When a young woman shows up at the doorstep of an old Victorian house, she finds much more than she was looking for. A place to stay. A host of eccentric companions. A new city to explore. Inexplicable coincidences. Impossible possibilities. 

And maybe even a new home.

Welcome to 53 Ganymede Avenue. Enjoy your stay. And watch out for Ginger.

**Author's Note**

53 Ganymede is inspired by the Japanese genre of Iyashikei (e.g. Flying Witch, Natsume's Book of Friends, ARIA) -- it is intended to heal, soothe, and immerse. It is meant to be warm, maybe a little melancholic at times, but overall a calming experience. It is NOT a story driven by conflict and suspense, but by character interactions and atmosphere. Instead of chapters, Ganymede consists of "episodes" -- separate stories connected by setting, characters, and theme. If you're familiar with "slice-of-life," it will be a lot like that.
