Immovable Types

The idea came from stories heard in childhood of the family dream: the great ineluctable wave; the intransigence of Powers faced by Manís pride. It breaks his heart to think of everything gone: poetry and lays and songs; philosophies and treatises; devices and machines he can barely imagine.

So he chops words up into discrete parts; moulds them; turns them into metal. Everything taken apart, rebuilt, fixed. He pictures constellations of knowledge; galaxies of lore.

Others will fear his creation and the unruliness it will bring. But he means to set words free so they will never be lost again.

I do know that Amrothos is named by Tolkien. But he'll always be Isabeau's Amrothos to me.
