Five different blogs by five very different people, all members of an eccentric but charming family with serious issues.

There is Pallas, the matriarch of the Pickering family, a respected surgeon at the Sylvester V. Ackerly Hospital who is married to Karl Pickering, a seventy three year old retired librarian with a fondness for falconry – which is rather difficult to indulge in considering their three story semi-detached home in the heart of a metropolis. They have two children – Deo, a computer hardware engineer and young Hanif, who is fond of sequins. And then there is Pallas’s sister Elke, whom she has not heard of for almost fifteen years.

Deo convinces everybody to start a blog chronicling their daily lives, unwittingly triggering an avalanche of drama, self – discovery, repressed anger, identity disorders and deus ex machinas. All in thirty days.

Their blogs:






Almost all the basic traits of each character were randomly generated, including names, jobs, ages, relationships, gender identity, family role and hobbies. Everything here was made up and bears no resemblance to real or fictional persons ( word padding and disclaimer, rolled into one).

If you were linked here from any of these character’s blogs, I must remind you to never trust what their saying, because more likely than not what you read would lean more towards fiction rather than fact, as much as I like to keep things as close to reality as possible.

I must apologise to whoever was following this, because I didn’t manage to reach 50, 000 words after all. Lots of stuff came up but in the end it was just me being lazy and procrastinating and failing 😦

I might finish this if there’s interest, but most likely you are looking at another ended fullstop of the Internet.
