Description

We understand the world through stories we tell ourselves, those others tell us, and those that entertain us, seeing ourselves in them even when they don’t contain people like us.

My name is Charlie, and I write Scifi/fantasy as C. E. Dorsett. As a queer writer, I dive into the deep structure of the books, movies, and shows that we love, and would love to take you with me through our fandoms and the works I create. We will dive into these worlds to reveal unseen wonder, discuss theories, and contemplate the elements of good writing. If you have any questions or topics, share them with me.

Things are changing, or at least they feel like they are. This is an interesting time to do world building a contemporary dark fantasy world set on Earth. What I decided to do I decided to set the story in the ’90s because of my own nostalgia for the goth subculture of my youth. Also I didn’t want to have to deal with the state of the world as it is now. I don’t know how to process live in the United States right now enough to write a story about it, but that doesn’t mean that current events aren’t changing the ideas going into my story world. The Outrage is not mine to appropriate Our job is not to appropriate the anger and outrage of people of color and victims of systemic racism, segregation, or of any population we do not belong to that suffered genocide. We need to adopt a tone of confession and anti-racism. We also need to be careful not to proclaim that our stores offer an absolute or ideal solution to these problems.  How do we write honestly from the POV of our characters without appropriation? I can’t write a utopia because that wouldn’t serve the story, but I can’t pretend that I have the answer to these problems.  What ever am I going to do? The real question is: how do I develop a “realistic” fantasy setting without either proclaiming that I have found a “perfect” solution or appearing to write anything into the setting that would justify the bias of the characters within the setting? The answer I came up with is to focus on making sure I am not including racist tropes in my world building that would undercut the stories and the world itself. I know I will not be perfect about this, but it is something we all need to keep a close eye on. Several good example of what I am talking about come from my beloved Harry Potter books. I am not talking about the author’s current transphobia, but the flawed analogy used in the series. Seek perfection Knowing you will never find it. I know I will make mistakes, we all will, but we cannot allow our fear of failure to keep us from working. I understand that there is a big difference between author intent and reader impact, so I am going to do everything in my power to do no harm with my work. Should I mess up, then I need to apologize and fix it in good faith. I don’t have all the answers I wish more writers would repeat that over and over to themselves. Our work is about seeking meaning in this world and finding an escape from it. Our job is not to solve the world’s problem but to search, try, and sometimes harrow the souls of our characters and give our readers a worthwhile experience. All writing is empathy. Don’t be afraid to admit that you don’t know everything. The road to hell may be paved with good intentions, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t keep a close eye on our intentions and the effect we might have on others. Fear serves no purpose other than to keep us quiet. Do your best to tell stories worth tell, ever seeking to do no harm with your tales. That is all that can be asked from any of us.If you want to support the work that I do, you can join the project on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cedorsett YouTube Channel= https://www.youtube.com/user/cedorsett/ Site: https://www.projectshadow.com Dragon's of Night: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/dragons-of-night Twitter: https://twitter.com/cedorsett Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/projectshadowsite/ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/projectshadow/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/projectshadow/support

For Camp NaNoWriMo this July, I am doing World Anvil’s World Building Summer Camp! Specifically, I am building my Dragons of Night setting (here) so I can write my new Blinded Angels series. So, what is Camp NaNoWriMo and World Building Summer Camp? What is Dragons of Night? What is Blinded Angels? I hope you are excited to work on your own project and interested to follow along with the creation of mine.

