Big refactoring/cleaning of the repository

- Remove the versionned scenarios OR drafts OR scenario released as
  webcomics (it is better to read them as webcomics now).
- Move the files around to be easier to digest by the (future) website.
- Rename the files to include an author name.
- Add a gitignore to move my own drafts under a hidden/not commited
  offline folder.
- Redo the README to be a notice about the format (for future website)

All modification were done using git mv; so I hope it will not mess
too much the history of the files.

# Ah and the Secret of the Dragons
## Chapter 0: Introduction
"_In the beginning, there was the Nothingness, a disorderly connundrum of paradoxes opposed to their very own existence. Then, matter was brought forth by the forces of Chaos' mere opposition to it. Reality took hold of Chaos and grew out of it, creating uncountable planes of existence and giving birth to the material universe, with its galaxies, stellar systems and planets. And from within the planets there emerged life as an expression of Chaos itself. Innumerable living beings were born and died forever disappearing, but there was one creature that perdured through the eons. The earth would tremble with their feet, the skyes would shimmer with the reflections of their scales and the far reaches of many worlds would echo with their voices, for they were the Dragons, the Zenith of Creation and the true children of Chaos and Evolution, and the reigned the material plane unchallenged by anyone. But very recently, a newcomer to existence, a small creature of ingenious nature, asked itself about the role of dragons in their everchanging world, Hereva. And that is when the oldest dragons took notice of them and their Great Tree and began speaking to them in riddles and playing with them as if they were ants with too many questions._
The rest, you know it already."

Everything in the forest crackled, croaked or emitted some kind of monotonous or strange noise, increasing the sensation of being in a place alien to the most familiar platforms of the Ah temples. In addition, a green glow flooded the forest, giving the place an even more ghostly appearance.

This time there was no doubt and they could hear that sound with clarity and closeness. Without a word, Shichimi advanced again through the thick mud with Yuzu beside him. The kitsune had changed his state of worry to that of alertness and his sense of smell told him that there was smoke ahead. Shortly afterwards, after a dense group of brambles and weeds, they saw a small cave whose vaulted entrance housed a small bonfire with a faint but comforting flame. Suddenly, something moved amidst the undergrowth, a short distance from the campfire, and a strange voice similar to the croaking of a frog uttered a few words.

# Scenarios
## Formating style:
Hey storytellers, welcome to this git repository dedicated to free, open and collaborative creation of scenarios for the webcomic project [Pepper&Carrot](http://wwww.peppercarrot.com). This repository exist in the purpose to build together a better entertaining experience around Pepper&Carrot.
We use the **markdown** format. Check the other scenario's sources to have an idea of the formating style and how the website does the rendering. Don't worry too much about it; everything can be fixed before publishing on the website. But here is a list of tips:
## Pepper&Carrot style:
1. No sex, no violence; write for all audience.
2. If you want to write for an episodes; keep it short (between 20 and 30 panels).
3. Try to be consistent with the world of Hereva, as written on the [Wiki](https://github.com/Deevad/peppercarrot/wiki).
4. Insertion of illustration and pictures is ok (must be CC-By compatible and use absolute links).
5. The main header h1 `# like that in markdown` has a special theme with a little separator under it. Use it for the top page title.
6. Text in italic `_like that in markdown_` after a picture or the main title(h1) will receive a special 'legend' theming.
## Filename
Example:
`Your-long-or-short-title_by_Your-name.md`
We use **markdown** format and english. Check the other scenarios in this repository to have an idea of the formating style. The file **episode-template.md** can help you to get started.
1. Short stories; between 20 and 30 panels.
2. One action per panel and not too much characters.
3. Less speech-bubble is always better.
4. Funny, Suprising or non-expected ending.
5. Monsters, epic landscape, special Fx: think big and cinematic!
6. Many information about the world are on the [Wiki](https://github.com/Deevad/peppercarrot/wiki).
6. No sex, no violence; all audience.
1. Use all letter small or capitalised and numbers, without accent or special characters.
2. `_` and `-` in filename will be replaced with space.
3. If you need a `,` insert two `--`
4. Use `_by_` to write your author name, it is required:

