the start of my last story idea for first semester of senior project. this story has been in the works for ages, and probably has some of my favourite characters that i've designed in it (it probably isn't hard to see who i accidentally end up drawing the most).
this story is heavily inspired by the kurt vonnegut quote "true terror is to wake up one morning and discover that your high school class is running the country." it takes place in an apocalyptic alternate reality where one day, everyone over the age of 21 is killed. the country ends up being run like a high school popularity contest, where anyone who is "different" or "weird" or "not normal" is ostracized and often persecuted. cooper and his small gang try very hard to take these leaders down.
