There is a disorder in the world called Dissociative Personality Disorder. In simple terms, this is when someone(the host) creates personalities(alters) which exist in that person's head, completely seperate from the host. These alters can take over the host's body if they wish, talk to the host, store the host's memories for them, and even talk amidst themselves. June exists as one of these alters, with a woman named Joy her host, but things aren't what they appear. Life has been stolen, memories repressed, and June fight to become a human being. But what is normal when you don't technically exist? Can she obtain normality without killing off her supporting alters, or integrate them, as the psychologists call it to soften the blow. Or will she be lost once again to the abyss that is the mind?

@Troy318 Well, as The Son and the Sparrow was formally known as An Angel of Death, I'm sorry to say I decided on the other one.

Brilliant. I don't know how you keep everyone straight. I had to read it twice to make sure I got it right lol. Did you decide to keep working on this one or the other one you mentioned (please say this one) I have a selfish motive for asking.
