Here are two different stories I had started sometime ago before meeting all of you. Sadly both are lost to me, maybe for good as the laptop they were written on broke. Up till now I had not thought of starting again. Instead I have used concepts from both of them to help write my fanfic. But now I take it all back and will start again.
I will most likely write or at least try to write both stories. But I wondered, which one should I do 1st?
I will give some info on each. It will be simplistic at best. Bear with me and please give me your opinions. It could be that neither story is worth while. :D
Thanks you for your time and help my dearly beloved friends.
Story number one.
A young girl of 10 or 11 years, a princess living in the Byzantine era.
She has 7 older brothers. Both parents. In the court and scattered in different areas of the country, a mysterious but noble group of magicians called the Magi. Brothers and father are part of this. All are good and kind people.
Brothers and father are away. She goes on an outing to the countryside with her lady attendants. While relaxing, they are attacked by the Ottomans. Guards are killed. Girl is kidnapped. Only head lady attendant survives attack to tell family the news. Grieved and enraged they go on a hunt to find her. They never do.
Girl is sold to a rival kingdom where she is apprenticed to a malevolent court official, a dark magician. She is treated cruelly and taught dark magic. In a few years time she is introduced to the prince of that kingdom and set to wed him in a few years. She is used to lead a war against her own country and overthrows her fathers rule. She does not kill him or her brothers though. She has them put in jail. For a brief period she rules the country and is heartless and cruel. She is about 15 years at this time. I would say she is a bit of a puppet ruler.
He brothers and father escape and at the same time the citizens revolt. She flees but is captured and brought back in shame to be put on trial. She is sentenced to death much to the heartbreak of her family. Girl is still unrepentant. Head magi steps forward and finds a solution.
Magic is used and she is sentenced to be trapped as a living stature. She can not move, talk, smell or eat. But she can see and here. She will remain in this state till she is humbled and repentant.
A thousand years go by. She has drifted off in a slumber for most of it. At the end of a thousand years she is released from her prison. She finds herself in
. She is not the same evil person, is still 15 years old in appearance and mind. Through different adventures she finds some friends, people who help to reshape her very soul. She finds that the age old war between good and evil are still being fought for and that her very soul is still a prize sought after by both. There are the guardians, the Magi who are still around, hidden, fighting to right the wrongs of their enemies. (Brothers are part of this, immortal now)Girl will have to choose which side she will be on. London
2nd story. I was influenced by a number of things with this one.
It is a story of a young girl being raised in a foster family. She does not know why, but she is told she most hide her identity and dresses as a boy. Her foster family is very kind though there is a bit of rivalry with her slightly older foster sister.
The setting is in an alternate world much like our own in a simpler time. It is like the era of the French Revolution though not has poverty stricken.
Above, in the skies are beautiful floating cities that are sometimes seen. The royals and nobles live here.
The main character Serafina, (Finn for short because of her hidden identity)looks up and sees the young nobles playing in the sky as they ride skillfully on their sky boards (like skateboards, only in the sky) :P
Two of the main floating cities are coming together because of a royal wedding. But below the lovely lifestyle of the royals, on the earth a revolt is being planed. One that started over a hundred years ago but was stopped short for a time. Now it is starting again. Mysterious beings are destroying small towns on the outskirts of the country. The peace that has been there in the country is being threatened by the rumor of a war. The lost heir, to the throne, a girl, is being sought after by the minions of darkness. The poor and underprivileged began to rise up against the nobles who float so carelessly above.
Finn finds that she gets caught up in these events in a rather strange way.
