The Dead Girl
            It has become a bit of a routine.  She would return to this same spot, right next to the bed.  It still feels so recent for her.  She and her twin sister have arrived New York.  When they found a hotel room, she remembers how much her twin had such a hard time with her bag.  She remembers the two of them in the car, chatting and laughing it up before another car slammed into them. 
    Her sister was fine, but she wasn’t.  She required a heart transplant and she certainly lost more than her heart at the time.  She was supposed to be fine.  It was supposed to be all better, but there was a mistake.  The heart didn’t match.  She required more surgery, this time with a matching heart.  She temporarily died on the table at the time, but things turned out fine.  They were supposed to be fine.  She had instructions, among them being to not get t

The Rival
            Pacing in his room, Isabelle is feeling a wave of emotions.  Brian isn’t in here, but lying in the hospital after a suicide attempt.  His family is with him and he’s yet to wake up.  She was there and couldn’t bear it anymore.  She felt panic because someone she loves is now fighting for his life, yet also anger that he tried to do it with his own hand.  Even more anger went to the cause.  She has a good ideal as to why.  He’s already been through too much in his young life and all it took was one more thing to break an already unstable dam. 
            Before she realized what she’s doing, she grabs his laptop, turning it on and pulling up his messengers.  She’s been around him enough to know how to access these things.   Bringing up one of his past chats, she already spots what she’s loo

The Guardian
   Traversing these dark streets, they all walk in silence.  All the buildings were black, yet varied in size.  The sky is a dark purple with a full moon.  It was a dark reflection of the real world, a world created within Brian’s mind.  They were all here looking for something.  Rather, someone.
   Isabelle walked by his side, along with her twin sister, Laura, Brian’s best friend, Gambito, and their mentor, Maxine.  There was one more guest travelling with them, a mysterious man named Peter, who is a Viking warrior who has been dead for centuries.  His short black hair connected to his scraggly beard.  He wore a red, sleeveless overtunic, with a hood attached, and over a long sleeved light brown tunic.  Black bracers covered his wrists, yet they were decorated with a metallic symbol and had furry edges.  Dark brown gloves covered his hands; brown pants covered the lower half of his body along with dark

An Ambitious Man
    From the audio recordings of Dr. Robert Chill.
    “What does it mean to be human?  My answer is “heavily flawed.”  We allow emotions and nostalgia to blind us to that which is truth.  We are fragile, both in body and mind.  Disease can wipe us out and with but a whisper our souls corrupted by someone meant to do us harm and in turn gain something beneficiary for themselves.  We put our lives on the line for vanity and admiration as we keep video evidence of our stunts and upload them to social media sites.  We do things that constantly call Darwinism into question and it is enough to almost make one such as myself weep.  We are a selfish people above all, full of so much pride in ourselves.  We consider ourselves to be so special and yet, individually are so selfish as to not consider others and how our actions affect them.  Such is the case with my own wife and daughter.&

  Only someone like him has the stones.
  He doesn’t give a shit about who he kills!
  We need to put him the fuck down and do it now!”

The Name
            “RrraaAARRRGGHHH!!!” cried an enraged Dr. Chill.
            The doctor drops to his knees, surrounded by wreckage while he too is showed the signs of battle.  His lab is ruined, machines smashed and short circuiting, research burned and destroyed.  His eyes fall upon his destroyed plans for his monstrous golem, a project he has been working on for so long.  He finally released the monster, only for her boy toy to destroy him!  The doctor himself is covered in burns, cuts, and bruises.  His clothes are torn, ragged, his coat almost falling off his shoulders.  Taking a finger, he presses it to his face, tracing it along the burn marks.  Energy is released and concentrated on said finger, creating a makeshift scapel, allowing him to cut as he begins to operate on himself.

Mirror and Shadow
            Darkness.  Nothing but darkness.  No light to be found, yet the floor and prison bars were so visible that a light might as well be shining on this spot.  The row of bars seems to have no end, disappearing into the darkness.  The floor was grey, yet clean.  No walls.  No ceiling. No noise.  Complete utter silence.  Brian couldn’t help, but to feel a measure of panic at the scene.  This place, created from the depths of his soul and mind, was not what he expected.  He was not sure what he expected, but it was not this. 
            “Who are you?” spoke a voice from the dark.  It is deep with a bit of a growl, booming and almost echoing in throughout.  Brian nearly jumps out of his clothes.  He stares at the bars, wondering if the voice came beyond them.  He couldn’t hel

Berserker
    Berserker - 1. A sect of Norse warriors who would fight with no armor and would continue fighting despite wounds or chance of victory.
    2. Used to say some one has flipped a shit and done something rash with no self-regard….
    3. Derived from berserkr, an Old Norse word. plural; Berserkir.
    The hut’s door flew open as Astrid hurriedly ran out.  She did not bother to check on her daughter and husband, who were in the middle of training, as she ran past them, hiking up her dress.  Unlike them, her hair was blonde.  Her hair is usually braided, but in this instance it wasn’t.  She headed straight for where the bears roamed while Helen and Ulfric watched her.
    The two held their staffs upright as Ulfric wiped the sweat from his brow.  Helen, then 13 years old, panted and mimicked her father’s action.

