So I decided not to finish "Wandering Days." After about 5 revisions, I figure it's time to pull the plug, unless there's renewed interest in the NIMH community. However, I will share my stupid, nonsensical, and even more stupid Stone origin story for your reading displeasure!
Both Jonathan and Nicodemus were a part of special program as both were discovered to be the respective leaders of the mice and rats respectively. Because the story is in the rats' point of view and with the exception of some nightmares during the process, neither Jonathan nor Nicodemus couldn't remember the details of the experiment. Nicodemus, however, sees visions of Jenner taking over the colony and bringing it to its demise. The only way to stop the colony from its fate as far as Nicodemus can tell is to create a "work of good" (as Nicodemus describes it), forged with the power of courage for which the underlying effort is to do what is right even under what may seem insurmountable circumstances. He also sees a mouse in command of it, a conduit of its power, though the image is fogged. Thinking it to be Jonathan, who has the secret power to create objects of beauty out of ordinary objects, he has him be the maker of the Stone. With Nicodemus' help with conducting electrical powers the stone is created. Imbued with the power as long as its user has the courage to and wisdom to do what is right and just. Jonathan doubts his own destiny to be the one to be the conduit of its power, thinking himself too corrupt, and that someone with a more simple mind should be the conduit instead. He writes an inscription on the back as a reminder for when the time comes, its user must possess courage of the heart. "You can unlock any door if you only have the key."
Anyway, I feel it worth sharing. I know its stupid, but I thought I'd share anyway. :p
Anyone want to share their own origin story? Or make one up?
