My thesis is a short story set in the fantastical world of Fraylonia. The world itself is breaking apart under the strain of the evil Matron, who seeks to reform the world in her image. The majestic colors and magical beings of Fraylonia are all threatened to the point of extinction as she leaves death and destruction in her wake. Young Chausiku and the aged Elder appear with a prophecy of apocalyptic proportions. The presence of a strange hermaphrodite Norbert/Norberta confirms that the prophecy is coming true. A tragic explosion cripples the city of Trenbough and leaves all other life dead.
Along the way, forgotten powers and an old love are reawakened, causing an inverse world to appear and challenge the logic of what is possible.
It is up to the human, Sophia, who finds herself homeless and on the run, and Guy, a man who saves her from death, to save the world, or die trying.