Episode 25: There are no shortcuts
==================================
_(Alternative title: The Butterfly Effect, Chaos theory.)_
**Pitch:** Muted episode (constraint: no speech bubbles). After ep24, the house of Pepper is a ruin. Thym, Cayenne and Cumin will show a powerful demonstration of Chaosah to Pepper and rebuild the house combining their power. Pepper will totally be excited by the spectacle and be eager to know how to do this kind of magic. We will see there are no shortcuts; and Pepper's excitement will not last for too long when she sees that she now just has more books to study...
**Notes:** This episode restores the power of the old witches Thym, Cayenne, Cumin; we rarely saw them using Chaosah's magic in group. It's also restoring the house of Pepper after destroying it in the previous episode. Also, the ending will have Pepper studying, so we'll be ready to jump directly to "The exam" in episode 26.
**page 01**
- External view and global shot on the house of Pepper. The house is now a ruin, the roof is smoking; a part of the Unity Tree branches are burned, probably by micro-suns. The morning light and first rays of sun on it add drama to the scene. Last night was probably tough after the partial explosion of the house (see previous episode, ep24 "The Unity Tree"). In front of this landscape of desolation stand our four witches –Cayenne, Cumin, Thym, Pepper– and one cat, Carrot.
- View on them all, side by side. They all have scratched clothes and dust on them. Some smoke in the foreground. The old godmothers look at the scene seriously. Pepper is still embarassed but looks at them with curiousity. What are they gonna do?
- Thym tells something to Cayenne, making a spiral with her finger. Cayenne looks at it very seriously and understands it as an order.
- Cayenne closes her eyes with hands folded together. A weird energy aura develops around her.

**page 02**
- Suddenly Cayenne opens her eyes and makes a large gesture with both hands, releasing a big wave of energy.
- The ruin of the house explodes suddenly in a large cloud of thin particles.
- Side view on Pepper extending her arm to touch the flying, colorful particles that are floating in the air with her hand. She is fascinated.
- Close up on her finger with a larger view on the particles; they are made of little cubes, pyramids, cylinders, spheres. Primitive small 3D shapes of the same color as the roof tiles, stones, etc...
- Cayenne in the background readjusts her hat as an old cowboy would do. Nothing spectacular for her, it looks like she just did a routine spell. Pepper in the foreground turns her head to look at her and is again fascinated. *Cayenne is really that powerful?*

**page 03**
- Thym now speaks to Cumin and describes a specific gesture with two fingers. Cumin nods her head to show that she understood the order.
- Cumin forms a circle of light with both hands and weird runes, red/violet symbols, are appearing as a cylinder column.
- Close up, a red shiny little butterfly made of light appears above the palm of Cumin. It's a wonderful and beautiful small creature with an infinity symbol as a pattern on its wings and with a twisted horn like a demon. It's impressive and thinly sculpted as a precious jewel but it also feels dangerous. Under it, a circle of runic incantations shows the audience it's a summoned creature; probably an important one.
- Pepper's jaw drops, she's looking amazed at Cumin. Carrot has the exact same expression next to her. *Cayenne, okay; but Cumin can do that?!* Cumin looks serious, and is lit heroically by the strong, reddish energy of the butterfly. Her hair is flying a bit, her cape too.

**page 04**
- Bird view to get a general view on the scene now: the godmothers plus Pepper are in front of the giant cloud of particles where the house was standing previously. Particles near the camera are more visible, the ones near the floor look like a cloud of dust. Thym unfolds her tiny arms toward Cumin. Cumin gives her the tiny red butterfly from her two palms has if it was a very fragile present. Pepper is fascinated by the scene, Carrot is hiding behind one of Pepper's legs, a bit affraid.
- Side view on the old Thym, smiling with the butterfly now flying over her hand (in a position similar to how a hawk/falcon trainer would let his bird land on his hand). Her smile plus the red light make the scene a bit mysterious.
- Close up: front view on Thym. (red butterfly in foreground, out of focus so really blury).
- Close up: front view on Thym closing her eyes.
- Close up (zoomed in further): front view on Thym closing her eyes with a dark background. We are entering in her head.

**page 05**
- Large shot with Thym in little alone over a pure black background with a thin dimensional perspecitive grid on the floor. A lot of particles are flying around her and feels now very colorful and digital object. The ones closer to the camera are tiny 3D meshes with a wireframe visible. Some [mathematical expressions](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chaos_theory) are also flying around. Thym is sweats a bit and is intensely focused; she is obviously waiting for the right moment.
- Symmetrical shot on the face of Thym who suddenly opens her eyes; while the background around her head is still made of particles over a grid. But now, every particle has vector trajectories visible, arrows, and everything looks linked to everything. Thym gets a flash of "the big picture" at this moment.
- Large side view with Thym now having a position like someone with a bazooka at the place of the hand (the one with the butterfly flying over it). She uses her second hand to maintain her arm because the butterfly is now flapping its wings at full speed; one can only see the motion blur. She screams an order at the butterfly to trigger the action effect. The light around the butterfly also intensifies a lot, showing the power of this incantation. The particles on the right of the panel are immediately affected by the wings of the butterfly and start describing turbulence patterns and the shorter turbulence pattern here and there combines into larger vortexes.

