This is not a full story. This is a dumping ground for a bunch of random disconnected stuff that I started working on years ago and never finished.
The first novel I ever wrote was called "Tommy." It was the first of three books in what I decided to call "The Timepiece Chronicles." Then I decided to call the first book "Changeling." Then I decided to call the SERIES "Changelings," and the first book "Tommy" again. And since the entire series was written during various NaNoWriMos and was terrible, I decided the whole thing needed a rewrite and began rewriting it here. And then I didn't finish.
Even though the story never got beyond its (terrible) first draft, I actually have a LOT of writing on it. So while I started this Wattpad book as a rewrite of Tommy, I'll be using it from now on as a dumping ground for excerpts, drafts, sources, etc.
Here's a couple of the original summaries of this story:
A fairy has made friends with a human boy. When she gets kidnapped by Iron-fey, the boy sets out to find her, setting off a whole chain of events that involves the unlikeliest people.
There are fairies who haunt the dark hidden streets of the city, committing quiet murders and taking children from their homes. Antala has always known how to avoid them. She is the messenger between the worlds of Faerie and Iron, and despite the danger of her job and her own fascination with the poisonous world, she has been able to keep herself safe.
She has been kidnapped by these Iron Fey, and nobody knows where to find her. The only person to set out and look for her is a five-year-old human boy she befriended. And this boy, stumbling innocently through the unknown, is soon to become pivotal in the eons-old battle between the worlds of Faerie and Iron themselves.
