The Tyrant of the Mind

By:

100-Word Villian

 

“Every new idea is a threat.” The City is the most efficient and orderly known. Twenty years of growth and stability predicated on the Lord’s abilities to limit his subjects’ thoughts.  With an ancient item won with a hidden dagger, the Lord keeps a clairvoyant presence in his subjects’ minds. His only command: “Follow thy path.”  The comprehensive bureaucracy assigns tasks. These tasks become the day’s first and last thoughts.  Homogeneity and routine prevent deviation; novelty is the enemy.  All culture, material and otherwise is regulated.  The Lord and his untested narcissistic heir are alone free to set their paths.

A fine foundation. I can envision a lot springing from this.

The Nomin gypsies have a fiddling competition every year, known as the Danse de Velose. Beaters hit out the rhythm on taut drums and the competitors start to play, slowly at first. Youngsters can compete, but are soon pulled away by worried mothers, before the competition becomes too dangerous. After two hours the haunting tune has become dazzlingly fast. You can resign at any time, but the moment you make a mistake you receive an arrow through the neck. Strings may snap, but the players must play on. The whole affair never lasts much longer than three hours, and the last fiddler playing is crowned king of the gypsies.
