A vast change in tone from my last post. The title for this is taken from the Norwegian TV drama Skam, as the story is inspired by a dream I had about some characters from the show. The names and everything else are my own. This has been in my head for a while since I had the dream a couple weeks ago, and I felt like I needed to get it out. I put a trigger warning in the tags because it is a bit dark.
So I have this alter-ego. My friends know of her. Her name is Andromeda Pennyworth. She's the richest woman in the world. And this is her story.
This is an idea I came up with last night, kind of on the fly. I'm sure my inspiration came from something I saw or read once, but it's a short little piece about the Greek Olympian gods in a modern setting, what I think they would be doing if they were to be real people in a real city. I like how this one turned out and I'm kinda proud of it at the moment.
I started this like a month ago and I'm tired of trying to write it so I kind of just did whatever with the ending, but I liked the premise of it. If I didn't post it now it was never gonna get finished, so here it is.
The final project for my Creative Writing class this semester was to edit one of the other stories we'd written over the course of the class, and I chose The Skin Stealer. I added more to it and gave it a new title, and this is the final version. I like how it turned out.
So yeah. I feel like this story is falling apart and I've lost my mojo for it, but I don't want to abandon it. Part 10 will be the last chapter. If you're still reading it and you're still invested, thanks I guess? I hope it doesn't suck.
I apologize for the huge delay on this one, but writer's block is a hell of a bitch. At this point though I have definitely decided I'm going to try to condense the story into ten parts, so we're coming up on the last stretch. Hopefully I can finish the last two parts without much of a delay this time, but we'll see.
Sorry for the amount of time it took to post this one, but finals week and no classes has rendered me lazy and useless. I think maybe I still might try to squeeze the story into 10 parts. I keep going back and forth on it.
So at this point I know this is definitely going to be longer than 10 parts. Maybe 20? I don't know. We'll see. This one is a little longer than the others.
