summary
near-future political sci-fi manifesto (of lies)

label intro:
scene black with dissolve
"0. ORANGE, APPLE, MONKEY."

d "Have you ever thought about an orange while you ate it?"
d "At the microstructural level, is it any less complex than us? Cells, DNA, chromosomes, etc.?"
x "It doesn't have any feelings!"
d "Ever peel away the skin and fascial layers in a human cadaver?"
x "Why? Is it like peeling apart an orange?"
d "Reminds me, in some way. Yes."
d "What about a chicken as you rip apart the meat from its bone? Severing its sinews and tendons?"
d "Or have you thought about the components that make up a hamburger or hot dog?"
d "Have you imagined the actual flesh and tissue and what it would look like under a microscope
with much of the higher level macro and mesostructure destroyed and only the cellular structure
still extant?"
x "Are you trying to convince me to be a vegetarian?"
d "I think it is important for us to be very self-aware of the importance of all life--the
importance of every life we take or change or alter."
d "It is especially important for someone in my position."
d "I do not take any of this lightly."
x "No, you don't have to do this! Please, let me go! I'm begging you! I won't say anything!"
x "I promise! DON'T DO THIS TO ME! DON'T DO THIS!!!"
d "Relax. This is perfectly humane. There are no pain receptors in the brain."
d "You won't feel a thing."

updates
12/20/13: i will finish this or die trying. =P goal is 1 month. urk, i'm dead. symbiosis failed. wat?
10/9/13: urgh. still writing. progress is hard to estimate because the story is still fluid and my outlines keep changing on me. but i think it's finally starting to take on its final shape. maybe.
8/6/13: ok. had to reorganize the scenes. an early scene was too powerful and dominated everything after it.
would be fine for a short story, but not for this. pushed the scene back. seems better now. this beast keeps
wanting to get bigger. urgh. it's been a bit of a slog. a lot of ideas to juggle. but disparate/competing elements
slowly falling into their proper order. i hope. a ton of writing left to do on this one. gah.
8/2/13: urgh. still trying to wrap my head around all of the parts of this story and its different endings.
i try to work quickly, but i think this might take me a month. or two. dunno.
7/31/13: ok, time to get serious.
7/18/13: just this for now.

FINALLY, i get to put the church of the recursive walnut into a story! :lol:
was gonna do it in planet of meat.

edit: dam. i don't like some of the stuff i've written. the main plot is boring me. not really getting any inspiration either.
might have to set it aside temporarily and work on something else.
grrr. sucks cuz there are some things in this that i really like.

edit2: hrmmm ... starting to get a little traction. but still kinda stuck in the mud.

gonna rebuild from scratch. need to cut out lots of stuff - storylines, characters, ideas, concepts, etc.
trying to be overambitious turned it into garbage. yay.
reboot.

will shift to black water until i get the story back under control and streamline the plot. my bad. QQ

edit: hmm, i shouldn't bother doing updates until this sucker is done. reading through my past posts, they're all kinda like 'whine whine whine', 'blah blah blah', etc. all i seem to be doing is posting my tedious struggles to get this stupid thing written, lol. so i'll just go silent on this until it's pretty much complete, heh.

If I ever find the time. TT__TT
I have a stockpile of stories and unfinished projects, but no way to work on them right now. I've been wrapped in an invisible straitjacket and going ever more deeply insane.

This is how I've felt on the inside for the past 5 years.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111111111!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111111111111!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

This is me on the outside.
^_^

I WILL get back and finish off these VNs. Or die trying.
^_^
