It is All Relative

Get Ready for the Storm...

RELATIVITY is a character drama that centers around a team of superheroes who operate in the fictional Gale City. The focus of the series, however, is the people behind the mask, and how they juggle work, life and love while donning a mask at night. While essentially a prose-comicbook series, Relativity is also firmly planted in the mystery genre as the team investigates and solves various crimes, while also contending with a menagerie of strange and interesting villains.

Lost and Found Scene 1 - Relativity Episode 1The light above the vanity flickered, throwing the room into a series of shadows. Babs Stone tapped the plastic casing with her finger, hoping to jiggle the bulb back into place. The room fell into complete darkness. After a moment, the light snapped back on, shining bright and steady. The prostitute leaned back towards the mirror.
Pulling up her chin, Babs checked her throat carefully. While she didn’t have a policy against rough stuff, she didn’t like when her clients left marks. It made it difficult when picking up another john, not to mention she simply didn’t like bruising on her neck. Satisfied, she tousled her long platinum blonde hair so it framed her face, then twisted open a cylinder of Fire Engine Red and  smeared it across her lips. She could hear shuffling and smiled at the thought of the man on the other side of the door.
While she had several regulars, Babs liked Denny the best. He was always clean and smelled nice. More than that, he always called

   Dark Flame gripped the rungs of the ladder and slowly climbed to the top of the tall metal structure. "I've never been up here because it's always closed for refurbishing."
   Torrent took the steps two at a time. "The city just keeps that sign up so kids won't vandalize it. Us 'in the know' come here all the time."
   The observation tower in Gale Park was 100 feet tall and allowed an impressive view of the mile long grassy area that bordered the uptown area. Though the tower itself appeared rickety from a distance, once she was at the top, Dark Flame was surprised how sturdy it was.
   "I love coming up here." Torrent said with a smile.
   "Makes it easier to keep an eye on things, that's for sure." Pulling off her gloves, she used them to fan her face. "It's getting hot, and it's just early June. I hope we don't have another brutal summer."

The Beginning...

Black Torrent commission by shamserg

Twenty years ago the Black Torrent patrolled the streets of Gale City, protecting the citizens, until he disappeared without a trace...

Michael Bruce is one of the world's richest men, head of a real estate empire that spreads to all corners of the world. Many wonder what is the secret to his success, but Michael's secrets travel far beyond the boardroom...onto the rooftops of Gale. Taking over the role of the Black Torrent, the young CEO follows in the footsteps of his father, keeping the streets safe from crime. When Martin Bling, the billionaire casino mogul, shows up on the scene, Torrent and his team start digging into the man's less-than-ethical affairs. They are aided in their investigation by the mysterious Dark Flame, a relative newcomer to the crimefighting scene. Expecting to uncover corporate corruption and dirty business dealings, what they find threatens to shake Michael to the core – a connection to Bling's girlfriend he never dreamed of, and a revelation that the past he knew wasn't what he thought it to be. As crimefighting and family drama collide, the team must deal with secrets, lies and betrayals, and the prospects of an uncertain future. -- Click to Read

The Best Laid Plans....

Journal Entry: Sun Feb 22, 2015, 6:10 PM

And proof that someone is determined to keep me from finishing this website.

I have been deathly ill all weekend. Am on meds now, but they're not helping much yet. Haven't slept much, so I'm too tired and strung-out to do much on the computer. I know I owe people stuff. Notes, info on commissions, etc. I promise I'll get to them soon. I feel like death warmed over, and this cough/sore-throat is from hell. Just hopeful I'll start to feel better in the next day or two and get back to doing stuff.

Current Episode - Inked

INKED -- A series of prostitutes are murdered, their bodies mutilated beyond recognition. It is soon discovered that the girls were not targeted for their profession, but the pictures on their skin. As Team Torrent becomes embroiled in the investigation, they find themselves pulled into the world of body art, where inking is serious business and tattoos can mean more than they seem. Thankfully, a trusted ally holds the key that can crack the case. But what happens when that ally refuses to help? -- Click to Read

No worries. I actually meant to submit all of them to the group, but ended up on the phone and then closed it out. I'll request those be added soon.
