Soul Slayer Chapter 2
    Andy’s body starts to shiver from the wind and rain.  I spot a door in the far corner of the building. I walk over to the door and check it, it’s open.  This is so much harder than just jumping off the building.  I let out a sigh.   I follow the door.  It leads to more steps that go all the way down to the gym.  That go all the way to the gym.  The body needs some dry clothes.  I find the boys locket room and break open the first locker I see. I take off the wet clothes and put on the red T-shirt and grey pants from the locker.   I look through the pockets of the sopping wet pants.  Just how long was this guy up there? I find a wallet and a phone.  The phone has some kind of password set to it.  I can’t seem to figure it out.  I look at the wallet.  I find his ID. 
    I guess I’m Andy Williams, then. Damn it, not even 18. Th

Soul Slayer Chapter 1
            The rain poured heavily.  Everything was coated in a thick layer of grey, it was the perfect night for demons.  A perfect night for a hunt.  I track one into an old brick school.  The large reptile slides through an open window.  Its six eyes stare off into the night once it gets inside.  The demon is looking for me.  I can almost smell its fear.  It believes it can get away.  I step into the school.   The demon’s footprints glow green in the dark hallways making it that much easier to track.  My sneakers squeak against the newly waxed floors. I hear a faint rustle by the staircase. I sprint toward it. The rustle grows louder as the demon hears me coming. Its footsteps are sporadic.
            I bound up the stairs.  The staircase ends at a tall window near the roof. I swear under my breath.

In the last tag on DA I participated in, this question came up, "What stories inspired you?"  At first my answer was just, "Everything" but that isn't really true.  I could say that everything that I have read, watched, or listened to has played some role but that is not entirely true.  There are many stories I have completely forgotten after reading, or just never impacted my writing or drawing.  There are certain tropes that show up in my writing over and over again.  These tropes showed up because I liked how they were used in other media that I enjoyed. 
    One of the tropes that always has to exist in my writing, whether I want it to or not, is the mysterious antagonist character.  This character is usually male in my stories and has villainous actions even though he is not the main villain.  There are a few stories that I probably got this from but one of the first is Yugioh.  I remember being interested in the show even though I did not like most of the characters and some of the card fights really bothered me.  I was there for one character, Yami, the pharaoh trapped within the millennium puzzle.  During the show they revealed little about him or his backstory, he was just there, occasionally mind crushing his opponents.  There are many other stories that I have seen that have a similar character with more questionable motives but I think that show is where the interest started.
    Another trope that shows up in my writing more often than not, is dark themes, and odd humor.  This might seem like an odd trope that shouldn't really exist, but I know exactly where this part of my writing is from, "Darker than Black."  This anime show focused on a lot of dark themes that were occasionally disturbing, but still had humor and odd moments in it that felt very unique to me.  The tone and the complexity of the series kept me coming back, and I was never disappointed.
    The last trope that sticks with me is the complexity of my stories.  This is not necessarily good complexity, just alot of layers.  I have a tendency to over think pieces of my story to a point where they don't really make sense.  This complexity could have been from many stories, but the one it always reminds me of is "Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles."  This series had a cast of four characters jumping into many different world.  Each world had its own story, past and future.  Most of the characters had backstories too, some that were often needlessly complicated.  I'm not sure if I liked the complexity by itself, or if I just liked how it took expectations and destroyed them.  Just when I thought the story was going to be simple Tsubasa smashed that idea to show the many layers of story threads instead.  Can't say I have gotten to that level of story telling yet, that I can predict the conception of the reader, so instead I add complexity hoping it would cause the reader to stop and think.

What stories have influenced your writing?  Was it a good influence?
