Door in the Sky

Maya San Lucas had been lost in her dreamworld for the better part of five years. Desparia was just a fantasy world for her to explore during stretches of boredom at school and at home. Going to that world let her have adventures, exploring secret locations, and searching through towns and cities for loot to come away with. The life of a thief was so much more exciting than high school, especially with no friends to speak of.

But then the three women she met outside the tavern arrived in front of that high school. The dreamworld that she had thought was only in her head suddenly proved to be completely real. More than that, they recognized her, knew her and remembered her being there with them as they traveled through the fortress of the emperor. The only question that was fresh on their mind was how Maya had made it to that strange world ahead of them. What they should have been wondering was how they were going to get home. More than that, what would they do when their enemies came to Earth hunting for them.

Tina and Serena Montegra came into the service of The Great Tree at a young age. Growing up under the tutelage of their father, they took to her teachings well and easily. But as the emperor's troopers came to their doorstep, they left nothing but devastation in their wake. Only by the blessings of their goddess, and the training they had gotten before it, were they able to survive. Unfortunately, when you're twelve, there's not much you can do against the force of the empire.

The Mind's Door

Maya San Lucas had been lost in her dreamworld for the better part of five years. Desparia was just a fantasy world for her to explore during stretches of boredom at school and at home. Going to that world let her have adventures, exploring secret locations, and searching through towns and cities for loot to come away with. The life of a thief was so much more exciting than high school, especially with no friends to speak of.

When she met the three women outside the tavern, everything changed. While she never seemed to have much control over her daydreamed world, her skills had always been there to help her through it. But as they gradually faded, Maya was forced to tag along with the group as they stormed the fortified home of the emperor. Their plan was to kill him, but Maya just wanted to make it out of there alive. Perhaps with a few items of worth along the way. After all, what was the point in breaking into a place without coming away with some loot?

It all started so innocently, when Maya had first started going to Desparia. All she wanted out of life was not to be lost and alone as she started out in middle school. But when her father died unexpectedly, and her friends abandoned and ostracized her, the only way that she could turn was inward. Inward to the world just on the other side of her mind.

Mountain Princess

Hidden within an impassible mountain range was the small kingdom of Hilland. The crown princess, Her Royal Highness Princess Talia VI, was meant to get married to Prince Bleeker of Lolland.

But on the day of the wedding, Hilland was attacked, by Lolland. No one who was in attendance at the wedding survived. No one but Talia.

Left alone, surrounded by enemies everywhere, Talia is forced to escape her own home. She finds protection and love among her subjects, though most don't know that it is her. A royal in exile, within her own kingdom, Talia is left to pick up the pieces of her life. To find some semblance of normalcy with the enemy all around her. Knowing that most of the people, her subjects, would want her to reclaim the thrown from Lolland. Knowing that trusting the wrong person would mean her death.

The Prophecy

The village of Contranor had a strange tradition. Everyone who was born in the village would go up into the mountains to the north on their sixteenth birthday. The mountains were home to a group of mages called the Oracles. They gave each of the residents a prophecy, one that would dictate the rest of their lives. Mostly, it was who to marry or what career they would be best suited for. But everyone got one.

Everyone, but Hope. When it came to her turn, the oracles told her that she had no prophecy. Not that she had no future, just no prophecy. Instead, Hope was forced to make one up for herself, lest she look out of place among the rest of the village. But when her friends get conflicting prophecies, she's stuck trying to repair the damage that the lie had done. Not just with her family's reputation, but the friendships that her lie had strained.

With her future on hold, Hope decides to help out her friend Jack in his own prophecy. It leads them on a path outside of their quiet little village, out into the world that neither of them were prepared for. And beyond it. But none of their little band expected just where their prophecies would lead them.
