(Originally posted on my writing blog.) I’ve had an awful lot of fun lately taking concepts I started a long, long time ago and revamping them. It’s shown me how much I’ve grown as a writer, and how much experience I’ve accumulated. This story started as something very different. It started a long time ago. But in reviewing the concept, I considered a few things: 1) I liked the idea of a gaslight horror mystery, and the Victorian era became an easy ground to sow these seeds, and 2) I’d grown up on the Universal Monsters, so I included more characters to better match the traditional monster lineup. This became a love letter to things I adored, from monster mashes, to goofy ahistorical histories, to the only classical literature I enjoyed, to the things I longed to see more of in fiction. This is the story I’ve dedicated my time to finishing and will begin editing soon, so I thought I’d give a little sneak preview.

currently what Beach City looks like, I made some terrain for it to sit on. I deleted the bsp models and remade the shop buildings along the boardwalk in 3DS max. still a few bsp models for some of the background houses and stuff, but since we havent really gotten a good look of them in the show I wont be able to put ones with more detail till we do.

you can just kinda put whoever’s work you want into the writing section???
