They say the world used to turn. They say that night would follow day in an endless dance. They say that dawn rose, dusk fell, and we worshiped both sun and stars. 

That was a long time ago. 

The dance has died. The world has fallen still. We float through the heavens, one half always in light, one half always in shadow. Like the moth of our forests, one wing white and the other black, we are torn. 

My people are the fortunate. We live in daylight, blessed in the warmth of the sun. Yet across the line, the others lurk in eternal night, afraid... and alone in the dark. 

I was born in the light. I was sent into darkness. This is my story.

Bloody red as a descriptor here creates a nice instance of foreshadowing, I like it

I love fhe mix of soct sci-fi & fantasy elements. The no longer rotating Earth. Which, in a sci fi would never work. But it works perfectly in this genre blend
                               Another example of your wonderful use of sci-fi combined with fantasy is Torin's eight ball fracture.
If there is sunlight everytime, isn't the land supposed to be dry. Absence and excess of light can cause glitches.

When I think of the Elorians, I imagine the parademons from DCEU. That looks epic!
