It’s Redder In Autumn: Chapter 1.
Summary: Just months after the passing of Moritz Stiefel and Wendla Bergmann, the ghosts still remain. After a sudden decline in Hanschen Rilow’s mentality and a boost in Ernst Robel’s spiritual connection, the two find themselves deeper into Hell than they think they’re heading for. A familiar unseen face from our original play takes a total twist from our musical mindset, and puts Hanschen and Ernst on the brink of total corruption.
Author’s notes: The German translations in this are extremely rough, so putting them into Google translate probably wouldn’t translate correctly, I know what it means, essentially (I didn’t use Google to translate it either). The year 1892 and the months came completely out of context in In The Flesh, and Hanschen and Ernst’s birthdays are totally made up (based loosely on zodiac signs [for Hanschen, at least]). There was going to be a rather disturbing and graphic part in this that I took out, and it’s replacement isn’t as descriptive so it needs to be thought about (you’ll probably know when you reach it, if not, message me, I’ll be glad to explain it!).
THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE A HORROR STORY, NOT A LOVE STORY.
Also, I once read in some article (that I can’t find again) that Hanschen would probably begin to experience the same feelings as Moritz later in his life, and I took that idea completely and put it into this, which is his POV. This also completely started as a personal thing, so lots of my thoughts are conveyed in Hanschen here too.
I’ll shut up now. Enjoy?
