Fantasy lovers, this is for you! Magic doesn't work the same way in every fantasy story and can be implemented differently. I want you to come up with a system of how magic works in a fantasy setting. Simply knowing the words of an incantation can be a baseline if you want, but I'll need more details. Here are some things to cover.

1. Where/when did magic originate? Was there a certain time period or event it was traced to, or has it always existed?

2. Must people be born with magic or can anyone do it?

3. Are symbols, objects, or certain actions needed to do magic?

4. What is the source of magical power? It can be unknown or uncertain.

5. Types or classiciations of magic.

Any other relevant information including if there are schools for magic, are there restrictions on who or where it can be used, how often can it be used, etc.

The more creative and in-depth the better. Most importantly, have fun!

It is Valyn’s third winter without a partner, and the overwhelming need for sex is almost too much to bear. Until his search in an underground club leads him to an incubus named Jakai. Finally, after so long, Valyn has found the man to share his life with.

❝Fear those who look into the fire and smile❞Calida never believed in mythical creatures. To her, they were just that: myths. Beautiful yet dangerous creatures that she read about in fantasy books. She dreams of the stories her grandmother would tell her as a child, which never quite left her after she grew out of her childhood.When she meets Lucien, she thinks of his as nothing more than a pretty blond boy with captivating amber eyes who has become her sister Thea's newest flavor of the month. That is, until Thea is killed, and Calida is abducted by him.Calida is thrusted into a world that she'd only heard of in stories. She is taken to Paradise, where she learns of Lucien's people: the mythical creatures known as phoenixes, and their Phoenix Queen, who after her first thousand years, died. However, the Queen was not reborn inside her nest. For almost a decade, the Phoenixes lived with no queen. Then, they discovered Calida. Convinced by her indisputable resemblance to the Queen, they believe that she is the Queen reborn.She is treated as royalty in Paradise, and everyting is so new and peculiar. One thing she knows for sure, however, is that she is not the real queen, and a few Phoenixes know it too. However, when a new species threatens to take over Paradise, they are even more desperate for a queen to lead them, and she must step up to the throne. Mistakes will be made, as Calida is in no way fit to rule a species. However, she must be the person she is not, play the present of a past she did not live, or find the true Phoenix Queen herself.

Fantasy

Life has never been fair, not for Fay Childers; first, an orphaned human taken in by a pack of werewolves, only to be cast out when her true nature calls. Scarred by the past Fay has forged a bond and a life as an agent of the Paranormal Society, the enforcing hand of the infamous Council. At eighteen, she’s young, she’s powerful, yet treated like a ticking time bomb.

The past, unfortunately, cannot be avoided forever.

When summoned for a case she’d rather dismiss she must confront those who savagely turned her away, including the boy she’d loved. Yet nothing is as it seems; as the bond with her partner begins to implode, her own mind is tested; by a series of visions which may herald disaster, by truths which may send her down a path she’d rather avoid, by a destiny that will not be denied.

Note: New chapters are being added. These are primarily solely flashback chapters, with some occurring from the perspective of other characters in present moment. These are intended to expand the story but will not change the over all arc. As such, the numbering of chapters may be a bit confusing but ignore numbering. Order is correct. Additionally, current chapters will be polished.

Melihat orang-orang di sekitarmu mati satu demi satu sedangkan dirimu akan selamanya dipeluk erat oleh Keabadian.Siklus berulang itu membuat Sang Rubah berhenti mencintai. Tahun demi tahun mengeraskan hati dan menutup diri. Awalnya tak ada masalah dan Sang Rubah pun mulai menyukai Keabadian.Menjadi pemimpin klan nomor satu, membantu menggulingkan tahta, membesarkan pasukan kuat tak terhitung jumlahnya, menjadi pebisnis termuda, dan menguatkan pondasi lainnya. Semua itu ia lakukan agar dirinya tidak bosan dengan hidupnya.Hingga suatu hari dalam ratusan tahun hidupnya, Sang Rubah tak sengaja berbelas kasih memberi sebagian kecil dari dirinya untuk mencuri sesuatu dari genggaman Sang Maut. Sebuah tindakan bodoh yang akan selalu menjadi duri di dalam daging sepanjang sisa waktunya, sekaligus membuka kotak pandora yang mati-matian ia tutup rapat dan mengubah jalan cerita hidupnya.--(Bukan cerita terjemahan)sollaeyo©2019
