All his life, he was never good enough. Now he’s perfect.

Abuse and the effects of abuse on the human mind have been documented since the beginning of recordable time. We hear stories about someone “flipping out” and going on a destructive rampage after years of abuse.

Names like Caligula and Ariel Castro compete for the more well-known historical notes and media bylines. Yet, those are only the ones who were caught or acted in such a public manner that it would be hard to turn a blind eye to their actions.

Humans have an alarming tendency to turn the other cheek because of how grotesque and disturbing someone’s actions are or a desire to avoid the consequences of involvement by “staying out of it”.

Both of which serve to empower the abuser and further violate the victims.

What would happen if a small town banded together to bring down their own, homegrown horror? What or how much would it take to trigger a response? How would they come to terms with their own potential influence on past, present, and future events? 

Perfect was a 2019 NaNoWriMo project I was too scared to post publicly – even though I created a talk show podcast for the fictional town it’s based in!

Now that podcast can be found here, as blog entries in the Solrun Gazette. Pick an episode, click play, and come join the hunt.

Wishing you much peace, happiness, and success,
