“Chronicles of Chaos and Consonance” is made up of poetry and poetic stories. It’s about tragedies in general that people don’t often talk about openly with a kind of holistic view about them and how they can be connected with triumph. The vocabulary might be a bit difficult for even native English speakers but there are enough manageable words where the reader can grasp the tone of the story, or that was what I was hoping for when I wrote it. I feel that understanding the tone of the story is equally, if not more important than the details of the words.
It’s an anthology, of an Ignoble King, ill-fated twins, a Warlord, a forlorn family and a hero who was searching for more
“The Ignoble King”
The main character begins learning, making interpretations of the world he’s in. He goes into a forest and finds a palace which falls apart as he’s attacked by the shadows of the forest, which was their way of making him their king. He then wanders around and finds a tyrannical ruler who explains to him that he must rule mercilessly and with absolute authority. He leaves and then finds another ruler who explains that he must rule with endless love and compassion. Then he leaves again and tries to decide for himself what he’ll do. He takes a good look at the shadows to really see what they are and what they’re about. Afterwards, he renounces his throne, fights against them, meets a moon maiden and is finally free of his position of being King
“Magic and Fire”
Genies and dragons don’t get along very well. There are people who tame dragons and there are others who practice the same magic that genies do. There’s an explorer who is negatively affected by magic and then witnesses a fight between a dragon and a genie. There are also two brothers, twins, who are old enough to start learning how to tame dragons. One of them wasn’t meant to tame dragons and instead was meant to practice magic but no one is aware of this. Every time he makes an attempt to tame a dragon it goes into a rage and rampages out of control. Eventually, the explorer happens to be wandering by and he gets hurt by an out of control dragon. The one brother runs away because he feels ashamed and the explorer decides to become a slayer after falling victim to both genies and dragons. They each go on to understand more about genies, dragons and how they relate. Later on, the brother who ran away returns to deliver a message and then tries to leave again but his twin chases after him. When the twin catches up with his brother, his brother tries to fight him off. During the altercation, Slayer finds them and starts to fight them both. The twins find a way to work together to defeat Slayer and cast him away. After Slayer is sent away he is brought back to where he witnessed the fight between the dragon and the genie and helps to resolve the differences between them

Begins with a hero. One day he feels less than adequate and he meets a man named Chivalry who explains to him what being a legend is. This hero then goes on a quest to obtain the Libation of Legends from an old man. The old man denies him and the hero becomes incredibly upset. He wanders off and finds a cave. While in the cave he finds a glowing skeleton, realizes that it belongs to a now deceased Chivalry and he begins wonder what the purpose of anything is. He follows a similar light deeper into the cave and finds glowing pools of water. He looks into one of the pools and it changes color in response to his emotions. He goes further inside the cave and finds a fire, fireflies and the moss that’s causing everything to glow. Here is where he begins to think about spirits and spirituality. He goes even further in the cave, which opens up to reveal the night sky. He looks at the stars and thinks of the connection between himself the stars, the sky and everything else within view. He finally finds his way outside of the cave and sits at the edge of a cliff where he is able to sort things out. He sits there until the sun rises, and by that time he’s developed an entirely new perspective of things
