So, I have less time for stuff than I expected, which has led to me thinking in circles on Raven’s Wrath. For those who don’t know, this is the October story series I’ve been doing for the last 3 years and will complete next year. Horror isn’t my wheelhouse, so I’m never sure what I’m doing here. Just been going along with what feels right, which is why the following has happened:
- Raven’s Hold– Supernatural, psychological thriller attempt
- Raven’s Game– Serial killer supernatural thriller attempt
- Raven’s Dawn– Cult college supernatural attempt
This leaves me with Raven’s Wrath, which has a character from the first book returning with the same reality-bending powers as Dawn Addison. I don’t think it would work to have them battling for all 13 chapters/31 sections. So, I’ve been looking at Freddy vs Jason and Godzilla movies for ideas. Nothing has happened, but I think part of it is because I’m leaning toward a strange move in this series. It brings me closer to my comfort zone, so I figured I’ll pose it here and see what people think:
The idea is that Dawn is split in her first encounter with Ian. You have insane Dawn on the rampage and sane Dawn, who is the one that the story follows. She’s heading for a rumored haven in the hopes of getting away from her other self and Ian, so she travels with people. The battling reality warpers have twisted the world, so it would be a journey through deadly terrains. Unlike the previous stories, it won’t take place in one location and the killing scenes might be mass attacks or something else. Probably some bizarre meetings with distorted denizens. It’s very different from the previous stories, which makes me wonder if it works.
So, what do people think? Does it make sense to end this horror series with an adventure type story?