If I had a penny for every time I have been told that I am limiting my audience by writing so many Queer characters, I would be rich. I have been called out in my hometown as a race traitor for having non-white characters characters in my books… I am not trying to pat my self on the back or show my bona fides on these issues, but to explain that world is full of people trapped in their own minds. All I want is for people learn to ask themselves how much you engage with protagonists that are different from you. If you are a part of any minority, that answer is probably either “all the time” or “way too much.” If you are a cis gender, heterosexual, white male, would you answer the same way? Too many voices in fandom and society speak out anytime representation happens. No, they don’t represent the majority opinion and they are outliers, but the problem is, large and small media companies cave in to them all too often. Diversity in fiction allows more people to see and empathize with people from different backgrounds, and in so doing, we learn to empathize with everyone as human. That is what these people don’t want to have happen.  They believe that division is power. They are wrong. Unity is power. Diversity is power. It is where our real strength resides.If you want to support the work that I do, you can join the project on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cedorsett YouTube Channel= https://www.youtube.com/user/cedorsett/ Site: https://www.projectshadow.com Ash Dancer: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/ash-dancer Barrens' End: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/barrens--end Dragon's of Night: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/dragons-of-night Princess Rescue Squad: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/princess-rescue-squad Twitter: https://twitter.com/cedorsett Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/projectshadowsite/ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/projectshadow/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/projectshadow/support
The biggest lie that threatens our world is that left behind king and queens when we became democratic societies. We didn’t, we simply changed the way we named people part of the ruling class. In a democracy, we believe that the power belongs to the people. When well organized, this is true. Unfortunately, we have constructed an idea that we should elect “leaders” and then follow them. Nothing could be less democratic. A representative at best should be a Vox Populi, or voice of the people they represent. They are meant to follow their constituents not the other way around. When we examine real movements like the ones that are happening right now such as the Black Lives Matter protests for George Floyd, we are watching the entitled ruling class bristling at the mere suggestion that they should listen to much less follow the will of the people or even work for the people. We have to learn to see the through these ideas and start seeing people as coordinators, mediators, and organizers, and abandon the language of leaders and leadership. It does more harm than good.If you want to support the work that I do, you can join the project on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cedorsett YouTube Channel= https://www.youtube.com/user/cedorsett/ Site: https://www.projectshadow.com Ash Dancer: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/ash-dancer Barrens' End: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/barrens--end Dragon's of Night: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/dragons-of-night Princess Rescue Squad: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/princess-rescue-squad Twitter: https://twitter.com/cedorsett Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/projectshadowsite/ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/projectshadow/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/projectshadow/support
If you are working on your world building or wondering why your work feels unoriginal, then the problem isn’t really with your story, it is with your world building or lack thereof. Janet at World Anvil has made a great video about this (here), and they have example pages (here and here). Let’s talk about this starting point in world building.If you want to support the work that I do, you can join the project on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cedorsett YouTube Channel= https://www.youtube.com/user/cedorsett/ Site: https://www.projectshadow.com Ash Dancer: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/ash-dancer Barrens' End: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/barrens--end Dragon's of Night: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/dragons-of-night Princess Rescue Squad: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/princess-rescue-squad Twitter: https://twitter.com/cedorsett Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/projectshadowsite/ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/projectshadow/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/projectshadow/support
Whether it is the experience of People of Color, Women, or the Queer community, too many people refuse to believe stories from lives so different from our own. Why? We mistakenly believe that we see the world as it is, or understand how the world works. We don’t. We tell ourselves stories. Every new piece of information we get, every new story we encounter, we both compare to our existing narrative and weave it in, but that weaving is the problem. Other people’s stories are shaped and altered by the stories we already tell our self in order to fit them in. We have predefined shapes for those stories to take and will find a way to justify changing those stories so they work with our own meta narrative. So we don’t see the truth right before our eyes. Until we are honest about this process, we will continue to reject stories different from our own until something happens so horrible it makes us question our own stories. The solution is simple. Always question the way you see the world and be proud to grow and change as your understanding of the world develops and changes.If you want to support the work that I do, you can join the project on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cedorsett YouTube Channel= https://www.youtube.com/user/cedorsett/ Site: https://www.projectshadow.com Ash Dancer: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/ash-dancer Barrens' End: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/barrens--end Dragon's of Night: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/dragons-of-night Princess Rescue Squad: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/princess-rescue-squad Twitter: https://twitter.com/cedorsett Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/projectshadowsite/ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/projectshadow/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/projectshadow/support
With everything going on in this country, the idea of diversity has become a buzzword, and I am afraid it is a momentary meme and not something we are dedicated to. Some have finally had their eyes opened by the murder of George Floyd, but we can’t let this be the cause of the moment that we forget when the protests die down. Black Lives Matter. Diversity is not or at least should not be virtue signaling. We have to fundamentally change or all of this is for nothing. Gene Roddenberry said: “If humanity is to survive, we will have learned to take delight in the essential differences between people and between cultures. We will learn that differences in ideas and attitudes are a delight, part of life’s exciting variety, not something to fear.” That is how IDIC (Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combination) starts, but that is not the end of it. IDIC means that our strength comes from our diversity and how we come together to make the world better for everyone.If you want to support the work that I do, you can join the project on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/cedorsett YouTube Channel= https://www.youtube.com/user/cedorsett/ Site: https://www.projectshadow.com Ash Dancer: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/ash-dancer Barrens' End: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/barrens--end Dragon's of Night: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/dragons-of-night Princess Rescue Squad: https://www.worldanvil.com/w/princess-rescue-squad Twitter: https://twitter.com/cedorsett Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/projectshadowsite/ --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/projectshadow/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/projectshadow/support

