soooo... I HAVE TOO MANY FUGGIN IDEAS!
I have long since abandoned the Metroid project for something I invented on my own, as an independant story, but also as a tribute to Dean Koontz's Odd Thomas series.
That is not my most promising Idea. I am working on a book that goes parallel with a roleplay I participate in, about a man named Aeon. (get up to date on it's story/ RP at http://warriorcatsrpg.com/index.php?topic=397015.new#new
Aeon drew in a sharp, nervous breath preparing for the test that would grant him full seniority in the Hypnotist's organization. The greatest Hypnotist in the corperation, Janko, was standing a few yards to the left, clearly prepared to kill the winner of this competition. As Aeon assumed the position that came with his mental awareness, he drew the knife from his belt. "LET THE BATTLE COMMENCE!" Howled Janko, and Aeon's fellow trainee- no. His enemy- stepped into the arena. She was clearly female, as Aeon could tell by the color of her uniform. Simultaneously, Aeon and his opponent removed their masks. Aeon caught sight of his enemy's face, and breathed one word: "no..."
The girl was clearly in as much shock as him; before him stood Aeon's greatest love, Kia. "A-Aeon!" she stammered, letting her blade fall to the ground beside her. She swiveled towards Janko and said clearly, so that everyone could hear, "I won't fight him. Janko merely smirked. "Oh, I think you will." he said coldly, and he focused on Kia's meadow green eyes. After a few moments of this contact, in which Kia focused just as hard on Janko as he had on her, Kia turned back to Aeon, and retrieved her knife. She rushed towards him, and Aeon took up a defensive pose. The knife came at Aeon from all angles, but never connected with anything but the young man's own blade.
"Kia, stop! This isn't you!" He shouted, desperately hoping her willpower was greater than that of Janko. This proved not to be so, as she stabbed Aeon in his ankle, and then his upper arm. With no other option, Aeon pushed deep into Kia's mind, and felt the presence of Janko. "Get out of her head!" Aeon demanded through the passage that was Kia's mind.Aeon sensed Janko's smirk before he saw it. "Not until one of you is dead. I'll either have no choice to release from her mind as she dies by your hand, or let go as she slits your throat." Janko replied. At that, Aeon audibly cursed. He released his mind, and went back to his own body, only to see Kia's knife bearing down on him.
Instictively, He leaped to the side, and stabbed Kia in the spine. Janko clearly returned to his body, and turned to stare at Aeon. Quickly, Aeon closed his mind. "Kill her, Aeon." He ordered.
"Never!" responded Aeon.
"Well then..." said Janko, and Aeon felt his mind being intruded. He saw himself raise the knife to his love's throat, against his own will. his arm jerked sharply to the side, and it was over.
