Too lazy to post this private, feel free to ignore (and no, that's not a cryptic invitation to actually go ahead and read it)

Thinking on a story, probably goes with Roman a Clef, if I ever pick up my pen and write additional chapters/episodes/issues. It would go well with RaC because of the existential nature. That and the whole basic comic-bookness of it. Very Secret Wars. One person (Miguel, most likely) who seeks to destroy the Pillars of Reality because he is Miguel and is curious about the nature of everything. That, and the fact that his 'mutant power' is unstoppability (Shh! I didn't say that), I think would make for an interesting (nerd) read. A lot of philosophical arguing would have to go on to convince him not to shatter the fourth wall. Not that I wouldn't have him do it anyway. Too bad Ren & Stimpy have made destroying reality passe with their history eraser button. Everything's passe. That's why Miguel's plan is switching from taking over the world to destroying it (or remodeling it, at least). Even that's passe. I'll think of something. That's what I get for being a fanboy when I started this story.

"I've got a Dungeon Master's guide
I've got a twelve-sided die
I've got Kitty Pryde
And Nightcrawler, too
Waiting there for me,
Yes, I do. I do."

I wonder if I should make the Pillars representative of aspects of how we form our subjective realities, like they would in a Final Fantasy game. There'd have to be a Pillar of Sensation or maybe Perception, and something like Judgement (I spell it with the optional extra e because it doesn't look as ugly, so there) and something cheesy like Love. Love would probably go first, most likely as the end result of the storyline that my muse Psyli helped me fix. I still have to write that. Apparently Ch. 4 was never actually posted and all digital copies of it have disappeared. Then there needs be that story about the guy whose power is being the exception to the rule. I forgot how I was going to solve that one, since it would involve some clever trickery to have both his power and Miguel's unstoppability both work without conflicting. Unless I had decided to let him be the exception to the rule and thwart Miguel's plans. I really did think I'd written that down as well. Guess that's what I'm doing here. If I could draw, this would be a comic-book already and I would have sold out sometime well into my sophomore year, instead of stalling and forgetting about it.

I have no way of seeing what this post looks like on the web. I'll edit it tomorrow, or something. Stupid Erol's.
