Little by little, the story continues

Well I know that sometimes that I fear this might one day become a dead community,but I fight to keep that from happening. It has been a long ass weekend going all over Italy and I decided to focus some of my attention to our dear (almost) dead Arborgast Jones. I've come up with some ideas that I'll post here so that it can be yayed or nayed and such.

Some ideas included are as thus:
1) You never really see Arborgast left eye properly because it is hidden behind his monocle, since he'll never take off is monocle (even in his sleep?) Kind of like Sanji, he'll even have his hair swept off to the left side but not as long, just enough to create a shadow.
2)I'm just toying with this idea but Arborgast has two bodies or possible a twin brother, and the other one is buried where no one knows where except Arborgast, perhaps under 'the willow tree' in the cemetery. "The body" as it shall be known until I get the kinks worked out was killed by being shot through the left eye (perhaps by Arborgast himself). Don't worry the story is still basically a comedy but its like in One Piece where drama is thrown in so its not a 2 Dimensional story. There is plenty of funny going into this piece so it deserve some horror and a slap of drama. Trust me I've got some funny ideas.
3) Nicklin Booth is the secondary (if not first) main character (since I might want it from his narration point) with Blee and Vorce as a tertiary plot line focus.
4)The story will be split up into three focuses: Arborgast Jones and the town of Ferncliff with their wacky misadventures; Nicklin Booth trying to get out of town/ finding out the mystery of the town and Arborgast Jones; Vorce and Blee hiding from the vampire council and the councils attempts to find them. It'll all blend together.
5) Because Arborgast's strange paranormal lineage and background, faced with the shocked of his brother's/ own death caused the strange events and condition of the town, in his way to forget or to rectify his/brother's death. Its sooooo complicated but I'll try to get some of it worked out.
6)Behind his monoclee, his left eye is a strange extra dimensional spirital vortex portal, the focus and power source for all the craziness in the town and the warping or reality. It is also the only way out of the town.
7) The Pirate Captain is the brother of Shelley the lake monster, who Converse Knox comes to fall in love with.
8) Converse Knox is plagued by a band of tickle ghosts but no one believes him. I want to make this a running gang, where he laughs at awkward and bad times, and his misery that people think his is crazy.
9) At one time I want Nicklin Booth to try to kill Arborgast Jones because he thinks by killing him, he can get out of town, but it it ends up being another misadventure where hilarity insues. At the end Nicklin succeeds, like pushing Arborgast off a building, but Arbogast just gets up from the ground and walks away.
10) In the cemetary the gravestones move. Also they all have the names of the towns people on the graves, but no one ever notices. It freaks the shit out of Nicklin.
11) Nicklin gets freaked out by a lot of what goes on in the town but half of the comedy comes from everybody else NOT being scared and acting like its noraml or oblivious.

Well That's all that I can squeeze out for now. Hope you like some of these ideas. Ciao!

I have to say that I am thrilled with these ideas. I adore them. Please let me make love to them! NOW. GO.

I see these things in my head and they totally fit.

I love both the 'body' idea and the 'eye vortex' idea because they really do have a load of psychological shit that goes along with it. I will say that I'm not too hot on the fact that the body is the 'twin brother', mostly because the idea of Arborgast being one of a kind thrills me. Specifically that he is the product of two semi-mutant families. A mutant-thoroughbred, so to speak. But I love the idea of him having a copy of himself that he murdered, through some twist of magic/supernaturality. Perhaps a split personality that split off from him? A psycho Arborgast that he had to eject from himself so that he could save the world from himself? Of course, since it's a part of himself, it's not really dead, but the fact that it has a corpse and is planted under the willow helps him believe it. Or something. Tell me what you think.

I adore the Nicklin killing Arborgast idea. I mean, I can picture him, after all the morbid hilarity of trying to murder someone, he finally succeeds. He had a mental breakdown, maybe rocking back and forth in a fetal position, and then we see Arborgast walk away whistling. Hehe.

OMG CONVERSE'S TICKLE GHOST IS AMAZING. The awkward laughing scenes will be freakalicious to craft. It'll also be useful when trying to pull of the "Cool Converse" parts. Do you remember? Converse Knox is supposed to be incredibly cool, but a failure at life. Totally incompetent. So we could have him walking down the street with a bored look on his face, and he'll pass some girls who are like "Oh he's so cool!" And then he'll twitch and giggle.
