Breakfast Serial: Milking It

April 23rd, 2009 — 12:56pm

Narrowed the list of possibilities down to:

Sanguine
Cut-Up
Cutlass
Spatter

If “blood-” names were on the table, I’d also toss in Blood Sugar, Bloodline, and Bloodstream. Guess I’ll keep those in my back pocket for later.

Anyway, yeah, preference?

Breakfast Serial: Palate Cleanser

April 19th, 2009 — 11:31am

Two things occurred to me while reading over the first Breakfast Serial post:

I: I need to thank H.H. Neville, Alex Cook, Thomas Moses, Sam Street, and Douglas Bookey for helping me out with the power-sets. I asked for random, quirky abilities — the stranger, the better — and they delivered. I’ll get into who’s behind whom another day (after the whole cast has been introduced).

II: “Bleeder” is a really unfortunate name for a teenage girl, even if she does have to open up a vein to use her powers. But, I’m at a loss as to what to call a person whose blood coagulates into a nigh-invulnerable armor when exposed to air. “Scab” has its own pejorative connotations. “Blood Clot” doesn’t fit. “Coagulation” is unruly. And, I can’t find a technical term that works.

Thus far, the best replacement I’ve got is “BloodBath,” and I’m not sure that’s any better. Also: it’s got kind of a ’90s Image vibe, which might not be so hip.

So, if anyone’s got any ideas, I’m all ears.
