Without further ado: Welcome to the plot!

Week 3: Slice of Life (or Death)

Cosmic Fish – Acantha and her kind are monsters called “ghosts”. They aren’t part of the “life cycle”, where every living soul filters through two planetary guardians. As the different ghosts and monsters change — both emotionally and physically — they attempt find the answers behind the mystery of their existence, and either heal or run from past mistakes.

Fine Sometimes Rain – A slice of life about love, friendship, and overcoming depression.

Evil Witch Allie – Jake found a little girl claiming to be a witch wandering alone outside his house on Halloween. It would have been nice if that turned out to be the weirdest part of his night.

Paisley Brickstone – Being the new kid is never easy, but life gets even harder for Harvey Mammaroth when gym class takes a wild turn and he and his classmates find themselves trapped in an empty school. Is the whole thing just a vague assignment set up by their sadistic gym teacher, Coach Trener? Or is something much darker going on?

October 20 – After a decade of fighting the curse that has befallen them, Catherine and Raimundo have their backs to the wall. The last of their allies have been claimed by the monster that comes for them every year on October the 20th. Can they survive the day? Can they find a way to go on, even if they lose everything? And can they find the man called Shields McKloskey, who seems to hold all the answers?

    Oooh, interesting. “By your powers combined, I am Captain Planet!”?

  • Kryspix

    urge to start yelling ‘Crawling in my Skin’…rising…

  • Aren’t you going to hazard a guess before asking what’s happening?

    • A few days after I wrote this, I realised that I quoted Sorkiu.

  • Dim Light

    That looks like it hurts…. Also I might need to re-check how many stones and what color each of ’em had in their hands, it seems. I am totally crossing my fingers for color-based magic powers appearing!! 😀

    • So many colours, so much potential!

    • N0083rP00F

      I counted 8 total so it can’t be ROYGBIV and the colour wheel is only 6 RGB+MYC.
      Well unless there is a black and white we didn’t see.

  • Cvetan Zainelov

    o my, that surely is painful and unexpected, i thought that those diamonds were equivalent of magic shield blocking and reflecting attacks, but this ? i hope that the next page comes earlier.

    • 🙂 Oh this mystery will take more than a page or two to unravel, that’s for sure! I’m so glad you’re enjoying the story so far!

  • Kat

    I must admit, I wasn’t expecting THAT
    (also ouch, that looked like it hurt :S)

    • 🙂 Oho! Good! Also, thanks!

  • WitUnderPressure

    I’m reminded of that scene in “The Mummy” (with Brendan Fraser) with the scarab.

    • Aaagh! What a freaky scene! I’m glad the diamond don’t have legs. Hahaha!

  • Erynn On Cue

    this reminds me of the piece of graphite i’ve had stuck in my hand since an incident with a pencil in elementary school. by that i mean it actually looks kinda like it, although definitely much bigger XD

    • Ooooh ouch! I remember that happening to classmates of mine too. Not fun :S

    • Zarel

      Holy shit!!?? You too??!! In Elementary a girl decided she wanted to play doctor and jabbed me with a mechanical pencil! I’ve had the mark on my wrist since!

  • Issatrav

    Huh. Somehow I don’t think he’s getting those gems back.

  • Scottygroundhog

    ha ha
