Imagine you are a child living as a half-breed in a world where humans and demons reside peacefully in mirrored realms. Everyone despises you solely because of what you are. They do not fear, but they mock and taunt. You live with only your mother, a woman whose heart shines like the sun. Your father, the source of all your thoughts, has been off at war for three years. You feel hopeless and inadequate, but suddenly duo of twin demons enter your life and perk your interest. While one is soft spoken and caring, the other is uneasy and suspicious of you. Despite a rocky start to this relationship, things seem to be changing for the better, you believe.
— Part 1: Adolescence
Hello! Happy May! (I’m three days late, but whatever.)
Above was a blurb-like summary of Part 1 of the Dark Side Project. I believe I mentioned this at some point in my final Future Thoughts post this past… Saturday(?), but if not, I’ll just state it here.
From here on out are Log posts, and they’ll (hopefully) be posted every day. The log posts that are specific to the written story will be categorized as “Log” as well as the subcategory, “Story Parts”. Each of these written-story-specific log posts will be titled as “Log: Day [#] – [Part #: Part Title] (“parts” used to be chapters, but now that I’ve begun writing part 6, the word “chapter” no longer seems to fit well with how this story progresses). Today’s post title is an example!
These “Part” posts will basically be explanations of the story in depth, split into seven parts (since there are seven parts). I’m planning to write one of these “Part” posts every other day until the 15th of May! YEAH!
Today I’ll be talking about Part 1— its inspirations, its characters, the setting, and finally, the structure of this part (and parts to come) — as well as an overview of the overall story itself (which, by the way, has yet to receive any sort of title… I’ve just been calling it “Dark Side Project” for now, but…).
By the way, expect the end of the week, or possibly this coming Sunday as the potential full-story-completion date.
Note: These are spoiler-filled posts (obviously)! Part 1 (the draft) is already online on the website, so if you’d like, you can read it there first before you continue on with this post. (Wix is having some issues, so the end of that part will be posted later once I figure out what’s happening~)
If you’ve already read the first part, read on~
