The moment cut his word in half, flickered lights before his eyes, then shut it all down with a deep dark absence of color so grim it was difficult to put word on.   Music in Book 3, Chapter 18:   Cullah - Please Bring Me Shelter (CC BY-SA 4.0) Marcos H.

Book 3, Chapter 16: What He Has Left Behind
Be forewarned, I can still taste the ferment on my teeth. Conjecture and abstract thought do not, admittedly, serve much purpose in a guide to the mysterious world you and I now inhabit, yet I would submit that you can cut as deep as you like as long as your implement remains sharp.   Music in Book 3, Chapter 16:   Cullah - Please Bring Me Shelter (CC BY-SA 4.0) Allen Masterton - Berceus Scott Holmes - Abandoned City (CC BY 4.0) Scott Holmes - Vasky Skyline (CC BY 4.0) Blue Dot Sessions - Nervous Whisp (CC BY-NC 4.0) Allen Masterton - Iridian Blue Dot Sessions - Cobweb Transit (CC BY-NC 4.0) Blue Dot Sessions - Stillness (CC BY-NC 4.0) Crowander - Backward (CC BY-NC 4.0) Origamibiro - Flicker (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 US) Crowander - Above Us (CC BY-NC 4.0)

Book 3, Chapter 13: The Danger We Suspect
In a sun dappled stretch of the Scar, endless as it had always been, a young woman found herself near done with what the dust had to offer.  So goes folk in younger years—just aged enough to know and appreciate the finer and subsequent illuminations of ferment—yet still damn fool enough to know nothing else of nothing else.   Music in Book 3, Chapter Thirteen: ​Cullah - Please Bring Me Shelter (CC BY-SA 4.0)​HarryHaaren - Acoustic Ambient (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0) ambient-samurai - Scene Of Sunshine Filtering Through Foliage (CC BY 3.0) Zhalih - Firefly (CC BY-SA 3.0) Blue Dot Sessions - An Accumulation (CC BY-NC 4.0) ​Blue Dot Sessions - Diagram K (CC BY-SA 4.0) Guerrics - the new season (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0) ​Scott Holmes - Black Jack (CC BY 4.0) ​Finn Perring - Ascension (Above The City) (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0)

The diner was far enough away from work, but nothing felt far enough when there was going to be talk of confidential things.  Things some argue better left unexplained, not discussed, kept away from deeper thought—weird things.   Music in Book 3, Chapter Twelve: Cullah - Please Bring Me Shelter (CC BY-SA 4.0) Podington Bear - Undersea Garden (CC BY-NC 3.0) Blue Dot Sessions - Periodicals (CC BY-NC 4.0) Sergey Cheremisinov - The Loneliness (CC BY-NC 4.0) David Szesztay - Cascet (CC BY-NC 3.0) Blue Dot Sessions - Cobweb Transit (CC BY-NC 4.0) Blue Dot Sessions - Surly Bonds (CC BY-NC 4.0) Blue Dot Sessions - Bliste (CC BY-NC 4.0) Blue Dot Sessions - Turning (CC BY-NC 4.0) Nic Bommarito - Apace (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0) Podington Bear - Submerging Green (CC BY-NC 3.0)

Book 3, Chapter 11: Six More Things To Do
Knucklebones stepped one leathery bare foot into the plastic pool, bright and faded colors both rippling under the liquid. Filth bloomed in arcs from his foot, dirt and barren clouding the chemicals. He wrinkled an ancient looking triangle that sat center on his face, and enshrouded by the giant round disc his hat made, and Knucklebones inhaled deeply.   Music in Tincture: Book 3, Chapter Eleven: ​Cullah – Please Bring Me Shelter (CC BY-SA 4.0) Podington Bear – Submerging Blue-Black (CC BY-NC 3.0)Blue Dot Sessions – Floor Shine (CC BY-NC 4.0) Blue Dot Sessions – Slow Slow Sky (CC BY-NC 4.0) David Szesztay – First Step Inside (CC BY-NC 3.0) David Szesztay – Creepy Atmo (CC BY-NC 3.0) David Szesztay – Creepy Sirens (CC BY-NC 3.0) Podington Bear – Smolder (CC BY-NC 3.0) BOPD – New England Air (CC BY-NC 3.0) Origamibiro – Flicker (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 US) Genghis Attenborough – Clandon Chime (CC BY-NC 3.0) David Szesztay – Backward (CC BY-NC 3.0) Sergey Cheremisinov – Labyrinth (CC BY-4.0) Dexter Britain – Sleepless Nights (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0)

Book 3, Chapter 10: How Those Words Fall On Us
King’s office was surprisingly empty for a man of his resources. There was no special reason for it—he was in charge of it all, the whole enterprise, but cared little for the more obvious of comforts or distraction.   Music in Tincture: Book 3, Chapter Ten: ​Cullah – Please Bring Me Shelter (CC BY-SA 4.0) David Szesztay – Underwater (CC BY-SA 3.0) Scott Holmes – Something In The Distance (CC BY-NC 4.0) Podington Bear – Three Colors (CC BY-NC 3.0) VYVCH – Get Well (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0) Origamibiro – Flicker (CC BY-NC-SA 3.0 US) Genghis Attenborough – Clandon Chime (CC BY-NC 3.0) Blue Dot Sessions – More Weather (CC BY-SA 4.0) Dexter Britain – Dance For One (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0) Will Bangs – Cold Feet (CC BY-NC 3.0) Blue Dot Sessions – An Accumulation (CC BY-NC 4.0) Sacred Harp Signers of Cork – Drone: 274t The Golden Harp (CC BY-NC 3.0)
