That's one weird title, but I have to say that I made the Nearra-Charlotte complex with a simple idea in mind. There's a complication in the Lost story.
There's a backstory. There's ALWAYS a backstory, right? ;)
So Weewaa (and if you don't know Weewaa by now, get OUT) told me about how in class they ahd been looking at the political side of the Wizard of Oz. Turns out the story is one big political cartoon! O_o and no, I don't mean that if you turn the pages fast enough it will make a little movie start to play. Dorothy is supposed to be the Populist Party, the Emerald City is a representation of money, the Yellow Brick Road is the path to money (yellow? gold? gold=money, right?), yada yada yada....it's actually pretty cool to look at it that way.
Weeeellll....you should know what's coming next...I thought it'd be cool to incorporate something like that into MY story. The problem was which story. I didn't want to do Shadow Kingdom because that is NOT a good story for politics, WOR was too far along, and most of the others I was just like NAH. So I settled on Lost--a story with a lot of hopes from me and yet one that isn't too developed yet. (Okay, not developed at all....I keep changing the storyline....) So tada, I am incorporating the: political state of warring countries and standby and alliance forms aftermath era (post-war) of World War 2. Phew, that's a long statement....
But wait! That's not it!
Besides the whole World War politics thing, my friend (who is a little bit wild...okay really wild) told me in class she was reading True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle by Avi in class, and that they were planning on acting it out. (She, of course, was Charlotte, and would be yelling at my friends to get into character and act and talk like Zacahriah or Jaggery....sigh....) If you haven't read the story, it's about a girl named Charlotte who is the only (and female) passenger on the ship the Seahawk, which is taking her back to....Britain?....because she was studying in America. She's like 13. Well, my class wasn't studying the True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, and I felt kinda left out, so while she was being all the in character I jumped in adding a NEW character to the story....and then we were off! We wrote our banter down on notecards and apparently we've taken Avi's story and have gone off on a tangent. A very, very far tangent, and needless to say, it's great fun. Now as we spin this story (I use present-tense because we're not done yet) I was thinking, how great and cool would it be to put it in one of my stories? And again, the questions was WHICH story to put it in....so everybody, say it with me now....I chose....
And there's the Nearra-Charlotte Complex. In my version/parody of True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, Nearra will be Charlotte, obviously, and I'm going to have a great time with my crazy mind and my World War 2 scheme....hehe.
