I am looking for a co-author on a story that has been plaguing me for quite some time, but I am unable to give it justice. The story is 100% fiction. It is placed in a world where magic (no not like harry potter, no wands) are the defining elements in your social rank. Each year there is a test to decide who is the most powerful, once you prove you have the strongest energy (magic) you rule for 1000 years, as preset by Mother Magic (the original ruler). If you die before your time is up the next ruler finishes your term and their own. Then there are the top 12, they rank in power from top to bottom (they can change ranks if they can defeat a higher rank in battle). After that your rank is decided by the amount of money you have, your blood (heritage), and if you have magic or not.
(The ranks go like this)
Rich strong magic
Poor/ gypsies (magical people who dropped out of school)
Malinates (half human, half beast. Kind of like our Indians. They are seen as less than human, and have their own ranking system)
The story is the basic good versus evil. A young girl with a tragic family past has incredible talents and must use then to over throw the evil queen now in power. The problem is that she gives the appearance of being good. (Good and bad is decide by the color of your energy (magic), black for bad, white for good, and then there are other colors for different things, like gold, blue purple, and even rainbow.)
The problem I am having is I put too many details in too quickly. All the things I have told you are only the background information. It not even the other details, including how the schools are set up, the world is divided between the top 12 and so forth. Anyone that could help with would be amazing.
