I have long imagined this scenario for my superhuman series. I imagined a powerful superhuman battling while he listens to music they like. How they would listen to this music would be unusual and unorthodox. This music would help them concentrate while fighting and they would fight while moving as though they were conducting an orchestra. Without the use of this music, this superhuman would not have the concentration to properly control their immense power. This will be similar to how I use music to help me concentrate while writing.
I thought of the ultimate culmination of my superhuman series, a war between humans and superhumans. For over five thousand years, humans would be the rulers of the known solar system. However, the introduction of superhumans would challenge the normal humans’ status as the supreme rulers. Throughout the series, a chain of events will result in an all-out war that would decide the fate of the entire solar system. Who will triumph in the end? Mere mortals living on borrowed time or empowered beings rising to prominence? Like Game of Thrones, the characters will be morally ambiguous because they are both heroes and villains at the same time.
As you are aware, I have a dark imagination as both a writer and as an overall individual. Some people avoid the darkness, but I walk towards it because I find dark things to have a sense of realism compared to more optimistic stories. I have seen countless dark things in my lifetime, both in fiction and in real life, and the darkness feels more real than the light as a result. This allowed me to incorporate dark elements into my writing; some would fascinate my readers and some to horrify them. Other authors have dark imaginations just like me such as Stephen King, Edgar Allen Poe, George R. R. Martin, and countless others.
The gaming system known as Wii has a reputation for causing more household accidents than any other game system. America’s Funniest Home Videos made this video montage that highlights this fact. Hilarious!
I had an epic 29th birthday this year! For breakfast, my family and I had cake and ice cream. My mother’s favorite motto is “eat cake for breakfast” and she literally has a T-shirt and purse with those words on them. For lunch, we went to the Spaghetti Factory and had a luscious pasta meal. For dinner, we went to Medieval Times and watched a magnificent show! In the gift shop, I got to handle more blades. First, I handled a White Walker sword, which is a blade capable of killing a dragon! It was made of polymer instead of ice and no real edge. I also handled a falcata, which had the shape of a single-edged sword yet had the weight of a battle axe. In addition, I got to handle the Valyrian steel Catspaw Dagger from Game of Thrones. Although I found the dagger’s handle to be too crooked and unsightly ever since I started watching Game of Thrones, it was surprisingly comfortable to hold onto and easy to index the edge of the blade. I can see why some characters liked this weapon so much. Hard to believe that this dagger started the worst Westerosi civil war since the Dance of the Dragons. Overall, it was an epic day to remember and I look forward to my thirtieth birthday next year.
In the show called Gotham, we were presented with TWO versions of Batman’s most infamous nemesis, the Joker. The two versions are twin brothers named Jerome and Jeremiah Valeska. At first, we thought Jerome was going to be THE Joker, but it looks like he was just the man who inspired the rise of the TRUE Joker, who seems to be Jeremiah. One could argue that Jerome symbolizes the Heath Ledger version of the Joker while Jeremiah represents the Jack Nicolson version of the Joker. Their personalities and levels of insanity are similar and yet different at the same time. Jerome was a clear psychopath and anarchist who loved to laugh and cause death and destruction. Jeremiah, however, is cold, analytical, and shows little human emotion, which makes Jeremiah more of a sociopath instead of a psychopath and unlike Jerome, he does not laugh often. Both cause death and destruction for fun, but Jerome causes chaos for the sake of chaos while Jeremiah creates chaos to recreate the world in his image. It has been stated that the Joker is not a person but an ideology, but I think we may be seeing the rise of the TRUE Joker at the end of Season 4. Overall, I think Jeremiah is worse than Jerome because even though he is just as insane as Jerome, he is more intellectual and calculating, which makes far more creative in his madness than Jerome ever was, which would make Jeremiah infinitely more dangerous and more likely to be THE Joker. Another hint of Jeremiah being the TRUE Joker is that he would not kill Bruce Wayne, unlike Jerome. The reason this is such a telling clue is because the Joker’s greatest weakness that he cannot imagine a world without Batman since Batman was “too much fun”. I look forward to seeing Jeremiah continue to evolve into one of the most infamous supervillain of all time!
I like the idea of being reincarnated and live an infinite number of lives in various vessels. I am thinking of applying this concept in my fantasy series. In most fantasy stories I have experienced, whenever a sorcerer dies that is the end of their story. However, what if when they die their spirit leaves their human body and becomes reincarnated into a great beast of magic? For example, if the sorcerer in question was good then they would be reincarnated into something magnificent like a wolf that is larger than any bear or an eagle with feathers as colorful as a peacock’s. But if they are evil, they would be reincarnated into monstrous abominations such as flying gargoyles that could snatch away women and children to feed or large demonic snakes with acidic venom that could melt through armor. The possible new forms a deceased sorcerer could take would be limitless.
