I am throwing my hat in the ring perhaps for a little exposure, even I don't get featured :3
Two girls dragged into a battle for the future…
As modern civilization crumbles under the yoke of a genetic supremacist organization, fae folk and daemons begin to reemerge: some wish to aid in man’s struggle, others desire to bring mankind to its knees. From the ashes of man’s plight rise seven reluctant heroes imbued with the power to save, or destroy, all that exists.
(This series is for an adult audience)
An inspiring/powerful quote that showcases the characters’ strengths (max 100 characters)
I dunno if it's healthy, because we all need time to mourn, but thus far, Kanna's main "inspiring speech" is
"But we don't get to mourn! We soldier on. You need purpose? We'll give you purpose."
The context is that she's the person leading the country to rebuild following a...oh god, don't be mad, pandemic (I started writing this in the early 2000s, surprising relevant today). She is holding it together as an adult, in spite of being 18 at the time of this speech.
Tell us what creating series means to you as a woman in the webcomic/webnovel industry.
This is why it's important to me to be a woman and write and draw in the industry:
I want to, and it makes me feel good. It is the same, I assume, for any other person. I enjoy writing, and I have something to say. And that's enough for me.
But beyond this, I want others to enjoy it. I have chosen to tell this story with a primarily female cast, mostly because this is what I want to see, and because there had been a void of this before mangka authors like CLAMP entered my scope of existence. They, as well as Takeuchi, provided me with inspiration to create female lead stories told from our perspective, and including magic and action (something that growing up, outside of Heavy Metal and Wizards, and She-Ra, I found hard to find. Bless Patricia C. Wrede for her Enchanted Forest Chronicles. This author is SOOOOO over looked).
Being a women is a matter of happy coincidence, however, if my being a woman writing and succeeding, even in just a small way, inspires other women who are held down, or held back: then I've done my job as a person. I've made someone's life a little better, and given them the strength and inspiration to DO. To CREATE, regardless of gender. It's enough that you are human, and you want to create, and you want to share in the success and love of creation. You deserve to be heard, too.
If that inspires other women to take on their passions, then I'm glad, because we gotta pull together, inspire, and support each other.
