#BadIntentions Story Commentary Chapters One through Five!

Most of you probably know that I’m hard at work making the sequel to Bad Grades happen. Bad Intentions is barely five chapters in and it’s already shaping up to be one of my favorite stories I’ve written this year.

In the wake of Claire and Daniel’s story, Jung In is off to Syracuse New York to investigate Paragon Genetic Solutions and potentially free the psychics he met during his ten-year captivity. Disguising himself as Henri Kang, med student from Korea, he goes undercover as a Neurology student and enters a residency program at a hospital co-owned by Dr. Edward Chang himself. It’s at this hospital that he meets Neurologist Alice Morgan, a beautiful, curvy, doctor with more confidence and attitude than the law should allow.

With her backstory still being developed at this point only two things are clear; she’s more than likely an incredibly powerful psychic, and she absolutely cannot stand Jung In. Having been hurt before she’s pretty mean on purpose, both due to the fact that she doesn’t want to do the residency and she wants to keep her heart protected just in case she starts to fall in love, but the genius Jung In has already recognized that and is using it against her. He knows that, the more he catches her off guard with his flirting, the closer he can get to her. Now, he’s extremely attracted to her and has already confessed that to himself AND to Daniel, but he also knows that getting close to her could mean finding the information he needs to free those psychics. Which is still his goal, despite having a perpetual hardon for Dr. Morgan.

It’s interesting watching this story and its characters develop, especially the budding romance between the emotionally stunted Jung In and the emotionally reclusive Alice. She has her fair share of past trauma, but it’s nothing compared to the torture he faced while living as Chang’s personal psychic slave. The more I listen to them banter, the more I feel like I’m watching an old school Tekken or Mortal Kombat match. Either fight or kiss each other already!

And of course I didn’t have this problem with Daniel and Claire because it was clear from the jump that Daniel would stop at NOTHING to have Claire by his side. He knew he was in love with her before I did! And I created them!

If you haven’t read Bad Grades yet, I implore you to do so. You really won’t want to miss all the action and romance that led up to Jung In being freed and him finally getting his own chance at happiness. I’m so stoked that I chose him to be the focal point of Bad Intentions. I mean, Daniel can’t have all the fun, can he?

Genesis Character Introductions: Meet Axel Mariselle

Genesis: Meet the First General who needs no introduction.

Axel Mariselle has dedicated his life to the service of Führer Ezra Dresden and his cause, whatever it may be. From conquering dates in High School to the vanquishing of nations–Axel has remained dutifully by his masters side. Yet, behind those eyes that smolder like simmering coals, is an undeniable madness. He’s quite insane, quite literally off his rocker, but he’d sooner take his own life than not be the man that hand delivers to his lord everything he’s ever dreamed. Ezra’s Dark Knight, he is an assassin, homicidal genius, master of war and best friend. And his unquenchable thirst for destruction is leading him down the irrefutable path of his own demise.

They get very excited about new ideas and projects, but may neglect the more routine aspects of life. Generally outspoken and assertive. They enjoy people and are stimulating company. Excellent ability to understand concepts and apply logic to find solutions.

Hero Archetype(s): 

  • The SWASHBUCKLER: Mr. Excitement, he’s an adventure. This guy is action, action, and more action. He’s physical and daring. Fearless, he’s a daredevil, or an explorer. He needs thrills and chills to keep him happy.
  • The BAD BOY: dangerous to know, he walks on the wild side. This is the rebel, or the boy from the wrong side of the tracks. He’s bitter and volatile, a crushed idealist, but he’s also charismatic and street smart.

Best strength: Executing complicated plans, following orders, taking care of tough decision making, reliable. He has a strict preference for duty and policy over ethics and will always see things done, even if they aren’t the right thing.

Worst flaws: 

  • Berserker – The Berserker is a character who throws himself into a fight with such reckless abandon, it seems like he WANTS to die. It could be over-enthusiasm, overconfidence,Unstoppable Rage, or the desire to die in battle. Whatever the cause, it’s usually accompanied by a bellowing warcry Sometimes with total obliviousness to whether he’s actually fighting the enemy. And he never, ever retreats.
  • Deadpan SnarkerProne to sarcastic and cynical remarks.
  • Entitled to Have You – Believes that he is entitled to the affections of his love interest simply for existing.

Internal conflict: None. He’s the most mentally fucked up yet harmonious character I’ve ever met.

External conflict: Kaizer, Mischa, Ezra–Basically everyone who apposes his way of thinking.

Biggest fear: Dying in battle as his father did. Though this fear isn’t nearly enough to keep him off the battlefield, it just makes him work harder.
