NEON/ECN – Lost Children outline

After the Seven Year War, when the Terrain System first came in contact with another sentient life form, was the Great Devastation, when Terrains were forced into solation – behind the Devastation Wall – there was widespread inter-planetary post-apocalyptic chaos: The Central Government Council is impotent by the cost of a failed expansionist war; science crimes have sky-rocketed; and inflation runs unchecked.  To investigate and stop those that would exploit the cracks in society is counter-terrorist and anti-crime wetworks ECN: Emergency Chevalier Network.

Chevaliers are genetically grown soldiers that are hybrids of carbonite, plants, and human DNA.  The chevaliers Misty Bleu and Felix, among other agents, are assigned with investigating and dismantle a blackmarket Aeolya synthesis network.  As the chevaliers dig deeper into the network of illegal science their own Twentieth Century and Aeolya origins become apparent to them.  Taking point in the investigation Misty and Felix journey to the Outer Planets, where they discover the source of the Aeolya synthesis is a Sacred Garden of The Pantheon around the orbit of Saturn.  The ECN’s discovery of a new Sacred Garden triggers the implosion of The Devastation Wall, which slowly compresses the energy of the Terrain System.  This brings about an explosion that births the evolution of the next universe.

Entelechy – 2 – Vespers at Sacred Orchards Outline

Returning to Earth at Ulurru Megalith, everyone returns to Magnolia Orchard, where Nico and Topher began constructing the first Sacred Orchard.  While in the market buying goods, Nico meets John Smith, and not knowing Earth customs interjects on his behalf, inciting him to become obsessed with Nico.

Topher leaves without a word and is tracked down by Ean Felix, under NEON orders.  Ean finds Topher at Ulurru Megalith going under ascension, fully accessing his godhood.  Topher does this with an audience of Rejynis followers, cementing the cult as a mainstream religion.

Nico, new to Earth, gets a world tour while going under her own ascension.  As Nico travels the world she sets up the sites of the sacred orchards and learns about various Earth cultures.  During Nico’s World Tour, she begins assembling several followers who arise to join a pantheon forming at Magnolia Orchard.  John Smith tracks Nico through interwebs, covering his apartment in newsprintings.

Acting in NAU’s security interests, NEON begins trailing the Magnolia Orchard Residents’ World Tour, beginning with Wyte & Ninive showing Nico Huxia (Japan) ruins.  Nico then travels to Varagia and Ascomanni with Oen; Mesogeois with Ien; Afruika with Wyte; True Cross with Topher.  When Nico & Topher return to Magnolia Orchard they find throngs of Rejynis followers, and John Smith among them.

The military and political tensions in The Valley are a microcosm of the larger societal problems that were found around the world.  One day, while touring Magnolia Orchard’s garden Nico re-meets John Smith and arbitrarily experiments with her pheromone powers on him, pushing his obsession to fanaticism. The General of Praetorian Guard, with NEON surveillance, confronts Topher about his worldly travels, warning him that whatever is planned will not occur in a void, he will be watched.  Topher’s college ex-girlfriend, Melissa Cobalt travels to Sacred Orchard and confronts Topher about him disappearing and returning without any word, and they have closure.

Following a terrorist attack at a local hotel, Topher lays out his plan to the assembled Pantheon to speed the evolution of Earth.

Verve – Life Goals

Growing up I wanted to be a published short story writer.  My stories would be published in genre collections and magazines.  The stories are collected in anthologies, where a shared cosmology – Pentapolis of the Valley – links the shorts, cycles, and novellas.  My fiction career allows me to publish articles and essays in literary journals.  Favorite topics of mine include: Emily Bronte, graphic novels, social equity, and the works of Caitlin R. Kiernan.  I write cultural think pieces for mainstream magazine and newspapers.  Eventually, my non-fiction works are collected.

The success of writing career gives me the ability to move to New York City, in its West Village.  I get to rub shoulders with artists at weekend parties while spending weekdays in discussion with critics.

My bibliography allows me opportunities to be guest editor, playwright, and historian.  I spend 1 year as a guest editor-in-chief at Heavy Metal magazine, selecting critically acclaimed European &Asian translations and indie creators.  I lead the magazine in an open submission that publishes two unpublished creative teams.  Working at Heavy Metal allows me to work with the premier graphic, fine, and sequential artists in illustrating my NEON/ECN short stories.  The decisions acquisitions and discoveries that I make have me become a curator of graphic fiction.

The Sunshine Kimono

Soon there will be many things not seen today, but appear as though they are.

There once was a golden two-tailed kitsune with cranberry eyes, which came across a Pylur temple and its young farmer-monk.  She watched him from atop a nearby cliff, behind a fallen tree, her two tails rustling the fallen leaves behind her.  The cranberry-eyed kitsune waited until a few evenings had passed, and it was raining, before approaching the ancient Pylur temple.  She approached as a beautiful young woman, her hair of an unusual blonde with cranberry eyes.  Her kimono was dove white and darkened to ebony at the bottom, with gold thread for trim.  She knocked on the temple’s undecorated wooden doors, and the monk answered.  The Pylur monk indeed was attractive with an even open face and his hair chignon.  His robes were green in honor of Tǖf.
