Random story idea

Posted by SwagtronYOLO , Mar 18 2017 · 111 views

So I'm not saying I would actually do this, but I've been playing around with a small idea for a modern Tekulo type story. It would be different from other works in the past because, well, I actually thought this one through a bit. A main reason I didn't keep up with Light and Shadow was because I never actually worked out an overall plot. That's the trouble with epic quest stories, they're just not my style. Back when I was a kid I was super into Megan being a superhero and fighting evil, keeping the world safe, but my villains were always weak. And the thing is, lately I feel like I've outgrown the old fairy tale trope where evil needs to be punished or destroyed. Really it's just not the kind of story I'm all about, so it's only natural that that story didn't last. But I did have some fun writing it and I do like a few aspects of Light and Shadow, so I don't think it was pointless or anything (even though there really wasn't much of a point to it. XD)

But anyway, I started thinking about what kind of story a person like me could have to offer up. And the answer is pretty much an angsty story about angst. XD. Let me explain the basic plot idea.

The story would be more of a self-interest, which isn't something I've done since my old bzp comics (which are terrible and please don't look them up. Let them rest in peace). It would take place in two different settings, following two stories simultaneously. The first setting would be my self-insert character. And by that I mean it would be basically me, a genderqueer demi gay dude in a relationship with a sort of melancholic reverie (hence the angst). Now while following Tekulo around, he will be visited constantly by recurring characters which personify different thoughts. It'll basically be Tekulo having conversations with himself trying to figure things out, explain himself and peer into his head a bit. It's basically a way to show the audience what's going on in the author's head as the story progresses.

Now, the second part of this story is what will move everything along. It will take place with a main protagonist in a fantasy world dreamed up by Tekulo. And well, this is probably going to be more slice of life than anything. It will explore The kind of world that Tekulo might find ideal, or showcase his fears that play out in his mind, characters he wishes were real, enemies he's glad are illusions, and fantastical concepts come to life.

Really it isn't much of an idea at this stage, and this type of story doesn't really follow a specific plot. Although, if anything, I feel like something like this might make a fun side project and could be an interesting exploration into my own personality and character.

Though I'm not sure what medium this would be in. Probably a comic of sorts. But I have no plans to start this anytime soon. It's just a thought.

sounds intriguing! I'd definitely want to read that, which ever medium you eventually decide on.

Hmm... I really have no strong opinion of either of them.
Both of them probably suck.

Gathered friends,

We are gathered here today to honour the passing of Tekulo. Killed by a shark and shot by a bow. Some would say no one deserves such a death. Others say he was asking for it.

Ashes to ashes. Dust to dust.

Ramen.

Try not to worry too much about it. Deep breaths. Scented candles. Meditation.

Imagine a whale.

A majestic, fabulous whale.

She's coming to say hello.

She's getting kinda close and invading your personal bubble.

There's not enough room for the two of you!

No, whale, noooooo!

I thought about it, but that led me on this existential space-out stream of consciousness metaphorical...thing.

It was weird.

So, lesson learned: when interacting with the personification of a concept, don't try to employ that concept on them.

The joke's always on you. You're glue in a rubber band world.

Ah, yes. "Hello, I'm calling on behalf of someone on the internet who says she didn't get her Delorean. No, I dont actually KNOW her, per se, or have proof she didn't get it, but she hates phone calls so this is a completely viable alternative." :P

Most people think puzzle games through and figure them out through intelligence and wit.

I just smash the square peg into the round hole until it breaks the hole big enough to go in.

Tekulo is the supreme overlord of lameness and illusory instigation and is far inferior to the illustrious and estimable Nuile, esquire, who is so awesome that a mere glimpse of his debonair, dashing handsomeness and general coolness blinds and in some cases melts eyeballs (note that I am not liable for any injuries acquired through staring at me) and is tall and eminent.

I get that, but that's not enough. Love can't be reliant on truth, I don't want someone not to love me because we don't believe the same truth.

Love is unconditional, love loves despite flaws. Love is selfless, kind; it protects, it hopes.

Love stops hate.

Love will win.
