Kyle Sabberton was one of 50 chosen to be among the first humans to colonise another world in the distant Alpha Centauri, but to make the journey they would all need to be able to survive a journey that would take a millennium of space travel.

A new hibernation technology would slow time to a micron of a second, making a lifetimes journey pass by in a less than a minute. As soon as Kyle entered the device, the world outside had changed. Outside of the capsule, he finds that their ship has split open. Mould and vines cover the walls.

Kyle is able to wake several others before exploring the world and finding an Orc-like race to the north. And an Elf-like race to the south. The gods they worship seem unsettlingly familiar. Just where exactly did they land?

(There could be an obvious plot twist. I'll be trying to steer away from that and hopefully make an interesting one.)


I'm just planning on writing this casually on the side. Progress will be slow...
Also, I'm pretty bad at creating interesting characters. I'm thinking the protagonsit will be a cripple and a survivalist who's always positive. Never gives up, but that character can change too.

If any of you guys/gals have cool character ideas. I'd love to hear them. :)

Hey Lego! Thanks for checking out my story. As always, your feedback is greatly appreciated. I've listened to your advice and spaced it out more.

I realise it may seem a bit off for Mace to fight his human instincts, but we know all the jedi likely have them. Obi Wan may of been better at fighting them, but I like the idea that perhaps Mace was just better at hiding them. Better than a flamboyant Anakin Skywalker who'll just draw attention from everyone.

Can I ask for an example of an important story event I've summarized? I''ll use that and try and find the others I've butched up. One day I'll get better at writing. ><

If there's enough interest I'd continue with this story. I'd probably write it something like; Star Tek Universe helps star wars universe but also recruits their help in defeating a greater intergalactic menace. A horde of space-wizards similar to jedi that the Federation are not able to stop.

To fix that issue with '"Long ago" in a galaxy far far away...', I was thinking of perhaps having the ending with an aged Spoc. Living in a utopian future where everyone has force powers. He is reading a story to his grandson, (perhaps 'Kirk Kenobi'... cause... catchy...lol) He'll state that this tale happened a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away and in the end they all lived long and prospered happily ever after....

That or a dystopian post-apocalyptic future with something similar.

Is it ok for me to post pictures from different random websites\artists in my stories?

It gets a bit dark. I will be gong the Seinen route. I don't want him too bitter though. Not sure what to do with him. I'll keep writing. Let me know if hes too bitter/not bitter enough for the story as it progresses.

Started writing up book 3. Tried to keep the 'close up' and 'focus on' to a minimum. Haven't fixed the old books yet. Hope this style reads a bit better.

This is a filler story I'm thinking of integrating into the comic book. Its about a guy that lived around 2000 years ago that has the same power as the protagonist.

Death God
Spoiler

Long ago, "Gods" bickered and wars raged throughout the land. On a valley away from all the cities and towns lived a peaceful farmer working the lands alongside with his wife and young daughter.

For a while, life was good for the farmer. It was hard work, but he was able to provide for his family and after becoming accustomed to this regular daily lifestyle, they had started to feel like everything was in its right place.

Unfortunately greed exists in all men and the fertile land that he had settled had caught the eye of a nearby country. Fighting within the land began. Already, the farmer could see fire and smoke in the distance. He prayed it would not reach them.

By the time the snow began to fall, the enemy had found their way to his doorstep. They emptied their granary, stole their clothes, warm rugs, and blankets.

 He begged their General to leave them something.

'P-please sir. Spare some food for us... J-just enough to last the winter is all I ask...'

'There's enough specs on the floor for one of you to survive...' said the General.

‘One of us….?’

The farmer turned toward his family and watched in sickening shock as the soldiers ran them through with spears. Their bodies slumped to the floor like sacks of potatoes. It took a moment to sink in what had just transpired. Their dead eyes seemed to stare straight into him…

'We may have to pass through here again. Do make sure your Granary is filled up by then.' said the General.

'YOU BETTER KILL ME NOW BECAUSE I WILL REMEMBER YOUR FACE AND I WILL HUNT YOU FOR ALL OF ETERNITY!'

'I am Ares, the God of War. Do you really think you do what hundreds of thousands could not. Be thankful I am sparing your life peasant.'

The soldiers let out a chuckle and then they left. The farmer remembered each and every face amongst the thousands of soldiers and swore bloody vengeance upon all of them, deep down knowing how futile it may be. Vengeance however, would have to wait. First he would need to outlast the winter.

The remaining food would not even last a day, let alone the winter. He laughed at his cruel fate and empty words he could no longer keep. He apologised to his family and prayed he would see them in the next life.
A week passed and the effects of starvation were starting to show. His vision had started to fade and he looked toward his frozen family hungrily. He had contemplated it many times but had sworn off the idea many times over. 'My wife would want me to live.' he thought to himself before finally giving into his affliction.

Eating his family however, was not enough to pass 3 months  of winter and he felt his life force slip away. He knew he would go to hell for what he had just done and cursed the gods forcing him into such a state.

In his final moments, time began to slow. It then came to a complete stop. He found himself standing in the room looking down at his body, when suddenly a million faces appeared around him. He felt this strange uncontrollable desire to choose one. He chose one of the soldiers faces from his memory. A moment later, the corpse he was looking at had become that soldier.

He ate hungrily and gleefully at the second chance the devil had given him, devouring the soldiers body wholly. Though his body had never quite recovered when winter had ended, he set out anyway, carrying his farming scythe more as a walking stick than for any other useful purpose.

He visited burnt out towns, spoke to survivors and followed Ares trail of destruction. He finally caught up to him on an open battlefield under a thick fog. The farmer then casually wandered onto the field checking each wounded soldier lying on the floor. If they were one of the many faces he remembered, he would quickly dispatch of them with his Scythe. It did not matter to the farmer whether the enemy soldier had a small cut ,or were already dying, or how much they begged for mercy. His vengeance demanded blood...

After Ares army had driven their enemy away, they looked around to find an unusual looking hill behind the fog. They soon realised that it was no ordinary hill. As they drew closer. they found the farmer smiling at Ares while sitting on a massive pile of his men's corpses.

'You are a very stupid peasant to of travelled so far to die.' said Ares before giving the signal to attack.

 
100 of his men attacked the farmer. Petrified screams could be heard through the fog and then there was silence. Ares chuckled to himself only to see faintly through the mist,  the farmer sitting in the same position on a larger pile of corpses. He sent another squad in, only to suffer the same fate. More soldiers volunteered to take down the farmer. Ares turned them down.

'Archers on the ready!' yelled Ares
He looked around to see thousands of his men lined up and ready to shoot. 'Let's see what you do now you son of a bitch' Ares thought to himself.

Ares gave the signal and a hail of arrows rained and splintered into the shadowy figure in the fog. The fog cleared enough for Ares to see the farmer now sitting on a mountain of corpses. He looked around him to find most of his archery battalion missing. He turned towards the farmer and could now see his battalion of archers as bodies forming a bloody mountainous throne for the farmer before him.

