No Heroes

Post by The Monsterworks » Thu Mar 30, 2017 1:50 pm

I've been working on this project, among others, for a while, but I've always been too busy to make any real progress. Jules has been working on it with me, but she's made even less headway. I'm hoping that posting chapters here will help garner some feedback and maybe make me give a shit, so guess I'll post as I complete them, along with revisions and discussions. Reads, opinions, and constructive criticism would be much appreciated. Thanks, guys!

Things are safer, nowadays, than they have ever been since The Blackening. There are two layers of fence that surround the whole town, and the outer one
Mastodon... Extinction (HW)
Osiris... Armageddon! (MW)
Elrathia... ROBOTS (LW)
Magnolia Pico... Ruination 4 (MW)
RipTide... ROBOT2 (FW)
Black Diamond... Cherry Bomb Classic 3 (HW)


The Monsterworks: 163 - 47 (.776) ...Probably up to no good.
The Cherry Bomb Classic III: 21-4
Show
Carbonemys: 7-1 Semifinals
Black Diamond: 9-0 Champion!
I Dance Crabcore, Motherfucker!: 5-3 Quarterfinals

Overall, I really enjoyed it. However, I have a few questions, comments, and criticisms.

1) I'm not sure about interspersing the two storylines like you have, TBH. I get the reasoning behind it, but the transitions throw me off a bit at first. Otherwise, really good.

2) Is Tristan gonna go full villain in this iteration? His and Clyde's relationship as brothers seems ambiguous. I'm assuming it's meant to be, but I'm not sure if them joking around after Clyde clearly shows disdain for him a paragraph earlier is a good idea. There's clearly some tension between them, and then it just gets deflated like that.

3) I liked the action scene, and the exposition was well done. The savages feel more menacing than they did in your old draft. Are we going to get to see the REAL outside of the fence (Vincent and co.) soon?
ARC Record: 420-1

Pretty much the best person on ARC
