I am a Chronicle. I travel not only through space and time, but probability as well. A modern-day minstrel gathering mysteries from far and near.

In my subjective past, there were forms of literature cast as Fiction and Non-Fiction. Since the advent of the technology that allows my profession, however, all barriers between fact and fantasy have been removed. Anything that COULD happen HAS happened. For that matter, anything that COULDN’T happen has most likely happened as well.

It’s just a matter of locating it and recognising the event for what it is.

As a Chronicle, I bring to you the songs of races long dead and the poetry of a billion stars. Campfire tales from before time and from another reality before breakfast.

I am the tesseract unfolded, releasing unimaginable geometries to pen and page.

    I had actually put together this persona a while ago to bind together all of my scattered bits of poetry and prose.

    First-person may not always fit, but nearly all of my third person writings can be read as being ‘Chronicles’. ;)

    An intriguing kind of ‘non-ficly’ – something existing in the realm of fiction/non-fiction, but also distinctly separate from it. Defining it, perhaps.

    Reading other pieces, be they yours or others, through this lens, would undoubtedly provoke questioning and critiquing, and that’s always a good thing… Thank you! MH :)

    the best line here, due to it’s clarity of description: Anything that COULD happen HAS happened. For that matter, anything that COULDN’T happen has most likely happened as well. :) I was thinking.. THE INTERNET! But i know, this goes way beyond that.. the chronicle, not bad, but it needs a form.. just my opinion..

    Nicely done as an entry to the challenge. It’s definitely out there but stays consistent within itself. It kind of reminds me of the Marvel Comics ‘What If…’ series.

    It’s different, ambiguous, but I think you make it work. There’s something about the “anything that could happen has happened. For that matter, anything that couldn’t happen has most likely happened as well” reminded me of the Infinite Improbability concept in Hitchhiker’s Guide.
    I think that since this “Chronicle” is, at least here, of ambiguous form, it leaves some freedom to blend in wherever he/she/it needs to. That would be interesting to explore, having different forms of the same being in different times and places, and probabilities as well.
    This definitely has continuing potential, and it’d be interesting to look at other pieces through that lens… and good on ya for being the first to enter! =)
