'What Did Come' stuff

Post by Sheana_Molloy » Fri Apr 15, 2005 6:15 pm

Just thought I'd share...some of you know that 'What Did Come' is the working title of a novel I have in mind and would like to write someday.  Well, I'm using it in a 'Conceptual Illustration' class I'm taking, and it forced me to sit down and actually write the background of the story, some bits and pieces on the characters and the world, etc.  A synopsis of sorts.

Well, I've written this shortish synopsis, and would like to know what you guys think, if you have the time. :)

I trust you guys fully, but note to the rest of the Internet:  you steal my stuff, I make like Mr. Burns and wear your brain like a coonskin cap.

Uh, yeah.  Hope you guys like the idea.

Like it? Oh, I do. :)
Sounds very exciting with a break from the "ordinary" alternate world stuff I've been reading lately.

Oh, my...

You know I liked this idea since I first heard of it, Sheana. Well, now I *love* it. Intriguing, nifty and highly thought-out with its own internal logic. I particularly like the idea of the dreams influencing the humans, and Mia's character.

Attention as currency! Yay!

You'd better start writing this novel soon, or I'll get restless. Typical.

Quite a stylish summary, formally, though I have a nitpick about "as exponentially as". Other than that, good.

I wish I could fund this somehow.  :) *lavishes attention on Sheana*
The noose draws tighter;
This is the end;
I'm a good fighter
But a bad friend;
I've played the traitor
Over and over;
I'm a good hater
But a bad lover.

Thanks, guys, I appreciate the encouragement. :)  Make no mistake, when I finally figure some more things out and have the time, I will write the stuff. :)
