This time I want to take a role of the writer. I already have a plot in mind and even wrote a script for the first chapter (issue). But I need a help of artist, who:
Script (slightly NSFW, but I sincerely tried to keep it in boundaries)
A long time ago in a dark post apocalyptic forest far, far away, lived a young girl with a big sad eyes. Her parents dies long ago, and girl stayed to live together with old, ugly, and - of course! - evil stepmother in a little old shake. They hunted small mutants, collected variety of edible things and small artifacts in the forest. Sometimes they exchanged all these things with strangers, who have passed by nearby road, for other sorts of food and useful items. Stepmother made girl work a lot doing all of that, and if the girl did anything wrong, evil woman screamed at her, beat her cruelly etc.
Thus, girl's life was miserable and sad. The only thing which kept her afloat, were old romantic stories from ancient e-book - the last present of her dead father. She read these stories and dreamed about kind and lovely prince, who will come for her, take her to a better place and make her a princess. Her favorite story was the one about Scarlet Sails.
One day, a girl noticed a new, unusual stranger on the road. There was something definitely standing out in him. Was it the strength and confidence in his steps? His cool ammunition? Or, maybe, his unusually pale eyes and hair?.. Girl didn't know for sure, but she understood immediately, that he is different from all other strangers, she have ever seen.
Girl blushed, and her heart started to beat faster! She came to a man and greeted him politely. Then she said:
- You look tired, mister, and the night is coming. Do you need a place to rest or a food to eat, by the chance? We also can suggest you some goods...
- Who are "we"? - asked a man.
- Me and my stepmother. - Answered a girl. - We are living near this road in the shake. It's old, yet it's fortified well enough to be safe from night monsters. I can show you.
- Ok, let's give it a try, - told man, and these words cheered up the girl. "He is so nice!" - thought she - "I'm so glad he decided to come with me. Maybe he likes me, too?" - and her cheeks blushed a bit more.
When a girl lead a man to the shake and introduced him to her stepmother, old woman became way too interested in things he carried with him. Especially in his unusual cold weapon, seemingly made from high quality flexible pre-Catastrophe nano-materials. She asked him to sell it to her as convincing as she could and suggested to exchange it on many other good things, but the man refused firmly. "I can give you some ammo for any common firearm in exchange for a food and a place to stay for a night, but I will never sell this thing" - told man. But old woman wanted a cool weapon so much! It could be such a great help to cut branches, fight and carve mutants, and maybe even crush thick shells of feral robots! So she didn't want to give up so easily.
Old woman smiled widely, called for a girl, took her clothes off and asked a man: "Do you like my stepchild? You can make everything you want with her in exchange for that blade. Just pls don't kill her, I still need a helpful hand in my household". Girl started to cry, but man started to laugh. "You are out of your mind, crone!" - told he, when his laugh finally ceased. - "This poor mutant girl with abnormally giant eyes (reference to shojo art style) looks like a victim of a death camp! She is as thin as skeleton, and her body is covered with horrible wounds and scars. Not saying that she is not even adult... Who would even want her? Who in his own mind would exchange rare high-tech weapon for your pile of crap and for this poor half-dead thing?"
Man sighed, shook his head, threw a couple of ammo pieces to the table as a payment for food and bed, went away into the bedroom for guests and closed a door.
"Maybe he was a little bit harsh, but in essence, he just didn't want to hurt me and felt sorry for my wounds." - thought girl. - "Probably, deep inside, he is really noble and kindhearted man..."
But her stepmother was furious! She started to beat girl cruelly, screaming at her: "It's all your fault! Look at yourself, it's all because you are ugly and useless mutant!!!".
After several minutes of these screams, a man knocked from the other side of the door of the bedroom and told loudly with irritation: "Stop being loud. I'm trying to sleep".
"Kind mister is protecting me!" - thought girl warmly, while her stepmother finally calmed down and started to think.
Finally, the face of evil woman enlightened with a new, even more cruel expression, because her unsatisfied greed went to extreme... She decided to kill a stranger sneaky in his sleep and then just take all his lovely items, including the blade, from his dead body! So, she smiled widely, took a brutal scary minigun from the chest, silently opened the door into the room where he slept and started to raise a minigun up, pointing it toward the bed...
At this very moment, a girl understood, what she wanted to do and screamed "Noooooo!!!..."
And also at this very moment, a man abruptly jumped out of the bed with a speed, unreachable for usual human, pushed minigun away and pierced evil woman with his blade right into her evil heart!
- Didn't you want this blade, old bitch? - asked he, laughing mockingly. - Now it's all yours.
But old bitch didn't answer anything. She just felt on the floor silently, and a puddle of blood started to spread out from her dead body.
In the meantime, a girl looked at all of this with rounded eyes, which became even bigger from her immense surprise. Then, when she finally realized, what had just happened, her face enlightened with joy. She started to laugh together with the man happily, which abruptly made him stop laughing on his turn. He froze in the middle of the room, staying still, as statue, still holding his weapon, covered with blood, in his hand. Pupils of his cybernetic eyes turned into thin vertical lines, and he looked at the girl fiercely, sadly, and with perplexity in the same time.
But happy girl didn't mind. She rushed to perplexed man and started to hug him kindly with excited screams: "Thank you, kind sir, for setting me free from my evil stepmother and putting the end to her evil deeds! Now I understand everything. YOU ARE MY PRINCE!!!".
The end of the first chapter.
So... does anyone want to help me to create the most horribl... beautiful love story ever, and, who knows... maybe even knock some sense into the heads of naive romantic teenage girlies?..
