Myst - here used to refer to all the games and novels in that world, except for the not-so-little snag that I've never been able to play Uru or Myst V: End of Ages due to, ah, operating system incompatibility. (Mockery for using a Mac will be bitchslapped, just for the record!)

Snags aside though, this was my first real online fandom, the world where I did my first serious "mature" work, and one of those fandoms that I just keep cycling back to. The worlds within the games are etched and enshrined deep, deep in my psyche; the characters are archetypes to me. Etcetera, etcetera.

One peculiar note is my complete mental block towards writing anything but gen in this fandom. There's just this big flinking WRONG sign at the thought of Myst smut. Perhaps to do with the relentless family-friendly nature of the fandom, or I don't know what. But it's there, and I don't feel like breaking it.

"Sleep was falling, was hanging, was chains hand-carved over mindless years and locked around his own wrists, was a linking book swallowed by acid-green fire, was ten thousand days alone in a prison written with words of madness on howling wind..."
