Niles Flynn's Bio

Random question, but am I the only one who looks at Paolo Uccello's painting St George & The Dragon and thinks 'hey, why is he killing her pet?' The chain between her and the dragon goes from her wrist to the dragon's neck after all...

Come check out my spin-off blog by Reyna Wildes for a more in depth look at the mythology of Angel of Death:​
And The Echo Phenomenon, written by Hale Woods:
(I'd love some opinions or requests for the next post, monster or otherwise!)


“It's so hard to forget pain, but it's even harder to remember sweetness. We have no scar to show for happiness. We learn so little from peace.” 
― Chuck Palahniuk, Diary


“No one can tell what goes on in between the person you were and the person you become. No one can chart that blue and lonely section of hell. There are no maps of the change. You just come out the other side.

Or you don't.” 
― Stephen King, The Stand

  • Shinda Yō Ni Suru Ni Wa (To Be Dead)

    I think the book is very good so far. The plot is interesting and so far the characters seem well developed. The only thing I would recommend is the to go through and reread all of it for flow as some parts seem a little choppy, and also, your translations were very helpful so you might want to also make sure that some of your important translations all have the english versions. Side note for formatting: For dialogues, if you hold shift when hitting enter, the gap between lines will be less noticable and cause less of (if any) pause in your mind when reading. Good luck finishing the book, and I look forward to seeing where it goes from here.

    Hey, this piece isn't just amazing, it's real, I hope you know that. As an artist and someone who suffers from depression, your writing spoke to me in a way I haven't experienced in a long time, so thank you for creating it. And I hope that time has helped you with whatever loss or pain it was that inspired you to write this, at least as much as it can.

  • Beginning

    Thanks for the comment! and yeah, I'm with you, the last paragraph is awfully long, but the rest of it won't be that way (There'll be actual dialogue! Yay!) so hopefully it won't be as bad in that regard.

    Let me know what you think about the rest of it, if you decide to keep reading!
    And apologies for the slow updates, bear with me, I do have more, I've just been a bit busy.

    Thanks again!

    Glad to see you're writing again, and it's a very interesting idea; I'm curious to see what happens with it. (Unless it's a one-shot? In which case, I'm a bit curious what inspired it...)

    To be honest, any relation between Rem's name and the word remember was completely on accident, however it does work well with the plan for the story. Also, I'm glad to see you're picking up on her name, her names are meant to be important...

  • This Is Why I'm Afraid

    This is amazing so far, better than most of the published books I've read. 
    Also in the first chapter, I'm sure it's not supposed to make people laugh when he starts falling asleep in class, but it made me laugh because I've been there. I find sitting on the edge of the seat so that you start to fall off helps keeps you from sleeping in class.

    Sure, I'd love to help out. I'm a bit busy right now, but I'll have time to read it by the end of the week.

    V as in the letter, it's sort of meant to be symbolism for later.
