ok.. if you didn't see my last post check it out first - because this post is kind of related to it.

In a way.

Yes, so.. writing.. and stuff.
Ask anyone what I'm good at you'll probably get a confused look and a response akin to "hah!".. maybe. But what I AM good at is ideas. Specifically story ideas. Perhaps not the most original ideas in the world, but as many people have shown - its not all about what you say, but how you say it (see me doing an impression of an Eddie Izzard sketch to do with JFK right now). Anyhow.. I have, at any one time, about 10 reasonably formed ideas for a piece of fiction - but in variable formats.

For example.. one may be a written story. Another may be a series of written stories. Some may be for a movie, or a TV series. Some however may be a little different.

Sometimes I get an idea that I can convert between any format. These are the ones I hang on to.. they stick in my head. I don't get many of them.. but I REALLY want to work on the ones I do.

One such idea is a saga I've named Twilight: Prophecy.

I've been wanting to create this idea in one for or another for over two years. Its a three part futuristic saga, set in London, that follows two characters (and later more) through a supernatural cyber-punk end of the world - and how they are the only ones with the power to stop it.
I won't go into much more detail, because it wouldn't make much sense all in one lump - and it would be boring for you when I get to make it.

However it does feature:

A female lead character
Funky Gadgets
Supernatural Cults
Vampires and Werewolves
Guns.. lots of guns.

Sound interesting..? I hope so.

Now as I was doing the work on choebe's drawing it occured to me... I've always wanted to do a web comic, and Twilight would be perfect material for a webcomic. An actual comic as opposed to all those humour strips you see out there.. something that has a story. Sure you can comment on things, have other stuff in there with it - but it has a proper arc to it.

See now I know I can write it. I know I can make it a success (ie lots of people read it - money isn't the goal here, would be a nice bonus though) but what I can't do is draw the damn thing.

See where I'm going here?

This is my formal plea to anyone... everyone... want to hook up with me and do a webcomic? I need someone to do/draw the art.. co-credit and everything. I really want to do this.

and choebe? I'd love it if it was with you - you're uber talented and everyone thinks something would work out well. Fancy it?
