“Eris city has never been a great place to live. People get by but there is a lot of bad things in any city this size. The homeless, the garbage, and not to mention the things that go bump in the night. Most people don’t believe in the last one. They all chalk up mysterious circumstances to the mad city living.
Well, all but the Eris midnight report. There the only paper in the city that dares to tell the truth about it all. Of course that means that people see it as nothing but a joke. Vampires and ghosts and goblins? Well that’s just silly they all think. Well they’re all wrong. I really wish they would pay attention to us once in a while. Maybe then less people would get hurt.” –Ben Westford.
Walking in the Dark has a long a bothersome history. It started off as an idea I had in high school. It originally went on for about four years before I realized it really wasn’t what I wanted it to be. I was planning on pushing forward and finishing the original story but the more I wrote, the less I liked it. Eventually I just stopped updating, hoping I’d get inspired and wrote some more pages. It didn’t happen. That’s when I decided to end it.
The idea to re-start the series, from the very beginning was not an easy one. I however did feel these characters needed something better than the last bit of life they were clinging to on the old story. I do hope you all enjoy this new vision of them and don’t hate me to much for scrapping the original concept almost entirely.
