I wrote tribute book for LP


#1

Hi, I wrote tribute “mini” book for LP just recently. It’s part one of planed 4 in total. It’s a fiction based on LP songs (to date). I am amateur writer, this will be my only book ever, should I produce all four parts after all. I think I will, its something that I need to get of my chest as my thanks to the LP, but should there be negative response from the public, then maybe I will finish it only in private for myself. It’s really only work from a fan to LP.

The main character was supposed to be named Chester, but I changed my mind since some people may object that he’s nothing like Chester. They could be right, its a fiction. But, I like to think of the story as “Chester” in the parallel universe facing different kind of inner demons. Or maybe not, I did not personally knew Chester, I wish I did, maybe he was just like the character in the book. Either way, it’s supposed to be “heavy”, to make the reader think and learn about himself more, same way I learned more about myself from LP songs, the emotions I got from them. Thank you LP!

I can’t afford it just now lol not a cent left, but the cover looks interesting. How long did it take you to write bud? I’m an ameture writer too but never delved into much novel/fiction I’ve more been practicing poetry… Haven’t read much LP fan fiction…met a chick a while back who gave me a copy of an unpublished LP fan fiction manuscript…it put me off reading that stuff for a while to be honest ahem it was let’s just say NOT appropriate

I’m glad your putting it out there, I wish more people read

Hi, it’s free if you have kindle unlimited service on amazon. I would made it free, but I myself am not financially well off, couldn’t even afford to “order” a proper cover for my ebook. Little “insider” information: It’s actually picture of me, just applied few filters to make it look like a sketch and if possible, professional. The book itself is rather short, around 30k words in length. It took me good two weeks of continuous work to write, edit, and sync it into the songs as much as I could, so I though I may ask for a “reward” for my work. Hope my work is not just as inappropriate as the one of that chick you met. It’s bit heavy, but that’s to be expected, since it was inspired by LP songs. I’m sure guys and girls will look at the book in completely different light, and will have different experience reading it, but I believe both can enjoy it, even to start understanding better each other. But that is not the point of the book. The point is, that life is complicated, and the choices we do have consequences. For better or worse, it’s always point of view. Thank you for your comment, hope this answered your question!

Linkin Park – Figure.09 3:17

DI was out of action, his jaw beyond dislocated, with a tear on his left cheek because of how much it moved. The jaw bone did laceration to his cheek from the inside. Left elbow and knee, both snapped with bones protruding out, bleeding out…No begging, no cries, no pain screams. ‘Though mother fucker’ Tomas thought. Just awaiting his end looking straight into Tomas’ eyes. If he could, he would say: ‘Finish me!’ Not because of the pain, but because he lost. There was no way back, just a chance to keep his honour and die in combat. As the initial shock of the crowd on what just took part in front of them fell off, the crowd’s chants calling for DI’s death began! Tomas didn’t say anything, just stood there, looking, at what he had done once again. He was just about to walk away. He couldn’t do it, nor wanted to do it, even though he knew, that DI possibly killed more than just one man that had died instantly on the spot that night, his friend Chen hurt, lamenting above the guy that erupted like a geyser from his mouth… He couldn’t. ‘DI’s own clan would kill him anyway.’ But DI did something unexpected. He used his good right foot to chop into Tomas’ left knee from behind it as he stood above him, sending him falling onto him. Then he tried to stab Tomas in the neck with his protruding radius bone at the wrist. Tomas caught the attempt with his right arm, wrapping it around, so that once he fully flexed his arm at the elbow, his elbow would press against DI’s already snapped elbow joint from behind, and that he got control of his wrist, holding it. It opened DI’s wounds even more, and you could hear a loud cry of pain in that one moment. Then? Then he proceeded to break that arm with three judo rolls, where he used DI’s own body weight to generate momentum, slamming him hard into the ground. Again, and again. Each time, while holding DI’s already broken arm in fixed, static position, breaking it two more times in the forearm area. In the final third roll, he grabbed him just above elbow level, so that his Humerus bone did break too. Then, he just repositioned himself around DI’s body, so that DI would be face down to the floor on his belly. Then, while still holding that arm at above elbow level. He would pull it hard up, and at the same time, with a massive force using his power, and body weight, would step on him. First, at his Humerus again, opening it like a flower, exposing the bone ripping through the skin, and right after that, at the shoulder, dislocating it from the joint. Following up was DI’s neck. Tomas pulled up hard DI’s arm that he had in his possession, and at the same time, applied kick to DI’s neck area, just below the jawline, utilizing his strength, body weight, and assistance of gravity. It snapped like a match. The moment when DI’s ever-increasing cries of pain stopped.’ They all cry in the end’ Tomas thought to himself in momentary satisfaction. (Absolute silence) Only because DI’s cries faded instantly. The crowd was silent long before, in shock, seeing that brutality. Surprised by Tomas’ ability to “brake” a man so quickly, as that. To them it was like: Snap,snap, snap (first two snaps of the forehand and the Humerus), SNAP (Humerus again), SNAP (dislocated shoulder) and finally: ‘SNAP!’ (of the neck), and that was it. It happened so quick, and with such brutality… They have seen Tomas to do that before, to break bones multiple times. Sometimes at multiple places. But never in such manner. It was always when the bully still tried to struck Tomas, that he broke opponent’s bone in defence, but never multiple times, at multiple places after a singular attack of the opponent. It was almost like execution. Not that DI deserved any better. Not that they didn’t call for DI’s death just moments before. But, because they have never seen the “ghost”, “the merciful”, lash out in such a brutal manner. ‘He almost just walked away. Now this?’ They were surprised, and so was Tomas. He couldn’t help it, but to think that he had let himself down again. Like being shot into the back… By himself! ‘You will never fight again? You are a killer now! Look what you have done! You have become, what you hate! How are you any better?’ He knew then and there, that this will never go away. He will have to live with it forever, in shame. Hiding it away. He look at Chen for the last time, who was looking right back at him. He didn’t see no disgust in Chen’s face, no surprise, almost looked thankful, but he gave him a nod with his head, as if he was saying farewell. Tomas started to leave, and he could hear that lynching of the remnants of the flutes had begun. Wasn’t sure if to protect him, or just out of hate, or because they could blame it on him.