'What is your power farmer!' said a frustrated Ares.

'Hmph, If you are indeed a god then you have nothing to fear.’

Ares charged toward the Farmer like a madman. His axe seemed to dance around him like a savage tornado. Just as Ares was about to strike he vanished and the farmer felt the cold steel of a dagger strike through his back and into his heart. His murderer smelled of rotten pig skin. He could hear the gleeful chuckle of his assailant moments before being sent to the place of a million faces. He picked Ares face that he had memorised so well and used it to replace his corpse. Moments later found himself looking down upon his enemy.

'So you killed my second in command and now I know your power' said a familiar voice from behind him.
He looked around to see Ares standing before him. Ares then changed his face to another and another.

'The God of war has many faces' says Ares. 'And it looks like your power needs a face to kill someone...'

'...And your power. It's to create illusions isn't...?' said the farmer

'What!? How did you... No-one has discovered my secret and lived!'

In a fit of rage, Ares leapt towards to farmer and cut out his eyes. The farmer frantically flailed about with his hands. One hand grabbed at the Ares dagger arm, the other pushed away at Ares face.  Ares then he stood back and watched as the farmer cried out in pain and anger.

'I wish I could kill you right now.... If you come after me again Grim Reaper, I will make you wish you were dead!' said Ares.

He then left the farmer alone to stew in his torment. Most people from that time would have given up, but the farmer had come too far to stop now. He bandaged his wound and examined the footprint of his murderer. 'A heavy right footprint. Too much weight on the heel. Smells of pigskin. Hmm, he has fake wooden leg that he covers in pig skin to look more human...'

He grabbed his scythe and slowly followed the footprints to a nearby town. The town was plagued with a perverted god that demanded virgins be regularly sacrificed at his temple. Although this would set him back, he decided he would pay this "God" a visit. The "God" tried to kill the farmer many times but the farmer knew this "God" had nothing that could kill him

With the “God” Backed into a corner, the farmer brought his now bony hand up to the "Gods" face and brushed over it with his fingertips. 'I see you' whispered the farmer, before taking the "Gods" life.

The town was liberated but also afraid of their new visitor. People locked their doors when he walked passed. This would make it hard to follow Ares but nonetheless he persisted.

Years went on and the farmer had become nothing by skin and bone, but he refused to die. Each town he visited treated him the same and every "God" he came across was merciless and cruel and subsequently dealt with in the same manner he had become so familiar with…


Eventually he tracked Ares himself down to a small remote cave in the woods. He could smell the rotten pigskin flesh and then he heard that familiar voice.

'So you finally found me.. This power is a curse. To have Death knocking at my door, always a hair lengths away… So how did you find me?' said Ares

'It's the strangest thing, when your on the brink of death. Every single detail of every moment becomes locked to your memory, your senses feel heightened. I remember the cold still air, the smell of broken flesh. I even remember being able to feel the tiny hairs on a single blade of grass. '
I followed your heavy right foot-print whenever I came across it. I eavesdropped whenever I heard townsfolk talk about a stranger that matched your characteristics, and finally there's that very distinct rotten smell you have that lead me here.'

'Thank you for so easily telling me your secrets. Now I will cut away your remaining senses and as a man of my word will MAKE YOU WISH YOU WERE DEAD!'

He heard Ares pull out a knife and then the knife glide through the air toward his shoulder. A small subtle movement and the knife whizzed past him.

'...It's funny. I thought taking your eyes would be taking the one power you could use against me, but what I did was take the one power I had against you.'

Ares equipped a knife in each hand and started running at the farmer.

'…Nonetheless, The Grim Reaper can't kill a god you son of a bitch!'
The farmer dives into the path of the charging Ares forcing one of the knives to plunge into his own heart.

Startled, Ares jumps back taking care not to be touched by the farmer in front of him.

'There are no gods in this world. There is however Death and it will always find you...'

'Y-you don't know my face. Y-you can't kill me'

'Oh, but I do know you...When you took my eyes, I put my hand on you. It wasn’t a desperate claw to push you away…I was making sure I could memorize every inch of your face. I could of killed you at any time, but I wanted to be there when I ended it! ...Goodbye Ares.

Moments later, the farmer looked down at the body of his enemy and ran his fingertips over the corpse.

'You have finally been avenged my sweet wife, my beautiful daughter.'

For the first time in a long time he cried a long cry.

He had rid the world of humans that acted like demons but he had become a like a demon himself. When the time came to draw his last breath, he chose his own face and died happily on his own terms.

Some called him the Grim Reaper. Others say that he was an angel that blessed the world with death where needed.

FanFics / A Flaw in the Force
« on: May 24, 2018, 07:44:53 PM »
Hi guys,
Hope its ok to post this here. This is a bit of star wars fanfic I wrote after watching episode 2. Hope you guys like it.

A Flaw in the Force
Chapter 1 – Best Kept Secret
Spoiler
It something they never taught you in jedi school. Something you never even learnt in secret, because the truth was that not even the teachers knew and the few they did, they did not want anyone else to find out.

The truth about the force... That if you live long enough, no matter  how devout, how honest and good inside you are, everybody goes dark…

The Jedi order are taught to contain their emotion. For all of his jedi life, Mace Windu had lived by that rule. It wasn’t until the events on Naboo that would change everything for him.

Mace grew up knowing only a few people on his home planet Haruun Kal. He was 4 years old when he met her. Probably the only other kid within 100 miles that was around his age. Her name was  Fiolla. She was a tomboy with tangled messy red hair, a toothy smile and freckles that joined a bit together at the nose. Turns out they both liked the same sorts of things. They would act out fighting in great wars and duelling as pretend Jedis. By the age of 6, the two were inseparable and wild. They would climb the highest trees and explore the deepest of jungles. The two now best friends thought they would be able to spend their whole life playing with each other, but then it happened…

Mace paced around Fiolla carefully watching her movements, constantly changing his grip on the wooden stick in his hand so as not to be caught off guard. His arm still stung in pain from the last successful blow she had landed on him.

‘You’re not going to move first this time?’ said Fiolla with a light chuckle.

‘Hmph… You were just lucky that on that last one.’ Retorted Mace.

‘Oh really?....Let’s see how you do against this!’

Fiolla changed the grip on her stick, turned her feet and pushed off from the dirt forcing her stick forward for an almighty lunge.

It was enough to catch Mace off guard.

‘Force push!’ yelled Mace as he held out his hand at her.

Fiolla went flying back, rolling several times as she hit to floor.

‘Wow…nice acting Fiolla. You almost had me convinced…’

‘I wasn’t…’ said Fiolla who then fell quickly silent as she slowly brought up her hand. The stick she was using had impaled all the way through her right hand. The bottom of the stick had begun to turn a pale red. Fiolla let out pained scream. Uncontrollable tears rolled down her face and she bolted away back toward her home.

