Story Projects and Ideas

I've been wanting to post these somewhere for some time. I have so many stories I want to work on but I never have enough time, patience, or enthusiasm to work on most of them. I'm sure they all have potential to be great stories, so I guess I'll get around to them sooner or later. Tell me what you guys think.

Yin Yang
I know, it's not a very creative title. In fact, I think this one is the least creative story I have in my projects, therefore I probably won't work on it. This story I started building when I was like 13, and the only reason it stood out to me was because of the designs. The story is pretty generic. It's about a guardian angel and a devil trying to gain trust of angels assigned to a human. The main character is a guy with a very bad attitude, and throughout the story it seems the guardian angel and the devil are trying to set him straight before he gets sent to hell. It mostly had the concept of the shoulder devil and shoulder angel though. Oh god, what was wrong with me? I like the designs anyway. Especially Yang's.  

This was made a little after Yin Yang if I remember correctly. Sometime in the far future, a technological genius scientist was desperate to fuse together a human's brain and the processing of a computer in an attempt to artificially enhance the human race. He couldn't acquire human test subject, so he used his own son. He did this by putting his son to "sleep" and putting his brain, heart, and other necessary organs into an artificially made body that wouldn't be affected by the electrical data being sent through the body. It worked. "Andro" could process thoughts as quickly as a computer could and could create code and send it in an instant when hooked up to other devices. Eventually, Andro could upgrade himself and began wanting to upgrade himself into a flawless and powerful robot. He ended up killing his dad. 

A rather unique story where the main character is dead the entire time. It takes place in the afterlife. In this afterlife, you have two kinds of people; the forgiven, and the unforgiven. The forgiven souls do not feel pain. They don't wonder or question. They don't seek answers. They are not curious. They don't remember anything from their past life, and don't feel any human emotion straying from that of comfort. The forgiven tend to play together, laugh, and sing simply because they are at peace. The unforgiven have full human consciousness. They retain their full memory, their emotions, and can still feel pain. The unforgiven have tails along with other horrific features, and can read the Angel's writings as if it were english. They are usually surrounded by nothing else but forgiven, leaving them with virtually no one to talk to or relate to. They usually end up going insane. Unforgiven can be heard by others, but can not hear their own voice. 

Den and Ben
This is a more comical series about two guys living in an apartment. They both have super powers and both hate each other. Dennis has superstrength and the power to heal quickly. Benjamin has telekinesis and can shoot lasers and create forcefields. This particular project I actually want to animate. I also created them to further exercise my alternate drawing style. 

Tartarus was my first attempt at a romantic story. Somehow it ended up being about demons and hell and stuff like that. :| But anywho, Tartarus is about a girl named Ester who was born with immortality (There's backstory behind that. ), and was chased after by the demons from Tartarus (the realm below hell, where demons live) because they wanted her energy. The only two who were initially willing to help Ester out were an Eagle, and a Cambion (half-incubus-half-human). In this story, animals pose as protectors of humans from demons. These animals can still be killed by some demons, however. The bit of romance is the cambion named Anthem fell in love with Ester when they were young, because at that time he was posing as a human. 

The convenient thing about this story is that it's in the same timeline as Tartarus. It takes place about 50 years later. Due to a conflict with her Ancestral Mother, Faere, Ester is now "dead". Sort of. She's a fucked up ghost-demon who slaughters humans. Anthem is still alive, heartbroken over his loss of Ester. 70 years back, Ester's Ancestral Father who also happens to be basically Satan, was sent to Earth to bring about the end of the world. He was tricked into doing so by his mate, Faere, while she placed a binding seal on him so that she could rule Tartarus while Nefarious was captured, restrained, and locked out of Tartarus. In the present plot, two girls, Katherine and Manaka, find Nefarious and set him free. Katherine is fully aware of his powers, but she brought Manaka along because she always knew Manaka as absolutely fearless. Katherine's motive is where Ester comes into play. When Ester was turned into a demon by her ancestral mother, she sought revenge on Faere, and went out to seek someone who would set Nefarious free. It took her about 50 years to do so, but she finally found Katherine, a girl who was deep into occult and who hated the world. She used this interest to convince Katherine to set her ancestral father free and ruin her mother's plan. Nefarious was set free, but could not seem to escape the binding spell that was placed on him. He then told Manaka and Katherine that they had 3 months to go into Tartarus and find a way to take him, or break the spell. Or else, he threatened, he would proceed to go through with the end of the world. 

Kalon (Working Title)
I'm actually in the process of  thoroughly developing this one. It has tons of back story.  And I mean TONS. 
Firstly, it takes place on a planet named Kalonice, where everything works a little different from Earth, but still somewhat similar. Our main character is a man named Scott Soryan. His duty in life is to hunt lunatics (people who have gotten possessed) and Witches (people born with supernatural powers). As a part of an organization called M.A.I.A., Scott was assigned to kill a witch who had been devouring other members of his group. He cunningly brought the witch down on his first try, but only because he used his knowledge of her being a lunar witch. Knowing the witch would lose its powers when the sun came up, he held out until dawn and attacked her as she dropped to the ground. When he reached the ground to finish her off he found that she had transformed into a familiar figure. She in the daytime was the "Princess" of Kalonice Palace. She would cure people of possession and heal their pain. He knew he wasn't allowed to bring the head of the princess to M.A.I.A., so he backed off. He reported the news to his superiors, begging for them to give him more time. He still had to murder her. If he didn't, he'd be killed by his own organization. He entered Kalonice Palace, now with a plan to gain their trust so that he could kill the princess as soon as she transformed.
