Seldom do I see / Such Hypocrisy
Just like they were scorned lovers / they feign jealousy
The wind and the rain / Still crash upon the beach
Forgetful forever / Just as they ought to be.
~Versearrun E.K. McDowell's song diary, entry "Blistered Skies"
The main theme for the first 'season' of my personal cowboy-mythological-steampunk-sci-fi-novel/soundtrack project, Elancia Chronicles: Order of New Gods. I'm planning to have the first season of the novel done, and all of the music by the end of January. The central conflict of Season 1 is a religious conflict that breaks out between two countries who were formerly allies before leadership changed hands. Both countries call upon their separate churches to reinforce them, and all hell breaks loose.
Somewhere in the middle of this, a young girl realizes the image she has of herself and the world around her is anything but true. A man comes to terms with his place in the world. A woman tries to fill the hole in her heart with justice. Another young girl realizes she can feel love. ...and one super cool dude struts around like a bawws.