I listened to this one again and wondered if you know anything about Storm Constantine, since I found some of the things she did with her Wraeththu universe pretty interesting and cool. There are significant stylistic and thematic differences between the initial trilogy published in the late 80s and the sequel trilogy published in the early 2000s, and she also published some fanworks set in the universe. I hadn't run into that level of chillness and acceptance towards fans or that much change in initial and later books in the same universe before. The change from first person to third person between the two trilogies was a big part of that. Also, magical hermaphrodites that present in pretty queer ways and supplant humanity seemed pretty rad to teenage me. Oh! and the way reproduction works in that series was interesting too. Anyway, thanks again! love the show!

I love this episode. I put off listening because I watched Alien and Aliens as a kid but haven't rewatched as an adult and have been meaning to. Anyway, this audio-dramatization sounds super cool! What's weird is that I actually had a dream as a teen where aliens very similar to those shown in Alien were around on a slightly future or AU earth and were essentially contagious. It was revealed later on in the dream that the conditions caused by the Aliens and the spread of the Alien transformations in humanity were spearheaded and manipulated all along by governmental and corporate powers. Anyway, I thought that was funny, given the plot of this possible other Alien 3 film(genetically driven Alien transformation and cyberpunk bits). Thank you for your podcasts, as always, but the subject matter and enthusiasm in this one made it a really good fit for me.

I'm with you in the extended sand-trout conversation zone. Dune is super fascinating. I am similarly skeptical of this prequel series being anything even close to the vein of what made the Dune books that I got through so great. We'll see, I guess! I'm also not convinced that filmed media can adapt it properly in general BUT I did read that before Star Wars came out and changed the special effects game that adapting Dune as an anime was something that was discussed. I Want That Anime. Limited series style. i want those facial expression closeups and long establishing shots of various landscapes on Dune and some mind bending visual interpretations of what it might be like to sense the fabric of time. I also want the Hayao Miyazaki adaptation of Pippi Longstocking that fell through, but alas, some things just don't come together.

I like this a lot. Returning to and transforming a previous work to make it more your own or more current to the truths and skills that you've been able to unfold since the initial exploration is something that I wish were more of a thing. It has become a bit more common in the visual arts community, and I think that the value has really proven itself there. I hope that other creative people (and even more visual artists, honestly) try this practice. Cool episode.

Exciting! I hope the new format will make it easier and better moving forward for you and the community you've been making space for and nurturing. As for tuesday/wed/thurs suggestions: more regarding the netflix live-action Sabrina would be great! Also, maybe you you could talk about more of the Dark Crystal backstory that wasn't covered in the films? and Dune. Also, thanks for the shout out. I'm not as obsessed with theory episodes as I perhaps made it seem! Theory, recap, worldbuilding, deep dives, anything with heavy emphasis on exploring context and implications is my jam. It all sounds awesome and I'm excited to see where it goes.
