Magic #142

by

"Wot the bleedin' hell's teef was that!" Screeched Skaran, as the group picked themselves up from the ground.

"That, rat." Said Amethyst. "Was a dragon slaying automaton. They are skin wearers.

"Skin wearers?" An edge of terror skirted Barnabas's voice. "Really?"

"Yes, fox. The flesh of a person stitched over the cold skeleton of iron cogs and springs. Intricate in their monstrousness. They are magical constructs of incredible ingenuity and require knowledge, that I thought was out of reach for a good thousand years."

"That was quite the light show." Tellerick brushed himself down. "A lot of magic used there."

    I wish there was a way you could turn this into an animated film. It would be killer.

    Thanks Christopher! I have been trying really hard to write stuff that feels like you're watching TV or a movie. Trying to do that without getting bogged down in detail is hard! Not as hard as writing horror though. That is 'ing difficult! 😊

    This definitely feels like it should be a movie. I thought that from the beginning.

    I have spoken with my good friend and he said "All you need to do is write a script and a good treatment." I have NO idea where to start with that!!! 😊 Although the script will mainly come out of the drabbles. I shall have to dig out my book on script-writing by J. Michael Straczynski.

    I've always heard about treatments and knew it was a brief synopsis of the story but didn't know exactly how it was done. I found a template online so now I do know how (not that it'll do me any good, but at least I know).
