Cathartic Nightmare: Introduction (Story time)

Before i paste the contents of the document here - let me update you. This is the novel/zine format that i'm working on. This is copyright to me, however critique and advice are more than welcome. If you want to critique this, hand me advice - either email me, find my discord - follow me on social media. The other option is that i'll be opening up a forum section FOR this content. I'll post in the forum to mention that a post has been made, and that you can then take it from there to read it and critique it.


At some stage i'll need to pay for an editor, because i'm broke AF in reality and know that these things cost money. So if you enjoy this sort of thing, please please donate here:

Beyond that? Enjoy. I'll be putting a CHAPTER per blog post up, and there will be no illustrations/imagery with it as of yet. I would like to finish the thing first and then decide how that goes.


Again Reminder: This content is copyright to me, Kieran Somerville. Inspiration and Influence happen all the time. Plagarism and blatant IP theft are different. If you want to share this just share the blog post around, don't copy the text as your own.


Introduction


I thought I was going to know everything about my future. That understanding it all by living through it was going to make shit easier. Looking back on that I obviously was entirely wrong on that one. So much for taking a gamble on the future and losing it all.


The fact that I was ripped from existence and made into a monster doesn’t help anyone’s story progression either. I guess you could say I tripled the government’s bounty on that one. They got more than they bargained for when they screwed with me.


Don’t let anyone tell you that 2.5 kids in Upper Minneapolis and having a White Collar Job by the time you’re 30 is the dream. I’m no “YUPPIE” from Dinkytown, I'm just a Gen Y/Millennial who got roped into being the new toy for a government weapon program. There’s no reset button on this console man, you’re just stuck in the hamster wheel of life.


Why was I a weapon? Why did they take a “sweet innocent” girl and turn her into several different facets that were no longer the same gender - maybe even a monster or two? We’ll never know (lies) - We’ll JUST NEVER KNOW! Ok, lies - we do know, and there’s only so many spoilers I can give you before things turn to dust.


Spoiler Alert: If we don’t fix everything by the time you get that “Dream” - everything falls apart. No shoving a primal beast inside a magical sphere is going to save your ass this time. It will just be pitch black, empty and everything dead.
