I love to laugh,
ha ha ha haaa,
loud and long and clear
Often I wonder why I took the time to write. I felt compelled to put down the ideas in my head but until recently I didn't know why, when I read this twitter thread by @kat_kuhl: https://twitter.com/kat_kuhl_/status/1156246912879738882
"...I adore mythologies. All of this stuff that I get sullen over is owned by [corporations] BECAUSE people love it and tell stories about it and want to hear more (making them valuable $$ assets) so there's the potential for us to do the good work of storytelling through them...It's hard for me to love star wars fully, because star wars is a corporate entity that spews propoganda, often carelessly. It's one of our mythologies with potential, but i don't think it's in the hands of people who care about us learning to do anything other than obey and buy...This is how I feel about superhero stuff, disney period, any form of storytelling you'd think of as culturally important that is now owned by a corporation instead of the people. I can't love a corporate agent."
I agree. It's as important to write and tell your own stories as much as free speech is a right. I love Star Wars, Marvel, Disney, etc. But how long did I have to wait, do I have to wait, for them to tell the stories I want to here with the characters I love? So I did it myself.
Here you will find a story, and soon many more, of three children set out on adventure. They're the characters I wanted to see when I was young, tackling problems that I had, enjoying things that I did. They inhabit the sci-fi world I grew up watching, with the fantasy powers I read about.
You know what's great about sci-fi? You can write about the world and how to make it better. There's no limits.
The Wild Beasts of Anthony Mannis

In the nation of Atos, where technology and the unexplainable co-exist, a boy with the ability to imagine monsters into reality revolts against the police state in order to rescue his abducted family.
