The Life of the Lonely/Reader

The Life of the Lonely/Reader

Originally, I felt like I had to write a review for this webnovel. Spoiler alert: I realized that I could not, too fast. Even now as I do this — whatever this may be, and I’m feeling like its a brain dump of sorts — I am not sure I can properly articulate why I love this webnovel; I do love this webnovel. I’ve included a few quotes from the story, and unfortunately, I did not write down which chapters they were in, when I was reading. I may go back to try to find them, but for now, they will just be quoted.

I suppose we should start with what this webnovel is: The Omniscient Reader’s Viewpoint.

These were stories between the stars.

YP – B1: Finale – Chapter 17

260 Days Until Promises and The Uncertain End 

Zeydar walked through the Academy of Arcadia listening to how everyone was freaking out. 

“MAY has won! They won the dispute!” Everyone seemed so very excited by the news leaving Zeydar thoroughly confused. Was it not taught in their classes that the Yasloughve Project was good for their people? It was what found magic. It was what had saved millions. It had led to the building of the CloudCities and UnderCities. Why was it that the Magicians wanted it stopped?

266 Days Until Memories and The Uncertain End (part 3)

Zeydar walked down the streets of Arcadia Staff wristband on and Tyler at his side. He was seven, a child, and looking to the sky above him in awe.

“Look at the way the sky moves Tyler.” Zeydar pointed up. The sky waved and flowed much like water. It sparkled and glowed, different colors swirling through it.

“That’s the sun’s reflections on the glass and clouds.”

But it wasn’t. It was the magic. It was the magic and Zeydar knew better than to talk about the magic in front of Circles. It scared them. He didn’t want to scare them. He wasn’t listed as a Star yet, after all.

“Where are we headed?” Zeydar asked.

“Where?” Tyler asked with a smile. “Why… The Arcadian council building.”

“Arcadian council building?” Wasn’t that at home? At the academy?

“Not on the Star campus. That’s the Superior council building. This one is for all the world, specifically for the council in charge of Arcadia and her tower.”

“Why are we headed there?”

“To get you tested.”

“But I’m not eight yet!” Zeydar tried to contain his excitement. Being tested and marked meant that he would be able to start magic lessons with casting. It meant he’d learn to use the Staff on his arm, not wear it only for protection. It meant that he’d be enrolled in the academy and wear the cool uniform. It meant he’d be a Star officially — as he’d always known he was a Star. He could see the magic. It talked to him.

“No, but the Superiors have put in this special request.”

“You’re a Superior.”

“I’m the one who suggested it to the council.” Tyler laughed. They approached the tall skyscraper, entering the building to see many people busy about moving in their own way. “Here we are. Stay close now.”

Zeydar grabbed Tyler’s hand moving with him as they headed towards the reception desk. The secretary directed them inward towards the testing facility for the children. When they arrived all the other children were with their guardians, worried. They were going to get sorted into X, Circle, and Star. It was the most important day of their lives.

“Tyler.” Zeydar whispered. “What if I’m not a Star?”

“Not a Star?” Tyler looked to Zeydar wide eyed. “Zeydar we’ve known you were a Star since you were born.”


“Really.” The way Tyler said it, almost sounded sad.

“What class am I?”

“That I can’t tell you until you are marked as a Star.” Tyler smiled at him with soft compassion.

“But you are sure?”

“I’m sure.” Tyler’s voice dropped as he looked on ahead. Zeydar remembered being tested by the Superiors to hold a Staff and for them to check his magic with crystals. They had never told him the results despite how curious he was. They had given him his first Staff for protection to wear at four. Was he a Class 1? They were rare and highly protected? It would only make sense. He was a Class 1. He had to be.

“Zeydar Arcadius.” All Stars were named after their city of birth. They weren’t like Circles that belonged to a family or X’s who had no last names. He was a part of the Tower itself.

Standing Zeydar skipped to the tester leaving Tyler’s side. He walked into the room and was asked to place his hand on the crystal testing machine. As he did as asked they declared him a Star and that he’d go to the Superiors to be tested for rank. From there they led him to another machine as they called the next child in. They took his hand and placed it under the inking machine. Clenching his fist, Zeydar blinked back tears and tried not to cry out as the machine dug into his skin to permanently mark him. Once the cooling salve was placed on, followed by a bandage, Zeydar felt unfiltered joy. He was a Star.