‘FIOLLA!, FIOLLAA!!’ yelled Mace, but she just kept running. ‘I’m sorry…’ said Mace softly.

A week later, the ship arrived to take Mace off to Jedi Academy. His parents gave their last goodbyes. Mace could see Fiolla in the distance with a bandaged hand being gripped by her parents.
Fiolla wrestled free and ran towards Mace. Her parents chasing shortly behind.

‘I…I’m sorry about your hand…’ said Mace.

‘I’m sorry too... I shouldn’t of told them about your power. Said Fiolla. Her voice quaking. Her eyes barely containing the watery tears.

‘Promise me we’ll meet again’ said Fiolla

‘I promise…’

Fiolla gives Mace a warm hug

‘I heard that a Jedi never makes a promise they are not certain they can keep… ’

Fiollas parents catch up and cautiously pull her away from Mace and begin escorting her away. She turns around and smiles.

‘See you around Mace Windu.’ She said.

Mace waves at her as she walks away until she is nothing but a featureless silhouette.

A man in a ragged brown cloak gives Mace a light push on his back.

‘It’s time to go young Padawan.’

Once aboard the ship, the man in the cloak takes his hood off and introduces himself. He has a black wiry beard that is starting to gray around the edges.

‘It’s good to have you with us. My name is Sirius. Please don’t be nervous. You’re going to a school to unlock your potential. It’s going to let you see the universe in a whole new light.

Mace looks at him strangely.

‘…It’s a good thing. Trust me.’

When they finally arrived at the academy, Mace couldn’t believe his eyes. Kids around his age juggling blocks with their mind, others were bouncing around walls and rooftops with incredible 20 meter high jumps. As they walked inside, he saw a classroom room where students were making sculptures out of water.
In the hallway, another cloaked individual walks up to Sirius and taps him on the shoulder.

‘Sirius, the c-’

‘Council wants to see me. Brilliant… I’ll be right over.’

As Sirius heads past the individual, he lets out a deep sigh, before heading toward a large room full of Jedi. Some holograms sat in place of the empty seats.

Before entering, he knelt down to the boy.

‘Stay here young one. I’ll be back soon.’

He entered the room and was met with a look of disdain by several of the council members.

‘So you’ve brought a new padawan. How old is he…?’

‘Well he’s 6 bu-‘

‘Is this boy not too old for Jedi training? ‘

‘Oh no. This boy has been training since he was 6 months old boy from Jedi Knight Doth Rhaal.’

‘That Jedi flunky. I thought he was dead.’

‘What of his parents?’
 
‘Dead… Yes, unfortunately they died in the jungle, before he got to know them. I can assure you there won’t be any emotional attachment that would distract him from our jedi teachings. He just needs a teacher.’

‘Powerful in the force I sense. Send him to me, you will. Test him, I must.’

‘As you wish, Master Yoda.’

‘Thankyou Sirius, you are dismissed…’

Sirius grabs Mace from the hallway and takes his to a quiet area of the academy.

‘Mace, can you show me you force power?’

‘I can, but I don’t want to hurt anyone...’

‘It’s ok Mace, I’m a Jedi Master. Show me what you can do…’

‘Alright….’ Says Mace ‘Force push!’ he yells as he holds out his hand towards Sirius.

The power was enough to make Sirius stumble back a few steps despite being ready for it.
‘Wow, that was very good young padawan, but you don’t need to shout it out like you’re some wizard casting a spell. This is the force, not some hocus-pocus magic.’

‘Sorry sir….’

‘Don’t ever apologise to anyone for you gift! Come, let’s go off to meet Yoda. He was my teacher and soon he will likely be yours. You are in good hands now Mace.’

He leads Mace to Yodas quarters and escorts him inside before carrying on his way. Another jedi with a scraggly beard and long blonde hair approaches. Sirius knew him well. His old friend Qui-Gon Jin

‘So, I heard that whole story you just told the council… Were you being ‘Serious?’ said Qui-Gon chuckling under his breath.

‘Oh very good... Making fun of my name again. Very droll. To be honest Qui-gon, it was a bit of a white lie, but the jedi council and their rules are simply absurd. How can we be expected to train babies. You’d think the academy was a day-care centre. Will you keep this secret?

‘I can think of worse things you’ve told me. I will take this secret to my grave Master Dooku…’

Chapter 2 – Chance Encounter
Spoiler
Mace grew becoming a devout disciple and keeper of the Jedi code. After many years, Mace had seen many missions and attained the rank of Jedi Master and had crafted a sabre from a unique amethyst like the one from his dreams. He was now one of the most trusted and respected of the Jedi Council.

At this time Mace was now a man of 42 years old. The council had kept him very busy on missions to keep the balance. More so recently, which had made Mace suspicious that something far more sinister was happening.
A recent mission lead him to Naboo to meet with Queen Amidala. She had many faithful servants. He almost didn’t notice her at first among them, but then there were those freckles, barely visible under all the makeup, but they were there, joining together at the nose. The most unique he had seen in all the galaxy.

She instantly recognised him and smiled politely. Mace nearly tripped as he walked past, but then used the force to make an immediate and discreet recovery. He had never before seen her in this light. So grown up.. She looked beautiful.

He sent her a message on a  piece of paper using the force to kite the message along the floor out of sight of the others. On it was a request to meet in secret on the outskirts of the city on the hill that kissed the stars.
That night he waited patiently on the hill. He tried to meditate to pass the time, but his thoughts were a jumbled mess. He kept asking himself if he gave the right details. What if she didn’t show…What if she does show… What does he say to her…. This is not how a jedi should act...

His scrambled thoughts were quickly silenced by her arrival. She wore white gloves and a pale blue dress that seemed to glimmer in the moonlight at each fold. Her red hair rolled over one brow partially hiding her emerald coloured eyes.

‘You look good Mace.’ She said with a sly smile.

Fiolla stumbled over her dress as she made her way towards him. Mace reacted quickly and grabbed her hand before she fell. He hand felt solid and unnatural. He quickly realised what had happened.

‘Your hand… I’m sorry…’
‘Oh. I didn’t mean for you to... My hand never fully recovered from that day, so my folks had it replaced. Don’t be sorry though! I think it’s kinda kick-ass!

‘If I’d known I’d…’

‘Quit Jedi-ing?’

‘I would!’

‘…If you didn’t have strict Jedi rules I’d kiss you right now. Please know I could never ask that of you.’

Mace leaned in closer and whispered ‘That’s exactly why I would do it.’ He said and smiled.

She gave him a quick kiss on the lips.

‘I’m sorry, I…’

Mace grabbed her and gave her a kiss right back.

The rest of the night they spent chatting and giggling. Talking about their old times. It was the first time in his life he had felt like he truly had something worth living for. Mace had fallen in love.

