Casting call for a twitter project based on Hellblazer/DCU

Recommended Posts

Okay,so I had this idea for a project I am working on,it's a roleplay twitter-novel thing.

 

Here's the idea.

 

 

I wanted to do a twitter novel based on the Hellblazer-verse called 'Spectral',it's an elseworld's tale.The idea is that after the death of several members of young justice and teen titans and other superheros,the UN had to reign them all in.So now ,the JLA and all related groups are peace keeping officers tied directly to the government who can ONLY take cases related to metahumans.

 

The exceptions to this rule are the Arrow family and Bat Family.Certain people are being reveiwed and /or considered in the future to do this but not everyone.

 

Anyway,so the premise is that dead superheroes are coming back in the form of 'phantoms' and fighting crime; only with a supernatural twist; those who commit crimes are punished by way of either a jinx,a curse or just outright demon sigils on them,and others dragged straight to hell.Victims have turned up with protection symbols carved into their flesh or vanish because they have been sent to heaven or the after life.

 

The main premise is that Rose Constantine (now a teenager) is one of the 'Spectral',people who have died a hero and come back with the ability to 'punish the wicked' (and yes they ARE connected to the Spectre).

 

I need some folks to help me out and role play some characters

I have started blogs for John Constantine,Rose Constantine,Nick Necro (AU version.This guy is Nicolas Edward Sloan,Not Nicolas Edward Nolan.As I said,I like the idea of Nick but esecution was piss poor).Finally Elseworld Legends is blog for fanfiction/fanart that's DC related.Will be posting links soon.I already mostly did Rose's page.Had to do Rose's first because Rose and John's stuff feed off each other.

 

The main story line is called 'Spectral',but looking in John and Rose's notes act as summaries and present side info not previously found (Contrast with certain events in 'Spectral' NOT mentioned in their blogs.Case in point you wouldn't know that Nick Necro was using an alias at first unless you read their blogs or Rose's relation to Zatanna).And reading Nick's side will reveal a helluva lot of inside info (because in this AU,Nick is essentially a spy ,an empath and actively divines the future[last one is cannon.he DOES do this] )you wouldn't know otherwise.I'd like to do one for Zatanna also,but I dunno her character well enough to do that. Also,if someone would like to picl up blogs for other related characters (I will have a list of them) then go ahead.

yes for the most part.i started up some of the blogs (in my signature).the way it works is this,the main story line features,heroes coming back from the dead to deal justice by supernatural means,becoming 'spectral shades'.villains and disgraced heroes are coming back as 'nightmare shades'..idealiy,the starting point is rose's journal.hers and john's run side by side,while nick's has a bit more back story and info that only he would know. finally,the main story line runs as 'Spectral',which is currently on a blog redirected from john's journal.I'm doing it where the parts are ordered by links to make it more immersive .

 

the idea was to make a vertigo style/hellblazer story that successfully crosses into DCU without losing the dark horror element ,u know,making ghosts demons and tights work in tandem (succeeding where dc has failed)you're welcome to check it out if you like/ private message me and let me know your opinion.

 

It's kinda branching out too,as more Spectrals get introduced,they get their story,likely posted on elseworlds legends blog.

Is John bisexual in this story? (jking)

 

yes he is bi and it shows with his indiscriminate thoughts on people of either sex.Nothing explicit though...there's another blog for that :)decided I would put sex scenes in a side link so people have the option to skip ,that way if you're gay,you have the option to NOT read about John pounding zatanna or [insert random chick] into the mattress or if you're het you have the option to NOT read about John getting it on in a motorcycle by Nick or [insert random guy]...or vice versa.

 

it's only fair.

 

the focus is his relationship with his daughter ...and solving the case of dead capes back from the grave ,so sex is hardly on his mind

would stay away from it too, i think writing good sex scenes in literature are rather hard to pull off. at least from my experience as a reader 90% of authors either write it really cold, like an instruction manual, or go akwardly overboard with weird synonyms for the more prominent body parts and or use very weird verbs.

 

as a hetero man, i would not stay away from something because it has some man on man action. i mean what could possibly happen? that i got a hard on from it... well then i would have learned something new about me :laugh:

yes,exactly.i am writing mostly male pov ,so i suspect some things sex wise,i could be getting wrong...rather not let that be a turn off or distraction so that gets side linked. as for not shying away from potential male on male content,i applaud your open-minded view.there are people who will run for the hills...but y'know, Constantine gets down like that so it's gonna have to be there somewhere,even if it's minor
