BLACK WATER SISTER x SEVERANCE

Begrudging spirit medium Lucky Le’s foolproof plan for surviving the apocalypse is simple: harbor alone in her abandoned suburban McMansion, miles away from the nearest commune of survivors. Only for clients willing to pay the high price of food and resources will Lucky use her loathsome powers.

However, a mysterious boy carrying her dead brother's ring arrives, disrupting her tenuous peace. Peter forces Lucky to grapple with the painful history of her inherited abilities and the two untangle a dark truth that spans from the Mekong Delta to the American Midwest.

Splendid Wicked Bones

adult / fantasy
[drafting]

RAPUNZEL x EMPRESS OF SALT AND FORTUNE

Ánh Sứ, the spoiled daughter of Lord Võ, should be in want of nothing. However, she starts sleepwalking to the sound of a glittering flute in the dead of night. Dreaming of the skeletal branches of a gnarled tree, she finds her cursed body commanded like a marionette to the same place: an abandoned garden where her mother was killed decades ago.

When Ánh Sứ finally hears the song again, the source is the naive and gullible flautist, Hào. Can the messy twosome solve the curse before Ánh Sứ loses control of her own body forever?