…It was also the first time he had broken the code. He had always followed the rules that was taught to him. To always keep his emotions in check, but now unchained from those restrictions, Mace had never felt more in tune with the force.

However, there was something deeply unsettling that had come with it. This newly acquired force sensitivity had allowed him to sense a rising in the dark side.  Subsequently Mace began to lose sleep.

He continued to live his life playing the part of the of the strict jedi master, all the while meeting with his beloved in secret. A few months later and Fiolla was now pregnant with twins.  Life was pretty good, however Mace could sense the dark presence growing stronger still. He decided it was no longer safe for his princess, especially now she was expecting…

The next few weeks, Mace spent preparing for the worst. Fiolla didn’t see much of him in this time, but when she did, he looked more and more haggard, until the day came where he asked her to meet her once again on the hill that kissed the stars.

She climbed up the hill that night happy to finally be able to see him again, but when she did see him, Mace did not look so happy.

‘Fiolla, I need you to do something.’

‘Of course. You name it!’

‘I need you to leave.’

‘What! …Are you breaking-‘

‘No no. Of course not.. It’s just... I sense it no longer being safe here. ‘

‘Mace, are you serious? Your starting to scare me…’

‘Listen, Tomorrow morning I need you to go to the starport. They’ll be a man named Londor. He’ll be wearing a sweater the colour of my saber. Take this with you.

Mace hands her a large bag.

‘…Its got some essentials. Some recordings I made for the kids in case…’

‘In case what!? Your coming back to us right!?... Promise me your coming back…’

‘Fiolla, you know I can’t make a promise I’m not sure I can ke-‘

‘Promise me!’

‘I…I promise.’

‘Alright. I…I’ll see you soon Mace Windu.’

Fiolla smiled and did her best to hold back the tears. She gave him a kiss on the cheek, before the two parted ways.

Not long after, Maces suspicions were confirmed. A fellow Jedi named Anakin Skywalker had advised him that the Chancellor was in fact Darth Sidious. Preparing for the worst, Mace gathered some elite Jedi knights to confront and arrest the Chancellor, but Sidious was not to be underestimated. 

The jedi group crashed into Palpatines quarters.

"In the name of the Galactic Senate of the Republic, you're under arrest, Chancellor." Boomed Mace.

The Chancellor gave them a wicked stare and the jedi lit up the lightsabers in response.
“Are you threatenting me, Master Jedi?”

With a quick flick of the wrist the chancellor had already list his saber and struck down one Jedi. His saber giving off a ominous red glow. A faint smell of burnt flesh filled the air as the surviving jedi paced around the Darth lord.

For a moment the remaining jedi succumbed briefly to the dark side. Seeing their comrade and long-time friend slain before their eyes was enough to trigger a rage that had silently been building up inside of them.
They lept at the chancellor with beastly ferocity, but they too were struck down just as quickly as the first, leaving only Mace and Palpatine staring each other down as they circled each other over the burnt corpses.
The chancellor made the first move, using the force to fly through the air like a bullet. It reminded him of Fiollas great lunge at him and also why he needed to fight on. With a quick shuffle of his feet, Mace narrowly dodges the blow. He swings at Palpatine as he passes. Their sabres connect with this squeal like the sound of lava on meeting ice.

In his frustration, Palpatine begins attacking in a frenzy and though he fought like a demon and moved like a god but Maces will was stronger. He needed to survive, because there was someone waiting for him and there was a promise he needed to keep.

As victory was his grasp, it quickly dissipated as one of their most trusted jedi disciples betrayed him. Anakin Skywalker severed his lightsabre arm, giving Mace no way to defend himself.  The Chancellor quickly taking the opportunity to burn him with lightning. Mace felt himself falling from the skyscraper. Each muscle in his body had merged together in a sticky burnt mess. He knew most of his nerve endings had been fried but he still felt an indescribable pain.

He mumbled his final words to the rapidly shrinking clouds above. ‘I’m sorry Fiolla….’

On a distant planet, the pregnant Fiolla felt her heart snap and this overwhelming feeling of loss come over her. She knew only too well what it meant. Her beloved would no longer come back to her and the universe was no longer safe…

Chapter 3 – The Windu Twins
Spoiler
Years later, Fiolla and her twins remain in hiding. They do not visit any towns speak with any other apart from themselves. They live off the land and off the grid. Both children were blessed with an affinity to the force.

A freckled boy with fiery messy red hair much like herself but with an even fiery temperament. She named him “Muave” after his father’s beloved saber. Fiolla worries he may venture down the wrong path.

His twin sister would be his polar opposite. She had mocha coloured skin, tidy long black hair and was extremely studious and devout. Fiolla named her Hope and prayed they could stay safe until they all grew old together.

“Guys, its around that time…Are you ready to do some training with your father?” said Fiolla.

“Yes!” said Hope.

“Yeah… I guess” said Muave noticeably less enthused.

Mace, being someone that was always prepared had recorded numerous holo-tapes in case he should never return. They contained lessons on using the force, a saber and a training droid.

Fiolla hated the thought her children might one day have to use this training to fight for their lives. It was, however nice that she could see him again, even if it was only a recording.

During their practice, Muave took a break and tapped Fiolla on the shouler…

“Mum?”

“What is it Dear?”

“What was Dad like? I know we have these holos…. But what was he really like?’

“Well…I guess I’d say that your father was a good man.. Well, he maybe loved his sabre a little too much...no, jokes aside he was a great Jedi, an even greater husband and I think he would have made an even better father. I wish you could of met him. He would of been so proud of you both.”

Muave gave a wide toothless grin before running back to his training.


Many years passed…
Muave is now a fiery teen with a quick temper. Hope does her best to keep him in check. Both have come far with their training, but Hope has surpassed Muave in force attunement, much to his disgruntlement.

For all these years they were able to remain hidden, but today is different. Fiolla lie sick in bed, the medicine they need is in town. She asks Hope to go and to make sure she stay inconspicuous.

“Why can’t I go?! I’ve never been to the city!” says Muave

“I need someone to look after me.”

“Hope can stay and I’ll go!”

“Enough!*Cough, *cough. Fiolla go! Remember what I told you.”

Muave angrily storms out the room. Hope kisses Fiolla on her forehead before setting out.

“I’ll be back soon mum. Take care of yourself.”

After half a days trek, Hope makes it to the city. Never had she seen so many people before. So many creatures and markets. It was a little overwhelming at first, but she quickly became enamoured by it. However, she remembered what her father had taught her. That she needed to keep her emotions in check and she had an important mission she needed to get done.

As she waded through to the city centre she couldn’t help but feel eyes were upon her. She quickened her pace and made her pathing increasingly sporadic. Her suspicions were confirmed as she felt a presence follow her down an empty alleyway.

As the pursuer got close, she pounced forcing the individual to the ground. The impact like a heavy log.

