Predictably, Aura has an answer. Somehow she always has an answer on hand? "It proves that Malala is independent."
"Great," Malia says, typing that, too. "Two more to go. I think one way the setting influences the character [Malala] is the fact that she's raised in Swat, which made her very open to everyone and she also values family very much, because of the way she was raised and the people she was raised by and with."
"That's a valid point," Tommy agrees, wanting to sound at least educated in front of Aura.
"True, true," the said girl comments, giving a shrug. "We should put that in, Malia."
- Part 3 of 15 Minute Snapshots
A broken royal family.
A fifth element among the four.
Two warring races forced as one and a lost prince destined to unite them.
Raised in the slums away from his scheming family, a prince grows up dreaming of revenge. However, blood is power, and despite his royal lineage, Ezra isn't an Elemental. Or so he believes. When he reencounters his darkly enthralling uncle, he finds himself facing new, enigmatic possibilities and unlocked powers. After being exposed to the multitude of injustices across the kingdom, Ezra soon realizes he has more to offer the kingdom than petty revenge.
- Part 1 of Immunity
Ryou, a relentlessly repressed and controlled accountant, accidentally slips between dimensions. Since he's a practical, cautious man and not a complete idiot, he retraces his steps and slips right back out again, but he brought someone along with him. And now his life is going to take a sharp turn away from "repressed" and "controlled" to very strange places indeed: into a warped image of the past and into a very uncertain future, through war and violence, to the very edges of reality and beyond.
