“Hard Work Beats Talent When Talent Doesn’t Work Hard.”
– Tim Notke

Panel 1

The Empress

In your hands is the key to either destroy or save your people. But the moment you choose to run, you have already opened the door of destruction.

When Illa chose to help a man no taller than six inches, she didn’t realize that he was going to be the door that opens up a life away from the norms of mundane farming. Mikkel is a Himin, an ancient race cursed with an ugly appearance when corrupted in heart, and he has left his flock to escape the fate. He ends up in a vegetable patch, where Illa finds him and feeds him. Consequently, when a devastating storm blows into the village, Mikkel spends his entire pool of magic to stop it before it should wipe them out. Enthralled by the rare magical ability held by Mikkel, Illa becomes his friend and eventually comes to knowledge of the shrouded conflict among three races, which existed since the beginning of mankind with no end in sight. Determined to help Mikkel in return for saving her family, they embark on a treacherous journey to seek answers from prophecies made by the long lost civilization of the Vatins.

Author’s Update: (as of 23 June 2018) The first draft is under way at about 72,000 words, which leaves us with 8,000 more to the goal of 80,000, though I have a feeling that it will end less. Nevertheless, there is always the edit which could add onto the plot. I finally have an ending in mind, and I only hope I will execute it well. Here is a short snippet from the third chapter.

Panel 2

Hot Shot Reporter

The human is a natural nosy – that’s why we have news.

All Stan Michaels wants is to be a photographer and an advocate for the good of life. He gets his wish when he meets Dave Arson, an amateur journalist who skips college classes on a daily basis to pursue Truths. It seems that nothing is impossible for Dave, whose confidence and skill set in solving mysteries of the age are beyond comparison to Stan. Yet when their involvement in a disappearance ends with a murder, Stan finds out there is much more behind the mask of this over enthusiastic boy. As such, he partners Dave in his endeavour to become the most truthful reporter in this world of lies.

Author’s Update: I have decided to post most of the draft scripts on here as I write and edit them. Thank the person who created an amazing plugin to automatically format the post into screenplay form. Here is the pilot episode for your viewing.

Panel 3

The Regenerator

The-Regenerator

What will you do if the only way to save mankind is to kill yourself, but no one is allowing you to?

We all have a monster living within. It is our choice whether to cage the beast or feed it. For Cory Cattson, this is a choice he will be forced to make, quite literally and quite soon.

In the 2200s, nothing much has changed on Earth except for two notable differences: The citizens of the planet have successfully rallied to take better care of their home, and it is now an accepted fact that life does exist on other worlds-and it is not all friendly and benevolent. Cory is recruited to join a unique high school that trains Earth’s protectors. He survived a brutal attack by an evil creature when he was a small child and still carries the scars. No one suspects that for Cory, the worst is yet to come. Within his body, his attacker planted a malevolent spirit, one that seeks to terrorize the universe. That the host must be sacrificed is a small price to pay.

As if his childhood was not traumatic enough, Cory must now deal with the most terrifying adversary of his life: himself.
