    Summary

    Twelve-year old Gaara was one of the very many people that moved to the city during the time of urbanization. For three months, his family lived in a very filthy apartment with only one chamber pot for a toilet, and worked very long hours in either a factory or a coal mine with very little breaks. The working and living conditions were very unbearable and dangerous, and disease was often spread. This is the story of Gaara, a boy so desperate to prove himself that he was willing to give up his life in the process of showing that he could do what his siblings thought he couldn't do…

    Summary

    On a peninsula called Genosha, there were four countries existing co-operatively.

    The youngest of the four rulers, King Erik, suffered the shame of not manifesting his expected hereditary power of magnetism and metallokinesis, a disadvantage in a country of skilled and vicious warriorship. The curse that bound his powers could be broken with love, but Erik could not remember a time when he didn’t love the Crown Prince of Corazon, Charles Xavier. He and Charles were both sole heirs; their duty to reproduce should outweigh personal desire, both for each other and for relief from the curses that pained them.

    Charles was telepathic. His country however, shunned magic, put all their faith in religion and science. So he hid his gifts and he resigned himself to the loneliness of secrets kept and a loveless marriage.

    The King and the Prince had choices to make and, with each of their options bound to hurt someone, it seemed their own wishes must give way to the greater good.

    Summary

    Shinganshina was a tough district in the 1920s. Families lived in cramped, insalubrious apartment stacked over each other in tall towers. The infant mortality was quite high so the families had not to bother to feed dozens of mouths which was a blessing in its way since the taxes were bone crushing high. Most people worked at the neighbouring factories under precarious conditions. Mortal accidents were part of the daily routine for adults and children. For the unlucky ones whom parents had died and couldn't afford the city life any more, they were left to fend on their own until the day they would meet their fate in the dirty streets of Shinganshina.

    Summary

    It was an understatement to say that the Magical Restriction Laws caused unrest and outrage when they were passed by the Craftian government several years ago. But the creation of the Magic Police and their strict enforcement of the new laws reduced the rioting to nothing. The Undesirables have been locked away, and members of that special force have moved on to other departments and positions. All but two, that is.

    There is little need for the Magic Police now.

    Unless the mysterious figure who attacks people in the night and leaves them dizzy with blood loss is actually practicing one of the forbidden dark magics prohibited by the law. The city is full of people weaving the stories of their lives, and not all intentions are good, especially when the police are distracted.
