Drove by miles of slash pile fires in a dark 330am world coming home from a late shift at work. Cold mist & smoke framed burning orange pyre colonies. An idea formed for an incredible plot twist that’s going to take my #NaNoWriMo to a whole new level. So here’s a little background to the original plot.
The Spindellar Ordinance was clear in its directives: eye to eye contact was forbidden unless medically approved or in the practice of medicine. Spindellar was the oldest of the laws handed down through the ages by the Ancestors who colonized Kepler-Z. Unlike other laws, it even explained the dangers and need for its existence. Named after the the now extinct previous inhabitants of the world they now populated, the ordinance was a mix of science, religion, and history. It explained the electrophysics in brief about how, for some species in space, the combination of the planet’s natural magnetic forces along with the psychotensive elements many (including humans) radiated, eye contact could cause subversive internal bio-damage. It was tantamount to murderous intent to break the ordinance. The history of the Spindellites was proof that beings of less cohesive character could exploit this fact and affect genocide.
