Cut parking lot scene from Demon Guard

Posted by houndrat on Tuesday Nov 24, 2009 Under writing

Okay, so today I’m posting a cut scene from Demon Guard.? I actually ended up going in a whole different direction with the plot.? I hadn’t even remembered it until about two hours ago, when I dug it up in all it’s unedited glory.? I did spend some time trying to revise it a bit– because, hey, how else was I going to procrastinate working on REAL scenes?–but it’s still mighty rough-ish.? Maybe I can find a home for it in my sequel. *snicker*? ? Hey, a? girl? can dream, right??

Anyway, here’s the set-up.? Summer (the MC’s) old friends Kat and Allie go to spike demons in a parking lot to join the Academy, only–they’re not the meek little Stage Ones they’re supposed to be.? Rather, it’s an ambush, with three fully embodied demons waiting to attack.? ? Kat and Allie? are captured.? Summer and her friends Cody and Shade try to fend them off and save the girls, but will their efforts be enough?? Read on:

    um…why did you cut this? *smacks wrist*

    Very nice. Not only do you do snarky very well, you do action well too. This was very ‘cinematic’. I could visualize the scene as clearly as if I was watching it at the movies.

    Well done.

    I love the action here! Why, oh why did you cut this?!

    Lol! If this is on the cutting room floor, I wonder how amazing are the things you actually kept!

    Awwww . . . why are you cutting this? It’s brilliant! It’s really great! Poor Allie though….

  14. Tracey Says:

    Aw, poor Allie. :-( Very nicely done action! And the end is perfectly sad. You are made of steel to have cut this!

  15. Jennifer (Herb) Says:

    I can’t imagine cutting this but I absolutely love your writing style and would hate anything so beautiful to be cut.

  16. Niyrak Says:

    So much action. I like it. Did you let the friend live in the other version? Just curious ya know.

  17. colbymarshall Says:

    I agree–why cut!? You have a talent for action scenes…it never slows. And it was great how the action so seamlessly blended with emotion of the scene, too. Good one!

  18. CoryLeslie Says:

    Fantastic action scene! I loved the descriptions. You could feel these bodies moving!

  19. Kristin Says:

    Action scene! Very fun and very descriptive.

  20. Paranormalchick Says:

    OMG, I can’t believe you had to cut this…it woulda made me sick to take this out! But if it’s whats best for the plot…

    Great snip, discriptions were rockin’

  21. Aimee Says:

    Wow! I can’t believe this was cut! This was amazing, I loved it. Great descriptions!

  22. DH Kuypers Says:

    Wow. Lots of action & great writing!! You were really able to visualize what was going on here.

  23. Gretchen Says:

    First off, I love the new blog design. Second, great scene, great action mixed with the horrifying emotion of the ending. The paragraph that starts here – The remaining demon’s brawny arm still circled Allie’s neck – and the short one after I found my eye skimming only because we realize what is about to happen and we want to see if it actually does. You can move it faster there. Otherwise, I thought it was awesome.
