Well, sorry that I sorta appeared and disappeared. A lot of shit has happened in that little span of time; what, 2 months?

In that span of time, I had virtually no time to write... but, new ideas have sprung forth during idleness, so it's not like I completely went to crap there.

Shit has really hit the fan, and it's just going to get worse from here.

Artemus is dead, taken by the Nightingales. The crawlers. Sure, they appear to be pink and harmless, but holy shit do they have a set of teeth on them. Well, sets. They work a bit like shark teeth only more of them. They only show it when agitated or in attack mode.

Ixion is burning, being eaten alive by them too. I refer them as mutants instory because they don't know what they are. Just this weird chirping noise that they emit. And yes, there are cellphones in the future, and among other types of communications. What's a query? (Ha, I just answered it.) It's texting, but it has a special thing to it. I forgot to say in the last discussion, yes, Madrugada is an android too, the same class as Vincent. I forgot to mention that Class I's are the most varied in terms of looks.

I had a little trouble writing the last scene because I came up with so many variations, all of them awkward as hell. But the fact of the matter is that Madrugada got a little too close and woke up Vincent.

How is Vincent alive you ask? Sure, his heart is plain missing, but something might have occurred in the 375 years that he was dead. A slow recharge? Or maybe he went into critical shutdown then to recover? Or just pure chance? Or the doing of the Lightbringer? (Ohhh!) It's still early in the story.

Woah, a 375 year time skip, a different planet, and more people introduced?

What the hell?

I'll tell you this much, Echo Madrugada is the other major character introduced to this story. I know her name is weird, but it has meaning. During the course of the story, she will called by her last name. Or have the whole the last name is actually her first name and... well it's a lot feminine than Echo because it can be mistaken for a male name, I think. She does get called Echo though at some point in the story.

She is a junior secretary, lower than an actual secretary. In that regard, she pretty much does all the grunt work and then some. It's because of her height. She is very small, at about 4'11", and everyone who works at the police station is chufty. So, she has a desk job, pretty much serves as an information/help line. It's a wonder how she even got that job, let alone being assigned to Artemus. Her age is vague, but she is around her early 20s. It will be apparent as the story goes on.

Another thing introduced? Hyperion and Ixion, a double-planet. Ixion is more of the suburbs and the agriculture planet, thus it has a smaller population. It's actually the leading producer in the whole system. Remember when I said that the planet undergoes darkness for a period? It's called Lowlight, marked by a festival, and parties everywhere. There is also a day of remembrance, but I'm not even sure if I am going to put that in or not. I couldn't think of any good names for the twin suns, so it's almost generic. I still don't know what class of stars they are.

And what is the Lightbringer? Well...

The Lightbringer is a mysterious entity. It is also referred as the Deathbringer in some circles. It's a physical god that pops up during important galactic events, such as a destruction of a world, the beginning of something. It can chose to end it all, or give assistance to whatever is happening, good or bad. It has no bias. And it doesn't have a particular form, but when it is seen, it takes on a form most appealing to the eye instead of some Cthulu looking thing. I thought about. but I honestly can't think of writing about tentacles flailing all over the place. Not to mention, that's just gross.

Not expecting that, huh?

Well, neither did Vincent. That mortician is a sneaky fellow.

Anelus is a bit of a mysterious person, I'll admit. But he is of a serpentine race. No, he doesn't have any scales (not that I know of anyway), but his behavior? You'll see later on. Anyway, he hails from a distant planet (haven't named it yet) where it's all doom and gloom so, of course he fits his job description. In fact, it runs in his family and therefore a business. And how did he know that about Vincent? Or was that just a huge bluff?

Vincent on the other hand... well, it's clear that he's not human. He is a Class I android, meaning that it is extremely hard for anyone, even the androids themselves to tell if they're actually machine or not; even if that's the case it's very subtle. For instance, his eyes have a slight glow to them and his irises have a slight ring about them. If you seen Gurren Lagann, something like Lordgenome's eyes. Believe it or not, his height too. Class I's are of average Terran height, and he's roughly 6'5". That's still sort of unusual height today.

That necklace that Vincent gives to Skuella? For androids, they have either some type of trinket, like a bracelet, necklace, ring, jewelery of that sort with them at all times. It's a symbol of love, of different levels, and appreciation. However, there is something about the pendant, the star of Xen...

And what's with this thing called Excelis? It's basically a super-mode, dependent on the android. But, most do not realize that they even have such a thing. And even if it is triggered, it's purely by accident. Vincent knows how; he healed himself from the damage he took, but at a slight price. There is certainly more to him, but after what Anelus did...

That part I actually had a little trouble writing. It was either to make it as bloody as possible or bloodless. I think bloodless worked. It's believable, for one, even there should be a lot of 'blood' considering Vincent's heart got torn out of him.

And hearts do have a role in Nightingale too, believe it or not. I still haven't worked that out either.

This past week, I worked on Nightingale.

I haven't done that since I left for basic training. Or before that.

Nightingale is about an alien invasion, set in the far future and even in another galaxy. Well, the galaxy that's gonna collide into us in the next 4.5 billion years - Andromeda. Only two can stop the whole deal and save the system or even the galaxy/universe, etc, I haven't decided on that. The aliens -- the Nightingale -- are a nasty bunch. They are controlled by a massive hive-mind, the Queen. I would say something similar to Myrrah from Gears of War but not quite.

They are capable of on the spot mutation to help cope with whatever planet they land on, and infect other beings with some semblance of intelligence, artificial or natural. That's right, they can infect machines too! But how do they infect? I'm still working on that. Why are they called Nightingale? Because they sound like them. But, that's the problem though; no one knows what the namesake sounds like because they are extinct by that point and little data have been developed. By the time you hear one, it's too late. 

Nightingales do have weaknesses, though few in number, which of course makes them extremely hard to kill. It all depends on the host and such, but the common weakness they share are light and sound, so they do not attack during the daytime. On the planet they are invading, it is the start of a time that the suns (yes, suns) don't rise beyond the horizon, like how around the arctic circle during the winter time?

I did say two are the only ones that have the capability to stop them. One doesn't know, the other one does, but he's... well, I can't say what happened to him, but it's quite grisly. And I'll explain after I post the prologue.

patrickthemuse: (kuwabara - writing)

Welcome to Brain Regurgitation, where anything goes. 90% of anything. But, it's mostly a brainstorming place for my writings. That being said, when it comes to brainstorming for either one of my stories, nothing is a spoiler because even I don't know if I will use them or not, if that makes any sense. It's merely speculation on my part; and that's what's fun about writing. I'll post them as such if you wish to avoid them, and maybe put it under a cut.

I'll try to post at least once a week, schedule willing due to school/work on what ideas go through my mind.
