“I just want my cup of coffee.”
Three steps out of the firm’s office–already he was interrupted.
“Harvey–I was just in the area and I wanted to hear your thoughts on the–”
“Bullshit you were in the area, Ronnie. I saw you jump the second you saw me. You were waiting for me.”
“Be that as it may–”
Harvey walked off. Ronnie chased after him.

He looked out the window. He saw up to the horizon. He cursed under his breath.
Belmondo rushed out the room to the hall down the steps and into the kitchen and to Mrs. Franz.
She sat at the kitchen table. Legs crossed across the dusty surface. Feet up. Book in her hands.
Belmondo breathed heavy and said, “Mrs. Franz.”
The Fucking Consequences of Your Health and Salvation!

The following excerpt from ACT ONE takes place in an interrogation room.
–PREVUES OF COMING ATTRACTIONS–
The image fuzzy–warm and blurry with the edges bleeding. The sound warped. Cult-classic foreign flick Harajuku Blues on VHS. Subtitles provided.
–TAPE HICCUPS AND SKIP SKIP SKIPS–
The following is a translated, unpublished submission to the July 1977 edition of the French literary magazine La Crime. It’s author, Amérique Nakamura, is in hiding and wanted for crimes against the state, such as bombmaking and reading.
“No way, nuh uh. I’m not telling you a goddamn thing.”
Cafe Sharktooth, night. Booth in the back. Bustling. Becky and Sawyer. A banana split and a half-eaten pie and a cup of coffee between them. Rockabilly from a jukebox somewhere.
Sawyer popped out and lit yet another Gauloises and set it between her lips and then said, “Why the fuck not?”
The train sliced wind. Trees zipped past blurred. Eyes low- bored.
Opened when a woman sat across from him. Knitted sweater, white heart pattern popped against red. Pearl necklace. Tilted down, a smile under the wide brim hat. Gap between the teeth.
The woman said, “Good day.”
He said, “Better now.”
“We’re the only ones left- and I don’t even know your name.”
She stared at the girl- hard. Wind and rain whipped unrelenting at the both of them, elements soaking into their hair and their faces and their shirts and their dresses and their boots.
“I don’t even know yours.”
I wrote a guest post over at The Archive of Unusual Events, a web serial by Stable.
You should check it out, it’s a very short read but it’s still cool.
Hey, this is Nippoten. This is pretty much my first real blog post that isn’t artwork, so this feels kind of weird. But hey, I’ll deal.
Right, let’s get to the point.
On Saturday, October 1st, I’ll be starting up my web serial, Entirely Presenting You. Dumb title, I know, but whatever. This is actually something I’ve been working on in the background for almost a year now, so it’s crazy to me that it will soon see the light of day.
The story will be found here, so be sure to check it out when the time comes.
And… that’s about all I have for now. I’ve got some teaser stuff I’m working on right now that I’m really excited to share, so hopefully I can get those out soon. I wish I could do the whole mysterious, elusive artist thing and do a bunch of weird cryptic stuff as a form of an announcement, but I don’t exactly have the audience for that. Or an audience at all.
So, yeah. October 1st. See you then.
