Dislikes: Middle-class ideals


College Slice

Glass of Milk posted:

Robert is childish, a teenager, and prone to the irrational behavior that teens show- for him his father's death (even in war) is nothing less than a murder. It's the same mindset that leads him to think his father could be alive though all evidence is against it and his expectation he'll show up immediately and victoriously defeat his father's killer. He's on a fool's errand to save his father, and barring that, avenge him, but he's too naive to realize he's basically doomed from the start.

How old of a teenager are we talking here? I could see a twelve-year-old wanting to hunt down his father's killer from the war, but a twelve-year-old isn't going to be able to do it. On the flip side, I can see an eighteen-year-old being capable of hunting down his father's killer, but an eighteen-year-old in 1917 is going to have realized a lot of people have died in the war and pinning the blame on one rank-and-file soldier is pointless.

Right between- fifteen. It wasn't particularly common in WW1 for Americans that young to go from my research, though something like 250k British teens under 18 served. It wasn't too uncommon around the era, though- in the US Civil War it's thought as many as 20% of the soldiers were under 18.

Specific to the story, there's an adult who helps convince the character to enlist by promising to use his rank and influence to get him to an air squadron directly. An adult might be skeptical (though plenty of at-age recruits are made similar promises), but someone young, emotionally vulnerable and impressionable... I remember being fifteen pretty well. It's not the best age in the best of times.

I really want to avoid making it a list of things that happen, but I take your meaning. I guess I'm trying to approach it like the book blurb, and I guess it's a little more informative than that.

You're right, don't make a list, but you need to present some kind of specific dilemma Robert faces. Without any specifics, I can't see the shape of the story. I mean, your queries aren't even making it clear that Robert is joining an air squadron at all. You are not conveying enough information.

***

I don't want to be mean and pick apart a story when I have so little information, but for me the premise still seems to have a plausibility problem. Your justification for Robert going off to war is that he's immature/childish and doesn't really understand what war is... but he's recruited by an adult who should be mature enough to understand what war is. And if the high-ranking officer cared so much about Robert's father, would be really try and recruit Robert's underage, emotionally vulnerable, and (in your own words) childish son to join the same war that claimed his life? The high-ranking officer should know that the chance of finding the one who killed Robert's father are slim at best, and that person could die long before Robert gets a chance for revenge. Maybe they're already dead for all he knows. Robert should understand some of that at least, if he's capable of keeping up a ruse that he's 18.

Ignore this paragraph if Robert is joining as support staff and not as a pilot. By recruit him to an air squadron, it gives me the impression that he's going to be a pilot. I suppose that could be possible if his father flew crop dusters or something and taught him, but otherwise it seems like he would need a bit of time being trained how to fly. You could do that off-screen, but if you do so, you make people wonder how he could get through training without anyone suspecting his age. If you do it on-screen, it's more time it takes to get the story started.

To me, the whole premise of wanting revenge and being recruited by a high-ranking officer to get it doesn't make a lot of sense if Robert's father was killed by an enemy soldier... but it would make a lot more sense if the high-ranking officer suspected that Robert's father was killed by a traitor on the inside, but can't prove it.

I appreciate talking it through, and all the help- I haven't been clear enough in the query, and it took months to work out how to position the characters to make this happen. If there's issues that don't make sense or seem implausible, then it's better to find them now. I've had it edited and proofread a couple times, and it hasn't come up as an issue, but new perspectives are always helpful.

So, specifically, there's a Colonel McAllen, a recently retired lifelong solider from a family of soldiers, but his conceit is that he's convinced that "war makes men", that there's no way for Robert to deal with his grief except to confront it directly by going to fight. So the Colonel believes he's doing the right thing by getting Robert into the fight, and he believes he has enough connections within the military to make this happen- to circumvent all of the training that's needed. It's an insane thought for today, but there are examples of this happening during the war- specifically as research and part inspiration, I had read the memoir "Horses Don't Fly" where the author was a truck driver and answered a flyer looking for airmen and went on to become an observer/gunner in the space of a couple weeks.

I think perhaps I misspoke by calling Robert childish- a better word would be sheltered, I guess? He's hurting, in a society and time that doesn't have the same concepts of dealing with grief that we do now, and he's suddenly being told by an authority figure, "Hey, going off and fighting will make you feel better, and I can make it happen painlessly for you." It's an incredibly flawed idea, and Colonel MacAllen is approaching things from his particularly warped perspective. He's doing a tremendous disservice to Robert, but he's convinced it's right because of his own experiences and frankly, his hubris. And Robert, for his part, is naive or desperate enough to believe him. And when it turns out that the Colonel (of course) can't deliver on his promises- well, that's the novel- Robert's signed up to go avenge his father in an effort to get closure, but when he runs into people who finally tell him "You can't do this", the rest of the story is the resolution.

