Ahhh thank you for asking! I figured I should publish this along with a better synopsis than was on my original floor-shock post, in case anyone is curious. :3
Chameleon Moon is the story of a city called Parole. It’s been cut off from the rest of the United States. It’s under a quarantine, with a police force called Eye in the Sky surveilling everyone and making sure nobody gets in or ESPECIALLY out. This is for a couple of reasons. One is a secret. The other is the fact that thanks to a lifesaving drug (this thing cures cancer, AIDS, genetic conditions, basically any physical ailment) with some really unexpected side effects, virtually everyone in Parole has superpowers.
Some rock. (My main lady Evelyn has a voice that can hypnotize, enrapture, and shoot SONIC BLASTS THAT DESTROY BUILDINGS.) Some don’t. (This one poor babbu, Finneus, makes random explosions whenever he has emotions that aren’t happy. That means he can’t ALLOW himself to feel sad. Ever. If he feels sad, people die. He HAS to be happy. Always. And that’s a bit of torture.)
But everyone has something. Almost the entire population has some weird, beautiful, horrifying ability, and The Eye in the Sky will never let any of them escape. Parole is a locked-down city of heroes and “villains,” many of whom have no idea what they’re capable of.
Living in Parole wouldn’t be the end of the world (if you like having your every move watched by a totalitarian police force), if it weren’t for the lake of fire. Parole is like Venice. It’s sinking into the earth, except instead of water, it’s a freaking inferno blaze. Every day, more chunks of the city crumble, the hollow ground falling into the fire. Streets at a time. Blocks. It’s a fact of life that you learn hard and early, that every day might be your last, and you can never know who will fall into the fire next.
The story begins when Parole FALLS.
The story is about the events leading up to the collapse, exactly who caused it, who started the fire, and how anyone is going to survive it. (I’ll give you a hint. It rhymes with “the power of shove,” but it’s much nicer. <3)
A week before ashes ashes we all fall down, Regan, a lizard-man assassin on a mission to kill someone, runs into Evelyn. They kick some butt together, and… you’ll have to wait to find out the rest.
Thank you for asking. <3 thank you so much.
