Here is a short excerpt to whet your appetite:

The building rose above the busy streets of Tifijimi and the dense cluster that made up the School of Death. Tawny sandstone walls, flecked with quartz, glittered in the tropical sun. A white wall framed the courtyard, painted with vivid scenes: to the left of the gate, a deathfin's ominous head and to the right, a ship snarling with weapons. Scrolled in iron above the bars of the gate was the famous motto: "All that lives, dies. All that dies, becomes memory."

Brelig passed through the gate, the attendant waving him through without fee for sake of his Warsailor Guild pin. Access to the Museum of Mortality was a perk for all members of the Guild. Scanning the sign in the entry hall, he found a pointer to the relevant office.

"Warsailor Brelig reporting," he said to the clerk behind the front desk. "I've just come off medical leave, and the Guild has assigned me here for light duty, starting next tenday." He slid his paperwork across the desk to her.

Author's Notes

This story came out of the May 2012 Muse Fusion. It was inspired by prompts from LJ users ellenmillion, wyld_dandelyon, vaerys, kelkyag, and wytchcroft.
