"The Half Angel Returns"
The thing about characters you create is that after a while they take on lives of their own. This is true no matter if you're a pro or entry level story hacker. My beloved character "Timmy Tom" certainly did this.
He began as a children's story character, and ended up as a Queer Anarchist Comix Book Hero. Long story there, but ya gets the drift.
Anyway my little pal, and his boyfriend went through all manner of mayhem in their journey from cute kiddie story place markers to being bank robbing Queer Daddies.
Hey they knocked over Mob Casio's, and Fed gold depositories to feed the hungry. Com'on it was win-win for everybody. Our heroes Timmy, and his main squeeze June June laundered the gold with the Buddhist Mafia for cash.
Them Buddhists used the gold to build temples, and out pals used the cash to feed, and otherwise support battered wives runaway kids homeless veterans, and the generally fucked over.
Well okay except for the Mob, and their friends the U.S. Gobbermint.
Well the Saga starts anew below. Btw I have no idea where June June got to. Timmy sez the last he saw of him was in some leather bar in Shanghai. Though he thinks he'll show up sooner or later.
Okay lets get to it...
"THE CONTINUANCE OF THE TIMMY TOM SAGA"
Timmy Tom, Timmy Tom the Half Angel opened his eyes.
Eyes that burn like coals.
Eyes that flash the Spectrum's.
Eyes that can pierce your Soul!
He'd been asleep for a long time. Angels even Half Angels like Timmy can sleep for Ages. Mountains can rise, and fall oceans come, and go even the stars ever dancing above us can change their positions before an Angel awakes.
Though Timmy Tom's rest was not that long. In celestial terms just a nap really. Barely a fifth of a human life had passed before Timmy stirred, and opened his eyes.
The moon was waning dawn was coming.
Hey okay it ain't much yet. Like I say your characters come, and act in their own good time. Timmy has been away for years. Maybe as long as a decade...I think.
We'll see what happens.
