So, I'm tired, and I don't have the time or brain power to hammer out many specifics at the moment, but, I came up with an I idea for a story that, I feel, has a great deal of potential. I'm just going to share my notes for now, no logical order to them, but, I hope to garner some interest so when I get home and I'm nice and awake, that I can formulate the idea further. Anyway, here they are. The stars are cosmic beings, great in power, knowledge, and wisdom. The light seen across the universe is created by these beings after they die. Exceptionally powerful individuals create the largest stars, and even black holes. A black hole can also be created through many deaths, effectively, a mass grave. The big bang was the death of the first, spawning a nearly immeasurable number of beings in the process. Different cosmic beings inherit different abilities, creating a diversity of powers. Significant celestial bodies are the legacies of great heroes and otherwise. The names of these great heroes were also inherited by modern individuals. Humans are chosen, deemed the last remaining option to protect the galaxy. One night, as ordinary as any other, a bright, almost blinding blue light lit up the night sky. As large and as bright as the moon, maybe more so. This was the result of a catastrophic explosion, the death of a grand star, billions of miles from the Earth.
