Imagine the grit that gets stuck under your nails. The kind you can't get out without running your teeth along the under side of your filthy finger. The grit then sticks in your teeth and you have a crunch that sticks with you as you eat through out the day. That's what Hel is like. They named the city as a joke. Zion was suppose to be heaven, a glowing city of lights. While Hel was for the damned souls that couldn't make it to heaven.
The cosmic joke was played well on my dark city. There are no neon lights here. The city is never graced by a ray of sunlight nor the warmth of nature. Nothing grows down here except phosphorescent mushrooms and lichen that lines the raw rock walls. There are buildings in the city, even sky scrapers. We call them earth touchers here. Once upon a time this moldering city sat above ground but now it's sunk so far below no one can even remember the names of the buildings.
The Neo-ites rarely come down from their glittering thrones unless they need something jacked. Jacking, in your terms, is hacking. A jacker will steal into your files, rip up the data they need and leave before you even notice your plasma block was breeched. Your head will be left churning as memories are erased, transactions are deleted or complete human links are severed from the main server. They can kill you digitally with one flick of a finger. Most of the Neo's who visit the Jacker's are business men. They're the government up there. They hold all the power now thanks to commercial capitalism.
I bet you're wondering how I know so much. Well humble reader I am one of these mystical Jacker's. I think you are imagining me to be one of your 21st century internet wizards. I assure you I have no neck beard nor do I play on 4chan discussing ponys in length with other grown men.
We are the Collective.
A group of jackers formed from the fallen elite. Most of us used to be Neo's but after the trials we were exiled here to pay for our crimes. Crimes the commercial government payed us to do. But that's why we're getting revenge.
What I used:
Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
Fyrinnae e/s in Sorceress (Blacked teal/green used to create a cat eye shape on the lid also rubbed along the lower lash line.)
Persephone Minerals e/s in Escort (A hooker blue applied to the inner crease.)
Black Rose Minerals in Poseidon (A sea colored green/blue blended into the upper crease.)
Fyrinnae e/s in Mischief Makers (A cool toned ivory silver to used to highlight the brow bone and inner corner of the lid.)
Wet n Wild gel eyeliner in black
Tarte Lights! Camera! Lashes mascara
Wet n Wild concealer in Ivory
Nyx lip gloss in French Kiss
I originally did a black lip with this but I ended up hating it. It was to much for a look that was based on an down trodden cyber city. I think I'm going to make this a trilogy of short stories. I have to start writing the next one but I find my inspiration is at it's peek in the early morning. Isn't that always the case? You can't sleep then you do something creative and everything is just fantastic haha.
