When God first began to create, he made me first. And then he made the universe from what was left over.
My serial novel© (which goes from Welcome to Omega to The Battle of Omega, so far and is in the process of reposting) is the thing I spend the majority of my time on here. Here's a little teaser for all you lovely people reading this right now. Maybe I'll even put it on the back of the cover.
We should have seen it coming. It didn't happen overnight, like some fools say. It was a gradual process, one we let happen. The world is run by the monolithinc Corporation, subdued by the military of the most powerful states in the world, or bought with the ocean of money we gave them. There is no sense of national love. Our cities were stripped of their names, replaced with alphabetical terms for efficiency. The skies are choked black with the fumes from the industrial monster we let ourselves create.
But, as in every tyranny, there is resistance. The movements have risen and have fallen, until only the strongest remain. But even the great Demokratos party is beginning to fail, eating itself from the inside out. Their power is crumbling, and its only a matter of time before the Corporation destroys this last bastion.
Somewhere in the middle of the spectrum are the runners, an elite group of fighters. Meet Dante, the newest initiate into their order, considered a scion. And learn his story.
I'm not what one would expect from a gigantic, muscular, handsome Nordic boy. Many would most likely immediately classify me as an ape and a jock. They're half right: but everybody calls me Polar Bear. Well, that or the Angel of Death.
I like sports, videogames, swordfighting with real steel, the Celtic flute, reading, and writing.
Most people are either intimidated by my size or get along with me perfectly well. If i had to describe myself, the choice adjective i would use is wolfish: extremely loyal to family, pack mentality, quick, strong, sensible, and occasionaly blind to the bigger picture in pursuit of the hunt.
Reading requests are open except for erotica and romance! Sorry, people!
(Commandant) Khano: The very soul of charity on Booksie: putting up with my story and praising it! No easy feat, that. Her poetry is excellent, and she always has a kind word to say or a little advice to offer.
(The Left Hand) Arun: A kind person, always ready to offer long and descriptive critiques or praises. Boys and Girls, if you want a silver-tongued critic, go to this man.
(The Right Hand) OvercomeTheDark: My very first reader. A woman of talent, her stories will no doubt be big hits if she publishes them. Keep writing, my dear.
(The Smile) ShreyaSen11: Possibly the bounciest 12-year-old ever, she's not only nice and extremely friendly, she can write! Rock on, Pequenina!
(The Scepter) sayonwriter101: My second reader. While occasionally slipping up on grammar, she is inventive and imaginative. I hope she meets with success in her writing career.
(The Spear) XxShadowWarrior16xX: My very first fan. Even though I haven't heard from him in a while, I hope he's having a good time.
Fave quotes of all time!
"I don't know who you are, and I don't know what you want. If you're looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have is a very particular set of skills. Skills I've acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don't... I will look for you, I will find you..."
"And I will kill you."-Liam Neeson as Bryan Mills, Taken
"Good, bad, I'm the guy with the gun." Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams.
"Excuse me... Who ordered the hamburger with AIDS?"
"...I ordered the Hamburger Deluxe..."
"In here, a hamburger comes with fries, lettue, tomato, mayo, AND AIDS! Ya'll got a problem with that?"
"Yeah, I'm an American and I got a say in who makes my food!"
"Well baby, its too late or that. Faggots been breeding your cows, raising you chickens, brewing your beer before I walked my sexy ass up in here, everything on yo goddamn table GOT AIDS!"
"Well you still a'int making me eat no AIDS burger."
"Well all you gotta do is say "Hold the AIDS". *grabs the burger* Here. Eat it." *smashes the redneck's face with the burger, stunning him.
"BITCH, YOU COME IN MY HOUSE YOU GONNA EAT MY FOOD THE WAY I FUCKING MAKE IT!"
*walks away, saying over his shoulder,* "Tip yo waitress."- Nelsan Ellis as Lafayette Reynolds.
"At last. I must say, I'm disappointed in your progress, I imagined you'd be here sooner. Tell me... Did it trouble you to kill your brothers?"
"Did it trouble you to order me into the Abyss?"
"Eternity is relentless, Raziel. When i first stole into this chamber, centuries ago, I did not fathom the true power of knowledge. To know the future, Raziel! To see its paths and traceries streaming out into the infinite! As a man, i could never have contained such forbidden truths. But we are so much more than we once were."
"Do you not feel, with all your soul, how we have become like Gods? As such... are we not indivisible? As long as a single one of us stands, we are legion. And each of our futures are predetermined: Moebius foretold mine, eons ago. We each play out the part that fate has written out for us. Free will... is an illusion."
".... I found the tomb of the Sarafan, Kain. How could you profane a priest by turning him into a VAMPIRE?!"
"How could I not? One must keep his friends close, Raziel, and his enemies even closer. Who better to serve me than those whose passions transcend all notions of good and evil?"
"The Sarafan were saviors, protecting Nosgoth from the corruption that WE represent! My eyes are open, Kain! I find no nobility in the unlife you rudely forced upon my unwilling corpse!"
"You may have uncovered your past, but you know nothing of it. You think the Sarafan are noble? Altruistic? Don't be simple. Their agenda was the same as ours!"
"You nearly had me, Raziel. But this is not where, or how, it ends. Fate promises more twists before this drama unfolds...completely."
"I was chosen because killing is an art."
"And I am a master."
Assassin, and devotee to his gods.
