Ink & Mirrors
The society we know doesn't exist.
Science has become the sun of society, and mankind has greatly advanced in technology and the sciences. Mankind has reached the peak of technological advancement, and it's almost like there's nothing left to strive for.
But development hasn't been without cost.
Literature and the creative arts have become a faded memory that society insists is best forgotten. Religion, all religions, have gone underground after society has decided that it doesn't follow along with the required lifestyle of scientific advancement. As forceful as the world is when enforcing the negative view of religion, fiction, and free expression on citizens, these elements present themselves in new, and possibly more frightening ways- as living beings.
Chaoslings, an enigmatic and powered humanoid race, have terrorized Earth's utopia of science since the technological peak a century ago. They've destroyed entire buildings, cities, and human lives. They're monsters. Pandetta Fan thought the same until she realized she had more in common with the monsters than her own kind. With two worlds now pressing for her devotion through one life-changing event after another, she has to choose: be swept in the flow of the world or fight the current.

The strange girl bent closer to her startled companion and whispered softly, "All the most creative people are."|