“*pant, *cough. What’s the big idea sis?”

“Muave! What the hell are you doing following me!?”

“heh, Thought you could use the help. Two jedis are better than one after all.”

“*sigh. Fine just stay out of trouble. “

As the two make their way to the medicine shop, Hope notices Muave eating on an apple.

“Hey, where did you get that? Did you use what I think?”

“Relax sis, the force is meant to be used for good. Getting an apple to feed someone hungry, ie… me, is a good deed.”

“Oh Muave… please. Just promise me you wont use your power again.”

“geez sis, its not like I-“

“please, just don’t do it again!”

“Alright, fine…”

Muave kept his word and did not use his powers the rest of the day, but it was too late. Someone noticed and the word about this got out to a most horrifying individual…

Chapter 4 – Hope to despair
Spoiler
As they made their way back home, they reminisced about the town and all the people there. They talked about going back there once mum was better.

When they neared home, they noticed signs that something was wrong. There was an extra set of footprints among theirs. A tracker had traced their steps. When they made it home, they found the window was smashed, the door was broken in. Muave felt his chest tighten and his heart start to beat faster as they cautiously made their way closer.

“Come in, come in…” said an unfamiliar voice.

“I know you’re out there. I can feeeel your presceeence…”

“Come in if you miss your mommy…”

Hope grabbed a stick while Muave grabbed a rock. The two cautiously entered the house, only to find a black skinned Twi’lek with ruby coloured eyes holding a knife to their mother’s throat.

“Tut, tut, no need for the hostilities…Drop your weapons.

Their hearts sank at the image before them. After a short pause, they dropped their weapons.
“What do you want!?” shouted Hope

The Twi’lek held some communication equipment up to his mouth.

“I’ve got them. A goody too shoos the mum named hope, and the other named Muave, a potential candidate.”
Fiolla looked at them wearily. It was obvious from her eyes that he had tortured her for information.

“Run” Gasped Fiolla.

“Ruuuunn!!!” she screamed as she stabbed the Twi’lek in the leg with a fork.

The mum pushed away from his grasp, but the Twi’lek simply held out his hand in the air and she was frozen. A subtle movement of his fingers caused a sickly sounding snap from Fiollas neck. Her lifeless body slumped to the floor.

Without a moments hesitation , Hope pulled her fathers saber from nearby and began savagely striking at the Twi’lek. She gave him barely enough time to pull out his own saber to defend himself. He was a strong and experienced sith combatant but she was a monster.

She attacked in a frenzied state using only one hand to strike at him with her saber. The twi-lek was barely able to fend off her attacks by gripping his saber with two hands, however Hopes free hand enabled her to use the force to pull cutlery into his undefended sides. He had never seen someone so in tune with the force.
Moments later, he lay at her feet in a bloody mess. Knives, forks and all sharp instruments had punctured through his legs, back and arms. He looked like a porcupine of cutlery. Hope had missed all his major arteries, because she had wanted him to suffer.

“Hmfph…*aaah. Your too late… *ah…They’re already coming for you…haha”

The whirring sounds of TIE fighters could be heard whizzing past outside.

“Run from here, Muave. Run and hide! I’m not done here yet!”

Her voice had become a deep croak. The darkness had crept into her. He watched briefly as she began to slowly burn the attackers leg off causing an agonized scream from the Twi’lek.

Muave ran barely able to see forward from the tears that covered his eyes. He looked up to see a great monolith of a star destroyer in orbit above the planet like an unnatural sword shaped moon. He hid in the trees as storm troopers swarmed past him and even though he was now miles from home, he could still hear the Twi’leks tortured screams.

Storm troopers arrived outside the twins home to the be greeted by the smell of burnt twi’lek flesh. They surrounded the home and then a small elite group headed inside.

“Are you next!?” said Hope maliciously

The squad leader found her leaning on a severed leg. A soft whimpering could be heard in the corner of the room. There they found the remains of the twi’lek, just a torso and his head crying weakly. It caused the squad leader the need to immediately run out, take off his helmet and throw up.

The storm troopers that surrounded the house outside began to shuffle aside leaving a gap. From the gap, a mysterious Sith Lord appeared. He was shrouded in black rags that covered his body and face. He walked like someone who could barely stand. If it weren’t for his entourage, one might easily mistake him from a street beggar, but it also this appearance that made him easily recognisable as one of the upper echelons of the sith.
The Sith lord began hobbling toward the house seemingly getting stronger with each step. He enters the home to find five soldiers pointing a gun toward Hope.

“Tell your men to lower their weapons or I’ll cut their arms off.”

“Soldiers, lower your weapons!”

The soldiers looked toward each other before one of them gave a subtle nod. They slowly put them down.
“You may leave.” Said the Sith lord

“Sir I-“

The lord glared at him causing the soldiers to quickly scurry away. They had learnt the hard way not to question a siths orders, yet he had almost made the mistake. They left the house thankful there were no fatal repercussions as a result.

Inside the home, the sith gleefully inspected the premises.

“I love what you’ve done with the place.”

“So you’re the one that thinks they’re going to kill me.”

“On the contrary, I want you to join us.”

Hopes saber lit up like the sound of a hurricane in a wind tunnel. The next second she was attacking the lord with the same ferocity she had previously displayed. She was strong, perhaps even stronger than him, but the lord had a few tricks at his disposal.

He snapped a sink faucet and used the force to disperse the water. After a few narrow dodges from Hopes saber, he crackled lightning from his fingertips leaving her incapacitated and twitching on the floor.

“I think I understand you young jedi. You want to change the cruel fate of the universe, but you need power to do it. Join us and you will attain that power. The power of the dark side…”

“*gasp…I’ll do it… I’ll join you.”

“Oh? I expected you’d need more convincing. Welcome to the Empire Muave”

“It’s Hope. My name is Hope…”

Chapter 5 – A Galaxy far far away…
Spoiler
Hope joining their ranks was a great prize for the Sith. They had expected an ill-tempered rebellious jedi to join, but not Hope which intel had advised, was the polar-opposite of this. It meant that perhaps someone that was seemingly incorruptible could be corrupted and the potential for Sith recruitment could reach new heights of power.  They just needed to find a weak point. It also meant this Sith lord was one step closer to proving his theory.

The Sith Lord stepped on board his personal shuttle with Hope in tow. A storm trooper places a bloody rug-sack on one of the seats ships, taking care to strap it tightly in for the ride. Garbled whimpering can be heard coming from the sack.

“Oh, hush now Zuhuca. You certainly did a number on him.”

Hope stares quietly at the Sith Lord.

“Right, I suppose should introduce myself. My name is Magus. Forgive me if I am a little guarded around you. It is very rare for a jedi to convert so readily.”

Hope remains still, hiding all emotion.

“Your brother will come to the dark side…in time.”

“You better stay away from him.”

