So...It's been a while. I've decided that the story will work its way out, one way or another, and I should stop worrying about the sequence of posting (since the parts posted so far are all out of sequence anyway) and just go with the flow. I won't get anything posted otherwise.
After some consideration, I've combined two bits into one, since they occur during the same period and I think anyone still reading this deserves a big chunk to make up for all of the lost time. These bits aren't very exciting, true; they're not "mission-based" posts, so don't get your hopes up. But I think they have a little spice to them, nonetheless.
These are, needless to say, from the same time period as Number Five. Some introduction to a few new characters; more on them will be posted later, of course. I'll see what I can do about the next post including more heart-pounding, bullet-dodging action.( Number Six- Part ACollapse )( Number Six- Part BCollapse )
Spelling and grammar errors Y/N? Also, I would like to add that writing about yourself is a painfully awkward experience, even from an artistic point of view. Hopefully that doesn't show through too much.
I'm hoping to post the next part sometime this weekend; shocking, isn't it?
To be honest, I have 3,440 words worth of new stuff written as of this very moment. But I'm not going to post any of it yet, even though two parts are definitely ready. It's mostly because I want to introduce a few new characters and ideas before I post the parts that are currently ready to go.
I know that there doesn't seem to be any pattern to the parts I've been posting, which is true in a way. The parts so far have definitely been, in terms of the chronological plot, out of order. But I have a method to my madness; the entire finished product isn't going to be "in order", and I prefer it that way. I think it makes it more interesting, in some ways. (If you don't know what I mean, then go see a Tarantino movie.)
But just so I don't disappoint anyone with this post, I have art to offer.
Rene (AKA renethetoaster
) has drawn a character sketch of Kari (AKA flame_of_death
), and it's beautiful. Huge thanks to Rene for drawing it, and to Ri for scanning it and sending it along to me. ♥( KariCollapse )
Gore and such. Swearing, and various other adult themes. Not for children under the age of seventeen.
All previous parts of the story can be found using the tags; same goes for the art and author's notes/announcements.
If you have any suggestions for the look of the page, or techinical aspects like that, you may comment here. Also, any bitching that doesn't concern the story itself can go here.
I can also be reached at Cassiopia1412@yahoo.com if you have concerns that you'd rather not discuss publicly.
Are you ready to view sheer awesomeness?
Karl is the personification
of awesomeness. These drawings make me so happy, and it makes me absolutely ecstatic to know that someone is so interested; that this project touched them enough that they would spend time drawing things from it. It completely blows me away.
So, I give you two more pieces of art from Karl.( ArtCollapse )
Yeah, I know.
I'm a horrible, terrible, no good, very bad person for not writing. But I promise that I've been very busy with many important things!
...Okay, that's just not going to fly, is it?
Alright, I come bearing a peace-offering. The first (and only) piece of Our Resistance fanart, drawn by one of our stars, Karl. Mad props to Karl, for not only letting me put him in my story, but for being supportive of it, drawing things for it, and just being awesome in general. He just got back from helping to clean up New Orleans, so kudos to Karl. He's an incredible person, and I'm so glad to have his blessing for this project. ( Karl and RichardCollapse )
I hope to write more soon, since I've been thinking about it a lot lately. Keep your fingers crossed. And if that's not enough, bitch at me. One way or the other should work.
Here it finally is. I'm sorry that it's so late, but it tried my best. I know that it's definitely
not perfect, but I wanted it to be the best that it can be for right now.
This is the first part of it, which I chose to go ahead and post because you've been so patient. The second part will be posted as soon as I finish picking it over and cleaning it up.
Thank you, and please enjoy.( Number Four- Part ACollapse )
If you have any questions/concerns/comments/corrections,
please let me know.
I don't want to make any promises that I can't keep, but after tomorrow I should be able to really concentrate on writing.
But that brings up a new problem. The plot will begin to show itself, bit by tiny bit, as I post more. But it all has to mesh and flow, which means that I need to have it all completely planned out as soon as possible.
Which means characters. I need to know who's in and who's just kicking back and enjoying the fireworks. If you want to be a character in it, please post a comment here.
To kill two birds with one stone, please post your information as well. It may not seem like it now, but I plan to make the character development as deep and intense as possible. This is a good thing, but it requires a lot of info.
So here's the format I need filled out:
First and Middle Name: Cassondra Lea
Nickname?: "Cassie" or sometimes "Cass"
Birthday: January 4th, 1987
Weight: 107 lbs
Hair: Dark brown and very curly. It falls to my waist now, but after next Thursday, it'll be about shoulder-length.
Eyes: Greenish-blue with a yellow ring around the pupil. Sometimes they swing to either end of the green/blue spectrum because of the colors that I'm wearing.
Complexion: Very fair (i.e. pale as death) with freckles.
Distinguishing marks?: Small scar on the left side of my upper lip (not really noticeable), two inch scar on the back of my left knee, small scar on my right wrist (not noticeable). No tattoos.
Health issues?: Allergies to dust.
Irrational fears or phobias?: I can't swallow pills of any kind. Just the thought of it makes my throat close up and my hands start to shake.
Insecurities?: That I'm stupid and unattractive/overweight. The stupid thing probably stems from my Kindergarden experiences, while the fat thing is probably from looking at my sister. (Skinny!) Not being able to understand the feelings of others, and thus, hurting them despite my good intentions.
Hobbies?: Kendo (Japanese sword fighting), reading, and dancing. I'm sure that there's plenty of other things that I'm forgetting...
Possible Career?: Biological research. Possibly some medical stuff.
Pet Peeves?: Injustice of any kind, large or small. It really makes my blood boil. Also, people who gossip.
Astrological Sign?: Capricorn, and I'll admit that that one was just for fun.
Also, I would really appreciate some feedback. If you see a problem or typo, please point it out to me. If you have a favorite post so far, please let me know which one and why! This is, above all, supposed to be fun. I'd love to hear from those of you that have actually read it, even if you're flaming me.
