I just discovered something. There's water in the water! Oh my god, people, actual water in the water! That's fucking evil!
Madness! Madness! How dare we put water in our water? Don't you know how hazardous that could be? I mean the very idea, folks. The very idea!
Warning, exposure to dihydrogen monoxide includes, needing to urinate, dry mouth, possible frost bite, and asphyxiation, and also corrosion of metals and interference of electronics. Dihydrogen Monoxide may possibly contain the vary dangerous organism known as Carcharodon carcharias.
Keep out of reach of children and elderly.
How could we let this evil substance continue on? How could we? We must destroy everything that has dihydrogen monoxide so that we can make this world safe for our children.
THINK OF OUR CHILDREN! The'yre drinking this stuff whenever they're outside playing! We're swimming in this dangerous stuff. We're fishing in it!
Damn it! How could we let this go on? How? This planet needs become Dune. No not a drop of water on that planet. Completely safe, yo.
And all we have to worry about is narcotic-addicted cave people riding on sandworms. Well, that's much, much safer than having a planet filled with dihydrogen monoxide.
The fiends! This all Obama's fault! Putting water in our water!
Yes, I'm joking. Do I need to spell it out to you?
But after the joke, let's talk serious. Not about having water in our water.
I've come up with an idea of what to do with Tanya a bit later during the second half of the story.
Southern Heat will be split into two parts, but all happening in one book.
First half is called Quarantine, which I hope people are reading...
The second part is called Coalition. And it will revolve around Tanya of course and how she is now dealing with these two factions, one that's all about draconic supremacy, and the other about sanctifying humanity and simply "dragons are evil bastards that need to be destroyed."
Tanya is going to be split, she's gonna be dealing with the dragon supremacists and I thought about having Casey deal with the human supremacists.
First off with Casey, I thought that his mother would join this group and such and try to drag him into it, which will further rift him and Tanya apart.
But here's the clincher. Though I thought about Tanya eventually joining a special forces team that will be called upon to handle dragons who become too out of control in North America, but before she does that, she gets–tricked–into at least seeing what the dragon supremacists are about.
In Chapter 10 of Quarantine, I did introduce a little info about the potential leader of this group, he's a huge Red Dragon who escaped the camp and took some dragons with him. This dragon was a veteran, he has fought in wars, he knows how the military thinks, and could use this as a means to get what he wants. He is a charismatic being who has given into his draconic nature completely to the point where he has abandoned his human name in favor of his draconic one and instructs those who follow him to do the same. And he's a born leader.
For whatever reasons as to why he has given into his draconic nature, I will not be explaining. I feel such things should be left to the reader to figure out. And I'd like to hear them as to why someone like this would just give into his draconic natures to such an extreme. But as to why he wishes to create this group is because–for simple reasons, he sees himself as a superior being to humans. And yeah, for good reasons–dragons are big, stronger, more durable, have breath weapons, can live longer, have magic powers. That sort of thing. But he's taking it to the extremes, he sees the evils of humanity, because of what he has seen as a soldier, and begins to believe that humanity itself is well–misguided, not really evil, but pathetic and if they wish to continue–they should accept their new draconic masters, who will usher in a new peace in which the dragons rule and the humans are subservient.
His over all message is one of peace–at least on the surface. But we all know what kind of peace this guy may want. Usually means bad things. But first off, his peaceful message may be of one of solace and sanctuary to any dragon who feels oppressed by the government and not being allowed to be their new selves–not being allowed to live this new gift they were given. And so he would gain followers from many dragons who might feel restrained and oppressed by the government, or even their peers. Also, he could very well gain followers from humans as well. This Red Dragon leader wants human followers, and would be openly welcoming to them, because on the surface, humans who can help spread his message is a good thing, but deep down, Red Dragons likes to have the little two-legged soft-bodies as servants. And easier to avoid a bloodbath if the new servants, or–SLAVES–are a little more obedient and welcoming to his New World Order.
So, Tanya is intelligent, but–she's not savvy intelligent. And in her emotional state, she would want to find out about this group who might help to bring a voice to dragon kind. If she has to live with herself as she is, then, she needs to have a voice in this world where humanity may try to silence them. So, she goes to find out what this is all about. She doesn't quite meet this huge Red, but some of his followers, who then inform him about the ONLY FEMALE RED DRAGON in North America is looking into his group. And looking into this group would also drive a bit of a wedge between her and Casey.
Eventually, I thought about Tanya finding out the evils behind this group and what this particular charismatic Red Dragon may have in store for her–as in mating purposes for one–and for another experimentation–and usage of her particular gifts. Tanya has a gift (curse) that is of interest to him. And I'll show that off when she goes after the Brass Dragon. As for this Red Dragon, he has some gifts of his own, particular gifts that may help him in controlling his followers, and also very important, since he has allowed himself to delve into his draconic nature, he has also opened himself into the genetic memory of his particular family line. This dragon may know what the Event was, which is again a big thing for Tanya to figure out. She doesn't know and denies her own genetic memory to find out. If she allows herself to see into her genetic memory, she is afraid she may lose herself to Xymaeosthrax, the Red Dragon part of her.
So, I'm mapping out ideas on what I want to do with the next part of the story. But before I get to Coalition, when I finish up on Quarantine, I'll start back on the Halo/Mass Effect story that needs to be finished! As well as starting on Neltharion's story of going to Pandaria.
I've got stories to write.
And COMMISSIONS TO DO! So, Yes, I'll be doing those as well.
