Murder Most Foul!

August 21, 2008  Author: Anthony Pacheco Category: Plot, The Craft   3 Comments

Last night one of my pretend people in Bunny Trouble solved a crime. And now, he is righteously pissed. As an upright and moral man, he wants to bring the bastard to justice and watch him squirm in court. As the warrior champion against evil, however, he wants to hunt the murderer down and rip out his heart.

It’s a moral quandary. Terrance lives in a sick society where the wicked go unpunished and there is no justice, only the illusion of justice (much like the difference between being safe and feeling safe). He has decided to take matters into his own hands, but I think he might get talked out of it. Convinced, if you will, to use The System to his own ends.

It was a great bit of writing, and I will take unholy delight in turning this cliché inside out after running it through a blender. For in my world, the victim has the final say. The world belongs to the living, but the dead sometimes have their revenge.

All this over a nice big glass of Little Bear Creek from Woodinville Wine Cellars. Damn I love being me.

    Ahh, between this and reading your Bunny Trouble excerpt, I’m hooked.

    Might I suggest Terrance become acquainted with Bridge on the Drina? Nothing like fine literature to inspire one’s desires and give them focus.

    Oh yeah, added you to the RNS blogroll. Hadn’t read your blog until just now — and as I said, I’m hooked. Looking forward to reading more both here and in print!

    Thanks David for your kind comments! It’s a new blog that I have been slowly working on day-by-day.

    I read RNS everyday! Between you, Phil and Joe, it’s a great look both local and national issues, particularly pointing out the absurdity of our elected officials both local and regional.

    They don’t do too well in Bunny Trouble II, heuh heuh heuh.
