The Clockwork Ghost is a character from a story I one wrote. He travels through town completely invisible to all the other residents, trying to get someone's attention. Nobody can see him however, and he simply drifts along without any purpose for even existing - a ghost adrift in a sea of humanity. Each morning he winds himself up with a big brass key, and then slowly winds down over the course of the day, before running out of energy and going back to sleep again.
I am a Clockwork Ghost. Each morning I wake up half dead from the anti-psychotics I use to get to sleep, I wind myself up through meditation, then go out in to the world - full of energy. I am a nobody, I do a nothing job - I could be anyone. Nobody sees me because I hide in plain sight, just the same as everyone else. I then wind down over the course of the day, my mechanism slowly unravelling, until I come to a complete stop once more.
How about you?
Wow, I really like this. This will give me something intriguing to think about every time I read a post from you.
My full name is Hælos Tireoh Dagaz.
It's a mix of several words in Latin that appealed to me (that I can no longer remember) and then scrambled. The last name only happens to be a rune. I originally kept it because it's a unique spelling on Dagas (as in Edgar Degas, a fantastic painter).
There's not any real purpose to it, just something unique that came from a mix of lots of other words. It's been empowered as my chosen name, so by now it represents many things that were not my original intent.
If you can't figure out how to pronounce that, by the way:
