Yeah, get that. Dreams are excellent inspirations!

Thank you! (My story sounds so cool in my head but when I actually write it’s so disappointing, like a stick-figure rendition of the climatic battles in Lord of the Rings XD)
And thanks for explaining a collage, that sounds like a fun thing to try! *thinks of all the reference pic I already have and that none of them actually look like my characters! Sigh.*
Your story’s been so fun to read, I can’t wait to learn more about Esthelle and Lepaians in general!
Oh thank you! What’s your WIP about? <3
@writergirl101, those WIPs all sound like things I’d read!

@this-is-not-an-alien Yeppers, lol
Lepai is one of my own original humanoid creatures for my fantasy stories. They are one of three different types I’ve created, Wonadi and Mallea being the other two. Lepaians appear in almost every one of my fantasy stories, and use what I call the Light Magic. I’ve still been working on the Wonadi, who have the Dark Magic, and Mallea, who have more elemental magic powers.
Lepai were originally supposed to be like my replacement for fairies, but they have developed and changed so much since I first started brainstorming on them. I would talk about more stuff but I should shut up now haha XD

Nope! This is where you have to tell me all about the history of your fantasy races, their favorite foods everything you know about them <3 I like hearing new stories and histories of stories and everything that’s interesting to anybody! (:
Oi, does anybody have a snippet of conversation from their characters that just ‘says it’ about the cast?

@this-is-not-an-alien Haha okay, hmm.
Well oh goodness where do I start lol.
When it came to creating Lepai, I knew that they would be somewhat similar or at least my own replacement for fairies.
They don’t have wings, and can’t fly, but they can teleport. They can become invisible and can sense others emotions, sometimes even read their minds, depending on how strong they are in the magic.
They use a certain crystal which I also made up lol called cyrrail with strengthens their powers.
Appearance wise, they look just like humans, have red hair and blue eyes that vary slightly in exact shades. In their “true forms” they will have white or light colored swirling patterns on their face and hands called Lepaian Markings, but most Lepai hide these markings since it can be dangerous to be Lepai.
They also have their own language, and a hidden underwater city where only Lepai can live.
you still with me? XD

Hi y’all! So, I’m working currently on two fantasy novels; one focused on Irish myth and legend, the other just a random thing that sprung into my mind. I want to connect them, but not sure how exactly I’ll accomplish that… Any way, here’re the summaries:
The Realms of Ríogachadan:
In Rìogachadan, there are four realms, and each one revolves around an element, Wind, Fire, Water, or Earth. A war has been raging through the Realms for years, and it seems no one will be able to stop it. But there is a legend…
Four children, band together!
Save the world, and it’s treasures,
Rìogachadan calls for thee,
Now flock to it’s aid, and let the land sing!
One of Fire, with burning desire,
One of Earth, with strong birth,
One of Water, with hope that shineth brighter,
One of Wind, she will bring the end,
Now come together, ye children four,
And Rìogachadan restore!
Now Aithne of the Talihiki Desert (Fire), Brysa of the Frenin Plains (Wind), Terra of the Telchinor Mountains (Earth), and Thalassa of the Andellyn Sea (Water) are learning that Rìogachadan wasn’t always divided into four parts. Could they be the ones of the prophecy?
The Secret Selkie of Skyboat Lighthouse:
Aisling O’Conor believes she’s a normal girl. Except for the fact she’s mute. And the fact she lives in a lighthouse. And her mom’s dead. But, mostly a normal girl. Until the night her Aunt and Uncle come over for dinner, and secrets are spilled. Suddenly, the world of Irish Legend seems closer than ever, and it’s only the beginning. Soon, the world is crazier than it seems. And on top of it all, the ancient chest at the top of the lighthouse starts glowing. Are Irish legends real?
(not the best summaries, but I tried!)

Yes!🥰 I love how its mutated from fairylore! And the aesthetic that brings especially underwater and crystal powers so the imagery is silver and blue but their hair is red so that just adds another layer of contrast and surrealness. Thank you!
What’s the underwater city like, does it have its own customs/holidays? If I ask too many questions you don’t have to answer them XD.
Also your stories sound awesome @kylie-wingfeather tell me more! erm, pretty please? 😁

Im still brainstorming on the city, but it is a location in Esthelle’s story at some point so I guess I should get started on that.
As of now I know that it’s hidden underneath a layer of coral and rock that acts as the sea bottom. Picture a chest with a false bottom, there’s normally a hidden secret something in the secret compartment below.
there’s small openings in the coral for the people and fish and other sea creatures to go in and out.
The city is led by a prime minister.
Most Lepai are born in Udequa, which is the name of the city, and every time their hair gets wet, the water turns some of it green, like copper when it is out in the elements, for example the Statue of Liberty. When their hair dries it turns back into its original color.

I’m currently working on maybe four different things, but I’ll give you the blurbs of two of them. The first is a crime fiction, and the second a fantasy web serial.
The Mafia of Heather Flights –
Micah Radcliffe is one of the youngest and most successful businessmen in Heather Flights, CEO of the company Rose Corp. But in reality, he is just one of the many leaders of organized crime that run the underworld beneath the isolated city. However, when he refuses a deal with a mysterious drug dealer, the world which he has carefully constructed around himself begins to fall apart…
Ethan Radcliffe has always lived in his brother’s shadow. He’s fine with it; after all, he’s considered cowardly and weak by most of the people around him. But what is this wrenching feeling around his heart? Ethan thought that maybe doing something drastic would ease his burden, but now he just feels more guilty than ever. In his new position, however, and with the help of two people who shouldn’t exist, he starts seeing things in a different light…
A story of two brothers, a dying experiment, guilt and revenge, all in this isolated city of Heather Flights…
Those Who Were Given Another Yesterday –
Nine characters are trapped in a time loop. Yesterday they were friends, tomorrow they will be enemies. Today…they can only live in the present.
With memories being constantly wiped and identities exchanged with every reset, can the nine of them work together to break the loop? Or will they be forced to relive these few months of their lives forever?

@devastate-lasting Your stories sound so good! I remember reading about the Micah and Ethan one…it’s so awesome.🤩 And Time Loop thing…😍 I’ve always wanted to write a story with characters stuck in timeloops/mulitple lives.
@kylie-wingfeather Yours sound amazing. The blurb was also really good, makes me want to read the story.😍