- (combination of multiple panels with chaotic frames): Close up in the particles swirling: we can guess a part of the tile pattern of the roof is reconstructing on the tornado of particles. Another close up in the particles swirling: a part of the front door with the lantern is being reconstructed here! In the background, bigger parts are also being reconstructed. Another close up in the particles swirling: the telescope of Pepper coming back to one piece!
- Extreme close up on Pepper's face: she almost has tears of joy, we can guess it's the best day of her life; she now sees the power of Chaosah, the power of her godmothers! The spectacle is everything she'd hoped for in the previous 24 episodes.
- Wide bird view: the shape of the full house is now here; small blocks are still combining themselves to produce details. Particles are still flying around but they are now only few lines made of particles around the part not finished. Pepper's house looks as good as new. Something really contrasting the ruin of panel 1.

**page 07**
- Shot on the three old witches of Chaosah. They're not even smirking and they look at the job done as if it was "just another trick they saw hundreds of time". The three of them look heroic and badass at this moment.
- Pepper is excited and turns around to the three godmothers like a fangirl with many questions for her three heroines. She is drawn multiple times, to suggest she bombards each of the witches with questions. Holding their hands, expressing "Wow", looking at the sky with her hand suggesting a "OMG!!". We understand Pepper is super excited. For this panel, Pepper can have speechbubbles with small pictures instead of text. The drawing to represent the question for Cayenne is "mini particles, question mark", for Cumin it's "butterfly, question mark" and for Thym "vortex, question mark". Thym can smile slightly in this panel, satisfied Pepper is now motivated to learn something.
- Long cut, Pepper is now inside the library (as in the previous episode). It's a general shot. Her excitement is now reduced to zero: two big stacks of books are now on her desk. It's not the type of answer Pepper was expecting and she is of course discouraged to see there are no shortcuts to learn this type of magic and she has to study all the books anyway. The three witches are leaving the book library with what we can guess is a smile.

