I’m an only child. I’ve never really felt like anyone’s “big brother”. I was always just my dad’s son and student, and didn’t really have anyone else to call family. I don’t know how I would act with a sibling. I used to wonder what it would be like. I like to think we would get along, but I don’t really know, of course.Read More
This week on Shattered Gemstones! Jacob gives us a look into his brain as the group prepares to venture north, into the great unknown. Jacob has a plan for himself, and acts as if he knows his own destiny, but how will his companions come into play? Find out! ...On another note, as you probably noticed, updates are happening on Fridays from now on. Just so as not to clash with William's amazing Pokemon of the Week articles!Read More
I sit up, surveying my surroundings. I’ve been sleeping in one of the many big tents they have set up in town, to act as a home base. This morning, we get our first assignments. Last night, when signing in, I had asked to be sent as an explorer. The sooner I get out of here, the better.
Falling asleep last night was hell. The longer I laid there, the more I thought about Damian, and what we had said to each other. Damian was forced to see the harsh reality, that the person he thought I was never really existed at all. And he reacted by abandoning me. I can honestly say I didn’t see that coming, but I should have. I should have known this new information would be too much on him.Read More
Hey, boys and girls! It's your freindly neighborhood spider-Jay. I know it's been a few months since the end of Shattered Gemstones' first season, and you have fair reason to ask why. But fear not! For today I bring you something new. A little bit of build-up I'm calling Shattered September.
Shattered Gemstones season 2: A Vast and Fertile Wasteland will be starting on September 24th, but I don't intend to leave you all with nothing until then. Quite the contrary, in fact. Shattered September is a blog which will be updating daily to semi-daily with new concept art, previews, excerpts from chapters, my own thoughts on the series, and a new side-story each Monday. The blog can be found at http://shatteredseptember.tumblr.com/, so follow that baby on tumblr and keep checking back for new stuff, starting tomorrow! If you've enjoyed Shattered Gemstones thus far, I think this will be a great companion to the story. You can also follow me on twitter @IatosHaunted for news and my witty/disturbing stream of consiousness while writing.
That's all for now, folks! Feel free to give feedback on what you see throughout Shattered September, and look forward to the start of season 2 on the 24th. Until then, this is Jay, signing out!
