart the neuro-Niceans and dares them to cross the bridge of the frozen tears. What is the role of Ceres, his ex-wife?

 The description of Desire’s self-restraint is uncharacteristic of the neuro-Niceans. Ceres, consort of the lampman, is identified by the latter, meaning she somehow should not be part of the neuro-Nicean expedition, which quizzes the lampman anxiously about the future of their humonculous (Ch. V – One raised a question . . . but they settled . . . into time). The lampman assures them that “he will rule,” with certain conditions: “AHRIMAN, replied the lamp lighter, roaming his wasted range, finding no more rest, pleasure, alacrity, necessity, guests, or tests left upon the earth, will rule, having conquered every thing, and will gyve under the ever dark dome, demanding that the light return. He will rule.” Whatever, the neuro-Niceans exclaim complacently, and “peel off,” little heeding the lampman’s final injunction.

I – xxi – (xwix) – As the mass dispersed . . . the judges to depart.


As the mass dispersed . . . the judges to depart (1.73 KB).

                 A Time & A Place (Setting): Southern France (pre- or post-inversion?)

                Primary (active, subject) Ch: The panel of five judges from Liechtenstein, Ruthenia, Russia, Ossian, and France.

                Secondary (inactive, object) Ch: Iphgene Heppleweis.

                Tertiary (referenced, en passant) Ch: Desdemona Chantal of Le Matin; the Persian (Xanthian) skater (Ba’a Za’at).

                Purpose: Oversight performed on Iphgene’s truncated lap at the early Failsafe round.

                Method (narrative, process, genre): Social satire.

                Relevance/Transition: The Failsafe sketches are consecutively temporal in nature, intermittently sprinkled with Aira’s effort to restore the chichi, and leave room for insertion of other themes. This sketch introduces Desdemona for her later fateful interview of the Ossian minister, Ahem. . . .

Failsafe Invitational     

Circa October 2000. Iphgene travels to France to participate in the skating tournament. She is contacted by kidnappers. She rushes through her program much to the dismay of the audience.

The entire sketch is disturbingly callous, although Iphgene’s efforts to throw the match in hopes of saving her daughter, and the disappointed reaction of the skating community, are vaguely amusing.

13-14, Left behind on the . . . experience, motivation, and intensity (3.04 KB).

             Narrator: TBD

                A Time & A Place (Setting): Miranda, one of the last remaining Nicean nodes.

                Primary (active, subject) Ch: Onno, a node-keeper.

                Secondary (inactive, object) Ch: None.

                Tertiary (referenced, en passant) Ch: Shadow puppet, Ceres, Tethys.

                Purpose: From the specific vantage point of Miranda, a discourse upon the origins of the Nicean races.

                Method (narrative, process, genre): Dialogue.

                Relevance/Transition: Leads back into the account of the neuro-Niceans.. . .

Unconvinced of the . . . pressing concert.                               

Circa July 2003. Mostly blank verse describing an ambiguous process.

Some incomplete blank verse is imported (from the superseded file Ch. I – A person of no interest . . . countdown from four . . .) to re-energize this sketch, featuring “a person of no interest . . . our platform . . . a foursquare noise . . . shard of soma toast . . . stale instigations perturbed . . . fire facet luau . . . a paler span ensued . . . even the sirens pitching in.” A fuller text appears with bureaucratic concepts, “injunctions . . . grievance . . .

v – Some axioms.

Circa May 2004 (revised April 2006). Journal entry adapted to Nicean proto-orca.

A sweep of my journals for weird entries yielded several, including the day of three axioms, cogitated to the tone of WWV: “drinking an entire pint of [trail mix] . . . is now a forgery of present idyll; [if you can't shout them down, put a W bumper sticker on their truck; enough words can always be found to get to the bottom of the page]. The last two are non-Menckianly paraphrased, with no regard for posterity. These “enamel rules” are useful in filling out an ethereal dialog (I – xxi – (xii) – Left behind . . . you may leave) between Onno (I – ii – (ii) – Somehow ontologically . . . ephemeral crawlspace), a bobbin in charge of the last viable node, and Niobe (III – iii – (xv) – You might now have an idea . . . convoked in), mother of Thebes. They cite, non-successfully, the fate of the neuro-Niceans (I – xxiii – (xviii) – Spilt without preamble . . . we’re no longer dead) to warn a prehistoric fjulsfut expedition (I – xvi – (x) – As the fjulsfut expedition swerved . . . to set him aflame prematurely) of the perils of the indigo sphere.

 I – xxi – (xviii) – Inspector Lemert had . . . once known and how.

 Inspector Lemert had . . . once known and how (7.47 KB).

             Narrator: TBD

                A Time & A Place (Setting): The Global Village.

                Primary (active, subject) Ch: Inspector Lemert.

                Secondary (inactive, object) Ch: Rex Ampersand.

                Tertiary (referenced, en passant) Ch: Sergei, Alcuin, Jasmine, Constancia, Noone.

                Purpose: Albeit in forced narrative, Inspector Lemert reaches conclusions about inter-regnum wishram, the breaking of the chichi, and the distortions of time occasioned by the inversion of the universe.

