Experiment #12

Dear Mr. Bradford,
I'm currently seeking representation from my New Adult Novel, Techno Wizard: The Ups and Downs of a Technology Superhero. Given your interest in science fiction, I thought it might be a good fit for your list.

When John Packing was 20 he was sent to Iraq during the Iraq war of 2003 as a soldier. During one of his combat operations he was electrocuted by electric wire dipped in plasma. Instead of dying though he has been given the superpower of controlling electric appliances with his hands and mind.

It's the year 2003 and he was sent back home as an injured vet with the military not knowing that his powers came once he got home. At first John was suspicious when he turned on the television and without touching the remote the channel changed depending on what his mind thought of at the time. Once he recognized this power he immediately went to the Doctor for assistance. Once the Doctor figured out his powers he said it was best for him to control these powers…

A Day Without Gravity: Oral Story

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to not have gravity for a day? I am Nicholas Mocalis and this is Surreal News. Good Evening my name is Nicholas Mocalis an here are the top stories from yesterday. There were these two scientists named Bill Donald and Joe Barnes who were working on a lazer on how to create floating cars in order to reduce car crashes. "This is going to revolutionize how we move around" said Bill. "I cannot think of anything going wrong here" says Joe. After Joe said that the lazer that would have made cars float malfunctioned and exploded. This caused the lazer to create a large beam of radiation causing the whole world to lose its gravity. "What a predicament but I do not see any problems that are going to happen right now" said Bill with a confident smile. In other news a decrease in gravity caused sports fans to lose interest in some sports like football because tackling became less impact b…

Experiment #9

Max the mouse said "Come on Randy before the cat comes" when searching for some food from the fridge. A rat then appeared dressed in rags ran towards the mouse and shouted "I'm Coming!" The cat then noticed the rat going to the fridge, ran towards the rat and picked up Randy. Max then picked up a needle by the kitchen counter and threw it at the cat's eye. "Go to hell you murderous fiend" Max said as the cat wallowed in pain. After the cat ran away, the mice and rat gathered whatever food they can. Randy then thanked Max for saving him as they dined on cheese, wine and grapes. "What do you plan to do if the cat comes back?" asks Randy after taking a bite from the cheddar cheese. "Maybe kill him" says Max while drunk from wine. "But why?" responded Randy. "Because he will kill us and our relatives just for taking care of ourselves." Max answered firmly. "Can we convince him to go away?" asked Randy …

Medieval Time Travel 1400's: A Life's Journey

This video game would take you back in time to the medieval period of the 1400's where you can change the future after the game ends as an open world medieval time travel game. You can explore this medieval period, share your perspectives to the locals, learn the language, study the culture, learn how to function in society and you can gain influence through either your loyalty to the society or a revolutionary who can challenge the status quo. The trope that reflects that happening is the Stable Time Loop trope. Also that character cannot return which is the Trapped in the Past trope. If you make bad decisions in the game that affect the history it can create a Karmic Twist Ending where the ending turns out bad. Another result that happens when playing is creating Alternate Timeline trope which can help change history for better or for the worse. When in the medieval period expect the Christianity is Catholic trope where most …

Critique #1

Nicholas Mocalis Professor Bradford 2-22-18 ENGL M10A                                                                      Critique #1 1.Michaela, Write to Me Essay: The first critique I found with your essay is that the beginning paragraph does not really establish the central theme of the story which is the war Damien has faced and Samantha reading a journal that wrote to him from a year ago. Instead it just explains more about where the journal is. It probably would be better to establish and describe some context to the story so the audience would understand what Samantha experienced first and then establish where the journal is. In between each letter you write to Damien try to have a paragraph describing what Samantha is doing or feeling when experiencing these events when she writes to Damien. The story themes are based on war movies where the love interest writes letters to someone who is off at war like Cold Mountain but the key differences are that she is reading her journa…
