The Animal Warrior/ An update of my story
First off, let me say, happy Valentine's day one and all and I hope you guys got lots of candy (and some loving). And to those who are single and looking for love, maybe next year. I, myself am looking for someone.
Anyway, I know I haven't written any more stories for a long time. For one thing, I am busy with school and I don't have a whole lot of time to do stuff (although, I have gotten a few ideas of which I think are pretty good.) But this weekend is a long one for me, and what a better way to spend it than creating a short story (ok, there are probably quite a few other better things to be doing, but this is still fun and I'm going to be lonely this weekend.) So that is what I am going to do.
My new short story is a sort of short prequal to my novel I am doing, "The Animal Warrior and the Quest for the Sword" (again, it's a working title but I'm thinking about keeping it. If you have any better ideas for a title, post a comment with the title on it and I'll consider it)
So you all know what I'm talking about, it is about this country young country girl that is about 12 or 13 who goes to a mountain that, indian legend says, holds many secrets. When she gets to the top (which is a great crater), she becomes part of a great ceremony of wolves and gains the powers of talking to animals, shifting to other animals, and even possibly another power that people rarely ever have. She has been given these powers by the ultimate leader of the wolves and the spirits of other ones that had powes like her in the past (more on those spirits later). This has been done every generation or so and they call the people who are chose The Animal Warrior. If this doesn't change her life, the bombing of her iaunt and uncle's ranch and her aunt and uncle with hundreds of people still inside will. Now she must kill a person of great immortality who killed her family. But before that, she must find a great sword, a symbol of her and other Animal Warriors before her.
So, back to the spirits of the people with the powers in the past. There is a lardge secret group of people called the Ostendo, who also have powers. Some people's powers are a little like hers, but none are as unique They are all in seperate groups but they gather once a month to talk and the follow the guideline of the Ostendo Souls, these are people who have powers and were with the Ostendo. They give the other Ostendo guidance of what to do. My short story will be about the Ostendo Souls and how they and the Ostendo came to be.
I am also going to say this in my short story but please note that the Ostendo Souls are NOT real deities. Nor are they deities of any kind. They are people who give guidance to other people like them, like I said above. They can give people godlike powers and they can give prophecies that tell of the future. But they are not gods themselves. Merely souls that help other people. Many of the Ostendo will believe in one religion and have the Ostendo souls as a bonus part of their religion. In fact, in my short story, there will be many parts where you will see deities of most of the religions come together. Please do not sew me or anything for putting this or my next short story up, I am just trying to find a way to put all the religions together. I am not going to try to convert anyone either. All I am doing is trying to tell my story that I have been thinking about for years, and this is how I am going to tell it. Thank you and again, happy Valentine's Day to you all.
