Cape High book release!

So here is the second side story book of the series, this time focused on the side character villains. Truthfully, an alternative title for this one would be “Skye and Friends” but it just didn’t strike the right chord>D It kept getting longer and longer as I went OTL, and it’s got a bit of everything (and a huge chunk of Skye and the girls.)

I hope you enjoy it!

Cape High Book 18 Release!

So! Here it is! We finally have Sandra’s story<3 And since tomorrow is my birthday, here’s my b-day present to all of you! Now, I will go let my brain relax, and probably figure out what type of cake I want^_~

Hope you like it!

Cape High Update 5-9-19

News and Update!
First of all, I saw this, and looked up a report on it, so I thought I’d share since I’m sure I have parents following here:
 
PARENTS WARNING !!!
Any parents or anyone that knows of any kids playing an online game called Blue Whale, PLEASE get your kids off of this game. It sets 50 challenges for them to accomplish and the last one is to commit suicide.
(copy and paste. Get the word out)
What has this world come to? This is so incredibly disturbing and sick!
 
If you’re following this series, you’ve probably figured out how strongly I feel about this sort of thing-_- Please look into it, yourself, and pass it on!
 
Now, for what I’m sure you’ve all been waiting for, an update! I have the rough draft of Sandra’s book finished, and I’m starting on revisions, now. I have a few little scenes that need added to write, and to send it to my betas.
 
I have to tell you that Phoebe’s part in this book has been cut out. I’m reworking it into a short story, actually, and I plan on compiling a few other stories about baddies with it into a side story book. I plan on adding Skye’s first story (the one that was in PCS’s first anthology), Panther’s generic hero duty, and possibly writing a couple of other badguy based shorts to toss in. Depending on how many new shorts I throw in, it’ll probably be pretty cheap^^ Regardless, expect a lot of Skye and her girls<3 (And maybe, possibly, a Cubby story? That’d be fun!) We’ll see! Thank you all for your patience!

Cape High Book 17 release!

So, here it is! Along with a tiny explanation. I was going to write a girl book (Sandra) but as I went on with the story, I realized it wasn’t how I wanted to develop her. Then there was this story that kept trying to sneak in on me. I switched over, and it accomplished what Sandra’s book WASN’T getting done–it developed her in the direction I wanted her to go. So you get a guy’s book, first.

May I present you with Lance’s story, Coyote’s Howl. Enjoy!

Advent Calendar 2016: Day Twenty-Four

Merry Christmas Eve, to those of you that celebrate it! I hope you all enjoy your celebrations<3 Today is, surprisingly enough, also the first day of Hanukkah! So to those of you that celebrate that, Happy Hanukkah! I wish you all love, joy, and peace!

Now, for the final Advent Calendar entry, our one and only brother of Santa, Century! (I’m going to take the rest of the year off<3)

NAME: Charles Benton
ALIAS: Century
AGE: 100+
ABILITIES: Time control (capacity to stop time for a large city for over an hour, at least), super speed, strength, flight, (let’s face it, this guy is SERIOUSLY dangerous.)
FAMILY: Kris Benton AKA Santa Clause
OCCUPATION: Leader of the South Branch Hall

HOBBIES:  running an oil company (he enjoys being an oil baron–but don’t worry, he’s dragged Nico into the work and made the processing EXTREMELY eco-friendly)
LIKES: Skye, his Hall, unique and interesting capes, looking good
DISLIKES: his brother, people not knowing their place in the game (Herold), snow

BIO: The son of Santa. Yeah, Century is from the very long, very venerable, and MASSIVELY powerful Santa line. His older brother took on the mantle when his dad was going to retire almost seventy years ago. There was a trial–they were each assigned half of the planet to deliver to (only those that believed in Santa, of course), and whoever finished first would become the next Santa. Century lost. There has been a lot of speculation over the years as to whether he even really tried to win. Century HATES snow. Years of living in the middle of a “winter wonderland” had him dreaming of sun and grass and anything warm. The first thing he did after losing the competition was to move south.

He met and married a wonderful norm woman not long after moving there. They were married for a very long time–until she passed away from old age. He’s still single, now. During the time, though, he started up the South Branch Hall (with assistance from the previous Falconess). He also started up his oil company, and brought Voltdrain up from where he was living in Mexico (which led to the South Branch being the protectors of Mexico, as well). When he lost his wife, he was heartbroken, and it’s taken a pretty long time for him to recover (although, honestly, he never will, completely). He’s still not completely sure about how he feels for Skye, especially since she’s so much younger than he is, but it hasn’t stopped him from teasing her a bit^_~

Century is a well-educated business owner, but he plays up the “good ‘ole boy” routine on a regular basis to see if people will underestimate him. He helped MAKE the new photo-op game, and even let Skye “steal” one of his credit cards. He keeps it up to date, and makes sure she can buy anything she wants or needs. He does the same in one way or another for all the other villains in his territory. He’s also extremely invested in the lives of his heroes. He and Voltdrain are good friends, and he considers Voltdrain’s daughter, Jimmi, his niece. He feels most guilty about Emily winding up in the Behts’ family–it was under his direction (he thought that she would be happy with other girls to keep her company.)

He would happily adopt Sandra if the Liberty family wasn’t interested–he’s come to the conclusion that he needs to save the “at-risk” capes, or at least make sure they don’t fall through the cracks. His Hall will definitely be taking in a large group of the Cape High graduates, if given the chance. He’s already placed a claim on Vinny, Carla, Rocco, and Lance (even if he has to share Carla and Rocco with Mastermental.)