“Do not remove it for seventy-two hours.” The tattoo operator sent him back to Tyler who waited outside.

Zeydar held up his hand to Tyler. “I’m a Star.”

“I told you.” Tyler offered his hand out and Zeydar took it with his other hand. “No, touching it for seventy-two hours. You don’t want them to have to fix it. That is far more painful.

“I understand. Now tell me? What rank am I?” Zeydar asked Tyler.

Tyler looked to the doors and answered in a hushed voice as they exited the building. Zeydar blinked twice trying to place the answer. Class what? He’d never heard of it before. Tyler looked down to him and cracked a smile. “Just kidding. Class 1.”

Zeydar let the other answer slip away. He was a Class 1. After all, how could he be a class that didn’t exist?

266 Days Until Memories and The Uncertain End (part 2)

Zeydar stood before the council of hooded Superiors. He wasn’t entirely sure why he had been called that day. He was supposed to be in therapy. Why had they messed with his sessions? They had put them there after they had found him in the—

Fire, blood, screams. Explosions. Water, fire, electricity, ice, wind, earth, metal bending. The sound of cars flying and glass breaking. The sound of things falling and crashing. The way that the world was glowing in color and his senses were alive at their peak. He wanted them all dead, all of them. He would get home after he killed them all. The fear in the eyes of those who would soon be dead. With the flick on his wrist he cast a spell, the circle forming with his intentions alone and without a spell. It had to have been a dream. It had to be a lie.

“Zeydar.” The council head brought Zeydar out of his chills, shivers, and the memory of him destroying the Tower of Arcadia. He had single handedly killed millions of people in his rage and as he was unable to control his powers. He had killed Tyler. He had killed his family. He had killed so many people all with magic he could not control. “We have called you here to discuss the events of The Night of Oblivion.”

275 Days Until Chaos and The Uncertain End (part 5)

The location that Evester’s saviors brought him to was hidden from the rest of LakeLost, a collection of homes, barricaded together and protected with metal slabs. The houses were gutted and inside there were children, so many children, playing. Orphans, Evester immediately realized. Orphans of all ages. Those who had lost their families either during the Great Catastrophe or on The Night of Destruction to the Aralax. Their presence alone told Evester that this was a safe place.

After almost dying from the drop, he wasn’t sure he wanted to trust them. The siblings had been ready, but the oldest had purposely not told him until it was almost too late. He knew it was an attempt to get rid of him. He had, however, been prepared for anything and had done far riskier jumps in his life. Making the jump on a moments notice was child’s play.

“Heia.” A man approached them. “What happened?”

275 Days Until Chaos and The Uncertain End (part 3)

Walking through the city, Evester moved past the tunnels that led towards emergency living quarter comprised of tents and makeshift metal homes. The Catastrophe had done a number on LakeLost with entire sections of the city lost, or sealed off. Some parts Evester had noticed were tampered with. Grave robbers? Who would care when most of those who lived there were dead anyway? He couldn’t care for the tampering. To find this Heiphilia girl in this city of Xs was going to be a task. Where would he even start in earnest?

“You will need a new coat for the winter, get it now. We have high demand,” A woman called out to him as he walked into what seemed to be another market district.

The winter? It would be half way to the deadline during winter. Where would he be then? Would the space program have been completed by then? “No.”

The bags were stacked tall, packed full of things Heia knew and items she had never seen before. It had been shortly after breakfast that her siblings had come back home. Seven smiling faces told her that there was only good news, but even then she wasn’t sure. 

“What is this junk?” Heia picked up a heavy yet flat block of metal. They had brought many of them.

275 Days Until Chaos and The Uncertain End (part 1)

The UnderCity was dirtier than Evester expected, and that was saying something considering how he had lived in the Towers and atop the LowerLands for a few weeks. He had figured that UnderCities would be like CloudCities in terms of cleanliness. How wrong he was. He wanted to attribute the smell and musk to the Catastrophe, but after almost eight months wouldn’t they have fixed it already? Did the X’s like living within their own filth and disease? There was no way any decent human being was that desperate. However, X’s were genetically inferior, he had learned this within his classes. Their inferiority often came in their own learning and intellect, he had to remind himself.

He found it hard to believe that any intellectual species would be complacent as such, however.
