An outline of this idea:
An amusingly unstable thief, who truly doesn't care about much at all except stealing, was once pulling a heist that went sour. It went sour for one very simple reason – the guy who set it up didn't like him very much. Our beloved thief joins us, where he escapes from a distant prison and disappears for some time. Upon his return, he shows back up at the very man’s home who ruined his career. He feigns forgiveness and kindness. Working back up the scales as a thief and trying to get his old position back, our thief must deal with unsavory characters, unsavory situations, and unsavory foods. But once he returns to where he began, shall he execute his master heist, or his back-stabbing boss?
This is an older piece. Actually, it's at least a year old, if not more...you can probably tell by the writing. I feel like it's a bit less well done, but at the same time, I was fairly proud of it back then. Anywho, thought I'd share as it's been a few weeks since my last post!
Hope you enjoy, and as always...

You should work for Science fiction films!
I don't know what it is that makes me want to read more, but there is certainly something! (maybe it's the unstable and disinterested part, those always fascinate me...) Let's not think about what that says about me xD
Anyway, do you plan on writing more about this? Or was it just something you wnated to show people?
So yeah, I think we're in the same boat!!!
And well, originally I wanted to turn this into a short story arc about a year ago. Then I promptly forgot about it....and remembered like well, yesterday XD So I really don't know. I can't even remember the original direction I was taking....
I do have to apologize....I'm so scatterbrained with my writing. I rarely finish a full story. "Silent City" was one of the few, and that's not even the full thing!!! I had dreams that extened waaaaay past just three sections.
So it goes....
And as I said, I would love to read more! Even if it's a new direction ^.~
My problem with stories is, that I never have an end for them. They lack the direction that I would need to continue writing them... I hate that...
And we'll see what happens, yea? Sometimes we go somewhere we never even imagined...
Hey, well at least then, you've got a never ending tale to entertain yourself with, yea? Look at like....a potentially everlasting daydream!
Well, yes, but at some point they always kind of fade out and there is just nothing more that could happen...
And that's when my mind starts the next random scenario that goes on until it starts to fade. I actually spin those tale right before falling asleep, a litlle like a bed time story ^.~ and then, one day it's just gone and I can't even remember what it was about -.-
My bad on that.
I see what you mean though! And I'd imagine that as a writer, that'd get fairly irritating. But on the super bright side, that just means you're excellent at creating these stories and adventures, which is a gift in itself!
As for the fade...yeah. I feel your pain. I had an awesome dream last night, something about diffusing a super deadly explosive and I can't remember anything else. I recall a girl, an explosion, and mountains. And it's driving me crazy that I can't recall the rest.
Rant aside, yes, I do understand XD
If only I could bring all those ideas to paper! It is quite frustrating sometimes. Just like those great dreams that you cannot remember afterwards.
maybe I should write them down instead of just letting them play out in my mind... it would be so much easier...
Wasn't it you who wrote a story about someone with a machine that read his mind and wrote the story for him? Until it ended badly...
I know what you mean!!!! So frustrating. My best advice is always carry a piece of paper or write it down in your cellphone's notepad or something. Just a few lines to keep it in your head!
Hahahahahaha, yes! That was "Raphael's Ruin"! ^.^
The nice thing about sketching down the beginnings of a fresh story, rather than a fully formed one you've lived in your head, is that you won't get bored or lazy with it. The story develops as you write, rather than you rehashing fuzzy memories. That's why I've never finished the Silent City series or the Fairy Tale segments. I kinda...wrote them in my head, and whenever I sit down to write them, I feel like they're drab retellings of far more exciting dreams.
If that makes sense.
