‘Vashwva’ was a short story I wrote in 2014…and have revised now in 2020! Vashwva, as some of you know already, means inevitability and is a Diamondae Aspect. Vashwva, as a short story, is a story of chaos, inevitability, and the fall of the Diamondae. Archalex, a Diamondae, and Catasore have a conversation as the Diamondae are obliterated. It was originally written to explain Vashwva and Catas (chaos) so it was drier and more exposition based. The rewrite seeks to make it flow more easily and align with my current thinking.
I’ve posted both the 2014 original version (but with some edits as there were some semi-spoilers/things I didn’t want to share) and the 2020 revised version. I would suggest reading the revised version first and then the original version. My revised version follows with more of my current thinking and opinions, but I reserve the right to change my mind and edit it again!
