R.C. Waldun is a literature student lost in thoughts - which has resulted in the (self)publication of his new novel L'Académie.
These threads provide a space for Waldun aficionados to discuss said work, and related material.

Set in the authoritarian Hunger 1984 Divergent Games universe, "L'Academie" is a story about a man named Eddington whose daily life is dictated by The Regime. Six days a week he leaves his home for L'Académie, a four-year education program where the subjects, upon completion, are allowed to go beyond The Wall.

After the destruction of Clark Elieson: known scalie and Judas. Waldun has disowned him, and has apologized for the faults of his novels

There is talk of a "L'Academie Reconstruction Project," if any writer-anons are interested, please contact anonn#3577. We already have a few writers and a few editors, but if we delegate tasks and work hard, we would be able to complete it by mid-September ( a full rewrite or a large edit).

It's about the movement. Jaidyn is the soul. Jay is the body. Waldun is the mind.

It all runs painfully deep.

Getting to know Waldun (MIND):
The lack of self-awareness. The repressed homosexuality. His early masterpiece, The Learned Disguise, is the only way in. However, you can start your journey into this young man via his fashion advice as inspired by his daddy issues (trying to please him but realizing he must make his own path to self-discovery): https://youtu.be/TyTh_F0rc-A

Shut the fuck up already. It would be better for /lit/ if you redirected the energy you're throwing at Waldun into community events for writers to exhibit their work.

i agree in theory, but your energy and ambition for this community isn't well met in the rest of the population, myself included.

A decade from now academics will still be debating who got it right: Orwell or Huxley. Waldunchads will sit in the back of the lecture halls with a slight smirk on their face. They're still debating this...even after all these years? Heh. They'll get up and move slowly to the door.

As a cool wind blows through the campus they'll put their earbuds in and adjust their collar. Slyly, they'll drop a copy of L'Academie onto the ground. It's not rubbish--but it will surely be picked up...eventually.

He's never really warmed anyone's hearts. At the end of the day he's still a delusional "influencer" who holds his literary aspirations lower than his YouTube persona. If he wasn't ironically saved by Clark's betrayal we'd be roasting him as hard as ever.
However, he believes he has the talent to become a great writer/thinker and his half-assed, naive, irony-soaked, pursuit will always give me a hearty chuckle. The day KD succeeds and Waldun's bubble bursts will be the day my heart is warmed. Because that will be a sign of true growth from Waldun who I sincerely wish the best for.

Waldun. I know you're reading this. I wanted to share a quote from one of Moliere's plays. He's a French playwright if you haven't heard of him. Make of this quote what you will.

>Sir, These are delicate matters; we all desire
>To be told that we've the true poetic fire.
>But once, to one whose name I shall not mention,
>I said, regarding some verse of his invention,
>That gentlemen should rigorously control
>That itch to write which often afflicts the soul;
>That one should curb the heady inclination
>To publicize one's little avocation; >And that in showing off one's works of art
>One often plays a very clownish part.

Could be. But the thing is...

>He genuinely didn't know how shit the book is
>KD called out the dishonesty of schilling a bad product for financial gain
>Waldun accepted that the book was terrible and could be considered a ripoff
>Waldun did the right thing and underscored personal growth as a gain instead of financial benefits

He already has a brand/media persona. You could be cynical and write it off as enhancing that. However, this is the redemption arc and we'll see how it all plays out.