                Method (narrative, process, genre): Detective parody.

                Relevance/Transition: Herein Inspector Lemert launches his final investigation that closes Act I . . .

 They . . . at once knew and how.                                                         

Circa September 2003. Several characters attempt to cope in the aftermath of the Earth stoppage (note that at some point the Niceans manage to restore “a glare of revolution”, stabilizing things to some degree).

Circa December 2004. After time stops, many hidden agendas, such as amending the constitution, are freed to their pernicuous course.

[2007 - This panoramic sketch, playing over the motivations of several characters, is assigned as the culmination of Inspector Lemert's investigation.] Instantly there’s a dual claim on duplicate text between Sergei here, and the enthalpist in Ch. XI – One morning the enthalpist . . . began a review of their pretexts. “Cavernous warehouses daunted him not; he stalked the material canyons with savage persistence . . . and moreover served best who never underslept?” Awarded to the latter six hours ago. Time as a “snatch” is mediated by “bitter reviewers . . . lacking the distinctly sapient community necessary to draw an uncertain character forth.” The entire passage reeks not only of missing characters, yet also missing subjects, in which incidental pronouns carry the burden of two or more participle clauses. “Aira’s overarched aim (Ch. II – An again refused . . . the fringe of after action),” is referenced as rerouted by “specific substrata,” an alibi foisting blame upon the Niceans’ sial wave (Ch. V - A formation of a litmus . . . was that all time fell still) for breaking the chichi. The minister of transport, Alcuin, is required to scavenge, anointing the monads to reinvent “a disparately sufficient laity toward consequent truths in minutely aerated respites.” Ampersand’s part in the rapture, “a groat lofted so weakly that . . . all that were left . . . were predictable of states of kinesthesia.” His associate Lothar having been incarcerated, at Rex’s own behest (Ch. V – Little but ill . . . resumed the negotiation), the latter is left “to stave the ensuing trend of an endemic nascent, and with earlier deposits of types (Ch. IX - Several winks . . . with mixed emotion; Ch. X - While Binaca . . . on Tangent Road) evaporative,” Rex leveraged thereby often to mark time.” He has thrown a “tiara” at the polychromatic serpent, and the resultant “blending feats azurely browed the glimpse afforded in the odd node entrusted onto” Alcuin, who tells the obliging monads to “adopt a snide . . . style,” and “their ingenuous provision occluded, surfing the overly embraced and fabled affinitive seasonal energies.” Meanwhile Constancia (Ch. X - Some days collected . . . the fifteenth snooze alarm) confronts Sergei behind his “hiero sandwich board,” who tells her “I have always loved the walls separating me from reality.” The distortion of time evinced in the necessary rapidity to pronounce “Mississippi,” Sergei minds the “touting pilgrimages recouped,” and though blamed for the “neglectful Pyrex victory accepted as monadically induced,” also notes the continuing work upon the 13th century spire (Ch. VII – Siege and trial), which the agnomen (Ch. X – How is she . . . erratic loss of our plunge) calls “a beastly microcosm.” Still he is seized with “anoxic” hopelessness, Noone’s “insistence upon primitive quarantine . . . that stressed taking dollops of denurturable flax . . . to forestall rising antigenic contra indications,” notwithstanding, and reads insight from the fine print enabling him to distill “the outlandish colloquy of . . . notably spurious philanstereoists (sic).” Sergei, in return for yielding the text paraphrased above, is credited with exposing the “hyperborean whim . . . considerably taboo pertaining to the siting of unnatural precedents.” Despite this Ampersand resolves that “a peculiar article might be reversed in favor of an inclusive eclectic polity of egregious primrose, while oedipally infrequent pretexts flouted those nearby,” and “this surely encomium convened . . . from whence etiologically acrobatic troikas whipped the leaves into selecting the anachronistic archons capable of withstanding this flux of revisionism.” A counter-movement, “in a stage of laterality group-thought its way toward an assiduous desire to unset . . . those parochials who . . . foisted their previsionist agenda.” Meanwhile, the “spin trials vapidly ingressed again in teal vapor,” and Sergei, preparing to attend the Reject Fair (Ch. VI – There were many . . . trusting in what) “held fast to his achievements, bottling them in anticipation of a dorkier day.” Sergei is “determined to Noone’s fair-headed boy . . . unsurpassed in his predilection for sniffing out accountable property (yet soon he will be charged by AHRIMAN to fire Noone),” yet in his travels, he stumbles into a council (inter-regnum political sketches (Ch. V – Beware Universal Discord; Ch. IX – revised inter-regnum background; Ch. V – had I only a left hand writing would face the unknown), that “now tasked his recollect, wired hatless through variegate anabasis now to resume anew minute plans, that he had once known and how.” Temporally then this sketch occurs perhaps weeks after the Earth’s stoppage, in the latter stages of the rapture, and also shortly after the theological snipe hunt, though the ramifications of that (Ch. X - It achieved little early rethinking for . . . an effort to claim his pupil) are not yet known.
