I’m currently writing/planning nineteen different works. I have a problem. Here are some amateur-ish synopses:
David Banewood is just your typical teenage boy. All he wants to do is do his job and live a peaceful existence of hunting down the savage demons that invade our world every now and then and maybe find a nice boy to settle down and spend his time with. Unfortunately, there are a few things which make this difficult, first and foremost of these being David’s older brother, and former best friend, Alexander. Alex has been antagonising David ever since he came out to him, and now their relationship has essentially devolved into a constant exchange of insults. What’s more, demon attacks are on the rise, and a shadow from the past may have returned to plague the world once more. Soon David is thrown into an epic quest across dimensions, encountering goblins, faeries and demons as he is thrown into an all-out war which will decide the fate of the world.
Subject Alec Matthew Roberts is a prisoner at Abnormal Detainment Facility 7. What does that mean? He’s not quite sure. But if Alec is to believe the claims of his cellmate, Luke Winter, then it means that he’s a superhero… or something like that. Apparently some time ago, human kids began to develop strange powers which scared the government into hunting down the powered children and locking them away and performing cruel experiments on them. Luke has been at Facility 7 since he was ten years old; Alec has somehow reached sixteen without the slightest indication of his special abilities. But one thing’s for sure, Alec isn’t just going to take being a lab-rat lying down, and the mysterious and enigmatic Callum Reyes may hold the key to Alec’s, and everyone else’s freedom.
The incubus thing
You know when people tell you a love story or you read one and then you’re just like “aww, that was adorable!” Well this… this isn’t that. My name’s Kosume, and I’m an incubus. If you don’t know what that means, then basically think of me as a vampire, except instead of blood, I drain souls. I have to do it if I want to survive, and boy do I want that. I don’t really feel bad about all the people I’ve killed, it is my nature, and besides that, I can’t even control it. If you’re intimate with me, and I’m attracted to you, then you will die. At least, I never felt bad about it until I met Jasper Scott. An average name for the most non-average guy. I just wanted to sucker him in, eat his soul, and move on like I always do, but I made a mistake and for the first time in my life, I think I’d rather die than kill.
The Great Game
In the land of Terludum there are two kingdoms; the kingdom of Aquilos and the kingdom of Dracoia, ruled over by the god-kings Aroin, the King of Eagles, and Pyrias, the King of Dragons. Despite what you might think, the gods are not enemies and instead enjoy a friendly rivalry.
For decades the two gods have played a game. The rules of this game are very simple; each kingdom must send out a team of eight teenagers to cross the land that separates the two kingdoms and reach the rival king’s castle. The game is only won if all eight players of one team reach the opposing castle alive.
Since its inception, the game has never been won.
Kai, the prince of dragons is determined to change that. But first he needs to enter the game and make sure he is chosen to compete, which, for a prince, is no easy task.
The Shadow Houses
Kit is an average teenager living in an average town.
Ethan is Kit’s ex-boyfriend with a mysterious past.
Link is the intriguing stranger who knows more than he’s telling.
When people start disappearing, the three of them must team up to solve the mystery and Kit’s world gets turned upside down as Link and Ethan lead him into a world of secrets and shadows. Nothing will ever be the same again.
War in Erede
Karan’s home country, Erede was invaded by the neighbouring country of Pithen. The Pithenites quickly took several cities, including Karan’s home city of Tormelia. Fearing for their safety, many Eredians fled across the Great Void - an enormous, unfathomably deep scar in the world - to the isolated continent of Vorend, where they would take sanctuary until the war was over. It has been four years since then, and it seems the war is no closer to ending. Now Karan works shifts at a tavern called The Shattered Flagon, and takes sword-fighting lessons in his spare time, all the while trying to ignore the hatred the Vorendians have for immigrants like him. Karan’s best friend Viri is a student at the Acad Magis, a school for people born with the rare ability to use magic, and, as such, is of a much higher class than Karan, as is constantly drilled into him by everyone he knows. When prominent figures in the Vorendian government start getting assassinated, just as Viri starts to indicate that he wants to be more than a friend to Karan, the Vorendian people turn even more violent towards the Eredian refugees. As Karan struggles to make sense of the chaos, the excellent new student at Karan’s fighting class, the handsome Ren, offers to give Karan the additional tutelage which he sorely needs. As the assassinations continue, hatred of foreigners mounts to an overwhelming crescendo, and everything Karan has worked so hard to achieve, and his life itself, is in serious danger.
The Prince of Chassadra
Chassadra is a rather small, out of the way planet with little power or wealth. They have very few rare natural resources which they can trade with other planets. As a result, the planet is steadily losing what little influence and wealth it has. Queen Lani Setorai of the Chassadrians wishes to save the planet through a marriage alliance with the people of the planet Cirn. Unfortunately Prince Dalkir has no interest in women and is determined to do whatever it takes to ruin his chances of a marriage with the Cirni princess.
The Silver Blood
Long ago, the Maldred terrorised the world. A fearsome and savage creature, the Maldred possessed a rare magic known as the Silver Blood - those blessed with this power can only be truly killed by another of the Silver Blood. The Great Witch, Seshea, and her coven managed to seal the Maldred away with an enchantment, but no spell lasts forever and soon the Maldred will break free. Alwyn Idrisson is a gentle boy with a gentle heart who never wanted to hurt anyone, but soon it is discovered that he possesses the magic of the Silver Blood. There’s only one problem; boys are not allowed to do magic.
