Ninian’s Memory

Here’s a snippet from my WIP, in which Ninian is returning from his trip to his memory palace.

Ninian dragged himself through the halls of his memory palace, leaving that small cottage with the images of his initiation and the taking of his revenge against Ronan, Cathal, and Bran in their turn, feasting upon them as thoroughly as he had Niall. He watched with a touch of sadness as he readied himself for the trip to London, and Ruathal setting his cottage aflame, going inside one last time. He walked past the room where he spied Carlo in the library at Oxford, that studious young man, and fell in love with him once more as he took him for his own. He watched the betrayal as he woke from his rest alone, Carlo having left him.

He finished waking to the present world in that same library, his intercom buzzer going off.

Barely restraining himself from smashing the phone to bits, he answered.

  1. That’s an intriguing scene.


  2. Thanks 🙂 Our Ninian doesn’t have a very good moral compass 🙂 he’s proving interesting to draw up ❤


  3. Sounds like Ninian may have to learn some lessons the hard way. (Your inspiration for him is quite yum, though.)


  4. Oh it’s definitely the other way around 🙂 he’s had chances to learn for almost a thousand years, after all 🙂


  5. Interesting memories. (And if he wants to smash a phone, can he come to work with me, please? I’d get my med pass done so much sooner if the phone was little bits of plastic and wires…)


    1. I’ll ask him ❤ but he might want more–

      Glad you liked it–he's shaping up to be an interesting being 🙂


  6. Intriguing flashback…


  7. Thanks ❤ I'm glad you liked it 🙂


  8. Very interesting concept. I’m not sure I’d like being able to recall certain memories with such clarity. Some things are best forgotten, so I feel for Ninian, here.


  9. Ninian’s ability is very vibrant; it hoes have something to do with his vampiric mage skills that he’s honed over the past thousand years 🙂 Ninian might very well be past redemption, however–


  10. OK, now I am hooked. I like the Memory Palace detail. Nice touch.


    1. Thanks 🙂 I’m glad you liked it. I did a little research into it. It’s a handy thing to have for a being like Ninian who has a thousand years of memories so far 🙂


  11. Love the photo. I could get used to a muse like that 😀 He’d have to grow his hair, though. A very intriguing snippet! I like characters with questionable morals, so much more interesting.


    1. Thanks, I’m glad you liked it 🙂 Yes, that young man makes a fine muse for Ninian, but for him, the hair would be a problem. You see, he was turned in medieval Ireland, and he was caught having sex with his boyfriend–because Ninian was the bottom at that particular time, he was turned out of the tribe, and his hair was cut off; his beard, also. Since he was turned not long after that, it didn’t get a chance to grow out 🙂

    I’ve never developed a knack for building memory palaces, but I’m always intrigued by people who do. Interesting snippet!

    (Also, are you on twitter? I looked for you there but there were so many Kathy Griffiths that I didn’t know who was who.)


    1. I’m glad you liked the snippet; Ninian’s memory palace is quite extensive, since he’s almost a thousand years old 🙂 I first became acquainted with the concept when I read Hannibal, and I did some research.

      Alas, no, I’m not on Twitter; I don’t have a smartphone, so I don’t twit 🙂 But if I had a dollar for everytime someone thought I was Kathy Griffin, I’d be rich haha 🙂


  13. Intriguing snippet. Love the photo too.


  14. Thank you 🙂 He’s my muse 🙂
