Topher Moore’s Interest in Communitarianism

Topher Moore was an attractive 25-year-old political science graduate student; shaggy haircut, brown bedroom eyes, and a laid-back demeanor that had gotten him into a cheerleader or two’s bedroom, while maintaining a healthy male’s reputation.  He dressed in jean shorts, mole skin boots, knit blue hoodie t-shirts, and a rotating arsenal of hats.  To carry his possessions, such as his skatedisc, e-papers, and water bottles, in a canvas rucksack flung over a single shoulder.

Topher selected political science major to follow in his father’s footsteps, the famous political engineer Lewis R. Moore.  Lewis’ work kept him constantly travelling through the NAU’s north eastern city-states, giving Topher a varied cosmopolitan upbringing.  Topher was inspired by his father’s effort to push ecological communitarianism into mainstream political discussions.  Topher strives to contradict and battle tribalism, which has swept Terra following the Genesis Revolution’s isolating effects.

Topher selected Brasilia to study because of the Genesis Revolution’s surprisingly positive impact on the continent, such as increased global economic, military, and political power.  Brasilia also became flush with fertile farm land, which provided much needed food to most of the world’s population.  This turned the plantations into powerful new communities, which were independent of previous governmental tribal structures.  These new communities were independent of previous ethnic and cultural ties, becoming new societal utopias built around interactions towards shared goals and interests, and shared history.

Dead Roads outline

When the Pantheon left the plane of existence they sealed the planet beneath a mercury sky.  One thousand one hundred eighty-one years after the Second Revelation, The Awakening occurs, those that fell into catatonic sleep awaken from their immortal slumber.  Among the awakened is an orphan five-year-old boy.  Sixteen years after that a young man wonders the remains of Bharat ad Xinca.  He is flanked by six direwolves.

As the boy journeys across the deserts and mountains, he gathers followers.  Traveling the boy hopes to trace his origins, having awoke with no memory.  He is raised by Rejenys monks in an underground Sacred Garden.  The monks train him to control all cells in his body, and to manipulate his xi into a body encasing tactile psychokinesis.

The boy left the monastery on his twenty-first birthday to find his origins.  Along the way the boy meets the Pantheon one-by-on – coming and going as they please.  The Pantheon uses the boy to gain access to dense urban areas, where the boy is compelled to re-enact Rejenys myths.  Doing this the Pantheon creates a spiritual resurgence of stories and prayers to the Pantheon.

Reaching the Xinca Archipelago, alone, the boy reaches the site of his conception.  There he is met by an undisguised Nico, who with open arms, reveals her to be his mother and takes him to join her and Topher.

Diamond Queen – outline

Angel Constantine is an artist poised between two worlds: indie-art and dance-pop musi.  She burst onto the cultural radar with her single, the pure-peppy fist-pumping electro-pop “Hanging Out.”  The song’s promotional video contained brave sexual imagery that reflected her parents’ home country’s political upheaval in a vibrantly violent story; the promo went on to sweep the EU Grammy categories.  Since then, through her gleeful imagination ruled by a disciplined study of gesture and attitude, as well as strength, in body and spirit, Constantine has designed a new iconoclast daring the world to not scrutinize.

The brighter Constantine’s star grew the heavier she came under criticism for having a Svengali in DJ/Producer NORE, having begun a professional relationship when she was 15 in Ibiza.  Their mentor-protégé relationship is sweetly protective and utterly confusing to observe.  He has nicknamed her “Songbird”, calling her by it as they discuss work, art, & fashion.  Both she and NORE fought back by asserting Constantine was her own artist and dictated the direction of her work, writing all the lyrics and vocal arrangements.  The nature of their relationship was eventually revealed when a marriage certificate listed the couple married in 2052 in Hubbe City; Angel would’ve been sixteen, and NORA would’ve been thirty-three.  Three years later Angel was linked to the Blithedale sex-game murders, when a young man died at an Commission licensed event, when papers turned over to NEON in the Depravity Watch’s indecency investigation, listed Angel as an employee of Thaïs Kyabakura in 2051, when she would’ve been fifteen years old.

Inquisitors declared Constantine a victim of a clandestine and manipulative organization, escaping obscenity and prostitution charges.  But former co-workers disagree with The Watch’s ruling, going as far as to say that she perjured herself, claiming Angel had been in Neophyte training for six weeks at the Basilia Phalanstère in Sidume.  Constantine maintains she never took that path, and hopes that she won’t be called to testify at the indecency trial, scheduled to begin in November of 2056.  In the meantime, Angel wasn’t free from any entanglement with the Malthusian Commission, claiming to being continually monitored by The Watch.  Constantine says it’s because when inquisitors brought her in for questioning, they became annoyed and frustrated when she couldn’t supply names of executives or guests because she didn’t know anyone’s real name.

The November 2056 inquisition was too much for Angel and NORE who broke up early in 2057.  Angel left the studio that year and turned towards acting, turning in an award nominated and winning performance in ‘Perfect Blue’, playing a singer turned actress whose mental stability slowly unravels after shattering her perfect image.  Further distancing herself from her past, Angel moved into The Sacred Orchard at Topher’s invitation, acting as ambassador to the World Government Organization.

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

ENTELECHY – 1 – Matutinal Dialogues (Outline)

Topher Moore went through his life believe he was only typical.  Then taking an internship on an inter-discipline expedition to the Megalith at Ulurru Rock.  There his presence sends the Megalith into radioactive spasms, which send Topher and the rest of the interns to the distant Aeolya Belt.

Nico Finds a Body

As the first sun rose to mid-morning it winked over the skyline, Nico, with hands in her pockets, kicked a rock as she walked the shadowed streets of Plᴂtuo.  She passed a particularly dirty alley when a long deep barely audible moan came from a pile of trash.  Nico walked into the alley to investigate the origin of the unique noise.  In the silence she lost the path, but then from under the farthest heap came a burst of yellow and blue light.  Nico quickened her pace, knowing her destination, and then dropped to her knees next to the pile of trash.  She pushed the trash aside when there was another moan.  A man’s body become revealed under Nico’s efforts, and she began moving the trash quicker.  Had it been later in the day, surely, the sound would’ve been inaudible, she thought.  When the man’s body was completely freed from the trash Nico cradled him in her arms; he looked very familiar to her eyes.  Quickly, she looked around the debris for materials to create a makeshift cot.  There weren’t pieces large enough make a study vessel, so placing the body down Nico rummaged through her bag.  She pulled out three candles, placed them in a tight pyramid, and used a thumb flick to light them.  Nico said a quick prayer calling the refuse to gather under the man, lift him, and followed her back home.
