Raven's Box o' Stuff

Not really stories, not really non-fiction...


Everything I Really Need to Know I Learned From TSA-Talk -- Life lessons for the transformation-inclined, courtesy of Jason MartenTaur and our merry band of misfits.

The Lord of the Rings: A Metaphor For Grad School? -- Sometimes it seems like it. I didn't write this, but it's been circulating on the 'Net for a while; if you know who wrote it, contact me.

Top 10 Signs Your DM Needs A Break -- Burnout happens to every Dungeon Master sooner or later. Here are some telltale indicators that it's time for someone else to take the helm.

Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road? -- Musings on the age-old question. I claim no credit or responsibility for this one. :)

You Might Be From Metamor Keep If... -- The concept for this came to me one day when I was rather bored and looking to jump-start my muse. I got it started, and it snowballed from there...

Poetry and Song

I Think I See You -- In all creation, great and small, God's glory is displayed...

All I Want For Christmas -- A love song for Ellen and Nanase of El Goonish Shive, inspired by this piece of fanart. Right-click here to download a recorded version of the song.

Shadow Man -- A song written from the perspective of Susan of El Goonish Shive. It's about her struggle to deal with the memory her father's sexual infidelity to her mother. Right-click here to download a recorded version of the song (7.6 Mb), which is of much more professional quality than my first song. :)

Torch -- A song written from the perspective of Justin of El Goonish Shive. It's the classic story of a young man who's in love with someone who is in love with someone else. This is the first song I ever wrote for guitar, and I've included the chords along with the lyrics. Sorry, no recorded version yet...
