The Others

The Others is an ongoing project of mine. Description, background, and all the rest will come in time. I have to test out a few things, but I hope to make it all readable. Couple of rules, things from me and by me will be italicized. This will be a first person perspective from the point of view of two characters in the world, with them swapping back and forth.

Comments and reviews are welcomed, though you should know that this has not been thoroughly edited.

The Others is likely counted as urban fantasy and science fiction. It takes place on Earth, and most of the events take place inside a research facility for an unnamed company. The company has a contract with the government (most likely with governments, not just one) to collect and dispose of a certain breed of human who has only been called Other. The Others began appearing in the early to mid nineteenth century and no one knows why or how they have come to be.

When pushed too far, Others become Off-ers and rip through anything and anyone in their way until their energy is depleted. They typically do not survive the experience.

Everything is named by the company, who put little effort into the names.

For the first thirty years of the company’s work with the Others, their tactics were to test the subjects and retain control however they could. A new supervisor came in and was a bit of a psychopath, but he was seeing results and the Others were supposed to be disposed of anyhow, so the company let it go on.

A young BT Supervisor noticed that the calmer an Other was, the more able they were to bring about results on purpose. He wrote up the original Comfort Protocols, which were initiated in a few of the facilities and found fantastic results. The company promoted him to facility supervisor for his efforts.

Besides knowing that the Others were different, and seeing a few Off-ers as a bag and tagger, he knows little about the Others and their mojo. He knows they’re dangerous, he knows they’re scary, but he also knows that they’re scared. Most of them don’t know they’re Other until they are bagged and tagged.
