Penumbra - a space of partial illumination (as in an eclipse) between the perfect shadow on all sides and the full light beyond.
These are the worlds where opposites collide,
light and shadow,
pain and hope,
love and hate,
female and male,
two sides of the same coin,
with nothing in between.

Your choice: Bitter or BETTER

Hello friends,
Mama Magie here. A post-stroke mom who writes as part of my recovery. These are my more serious scribbles when I am not writing fantasy with my minionettes. This page and the stories here are ALL for a more mature audience, a walk between shadow and light. There will be triggers for those of us who are survivors. Some of the beginnings, middles, and endings are not what I would wish on anyone or to be done by anyone. But sadly, these are the truths of many.
Reality turned to fiction as a coping mechanism. Some are my own, some belong to others. Some will overcome, others will succumb. It is the way of the world, and for some, the happiest outcome is simply an ending.
I do not advocate suicide or self harm, denial or self-medication. I encourage all to seek help, even if it lies with a stranger through pixels and photons. We are all sisters and brothers. We all have choices in a world that teaches we are objects. Weep, cope, reach out. You are not alone. You do not deserve to suffer.
Become BETTER, not Bitter.

Quote: I don't fear monsters or demons, vampires or werewolves. I fear what real people do to real people.

Due to recent data thefts made by unauthorized sites against the writers of Wattpad, I am shifting many chapters of my stories to Private settings. To read them, please FOLLOW. Sorry for the inconvenience but these sites are often filled with viruses/malware. I do not wish for anyone's device to be damaged by such malevolent and dishonest people because they were reading. I write for enjoyment and it pains me that someone would use what I love to cause harm. Thank you for understanding, Mama Magie.
