    Summary

    The royal family of the Antarctic Empire was said to have magic- control over the ice and snow that makes up their land. It allowed them to survive the deadly cold and the whiteout snowstorms. It meant they were strong enough to rule. It meant they were blessed by the gods.

    Too bad they were cursed as well.

    Or: The royal family of the Antarctic Empire doesn't have it easy. But they do have a few things going for them: magic, and a bond nothing- not even the gods that look upon them so cruelly- can break.

    Summary

    “Who are you?” he stammers, frowning.

    Fundy sits down, the tip of his tail flicking back and forth cautiously. “A few locals. What about yourself?”

    The boy’s mouth quivers, his eyes widening. He looks down. Words almost from on the top of his tongue but all that comes out are halted stutters. His hands tremble; he lifts them in front of his face, his gaze flicking over each digit and both palms.

    “I...” he murmurs, “...I don’t know.”

    In a valley of spirits, a mysterious boy appears. He isn’t from the groundland, but rather the stars. Strangely though, he has no memories from before he fell out of the sky. Taken in by the valley’s guardian spirit Phil, it soon becomes clear that the boy isn’t safe. The stars are after him and they want to take him home, where their magic will force him to forget not only his time on the ground but also his new friends and family.

    Summary

    Awsten wakes in the middle of a bad episode of sleep paralysis, worse than any he's had before. As he shakes off the nightmarish visions, he quickly discovers his surroundings are not what they seem. He doesn't know why all of his friends have all stayed over at his house, or how the rest of his neighborhood has seemed to vanish without a trace. Most disturbingly, he can't remember the events of the night before. The only clues he has are the vague memories from the day of and a video of a newly discovered tomb deep in Houston's state park woods, that they may or may not have investigated in the dead of night. As his surroundings grow stranger and stranger, Awsten begins to wonder if he's losing his mind...or did they finally disrupt a spirit so sinister, so malevolent, that it changed Awsten's very existence on Earth forever...

    Summary

    "How are you feeling?"
    "Uh, I dunno. Relaxed, I guess? Kinda itchy?"
    "No. Tell me in colours."

    Awsten sits up, glancing over at Geoff like he just asked for Awsten's firstborn. "The fuck?"

    Summary

    Do you ever wish you could tell yourself to shut up so that you don't ruin a first impression?

    Well, Awsten takes that to the extreme.
