I've been up since 7:30am EST working on backstory and all of the working parts for Scargill's storyline. It hasn't taken me anywhere near as long as I originally thought it would since I've been putting together bits and pieces for the last few weeks and finally decided to openly start posting about it here.
Hammering out the web of characters connected to and opposed to Him and Their respective backstories has also been very interesting as well. Like I typed about before when I spoke on the Star Wars Prequels. It is hard to create something that you really either don't know about or have an actual feel for. And political intrigues of power is something that can turn as dry as two dogs fucking in a hurry if you're not careful.
However when you're talking about the politics of power amongst Non-humans or at least human-beings or humanoids who can do things that we can't do. Then you should be able to keep an audience's attention in some way shape or form, simply based on the fact that they're watching humans with non-human abilities! Try to handle the politics of their world, universe, whatever.
The Prequels had great potential ideas.
But the execution simply wasn't there.
Also didn't help that much of everything's outcome is actually already known. So tampering with shit like making Boba Fett a clone, was plain-ole-stupid. BUT!?
When I look at the fact that George Lucas can be assholish about certain things, where he has always made it clear that he has NEVER LIKED. Boba Fett's popularity. And he was ALWAYS JUST MEANT TO BE A THROWAWAY CHARACTER. So fucking him over even more not only didn't surprise me but it did make me realize WHAT NOT TO DO. As if I needed that lesson in regards to carrying My Own Pettiness into what I am/have/will, create.
So while I was working this morning I was left to look at the web of characters around Scargill. The storyline I've already worked out. The History and all of that. And then I began working through starting at Scargill and His Parents and Their Family of course.
And then working my way up from Them to where they ultimately settle at, which is the setting for where the story takes place.
Once I got THAT DONE.
Then I could go on ahead build everything else up around THEIR CENTRAL HISTORY AND STORYLINE. And build the CENTRAL THEME that ultimately was the Cause behind why Scargill's Family has done what they've done leading up to him getting the baton and then running with it!
As usual with me the videos I use in My Post ARE NOT THERE BY ACCIDENT. And clearly the theme of the video is an indication of the theme of the post that follows. As I have stated before I have no problems with finding pre-existing materials that FIT MY OWN IDEA. Which means that My Own Idea CAME FIRST.
Then FINDING SOMETHING PRE-EXISTING THAT EMPHASIZES MY IDEA COMES NEXT. Which is why people have asked me for decades, how the fuck did you get THIS FROM THAT!? And I have always told them the fact that My. THIS. Was never ABOUT THAT. THAT? Happens to be something that allows Me to fill in blanks that I can't do on my own right now. Like creating My Own Music. I don't know how to read nor score music. So I can't sit and create what I sometimes hear in MY HEAD, music-wise, as I am writing, typing, drawing, ETC!
So I have to use PRE-EXISTING MUSIC that comes CLOSE TO WHAT I HEAR IN MY MIND OR IMAGINE WOULD FIT WHAT I AM WRITING.
With that typed...!?
Lemme get back to it.

Is where I will give generalized updates!