King Adrian has not made any public appearances in two years. There are constantly rumours circulating about him - he’s ill, he’s dead, he’s abdicated the throne, he doesn’t care about his subjects, he’s a puppet for a stronger force - you name it, there’s probably even a rumour that he’s secretly an alien overlord. What they don’t know is that Adrian walks among them. He hasn’t felt like a king in a while, but it still hurts to hear what people think of him. Something bad happened two years ago, and now Adrian lives alone with only his cat for company. But maybe that’s about to change.
There’s the world you know, and then there’s the Underneath, a secret world where just about every myth or tale is a stark reality. Caelan has known about the Underneath for about as long as he can remember, after a chance discovery when he was five years old. Now an apprentice at the wizard Mordenan’s library, Caelan spends most of his time in the Underneath, away from his disapproving father, stacking shelves and practicing magic with his best friend, a water spirit named Nepti, in his spare time. But when Mordenan stumbles across Kier, the only other human to enter the Underneath in decades, Nepti is certain that Kier’s presence will bring them nothing but trouble. When a dark force attacks Mordenan’s library, they are forced to believe Nepti’s warning. Kier has to disappear, and Caelan’s the only one volunteering to make that happen. If Caelan can find out what it is that makes Kier a target, then maybe they can figure out what to do next. Unfortunately, Kier has no memory of his life on the surface.
One Night in October
The MC is 18 and has spent a load of effort on making their costume for a Halloween party. At the party he meets another guy with a similarly amazing costume. Spooky happenings ensue. There’s a murder, a chase, a maze and a key to a secret kept buried for a long time. It’s going to be one hell of a night. Yes the entire story takes place over one Halloween night.
The key thing
Aidan’s ordinary life was fine until an old man accosted him in the street and handed him a small silver key. But after narrowly avoiding being shot and blown up, Aidan has to conclude that this key is nothing but trouble. But try as he might, Aidan can’t seem to lose the key. He even threw it in a sewer and yet it turned up, perfectly dry, in his pocket. Forced to go on the run for reasons he doesn’t understand, Aidan is done for. That is, until he meets Theo. Theo has been tasked by his master with protecting the key and bringing it to him. And since Theo doesn’t want to kill Aidan, he acts as his guard and guide, shepherding him towards his mysterious master, and, perhaps, whatever it is that the key unlocks.
Feud of Vandon
A Romeo and Juliet retelling except gay, and set in an English-like fantasy world with magic and human sacrifice. Also the whole thing of meeting for like a day and then killing themselves doesn’t happen. The main characters are Roland Margrave and Julian Chadwick. The Margraves and the Chadwicks are rival sorcerer families.
Jake and Aaron
Jake Parrish is the abused gay son of a deeply religious family. Aaron Bishop is his closeted boyfriend and son of an equally religious father. When Jake’s parents decide to send Jake away to a conversion camp, that’s the final straw. Jake runs away from home, fleeing to the north, and leaving Aaron to track him down. There’s hitchhiking, drag queens, grotty motels, and copious amounts of drugs.
The blind thing
Eli, the main character, is blind. He meets this dude called Nathan at a bar. They get together. It turns out Nathan is a fairly famous Youtuber. And that’s all I’ve got so far.
The video game thing
The reclusive genius game developer, Ishikawa Tatsuya completes his work on his magnum opus and basically gives out an open invitation to fly to Tokyo to engage in the competition to beat the game - the only time it will ever be available to the public. One of the people who manages to do this is Dante Santana, an avid follower of Ishikawa’s work. In Tokyo he meets River Newman, a cocky and aggravating English boy, and Ishikawa Hideo, Tatsuya’s equally brilliant and extremely attractive son. Something goes wrong in the game however, a Hacker starts making the contestants’ lives hell, and outside the game in the real world, one by one, the participants are steadily disappearing. Can Dante overcome all odds, evade the Hacker, avoid being kidnapped, maybe get a smooch from Hideo and win the game?
Fairy tale thing
A fairy tale retelling combining elements of Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and The Little Mermaid (in the first book at least, later books add Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, The Goblin Market, Rumplestiltskin, Jack the Giant-Slayer, Rapunzel and Beauty and the Beast). It is Prince Dorian of Alador’s eighteenth birthday, and as such King Artus and Queen Mallory are holding a ball in his honour (and also to find him a suitable wife). Cin Dorelle, the only son of the late Lord Dorelle, has a massive crush on Dorian and sees his chance when he receives an invitation to the ball. Unfortunately, Cin lives under the thumb of his wicked stepmother, Lady Cassandra, and does not possess the means to attend the ball. So his friend, Roan of Grimwold hatches a plan to smuggle him the greatest fineries, hand-crafted by Roan’s renowned grandmother, who lives in a small village on the other side of the Black Forest from Kingstead - the central city of the kingdom of Alador. On one of his treks through the forest, Roan mistimes his journey and ends up lost in the wolf-infested forest at night. He is offered sanctuary by the mysterious hunter, Faolan, and the two begin to become friends. Meanwhile, Prince Erik of the northern kingdom is travelling to Alador as a representative of his land for the ball, when he finds a small, naked boy washed up on a beach. He soon learns that the boy is Ari, last prince of the mer-kingdom, and his voice was stolen by an evil witch. Even though he’s a “barbarian,” Erik can’t justify leaving Ari on his own so he takes him along for the ride. At the same time, something weird is going on at the palace, as Queen Mallory is holding clandestine meetings with a mysterious figure. Snow, the bastard son of King Artus, who Mallory hardcore hates, resolves to solve this mystery, mostly out of boredom.
Bounty hunter thing
Fish people, sea serpents and gayness.
