The Ward Estate.

Hey everyone Mastermind here, I’ve been slacking on my creative writing recently because along with school work which is taking up a lot of my time I also have a novel in the works. To counteract this I’ve decided to post another novel I was working on that sort of came to a standstill some time ago so it may suddenly stop without much of a warning, though I have started working on it again so there might be more. I may end up posting some character presentations for the main characters soon but I’m not sure yet.

Hey Mastermind here, and look an actually filled writing prompt it’s been an age. I finished this about a month or two ago but was going to add a second part so didn’t upload it, there may still be a second part if I ever get my ass in gear. This is sort of in the immortals verse but I’m not to good with continuity so it’s those characters with a vaguely different setting and mildly edited backgrounds, I believe.

Feel free to tell me what you think.

One month on.

Hey Mastermind here it’s been almost a month since my last post and surprise surprise I’ve posted nothing of interest. This may not change until July as I have exams coming up but I’m going to try a little harder this time.

And another word for useless…

Hello everyone Mastermind here! Did you know that my name is a synonym for useless? Sorry for the long absence I’ve had stuff ready to post and everything but I just haven’t gotten round to it. I’ve got two weeks holiday ahead of me so I’m going to try and get more stuff on here. Though of course I may just sleep the whole week so no promises.

Supernatural facebook fanfic.

Hey everyone Mastermind here. I still haven’t finished any of the writing prompts I’ve started recently because inspiration for the novel I’m trying to write has been flowing like a river. So I’ve decided to post some of my fanfics instead because I happen to be a huge nerd who’s in way to many fandoms. This one, as the title would suggest, is for Supernatural which is possibly the only fandom I’ve actually finished fanfics for but I’m working on others. This is also on AO3 with the possibilities of updates so feel free to check it out there and leave me kudos. This came into being during a rather boring 2 hour lecture on the dangers of social media and the internet in general that I was forced to attend. Warning for sexually suggestive themes, swearing, and everything else associated with Supernatural.

Soap Opera.

Hey everyone Mastermind here, so my life recently went from comical to borderline soap opera and as you can see that hasn’t left me with much time to get on here but I’m back now. Well hopefully anyway. Some writing did get done during this brief hiatus but unfortunately, or fortunately in some cases, it was only to do with my main book. However there will be a writing prompt or two up very soon.

What’s in a name?

Hello people Mastermind here. Originally this next post was supposed to be a writing prompt that I’d put in the finished folder but as it turns out I haven’t finished it. So instead you get one of my pet peeves, names. I don’t mean names in general, I don’t care if you have a posh name, a common name, a foreign name, or a local name. No, my problem is choosing character names. I mean it’s not so bad when the thing you’re writing is set in modern times, or even in the future, but as soon as I set something in the past or a fantasy world I hit a solid brick wall. Everyone expects different races (and I mean fantasy races such as elves, dwarves, humans, etc) to have names specific to their race and at least mildly unusual, no one’s going to be to thrilled with an elf prince called Bob are they? Though I digress because elves and all that stuff aren’t my current problem, no my problem involves angels. I write mostly urban fantasy at the moment and my current big project is a novel involving angels and demons and all that sort of stuff. When I  started I thought learning about angels would be easy, after all, I already had a basic understanding of them and they belong to the three major monotheistic religions so there had to be plenty of information on them. What I hadn’t counted on was there being too much information about them, as well as at the same time, not enough. Since they belong to three different religions no one can agree on who is who, what everyone does, and where they are. I’ll give you an example, there are supposedly 7 archangels but there is no definitive answer as to who they are, what they do, and what their position in heaven is. Is Lucifer an archangel? Some say yes, some say no, some say he was but isn’t anymore, I even found one site that contested his theoretical existence. At the same time there is a lack of angel names altogether, which can make it hard if a third of your characters are angels and they all need names. Then there are the demons, because of course they need names as well, but it’s hard to separate fallen angel and demon which makes it hard when you have to name both. It’s gotten to the stage where I’ll use the same name with a different spelling just to widen my options a bit. Still there is a plus side to all this name research. If I ever have kids they’re going to get called something bizarre yet meaningful.

Michael.

Hello everyone I’m Michael, not to be confused with the archangel though he may be around here somewhere. I’ve been told to present myself because not only was I in the last prompt fill but I’ll probably be in the next one as well. I belong in the Immortals verse most of the time, though I occasionally make forays into other verses if my expertise are required. As for my expertise I’m an odd jobs man of sorts, a lethal odd jobs man. I have no idea what I’m supposed to be telling you so to start off I have a younger brother Jay, who is good friends with Alice, and two older siblings Kyle and Theresa, who we avoid like the plague. Jay and myself are both independents though we recently allied ourselves with Marcus’s family. Uh next up I look to be in my late teens, I’m tall and fairly well built, with short black hair and blue eyes. I like motor bikes, rock music, weapons, football, and Daniel. Yep that seems like everything if you have any questions feel free to ask, if I’m busy I’m sure Jay will answer for me. Bye.
