Foedus Fabula

Legends of wraithlike
denizens inhabit our
pilfered coffers – the soulless
preconceptions of
others climbing through leagues of
thick bias, and concrete lies…

  1. You probably didn’t intend this… but I’m a scifi nerd and you used a term I associate with my passion. The biggest Stargate fan. And when I read wraithlike, I thought of the Wraith which were these beings on the show Stargate. And through that perspective, I read a different story yet it still connected with your point when I removed my sci-fi twist. Good job.

  2. I’m a scifi-nerd too. I wasn’t thinking about the show, but then again I was more partial to the original movie, and I haven’t seen it in years. Thanks 🙂

  3. Yup ik. At first I was upset because they have over 10 years of TV lore they are throwing out the door. MGM is a bitch. But, whatever. Anything Stargate is good. Nothing has been on since SGU was canceled.