Episode 29: The Underworld Dragon
=================================
* **Author:** David Revoy <info@davidrevoy.com>
* **License:** [Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0)](https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/)
**Pitch:** An Underworld Dragon plan to attack the coronation party and kill all the witches and important leaders. A rare opportunity in space/time to rule the world! Meanwhile, Pepper tries to explain a fundamental course of Chaosah on the patio to Coriander: small actions can lead do huge consequences and big changes are made of small changes combined. Her demo doesn't trigger any (immediate) effect. After laughting about her, Coriander invite Pepper to go to bed: everyone is visibly tired. But while they go to bed, the small change Pepper has made starts a chain reaction of events that will destroy the Underworld Dragon before anyone notice... Exept Cayenne.
**Concept** Setup the story in the over-used by cinema and manga "big creature attack" genre, but propose a twist in the way the creature even fail to attack and the heros solve the situation without even noticing about it. Worst, Pepper is comforted into her low-self estime while audience can measure her real power. I like the contrast.
**Scene 1: The plan of the Underworld Dragon.**
A large panel showing an underworld mess of fractal [nebulaes](https://www.qwant.com/?q=nubulae&t=images) with at the top-right of the picture a tunnel twisting in spiral to a bright light: an exit. The camera chases behind a sort of big evil black dragon creature: the Underworld-Dragon (later called U-D here). This large creature inspires fear; like a huge dragon of the size of Qualicity itself with claws and spikes everywhere, pattern of razor sharp teeth on all the body. No wings. The creature waves to the bright light source to escape the multi dimension tunnel. (overlays of 3D grid twisted and bent will be used to represent the multi-dimensional nature of this place.)
_U-D: Finally..._
_U-D: The breach I was hunting for centuries just appeared!_
Portrait on the U-D; he has electric blues eyes with fury in it. His face is lighten by the proximity of the bright tunnel and let the reader appreciate all the details of the creature's face.
_U-D: All the leaders..._
A close-up with the same view-angle on the furious eyes.
_U-D: ...all the witches sleeping over one place!_
The U-D slide in the exit; we can see only the half part of his body still in the underworld.
_U-D: A rare opportunity in space-time!_
In the middle of a rock desert at around 30km of Qualicity, deep stary night, a large creature appears in a sort of 3D wireframe of energy.
_U-D: The one chance on millions to destroy them all and finally..._
The U-D is now almost totally materialized (a bit of his tail still is in wireframe). The shot is setup from a viewpoint on his back while the large silhouette walk heavily to Qualicity in the distance, covered with mist. (Notes: this panel can look like a Godzilla parody and set the genre even a bit more strongly. It is likely this panel will be the thumbnail of the episode.)
_U-D: RULE THE WORLD!_
**Scene 2: Chaosah late night discussion.**
Zoom on Qualicity.
We see the specific patio with balcony of the coronation party (episode 28). The place is almost desert now, every guest probably went to sleep. Only one or three servers walks with stack of plates in their hands, they clean-up the party with broom. We can see Coriander still talking with Pepper at the balcony.
_Coriander: So, in short, you tell me your magic -Chaosah- can spell things without using magic?..._
Shot focusing on the two girls, Pepper is talking to Coriander: she still has a brochette of meat ball in her hand. She does large movement to try to elaborate what she was explaining. She looks at the sky a bit confusingly as if she collect information on the top of her head. Coriander look at her very interested but tired, a glass of fruity things in the hand, her crown is on the balcony.
_Pepper: Yes, and No... It is still triggered by magic, but requires just a very small amount._
Close-up on Pepper with a wood stick in her hand coming from the brochette. She just eat the last meatball; she now has only the stick of wood pinched between her fingers and talks as she chew the meatball.
_Pepper: For example if I take this wood stick..._
Close-up on her hand throwing the wood stick with a pinch from her finger; we can notice a tiny sparkle of violet energy around the move.
_Pepper: ...and throw it with a little bit of Chaosah magic..._
A view from under; we see the stick spinning in the air 3 or 4 meter under the balcony with its motion described as a curve; Pepper continue to explain.
_Pepper: ...it technically create a new unexpected series of events that can lead to big things!_
Shot on Pepper, happy about her explanation, she keeps smiling at Coriander and wait a reaction; expecting Coriander to be equally exited by her demo.
_Pepper: You understand?_
Shot on Coriander scratching her chin: she is really not convinced.
_Coriander: ..._
Shot on Coriander she start to walk away the balcony smiling, and she makes fun of Pepper. Pepper is a bit unhappy by the behavior of her friends. Carrot laught.
_Coriander: I understood if you continue to throw garbage like that by the balcony, my new kingdom will be totally polluted by tomorrow._
Bird view on both, Coriander walks to a stairway leading to an entrance. Pepper follows.
_Coriander: We better go to bed now, it's late._
_Pepper: Sure!_
**Scene 3: The chain reaction:**
It starts with a close-up on the wood stick, still falling.
The wood stick bounce on (and sting) the bottom of a bird that was sleeping (his eyes looks like suddently surprised).
The bird flies over roof and screams angerly. Visually we see a lot of big broken notes of musics.
Bird view on two or three villagers of Qualicity in the street. They woke up, one with a fire lantern in hand, nightcaps, bare foots and pyjamas to see the bird doing noises. The stick of wood fall on the pavements.
Portrait on the villager holding the lantern, a blond guy with a nightcap. He looks seriously at the sky while his body is oriented to walk in a slightly different direction.
Close-up on the soft bare foot just about to walk on the wood stick (with its sting upward, stuck between the pavement). We can anticipate the pain.
Full body shot of the villager, holding his foot in pain while jumping. The lantern fell on the floor: and we can already see the petrol on the floor flowing in the in-between of the pavement like a tiny river of fire.
Shot on a wooden door with written on it "fireworks warehouse" with a rocket drawed on the door; the tiny river of fire flows in between the pavement and reach under the door...
Close-up on the villager face sudently not concerned anymore by the pain of his foot and very affraid by the situation.
**Scene 4: The result.**
We loop to a landscape shot from The back of the U-D. A shot a bit similar to where we left him in the story. But he has made progress and now Qualicty is just a few kilometers away.
Bird view shot of the street of Qualicity where the chain reaction took place. The villagers are all running away; a large amount of fireworks rockets is exploding and made a hole in the roof of the warehouse with large fire.
A landscape of Qualicity; the colored rockets flies all in the same direction -like grouped together- from the roof of the warehouse to the direction of the U-D. It looks like a huge shooting star made of colors.
Quick portrait of the U-D lighten by multi-colored incoming fireworks. We feel a speed zoom effect. He is clearly surprised by the projectile incoming.
Side view in the distance, over the leg of the U-D we can see a large explosion, he took it in head.
_SFX: KABOOOOM!!!_
**Scene 5: Epilogue: (2 pages?)**
Bird view inside the bedroom of Coriander; Pepper sit on a bed in same bedroom, she pet Carrot while looking at the windows. Coriander brushes her teeth in pijamas, in front of a mirror.
_SFX(distant and smaller): KABOOMMMM!!!_
_Pepper: Still fireworks at this hour...?_
Coriander while brushing her teeth does a theatrical imitation of a prophete who predicted something important to make fun of Pepper.
_Coriander: Or big consequences of your Chaosah magic!_
A shot from outside of the windows; looking inside the bedroom. The camera zoom out. We can see Pepper throwing a pillow in direction of Coriander.
_Pepper: He! Don't make fun of me!_
_Coriander: Hahaha!_
The zoom out continues; we now are behind a silhouette up on a tower of the castle of Qualicty. A silhouette of a witch we can recognize: Cayenne. She has her broom stick in her hand.
Portrait on Cayenne; serious but slightly smiling; We understand she saw and understood everything. The master is sort of proud of her student.
Humoristic panel to end, the U-D is back on the Underworld with another monster helping him with bandages. He has a little tear in the eyes and he is angry. (Note: this panel is here to soften the tone; because no one really dies in Pepper&Carrot.)
## FIN
**End notes:** I predict this story will be cut for eight pages; it is hard to cut that one in less. The main meat of this episode is probably the introduction of the U-D and the chain reaction itself. The weak part is probably the talk between Coriander and Pepper about Chaosah; it will needs care and attention.

