Opening: Julian Cassablanca and the Empire of Grief.
It took me a while to settle on a story that has just enough intro and not enough backstory to bog you down.
Julian Cassablanca and The Golden EP.
“I’m scared, I’m so scared. How are you not scared?”
“Do you know what the difference between a horror story and an adventure are?
Levity with a great sense of humor, and context. I’m already hilarious, so let’s go find our context.”
Julian goes through his Batman journey at the beginning of the book. We hint at a ton of things within the first few pages. Then we start the story. There’s a crazy something going on. I have some ideas, but I want to flux this a bit and see what I get.
For sure the villain is someone who wants to live forever. Mr Moon? Or is he fake Simone? But Melody Vague is only hinted at here and there in this one.
I know that for sure Bowie will be in parts, but I think that Jules might have a sidekick for this one.
“You want to live forever? Be alone. Time drags.”
Governor Slieze stands before the crowd at a podium.
G: …which is why it is my great pleasure to bring to the stage our new Director, Professor blank.
The crowd looks a bit shocked.The professor walks out. As he’s talking there are flash panels to images he watched on a computer of his family being abducted in the night.
P: I know a greater lot of you are surprised to see me as your acting director on this project. I understand the implications of what we are doing. But I also understand the need for a gamechanger. For results.
The solider speaks to him.
S: To be honest, I’m a bit dissapointed you’re here. Last year I attended a lecture on ethics you held.
P: My family. My wife and child… my daughter… were kidnapped amidst a cleansing. I was off world at the time…
S: … I’m so sorry…
P: No, I should be thankful that they are still alive, but for the life of me I cannot shake my anger. Someone still has them. And all sources lead to the rebels. So it is my duty to do everything in my power to fight them, in the hopes that I might see my family.
S: I’m sure the government is doing everything they can to track them down-
P: As they’ve assured me. But this is a war. We need to beat them so if my family doesn’t come back to me, they can’t do this to another. I don’t need empty promises, and heroism is the emptiest.
S: I wouldn’t speak so soon.
The two are standing in a viewing area where they’re watching the children in a “play environment,” they built. It’s basically a large park. A bully has left a young girl crying, and a boy with a black eye. Coming to their aid is SCOUT, our main character. A young 6 year old boy who wears a blue shirt, with a yellow star in the middle. He stands before them and the BULLY.
It’s hard for me to figure out what stage he would be in when the book first started. If you give him too many flaws, it’s hard for him to be the kind of hero I was hoping he would be.
If you give him too few, he’s not interesting, I stick him in the, “Should die,” category.
He needs to be interesting.
My thought it was when he meets Melody Vague (our terminal event), he is scared. He knows she’s the love of his life. He absolutely knows it, but he runs. He runs because he doesn’t think he’s ready yet. I think this is a fantastically human trait.
He wants to sleep around a bit, he wants to meet new people, but he also thinks that maybe his heart isn’t ready to love again. Also, he doesn’t technically have his heart. So when he meets her, he runs off to grab it.
Julian is scared of Melody, he feels he hasn’t grown enough, and shouldn’t be in the relationship he’s ready to be in. So he runs. Most of the first arc/book is about him dealing with this, and then jumping into the wide unknown that is an adult relationship.
Nirosh, Spencer and Ben are arguing.
Spencer: Nirosh, we can’t form a megazord without legs.
Ben: Spencer’s has a point.
Nirosh: Exactly! That’s what I’m telling Treyvon! Tell him!
*He points in mid air.
G: Okay okay okay… RANGERS, look… did you take this to your immediate supervisor?
Nirosh and Spencer point at Ben, Ben Points at Gor’don.
G: Dammit. Okay, so I will look into the budget!! And I will be see if we can requisition funds for a new ranger, but I need you to go down to HR to get it cleared!

Lobbyist: Look, this little retreat is for all of our new members. It’s to show you what we’re all about, and for us to show you what we’re about. Take your time, we’re not going to judge. Pick a room, that fits your fancy.
*He sees other notable senators going into rooms with children in S&M gear. He walks into a room with a couple of ladies walking out. Sits there for a bit, but you can tell he’s bored. Two of the other men in there with him and throwing things at the women, shouting, with food in their mouths. Another one just staring at them, leering.
*He walks out.
*he walks into a room, there doesn’t seem to be anyone in. A half naked man, Chippendales quality, is dancing about in the room. He sits down. Starts getting comfortable. He starts slowly smiling. He feels… oddly right.
Lobbyist: So you fall in line.
Lobbyist: If you were a man of integrity, we wouldn’t be in this position. It’s not my fault you had to have a family
H: Hey, I love them.
When someone dies, and I mean, not just everyday. Away from you. Out of sight out of mind. But when someone dies in front of you. Close to you. Within acting distance… it presents a fork.
The fork represents two different paths. Some people say it’s a defining moment, an explanation of who you are deep down. But I’d wager it an illusion. Its really a choice.
Do you get mad at the people and the reasons that person was killed?
Or do you war against the circumstances themselves?
