My musing on the last post made me decide to write down my chart of the encounters we've had and their generations. I will miss a great deal of the stories here, it's not my intent to capture them all.
Come to think of it I think I did this before during a bad day.
Generation 1 - Discovering monsters, going mad, and following clues
Marble Hornets of course
Just Another Fool
now, when The Tutorial and Seeking Truth hit, that started the shift into Gen 2. M showed us we can live through his stalking, Zeke was the first ballsy sunuvabitch who wanted to fight back. Both marks of inspiration
In Generation 2 - We can identify the monster easier, and understand what has happened to past victims. Our curiosity is aroused, and we attempt to rationalize an irrational thing.
The three sages, and the spawn therein, my blog included.
A time full of titles, false starts, mindscrews and insanity.
So in this short review, we're pretty much current? So what starts generation 3? Will it start on the Solstice? or has it already started? Maybe it started when I told everyone to knock off the fantasy life most of us were living, or maybe when Nessa was....well, you know.
All I can say is that there's a responsibility to tell your story, and tell it true, keep it real, and don't be afraid to say you're scared. We all are.
