Magic Realism

A discussion between me, Gothicess, and my handy little gnome, who’s looking quite tasty at this moment, in this time between all. He’s such an expressivist philosopher but the expressivist soul tastes like a cool lemonade on a hot summers day. I don’t mind waiting for him to complete his thought, it prolongs and satiates my anticipation every time I dine, although I’m not known for my patience!

If Franz Roh’s idea of magic realism was an attempt to show everyday objects were enriched with a sense of mystery and unreality, as cited by Asayesh & Arargüҫ, then everything is magical? If it’s true, even though I am magic, then the air we breathe, the life within me… It all means; as I am a creature of this planet, which floats in what is called space, I am a creation of magic and being I perceive myself as real, does that make me one of Roh’s characteristics he attributed to the term, magic realism?


Dinner time… I mean my turn:

All right, let’s do this! I know I’m a character, my flesh and my mind feel the invisible made manifest and tangible through a magic my thoughts rationalise, even though, like you, I am magic I’ll play this little game before we eat… for me to comprehend the real of the magic all around us. So, yes! I too believe we might be characteristics of magic realism, but don’t believe it can be contained within just 22- characteristics. It’s a relative term dependent upon on the perspective of the observer and interactive influences within the greater mutual idea of the self, set in the world where you apparently live. And… we’re out. Dinner time!

Oh! Come on, don’t scream, you know it only makes me want you more.

Welcome to the final round

Transcript:

We had a spy within our ranks seeking an entry into our worlds from the Shadowland’s, a gruelling, hot and dirty space between the Now’s and Then’s, the Those and They’s, a land beings from this world have labelled many things, but that’s a Hell of a way to spend a Wednesday!

Never mind all that, let’s get on with the news.

After Fiction’s folly and failure to infiltrate the Guild, the Grandmaster’s came to a decision about who they’d like to know more about. It was someone they perceived as being worthy of the position on offer, the user now known as Masquerader V.

The question Masquerader V must answer is: Write a short story about who you are without saying who you are, in book form.

We all wish V good luck. Don’t fail us now, you saw what happened to Fiction!

Fiction is Disqualified!

While the Death Screamers, Annabel and the Whisperers keep watch over the interviewees, the Grandmaster’s and I, Gothicess PR queen and nightmarishly delightful, will work behind the scenes, well it’s always behind the scenes when it comes to… Other beings, of the Gothic Guild and will fill… You in when WE are ready and not a moment… Before!

(The enhanced hiss throughout is a deliberate technique I’ve used to give more depth to the Gothicess character.)

Midnight lights spot empty streets where feet both tread and run some dance in fun watching down upon through eyes glazed double triple over time as it passes by edging lives trimmed and preened expectations crowding worlds truths unseen by steeple roofs and clay born houses with eyes bleak seeping through single panes to enframe life as it is sold and told through technologies focus audiovisual tokens aspects of a world enclosed tamed unavowed kept bidden sways of leafy trees collapsing shadows and in-betweens as urban decay sheds life’s skin to openly display those held within a grasp manufactured to do as its bid and all for the focus of a world in decline one that was yours one that was mine as galloping flames technologically created to wipe out our source to wipe out creation to the detriment of the self.