Advent Calendar 2016: Day Twenty-Three

NAME: Kaden
ALIAS: N/A
AGE: 15/16
ABILITIES: Kinetic Energy Absorber type tank
FAMILY: N/A
OCCUPATION: Cape High student

HOBBIES: video games, comic books, exercising
LIKES: he’s pretty easy-going about everything, really.
DISLIKES: shirts… actually, clothes in general, really… but he has to at least wear pants.

BIO: Kaden’s history is pretty much a mystery for most people at the moment. They know that he’s Polynesian, originally from Hawaii, and it’s pretty obvious that he’s part of a super family, but he hasn’t said who they are. The rest of the zoo kids are just letting him decide when to tell it, himself. What they DO know is that roughly at the age of 14, Kaden was captured by Shadowman and placed in a very special cell. The walls of the cell were created to absorb any impact he might make on them. (That suggests that the Collector knew exactly what the boy would become. Sandra’s cage was the same.)

Kaden is one of the quietest of the zoo kids, as well as one of the ones that remained hidden from the world the longest. His time trapped in a cell was hard on him, and he feels guilty that he couldn’t break out. He was a tank, after all, but he was only just coming into his powers at the time. The thing that’s really drawn him out of his shell is when he was sent out into the field with Vinny and Zoe. He found himself with one person he already trusted with his life (Vinny), and another person that instantly started mothering him–and was tough enough to get away with it (Zoe). With that sort of stable atmosphere, he fell into the position he felt most comfortable with, the muscles of the group. (Although he did try to beat Zoe in an arm-wrestling competition and fail, but she was always more of the leader, regardless.)

He’s not quite as laid-back as Vinny is, but he’s a pretty close second. He’s a gentle giant, since he’s already well over 6′ at his age, and growing taller. He willingly follows whenever he can, choosing not to be a leader in any way. It isn’t that he’s stupid, it’s that he’s smart enough to know when to step back and wait for when it’s his time to do his thing. He loves music, but despite Vinny’s joking, he doesn’t know how to play the bongos. He isn’t one of those “Elvis movie boys” either. (But don’t worry, he teases Vinny about being Mafia all the time.) He DID like Lilo and Stitch, though!

He would actually be on the Liberty “list of kids to adopt” if they had a better idea of what family he has. Both Century and Marigold have already shown interest in him, and he’ll easily get a job in whatever Hall he wants. I could actually see him going to West so he could return to the islands.  (This one will probably be updated when I get around to writing his book.)

Advent Calendar 2016: Day Twenty-Two

NAME: Skye
ALIAS: Skystep
AGE: 25-26
ABILITIES: Intangibility, sky walking, S-class speed, strength, healing, and the ability to find other supers
FAMILY: Tatiana & Superior (adopted parents), Nico AKA Technico (brother, adopted), Liz AKA Firefly (sister, adopted), Rocco AKA Nightstep (“nephew” actually a cousin of sorts) Shadowman (great great uncle), Emily AKA Devine Justice (“niece”), Aubrey AKA Life Light (“niece”), Sunny, Zoe–hell, she would claim everyone, if she thought of it OTL
OCCUPATION: Super Villain of the South Branch (also quite popular in Central)

HOBBIES:  Bothering her partners, Doris and Ariel, bugging her family, being a little bit batty
LIKES: her new family, her partners, her base, her electronic skele-dino, nature
DISLIKES: earthquakes, avalanches, any chance that her loved ones might be involved in either of those

BIO: Skye is a very misunderstood super. She spent most of her life alone, and never got her highschool degree because she once tried to teach people to phase through objects and some scientists tried to experiment on her (they couldn’t catch her to try.) She moved into a run-down apartment building, only to run everyone off when they woke up to her head sticking through the floor. She kept living there (the manager was too terrified to run her off, and then Century arranged for her to stay there.) The place started falling apart, because it was old to begin with.

She was best friends with Emily’s mother, and often chased her and her husband around when they went out of town. One day, though, there was an avalanche in the mountains. Emily’s parents threw the norms they were trying to save to Skye, but never made it out, themselves. It really broke Skye’s heart. She became more and more difficult to deal with, and it went out of control when her usual “hero” left without telling her first (Flameblaster in Fire Hazard.) She beat up almost all of the South Branch and then came up to Central, where she found Emily. Unfortunately, Emily believed that she was responsible for her parents’ deaths. Once that was worked out (and after Liz almost killed her for scaring her adopted daughter), Skye claimed Emily as her niece, and Liz as her sister. It just ballooned from there, with Skye heading to the Arctic Circle and claiming Liz’s parents as her own, as well. (And since she entertained Tatiana, she was quickly adopted into the family.)

She also built herself a nice little team of all-girl villains, which Century dubbed the “Deadly Darlin’s.” She, Doris, and Ariel are now lined up to fight a super hero ladies duo, made up of Ruckus and Dollface. They’re having a blast, since Dollface shrinks everything into toyhouse sized places. Life would be perfect for Skye, except for two problems. 1) Her adopted parents are now guarding “Mother” who brainwashed her in the past, and she’s not happy about it. And 2) Century kissed her after he almost died, and now her partners are constantly teasing her about dating him. But hey, she’s the most powerful villain IN THE WORLD! (Not the sanest, or the most violent, or even the most villainous, but hey, still the most powerful!) She’ll figure out how to deal^_~
