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

   Melody twisted her mouth to the side and closed the newspaper. It was filled with the same old stuff. Aside from a story about the city hiring 200 more police officers, nothing was going on that was important enough to keep an eye on.
   Resting her chin on her hand, she sighed. The lull in activity might have been welcome if things in her own life were more interesting. As it was, they were getting more boring by the minute.
   The bell rang. Sara Wolff smiled as she approached the counter. "Good morning."
   Though it was a customer, Melody couldn't help but feel disappointed it was just her friend. "This is the third time this week you've been in. I don't think you've ever come in that often before."

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
