For this assignment, I decided to use mermaids as my characters and put their setting somewhere deep under the sea. In my story, industrialization and the use of dark magic are destroying the under sea environment much as they have destroyed above water and the atmosphere. Two in the middle of the struggle would be Elysia, an advocate for the return to natural rule and harmony with the environment, and Adrienne, a powerful member of the ruling class of industry. In this scene, Elysia is trapped by Adrienne in a remote section of no mans land, and is subjected to dark magic. When thinking of a scene I immediately remembered no mans land from the world wars in europe and used that as my inspiration for this area. The hands coming up are supposed to represent those fallen in the crisis and how industry will eventually destroy all good.
