The protagonist is Basil Blake, a young boy who, after losing his parents, develops an advanced understanding for technology of all kinds and decides to go out and change the world. The story updates at least once a week, with extra content whenever I have the time to write more.
Please keep in mind that this did begin as basically just practice for writing – the first three arcs are rather weak and I only really found my stride from the fifth arc onwards.
My greatest inspiration for this work is the web serial Worm by wildbow. For those of you who do not know, it is a truly breathtaking story about parahumans, sporting an intricate plot, extremely original and interesting powers and one of the most engaging main characters I have ever read – the bug-controlling Taylor.
Further inspiration came from:
The Whateley Academy (web serial)
The Legion of Nothing (web serial)
Wearing the Cape (novel)
Soon I Will Be Invincible (novel)
too many dc and marvel comics to list here
and a lot of other works…
Be advised, these stories will head into very dark themes, including, but not limited to:
murder, mass-murder, suicide, torture and rape.
Though I will not offer graphic displays of such, especially the last two, the fact still stands that this is no blog for children or people with a weak stomach! You have been warned.
