And that’s the punchline, folks. Thanks for reading!
Tomorrow will be the official “end” and I’ll explain what’s coming next for this site.
I feel like I want to see a longer, deeper patch of underground graves
Sorry, saving that for the print version.
Son of a bitch!
Thanks for a good ride, I was not expecting this particular encapsulation! Your talent will surely find a new home, looking forward to experiencing your next creation.
thanks for the beautiful story!
looking forward to the next
So it isn’t a continuous cycle; it breaks and renews itself! Many unresolved questions; did the little man bury all those snakes himself? Does it always return home to die? Is it the same snake returning, or is a new one called forth by the death of the last one? Aviv, thank you; you have enriched all our lives with this story.
All excellent questions. It would probably be better if I leave them unanswered. It’s more mysterious this way…
I’m glad to hear you, and others, have enjoyed it, and more importantly – enjoyed the ending as well. One of my biggest fears.
Thanks for reading, everyone!
I absolutely was NOT expecting that ending. Well done.
I guess the Snake is a spiritual ouroboros as well as a physical one. Interesting tribute to Jordmundgandr.
May the new baby-snake-god avoid flies long enoug to find a worthy brow to lick!
By the way, thank you very much for this fantastic read!
Excellent ending, my friend!
You know,…the lesson here is that the snake’s worshippers REALLY need to stop making fly-attracting stew here for their serpenty god(s)… I mean,…do they never learn?!?!
By the way,…I’ll probably need to re-read it to figure it out,…but what did this particular story (that of the snake’s involvement in others’ lives, and his final-yet-circular fate) have to do with the whole corpse-in-the-lighthouse-seagull-key-dropping event? Did I miss a crucial clue somewhere? Did I skip past some important info?
The lighthouse keeper’s death was mainly to scare people into thinking something awful was gonna happen. But it also has a different meaning in the print version (it’s pages longer there).
Well,…then I shall have to buy the printed version,…of course!
Whoa! I was not expecting this! I wonder if all of the Snakes die of something completely mundane?
Sure. They have to die in the stupidest way possible, otherwise they don’t quite live up to their name.
My heart goes out for the Dwarf! He spent his life worshiping a creature that he indirectly killed! His faith also made him lose his lover and his trusted duck companion. Now he’s all alone!
