Random passages coming from my less than daily attempts at writing exercises. In particular, some of them came about since I had come across what is known as the S+7 game where you replace all the nouns/adjectives/verbs with another word of the corresponding class that is the first one encountered counting 7 or more spaces in a dictionary. Mine this trove of trash or treasure of ideas at your pleasure.

MoonInk: This alchemical product has 101 uses. The Ink/Paint dries to be totally clear and almost unnoticable. Under moonlight, it comes forth as a silver ink. It was originally used by the Elventi to enhance certain pieces of art. It is used by espionage types to produce secret messages, nobles for hiddle plots, and diabolical cultists to write their spell books (usually in books of holy texts, to throw off people reading it).
