'The earth split open, from which poured a multitde of horrors, evils, and disasters. And the world was ravaged, while at the bottom of the crevice cutting the land in half, hope lay restlessly, forgotten.'
Dae is an average girl. Her waking thoughts are as normal as yours or mine, her aspirations are ordinary for a sixteen year old girl. It's her mother who is strange, who guards secrets every waking hour, who forbids the oddest things. Who forbids speaking of anything other than the mundane.
For sixteen years, Dae has never asked questions. But events are being set in motion, and the only person Dae can possibly think of to have answers is the very woman who refuses to give them.

[This is a very first and basic draft, so there will be mistakes, and this summary is likely to change. I'd really, really appreciate any help with suggestions, so please feel free to point out any errors, or scenes and chapters that could be improved. Encouragement would be helpful, too, as my support system is slightly lacking, but any comments will be more than enough. Lot's of luck with your own work, Telltale.]

(A first draft, open to suggestions and edits)
The creatures in fairytales are a myth. There are no creatures with fins instead of legs, or men that can change their shape. There are no gods, there is no religion. All forms of imaginatory thoughts are strictly forbidden, unless you are so young you cannot comprehend this. There must not be any talk of magic, or godly figures, or fantasy within the walls of the Noir house.
Dae has grown up without the free will to do and think as she pleases. But she cannot withstand the terribly beautiful dreams that visit her in her sleep and plague her through the days.
Especially when the things in her dreams visit her when she's not sleeping.
