the story so far


I’ve been requested to “gather up” the story or to provide a full list of posts in chronological order. I can’t do that without crowding everything up, and besides, they are already lined up – the story is in chronological order from the first post to the last. However, I have made this page which contains the story as it is so far. It’s both a summary and a list (inside the summary) of the story so far, with short descriptions of what you’re reading in that part of the story and how you should treat it. So here it is:

The actual events which contain the main part or the story itself starts with “the girl who came back” and from there it’s just the story, if you go up in chronological order. It continues with “the girl who came back [part 2]” and then with “questions which should not have answers” and upwards. Reading from the first one in ( the girl who came back ) and upwards is like reading a book. Each post starts with the ending of the previous, like chapters if you wish, marked with [story part X] for easier connections.

However, and please take note, this is the most important part: the story makes no sense whatsoever if you do not know a few things beforehand like who I am, why am I writing, what’s up with this story. As such, before reading the actual story, you are required to read something else. You might be interested to know “who am I?” and then find out”about this blog“. Both of which are really important.

After that, you need to wash your brain of Hollywood crap and find out about the real Vlad the Impaler, Dracula himself, as he is in the history books and in the heads and manuscripts of people who are actually living in his hometown. You can do this by reading the post named “on dracula”.

Speaking of his hometown, the last post you need to read before digging into the story is a post called “old town” which does just that. It presents you where the action unfolds as good and as accurately as possible. It presents you the town of Sighisoara, the town where Dracula was born, it does so with photos and description of places. This is also a good read if you’re just planning on a tourist visit.

In case you want to know more about me and how my life was before, and how I was during that time when the events unfolded, you can read more about me in the “prologue”.

The posts are tied between them, so really, my best advice would be just start with the very first (about this blog) and don’t stop. You won’t miss anything if you do just that.

So, lets sum it together: you decided you want to read? Good choice. Then here’s what you need to do:

Read the introduction which is composed of:

“who am I?”
“about this blog”
“on dracula”
“old town”

and about myself: “prologue”

And now head to the main body of the story:

Start with: “the girl who came back” and work your way up, or consult the index.

And that’s all you need to know! You can now enjoy it as a book.
N.B! – posts that are not actual parts of the stories are accordingly marked and posted in the “explanations” category and not in the “stories” category.

Speaking of which, using the categories could be another way of reading the blog.
One more note: the parts that are not the actual story (the introduction part) might not be such good readings: they are comprised out of two: history and my reflections on that – so they might be considered ramblings by some of you. However, I really think you should suck it up (pun intended) and read them. I’m not on to wasting your time, I don’t have anything to gain if you stay longer on this website or not, I purely want you to enjoy the story as much as you can, and you need to understand it in order to be able to do that.

All for the best,
XXIV

    I’m really enjoying this blog!!

  • Randall says:

    Wait how do i find the beginning of the story? Stupid question, sorry.

    • sapindale says:

      It’s written right here on the page you’re commenting. The story starts with the post named “the girl who came back” – to find that just use the search function or press the “stories” category. However, like I said on the “the story so far” page, I highly recommend you reading the “who am I?” page, the “about this blog” post, the “on dracula” post and “old town” and the “prologue” post. That is the background you need to understand the story properly.

      Please provide feedback on what was unclear/poorly expressed on this page, so I can re-write it for easier access/better understanding. What part didn’t you understand? What seemed confusing?

      • Randall says:

        Curse my ancient computer, it didn’t show the links so I had no idea where to find the beginning because all I saw were the titles. Sorry for wasting your time and sounding like an utter idiot. I found it now, hah.

    it does seem ss- strange to have little children come out at nighttime and just walk up to people and have a barrage of evil – scared emotions stir in the humans and even more with their black eyes?????- one does wonder if they are the puppets??? but more so at ”WHO IS THE PUPPETEER!!!!!……..esoteric knowledge covers a lot of territory and can bewilder the ones who have little knowledge..pray–pray and ask GOD for guidance and help—we are in the war….of spiritual evil in high places.

    Just thought i’d say i stumbled on this blog a couple of weeks ago, and have been finding each part of your story just as addictive as the last. As for whether I believe it’s true, lol who knows, but in any case, you have another faithful reader. Much love brother, and please keep em coming.

  • kevin says:

    is there anymore after questions that should not have answers or does it end that way?

    • sapindale says:

      Yes, there are about another 45 posts after that. You just haven’t found them yet I guess. Just follow the “next post” button, I’ll make sure to update this page too in the meantime.
