In this first intentional episode of Stray Thoughts, I ponder how Sione Ga, the Shiner; a Divine warrior could work in a Universe alongside other super humans: good and bad. How does power come from the Divine? How do they interact with the world?
I was struck by a funny thing in the Gospels. The way demon-possessed people encounter Messiah as he travels almost feels like a random encounter from a game and I wondered if I could imitate that for getting the Shiner involved in his adventures.
I stopped writing for about one week, as I was getting near the end of Sione's account of becoming the Shiner for the first time. I think it is fitting to end the break by finishing his story.
What was that about Genius being 99% perspiration and only 1% inspiration? I am trying to work hard on it. Diligence is hard, but I'm committed to this work.
I have been having a hard time with posing Sione in my storyboards, so I decided to work on sketching out poses.
The Shiner from Superheroes Get Hungry, Too; Sione Ga finds the source of the song that called him to the sea.
