Sitting here, writing. Well, was. Not right now. Well, I AM writing, but... Okay, I'll just start this again.
I was sitting there, writing. An EPIC scene, I must say, that I very much enjoyed writing. Gepard was being bad-ass, as per usual, and totally talking Arius out of it. Then bam, power surge and Quinn's there to calm him. Ending the chapter, I just randomly glance at the word count:
Now, I just want to ask, WHUT?! LIKE, OMG. LIKE, TOTALLY, WHUT?! I was sitting there and BAM I'm gone over 20k! I admit it, I fangirled for a few moments. But it was okay because it was for a good cause. A very good cause.
I'm so enjoying writing this book, and I want to thank you ALL for your amazing support. Gepard Valk is up on inkpop for now. I may just be putting up around 70 pages, depends on where the next chapter ends.
Dudes, I'm actually so ecstatic right now, so I shall give thee a glimpse at what scene I was enjoying writing so much:
“You don’t get to plan this. Now shut up.” Arius was about to retort when Gepard growled, “That’s an order.” He knew that Arius would be quiet, because he followed Nochturn law. Because he knew he’d be killed if he did otherwise.
“I don’t want you here. And I’m sure if these guys knew what you were like they wouldn’t either. Just because you’ve redeemed yourself,” Gepard said, putting air quotes when he said redeemed, “to the Nochturn doesn’t mean you have to anyone else. You left us during the War, you turned against us. You were one of us, part of our team, and it’s your fault Otar died!
“It’s your fault that Hickron killed him! If you hadn’t surrendered to them and fought then he’d be here, by my side! No, actually, he wouldn’t, because I wouldn’t be in this mess if he were alive! But you, you little dipshit, you gave up! You turned sides because you thought we were going to lose! Well I’d rather have died fighting trying to save the earth, the humans, the sorcerers, every living and non-living thing than give up! You’re a weakling, Arius, and I’ll never forgive you for what you did.
“And if you even think for a second that I’m going to let you even try to lead this team, then you’ve got another thing coming to you… so be careful. Now get out of my sight. That’s an order!” Gepard shouted.
Arius was fuming, his face gone red. His fists were clenched and his teeth were grinding together. But he knew to follow orders, so he walked out of the room, slamming the door behind him.
Gepard was so angry, he could feel his powers welling up. He could feel the lightning coursing through his veins, and he knew it would be shooting around in his eyes.
He’d forgotten all about Quinn until she was in front of him, her hands clutching his wrists.
“Gepard, look at me. Gepard. Look, I’m here. See my eyes. I’m here, I’m with you. You don’t need to be angry, everything’s alright. Gepard, look.” He forced his eyes down to her and instantly felt the power ebbing, fading. Her eyes were so soft, so comforting, so… Quinn. He wrapped her in an embrace and thought back to when she’d shown up at his doorstep.
It seemed she had too, because she replied to the embrace with, “Finally decided to give me that hug, huh?”
That's actually really short, sorry if it seems long. :3 Thank you guys so much and now, I return to writing, for I am addicted to this book! It's like I'm reading it, but when I stop writing, the story stops. So I must keep writing, to see what happens next! Will Gepard and Quinn become Gepinn? Or will Darkine swoop in and save her from a treacherous life with someone who could burst with lightning at any time? What does Quinn want? What about the holograms at Klicksheb? Were they random? What about his brother being some super-human who fights supernatural beings? And what does the Nochturn REALLY want with Gepard?
This is all to be told in the next hundred pages or so... and then there's the ACTUAL plot. Yes, those were just side-plots, twists as you call them. The main plot is centred around the holograms that attacked Klicksheb. Kinda. This band of sorcerers are going to do a spell that kills 3.5 million humans/sorcerers to gain immortality. The Nochturn want Gepard to stop them... but what no one knows is that the Immorts (that's what I'm calling them for now) need Gepard to complete the spell. They need him to use his lightning powers. So that's another twist. He's walking right into their trap.
Is this a clever plot?
SORRY FOR LONG POST. GO READ SKYRIL'S BELOW BECAUSE IT'S IMPORTANT.
