Featured Plot: Fore-Shadows of the Apocalypse


"Most people are blind to magic. They move through a blank and empty world. They’re bored with their lives, and there’s nothing they can do about it. They’re eaten alive by longing, and they’re dead before they die."

"I like the night. Without the dark, we'd never see the stars."

"Becoming me was the greatest creative project of my life."

"What if I'm not a superhero.
What if I'm the bad guy?"

"Are you terrified? You should be."

"I want to be the one. But it's the adult part of me, the part that really understands how magic works, that tells me it's you."

"This new-found heroism is making me
very attracted to you."
