Though my soul may set in darkness,
it will rise in perfect light,
I have loved the stars too fondly
to be fearful of the night.

Sarah Williams (1837 – 1868)

The Story

Welcome, dear readers. I suppose you have come here hoping to find more information about the unfolding story you have just read. Alas, it is my sad duty to inform you that you will most likely not find it here. It was originally my desire to include a brief summation in this section. However, the story has grown past my original outline and continues to evolve beyond the point where I can no longer foresee whether it will blossom into a rose or a poisonous flower. Thus, it will only do the story great injustice to even attempt a synopsis this early when so much is still shrouded in uncertainty.

Perhaps someday, as we continue to observe the lives of Daniel and Melanie as they weave the magical yet frightening world of Sola and Lune, we will have more than enough material to chronicle the struggle of both the steadfast children of the real world and the stouthearted youths bound in the world of words as well. I sincerely hope by then I may find the courage to fill this section with something of more value to the story to replace the pitiful apology of my own shortcomings.

For now, you will just have to hold my hand and trust me as we delve into the secret lives of two pairs of children whose worlds are separated by the logic of reality and the fantasy of fiction -- seemingly worlds apart, and yet not that different at all.
