Sweet Home

“You Are My Home” - Digital Oil Painting

Inspired by Suptober, theme: Home.

You are the one who reaches through the dark
When I’m afraid you warm the air
And when I close my eyes to sleep
You are my peace, you are my prayer

Chapter 2

“A miracle is about to happen to an unattractive loner guy.”

Fortunately, there is more to that. It started off with a highschool student being awfully bullied, then he decided to transfer for a change. One day, he woke up to a new body who had absolute physical features. Then his life started changing slowly.

Involves martial arts, gangs, rated-18 stuffs and lots of dramas

One of my favorites

“Having a handsome, kind and caring boyfriend like Elios means the world to Emma. Even a look at him makes her heart flutters. But little does she know about a secret lies deep in their relationship. What is the said secret?”

At first, you would think that it’s probably some stupid secret— relationship problems which includes cheating etc but IT IS NOT.

ROMANCE-THRILLER. It started off very strong for you to proceed

Gives Death Note vibes, and again, one of the few books I’m willing to wait for every update

“A sexy supernatural story about being out on your own, finding your dream apartment and discovering that your new place is haunted by a handsome spectral stranger from another dimension. Sure, HE can’t see you and YOU can’t touch him, but who said every relationship starts out perfectly?”

The summary sums it up, it’s very cute and heart fluttering but things could escalate hasty. It’s romance but with a tad of thriller and mystery, if you ask me

The art style is a masterpiece!

“After binge-watching beauty videos online, a shy, comic book fan masters the art of make-up, then sees her social standing skyrocket as she becomes her school’s prettiest pretty girl literally overnight. But will her elite status be short lived? How long can she keep her “real self” a secret? And what about that cute boy she likes? Could you imagine if he found out the truth?”

The infamous True Beauty, began with cute and sweet talks but as the story goes on, this is where your loyalty lies. Is Suho the one you want? Or is it Seojun? Or both— nope.

You’ll definitely love the art style!

Also you could learn some things about make-up and fashion

“Nobody paid much attention to John – just a normal teenager at a highschool where the social elite happen to possess unthinkable powers and abilities. But John’s got a secret past that threatens to bring down the school’s social order – and much more. Fulfilling his destiny won’t be easy though, because there are battles, frenemies and deadly conspiracies around every corner.”

You wouldn’t understand such things at first, nevertheless it gets better and better where there are lots of dramas on the doorstep.

Every character is good and well-made. And there aren’t much stories that has good characters where they need to encounter developments later on.

I’m not fond of fantasies but unOrdinary here also talks about real life situations, where life is unequal and standing at the top of the pyramid means well. While being at the bottom comes down to being nothing.
