The Healing Gift -Synopsis-
In a world where the main classes are all about summoning, fortune-telling, and magic; where a letter in your name can mean the difference between success and failure and healing is considered the greatest gift amongst all the pain, some fight to survive.
Zan, a girl in her 12th year, struggles to live. People around her hate her just because of her name and title. Her powerful gift does nothing to help that, but gives nothing to defend herself with. And with her power, a mysterious force is at work, plaguing her conscience, forcing her to the brink.
She has to succeed, her life depends on it. But how can she when everything seems set against her?
NaNoWriMo Synopsis: Iris Sunset
Iris Sunset represents the story of Iris' inner struggle to stay sane and live a normal life after a series of unfortunate events. She's a troubled teenager whose life is more than what a 17 years old can normally handle.
The story begins when she meets with a mysterious school mate, Aeneas, but the true trial for her sanity starts when she witnesses the death of Andreas, her ex-boyfriend who still was a strong presence in her life. She is tormented by the guilt of not saving him and she blames herself for his death.
Things will get even more complicated when she starts realizing she's falling in love with Aeneas, the one who protected her after Andreas' death. The inner struggle gets so intense that she's on the edge of losing contact with the real world.
She has her best
