I feel as though I should get a prize. In a moment of unprecedented… - The Tarnished Mirror of the World

parenthesisedSep. 6th, 2008 12:14 pm

I feel as though I should get a prize. In a moment of unprecedented genius, I managed to log in here as light_maiden  and make my reincarnation parenthesised  omnipotent. In my mind this is a little like time travel.
In other words... I'm going to be able to go and rescue Prior... Very Soon!


However, as well as merely spamming you about my administrative prowess, I thought I'd try talking about something interesting. At the moment I am spending most of my spare energy on The Book of Doom (if you know me, you are probably very bored of hearing about this.) But what you don't know about is the prequel.

You see, Magic that originated during the latter year of the war. In fact, magic is a living organism. And some military genius (and yes, I use the phrase with the strictest irony) stumbled across this and discovered that it made people ill. Can you say biological warfare? Whereupon, like mustard gas, this literally backfired.

So it gets into their systems, and makes them ill. Ill to the point of death. Only...its alive. And it wants to stay alive. It revives them and subverts their DNA. But while the "virus" is active it can't be held in a human body either. The body needs to change to contain it. The number and the form of the change depends on the victim's original DNA and the strength of the "virus".

(Are you getting all of this? I promise - its infinitely less confusing in my head. The problem is that I can't be bothered to manipulate paint into drawing me a flowchart. There's a whole lot more, but I'm skipping it as its not 100% relevent)

The people with the magic/virus active become supernatural creatures. Essentially we get...

...<b>SHELLSHOCKED VAMPIRES!</b>


In my head I have another story unfolding about a shellshocked vampire doctor at the front. But in my book I have a medical journal from
this era.

In the case of Subject B.P., the overall affects are less beneficial. Encouragingly, although the dreams have not desisted, he otherwise seems to have recovered from symptoms of his shell shock for the majority of the month. It is only in the three days around the full moon that this changes; he becomes extremely agitated and is inclined towards disassociation, loss of pain and manic episodes. It is unusual for him to eat or sleep at all in the nights surrounding the moon, even with the assistance of hypnosis. During the night of the full moon itself, we are forced to lock him in a cell, but by dawn he has usually inflicted some damaged upon himself. In addition, his self-disgust seems to have increased significantly since his infection, possibly due to the frequent loss of control. Although the disease saved his life he seems dissatisfied and we are forced to keep him under observation to prevent him from harming himself. Subject P.T, in contrast...