“Even if we don’t find him, he’ll turn. We all do eventually.”

“Why do you sith have the need to lie?”

“Oh? Let me tell you a story. I was just a young boy at the jedi academy when I first noticed it…”

“There was a jedi master there. Very short but looked up to by everyone as if he were 10 feet tall. His name was Yoda. You probably know of him. It seems everybody does. I was just a boy at the time when I noticed it. Yoda was a very composed and accomplished teacher, but whenever something didn’t go his way, he would retreat to his quarters briefly before returning. One day, I deliberately broke something of his. He then retreated and I followed him…

In his personal quarters, he began to do the most peculiar thing, He clutched at his head and it looked like he was screaming, but without making a sound. He then took a deep breath and began counting backwards. He then headed back to the classroom like nothing had ever happened, but curious I was, so I did it again and I kept doing it. Yoda began to practice saying the alphabet backwards. Soon he began to speak sentences backwards, then one day when he came to class, that had become the way that he spoke.

And here’s my theory. Everybody goes dark. Yoda knew this and he was already petering on the edge. His simple meditation trick was only going to take him so far. The sith annihilation of the Jedi order would be enough to push him over…

He hated that he had to run and hide. He hated they killed his pupils and was angry that they destroyed the jedi order he had worked so hard to build.

Yoda knew he would go dark and exiled himself on Dagobah, destroying his ship to make sure he would not join the sith and their destructive reign on the galaxy. For 2 decades he remained there, tainted by the darkness, full of rage. For a long time Yoda fought his dark side urges, before confronting it in a cave on Dagobah. He fought his dark side self but realised that it was not something that could be beaten with sheer strength or will. It was only when he accepted it as a part of him that he could find peace.”

“You sure do talk a lot Sith.”

“Hmm, I’m still not sure why you’ve joined us, but you will see our way in time…”

Years pass…
The war between the Rebellion and the Empire have made it to the furthest reaches of the galaxy. The rebel fleet has been all but annihilated. The empire have sent a massive ground assault to destroy the last rebel stronghold.

Hope moves across the battlefield like wind on water. Each ripple like a tidal wave of destruction. With the sword as her shield and the force as her weapon, her enemies fall to the floor like leaves in autumn. She roams around the battlefield with a single purpose, and then she senses it. However, it is not on the battlefield as expected. She follows her sense to the outskirts of the fight and finds a dimly lit cave. There she finds him…

His face is still scarred from the last confrontation she had with him. Over a thousand woman and children huddle together behind him.

“Hello my…dear…brother”

“Hello Hope…”

“My name is Darth Relius now. I thought I told you that last time, or did my lightning fry a few too many brain cells.”

“Please, sister…do what you will with me, but these people. They’re the family of the soldiers I’ve been tasked to protect. They have nothing to do with any of this…”

“I wish I could, but Rebels breed rebellions. They too must be destroyed.

“…why are you doing this?”

“Hmm… At first it was to avenge our parents, but after thinking more about it, I realised the Empire will keep going until someone changes it from the inside, but then after a while I finally realised what they are trying to do.”

“…”

“The ships we build, the new technology we create. It serves one purpose. To fuel a never-ending war. Even trade and cargo ships have shields and weapons for taking on laser fire. Before the empire, there was constant in-fighting amongst various groups in the galaxy. What if there was only one group?”

“You don’t see it do you?”

“What’s that?”

“You’ve allowed yourself to become a pawn of the dark-side. You were too far gone to notice.”

“I admit the Empire does some horrible things, things I wish never to have to repeat, but a Universe united, even under a horrible, rule is better than one divided.”

“Heh.. I always use to think you were the smart one of use…”

Their sabres lit up almost synchronously and they began to pace around each other carefully looking for any subtle movements. A twitch of one of their fingers sends them both into a dance of deadly acrobatics and sabre flurries.

Muave sensed an attack from coming from elsewhere in the cave and with lightning reflexes, brought his sabre in to deflect the hit.

The next moment, he felt his body falling to the floor. None of limbs responded. He was completely paralysed. Was this another force user or did his sister land a blow Muave thought to himself. He did not think he was injured. He could not feel any pain. A moment later and his sister suffered the same fate, falling down on the floor next to him with a thud.

“What did you do to me!?” Hope Sneered.

“You mean it wasn’t you? Than who th-“

‘It’s strange. I didn’t even sense anything. Is this a master that can hide their presence?’ Hope thought to herself.

“I’ve been watching you for a while now, and its impressive what you boys can do with this force, but there is something that you are missing…” says the individual

“Who are you!!??...” screamed Hope

‘Do you wonder why you think the force gives you power when you embrace the darkness in you? All the hate. All the rage….?’

“…Because it does give me power!" says Hope defiantly.

“Yes! I think your probably right!”

“What!? Just finish me you Sith son of a b*tch” screams Muave.

“I’m not Sith and I’m not a Jedi. I’m just a guy that wants to give you some advice. …See I think you’ve both got it wrong. A Jedi is told not to embrace their anger, Sith embrace only what gives them more power.”

“…Your point!??”

“There are clues in the force. Your emotions may give you power and there is a whole spectrum of human emotion. Don’t deny these emotions. Embrace them all. Become who you were meant to be! It will make you one with the force and the force will be one with you.

Hope, I know deep down your trying to do the right thing. We saw you try to rescue those people on Endor, and that you’re afraid. You’re afraid of the Empire and what they will do if the war drags on.”

“Who do you think you are! You think you know me!?”

Hope tries to hide her tears but because she is unable to move her limbs yet, she tries desperately to dig her face into the ground.

‘So, you’ve been watching us, then you of all should know… The alliance is in ruins! There are barely a handful of ships left that can fight and their forces number in the tens of thousands. What good will a few more ships do?’ says Muave

‘They’re not your ordinary run of the mill ships…’ says the stranger.

‘Who are you!?’ says Hope

‘Where did you come from!?’ says Muave

‘My name is James T. Kirk. I come from a galaxy far, far away…’

To be continued…

I know its quite long and I'm not the best writer. Hope you still all like it. Let me know what you think.  ;D

 I am passionate about it and do want to give my best shot. I'm a bit worried about my writing skills and character development are not so great. I did rework the 1st book a bit a few days ago.
Will should be a bitter teen. He's angry at this new world because he suspects the supers with the big egos were somehow responsible for his parents disappearance. But, I also don't want to make him stupid. He knows there are some out there that could kill him with a *snap of their fingers.
The scene where he punches the bully. I added that he leaves a paper trail for teachers to come and rescue him.

I'm not sure if you'd be willing to or not, but I'm keen for any suggestions on fixing Will. I can give you a google docs link or just continue discussing it here. Checked out your tumblr page btw. I like your 2  posts on April 2nd. Keep it up!  :D

Hi KeanFox. Really appreciate you taking the time to grind through it. I do agree with you. I have way too many "Close up of" and "Focus on". I was thinking that this could be up to the artist to illustrate “intense glare”
 or “worry” depending on how they think it should go, but really I’ve just been too lazy. >< I’ll fix it up soon.


