FUTURE FANTASY CHRONICLES

Cover By: Teresa Morgan

Light shall overcome all, but only after it stands side by side with the dark...

This is the story of a woman with little expectation from others, who rises and comes face to face with the most powerful competitors the world has ever seen. This is the story of her rise to greatness...

Good chapter. The little battle/training scene was done well. Generally this is alot of writers including me fail. Describing it well enough to paint a full picture, you did this well. I also like the way you introduced miles, (dont want to spoil it) so ill just say you trick the reader into initally thinking somthing... and then have it not that if that makes anysense. Also quite the ending, an ending that made me want to flip a table when i see that there wasnt more (this is good) well done :)

Thanks! Your comments are awesome! I hope my story continues to grab your interest. That was just a small taste of what this story is going to hold. It is largely about the tournaments and battles between magicians, so I try my best to create the scenes well.

I love it! Great descriptions. The tournament and elemental magic reminds me a little of Avatar - The Last Airbender tv/cartoon series...not sure if you ever watched it? If not, just out of interest - what were your inspirations for this?

Yes, I love that show! It was not a direct inspiration for this story, but I can say a bit of what I write is influenced by that show. But you will find that not all the magicians in this story rely on elemental magic. It is simply an art that some favor while others do not. I have been working with magic for a long time. The majority of my stories, few exceptions, focus on magic. This may have been inspired by avatar back in the day. But this current story was largely inspired by Saki and Chihayafuru. I do not believe they are well known shows, so I do not blame you if you are unfamiliar with them. They are both slice of life, but I was taken in by the competition and hurdles the characters had to face. I then combined it with my style of writing. They also encouraged me to stop making the protagonist the story's ace, and instead have them run to face the absolute strongest.

Okay, okay, do you think my response was long enough? I tend to do this!

Yes, a well-crafted chapter. Fantasy must be handled properly or it can turn into farce this was good. Regards Mabaker
