A picture of Elyan White

Autumn greetings, m’lady Elyan, your faraway friend Tatsuya is here. How are you doing? I apologise again for our delay… But our days are going quite busy even in our holidays. And to make things worse, we have to “shift” from our laptop to computer.

But today, I saw you in my dreams and drew you like it. Would you please tell me how you really look like so that I can colour you?

My warmest regards to you, my amazing lady, and keep shining like you do!

An Invitation

An Invitation

M’ladies and m’lords, here I am again. I have had the luckiest opportunity to visit a distant, faraway land called Lumis, by the one and only Elyan White.

It is, yes I confess, my first inter-stellar travel, and I am indeed in a silvery light. I am waiting here, at Raisen Port. I thank you deeply, m’lady, for having me.

The Adventurer’s Guide: Cygnet

This is the most amazing and exciting event in my entire journey through the Den of Dreams: A collaboration with the one and only Elyan White, the awesome author from Phantasmagorium and Lumis. Here is her tale from Lumis, a very interesting place, residing among the stars. And to believe that Tatsuya can tour there!

We both agreed on a set of questions to create a visitor’s guide for passing tourists, so you’re welcome to embark on our adventures with us, if you think you can make the journey.

1. The meaning of your world. Why do you think it was given?

Cygnet. The Child of Swan.

Well, there are hundreds and thousands of name by which people call our planet but perhaps every name translates more or less into “Swan Child”. Here is a common legend about the origin that one day, on 36 Summer, Year of Turquoise Dragon (in Earth calender, 26 June 2019) I heard.

2. How did your world start?

Legends vary place to place, and from people to people. Here are a few theories I collected from my school friends of Cygnet:

Haruo: With fire of course, man.

Rin: Hmm, certainly not something I’d know! Why don’t ye go an’ check the origin stories, eh?

Edaeda: Oceans, rivers, seas and water.

3. What are the major communities?

There are three major communities in Cygnet, each with its own history, myth, culture, food, drinks and languages. There are other tribes of course, and so are other sub groups.

  • Ykeadjnn: (pronounced ki-a-jin) They are the natives of the planet and cover about 70 percent of the population. Golden haired, big eyed, they live by the coasts, worship water, moon, and lord Yakae.
  • Euclonic (pronounced Eu-klo-nik) They are present around 19 per cent of the population. Highly technical, adaptive, diplomatic, they live in very cold areas where snow never melts. They can speak an Earth language: English.
  • Zkyeatto (pronounced za-ki-e-to) They are present around 7 percent of the population, and are often conflicting with Ykeadjnn. Dark eyed, shrouded in mysteries and legends, they live by the hills, worship nature, sun, and the fire. Two sub-groups include the creative, emotional Quya (pronounced Ku-ya) and the fiery and galiant Ywaya (pronounced ya-ya). {I am a Quya Zkyeatto, by the way 😉 }

4. One line to describe your world?

Anything and everything is possible.

5. Your favourite place to tour in your world?

Many, many, many! I love touring in the medieval ages of Mhokaizi (pronounced Ho-kai-zi) empires, Whatou (pronounced Wa-ha-to) and Tuorin empires, and playing around our school in Linnet Town. Warrior’s Land, where Quya Zkyeatto people go after death is an interesting place too… 😉

Well, our journey is not over yet, there continues our path to Cygnet…

A big thank you to everyone reading and joining us! ❤
