UPDATE: I am editing my first few episodes to make them longer, so don’t start reading my story UNTIL I read yours! I don’t want you guys to spend your tickets until I am done reading yours!!!
Hi guys! This is my first official story on Episode, and I am looking for constructive feedback and any suggestions you have for future episodes! If you read mine and give constructive feedback in fanmail, I will definitely read yours!
Goal of Story: I want people to realize how large-scale events can completely turn over the microcosms of student life. In my story, I explore how 9/11 devastated college students’ lives, how it impacted their families and relationships in different ways, and how it ultimately mobilized them to unite against injustice in their communities–from the perspective of the main character Priya, an Indian, Hindu, bisexual student with a Pakistani, Muslim roommate, Vardah Ali.
Title: College Days: Before and After 9/11
Style: Episode Limelight, Spotlight <-- I have chosen Spotlight because it allows readers to focus more on the dialogue and the emotions (use their imagination!), rather than focusing on the movements of the Episode cartoons.
Episodes: 3 so far, more coming soon once I get more feedback!
Description: Priya Kumar is an Indian American, Hindu, bisexual student with a Pakistani, Muslim roommate, Vardah Ali. They hit it off very well, but how will their lives change after 9/11?
