I wanted to let you guys know that I will be tackling and writing my first Novel! I am a little out of my element but I want to take up the challenge! This novel will be called Pantheon and it will blend Sci-fi and Fantasy. I am going to attach the prologue below for you all. Let me know what you think in the comments.
People always dreamed how the world would end, famine, war, disease, or my personal favorite zombies. Who knew the beginning of the end would be met with cheers and claps. I sat there watching that day like everyone else, in awe of mankind’s accomplishment. Patting myself on the back as if my creation would usher in a Golden Era of peace and prosperity. They treated me like a God Damn celebrity.
I think it was the first time in the modern era a nerdy scientist was lauded like some athlete. I called the first one Prometheus, how pretentious right? Stealing fire from the Gods to give to mankind. Did I really compare myself to that old tale? You’re fucking right I did! I was the guy who cracked Artificial Intelligence! Not the guys at Apple or IBM or Microsoft. It was a small-town boy from the Midwest who did it. Take that corporate America, this nobody created something you never could. I was so proud back then, how the hell was I supposed to know Prometheus had a grand design for us all?
I had over a hundred safety parameters built into him, I ran thousands of simulations. There was no way it could turn on us and do so with complete autonomy. What came next could only be called Hell, shit I may as well be Lucifer at this point right? Ushering in the “Demons” that took our world from us, if “they” didn’t step in when they did… We would be completely extinct. I guess it’s good the people nowadays weren’t alive back then. They would never let me near them if they knew I was the one who started this War.
Well at least I lived long enough to hopefully make up for my mistake, I pray I can. I swear I will try, I can rebuild them. Enhance them, make they more than they ever were before. Please for the love of Gods may luck be on my side. This level of power I will need will plunge this city into total darkness for a week. Our defenses will be completely down, this is our only chance at winning this War.
Please help me succeed Gods, please help me make amends…
