Entering the Gates to Psydem Publishing’s The Art of Braveity

02.09.15

How would I describe our next feature? Siguro, maihahalintulad ko ito sa isang kuwento. A tale.

And the story goes like this:

Once upon a time, there were two friends who dreamed about building a “house.”
The first friend asked, “Can we do it?”
The second friend answered, “Of course, we can.”
And so they built one.
The first friend said, “Now we have a ‘house’. But there are empty rooms.”
“Then, we need more friends to share our home with,” the second friend replied.
And so they invited more friends to live with them.
The first friend said, “Now, our ‘house’ is full, and we are happier than before. But I think we need to spread out our happiness.”
The second friend answered, “Then, let’s share it with others.”
And so they opened all their windows and doors — wide enough — to let their happiness be seen and heard by those people who passed by their ‘house.’
The story of two friends continued, until all their hard work came to fruition…
…Until The Art of Braveity was produced.
However, it was not yet the end. Because the real story of their dreams had only just begun. Continue reading…

Aleph and Luna: Moonless Infinity

By: Clovergiel ♣

 

I CAN STILL clearly remember my memories from that day. 

The day we first met. The day I first saw those sapphire-blue eyes melting me right where I stood as they stared back at me. The day everything I knew about love had changed – my perspective, my beliefs, my fear.

I stood there frozen, unable to utter anything sensible from this once clever mouth of mine. I admit, that guy had got me tongue-tied.

I held my breath, as I saw him slowly walking towards me. I could hear the sound of his footsteps, and it just made my breathing uneven. I think my body just started malfunctioning. I couldn’t even move a muscle. Let alone lift a finger.

But my mind reminded me, this couldn’t be. It’s not possible and… it’s forbidden.

But… my heart knew better than that. It was as if it had its own mind, functioning fully at that precious moment. Because right from the start, my heart already knew. And I knew, too.

I knew that I finally found a home for my fragile heart. Continue reading…

CYGNUS ENCHANTMENT

by Cambrielle

 

‘Quintin Cygnus, the once elegant, pure soul adept in love and kindness is tainted…’

Nagtakip ng tainga si Quintin. Paulit-ulit na umuugong sa kanyang isipan ang mga huling salita ni Garai, ang pinuno ng mga sumasamba sa diyosang si Ammit, the devourer of souls.

‘The king of the Swan Stronghold Eala is tainted… Pure soul drenched in blood… Forever tainted…’

Nandilim ang paningin ni Quintin. Binalikan niya ang bangkay ng kalahating tao, kalahating reptilya. He wrenched its crocodile head from its miserable shoulders.

He knew deep inside that there’s no going back. Once a killer, always a killer. He’s tainted for life. He sacrificed the purity of his soul to grab his chance for happiness. There’s a large hole in his heart that no one of his past lovers managed to fill. He never understood his never-ending ache. When he thought he finally found stability and happiness, it was always taken away from him. He can’t comprehend the source of his misery until he found her. Continue reading…

My Twisted Fairytale
by Cambrielle

 

“Emmaline, will you marry me?” Nakaluhod ako sa harapan ng babaeng tinitibok ng aking puso.

Napasinghap siya nang makita niya ang diamond engagement ring sa mga palad ko. “Andrei…” Naluha siya. Matutupad na rin ang pinapangarap naming happily ever after. She’s my Snow White and I am her Prince Charming.

“Andre–” Hindi na nakasagot si Emmaline nang may biglang dumating na babae, ang babaeng pinakaayaw kong makita.

“I believe you are asking the wrong woman, Andrei Declan Daciano. Dalawang buwan na akong buntis at ikaw ang ama.” continue reading…
