Hello, all! We’re getting reports from some readers that they’ve been unable to access the site since the middle of last month. Namesake is not on hiatus, and there are no plans for one.
This is the most recent page posted this morning: "Electricity."
In chapter 20, you’re going to be introduced to a lot of people who don’t have a “real” name and that fit into the Namesake universe. Doctors and pub owners and people who help out inside and outside Calliope. Not everyone who works with Calliope are Namesakes.
Names are really elusive things. When you know you’re searching for your real name, it’s a thing that is just constantly out of reach. It doesn’t want to reveal itself to you, but it is there. Then one day, whether you’re 5 or 50, you come across a single word and you know that’s your true name.
You have a place in the Namesake universe, no matter what. You may not be traveling worlds, but you could be writing about them. You could be a mentor or a librarian. There’s other magic beyond Namesake magic. You could be fighting ghosts or healing. There is always a place for you in this universe.
And I know you’re going to find your true name one day. *hugs*
OK, folks. Basic etiquette. If you’re reblogging an obviously happy photo of someone posing with their favorite actress/actor, don’t say how much you hate the characters they portray, because thanks to XKit, there’s a good chance the OP may see it. Then she’ll roll her eyes at you and wonder why the hell you bothered reblogging it in the first place.
