Black and Red Ink



Why is this page called Black and Red Ink? Well because I think that sounds e d g y and it can be a really vague Aztec reference I guess?

This is where I post my creative writing 

Here are some links to my novels, short stories and poetry. Most of this stuff was written at 3 AM. Links will lead to either Google Drive, my Deviantart profile, my Medium account, or older blog posts. To buy any of the novels, go to my Amazon author page

Wait don't actually buy them guys I was just joking-

Novels 

The Turtle Island Explorer Two modern-day American communists decide to time travel to compare their ideas to that of pre-contact Native American societies using a time machine known as The Turtle Island Explorer. 

The Dehydrated Diaries In what is technically a novella not a novel, a teenage girl with the ability to revive the dead, which is strange enough already, finds out that dehydration can somehow help her understand ancient civilizations in a way she never thought to be possible. 

Ome-Cuauhtli of Anahuac In a dystopian world far off into the future, one man leads an uprising of Native American people and ushers a renaissance of Aztec and Mayan culture.

Misplaced A young girl finds that she isn't content with her current time period and meets a wizard who promises to cast a spell that will help her time travel, but first she has to help him stop the end of the world. 

Swan Song Cultures from every continent unite against a common enemy in this fast-paced dystopian novel. 

The Snarling Tiger A tribute to my culture and the many diverse people of the Indian subcontinent, it follows the adventures of a United Nations delegate of Bangladesh who is also a cyborg.  


Short Stories 

An Author in Antarctica A self-reflection on my own flaws when it comes to writing, using two Antarctic explorers as a vessel for my thoughts. 

The Last Phet A sci-fi about a fictional alien race called the Phets whose native planet is colonized by invaders. 

Death Drive The protagonist of this short story encounters a wise sage sitting under a bridge who claims to be able to see her future. 

Never Alone All a young linguist wanted when she entered a tattoo parlor in Los Angeles was a design of her favourite letter of the International Phonetic Alphabet, but it turned out the artist she meets is not what he seems. 

The Axolotl and the Emperor There is a lot of pressure on Ce, the heir to the throne of All the Land between the Waters, on the day of his coronation ceremony. 

Poems

The Nomad's Walkabout Inspired by Australian aboriginal rites of passage 

Your Hands A very short love poem which focuses on just one of his many aesthetically pleasing features. Almost Rupi Kaur-esque? 

Ode to the Lows On the struggles of poverty 

Ick An experiment with onomatopoeia inspired by my car sickness 

Commit these Words to the Flames A ballad to my own self-hatred

Warrior Motivational piece for Native American activists

Roots A sonnet on serfdom 

Cold Set in Antarctica, Patagonia, or some other super cold place. Very good general representation of my style as it is completely saturated with some not-so-subtle historical allusions.

These are not my people Explores the topic of being seen as a foreigner when you return to your own homeland after many years away

Goddess of Wisdom On an ex-friend of mine who was treacherous but who I thought was really wise

The World Spirit Inspired by Hegel's views on the philosophy of history.

Memories of you I couldn't get over the friendzone so I wrote this.

Oath to Humanity A poem against patriotism which supports the unity of the human race 

Humanity vs. Time My shortest poem and also one of my most popular, with 80 favourites on DeviantArt.

River A philosophical spoken word poem that likens imagery of a river to human nature in an extended metaphor 


Nonfiction 

Your Inner Nomad A somewhat scientific article I wrote for the Spyglass magazine about a gene which causes intense wanderlust, common in people from migratory cultures.

The Value of Morality in a World of Lies  Another article I wrote for the Spyglass magazine about the application of ethical philosophy to political movements. 

Why the Dark Ages weren't so Dark: Revisiting Medieval Europe A devil's advocate article explaining why the Middle Ages weren't as bad as people say they were. 

The Accomplishments of the Mexica Empire A speech I wrote and presented for the TedxYouth@RHHS 2017 event.
