Yes, there is a clue to the video in the title tonight lol!
You may, or may not remember that just about a month ago, I mentioned a friend, who had given me a cameo role in one of his stories, someone I know as Jonathan Darksong, though I’m very sure thats not his real surname, even if the first name is!
Well over recent years, he’s written (or co-written) a whole series of stories about the fictional metropolis, River City. Seriously, its amazing that any sane villain would set foot in the place, given how many superhero’s and heroines there are in that city, but anyway. Or maybe thats the whole thing of being a super villain, you positively (and perversely) enjoy taking them on?
Anyway, in the last few days, he’s issued an offer, or a challenge, depending on how you look at it, for others to have a play in the sandlot named River City, as part of an anthology to be posted just before Christmas. Principally, create your own ‘super’ and introduce them into the criminal hub, that is River City.
Now, normally I would have no chance of doing such a thing, time issues and all that. But this month, I have a week off, so I might be looking to rise to the challenge. The obvious one for me would be ‘Flapper Girl’ but seriously, I cant think what super powers she could possibly have? if anyone can, please tell me! I’d love to write it, but cant think how to make it work. JD has suggested a character called Robotica, half human, half cybernetic, which does appeal, and I already have a few ideas for.
Oh, and apparently Ms Brooks is unavailable, seems a super villain has already grabbed her, and done something dastardly to her, lucky woman! He did say he was going to do so, just didnt expect it to happen so soon!
The video, well, I thought this was as apt as it could get. And lets face it, I need little excuse to play a Jim Steinman song, so lets go with it.
