What Inspired Spark…

Comments 6 Standard


Spark the Flying Frog is a combination of many different aspects of my life.

For one, he’s gay, as am I.

He’s a multi-media artist, as am I.

He flies. Sorry. I am still working on that one.

He has many aspects of my own personality, yet
makes decisions that I wouldn’t always make.

In my humble opinion, he spends way too much
time on his art. And yet, I am, as well, simultaneously
jealous, as that is a key secret to his wide success.

He definitely likes to take control, in situations, as much as he
possibly can.

When he starts to learn magick, at first he is apprehensive,
as he is quite confused to the benefits, and how this would
even help with his art making.

Yet, as time goes on, he realizes that it serves as an extremely
important and valuable tool to saving the planet of Light.

I definitely wanted him to be faery like, yet not a faery.

This is where the wings come in.

The kind of frog that he meets is, as well,
extremely intelligent. He, in fact, has a college
degree. His name is Petite. Aside from the fact
that he gets Spark out of an extremely precarious
situation upon meeting, they two’s personalities
merge and coalesce perfectly together.

Why a frog?

I think that the frog form is really interesting.

There aren’t a whole lot of stories where frogs
are the heroes.

I kind of feel for this important race, and wanted
to do it justice.

Perhaps you will feel a little bit differently about frogs,
after experiencing my books?

“Hexeba, darling, count with me, and push. One. Two. Three! That’s it!​

I see a….. wing?​

Oh, he’s so cute! Push one last time!”, encouraged Michigan.​

“You are joking? There’s nothing left of me to push with!”, ​
said Hexeba.​

“Now, Hexee, count with me. Breathe deeply. You can do this! One​

Tttwwwwooooo! Thre…”​

Suddenly, a small baby frog, about the size of a prune, came whizzing out, and very fast.​

It was flying all about the room, and didn’t know where to go! Upon exit from the womb, there was a gigantic spark of magick dust that exploded.​

“That’s it! We will call him Spark!”, announced an amazed Hexeba. “Hexee, dear, are you o.k.?”

catch Spark!”​

She made a spell.​

“With a little help from the God, and the Goddess on this fine day, stop my beloved Spark before he goes away. So mote it be!” Spark slowed down, and landed in her lap.​“

“Wake up.  Wake up!” cried the little frog.

“What?  Whoa.  Wha wha…. Where am I?” asked Spark.

“At the farm, at La Grenouille Frites.”

“Heh?”

“You are in FIRE, in a town called Cuisine Française.  You are on a farm with thousands of other frogs, ready to be this week’s dinner.  We all thought you interesting with your wings and all.  Apparently so did chef Crevette.  She had a time catching you, with a huge net!  Now we all find ourselves trapped inside of this 

bio-dome, in this pond.  The only time we can leave is when someone orders one of us off of the menu.”

“I don’t understand.  I’m on a special mission. I can’t be in here!  Not only our lives, but everyone’s in LIGHT depends on this!  LET ME OUT!  LET ME OUT!!!”

Suddenly, he started to fly around in a crazy fashion.  He was hitting all sides of the dome, and getting banged up.

“Calm down.  It’s okay.  YOU aren’t going anywhere.  Heh, heh, heh, heh.  You are a very lucky frog.  She doesn’t intend to kill you.  At least not yet.  Rather, she wants to stick you in a cage, like a bird, and use you as an ornament to impress the

restaurant guests.”

“You don’t get it.  I was chosen to go on a mission, to save the world.  I can’t be stopped now!  Especially, since the Apovil is moving so closely in, and so quickly. What’s your name?”

“It’s Petite.  Apo-who?  Our world is just fine.  Please calm down.  You will have all the flies that you can handle.”

“Tell me….  Have you noticed a decrease in the amount of frogs that come through here recently?”

“Well, now that you mention it, yes.  I just figured it was an increase in guests.”

“Not quite.  Has the restaurant stayed equally busy, even though the amount of frogs that have come through has decreased?”

“I never thought about this, but, YES!”

“Unfortunately this has been happening all too often in many places around LIGHT.  The planet’s Magickal life force has been on the decline.  No one really knows this.  Everyone thinks that this is just a natural phenomena and that it happens every 

so often.”

“Well, isn’t it?”
