So I’ve seen a lot of dystopian stories with “Everyone in the world except a few off the grid people get technology permanently embedded in them and then the world goes to hell” and like that’s cool and all, but there’s no way everyone would do that. Amish people wouldn’t. People in the orthodox Jewish community wouldn’t cause you can’t use tech on shabbos. I bet most Buddhist monks wouldn’t. Pretty much every religion has a group that can’t have 24/7 use of technology for one reason or another.
What I’m saying is dystopian worlds need much fewer motorcycle gangs and much more roaming bands of monks fighting zombies.
A lot of people are still asking about when the Fisheye Placebo comics will be updated. As I’ve mentioned many times before, I hurt my hand years back and had to slow down on drawing. Drawing comics takes many hours to create each panel and all that together to make each chapters literally broke my body.
As a solution, I’ve been working with a team of 3D artists to build models that I can paint over to help speed up the comic making process. The downside to that is before all of the characters and backgrounds are built, I can’t post new chapters. But once they are built, the chapters will come out much faster than before :) Please be patient and understanding of the challenges we’re facing, and thank you for all the support over the years.
Here’s a teaser drawing of the main antagonist from Fisheye Placebo. His identity has yet to be revealed, so stay tuned ;) Like a lot of my recent posts, this drawing incorporates a photo background to save my hands from further damage. I’m still working on the video tutorial to show everyone how this is done, and doing calculations for the Thanksgiving Charity sale. More updates to come!
A/N: Hello everyone! This is the beginning of my new series and I hope y’all would enjoy it! Just some side notes, my OC is heavily inspired by Evangeline Samos of the ‘Red Queen’ series by @vaveyard , one of my most favourite authors, as well as the ‘MAMA’ MV by Exo themselves! This dystopian series has a heavy theme of feminism and gender equality, a topic which I felt needs more exposure! Enjoy, my babies, and remember to leave feedback when you’re done reading! x

Synopsis: In the
land of Exotica, thirteen kingdoms reign. Thirteen different types of bestowed
powers, thirteen different types of abilities, thirteen different types of
gifts. In this world, everybody is bestowed with only one ability. So what
happens when The Chosen One is discovered to possess all thirteen powers at
‘Survival isn’t a race. It’s a dance’.
I, Princess Kwon Syona, was born with the bestowed gift of
being able to manipulate metal. It’s a deadly power and I wasn’t always a
master at it; in fact, I’d always struggled to accept it when I was younger,
unable to comprehend the fact that such an unassuming young girl like me was
gifted with such power.
Over the years, I’d observed with wide-eyed awe as metal
pieces bent to my every will, creaking and groaning with a mere flick of my
wrist. Steel knives slice through air whenever I command them to, aluminium
foils twisting and turning into dangerous daggers and harmless silver jewellery
morphing into weapons of my choice.
So I just read Fahrenheit 451, and Slaughterhouse-Five and I was wondering if you had any book reccomendations with a similar tone/idea?
I’ve only read Fahrenheit 451 out of those two, so it’s probably best if I ask for a lifeline from my followers. Top of mind suggestions: Brave New World, The Handmaid’s Tale (I didn’t like it, but most people do), and Player Piano. I also read about a book that sounds fascinating, and it has been mostly forgotten: Looking Backward. Check the descriptions of those books.

As their story unfolds in personal posts and private chat logs, more and more about becomes revealed about both NV and their small circle of friends, slowly peeling away at something sinister.
WARNING: Due to the interactive and “real time” nature of EnviNet, sometimes posts will be edited, retracted, deleted, or otherwise modified by NV or outside factors. This is a part of the plot/story.

Original versions of edited posts will eventually become available as a part of the story at an undisclosed point in time. Keep an eye out though, you may have to work to find them…
