Dirge & Dread

Threnody (Dirge) Ingram   - #14 La Muerte. 13 years old when she and Dread start their adventure. She has long curly black hair and bright orange eyes. She wears gothic lolita style dresses. Mostly black with orange whenever she wants to add a splash of color. Like most Celestial Uniques, Dirge has the ability to open portals between Earths at will. Unique: La Muerte has a strong innate talent for magic. Dirge learned how to focus her magic through singing. Like a fantasy style Bard she can damage opponents and/or buff friends with her voice.

Dread Ingram(adopted) - #42 La Calavera. 13 years old when she and Dirge start their adventure. She has short, spiky bone-white hair and dark purple eyes. She wears a red t-shirt with a tiger and shark yin-yang logo in the center, blue jeans, and red high-top sneakers. Unique: La Calavera is known to be super strong in the physical sense. Dread's major ability manifested as a powerful sonic scream. At 9 years old he jumped into a portal hoping to save his world and parents from an invasion. He spent the next 400 years moving from Earth to Earth collecting Ballisea's orbs. Conquerors like Dread age at a 100 to 1 rate. His body only aged 4 years while he traveled, but over time gathering Ballisea's magic allowed him to grow into the feminine body she always felt she belonged in. During her 400 year travels she visited thousands of Earths and made several friends. Though, she lacked the ability to create her own portals to visit them. Now with Dirge she can go to any Earth she's been to.

Dirge and Dread eventually become core members of SoundCrowd, but first they're going to spend 100 years adventuring before they reach high school. Dread is very familiar with Ballisea's methods, and Dirge gained a lot of knowledge about Uniques from Regal. Together they're a good fit to go exploring through my universe. I'll start collecting their adventures here.

Hey folks, welcome to my writing blog. This is where I'll collect my writings to share with the internet. Hopefully you'll find something here to entertain you. I'm in the process of moving. All new content will be found on my new blog at . Hugoverse : I have most of my universe planned out already, and I'm using writing prompts to fill it out while practicing my writing. A side effect of choosing a new prompt every day is that the story will hop around a lot. Timeline  - Lists the stories out in chronological order.  Guidebook  - A spotting book of the Souls in the Hugoverse. Fringes of the Hugoverse - Side stories that help explain how things work. Annexations - Oneshots chosen to be integrated. AlterNet - Stories that mostly take place in the AlterNet: a cross universe virtual Earthsized MMO.  Dirge & Dread  - Weekly(Sunday) adventures of Dirge & Dread.  Underworld - Stories involving the organized criminal underworld of the Hu


I've done a lot of writing over the years, though not much has been shared to the public. That's what this blog is going to be for. I have a few short stories from the past that I will be tweaking and sharing here. There are characters that I liked so much I decided to incorporate them into my universe, in general. The name of my universe is 'Hugoverse', because I can do that. My first book, Aurelio's Sun , will introduce the main universe. Some of the characters from short stories on this page will eventually appear in stories with Soundcrowd. The "important" characters of my universe are mostly based on Lotería cards for different reasons, but they're all special in a way. To start with here's the first character. His name is Vegas . Vegas is the first character I created that felt special to me. I came up with him for a creative writing assignment. I don't remember the specifics, but I'm pretty sure it was something along the lines o

Hugoverse Guidebook

This is where I will start storing information about my Universe to help add some context to my short stories.  Magic: Magic is a natural force present on all Earths, though not all Earths have a population that can tap into it. Once a Soul learns how to tap into magic on one Earth they can tap into the magic from other Earths. Nanos:   Microscopic machines that excel at efficiency. As a result they work together and learn to optimize the tasks they're trained for. On some Earths they allow Zeroes to tap into magic, while on other Earths they evolved to mimic magic.  AlterNet:  A network that allows users from alternate universes to communicate with each other. It is an Earth that is completely dominated by nanos. Earths with the right technology can project their consciousness to that Earth, and the nanos will form an artificial body for their consciousness. This is primarily used for gaming, and has essentially become a giant cross universe MMO. ( AlterNet
