This is the story of a world where powers appeared in the Roaring Twenties and caused history to take a very strange turn.
More precisely, it’s the story of a bunch of young people, whom gain powers and set out to change the world their precursors made.
And even more precisely, it’s the story of Basil, maybe, a young gadgeteer, and the trials and tribulations he faces on his path to a goal he himself knows little of.
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.
A great 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.
Even more 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.
