AESTAS ¤ THE YELLOW BALLOON

- LAUNCHES APRIL 23, 2024 -

As humanity begins to tame the stars above, at what point do a group of colonists turn into a unique, indigenous people who will band together to protect their homeland... no matter what?

Lilit Sarkisian was an average young woman who made a living welcoming new immigrants to the floating city of Aestas, soaring high above the clouds on Venus. Then, one day, she met her new clients Ahmad Al Zaheri and Durojaiye Yakubu. From that moment onward, her life irreparably changed and forever altered the course of the place she had always known as home. Somehow, these two became her best friends in the whole universe, and her most loyal coconspirators.

Aestas appeared to be a successful colony, much more so than places like Mars where terraforming had ultimately failed. Yet the powers-that-be, both on Venus and Earth, refused to do anything to alleviate the pressures caused by its exploding population. To fully resolve these issues, Lilit found herself evolving from an unknown civil servant to the leader of a revolution to a dangerous interplanetary symbol. Her story did not end there, though, nor did the machinations of those who had other plans for her birthplace.

With the help of her most trustworthy companions Ahmad and Durojaiye, was Lilit able to save the irreplaceable Venusian society from forces far more powerful than her?

STARBUILDERS

Twenty years ago, the stars above Nothaar Akii’s head literally changed.

Christening it the Sky Shift, Nothaar found that this event was just the harbinger of a devastating metamorphosis that was to befall his world. More than anything, though, it was the children. Newborns came out of the womb with strange physical features, far different than anything seen before. As they grew up, the youths intuitively spoke a tongue that no one else understood. After learning that these conditions were not isolated to his far northern village, Nothaar set out on a long journey of discovery, taking him all the way to the southernmost tip of the land.

With his expedition seemingly completed, Nothaar decided to retrace his steps and share his discoveries with everyone he had encountered along the way. However, those plans were quickly waylaid. Soon after commencing his return, he chanced upon a falling star that had crashed into the earth. Expecting to find a rock filled with rare and valuable resources, he instead met Syraaq Sec and Ifuwukoogeeq. The mysterious duo not only fluently spoke the Language of Children, but also possessed knowledge far beyond Nothaar’s comprehension.

And then they declared that Nothaar was the key to unraveling a great injustice, one that had been perpetrated upon his world by the Starbuilders.

UNTITLED 1

- WORKING TITLE -

One day, a strange boy about her age just showed up in front of her school and asked her to sit down for minute to talk. She didn’t know him, nobody knew him, but for some reason he knew her. He knows things about her that he shouldn’t—private things, hidden things, things no one else knows, things she has never uttered aloud. For reasons she can’t explain, she is drawn to him; but she’s also terribly frightened by him. He says they were not supposed to have met yet, but he could not wait any longer. He says he was so lonely without her. From what she has been able to discover, he shouldn’t be missing her because he shouldn’t know her, either. Something seemed to happen a few months ago that changed everything for him. Can she trust it was what he claims?

HERRENVOLK

During World War II, Hitler managed to set up an underground lair that the Nazis populated with "perfect" people. As the war turned, the secret society was forgotten about and everyone who knew about them was killed. Nearly a century later, they are discovered by accident. As archaeologist, psychologists, historians, and others are exposed to the lost nation, they are impressed with how peaceful the Nazi descendants are and how well their society runs. The Nazis do not know much about the war and do not carry a hatred of other people. They just know they are the chosen ones destined to be the best.
