RUN : A Scene in the 13th Chapter & Changes

Advertisements

The 13th chapter  entitled Dagger of Memories continues  in this 2nd scene where I have Cristen  coming  face to face with the council  who is in  werewolf form . The scene  ended  with a  total of  704  words.

SOMETHING SINISTER RECAP

In the last  scene that I wrote a couple of weeks ago  Sirena and her friend Eli  went up the mountain in search  for their friend Gabby  .  However  I ended with  Sirena and Eli in danger as Sirena suddenly screamed because of a loud piercing  noise  that she heard in her head and  Eli  trying to help her. But before he can two  growling  werewolves  stand behind him.

Last  time  I was  trying to figure out whether  I was going to have Adrian come save the day but  I decided to have Cristen come to the rescue this time but just in this scene.

 RUN SCENE SUMMARY

Cristen and the rest of the  pack are coming from the  town with their divers  mud  on (I will write a post later about divers mud)and they are  following  Sirena’s jeep  that they heard go up the mountain. 

Cristen  at this point is kind of in a funk because  he had  to learn through  Adrian that Sirena was one of them a canineruh  werewolf.  He not only blames himself but the  earthdiver  that continues to taunt him. The earthdiver  he believes  should have told him about Sirena not Adrian.

He hears  the earthdiver taunting Sirena and the council in werewolf form getting ready to attack Eli.  And so he races  to  them . Trying to get the council away from Sirena and  Eli  he  tells them to run but  they are frightened . So he  knocks  Eli out to distract the werewolves and  urges  Sirena  to run .  As he  fights the  other  werewolves  off but they are  too strong  .  They don’t go  for Eli  but  instead   they run after Sirena.

CHANGES FROM THE  1ST DRAFT VS 2ND DRAFT

So  that is the  whole  of this scene.  I wasn’t really going to write it this way and going to let  Adrian save her from the  members of the werewolf council  but in my 1st draft Cristen  saved  her from them.

There is a difference in this draft  vs  my 1st draft.  In the first draft  this particular scene is in Sirena’s POV and she already  found Gabby and in this scene in my 1st  draft there is no Eli.  In  the first draft  within this  scene she  constantly blacks  out and then Cristen changes  into his werewolf  form to  fight  the council. But in this draft he doesn’t because of the barrier  of the diversmud which keeps him from changing .   He also  in the first draft is able  to  weaken the council  members  making them  run off and leave Sirena behind.  But in this draft they are too strong for him and  I’m guessing  that would make sense because  they are centuries  old and he is  only  a  teenager.  So there is a lot of changes  within  this scene.

Cristen as a  character struggle a lot  because of his powers  so I  have him continuing  his internal struggle  with himself that is continued to be acerbated by the  earthdiver even as  he battles the council members this first time.

The next scene will be in Sirena’s pov .

EPISTOLARY WRITING IN FICTION : A TALE OF TWO JOURNALS

Advertisements

When I started outlining my drafts for my work in progress werewolf novel During the Blue Hour. I decided  to use epistolary writing for some of my scenes.

Epistolary writing is where  the novel  is written in  mostly documents which include  letters and journal entries. The most popular example of epistolary  writing in fiction was in 1897 when Dracula was published. 

Bram Stoker the author of Dracula  uses  not only one  type of epistolary writing but three; letters , journal entries and newspaper clippings to tell  the story of Dracula and how he tried to move to England and   interacted with Van Helsing. There are letters between two other characters as well.

And another cool  thing is that Dracula is not even the first example of  epistolary  writing .  The earliest  known example is a  book  written  in 1740  called Pamela .  This book is told through letters about a  girl  who is a maid and sends the letters to her parents.

So there you go epistolary  writing  is  mostly compilation  of  letters  between characters .

In my  work in progress I  use journal entries  that my main character Sirena  writes to her  missing  father about her everyday  life  and what is going on in her society .  But that is not the only journal  there is in my novel.  There  is also  the journal  of her father . These two journals play  an important  part in my  novel because without the  two journals  we  would  not know my  main character  in the same way  if I didn’t  have her writing those entries . And through her father’s  journal  not only  will my character but the  reader will  find out things  about  her father  and the  werewolves as a  whole.

So  it’s a lot of information and  basically  a tale  of  two journals  that  will ultimately explore the truth ,  hopes and dreams  of the  two related  characters .

THE TV SHOW  MERLIN  AS THE INSPIRATION AND INFLUENCE BEHIND MY NOVEL’S CHARACTERS .

Advertisements

I know I mentioned this before . But with Merlin being my top favorite show . I couldn’t  help get  a little inspiration from the show  for my novel.

I’m sure all writers do this. You read  a novel  or a watch a show  and then  while writing,  some  qualities  of who you watched or read  spills over  into your  manuscript.  Most  writers  don’t do this intentionally  but  are  therefore influenced  by their favorite characters .

And although your characters might resemble other characters from fictional worlds   once  a writer starts  writing  the  characters  become their own .

For instance in my work in progress novel During the Blue Hour there a  three characters  from Merlin that have influenced  two of my characters .

So the  first one is the character Merlin himself.  Even though my book has nothing to do with sorcerers or  witches . The character Merlin embody the love interest  Adrian within  my novel  who I see  is sort of resembling dark  Merlin  when I see  merlin ready  to use his magic  against an opponent.

My character  Adrian  although is very  dark and stays dark and doesn’t get to really see the  softer side of him.

Think of if Merlin was  turned into a  more  edgier darker  character than he was already.  I mean those scenes where  the ones would get him mad . They were intense .

