Tales from the Internet Update
I had my first decent night of sleep since Friday. . . While I was waking up, the entire story for Beatrice Nairobi/Max White came to me. For some preliminary info, I am now working on Tales from the Internet - which is a dark comedy/satire about the sad state of affairs on our favourite time waster. It will consist of 3 short stories. Beatrice is a black transgender woman of colour who goes online to rails against Trump and fascists. She has grown quiet a following - and is earning over $5000/month on Patreon. But Max is anything but. He has a Trump 2020 tattoo on his right hip, and he loves Trump. His bank account keeps going up all the time. He just uses the identity of Beatrice to gain money, fame and clout. The second story is called the Puppet Masters. After the events of Beatrice’s story goes down, one of her fans goes off the deep end. All she can see is Putin using Russian trolls and bots to destroy her idol - Beatrice, and when she tries to tell others, they don’t know what she’s talking about. They start to ‘transform’ into Russian bots and trolls as she runs in the streets of San Fran. The third story will start with a protagonist who will see all of this and shake his head. He will go up mount googolympus and ask the technical trinity - Mark Zuckerberg, Susan Wojcicki and Jack Dorsey, what the hell is going on. They brush him off and say - if you want to stay on the Internet you must obey the 10 technommandments or they will delete him. The end of that story, the protagonist says - oh hell no, I’m out of here - I’ll start a (popular alt-tech) account. Artwork is borrowed - except for the text.
