    • Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit of Demons

      8 years ago

      Drums888

      So, I realize this is totally stupid, but I don't care. I've started working on something I call "Life, Liberty, & the Pursuit of Demons." I came up with the idea while in a teacher training yesterday, and I posted images of some sketches I did based on the idea.

      Last night and today I wrote out the first draft of my plot outline. It's not well written (because it's not meant to be; it's just an outline), so I'm not sharing it, but here's the general synopsis:

      In his experiments with electricity, Benjamin Franklin inadvertently allows a powerful demon to enter our world and possess his body. He goes into hiding and begins building an army to invade the capital and eventually the world. When Thomas Jefferson dies in 1826, he is chosen by a mysterious force (known in my outline as simply, "The Voice") to hunt down Demon Franklin and destroy him.

      However, Franklin has brought his top lieutenant to possess Andrew Jackson, who is elected in 1828. Demon Jackson uses his power to create a base of operations for the demon army. However, Jefferson arrives and trashes the place, finally destroying the demon in Jackson, freeing the president's soul. However, he is ambushed by Franklin and banished to the demon dimension.

      With his army destroyed and his powers dwindling in our dimension, Franklin uses the last of his energy to summon a top demon scientist and his next highest ranking lieutenant to assist him in building a device to merge the demon dimension with ours. The demons take the bodies of John H. Duncan (designer of Grant's Tomb, which is used to disguise the building of the dimension merging device) and Thomas Edison.

      Meanwhile, Nikola Tesla creates a device that allows Jefferson to return to our world. Tesla and Jefferson team up to stage an assault on Grant's Tomb. The final battle takes place with Tesla battling Demon Edison and Jefferson battling Demon Franklin. Demon Duncan, however, activates the device, and must be stopped. Jefferson uses Tesla teleforce weapon to finish off the demon and destroy the machine. Edison and Duncan go about their lives, freed from the demons' powers, and Jefferson and Franklin pass to the afterlife.


      Like I said, I know it's silly. My more detailed summary has other ridiculous details and is more developed than this, but that's the basics so far. It may be retarded, but it's been fun to work on so far. I'm thinking about somehow involving the Civil War as an explanation for why Franklin took so long to develop the device after losing Jackson, but I don't know, yet.

      And that, my friends, is what the state of South Carolina has been paying me to do the last two days. Huzzah for public education, eh? smiley8.gif

      Sure, watching Rocky fight each of these men was entertaining (and politically responsible, in the case of Drago). But everyone knows the real fight is them against each other.

    • Which is More Awesome?

      Drums888

      I'm having trouble deciding. Every time I choose one, I think of another reason the other is awesome. For example,

      2010-01-07-WishesForANewborn.jpg
      vs.
      aliens__colonial_marines_pics_19.jpg

      Or,

      battlestar-galactica-razor-2007112108272
      vs.

      The inner debate rages on. Also, you can tweet your picks . #starfighterpilot #spacemarine

      Happy Birthday good Sir.
      My gift to you was your puppy. I know you got him a little early and you don't think it was me that gave him to you.
      But trust me. I instilled the idea into your head and then convinced you that it was your idea...
      I also made sure you forgot about that conversation.

      So Enjoy.
      Happy B-Day.

      it's ok, i knew what you were getting at.

      i suppose, as a teacher, you're used to informing kids that they're doing it wrong, but you're also not being an asshole about it.

    • Le_Creuset

      10 years ago

      i just ran with the information that i've been given.

      when i took my anthropology/sociology/psychology class last year, our text book stated that hobbes claimed that the human race was inherently evil.

      our teacher was also a massive idiot, so i don't see why i would believe anything i was taught in that class now.

      I'm writing this ending off as non-canon. The Halo ending I had in mind is the real one, you'll see that one either Tomorrow or Monday.

      I'm really looking forward to having you on again, mostly because you were awesome and partly because I want to hear teacher stories that I wouldn't normally hear.

      it's dialogue like this that keeps me intrigued:

      Groosalug: Angel,look at me! I have freed the noble steed!

      Angel: great Groo!

      Groo: It is! It really is! Look here, dragon. I am freeing you so that you may fight the dinosaur....

      ...THAT is something I would very much like to see!


      all that, and the fact that Illyria morphs into Fred on the very last page. Wowza!

      I just finished reading "Angel: After the Fall volume 1"....and its not too shabby.....not as amazing or brilliant as the tv series....but i'm definitely enjoying where they're going with it.

      Meh, that's pretty cool.

      Me, I see a good sale, or see a drastic drop in price in something, and I'll probably buy it. I have a very bad habit of impulse-buying stuff online. Amazon is the devil... I love it, but it costs me so much.

      I was looking to buy season 3 of Avatar, and discovered that Windows XP Pro had dropped drastically in price (it was like $150 lower than its listing price), so I bought it... and The Great Mouse Detective on DVD.

      not to mention at the begining when they champ intercepted a pass and it was challenged but the replay equipment wasn't working so they couldn't overrule the call on the field, but according to the announcers it was clearly in possesion of both players when the receiver's elbow touched the ground making it san diego's ball. home field advantage FTW. smiley0.gif

      Before:

      He places his face against the door and he can actually smell Yelina’s perfume. Taste her lips in the morning before she brushes her teeth; she really hated that, it embarrassed her. Feels her in his arms. He shambles towards the living room. He sees her now sitting in his chair sound asleep. The police must have never told her.


      After:

      He places his face against the door and he actually smells Yelina’s perfume. Tastes her lips in the morning before she brushes her teeth; she really hated that, it embarrassed her. Feels her in his arms warm and soft. He can't help himself now. He shambles towards the living room. He sees her now sitting in his chair sound asleep. The police must have never told her.

      I don't think I've ever enjoyed reading image comments so much before. People I normally disliked before are getting pushed into a more positive light, and others I disliked are simply reinforcing why.


      Uh-oh, does you hate the Spider more now? smiley7.gifsmiley6.gif

    • Foolsfolly

      Awesome indeed. I'll give it to you after you read the next chapter (what because of the spoilers and all...I said that whole thing with Foghorn Leghorn's voice). Or not. If you'd like I can send it...in about two hours I'll have to polish it up a bit first.

      Oh, I didn't mean for it to sound like I thought you were a dick. I've had a rotating editor for this run.

      56- Geekers.
      57- McMuf
      58- Dac.

      I'd like you to be 59 because you seriously know your grammar. You'd probably be a great editor.

    • Foolsfolly

      10 years ago

      Would you like to edit?

      ...that could sound harsh, it's not. Dac is going to be editing 58 would you like to edit 59?

    • DarthJ3sus

      they're off SuperheroHype, but also linked in the Heroes thread. it's dated Today though so if you just look on SHH it should be easy to find.