Thanks for your input TEA. :D
I had the idea before MHK, but never got around to putting it all on paper.
I’ll summarise where I’m planning to head with it. I don’t want you all grinding through script that’s not enjoyable.  I've been a bit umming and arrrring about when to reveal his power, because it does have impact to the story. I've put my summary of the next few books below. I will have flashbacks to the chaos in book 4 but I wont inlcude int the summary. Let me know what you think. If its interesting enough and worthwhile pursuing, I'll look into hiring an artist, otherwise I have some ideas for other stories I can start on.
Mind if I ask what off comments might need changing for Will?

One day, she meets the first boy that is kind to her. They talk to each other from behind a door. The girl making sure never to show her face. The two become friends and eventually the boy convinces her to meet. Surprisingly he is fine with her appearance. He draws her a small picture of them and tells her that its more than just how we look, it’s a memory frozen in time and in this memory, I’m happy. I hope you are too. He gives her the picture and a tiny locket to fit in.
One day the girl hears whispers in her head telling her to go up the mountain. The boy comes with her and they discover some of the missing townspeople. A creature with a goats head, humanoid torso, bulls legs and a lizards tail has been experimenting on them.
The creature captures them and does horrify experiments. The experiments bring the boy on the brink of death but with the girl it unlocks her power. She is now cured of elephantiasis and can be recognised as Elsie. The boys last words to her are that she is beautiful, but that she was always was.
Elsie breaks free and is able to stop the creature, she thinks…
A volcano erupts engulfing the island in lava. Elsie eventually breaks free of her molten ash prison. Still hearing the whispers, she looks for a way to stop the creature. Years pass. Elsie is getting better at her power. She is able to morph her body at will. While working undercover in the assassins building, she discover a potential super that can stop the creature. She burns the building to the ground before departing.
First day of school.
Elsie clutches her locket while approaching the school…

I had an idea for a story about a guy who's good at everything but extremely gullible.

For example... His friends take him speed dating, but tell him its a staring competition where blinking is allowed but tallied at the end. If a contestant forfeits a game and wants to vouch for you, they hand over a special 10 digit number that can be used at the end of the game.


I'm not so good at comedy. Hope someone can have some fun with it.  ;D

Hmmm.. So, all of this sites moderators are stuck in a sort of matrix? Their godly admin powers are starting to wear thin as they make their way to the portal to escape or confront the one behind it all... Someone or something that has the power of spam...?

Interested to see what you write next! :)

Kean fox, that's pretty spot on for what I'm going for. :biggrin:

legomaestro;  Thanks so much for you reply and feedback! :clapping:  helps a lot

1.

Panel 1. In 1992...? the first super was discovered. (Chaotic scene of police and military trying to control a super.)

- Is it a question or definite?  Also, interesting to go so far back in time.
Not 100% on the timeline. Still want to work out the kinks. I like the way Naruto and Sin no Taizen flash back to events before and want to implement that into my story

2.
STORY OVERVIEW CAPTION
40 years ago, the whole world's population unexplainably developed super powers. The resulting chaos caused goverment's to collapse and society to break down in several countries. Now law and order are back through tough enforcement and early assessment of powers for High School teenagers.
20 years later and the entire world’s population had unexplainably developed some kind of power. The result of this dramatic shift caused government’s to collapse and society to break down in several countries. It took another 20 years before a fragile order was restored.

- Okay, usually not a fan of this sort of thing, but to be honest it's a very reliable way to label a story and to tell the audience what exactly they're getting into. I know the kind of story you're talking about, but looking forward to some new twists to the tale and the like.
There will be a reason why everyone developed a power, which i'll cover in the last arc. I kind of want to scrap that start and have a few pages dedicated to showing what happened. I don't like the overview thing

3.
Panel 1.
Caption: Present Day
Will attempts to bring out powers as he watches supers  with different powers outside playing.

- What powers? Ice powers? Fire? Is he holding out his hands? Is he closing his eyes and concentrating? Is he trying to move a house plant?
Will doesn't know what powers he has, So I was thinking we have him trying to push a lamp from a distance with his hand maybe, then stare it down then do some strange power ranger gestures or something....


4. Teenagers are assessed based on their power and their usefulness to society.

- Haha it's sad because it's true irl...
Hehe. I kinda want to flesh this out more too. The types of test they will do, I guess similar to one punch man super assessing.

5. God: World Building and exploration

- Curious about what you mean by 'World Building`?
Hmm.. I think I might change that. IT sounds cheesy. My initial thought was that  its a school for deifics so powerful, they can literally build new worlds or destroy them.
*Major spolier warning
Spoiler
The test at school is to assess if an individual is too powerful, if they are, they get sent to a "special school." Basically a highest security underground prison in the world kept in check by one that can nullify powers.
[/i]


6.
Demi: Enforcement and military
Dragon: Construction and Engineering
Mutant: Communication and Miscellaneous
Mildly powered: All remaining jobs.

- There seems to be no jobs for security/war/emergency services? Would a Mutant ever be a doctor? Couldn't a Dragon be useful in stopping natural disasters?
Very good point. I need to rethink this. Really appreciate the input


7. There is no known case in the world of someone without a super power but 'Will Livingston' seemed to have no gift.

- If Will is the one and only person without an ability then shouldn't he be famous or something? If his condition is rare then that's ok, but if he really is the only human in the entire planet to have no ability then that would be interesting, but you'd also need to think about how he's viewed by the public.
Good point. I'll change it to a rare condition, but not unusual for people to develop powers late maybe. Will is extremely late being 16 yo without any

8. Panel 5. Black hole
WILLS CAPTION
... all I can see is this void.

- Calling it: This must be his ability
Spoiler
Haha. You're half right, and I think its something a lot of people will think too. The void in his dream is a result of someone elses power. Someone has put a block on one of his memories.

