At the threat of being beheaded, of course the Alphabets would bow.Said by Me
Bloody Alphabets came into being when a couch potato—who finally decided to do some work—had a dream that would change the world and save the masses. (Yes, I am the protagonist. Nothing to see here, move along).
“What was the dream?” You ask. “Did they discover that they were the Last Airbender?”
No! Nay! Something even MORE precious was found (please take my word for it).
But alas, Rome wasn’t built in a day and they were not an architect (neither am I a lexicologist or linguist). So it is here we bide our time, building up our armory and strengthening our defenses in wait for the moment they let their guard down.
“Know thy enemy and know them well,” said they, on trial for reading and writing literature in English. “My people, I stand before you accused but freely innocent. To bring down the lexic-archy, we must be tolerant. To produce a new form, we must master the old! Then, and only then, can we say that we have fought a revolution!”
Bloody Alphabets sets you (and me, and them) on the journey of improving our craft and making English our own—a weapon against itself. At the threat of being beheaded, of course the Alphabets would bow. (Hehe).
