With the return of Conceptfan and a number of stories in progress I think it's time to start work on the final installment of my trillogy Not the One.

Susan is going to be creating a larger army this season, and here's a few of my inspirations

I didn't think I'd have anything before the new year...but I don't mind being wrong sometimes. And so...for your reading pleasure...I give you Not the One: Point of Origin Part I. It's on it's way to the SWM bookshelf as we speak, and you can check it out here as well: dru1076.deviantart.com/art/Not-the-One-P...f-Origin-I-721519026

The story is up. I might edit have to work a few kinks to make it line-up with the previous entries, but it works.

Wow, that's what I call an early Xmas present!

Loving the idea of levels of power upon levels of power and on and on... power to the power of power! Not to mention how the whole idea of a "Unchosen One" appeals to my tastes ;)

That was great fun, Dru... I especially loved

Most of all though, you have made me desperate to read the next part! I really hope

I am stoked that you enjoyed part I mate. Hope you had a great Christmas!

I'm currently around 2800 words into part II...and want to get around 4000 before I put it up. But it shouldn't take more than a day or two before you all see Tammy in action and get to meet more of Susan's army.

Just read them, Enjoyed it quite a bit though I don't really care too much for supergirl murder sprees, though I've enjoyed Susan's other adventures and Conceptfan stuff to an extant.

I really liked
-the Japanese woman using her super breath to freeze the room
-Tammy's use of traditional super breath to wipe out the town.
-The girls muscling up as they power up

I am glad you were still able to enjoy the story so far despite the violence. I should warn you, one reason I took to so long to start writing this is because its the darkest part of the story. There will be a lot more before this story is done. But it will, I hope, have enough going on to keep you interested.

The next part will feature the Harem Girls, and very likely a border dispute as people flee before the scarier soldiers Susan empowered (But I'm still working on that). If wont be up as fast pt II, But its in the works...

I'm loving this. For a long time I entertained similar ideas of what would happen to the world if a bunch of women everywhere become awesomely superpowered overnight.

Your story fit this bill perfectly.

On the best girls, it would make them oppressively better to do whatever they think it is good for us. On the worst girls, it would be just damning frightening like being close of an exploding volcano, or a collapsing dam.

It seems that Suzan chose women who had no previous power in society.

Or she superpowered some CEOs, or politicians, celebrities too? Is she giving power to all kinds of women? Helicopter soccermoms, religious zealot women, are on the list?

If the roster's open, I vote internet selfie queen. Someone used to being looked at who has a very refined sense of how to adjust her beauty to her moment-to-moment needs. Might even have some advice for her uber-neighbors. :)

Good fun. A little light dominant violence seems fine in the context that 'the pantheon' has a whole range of personality types.

I do not like some of the senseless violence, but I am willing to tolerate it as I think it will lead into a very interesting plot down the road. Much of the time I can figure out just where a story is going, but I
Really don't have a clue with this one and I always like that. Love the stories that have a turn that you never see coming.

I'm kind of the same way. I can understand how someone gaining such extreme abilities might abuse them. That can make for an interesting story. But I've never really understood the characters who take joy in senseless, pure destruction, or the stories that seem to celebrate it.