**Pitch** An evil force threatens the peace of Hereva. Banished to a pocket dimension this creature waits patiently for the moment to strike back at those who banished it. Now, as the moons of Hereva come into alignment it sees the moment to exit this dimensional prison and wreak havoc again upon the lands of Hereva.
**Scene 1: The moment approaches for the Underworld Dragon.**
We see a dark room of various geometric patterns. The emphasis is on darkness. No bright lights are present. Our perspective is just over the shoulder of the U-D
_Caption: Meanwhile, in a pocket dimension..._
_U-D: At last! The moons of Hereva are aligned._
Move to just over U-D's head / body. We see a small fissure open within the geometric shapes imprisoning the U-D
_U-D: There it is! The breach I have been waiting for!_
Focus on the face of the U-D; The eyes glow a dim red with fury. His face is obscured with shadows, but we can make out an ominous smile. All this time he has been in darkness and now a sliver of light appears.
_U-D: What's this? All those who imprisoned me are gathered together in this place?_
Focus over the shoulder of the U-D looking out through the breach. We see the pillars of Qualicity at night. The palace is dimly lit by torches and lanterns.
_U-D: Once this opens I shall have both my freedom and MY REVENGE!_
**Scene 2: Small Changes, Big impacts.**
Zoom on Qualicity.
We see Coriander and Pepper talking from one of the balconies. Pepper is fiddling with a skewer. Carrot is sleeping near Pepper's feet. Coriander leans on the balcony with her arms crossed. They both look out into the desert surrounding Qualicity. The breach is nowhere in sight. Coriander is on the left of the frame. Pepper stands on the right.
_Coriander: I'm glad that part is now over._
_Pepper: Right. Now you can focus on being queen._
Zoom in on Coriander's face. Her head is in her crossed arms.
_Coriander: I just feel so powerless. Who is going to listen to someone like me?_
Zoom out to show Pepper and Coriander. Coriander looks puzzled and annoyed at Pepper's statement, but a more curious annoyed look rather than rage.
_Pepper: I think I understand._
Focus on Pepper's face. She is still twirling the skewer.
_Pepper: It's kind of how my Godmothers explain Chaosah Magic and how it works._
Focus on Coriander and Pepper. Coriander is now fully puzzled. Pepper is still focusing on the skewer.
_Coriander: How so?_
_Pepper: They taught me even the smallest change can have profound impact._
Focus on Pepper. Her fingers pinch the end of the skewer. It starts to glow.
