The Raven


This archive of entries represents all of the writing displayed on the site. First time visitors may wish to read from the earliest titles. Essays are displayed in order from oldest to newest. These have been removed from the dated archives in order to shorten the pages. The older archives were becoming quite lengthy, slowing the load process, and were difficult to navigate. The latest essay typically appears at the bottom of this list -- unless published out of order, in the case of the continuing stories -- at the time the entry appears on the main index. Upon publishing something new, the previous titles remain here. The archived notes in silver regarding site status, developments, etc., have been left at the top of each writing.

Indented sections with roman numerals represent stories which continue over several sections. Those entries are grouped together to keep them better organized for readers covering the material in order. Dates reflect initial publishing.

Prior to 'The Air' in February of 2015 the entries were not titled in the current fashion.

Below are older archived site updates and blogs, by year. Early dates reference site changes and some still have the original coloration which dominated the pages at the time the entries were written. Many of the links are out of date as pages have been removed and/or changed throughout the years. These sections have been left largely untouched for historical reasons. This archive is arranged with oldest entries at the top and dates heading down the page toward the end of each year. At the bottom of each archive is a link to the proceeding year. The 2002 archive will not return and only remains here for reference to the site being born. Most images throughout the archives have been removed. The words are the key.

The titled entries are now located within the writing section in order to keep the pages shorter. Archived entries after 2015 are no longer linked below.

Some of the more sensitive information from the 2002 archive has been transferred into 2003. During the early days of this site's administration, some information was spread across many storage devices within both the US and Europe. In order to maintain control over the property rights, we have moved a few things around the servers. Fluidity of content remains intact.

Also, there is no archived content from 2010 as that year turned out to be completely fucked in every way conceivable. Too bad.


The archive is right down this hallway...
