To all those who old-school content producers who squawk about the internet upsetting your way of doing things: it’s your own fault.
Well, let’s be fair. Not all of it can be attributed to the old guard. Certainly before now there were practical hurdles to be overcome. The cost of printing, burning DVD’s, packaging, distribution … those were real, tangible hurdles. You had to have money to get your vision out there, and the people with the money were the publishers, the record labels, the studios. So their role was vital in that regard.
But there was another element involved that chafed and rankled: nepotism. Quality and value of a work took a backseat to who knew who, who did what for who, etc. (Let’s not even get into the darker stuff, like the casting couch.) It wasn’t about being the best, or the most worthy. It was about finding the right gatekeeper to bribe.
themattress asked: Linkara, I love you man, but I'm sorry, I have to question this "King of Worms" story you have going. Didn't you say you wouldn't look to repeat or top the Entity arc? Because at the moment, this is really coming across as a rehash of that story, even down to the vague creepy poetry! Also, I thought dealing with an "outer god" would be a one-time thing, but now there's a whole family of them? Are you sure you're not going over your head a little here?
Trying my best not to rehash it. It might go into similar places, but the resolution will be different, the nature of the threat is different, and the goals are different. The storyline’s development will be focused in a different area. And I won’t be trying to top the Entity storyline, just tell a good story.
