Transition and restart by Sten Düring

An Original English Light Novel

High school romcom. A bit of mystery, but mostly the kind of convoluted love story you’d expect from a Japanese manga. It’s over the top, coincidences occur too often, tropes aplenty and melodrama always trumps realism. Meta-posts are published in a different font. Posts are either meta or a piece of the story. . . .

A GREY WORLD

Editor’s First Impression

That’s probably because it’s hard to write them without letting yourself get strange in the process but in Addergoole, Lyn Thorne-Alder lets herself get weird and downright nuts sometimes to show us the world [more . . .]
