The Guard HQ

The Guard-Young Adult Superhero Fiction

Right now a relative of mine is doing the read through of the seventh story. Its been slow because he’s been busy with new job, different hours, and life in general. But I hope in a couple weeks he’ll be finished and I can implement the handful of changes.

Story 8 needs a third draft, 9-11 need first drafts, and I’m working on 12. Which is massive in scope. It will be split into 4 sections. I’m on the fourth section right now.

Next week more story spotlights.

In a few weeks I’ll start the seventh story.

The Case Files: Old Monsters

The second guard story is entitled Old Monsters. Here’s the write up.

The teenage heroes of the Guard are working to get their operation up and running. They continue to look into Teiwaz activities as well as creating files on potential dangers, setting up an off site Intelligence Hub and planning renovations to their secret headquarters. All this while getting to know one another better. Soon a museum robbery brings new trouble the teams way. An ancient evil whose been awakened and set upon the world to create terror and chaos. Its up to the Guard to face down the monster and then the puppeteer behind the scenes. A being of incredible power and unknown motives.

The second story opens with the team really coming together. You see them knocking out more Teiwaz goons as well as hanging out and adjusting to their new lives as a team of superheroes. As the write up explains, the villain of the piece is really a smoke screen for a major threat in an extended cameo. One that adds to the worlds mythology and the background to a couple of my superheroes. I took ca change of pace from evil empires to villains of power so that I could write up a classic superhero team versus big bad villain story. The story also fully introduces Kate Stokes, partner to Kid Victory who is the head of their Intelligence Hub. Also meets Reina’s best friend costume designer for teen superheroes Michelle ‘Michie’ Gibson.

My favorite part of the story is the chapter in the teams game room. Just the team hanging out. I love it. While I dug the big fight scene I dug the revelation of the villain behind the scenes much more. Said villain does a good job of establishing themselves as final boss level badassery.

Story is only 18 chapters, clocking in at around 125 pages.

The Case Files: The Rise of the Guard

The first of the Guard stories is entitled Rise of the Guard. Here’s the write up.

Its been three years since the dawn of the superhuman age. When a runaway known only as Araminta finds herself the target of mysterious men she is rescued by the worlds first superhero Reina Titán. Araminta is then introduced to a group of teenage heroes who have banded together to take down the terrorist organization known as the Teiwaz. An evil society that has infiltrated the United States government and is kidnapping and experimenting on teenagers to build into a future superhuman army. Only this young group of heroes have what it takes to stop them.

The first story features the the above mentioned Reina and Araminta as well as Reina’s crime fighting partner (and adoptive sister) Red Sprite, the vigilante Kid Victory, SubHuman, Mr. Monster and Huntsman. The story also introduces a pair of important supporting characters. The story threat, the Teiwaz, are a major threat throughout the series as they also appear in the last story and will make more appearances in the future. DAMN THOSE EVIL SUPER-VILLAIN ORGANIZATIONS BENT ON WORLD DOMINATION!

My favorite parts of the series is Araminta’s introduction to the team as well as the final acts big collision between the heroes in the villains. Especially the parts with Red Sprite.

The story runs 22 chapters, altogether just over 150 pages. Its a quick read.

7th story needs tweaking before going up in a few weeks.
