A stone tile with a message tied to it plummets down. It crashes through a roof, just beside a baby enjoying a lollipop.
Narration: The lofty. Living comfortably in their sky-high houses.

The tile bounces from a table out a window and lands hard on a wooden platform, almost crushing a herder's rats.
Narration: Along the wall of the Stately Tower. Secluded from the rest of the city. And untouched by Das Law that governs everyone else.

The tile continues falling.
Narration: Except on days like these.

The tile lands square on top of an owl person's head. Three bystanders freeze in shock of the impact.
Narration: When the outside world comes knocking. And then barges in through the roof.

Oh, the comedy just writes itself.

Hmh. I had a quick look at the spider’s recommendations (below).

It’s interesting to see what kind of things exist in other worlds: systems, governments, creatures, problems – and how people deal with them.

Feel free to ignore her if that’s not your thing.

Changes C/O David Bowie

All things change. From a couple brothers thrust into adventure, to a Fairy General coming face to face with the results of past actions, things will never be the same again.

Brothers – Postmasters Sprout and Oz become unlikely heroes after discovering a magic mailbox! A Postmaster's work is never done, especially with routes this deadly!

broken – A fantasy/horror story about a psychic zombie kid and a fairy general trying to help each other survive PTSD, a fascist government, and eldritch abominations.