10 Years Ago in the Age of Vikings…
    She breathes heavily while down to one knee, holding her sword in hand and using it to get back to her feet.  Once again she’s been knocked down.  Looking across, she spots her father waiting patiently, his face betraying no worry or annoyance.  He’s a large, burly, bear of a man wearing a dark brown tunic, black bracers over his sleeves, light brown trousers and wooden brown high shoes.  His raven hair was tied into a tail with the sides shaven clean, matching his scraggly beard in color.  Though, not usually a style associated with young girls, she wore clothes that matched her father’s, which were more appropriate for training than a dress.  Her raven hair hung down to her shoulders.  A wooden shield fit for her size was attached to her left forearm.  Her name was Helen and she was 10 years of age at the time.

The Bracelet
            It’s quiet.  That or the sounds outside his room and home are simply being drowned out.  His room is adorned with posters showcasing superheroes, video game characters, famous action heroes, even models.  A black, wooden shelf stood in front of a large window, already covered by curtains that he never opens.  There was a large space that allowed for a TV to be placed there, but he used all of it to place his books, varying from novels to comic books. 
            On his nightstand, he stares at the pill bottle which stood next to a bracelet.  Since she’s been gone, Brian regularly sat by the nightstand, staring at these two objects.  The pill bottle is for when he contemplates swallowing the whole thing and the bracelet is a painful reminder of what will never come.  Sometimes just staring at that damned thing almo

    Through the woods she walks, whistling the tune to “Winnie the Pooh.”  Her hood comes down, exposing her brunette hair.  Her eyes were as green as jade and her skin revealed the signs of maturity.  Neither tall nor short, she stops and stares at this lifeless place.  Branches remained rigid and no creature scurried, yet, she felt it.  This is the place.  Her hood was connected to a long, formerly sleek, brown coat.  Her wrists were adorned with charm bracelets occupied by mini figures resembling caricatures of people.  Larger figures were attached to her belt, accompanied by a pouch, carving knife, and even vials.  The crimson shade of lipstick matched her shirt.  Black jeans matched her boots on her feet and the fingerless gloves on her hands.

Brian and his Guardian
Commissioned by akira-125.  Can find him on his tumblr as well, which is here.

This is Brian and his guardian, Helen.  Anyone who actually read my short stories may be familiar with her as she has been the subject of and appeared the following shorts: Cub, Berserker, The Guardian, and finally The Beast, The Witch, and The Dragon.   Now you may notice that she looks different from how she's described in the stories.  Well yea, I wanted her to have a modern look but combined with the Nordic style.  Also was playing around with her hair color instead of the usual blonde that Vikings are portrayed with.  Plus remember, the short stories are just concept stories, so they are subject to change or not even be used at all as I am currently writing the first book.  Depending on how things go (fingers crossed), Helen will not be introduced until the series reaches a certain point so until then, the character of Brian will not yet be aware of her.  As for Helen, aside from being his guardian, she is a Viking warrior, a shieldmaiden, a unique kind of berserker, and finally a Valkyrie.  I've read the cliffnotes version about Valkyries and they appear to be either celestial in nature or even human, but superhuman with supernatural connections and traits. Most earth born Valkyrie are said to be born of Kings.  Keyword is most.  Obviously as you could tell from my stories, she's not royalty, so she is that rare type.  She is a servant of Freyja, but also the mistress of King Bjorn (Brian in a past life and no not that Bjorn. Same first name, different people), and mother of one of his sons.  Also you may notice she's not one of the typical Vikings in the way that her primary weapon is not what you typically associate with them: her staff.  While she is well versed in other weapons, this is her favorite, taught by her father.  It is a powerful relic in itself, which she uses to channel her energy through and when she does, runic symbols would appear on it.  She can do more with it than simply smack the hell out of someone.  Some of which are things I'm keeping to myself for now.  Still she is very powerful, fierce, but loving, caring, and protective. 

Brian here, a lot of you who been following are more familiar with. He's the secondary protagonist of The Invincible World.  In the pic, he's wielding his new sword after his first one broke.  It is a gift from Freyja, who Helen has taken him and the group to see.  Also you may notice a necklace around his neck.  It is the fabled Brisingamen, another gift from Freyja, but she definitely expects it back.  She sympathized with him and could read what's in his heart.  She remembers his life as King Bjorn and how he fought for her and Odin in Ragnarok, sacrificing himself, which would lead to his rebirth centuries later.  His sword is often powered by Brisingamen and the famed necklace boosts Brian's power in other ways.  Also if you look closely, he's wearing the  friendship bracelet on his arm.  As for his sword, runic symbols will appear when activating his abilities.

Together the two are a formidable team. Helen is almost like a Stand (for you JoJo fans out there), protecting him but also possessing her own abilities and willing to kick some ass, but at times in which he has to fight his own personal battles, she will step aside and allow him to do so.

So before we begin, you can read my original pitch here.  Make sure you open in a separate window because it is pretty long and you might forget to come back here. lol  So here is an update.  I turned in Act One for my script.  Got an "A" and positive feedback but it wasn't without notes and criticisms either.  These things I have taken into account and also I have thought of additional ideals for the project.

