An idea I can't seem to erase from my mind. My imagination is narrow yet this image keeps haunting me. A fight between prototype characters I've abandoned in the past, due to my lack of writing and passion. A question to authors that write action novels, mainly those novels that utilize fighting between characters in the form of martial arts, weaponry, or supernatural means. Do you create action novels for the sake of action or is the action just a means for your characters to complete their objective in their respective stories? I have this obsession of always wanting to see two OP characters fight each other with their surroundings casually being destroyed along the fight for death or victory. I'm currently having imaginations of opposing godlike entities fighting to the death, and the outcome leads to a draw where both forces create the multiverse as a byproduct of their powers. The overall situation then starts an eternal war between two factions, both destructive in their paths to domination, yet the former is self-destruction while the latter is destruction itself. You can imagine the cliches going on in my mind. Two shape-shifting humanoid monsters; a spiked serpent in deep black and purple, coiling together with a winged serpent in radiant white and gold. The first serpent is humanity consumed by the evil in their hearts while the second serpent is humanity transcending the human by eliminating all evil in their hearts. The dark serpent is pathos; the light serpent is logos. The former magic; the latter science. Oops, I got sidetracked. Back to the point, I'm just curious and hoping this might clear some doubts in me. Is it practical or possible to write an action novel for the sake of action? For example, like gradually raising the difficulty for both the protagonist and antagonist with their respective side characters, until the story reaches the finale which is the final battle. Is it worth writing something like this, even though I have no passion or skills in writing?
