Conflict. Drama. Cliffhanger!
Those are the buzzwords that informed everything you see on this page. Let’s explore them, shall we?
The CONFLICT part is pretty self-explanatory, I think. We’ve got three sets of characters, with each duo set against each other along the human/vampire divide.
But, none of that conflict amounts to more than just cool fight choreography without the DRAMA. Each set of characters has a shared history, which informs and enriches the conflict. All their skeletons have come out of the closet. Whether it is a friend’s secret resentments or the realization that the very act you mean to avenge is the only reason you were born, it was always our intention that the mental and verbal sparring between the characters would hurt far more than any physical blow.
And finally that brings us to the CLIFFHANGER. Again, this is pretty self-explanatory, but I think it is notable that this page has THREE freaking cliffhangers! We here at Daredevils Central pride ourselves on the fact that pretty much every page ends in a cliffhanger. We feel that with the page-a-week format our readers deserve a juicy mystery, climactic moment, or some other tomfoolery to chew on between updates. Well, now you have three. You’re welcome.
With that in mind, be here NEXT WEEK to experience what could very well be the most GUT-WRENCHING cliffhanger of our entire run! In just 7 days the penultimate page of Pitch Black Day Chapter 4 drops like a BOMB. Make sure to RSS, Like, or Follow. Trust me, you do not want to miss what is coming next.
How does that old adage go? Oh right, “Always leave them wanting more.” So with that, I bid you adieu. As always, make sure to check out the Sunday Bonus Lunch – the blog equivalent of frantic cries for help scrawled onto a mental hospital’s walls.
Anyway, till next week!
P.S If the “Heir of Holmwood” and “Lady Godalming” talk threw you for a loop this week, I highly recommend you read the various and sundry prose chapters, which can easily be accessed via the Archive.