The Invisible World: Genesis

Discover the world of Isabelle prior to and after her passing.  How did she discover her potential?  What about her family and loved ones?  How have they moved on?  How have they become involved?  How did they end up where they are now?  All these questions will be answered.

Concept

So after some feedback from classmates and fellow aspiring writers, I realized it would be a good idea to come up with something to further showcase the characters' background.  The script I'm working on now is more of a pitch movie.  Again, something I'm doing due to feedback from my professor.  I realized that to do a show, you have to get noticed.  So I got to work on writing the script for a pitch movie, sorta similar to the likes of Mortal Kombat: Rebirth among other movies and short films you'll find on youtube.  Admittedly the challenge was balancing all the characters and still making sure that Isabelle remains the hero.  Also my approach was pretty much in the middle.  By that I mean the characters had their journeys up to the point in my plot.  Understandably people will be confused and a fellow student gave me an idea to do an anthology series that gives the characters origins, how they met, and even key moments tied to the "movie."  Don't worry, I'll finish the script first and then get to work on Genesis, but thought you should know.  Overall, what I'm going for is to present a "blue print" of my vision if that makes sense.  So if I can get it down, some things won't happen the same, maybe they happen later, or maybe something else entirely happens.  Hell maybe I will keep it all intact.  I don't know.  Never done this before and this is something really ambitious on my part.  I can only hope I succeed somehow.

The Belletrist

Nathaniel Hawthorne.  Edgar Allan Poe.  Ralph Waldo Emerson.  Henry David Thoreau.  Together they form the Belletrist, the men of letters.  All men are intellectuals, yet discovered that which is invisible to the rest of the world.  Discover the secret brotherhood and the lives they lived as they make new discovers, face difficult challenges, and preserve a legacy that would remain for decades.

Concept

For this one, I decided this would definitely be a web series prequel to Hawthorne and Brown, with Nathaniel being the POV character, having left notes and letters to his family and future generations within the Custom House, his personal "Fortress of Solitude."  Daniel Hawthorne would have found and read from them.  The series will have action, but it will be mostly about exploration and discovery.  I mentioned before I had wanted to do fictional versions of real life figures and this is it.


The Invisible World: Alpha

Same world.  New time.  New Hero.  For years people believed in their existence.  Conspiracy theorists were written off as mad.  Skeptics were in mass, yet the truth remains: Lizard People are real.  They have existed before us and now are on the rise.  Most do not even realize who they are.  Perhaps they are us!  Witness the story of a young woman discovering her lineage and a whole new world hidden from our eyes.

Concept

Ok this one I've been thinking about.  I've considered adding sci-fi to the Invisible World, but considering the series is Supernatural, I don't want to alienate the concept.   I got some inspiration from Doctor Who after seeing the Silurians..  It is also based on the popular conspiracy theory about Lizard People walking among us.  This one would be both supernatural and sci-fi, providing the question if extraterrestrials exist and how.  Also reptilian figures have always played a huge role in mythology.  In Christianity, we have the serpent, in Greek, we have the Hydra, Norse, the World Serpent, and in EVERYTHING a dragon.  The reptiles are presented as these creatures that can challenge gods and are high powers within themselves.  They are in a whole other league and I think it's worth exploring.  Also this series is meant to take place after the first Invisible World, so this would take a while.  Who knows if it'll even survive.  I'm a beginning, middle, and end type.  I can look ahead to see the vision of the end. The challenge is getting there and being satisfied.

Mythology

World of Light – Heaven.  Asgard.  Olympus.  These and other pantheons create this world.  Gods, angels, beings of light inhabit this place.

World of Darkness – Home to dark creatures, vampires, werewolves, demons, and the Nightmare Man.  It is believed that before creation, there was just complete darkness.  This is where darkness reigns and some seek to set things back to how they originally were.

Dream World – Home to the things born of imagination.  The wonderful world of fantasy.  This where people go to dream, yet there are forces that live here that seek to do others harm and some who protect them.

Blue World – World of the ocean and water based beings.  Atlantis is home to this place as well as R'lyeh.

Limbo – The Invisible World and the "center of the World Tree."  It is also referred to as the "Ground Zero of Worlds" as other worlds are created through this.  Going through Limbo is also the way to travel to other worlds.  Through this world, it is also possible to create additional worlds, which means that there are other ones not known.

Earth – Physical world and home to humans, mostly made up of skeptics and those blind to that which is hidden from them.

Red World – Home to Hell, Hades, and Lake of Fire.  Demons, beings of fire, and other dark forces proclaim this as home.

Sky World – Home to the wind Element and beings of wind, including the God, North Wind.

North World – Home to the element of Ice and ice beings.  It is also home to the North Pole, where a certain jolly fat man lives.

Concept:

Again, doing something different here.  I know there are the 9 worlds in Norse Mythology and some others do have a world tree, but it is comprised of only 3 worlds.  I went the route of the former and did my own thing with it.  Something that makes sense to me and hopefully to others.  It's not final of course as I may change it, but for now, starting with 9 worlds and see what spawns.