I've tried to revise the query to be less terrible:

Revenge, fifteen-year-old Robert had decided, was the only way to heal a heart.

On a cold November morning in the year 1917, Robert learns that his beloved fatherís plane had gone missing over the skies of France. In a society that offers no outlet for his pain, he lashes out at his faith, his friends and his grieving mother.

Itís only when Colonel John MacAllen, a lifelong soldier and war hawk, provides Robert with a proposal that seems to offer a remedy to his despair: to speed Robert to the war, to use the Colonelís connections and influence to bypass all obstacles, and to somehow help Robert find release in vengeance. For the young and desperate teenager, there seems to be no other way to move on, and it speaks to a flickering hope he still holds that his father might live, and that Robert might yet find him if he goes.

At first, all proceeds as the Colonel had promised, but with suspicions mounting about him as he moves farther from home, Robert withdraws inwards for fear of being discovered. Worse, he discovers that there are limits to the Colonelís influence among the officers he encounters. With nobody else to turn to, Robert must learn to trust those around him to be able to determine his fatherís fate. His quest for that knowledge may put him and his new friends in danger, but his desire for vengeance may only lead to ruin.

I rewrote it the way I would given the content of yours:

A young man will discover whether the cure for grief is revenge.

In November 1917, after learning of his father's disappearance during a mission over France, Robert, in his anguish, lashes out at his faith, friends, and his heartbroken mother.

The mysterious colonel MacAllen offers Robert an enticing proposition: enlist, bypass the barriers designed to prepare soldiers for the horrors of war, and discover the truth of his father's fate behind enemy lines - an offer the impetuous 15 year old cannot refuse.

Things go wrong from the start, and Robert finds himself on the front lines of the most hellish conflict in human history with none of the training of a regular soldier and beyond the limits of the colonel's influence, surrounded by soldiers who doubt his motives and abilities.

He must rely on his brothers in arms while discovering the courage inside himself to survive without letting the thirst for vengeance lead him to ruin.

Obviously, a stowaway too, of any specialization. Such as, another porn historian.

The two experts argue throughout whole story, including a dramatic moment when John is passionately explaining to Willie that 'No, if you look at the original carving the lithograph was made from she's clearly not su-' only to be cut off by an erupting volcano.

The key moment of usefulness to the expedition is their clearly identifying a plant because they've seen a Greek fresco of it sticking out of an orifice.

Oh dear, the non-native english writer and long time lurker from a few pages ago is back. I do have a full story now, 4500 words. I plan to submit the swedish version to my "publisher" in a few days, after doing another revision (It's a small but hard-working swedish publisher, and he does release some of my short stories in E-book and audiobook format). I've also done a translation in English. It's a kind of darrrrrrk and grrrrim fantasy/horror story, and it's actually based on the lyrics of one of the songs for our crappy doomish-stonerish metal band. It's called "Smoke on the bog"... yeah, you get the pun. Actually, it's not about that kind of "smoke" at all. Anyway, we're thinking about releasing the song on our up-and-coming first album, perhaps as a single, so I imagine that some kind of co-release of the short story would be cool. At least we can re-use the artwork.

Is there someone who would be interested in looking at this story? The main thing would be pointing out blatant grammatical faults, and terrible misuse of words. I seem to realize what mistakes I've done as soon as I become aware of them, but I miss a lot of stuff. If you have suggestions for the story itself, go ahead. So... a non-english dude trying to do a slightly bloody and creepy, but still aloof, Borges in English. How bad can it be?

urban fantasy...and a freaking kitchen sink.

the main kin however are

  • humans (just plain old humans. they do have the potential to become any of these kin save for geizai and cambions)
  • cambions/ children of sin (half demons. the most common are half-succubi or incubi)
  • vampires (they're not the usual undead kind)
  • faerah ( a kinda original race of animal or plant shapeshifters. their cousins were descended from them.)
  • overnaturals (basically, x men styled mutants)
  • geizai (sister species to the humans and psychics who left earth to colonize the galaxy. the ones that remained are far and few between)
  • revenants (undead who are bound by a precept. some refused to die while others were resurrected by a deal with the devil/god or a necromancer)
  • fae or bugfolk (unlike the usual takes, they're arthropod-like in nature and live in a different plane that overlaps with our own)
