NO1SEY's TRACKLIST


Hey everyone! Welcome to my writers' album. Here you will find a list of my current projects, my plots in development and my plot ideas.

I will keep it as up to date as I can and make it as easy as possible to find your way to my work.

Feel free to give general feedback on the ideas, but please reserve reviews, in depth feedback and analysis for the development pages, which I will link.




FINISHED PROJECTS

TITLE: Balthazar the Fury
GENRES: Action, Fantasy, [Music]

Spoiler

A three part short story based on 3 heavy metal songs. Follows the story of Balthazar, a great warrior as he falls from grace and seeks revenge.

Potentially part of a larger project.

TITLE: Godless In the Wake of Storms
GENRES: Action, Historical, [Fantasy]

Spoiler

A short, novel style piece depicting the slaughter and pillage of the Lindisfarne Monastary during at the very beginning of the Viking invasion of Britain. It is told in the 3rd person but narrating things how the characters would have seen and interpreted things; with boats becoming dragons, holy wards, and horned monsters.

Originally intended to be a series of self contained shorts - may revisit the idea in the future.

CURRENT PROJECTS

TITLE: PUBLIC ENEMY NO.2 (BEING RE-WRITTEN)
GENRES: Action, Comedy, Crime

Spoiler
Set in 1930's America during the great depression, John Dillinger (Dillinger) has become Public Enemy No.1, with a reported life of crime and recently stealing 10 000 dollars from a bank transport after being let out on parole.

This, however, has made life increasingly difficult for Dayton Ohio average-man John Dillinger (John), who, for sharing the name of Ohio's most wanted, is unable to get a job, get a mortgage to move out and escape his nagging mother, and get a girlfriend.

One day, after being turned down for a mortgage by the local bank in Dayton and with nothing left to lose, John decides to live up to his name and rob the bank. Turns out he is fairly proficient in the art of crime, with a brilliant mind for observation, planning and execution, and everything is going well until... Enter Dillinger, self-proclaimed criminal mastermind and overconfident goofball, with the intention of being "the greatest bank thief in history", who ends up drawing all attention to John and ruining his plan. The two bail from the bank and, after introductions revealing Dillinger to actually be a terrible criminal, they team up.

And so begins John's new life of crime and adventure, helping Dillinger to fulfil his dream whilst forming a gang and meeting old acquaintances and rivals, planning and pulling heists and bank robberies, escaping prisons and the beginnings of the FBI.

PLOT IDEAS


TITLE: GRIM
GENRES: Action, Comedy, Supernatural

Spoiler
Some beings, once they die, have a hard time accepting that they are dead, so they have to be killed again to be convinced. This is the job of GRIM - a little dysfunctional 'family' of ghost hunters - who seek out dead beings still grasping onto the world and 'double-dead' them.

However, whilst the group's most unorthodox/eccentric individual - yet greatest talent - is out on a mission, he encounters a young child that cannot die. He takes this child back to base, where he is reluctantly made to be the child's supervisor until they can find a way for this child to die and the reason behind his anomalous existence. The boy is naive, oblivious and a little dumb, but most importantly he is terrified of ghosts, however due to him being under supervision he is dragged out on missions.

Ghosts that are very reluctant to pass on are tortured by their desire to live and become monstrous - in power and appearance - which is terrifying for the boy - and the talent from GRIM hates working in a team, so often uses the boy as bait or injures him in order to secure his mission objectives

There is also a rival group of ghost hunters - HADES - some original members of GRIM that split off with a different ideology - they provide competition and rivalries.




TITLE: Crescendo a Morte - The Perish Song
GENRES: Mystery, Slice of Life, [Action, Comedy]

Spoiler
A new phenomenon sweeps across the nation, an infamous song that allegedly results in the listener dying 7 days after listening to it (possibly by random accidents but exactly 168 hours after listening). The news reports on supposedly linked deaths but disclaims that they were actually caused by the song.

The story focuses on the lives led by several people in the week following listened to the song:
1) A person who turns to religion
2) A person who turns to trying to do charitable deeds following a life of crime
3) A person who turns to crime and drugs
4) A person who tries to make a name for themselves
5) A person who tries to experience everything that they want to
6) A person that confesses their love
7) A conspiracy theorist who must find out if it's real, how and why

The stories may intertwine.

Note: I think I want to name some chapters after songs, and have the songs feature as a profound influence behind the chapter - in what characters say or what they do.




TITLE: The Order of Heaven
GENRES:

Spoiler

During the age of the crusades a Medieval order of knights exists to protect the secret that there is no afterlife. A man survives a near death experience and realises the truth that the foundation of religious practice is a lie and that the churches promises to those fighting in the crusade are false. This attracts the attention of the secret order, but on a more personal level can he expose the truth when someone he loves is scared on their deathbed?

for one the summary is difficult to understand. you explaining it too fast giving names to everything imediately not really giving us the ppint of it all.

honeslt ypur trying to give too much in a story. dodnt we discuss in the past about focusing on things such as psychological. its really mind numbing to trying to read it all. and quite frankly it looks too planned for it to be an easy understandable idea. if you do simplify it sounds a lil stale. guy with amnesia lost in space....

short or long. its hard to undrstand. cut out whateber isnt necessary. (theres enough to believe it unnoticeable).

it doesnt look like your aiming for light novel. their pacing is stagnant but usually easy to comprehend.

i also notice alot of theatrics, not enough substance. understand why certain series are paced certain ways.

very interesting concept. id certainly read it if it were a comic or book. though theres a few things you might want to look into.

im not critic, but i noticed you started the story with amnesia. now, i personally have no problem with this, but ive been around a few forums where people seem to LOATHE the idea of starting a series with amnesia. I'd look into why that is exactly, and see what you can do to pull it off in a way that doesnt immediately turn some people away. Im of the belief that any over-used trope or cliche can be pulled off if done tastefully.

Also, im just curious. Have you played the Mass Effect series? (i highly recommend playing through it if you want to write a science fiction. plus its just great fun  :thumbsup:) I was faintly reminded of some of the elements used in that series and the ones you presented. Now, im not saying that's a bad thing, but when things are very similar, you want to distinguish them from other already published ideas so they seem more fresh and original and not just copies.

I'll be more clear on that last point: You mentioned that there is a
Spoiler
child on board that ends up being the MC's imagination. In the last Mass effect. The main character sees a child all throughout the game, and is never quite explained till the end (and it's still pretty confusing). This lead to a theory among the fan base that the child you see never actually existed. That the main character was actually just "dreaming" it (it will make more sense if you play the game and watch the theory video).

There are a few reviewers out there who have argued (or tried to at least) that the Mass effect games also touched on humanities "insignificance" in the universe. Their reasoning as to why was full of holes and fallacies though, so it wouldn't worry too much about that. As i've said before on one thread here or another, try not to let the message cloud or anchor the story. You have to keep people who may disagree with your message interested.

Similarities aside, you have a really good spring board to start with. I'd say let the thoughts and ideas marinate for a bit, and maybe give a look see into the things i mentioned. Just a suggestion though.

hope this helps. Prost :cheer:

yea man, i hear ya.

As far as the hallucination bit goes, it does stand alone in it self from mass effect's bit with that. S i'd say if youre feelin it, keep at it.

and again with the cliches and tropes. its something anime and manga violate nearly ALL the time. so who cares what cliches happens, you know? how many well received anime/mangas have a protagonist who is: a teenager, martial arts expert, good looking, intelligent, hooks up with their dream person?  quite a few, yet people still keep dishing out these MCs, so i just dont scrutinize anymore.
