Talos Aquinas | July 21, 2011

The Confession   Wisdom, like Muad’Dib and Shai-Hulud, was born in the desert. —Korba the Panegyrist   I remember the days when everything was simpler.  We Fremen used dew collectors to catch water, we hunted Harkonnen patrols, sayyadinas would bless the Water of Life … we still had the desert!  You claim to know us [...]

THE LITANY A bell chimes. The room was large. High ceilings. Narrow vaulted windows. Glow-globes suspended in mid-air cast a low amber light across the stone walls. Hooded figures in brown robes began to arrive, sitting here and there on tiered steps that emanated from a lower central platform. The figures sat patiently, waiting. They [...]

William, Vladimir needs to free up some assets. I’ve said I will support him but also mentioned that you might be able to assist. As far as we can tell it represents an excellent investment. I passed the details to EB. —Note found in the Stilfleet Citadel   “He’s not the first man to predict [...]

A cool breeze ruffled black hair. Double doors slammed back, scattering the birds and disrupting the stillness of the moment. A younger man stormed [...]

Lampadas This building was all function. Not to say that it wasn’t aesthetically pleasing, for that was a function as well, but there were no extraneous stylings or fripperies. Clear walls in this section of the Academe allowed those passing through the corridor to take notice of the gardens beyond. A gentle artificial breeze carried [...]

“It is a time of waiting. The boy who would be the Lisan-al-Gaib lies between worlds. He took command of Shai-Hulud, and the Desert War against all Fremen enemies. And now, in the third year of that war, he has taken the Water of Life. Because he did not die outright, hope has been given [...]

The Hawk of the Prescient Man Flew over the Kingdom of Sand, But when the moon sunk too low He knew that time would not slow, And child did amend what Father began. —The Oral History There were many nights when Leto would absorb every detail of the desert into his being, but this evening [...]

A FIGHT FOR HONOUR Darkness. Pain. A stabbing pain. ‘What in the hell did they hit me with and why am I still alive?’ Kavar asked himself. And yes he knew he was alive, after all, death wouldn’t hurt this bad. ‘Could it?’ He tried to sit up but suddenly the pain in his head [...]

SMUGGLERS LAMENT “Hurry with that last load!” The sand scoured voice of the smuggler Kuthrut cut through the bustle of the encampment that had been hollowed out of a rocky uplift near the False Wall-W. “The bloody sun is going be upon us soon!” Men grunted as they moved the plas sled deeper into the [...]
