NaNoWriMo 2016

Jacqueline Law is the daughter of an esteemed merchant, Tomas Law, a wealthy widower. Her mother raised her as a lady, but after her passing Thomas raised her as a sailor, teaching her how to work a ship instead of how to win a soldier's heart. He wants only what's best for his daughter.

She was as happy as she could ever be, sailing with her father all over the Caribbean. And during those years, Jacqueline Law becomes learned. She can do math, and speak in a number of languages. She knows cultures and traditions, and how to move in a dress- not that she hopes she'll ever use the latter. But she can also captain a ship, beat any man in the rigging, and fight as good and dirty as any pirate. And so she gets a life of peace and plenty on the Courage.

And then it all broke.

The Courageis attacked by the ​Buccaneer's Rift, pirates, and Thomas is killed defending his goods and his daughter. Jacqueline and the few survivers are given a rowboat and a map to the nearest port. Leaving Jackie Law with her tears and a thirst for revenge on the pirates who murdered her father.

This is Jackie Law's story of revenge, adventure, danger, and love. All in the search to make a life for herself; a life she'll have to fight for.

Travis always wanted to try his hand at writing a novel. He had tried to write a couple, but never felt motivated enough to finish them.

By a chance encounter, he comes to know of a writing contest called NaNoWriMo, where participants have to write a novel in one month. Thinking that the deadline (and the fact that it is a contest) will motivate him to write a complete novel, he decides to sign up.

Will Travis be able to complete his novel this time around? And what adventures await him on his journey?

Probably the only novel on NanoWriMo that you'll (n)ever read.

As most of you must have guessed, I got this idea while thinking to come up with a theme for my NaNoWriMo 2016 entry.

War
Tragedy

The prince does not ask for his crown. The damsel does not need to be rescued. The king does not rule from his throne. The princess does not want a prince charming. The pirate does not enjoy his plunder. The assassin does not kill out of bloodlust.

Seek neither a crown nor a war, for Captain Kilyan knows not what he is in for.

{ a Legend of Luven // the Corrupt Crown Chronicles, book one }

{ r e m a r k s }

Yes, this story will eventually return, hopefully by the end of 2018. However, it is not the same as it was before. I have changed names and certain details because I want this story to be as strong as I possibly can make it. If you've read an earlier version, I hope you think this one improves upon the last greatly. If you're new to this story, welcome. I hope I do not disappoint.

Dystopia

It's 55555 AD, and Canidice Pint is one of the few young adults left in the compound. The Human Race's numbers have gone down to shocking numbers due to radiation poisoning and warfare, and Canidice's generation has the lowest count yet. There are 151 of them, and she's one of them. One of 151, 1 of 22 young women. Her 22nd birthday is approaching, and with it, an onslaught of attention from most of the 129 young male adults, and some of the girls too. There's no law saying she has to marry, and in fact she doesn't even want kids, but the pressure of society forces her to do something no one has done in centuries. She leaves the compound, and something even worse happens. The rest of the 151 start to follow her once they realize it's safe on the outside after over 2000 years. Some of them leave in search of their friend who's been spiraling into the abyss of insanity for years, some in search of the girl they might marry, some in search of a new chance at life. With only a week's head start and a single message in the sky as warning, Canidice must evade her soon to be captors while figuring out how to survive in a hostile environment to gain what no one has had for so long. Freedom.

This is not a 50,000 word story. My only goal is to finish it. ;)

Still mentally planning, so if you find this, please stay tuned~

I have recalled the story idea now!!

It's gonna be another LGBT+ one, just to warn you. :)

Plus, I may or may not change the title. I'm not very happy with this one.

Okay! Here goes...

I am not going to explain myself. No, I won't; I'll leave my personal information out for you to discover later. It's more fun that way, don't you think?

One thing I will tell you, though - my name is Hurricane. I am an assassin.
