My name, my real name, is Yves Hacault. I have been writing short stories and half-assed attempts at novels for ten years now, and I am finally getting my self whipped in shape and putting in a serious attempt at writing a dark fantasy. It is going to be an attempt of mine to push the boundaries of the fantasy genre and make readers empathize with truly evil character. There is no good and evil in this book, there is only a lesser evil. I want the readers to see that, and read it because they want there to be hope, that even though they see there is no hope, that they want there to be hope, and continue to read looking for the hope of good succeeding, and never finding it. I will make it so that all the "Good" does, is delay the inevitable destruction of humanity. Eventually, i will allow them to succeed, but since they have been fighting this battle for so long, they don't know any other way to live, and become what they have just destroyed, only slightly better. I want to introduce characters, have them become what they are fighting, and then have them die, suddenly and brutally. I want the idealists to dedicate themselves to the cause of overthrowing the evil, and being corrupted by it, yet never stopping the fight. I want the pure and good characters to slowly succumb to murder, stealing and rape. Anyway, that's enough of that for now.
