Portals have always connected the realms and the planets that exist in this universe. When a people is threatened by an erupting volcano and the darkness it eventually unleashes, The Primevals of Phelia have no choice, but to bring their people through one such portal and into another realm that forever changes their being and their heritage. From normal humans, a new race is born. One that is endowed with much power, but with power there is always sacrifice and no one knows this better than Ira. A descendant of the Primevals, their blood runs pure in his veins and as such, his burdens are many and so are the responsibilities that threaten to weigh him down. Despite this, he was never meant to carry this load alone. He must strive to find his Queen and even though they are worlds apart, he must bring his bride home and even harder, convince her to stay and remain by his side even as he prepares to fight in the war ahead.
Can true love exist in a different time and place? When aspiring botanist, Hanna, inherits her grandmother's house in rural Korea, she sees it as the perfect hiding place from her flailing academic career. But when she hits her head while restoring her grandmother's garden, she awakens to find herself in Goryeo-era Korea--and the childhood friend of the kind and handsome Prince Chi. Now Hanna must try to return to her own time, while helping Chi as he prepares to inherit the Goryeo throne. But as time passes, Hanna finds herself becoming closer to Chi, and she must decide: should she return to her own time and carry out her dream of becoming a botanist, or should she stay with Chi, and risk the challenges, dangers, and heartbreak of life in the palace? ***Note: This story takes a creative license to history. While many of the historical details are correct, I wanted to take a lighter, character-driven approach. The language has been modernized significantly, and while some words are in Romanised Korean, most of the language is English (which we can assume is Korean through the characters' dialogue) Please enjoy!*****
Aluminaria hates her name. It is the weirdest name ever and the only thing quite outstanding about her life. Ira on the other hand is an Ancient or at least, their blood runs pure in his veins. His burdens are many as his responsibility is heavy. However, he was never meant to carry this weight alone. Now, worlds apart and separated by invisible barriers, Ira must strive to bring his bride home and even harder, convince her to stay and remain by his side to fight in the war that is sure to come.
Time seemed to stop for us as we gazed deeply into each other's eyes. Tears welled up as memories of us growing up together, although by a strange twist of fate that both binds us, yet separates us 300 years apart. "I found you." I choked up. "No. I found you." he carefully lowered his forehead against mine as if a slightest pressure would cause all of this to crumble into dust. Elizabeth is a girl growing up in a poor neighbourhood in the 1990s and Yongqi is the 5th Prince to the Qianlong Emperor of the Qing dynasty in the 1770s. The pair met in a bizarre incident and they become unconventionally best friends. As Elizabeth and Yongqi find love growing up, their biggest hurdle is time. They now fight against the limitations of time to be together. Except, it seems, fate has something else in stored for them.