9. Radio: Describes Wills character.

- What is Will's character?
hmm. I should of thought more about him. Maybe a bit lanky. Perhaps the loss of his parents has made him a bit emo

10. Bully 1: People like you have no place in society.
- So yeah like I said in 7. you should probably say he's one of the few cases without ability rather than the only one.
Fixing this in my word doc now. Appreciate it!  :thumbsup:
11.Bully 2: You boys should do society a favour and just kill yourselves
-douche
Not sure if this is a good idea, but I'm planning a backstory for most characters including this one to show why they are like they are. This one, because of his father, the father because of something that happened before the deific era.
12. Yuto: That guy with the teleport ability. His name is Franky O'Hare and he is as violent as they come.
- Will managed to punch down someone with the ability to teleport? Yikes.
Good catch. I need to flesh this out more. Will would likely be a moron to pick a fight in this day an age. Maybe I'll have him leaving a rubbish trail  for the patrolling teacher, and the punch will be because he's caught the bully off guard plus people develop their powers from 10-12 so the bully wont have god-like control of it... yet

13. PAGE EIGHT. (6 Panels)
Panel 2. Teacher starts scribbling maths equations. Will starts getting sleepy.

- This is actually a 2 panel description. There are other examples of this across the script, so try to really pay attention to this. If it's too hard to visualize, then try writing a pure tv script form before going for panels.
Thanks. good suggestion. I think i've brain-farted a few of these. 
14. PAGE TEN (6 Panels)
Panel 1. Will has a dumbfounded look on his face while scratching he head.
Will: Er..El..sie? I think you have the wrong class. They don't teach that here. Not in class F...
Panel 2. The classroom door is suddenly kicked open.
SFX:
Panel 3. From the doorway steps out a 12 year old girl holding a gun
12 year old girl: Who here is William Livingston?
Panel 4. Elsie is smitten by the girl.
Elsie: Aww, it's a cute little girl. What's your name sweetie?
12 year old: Out of my face bitch!

- Damn, have some chill plz.


15. 12 year old: To think they give me a Class F flunkie for my first S rank mission. I should of done this sooner.
- Um... Assassin-chan? Why are you revealing so much about your target again?
Good point. I'll have her thinking it and not revealing as much.

16. Panel 2. 12 year old sprays bullets. Elsie takes the bullets for Will forcing both Elsie and Will out the classroom window.
- Another scene that compresses too many actions in one panel.
yup yup

17. PAGE THIRTEEN (7 Panels)
Panel 1. Will semi-worried and confused.
Will: Er... Should we call a doctor?
Guy leaning against wall: She'll be fine.
Panel 2. 12 year old jumps out window guns blazing.
Panel 3. Will back steps narrowly avoiding bullets.
Panel 3. 12 year old shoe soles turn into springs.
Panel 4. 12 year old lands dramatically
Panel 5. 12 year old points the gun at Will and shoots but gun is empty.
SFX:
Click
Panel 6. 12 year old begins morphing gun to something else
Panel 7. Gun becomes a blade


- Great action here!


18. Panel 4. Sampson is sulking
Sampson says softly: My favourite red bicycle...
- Hahaha

19. Ethan: Her name is Samara Jane. Code name Gun-Girl. Whoa!... She's a Demi-level assassin hired by a special government task force to take our potential threats. Her power is to control metal she touches. She's been trained in the use of all firearms. She doesn't know why Will was the target. Heh. She thinks I’m a moron because…. Oh *censored*!

- Pretty useful ability there.

20. Panel 5. Ethan sprays hose down Elsies throat.
SFX:
Gargle

-wtf
hehe.... yeeaaahh.... So I was thinking of making a wolverine type character. Super-fast metabolism. Can regenerate fast, but I didn't want something from nothing. If there's a hole through  her, she needs something  to consume to fill it, in this case water... I have made this character a bit weird tho. Hopefully not too much because she's kind of important and I don't want people to dislike her.

21. PAGE TWENTY-FOUR (6 Panels)
Panel 1. Sampson king hits Spectre to knock him out.
Spectre:... until every single one of you is fu..

- Spectre... Don't talk... Kill

22. Panel 4. Gun-girl has morphed the fridge into a giant mini-gun and has a crazy smile about her.
Gun-Girl: ...the FIGHT to THEM!

- She said it.


23. Teach: er... Sometimes I can get too focused on one possible outcome. (drawing of Teacher about to hit a wall. 10 possible outcomes (10 of him around him looking at different things while he rides his bike.) One of his outcomes is him perving on a girl with a red dress.) -Heart eyes outcome of him looking on girl with red dress, dotted line back to him riding a bicycle with heart eyes about to crash into a wall.

- Sounds like a troublesome ability.

I'm a bit conflicted whether I should reveal their powers as their fighting each other like 'terraformars', or leave it a mystery till later...

I'll make the changes to my word doc, and then fix it up on MR soon. Thanks again! :D

Develop Your Story / Deifics
« on: May 03, 2018, 05:38:42 AM »
Hi all. I'm very new to this site. I am writing a manga called "Deifics". It's a fairly dark manga about a world similar to x-men, but where people evolved too quickly and many used their power for their own selfish gain.

About Deifics.
Spoiler
Deifics is a shoenen manga set in the world where everyone has developed some kind of super power, but where a majority used their powers selfishly causing a collapse of society. The story takes place roughly 20 years after world order was restored with the heroine of the story seemingly having no power.

General Synopsis/1st Arc Synopsis
Spoiler
The new world caused a great divide between people. No longer by wealth, but by an individuals new gift. Meet Will. Will is a bitter 16 yo teen. His parents went missing years ago and he's now being looked after by a teacher named Sampson.
The average human develops some kind of power by the age of 10-12, but Will was 16 now and had no such gift. He tries practicing everyday to bring his power out. He hopes to one day receive the gift that will allow him to get revenge on whoever made his parents disappear
At nights he has this strange dream like a memory. In this dream, he is just a boy. He's scared. He remembers a small body lying next to him. He can’t see their face.

One day at school everything would change. He saves someone from an S rank bully who swears murder on him. He's targeted by a secretive organization for assassination and is saved by a girl he has never met, who has been looking for him for a very long time...

Hi all! I am very new to this site. I kinda found this site because of a comic book idea I'm trying to make good-ish. I did a google search and this awesome place came up.

I grew up on american comics and got heavily into anime/manga later on. I like anime like 'Youjo Senkai', 'Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu', 'no game no life' but tend to lean towards more darker anime. I'm slowly reading through 'death mage who doesn't want a fourth time' and 'overlord.

Not sure where to start, but I'm looking for someone to read through my comic idea/ help me write it out.

Manga Writers wanted / Re: Manga Writer here
« on: May 02, 2018, 06:54:14 AM »
I know I'm replying quite late, but I would really be grateful for any help. I am writing a manga called "Deifics". It's a fairly dark manga about a world similar to x-men, but where people evolved too quickly and many used their power for their own selfish gain.

My story will take place 20 years after a great war. There is once again world order, but policing is a lot more extreme. We're introduced into this world through a character called "Will", who unlike everyone else, seems to have no power.

His school has a ranking system based on a persons usefulness to society. Will of course goes to Class "F". Surrounded by people with semi-useless powers like growing their nails long or changing hair color, etc...

One day at school everything changes. He saves someone from being bullied by someone from Class "S" who then threatens to kill him. He is targeted for assassination by a mysterious organization and a girl who he has never met, saves his life and tells him that she has been looking for him for a long time...

I've written several pages and know how the start, middle and end will play out, but I would be extremely grateful for any help. If your interested, let me know. Open to criticism and willing to  :sheep:*work on it. lol (kinda wanted to use it too)

Pages: [1]