Another character is Kilgharrah  the great  dragon .  Since I loved and enjoyed the characteristics and qualities he had  when I first  created my earthdiver raven  character  I thought of  Kilgharrah . 

A  character who basically talks in riddles and doesn’t tell  the whole truth.  I feel like that was strongly Kilgharrah  .

I mean  when  reading my earthdiver  character . People  will not really notice but  the  idea behind his character is because  of my love  for the Great Dragon character Kilgharrah. 

And the third character I use as  influence is  Arthur .  My  earthdiver raven character  when transforming  into his human form  has  the qualities  and characteristics  of Arthur and will even look like him a little bit. The  first glimpse of his human form can be seen briefly in my chapter  2.

THE CURSED & IMMORTALITY OF THE  BLUE HOUR WEREWOLVES

Advertisements

About a week ago  I wrote a post about exploring the immortality of werewolves . I explored  that in most werewolf folklore that the werewolf is not necessarily immortal because they can die  from their  wounds. Although they can regress their age and appear young. 

I  mentioned five types  of immortality:

  •  prolonged  lifespan or  eternal youth.:  where   a being lives  and stays  young but they can  be killed if mortally wounded.( most common in  fiction  and explored through objects such as the fountain of youth or a magic  elixir )   
  • Undeath  immortality –  where a being  has died  but they are still  alive . (example vampire  or zombie)
  • Reincarnation   immortality – where a being  dies  but  comes  back to life  over and over  again  in different  forms.
  • Postmortality-  where  a being lives on in the afterlife after  they die.  ( examples  of post mortality  is usually explored  in many  cultures famous ones  being heaven and vahalia )
  • Absolute immortality – is where  the  being cannot be harmed in anyway  or  die  at all and is basically indestructible    and then is one  of the reasons why it can be explained  why immortality  is  used as a curse in some fiction  novels.

In my work in progress  werewolf novel my werewolves are necessarily immortal.  Since  (spoiler) there are not  and never will be bitten humans who turn into werewolves in my novel. My  werewolves are hereditary werewolves who can live  and  have lived  for ages due to a curse they  enabled  as regular wolves . Therefore  being in reverse where  they can turn human. 

There are different  types of  these  cursed  werewolves  that have lived  forever  and it is hard  to kill them. The main type of cursed  werewolves   that can live  forever are the  original wolves  werewolves and  their  offspring .  Practically nothing  can kill these  werewolves   except other  werewolves .  In my  work in progress novel  I only mention  6  throughout the whole  series .  There are probably  others  but  they are just around.  

This  type  of immortality  matches  somewhat with  the prolonged  lifespan  or eternal  youth  immortality . My werewolves can look  young or old  forever however it is based  on how old they were as a wolf.

My original wolves  can  mate  with  humans thus creating a  2nd type  of werewolf.  These werewolves  cannot live forever . They  can grow old and live up to 50 years .

The  reincarnation immortality  and  absolute  immortality   are also types of immortality that my werewolves  have  but are very  rare among my werewolves.

EXPLORING THE   IMMORTALITY  OF  WEREWOLVES IN FICTION / FOLKLORE

Advertisements

From angels  to elves,  and especially  vampires who can live for  gazillion of years , you say immortality is always a given when writing  supernatural  creatures .  But  what’s  the immortality  of  werewolves look like ? Can  they  usually live forever  in fiction?  Let’s  explore  the immortality  of  werewolves  within fiction.

First what is immortality within the context of  supernatural  creatures  ? 

 Immortality is usually explored in fiction  to explain the theory  of death and  existence  as a  whole.   

Immortality  to humans  are  where  the human is usually exempt from death. Eternal everlasting life  where  we can cheat death  in a  magical way.  The human does  not and cannot    die.

As in terms  of  supernatural or mythological creatures.  The creature cannot  be harmed   in  anyway and they  live forever. 

There are usually five  types  of immortality:

  • Prolonged  lifespan or  eternal youth.:  where   a being lives  and stays  young but they can  be killed if mortally wounded.( most common in  fiction  and explored through objects such as the fountain of youth or a magic  elixir) 
  • Undeath  immortality –  where a being  has died  but they are still  alive . (example vampire  or zombie)
  • Reincarnation immortality – where a being  dies  but  comes  back to life  over and over  again  in different  forms.
  • Postmortality-  where  a being lives on in the afterlife after  they die.  ( examples  of post mortality  is usually explored  in many  cultures famous ones  being heaven and Valhalla )
  • Absolute immortality – is where  the  being cannot be harmed in anyway  or  die  at all and is basically indestructible    and then is one  of the reasons why it can be explained  why immortality  is  used as a curse in some fiction  novels.

Now let’s  delve into werewolf  immortality  and if it  is possible. 

In  my  research from  most  sources  say that in  werewolf folklore  a werewolf  in not immortal  because they can die  of their  wounds and  the closest  thing I found of  werewolves being  immortal is when talking about the Wendigo.( I will have a separate post  later about the wendigo) 

Werewolf folklore says  werewolves  in general can have a long lifespan close or up to  over 2000 years. Thus making their ageing process slow.  In  other words they can still look forever  young  similar  to a vampire  in a way  except they are not  dead.

They  can also heal themselves .   If they shapeshift more they are said  to stay younger  longer  than some .

But if the  definition of what immortality is true.  Then  original folklore about werewolves not being  immortal is not  true.

Infact they might  just be immortal if you take  and  use  the prolonged   lifespan / eternal youth  type   immortality .
